Re: McCain Doesn't

Thank you Dog Chains...Some people just need to be reminded what's at stake.

True, but if this is in any way

aimed at the moronic PUMA people, just remember that they don't give a sh*t about women's rights, gay rights, children, our dying troops, the environment, etc.

They just want to pitch a hissy fit, and everything else be damned.

I hate saying this...

About people I used to call "friends", but the PUMAs are really pissing me off now. They're undermining everything that Hillary Clinton is working for. If they were really "pro-Hillary", they wouldn't be trashing her & trashing Democrats like this.

I feel really bad

for you, psychodrew, and linfar. I know it must be hard to break with people who were once your friends. For months, most of my friends on MyDD have been Obama supporters, despite our differing allegiances, so I haven't had to lose any of them.

IMO, the PUMA people have basically said a big "F*CK YOU" to Hillary and the Democratic party. My patience is gone.

Re: True, but if this is in any way
Two principles for dealing with distraught people - from working in wards for way too many years  - who come into the emergency room with the wife or husband they just stabbed  while still arguing with them about how they are right about whatever it was that compelled them to stab the person in the first place. N.B., hospital emergency rooms are a really bad place for psychosocial interventions, and doctors hate doing it, but it's where the drama throws itself.

Never run up to an hysterical person and shout. You or what you think of them does not matter. If you want the screaming to end dissolve into supporting the hysteria until it all gets out - like lancing a deep stomach infection - then put them on Ativan. They'll need it when they realize the full repercussions of their fit.

Re: McCain Doesn't

Yeah, well goodbye and good luck, I'll probably be booted soon because some clownish, "democratic" supporter who defends PUMA insulted me, and I insulted him back, but I cursed. You know how it is here, you can call Obama almost any name you want, but if you call another user those things while they are trolling for PUMA joinees, it's off to the bench. I'm so darned frustrated. I really tried to get into a decent conversation with this troll ChiDenny too, thinking maybe he wasn't a complete waste of space. my bad.

Re: McCain Doesn't
Dude, you troll rated every comment in every diary I made.  Then you used profanity to attack me, even after I was ignoring you.  Either is sufficient for being banned.
BTW, I'm not a PUMA.  You, while you're still here, find anything to I state to the contrary.  And to be clear, CAChemist's diary stated "No Flaming".  Too bad you, and others just can't seem to help yourselves.

Re: McCain Doesn't

You personally attacked Dog Chains as well...

Re: McCain Doesn't

They were both wrong in their argument, but Chitown was acting in good faith by responding to my question in the diary so should never have received any flak from Dog in the first place.

Many PUMA post crap and run.  Chitown was willing to have a substantive argument and I appreciate that.  I think he is totally wrong but at least he was willing to actively argue.

Re: McCain Doesn't

Seriously, I'm not interested in keeping this going. I called something BS (only I spelled it out). you hide rated me, I moved on, tried to get into a serious discussion with a PUMA, you jumped in by insulting me and comparing me to your dogs, I called you a name and realized than you were more interested in trolling than discussing the point...whatever, I've moved on but you misrepresented the entire chain of events.

17

Hootie, thanks for 17 great answers to a rhetorically silly question.  

Any so-called Dem that doesn't care about these issues is probably not even worth arguing with.

Good but could be great

This was nice, but it would be great if you could make all the "McCain doesn't" phrases into links to substantive articles on that subject.  I think most could be taken from the McCain google project.

Still, very nice.
