    From today until the election, I will not post in any smear thread from now until the elections. I had avoided them for 2 months and started again recently and it's made me sick.

    I realize I don't speak for everyone here but I'd like to invite everyone to join me. If not, then I ask all democrats to boycott smear threads from now until the election. If that is too much (because I know how we like to debate here) how about if we boycott all Fogbuster threads?

    I'd like to get some feedback so "if" we are going to do one of the above, I know which one it is. obviously the last suggestion would be the easiest solution.:D

    comments please.

    I had this discussion with A.Paul just before he melted down into otis driftwood
    I use to be like you then I realized one day who I was dealing with. I'm an Ind. but the amount of trash throw out there drove me farther and farther to the left. I came to realize no matter how I tried to argue a point with objectivity that it was like talking to a wall.
    And let me be clear the lefties here thought I was a righty at this time last year.
    I don't try to smear,I try to point out lies and hypocrisy. Palin is a different matter I just quote her. It speaks for itself.

    I promise not to bring up the fact Fog is a nutcase or that McCain left his wife while she was recuperating from a car accident to marry a young, rich, woman or that Palin is a dope. We are above that kind of nonsense and I wont do it.

    I will second that. The problem of course, what is a smear (which is obvious). If I post a thread pertaining to Palin, some people will call it a smear, while my point might be that she is unqualified or has committed a gaffe while speaking. This will be followed up by what is constituted as a smear.

    HD: smear is for bagels.

    HD: Oh....SCHmear!? ........Carry ON!





    On the serious:
    It can't be stopped, all is fair in politics. Smears are put out there for the dumb and easily swayed. I enjoy debunking smears. However .... every now and then, I assume something is a smear, go out to disprove it, and find out that its the truth. I guess at that point its not smear.

    I'm going cross-eyed......


    Point is.....ignore 'em or prove 'em wrong.

    Imagine democrats not smearing anybody, go to some of the "left wing blogs" if you want to see some real crap, some of them had Barbara bush making love to a gorilla, another one had G Bush, Condi Rice and The Pope all having sex in the Oval Office.

    Dumpocrats invented "Smear" thats one of the reasons I left them, watch David Letterman, listen to Al Franken, "moveon.org" SNL, Oliver Stone, Michael Sh!t Belly Moore etc etc.

    Left wing blog? Just look at the majority of threads in this forum from the usual socialist suspects. Of course they get all that nonsense from their crazy ULTRA Left wing blogs.

    Of course you wouldn't know about Obamas mentor Ayers group who shot a Boston cop and father in the back in cold blood. Many domestic bombings and only regretted they didn't do what was eventually done on 9-11-01.

    I've been a professional desktop publisher since 1987. But, the credit for that one is right on the image.

    Obama didn't actually murder someone either. And Ayers had no problem with people being harmed and killed by his group. And obviously Obama didn't/doesn't.

    No, it's not obvious, it's absurdly flawed logic. Ayers is a FORMER weathermen member who feels he never hurt anyone, there's a reson he isn't in jail:

    There is virtually no evidence that Obama and Ayers are anything more than casual acquaintances. Obama associates with a wide variety of prominent Chicago figures, some with questionable backgrounds and probably sketchy futures. To hand pick a random association because of his membership in a radical group before Obama was even 10 years and try to align Obama with that group is just dumb.

    Great. One man stands tall and suspends his campaign putting his board before himself. And what do you guys do? You inject presidential politics into it.... he was about to fix the economy for us too, I hope you know that. You've just effed it up for EVERYBODY.

    If Michael and PR had just agreed to a series of 10 town hall meetings I never would have gone negative.

    They built bombs packed with nails and other anti-human material. What Ayers and Obama have/had in common is one thing; but the Weathermen were terrorists IMO.

    I find Fog's tone quite unpleasant so tend not to respond to him, but I won't rule it out because once in awhile he's pleasant enough and the only way to promote that behavior is to give it positive feedback by responding.

    Well...ok then...let's scratch that idea.:p

    I really enjoyed reading through every single post without replying so I could get a feel for where everyone stands. In retrospect, I have to admit my idea wasn't that good.

    I often forget what politics and this board is all about...POLITICS!

    So when I see 15+ posts that don't agree with my idea, the only thing I can do is give way to the majority and admit to myself "it's just you". I believe that the best experiences any man can have in life are those that are most humbling.

    So to anyone who posted their thoughts & opinions in this thread, thank you. I know you all can't be wrong and I'm right, so I'll swallow my pride and accept the majority opinion.

    Oh really? yesterday I asked him to respond directly to my post 3 times. Of course he never did.

    So I'm guessing that smiley guy you put up is missing a tongue in his cheek.;)

    Did you see his "facts" regarding the crime tendancies of gays vs. non-gays? He referenced Dahmer and Gacy, as if they're the norm.
