Even if you won. The job entails far more than most people think it seems. Trump learned this the hard way.

You are responding to a thread about how all of us can be president, so one would assume you'd like to be on topic at least a little. That's not me putting words in your mouth, that's me pointing out the rules. Trying to get us back on topic. But okay, let's carry on since you don't want to do that!

I really don't want to put words in your mouth, so I'm going to quote you and try to parse. Please point out where I get it wrong, okay?
Yeah, but those people said all those things about sjw's in response to all the condescending Trump stuff - well, that definitely wasn't Modanna, since she doesn't post here as far as I know, so you're still bringing in something random. Please, feel free to actually point to something said here that you felt you had to condescend to.

If you put out condescension, you'll most probably get it in return. - yes, I agree here.

The way how a lot of people express their opinions on here is very antagonizing, so they kinda have to expect there will be a like reaction, ya know, Newton and all that jazz. - And my point was that there's lots of push from either side, so your complaint about being pushed to the limits seems a bit false.

I would express myself more neutrally if they did. - Me too. But some folks seem to insist on stirring up trouble, and while I often try to maintain a non-interaction policy, sometimes I just have to step in, because yes, even mods have opinions.

If I went into a church and said "You guys are all stupid for believing in fairy tales.", I'm pretty sure the general reaction won't be very nice. - And this here is why I was talking about this not being a shrine to anything. Yes, I agree, going to a church and shouting "god isn't real" or whatnot would be rude and wrong. But this isn't a church. The analogy is flawed.

I've had people come up to me on the street corner and shout how I'm going to hell. I'm pretty sure they were there for the San Diego ComiCon, which was the next weekend, while I was there for a virtualization/mapping seminar, but that's okay. I've had people argue at me online that I'm going to hell for mutilating my genitals since I had an orchiectomy, and with certain readings of the bible, that's a no-no, too.

But those don't really apply here. If you get really upset over political posts, go over to some site that just assumes your viewpoint, there are plenty for everyone, and you won't get so upset when you see someone posting something against your viewpoint. Deciding to get triggered and condescending towards other posters here isn't helping your position in the least. Respond with facts and figures. Report if they get offensive, but escalating doesn't help anyone, and just diverting doesn't encourage discussion, like bringing up Modanna all of a sudden. If you want, we can talk about how that is kind of a distraction and taken out of context, but it has nothing to do with the postings here that you were complaining about nor does it have any relevance to Trump being president meaning all of us can.


You are misinterpreting the Madonna thing. I was trying to give a typical example of leftists and how the they react to Trump winning, just like so many on this thread.

Yes, there is lots of push from each side, but before the election, I started to notice tons of anti Trump threads. They didn't express their views or opinions neutrally, and after seeing that shit over and over, I just had to counter their condescension with my own.

Wait, you were saying how about stating facts instead of being condescending, but isn't it hypocritical for YOU to do the same?

Again, I never said it was church. Look, I was attempting to say that if you are rude to people, you kind have to expect rudeness back.

I'm not sure what you're orchiectomy has to do with any of this.

I don't get triggered. You are confusing me for the person who started this thread. They are triggered that TRUMP WON!

I wasn't trying to divert, so stop accusing me of that. And again, if it's okay for them to be condescending, than it's okay for me. You have to be able to take it if you are going to dish it out, otherwise you guys shouldn't complain to mommy lorreen when I fight back in kind.

My orchiectomy had about as much to do with posts here as your complaint about Modanna.. and no, I'm not confusing anything. I pointed out that you were posting off topic, but with that mommy lorreen remark, we are done. I normally do not mod in threads I comment in, but you are engaging in a personal attack, and that is against the rules.

It's not just that, but they're beliefs in general, plus I'm in liberal New York, so I'm constantly surrounded by their kind, so I know what they're generally like. You're going to keep making me repeat myself. Believe whatever you want to believe, but I know the truth. From this point on, If you keep arguing with me about this, I'm just going to respond "YOU'RE BRAINWASHED!" That goes for any anti Trump person on here. I've already stated the facts, the logic, the common sense, provided video evidence, had tons of personal experience, etc. to support what I say and disprove what you guys say.


Man, you are really deep in the Koolaid bowl aren't you? >.>



Do you have selective reading disorder it just looks like a ransom letter only posting part of posts.

Dude needs to pace himself. You can't just blow all your troll right out of the gate. You'll never get any CR points.

At this point, this thread is merely attracting alt accounts, so I'm going to close it. Maybe after they get bored it'll get restored
