1. I think this conversation was practically word for word what Rahm Emmanuel said to Obama in 2007

But unlike Eliot Ness, he didn't pay any attention. He kept on saying "No, I think Al Capone can be reasoned with. He'll settle for destroying half his distilleries, and so that's what I'll offer him. Voluntarily destroying half his stills in exchange for us ignoring his cheating on his taxes."

Meanwhile, Eric Cantor was holding THIS meeting.

3. No, but rather to say Glenn Beck said such things

about Progressives already--with the same clips.

4. Well RWer usually are the first to say such things.

 

Back when I spoke out against Desert Storm. Shortly before ending up in Desert Storm. I remember the death threats, the name-calling, physical attacks.

Since then I've no problem handing it back or dealing it first.

RW?Teabaggers are animals. Anyone that thinks they are simply going to suddenly play nice, kiss and make up is a fool.

5. I'm not suggesting to play "nice".

However, we cross a line when the rhetoric resorts to veiled threats and dehumanizing epithets that equate our efforts to the tactics of criminals. That said, I admire your courage and willingness to stand against such things. Peace.

8. Welcome to DU, quietwrite!

Glad you're here! I am in severe and extreme hard-ass mode tonight. 'Fraid I kinda get that way when I spend even a few moments reading a thread about a woman's right to choose (on which I am 100-thousand-percent UNCOMPROMISING!). Glad you're here. Sometimes I get a little overbearing when it comes to teabaggers, too. I think they and the rest of the radical wrong should be packed up and sent off to Somalia, where they should be much happier because they can have all the freakin' anarchy they want!

But sometimes, however, I eat up the threads and stories and anecdotal evidence of some patient soul's attempts to reach - and enlighten - a hopefully soon-to-be-EX-republi-CON. It does happen. I believe souls CAN be saved! And if anybody's gonna be well-equipped to do that, it'll be a DUer for sure, who's had a chance to read in here and study and become more enlightened and well-informed, too. That's important. A lot of 'em think the way they do because they're low-information voters, or all they watch is Pox Noise, or all they listen to is limbaugh. So they're not going to be able to make sense of the real world. DU can help us help them!
