    THE FORUM MASCOTT...
    I'll tell you one thing...if that cow gets into office we will see not only massive erosions in our gun rights, but our national average intellect will go shaply downwards as well. Just like during the Bill Clinton years...there were people who actually bought into that cr*p that ol slick willie was putting out.

    The old communist line of thought... Tell a lie often enough and people will start believing it.

    Don't know his duties, but the uniform says 82nd ABN Div, and that he is an Airborne qualified (Paratrooper) soldier.

    Is is just me, or do you think that the soldier in this picture was better served to simply and politely decline the photo op, than making coded hand jestures designed to belittle her? I almost think that what he did somehow tarnishes him in some way, more than it does her... by accepting the photo op and then doing the finger cross.

    Perhaps I'm making something out of nothing, but I think its more impolite to shake hands and participate in a photo op in this way, than to decline altogether.

    Where am I going wrong?

    I don't agree, Pat, if he refused, her handlers would have scrounged around to find another "dupe." She could care LESS about him or any other soldiers, EXCEPT in the context of what it does for HER.

    This way, in his own small way, he has made a statement that speaks VOLUMES, that is much more effective than "staying silent." I'd say he is showing his intelligence AND "quick thinking skills..." HE get's it.

    Too many of us "stay silent," when we should "ENGAGE the B@st@rds," as Wildcat pilots were told on their way to the Coral Sea, because "They (it applies to either Zeroes OR Liberals) are "Flying 'paper kites' that can't take a hit!"

    Pat, The soldier may not have had a choice. As a former Sailor, I was forced to do things I did not want to do, with a smile. :(

    You're not going left, are you? :D
  15. I must heartily and most unqualifiedly agree with Polish on this one, as shocking as that may sound. :D ;) Seriously, Hillary was looking only for a photo op. Well, she found one, and more power to the soldier who had the hutzpa to let his true feelings show through. :cool:

    That he used a commonly recognised 'Duress' signal, and her publicist failed to see or recognise it, speaks volumes.
    The lad done GOOD, Pat; leave it be.

    Notwithstanding recent insults to the contrary, I'm as conservative as ever... perhaps more so. I'm just very sensitive about conservatives unwittingly embracing "liberal" behaviors either in public discourse or in their outlook.

    I have found liberals to be largely without class, refinement, courtesy, kindness, warmth, and respect. They are gloomy, morose, bitter, rude, loud, pessimistic, negative, illogical, and guilt-ridden.

    I realize my opinion differs from those here about the soldier in the picture above. But liberals do disrepectful, rude things - not conservatives. We may hate your guts, but we can't behave like snotty jerks to make the point. I guess it's the slippery slope theory... if we're judging it ok to be rude to people we don't like (Hilary) then it's a short walk to all sorts of liberal wacko behavior.

    I am reflecting as I am writing this, and I think I have an insight as to why I feel the way I do. I was once renowned for being publicly confrontational and sometimes rude to people I disagreed with, and I'm filled with regret for my immaturity and foolishness.

    Has anyone ever heard of the ultra-liberal Congresswoman from South Florida named Debbie Wasserman-Shultz? Look her up, she's a real gem. Back in the day, she was a state representative known for the most goofy, inane legislation that one could concoct. She once proposed to rewrite all Florida law in gender neutral language. So, I publicly renamed her Debbie WasserPERSON-Shultz, and challenged her to a debate. After months and months of refusing, I asked a mutual friend to arm twist her to come on my show. She finally agreed. I skewered her for a solid two hours on the air. I was brash, rude, overbearing, insulting, and grossly impolite. She came in looking very together, and left looking disheveled as if she'd gone three rounds with Chuck Lidell. At the end, when my theme music was playing, I took a final, un-Chistianlike swipe at her, and her eyes welled up with tears. and she looked at me as if I had crushed her spirit. As she left the studio, she turned to say that she'd never been treated so poorly in her life. She asked me, "what did I ever do to derserve such cruelty?" My producer later told me that she sobbed all the way to her car.

