In Reply to: Some Call it Bullshit, Others Tripe...Whatever posted by pancho on January 29, 2002 at 10:44:35:

: You can afford to theorize your arse off cause itīs a warm, round, protected, cozy arse.
>>>Again, how ironic as these words above
are the same words i used to you, someone
who commands social change but sits in a cozy
environment and points fingers instead
of attending to this fire.

Others donīt have that luxury and need to make those snap judgements you so decry. When the house you are in is on fire, you donīt pause to contemplate how it started, how long it might burn, where youīll go once you get outside, if you get outside at all cause youīre standing around asking stupid questions...
>>You, like me, are also not inching yourself
towards this fire. You are posting clever messages
5-6x a day and this of course does nothing
to extinguish the fire in an immediate way.
You have described the fire, the causal
agents of the fire, the fire's history
and the fire's future. You've done
nothing more than I've done.

: The sane person NOT still writing essays from the warmth of ignorance and inexperience, just gets the hell out of the fire.
>>Dear, again, we are doing the same thing.
We are both writing essays and hearing ourselves
talk. You are reverting to name calling because
i believe that is part and parcel of your
military-like prose, "toughen up will ya! if i call you a bitch or a ho and you take offense
to it it's only because your a whiny brat!"
And i retort with the same emotionalism because
I am weak and it is hard for me to not respond
to someone insulting me.

: You go on and on about how you just canīt have a meaningful discussion around here.,..that there are soooo many things you are just aching to talk share ideas and the rest of it. Yet in every post you harp on the same theme...if it isnīt about Fred this, itīs about Fred that. If it isnīt to tell me to go to Iraq and then say "AHA!" when I wont go...itīs to tell me that I wont allow free and open discussion. And ALL of this is because your little Christian fanny is smarting from the lashes and lacerations I have inflicted on it...things you know you canīt possibly deal with in any other way than to seek to discredit the man saying them because he wont take travel tips from you.
>>That's what you do, you displace arguments
by inflicting lacerations with your words.
I can't believe you have difficulty understanding
the fact that emotionalism does not add much
to the discussion of urgent issues.
And, again, I mentioned the "travel tips" thing
because you, like me, also just sit around and
talk about this stuff more than doing anything
that can have immediate effects for these children. Therefore, i wanted to show, and i
showed successfully, how you are no different from the rest of us on this forum in that sense.
