    You aren't going to get hooked up on a it-never-works constant usage of a word hoping to divert - for you "hyperbole," for HeadOfJoaquin it is "mere" and for Liberal Avenger it is "strawman" are you?

    Just wasted messages other than I suppose some people want to increase their post count.
    What definition is that? Surely you don't mention the direction definition do you?

    And what again does any of this have to do with what I said? Assuming everything you said is correct it has nothing to do with my own opinion about race in the context given in post #51. Am I responsible for what liberals and African American leaders think? No. Am I responsible for what you think liberals and African Americans think? No. So why are you bringing it up?

    In my opinion I think viewing problems through a lense of race is entirely unproductive in most contexts, and I really don't care with whatever you say other people believe in regards to that. Firstly because I know you have a tendency to exaggerate, secondly because you've got no source and are stating opinions as if they were fact, and lastly because you like to generalize and stereotype.

    And finally, comparing our respective post counts I think its clear who has a greater interest in it.

    Am I wrong, about his comment about liberals or whoever wanting black people in prison? Is it not an exaggeration is it not an hyperbole, is it not vague, undefined, and lacking a source?

    Instead of complaining that I don't focus enough on other people, why don't you actually look at the content of my post and judge it on that basis alone.

    I'm commenting on WHO you tend to respond to...but...are you right? You called it hype...he stated that his position was consistent with black leaders and a whole lot of other folks. 'Hyperbole" sometimes tend to be in the eye of the beholder...and we have a running history of what your eyes 'see'.

    No I called what he said hyperbole, and then when he said "black leaders agree with me," again with no source or backing or any idea of specifically which black leaders he's referring to, I said I don't care its still hyperbole. My intent was to call only what he originally said as hyperbole, nothing else.

    And again is it not exaggeration to say liberals want black people to be jailed?

Do you even listen to the absurd logic. the reason for them to carry the guns is supposedly to scare off the bad guy. That is because there is a threat of violence when you are carrying around a tool which only has the purpose to kill.

    Again, you illustrate the problem of talking to gun people. they do not want an honest conversation. you claim to have seen nothing about violence or scary things, but then you completely contradict that in the next sentence where you claim guns scare away criminals. That is dishonest. that is pretending guns are not scary or violent while claiming they are scary and violent. Pick a side.


    Without a mind reading device how is anyone supposed to know which is which? Sorry, but i don't expect the government to overlook people like ted nugent who make threats against them. That is just stupid.
    There's nothing dishonest about what I said. I just don't equate self defense with "scary" and "violent", while I admitted that there are some people out there who take things too far not everyone who wants a gun for self-defense is a nut job.
    I believe half of the things I say and say half of the things I believe.

    Not 'all' liberals (some are actually staunch supporters of gun owners rights)...just antigun zealots. SOME liberals are just 'opposed' to bans...but you know...kinda go along...cuz really...rights change...and...well...what could it hurt to allow for a little 'reasonable' gun control...

    I don't know who all he was citing but the head of the Frederick Douglass Foundation seems to agree with him.

    Looks like it's racist, progressive malcontents who can't take it. They're afraid that white men will be able to blow away themselves and their criminal associates.

    So the problem is inner city violence among blacks, and the solution is to give them all guns? They already have guns. There's thousands of problems involved here and "not enough guns" isn't one of them.

    As I said when you tried to post a whole thread about this, if Liberals tried to say what you're saying, they'd be accused of "class warfare" and being soft on crime. I guess that class warfare isn't a problem when it's about guns.

    I was going to say that the article was ridiculous, but then your paranoia was even more ridiculous. Apparently, YOU don't have a problem with class warfare if it's about guns. The only problem in your mind, is liberals and the evil MSM out to persecute you.
