Which is why I don't post links.
Can you talk for yourself?
I do speak for myself. Some ask where I obtained the information I'm conversing and so I provide them with links. Others, such as you are trying to say you are, prefer just opinions from individuals. Whether or not my or their opinion is substantiated is of little concern on how I or they came about to manage the symmetrization on this or that issue.
Its easy for people to put forth their opinions. Whether or not what they have summarized is correct may require additional research. A link they provide for me may be bias or not. At least they provide a source for how they arrived to their opinion. Your opinion is just that and if that is all it is then that is how I accept your conclusions. Then I research if your opinion with others with a more established reputable credentials on the issue in conversation. Then I decide which is probably the correct answer. If you prefer to not provide links is up to you. I prefer to add, occasionally, links that supports what my opinion may be on this or that issue.Why should that bother you?? Are my opinions or yours above reproach?
No links provided...

Really?. You can't even get "Tootsie Roll" right. You can only dream of being an academic parasite like your MESSiah in the White House. You may as well subtract the 100 and stick with 40.
BTW: What do you think of your fellow Kalifornian in the news?. You know, the mentally disturbed rich boy Democrat who took the phony "War On Women" to a whole new level. Do you think a "smart gun" would have prevented this?.
Sorry I didn't proof read my post, but you understood the part about you eating cat turds out of the sand box.

Please have someone ,who at least got past the 9th grade ,try to explain what communism is to you. You still don't have a clue, and you're embarrassing REAL Texans every time you misuse it.

Don't know if it is true or not , but I heard the nut that shot up Isla Vista was a card carrying NRA member,and a registered Republican with tea party leanings. I also heard he was a transplant from Vermont. I don't know if any of that is true, but .......

So, when are your parents getting married Phew-bar?.
Both of my mother's were widows, but my real mom was remarried over twenty years ago.

So did you mom/sister ever marry your dad/uncle? When are you going to marry that sheep of yours? You should make an honest ewe out of her.

What the hell re you talking about?
I side with Defiant because he sometimes sides with me. I hate queers and, try not to ever think about them. You freaking idiot.
How stupid are you? I answered your question. Your buddy Defiant is obsessed with homosexual acts as you can see in most of his posts. I think he might be in the closet and overcompensating like you. We all know you hate gays,people of color, Jews and anyone who is smarter than you. Well that means you hate everybody. We also know you lie about being a Christian. Hate eats people alive and the stress on your heart(snicker) must almost be unbearable.

As our shit colored savior goes to fund raisers, parties, and golf outings and his big assed beard shops till she drops, it is pleasurable to watch this country slowly go down the drain as unemployed and underemployed people spend their time arguing about bull dykes and peter puffers hooking up in legal matrimony.

Seriously, are we an infantile nation, or what? All of you self absorbed millenials should start trying to master the Russian and Mandarin languages in lieu of killing each other and taking selfies. Our creditors will rule us and the truth be known, already do. Most Americans are too fricking stupid to realize it. How is that Hope and Change going, Obamatards?

So You call Obama your savior, which makes you an idiot and rules out any chance of you being a Jew ,Christian,Mormon, Muslim, Hindi, Buddhist or member of any other religion. You reveal yourself to be a racist and homophobe(most homophobes are overcompensating for their own sexuality).
Most of all you reveal yourself to be A phussy who has surrendered to his imaginary foes.You make me sick. It's obvious you don't love this country, ma you can move to one of the Scandinavian countries that is starting to limit the amount of immigrants of color allowed inside their borders. Then you won't have to cower in fear everything you see someone who isn't Aryian.

Sweetie, I suggest you start with Pimsleur and work your way to more written word learning methods. Either that, or bend over for the Chinese and Russians. I am not leaving this country, I want to see all the hipsters and gays scramble when the dollar is worthless. All of that political correct hipster crap will not pay off the creditors, idiot.

The Obamatards are in denial. The issue of bull dykes and peter puffers hooking up is yet another distraction to keep the stupid peasants busy while our country is being sold out from under us.

I found phew-bars playbook!. Eat shyte libtards.

1. SHOW UP WITH YOUR TALKING POINTS. Make sure you have something that you feel will show your opponents in a negative light, and make that the subject of the discussion.

2. DEMONIZE YOUR OPPONENT. Attempt to cover them with shame, the same way you would a 4 year old that touches his pee-pee.

3. IF YOU SEE SOMEONE DOING #2 ABOVE, SUPPORT HIM IMMEDIATELY.

4. ACCUSE YOU OPPONENT OF SAYING SOMETHING HE DIDN’T. Attempt to define his statements in a negative light. Interpret them this way and state it as fact that he did actually say it. NEVER ask him…always TELL him what his meaning was.

5. CLAIM THAT IT IS “OLD NEWS” AND NOT WORTHY OF DISCUSSION. This applies especially when the discussion turns to the misdeeds of Democrat Party Leadership.

6. QUOTE AN UNSOURCED NEW ARTICLE. Always quote the article selectively, or describe it in a general manner.

7. IF ASKED DIRECT QUESTIONS ABOUT THE NEWS YOU HAVE PROVIDED, RESPOND INDIRECTLY. Never actually answer the specific of the question.

8. IF ASKED TO SOURCE YOUR NEWS ARTICLE, IGNORE THE QUESTION.

9. ACCUSE YOUR OPPONENT OF A MENTAL DEFECT OR LACK OF INTELLIGENCE. Personal attacks of this sort are especially useful as the target will almost always try to defend himself, thus changing the subject.

10. IF THE PARTY LEADERSHIP IS ATTACKED, ATTEMPT TO TURN THE TABLES BY INFERRING THAT SOMEONE IN YOUR OPPONENTS PARTY IS JUST AS BAD.

11. ACCUSE YOUR OPPONENT OF NOT ANSWERING YOUR QUESTIONS. Try to do this before he has an opportunity to. Try to infer that it you have given him multiple opportunities to do so. Do it even if the question has been answered. If he misses the question and asks you to repeat it DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES REPEAT THE QUESTION FOR HIS BENEFIT).

12. RESORT TO INSULTS. Try to question you opponent’s masculinity, his resolve, ANYTHING, but try to diminish and demean him.(This is know as the “LBJ Rule” codified by him thus:“Accuse your opponent of being a pig fornicator, then make him deny it.) REMEMBER, IF YOU HAVE TO RESORT TO THIS TACTIC, IT MEANS YOUR OPPONENT IS WINNING!

13. ACCUSE YOUR OPPONENT OF BEING UNINFORMED. This works especially well when you are asked to provide your sources. It is especially effective if you work in a reference to someone you have already demonized. Rush Limbaugh is currently the Demon of Choice.

14. SPEAK CRYPTICALLY. Try to make it difficult for people to divine your meaning

15. CHANGE THE SUBJECT. Try to get it back to your original talking points (see #1 above)

16. APPEAR TO AGREE. You will need to do this in order to achieve #15.

17. CLAIM YOUR OPPONENT IS BEING UNREASONABLE OR WON’T LISTEN TO REASON, AND LEAVE IN A HUFF.

18. BAIT YOUR OPPONENT. Needle him, tease him, call him names until he makes an inappropriate post, then scream bloody murder to the Moderator.

19. DENY THE EVIDENCE EXISTS. Ask for evidence of wrongdoing by those you support. When that evidence is presented, continue denying that it exists.

I have seen all of these tactics used. It's psychological abuse and gaslighting.

It is not moral nor ethical behavior.
