What I'm doing here is dissecting and documenting the contrarian debate.
I share these experiences because I believe rational students and others who want to communicate serious science and engage in a constructive learning debate, (as opposed to the political circus debate), should become aware of what they are dealing with when trying to rationally dialogue/debate with Republican/libertarian characters as they endlessly parrot their bankrupt jingles and ignore everything you try so hard to explain.

I might point out, if I choose not to publish a comment, I will acknowledge said comment and explain why I've chosen not to publish. But then, I'm actually into pursuing a constructive dialogue. Even if I'm not as nicie about it as most would like.
