    ... you're not answering my questions, so I am not going to answer yours.  Nice try at reframing our argument, tho, congratulations!

    You say:

    no, and by uprating very obvious hateful, discriminatory and racist against Americans as a national origin (which are US diversity Americans, women....)

    You are becoming less and less coherent -- that statement makes no sense at all.  I AM an American bob, just as much as you are.  We are not a race.

    You are the one who has accused others of being racist against "Americans."  I pointed out Americans are not a race.  What is so hard to understand about that?

    You are also accusing me of things I have not done.  Where have I argued about the bill here?  I have indeed argued about your own record here at daily kos, as a community issue -- and that is indeed relevant.  It is relevant -- as a Daily Kos community issue -- that you TR often in your own diaries, a big weakness, imo.

    It is relevant that you do not engage with respected posters who disagree with you and instead throw out ad hom attacks as to their character when you do not respond to questions about your own affiliations which are also relevant to this debate on a Democratic site, and when it is found to be a fact that you uprate comments which use RW talking points and link to RW sites.

    So that is what I've been talking about in your diary.  I'm sure you're out of TR's now as you tend to fling them around constantly.  I'm not, but you're not worth TR'ing, imo.

    Poor you.

      you've tred me repeatedly and always accuse, spam and most importantly uprate obvious posts that are blatantly racist, discriminatory and derogatory towards Americans.  You have TRed labor activists who complain and say the blogs are a waste of time due to you absurdly oblivious, unaware of positions, policies, global agendas and bills in congress...and most importantly who is behind them and the affects they will have on US labor as well as overall economic direction......who stay on blogs all day to... name call.  Yes, in fact you have TRed some very good labor organizers in fact, which is one of the reasons I find you people so pathetic.

        Again, never responding, always attacking.

        I've given out no troll ratings in this diary -- those are all yours.

        Nor did I give out TR's in the previous diary where you TR'd me repeatedly.

        Get a grip -- you are losing it.

        Oh, and by the way -- in case you have forgotten -- Americans are NOT a race!

        •  ad hominem attack (0+ / 0-)

          as usual.  Let's see now, why does Peter DeFazio want a congressional trade office?  What are the issues?

          Can you answer that?  I think not.  

          What is the issue with Costa Rica approving CAFTA-DR?  What other additions w.r.t. global worker migration are in that trade agreement?

          Can you answer that?  again, I think not..

          Which leads me to this question, why are you even on a political discussion board when you seem to only excel with ad hominem attack and do not understand the first issue w.r.t the global economic corporate agenda?

          Maybe I should ask, what does ad hominem attack mean and what does it imply about the knowledge base of the issuer?

          how about this one, who is David Ricardo?  Why is current trade policy not free trade?  What element is in the theory that is being turned into a variable and thus the theory actually collapses in it's model?

          F for the class again?  I think so!

            You keep weasling out of responding.

            As I said, this is both a DKos community issue and an issue of your own bad framing.  Americans are not a race.  You are just plain wrong about that.

            I'm not in the mood for a quiz, bob, and certainly not from you.  I'll let my record here at Daily Kos speak for itself.

            Guess, though, that because you're out of troll ratings, having used them up in your own diary, you  have to resort to this kind of tantrum.

            Your behavior speaks for itself, too.

            Oh and by the way ... this is a blog, not a class.  And you are certainly no teacher.

            •  it's because you are ignorant (0+ / 0-)

              of the issues and why you try to avoid not answering the policy clearly cannot and are simply doing some sort of glorified cheerleading thing on this blog pretending to be an "activist".  

              Not understanding the first thing about insourcing or trade, yet name calling is not my idea of political activism and many others to be sure.

                Keep weasling, bob.  Good luck with that.

                •  Q.E.D. (0+ / 0-)

                  What does Q.E.D. stand for?

                  What is a downward sloping demand curve?

                  What does equilibrium mean in labor economics?

                  A basic labor force equation is:

                  LF = E + U

                  What is E and what is U?

                  How is the United States unemployment rate calculated and how does that differ from the European calculations?

      race card himself. And calling someone anti immigrant is not racism. Possibly xenophobic. I don't know. More likely just anger at immigrants, blaming them for the problems of America. Isn't that xenophobia?
      It's a global economy wheather we like it or not. And immigrants help America be competitive in the world.
      And being pro immigrant is not anti American. We are all decended from immigrants and should be proud of our heritage.
