Like flyboy said, if it walks like a duck and talks like a duck, assume it is a duck.

Then, when it makes a big MESS like a duck, you KNOW it is a liberal duck!

"You first mistake is continuing to assume that I am a liberal. I am not"
"I cannot help if people wish to mis-characterize me. I can only state the facts, people will see me as the choose."

Facts?
When did you start posting facts?
Like the supposed fact you placed me on ignore?
Yet your posts continually show up in my 15 dollar an hour burger flipper topic.
People have characterized you by the posts you make. So when you lie and make stuff up just to antagonize conservative posters on a daily basis like you have been doing for quite some time now, you got labeled a liberal.
Rightly so.
Unless you can point to where you are lying and antagonizing your fellow liberals, it looks like your "I am not a liberal" claim gets the pants on fire label for the lie that it is.
Why you, and there are others , won't embrace your deserved and well earned ideological monikers is definitely a thing to make you go hmmmmmmmmmmmm...............

You know, I thought conservatives were all about "personal responsibility"; but it seems as I read this thread (as well as some of the other threads) that they look to Blame Obama for everything going wrong in their lives and take no personal responsibility for their own lives at all...

Weaslespit, "What police issues were there with that incident that would relate it to Ferguson?"

Not the police issues.

The dishonest liberals issues.

The dishonest liberals are exactly the same in the Trayvon Martin case and the Ferguson case.

They are identical.

Hence, there is a whole topic devoted to it.

I posted the following in another topic and thought I'd post it here too, because it is something that makes me go hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm:

This topic - well you take a look at Oakland's infamous "killing zone" where it's predominantly black and is about a 2 square mile area, where over 80 murders have taken place in the last 2 years. I can't see this area ever changing. I doubt a Charles Barkley type would ever get it changed, nor would Barkley ever go into this neighborhood.

It's amazing that we never see ptp reggie, or mike or marty talk about or start topics like this. Almost one of those things that make you go - hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm. Yet the cops can do no right oh to quickly jump on the mike browns and the t-ray martins killings.

For sure any kid in this neighborhood, if he/she should act to white or not black enough, they get killed.

It's sad, but like the residents there say - it is what it is, if something ain't right, we take care of it, we kill em.

smh.

I only sound like a liberal to extreme conservatives, simply because I am far left of their position... When one debates against a point from the right, it is assumed they are on the left on all points. Not true.

The economy was certainly strong during the Clinton years, but income inequality is an issue that has silently growing for over 50 years - and accelerated in the 80's.

This is kind of disconcerting to put it mildly.
.
.
>>>“We encounter people who think it is morally acceptable to kill babies after birth on a regular basis at almost every campus we visit,” said Mark Harrington, director of Created Equal. “While this viewpoint is still seen as shocking by most people, it is becoming increasingly popular.”

Campuses where the high school, college students, local activists and staff members of Created Equal have encountered this opinion include Purdue, University of Minnesota, and University of Central Florida. And at Ohio State earlier this year, the group captured a debate on video between one of its members and an older woman on campus who defended infanticide.

“This is the whole problem with devaluing human life at any stage—it will naturally grow to include other groups of humans; in this case, born humans as well as preborn humans,” Harrington said. “[I] talked with one young man at the University of Minnesota who thought it was alright to kill children if they were under the age of 5 years old, as he did not consider them persons until that age.”

Kristina Garza, spokeswoman for Survivors of the Abortion Holocaust, a prolife organization that often sets up anti-abortion displays on campuses along the West Coast, said her group also frequently encounters college students who accept infanticide.

“For those who are firmly for abortion, because they understand it kills a human being, it’s very easy for them to accept killing a human being after birth,” Garza said. “There is this notion that is common on campus, that it’s OK to kill babies because somehow we don’t become human until we are self aware.”

