    You have proposed the extermination of conservatives. Post #44. I have not.
    This is not extreme? Perhaps you should exterminate thyself?
    And the idea of getting rid Conservatives will solve what you see as problems...

    Let's exterminate those who won't get along...LOL.

    Brilliant reasoning. And realistic too.

    Does this mean you advocate exterminating the Democrat Caucus and does it mean you would also play executioner to Obama?
    He is furthest left of his Senate colleagues.
    The most radical.

    So, according to your theory you believe Obama should be physically removed from office and society?
    Or is He not "extreme"?
    (I'd like an answer from you on this)
    Or will your fantasies be inconsistent?



    LOL.
    I am simply a Conservative.
    Nothing more, nothing less.

    Post #44 Deconstructed.

    Exterminations as a solution?
    "Always thought"?
    You believe you can work with socialists? Like Lieberman had? LOL
    This is child like reasoning, of which you "always thought".
    And "nothing... to dissuade you"?

    So you believe the socialists are viable partners for the greater good.
    LOL.

    I find the most of the party irrational.
    Lieberman was the only one with a rational view of Iraq from the Leftists in the Senate, and what happened? They actively set out to end his career. That's OK, as politics is its own battlefield, but why did they do it?

    Because he didn't tow the party line.
    With your theory, you'd have to exterminate virtually the entire Democrat party. But you think these people can be dealt with on the up and up?

    Did you see what garbage they just rammed through to the tune of a trillion?

    By the way...
    What is an extreme Conservative?
    Really?

    I call Democrats "socialists", "Marxists", and "Stalinists" because it fits their behavior.

    Can you define "extreme conservative"?
    Would JFK be one too?


    LOL.
    Let's all sing... "Save the world, make it a better place, for you and for me and the entire human race..."
    What blarney lad.

    Tell me. Why did partisanship, etc raise its head when Republicans had power? Before that all was well in the world.

    And when has socialism worked? One time?



    LOL.
    Sorry.
    Every time I read this post I start thinking about the Miss America pageant.
    It's so Miss California, y'know?


    People have core beliefs.
    Many on the left subscribe to socialism.
    Many on the right subscribe to Republican values of limited government...

    You believe we should all get along.
    The Founders KNEW we should have epic battles to get anything done or altered.

    Too many people are willing to appease the left and actually believe their socialist schemes will work. YOU ARE ONE OF THESE INDIVIDUALS BY WHAT YOU HAVE WRITTEN IN POST #44.

    You have a soft spot for socialists, actually believing their ideas provide for the greater good over the long term.

    Tell me, you like The New Deal? Great Society? High taxes? Weak military? Government intrusion into our lives? A strong, active, omnipresent government? That's the Democrat Party. You want 'em at the table? You obviously believe they have something valuable to offer.

    I don't.

    I want to see them defeated.
    I see you have chosen door #3: "Or keep the straw manning and soapboxing?" I will be happy to discuss any of what you ask with you, once you start getting honest. Thus far, you have not. All you have done is dodge and take out of context. Typical of extreme hyperpartisans.

    Here are the questions again:

    1) Point out where I said that conservatism=extremism.
    2) Point out where I claimed to be a socialist.
    3) Point out where I defended socialism.
    4) Point out where I said we should bring socialists to the table to help solve our problems.

    And I'll add one, demonstrating that you continue to make fallacious, ridiculous claims:

    5) Point out where I said that "everyone getting along"=socialism.

    I'll keep adding to the list. Each post you make sinks you deeper. Come on, zimmer, if I said these things, you should be able to post where I did. Why haven't you? It's getting so that, soon, I will not even need to post on this thread. All I'll do is repost your comments, and that will further prove my position. You are dodging; you refuse to prove your position; you straw man; you soap box; you refuse to admit you are wrong, even when it has been proven; you present as an extreme hyperpartisan conservative.

    So, zimmer, what's it going to be? Point out my quotes? Admit you are wrong? Or keep the straw manning and soapboxing? Come on, get honest with this. You can do it.

    I've answered you Mr. Exterminator.
    Repeatedly.
    You cannot answer the questions, and or you don't want to because your "Extermination Theory" looks silly.
    Your appeasing socialists sound like a Miss America Moment.
    A theory where:
    "I see nothing here... to dissuade me from what I've always thought: extreme partisan conservatives... need to be wiped off the face of the earth."
    Very balanced approach I must say.
    And no give.
    It is a theory of absolutes.
    "I see nothing"... "I've always thought"
    Or are you merely perfecting Obama speak?


    So you stall.
    And Stall.
    And Stall.

    You've got so many stalls you should think of opening a Soviet sized farm.

    Back to my questions, as I've answered yours.
    Repeatedly.

    How about a crack at the following for once?
    Or are you at a loss?
    Sunk in your moment of "extremism"?
    Or is executing people for their political beliefs normal?
    Not extreme?

    So:

    1. Your theory, does it mean you play executioner to Obama?

    2. Executioner to the Democrat Caucus minus Lieberman?

    3. What is an extreme conservative?
    You want them exterminated, so what is one?

    4. Show me one instance socialism has worked.
    (You can keep buying time... keep searching... you want these failures at the table... why?)

    5. Why do you want to inculcate our society with failure?
    Because it's a Miss America Pageant thing to do?
    It feels good that we all get along?
    Are you Rodney King per chance?

