You talk about whining. Now thats funny.


I thought so too, thanks.


You have 1800 plus posts and virtually no threads under your hand.


What does that mean to you? Really, what exactly does pointing that out do? Am I supposed to make more threads? What would you like me to make a thread about? Am I supposed to have so many threads for so many posts? Is that a rule I never saw? Can you explain this?


I watch you continuously descend on threads in an attempt to derail them and berate posters.


Derail? Ha! Examples would be.......



Good one.

Speaking of berating people, this post here...the one I am replying to... the one talking about how few threads I have...it is praise?


You cherry pick posts,


Cherry pick? Explain that to me. Show me examples. How about I just make up things that you do and list them with no basis in reality as well. Would that make for a fun discussion for you?


criticize,


Guilty.


assume,


Example?


accuse


Example?


and WHINE


Example?


and yet you lack the conviction to create your own threads.


Huh? Are you serious with this argument? Your entire political argument is wrapped up in my thread count???? Stars and flags mean a lot to you, don't they? If you want to discuss how many threads I have and what that means...start a thread. So far, it is off topic and derailing.

Let me see, you are berating me with an off-topic whinefest that could only belong in it's own thread but is not there because someone failed to make one. Got you so far?



Nice going. Keep up the good work at vilifying the Tea Party,


Sorry to interrupt but you seem to have spilled some of your talking points. It seems you have just layed out a bunch of empty accusations at my feet only because you do not agree with something I said. Where is any argument against anything I said? Where is any evidence of my vilifying the Tea Party? Please show me that any of the things you have said are even remotely true. I asked a question. How you see that as vilifying is beyond me so either explain all these lies or go start a new thread and hang out there a while.


Conservatives, Republicans or anyone else who disagrees with the current administration.


Gosh, I am having such a hard time wading through all your quotes and evidence and proof of ANY of that crap you just said that I have no idea how to respond.

Oh...right, I do. Shhhhhhhhhhhhhh. Just randomly tossing out empty accusations may get you stars but if that is what you are here for, enjoy. I would really rather have this conversation with someone based in reality with...you know...actual things that back up what they say.

Did I repeat myself? Shoot me now. Not intentionally emasculating, I was joking - but if they fall off that easy they probably didn't belong there in the first place.
BTW you are trying to reach "Her" level. Does this avatar look like a guys avatar?

Hope you are a good climber.

So this law is only in effect within visual distance of the border? Would that not just be "border patrol" or do you have a grave missunderstanding of this law?

You FAIL to see the obvious. If the Federal Border patrol had been doing what it should be doing, and if Obama had not cancelled plans to complete the border fence, then there would be no NEED for this bill. The fact is that neither Bush, Obama or the previous administrations were EVER serious about keeping illegal immigrants out. They pay lip service to border patrols, but give a side wink to immigrants and the exploiters of the immigrants, letting them know by their inaction that illegal crossing are ok.
This bill is absolutely necessary for the welfare of Arizona, both economically and public safety wise, BECAUSE THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT IS NOT DOING ITS JOB. Period!


You FAIL to see the logic and reality of the situation and that would be why each of your posts is a complete distraction from the question I asked. You are having a really tough time actually answering me, discussing the reality of this bill, or staying on topic. These pseudo-political rants sure seem to be popular today but you did not address any of the things I have brought up to you. Nothing in your post explains how this bill will help, be implemented, carried out, or solve the problems you just mentioned.

Can you all please take your little notecards and put them away. Try having something real to say when you respond to me, otherwise - respond to someone else.

I DIRECTLY responded to your TWO QUESTIONS:

You see, sentences that END in a QUESTION mark are QUESTIONS. I ANSWERED your QUESTIONS.
Look, you are not making sense, you ask TWO questions, then tell me I did not answer your questions, when I DIRECTLY DID answer your qurestions.

It is obvious that you are nothing but a troll, and I will not play your game anymore. I have added your name to my ignore list, because I don't wish to waste time answering your QUESTIONS, that you NOW DENY that you asked, or alternately, that I DID answer.
Have a nice LIFE.

simply pointing that you are quick to troll, attack and derail threads and posters with your condescending remarks and yet you lack the conviction to create your own threads that reflect your personal opinions and ideologies. Give it a try you might just enjoy it.

No need to provide quotes to back up my statement. Your posts speak for themselves.

If it was about earning as many stars and flags as possible I would be posting anti "Faux News", Palin and Beck threads all day.

I quickly pointed out that if you were serious then you lack the will to actually think about it and really address what I said. I also pointed out the flaws in your answers. You replied with a string of personal attacks. If that is your best effort, then so be it.