“A common number that is going around is 4 years old,” she adds.<<<

Such thinking in the past has resulted in some bad things. What happens if its pushed a little farther each year or maybe some one wants to use other things than age to determine if a human being is a real person or not. Heck if they are not really people then its ok to enslave them or remove them from the population or whatever. It doesnt matter because they really arent people you know......

Wealth is outpacing income...and that's a scary sign



"More household wealth in America sounds like good news, but it could also mean economic trouble.
The ratio of wealth to income has hit a recent record, according to Credit Suisse.


The last time it was this high was during the Great Depression. And it came close two other times: 1999, the year before the dotcom bubble burst, and leading up to 2007, before the housing market crash.
Wealth has skyrocketed, driven mainly by the soaring stock market, and that has mostly benefited the rich. Income for the average person, meanwhile, hasn't been growing much.
Credit Suisse analysts found that the ratio of wealth to income is 6.5. For more than 100 years, it has typically fallen between 4 and 5.
"This is a worrying signal given that abnormally high wealth income ratios have always signaled recession in the past," the Credit Suisse report said."

And if he was talking about just a short time, then why was I one who pleaded with the mods for re-instatement of he, mexicomaria and fly? Oh yeah, I am a lib. I would NEVER do that would I? I would never have participated in the GasBuddy Exile thread either, would I? I am a fair poster here. If their is something done to a conservative I do not like, I defend them. I have.

Dem Candidate Accidentally Calls Gov. Haley ‘Whore’ During Campaign Event



"Sheheen was caught on video at an appearance in Florence last week stating “we are going to escort whore out the door” referring to Haley. His gaffe appeared to be a slip from the tongue and he quickly corrected himself stating “we’re going to escort her out the door.”
But immediately after correcting himself, Sheheen has an almost gleeful interaction with the crowd and laughed at his gaffe. Video of the event has gone viral."

Spitter, "Speaking of nefarious activities though, why would btc's place of employment have been contacted?"

Who said anyone had called his place of business?

The only 'proof' we have of that is from btc himself.

The same btc who made up the false people here like LULU and rdamurphy and other false identities.

The same btc who ranted about people exposing his true identity when HE is the one who did exactly that over and over.

So why should we believe that anyone contacted btc's place of business? Or maybe it was one of his liberal buddies so that he had a false reason to once again attack conservatives.

I am convinced that btc was part of the liberal cabal that lied to the mods to get me banned.

Weaslespit, " I have never had cause to report you based on your posts directed towards me or about me ;)"

Nor did they.

Other than that they hated when I held up a mirror to them of what liberals were really like. And they couldn't deal with the truth.

Just a question, since I don't know your full back story, but I was under the impression that AnotherOne was a reference to the fact that you had to create a new account ('another' account)? I know AnotherOne could only post to white boards for quite some time as well...

Well, ministorage may have gotten a note from the mods after you attacked him and tried to get him banned, but that doesn't happen very often.

btc and RNorm both whined to the mods about me so often that they got banned from even seeing me.

I never heard a word from the mods about what they did.

"Gee, how informative! That's nice - so you whine to moddy so much that you have a system down that you follow? Wowzer!"

Over the course of 6 years? Yeah, I've used it a couple of times...

"No. You didn't. You misunderstand. I meant, please elucidate the "personal attacks" for which you whined to moddy."

Didn't you get direct communication from the mods, since you said you received a copy of the quote (your claim)? If so, why the need me to elucidate further? You seem to have a relatively clear recollection since you have been able to summarize what you posted, although watered down so as to seem innocuous.

"(about which I was referring to your faux complaints to me in the Benghazi thread that you had been personally attacked)"

Wrong. You attacked me out of the blue after I posted in the Ferguson thread. You made no attempt to discuss anything posted and instead posted quite venomously over a relatively benign post of mine where I simply stated that we should wait for the facts to come to light before labeling or attacking 'either' party because you were still angry over our debate in the Gaza thread. But apparently, being a 'fence-sitter' in your world is a bad thing.

