LtTE Overreactions

There are many people I respect on here, so it seems very odd to me when they go so off base with critiques on their own writings.

"and only contributes to the current toxic polarization that threatens the future of the nation we all live in."

Oh my gosh you even think before you write? The vast majority of your writings (letters or on the boards) squarely put the blame upon the Right and especially the Tea Party. I only offered a counter to even it up.

Let's face no way did you counter a single thing I wrote. You just said it was wrong without offering ANY facts. When I wrote my letter, I explained myself quite clearly. In fact, if you had paid more attention to the boards on here, I even offered you more clarification. But it seemed you were more focused on calling me out.

"calling the president a "pig" is akin to the silliness exhibited at last week's "hate Obama""

Swing and a miss Fred. I really question if you were so upset by my letter that you had a moment of being reading impaired or that you are getting forgetful. Let me put up a quote,

"In imitation of Orwell's villains, the ideologues in the House of Representatives..."

Who are the villains in the story Fred? Wasn't it pigs? Were you not calling them pigs Fred?

How was that right Fred but when I did was wrong?

"but Orwell's works are universal and open to interpretation"

Unless it seems if you do not approve of it Fred. I merely took Animal Farm and applied it toward Obama and you flipped out. I'm sorry but that's what you did.

"While I commend Kendall for attaching his own name to his erroneous opinions,"

Nothing erroneous about my opinions. Nor have you shown them to be.

"I said the fact Mr. Obama was re-elected indicates (in spite of the claims of right wing pundits) that many Americans do support the Affordable Care Act."

As I said, no evidence that supports that notion up. There are polls however that shown that people did not like Romney's stances on same-sex marriage and immigration though.

"Kendall's silly complaint.."

Nice ad hominem Fred. Nothing silly by not agreeing with you.

"he believes Orwell's works somehow "belong" only to far right tea party extremists."

HAHA, where did you get that notion? Where Fred? Did I once tell you or anyone "left" they couldn't use it?

An Oct.13 letter from James Kendall ("Wrong people being vilified") erroneously claimed (in my Oct. 3 letter) I suggested President Obama is "infallible." I said no such thing!"

In straight out But you strongly implied that because Obama got meant the people must approve Obamacare. Otherwise Romney would be President. I disagreed with that, still do and have yet been shown by you why that position should be changed. Also, I never said you called him infallible. You purposely misquote me Fred. I believe there is a word before infallible that your ego wouldn't allow to be seen. It was "nigh". Do you know what nigh means?

"I can appreciate how the recent rule change might be useful in allowing writers such as myself to correct false statements..."

Or people like myself to put out a letter to critique overzealous and fringe leaning writers on here.

"submitted in haste by reactionary writers with a penchant for playing sophomoric "gotcha" games that sometimes submerges factuality, good sense and good manners."

Though there was no haste in the letter I wrote. There was no "gotcha". No more than a professor correcting a student. I think Fred can appreciate that.

I had to smile tonight when I read the letters to the editor. I wasn't really surprised to see Fred putting one up to soothe his ego from the critique I put up last weekend.

Let me be clear, I like Fred and his writings. I don't always agree with them but I always feel I get something out of them of use.

Now let's look at the most recent letter...
