"You'd just ban submissions from "unpopular" people. I see! Completely different!"

DIPS.HIT it isn't a conspiracy. People don't automatically vote YOU down. They vote your CONTENT down.

"White Lion Cub Born At Serbian Zoo" posted by you has a 3.6. Now if there was a left wing conspiracy to down vote everything you post because we hate you so much....

"they feel NO SHAME in hitting the "1" button without even looking at the subject material.
I've seen it time and time again."

HOW THE F.UCK COULD YOU POSSIBLY PRETEND YOU KNOW THAT? HOW? How does that even come out of you? You KNOW whether or not people are reading your content before they vote? HOW?

(To clarify, you were saying things like "King Obama". That was all you, not your Obama impression speaking).

"Umm did you miss the part where Obama did the name calling or do you not want to see it."

Just because he called people names, doesn't mean that you get to young man! Two wrongs don't make a right. Now go to your room!

PS, for the record, I personally have never rated any post ever. Not a single one, since 2007.

So do I get an exemption from your claim that liberals hit 1 without thinking?

It's because you're in your thirties and you say things like this that we don't take you seriously.

Come on, man, you sound like a 13 year old when you talk like that.



Umm did you miss the part where Obama did the name calling or do you not want to see it.

You do know the debt is really just a boogie man issue to scare people right? What is going to happen? The country is going to get repoed?


So following that logic we should pave the street with gold and spend away because there'd be no repercussions? The closing loopholes in the tax system thing though ya that's a good start.

@Musuko42: lolz! Good point! I got my PHD in Economic Theory, it's around here somewhere... (not really).

It's just that some "experts" say one thing, and others say... the opposite! So I DO agree with "the experts"... just not the same ones as the liberals.

When the messenger (@HolyGod in this case) spouts NONSENSE like that <*estimated> deficit list? It's time to "lock and load"... verbally of course! I'm a Canadian, not allowed to own guns...

And a real PHD person, @AntEconomist? He's agreed with me several times Brightens my day!

5Cats partisan bubble reality:

"Obama's plan? SPEND MORE"

Actual reality:

"Non-security discretionary spending -- subject to the caps laid out in the Budget Control Act -- would be hard hit. Currently $450 billion, it would fall to $410 billion in 2013 and $385 billion by 2015."

"This year, the administration details 210 places where programs will be cut or eliminated, for savings of $24 billion in 2013 and $520 billion over a decade."

"The White House notes that when coupled with less spending on overseas wars, the reductions "would bring discretionary spending to its lowest level as a share of the economy since Dwight D. Eisenhower sat in the Oval Office.


THIS IS WHY WE CAN'T HAVE NICE THINGS!

We can't debate the administration's actual plans, we have to debate your incorrect distortions of reality.

You're saying that most of the people here are liberals.

You're saying that liberals don't like your posts.

You're saying that most of the people here don't like your posts.

So you shouldn't be saying that people here like your posts.

"AGAIN: There's lots MORE liberals here, and they feel NO SHAME in hitting the "1" button without even looking at the subject material."

If that's true, then that's another reason to reduce the number of your posts: you're not giving the audience what they want.

We come here to be entertained. To stave off boredom. If you're supplying the wrong kind of entertainment for the kind of people who come here, then you're doing it wrong.

...system set up where people's submissions aren't accepted if the community doesn't like the submissions.


But that's <not> banning submissions? You'd just ban submissions from "unpopular" people. I see! Completely different!

There aren't many of them obviously or your posts would get above a 2 rating.


AGAIN: There's lots MORE liberals here, and they feel NO SHAME in hitting the "1" button without even looking at the subject material.

Did you read my comment on here where I SPECIFICALLY blamed it on the MODS more than you?

So your solution is for them to BAN my submissions. Nice! Liberal!
I say: no!

@5Cats

Could we not debate economics like we somehow know better than those who actually run it?

I don't know about you, but I struggle to do anything more than add up my bills. And I imagine you're not going to be a great deal better, if your interest in the economy isn't professional.

Is it a general distrust you have of experts that stops you from deferring to the judgement of those better qualified than you? Or is it a "shoot the messenger" thing, where you don't like what they're saying so you declare them wrong? Or is it an ego thing where you think that you know better than them, regardless of how much more they likely know about the subject than you do?

Surely you can see it's not a shameful thing to say that you don't know as much about the economy as those who spend their professional lives dealing in it?

"Except for the that every year, more and more idealistic young liberals get bitch-slapped by reality and realize that they've bought into the Big Lie. Thus we have a new generation of conservatives and libertarians.

It's worked that way for the past 50 years, and it's not going to change."

It IS changing because of people who are anti-government, anti-intellect, religious nuts like the tea party infesting the republican party.

There ARE intelligent / reasonable republicans with good ideas but they get drowned out by fringe crazies like bachman and santorum. THOSE people are the face of the party now.

I liked McCain and Romney before they sprinted over to the far right to get the nomination. The democrat candidates now are closer to the center than the republican candidates because the republican candidates have to go soooo far right to keep from getting primaried by the extremists. Do you not agree?

How can you think it's impossible?

@Musuko42: He and I have lengthily debated the whole "debt & deficit" situation before. He lost, but remains utterly unrepentant.

I've read that those "cheerful numbers" are based on smoke, mirrors, and a surging economy. That last one ain't happening.
It's literally impossible without HUGE reductions in spending, and Obama's plan? SPEND MORE!

