But that's the thing:  it does.

Let's say I'm having a Super Bowl party and I decide to invite you, rossi.  I send you an Evite.  You respond no, and in the commentary section, you say, "I fucking hate your guts, your house sucks, and your dog smells!  Why would you think in a million years I would attend your stupid Super Bowl party!?!"

Now, couldn't you have just resonded "no" and left it at that?  Why would you feel the need to let everybody on my invite list know your personal feelings towards me unless your were (a) a jackass, or (b) an attention whore?  You just turned my innocuous Evite into something it wasn't nor should it have ever been.

The moral of this story?  I'm not having a Super Bowl party this year.

You were fine until you made that last post, then you went off the rails again.  If you can find anything in Thomas' statement remotely like "I hate your fucking guts" I'll eat my monitor.  He basically did just say no.  He didn't hold a press conference and eat Obama's dog.


Look rossi, I know you're a bright guy, and you've known me long enough to know how I write on these message boards; so don't play dumb and try to make my posts out to be somehting they're not.

I never said Thomas said that he hated Obama's guts.  I was using that for illustrative effect, saying saying YOU saying that to ME in an EVITE that was completely unrelated to anything that you wrote that it would not too dissimilar than the initial statement he released.  That's what it was about, and you know it.

Furthermore, I don't know if you didn't read/have forgotten his initial statement (which was posted right on page 4 of this very thread), but you're your sake, I'll post it again:

"I believe the Federal government has grown out of control, threatening the Rights, Liberties, and Property of the People.

This is being done at the Executive, Legislative, and Judicial level. This is in direct opposition to the Constitution and the Founding Fathers vision for the Federal government.

Because I believe this, today I exercised my right as a Free Citizen, and did not visit the White House. This was not about politics or party, as in my opinion both parties are responsible for the situation we are in as a country. This was about a choice I had to make as an INDIVIDUAL.
"

Sure sounds like he's calling out somebody to me.  So now...why was this necessary?

Again, that example does not fit what happened at all. He declined and didn't say anything.

Not true.  Read my post above to rossi.

Never once did I imply he was hostile to Obama.  If anything, I said he was hostile to the idea of the PotUS as a whole.

Well, where did that crazy ass example of "fuck you, I fucking hate your guts and want eveyrone to know it" come from? His statemnt was VERY different that that. he specifically said it's about things going on in all branches of Government and in both parties and the statement was very civil.

 

Same question about your statements about pissing on things and breaking things. You ARE adding a hostile and personal element that simply isn't there. IN fact, the OPPOSITE is there. He is showing big respect for the offices of government by feeling so strongly about what is being done within it. Whether you believe that is his true motivation or not, it is his stated motivation and he has done nothing remotely like the hateful, disrespectful things you keep citing as analogies.

Jesus Christ, if you guys aren't going to bother to read my posts all the way through/try to understand what I'm saying, it's clear I'm wasting my time in this thread.

Done.

No, you are the one who isn't trying to play aoong. I did read your post and it was ridiculous. You keep pretending that he did things he did not do. Please show me an example of the disrespect you keep claiming is there. And try to do it without making up a scenario that isn't even close to what actually happened.

 

.. Or make another statement claiming that you are just trolling and don't really care one way or the other, like you did th eother day, because that makes much more sense than thinking you actually believe these irrelevant analogies you keep making.

And why the hell are your panties all in a wad anyways?  I can smell the spittle all over your computer screen from here.

The best thing about this thread is, after you play Murray to rossi's Carvelli, seeing how worked up I can get you.  Mission accomplished.

Oh yeah....and you're not invited to my Super Bowl party either.  You and rossi can just go eat buffalo wings and drink Nattie Lite together all night long for all I care.

Yeah, and as I stated earlier in the thread, the Canadian flag is a better lay than these guys.  If you tell me that's not true, I'll eat my monitor.

Thomas identifies himself as something between a Libertarian and a Tea Partier.

Drank with him at a couple Bruins parties - nice enough guy.

Well you knew it was just a matter of time but a Montreal writer now says that racism was behind Thomas no-showing at the White House.

Was that seriously in the paper there, or just on-line? Either way, The Gazette needs to fire their writer and the story editor real quick, since that is a big time libel case that Thomas will easily win right there.

I went to the actual story linked, and they already edited it (and say they edited it right at the top)... I hope some one was able to get a screen shot of it.

I was reading about how Fox News has upped its anti-Obama rhetoric so much they're in danger of alienating normal, sensible Republican voters - but assholes like this guy clearly buy into it.


I think respect is earned, and although I disagree with Obama on several points, he's earned enough respect to get a handshake from most people, I'd say. Bush I don't think did; Clinton maybe (he did get rid of the debt, after all); Bush snr. I suppose (didn't really do anything, one way or the other); Reagan yes, if only for making some cool remarks about UFOs.

 

They've all done bad things, but we need to calm this shit down a little.

 

Disagree with the President all you like, but this just helps no-one. It alienates those Republicans who believe in sane, reasonable debate and respect; it alienates every Democrat supporter; and only feeds further into the ridiculous bullshit spewed by the Tea Party and the scumbags who pander to them.