You see, sentences that END in a QUESTION mark are QUESTIONS. I ANSWERED your QUESTIONS.
Look, you are not making sense, you ask TWO questions, then tell me I did not answer your questions, when I DIRECTLY DID answer your qurestions.


Because I pointed out the serious flaws in what you call an answer. I did also already say that if that was a serious attempt then fine, you have no answer.




It is obvious that you are nothing but a troll, and I will not play your game anymore. I have added your name to my ignore list, because I don't wish to waste time answering your QUESTIONS, that you NOW DENY that you asked, or alternately, that I DID answer.

So let me see if I got this story straight. I asked something. You gave me a BS blowoff answer. I seriously addressed the flaws. You attacked me personally. I pointed out how weak and empty that was. You put me on ignore. Thanks for your time!

First of all, you are again just saying things and not backing them up. If I am a troll, show me how and where I demonstrate this. If I attack and derail, please show me where I am doing this. I good place to start would be to stop derailing by attacking me. That might help you look.

Second of all, who gives a rats behind if I create my own threads. Seriously, what does that mean? What if I had 3000 threads. Would that make my point in this thread more credible? Would that make my opinion on any given subject more worthwhile? I really do not get why that even matters to you and would love to know. I am doubtful asking twice will get an answer any faster than asking once did though.


Give it a try you might just enjoy it.


Really, explain why you are so worried about how many threads I have made. Obviously I have made more than 0 so I have tried it. You sound as though you have some issues.


No need to provide quotes to back up my statement. Your posts speak for themselves.


That is kind of what I thought you would say. That is always the answer given around here when asked to prove a lie.


If it was about earning as many stars and flags as possible I would be posting anti "Faux News", Palin and Beck threads all day.


Yet, two posts wasted just to talk about how many threads I started?

Lame Stream Media...Lame Stream Media?

This is new jargon to me. Thought you maybe came up with it on an off-moment (it is kinda lame)...no offence, buddy

But today I read the phrase in a Doonesbury comic attributed to a Sarah Palin Doll. (yes, satire, I know)

Say it ain't so...tell me you aren't lifting hackneyed phrases from that camp. Whatever the motivations of the Tea Party movement, any utilisation of her as anything other than a poster girl for a gun mag is doomed. Simply doomed.

Actually, I picked up that phrase from threads of others, and felt that the phrase fit. Having seen the half-arsed approach that virtually all of the media use in "reporting", I felt it perfectly described virtually all of the media, both left and right. The LSM never lets facts get in the way of a good story. The fact that Palin may use it, doesn't in any way diminish the glove-fit of the term to the media. Cheers.

Ok...but in my humble opinion, her use of the phrase detracts from any charm as a bon mot. Too bad...

Honestly? I feel that the tag Main Stream Media (MSM) carries the message that it is not the be-all and end-all of global awareness. And to suggest that there are other data streams worth attention carries the implication that what the MSM gives us is inadequate. The rest is up to the user to figure out.

Amen Brother, what you say is 100% on point, they claim to love free speech and all the other things that make America free but as the video below shows they are nothing but lying scum.



Here is a video of the "Tea Party" acting like Nazis because they cant handle the truth about how their masters are crooks and criminals.

I may not like Pelosi but I sure as hell will take her over Dicky Cheney or GWB any day of the week.

For those that slam Obama for the debt we are in, you know damn well it started with GWB, if the money was spent on Bombs you would be ecstatic watching the brown people get blown up on Fox.

I cant say it enough, the Tea Party is nothing but the militant face of the G.O.P and it will not be long before they turn violent.

Interesting take right here...and doesn't strike me as a whiny Lib...

The Tea Party movement has left the realm of a voluntarism and has succumbed to fundraising pond scum. www.thepoliticalcesspool.org...




Wow that sounds like about 99% of whats associated with the democratic party. Bottom feeders and pound scum.


I am not even a Democrat but I have to say this.

Thats great, look at what GWB and his scumbag supporters did to this country over 8 years and you have the nerve to come here and call the Democrats bottom feeders when the fact is that 80% of the Tea Party are made up of G.O.P hypocrites being lead by criminals.

Keep thinking you will spark a civil war, you will find that the majority of the country is dead set against the G.O.P also known as the Tea Party.

Why?

Because everyone knows they are hand puppets of the G.O.P who are even more criminal and perverted than the Democrats, being a Libertarian I can tell you that yes Obama will probably bring in socialism but you really do deserve it since you loved the man that paved the way for it.

You made you bed now lie in it, if you guys get violent don't be surprised when nobody has your back.

I will support my President against all of you because by a LONGSHOT he is truly the lesser of two evils.

Secret Republican Agenda for 2012: Return America to the Middle Ages!

