Cylon? Must have been Cylon you called him.

Heh, yeah. I spelled it right in the original:

You want it to go on for 3 pages? Screaming "false equivalence" or "let's get this thread back on (my) track" is a great start.

Dr. Zaius (Blaska) is here to defend the faith. Don't let him get under your skin.

The Cylon (Meade) is here to troll. But it's tricky because sometimes he speaks the truth. Don't let him get under your skin.

Me? TDPF is a quick boredom fix. Don't let me get under your skin.


Meade's response? He said there was something likeable about me (he likes me! He really....I'll cut my Sally Field short) and told me about his old hunting dogs.

Meade is a likeable guy. So is Schabow. And many others here.

Because 2D text requires thought and precision rather than blurting out BS or accusations. Radio stations can be passively imbibed, sometimes little more than background noise, or 'white noise' regarding madison.

The audience for incoherent hate radio isn't that large, even in Madison.

You are quite correct.
But I guess then that begs the question for jonny and others, "If you cannot defend your worldview and politics here, then why not invite some of your likeminded friends here?"

People are always told how "uneducated" conservatives are, so it should be pretty easy. If that's not doable, then, well, I guess this is a great learning moment for the self-proclaimed "educated" leftists that maybe they are very sheltered and only in such tight spheres can their progressive worldview me made to make sense.

What a gutless coward.

I don't know what an intrade number is, but I thought you leftists thought I was a "pussy"? Now I'm a "gutless coward"?
Coming from leftists, that carries a lot of weight. :lol:

afraid....defend his bigotry in person...being afraid to actually MEET some public employees in person....


Holy obama-matter! You've just become so boring, you've regressed past the teenage angst thing into the "you made my cat fall asleep on my keyboard" stage of ferocity.

Corn and Meade add nothing to the discourse....Put them on an ignore list..


What's with all this leftist begging? I thought ya'll were such self proclaimed edumacated peoples? Mebbe ya'll ain't nuttin but isolated nutbags after all?

He's not ready for prime time until he quits trying to talk in dialect.

Only a dialect to you, babycakes. :D

Cornie
Most people who think they have something to add to the conversation, and are confident in their ability to handle the give-and-take of a dialogue with someone with different opinions, accept with alacrity when offered an hour's air-time on a major radio station.

So why'd you decline my invitation?

A one time note addressing the bread:

Nobody thinks your stupid, but the style of writing you use is intentionally stupid and you can't hope to refute that. You're a conservative, but everybody else is a leftist. The national health care act is "socialist," even though it's not and is nearly identical to health care initiatives proposed or enacted by conservatives like Tommy Thompson and Mitt Romney. You're constantly on the warpath, always ridiculing, mischaracterizing, name calling, conflating bullshit with arguments.

To be fair, there's a large group of people here who have legitimized this form of debate and discussion by eagerly replying to your rantings (again, notice that this is not an attack on you, personally, but on what you have written on these boards). They so eagerly participate that it seems to be why they're here. So maybe that's legit.

But I don't have much use for it. The tone you strike appears to be one of someone who is uncertain of his views, actually. Who needs to be insulting in order to get a point across. You'd rather spit than socialize. Is that what you want? Do you feel good participating in these angry, lonesome exchanges?

I don't put accounts on ignore using the software, I just eventually stop paying attention to posts from those who tend to strike your tone. They're full of bitterness, and I don't need much of that in my life.

Didn't some guy get banned a while ago for calling other forons "pussies" because they wouldn't meet up with him in person?

Nope. That's not why "some guy," your reason for being apparently, was banned. Didn't help though.

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?

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.


I agree with you in that shitty behavior is shitty behavior, regardless of which way it leans. Don't condone it. I don't agree that Meade or Corn have very often made valid points at all, and when they do, they are buried in sixth grade barbs and jibes that I can't get through in order to get to the point. I've ignored both, and I don't feel as though there is much I am missing. There are plenty of other conservative posters here who can make a point without that kind of crap.

Corn (and sometimes Meade and Henry as well) has really just been an embarrassment to himself. Anyone reading his comments can see that. I believe HE knows that. No WAY he would make many of the comments that he makes if he were forced to look you in the eye and defend his points (I bet dollars to donuts he doesn't show up at local school board meetings with this schtick. He'd get thrown out on his ear...just as he should here). That's what cowardly is. Hence he declines Stu's invitation. I think that speaks volumes about what he's really trying to do here. He's not trying to advance discourse (or he'd take the opportunity to do so on a radio show). He takes satisfaction in trying to stir the pot, from his anonymous safe haven. Like I said...he'd get thrown out of any meeting where public discourse is invited (i.e. my school board example). I'm not sure why he doesn't get thrown out here.

Stated above in different ways as I had different reasons, but I guess it all boils down to, "it's not worth my time or effort".

:D I like that...somewhat third person ta boot.

Ya'll may not believe this, but I do sometimes talk like that. I have a very diverse background and though my present life is more generic, white bread so to speak, I still flitter in and out of typing like I sometimes speak. I find it amusing how some people get so upset with it and become almost fixated on it, rather than what I am actually talking about.
And that is very telling about them. I think it clearly demonstrates their arrogance, their (self appointed) elitism, and their ignorance.
I'm OK with who I am, how I talk, how I type.

I am a conservative, but I think others here are too. From what I can tell, there are conservatives, moderates, and leftists. By far most here are leftists, as is the rule in madison, berkley, austin, etc. If whatever is being talked about is a leftist ideology, a core (mis) belief of theirs, and people support it, I just use the term "leftist". I do the same with conservatives and any core conservative beliefs. It just so happens almost all here is leftist, so I use that term a lot here.

The national health care act is "socialist," even though it's not and is nearly identical to health care initiatives proposed or enacted by conservatives like Tommy Thompson and Mitt Romney.

Conservatism is all about States' Rights and local control.
Badgercare is WI as if that's what WI wants, WI should vote to have it. But badgercare cannot and should not be imposed upon the whole nation as we are a Confederation of States, a Constitutional Republic.

That's the big difference between the conservative and leftist worlds--the source of power and control.

Gotta go now.......

I doubt it. I wasn't on. ;)
But to make this a productive day, we got to try out a new wheelchair! I'm going to get a welder to make a rack for it, but other than that, it's pretty portable.
