Skip to comments.A Return to Triangulation (libertarion vs social right)
Posted on 10/25/2006 11:10:46 AM PDT by Blackirish
As the Republican base fragments and Christian conservatives consider a fast from politics, the polling data point to a mid-term Republican thumping. Less than two weeks from now, Republicans will begin their post-mortem soul searching. And as the corpses of their House and Senate majorities grow cold, so should Karl Roves 2006 campaign strategy.

Okay, a Theory of Evolution fundamentalist.
Well, dear, YOU certainly aren't "important" at all. OTOH, fatima never did claim that SHE was; but she is quite IMPORTANT to her FRiends here. And FYI...and anti-FR site is anti FREE REPUBLIC.
Well, maybe we ought to just part ways then while we're still friends.
His son is in Iraq-Hellooo.
No, more like *cretard* which is used pretty regularly over at DC. How clever...
They try. But it doesn't make the science suspect if it is backed by tremendous amounts of evidence, like evolution.
And don't imply that I attack believers, because I do believe in God.
If the left decided to "embrace" the flag, it wouldn't sully it either.
I guess I'm just not motivated enough to enforce that sort of orthodoxy, and call it "leadership". Sorry again.
You have an anti-freeper website.
Would you care if I suggested that this website was "anti-Darwin Central"? Should you?
I never said "banned".
Shallow people rarely care about or think about anyone but themselves. Case in point presented here.
LOL! Yep it does J
Almost all graphics that I post will have a clickable link. Sometimes it will be music. Sometimes it will be to another thread. Whatever........
Now you know.......
Opinions will vary ;)
OTOH, fatima never did claim that SHE was; but she is quite IMPORTANT to her FRiends here.
I am glad - she's lucky to have good friends. As are you. As am I.
I would tend to disagree. My opinions obviously are not sufficient to affect yours; similarly, yours are not sufficient to affect me. It happens.
Just throwing back a little of what the DC folks have been force feeding on this forum for some time. Does the word 'fundie', and 'muslim extremist' ring a bell. It better, because there is quite a history that could be dredged up, especially on threads with the first post starting out with the BS 'everybody be nice'.
"BTW, many of these people that have been banned are hard working scientists... one of whom is currently engaged in research to thwart terrorists."
Swell. I wish that individual success--honestly. But that does not mitigate in the least the reprehensible conduct (BTW, you are talking about the misnamed 'RightWingProfessor', whose own words here were something to the effect of regretting ever doing something for the right
"Ironic, isn't it? Do you have any idea how what you wrote comes across? And do you even give a d*mn?"
Actually, I don't. And the victim ploy is disingenuous, given the history. I'm not fond of folks who quote scripture in place of thought, but I despise those who decide to prey upon the civility of others. In other words, if you haven't seen it, watch the movie 'Witness' and watch the teen punks picking on an Amish person, knowing that said Amish will not fight back. Then along comes the character played by Harrison Ford.
And before you start running back to your site, keep in mind that there are folks on this forum who do understand science, and resent the crap that's been thrown about. Also keep in mind that some folks don't 'talk shop' here, and its none of your god d**ned business what they do for a living.
Now, you want to talk science, then do so. Once that becomes 'conservatives are retards' or 'conservatives are anti-science', a line gets crossed.
This blowup has been festering for a long time. I'm surprised its taken this long to start kicking some a**.
Are you kidding me? Have you been reading this thread?
No. I'm not anti-freeper. You misunderstood. What I was trying to say is that the other site provides more than enough evidence to show just how disingenous how its members (not all) can be.
Yeah sure, you didn't say banned in so many words but there's not a lot of other interpratations. If they left on their own, they weren't *tossed*. Slippery.
Is that kind of like you just called me a Marxist (#719) because I stated the obvious that Marxists (meaning the left) use "science" as a weapon against us? And then next accusing me of claiming all scientists are Marxists (#735)?
The GOP must be the party of reason and science. We cannot cede those positions to the Dems. There are some folks who say that modern biology diametrically opposed to faith. I don't buy that for a minute. I've known too many people in biology who are Christians and Jews. None of them had any problem with Darwin's theory of natural selection or Mendel's theory of inheritance or the rest of it.
The only conflict between science and faith is that which people manfacture, but there are some people on this board trying to manufacture conflict. Scratch some of these guys, and you find some real pieces of work. That that Ted Holden character (medved) is back posting again under a new nick. He's a fruit loop. I don't want the Republican party to become associated with his brand of idiocy.
His son is in Iraq.You are not a leader-don't waste my time and post to me again.
Case in point: you and your ilk hijacked this thread and turned it into a flame war and a place to air your own agendas, pimp your forum, and insult Jim and everyone else who is not part of your teensy group. I group, I might add, which spends the vast majority of its time discussing something that is NOT politics. This forum was set up for the debate and discussion of POLITICS!
Yes, by now, FR has morphed into a site that encompasses other things.........which is okay if you people stay in your own part of FR, I guess; however, you don't. You came onto this thread and ruined it.
Little jeremiah said that the word "fundie" is not an insult, rather a neutral descriptive term.
Glad to see you're still here posting, BTW.
So I should automatically adhere to his views in their entirety?
I would thank his son for his service, of course; for that, we are all grateful.
You are not a leader-don't waste my time and post to me again.
OK. Sorry you feel that way.
No,This is a Conservative site but they sure don't talk about your site. Sure, no one talks about DC.
Are you saying "evofundie" isn't an insult?
And THAT is specious, at best.
Thank God, you didn't say "evolved."
Maybe. Then again, I don't care - I have other priorities besides being seen as important to FR. Sorry.
Say you are sorry to SoldierDad.
Does the phrase "dialectical materialism" strike a chord?
Does the name "JBS Haldane" ring a bell?
No, not all scientists are Marxists. Most aren't. But it would be refreshing to hear those Marxists misusing science being loudly told to STFU.
I blame it on the Gramscian infiltration of the academy...and no, I don't accept any analogies to Dr. Strangelove for saying that.
When someone puts down a friend of mine who means a lot to me I take offense from that. Especially when the friend has done nothing to earn such disregard. I don't understand people who take such delight in being so rude and obnoxious.
Something called statistical inference is involved in the question. I think population size is a significant part of that involvement.
Oooooooooooooooo....that WOULD have been a disaster. LOL
What am I apologizing for?
If you (and yours) continue insulting my dear friends, not to mention continuing to insult my beliefs, then you and I will cease being friends.
Whom have I insulted?
Also, in which posting did I deny a "Creator"?
It means nothing to me so relax.
OBTW, here's the thing you were looking for:
Have no idea. I'm sure you're the only innocent person here.
It's been a problem for the last few years trying to support low-taxes, smaller government, and such. These are now welded to the idea of being a racist anti-science nut.
No apologies necessary. I've got a hide a mile thick. But, thanks anyway. :)
If you didn't care, you wouldn't have responded as you have and if you REALLY didn't care, you would just go post on your twee Darwin forum and get off FR.
You aren't sorry at all.
Your ego is palpating with hurt and anger.
And as far as "priorities" are concerned, that's just another way of claiming that you are standing on your "principles". Neither tactic is working; dear. LOL
