There's no laws for having tact, doesn't change the fact people can call others out and state their lack of respect for the person due to their lack of tact
    Ok, well, from the viewpoint of a poster, if someone started an RIP thread about James Earl Ray, or Sirhan Sirhan and another posted said they were a piece of ****. Would you feel the same way?

    Does it have to do with speaking ill of the dead, or with you disagreeing with me that Cronkite was a defeatest piece of ****?

    Cronkite's reporting during the Vetinam war, as has been proven, cost American lives. That purdy much makes him a piece of ****.

    There's a lot of "what if's" in your line of questioning there. The fact remains, you did what you did and Zyph called you out for it. Can't change the facts, maybe you should stay on topic.

    Iraq: Learning the Lessons of Vietnam
    By Melvin R. Laird

    From Foreign Affairs, November/December 2005

    MELVIN R. LAIRD was Secretary of Defense from 1969 to 1973, Counselor to the President for Domestic Affairs from 1973 to 1974, and a member of the House of Representatives from 1952 to 1969. He currently serves as Senior Counselor for National and International Affairs at the Reader's Digest Association.

    The truth about Vietnam that revisionist historians conveniently forget is that the United States had not lost when we withdrew in 1973. In fact, we grabbed defeat from the jaws of victory two years later when Congress cut off the funding for South Vietnam that had allowed it to continue to fight on its own.

    Cronkite was a ditto-head for the Vietnam War until 1968, when he finally realized it could not be won. And you still disagree? There's always one guy that doesn't get the word.

    If the first 10 posts were all people sharing condolences and saying words of respect, probably. However, its unlikely to happen with them, and the fact you're comparing Cronkite to James Earl Ray shows the partisan hack you and the worth of your opinions.

    Does it have to do with speaking ill of the dead, or with you disagreeing with me that Cronkite was a defeatest piece of ****?
    It has to do with you exhibiting zero tact and basically disrespecting your fellow posters here imho.

    Funny, didn't realize Rush Limbaugh was broadcasting during the Vietman war, or are you just letting your hyper partisan liberal show by reaching to try and use a degrading term because everythings gotta be insulting to the other side for you?

    Meanwhile, here on planet Earth, the record overwhelmingly demonstrates the exact opposite of everything you've just said.

    Cronkite was relentlessly biased against the war, and even flat-out lied to undermine it. And it is a matter of record that Republicans were in fact finally starting to win this war Democrats got us into and utterly botched. Democrats pulling funding out from under our troops at the last second (a.k.a., treason--their specialty) is literally the only reason the North went on to win.

    Thanks to the liberal misinformation machine (Hollywood, academia, the news media, elected Democrats), and the easily-led sheep who swallow everything they're spoon-fed, there ARE plenty of people who didn't "get the word."

    Thanks for demonstrating.

    Here's a novel idea: try actually refuting what he posted, rather than attacking him personally (have you noticed it's a debate site?).

    Democracy is two wolves and a sheep voting on what's for dinner (paraphrasing James Bovard).

    Correct me if I am wrong, but I though the term "ditto head" was given out to those who simply swallow whatever information that was given out the them without questioning. I realize it originated from people who listen to Rush, but I have seen the term used elsewhere.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    Hate to break it you, Aquapub, but Will is correct. Walter did indeed change his stance after going there and seeing first-hand what was going on.

    He certainly reported it like it was.

    I'm almost positive that it was coined for followers of the Rush Limbaugh Show, but I admit I may be wrong with that.

    You are correct it was coined for Limbaugh's droids, but the image is so iconic it can be used to identify any political cult-like behavior, even from pre-Rush times.
