  •  Yeah... (3.86)
    I read this earlier. It really infuriates me. I'm a guy... I can't even imagine the kind of rage I would have if someone made me go through that against my rights.

    It's like a dictatorship, this country. We are a living in a fascist state. It's just the reality now. It actually IS fascism.

    If they drag this out to 22 weeks and this woman is forced to carry her baby to term...

    Fuck the United States.

    This is a broken country.

    Bitches like Thomas need to be dragged out in the street by armed men and beaten within and inch of their lives and left... for the rats.

    -9.38:-7.59 U.S. blue collar worker vs. CEO income in 1992 was 1:80; in 1998 it was 1:418.

      •  jiacinto is not a troll. (none)
        Jiacinto is an extremist conservative Democrat.

        It's mindboggling, but there you have it.

        •  Oh I'm aware of who Jiacinto is (4.00)
          But his extreme abuse of the ratings system, withotu even getting into his comments (which could be a case of extreme disagreement but I'll keep that judgement to myself), says he's a fuckin troll to me.

          Hell, over 75% of his last 25 ratings are 1's...and two of them are yours of course and I read them and for the life of me can't imagine what substance had infiltrated his cranium to justify those.

          With that pattern I'd say he was a troll if he was more liberal than myself or even you if he still exhibited that prickish behavior.

          Back to the diary.   And no...I don't think there's anything that can be done about this situation....the money is only the excuse they used but they'll take it all through the courts again and keep on tryin to reach that 22week deadline at which point apparently she's fucked.

        •  I've always said (4.00)
          jiacinto is a troll.  Not because of the conservatism, but because of the assholism.
          •  well (none)
            doesn't that make armando a troll then?

            ok... ok... just kidding.  not about the asshole part, but the other part.

            •  Heh - and yet not at all. (4.00)
              Armando responds to people's comments individually and on occasion modifies his arguments in response to new evidence or arguments.  He respects his opponents enough to engage with them seriously.  Jiacinto says the same damned thing over and over and never changes a bit, condescending to all those around him all the while.
              •  well (none)
                i would actually qualify that to say that armando sometimes does that.  other times he just calls you names because he lacks an argument and then claims that it was somehow your fault.
                •  some feel that way. (none)
                  I'd take Armando over Jiacinto any day.  Partly that's 'cause I agree with the former most of the time and the latter almost never.  But it's also because Armando will call you an asshole or a moron, but Jiacinto will be like "what you fringe left types [ie people who believe that, like, reproductive freedom is a nice idea that should be stood up for occasionally] don't understand is that you're killing the Democratic party."  Which to me is a ;ot more offensive.
                  •  or just 1 rate (old skool troll rate) (none)
                    and say nothing

                    He gives no reason to nobody for any old skool troll rate.

                    He's a troll plain and simple.  All he's done lately is troll rate and keep his mouth shut.   If you're gonna be an ass and troll rate a post that contains nothing close to deserving of a troll better stake a claim to your rating with words.   Trollrate and speak up or get the fuck outta dodge trolls.

                    I rest my case.

                    George W. Bush, Resign NOW.

      •  I sure don't agree with the ratings abuse, (4.00)
        but I also don't like the gratuitous violent fantasy.  That's the style of the Freepers or the little green morons.  Let's be better than that.

        Thomas has engaged in an unfathomable abuse of power and bad law.  What should happen to him is impeachment.

        Perhaps we should think of that as part of our agenda for 2007?

        (By the way: Do the google bomb: Jerry Kilgore.)

    •  emotionally satisfying - yes (4.00)
      .. but leaving out red meat for trolls as well as the freeper hordes doesn't accomplish much.

      I won't waste points rating it.

      A petition for Censure of Thomas for this would be an interesting exercise - sure to fail, but interesting nonetheless.


    •  Impeach Clarence Thomas (4.00)
      This qualifies for impeachment.

      We're all pretty crazy some way or other; some of us just hide it better.

      •  It really does... (none)
        I think I'll call Boxer tomorrow. So far the story doesn't seem to have much in the way of legs/exposure...

        but Thomas really doesn't deserve to be serving on the Supreme Court. It's really pathetic when you step back and look at it... in the big picture/Historical perspective. It's so sad these conservative freaks have to hold us back.
