SkepticOverlord, it seems like you're placing a lot of blame on the liberals here. What about those conservatives that have been posting about
Obama's birth certificate-- or those that have been making false stories-- or have been making questionable claims about Obama before he's done
anything? Tons of conservatives have talked about a lot of things with baseless claims-- accusing liberals of doing things which is outrageous-- or
just putting a spin on a liberal idea to make it seem like it's a hanous crime-- like saying abortion is a holocaust. I don't see why so much blame
should be placed on much of the liberals here. How about the conservatrolls that seem to be the most vocal that make up stuff and just believe any
conspiracy just because it sounds good? What do we do about them? I applaud you for reinstating a policy that we've had for quite some time but I
just ask for the same of the conservatives.
I've seen a lot of baiting by the conservatives, with them calling him the messiah, and, them trying to make liberals seem ignorant, when they're
ignorant of the last 8 years. I've also seen conservatives try to rewrite history. Please, are you telling us that we have to have a backbone and
hold ourselves to decorum when you're not asking for them to do the same? I can point out tons of conservative troll threads meant to inflame
liberals or inflame other posters that had little grain of truth to them... but you forget that the thing is that they're attacking Obama and he's
only been in office for a few days when we used to support Bush for at least the first few years he was in office... but they're already against
Obama... I mean at least give him a chance.

Where is your proof to disprove their claims and proofs???
Isn't that what this Board is for? Active argument, discussion, suggestions, etc.... Why would I accept your sayings, statements, averments,
allegations, and claims of truth telling any less, or more so, than another. Doesn't Re- Visionist history teach us that history goes to the victor?
How do I know you are not a Re- Visionist? How do you know that I am not? To protect all, shouldn't all history be pressed forward? If an attack on
your culture or beliefs is an offense to you and the attacks are not directed specifically to you, then, don't you have the option to ignore the
poster or posters? Why should I let one person's narrow or broad world view dictate what information, for or against, an issue I get to be exposed to
and that is available for me to be allowed to research and/ or not allowing for such claims as I see fit?
I think Israel took the land from the Caananites by Force, and are still taking it by Force from their Muslim Ancestors, just as America did to the
American Native People's, but, that doesn't mean I don't want to know all sides, fabricated or not. Sometimes what a group chooses to fabricate is
just as educational and telling as what is not fabricated.
Personally, I think all sides are ignorant if the whole of all sides is not known and understood when deciding an issue. Is it uncivil of me to
believe most folks, such as I, live in ignorance, because of Censors and Re- Visionists who are only concerned with their own feelings or biased
agendas about certain knowledges and what can or can't be revealed?
And aren't you only baited if you allow yourself to be hooked? Doesn't the ignore button work for just such occassions?
