I read that site some times.

People like billbuckhead make me wonder if the name should be demoprat.

Now I know that's not very highroad, but how can he call us various things, when he has shown that not matter the truth, he's committed to irresponsible crap like the AWB, and calls guys like BenEzra all sorts of names when they refute his lies?

This is the guy who posts those pics of Heston with the musket whenever he's losing an argument, as if that invalidates the other person's points.

From what I've seen of his posts (and I've read that site for quite some time now), his mentality seems to be "I want 'common sense' bans, and I don't care how little common sense they actually are. I'm on a moral crusade, and I don't want sane people getting in my way!

Again, apologies for what seems to be a non-highroad post.

I don't know what to say. I've been to that site. It is shameful.


All I know is that they think a certain way, and we think a certain way. And judging by the posts there, vs. the ones here, there is ZERO compatibility between the two. There is no middleground, and the DU'ers are a very intolerant, close-minded hateful breed.


There will never be an understanding between us. Ever. Either one side will die out, or each will prevail till it comes to a head.


I pray for the day that it all finally hits the fan in this nation, and we can settle these unreconcilable differences the old fashion way - the permanent way.

I read that site some times.Same here. Like the old saw says.."Keep your friends close, but your enemies closer." :D

Reading DemocraticUnderground is usefull in getting ALL perspectives on issues of the day, and their membership is no more lock-step on the issues than WE are. It only SEAMS that way do to the volume of posters. Oh, and the science/econ/envirment forums have proven quite usefull.

You're upset with them because they are intolerant of your views, yet you look forward to the day that you are able to kill them because of their views?

There's endless threads of defense of neoCONism, bigotry and stupidity, all done with a "Screw you I'm from TeXXXas" attitude.

It seems one could certainly raise questions about his reading comprehension...

Wow.

Very rarely do I get rated worse than rapists, murderers, child molesters, islamofascist terrorists, and crack dealers.

Heck I don't think I've even been rated worse than a lawyer or politician.


Makes me feel good though, that there's an entire website full of people more bitter and less fact oriented than myself.

Okay, I'll admit, I checked out that thread ... and I tried once before reading through the DU forum, but it is excruciatingly unbearable.

So, "some of the worst people America has to offer?" I'd wager a year's wages that the average level of education of THR members, and the average level of income of THR members, are both much higher than those levels for DU members. It seems DU has a lot of frustrated, bitter people onboard ...

Hmm, wonder if it's worth registering just to post a response on that thread ...

Um. Folks, THR does not do forum wars.

Closed.

(Oh, and please please please, if you drop by there -- don't do it from here! We don't need an invasion.)
