reply to post by OutKast Searcher
Dear "Outkast Searcher,"
WHO ARE YOU? What did you do with real Outkast Searcher? How much do you want for his safe return? The Outkast Searcher I remember wasn't so big
on personal attacks and ad hominems
, he was, more or less, accurate and reasonable. So, who are you?
Just two months ago you were all over a Birther thread wondering why Obama hasn't addressed the issue
You looked through two months of
my threads to find a post? Wow, I didn't know I was important enough to do that kind of research on. I don't have any influence. My avatar says
"just a guy." I'm not a writer, fighter, or scholar, even my signature says "I'm not the sharpest bulb in the drawer." I don't have a gold
border around my posts as you do, I haven't even been here two years. I'm just another poster.
So you did your research and found I was "all over" a Birther thread. I made one post. That's "all over?" Remember? That was when the
publisher's biographical booklet came out stating that Obama was born in Kenya. It ran for several years without correction. Nobody had discussed
it before, and I said:
It seems clear, with the bio pamphlet and other evidence, that Obama claimed to be born in Kenya. I think people see
that as settled. The question remaining is "Was he telling the truth, or making up a story to look more exotic and interesting." Neither is a
comfortable position to maintain, but there's no risk of jail if he was just fluffing up his resume.
I'm also surprised that you say:
You are becoming quite transparent playing your "I'm just an innocent asking questions that I don't know
the answers to"...it is clear you have an agenda and what your tactic is.
If I'm pretending to be innocent, then you must be accusing me of
being guilty of something? What? I have opinions, and I think Romney would be a better President than Obama. I apologize and correct my thinking
when I'm wrong, I'm polite, provide links. Of what am I guilty? Of course, I'm transparent, I always have been. As far as "agenda" and
"tactic," I truly don't know what you mean. I write like this in just about every post in every topic. (Ooops, I forgot. I lost it in a rant
thread of mine that was a passionate defense of art and culture against disruptive protesters (a masterpiece, if I may be so immodest), and in a
thread about the abortion doctor who was for killing "ugly, black babies.) Other than that, I'm really pretty simple.
Now the difference with the taxes, is that Romney has a pile of paper he doesn't want to hand over. It doesn't change, it's the same pile of
paper. There are no new charges or requests. It's just "Give me those papers." "No, I won't," over and over again. At least with the birther
issue there are new documents, new allegations. Each of those can be discussed, reasonably, I think, because they are
how you guys want transparency until it is something damaging to the guy you support (and yes, you support Romney)...and then it's all "Let's just
Wouldn't a birther respond, "Obama hasn't given us any transparency, why should we bend over if he won't? Besides,
taxes aren't a requirement for the office, citizenship is."
Further, if we're just going back and forth, doing the same thing over and over, when does it stop? Does this drown out all conversation on other
issues? As Jean Paul noted, shouldn't we be discussing rights and liberties?