Raise taxes? That won't generate nearly enough to TOUCH the deficit. And historically? It has sometimes lead to REDUCED tax revenue! So the US could hike the tax rate and LOSE money! In theory.

WHO are they going to tax more? The top 10% ALREADY pay the lion's share. Tax them higher and they'll take their money & run. Why wouldn't they?

"Heck no! You just want to forbid my offering suggestions!"

Never said that once either. Not once. Please argue against other things I have never said.

The closest I said was that there should be a system set up where people's submissions aren't accepted if the community doesn't like the submissions. Isn't that the way most media / entertainment works? People enjoy stuff or it goes away?

"Blaming ME for the actions of OTHERS? (@FancyLad and @The_Mods)?? Also VERY liberal of you."

Did you read my comment on here where I SPECIFICALLY blamed it on the MODS more than you?

"He submits it, but THEY post it. I've said it before, but IAB LOVES 5Cats."

So not only do you argue against positions I have never taken, you also get mad at me for not taking positions I have specifically taken? AWESOME.

@HolyGod Every obituary shrinks the republican party.

Except for the that every year, more and more idealistic young liberals get bitch-slapped by reality and realize that they've bought into the Big Lie. Thus we have a new generation of conservatives and libertarians.

"You're serious? You cannot be serious... THERE'S NO BUDGET! How can you "estimate" expenses in 2-3 years?"

YOU'RE SERIOUS? It is what the stock market and speculation economy is based on, companies projecting earnings / budgets and people betting whether they will be higher or lower.

Nope. Never said it once. Never once said I want you banned.

Heck no! You just want to forbid my offering suggestions! Euphemism, go look it up...

Blaming ME for the actions of OTHERS? (@FancyLad and @The_Mods)?? Also VERY liberal of you.

Your ongoing fixation in CONTROLING MY ACTIONS is repulsive, dude. Find a new hobby.

@Musuko42: See? I'm not a "one trick pony" at all!
And I do "lump them all together" since they're following Alinsky Tactics. I don't see @HolyGod complaining about the screaming trolls personally attacking me. HECK! He ENCOURAGES it! He does the SAME HIMSELF! Why should I not lump them all together?

I used to be polite on the internet, a looooong time ago! It got me nowhere, honestly. The slobbering trolls were NEVER happy, and that remains the case to this day.

Just LOOK at this thread! You cannot "appease" them! Never.

"@HolyGod: Shall I list the people who like & support me?"

There aren't many of them obviously or your posts would get above a 2 rating.

You really don't think it is too much for ONE person to post ONCE A DAY about the SAME SIDE of the SAME ISSUE?

Do you honestly think that is interesting? I don't submit a post unless I think it will be interesting and entertaining to the IAB members.

You seem to post things simply to vent or propagandize or something. You can't think the members enjoy the same s.hit once a day, especially if you pay attention to the ratings they get.

Don't you WANT to post things people like? Isn't that the point of this site? You're adding NOTHING because all you are doing is posting stuff I can find on drudge or breitbart. I know where those sites are if I want that content.

I always thought the point of this site was to showcase things people wouldn't have otherwise seen.

Lots of maths.

How can you think it's impossible? You do it with your own personal expenses. Scale that up a lot and involve a lot of clever people and there you go. It won't be spot on accurate, but that's why it's an estimate rather than a prediction.

The only NON-TROLLS on your list are @WhoDat and @Squrlz4. Why should I give a flying drat about troll-opinions?

* estimates

You're serious? You cannot be serious... THERE'S NO BUDGET! How can you "estimate" expenses in 2-3 years?

Don't you remember the "political map"? It clearly showed a LOT of IABers on "the left" OK? How you can even TRY to deny this fact is... liberal of you.

Is your list of deficits fiscal year (Oct to Oct) or calendar year (Jan 20 to Jan 20)? Either way? Obama ADDED 300 Billion to Bush's last budget, something you repeatedly FAIL to admit.

YES! Bush spent too much! It was bad!
Obama spends EVEN MORE! Get it?

I'm sure you have! And I know there have been times when we've actually been on the same "side" in debates on here. It's shocking when it happens.

And it's just a shame you have to ruin it by saying things like "libtards".

Honestly, you'd get more respect for your opinion without saying things like that. I'd still disagree with you vehemently. But at least I'd be able to respect that your opinion is coming from thought rather than vitriol.

"Nope. Never said it once. Never once said I want you banned. Never came out of my mouth. But PLEASE invent a position I have never taken and then argue against that. It is your modus aperandi."

He's doing what often happens; he's not arguing against individuals. He's seeing everyone who's arguing against him as one great gestalt entity. Someone mentioned a ban, and he's lumped that into the enemy blob that includes me and you and all the others.

You didn't say ban, but someone else did (it was normalfreak2, for the record). But 5Cats sees as all as one unified borg. Not as, you know...people.

I only wish we were that organised.

@Mr.Orange & @Squrlz4: If you don't LIKE political content? Don't read it! Mind-blowing, I know, but it can be done...

Oh! But that requires personal responsibility! It's FAR EASIER to BAN than to actually make an effort yourself. You want to BAN my posts? Start your own website and do so!

@Bakcagain21: I like hard boiled eggs especially!
Hey! I've lost an argument or two with you, right? And openly admitted it too!

@Musuk042: I complained when Bush did dumb things too! It was generally lost amid the screaming of the LibTards, but I did!

And the Repubs are following 'the law' as well, correct? What's your point?
