When one of us is under unfair attack! Anyone who prefers respectful, fair approaches to the issues we face on this forum, and in the world. Please give an upvote, a kind word. A defense against attackers. Show would be attackers that we stand together for these basic concepts. This can be a form of humiliation in the town square in days of old. And of course reporting abuse when appropriate is acceptable.

Thanks

keep trying - its closed

Well thank you VQ for your support - but please - ummm - this is not necessary - all of this non-sense is just a distraction and should die a quiet un-remarked and un-remorsed death. Again thank you - but please remove the post. Lets just get on with business - the business of addressing needed change for a better world. Using all of our varied talents strengths skills and approaches.

[-] 4 points by VQkag2 (16478) 1 year ago

Very good. I will do as you ask in short order. I ask that we let the forum have their say and leave it all behind.

Woke up very early, logged on and saw a disturbing incident of attack. Like you, I would not want a fuss made over me. I think though it is important that the attackers should see in black & white where the good people of this forum stand.

Humiliation in the town square is most effective. That is what I was trying to do. Please don't be offended. And maybe seperate your own humility and recognize that whether you or the next victim we can fight back with overwhelming positiveness.

It doesn't have to take away from the real business we care about. In fact we could be stronger.

Peace, I will stop.

[-] 3 points by DKAtoday (34891) from Coon Rapids, MN 1 year ago

Well - thank you and I thank everyone who made a nice comment - I feel better seeing your understanding of me. Now lets just let it go and get beck to important things like making plans for a better world.

[-] 2 points by beautifulworld (21480) 1 year ago

Thrasymaque, remember him? He once told me something in PM that made a lot of sense. He said anyone who supports OWS in no way supports the Republicans. He was right about that. So, all the supporters of OWS have that in common. Some may lean more to the left than the Dems, but they sure as hell aren't Republicans. So, quit arguing. It isn't going to help anything.

[-] 4 points by shooz (17656) 1 year ago

Remember him?

I fought him tooth and nail.

Pointed out to him, that he was an unrepentant tyrant.

If he returns?

I'll gladly do it again................:)

[-] 2 points by beautifulworld (21480) 1 year ago

Yep, you are definitely one of the folks who could not possibly forget him. We drove him away in the end, it appears. LOL!

[-] 3 points by shooz (17656) 1 year ago

I'll argue with almost anyone, but bots and spam are just plain tyranny.

As would be the endorsement of such behaviors.

[-] 2 points by beautifulworld (21480) 1 year ago

Most definitely in agreement!!!

[-] 4 points by ZenDog (13084) from South Burlington, VT 1 year ago

That's just it - there are repelicans who show up here with a specific agenda in mind, and some folks are confused, what portions of the suggestions we find here actually support the preservation of the gains repelicans have made in destroying the economy over the last 30 - 40 years . . . .

[-] 7 points by VQkag2 (16478) 1 year ago

You are of course correct Zen. We must challenge any comment that doesn't support the 99%.

We can't pretend they don't exist. You're always standing strong against that tide and I for one appreciate it.

Thx

[-] 4 points by ZenDog (13084) from South Burlington, VT 1 year ago

quite alright - I'm just like that.

I don't care for the stench of bull shit

[-] 5 points by VQkag2 (16478) 1 year ago

That stench is from rotting of their souls.

[-] 4 points by beautifulworld (21480) 1 year ago

That's just it, though, it is confusing. Because, if you want more broader sweeping change, which OWS as a movement clearly does, then you can't work within the current system, and that, in the short term allows the Republican crap platform to continue, but in the long term maybe we can make some real gains. I'm for working for the short term and the long term at the same time. I think it can be done. That is why I think all the good and very smart people on this forum may disagree to an extent, but I think their arguments all have validity and don't actually counter one another. Everyone has their own role to play in moving this country in the direction it needs to go in. It's just not a completely linear trajectory.

[-] 4 points by VQkag2 (16478) 1 year ago

We DO each have a role to play. I agree. We may not agree with every role/tactic but we should try to lift each other up, and not tear each other down.

We need each other. We need the support that comes from others struggling together.

Reforming from within may not be possible.

Recreating from scratch may not be possible.

But each might progress with the others support.

[-] 3 points by beautifulworld (21480) 1 year ago

Well said, but they may just be possible, too.

