Crisis won’t be the last

October 27, 2013

Robert Wolf, Minot It’s nice to see this latest government “crisis” finally behind us. Unfortunately, I doubt it will be the last....

"You just don't have the intestinal fortitude to comment on your bad boys because you revel in their arrogant comments."

Back atcha, centerish. Your words.

"My goodness, you do know how to justify your existence on the blog."

So now a person must "justify" his/her existence on this blog?

Next, everyone will have to justify existence on this planet, and only according to liberals' definition, I'd imagine.

Really, centerish, don't you ever tire of badgering right-wingers? Or is the activity somehow energizing to true lefties?

My goodness, you do know how to justify your existence on the blog. You must wear yellow a lot so that it blends in. There is a huge bit of difference between the "quality" and quantity of the right wing blogs vs the left wing. You just don't have the intestinal fortitude to comment on your bad boys because you revel in their arrogant comments. I know that when I have stepped in to call you on your comments, you don't have the facts to back things up. Yep, you are a dyed in the wool right winger.

centerish: "I don't agree with some of the terms that some of the liberals on this blog use and in the past have made comments. But, when compared to the gutter dirt put forth by the right wing bloggers here, I tend to not comment at all on some of the libs comments that meet or cross the line."

So in essence, you do what I do. Then it can be implied that what you said about me applies to you, in the following manner...

"By staying mum on their (the libs') postings, you tacitly agree with their statements."

You can take that as you will. They're your words.

No, I don't think I'm fooling anyone with how I do things, nor do I consider myself as keeping "above the fray" either. I comment how and when I want to. Don't you? Doesn't everyone?

My goodness, loco, are you saying that you really don't agree with starlet, dusty, animal, and the others using the derogatory terms they throw out? By staying mum on their postings, you tacitly agree with their statements. Although you may find the term "loser" to be so offensive, you have by omission given approval to comrade, hairy, peelosi, veritass, and comments towards the WWII combatants in Europe. I don't agree with some of the terms that some of the liberals on this blog use and in the past have made comments. But, when compared to the gutter dirt put forth by the right wing bloggers here, I tend to not comment at all on some of the libs comments that meet or cross the line. I have noticed that you always pretend to be above the fray but then post comments that pull you back into the fray. When I challenge your comments for factual backup, you tend to move on quickly without providing the material. So, keep on, but fool no one.

Veritas: "It's time to rise above loco's constant platitude..."

Platitude: a remark or statement, esp. one with a moral content, that has been used too often to be interesting or thoughtful.

See? Even Veritas thinks I'm vanilla. That means I'm harmless and not worth your effort, centerish. Go on to bigger and better game. Don't forget to talk to willgrr first for the plan...

"Oh, I forgot, that was from your side of the aisle and then it is ok in your book."

centerish, first of all, you are assuming that all rightie posts are A-OK with me. That's your first mistake.

Secondly, the lefties here on MDN are doing a more than adequate (some might say stellar) job of policing righties on MDN. I needn't say one thing with lefties around.

Thirdly, if I don't say anything to you lefties, all you'd be missing are little innocuous vanilla slams, like me calling you aka duracell to task over using the word "losers."

Nothing to get upset about, is it? And don't worry - willgrr has a new system for dealing with righties. Talk to him...

Obviously, loco, you are really on a roll today. Wow. You are concerned about the term loser but you don't have a problem with comrade, veritass, and a host of other slams that were even more volatile towards the left wing bloggers. You also don't seem to have a problem with all the derogatory/demeaning/slang comments towards the President, the minority leader, the Senate Majority leader or others on the left that comes from bloggers from the right. Oh, I forgot, that was from your side of the aisle and then it is ok in your book. But, it does seem to show more and more that when you have no factual defense for a blog, you resort to changing the topic. Now, was the term loser used in this blog by me? Could you cite it? Oh, did I miss the times that you stepped in and voiced your disagreement with the winger bloggers for their sad put downs.

No, I mean calling people that disagree with the liberal philosophy "losers." You and duracell do have that in common.

And if in fact you are duracell, centerish, wouldn't it be better for somebody else to toot your own horn?

oh, you mean the factual presentations and logical assumptions. Thanks. Also, the lack of name calling/hatred/ and lies that are so prevalent with the far right wingers like BDGI, dusty, and scarlet?

Did you notice how Starlet reminds us all of BDGI. Same hatred, same denigrating terms, same name calling, and of course, the same old talking points direct from Rush and Fox news. Did not take long for this out of state blogger to return and spew his lies and hatred. It is time for the MDN to check his credentials and send him away with his old handle.

starette: after the first budget deal, boehner said "i got 98% of what i wanted". no discussion eh? 6 line items on the last cr deal--no discussion eh? they want to stop S.S. and phase out medicare. i don't think you can picture this country without those--hoards of people without any retirement or healthcare; and many through no fault of their own like k mart bought sears or the 2008 crash. SS is no cost because it is no profit. SS does not fail like so many private retirements. to criticise the value and success of SS and Medicare/medicaid is bengazi talk. how did iraq work for you? the fox brainwash is showing here. good letter robert.

Scarlett---Who's doing the blaming? Your Republicon party saddles the country with the worst financial crisis in 80 years and immediately you Republicon say it is "owned" by Obama. The Limpman actually said that the job losses didn't hit 800,000/mo 'til Obama was elected in Nov. '08 as if there is some connection there. What a whopper!! This fiction about only part-time jobs being created is another lie Scarlett, part time job creation is identical to pre-ACA times, but Republicons never let the opportunity pass them by to obfuscate a fact. Any employer who cuts a good employee's hours back 25% to save a couple of bucks is an idiot. That is a fact Scarlett, your lies cannot change that fact.