Sorry, but your response went beyond simple name calling which I ignore - it was unacceptable, a lesson you clearly have not yet learned given your continued belittling attacks.

"Why are you now so reluctant to just spell it out? Just state what your complaint (or complaints) to the mods was/were. If I personally attacked you, then you should know."

See above. And next time, get your facts straight ;)

"If I made "personal attacks" on you, so much you bring it up again, out of the clear blue, then you should be able to explain what you're talking about, for which you whined to moddy, quite easily enough."

Again, see above. And speaking of out of the blue, notice your comments about me posting in tower's Burger Flipping thread ;P

"And, good luck in trying to convince anyone that I'm the one who must be "still be mad....""

Not too hard, since you are still trying to randomly discredit me - see above.

"I would like to think there are only a few adults who will act like 3rd graders running to the teacher all the time."

You see? You are still bitter... More proof. Thank-you again!

Mini, I have reported people for the reasons I gave. It is not because I am pf one political belief or another. It is because of what they do here to break the rules or because of inapropriate behavior, i. e. personal attacks. I have never said I did not do that.

Now I can guess that certain ones will try to make it out that I am attacking conservatives. I am sure they will try to say that, if they have not already.

Oh it is so entertaining to watch the usual liberal suspects spin and talk about how bad everyone other than THEM is.

And how they have reporting conservatives to the mods down to a science in trying to get conservatives in trouble and trying to get them banned.

Typical of a liberal.

Can't keep up in the real world so they use the power of 'government' to pummel the conservative into submission.

ROTFL

So so SO typical of how liberals operate ... whether here or in the "real world".

And another illustration of why liberalism is such a DISASTER every time it is tried.

btc1: "mini, if you think anyone has tried to get you banned you think to much of yourself and your posts."

This has nothing to do with what I think of myself. Weaslespit brought up that he reported me for personally attacking him. This is somewhere over two months ago. And he just brought up again. In this thread. Out of the blue. He opened this can, not me. I asked him to elucidate the attacks.

btc1, "You specifically, I have never reported. Fellow Kentuckians seem to be able to control themselves as far as I have seen."

Well thanks. I think I seem to have some self-control. Somebody really needs to step over the line and say something really heinous if I were to think about getting a post removed, or that it should require a rebuke from a moderator. I would like to think there are only a few adults who will act like 3rd graders running to the teacher all the time.

It seems to me, it may work something like this, if it's their first experience with the poster's complaints, perhaps they'll issue a 'warning'. If a moderator is like most humans, soon enough the moderators will know who the whiners are, and then they start just making people vanish from each other. I had never seen that new moderator's name before, in any of the threads, or anywhere.

btc1: "Even though we disagree on a whole lot of things, I have never seen the need, including the name calling you get into on occassion. Name calling is a natural thing it seems in US Politics. But personal attacks and repeatedly reappearing when gross violations of rules cause bannings is another item all together."

We hardly agree on anything. I've been quite tough with you. You have done your share of name calling also, and have been tough with me. I have never once thought to report you for anything you've said. So I agree with you on that. We debate. Running to moddy isn't about debate. It's about control - and other issues.

btc1: "I have never reported anyone, myself, for anything that did not break rules here or inappropriate behavior."

But, you've obviously reported people - frequently enough that you've gotten yourself banned from seeing them anymore.

Thanks for your input.

"When I report somebody?" Gee, how informative! That's nice - so you whine to moddy so much that you have a system down that you follow? Wowzer! And you suggest to the mods what you think the proper punishment is for the perceived infraction. Gee. What a tough guy you are. Wowzer. *ROTFLOL*

Quoting me: "Would you like to elucidate?"

"I did 2 posts prior, but you don't want to accept the facts. "

No. You didn't. You misunderstand. I meant, please elucidate the "personal attacks" for which you whined to moddy. (You brought this subject up, so it is obviously front and center on your mind; that should be easy to elucidate.)

