  •  I'm sorry you were attacked (10+ / 0-)

    for defending Veterans for Peace yesterday.  (((Horace)))

    I still am sickened by the poster who said it was the fault of the 74 yr old VFP man who fell because he shouldn't have fallen backwards after being shoved...

    Complete bullshit.  

    I'm thinking Rush is having a "seminar" on how to post to blogs :)

    Now we get "teabaggers had permits"... yeah riiiiight.

    •  Well more than the insidous nature of these posts (7+ / 0-)

      bother me.

      1) It was a call out diary that made the rec list.

      2) The poster in that diary called me a nutjob in another thread. Since I suffer from mental illness that was under handed.

      3) The post of mine that was called out had breaking in the title, which a reasonable person would conclude that the information therein would be sketchy, incomplete, and in some cases wrong. I waited over an hour to get a more solid lead that I could link to the diary in question after reading unsourced reports and watching unclear videos that I could not use in the post. Also in using the word attack in the title I did greatly tone down the emotional nature of what my sources were relaying.

        Most who were in that other diary have never been in the streets protesting.  You were THERE. You WITNESSED and as I stated... it was people like you who keep people like and my daughter SAFE by taking your photos.  Thank you.

        And now as we are hearing more.. the people were BRUTALLY ATTACKED.  

        I'm seeing more and more posts that are donut worthy.  Divid and conquer.

        I can not believe someone is insinuating that this movement needs "pacifist violence"

        What a load of horseshit.

          •  Horace Boothroyd III & Damnit Janet, please (0+ / 0-)

            don't take this wrong.  When I read the poster you are referencing, my take away is that of something to consider.  A probability to ponder now & be prepared for.

            With all due respect, it is very difficult to communicate merely by words on the net.  Not everyone is able to eloquently write their thoughts so that 100% of the readers get what is being conveyed.  

            Sometimes, it really helps to read with a Buddha's eyes. Consider that a word can be taken out of the context intended.  Or consider the diversity of beings reading or posting.

            A diversity that is reflective of the 99%.

            You are of the 99%.  I am of the 99%.

             We are not the 99%, are we?

             

            •  I'm not Buddah. (0+ / 0-)

              I am emotionally frail and having my personal status attacked instead of my opinions are difficult for me to adapt to.

              •  I think my comment is not in the correct (0+ / 0-)

                queue.  Please know I am not attacking you or anyone with my comment.  That is not my nature or my intent.  Just trying to point out a message to ponder in the other commenter's post.  I am so sorry if I have added in any way to your pain.
