For the Deleted Ones #1

My Recent Posts

Well, it looks like we have multiple "authors" lately that get their rocks off by deleting other's comments. It must be an easy life, just giving those who you disagree with the Red X, just as somebody we know would eliminate news reporters who don't "see it their way".

So much for Free Speech!

Feel free to copy what you most likely know will be deleted right here. No Red X's on this post (Except for Ryan M., as he has seen fit to bring his slander and name-calling over here)

Bill-Regarding deleted-I will delete if they use too much foul language, because young people read my posts, so all of the "intercourse you" stuff gets deleted, mostly because of liability showing obscene language, even though there is plenty of it on the internet, of course. No F-bombs for the young an impressionable, and, of course, other professional considerations.

Bill, I did delete and ban someone today.  I will do so if that person violates my rules of insulting or threatening my family or calling me a racist.  
 
Other than that I allow anyone to comment.  I think it’s fair to have a couple of rules to abide by based upon the author’s preference.
 
But I agree it that some have taken it too far.  I’m not sure what Mogg Tsur’s point is and well, Ryan is an intolerable, religious, nutcase.

Bill H--- People want confirmation bias and echo chambers, it soothes their narcissistic mentality.  One that this nation has coddled since Reagan.
 
I might hold a bigoted belief, convince me through legitimate debate, you might actually change my mind. If your position is valid, defend it.
 
I accept that a conversation may wander off "topic" but if we don't flesh out the issue, in all its aspects, how are we ever to find common ground?

Oh and you're a bastard too!  How dare you say that you won't delete my rantings and ravings that have NOTHING to do with anything, especially the topic at hand.

”Jeffrey is a loony tune liberal,”
 
Better than being a right-wing, egotistical, authoritarian douchebag.
 
“who is grossly ahistorical,”
 
Yeah, that makes no sense.  
 
“and presents himself as if he has twenty mouths and one ear, instead of the one to two proportion, we were all mostly created with.”
 
Yeah, that also makes no sense.  Is this what happens when you become a bible-thumping idjit?

If somebody wants to delete for profanity, I guess I don't have an issue with that. Everyone to their own standards.
My main objective here is to allow the space for opposing viewpoints.
I will admit that I was "reprimanded" by the FCC back in the late '60's for running an unlicensed 5 watt FM broadcast station that didn't quite jive with what were called "Establishment" viewpoints of the time. It was surprised to find out that I had quite an audience when someone at the Junior College I was attending suggested that I listen to this "new station on the dial". The format was me and my friends favorite tunes and some interjected live call-in telephone discussion with "guest" radio hosts.
Simple station - a Carl Cordover FM transmitter module driving a home-brew RF amplifier, a Wollensak reel to reel tape deck, and a Heathkit phone patch.
 
Although I may begin firing some Red X's at those who take advantage of this post simply to constantly taunt, demean, and slander other WB users.
Does that seem fair?
(I know Gerrilea is kidding). Yes, I can be a Bastard at times for sure!

And somehow I'm the bad one for pointing it out? Or that you shouldn't vote?

Bill H-
Thanks for changing the title of this article to make it more inclusive of those who would censor opinions or language they despise.  Here's my latest salvo in Mock's general direction, which i don't expect to last long:
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
I strongly suspect that your petty martinet/strumpet insult tactics will result in no one acknowledging your presence at all, before long.  Being roundly ignored where you have not the power of the red x may teach you something important - but nah, i suspect you'll be FAR too arrogant and haughty to take the lessons of humility without being severely and repeatedly humbled/humiliated, first...not only on WB, but IRL, as well.
 
Keep it up.  You'll see.  You may not LEARN, but you'll see.

”You have standards? Pshaw!”
 
Sure I do.
 
 “Your Momma wears combat boots!”
 
Actually my mother wears very sensible sneakers due to foot problems.
 
“Nananananaaaaaaaaa.”
 
Are we having a psychotic break?
 
“Taking it too far yet???
 
“Okay here, let's try this:  You leach off the teat of the state for your employment”
 
Actually I have to do rather extensive training to do my job.  My job includes making sure that federal funds totaling millions of dollars is appropriately allocated for the care of children in state custody.  
 
“then get more for your child.”
 
Technically since my taxes are included in that I’m simply getting a return on my investment.  It’s the essence of capitalism, is it not?
 
