You make a good point, chuckmo.
No it really does...I have been a member since '06, you have been one since '04, and Moby since '06. Remember, we would actually have discussions about topics without calling names or calling in question a person's sexual orientation. With the additions of Lois Lane, Happy Jack, Marine, all in '08, and their sock puppets, any differences of opinion immediately degrades into name-calling, race-baiting, and the such. Believe it or not we used to have a two way discussion on the issues (along with Moby). This board has turned into a platform for vitriol. The only way to have a two way discussion now is that all parties must totally agree with every point that is made. OK...I am now throwing my soap box away.
When I first started posting here, I was attacked personally by the likes of artie, edge, and sparks, among others, based on nothing but the opinions I posted. Since you tend to hold opinions similar to theirs, and seem to share a similar ideology, I lumped you in with them. I realize now that that was unfair since, to the best of my recollection, you have not insulted me personally, as they have. Due to the polarizing nature of today's political climate, I may in the future disparage and ridicule your opinions and your choice of candidates, but I will refrain from any personal insults. Please accept my sincere apology.
I don't in any way sense that this guy is the purely rotten, reprehensible human being that the gayguy, the creep, & the fat guy lay claim to. I mean, those are just bad, bad people. Way beyond politics and philosophy, it never took any type of ultra-keen perception to realize that these are mean, mean-spirited, & unhappy men. The gayguy doesn't appear have a decent bone in his body....nor does the fat guy...nor did the creep.
While I don't sense that evil in this guy, he does disparage conservatives and Republicans on a regular basis....and he does it based on generalities and prejudices that he has about those folks, as if he knows them all. Says that we engage in "vitriol". Odd that he never once complained about the left wing vitriol from the gayguy, the creep, & the fat guy. He NEVER once complained about all the "vitriol" from his side. Then, on top if it, he has the nerve to whine "DON'T LABEL ME". For that, he deserves our wrath.
And...he is stupid. And...he does post in blue.
Sorry jack....."slo-mo" sticks.
