It is shameful to have a leader act as this one does. Just ask most veterans.
W.A. lives in P-burg.
You have said, in the past, that you live in California, Harry.
And now I'm done with this vain conversation about where I live. You may waste your time obsessing over where I live, but I choose not to waste any more of mine.
Tiredofit, You don't know where I live.
A while back, you imagined that I live in Las Vegas. You were wrong. I do not, nor have I ever, lived within hundreds of miles of Las Vegas.
I've been to Las Vegas on business 5 or 6 times, but the longest time I ever spent there lasted 4 or 5 days.
Of course, I've been to a lot of places. I've been to Belpre, too, but I've never lived there.
“I am sure it would be a long drive for you Harry.”
I don’t understand how that comment pertains to the discussion, Tiredofit. Would you care to explain yourself?
If you believe in eternal life, you have to believe that we will someday meet besides this board.
Ithink if you met me in person you wouldn't see or hear nothing that would suggest to you that I harbour the opinions that I express on here.
"I doubt, myth, if you are a card carrying hater of conservatism and faith in God, but your posts show that you qualify."
I only care about Christians when they are doing something that could affect me.
I've know really nice humble Christians and I've known and been witness to the holier than thou types getting into a massive anger filled argument amongst themselves that lead to animosity between them to the point where they didn't talk to each other anymore.
Its those types a truthfully dont like.
Plans change man plans change.
I doubt, myth, if you are a card carrying hater of conservatism and faith in God, but your posts show that you qualify.
On the subject of name-calling:
I’d rather not cry when folks demonize me, and remember that their terminology exposes their psychology. The mouth speaks out of the abundance of the heart.
And those who resort to name-calling and other emotionally-charged methods of arguing weaken their own arguments. Social psychologists have found that attitudes formed as a result of rational thinking are more stable and resistant to counter-persuasion than attitudes formed from emotions.
"Conservatives don't rally behind the republican banner, yes they vote republican because the other choice is socialism. You will find far more true conservatives either unregistered or in the libertarian movement."
If that were true we would actually see a sizable third party out there.
But we don't. Its a still a dysfunctional two party system.
You need to understand something. I am not a card carrying defender of Obama.
It does get hard to maintain ones civility when dealing with fanatics.
When reason fails to carry the conversation people start relying on their base instincts to convey their message.
"Do the leftist make their point offensively by calling people hostage takers, arsonists, references to bombs strapped to chest.etc."
The question is who doesn't do that?
But I blame the media for instilling a rabid sensibility in the people of this nation.
Drama sells and rage amps up the drama so the media spews forth the venom that insures people stay in constant state of rage/outrage.
"A govt big enough to satisfy all your needs is one that can take everything you work for. And for those that don't think they will ever have anything, I suppose that sounds great."
I agree but again too bad that this isn't conveyed in a better manner.
"Do you REALLY believe that I don't want little Billy to go to the doctor?"
"Obamacare for instance is not and never has been about healthcare. Its about wealth redistribution."
I don't believe that. I do believe its a hap hazard knee jerk reaction to a problem that would be better dealt with in other ways.
"Conservative and liberals have a lot in common despite what the left wing media tells you. Both want children to be warm and fed, old people too but I believe it is MY responsibility, not govt."
I agree and I respect your position on that.
Too bad the party that represents you is dang foolish in their attempt to convey that to the people.
"You are clearly confusing republicans with conservatives, I didn't ask about republicans."
Conservatives for the most part rally behind the Republican banner so they are one and the same in my book.
