    Hold on a second there, SB. Do you have any reason to assume that those of us on the right who don't agree with some of Tigger's more extreme statements are just being less than honest about it?

    Tbh it's refreshing. As for Hatuey, since he brought up Apdst and Tigger in such a fun way, he is quite the partisan himself.

    In Tigger's case, I don't see how posting your thoughts bluntly on a thread is "reactionary." Usually when I think about reactionary people, they tend to react in an over-exaggerated way, like Kali, for example. That's not necessarily bad, seeing as we're human and all.
    That's not what I mean by reactionary.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    No, I don't think that. I just find Tigger to be more blunt even if he comes off sounding more of a douchebag. Like Wake says he doesn't sugarcoat things. I don't know how many other people out there may share Tigger's views, but he's certainly probably the most blunt individual I've encountered who holds such views.

    I don't see much wrong with that, unless it means violence/oppression.

    I don't have a book titled Tigger that details his beliefs.

    The loss of State's Rights and the Traditional Values that they espoused.

    I am who and what I am. I will not change that for anyone. If that makes me a tool in your eyes, so be it. The next moment I care about what anyone thinks of me will be the first moment I have cared. Anything that takes the attention of people away from those morons is a good thing in my mind. Makes it easier for the cops to put the scumballs back in their proper place.

    Probably BOTH, Ballin.

    Why wouldn't I be blunt? I have no reservations about my beliefs nor are they negotiable or mutable in my mind. If that makes me sound like a douchebag, so be it.

    I think the above link relates well to all things OWS and what it is that they are protesting. It was authored by Citigroup and although it takes a while to read, it does expose some simple truths that Wall Street doesn't desire to talk about. Tired of all things OWS? Hopefully, it is the tip of the iceberg.

    So you are an auto mechanic without a sense of adventure. Interesting.

    Hi, I am the Greatness that is the Good Reverend. You, mortal, should consider your revolution carefully. Sitting in the woods, Shooting guns, complaining about the man and drinking PBR, isn't training enough to carry out that mission,




    The loss of State's Rights and the Traditional Values that they espoused.
    What specific "traditional values" did they espouse that you would like to return to? What you are not saying is much more clear than what you are saying.

    In our nation, things are not nearly as good as they should be...
    Maybe the bottom line is that we do not have the quality of people......But as an optimist, I cannot belive this to be so.
    And, I must admit, my eyes are glued to the media, too much so...
