Only an idiot would ask the original poster why they post anything and you asked twice.


And now you have asked 3 times...

As with any topic, you make the decision to comment your positive or negative opinion, lurk and say nothing or just ignore the topic all together.

The topic is about 9/11 families disagreeing with what president Obama is doing with GITMO. What are your thoughts on the subject?


Actually, that's why topics are posted in general, and you're correct. But the question -- at least my question was, why this particular article?

Me, my thoughts on the subject are that this is a group of people who had something tragic happen to them. I am not dismissing nor am I disputing that. But I hardly think that carries any more weight than anyone else's opinions on the matter and wonder why, years later, this group is often brought up as somehow either being experts in suffering or special examples of victimhood.

Why not ask people who lost their grandparents to cancer? I am one of those people. One-quarter, actually -- it was only my maternal grandfather. He had, I think it was pancreatic. That makes me no expert on cancer nor on suffering and God knows it doesn't make me an expert on Guantanamo. And having lost a loved one on 9/11, while undeniably horrible, confers about the same degree of expertise in such matters, I'd say.

Do you believe these people's opinions carry more weight than, say, yours or my own? Does the suffering of my grandfather count less than the suffering of their loved ones? Somewhere in there, this is a calculus of pain that doesn't make sense.

Perhaps I'm rambling -- and this is not a dig at you -- but I do wonder, beyond the obvious binding tragedy, what places their opinions into the automatic newsworthy bucket? What about the families of the victims at Lockerbie, if you want to go at least with people who lost a loved one to terrorism? Do their opinions count more, less, or the same? Or is that perhaps a red herring that's meaningless in this context?

What do you think?

This was not just clever...it was very, very clever.

How can anyone who can come up with this...write some of the nonsense you write, H2O?

@H2O MAN,
Intrepid…credit should be given where credit is due.

Not sure if this H2Oman is a pod-person or what…but his posts in this thread are quality. He’s come up with some of the best one-liners I’ve seen on A2K for a long time; and the crack about “signature line for Black History Month” is a classic.




I’m a counter puncher myself, H2O…I like to see someone who can see an opening and take his shot. You did that in your reply to Jespah…big time.

And the one-liners were gems.

Seems to me I heard Milton Berle use a variation on this line a couple times.

You and I are gonna tangle ass a lot. Although I identify in many ways with what you say in your bio…I see no evidence of that person in your posts at all.

But I always give credit where its due…and right here, it is due to you.

@Frank Apisa,


I have a Bio?





I believe the Milton Berle version is about a kid trying to win a turkey for his momma.

@Frank Apisa,
I'm all for spirited and even barbed debate, but the only thing more ridiculous than you question is your insistence that it should be answered.

There is a rule now that one has to explain one's reasoning for starting a topic.

Tell that to BBB.


He posted it, you get to comment. End of story.
