They used to say Reagan was a dunce ...Bushes 1 and 2 were stupid ...Quayle was an idiot because he spelled potato wrong ...Now I'm in an argument with a friend of a friend on Facebook whp says his cat has more brains than Palin and Bachmann , and that Hilary has forgotten more than they know put together ! What would you saud to this jerk ? I just can't ignore him . This was my latest response :
" Typical leftist modus operandi : use the dumb card ( or race card or whatever other card is at their disposal ) ...Reagan was a dunce they said...Quayle an idiot because he spelled potato incorrectly ...Bush was a 1 and 2 were stupid ...Now Bachmann and Palin are dumb ...So predictable ...Only the left have brains ...I see ...I see all too clearly ..."
I just ask; “got anything new?”
Liberals who destroy everything they ever get their hands on call victims of their destruction ‘dumb’...
They’ve been calling conservatives “dumb” for over 50 years!
I YAWN in their general direction.
Ooh, I like that a lot. Ridicule at its finest. :D
“Theyve been calling conservatives dumb for over 50 years!”
Strange, I had this smart/dump arguement just this weekend with a relative. We hung up on the 72 election with her claiming that Nixon was not charactarized as dumb.
Apparently it is destructive enough that it kept the Clintons from using their vaunted private detective operation from delving into Baraq's "ghost" background and blowing him out of the race.
It’s really the only thing that works with these types. Facts don’t mean anything to them. They just want to get YOU on the defensive. Don’t do it. If you get frustrated, they win.
“Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon. It is almost impossible to counteract ridicule. Also it infuriates the opposition, which then reacts to your advantage.”
Ain’t nothing says we can’t use their weapons against them. What amazes me is that they NEVER expect it.
Agree with him and then say these republicans are so stupid they think there are only 57 states...
one exception in more than 50 years...what a counterpoint!...though, it’s probably only a half-remembered cronkite meme like quayle and potay toes
I’m stymied by that one!
if not “stupid”
“evil” suffices....tricky dick...yeah smart/ ok...evil nonetheless.
I buy none of the memes, they’re used by the left for covering up their lies.
Memes = the new word or phrase that, repeated often enough, become pseudotruth.
There’s a REASON the troops, liberating the skeletal death camps of hitler made surrounding villagers clean them up.
I sent this to the guy . Haven’t heard from him again !
I took your advice . No response yet .
Sarah Palin's Alaska.
Eating free-range organic game.
Then point out that Sarah held on to HIM through the whole shellacking, and five kids; but Hillary couldn't even hold the attention of lardass Bill.
And Hillary got fired from the Watergate Judiciary Committee staff for unethical behaviour: she got fired from the team *Prosecuting* Watergate!
Look up Palin's Wall Street Journal editorials from before her run for VP: give them to the friend without the byline.
Tell them to look at Palin's record rooting out corruption as Governor of Alaska.
The poster showed a level of frustration, if not anger, with the person. That goes beyond a simple political back-and-forth. The fact he felt the need to post his frustration on this forum shows the level of angst he's feeling.
And that's my point. A friend is a friend is a friend. And friendship goes beyond poker games, fishing, sports, girls-night-out or backyard barbeques. Friendship means you're there for the other person. And if that person is being treated poorly by another of your friends, you're remiss if you don't act on behalf of the injured party. And it shouldn't have to wait on the request of the injured party. Being an online situation where the "other" friend isn't a friend of the injured party, the middle friend has to be aware of the issue.
Once again; when it gets to that level, the friend should be there for him. While I don't know all the facts, I have to assume the friend hasn't been helpful. If that's the case then IMO the friend either needs to step up or be un-friended. You may not agree, but that's my belief. I take the old saw "What are friendships for..." seriously.
As I stated, I spend little time on Facebook. I find it silly, inconsequential and sometimes self-demeaning the way people use it. I only keep my account for the occasional contact with very close friends and relatives, and a way to keep up on what's happening with a couple organizations I belong to. But friends, whether Facebook or otherwise, are just that to me, and they deserve my allegiance as well as my fun side. Yet, if they take me for granted, then maybe they need a wake-up call...
