Election will tell tale

January 18, 2014

While Obama and the Democrats were so proud of themselves for forcing that monstrosity through, which is quickly becoming the Unaffordable Careless Act, and to have done so in such a completely......

Boy does it give me a warm fuzzy feeling inside every time the hippocrit churchlady accuses me of penning something she don't like.

Relene, you flatter me. I have to admit that I enjoy knowing that after all this time I still get under your skin, even without trying !

I always identify myself and always have, unlike a few cowards from your side, who post here.

Scott, in the past we have always been able to debate with respect. Suddenly when you feel I responded to the local troll in a threatening manner you choose to question my intentions. Quite honestly, my intention was to prove a well known fact that in the age of social media, many feel empowered to say things in the privacy of their home and behind a keyboard, that they wouldn't have the courage to say face to face.

Respectfully, I do not need your "permission" to voice my opinions. I was not defending anyone, but rather questioning your response. Also, If you post, and are offended, have your feelings hurt, or get upset over others "challenging" your point of view--I would suggest find another "hobby".-Scott

Scott,

No problem. Thank you for your courteous response...My mother always taught me, consider the source. Both you and Cap need to do that. Thanks again! Glad to see you back!

O.K., folks...chill....

Cap, the previous post you just responded to is a troll, possibly another JH/Sham/Cheryl?whomever....

Don't feed the trolls as I am occasionally advised by friends of mine.

Scott hasn't been on here long enough to know the deep disrespect that he has and continues to show to just about everyone here in some capacity or another. Please note that Scott, on the other hand vastly differs on how he responds to posters, even those he disagrees with. As do you! :) Don't allow a third party, bring both of you to heads. Both of you are too smart for this and too intelligent. If it makes you feel better, most of us do ignore him but get pulled in to his comments once in awhile and I can't speak for anyone else, but later on I'm angry with myself for allowing it to happen. :)

Hey park, I don't think it's any of your business how I choose to spend my time. I d a m n sure earned my pension and currently I'm choosing to help care for my elderly mother so she doesn't have to go in a home. Before that I cared for my father who recently died from Alzheimer's. I left a career making close to six figures to move back home to help my parents. So in the future I suggest you mind your own business when you know nothing about me. Have a great night everyone...

If you're under 60 and healthy, and you collect unemployment, or a pension that barely covers the bills, and you could work, but choose instead to stay at home all day and post, you are a moocher off the system. No matter what you did in your 20 years of working.

Scott, I take a lot of crap on here from that imbecile, especially regarding my military career. So excuse me if you think I'm not acting like an "adult" when I respond with the same amount of disrespect that was given to me. Those that know me on these boards know the majority of the time I treat everyone with respect even if I don't agree. For you to come to the defense of a man who was the one in the wrong to begin with and shows absolutely no respect to anyone, makes me wonder. Respectfully, in the future, stay out of it.

rmiller,

Thank you very much for the post. You are correct, we often do not agree, at times we do. This being said, we always seem to manage to do so in a sincere, mature(at least I think so)way. I sincerely do enjoy "talking" with you, & you do have my respect, as I feel you deserve respect- you are civil, sincere,& honest in your thoughts. I just wish others could show a little respect for each other. I was brought up to handle "disagreement" with other points of view in a more mature manner. Again, thank you for your thoughts. Be Happy & Safe!!!-Scott

He has disrespected me WAY too many times.-Capricorn1

If it makes you feel any better, next time he does it I will jump in & help you. I had just always thought that you were old enough to take care of yourself in a mature fashion. Guess I was mistaken, my apologies.-Scott

Very good post!!! I have had this experience many times when "trying" to have an honest conversation with people from the "Right".(some are family members) It is refreshing to read a post such as the one I am responding to. Thanks for brightening up my day!! Be Safe, & Happy!!!-Scott

. I appreciate your attempt at being the hall monitor though.-Capricorn1

Most would call it being adult(maybe not most from this area) The "He did it first" defense?--Really?? You must be having a bad day. I have always considered your posts to be sincere,& well thought out. I do not always agree with you, though I do quite often. IMO, your post was akin to playground taunting, so I voiced my opinion, if you do not like it, well sorry.-Scott

Who says I do not take my message there and to other parts of the country?

Eric, you're adding to this nonsense because.

A. Your trying to change someone's mind.

B. Your trying to get a point across.

C. You want to see something of yours in print.

Eric, you can get into some good political debate here. The problem is that sometimes you have to engage each other through the "noise". It's an open forum, and that is what you have with open forums.

It doesn't take long to figure out who will engage in that "good debate" and who is here to troll.

gavin Political debate is good. What happens here is pointless. I don't need to read anything that goes on here to tell you exactly what the usual suspects are saying because they are here so much. My point is, really, they like to hear themselves talk and don't really care about change or they'd take their message somewhere that matters. If you think this is political debate than I am sorry for that.

Whoever said they thought they were accomplishing change here? The "sport" of political debate has been around for centuries and these boards are no different than our society as a whole.

Are there posters/posts that attack an individual rather than debate the point? Yes. It's an open forum, and it is what it is.

If the posts on these boards bother you, then I would recommend that you stop reading them and move along.

Do you not get tired of writing the same message, to the same people, with the same responses, day in and day out? This area is already voting conservative, republican, right-wing, tea-party, or however you want to define your involvement to the anti-democrat cause. Why not take your message to Philly, Pittsburgh and Harrisburg where you might have a chance to sway a "liberal" your way and actually could have a chance at change? Regurgitating the same old opinion 100 times a day simply does nothing to help your cause here. If anything it comes across as sore-loser grumblings that lead to character attacks on the very people reading the articles, who already voted your way; or for those who voted opposite of you, you mechanically reject their message or opinion as wrong because it wasn't yours. It really becomes pointless. Just like this message will because it will never stop you from thinking you are accomplishing change here.

I find it amusing that liberals, who hate Wall Street, big business and the stock market would cite it as an indicator of a good economy when the same rise in the stock market under Bush was called corporate welfare, the rich getting richer and the usual liberal tripe.

Scott,

You and I have conversed and disagreed perhaps more often than not and still come out with a decent exchange. Cap and I agree on most, but not always and he/she has always done so with civility. Sham/JH/Cheryl have a long time history of cheap shot and utter derogatory commentary to anything remotely "right, conservative, moderate" views that conflict with his/her inner person(s). Please don't get caught up in this discourse. I've not seen Cap get cheap in shots, nor you....You are above this....the more Sham is ignored, the louder he/she gets. The problem now is the facts are glaring to liberals and only foolish ones are clinging to their visions for "change". Realists are facing the error of their ways.

"MrShaman, one thing is clear on this site, the extremist, right wing posters do not like facts."

No facts, just liberal talking points Silverfeather...me thinks you might be just another personality of Sham...
