Thread: Another disgusting idea from the left

  1. #1

    Default Another disgusting idea from the left

    Only the left would do such a thing.

    http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2009...-chamber-boss/

    Just like Larry Flint's offer from earlier time.

    I would like to see you find a similar idea from the right.

    I will say it again. What the left disagrees with, the left will attempt to destroy.

    Disgusting!

    I seem to remember conservatives having their panties in a bunch over the Chamber of Commerce, calling it the largest trade union in the world, and calling for its dissolution. Funny how times change!

    That's a bit different than putting a bounty on a person. Nothing has changed.
    I would expect even you to have a problem with this concept.

    I do have a problem with it. I was just pointing out yet more hypocrisy.

    Both sides have had their political hacks trolling for skeletons of their opponents, often with financial incentives. On one hand, this is an example of free press, and informatics being used to gather useful information....on the other, it can represent abuse of such tools. How it is viewed, likely depends on who's ox is getting gored.

    Disgusting!
    Kind of reminds me of Exxon Mobile offering scientists $10K+ each to undermine the best climate science.

    My guess is that the head of the chamber is probably more worried about the fact that Nike, Apple, Excelon, PNM Resources, PG & E and other companies are leaving because of the chambers stance on climate change policies.

    You can say it again and again but the exact same thing could be said of the right. Hannity, O'Reily, Beck, and Limbaugh have been very successful demonizing many individuals, groups, and public policies (Acorn, scientists, socialism anyone, health care policy) all to destroy something that they do not agree with. Shall I post some of the many transcripts and we compare the record? How about you just take a look at the title of the topics on this discussion forum. Could you maybe find some posts that suggest those on the right are out to destroy individuals, groups, or policies? Maybe I should make a list of my favorites.

    OK let me say it slowly. The article talks about offering a bounty for info that leads to his arrest and I will ask this again where has the right ever used this tactic?

    Personal attacks on ones character flaws or views are one thing but fishing for info by offering a reward is another or can't you see there is a difference?

    You want to attack Rush for his drug addiction, have at it. You want to attack politicians for affairs feel free, but go after the head of the chamber of commerce because you disagree on his climate views, then your an idiot that has no moral compass and your probably a democrat.

    This is why the left disgusts me but I tolerate them.

    My mother, a life long republican, finds herself disgusted as well... but she allows herself to tolerate them regardless, but then she is my mother. I forgive her. N' you too, c3r.

    Did you just call me an idiot?
    Did anyone mentioned Rush or anyone else?
    I have no moral compass? By who's standards....yours?

    I'm sorry the left disgusts you so much. Maybe since today commerates a day that was monumental in our history, and happened to be dealt with by a democrat, and won 4 years later by another, you should go live somewhere else, where you can be proud. Not that I want anyone to leave, but I just hate to see someone so disgusted by 60% of their fellow citizens. I've befriended many fellow independents, and have learned to accept the left and right, even if one of those groups is hell bent on calling me names and trying to exclude everyone but themselves from the American way of life.

    Too bad...had she been a Dem, I'm sure there are several here that would have loved to have assisted in a partial birth abortion. I'm sure a 1cc syringe would have been ample.

    com'on now JD...even you gotta admit that one was kinda cute

    Well, just kinda. Don't hold back though now, dback. Tell me what you really think. C'mon now boy. You can do it. Let loose. My mom can handle it.
