  •  no worries you are in good company on the petty (0+ / 0-)

    part and now your 'defense' makes a lot more sense.

    BTW since you are going to bring comments here let me just say that since I translated an English saying into German of course that's how it will look in google translate.

    But then again as I said don't worry about being petty you're in good company.

    •  I responded to you because your argument was bad (2+ / 0-)

      I actually don't really care if you truly know German or just typed it into Google Translate to look good (although I will say that it would be an awfully big coincidence for Google Translate's version to happen to be exactly the same--translation is an art and it's very rare for two translations to be the same). I just found it kind of funny.

      •  and you are a hypocrite (0+ / 0-)

        you are arguing that I should give someone the benefit of the doubt even as you don't.

        I am done talking to you I don't like hypocrites but I especially dislike petty hypocrites. I don't care what you care about or don't care about. Your actions speak for themselves and they speak to someone I want nothing to do with.

        Translation generally isn't an art not for such a simple sentence. It's not like I wrote a paragraph or a novel and you know what? Even then you likely would still see similarities with google translate because German grammar is somewhat similar to English grammar. About the only 'art' to translation is when words are  difficult to translate  like Torschlusspanik or Hilfsbereitschaf because they either somewhat or completely not literal translations or you use more obscure meanings for some words.

        As I said in that thread, either you accept I have some command of German or you don't but I realize now a little late that there is no real way to prove it because the people I am dealing with are not interested in acting in good faith and frankly anything I say could be from (insert translator here).

         So you please keep being petty keep being a hypocrite and keep defending 3rd party advocates. Now that I know what you are I simply want nothing to do with you

      •  What's remarkable here is that (0+ / 0-)

        IMO, there's not much of a third party around to advocate for.

        But I try to tell the truth, and I do prefer ideological consistency to constant betrayal, that's true.

          focus almost entirely on vanity Presidential runs. If they put their money and energy into state and local races they might actually get some good done.

          (Well, the actual problem is even if the Greens or whoever displaced the Dems, they'd become corrupted just as easily. The problem isn't the name of the "more left" party; it's the power structure around it.)
