@cracrjack
the only nerve you hit was my funny bone. i look at your opinions as exactly that as well, a joke. not to mention a dangerous continuation of the status quo. so i come back with equal ridiculousness. the difference is i don't have serious, let alone, civil discussions on a website called "i am bored." when i want legitimate debates i choose to enter the real world and discuss things that might actually make a difference, rather than pretending i'm important by regurgitating rhetoric i saw on fox news on a .com website. which is why i am responding to a post a week later... because i don't fill my time with f*uckwads like you. you are cancer.

Cajun: It's an insult, but not vulgar, and it wasn't aimed at you, so get over it.

Wait what bat5h17 crazy isn't a vulgar insult?

That's news.

No, now you're just arguing (ad populum) semantics.

Cajun: 'batsh|t crazy' is vulgar, really ?

Try as I might, couldn't find either of those two words on list of vulgarities on the internet.

Perhaps part of the first word, 'sh|t', might be considered offensive if used alone or combined with words like head, face, for brains, etc... but batsh|t itself is not vulgar.

Cajun: so you took it personally even though it wasn't aimed at you. Are you a relative of his or something ? If not then you shouldn't act offended,

Lillian: There's a difference between taking campaign donations and being bought.


Everyone can be 'bought', one way or another.

I'd like to think that wasn't the case, but the pressure that can be brought to bear and the temptation of greed is too much to expect any human being to resist.

I'd argue that our media isn't liberal for the most part, they're controlled by money too.


Surveys of journalists' self-reported voting habits show them backing the Democratic candidate in every presidential election since 1964, including landslide losers George McGovern, Walter Mondale and Michael Dukakis. In 2004, a poll conducted by the University of Connecticut found journalists backed John Kerry over George W. Bush by a greater than two-to-one margin.

I believe Cajun lowered the conversation first, with "You wouldn't know bat5h17 crazy if it formed a lynch mob outside of your house or if it was broadcast on national TV."


You call Paul a bat5h17 crazy politician, I respond.

"Obama's job rating and polling numbers show that he looses the race to 'a republican candidate' "
I've seen polls saying he'd beat out a Republican, so... As for that chart, I "slightly disapprove" of the job Obama's done but I'd still vote for him over the other candidates.

"Every candidate in this election has taken campaign donations from corporations."
There's a difference between taking campaign donations and being bought. It just so happens that usually the campaign donations end up influencing the opinions of the candidate. I don't believe that's true for Ron Paul (at least, not to the extent of every other candidate).

"Your opinion, on the first part, and the supposed 'skeletons', dug up and bought by the liberal media"
I'd argue that our media isn't liberal for the most part, they're controlled by money too. If someone has skeletons, expect them to jump on the opportunity to expose them.

@Crakr: Some polls have Obama behind, others have him tied, others have him slightly ahead. A 3500 sample size is definitely the best, but it might not be quite as cut-and-dry as you claim. Link.

@ CrakrJak - the problem with any indicators that Obama will 'lose to a republican' is that it assumes a viable republican candidate. I dont' see one. I'd like to see one. If you have one put him out there! But to date, I don't think any of the candidates are strong contenders.

But it's 10 months away...lots can happen between now and November.

Dr. Ron Paul the one Congressman the media is afraid to talk about. What if they only did?

Lillian: Answer #1 Obama's job rating and polling numbers show that he looses the race to 'a republican candidate'

Link

"he's the only candidate (including Obama) who isn't bought by corporations."
Every candidate in this election has taken campaign donations from corporations.

"All the current Republican candidates have insane ideas and a lot of skeletons in the closet."
Your opinion, on the first part, and the supposed 'skeletons', dug up and bought by the liberal medi

CrackrJak: What real world examples ?

Read my first post again. Repealing drug prohibition did wonders for Portugal and The Netherlands. These are facts. People didn't go wild and do drugs just because they were legalized. In fact, use went down.

"Really made me believe the rest of the conversation was hopeless, and I expressed my frustration in a manner that had already been aimed at me."

So, I have a different opinion than you. But you refuse to answer my questions (which, btw, if you could explain your opinions like I asked, you might have been able to change my opinion for all you know, but instead you quit the discussion through insults) and instead insult me because I have a different opinion than you. I didn't aim anything like that at you, it was really uncalled for for you to do that to me instead of continuing the debate. So, even if 1 person is uncivil to you, that doesn't mean you get a free pass to be uncivil to everyone else just because you're "frustrated". I'd still like my questions answered, I feel they're legitimate. o_O

Lillian: I believe Cajun lowered the conversation first, with "You wouldn't know bat5h17 crazy if it formed a lynch mob outside of your house or if it was broadcast on national TV."

and then your response to my quote of, "He wants all prisoners convicted on drug charges to be freed nationwide."

Lillian, "Sounds good to me."

Really made me believe the rest of the conversation was hopeless, and I expressed my frustration in a manner that had already been aimed at me.

I've never tossed insults toward you that I can remember, and I apologize if I ever did, but at least in this post, Cajun, LazyMe, and myself were only speaking civily with you and yet we got those kinds of responses... (though I know at least cajun insulted you, but only after you made those comments xD)

CrakrJak:
Maybe we have different opinions of what the word "civil" means?

Refusing to answer questions and saying it's because:
"Some people don't get it and never will, Cajun, Lillian, LAzyMe, and others are just a few.

Too cemented to their liberal ideologies to see anything past the nose on their face. "

and

"I've answered those questions before and it doesn't make a difference, tired of debating people with skulls as thick brick walls."

Doesn't really sound civil to me (especially the 2nd quote). Yeah they aren't as bad as telling someone to kill themselves, but they aren't conductive to proving your point, and they aren't conductive to promoting a discussion, and they definitely don't encourage people to want to debate with you in the future.

Thankfully, his chance at the republican nomination is nearing an end.


Cuz apparently people don't really care about the size of their government. Shame really

Lillian: I do tolerate people and keep things civil, unless incivility is aimed at me, but even then there's a line I won't cross and suggesting someone commit suicide is way beyond the line.
