Mr Bama, why the reticence? Surely this doesn't stem from the minority v majority issue?
I really wish this place could see past nationality and political affiliation for just once. But Scarlett reckons tomorrow is another day, so lets see eh?

i understand that you, diamond, support president bush, but if his administration/policies/decisions come under attack, i ask that you please provide why you don't accept what is being posted about. educate us on what you see bush doing, then we can have more progression.

I emphatically disagree with this:

If someone has a problem with the policies/decisions/administration of President Bush and he comes under attack, then the person with the disagreement (posting the attack) should provide PROOF of what they have a problem with. Rather than post their opinion of him which is not fact and then we have to educate you? example:

Bush is a drug user

or

Bush = Hitler

I use these because they are reoccuring themes in here that are acceptable to the majority.

Thus, why should the few members of the forum who like Bush always be on the defensive?

Yet should we post documented fact about a certain leader(s) most of you seem to like ( unlike those few of us who "blindly follow Bush" ) there is usually an uprising where one of us will get warned, thread closed, and even worse.

Out of the many times I have been personally attacked in here, I have generally dealt with it myself without asking the mods for help. Out of the few times I have asked the mods for help the majority of the time I have been ignored or I got in trouble myself.

I was wondering too; IF pinkfloyd says "bomb z edge" is this acceptable? Or will I just get into trouble for asking?

No Z Edge, it is NOT ok for someone, anyone, to make a comment like that re: "Bomb Z Edge now". This is the 3rd time you have brought this up now. And regarding this, it is the only thing I am disagreeing with: the number of times you are bringing this up in the public forum. Has your point been made? If not, lets state for everyone here: Comments of this nature will not be tolerated. It goes both ways. Z Edge, it is impossible for anyone to tell, apart from blatant outright attacks, what is offensive to you. That goes for anyone. Deathbear as well, enough of the name calling BS.

When did someone ask you to post documented fact? It is not a requirement of this forum to come bearing hard evidence. If you want to refute whatever someone says, do it.

See, I am getting hasseled for bringing it up. POINT PROVEN, thanks Angela.

So then, it is still okay to say:

Bush is a drug user

and

Bush = Hitler



And if you take offense to that you will get into trouble, simply put.

I am not hassling you at all. You made a claim and I wanted to know what specifically you were talking about. You didnt answer the question. No one ever has to prove anything they say. If someone wants to claim that bush takes drugs, FINE. You are more than entitled to ask them to show you some fact. They dont HAVE to. if they cant back it up, they will look like a trouble maker/liar. Why do you think this goes against you? If someone wants to make such a grand claim, let them Z Edge, because if they cant back it up, who is the laugh on? You or them? Not you I dont think.
I have not proved any point of yours, because you still aren't answering what I'm asking. I am more sick of the Bush=Hitler crap than you may be, remember that.
I am totally sick to death of people comparing the 2. If people dont want to prove it, fine, they again will look like they are just making grand sweeping statements about nothing. Why are you getting defensive at me now? Im not getting at you for anything I didnt think....

Is it ok to say those examples you posted? Is it not ok? People in here can say what they want, but be it on their head. If it is out of line, it will be dealt with. If someone claims something concrete about the President, fine. If someone asks them to prove it and they cant, they dont look exactly legit for it do they? let their words speak for them Z Edge. Are you claiming you are offended by every negative remark or blatant lie someone posts about the pres? What do you want done? All these threads closed so there is no anti Bush commentary? Do you want all the people banned who make these comments/lies? Suggest we get rid of anyone who does not support this war, or does not support your president?


The rest is just opinion. Argue your opinion til the cows come home. Attack someone, and get the treatment it deserves. Post a lie or bold untruth about something, and look like the BS'er you are. get flamed for it. Post a contrary opinion and participate in the debate that will follow.

We cant stop anyone from saying anything they want in here. We just have to clean it up once its said.

Z edge and everyone, go ahead and claim whatever the hell you want. If someone wants some evidence or proof, be prepared to show it, or look like a liar. Say that Bush takes drugs. If you can prove it, show it. If you cant, be prepared to look like a liar. its quite simple really.

Im going to bed. The alien baby needs sleep apparently.

Cant keep up with me it seems.

i don't like when people call bush hitler. which would be why i changed the title of this thread because it had nothing to do with "bush similar to hitler," it dealt with propaganda useage.

if you take offense to it, say it. please keep it to the issue, please do not attack people for their beliefs. moreover, talk about the issue presented in the thread NOT past issues.

we urge you to keep fym nice. i don't want to see it taken away.
