  •  It was pretty damn clear to me! (5+ / 0-)
    You don't think Democrats tolerate extremists? What do you think Sanders is? Or even Warren?
    Perhaps you should consider working on your writing skills.
    •  again I ask (0+ / 0-)

      where did I ever say I consider either an extremist?

      The discussion was about the democrat party tolerating extremists not who I think is an extremist. This is less about my writing skills (though admittedly there are better writers here) and more about the assumptions people make. Like for example you assuming that simply because I point out that some would consider Sanders and Warren extremists that that automatically includes me.

      That's some pretty knee jerk defensiveness.

        fucking sick of you.

        You don't think Democrats tolerate extremists? What do you think Sanders is? Or even Warren? That's just off the top of my head. Neither are really in the middle of the party and Sanders is not even registered as a Democrat.
        "That's just off the top of my head." implies that you think that Warren and Sanders are extremists because in the previous sentences you used rhetorical questions to that end.

        In the final sentence you make a definitive statement declaring both Warren and Sanders to be not "...really in the middle of the party..." and leading readers to the conclusion that they are on the extremity of the Liberal spectrum.

        I don't think you know what you are saying most of the time.

      •  You are so full of shit! (1+ / 0-)

        You must be the most misunderstood person on this site. Perhaps you should spend a little more time thinking about what you're writing since you seem to always be misunderstood.

        •  Always? (0+ / 0-)

          Well that certainly is a stretch but certainly here it should be abundantly clear that people are seeing only what they want to see.

          Thank you for your personal attacks but please tell me what you really think.

            comprehension!

            Here, I'll break it down for you...

            You are so full of shit!
            Here reflectionsv37 made a definitive statement. There's not a lot to parse here. You are full of shit.
            You must be the most misunderstood person on this site.
            Here is reflectionsv37 is making a mild understatement with a hint of a question. He/she is not really sure that you are the most misunderstood person here, but suspects so. Me? I would have gone with 'You must be the most misunderstood person on the Internet.' You see, I'm not sure that there isn't a Mongolian yak herder online trying to order a delivery of hand knitted yak booties for the winter from Amazon. Otherwise I would have been more definitive.

            And the last part of reflectionsv37's comment offers a possible remedy for your lack of clarity in communication.

            Perhaps you should spend a little more time thinking about what you're writing...
            Meditation is good and reflectionsv37 is doing you a real solid with this suggestion. But he/she didn't go far enough IMHO. I would have suggested sitting on a mountain in Mongolia. Perhaps you can talk to the aforementioned yak herder about his problem? It might be a business opportunity in disguise!

            There, I hope that helps.
