The beat goes on -
There are two problems with accepting hypochrisy, platitudes and demagoguery when they can score your side a debating point. 1.The debate quickly degenerates and 2.You inevitably end up getting bit on the rhetorical ass. There can never be common ground if neither side is willing to enter honestly into a dialogue over real issues, presenting cogent arguments supported by verifiable facts.
Just throw a bunch of blather up against the same wall to see what sticks. It's all a bunch of talk. It solves nothing and it means nothing.
