    That is a very different list of course. The "you know your a lefty" list was written by rightys according to their own distorted stereotypes of leftys, and casts all sorts of nasty aspersions on anyone daring to be to the left of the spectrum. This list is obviously written by a bunch of homeschool Moms (why not Dads I wonder) to tell everybody how wonderful homeschooling is.

    Incidentally, most of that list ought to apply to any parent who takes an interest in their children's education whether they are homeschooled or not.

    Yeah, OK, while claims that Bush=Hitler, righties lack compassion and are greedy, conservatives are racists and unintelligent, Christian fundamentalists all want to blow up abortion clinics, homeschooled kids are uneducated and poorly socialized, etc. —all par for the course for the More-On crowd and their ilk—are not bigoted lefty stereotypes but fair comments.

    Good grief, you're a wetter blanket than I thought.

    Nobody here has made such claims.

    That makes your bigoted righty stereotypes ok, does it?

    Just sick of the same old bullshit stereotypes out of Jono, day after day, week after week. You're completely right, I shouldn't rise to the bait - and I'll have to stop soon because we are stuck in a completely pointless loop.

    And this is so different from Andrew Bolt on his blog, as well as numerous other Rightmedia sites, promoting Rossiter's theories how?

    At least Bolt has the critical distance to fess up that he enjoyed Rossiter's theory more than he believed it (while also endorsing some of Rossiter's comments of a not-so-psychiatric nature.)

    As for the whole "lefty" thing, ask the Tassie greens who I have endless flamewars with on Tasmanian Times if I'm a lefty and you will get an almost unanimous "hell nooooooooooooooooooo!" In fact, as the AusPolitics test showed, I am more or less centrist on average except for so-called "traditional values" issues. I may (or may not, depending on your standpoint) be deemed "left-leaning" but I am definitely not a "lefty" or "leftist". Anyone who thinks I am is probably to be too far from the centre to tell!

    Kevin,

    Did anyone call you a lefty?
    The whole list is also a test of sense of humor.

    Ooops, raw nerve?

    Do they get to immerse themselves in your vital contributions? I just did a search on "find all posts by The Comrade". Wow. Heady stuff, mate.

    I can only assume this outburst is a psychological brotherly reaction from the Comrade on behalf of the sleighted Lefties. Chill.

    Present! But so what? I have a whole heap more respect for Kevin than a monster pile of righties on most issues. It's just that Kevin's a bit dickie on the social stuff, that's all
