I'll be crystal clear here with DU's "Liberals"

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by bluesbassman (a host of the General Discussion forum).

If you agree with Rand Paul on any issue, we know you are a disruptor.

If you disagree with Hillary on any issue, we know you are a disruptor.

We know these things. You are trapped like the rats we know you are. And Clapper knows who you are and where your kids go to school.

Now that the 2016 Presidential nominees are decided, I hope the Admins will enforce the Nothing Harmful to Democratic Candidates During Election Season rule.

Regards,

Third-Way Manny

1. I do not 'agree with Rand Paul' on any issue apart from things like 'air is worth breathing'.

Rand Paul might APPEAR to agree with me on various things, but no doubt for some truly stupid reason on his part, like 'Aqua Buddha told him to'.

On the other hand, I do disagree with Hillary on several issues, so I guess I'm a 'known disruptor'.

3. The "fringe progressive's lament"

"I'm not allowed to run the train,
the whistle I can't blow.
I'm not allowed to say how far
the railroad cars can go.
I'm not allowed to shoot off steam
or even ring the bell.
But let it jump the stupid tracks,
and see who catches hell. "

16. The quote seems to have two claims and an assumption.

Claim one: water is not a right. I agree with this since there are no such thing as rights.

Claim two: giving water to others is servitude. This seems like nonsense to me.

Assumption: giving people water free of charge is bad. I completely disagree with this. I want everyone to have access to clean water, regardless of their ability to pay.

19. Man, who'd a thought that Capt. Kirk computer logic could work on some people.

Now perfect DU'er, listen carefully. Rand Paul says, and this is a direct quote: "Lewis Carroll is fiction, right?" Straight from the devils f'ing mouth: http://www.paul.senate.gov/?p=press_release&id=727

Illogical, illogical, does not computer. Rand Paul says NOTHING that should be agreed with. Everything Rand Paul says is bad. But Rand Paul asserts Lewis Carroll is fiction. Therefore Lewis Carrol must be nonfiction. But you find the book on the fiction shelves in libraries. This does not compute. Snarks and Boojums must be real because Rand Paul says they are fiction. Does not compute.....*Kaboosh*...a spray of red blood from a burst forehead vein coats the walls.

Why are the third wayers so idiotic about the purity thang? The guy is a piece of dog excrement but he will get something correct from time to time. I might even agree with him on an issue. That is life. Anyone who has to try to torture logic and language to try to pretend that one particular person by definition HAS to be wrong 100% of the time is purely delusional. Anyone who supresses their own convictions just to come down on the opposite side of every issue is morally cringeworthy.

Let me be very plain because some people are just not subtle enough: This guy would make a shitty president. Would not support in any way.

It's just as bad as dittoheads. Man I miss this place from when I started back in the day -- critical thinking actually used to be pretty common.

22. Critical thinking skills are in much demand, so are reading comprehension skills.

 

Pointing out that someone is an idiot, by their own words is pretty common and not screed worthy imo.

15. K&R Really, any discussion of issues at all

merely risks putting people in a "critical" or "analytical" frame of mind, when what we really need is for them to be enthusiastic voters.

In that spirit, I propose that we shift the purpose of the board to submission of musical and dramatic tributes to Hillary Clinton for the remainder of the election season.

27. today's Front Page:

"Dedicated to the influx of Rand Paul supporters on DU"
"When did people start buying Rand Paul's insipid facade of credibility?"
"Make no mistake--- The Ron and Rand Paul trolls are the best on the internet. ... The onslaught is soon to come and may already be happening."

the last time they were so coordinate was in '06 when they all at once said now was not the time for a purge now that we have the House (then Cegelis, Lamont, McKinney, Halter, Romanoff, Sestak, Grayson, Kucinich all went bye-bye)

they think the left is all a cat's-paw for Republican victory


and that Dems pushing GOP policies (or saying they don't go far enough) and dragging everything further right is the only thing that prove you truly love liberalism

39. So, it's not allowed to CHALLENGE Hillary?

 

I do NOT agree with Hillary on MANY issues and i will NOT be silenced
in my opposition to her ambitions.

You will not silence me in my opposition to this corporatist millionaire.

IF, she becomes the nominee, i will hold my nose and support her,
but until then i and many others will shed light on all her actions and policies that
we believe makes her a bad choice.

The only choice is to vote Democratic, but that does not mean that we
roll over and lick the boots of the establishment.

Have a nice day !
