You’re right. Nothing gets past Him, indeed. [smiles]
I thought liberals if anything would LIKE a guy who was, for a time, half-Canuck. Not dig in tooth and nail against him.
Yes, the tactic of repeating ones argument over and over while ignoring all facts to the contrary is very Alinsky.
That used to drive me nuts about debating with that one. No amount of facts or reason ever seemed to penetrate.
Ultimately you have to say the obvious and move on.
Remember all voices here ain’t equal. Treating them as they are can really pull you into a pit.
If you catch me doing that, will you do me the honor of going upside my head? LOL
Seriously, I try to treat each conversation as a unique interchange of ideas and thoughts. I might make the same point to multiple people in different places and times, but I don't like to hammer some phrase or position endlessly. Folks just grow weary of it.
Yeah, activism and yacktivism isn’t the same thing. Highlight something good, rebuke something bad. Continue on. Something you want to be seen all the time is a good candidate for a tagline, or decorative stuff if you want to paste it in every single post.
jc breckinridge has been purple-screened.
But I appreciate the responsive post. Thank you.
I agree. He was so annoying that Jim sent him on his trip to ZOT.
He was a successful distraction for a while there, but he did not play his hand well.
No, it's not.
Set your preferences to 50 for the page, go to his posting history and set the tab to headers so you don't get the full body of text, and you can look for any posts from JRF to yourself.
You don't need to read everyone. Just look at the ones FROM him TO you.
I just did something similar a couple days ago looking for a post I recall seeing. I remember pinging someone to it, so I just looked for all the posts from me to that fellow FRepeer. And the post was from June.
It doesn't take as long as you'd think.
There certainly are.
Those were the days, my FRiend We thought they'd never end.......
Pointing people to a page with his issues outlined would have been better FR manners... but I don’t think it was even a manners issue. I think he was here to try to sap Cruz momentum.
I know other axe grinders like this. When it’s cockamamie theology I have to watch myself not to jump over them 8 ways from Sunday. (Though sometimes they earn it. Folks who preach in whatever way that the gospel is weak particularly get my goat!)
That can definitely be the case sometimes, but I also think that we Freepers raise our collective level of education and thinking prowess with our discussions. It's why I don't immediately give up on someone who doesn't seem to be 'getting it'.
Patience does have its limits, though.
Well ultimately we have to be looking for what’s true, rather than just what’s clever.
I found my backing in what’s true. It’s the Lord. And it ain’t an academic exercise to me. I am a spiritual optimist and it’s strange and yet gratifying to tell all those gloom mongers that I have better news for them than they ever hoped to believe. A non wimpy gospel with power in it for now, not just for after pushing up daisies.
Sounds very familiar doesn’t it...?
**If that keeps up we’ll soon see a bugzapper thread started.
Those were the days, my FRiend We thought they’d never end.......**
Are you old enough to remember that song?
That’s the one I was thinking of.....
Will FR embrace socialism to make way for Rudy Giuliani as a Republican presidential candidate?
