You can't make your points so you start in with the insults...
Shows more about you then whatever it is you think of me.
To your first statement, wow just wow.
Your stating that knowing ones limits makes them an idiot?
That is the most absurd statement I have heard in a long time.
Perhaps my wording of "I know exactly how smart I am." should have been phrased better.
Do I know the complete upper bounds of my intelligence, not 100%.
I sure can ball park it, especially when I take a look at myself and ask myself what I know and don't know.
Knowing what I know and what I don't know tells me exactly where I stand and where I need to go from here to grow and learn more.
Honestly I fear someone who thinks it's not possible to know their own limits, that tells me they will approach a situation haphazardly and hope for
the best outcome.
Not believing that others can know where they stand you also can't make an accurate assessment of them; let alone the benefits or detriments they
bring to the table.
Just because I know my current limits does not mean I do not push them.
If anything knowing where I stand now allows me to better approach a situation, I can identify an area that I know I am weak at, and either ask for
help or work to improve myself.

Maybe you are not honest then because you just told me you are smart enough to understand that I did explain my problem with your voting strategy. In
fact I explained it more than once and you have yet to actually address that, Einstein.
edit on 22-4-2012 by LErickson because: (no reason
You have not said why you find my voting strategy wrong.
You have said why some fiction you made up on how I vote is wrong.
You made up some hogwash that you think I said and than went from there.
You aren't discussing the way I vote, you are discussing the made up way you invented out of thin air.
I was even polite and said perhaps I wasn't clear enough giving you the benefit of the doubt.
It's clear I was too polite, as you don't even read much less understand my position.
You would much rather make up some fiction then judge me on it, and proceed to insult me as that is easier than actually reading what I said.
You are a very dangerous individual...
You would rather have a fantasy battle with some fake version of me that you have constructed, and claim victory over that version.
You claim a fictional victory instead of taking the time to actually read and understand what I said.
both parties are working to their own ends to benefit themselves their friends and constituents. The the first and second more than the latter.
Both parties are so busy looking out for themselves that they don't work together. The end result is that we get screwed over. When I say in
previous posts something passed by one party, and signed into law by another fails I'm not saying it fails because they work together. I'm saying
it fails because they weren't working together for the benefit of the country.
I should have added that they are not purposely seeking to harm the country, rather it is the side affect of taking care of themselves and those that
keep them in power.
I did not add that because I thought it was self evident; clearly you need that spelled out for you.
So when I vote for the lesser evil I am trying to vote for one that does not care only about their own ends.
Contrast my statements with yours.
voting for the member of a TEAM that has as a goal, my harm, who might do the least harm, but is STILL PART OF THE SAME TEAM THAT JUST WANTS TO HURT
ME. No, I will not choose the least painful option from that set of choices. Are you guys having a hard time following your own rhetoric? I am not
the one trying to say Republicans and Democrats are the same thing, working together, only wanting to hurt us, and I still vote for one or the other.
I am asking that nonsense be explained to me so back it up.
Again I say their goal is not to harm us
, their goal is self interest
I never said they were working together with the mutual goal being our harm.
You are making stuff up and claiming I said it.
There is a difference between what I said, and what you claim I said simple as that.