Again, I was once notified of a complaint by you, about my asking you if you got your witto feewings hurt, and telling you to suck it up (about which I was referring to your faux complaints to me in the Benghazi thread that you had been personally attacked). (The moderator quoted my post verbatim.) That's it - the mods never repremanded me about any personal attacks; there has been no other contact from the mods before or since, in years.

You're the one who brought this stuff up; you decided to open this can of worms. Why are you now so reluctant to just spell it out? Just state what your complaint (or complaints) to the mods was/were. If I personally attacked you, then you should know.

At any rate, whatever amounts of whining to moddy you had made prior to that, I never received any reprimand. Not one. If I made "personal attacks" on you, so much you bring it up again, out of the clear blue, then you should be able to explain what you're talking about, for which you whined to moddy, quite easily enough.

You're the one who brought up that you reported me for personally attacking you. So, it should be at the forefront of your memory.

And, good luck in trying to convince anyone that I'm the one who must be "still be mad...."

*ROTFLOL*

mini, if you think anyone has tried to get you banned you think to much of yourself and your posts. I have never reported anyone, myself, for anything that did not break rules here or inappropriate behavior. You specifically, I have never reported. Fellow Kentuckians seem to be able to control themselves as far as I have seen. Even though we disagree on a whole lot of things, I have never seen the need, including the name calling you get into on occassion. Name calling is a natural thing it seems in US Politics. But personal attacks and repeatedly reappearing when gross violations of rules cause bannings is another item all together.

That is the whole truth. I doubt if anyone else would. Maybe some who would, illegally, abuse their power in LEAs would but not me.

"So any prior attempts to have me banned, must have failed to pass muster with the mods as being an infraction worth warning me about."

Non-existent.

"Would you like to elucidate?"

I did 2 posts prior, but you don't want to accept the facts.

Bottom line is that I have never tried to get you banned. Certainly not for one off-the-hinge post, which is the 'only' time I have ever reported you... When I report somebody, I either ask that they delete the post or warn the member. It is not my place to suggest if somebody should be banned. But something tells me you won't accept this either.

Whatever.

"Another gross understatement... The mods agreed that you were out of line yet you are intent on doubling down and showing who is the one who can't post civilly here."

No, that's what they quoted. Perhaps you have reported me for something before that (it certainly sounds like you have), but that was what they alerted me about. So any prior attempts to have me banned, must have failed to pass muster with the mods as being an infraction worth warning me about. Would you like to elucidate?

"Thank-you for that."

You're welcome.

"Pretty simple stuff here, folks..."

I agree.
Dishonesty is a pretty simple explanation for your posts.
No matter.
It is still the correct one.

"Along with saying "Suck it up Bucky," I also said, "Awwwww, did you get your witto feeewings hurt?"

Obviously you did. Thanks for bringing up how quickly you will resort whine to moddy. Anything else you'd like to discuss? "

"And I'll "weigh in" anytime I want."

Has anybody indicated otherwise? Trust me, we all are quite well aware that nobody here can tell you what you can or cannot do...

"Had you said that, you would not have been reported. Unfortunately your comments were just a bit more poignant."

Yes, The mod copied what you reported me for. Along with saying "Suck it up Bucky," I also said, "Awwwww, did you get your witto feeewings hurt?"

Obviously you did. Thanks for bringing up how quickly you will resort whine to moddy. Anything else you'd like to discuss?

"...he ignores The Tower, but Un ignores him to posts.... and then ignores him again...
Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm..."

Is that a challenging concept? Try it, it takes about 5 seconds to unblock and another 2 to reapply after posting...

Apparently being transparent isn't good enough for some people here.

Hhmmmmmmmmmm

Time for reb to go back to his 'Where is Obama' thread to stalk him some more or to inanely accuse him of spending all of his time at fundraisers, as if no other politician engages in such activities...

No more benign posts for you, if you can't reciprocate ;)
