    When I used an analogy to make a point during the Presidential campaign you got embarrassed and all bent out of shape so badly that you threw the thread into the sewer.

    Now you expect to use analogy and have people respond to it like adults?

    I see.

    I see.

    1) I was not bent out of shape and if there was any embarrassment it was for the upstairs part of the forum that your thread showed up there. Further, if I recall your thread correctly,the entire thread was nothing more than bait. Analogies can be used in different ways.

    2) Let's be clear about this. You want to address me as a poster, be my guest. You start getting into moderation issues and you start walking on thin ice.

    3) I expect that when people are confronted on hyperbole they will either respond by admitting it, explaining it, or acting out. I am hoping that the Reverend chooses door #2 or #1. I'd prefer that he choose #2 and clarify his position. If not, I can accept #1.

    OK ...So here we are two days later, and we do know more. It wasn`t just some gun crazed fool out partying. It was a gun owner who had lost his job. That`s worth a rant..., YES / NO ? The number of persons doing the multi-murder rage, each week, is accelerating at a rate that will shock those of you who insist on clogging your brains with MEDIA TRUTHS. Try a little reality-shock. Don`t go to the store... no, don`t go to the store at all. Don`t go to the store for weeks on end. When you do, make it a "food bank ". Now , take your food to the back yard where you`ve pitched a tent, build a campfire,cook the food, go to bed, ( NO TV there chumly), no shower, just go to bed. This flavor of TYRANNY is defining a new use for the bullets people bought to deffend against, you guessed it, TYRANNY (of old). I am NOT defending this guy,or any of the others who have engaged in mass-frustrated-killings (this week), I do believe in the "obligation" (the constitution actualy does describe it as an obligation) "to keep and bare arms should this or any other government,(lets change that to entity here), become tyrannous over the people". The entity today is YOU, ...US,...WE,...EVERYONE,... people, our society, became the most selfish, inconciderate, uncareing, vicious bunch of MONEY WHORES in the history of the world, in the last very few years. Look for much, much, much more, of the same, in the weeks, months, and possibly years to come, as this script isn`t well written, and Americans didn`t want to become third world, and "fair in the ways of socialism". Y`all enjoy what your econo-blather hath wrought. What I believe will happen soon, is the streets will smoke. We the people are becomeing that hot over the "RIGHT TO EVEN EXIST". When you move into that tent, you`ll begin to understand 20 million people fireing guns in all directions, and it is about the strugle to EXIST. Interestingly , this fine sunday morn, one of the networks told a story from the depresion (1929), and what people did on Wal-Street, with a wagon loaded with dynamite.

    Get back to me when you want to be honest in our discussion.

    "Here 14 people let themselves get shot, not only was no one armed, but words like "cower" and "hid" are the words used here. it dismays me to know end that we teach ourselves to be meek when the wolf comes for the slaughter....

    Like the VT tech thing, we have neutered the people and prepared them for the slaughter......"


    It was pointed out none of the victims had guns followed by saying that is proof we are trained to be meek and being prepared for the slaughter, so yes, the position is quite clear: be meek or be armed.

    Don't accuse others of being dishonest simply because you can't be.

    The main problem is trying to imply being meek means being weak. It takes a much stronger person to be meek, but most gun lovers have no idea how to begin to relate. The weakest people are those who rely on guns for resolutions. Be it an armed robber who's too lazy to work for the money or the NRA crowd that lives in a basket case of fear.

    No strawman. I don't make this stuff up. Please explain this post:





    Get back to me when you can see how your position is extremist and inciting.


    Awesome, you take something I say out of context, and use it to continue your strawman. ignoring other posts I make that explain that comment.

    You saw this post, this explaination:

    http://www.debatepolitics.com/breaki...post1057981365

    but instead of honest discussion you want to continue this line of baiting, fine by me, i can play any way YOU want.

    Get back to me when you want an honest discussion.

    Who said carrying a gun, and being willing to use it in defense of innocent life, means you can't be meek?

    Being meek isn't about being a victim of any scumbag who wants to take what you have, be it your wallet, your spouse or your life.

    Being meek is about humility, kindness, selflessness, not returning insult for insult, not escalating situations though pointless displays of anger.

    Packing a gun doesn't mean you can't do all that. In point of fact I'd daresay the average lawful permit holder is probably more polite and "meek" than those who don't carry, in my experience.

    In any case SkyCore, I haven't seen any evidence here that you qualify as "meek". You've done too much namecalling and flung too many insults to qualify.
    An intresting point I've run across is how many self-labeled "pacifists" run their mouth freely, insult others freely, engage in verbal and emotional abuse of others...while at the same time screaming angrily "I'm against violence!!"
    I think, instead, such persons wish to control the level and type of violence they engage in, but "meek" isn't the word for them.

    I think i brought up the word, "meek" and by your description, this is not what I meant by meek. What saddens me is seeing these shootings, were relativley lighty armed individuals are able to kill 10 20 people and seemingly not one puts up a fight...

    Columbine, VT, and this one, here, you have instances of people "waiting to die" (i put this in quotes in hopes others do not take me out of context again, not you btw)....

    We're cool.

    There's "meek" in the biblical sense; in modern terms "mild-mannered", kind and helpful, not arrogant or unreasonable or pushy.

    And then there's cowering in terror, lacking the courage (or the means) to stop a mass murderer from killing more innocents... that's just being a victim, in my lexicon, and there is no virtue in it.

    I didn't bring up being "meek" and if you wouldn't have edited my post that might have been seen. RH's post sent a clear message as has already been explained. Now some may not like being called out on what they post so they accuse others of being dishonest because they refuse to own their own words.

    In any case SkyCore, I haven't seen any evidence here that you qualify as "meek". You've done too much namecalling and flung too many insults to qualify.

    Where have I ever claimed to be meek? Is this the best you can do? A Little Rascals soapbox bonanza that sounds like a squeaky mouse having her period? Hell, you even have to lie on top of that! Lol
