I've seen pretty crappy things happen to people in public who choose to divulge they are conservative.


So you want to anonymously profess that public employees are, in general, lazy, and unaccountable, and unskilled (as you have....but .....wait for it...wait for it......here' comes a denial I'm sure). But you just don't want to alienate your friends, neighbors, and coworkers by actually having that discussion with them directly face to face. You don't want friends and neighbors or coworkers -- some of whom may be liberal or even public servants -- to know how poorly you think of them as a whole. You just want to scream it anonymously from the mountain top.
I would think that would be a very difficult way to want to go through life....hiding from one's own views.

Yes, that's the huge difference between the liberals on this board, and the new crop of right-wing trolls. I would happily share my views in public with friends and acquaintances, whereas Cornbread and Earthling and his ilk wouldn't dare to do so.

And that is a big reason why TDPF has turned into a cesspool.

Earthling has made some honest posts in this topic and gets nothing but snark in return. You from the other side could try just a little bit harder.

Now go post in the gum thread.

Or not. Some labels are so 'deadly/toxic' that the mere mention of them, use the word is prohibited.

I've always been amazed by how a word can become so powerful.
The US Military is funded by 'socialism'.
But that's one of the FEW constitutional functions of the national government. So the modern european view of 'socialism' is more along the lines of socialist new party obama's "secretary" being in charge of restaurant portion sizes and vending machines......

Words? Word? A word? a k i b i e n e ...
Just a collection of letters. I don't know why leftists are so fearful of some groups of them. :shock: :shock: :shock:

The horror....the horror.....

Then good for you and good for stu.

But he ignores all other things that could insult the frail glass surrounding him. My bad....I almost trusted a leftist to be, well, not a leftist.

enjoy you tricked out walker.

Ain't that and ain't mine, but thanks anyway.

Reply to Earthling:

The trick is in the delivery when it comes to standing up for one's principles, conservative or liberal or whatever. The same goes for belonging to a less-popular religion, having a different sexual orientation, or being another kind of minority.

Try being courteous, good-humored, thoughtful, a good listener, and a good explainer who uses facts and "I believe" statements instead of flat declarations. Lose the mean talk when it comes to politics (and yes, you do know what I'm talking about).

Don't expect to convert anybody, just state what you think and listen to what others say. Pick your fights, and realize you don't always have to prevail. Ask yourself how you come off to others and make some modifications. You might be surprised.

Says someone who knows little or nothing about our Constitution.

The Congress shall have Power To lay and collect Taxes, Duties, Imposts and Excises, to pay the Debts and provide for the common Defence and general Welfare of the United States...

Article I, Section 8

So this is the pulitzer prize board? :lol: They look like they were out holding "recall walker!" signs in madison. :lol:

Seems like a common thread of all those people is they are 'journalists', formerly called 'reporters', not more accurately referred to as 'creative writing advocates'.

BTW, if you ever get the head of the UW journalism school ask 'it' if they teach "advocacy journalism"......if it says 'no', then ask it, "are you sure, you never bragged about it in an interview on WORT?".......

Go figure


I know! Leftists.... :lol:

And that was the last era worth listening to, as far as they were the only ones playing new music.

And lest we forget, the 'Ta dah dah daaaah, new LP at 3".

Is that israeli female still there on Wed for their call in show? She used to hate me. :D

The day Cornie was too busy

Wasn't too busy. You do seem to get things wrong a lot.
What I said is basically, you weren't worth my time or energy.
But if ya must flatter yourself, have at it.

Good point, but something very lost on those in the dominant position in the thug infested, dominant institution of an area.

Part of why many use this forum is the annonymity it provides. Especially those of us "conservatives" living in Madison. Generally speaking it's not the best idea to go around advertizing that in this town.


When I would go back to madison to visit relatives, they had concern that I would use their phone to call in wOrT, if they could trace the number back to their home. Bumperstickers are also only put on by the brave. Yard signs?

I won't play the madison leftist "what are you talking about?" bullshit. We know what we are talking about. This is why the leftists are, well, who they are....

:lol: You must be a leftist. :lol:
I could tell ya some things, but you're just a leftist, so I know you really aren't sincere in what you are asking about. (did I end that sentence with "about"? So uneducated midwestern).

You remind me of the cookie cutter leftist that wants to name of any terrorist in afghanistan and if no one can provide it for you, well then there are none. Or prove that there are illegals where....

Fluke! Leftists are pretty funny.

The strawman is fabricated and put up for the public.

And now, the leftist proclaims attributes to these strawmen.

And that is a big reason why TDPF has turned into a cesspool.

Finally--and predictably from the sheltered left--the 'resolution'.

Ban Them Board! Remove them from our minds............

Well then I guess then that they can have some secretary appointed that will control the vending machines in the corner gas stations.

Oh, was the word "abortion" in there or did I miss it?
Maybe it was "sucking your child out of your womb with a vacuum is OK if you change your mind"? Oops, they didn't have vacuums or dumpsters back then.

:D

No, actually. I don't have a clue what you're talking about. I'm not even sure if you know what you're talking about.