    I was crestfallen. I wanted to crawl up into a corner and die. I realized the gravity of my mistake. I had defeated my opponent, but at what cost? I had won the debate but injured my soul and reputation. I had pointed out her errors in a way that caused me to lose the respect of my friends AND opponents. Even my fellow talk show hosts rebuked me publicly for the "chilling effect" it would have on us booking future guests. I received more death threats from that one program than all my time on the radio combined. In short, I screwed up royally by acting like a liberal, a viscious son-of-a-bitch, and I tarnished myself in the process. So, did I really win? No, I lost badly, and I never behaved that way again.

    To this very day, I wish I could see Cong. Wasserman-Shultz in person, shake her hand, look her in the eyes, and beg her forgiveness. In fact, maybe I'll write a letter to her and stop in to see her when I'm in Washington next (if she'll see me). I could have won easily without being rude, or ill-mannered, or mean. Oh, she's still a wacked out leftist for sure, but she and Hilary Clinton, are due courtesy from me, and all genuine conservatives, no matter the setting.

    If we cannot win the debate, and compel others to join with us, solely by the powerful logic of our arguments, then we have lost the debate before it even began.

    Yes Bruce, I'm remain firmly conservative. But perhaps one who is a bit more kind and circumspect on how I share my conservatism with others. I'm doing pennance for past transgressions.

    Pat, you are a better man than I. I'm so fed up w/ all the Lib crap I put up w/ on a daily basis, here in Kalifornia. I'm afraid I am beginning to sink to their level. :(

    Pat, I truly appreciate how you feel, and think you are a heck of a man for telling us about it, much less wanting to right what you percieve as a wrong ....

    BUT, (And I KNOW the old joke, "The Road to Heaven is clogged by all those big BUTS...")

    I think there is a difference, when confronting Liberals DIRECTLY. While I agree we have to sway the "undecideds" to our side, and they may be turned off by such confrontation, I am NOT advocating stuping to their level with the lies, "Character Assasinations," Politics of Personal Destruction, et al....


    But we MUST react, and not stay silent, when we ARE sucker punched by the bully...NOT by fightiing fire with fire, BUT at the very least by "setting the limits" that we will tolerate. We CAN passionately defend against, and even attack the lies and attacks, without necessarily being mean or rude.

    President George Bush, yes I respect for trying to keep the Presidency "above the fray," but WHERE has that got him...MORE vitriol and hatred, MORE lies and attacks, not LESS.

    I think that is one of HIS, and OUR mistakes...assuming many of the left, and in fact many of the "middle," are SOPHISTICATED enough to appreciate the "class act," turning the other cheek always....

    No, we have all seen how lies, unchallenged, and repeated enough, especially with our lovely Liberal MEDIA that will not do THEIR job of challenging claims by BOTH sides, which WE as Conservatives would WELCOME, but instead will just repeat it, with NO forceful alternative presented PUBLICLY, DO become accepted as the "truth," by much of the PUBLIC.


    And we've ALSO seen how "turning the other cheek" for example to International terrorism, DIDN'T make us safer, it led to MORE hits until 9/11....And I'm not SURE that extreme Socialist Liberalism is NOT as dangerous to American Freedoms.

    "Turning the other cheek" to Liberals likewise got us the election results of '06....

    No, you stand up to the bully, and ENGAGE Liberals....it has the same effect, they CANNOT stand up to aggressive reason....granted, delivered WITHOUT the hate.

    I have a GOOD friend who I have known and worked with in several jobs since 1982, and we still stay in touch, as friends. But he is a "FLAMING" Lib, albeit not a VISCIOUS one (Except when refering to REPUBLICANS....:p )...and we have had MANY "veins busting in our heads" arguments about everything from Abortion to Gore v. Bush 2000. We have hopefully caused the other to THINK a little harder about our arguments and positions. But MORE importantly, we remain FRIENDS to this day.

    It CAN be done.
