We are become a nation built upon the fallacy of ad hominem

Richard Hayes
I agree with your point about listening carefully to these
various reviled folks --wheat from chaffly. However, ad hominem
arguments and statements are a universal human practice--they
often include praise (often flattery) as well as opprobrium--so
probably not limited to this nation nor to Buddhism where, if I
recall right, Hizzoner made a few choice ad hominem remarks

Ad feminemly/hominemly yours,
