Senate Democrats Schedule Vote On Patricia Millett Nomination For Appeals Court

Senate Democrats Schedule Vote On Patricia Millett Nomination For Appeals Court

Commented Dec 10, 2013 at 11:10:25 in Politics

“"You do not know what facts or honor are. Your party cheated and soiled its honor with its hypocrisy - and you embrace it!"

I can continue correcting your second-class use of the English language, if you'd like to stop publicly embarrassing yourself, as you have said another person posting is doing.

Free of charge.

Look.

Do you really think you're accomplishing anything but exposing how much the GOP losses these past few years is eating you up? Your sour grapes are incessant. And you have nothing productive to offer. Just sour grapes.

Yes, you are embarrassing yourself, or you should be embarrassed, rather.”

“I'm always amused by those who feel the need to go around correcting other spelling and grammar - a sure sign of an O/C disorder and low self esteem. No charge on the diagnosis...

Do you really think that your post does anything more then show how desperate is your lame attempt to deflect from the reality of the blatant hypocrisy and power grab by your Dembeggar brethren? Not only is that embarrassing for you, but laughable in both it's failure and worthless content.”

“You're guilty of willful ignorance…not to mention abusing the English language.”

“I see your O/C disorder requires you to follow me around and throw juvenile insults. This after being taken to task and embarrassed in your gay thread. Too funny!”

“I agree with one thing you post…You have no desire to explore facts because you are willfully ignorant and fueled by animus.

I have asked you to explain what facts I have missed and under any and all circumstances you have merely dismissed me.

That speaks for itself.

You are here to convey malice and that is all. Anti-gay animus. That is all.”

“Nope - I convey the truth. The fact that you don't like it and it hurts is your problem, not mine.”

“I ask you to elaborate on your post and you say I deserve dismissal?

No, sir or madam. You run away when challenged because you have nothing of substance with which to respond.

You're most transparent.

How predictable. You're a hit-and-run poster who has no desire to discuss or debate. Very familiar with your type.

Good day.”

“Can you Obama-bashers just knock it off already? I'm not thrilled with him, though I don't regret voting for him…twice.

But this isn't the forum. People are coming to this page to gain insight into how to help others who struggle with depression and mental health obstacles.

Please?”

If you are here to truly discuss issues, why don't you explain EXACTLY why this is over my head?

Go ahead. Let's see if you can actually debate instead of merely dismissing and condescending sans substance.”

“How have I proved your point by illustrating how this man's assessment of my life and the lives of other gay people is utterly WRONG? Please do explain how I "proved your point?"

Because his words have been taken by me as being hurtful, your point about the truth hurting is correct?

Get some critical thinking skills.”

“It's harsh indeed to try to stigmatize and demonize an entire group of people by painting them as opportunistic parasites, when that view is based on (alleged) isolated incidents.

I resent this man's harsh and UTTERLY INACCURATE analysis, as a gay man in excellent health…who is 45 years old and who has never sought taking advantage of the system.

And to have my orientation reduced to an issue of self-destructive addiction, well, yes, that is most offensive and ignorant, indeed.”

“Right?

In one breath he tries to present to the public all gay people as opportunistic parasites and in the next says he just wants to help them…by seeing to it they don't have health care?

It's really insufferable, these haters trying to con the public into believing they are morally superior and NOT hateful.

The man is trying to stigmatize gays by comparing them to alcoholics, not to convey any true compassion and convey a genuine desire to help them.

One word: phony.”

“He's trying to paint gay people as degenerates, seeking to mooch off of others.

He said American Airlines workers would say a person with AIDS was their lover so that person could get medical benefits.

"Folks, they (gay people) want free medical because they're dying (when they're) between 30 and 44 years old," he said.

Often a strategy to disparage an entire group of people, isolated incidents (and alleged ones at that), are being exploited to turn people on that group.

And yes, such condescension as this is entirely self-serving.

If he disparages gays in very unloving, hostile ways, and then turns around and offers shallow, grandstanding compassion, his hate seems non-existent and his words benign.

If this man truly wishes to help gay people, he would educate himself and cease the demonizing speech.

BTW, I'm a 45 year old gay man in excellent health who has been told I'm in better shape than most of the 26 year olds he sees.

And I have lots of friends in the same situation.

None of us are mooching off others' health insurance.

Lies to demonize ARE hate speech.”

“You can laugh, but this woman is evidently dealing with mental illness.

I do wish her well, and yes, I do hope she is able to support herself. She needs help.

Thank goodness there are compassionate people out there willing to give a person a chance to redeem herself, seeing signs that she has made amends for her mistake and that she has sought help for her personal issues.

Our society is in great peril right now because we are a society of the walking wounded, afraid to seek psychiatric help for ourselves because of the stigma that comes with it.

If more people got themselves psychiatric help, we'd be a less violent and dysfunctional society getting a bit closer to being an actual civilized civilization.”

“I am both angry with this woman for aiding the anti-gay faction that routinely tries to say that gays are false victims, and concerned with her mental health.

Quite often we gay people struggle with validation and self-esteem issues. This young woman seems to be familiar with that struggle.

I hope she seeks help and can find employment elsewhere.”

“Yes, it is and I'm getting tired of being told that we can just "go elsewhere". Why should we have to? Because some fundamentalist "Christian" feels he doesn't have to follow the duly-enacted accommodation law? I don't think so. My wife (she's the butch in our marriage--trust me) has already said that if we are treated this way, we will be seeing a lawyer. If suing them is the only way to get them to stop mindlessly discriminating every time they hear or see "gay" then so be it.”

“It's clear you're not going to do some introspection.

"promote and protect mating"

Gay people mate, meaning partner.

The happier and more secure people are in our society, the stronger the society.

Enough with your brand of social barbarism selling itself as nobility.”