“You sit and argue on blogs all day long while the rest of us pay for it!”
 
I’m allowed to take breaks during my day and it’s Friday night.  I’m off duty.

 
“I don't get to vote you into or out of office.  Your "job" is to spend my tax dollars.”
 
They are my tax dollars as well.  As I said, I’m just getting a return on my investment..
 
“And adding insult to injury, you then use that money we gave you to target="_blank">"employ" a candidate that promises to give you more of my money.”
 
Really?  I’m a Democrat in a red state.  My candidate lost.  
I actually didn’t do anything for my candidate.  I put his sign in my yard but didn’t donate any money to his candidacy.  
 
“And somehow I'm the bad one for pointing it out? Or that you shouldn't vote?”
 
Your opinion is I shouldn’t vote.  Opinions are like assholes, everyone has one.
 
“LMFAO...grow a pair and handle it like a man.  Politics is no different than war in this nation.”
 
Those are awfully big words that I notice you kept off my thread.  So you can learn a lesson, there’s a good girl.

There we have it, anyone with a position contrary to yours is an asshole and/or has a mental defect.
 
Yes I learned something.
 
I use the small words for your articles and threads, you've shown you can't understand the "big ones" or keep up with the conversation.
 
As for "getting a return on your investment"...that's exactly what the majority of us that have paid for your existence want; an end to your theft of our taxes.
 
Don't worry hon, it will happen...either by our choice or a total collapse of the system because you've destroyed it.
 
I'd  go with the rational "winding down" of your waste and theft,  And the only way we'll get there is by denying you a civil liberty we temporarily granted you.

“Temporarily?”  Um, Gerrilea, there’s nothing temporary about it.

There is no difference between the two "camps" here. You both employ emotional manipulations in place of reasoned arguments and then call each other all sorts of names.
 
You want it both ways, just like all the well "trained" authoritarians our "higher educational system" creates.  I've met you before and I'll wipe your nose in your own shit until you learn not to bite the hand that feeds you.

Gerrilea Added Dec 1, 2018 - 4:24am
Flying J--- What's wrong with me???  We have almost 22 million public employees and I can't vote them in or out of office!  They use said funds to then vote themselves raises under the guise of "statutes" and then they create a system whereby they get more money from and by We The People through SSI, Medicare, Medicaid and public pensions.
 
And I'm the one to be looked down upon?
 
Who's gonna pay the damn bill when it comes due?  As it stands we're at $189 TRILLION.
 
And when the system collapses, those "public employees" wont have jobs, it will be left to us lowlife ingrates to pick up the damn pieces...if they don't declare Martial Law, War or suspend the constitution first.
 
If you can't understand these simple facts, there is nothing I can do for you.

I'm not convinced your response was appropriate.  But I am intrigued as to where the $189 Trillion came from.
 
Maybe there is nothing that you can do for me.


Flying Junior Added Dec 1, 2018 - 4:41am
If you were talking about the national debt...  It very nearly hit $20 Trillion under Obama.  It should hit $22 Trillion by Christmas.  $18.9 Trillion was a long time ago.  This has jack shit to do with the SSA.

But what I do now is simple: I don't comment on certain users' articles anymore on which I think it's pearls before swine anyway. Luckily there aren't many. Most - even the ones who are completely on the contrary side of my opinions say now and then something one can think about and silently nod.

Mogg T--- You wish to install rules here?  Leaving a comment in the thread you don't like does not mean you approve.
 
Life is up, down, left, right and zigzagged. So are people's opinions, beliefs, arguments and very thoughts...as Ryan M has established perfectly. 
 
I allow a conversation to evolve.  It's what makes us human and not pre-programmed robots.  You seriously sound like a pre-k teacher telling children to color within the lines or you'll get a sad face and not a star.
 
PLUEASE.
 
What you are suggesting and doing is how we Americans have been compartmentalized and divided and labeled into nice neat little boxes for our mind, body and soul. Never allowed to understand the whole picture...just pieces of this and that without context or meaning.
 
The only person I delete, repeatedly, is Jeff M.  He has nothing of value to add. Those that argue emotions and not facts, I tried to nudge to the facts.  You can only lead the horse to the water.  
 