    I've used your words.
    Asked questions about your words.

    I guess extermination of political opponents isn't extreme to you?
    No, not to the socialist.
    It's long been a part of their modus operandi.

    And The executioner fantasizes about this socialist manner of treating political opponents.

    LOL.

    And I'm the extreme one?


    I'll keep adding to the list. Each post you make sinks you deeper.
    I've posted your post, I've answered your questions, and you simply don't like the answers.
    Sinks me deeper?
    In what?
    A post where I've repeatedly answered your questions, but because I do not answer them the way you like you dismiss them as non-answers.

    Comrade Right Hand Man:
    Still nothing, zimmer? You realize how ridiculous and beaten you are looking. Please direct me to the post where you quoted me saying any of the following:

    1) I claimed conservatism=extremism.
    2) I claimed to be a socialist.
    3) I defended socialism.
    4) I said we should bring socialists to the table to help solve our problems.
    5) I said that "everyone getting along"=socialism.

    Until you do, you are a liar when you say you've answered my questions. This what I've asked for, and you have refused to do so.

    Now, if you want to keep making foolish posts, that is your right. But it doesn't change simple facts: you are dodging; you refuse to prove your position; you straw man; you soap box; you refuse to admit you are wrong, even when it has been proven; you present as an extreme hyperpartisan conservative. You're looking ridiculous and are destroying yourself...I need to do very little here. You are helping me, immensely with your silly and obviously dodging posts. Thank you.

    Here we go ag'in.

    [QUOTE=CaptainCourtesy;1057928367][quote=zimmer;1057928344]
    Still nothing, zimmer? You realize how ridiculous and beaten you are looking.
    Moi. LOL

    I don't fantasize about executing the opponents, and then print it on the internet.
    Th- th-th-th-th-that's R-r-r-r-ridiculous Folks!

    1) I claimed conservatism=extremism.
    "extreme partisan conservatives... need to be wiped off the face of the earth."
    Your words.

    I don't find conservatism extreme.
    I don't find partisan conservatives extreme.

    I find political executions of your opponents extreme and ridiculous.
    You on the other hand:

    Quote: Cap'n Executioner: I see nothing here that does anything to dissuade me from what I've always thought...
    and then onto the clip above about extermination.

    2) I claimed to be a socialist.
    You have claimed socialists should be at the table, so you believe they have something of value to offer. You have some socialist tendencies, as the brunt of the Democrats elected are socialists. It's how you get all but Seven democrats voting for the latest Trillion Dollar wonder.

    von Mises called his collegues socialists, and I'd think he would see both the democrats as socialists and anyone believeing their ideas worth following to have socialist tendencies.

    That's you.
    3) I defended socialism.
    You want them at the table.
    Or do you want to execute the Democrats and Obama?
    You called for the culling.
    Not me.

    I don't think in those terms.
    I prefer to defeat opponents at the ballot box espousing conservatism.

    JFK (R-MA) wouldn't make it to the D's table today.

    4) I said we should bring socialists to the table to help solve our problems.
    You know what. Does what you write have any meaning?
    You don't think today's democrats are socialists? LOL.
    So you don't want them at the table?

    5) I said that "everyone getting along"=socialism.
    You want the socialists at the table. You think killing off parts of the political spectrum acceptable. For what other than so we all get along and get something bipartisan done?

    Until you do, you are a liar
    LOL


    How about a crack at the following for once?
    Or are you at a loss?
    Sunk in your moment of "extremism"?
    Or is executing people for their political beliefs normal?
    Not extreme?

    So:

    1. Your theory, does it mean you play executioner to Obama?

    2. Executioner to the Democrat Caucus minus Lieberman?

    3. What is an extreme conservative?
    You want them exterminated, so what is one?

    4. Show me one instance socialism has worked.
    (You can keep buying time... keep searching... you want these failures at the table... why?)

    5. Why do you want to inculcate our society with failure?
    Because it's a Miss America Pageant thing to do?
    It feels good that we all get along?
    Are you Rodney King per chance?

    .....................Vote....Carried..................Vote.......Percentage
    Barack Obama 365.....28(+DC+NE-02)..69,456,897......52.9
    John McCain....173......22...................59,934,814......45.7


    Let's not let the facts get in the way of the truth.
    51, 53, whatever. He still didn't get more votes than Bush, which is what I was commenting on, not McCain's ineptness. *shrug*

Of course there are too many that are invested in anger, hate, and proving the other guy is wrong rather than looking at progress or solutions, or actually looking past their own partisan hackery to see anything.
    I'd rather keep escalating the conflict until guns are drawn. Its about time we had a nice little war.

    You really don't have an appreciation for numbers, do you?

    You're comparing the results of a losing effort to a winning effort?

    Welllll........ McCain did get more votes (59,934,814), in his losing effort, than Bush got in his winning effort in 2000 (50,456,002). By about 9.5 million!!!

    Does that make you like your boy more?
    Thank You Barack Obama for Restoring Honor To The Presidency.
    President Obama will rank as one of our greatest presidents!

    I'm not sure why you keep mentioning Mickey, except of course to deflect. But the fact remains that your Messiah got less votes than Bush did when population growth is figured in. *shrug*
