Bacon and acknowledgement

I see much cutting and pasting on this site. Since nobody is being paid, I do not see a lack of attribution as any great sin. Obviously you do, but let's examine this quiz for what it is--a highlighting of bad behavior by democrats. You greedily grasp bad behavior in republican circles, but disavow knowledge of any impropriety on your side. No great surprise by any means, but it makes you as much of a shameless shill as you claim Kawfi and others to be. You are a long way from Guyana. The Kool Aid kills on both sides of the political aisle, yet you continue to enjoy passing out the cups.

Acknowledge of the underlying issue

Poor debating etiquette 101: When one does not have a counterpoint to offer, merely point out a tangential flaw so as to not have to answer the criticism.

It does work well for you at times. But in a debate, when you refuse to acknowledge a point that is made--it doesn't make your points any more salient. It is great sport to watch you and Kawfi bluster so, but do not delude yourself into thinking that you are any better than what he puts out. Somewhat tiresome and I post less as a result. The cacophony is too much.

I've been debating the "false equivalency" hoo-ha here for going on three days now.

To summarize: I categorically reject your premise that "both sides do it" as a logical fallacy. Many posters here have trotted out that canard to explain away incendiary rhetoric by the right.

Military and/or violent metaphors have been a staple of elections for some time now in America, heck, even "campaign" has its origins in military terminology.

But it is NOT Democrats who've been showing up at congressional townhall meetings armed to the teeth.

It is NOT Democrats muttering vague threats about 'second amendment remedies' and 'we came unarmed...this time".

When you suggest "second amendment remedies" to “correct” the acts of a lawfully elected Congress and lawfully elected president, that's a whole different ball of wax: that's treason.

THAT is the big difference between the two parties.

Feel free to disagree.

Conservative strategery: 2nd Amendment! 2nd Amendment! 2nd Amendment! (tragedy strikes) 1st Amendment!

Your myopic view

serves you well. Although nobody should threaten a sitting president, how many ideologues threatened the previous Republican president? Do you call it treason only when it fits your mood or ideology? Do you think that the right is the only dangerous ideology or has fringe elements that preach insurrection? Are you blind to the militant left? Or do you just conveniently look the other way? Your line of thinking only perpetuates the problem.

then vs. now

You're reaching.

Jesse Jackson calling NYC "hymietown' isn't a call for insurrection.

"Second Amendment remedies' is.

Byrd's "serve with a Negro" comment dates back 70+ years ago.

"We came unarmed...this time" is less than two years old.

Your comment about the "militant left" is laughable. The weathermen are gone. The SDS is gone. The Baader-Meinhoff gang is gone. The closest thing to a militant left in this country is Code Pink and they are little more than glorified media attention whores.

Wedge, you can be of the opinion that my thinking serves to perpetuate the problem. I look at things in a different way: it's people like you, well-meaning but misguided, who excuse the violence and incendiary rhetoric of the right under the catch-all "the other side does it toooooo"...people like you are encouraging and embiggening the extreme elements of the right.

Not sure what 'La Raza' is, wasn't it a WCW tag team a while back? And the Black Panthers haven't been relevant since they became a Marvel comic book character back in the 1970s....

Two Negro bucks put on retro berets and exercise their God-given Second Amendment rights and show up armed outside a single polling station in Pennsylvania...and two thirds of God-fearing White Americans over 65 crap their collective pants because Fox News commanded them to do so.

Who doesn't recall the carnage that ensued?

Those guys singlehandedly revived the "Black Panther" brand and now every high school and college campus in our nation has a branch. Right?

We live in skeery times.

D'ya think it's time to amend the Second Amendment to include those three important words 'except for Negroes'?

Do your research. The building was public; the electorate in that area is basically 'black'. This issue has been dealt with in the courts. These men have been dealt with. Don't you people have enough current issues to discuss without having to bring up this stuff AGAIN? SO THIS IS WHAT WEDGE IS TALKING ABOUT. - the Panthers as extremists. Yes Wedge - they are part of the extremists that are dividing this country - but they are not filling up a large venue or having a 'march' to express their views. Americans of all ideologies are using civil and non-violent avenues for addressing their concerns. This is the American way. Others - instead of looking for the common threads that bind us together - are seeking to (and becoming pretty adept) at dividing us. I'm sure you're not one of the divisionists.

To instill fear. The same thing that AK 47 rifles were used for at some Tea Party gatherings. There are Americans who are fearful of 'black' people and Americans who are fearful of 'white' people. I don't think we need to go into the reasons for this fear of those who are different in this country - our history has established this fact. Our 'present' and our youth are showing us that this does not have to be! Observerofu and Wedge - sorry for your misunderstanding that I only see the 'white' /'right' extremists. You're wrong. Actually - words identify extremists better than 'appearance'.

My gosh DM - Take your meds - the dimentia is kicking in again.

You state that most "thinking" Americans are mourning and giving political correctness a rest, then turn around and "pull my coattails", "needle" me and then you turn around and call me disgusting and sick?????

And you are calling me "sick"? Try looking in the mirror if you want to see disgusting and sick, DM. Look- if it upsets you so much, just stop "reading my stuff" like you said you were. The quiz obviously struck a nerve with you.

Healing instead of blaming

This was not a ceremony only for those that were in mourning - but to rejoice for those that are survivors. The funerals for those who lost their lives begin today.
Obama stunned the assembled crowd by revealing that Congresswoman Giffords had opened her eyes for the first time since the attack right after the president and his wife visited her in her hospital room. Giffords’s husband, space shuttle commander Capt. Mark Kelly, sat next to Michelle Obama in the front row. There was spontaneous applause not only in the venue - but also throughout the world.

