HATE WEEK Is StILL RIDING HIGH!
A face devoid of love or grace,
A hateful, hard, successful face,
A face with which a stone
Would feel as thoroughly at ease
As were they old acquaintances —
First time together thrown.
~ Emily Dickinson (1830-1886)
Another revelatory thread!
Dear Liberals, Socialists and Assorted Idiots, especially Ms Shaw!ReplyDelete
We tried to tell you but YOU told US we were crazy.
YOU voted for what you DIDN’T get…TWICE.
And although your won’t admit it, YOU know it.
For the last 41/2 years, the Emperor has made it very clear that he wanted to stick it to the “rich” and hike THEIR taxes.
WE, as conservatives, TRIED to tell you that HE was lying.
We tried and we tried and every time we told you he was going to hike YOUR taxes, even though YOU are part of the MIDDLE CLASS that the Emperor said MUST NOT be harmed by higher taxes…
YOU told us that WE had NO IDEA what we were talking about.
YOU called US crazy. You called US names.
YOU said WE were lying.
Well, now that you’ve seen your paychecks, what do you think?
77% of ALL Americans, regardless of their class, lower, middle or upper, have had their taxes jacked up.
YOU are among them.
WE were telling YOU the TRUTH.
Remember Obamacare?Well, THAT’S ONLY just PART of your current tax hike, there much more to come..
We told you so.
died LAST year because, Capital Gains taxes are also UP, Up, UP!!!
We told you so. Take another look at your paycheck liberals, socialists and assorted idiots Ms. Shaw included, Oh, let me revise that and say ESPECIALLY MS. SHAW! and while you do, realize the guy responsible for your shrinking bottom line just came back from a 6 MILLION DOLLAR Hawaiian Vacation WITH HIS GRUBBING WOOKIE AND HUNDREDS OF OTHERS... and YOU paid for it! .
He left for vacation without having a deal to hike YOUR taxes yet, had to fly home to finish YOUR tax hike, flew BACK to Hawaii to play more golf and then, flew home again…ALL ON YOUR DIME WHILE YOU WAITED FOR YOUR FIRST…SMALLER…PAYCHECKS , AND THEN HIGHER TAXES!
We told you too, that were the Emperor allowed to jack up taxes on the “rich” he wouldn’t be done with it there. We TOLD you he would want MORE.
We were correct about that too.
Over the weekend, Pelosi made it clear that YOUR socialist party is not yet done raising taxeS

A Man of Steel once said .
"One death is a tragedy; one million is a statistic."
Was he just being realistic?
Or was 20 million too much.
That he just simply lost touch.

What of the man named Mao?
You never here of him now.
Killed seven times more than Hitler.
So if the shoe fits ya'.
When you think red, think dead
You know, it really bugs the hell out of me when I think about the dumb, Illiterate, uneducated morons who put this monster in office and who are still defending him today. And so many good people and hard working families have to suffer because of it. And when us conservatives complain about the damage he has cause, we are called “racists” Well, that’s no surprise, that’s the liberal’s mantra, “Blame Bush” or call us “Racist’s” And still these useful idiots, are in awe over this Socialist, and won’t accept the truth.ReplyDelete
I don’t know, Ms. Shaw, if but if she was raised by socialists and communists or whether she learned it in school, or whatever, but all I know is that I don’t like her.
The Benghazi hearings begin today, so be prepared for MORE Liberal LIES!ReplyDelete
I hate "Hate Week".ReplyDelete
THANK you MoM,ReplyDelete
Now your FIRST post was a worthy contribution. Shows thought, good self-discipline and even a sense of humor. And it makes an excellent POINT without insulting anyone in particular. As you've doubtless figured out, I like rhyme. It's a succinct and often clever way to make a statement without becoming verbose.
Your second post was less appealing, because it was so much like too many others. I don't disagree with much of what you -- or others -- said, but the TONE is never going to attract any new disciples or help anyone to change his mind.
Accusatory rhetoric, even when it may be justified, is repugnant to most people -- and particularly to those to whom it's specifically directed.
The friendlier, "Do you think we could talk together?" approach MIGHT be more fruitful. There are no guarantees, of course.
Good day to you!

