It goes both ways. I'm not going to defend the close-mindedness of boomer Republicans. But the point is that liberals, more than conservatives, are reluctant to engage in political debate because they have been conditioned to not tolerate opposing views. The Fox News boomers are similar in their solipsism, but at least they don't shy away from talking shit out. Liberals are beginning to disparage the discourse itself, behaving as if engaging with conservatives itself is a racist or intolerable gesture. 

Which liberals?

 

I listen to debates in Youtube.  Lotta Libs debating cons there. 
 

Now if you are talking about some militant progressives on campus then ya I agree. And libs and progs hate it too. 
 

Remember, cons did the witch-hunting most of the twentieth century.

I get that, and I recognize that that's a documented phenomenon: people retreating to their echo-chambers (liberals more than conservatives, but in general, everyone seems to be doing this). That's why I thought it would be great to curate a space like this where we encourage cross-political interaction, even if that means being overtly friendly with our political opposition just as a means of creating meaningful exchanges and discussion. That's what I thought we were trying to do with the clean debate room. 

 

If they are interested in debate or engagement why make the excuse if leaving based on not having thier own space?

 

That space is a net drag. It kept all members down by giving a preference to one group.

 

Remember they went to a copy cat site. This is because they wanted the status quo. Our site can't be held hostage from change so that two or three members who scream want it to be the same.

 

That's what was hapening.Try to remember that NOW they have gone to a copy cat site and that site is held hostage by thier needs.  Give us an LO forum or else. 

 

The Liberals who want to engage stay...the ones that just wanted to room lurk and trash the site left.

 

These guys been here forever,let them be on thier way. The quality members we want come daily. Watch. 

 

Let the destroyers go destroy. The only one I was actually sorry to see leave was olivaw. He was a good guy. It happens. No sense crying about it now. We will just keep building.

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.


  • All lives matter.


  • Double post deleted.

    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.

    Being offended does not make one correct.