Quote:

“At a time when our discourse has become so sharply polarized – at a time when we are far too eager to lay the blame for all that ails the world at the feet of those who happen to think differently than we do – it’s important for us to pause for a moment and make sure that we are talking with each other in a way that heals, not a way that wounds.

Quote:

“Rather than pointing fingers or assigning blame,” “let us use this occasion to expand our moral imaginations, to listen to each other more carefully, to sharpen our instincts for empathy, and remind ourselves of all the ways that our hopes and dreams are bound together.”

Obama spoke movingly of all those killed in the attack.
Obama sought to use the death of the youngest victim as a source of inspiration.

Quote:

“She had been elected to her student council; she saw public service as something exciting and hopeful,” he said. “She was off to meet her congresswoman, someone she was sure was good and important and might be a role model. She saw all this through the eyes of a child, undimmed by the cynicism or vitriol that we adults all too often just take for granted.”
“I want to live up to her expectations,”

This was also greeted with applause of agreement.
Sorry some did not hear what the rest of the world heard.

The cheers came when President Obama announced to the mourners that Rep. Gifford had opened her eyes for the first time since the shooting that morning.

Of course, that's viewed as a negative by hyper-partisan jackwagons such as yourself.

Didn't one of her Physicians say on Sunday "She can open her eyes."?? If one tried REAL hard, one might conclude that POTUS was close to insinuating that "I visited. She opened her eyes" Say what? Regardless, her survival & recovery to this point is something seldom seen in such tragedies.

I didn't see that in the media.

This is from the LA Times:

Quote:

Lemole said he was there when Giffords first opened her eyes Wednesday evening in the presence of family members and some of her colleagues from Congress. "It was probably a combination of the unexpected but familiar that prompted her to open her eyes and caused her to look around. That implies that the part of the brain that let lets us awake from sleeping, the arousal center," is functioning.

The point is, as you say, seldom seen in such tragedies - and reason to rejoice.

Miracles selectively!

There are today and yesterday many comments here about cancer being in many families. I'm not sure that I know any family who hasn't had at least one victim. Most eventually get better, at least for a period of time.
There are two things that I find difficult to understand about such things as this:

Miracles; and miracles NOT happening for similar circumstances, and proof of miracles.

Miracles being as done by God or supernaturally.

I realize we do use the word miracle for common things also such as "by a miracle they won the ball game." Certainly weakens God's work to do that.

Why are a few cured with a miracle and most not? I expect prayer was used in most cases.

Why are many of the miracle cures only partial cures? Is it a certainty that anyone shot through the brain will die, except by miracle?
Not likely, many do live--some handicapped, some not.

A recent Catholic Pope, now dead, is in the cue to be made a Saint. He didn't cause a miracle to cure a brain defect, but someone said they prayed to the Pope and the person was cured of an incurable disease.
I see this as publicity to attract more members as earthlings do not decide who are Saints.

Those who pray for a miracle, as defined by the Bible dictionary, do so because it has apparently "worked" before, and is a part of "Faith."

Certainly President Obama nor Dr. Rhee, nor the operating surgeons had much to do with creating a miracle. The facts are the congresswoman will be fortunate to ultimately survive and I think what I think will have nothing to do with the final outcome.

It all depends upon what that bullet hit or didn't hit and whether she is treated as well as she can be.

We are here a very short time anyway, as the Bible says, and prolonging this life with miracles isn't likely to exist. If it did, why are 99% not provided the cure.

Obama's speech

You're right.....Obama's speech was great last night...and the crowd of over 32,000 (17,000 inside the auditorium and 15,000 overflow watching from the football stadium shows Obama's popularity with young voters.

With the economy starting to turn around, and the 2 wars being brought to an end, Obama's approval ratings which are already starting to rise will continue to rise and there is a good chance that in 2 years he can be re-elected UNLESS the Republicans and/or Conservatives can find a 1/2 way intelligent candidate to run against him. Clinton was in a similar place 2 years after his first term and he got re-elected!

Palin is turning into a joke with her continued inappropriate comments including last night's BLOOD-LIBEL statement and Huckabee does not stand a chance. Whose left..Herman Cain, Donald Trump, Mit Romney....???

The Republican Party needs to get organized and find a real challenger pretty soon! And it needs to be someone who can pull in young and minority voters because you can't win with only the white middle/upper class!!!

You have no way of telling who was at that gathering last night, young or whatever. Your statement about "young voters" is totally without evidence. The possibility that much of the crowd was U. of Arizona students surely increases the chance that they were "young", depending on your definition but has no correlation to "support" at all. Presence at an event does not translate to votes in the booth.

I'm sure you have reviewed the stats from the political analysts as to where Obama pulled his votes in the 2008 election. That is public knowledge. Also remember U of Arizona students can vote as do other university students.

As for his re-election, we will just have to see!

She remains in critical condition in the ICU at University Medical Center, where four other patients injured in the Jan. 8 shooting remain in fair condition.

Giffords opened her eyes on Wednesday for the first time since being shot on Saturday.  Only one other news outlet reported. that Giffords could open her eyes prior to the Sunday press conference, as opposed to dozens that said she was not yet able to open her eyes.  After conferring with my colleagues, I decided to take the post down pending further investigation.

Wedge / extremists

Extremists, regardless of whether they are on the right or left are destructive to our country. What is being sought after this terrible tragedy is for persons who disagree to disagree with civility. It is time for us to listen to one another - rather than always looking for areas where we can denigrate one another. If this is not the message that you have received from me - I'm sorry. But this is my message. Our enemies want to divide us - and the extremists (right and left) are doing a great job of dividing our country.
