I guess you didn't bother reading the link you are talking about, if you did you would of noticed that I said
I am as guilty as anyone else and have been a "part of the problem" more than I would care to admit.
So I am not exactly preaching to anybody, rather I see the problem that exist and am hoping to tone down the insults that get thrown around. Like I
said though, I am as guilty as anybody else. Before you write an entire post about a thread I wrote, it might serve you well to actually read it.
But your right, something that I could of said that better represents my thoughts would of been "a conservative over the OP any day of the week". I
admit, the divisive crap that the OP posted hit a nerve because I am so tired of the BS and insults. Went ahead and put one back at them.
Two wrongs don't make a right but to be honest with you sometimes I just don't care. I am certainly not pretending to be an angel over here. When
somebody hits me, I hit them back. My thread that you didn't read but made the focus of your post was more about not taking the first shot, it was
not about ignoring people when they create an entire thread for no other reason than to insult a group of people.
The fact that you are condemning me and not the OP I think says a lot about you.
just like you assuming everyone with "liberal" views is an idiot.
Now you are just putting words into my mouth. Even with my admittedly regrettable statement one can't draw the conclusion that I think liberals are
idiots. I never said they would score low on an IQ test, simply lower than a conservative. Anyhow it is a moot point as honestly my statement was
directed at the OP and not all liberals though I also admit, with that nerve being struck i went ahead and said what I said. That is regrettable.
P.S. google "liberalism" read the wiki on it, then reflect on your conservative views. You, my friend, outside of the US of A are a liberal. Only in
the US is it a slur, republicans stand more towards liberalism than the democrats do.
So now you are assuming that I don't know something. Should I assume that you think I am an idiot?
Yes, thank you for the suggestion. Unfortunately I already know this. Actually I sometimes will refer to myself as a liberal when I want to bring
attention to the fact that people that hold views such as mine were the original liberals in the USA. Despite your snap judgement of me, I am
actually well read enough to know that the terms liberal or conservative are constantly changing throughout history as time progresses.
Conservative politics tends to dip towards low effort thinking. Don't take my word for it, put on ANY conservative radio host, tv host, news caster,
and just listen to them for a few minutes.
That actually sounds a lot more like an opinion than any sort of provable fact... don't you think? Who makes the judgement as to what is low effort
thinking and if a statement made by somebody was the result of low effort thinking?
Saying that Conservatives have their views as a result of low effort thinking is simply another way of saying Conservatives are idiots that don't
think about the views that they hold. Is what you said somehow not as bad as what I said? Go ahead and pat yourself on the back for being such a
deep thinker. My guess is you are talking about people such as Rush Limbaugh. Well for every Limbaugh who I would say hardly represents me or
conservatives I associate with their is a Tom Woods a person who you would have a hard time making the argument that he employs any amount of low
Can you really not see how what you said is a direct insult? How about the post made by the OP? So I retaliated against my better judgement... I
can't believe I had the audacity to stand up for myself after being insulted. Give me a break... what a load of BS.
My thread was about trying to understand each other not turn the other cheek when somebody insults you. Two different matters there entirely.
But hey, you'd have to analyze the facts, and that requires "effort thinking" you game bro?
There you go with the insults again, proving once again how much better you are than me. Your response is such a good example of effort thinking huh?
You want to bother having the slightest clue who I am, what I think and what I have read before you assume things about me? Is that not part of
effort thinking? Well, you game bro?
