Unforgivable

September 20, 2013

On the evening of Sept. 5th my daughter and son-in-law had a power problem, so he went to get the generator and it was gone. Police were called. Luckily, his brother had one he could use....

Otherwise simply point out the average mongrel's activities.-Bobbie2

Am I to assume that this is the type of example you want to set? Then go on to explain how "morally superior" the neo-nut philosophy(religion if you prefer)is. Better reach for a slightly higher personal "strata". Preferably one above bedrock.-Scott

When one is addressing society’s sediment, one must not pontificate at a level that eliminates the targeted strata from comprehension of the subject matter.-Bobbie2

You have plenty of room to elevate yourself to a slightly higher strata.--Trust me.

Post your opinions minus the attacks and they will be much more respected. JMO-capricorn1

My hats off, well said.

P.S., I had not read your post before I posted. "2 wrongs do not make a right". That has to be one of the all time high "MOM" comments. LOL, I wonder how many people have heard that growing up?? Have a safe, & happy day!!-Scott

Does "Tea-bagger" ring a bell, explain the difference.-Bobbie2

Priceless, simply priceless, It has been many years since I needed to explain this(to my son who was about 31/2-4yrs. old at the time), but here it goes. In the words of my mother(and I assume many other mothers), "Two wrongs do not make a right." From your post, I get the impression that you feel justified to spew your disgusting moniker insults "because he did it too!!!" Simple immature playground fodder, nothing more.

Question to you, If asked by a 4yr. old to explain both "comments", which do you think would be easier to "answer"?-Scott

Sometimes what you do not do is as revealing as what you do. I have noticed(not that there is anything wrong with it, IMO)that you do not have a problem voicing your opinions when you disagree with someone.(usually the left, again, nothing wrong). I find this interesting.-Scott

Bobbie, there is no difference but two wrongs don't make a right and you surely don't want to be looked at in the same category as others that stoop to those tactics. You often make some very good points. However, when you precede your opinion with name calling or attacks, it instantly takes away from anything you are trying to say and ruins your credibility. Post your opinions minus the attacks and they will be much more respected. JMO

Capricorn, I will be specific if you wish. Does "self______" ring a bell? Care to defend it? -Scott

Why would I defend it? I'm not playing on some "team" here. Personally I despise anyone who tows the party line on either side of the aisle because as far as I'm concerned it just shows how close minded they are.

"There is nothing which I dread so much as a division of the republic into two great parties, each arranged under its leader, and concerting measures in opposition to each other. This, in my humble apprehension, is to be dreaded as the greatest political evil under our Constitution." -John Adams

Personally, I don't know how such people can sleep.-Cheyenne

You raise some very compelling points. It is sad that some people are so narcissistic that they could care less about anyone else. It appears to me at times that people do not care at all about their fellow man. It's sad. Have a safe & happy night.-Scott

"and to do it to a blind person is unforgiveable"

Since when does it make a difference who the victim of the crime is?-enigma

In the eyes of the courts, I do not believe there is a difference. Theft is theft, and not to be accepted in any form--This is what was instilled(among many other things)in my upbringing. That being stated, there were certain times that the same behavior was looked upon as being worse. For example if a woman got attacked & beat up, it was considered worse than if it was a man. Both are wrong, but at certain times certain people were afforded consideration because of their circumstances.(children, handicapped, elderly, etc.). Women/children/elderly people were to be protected, as they were less capable of doing it themselves. I do not know what you were taught, but if you think there is not a difference in certain circumstances, you should sit down & have a long ponder about your principles. Seriously.-Scott

Sadly, stories such as this are not all that uncommon. There have been numerous instances reported of people stealing donation jars, many of them donations for children with various illnesses. Personally, I don't know how such people can sleep.

It merely proves liberals are so thin-skinned that they cannot take their own tactics turned against them.-eriklatranyi

Is there anything that you do not like about the conservative "religion"? Is everything a liberal does wrong? Is everything a conservative does right? I'm sincerely curious.-Scott

Capricorn1, truthfully I am not sure where Shaman sits.

Ritty, I will blame them, their goal is to destroy the affordable heath care act at all cost, that includes shutting down the government. I just watched hearings on the food stamp program and it just shows how out of touch the republicans really are. It makes me so glad I changed parties in 1999. But again the republicans will take the heat on this.

Rick, I know and like I said, they fall under both parties and I just choose to ignore them. Except for Shaman of course and that's because of his disdain for the military and the fact that he calls everyone a racist that isn't a liberal. There's only a handful I actually choose to comment with on here.

Rick, you said that you specifically will blame them. I'm asking why. Why, if both the Senate and the House vote down a funding measure, will the GOP get the blame from you?

Capricorn1, it is pretty obvious to the most casual observer.

Ritty, we will see. Most experts agree the republican house, which already has a dismal rating, will take the blame for shutting down the government.

I do not see you or anyone else condemning a certain poster on these boards that makes up overtly disgusting monikers towards others. -Scott

Could you please be more specific? There are a few on here from both political parties that fall under your description. Thanks.

Rick, if the House sends a funding bill to the Senate and they vote it down, make changes, and send it back to the House, which votes that down, how is it that the GOP is to blame for any government shutdown?

Well I guess if we are on the blame game, I certainly will blame republicans for shutting down our country, a political suicide mission for sure. So go ahead do it. Then we will watch the outcome of the 2014 election.

Rick:

The point is that liberals run to the microphones and blame conservatism for things like a shooting a military base, but when I blame liberals for crime, those same liberals get indignant about it.

It merely proves liberals are so thin-skinned that they cannot take their own tactics turned against them.

enigma:

""and to do it to a blind person is unforgiveable"

Again, that is the statement that immediately hit me too. And like you, I also wondered if the writer thought it was any less forgivable if a generator, or any property, was stolen from a sighted, healthy person. I was also curious where the generator was kept. Anything of any value that I own, especially if it was essential for health reasons, would be in a locked basement, shed, garage, etc. and if it was, and the breaking & entering & robbery was reported to the police, homeowner's insurance should replace it.
