What's your point?
And....I was as civil as you.
You used a sarcastic attack to make your Obama hating point. You called it editorializing.
I am merely doing the same.
My first editrorial comment was that to support the man who ignored 9/11 in lieu of a childrens book while decrying another man for continuing a scheduled piece of business despite the fact a shooting had occured (Let's not mention the ludicrous presumption that government should stop anytime a murder is committed)is hypocritical. That's my editorial opinion.
Then, I said that it was distasteful to use something so tragic, that had nothing to do with ANYONES politics, as a way to hammer a politician. That's my editorial opinion.
Then, I stated that it was unreasonable to be %100 partisan. Again, my editorial opinion.
How am I breaking any rules of netiquette, that you, yourself, are not breaking?
In fact, your incessant need to attack every post I make as unnacceptable in some way, would, in itself, be breaking the rules of netiquette. I would ask that you practice what you preach and stop attacking me in the way that you obviously are, and accusing me of doing something other than making appropriate editorial comments.
It seems, zombie, that you are not interested in debating the point, since you refused to actually respond to anything I typed. Rather, you just want to badmouth me. Netiquette indeed.
I think the old saying , If you can't stand the heat, stay out the kitchen, applies here. If you are going to open yourself up by making such blatantly controversial statements (like the one that started this post) you have to be able to take a few controversial remarks in return. I mean, if you can't take any criticism.....then don't start these threads. lol. Pretty simple.
Yeah, I attacked the President. A public figure. I didn't attack you or anyone else in this thread. But you start pointing out that I am partisan and that's the reason I make these statements and that I'm someone that can't be reasoned with because of it. THAT is an attack. I'm singling you out because you are supposed to be a MODERATOR, and following the guidelines and being respectful are what you need to monitor, not the be the cause of breaking. The fact that you can't see that is scary.
So what if I'm partisan? It doesn't make what I said any less untrue. I can take critism, but when you start going after the poster and not the statements themselves, it turns into a flame war and nothing else.
I didn't want to address your Bush slam because it's a ridiculous comparison and once again goes away from the topics. You used it to say "so what it's happened before" and that I'm a hypocrite for not realizing that. That's attack on me, not on the statements I made. Big difference.
Bush was reading to CHILDREN. You want him to get up immediately and say "Excuse me kids, the country is being attack by terrorists!" and run out? No, he did the right thing and didn't want to make a scene. Now, I addressed it, can we move forward?
