A couple of years ago there was always a political argument to be found on Beckley Topix....now there are mainly rightwingers who demand that everyone agree with them or begone....or else those demented posters who only call names or post vulgar crass comments. This is a sad state of affairs. Do we need to look elsewhere for discussions of national affairs? It appears so.

Is that you, Fed Up? Well, who cares. It's just too bad that no one wants to discuss the issues without calling names or insulting other posters. But I guess that's the most that can be expected.

Calling names and insulting other posters...that's the norm on Beckley Topix now. Too bad.

Are you debating yourself now? Do you not think that post was insulting and name calling? How can you accuse others of not debating when you refuse to engage in debate. Spinning the facts, posting left wing propaganda and defending Obama no matter what is not debating. It is being a shill for the democrat party.
If we want that we can just watch MSNBC or read the Huffington Post.

Surely you realize that the second Lesson Learned was not my post but someone else's post. But just in case you didn't....my posts always show that I am registered.

Presenting my opinions and you presenting your opinions, regardless of what is the basis for those opinions, is what I call debating....if that involves my defending the president against unfair and untrue comments posted about him then that's what it is. Why does anyone get angry about that....it's just MY opinion.....UNLESS there is documented evidence that it is not true. But when I present that evidence is when rightwingers seem to get the maddest. I don't get angry when you have different opinions...even when you don't back them up with evidence. But I do get angry when someone calls me a liar. I am a liberal so why wouldn't I post leftwing comments? I don't think you understand what debate is.

Regardless, maybe the next poster will present something that challenges me. But probably not....most seem to prefer to judge my comments without presenting any contradictory evidence.

Sorry to disappoint you but it wasnít meÖ

Here is the topic for tomorrow night welfare recipients taking cash advances in strip clubs. Could it be possible some people actually abuse the system ? I canít wait to read your opinion on this one.

Iím sorry but I have to go to bed so I can go to work tomorrow. Another day / another tax dollar spent in the strip club. Actually I will be in your area tomorrow (Wyoming County) if my memory serves me correct. You have a good night & I hope you find someone to debate with.

I am not disappointed because I don't care anything about you. Sorry if that offends some bleeding heart rightwingers.

Why would you think I would care about "welfare recipients taking cash advances in strip clubs" although I have no idea what you mean by that. Must be trade talk.

Sure am glad you're not one of my employees.

They lost the presidential election, they still don't control the senate like they'd hope to and they lost some seats in the house. Plus, they helped re-elect a junior senator who is more liberal than they begganed for.

Of course they are gonna act childish.

Their way of thinking has gone out of style real fast.

They're dinosaurs.

Even the moderate republicans and independents are running away from their way of thinking like they got the plague.

Yes, I knew it was not you. I just thought it was funny. if you are not aware that what you are doing is not debating, then I cant help you. Obama is an abject failure, period. High unemployment, higher prices at the gas pump and the grocery store, huge national debt, higher taxes and gdp growth of less than 2%. How the hell can you defend that? My attacks on Obama are not unfair, they are based in fact. But any criticism of your Emperor causes you to snap at everyone like a blind dog guarding a feed bowl.

I will debate anyone if it suits me. Right wingers are self righteous blow-hards. They need to have a more moderate tone and they will get a lot of what they want. Being extreme either too far to the left or right is not a great position to be in. This political fanaticism polarizes both parties and creates gridlock. We need a government that is working for the people. Look me in the eye, shake my hand and lets negotiate and deal for the betterment of society and law and order.

You can't debate the brain washed zombies that totally support Obama. It is really strange how many people in this country talk about open debate and exchange of ideas, but when Obama speaks, they turn into the crowd in the movie, "The Mummy" which kept repeating the name Imhotep, Imhotep, Imhotep...Except of course, they repeat; Obam a....Obam a....Obam a.:)

LOL..I can barely type because of the tears of myrth flowing from my eyes..

I'm with you if you had left out the dumbassed comment that "right wingers are self righteous blowhards:)

You at least mentioned the far left also:)

That's a good way to get everyone talking and on the same side again huh?

I expect it will be a long time, if ever, before Beckley Topix posters moderate their political views. Maybe a few more lost elections will bring them to their senses. But I'm not betting on it.

Actually I'm fairly moderate but rightwingers consider anyone extreme who doesn't agree with them 100%.
