Special Coffee Table

A special coffee table. This one is only for those who would like to make personal attacks on those that contribute to this blog. Comments that are largely personal attacks placed elsewhere will be deleted. Let's keep it all in one place so the rest of us can have a discussion about policy, government and the future.

The Donkey has always been told he was special. Good idea, this censorship of the blog, is it carried out with the intent of preventing the release of information that might be useful to an enemy?

So you are enganged in the suppression of ideas by regulating expressions which are not the ideas you want to advance?

Suppression of dissent occurs when the blog king, which is more powerful than another tries to directly censor, and otherwise oppress the other party, rather than engage with and constructively respond to or accommodate the other party's arguments or viewpoint.

When dissent is perceived as a threat, Ron will take action to prevent continuing dissent or penalise dissidents. Freedom of speech is a base for a free society. Why allow all points of view to be given and considered? Censorship plays a central role in the control of speech and other forms of human expression. Bush knows this and Ron has learned.

Bush has said there ought to be limits on freedom, it saddens the Donkey to see Ron helping him along. Will Ron have to destroy the ideas to save them?

To be honest, I don't think that's what he's doing.

Since the hard-core of us got so out of whack that we got way off the topics of the blog, Ron decided I guess that he needs some real peace?

I don't blame him.

I'm sorry, Ron. Things going on in politics & the way sheeple are these days I guess have way ticked me off. I know, let them have their idiocy. Let them drown in it.

Problem is, they're taking down a whole country's worth of people doing it (even if dumbed down ones).

I've found it, after watching this crap for just over the last six years now, quite intolerable. To the point to where I find this country intolerable.

I know, I shouldn't be that way, but it's there nonetheless.

I'm mad as hell, and don't want to take the U.S. bullshit any more.

I will, however, do my best to curb myself here.

Again, I do apologize.

I think you misunderstand the intent. This is for people that want to bicker about each other rather than government policy ETC. Like spending your time downing Game instead of what he said. Like Bewitching downing dedanna and visa versa. If you want to blast a way at bush or rummy or feingold or liberals or conservatives..go for it! If you want to point out the fallacies of someones posting, go for it. This space is if you want to bicker or name call each other. I just ask that you do that here. There is no censorship on this blog unless there is a personal threat. I am just trying to keep the posts on topic.

I didn't misunderstand anything.

I normally just bitch back when people bitch at me.

I don't start.

Hence, until and if there's something to respond to, there won't be anything from me here.

Suggestion if it can be done, to move the ones that have been done to here. If not then, I'm willing to go back and trash my posts that were in that manner. I would appreciate it also if the maniacs would do the same.

And, anyone else who's made some rather... "irritable" posts.

no problem dedanna..actually I was responding to donkey.
I understand the urge to get personal with people that get personal with you. Ignoring them is what they deserve so that's pretty much what I do. At least untill they have something worthwhile to say.

So, what say you to this:

If there is a place to snark and snipe then it isn't so much censorship as a way of containing the s&s (or maybe punishing the s&sers? i.e. this blog's version of G-Bay). In any case, Game and Ron can just decline to come to this coffee table. It's getting boring to snark and snipe a little at Ron and it's hardly worth the trouble to s & s a lot at Game who rarely answers any rebuttal to his STUPID propaganda. (The last could've come right out of an article by the right wing talking heads.) Will pass on the info about the new coffee table to other s&sers.

Also, as far as I'm concerned Ron can delete ALL the posts I've ever made if he wants to go through all the blog's archives.

Maniac and friend, it is strange to me that you are all the things you pretend to hate. Look in the mirror. You are mean hateful no solution people. Ok friend, you have moments of common sense. To bad you can't maintain it. You seem to be a bit bipolar. Not saying you are but it looks that way.

Ron, would you please answer the question?

Thanks much.

To everyone:

I'm getting mighty sick of people (including you, Ron) talking about being american, and accusing who isn't, and who is american. The next time you want to say it about anyone, please look at this link.

Besides, I don't think these days that being american is something to be so proud of. I'm sorry, I don't. I wish I weren't one.

Oh, and if you don't like my wishes, tough --

Doesn't make me any less one. So don't go there, please.

You are right dedanna and I hate doing it too. The problem for me I guess is that I have spent too much time visiting the right wing web sites and listening to the right wing talking heads. It eventually forces one to talk in their "framing" of the issue. That is part of the reason I quit making many comments on games blog. Playing in their framing of the issues has started to lower me to their level just to make it understandable to them, I don't want to do that. You are right, I am guilty.

(Linda) 9/11 was a government plot to invade Iraq. (See "Confronting the Evidence" & "Loose Change" 2nd ed.) There is a NEW al-Qaida now that al-Zarqawi is dead and Bush is in Austria begging for money from other countries.

In light of the fact that this blog is now under the control of "Mr. No Free Speech Ron Dunn" we are announcing that we really WON'T be back again.

(Maniac) This is like a chatroom without a leader and there's no need to create YOUR double standard, RON. We just quit.

Goodbye FOREVER!

Sometimes, I show common sense? Well, thanks a lot. At least, that's more than can be said for The Game! I didn't say anything that wasn't true. It's one thing for Dedanna to criticize the DNC so much. She's not a registered Democrat and I will say this much for Game. At least, he doesn't pretend to be someone he's not-
Mr. Psuedo-Democrat/Liberal-and yes, you should change your registration since we Democrats aren't good enough for a populist to support!
Bi-Polar? Maybe, but since when do YOU have a degree in psychology/psychiatry? Maybe you should do a pop psychology radio show instead of a political one. It might be more successful. And Dedanna can go right on defending you since SHE is considered to be an ACTUAL FRIEND. With me, it doesn't matter if I'm negative or positive. I really should resist the temptation to come to this blog lest I be accused of celebrity stalking. And how is Ggr. these days? That's a rhetorical question you don't have to answer, RON. I'm outta here.

too much work, Im not sure how to do it dedanna. may all comments rest in peace.

It's ok. Seems this thread is working out fine as snark & snipe anyway lol

I'd like to know how many times I should have to defend my political affiliation?

I am not a liberal nor conservative.

I am not a registered democrat.

I speak only what I believe on whatever issue -- those who don't like it, it's tough. You wanna call it political affiliation? You go for it -- I am an independent, and will be until the day I die and afterwards. Although I am a registered independent, I do not believe as most do who are registered independents. I believe what I believe. That's it.

I will never ever defend this again. I don't care who doesn't like it, whether it's Ron, or any other human being. Tough.

And, for those of you who think Ron defends me, and is a "friend", well, think again. I think Ron's emailed me one time since I left Ros Rad -- one of the many contentions that I have with him; he doesn't even respond to my emails. I'm a big girl, and can and do take care of myself.

Let's see you do the same --

dedanna, many will relate to my non response on emails. I make a terrible close friend. It's something that is too hard(emotionally) for me to do with all the moving around I do. Sorry to you all.

'tis ok

I understand

BUT on one condition:

You spend 10 minutes, writing a mass email to everyone you know, updating them on how y'er doing, what y'er up to, how the kids are, etc. etc.

Just once.

Oh, btw, meant to mention also:

I am not a registered republican, either.
