One has *absolutely no way of knowing tone of voice* online; remember, if you claim to know that others have "character flaws," your own logic *HERE* throws that into grave question.rdg1234,
It's obvious you had trouble comprehending that my original post, you took extreme exception with, was written facetiously.
Nonetheless, I accept this with goodwill because there were moments that you were making me laugh.
Look up the word "hypocrisy." You have misused it upwards of five times now.I wrote it facetiously because I saw your hypocrisy with every word you wrote.
Moreover, you are *seriously* manipulating words and concepts in a pretense of making me look "inconsistent." And there's something else, still worse, so hold onto your seat.
Inconsistency in argument is *SEMANTIC* and *PEDANTIC*. It doesn't matter. I *bet a million bucks* you will continue to think it does, but in case you haven't noticed, I've shown how *YOU* are also inconsistent several times. It's simply that *I* know human beings are, and you seem to act as if you've discovered some buried treasure every time you find a real or manipulated instance that someone else is.
I am smiling/laughing. I'd *LOVE* to know how you know this if I am a *complete stranger on a message board*. You WANT to draw this conclusion. That's the REAL truth here.You sersiouly think too highly of yourself!
By your logic,*every* person's *every* conviction betrays an agenda; BOOM, that means YOU have one.You have an agenda and are uncompromising as evidenced by your words: "I certainly am standing on a moral base which won't be budged in a trillion, billion, zillion years."
For my lack of compromise, you can go shake hands with -- and thank -- the anti-abortion people.
As according to you. Then again, we could review your posts and I could find a *host* of behaviors I would consider *HIGHLY* immoral. Shall we really play this game?Another comment of yours: "I am not one, ever, to back down where I have a *deep moral conviction* that I am right."
That's wonderful! You have deep convictions but MORAL they are not.
Is this what America is reduced to? A bunch of damn dumbasses who play "holier-than-thou" all the time? I don't give a *shit* what you think of my "morality" because I don't value *your opinion* on these matters. Am I clear?
Oh, no, the conviction's not the problem.Does it matter to you that I and others also say, "I am not one, ever, to back down where I have a *deep moral conviction* that I am right?"
The shootings of doctors are the problem.
The screaming and the name-calling are the problem.
The continued, daily, hysterical, obsessive attempts to devalue your fellow human beings are the problem.
The inability to leave others alone is the problem.
