Steve, this is becoming really dry, boring and repetitive. Your focus on people, instead of issues, that is. Your ad hominem.
Ever since you returned to the thread on page 12, I have not heard from you a single argument in favor or against an issue, but rather a patronizing litany of psycho-analyses, belittling, thinly veiled or outright insults, etc., of other people on this thread. Your use of textbook logical fallacies and dirty debate tactics is simply boring for me.
I will be happy to continue sparing with you on issues, but will refrain from enabling and indulging your shoot-the-messanger tactics.
Well gee Slobodan. All I've heard on the issues since I've returned has been remarkably ignorant remarks that should embarrass the originators to the core. If you think trying to get people to think and analyze their thought patterns and what comes out of their keyboard as "dry"
, then guilty as charged.
Frankly, I refuse to stoop to the level I've heard here on the last few pages (concerning the issues)
so I'll stay with my current tact if you don't mind. Up the decorum and show you have real original thoughts, AND support them, and I'll join in on the issues. Until then it's much more fun to analyze the source of such ignorance and hatred.
Outright insults? I could never insult someone enough as they do themselves when they come out with a statement such as this:"The party!? What party? You call a collection of loonies a party? A bunch of closet racists, white supremacists, KKKs, and just plain backward weirdos and wackos, who woke up one day in shock to find their country has a black, "foreign-born", "marxists/fascist" president, with a "deep-seated hatred for white people"? Who realized it is much more politically correct and mass-appealing to portray their rabid anger as "against big government", than to get out of their closets and show their true face (though they are, luckily, not very successful in hiding it). They were nowhere to be heard when gazillions of dollars went for wars of choice and nation building abroad, but start foaming at the mouth when some of that money goes to provide health care for underprivileged in their own country?"
I gave you a chance to redeem yourself.. to reconsider such blatant ignorance and approach the discussion from a more mature perspective.. In fact I practically begged for it. But somehow you consider the words of yours I quoted as "reasonable discussion."
I disagree. I'd hang my head in shame if I penned that missive. Now, if you consider that insulting.. then consider the source. You.
