I'm not sure, but I think Cornie has declined my invitation.

Too bad. I thought it was a good idea to invite him on.

I wonder what the Intrade numbers were for him showing up?
What a gutless coward. I knew he'd be afraid to actually show his face and defend his bigotry in person. Sort of like Earthling being afraid to actually MEET some public employees in person in an effort to grow and perhaps get a different perspective.

Corn and Meade add nothing to the discourse. Nothing. Put them on an ignore list, and you don't lose a dissenting opinion or another angle. You lose nothing.

Yes bdog. I'm intolerant of bigotry. And random shitting on threads. And of those who take satisfaction in stirring the pot and in others anxiety and anger. I'll own that. Oh...and thanks for casting that blanket over all liberals rather than just directing it at me. Brilliant strategy. I guess you must also be clairvoyant and know how I vote and lean. Nice to know there are posters here with super powers.

Imagine how much of a jackwagon one has to be to wind up on multiple-users "block" lists....anonymously....in an online forum. THAT has nothing to do (I would bet) with people blocking folks who have dissenting opinions (I haven't blocked you...right?). This also is not a very good management of one's digital footprint in Meade's case.

Self described? Only you have described me that way Henry.

Are you my sock puppet or am I yours?

Since you seem to be implying that I am a right winger, how do you reconcile that with the fact that I support gay marriage, abortion and mercy killing? Are these right wing talking points or is it something else?

Cmon Henry, for once just answer a question.

You constantly use liberal like a cuss word. Yet you claim you aren't firmly in the conservative camp.

Make up your mind.

Help me understand this: Why would you be tolerant of shitty behavior? Is it simply because it's supportive of ideology in which you agree?

You (once again) did not answer the question.

But I did not expect you to.

I don't tolerate Henry Vilas' shitty behavior.

Bert you actually have a point though. If this were a conservative leaning forum I think I would call Meade and Cornbread on some of their stuff. Since they're outnumbered here and derided even when they make valid points I let the other things slide.

Honestly though if you saw Vilas from my point of view he would drive you nuts.

If you are not a moderate, then are you an extremist? You claim not to be a Republican because you disagree with some of their positions on social issues. I've yet to see you attack the political right like you attack the left. You do play toady to Meade, who is a self-described (however erroneously so) moderate.

Henry you may call me whatever you want. Just let me know and I will start identifying myself as such. I think Amerasian might be appropriate.

Your memory of the Blaska days is not good if you think I've never attacked someone from the right. But you are right, I generally don't attack Meade (who I once called a Ceylon btw) or Cornbread. I did take PB to task once for questioning your military service.

See my reply to Bert for more of my take on that.

If Cornbread won't appear on your show, maybe Taco will. He's much more balanced, anyway--cornbread is primarily carbohydrates with a little egg and sugar, but a taco is a meal.
