“in this matter, the people who have a hard time with the truth generally tend to be those who subscribe to Rush's comments.”

“Please Rush has more truth in his pinky finger than the entire liberal media has in most of their articles of propaganda. The Socialist can't handle the truth because they know their socialist system would actually fail if they provided the truth.”

“1) Heat flopped their way to the finals
2) Heat are the dirtiest team in the league
3) Heat fans arethe worst
4) most Heat fans are bandwagon posers who jumped on board after the heat acquired LJ and wona title,
5) the ones who say otherwise are usually lying.
6) Heat fans talk such crap when they win, then ball like babies and leave the arena when they lose.
7) Heat have the most ridiculous fanbase in the world bar none.

ok, gotcha.

and yeah, there is a fine and CLEAR line between opinion and fact. you can feel however you want about another team and their fanbase but hopefully you realize that while all of your points ARE very clear they are also ALL clearly opinion, not fact.”

“hmmmm yeah i'd say you've entirely ignored the context.

maybe he could have answered the reporter's question by pointing out that there are more important things going on in the world, but then again...he's an athlete and was being asked a sports related question in the heat of the moment of the NBA Finals.

most normal people wouldn't seriously expect a professional athlete to go on a diatribe about injustice, homelessness, wealth inequality, etc., when asked a simple sports related question in that context. by the same token, most normal people would also stop short of insinuating that said pro athlete must think that these sports related issues are as important as or even parallel to the plight of the guy living under a bridge without shoes simply because said pro athlete deigns to answer the question from a reporter.”

“lol, you seem a bit emotional about this, my friend....

anyway, i'm well aware that people have been talking repeat all year, and why not? if you've watched the NBA this season (and it would appear you have) then you already know that the Heat have been the single most dominant force in the league. unbeatable doesn't mean that they were realistically expected to go 82-0 in the regular season and then sweep everybody throughout the playoffs. be real.

as far as the Bulls, congrats for ending the Heat's 27 game winning streak. it was 1 game. congrats to them for beating the Heat in game 1 of the playoffs. and congrats to the Heat on eliminating them from the playoffs.”

“with all due respect, the Bulls didn't prove THAT much since they were eliminated by the Heat in 5 games. No realistic observer has expected the Heat to sweep every team and every series in the playoffs.”

Alwayslearning82 on Jun 2, 2013 at 14:08:32

“ESPN, Steven A Smith, and nearly every other commentator has been talking repeat all year, especially after the streak in the regular season. The words "unbeatable" have been used my friend. Its all documented, its not conjecture. And with respect, the physical play with a second and third string team took the Heat to an extreme they did not see all year long, and they lost to the Bulls in the regular season, they ended their streak. They gave other teams the blueprint to break the big 3 (now the big 1). You gotta give a depleted Bulls team credit for what they accomplished against "the greatest team ever assembled" as sports media have claimed about the Heat. ”

“you again?

you seem a bit desperate if at this point you want to make the argument that i must think Cuba was "a joy" in the 60's simply because 2 weeks ago i pointed out the flaw in your own shoddy reasoning for criticizing Jay-Z's trip on racial grounds.

As far as black Cubans and life in Cuba vs. the violent racism of the US in the era, staying in Cuba didn't have to be "a joy" in the 60's in order to be a viable alternative to the very real dangers of driving/walking/breathing while black in many parts of this country at the time. I never said people stayed or should have stayed in Cuba because it was a joyful paradise. My point was that a warning to black Cubans about the very real dangers they might potentially face at the hands of US racists in that era could hardly have been overstated given the despicable things that were still happening to black people in the United States at the time.

And of course you don't see US citizens rowing or hijacking boats to get to Cuba. Why would anyone think that an island that has been crippled by unwavering economic sanctions for the last several decades is the go-to spot for a better opportunity? You accuse me of being comical while desperately resorting to absurdity.”

foogol on Apr 30, 2013 at 01:47:55

“I could have easily added your ad hominem. But I decided, you needed a lift. You are transparent and insipid. What you don't seem to understand is, Cubans started rowing boats to the U.S. since the early 60's to get away from the torturous Castro dictatorship. Nothing to do with economic sanctions. You would have known that if you lived in Cuba after the revolution but you didn't.. So in other words, you are a babe in the woods.    .  ”

“Really? Thanks for breaking down what fear mongering means to you. I'm not going to go back and forth debating definitions and semantics, but in that era it would be just as legitimate to tell those citizens (black Cubans) who might be targeted as any "travel advisory" issued by our US government today. it hardly seems exaggerated, and its hardly the case that ALL blacks in the US needed to be directly assaulted or abused in the US for there to be legitimate concerns. The U.S. at the time had a very serious human rights issue with regards to its treatment of black people, and no matter what you think the motives might be behind the warnings given to black Cubans it would have been impossible for anyone to truly exaggerate them.

besides, by the same token it would be just as easy for someone to say that the old guard Cuban exiles here in Miami have been fear mongering about the Castro regime itself for quite some time. and i'm sure you wouldn't want anyone to suggest that you or others who think the way you do are exaggerating or twisting reality to suit your own agenda, right?”

“Really? That was the point. Fear mongering doesn't fall under false premises. In other words, it was exaggerated. Castro intentionally told blacks "only" to keep them on the island. And not all blacks got assaulted in the U.S. either. Regardless, it was an intentional act to bring fear, it worked.
