    I think the left is starting to get really desperate. Ive never seen the yahoo leftists so frantic. Its almost funny.

    Ill give you some examples. I responded to a leftist (who happened to be from New Zealand) complaining how President Bush supporting the Patriot act and ammendment protecting marriage somehow takes the freedom from the people to choose for themselves and somehow violates the Constitution. In my response i noted:

    1)That John Kerry voted for the Patriot act.

    2)And i contended that no one could find any of their rights that have been violated by the Patriot act.

    3)That the Constitutional ammendment to protect marriage is in fact protecting the peoples right to choose because the people have already voted on the matter and they shouldnt have judges and civil authorities unlawfully over turning the publics choice on such an issue.

    Thinking about it more i should have pointed out that there is no right to gay marriage, there never was, so proposing an ammendment to define marriage as between a man and a woman cannot possibly take away anyones rights. but thats besides the point. I am not arguing for the patriot act or for the constitutional ammendment for marriage in this thread. the point of my thread is more the responses to the points.

    Every single response was either that i was:

    A)Stupid
    B)Deluded
    C)Psychopathic

    Not one even attempted to deal with the points. now even at yahoo usually there is atleast one person who tries to deal with the points.

    I pointed out to one of the responders that if i was so wrong, show me instead of just saying so and he responded that i was psychopathic and shouldnt be so negative and im just like...wah? I mean im defending the President from attacks and then turn around and get attacked rather than dealing with anything i said and im negative? There is so much projection from the left of their weaknesses on others its not funny!

    Then there was a guy who tried to argue that Bush had no chance of beating Kerry in the debates. And then tried to argue that Bush got trounced by Al Gore in the debates four years ago. And so i pointed out to him that Al Gore was leading until the debates so it seems a majority of Americans disagreed with him if Bush took the lead because of them. And i also pointed out that Al Gore tried to change his tactics and image in all three debates and that wouldnt have been necessary if he had won them. He would have just stuck with the winning combination. and yet this guy thinks im stupid and deluded for not seeing that Gore won the debates and that Bush is a moron.

    You would think after 20 years Democrats would come up with better arguments then "You're stupid" I mean they have been using them since Reagan. Still Ive never seen them so rabid as tonight. Its going to get worse towards the election. its almost entertaining if it wasnt so sad. Anyway, atleast there are some intelligent people on the left here....ok so i can only think of one. but still.

    Avatar, you are a braver person than I. There is no way I can do more than occassionally read messages posted off an article on Yahoo! Jenine thinks she saved me from Yahoo! purgatory, I must concur!

    I imagine though, that we will see more and more of their ilk here. Keep the :trolls: smilie at the ready! :cool: :laugh: And use this, :poke: when appropriate!

    OMG, Kathianne, this sounds like me. I still home page to Yahoo and it's like a sickness sometimes to view the posts from the News I click on. It's actually getting easier to avoid lately, and laugh at. Mostly thanks to USMB!

    What do you think a about a Yahoo marathon where we could refer-link to this site, and try to get the few sane people left to sancuary and away from the trolls on Yahoo? Call it a USMB membership drive, if you will. Have moderators on call to ban the stupid fleas who follow along. Good or bad thing?

    Doesnt sound bad to me but you might want to ask those who would have to moderate the nut jobs.
