  •  If you want to engage in speculation, (0+ / 0-)

    then speculate all the way.

    He had drugs in his system does not necessarily equate to 'he took them voluntarily'.

    Unless you have further evidence that actually show him taking the drugs, there's no evidence that shows whether they were self-administered or not.

    Disclaimer:  Apart from two diaries on DK, I've never heard of Manning, nor know of any reason I should know or care about him, apart from a sense that if there was any foul play involved, I'd prefer it come to light, just as in any other potential criminal enterprise.  But I haven't heard anything yet that seems to tie him into any major political scandal.

      Wow!

      I have no idea WTF you are talking about; none.

      There are a lot of deranged comments in this diary, but yours WINS!

      Did you actually just suggest the gov't puts the drugs in his body?

      Despite everything the family said about knowing details about his drug abuse?

      WOW.
      Just WOW.

      •  I was just throwing out the same sort of thing (0+ / 0-)

        you were in your diary.

        I think it's all nonsense, but if you're going to smear whoever this guy is (and did I get his name wrong?  That shows you just how much I actually care about this story.) with drug usage, and then throw in a one off line about it not actually having any link to whatever accident anyway, you might as well go whole hog on the CT.

      •  Ok, I did get his name wrong, 'Hastings'. (0+ / 0-)

        But I reiterate, I was just adding a comment I felt worthy of the diary.  I don't believe, nor care about it, really.

        •  do you spend a lot of time commenting (0+ / 0-)

          on things you do not care (or know a damn thing) about?

          Your CT about the drugs being put into his body is the most ridiculous comment I have read on Daily Kos this year.

          And this site is fucking FILLED with ridiculous shit these days.

          •  When I'm bored, I sometimes do. (0+ / 0-)

            I don't know if I would say that amounts to 'a lot of time'.

            But your diary seemed incredibly ridiculous to me, so I returned the favour in that comment.

            What, exactly, is the point in writing a whole diary about someone having drugs in their system, when you have a line right in the diary saying it was concluded that drugs had nothing to do with whatever accident the guy was killed in?

            If it had nothing to do with his death, then what is it apart from character assassination?

            •  read better (0+ / 0-)

              You fell into the convenient "Skipping words" trap some other poor readers have.

              Instead of continuing to show/prove your ignorance of the matter, I suggest reading the comments here, or maybe even a link or two before continuing. Good advice for you to consider in the future as well.

              Help me out, Abe.

              Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.

              •  LP, I've generally been impressed with your (0+ / 0-)

                writings in the past. I'm neither impressed with your diary, nor your comments or responses to either myself or other commenters here today.  

                I am sorry that I let my annoyance at your insults from your first response onward goad me into responding with my own rather insulting evaluation of your 'story'.

                Your assumption that you have some higher truth based on syntax, rather than actual evidence, and your clinginess to your own definition of 'unlikely', and claim that the problem lies with your readers, rather than your own interpretation of the materials you read, would, I think, speak more to your own issues, than those who wasted their time reading the diary or responding to you.

                Feel free to hurl further insults, I won't be bothering to read them.

                •  Insults? Nope; none. (0+ / 0-)

                  But nice try at playing the poor me victim card.

                  You came into the diary spouting CT BS. Take your medicine like a man. That a handful of others also erroneously objected to this post does not validate your errors. I see 21 recommends on the diary currently. Your minority opinion is noted.

                  However, here are the words you have used to describe my posting about an AP news report.

                  nonsense
                  smear
                  ridiculous
                  character assassination
                  And most absurdly
                  CT
                  Coming from the dude who wrote this
                  Unless you have further evidence that actually show him taking the drugs, there's no evidence that shows whether they were self-administered or not.

                  The government put drugs in his body.
                  The very definition of CT for you.

                  (Had you bothered to read anything before posting that you would know there is voluminous evidence.)

                  But somewhat fair comment otherwise.

                  Your error was merely thinking something = nothing.

                  An important mistake to not make.

                  Oh, that and the whole CT thing.

                  I am sorry that I let my annoyance...
                  Non-apology apology accepted.

                  Time will tell if you have learned your lesson(s) and will try to make amends for your actions.

                  I, too, am sorry that I let you goad me into responding to you. Your initial comment deserved nothing more than HRs, but I am following protocol to not HR in my own diary. I should have ignored you. Will do so starting....NOW.
