so, I have been promoted to 'the opposition' now

very good

still, I'd like to point out (because I don't like your interpretation of the truth) that my statement wasn't directed at all conservatives, nor was it directed at a couple of conservatives, frankly not even at 2 conservatives

it was solely directed at you Bubba


have a nice vacation

Due to your immensely long posts and pages of opinions on various issues, It's also nice to know that you are more than a Cheerleader.

Are we fighting the good fight? I wasn't aware we were fighting a fight to begin with... let alone call it THE good fight.

Oh well. All I'm saying is that all of these moral implications are tedious as they are patronising. Comments such as the 'good fight' are as silly as 'defending a just and merciful God'. I wish people just stuck to their arguments, without having the urge to inject morality in order to appease the vein of self-importance.

I'd post it here, but I'd expect a deluge of hate mail from other people which I really don't want to read.

Don't worry--there's still hope for you.

Chill out!!! Did you think I was being sarcastic? I was being sincere with melon. He takes an undeserved beating in this forum for simply believing the fact that ALL of us deserve equal rights, respect and dignity. He stands up for what I believe to be "the good fight." It's not a reference to anything in particular. I just think that his way of thinking and his passion for free speech and equal rights FOR EVERYONE should be recognized as a "good" thing. Melon doesn't have an agenda to suppress any opposing ideas or arguments. He should be commended for taking a stand.

Bubba, take care of yourself. Get your blood pressure checked. Go to a spa. Get a massage. Watch your favorite funny movies over and over again. There's a kinder, gentler Bubba in there, I just know it.

Well thanks, I respect you, also. I often don't agree with you, but except for a couple of times, we've pretty much always treated each other with respect.

"We are right." ROTFLMAO I guess they have never taught modesty at the proverbial "Rush Limbaugh School of Conspiracy"? And, once again, this thread reeks of Rushisms, most laughably in how you paste yourself and your fellow conservatives in the same brush as the long-suffering, Biblical Job--the same tactic Rush has used from the beginning, despite the fact it would be very far-fetched to classify him as a literary underdog.

As you might have expected, I've caught on to your little game a long time ago:

--Dominate your enemies. If you can't tackle them, then resort to personal attacks and issues of "distortion" to side-track the conversation that you can't argue, saving face. Hopefully, you'll confuse and exhaust your opponent into shutting up, henceforth with you winning the argument by default.

--If your argument doesn't make much sense, paint your opponent as not making any sense.

--When you're done bullying the forum, paint yourself as the ultimate victim; and paint those you attacked as the "oppressors."

Nice try, Bubba, but in reading all of your comments since September 11th in this forum and others, you are HARDLY a victim. And when you come back, I'll be waiting to take on your issues just as much as I always have.

Have a good vacation from the forum.

Melon

Best thing I've read here all day.
