This is my 198th thread here. Have I made a smidgin of relevance to you or our readers?

I have pretty much had it.

The endisnighe and I have gleaned the reasoning behind this and all other blog type info centers. To DISHEARTEN the unwary.

I am not disheartened. I am free and I am released. I have TWO more threads to reach my GOAL.

I have come here to learn and to impart my viewpoint. I think I have done both admirably, somewhat.

Insanity is defined by Einstein as an action that continually is used even though a different outcome is not broached. Does that mean we are all insane? Or just persistent?

LOL, our avatars and choices or positions are just an existential existence of our lives. Are they reality? Or are they just a figment of our own existentialism?

I am me.

You are you.

I will be free!

Endisnighe, you have made a dent with me. I respect your opinions and think that when you post, you do so from the heart. I don't believe we will ever agree on everything, but I respect you and like to have your input in threads. You have provoked me into deeper thought a number of times, and for that I thank you. If you ever come to WA, I'll buy the first round.

I just think you seem to be exhibiting impotent, unfocused anger.

I'd recommend a program on MSNBC that's been advertised today...will air on 16th June. Hosted by Chris Matthews.

I'm sure it will be up, and available within a few hours after airing on Basic Cable, via YouTube or Google...or on the MSNBC website.

The topic isthe "Right Wing Nuttiness" inAmerica, today (I'm paraphrasing).

It is certain to make your head explode, I imagine....on the otherhand, I will be watching gleefully....and
at the Tea Partiers, Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity, etc...all great (and hilarious) punching bags du jour...

(On a more serious note....the "rise" of these right-wingnuts is actually a bit disturbing....guess they're not isolated to Idaho, anymore.....)

The RISE of the rightwing nutbags are directly related to an overbearing government.

It is DIRECTLY proportional. If you know anything about mathematics, you will know that an overbearing government brings out the SUPPOSED rightwing nutjobs.

NOW, what is funny, right wingers are ALL about LESS government.

Kind of funny how that works?

Oh, by the way THANKS RAUSTIN. I have tried to impart my ideals and ideas while here. 198 down, two to go.

OH, I want to reiterate to the weedwhacker, when you have OVERBEARING ASININE IMBECILIC FREAKIZOIDS in control, what the HELL do you expect people to do? OH, we are supposed to be good Americans and KISS our progenitors? Frell you and the tyrant GEORGE BUSH you rode in on.

I know he is your savior and Obama is now your GOD.

You say things much nicer then I do.
I think I might have some anger issues. You keep a level head and get your point across. And I agree with most things you write. Thumbs up.

Hey, subjective, glad to see you back.

Just keep those emotions in check and you will do fine.

Mine get me all the time, especially while drinking. I let it all hang out. I have taken it EZ over the past couple weeks. Thinking of my final conspiracy. It will be the final. I came here to learn and to teach. Both have been given and partook.

You taught me in your own right, to keep the anger and emotion contained while in a public audience. BUT, once and awhile you have to let the beast lose. Once and awhile you have to let the TRUE self escape.......even if it is a insane, emotional, wreck of a man.

Keep up the spirits, there are true men amongst you.

Thanks buddy it is nice to be back check out my public profile.




I agree I don't care what the mods or ATS management think anymore I will keep typing until they kick me off. The truth tends to piss people off when they don't see it the same way you do .



I do wish I could have my avatar back. That one pissed me the F*ck off.

Yes, I have been told by my family and my beloved to calm down. Funny how that just does not gain root. Youngest of five brothers, must be a symptom!

You've helped me realize the real enemy. I just wish I could debate more of you in public.

Thank you?

It's a rare day I find myself agreeing with Weedwacker but I do think he has a point. WE"RE ALL ANGRY DUDE!!!


I'm 50 years old and have been trying to push alternative ideas for over 30 years and I AM TIRED. But I can't just give up. There's too much riding on the future of what happens in this country.

If just one of your posts changes someones mind and gets them to be proactive then it's all worth it. You will have moved the mountain. I think you've done it many times.

You have challenged me to think deeper and brought information to the table I wouldn't have gotten otherwise. Likewise I have appreciated your input on threads of mine.

We all have times where we feel like there is no hope and that we are wasting our time. That's normal. Perhaps you just need a break but NEVER, EVER GIVE UP. The future of the world is at stake and if you bail then you are just another part of the problem - the apathetic.

Awareness is the first part of the process but once you've reconciled yourself to what reality truly is then the future is in your hands. I trust you with it my friend. My 2 grandkids are counting on YOU. I know you won't let me down.


Thank you EIN for all you have done and all you will do.

Respects, ATA

You've had mixed results on me. More of a so-so.

You have made me understand the small government libertarian mindset when before I just considered you all greedy and evil. I understand and respect your positions now, so you have changed my mind.

I am still the same old left-wing Socialist I have always been, but you convinced me to educate myself about the founding fathers and the constitution. I can now say I read the constitution and understand the viewpoints of the founding fathers... and can now tell you their names.


So while you have not changed my political views very much, you have changed my views about the proponents of small government.

All I can say is just chill out a little, you are a very strung out guy. Just turn on a dull minded cartoon or something and just watch at least for one day and let your worries drift away.

Dude I like your work...I marked you as acceptable some time ago...hee-hee.

Remember, the job of the writer is to turn his readers into his characters...and I don't think everyone on here is an infectious sac of your virus quite yet.

Why stop now ...(unless you're busy)...

You and I have clashed in several threads in the past, Endisnighe.

With that, I have great respect for you and in the end, you and I have more similarities in belief than differences. We certainly have our differences, but those differences occur on the same path.

We may have different stances on social issues and ideas, but we both believe the same fundamental ideas. We're both libertarians; you just move towards being conservative whereas I move towards being liberal in regards to social issues.

It's a paradigm we should quite frankly accept and love. We may not be the same, but we're allies in the end.

The following is my opinion as a member participating in this discussion.



I think you and I have been trying to make the same dent. I remember when Bush was in office I was a left wing terrorist, under this admin I'm a right wing nutjob, I have not changed, the country has.

The Constitution and our history are the two most important things to me as they hold the keys to our future success as a nation. While your approach is a bit more roughneck than mine, I think the our goal is the same, to frame the argument around the Constitution and the wisdom of history.

Have I made a dent? Doubt it. But maybe someone, somewhere is paying attention, and I like to think I've reached at least one person, hopefully, so have you.

As an ATS Staff Member, I will not moderate in threads such as this where I have participated as a member.

Now I feel bad...

But there are marks, and marks, you know what I'm saying?

And you too, o weedwhacker, are remarkable as well.

You've kept me on my toes for sure mate! I don't agree with you on a lot but we do both support the citizens getting involved in politics directly and that more of us should run for office. That much I'll always have your back on.

Other than that, you're one of the people I do very much enjoy debating with and you've given me a lot to think about over my time on ATS.

Cheers mate, and don't loose that drive or zeal, regardless of what anyone says.
