    Spin, huh? You don't think you have a bias and that bias doesn't effect your perceptions? I didn't say they were off hand comments, I said the comments were made in an off-hand way. You want to hang this discussion on the use of the word "hate", so be it.

    The event turned out to have been named something relatively innocuous, it was one of the participants who started the "Hate Bush" rumor.

    Sure I'm biased, but I didn't use the word hate, YOU did! No matter what you say, NO ONE in this thread was speaking of hate until you arrived.

    Sort of like the other day when Psychobabble brought Rush Limbaugh into the conversation and then swore up and down about how we look up to him when not a single person but himself brought the name up. It wasn't true for him, and us "hating" the democratic hopefuls in no more true for you. I think they're laughable, but I don't hate them for their shortcomings.

    I don't really hate Bush, I'm sure he's a nice guy, I just think he's a lousy president.

    Posh, come up with another explanation then? I don't think Repub is a derrogatory expression. Since what is and isn't derogatory is entirely subjective, just for you, I'll start abbreviating their party name with the rep. instead of repub .
    MB beleive it or not, I sometimes vote for republicans, I just don't agree with direction the party is headed currently. If you read the recent rip on PNAC, you'll have a better understanding of why.

    No, they were being derrogatory. The were not discussing political positions or the vision of the candidates, they were trying to decide who looked constipated. My thought was...
    for liberals. Words sound familiar, Jim? You used them when it was the dems meeting to oust Bush. The only people who called that fundraiser a "Hate Bush" meeting was Matt Drudge and the reporters too lazy to do their own research, and yet it is a big enough point for you to open a thread for the topic.
    The argument is daft from its' inception, this is a free country, you can think and say anything you like. I'm just pointing out that partisans of all stripes tend to think and say extreme things. You don't hate the dem candidates, do you Jim? You really just think they are all pinheads, two of them so much so they just crapped their pants, but you don't hate them, 'cause you never used the word hate. Still, your feelings came through all the same.
    I hope that didn't sting to much, but really, what is good for the goose is good for the gander.

    Don't worry dijetlo... I use Dem and Repub all the time. I don't have any patience for those who use terms like Dumb-o-crap or Re-puke-lickers, though.

    It's called humor, I'm sorry you don't have that particular sense. You need to go back to school if you think laughing at and hating are the same thing.

    Is "liberals" suddenly a bad word? I personally think it relates to worthless pieces of shit, but I don't hate them.

    When did I open a thread on the topic? Do you even bother to read and comprehend before throwing out silly accusations?

    Gee, thanks for your permission. :rolleyes:

    "crapped their pants"? What are you talking about? Are you still trying to attribute statements to me that I didn't make? Seriously man, please get your facts straight before posting.

    Did what sting? If anything you have me laughing at your inability to simply read responses before posting. It's really not hard! Try quoting the exact words next time, it may help you with your failing memory. :laugh:

    I wonder why my accuser hasn't returned to acknowledge his reading comprehension was faulty? :laugh:

    Busy with other things, Junior, I made a statement about the the thread and you jumped up to defend it. Now you don't want anybodys statements but your own considered. Go back and read the posts, try again. I didn't say "you" were engaging in hate speech, I was reffering to the tenor of the thread, and was repeatedly clear about that.
    Work on your own reading comprehension, mines fine. If you want to use a ploy to shift away from an argument you are loosing, you're going to have to come up with a better one than that.

    Again read carefully, I never said they shouldn't do it, in fact I encouraged it, I just tied it to the righteous indegnation expressed by the same people at a dem fundraiser. Stay on point, Junior.

    If you didn't hate them, you wouldn't have that opinion of them, would you? If you choose to not use the word "hate" go ahead. You needn't restrain yourself though, everybody who reads your posts concerning liberal thinking is familiar with your feelings.

    Here's the thread, you are correct in that it was started by MB, you did participate in it. The confusion stems from your incorrect assumption that in my statements about this thread I am talking exclusively about you.

    This aint all about you, Junior. Get over yourself. Re-read my post and try to wrap your brain around who I am talking about when I made this statement:

    You can't figure out that I'm reffering to the far right in my post because I am responding to you when I make the statement. Understandable mistake on your part. The fact that you follow it up with insults is childish and smacks of a desperate attempt to divert attention away from the subject we're discussing. I certainly don't think I've ever lost an argument to you, Jim. I currently have you on another thread arguing that 1 * 1.03 expresses the same value as 2*1.03. Check the mirror, I think you tin foil hat is on backwards...:laugh:
