. But on a related point, it is kinda funny around here when you libs don't have an intelligent point to make. That is your standard response. We see it as code for "dang it! they got us again; guess all we can do now is talk about irony." :wink:


Of all the unintentionally funny things you guys say around here, the fact that you think people like RSF, SFA, Uniballer, purpledawg and Hfrog71 are "libs" strikes me as the funniest.

NFF, is Newf offensive, too?


No. They're cute little puppies.

If a plank creaks in the floor, he snatches up his pistols and imagines there is a Liberal hiding under his bed. At once all the bells in the castle are set ringing ... the Minister of Police takes good care not to deny the existence of any conspiracy; on the contrary, alone with the Prince, and armed to the teeth, he inspects every corner of the rooms, looks under the beds, and, in a word, gives himself up to a whole heap of ridiculous actions worthy of an old woman." --Stendahl, The Charterhouse of Parma (1839)

Do unto others, only if they do unto you first.
Nevermind the fact that NFF wasn't disrespectful.


You clearly haven't read many of his posts then.

(See, humor is pretty neat when you don't get yours in a wad). But on a related point, it is kinda funny around here when you libs don't have an intelligent point to make. That is your standard response. We see it as code for "dang it! they got us again; guess all we can do now is talk about irony." :wink:


Which tells me, once again, you have no bloody idea what just happened. And telling somebody to go take a dump sure is intelligent.

But I can go with 'accuse the accuser', if that's easier for you to understand. I'm flexible.

I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it...no matter how off-base it is.

The fact there are lots of liberals here who don't think they are liberal is even funnier.

Just curious. How is a conservative 'redefined' here? At least you admit you are a liberal. Seriously, I can respect that. But I can't respect those who run and hide from it.

Pretty easy to define a liberal or conservative IMO......... No true conservative could ever support a Womans " choice" to have an abortion as a method of birth control. Or.........if you Really want to be honest and call a spade a spade......a womans choice to have someone murder her own baby.

If you support these actions then you are in no way a conservative,.....period.
How many folks in this room support the law concerning abortion?

How many dont?

Simple as that.
"I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around [the banks] will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered. The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs."

Hey, they were talking about Vlad the Impaler on Pawn Stars last night. He's thought to be the inspiration behind the Dracula character. Someone was selling an autographed copy of Bram Stocker's Dracula, but it wasn't a first edition.

An English prof here, recently retired, is a world authority on Stocker and Dracula.

Cool. I'll assume that you support me in being anti-death penalty, pro-Planned Parenthood and recognizing societal privilege since we're on the same team now and you decided only one litmus test matters.
