Please explain your issue more clearly as I fail to understand it...then we can debate it. Is good to have someone here who actually WANTS to debate so welcome back!
PS - you can use insults even...I am impossible to offend !
No you go back and read my original post (you want details - I'll fill them in via PM because I don't want to derail the thread).
Right now? It's time for my beddies and this stinking pile of shit has already cost me too much of my life to lose another night's sleep.
I don't care what your fucking politics are unless you're so far left or right you advocate violence.
The issue is government (any government - this is not an anti-US rant) being more transparent and
You, or any body else want to argue that point, bring it on. As long as you understand I've spent the last 5 years of my goddamn life (most reluctantly) debating the issue.
So please, make it good. After all, my politics are far closer to yours, sego, than Frank's.
So up your game, sego.
But in the meantime, thanks Frank for your measured response. I wish people on my own side of the political fence would be so thoughtful regarding their response. (Note he doesn't agree with me sego - obvously I'm pro-Wkileaks - but he's honest about where he stands. And thank fuckin' christ he doesn't advocate the mindless, indiscriminate murder of people, eh? Or are you too bitter and twisted to acknowledge that?)
You hide behind the "I don't know what you're on about" agenda as long as you like because, yeah, your position is so clear - not.
Let me quote myself again in the hope I'll wake up to an argument that's not only more robust, but more honorable:
The sad truth is, sammi jo, sego and trumpty agree more than they know. But in order to realize that, they all need to recognize that one of the key weapons deployed by governments (of all persuasions) is divide and conquer.
This is not the time to let them achieve this. I've been a member long enough here to know you are ALL better than that. And I would welcome the sort of balanced yet fearless discussion of what is happening here that first made me register all those years ago.
You could start here (don't be put off by the title). It reminds me of what we used to be. All of us.
You know trumpty. I don't agree with virtually a thing you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.
That is what this is all about.
And on a lighter note, I imagine several AI mods' heads are exploding ATM because who exactly am I insulting............
Life is not as simple as it might seem unfortunately.
