You're again acting like a nut.
Again...as I said to someone else here. I don't do personal attack and I don't do name calling. Either giving or being given. I don't respect those
who do and I generally consider a debate over and won...or lost..depending on what side you're standing on...as soon as name calling and personal
attacks enter into it. Now I'd hate to see you watch me walk away from you and mutter anything more about how I can't know what I'm talking about.
On this, there is no debate. Let's look, shall we?
This from your OP, describing the only categories of people you consider to be on the side of asking questions here:
1. Political opponents
2. Foreign operatives
3. Crazy people
4. Business interests
5. Some combination of the above and I guess, though I doubt it, I should add
6. Hardcore racists
Well now..that almost sounds like Bush and Cheney with their "With us or against us" nonsense. We aren't permitted to question anything anymore?
Interesting..oh but you get far more vicious with the attacks. A sampling:
So basically Obama not only wasn't REALLY the defendant, but no one, and I mean no one with any sense, thought a sitting President was gonna go
represent himself on behalf of the party. That's crazy talk.
[I'll leave that as the sole 'Crazy' example...and that was to me in a reply. The ways you call those who disagree crazy is amusing by it's
variety, I will grant that.]
Right, so you tell me then, why are the birthers lying so much?
Why would you trust a bunch of liars?
No mistakes, but lies.
[Those lines, all from one reply to someone else on this thread]
You need to learn to separate fiction from reality
Show me or stop making silly claims.
I mean, when you see things like that photoshopped Columbia ID, it means people are NOT loking for truth, but generating lies... why...?
Right, so you side with the people generating the lies then. That's down to your intellectual capacity I guess.
I think it's funny that birthers completely ignore all questions about the evidence they believe. I guess it's all just faith on their part.
I guess crazy is really he only explanation for her... [a comment about the Plantiff's Lawyer]
You're again acting like a nut.
(Areas in bold and in brackets are my comments]
Now there was more and some was to me...some wasn't. I'm not commenting every insult you've thrown or who it was specifically thrown AT because
that detracts from my point here. People are not always going to agree....and in this case, the disagreement is so epic, it's risen to the level of
cultural issue and has been the center of a number of COURT, not tabloid, matters. The point here is though.....the fact people disagree with you
doesn't make them crazy, ignorant, stupid or just plain malicious in intent. They aren't liars and they aren't fools. They just disagree. I believe
you HAVE lost all credibility because you couldn't keep this at a professional level...and just had to devolve into personal attack.
You'll note...there are more than just you here that disagree with me..and no surprise. It's ATS.
However, I backed off with one, because I'm
just not in the mood to fight today..even friendly. Nothing personal and I hope he didn't take it that way. On another thread, we may agree on
something else. A couple others, I've said nothing to. They make points I think are misguided, but such is life..and again, we don't always agree.
What makes this special is that not everyone becomes downright hateful and vicious to fellow members. When they day is over, we're all still here
together....and MOST OF US aren't looking to take disagreement in debate and carry it into direct hard feelings far beyond the thread. You, as I see
it, have done exactly that.
Anyway... Take care there...and I'm off the thread entirely. Enough is Enough and if we can't have a conversation or debate, I won't be here for
the grudge match and insult competition. It just isn't my way...and it's low class in general. Good luck though and have a good day.
