I've often found that the people who make sport of Christians and their beliefs and think it's hilarious to mock them, *only* do so with Christians. They never mock Muslims in the same way, for example.
Nah, not me. I mock them all. Anyone who believes in fairy tales is worthy of ridicule, in my opinion.
Yes, it ACTUALLY is. (Kinda like the difference between LITERALLY and FIGURATIVELY.
Just because the fraudster doesn't directly beat the victim or kill them doesn't make it that way.
Yes, it ACTUALLY does. Perhaps you need to look up the definitions of actually (In fact; in reality) and pacifism (opposition to war or violence as a resort in the settlement of disputes) source
What happens when the victim was bilked out of the life savings and loses their house? What about when they can't afford food because they lost all their retirement savings? Victims can easily end up dying cold, alone and homeless because of that "pacifistic" fraud.
So? Just because you feel bad for the lady (and I do too) doesn't mean you get to change the DEFINITION OF WORDS. What's next? Are you gonna call him a terrorist?
Every action has an equal and opposite reaction,
I'll help you out here since you seem to have a problem with words. That's called karma
if you scam someone out of money, they no longer have it, and they will suffer in proportion to their loss. I don't care how bad the poverty is there. Putting someone else into poverty to get yourself out of it is not acceptable behavior anywhere in the world.
I agree. But that still doesn't mean you get to change the DEFINITION OF WORDS.
Re: Re: Re: seems like yet another false claim by TD
Watergate was way fast, when the information came out (was published) it was VERY quick.
No, not actually. "The affair began with the arrest of five men for breaking and entering into the Democratic National Committee (DNC) headquarters at the Watergate complex on June 17, 1972." "The scandal eventually led to the resignation of Republican Richard Nixon, the President of the United States, on August 9, 1974." source Also worth noting: Nixon resigned to avoid impeachment. Had he not the whole affair would have gone on MUCH longer.
Re-learn your history.
Clearly you're in no position to say that to anyone
Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: You kids are fighting the battles Hollywood wants you to!
I agree with you 100%, which is why I've taken to reporting everyone who responds to the village idiot. Wanna join in? If there were just a few people who would start doing that I'm confident it wouldn't take long til the responses stopped, at which point ootb would stop getting the "attention" he craves and maybe, just maybe, shut the fuck up.
Re: Re: Answer to question: WHENEVER POSSIBLE, The Rich and Gov't are totally amoral at best, with anti-moral the goal!
Here's the problem: the reason you're making nothing from it right now is that you've got nothing that anyone wants to buy. Remember when you tried to get Mike to hire you to write for TD? How we laughed!
I must have missed that. Got a link(s)? I could use a good laugh at ootb's expense.
Re: Re: Re: Re: With all the shitty comment and channel changes...
Then we should be ashamed of ourselves.
No, not really. That was my first "instinct" as well, but in my (and apparently a LOT of other people's as well) opinion he has done more than enough to earn it.
And you know who's the only person who could fix it? OOTB. IF he were to begin a string of posting even somewhat reasonable comments without condescension, ad-hom attacks, and general lunacy then I, for one, would back off the reporting. And I'm sure that I'm far from the only one.
Until that day comes (and I'm not holding my breath) I'll be damned if I feel any shame for reporting a shithead whose only purpose here is to disrupt and draw attention to himself.