The Republican Governors Association begins its meetings today, and candidates are vying to lead the GOP going forward. A poll shows that most Republicans favor Alaskan Governor Sarah Palin as their presidential nominee for 2012, followed by Baptist minister and former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee. An attractive new face is Bobby Jindal, Louisiana's Governor. All share one striking trait - they don't believe in evolution! I have obtained a secret tape of party leaders planning the Republican platform for the 21st Century.

www.theocracywatch.org... Rise of the Religious Right in the Republican Party

"This Republican Party of Lincoln has become a party of theocracy." U.S. Representative Christopher Shays, R-CT, (New York Times 3/23/05)

blog.micshots.com...

Main Navigation MicShots: The Republican Agenda... The Republican Agenda... The Republican agenda in the United States of America is quite simple: Stop Obama from accomplishing anything so he does not win in 2012. Period. The GOP has no other objective. They have no plan to reform health care. They have no plan to fight terrorism. They have no plan to do anything but oppose whatever Obama proposes. There is absolutely nothing Obama can say or do that will satisfy the Republican base. When we voted for Obama, we knew we were voting for health care reform. Because Obama tried to gain Republican support for health care reform the whole thing has been derailed. Let this be a lesson to the Democratic Party. Republicans have absolutely no interest in working with Democrats. The problem is that Republicans are far more committed to supporting causes that make little sense than the Democrats are to changing things. Such is the nature of hate and ignorance. The Democrats are under the illusion that common sense will prevail. This is obviously not the case.
Michael Shatz
tpmcafe.talkingpointsmemo.com...

The Republican Agenda: Keep America Ignorant and Miserable, at any Cost The Republican Party is a coalition of three separate constituencies with confluent interests. The first group is made up of traditional conservatives. These are highly patriotic Americans who believe in limited government, the primacy of the people over government, and fiscal responsibility. But the other two groups that have coalesced within the GOP are much more malevolent - international business interests, and social bigots. It is the former of these two, international business, that controls the GOP.
Eric Wattree
www.huffingtonpost.com...

In fact, the only people actually pushing the Fairness Doctrine are Rush Limbaugh, George Will and the Republican Study Committee. It better be good for ratings and direct-mail donations, because the idea that the doctrine is a priority for anyone with any power to bring it back is completely delusional. This new bill is a political stunt, pure and simple. But when the bill fails, as it surely will, all the same shouting .s will be all over Fox News and the AM dial claiming they're about to be gagged and that communism is on the march.

Why don't you post FACTS, instead of complete lies?
According to CBS news, which is about as left-wing as you can get, ONLY 54% of Tea Party supporters are Republicans:

www.cbsnews.com...


More than half (54 percent) identify as Republicans, and another 41 percent say they are independents. Just five percent call themselves Democrats, compared to 31 percent of adults nationwide.


Of course, then again, why tell the truth? After all, that would not support your contentions about the tea party members.

As to primary reasons for being TP members, CBS news reports these poll results:



Asked what they are most angry about, the top four answers among Tea Party supporters who identify as angry were the health care reform bill (16 percent), the government not representing the people (14 percent), government spending (11 percent) and unemployment and the economy (8 percent).


If you are going to make wild accusations, and you have, then stick to the facts, and cite sources, other than your own rather wild imagination.

It come down to this, the 2 party system in the US sucks donkey balls...and a system with 3-5 parties who have to build coalitions would work a lot better. That way, you have the option to chose "gray" instead of "black" or "white" like now.

So technically, I welcome the formation of a 3rd group like the tea party guys. Having said that, every time Palin talks to them, the crowd cheers...and since Palin is utterly retarded and a lying scumbag (ask for proof and I'll provide), people cheering her on, must be equally as retarded and stupid.

I really wish the TP was a true 3rd party movement. Sadly it's been taken over by angry bigots, racists, and Christian fundamentalists who would love to live in a theocracy (and make the rest of us live in one too). They get a B for effort, after all, they do have quite a few members and guns...but an F- for content.

If they'd stuck with the core values of being against the bailouts, all would be good. I was against those too, but for other reasons then them. I realize that not bailing out those companies would have resulted in a short/medium-term shock to employment beyond anything we've experienced so far...and the TP dudes who were against the bailouts probably didn't think about that, but economically, it would have been the better choice in the long term. So I agree with them there.

But then they showed up with Obama/Hitler billboards, called everyone who wanted regulation (even though more regulation in the banking sector would have saved us from this crisis) a communist, and started with racial slurs. And the best thing is, if you accuse them of being racist, they argue that you are using the "race card".

Guess what, IF YOU'RE BEING RACIST I'M GONNA USE THE RACE CARD! Saying someone is using the "race card" isn't a valid excuse for being racist.