Ducky said, "I hate Hate Week."ReplyDelete
But why, Ducky? Haven't you realize yet that, since these threads have been WIDE OPEN for several days, YOU and everyone else who has participated have the power WITHIN YOURSELVES to "change the tone."
It's certainly not MANDATORY for anyone to post hateful, accusatory, inflammatory, insulting or plaintive remarks.
For a week this place is functioning as a MICROCOSM of The World -- a place NO ONE -- not even The Oligarachs, who own and operate all the industries and institutions that matter, can control. But WE can control the way we choose to respond to unpleasant things.
There is a LESSON to be learned here. I'll spell it out for you:
EACH one of us -- and that means YOU -- has the power to govern what he or she chooses to say. That so many -- yourself included -- generally post bilious sentiments reflexively is a given. The POINT is WHY do they react to ANY and EVERY source of stimuli -- not matter how beautiful, ingenious, hopeful, encouraging or benignant it may be -- has become a source not only of irritation, disappointment and disgust, but of great concern to me.
The lesson we are SUPPOSED to learn is NOT to RESPND in KIND.
You may "hate" this exercise, because it comes close to forcing participants either to look at yourself honesty (something few dare to do) or turn away in disgust, because you can't or won't face unpleasant truths.
This exercise is NOT about partisan politics or "Ms Shaw" or me. Instead it is all about EVERYONE who indulges in this open opportunity to be as negative and obnoxiously unkind as they like.
The picture we've been getting is not very encouraging, I admit, but at least it's TRUTHFUL.
When we know -- and can make ourselves FACE -- the Truth, it WILL make us free.
It's all about seeing ourselves as others see us -- or THINK they see us, and acting with contrition and a new determination to do better.

In the final analysis, we're all just agonists.
That need not be, Kurt. I think we've become obsessed with being hyper-critical. We look for the worm in every apple, the hole in ever doughnut, the blight on every rose petal, the mole or pimple on every face FIRST and LAST.ReplyDelete
Because of this propensity, we lose the Big Picture, get mired in minutiae, and bug the bejesus out of each other, instead of sharing new knowledge and more enlightened views.
Instead of looking for common ground, we'd rather try to run each other off the grounds or blast each other to bits.
It AIN'T good, and I done got my jaw dead set AGIN it.
We ALWAYS have the choice NOT to add to the ugliness we all say we dislike.

Thanks, Ms Shaw. That small bit of verse -- with which I'm sorry to say I am not familiar -- is neat way of saying "A man wrapped up in himself makes a very small package." -- sorta ;-)ReplyDelete
I have a fond -- if faint -- hope that by allowing all this Ess-Aitch-Eye-Tea to collect out in the open, it may soon dry out, get, itself, spread around and eventually nurture a nice crop of beautiful blossoms -- prize pumpkins -- superior strawberries -- or perhaps a field of alfalfa? ;-)
Yes, Jerry, I have thought about featuring a Love Week. I think however I'll probably call it Antidote Week.ReplyDelete
It should be very interesting to see if any change of tone and orientation on MY part causes any change in the generally dismal approach of too many respondents. Sorry to say it hasn't in the past. This experiment is little more than open attempt to break up an intellectual logjam.
You're always welcome to come here and spread some love around, Jerry. I wish you would.
I sincerely HOPE everyone will eventually see the HUMOR in what is taking place here this week.
Not to flatter myself too much, but I'm beginning to feel like something of a latter-day Jonathan Swift.
I promse you it will get worse, however, before it will get better.

The Genius Of The CrowdReplyDelete
--- Charles Bukowski
there is enough treachery, hatred violence absurdity in the average
human being to supply any given army on any given day
and the best at murder are those who preach against it
and the best at hate are those who preach love
and the best at war finally are those who preach peace
those who preach god, need god
those who preach peace do not have peace
those who preach peace do not have love
beware the preachers
beware the knowers
beware those who are always reading books
beware those who either detest poverty
or are proud of it
beware those quick to praise
for they need praise in return
beware those who are quick to censor
they are afraid of what they do not know
beware those who seek constant crowds for
they are nothing alone
beware the average man the average woman
beware their love, their love is average
but there is genius in their hatred
there is enough genius in their hatred to kill you
to kill anybody
not wanting solitude
not understanding solitude
they will attempt to destroy anything
that differs from their own
not being able to create art
they will not understand art
they will consider their failure as creators
only as a failure of the world
not being able to love fully
they will believe your love incomplete
and then they will hate you
and their hatred will be perfect
like a shining diamond
like a knife
like a mountain
like a tiger
their finest art
Always be aware of the fine line between good taste and sodomy.ReplyDelete
Lets not get off the point that we HATE ShawReplyDelete
Everyone must speak for himself, Anonymous. Unless you are using the Royal or Editorial "we," which I somehow doubt, you have no right to speak for the rest of us.ReplyDelete
Your friend, Bukowski, agrees with my late Mama, who expressed the same opinion, albeit in a far more direct fashion.
Mom often said, when we plowed through the daily grind together, as we often did when I was a little kid, "If thoughts could kill, there wouldn't be a soul left alive 30 seconds from now!" Then we'd chuckle and start giggling at the silliness of the thought.
HOWEVER, there was a large grain of Truth in it -- as I strongly suspected even at age eight or nine.
OK. I HATE. Shaw.ReplyDelete
Well, Anonymous, I glad you got that off your chest, and I hope you feel better now?ReplyDelete
Ms. Shaw, I'm sure will be just CRUSHED when she learns of your feelings -- NOT!
Haven't you learn that hatred causes corrosion in your body as it destroys your soul?
I disagree with Ms Shaw frequently, and we argue openly together a lot, but we are still able to be friends, because in areas outside politics we have a great deal in common.
HATRED is such a waste of time. I'm sorry you are burdened with such a self destructive emotion. I'm sure too that there is a great deal more to you than you've chose to share with us.
I hope you'll share your lighter, brighter side with us one day soon.

