Yall are welcome to call me stupid. But I read the article and its not making sense. I dont see how it supports what the OP says it does.
Davis testified before Congress in July 2009 on behalf of his Honduran clients. Later, moving to new lobbying firms, Davis ultimately represented the new Honduran government itself and took his new client to two new firms he formed: Lanny J. Davis & Associates, and Davis-Block, LLC. The latter was a strategic communications firm whose vice president was Omri Ceren. Earlier this year, Ceren was hired as Ted Cruzs national security advisor.
So Lanny Davis (who is Bill Clintons lawyer and still has ties to Hillary), has a firm, one of which has a Vice President that Ted Cruz hired to advise him on national security.
And this means that Ted Cruz has close ties to starting the caravan? smh, help me out here
The Young Turks?? You're seriously going to cite them as objective reporting?
Veritas might have done some shady crap in the past, but you can't mince the words coming out of those campaign worker's mouths. And they got fired the same day the videos were released amid a frenzy of excuse making by the candidates that were exposed.
YÂall are welcome to call me stupid Hi stupid! There's not much integrity in reporting these days. That's why it is so confusing. But, as you grow older and, hopefully wiser, you'll see through the BS.
His comments seemed pretty tame to me. What did he say that is not allowed? Why did all of his comments and his entire presence on this topic get deleted? I came on this morning to continue what could have been a good conversation.
How does icing people and deleting all of their comments make this a place people want to visit? I think it just makes things worse.
Certain people get special treatment because of a history or trolling topics and antagonizing posters unnecessarily. They're actions make it what it is.
I didnÂt see the OP do any of that. If this is such a low traffic place anyway, why is it even necessary to give people time-outs? As pointed out above, they can just come back anyway.
The only reason I came here is to try to learn more about politics from people that talk about it. IÂm taking a class at U of H this semester and it seems interesting. Reddit is a bunch of trolls. Democratic Underground kicked me out. The other Kingwood site is very one sided, so I tried it here. Why canÂt we just be allowed to speak freely with each other? Do we need a moderator to babysit and punish speech?
On another topic, I was told by someone with a role of ÂwizardÂ that this site is losing money. It seems like getting rid of people that discourage participation would be a great way to cut costs.
Anybody know what moderators are paid? It cant be much, especially on this site.
What did he say that is not allowed You'd have to ask one of the mods. There isn't a whole lot of consistency in their actions, but it is a sucky job to do. BTW, there is a supreme court case wending it's way up that may take away the forum's right to edit poster's comments.
Not true. Mark, you refuse to learn from consequences- you've been better this last time, but it's taken months of icing you to get you to see that attacking the mods get you thrown in the cooler- both sides get iced when they're vicious, and use foul language- if no one catches it, they're lucky, but it'll catch up with them. The mods get paid nothing but have to put up with personal attacks all the time. Kw, why were kicked off a blog site? Was it because you try to take over and rewrite the rules?
KwMillennial - Maybe you should consider starting your own site so you can make all the decisions?
Until then it might be in your best interest to focus on the topic not the individuals.
It seems you might be still wrestling with everything in life not being fair or just.
Interesting that this response comes on a site where most of the posting is political and is honest conversation about whether or not there should be change and what kind of change. But for some reason the status quo here is not up for discussion and change is actually discouraged? You might want to hold yourself to the same standard when complaining about politics. Because apparently the only acceptable response to unhappiness, unfairness, and suppression of speech is to go start your own country. Do you see the hypocrisy?
Everything in life is not fair and just. Oh well, I guess we should just accept it.
I guess you don't realize how abrasive and sarcastic you are.
If thats directed at me, no I dont. No one has ever called me that. But if I do come across that way, Id like you to let me know what did nsaid that makes people feel that way. We have to have honesty when we communicate. Ive been honest here when telling people how I feel about things. But honesty can definitely come across as rude, especially when people are not ready to listen or when they have their guard up.
The rudest poster ive encountered here is Emperor of Kingwood. Following your lead, I probably should tell him, right?
The most abrasive is the moderator that doesnt like it when people are honest with each other and deletes their words. I dont understand why someone who gets no money to do it, still wants to do it. Suppressing speech is not a public service. Is it rude to say that?
. I donÂt understand why someone who gets no money to do it, still wants to do it. Power. It becomes their little fiefdom. Though to be fair, some do it as a community service.The only reason I came here is to try to learn more about politics from people that talk about it
You're not going to learn much here or any other forum. It's the anoninimity that gets in the way of honest discussion. Face to face people most would back down when confronted with their own hypocrisy.
