“That I rightly ridicule you does not mean that I am obliged to interact with you in any other way. The revisionist nonsense you write is proof enough that facts and rational thought will not penetrate your dense skull anyhow.”

“An individual's chance to get killed by other people was 2,000 times higher than what they are today, in biblical times. If this doesn't qualify as "we are getting better", then I don't know what does.”

“No, I'm highlighting the fact that you think you are the arbiter of objectivism.”

Aleks Hunter on Apr 10, 2014 at 20:42:03

“Not an arbiter, just an observer. An objective observer. He inserts his own views into almost all of what he writes. That is not objective, nor is it real journalism.
Oh by the way its objectivity, not objectivism. The latter is the philosophy of Ayn Rand. See that is an objective statement. If I said objectivism is the cockamamie philosophy of Ayn Rand, that would be subjective.”

“Rofl. Greenwald wasn't even a supporter when the Iraq war started. Please point to a single instance where he ever supported or defended it in any way.

Whatever he did or not regarding Hale, he did it as an attorney, not a journalist. Read up, you've been propagandized.”

Aleks Hunter on Apr 10, 2014 at 20:49:07

“"I was ready to stand behind President Bush and I wanted him to exact vengeance on the perpetrators and find ways to decrease the likelihood of future attacks. During the following two weeks, my confidence in the Bush administration grew as the president gave a series of serious, substantive, coherent, and eloquent speeches that struck the right balance between aggression and restraint...
"I had not abandoned my trust in the Bush administration. Between the president’s performance in the wake of the 9/11 attacks, the swift removal of the Taliban in Afghanistan, and the fact that I wanted the president to succeed, because my loyalty is to my country and he was the leader of my country, I still gave the administration the benefit of the doubt. I believed then that the president was entitled to have his national security judgment deferred to, and to the extent that I was able to develop a definitive view, I accepted his judgment that American security really would be enhanced by the invasion of this sovereign country." -- Glenn Greenwald.”

“Rofl. Your whole persona here is based on a holiert-than-thou template.

And drinking alcohol inherently comes with negative consequences; the spectrum goes from bad breath to fatal liver malfunction, from a dozen lost brain cells to driving a school bus over the cliff. Your 'fully functional definition' is neither functional nor a definition, in any relevant sense. It's just made-up, arbitrary, holier-than-thou nonsense.”

“But spare yourself embarrassment and do not share that arbitrary thing. The shorthand definition I provided is used in actual alcohol and drug treatment settings.”

“You clearly need to look up the definition of the term 'alcoholic', Stephen holier-than-thou Stafford.”

Stephen Stafford on Mar 31, 2014 at 13:41:04

“As I live and breathe, I think you just delivered one of them hominy grits attacks against me!

I don't need to look up that at all. I just gave a fully functional definition. When a person contiues to drink in spite of negative consequences, that person indeed is an alcoholic. I worked in this arena for years.

Now back to my bruised feelings. Everyone knows I am one of you people. I would not even know how to play like I am holier than you riff raffery.

Hmpf.”
