No need for a "ready room" Max. Just the ability to read the OP and a rational mind to spot the BS and the 60 seconds to it takes to examine the
Thats the funniest thing about these threads...they don't require a genuis or even 5 minutes of examination or research to debunk...yet your
camp continues to rally around each new pile of BS anew with some form of scrambling desperation.
....damn the facts, screw the truth, this man must be stopped. The American public is dumb, feed them whatever we like. It should be the GOPs
Without respect for truth or honesty the American public will continue to appropriately view the far right and GOP machinery as NOT CREDIBLE,
DISHONEST PROPAGANDISTS...and yes these threads on ATS are just one representitive lesion of many upon the diseased GOP party.
For the nations sake...get well soon.

Silence or personal attacks....they aren't interested in the truth...no light-bulb moments...the facts have nothing to do with it.
I see you chose personal attacks...
Maybe you could try to man-up[ next time and post something like..."I really don't like Obama and think his policies are bad for this
country, but BS is BS and this is BS and has been proven so"
Just a suggestion. At least I would be able to afford you a modicum of respect and take you seriously once in a while.
BTW - You did manage to avoid this thread. You contributed nothing to the discussion of the OP..just personal attacks.

Wow, all that angst because of my five line post?
It's not my camp.
I am not a political zealot, nor a member or support of the so-call GOP. I hate no one (that could change, I suppose) and
most importantly, what you perceived as an attack, was not so intended.
I understand that is what you are dealing in, issues of attacks and barbs of counterattacks, but that paradigm holds no value to me.
I believe that the OP, just as you (or I for that matter) deserve a modicum of respect regardless of the position we may take on any issue.
I was simply responding to the mean-spirited way the collective came down on those posters of opposing views (who were equally 'eager' to submit
their thoughts.) The humor I thought I employed was obviously lost to all but myself.
I can honestly say that I am not inclined to apologize since in retrospect, I don't think what I posted was 'personal' or an 'attack' in any way.
It was directed at the 'cooperative' nature of the 'debunking' effort, which took a very nasty tone with anyone daring to opine differently on
My 5 line post was non-contributory? Perhaps, if you so judge it. But my judgment was that it was a way to contrast the verbal assault provided to
the OP and those participating in the thread. Facts don't have to be delivered in an 'in your face' or demeaning manner to remain viable facts.
I won't bother to go too much further here, because I don't want to interfere with the righteous rantings of those who - quite fervently - insist
that the mere act of scrutiny is 'offensive' to their sensibilities. Or even those who will rant about a man who is neither in control of his
situation, nor the architect of his term of public service.
U2U me if you wish to discuss the matter further, I would like to assure you, I am not a hateful or spiteful poster, but I suspect you have already
categorized me as such for your like-minded members. I would just appreciate it if you saved your disparaging comments for a more private forum where
you can tell me that you can't take me seriously, or you can refuse to offer me respect, without insulting me publicly.
