Again, politics and political banter is not for wimps. I agree things get heated and feel personal at times, but this an internet board and very few here, especially those that wind up bickering a bit, actually know each other well enough to judge emotion via text.
As far as this being a debate, it can't be when the one side just repeats the same crap over and over and over. It makes the entire effort to actually talk about this and gain some new insight a waste of time. That you don't critique, but someone pointing it out, you do? And then say it's personalized hate?
This is Hot Topics, which is know to be a bit heated at times. Hence the word HOT in the title of the area. I have seen some disagreements in the book threads about interpretations or what have you, but never arguments or bickering like here. Perhaps that is more your thing.
Again, I don't hate anyone. I will buy anyone here a beer and a burrito and happily talk of mirth and days of summer. We do all share a love of the genius of SK, after all. That is of course until he expresses an anti-conservative opinion. Then to some he is suddenly an idiot. Which makes perfect sense.
dang, jims...but that was actually kinda funny...
ummm...there are other worlds than this.
yes............and you've visited them all...haven't you, oobs
Nobody is saying that there wasn't some pretty nasty anti-Bush stuff going around. But it was not approved by the majority of those of the left or by the Party itself, unlike all of the anti-Obama rubbish. Here you have leaders of the opposition party saying terrible things, trying to ruin the country's economy, spreading rumors and disinformation about policy.... it's never-ending and it's pervasive. There simply is no comparison.
The treasure of a life is a measure of love and respect/The way you live, the gifts that you give/In the fullness of time/It's the only return that you expect