[-] 2 points by DKAtoday (34891) from Coon Rapids, MN 1 year ago

A balance must be found - and that will take much work and acceptance of each other to achieve. A new maturity.

[-] 4 points by VQkag2 (16478) 1 year ago

Quoting Thrasy is an interesting choice. And to suggest any one should "quit arguing" is unfortunate.

Arguing is good. disrespect, name calling, personal attacks are the kinda things to quit but I wouldn't want to discourage free speech/expression.

Peace, & Solidarity.

[-] 4 points by beautifulworld (21480) 1 year ago

But, he was right, it's like preaching to the choir. And, I don't mean to quit arguing about issues that matter. I mean to quit arguing over nonsense and making ad hominem attacks. They have no place here. Seeing people as your enemy that are actually on the same side as you is stupid and unproductive.

[-] 4 points by VQkag2 (16478) 1 year ago

Seeing people as your enemy that are actually on the same side as us is not productive. I can agree with that.

I could support not arguing over nonsense, which is a general statement. I suppose one persons nonsense is anothers important issue. In any event I can agree with your general statements.

In the end though whatever we might argu about should be done with respect. Without the personal attacks, vulgarity and without the mean spiritedness I see so often.

Can we agree on that.? You didn't take as stand on that.

Peace

[-] 1 points by beautifulworld (21480) 1 year ago

I didn't take a stand on that? What do you think ad hominem attacks are?

[-] 4 points by VQkag2 (16478) 1 year ago

I don't know. I'll look it up.

Aahhh. It's a fancy way of saying no personal attacks.

Very good. I been ejimacated.

Thx

[-] 1 points by beautifulworld (21480) 1 year ago

Nice. We agree then.

[-] 6 points by VQkag2 (16478) 1 year ago

Definitely.

Everyone should behave! (me too)

Peace

You are out of control. Babbling, ranting, Do something positive instead of tearing down.

How can we lift each other up? What ideas do you have regarding direct democracy?.

discard hate, embrace love. "Leave the gun, take the cannoli" F.C.

What are trying to say? You are against health care for all, and for bombing innocent civilians.

I don't understand?

We support a new system of govt. I believe it will inevitably evolve. I believe we must use the existing corrupt system to lay the groundwork for that new system!

1st and foremost keep your conservatives from taking anymore power, Elect progressives, money out of politics/publicly funded campigns, election reforms. And much more.

You believe in attacking me, DKA, Shooz, and anyb one else who doesn't agree with you.

Peace, You must relent

[Removed]

[-] 5 points by VQkag2 (16478) 1 year ago

Do you think if you send your rant in highlight (yelling) I will believe it?

There is something a little troubling about that.

Please take it slow. You aren't accomplishing anything.
You don't get any supporters to your point of view, You don't get any points with OWS, you just get more obnoxious.

Please lets join hands and sing a song of love & solidarity.

[-] 6 points by VQkag2 (16478) 1 year ago

unemployed/self employed dude. I do this because I am passionate about my country. This movement and I want to help create a new system of govt.

All positive actions. You are only about tearing down, personal attacks. negativity.

Who's paying you? Why the need for the multiple logins.?

Peace. embrace the positiveness of inclusion.

Why do you say that? Is DKs gender important? Are you DK's spokeswomen?

Peace

[-] -2 points by TryingForAnOpenMind (-358) from Yonkers, NY 1 year ago

Yes. I am the appointed DKA Spokesperson. The gender is relevant you idiot.

[-] 1 points by DKAtoday (34891) from Coon Rapids, MN 1 year ago

Appointed by whom?

Why should gender have relevance?

Is that not kind of a divisive comment?

[-] -3 points by TryingForAnOpenMind (-358) from Yonkers, NY 1 year ago

oh no. DKA found me. go away please.

Not a problem all you need do is leave me alone and go away.

leave me alone. you are the biggest jerk that posts here. And that is something...because there are an awful a lot of jerky people posting here.

Why - then - in the name of sanity - would you - keep bumping this post?

You are like having a very nasty and confused PR person.

Should you be renamed - Barnacle Boy?

Do I need to scrape you off of my hull?

Hey dopey, I wish some body would scrape the mold off of your pea size brain.

Jerky how?

Just what are you implying?

[-] -3 points by TryingForAnOpenMind (-358) from Yonkers, NY 1 year ago

That was not an implication. It was an insulting, however honest opinion re the idiot.

Hmmm. How would that apply to yourself?
