      zero interest in or understanding of liberal or democratic politics or policies, and in fact your recent hidden comments demonstrated quite the opposite.

        You pick one area, gun rights, which is not even a left-right issue but an authoritarian - libertarian issue and draw the conclusion, "zero interest in or understanding of liberal or democratic politics or policies".  Like Peter Venkman, you make a poor scientist.

        I am sure you would also like to say that I have zero interest or understanding in DK policies too, yet I know enough to remind you that dragging shit, especially interpersonal shit from another diary is an offense.

          in.

          I don't agree with LL much on this topic, and we all have our pet issues, but the fact that you joined after Newtown, and only comment/participate in gun diaries, for me shows that you are here not because you are an interested Democratic Party member but that you want to try to dissuade or argue with some liberals about gun control. You're probably fortune to have avoided the banhammer and I'd suggest either broadening your liberal horizons or finding a more niche site to participate on.

          I see what you did there.

          is not about personal differences.

          •  On the contrary, you and few select others (0+ / 0-)

            continue to dog me and take every comment as an opportunity to try to start a personal confrontation with me.  Whereas I've made actual contributions to the conversations you continue to pursue me with childish insults.  Your actions are the ones that are disruptive here.  Neither is it your position to hold some sort of Liberal measuring stick to which I nor anyone else must measure up to.  This is something that others have repeatedly pointed out, I believe to you in particular.  Also, if you think that the only areas where I've have engaged in conversation is gun rights, then obviously you've allowed yourself to be blinded just enough to where you've tried to memorize my profile, sufficiently enough to continue to regurgitate the particular date at which I established my named profile, and yet failed or perhaps didn't bother to notice where I do comment; not that it is any of your business anyway.  By the same token, what events prompted me to become a participating rather than passive member of this forum is none of your concern either.  

            Being Liberal does not mean that one is anti-gun and neither have I spoken for no regulation, having made a suggestion for a way forward that is very much a compromise on the issue and certainly not in line with your nemesis and bane, i.e. the NRA. That is a fiction that you have created and fueled with your hatred of me and more specifically of the NRA which you seem to think I am somehow representative of.

            •  as i and others have noted (4+ / 0-)

              you signed up right after a gun massacre, not to express grief, horror or sympathy, but to defend your precious. it says everything about your values and perspective. it also is the only issue on which you speak.

              you have given no evidence of being interested in, much less liberal on, any other issue. and your position on your one issue aligns with right wing extremists. and your recent hidden comments speak volumes. you are transparent.
