I know JcP...it's weird. It's like he's reading through a translator...everyth ing he says is the complete flipside to what reality equates to.

But he did say he was going to leave...that's always promising.

". . . but it sure does speak volumes about how serious to take the room in general. The world is filled from corner to corner with talkers but few walkers."

That's what the man thinks of the room. And I'm the bad guy.

Actually, many people here (Yahooka) tends to live up to their ideals. Kamee, for example, is well known for being a very strong activist and has posted videos of himself actually at these protests and other rallies.

When I was referring to 'the room', I meant the greater room, the world, as a whole...not this single website. I thought you'd get the metaphor...thought wrong.

Anyway, I think this has gone on long enough and the thread is near closure if it continues...so if you have more to say, you can PM it.

". . . but it sure does speak volumes about how serious to take the room in general.

Now the room is a metaphor for "the greater room, the world as a whole... "

It has nothing to do with how you feel about all of us here.
Actually it kind of goes with your image. You don't have to spin anything on my account.

flappy, read the quote of his you quoted...

". . . but it sure does speak volumes about how serious to take the room in general. The world is filled from corner to corner with talkers but few walkers."

you bolded the first sentence and tried to use it as some sort of weird way to make everyone not like Egotripping because he thinks "we" or "the room" are stupid/boring/whatever...but completely neglected to address the second unbolded sentence which proves Ego's original intent without question.

And now you're trying to paint Ego Tripping like he's changing his story to cover himself or something...which is a DOUBLE fail.
what's your issue, man?

dunno, never met him. But he speaks coherantly and doesn't contradict himself within the course of two sentences very much. So he and I tend to get along on these boards, most of the time. We've had a few disagreements in Spiritual Smoke and the like, but its always civil since we both base our debate-points in facts and logic.

Fucking idiots; some are so whacked out they become the terrorists (see abortion clinic bombings, the killing/threatening of doctor's who perform abortions, etc). These people are usually also gun nuts as they need to be heavily armed to protect themselves from those Mexicans *are racists*.
Here's todays example

How come we never hear from you when your boy is insulting people? Never a word about that. These are just examples from this thread alone:

"And zerodown, at what point did I ever defend the police? Kiss my ass, thanks."
"This guy is completely bonkers...and obviously doesn't know shit about this forum."
"Fucks sakes, you're a moron."
"I just think you're just a troll "
"all I see is people calling you a twit "
"you guys don't have the stomach to do a damn thing "


always civil

JcP...you a communist ? Where do you find that compassionate leadership...Obama?G ov.Bobby Jingles? Barbie Boxer? Rev.Al? Mike Huckabee? Just curious.

"Communism run by level headed and compassionate leadership is as good a system as we've ever devised, imho."

guess I missed your continuation of the thread.

Once again, you fail to use reading comprehension because you're choosing to argue instead of listen and respond.

Ego and I are always civil to one another because we base our debates in logic, facts, and non-personal attacks.
Since you fail in this department, his responses become increasingly personal, as the issues wanting to be discussed have to be put on hold until you (or whomever) stops their non-sequetors and contradictions and gets back on track.

In fact, you once again bold a part of a sentence because it gives you fodder to attempt to "argue" with me or someone, but completely disregard the context of the bolded sentence,completely owning yourself in the process.

here is the quote. I've italicized your original bolding, and bolded the part that destroys your subsequent attempt at discrediting my original point:

We've had a few disagreements in Spiritual Smoke and the like, but its always civil since we both base our debate-points in facts and logic.

So, yet again, what's your issue man?

In spirit I'm a socialist, I suppose, although I have issues with that too. I am also, however, a realist. I recognize that socialism (and communism, to a greater degree) have never worked as well as they should because of the human condition. I think if humanity ever gets over its obsession with the "me first" mentality, communism would be the utopian style of government of present political theories. We do not live in that utopia, so I also recognize this is illogical at the present time.
And while communism has a "leader" the actual utopian concept is that the leaders are "the workers."
Are you familiar with marxism? Do you know the communist theory? If so, I'd be happy to discuss this with you (probably in a new thread as this is OT). If you're just throwing out terms you don't understand, I have no interest.
I get so depressed when I see Americans calling Obama a fascist AND a communist.