Many pretend they want "open discussion" but they just post and expect everyone to agree.  The reason I stopped by here a year ago was because it wasn't an echo chamber and people were allowed to be themselves, in all their ugly name-calling and compassion for others whom have suffered or are suffering.
 
What I've seen more recently is the evolution and crystallization of two camps fighting to be "right".  "My god is more powerful than yours" and you're a __________, fill in the blank. Instantaneous labeling and then the impossible task of having an actual discussion.
 
Or even worse, "I'm not talking about that!"  Or "How dare you even mention that in my presence!"
 
It will pass.  Humans need to fight, it's the only constant in this universe but, they will evolve.
 
Our arguments and debates add to that evolution.
 
While I despise what you say, I'll defend your right to say it....UNLESS you are the aforementioned Jeffrey M.

Mogg - I get deleted, name-called, and slandered on many posts here simply because I despise Trump. I never slander anyone personally simply because they may support him. I only punch back if I am punched.
What I do see here is a ton of hate from those who identify with being on the "Right" towards the other group that they identify as being on the "Left". I rarely see cases of those on the "Left"  demeaning the "Right" as a whole. (other than one individual out here). I am neither a Democrat or a Republican, and have many friends who identify with both "sides".
You started out thrashing me simply because I despise D.T. It's quite obvious, just as you have singled out others who think the same way I do about him.

Mogg T--- So sweet of you believing you have any more authority than to give someone the dreaded "Red X" in one of your articles or extend it to a Metaphor I used that you clearly could not comprehend.
 
I do not need to write a treatise on your position.  I understand perfectly, "Follow my rules or I will ban your comments."  Fair enough, in your articles, you are King. 
 
You missed my whole point moving the conversation forward.  You see, it's not your article and you have no authority to force me into a box....your box.  If I wanted regimented "discussion" that feebly attempts to control the narrative, I'd go back to Daily Kos where I have been a member since 2004.
 
Maybe I need to explain this better and a tad slower so you can understand.  Humanity, for the first time in our history, can argue and debate every topic under the Sun....INSTANTANEOUSLY, with anyone else in the world.  
 
We can, through said process, evolve. 
 
Many find "blogging" as therapy....Hence my thoughts of and for Ryan M, he has a lot to say and needs to get it off his chest.  Have at it!  This does not mean everyone has to read or respond to what he says.  
 
RYAN, yes...YOU are welcome & Merry Christmas.
 
See, How hard was that? Did the world end? Did we run out of electrons powering this thingy called the "interwebs"???
 
Conversations evolve, just as human thought does.  Did my point change, negate or obfuscate your "rules of combat"???
 
NOPE. 
 
If you want to speak to an empty auditorium, sobeit.  Using the same tactics the "Progressive Left" does will not win you elections or supporters and will drive people away from you   As many have pointed out, like FacePalm, the kind and learned gentle soul that understands soo much more than he's ever given credit for here. He too, is part of our humanity, our discussion and our evolution.
 
I'm in awe of his depth of knowledge and the masterful quotes he recalls so quickly. He almost knows as much as me..  :)
 
The best way to find common ground is through debate (hostile if necessary) and discussion.
 
That is my position you missed.

In re: your comment about "you can lead a horse to water."
 
Here's an illustrative story:
 
A young salesman had just lost a big client.  The boss wanted an explanation, so he went into the office and told his tale, concluding with "You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make him drink."
His boss said, "That's where you made your mistake, son!  It's not your JOB to make him drink; it's YOUR job to make him THIRSTY."
 
Hope that helps anyone who reads it.  It's applicable in a wide variety of situations and circumstances.
Gerrilea Added Dec 2, 2018 - 2:14am
Mogg T---  "I ask you because you seem to be one in need of therapy yourself and that would explain your strong feelings about it."
 
I took the time to explain because you missed the point and wanted to ramble on about your "rules of combat" in your articles.  Was my diatribe therapy? Hardly, over-exhaustion and simple mumbling, I get like that when I'm tired.

 
I just took a 7 hr power nap. I'm functional again.  And don't ask me to define functional.  ;)
 
I do understand you want what you want.  Such is the human condition.  Some more than others may wish to meet you on the battlefield, under your terms and conditions.  I'm not giving you anything, especially my permission.  I see it as a fools errand.
 
