Gregmal I doubt you have any idea of the basis of that discussion between Cardboard and Ericopoly, so as Eric said .....

Wrong again. On a roll though, keep it up.

Presumably some derivative of this thread:

https://www.cornerofberkshireandfairfax.ca/forum/general-discussion/a-plea-for-help-from-ericopoly/msg333336/#msg333336

And if you noticed, I happened to mention that I think for the most part, people's personal lives/situations should generally be off limits....What were you talking about? Actually, nevermind. No one cares.

Sorry, I missed that and agree with you on the above, which was the point I was trying to make.

Interesting thread. My rule is always that what people say about other people tells me more about the people doing the talking than the people they talk about.

I agree. It's funny how the disguise is always a self-portrait...

The election is over. Biden will become President in January. Looking forward to the Politics section going away. The discourse is deteriorating further (if that was possible). Time to move on before lasting damage is done.

Funny that I don't have to come begging on this website to prevent my wife from getting her fair share.

So who is the true loser now?

Cardboard

That was an unnecessary cheap shot. That is the second or third time you have done that to other board members. I would think that you are a better person than that so perhaps in future we could all avoid that. When people on the board are open enough to discuss personal problems or ask for advice, they shouldn't have to worry that someone uses their openness against them. JMHO

Dude, please - give me a break already. This from the guy always telling us Trump supporters what a bunch of enablers we are to a psychopath, and by association, we are the same.  Don't throw stones buddy - you of all people have no tolerance for opposing views.

I think there is something to the "thirst for vengeance".  The first thing Communists always do after coming to power is start a purge of dissenters and enemies of the revolution. You can see that thirst in these quotes from Reich and AOC. Yes I know they aren't calling for mass-murder yet, they are just for destroying a lot of lives not ending them.

You mean like Trump did with Lt Col Alexander Vindman, his brother, and others?

That worthless POS made a complete fool of himself at the Congressional hearing. Trump didn't need to do a thing to make that guy look stupid.
"Call me Colonel Vindiman please"... Talk about an egomaniac...oh, yeah, and the Colonel doesn't have anything to say. I think Trump meant this..and I "heard" he said this...but I can't tell you who I heard it from..

Talk about a DC swamp rat - oh, yeah, and he's our star witness.

I don't think that Breitbart alone is a balanced diet.

That's not fair. He mixes in dailycaller

Do as I say, not as I do. Another characteristic of the liberal personality.

I can call you something, you cant call me it.

I can mispronounce peoples names and its fine, you do it and its racist.

I can enrich family and friends through schemes, but you are corrupt.

I order lockdowns but go to restaurants, hair salons, and events, you can not do any of that or we'll stick the government on you.

I can tout conspiracy theories, but when you do it you're in a cult.


I'm sure theres plenty more.

This gets an A+

Some people get enraged when forced to look in the mirror.

How does one judge moral superiority? Is there some Moral North Star we all should aspire to be like?  ;D

So, being a liberal is a personality type?

"But what if this is not merely a trend but an entire personality type? A new paper in the scientific journal Personality and Individual Differences posits a Tendency for Interpersonal Victimhood (TIV), an archetype defined by several truly toxic traits: a pathological need for recognition, a difficulty empathizing with others, feelings of moral superiority, and, importantly, a thirst for vengeance."

I think conservatives and liberals are essentially indisguishable personality wise. In fact if nothing else this thread is clear proof of that. You find exactly the same threads among liberals where they wonder if conservatives are fundamentally bad.

Your two tribes who are more a like than different. You actually have a lot more in common than you think. Because you have so little experience of non-modern non-western culture you don't get how similar you are.

The thing that alarms me about threads like this is...WTF is wrong with all of you!!. You don't have any family? No fucking friends. Never met a nice liberal???!! I know tonnes of salt of the Earth liberals...nicest, most generous people I know. Either you must not get out much or things are so polarized your not talking to your own family. I know more kind generous liberals than conservatives.

I recently was on twitter and a guy said that he wouldn't hate women if he had ever met a kind-hearted one. I thought the same thing I am thinking now...WTF IS WRONG WITH YOU?!?! You don't have family. No friends. Never met a kind-hearted woman in your life. This thread is exactly like that.

Maybe we all need to just get the fuck off the internet and go out and talk to people. Your getting all this bullshit from the internet and its completely distorting your perception of reality.
