Like I said, you may accuse me of being deranged, but you're the first person on here I've reacted to this way. You are SPECIAL baby.

Is the problem really you? Seriously. I think it is.

Maybe a little longer.

There might be a few other posters who misconstrue things. But there's no reason one has to put up with post and spin when they don't even have it right. They can't read your mind.

I don't care if a poster says the "the sun comes up" It's not your job to tell everyone what he or she is saying. You don't speak for them. You don't speak for me.

You can question it. You can find the facts wrong. But don't be perpetrating your opinion what it actually means when you don't fucking know.

And then get on a fucking high horse on top of that.

I will apologize to the Wizard if I need to for any disruption.

But not about anything else.

FOR THE RECORD: TO THE WIZARD

First off do you consider the accusation of “sinister motives” a personal attack. If a newspaper published in an article about you that exact qualification would it be an attack on you or your words. If anywhere in there it said “The Wizard of Odds, Michael Shackelford has sinister motives.”

FOR THE RECORD CONT. (where people have read my post and responded to parts of it which they quoted)

AzDuffman on my post

{ME)Although it's sad that a Republican is likely going to benefit from essentially the same conditions as a Republican president left us with.

DUFFMAN
The economy is supposed to improve, not stay in a bad state. Unemployment is 4% or more higher than when Bush left. Deficits are 150% higher. Obama has responded by suing companies that are creating jobs. What is sad is how many people like him for reading a teleprompter. He has not imporved anything and actually made most things worst. This happens when you get elected with no experience or qualifications.

Pacomartin on my same post

{ME)The economy is bad news for Obama. Despite all the bitching and complaining about him, I don't think Obama's poll numbers have been hurt enough on any other issue that would have affected a reelection bid.

PACOMARTIN
I am actually very fond of Obama. However, the term "any other issue" is a little misleading. There basically is one big issue, and a lot of incidental issues.

The last Budget that President Bush signed predicted a deficit of -$274 billion for the fiscal years 2009 - 2012 . The last budget that President Obama signed predicted a deficit of -$5,453 billion for the same four fiscal year 2009-2012. That's a multiplier of 20 .

I think that says a lot more about the complete unreliability of budget predictions, but in any event only the hardcore faithful will still be blaming GW Bush for all of our fiscal problems in 2012. President Obama has been president for 2 years, 8 months.




7OUTLINEAWAY responded to part of the same post this way.

{ME)Unless things are even worse than I think they are, Jimmy Carter could get credit in the next four years for improvement in the economy if he was reelected.

7OUTLINEAWAY
Carter would be a Republican nowadays, or at the very least to the right of Obama. He deregulated several industries, was against nationalizing healthcare, and was arguably further to the right on policy towards the Middle East.

I'm beginnng to think the best-case scenario is that Obama wins, but R's keep the House and win the Senate (highly likely, even though no one is talking about it) and Obamacare is declared unconstitutional. The US is generally the most prosperous when government is divided -- Reagan never had the House, and Clinton didn't have Congress from 1995-2000. Gridlock is a GOOD thing. Major legislation gets passed only if a significant faction of the minority party (and thus, the American people) goes along.




No one accused me of sinister motives until Itscalled soccer.
UNFORTUNATELY THE ORIGINAL POST WHERE I CALLED OUT ITSCALLEDSOCCER ON A PERSONAL ATTACK HAS BEEN REMOVED.

THERE IS A MORE TEPID RESPONSE LEFT IN THE THREAD FROM SOCCER IF IT’S NOT DELETED ALSO, IN THE ORIGINAL ONE HE USES THE TERM “WISHES” AS IF I SAID I WISHES FOR ECONOMIC FAILURE. YOU’LL SEE BELOW IN MY QUOTE THAT SERVERLY MALIGNS THE MEANING AS WELL.

I ASK THE WIZARD (if he’s bored enough to bother) TO READ MY ORIGINAL POST BELOW AND IF SOMEONE ACCUSED HIM OF
HAVING A SINISTER MOTIVE WOULD HE CONSIDER IT A PERSONAL ATTACK.

HERE IS MY QUOTE

I saw there was some back and forth between the two of you, but as I have the other one blocked, I didn't follow it. I can't say I'm surprised, though. It's difficult and frustrating to deal with someone who's so aggressively passive-aggressive.

As I said, I didn't follow it, but I can guess he 1) misconstrued your position, clumsily trying to make it look like its exact opposite, 2) exaggerated what you did say and 3) quoted himself to prove you wrong.

What can you expect from someone like that? Certainly not a rational conversation.

Just block him and be done.

Although I've not used the blocking feature, it is looking more attractive lately.

What happened to these not showing up in the "Recent Threads" page?