I personally pay attention to the patterns of thoughts and ideas or "narrative".  What do they inspire in me? I'll join in or not.  Most of the time I don't, I'll scan the article headlines and if the subject has been beaten to death, why waste anymore time?
 
What brought me back to post after months of actually living?  The narrative that HRC was some kind of morally superior individual that must be revered. Total BS.
 
The letter I posted was a catharsis for me.  I wrote that for a
co-worker's daughter taking over a week, two years ago.  That was therapy. 
 
FacePalm-- There you are!  How's everything?  Great points as usual BUT I'd beg to differ. I don't see our discussions as a sales pitch.  Repeating the same thing and expecting different results is the epitome of our "modern social discourse".  PURE INSANITY.
 
It goes like this:
 
HRC was a god!
NO, Trump is gonna save us all!
Wait, that was Obama's job.
 
Global warming is gonna kill us.
NO, global cooling is!
Well, my expert says this, yours is just an industry hack.
 
You're a racist, misogynistic fool!
Well, your Momma dresses you funny and you smell!
 
Wash, rinse and repeat.
 
I have no need to sell facts, I'd like them to be part of and the start of the conversation.  What most of us are arguing over is pure propaganda and "talking points" with very little facts.
 
FacePalm Added Dec 2, 2018 - 6:10am
Gerrilea-
The point of the little story was that if you prefer to win others to your point of view, persuasion is always superior to force.
As to the idea of selling, all of us are always selling, in one way or another, and others are buying(or not).  We change these positions constantly.
If you're one who only buys, you're like one who only inhales; if you're only selling all the time, you're like one who only exhales.
Life is a balance, if you wish to live it well.
 
"A man convinced against his will is of his own opinion still" is the old saw, and i suspect it will always remain true...and i mean this to embrace females too; generally speaking, for me, females are FUN to embrace, but maybe that's just me.

I understand the position I just see conversation a tad differently, not all conversatons mind you, but sharing and fleshing out our thoughts and ideas is more in line with how I view it.
 
Rarely do any of us see any subject the same. Those differences is what I like to explore and share.
 
When it comes to politics, that's just war. Winning is everything to many.  The "D's" lost their moral control over the narrative and they're grasping at straws.
 
The majority have rejected them for it.
 
Maybe through the name calling & anger something better will emerge.

Do it again, Bill.  Ryan needs a smack on the nose.

Bill--- We all have that "crazy Uncle John", don't we?  You say, "Okay, that's nice", never encourage him and he'll go back rambling to himself in his own corner of life.
 
I missed the posting, I rarely read all of what he's posted, I just scroll down to the next reply.
 
Jeff M, he on the other hand, with his "hit-and-run", snide, abusive remarks are a waste of space.

FaceP--- Yes, sadly you are correct.  Alexis de Tocqueville and his "Democracy In America", chapter 15. I quote from him all the time:
 
"Such is not the course adopted by tyranny in democratic republics; there the body is left free, and the soul is enslaved. The master no longer says: "You shall think as I do or you shall die"; but he says: "You are free to think differently from me and to retain your life, your property, and all that you possess; but you are henceforth a stranger among your people. You may retain your civil rights, but they will be useless to you, for you will never be chosen by your fellow citizens if you solicit their votes; and they will affect to scorn you if you ask for their esteem. You will remain among men, but you will be deprived of the rights of mankind. Your fellow creatures will shun you like an impure being; and even those who believe in your innocence will abandon you, lest they should be shunned in their turn. Go in peace! I have given you your life, but it is an existence worse than death."

I warned Ryan not to do any name-calling or slandering on this post, and he just kept at it.
So for him, it's Buh Bye!

Mogg-
The stench of your contempt for those you have considered your inferiors has reached the nostrils of the Most High, and IAW long-established Law, you will reap exactly, precisely, and concomitantly with the seeds you have sown...and more, besides...unless and until you repent, most sincerely, and make amends where possible.
 
Your transparent ploy to attempt to shift the burden of proof of your odious behavior onto me fools no one...much less the God who created all of us...for you deleted it all, didn't you?
 
But trust me; God remembers, and so do those whom you have insulted, demeaned, derided, scorned, devalued, and similarly treated here.
 
"Sic Semper Tyrannus" applies to you, and the comeuppance which is in accord with those words is on it's way...or the Words of Christ are vain, of no effect or power.
