What is really getting my goat on TDPF is how a white perspective is presupposed, and thus responded to in the manner, even when it's not intended that way. It's putting the burdon of proof on the poster, when it's the actual interpretation that's the problem. Think about it.

Thank you C2CG, you're a breath of fresh air.

Don't mind Meade, he'll realize you're not the enemy eventually. You're what he's been searching for I think - a liberal with a brain!

As you wish. When union employees without seniority get laid off - you get to own that pain.

Congrats by the way - you made the big time

Hehe... thanks, you made my day. I stand by the assertion. We're talking about a guy who asserts that Hitler was a socialist (and by inference, a liberal). We aren't talking about someone who's a little uneducated, we're talking about a downright ignorant moron.

What is a "non-white perspective?" What are the criteria for determining whether a perspective is non-white or not? Is it an either/or thing, or is there a continuum of non-whiteness? If someone who is deemed non-white in the real world posts something on this board, does that automatically represent a non-white perspective regardless of the content? What if the same post comes from someone whose real-world status (white or non-white) is unknown?

And who gets to decide all this?

Top notch Detritus, top notch.

I'll give you answers as soon as I figure out the white on the left side perspective.

bdog wrote:It's an odd situation. We don't know what non-white voters were thinking. Since it's an open primary State there was nothing to prevent them from going to the polls (besides the usual logistics), and there were reasons they should have voted.

Did they not understand the process? Were they afraid? Were they encouraged not to go? Were they intimidated not to go? Was it a flash boycott?


- First off I did not repeatedly suggest they did not understand the process. I only asked it as a question this one time. You pulled "repeatedly suggested" straight out of your ass.

- It was lumped in with a series of other QUESTIONS, not suggestions. Or do you think I was suggesting they were also afraid, encouraged not to go, intimidated and boycotting ALL at the same time?

- People on this forum didn't understand the process (had to ask if it was an open primary State)! WTF? It's an honest question!

And you are questioning my intelligence?

Go back to your shitty karaoke son. I hope you get more words right.


Like hell it's an honest question.

By framing it that way,y ou're suggesting that those are the range of options as to the answer. That the answer is, obviously, that 'they' understand that the modern G.O.P. has nothing to offer them, is the question you never asked - either intentionally, because you're trying to occlude the nakedly obvious, or unintentionally, because you really are that fucking dumb.

Once again, it's the racism, stupid. So, yes - I am questioning your intelligence, as well as pointing out your intellectual bad faith. Sorry you're getting so butthurt about it, but if you don't want to be called out as a disingenuous asshole, don't be a disingenuous asshole.

And as far as going back to my 'shitty karaoke' - like the time I rocked out an announced crowd of 4,500 people at a Mallard's game? And had them screaming for more? I think I will, thanks.

bdog = spectacular ad hominem fail.

I had to break this up into 2 responses because you're such a FUCKING IDIOT.

I assume you pulled the above rant straight out of your ass too. How the hell do you relate that to anything I posted?

If anything my point is that whites should not be the ONLY ones commenting on the racial politics of our nation, or closer to home - Madison Prep!!!

How many stupid pills did you take today? The whole damn bottle.


Oh, please.

You were getting your ass handed to you on a plate, so you started this thread so you could snivel on about how the notion that there are no 'blacks' on the Daily Page means that omigodliberalsaretherealracistsskree.

And you got busted on it. Own your fail, you miserable twit.

Nice non-response.

It's interesting how I say "non-white" and it comes out of your mouth as "black".

Own your racism fat boy.

Back to fairy tales (I’m such an idealist). I’d rather be the scarecrow in The Wizard of Oz than any princess or image of beauty that is waiting for her knight in shining armor to rescue her and take care of her for the rest of her life. Look up the scarecrow before you judge me. Don’t get me wrong, I like romance as much as the next person. Visiting the city of love is on my bucket list!

I’ll admit I don’t have a lot of degrees after my name. Would I like to go to grad school? Yes, but do I even know what for? No. But I do know that a lot of intelligent people lack common sense and perspective. Am I guilty myself sometimes? Sure, but I’m working on it, and I’m willing to see it. Call me out on it anytime, please; but not with any presupposed inferences about me, especially ones that are not there or intended. And I’ll try to do that for you.

I like to think critically and abstractly, about many things, including my own ideas. What insecurities do I have that I’m defending by not seeing the bigger picture? How am I losing (or what am I missing out on) by holding on to those stereotypes? What inferences am I putting on the speaker that may or may not be there, whether it’s Obama, Gingrich, or my neighbor?

What are my prejudices? I’m against big corporations and the foothold they have on our society. Why? Because as a small business person I got burned. About one third of my yearly earnings were wiped out due to a corporate takeover.

I’m also biased against the GOP because I don’t think their policies have the best interest of the country in mind. I think their back pockets do. That’s not to say I don’t take a critical eye to the Democratic Party for their financial interests, but I think overall the democrats do have the best interest of the country in mind. But that’s how I see it. There are things about the right I do respect, such as their focus on the individual. But should the interpretation of those individual rights trump the good of the people as a whole?
I guess it depends on who is doing the interpreting of those fundamental rights.

Perspective is everything. So call me out when I make a gaffe, please. I choose to learn from my mistakes. I probably won't stop treadjacking though. :)

Again - ad hominem is all you got?

Might as well roll over and bare your throat - I've owned you, punk. You know it, I know it - the whole Daily Page knows it.

Why don't you just unsubscribe now? It's not like you have any credibility left to salvage.
