This is one of the funniest lines I've seen for awhile...
Quote:It isn't a Conservative-Liberal thing either, because believe me, it hurts Timber to have to agree with Setanta and I on anything. Hurts near the liver.

I call you a troll because you act like one, no other reason.
It's very apparent that you aren't intellectually above anybody. You haven't done squat with reasearch with any reputable source. Maybe moveon or democrat underground.
I had thought that you might be one that coulddebate without the vitriol, I was wrong. In fact, you're the norm here, it seems. there are a few that can actually debate without making it personal, you aren't one of them. From now on I will read your posts with that in mind & not take anything you say seriously.
You thought correctly - I can debate without the vitriol. But I see no reason not to speak my mind as I say fit, when I say fit, even if that opinion happens to be about another poster and their ignorance of such elementary knowledge as, say, the constitution.
You have a habit of making a claim, then being unable to back that claim up with any real knowledge, and then claiming that those who demand you produce said knowledge are attacking you for doing so. Classic troll behavior.
Just on this thread, you've claimed that Senators have acted in an unConstitutional fashion. When asked to explain that, you cannot, and the conversation devolves as you switch from one justification to another in a desperate effort to shore up your position that the Dems are evil for not letting the Republicans get what they want outta government.
In another thread, you showed a real lack of knowledge about what the president's duties are, Constitutionally, and when called on it you don't admit that you were wrong, but change your tack to another argument instead.
On the Socialism thread which you started, it has been shown that Socialism doesn't have anything at all to do with many of the programs that you think it does, and that you are using the term incorrectly; but you don't back down or agree, just keep arguing mendacious points until people get frustrated and start insulting you, at which point you declare yourself morally superior and withdraw from the conversation.
There is a little 'x' in the corner near the name of every poster (thanks to a handy firefox ignore addon that I downloaded) which can be used to ignore everything that person writes. I don't use it on anyone and I don't want to start using it on you; but you need to realize that you aren't making friends and allies around here, at all, with your antagonistic behavior. I find it to be quite constructive and instructive to hear well-formed arguments from the other side; I've probably learned more from GeorgeOb1 and Timberlandko and Thomas than anyone else here, especially in terms of them showing me errors in my thinking....
It isn't a Conservative-Liberal thing either, because believe me, it hurts Timber to have to agree with Setanta and I on anything. Hurts near the liver.
I don't want to discourage you from posting here, but keep in mind that you can have a career here of months, years, decades; the things you say are archived and the relationships you make matter down the road, argumentatively. Many times it is helpful in threads to have those of your same ideological bent construct cases together, and if you don't have them on your side, you can find yourself swamped quite easily.
Sorry for calling you a troll. Don't act in a poor fashion and I will be happy to call you a friend.

My guess is you enjoy attention, even if mostly negative, or that you enjoy feeling as if you're yanking people's chains. In any case, congratulations for generating and receiving more flame posts in a shorter time than I've seen in my years here. You must be one world class assh*le.
I see you don't miss much here, how is that? while on duty?
You don't know a damn thing about me, you're nearly as clueless as a few others here, a herd mentality.
BTW-post ths on that other thraed since you're so proud of your handi work
Not so much for wally draggle LSM, but for anyone else who's curious...
I PCS'ed (permanent change of station) from Ft Sam Houston on 29 November. I have until 11 December to report to Baynes-Jones Hospital Pharmacy(at Ft Polk) for duty. The last week has been a frazzle of moving and trying to orient to the boondocks of Leesville, LA. One of the first things I did was get my cable and internet connections up and running - I'm spoiled that way...
(and didn't want to miss any of the drama hereabouts )
John Bolton is a card carrying member of NAMBLA.

Yes of course, Bush prefers 8 yr old boys sith red hair, he's never denied it.
"Reforming the UN, Bush-style"
Mr Bolton went to the UN with the goal of leading the reform of the organisation, but the effort has stalled in the face of opposition from developing countries, organised at the UN in a "Group of 77". Mr Bolton has been blamed by diplomats and analysts for making little effort to bridge the divide between the "G77" and the industrialised nations pursuing reform.
The New York Times reported an incident in June in which the US ambassador burst into a UN committee meeting, produced a cordless microphone and began to lecture envoys from developing countries about their efforts to water down reforms aimed at strengthening management of the UN.
According to the account, the committee chairman ordered Mr Bolton to end his tirade. The American diplomat then threw up his hands in frustration, saying "so much for trying something different".
Other supporters of UN reform claimed the unorthodox intervention undermined their cause, and a few weeks later the general assembly voted to lift a budget cap which had been intended to force management reforms.
"He took an agenda from the White House and the state department that they wanted real UN reform. That has been bungled in the confrontation with the G77," said Barbara Crossette, an analyst at the United Nations Association.
"The [UN] secretariat hold him responsible for the fissure. Bolton's idea is to go in and say this is what we want, and when people don't immediately agree, he says the UN is unreformable."
The American diplomat
Last month, the American people went to the polls .. and DEMANDED conservative government! And unfortunately in the process, the GOP lost its majority and a few good men like Rick Santorum, Jim Talent and George Allen.
"The US once had the capability to engineer the clandestine overthrow of governments. I wish we could get it back."
The fact that intelligence about Iran's nuclear activity was partial should not be used as an excuse not to act, Mr Bolton insisted.
"Intelligence can be wrong in more than one direction." He asked how the British government would respond if terrorists exploded a nuclear device at home. "'It's only Manchester?' ... Responding after they're used is unacceptable."
Remember John Bolton, anyone?
