  1. The nature of a thing is determined by what it does, not by its name. We all know that the National Socialist party of the 30s and 40s in Germany, the Nazis, were not socialists. Despite their name, they acted like and were a right wing fascist dictatorship. This collection of forums isn't a liberal forum, despite the name. Judge by the tiny volume of posts by liberals in LO, compared to the huge volume of trash by those you can't when dignify as conservatives. Comparing volume, this is a "trash liberals" forum. In NHB, the poster "laton", is "WillFranklin" by his own admission and everyone's knowledge. He has been advocating for a final solution, with camps. He hides the obvious meaning behind the chiffon veil of "re-education camps", as though you can't discern his true meaning. ( redacted xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx) Them he posts, as "laton" in this Liberals Only room as though he's a liberal, here. So he has now established, for you, this logic: (redacted xxxxxxxx) Do you like that? And in NHB, the people who are generally right wing nuts are occupying the moral high ground. This is not a liberal forum despite the name. This is a forum of mostly right wing fools insulting a few liberals, (redacted xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx) This collective website of mostly conservatives, tolerates a (redacted xxxxxxxx) posting in the Liberals Only room. I don't. Goodbye.
  2. Republicans have realized something. Most people don't reason. Most people go with what sounds good. What sounds good to people who don't reason? Whatever you hear touted over and over. It's the basic rationale behind advertising to people who don't think. Most people are only marginally smarter than houseplants and Republicans have "got what plants crave".
  3. Sure. But it's like any other tech that's been overtaken by advances. People still collect LPs, muskets, antique cars, coins stamps, whatever. The worth isn't in what it does, because time measurement had moved on. The worth is partly in the look of it, as decoration, and partly in the nostalgia if people with money. But you can't buy back your childhood.
  4. It's halftime at the Sooperbole, where it's San Francisco Sourdough Loaves against the Kansas City Pulled Porkers. Whichever team moves in a way that most resembles the gyrations of Shakira's butt, wins. Boy, is it ever boring. 😒
  5. Sounds like with some garlic, salt, and cayenne it would be really tasty. I'm led to believe that the draw isn't the fruit. But I'm 63, and my testosterone has become a memory, so ... the fruit is looking awfully good. Here's her video:
  6. Yep. 🥺 But the clever and quiet know what to do, when disruption wreaks hell on the lives of the poor. The clever and quiet know where to seek shelter when the blizzard of change blows cold on grandeur. When extremists at all ends are afraid for their lives, those with middle-class values will continue to thrive. - Ignatz Laripu
  7. Since quoting poets is an acceptable means of communication: "Now you can say that I've grown bitter but of this you may be sure The rich have got their channels in the bedrooms of the poor" - Leonard Cohen.
  8. It doesn't make you a more attractive human being. It makes you a target for cheaters and thieves. It takes a worthy person to discern a worthy person. It only takes users to discern a rich fool. I see from this that the thread was misnamed. It should have been "10 ways to make yourself a more attractive human being to worthy people".
  9. Elly May was a beautiful dog. Gorgeous ears. I'm sure she loved you.
  10. For the sake of the country and the world, I hope that's true.
  11. First, I don't think we need to define it. We can know immorality when we see it. Taking children away form refugee parents and housing them, caged, in camps: I have no quibble with calling that immoral. Secondly, if the left abandons talk of morality, it will only be talked about by the right, and then, what they say about it, goes. I'm not ready to give up that field of battle.
  12. I think you may have misunderstood me. What I meant was that there were two different things going on in the 50s and 60s. One was unions + meaningful taxes (and consequently middle class prosperity) and the other was violent racial discrimination. The MAGA crowd seems to want to return to the discrimination part of the 50s and 60s. They are certainly not clamoring for unions and higher taxes on the ultra rich. But I didn't express it very well. In my defense, I probably wasn't completely awake yet.
  13. NHB is No Holds Barred forum. Very little of merit happens there. It's about people insulting each other. As I recall, they're fond of "shît-stain" as an insult.
  14. Right. So in the coming election, that's the position that must be hung around their necks: that the president is corrupt like a mobster and the Senate Republicans are enablers of that corruption. The election should sweep them out of Congress and Trump out of the White House.
  15. I'm not sure whether this happened, but it would be pretty funny. Story here.

No holds barred chat

  • Hey kfools.. does this help? 


  • By Vegas

    Liberals are going to hell.


  • grgle



  • Where’s at @slideman?


  • Hola


  • I know this one, this new chat thing. I've seen it called the "shoutbox" among other things in my past. Very hard to hide from the chat box. The question is asked, there's no time to go search what other folks think, this is real time. Only seconds should be between chat box replies. This one is made for me. In the chat box one has to be quick on their feet with stuff at the ready. This chat box is the worst nightmare of anyone trying to deal with ol' teach.

    hey @teacher that sounds like too much work for me LOL I need that useless thing called *time* in order to authenticate facts and truths which get posted by deceitful Dems


  • What does the red number refer to? currently, on my screen it says 2

     


  • Where does it say 2?


  • So. In the chat....if you tag a member the text afterwards should be a private message. 


  • How do? I'm teacher. If I'm online and the powers that be can figure out how to make it immediately apparent to me that whatever I've said here has been replied to I'm gonna show up right quick and kick some teeth in. It's the chat box, all this is new and scary. I know this gig. This starts now. 



  • Hey kfools, did you lose your securtiy cert? On my browser it is saying your site is not secure?


  • Mine too. I'm looking into it.


  • Mine too. 


  • I thought it was my location.. 


  • Just gave to renew the security cert. No big deal I'll do it tonight


  • OK thanks

     



  • Happy Anniversary, America... on your Civil Union.

    Scroll the other way for a while and you'll see me saying that these days the chat box ain't gonna work as one has to be quick on one's feet. The question is posed, there ain't no stinkin time for ya'll to refer to your betters for the answer, ya'll don't understand these things, this political debate, ya'll don't have the answer at hand, ya'll haven't thought this through, ya'll ain't ready for the next question I'll ask,  ya'll can't handle the pace that a bloke such as I can bring it in the chat box, ya'll can't handle this format.

     

    This one is made for me.
