Oh, What do we have here? The Shine is Coming Off

Races for the Senate, U.S. House, etc. and other issues of national importance.

Hilarious. I'm not the one who assigned a higher purpose to this exercise, am I?

I normally ignore these fools, but you need to call them out once in awhile.

My unwillingness to play your game is the result of years of you ignoring my factual refutations of your garbage. So tough shit if you have a problem with that.

But don't think for one moment that I wish to silence you. I want you to continue to demonstrate your typical Republican hatred for minorities. Sing your racism loud. Sing your racism proud!

I responded because when someone invokes a racial slur, particularly one that some may not immediately identify as such, that person should be called out


This makes a difference how? You're not a savior. The obstructionist's creed... Madison's self identified victims know it well.

Note to "Racist Meat": No one cares except prescribed victim groups and the media that surrounds them.

No. Nice try though.

I know weakness is in my presence when it needs to scratch for help and draw it into personal battles.

I have no idea what that's supposed to mean.

Why do you even bother to respond to idiots such as I?

Jesus, all I did was suggest that the title of this thread rubbed me the wrong way. You don't see it that way. You could have left it at that, but you decided to call me foolish. Masterfully played.

Maybe you're right that posting here is a waste of time. Just let it be known that I'm not one of the ones who showed up here just to dish dirt and call people names. If my "higher purpose" (whatever the hell that is) offends your delicate sensibilities I'll take it elsewhere.

To what weakness are you referring? Who's scratching for help? How is my question drawing it into a personal battle?

So are the repetitive and lack luster responses to the history. Misery loves company; without it "Isthmus Publishing Inc." would go out of business***.

Is there a lot of self hate in gay circles? It seems that way. Its to bad a large part of the major media in this town surrounds itself around this worrisome/self-hate epidemic. Sad actually.

How can "we" be victims without people like Ned? Count me out, I'm not a part of "Isthmus's" "we."

***Racism ISN'T as prevalent as Madison's liberal establishment would have their followers believe. That's why "The Capitol Times" is going out of business. The market for worry and self hate propaganda services is shrinking... Times are getting better (Barak Obama's presence is die hard proof).

6. Obama's relationsip with and recent endorsement by Louis Farrakhan.
7. Obama's refusal to wear the U.S. flag lapel pin.
8. Obama's far left plans for socialized medicine and a UN-linked "global povery" bill (Global Poverty Act of 2007 (S.2433) among other horrors.
9. Obama's lack of management or foreign-relations experience.


1. I don't care

4. Everyone's got that
5. Fine by me
6. Good for him
7. I wouldn't either
8. Good
9. I don't care[/quote

So, basically what we have here is a campaign where his supporters don't know what he is saying, or whom he stands for, other than it sounds good.

Nope. What I'm saying are these three things:

1. That I don't care about some of the above mentioned things.
2. That I dare you to find a presidential candidate who doesn't have 9 listable "things" in their past or present that nearly half of the country finds questionable.
3. That I'm ok with a "radical upbringing" and a relationship with a communist and an endorsement from Farrakhan.

But that's just me talkin'. The rest of Obama's supporters can make up their own minds. I would caution you from lumping them all in with me.

I'm almost getting tired of typing the following truism.

This is classic lefty rhetoric in the face of alleged facts.

Here is a story documenting a claim about your new Messiah, B. Hussein O.

Instead of reflecting on what the story means, you all try to bury it in a flurry of racist comments.

Lefty playbook - "When facts are presented shout, "Racism""

You and the rest of the lefties can cry racism until you turn blue (more racism), it still isn't going to make me a racist.

If someone can provide context for how "Shine" is racist, I'm interested to see it.
