I've made a deliberate attempt to not disrespect or call other members names.  As a result, the word of the day for criticizing Dewey has become "condescending".  I don't see any condescension in your example and I'll have to trust the readers judgment on this one.

Certain comments like "Westerners are dying", "children are being raped", "veterans are dying", and "X more murdered in Chicago" are mostly partisan code words for "Obama is horrific as POTUS".  These and other comments have been made for years inside here and, when they are, I'm prone to comment against the political shot.  It appears I didn't interfere with your exchange at all but instead I countered another poster for their unnecessary "Chicago" input only to have you call me out for turning a thread political.  Clearly, there is no chance a Conservative will call out another Conservative for spinning the thread in a different direction which is why I was the target of choice.  I should say me and DC.  As you know, there have been no Democrats inside here who haven't been accused of inappropriate posting.

I suspect readers who follow this forum know Democrats who disagree with these Conservatives are not held in high regard.  Therefore, we are often called intellectually dishonest and condescending, especially when the more crude and negative remarks are set aside.  I think these criticisms are based on this political anger and little more. 

There are many members who visit this forum that I also see at the ball field.  It would serve me no purpose to act inappropriately or be rude and condescending, only to show my face later to those who may read our posts.  Politics is clearly a difficult subject to discuss but I'm more than capable of discussing these issues respectfully and I'm confident that for the most part, I have.

Edit:  Btw, if our fence sitter has sent criticisms my way, he has done so respectfully.

Your honor, we have a hung jury.

Anyway, this was a thread about Cruz and I posted his false statements politifact listed.  Leave it up to a Conservative to drag Hillary into it by saying "he never lied to military family's faces".  Always looking for a free shot.  Sorry Early but you probably know me by now.  I don't generally let cheap shots go unanswered.  I will agree, it was far too much, particularly since we did this once before.

I've tried to discuss what steps any of you think Cruz will take on immigration.  I've tried to discuss how far Conservatives are willing to go on preventive care for the poor.  I've tried to discuss if business owners should have a right to discriminate.  The only discussion Conservatives want to have inside here revolves around asking a Democrat to criticize another Democrat.  I suppose that's what happens when Conservatives become exhausted from constantly doing it everyday by themselves.

Just as I never said I wanted all undocumented to be made legal, or all to be registered as Democrats, I must admit you didn't say "it wouldn't be difficult" in your post.  If I've learned anything it's that if one considers paraphrasing what they think another posters writes, one better be a Conservative.

Finally, as for "not being that difficult", I thought one of the Government tools you were speaking of would be asking for birth certificates of students and workers.  Clearly I didn't think that was a difficult task for a Cruz or Trump Administration to consider.

I'm going to take a big hit for this but if any of you watched those Trump supporters disrespect and mock Senator Cruz to his face yesterday, it reminded me very much of this forum.  If you're on the other side of some people, you're free game.  Then again, these Trump characters at least understood the cameras meant they wouldn't remain anonymous and would be personally accountable for their disrespectful actions.  I guess they deserve credit for that much.

Ya'll know one thing for sure.  Yours truly will give you the other perspective to all the baloney you're subject to around here. That is if you can stomach mostly partisan attacks on the Left day in and day out.

No - he feels that we on the right are too vile in our communiques so he prefers to dialogue with himself.  He has also been almost 100% focused not on issues but on trying to convince the readers (both of them if I'm being generous) that conservatives are riddled with inherent contradictions.  These imaginary conversations help him support that concept to himself.

He is very much in control of his faculties - he's merely acting out as any 5-year-old would who isn't getting his way.

I don't visit this site often. Sw this thread and wanted to say, I have enjoyed the time I spent with Dewey. I find him to be a good guy, and it's always a pleasure to see him. I respect him as a person. Dewey hope all is well with you. Take Care!

LMSS,

As long as dewy talks about sports he's a jewel. When he starts his silliness not so much. You, not visiting here often have missed 7 years of contentious conversation. Maybe you have something to add while you are here about obama's presidency that speaks only of his accomplishments.

Dewy tries to peddle manure as rose petals and that's where he gets in trouble. The crook he is currently trying to peddle as a presedential candidate doesn't fly too well with the majority of this group of readers.

Lovemesomesoftball - Hey there young lady, it's good to hear from you..  Thank you very much for those kind words.  Other than being about a dozen years older now, I'm doing quite well and I hope all is well with you too.  I'm chasing 12 and 8u now as well as the college U's, primarily the Titans. 

It was a very entertaining UCLA Regional this year and I wish you could have been there.  It seems I manage to bump into jayrot all around So Cal these days and the two of you bring back fond memories of the good ol' days here at UCS, (I should mention jayrot does a great job keeping the softball banter moving along in a positive way).  Anyway, thanks again for the nice post and here's hoping you drop in more often.

Jim Comey isn't a Puss, he was gotten too by the more equal animals. You know, the people that tell us what to do, and how to run our lives and our nation. Ask the GOP majority on the SCOTUS why they rewrote Obamacare in direct violation of separation of powers, instead of booting it back to Congress and telling them to do their job.

Nah EG. It wouldn't have taken you so many years to form that conclusion. I think you wanted to join the criticizers having fun and you were left with no other option but to jump in with both feet. There's some other reason behind it but...whatever. You're far too smart to challenge in the personal manner that you do rather than let your opinions and intellect lead the way. I know I can be annoying but if you had been subjected to what I have over the last eight years, you would come off in a similar manner at times as well. Besides, how can I be more annoying than somebody who stalks almost every post you make. C'mon already. Can you imagine how the posts would be against me if I stalked, or called people pu$$y, coward, and a$$hole? How can my posts I've made through the years be any worse than those? It's because they're not. I just happen to be the target on the left. I am smart enough to understand that much.

Lost - Quite the contrary. Several of our Conservative members over the years who engaged me for awhile sent me very nice PM's. Commended me on how I handled myself versus the huge opposition. One member, now with a completely opposite attitude, used to wish me and my family a Merry Christmas each year. Quite a nice gesture if you ask me. Admittedly, some more of these members have changed over time as well. I attribute it to the fact I remained loyal to Obama. Maybe they think I didn't remain restrained enough when others came at me personally. You know, smarmy as EG says. Not really sure as only one gave an explanation in that they couldn't take my Obama support any longer. Not glad it came to that but it is what it is.

Zero recognition of personal responsibility.  He essentially says that EG is a sheep following others and that there's no legitimate reason for how EG thinks.  Very much like Obama whose only self-criticism is that he hasn't explained his ideas in a way that the stupid masses can understand.

That's how he stifles the flow of speech. Much like other conservative haters who like to separate the lone sheep from the herd. The radical left like to separate the single trump supporter from the crowd and then put a beat down on them.