I just got off the phone with the US Postal Service. I hate them.ReplyDelete
They lost a gun part I ordered back in December. I received a letter from them today claiming they have an empty envelope with my address on it. They wonder if I know anything about it.
Of course I do! I only spoke to five different people in January who promised to call me back. No one ever called me back.
No one I spoke to knew anything about this. They asked why I was calling.
I told them "No reason. I'm just lonely and wanted to talk."
Next time I am inclined to call the USPS I will, instead, poke myself in the eye with a dull pencil...with far better results.
I love my postal carrier. Hate her boss.
You hate the Post Office ?Delete

Which GOP political operative accused a minority female politician of adultery, cast misogynist aspersions upon her during her campaign, and just recently said they needed to send her “back to wherever the hell she came from?”
He also called a prominent male politician "light in the loafers."

I had the same experience with SEARS by the way. It concerned a new refrigerator I bought six years ago. It was a lemon, and I spent four solid MONTHS on the phone nearly every day trying to get those stinking SOB's to make good their obligation to me. I never got the same person n the phone twice, and ALL of them spoke with thick foreign accents and were from remote places like Sakhalin Island, Pago Pago, Central Senegal, Patagonia, or Machu Pichu.
Before it was all over I became a SCREAMING MANIAC over the phone, and finally had to make a SCENE at the local SEARS, where of course they disclaimed any responsibility till I threatened to sue their asses off on general principles, and DEMANDED an interview with the CEO, or ELSE.
After four and half months of wrangling over a fridge that refused to make ice cubes -- while I was tending an aged invalid, who had regressed to childhood and had become unreasonably demanding -- SEARS finally delivered another refrigerator.
Upshot of that was they had the GALL to charge me an additional 200 bucks, AND the box they delivered did not have the bottom shelf for the door.
I didn't even bother to complain. I've just made do with what I have, and so far, the box is working well.
Needless to say I will NEVER EVER deal with SEARS again. They are no longer an AMERICAN company.
The last one of the SIX repairmen each of which I had to FIGHT for through Sakhalin Island -- or wherever -- to come to the house told me, "SEARS products are S-H-I-T. I would'nt have them in my home."
Now ain't THAT a fine recommendation -- and from the horse's own mouth yet?
ACH du LIEBER!
It all boils down to BUREAUCRACY. We've GOT to smash up the BUREAUCRATIC SYSTEM and restore things to intimate, personal, local levels again.

FT: 'However, the tragic case of Matthew Shepard was an isolated incident.'
"Bullshit. Violence against homosexuals, including violence severe enough to leave the victim dead or hospitalized, has been an ever-present part of gay life for generations. It's become considerably less common in the last couple of decades because it's less tolerated, but it still happens far too much.
"It's not possible that you are actually unaware of these things. You're a liar, and people like you and the kind of values you promote have enabled violence and murder for generations. So don't act genteel with me. You are filth and I hate your fucking guts."
Now, isn't that charming? And THIS came AFTER I had posted remarks in generous SUPPORT of Gay Marriage, which I don't REALLY care about one way or the other, but would never lift a finger to clock.

It should be plain that I DESPISE the people who categorically revile you -- and spend their time making negative remarks about anything and everything. Normally, I delete them as soon as I see them. This week I decided to SHOWCASE them for all the world to see.
Maybe they'll wake up and see themselves as others see them -- but probably they won't. In either case it's no skin off my nose. Certainly none of this has been intended to hurt YOU.
People who show themselves to be unfit to clean my boots could NEVER hurt my feelings -- nor should they be able to hurt yours. You're much too good for that.

Your full comment:
"However, the tragic case of Matthew Shepard was an isolated incident. Horrible in the extreme, but like Timothy McVeigh -- the left wing's favorite terrorist -- an isolated case. I'd say the same for that poor black man who was chained to a pickup truck and dragged to his death over stony, thorny ground -- one of the most despicable cases ever recorded. I feel ashamed I can't remember the man's name. But AGAIN it was a tragic ISOLATED case,"
...try these isolated cases...it would have been easy enough for you to google them yourself:
cut & paste and peruse at you leisure.
again.... your little 'experiment' here is ah, juvenile, puerile, or at best sophomoric. Further...most of the 'anon' comments seen to fit your own syntax and style. If that is true, and I do suspect so, then the aforementioned criticism is very valid. Please... do something else. The greatest sin of a writer is to be boring. Sin no more.
A Waste of TimeReplyDelete
A penchant to be disputatious
Foments an atmosphere ungracious.
Defaulting e’er to ridicule
Reveals an urge to fight a duel.
Recognizing others’ worth,
Showing just a trace of mirth,
Acknowledgement of others’ virtue
Helps bridge gaps, and could not hurt you.

Clear, concise, brief and succinct.
Engaging in a barroom brawl
Does no one any good at all.
