Response to Jackie Wilson Said (Reply #70)

Fri Mar 25, 2016, 07:25 PM

76. Several others have asked me about myself

 

Hence the pronouns. In fact, your entire response is about me, so it's hard to address it without referring to myself.

Discussions in the abstract don't go far around here because people prefer to have some kind of focus in their discussions--be it a person, event, etc. By the design of my OP, I'm that focus in this thread, so many of the comment chains look like this one.

You never actually asked me if I would vote for Hillary. You only insinuated that I'm willing to endorse some of the more vile ideas pitched by the republicans. That's not how to get an answer if you truly want one.

Honestly, I'm appalled at the level of discourse around here. Only incendiary threads get any traction--I intentionally made this one much more aggressive than it originally was to see if that would work as expected and it did. The drive-by insult flavor of comments (which is how you chose to introduce yourself to this discussion) is also disappointing. Instead of allowing you and others to steer me towards that same level of pettiness, I've been asking questions and pushing back.

With that said, you have still not addressed the fundamental question in this discussion: how long are new democrats not actually democrats in your eyes?
