or to entertain his fellow tRump supporter and Hubpage user, colorfulone.
This is very possible. Ever notice how when ahorseback posts a million threads per day colorfulone is suspiciously quiet, and vice versa?
Side note: speaking of being quiet, does anyone know where PhoenixV went? I miss him.
I'm thinking Paul is a secret conservative and really likes me .
This would actually be funny if it wasn't blatantly immature ,
You know that I'm right about almost everything I post , It must really really suck to not be able to break my arguments with your constant leftist group thought . Isn't it that which makes you all so angry ? That you can't "one thought " your ideological opposition into your way of thinking enough for a little patting on your own backs ?
Be proud boys !
Honestly I’m starting to think ahorseback may actually be Donald Trump himself. They share a similar inflated ego and constant need to talk about it.
Has anyone ever seen ahorseback and Trump in the same room?!
He simply regurgitates Fox talking points. Not worth giving any credence if you have at least a grammar school education. Unfortunately, many from the right are sadly lacking in basic grammar.
And I'm not angry at all, simply dumbfounded at the ignorance of some of Trump's mislead fans.
The President's own info from the intel agencies--which he didn't address today in his speech--state there are internet trolls on social forums pushing Trump's agenda. And they usually use dumbasses to accomplish their goals. Is there a connection here? Ooooh, I think there is.....
Possibility, Randy, it would not surprise me
Perhaps I should change it to SuperTramp and Clark Cant?
Join the Club Amie , can't beat the argument , join the "group think ".
I had felt the urge to comment, wasn't certain how to go about it without sounding judgemental. Good job, GA. Couldn't have made a better observation.
Actually, I was raising an eyebrow at the group attack on you. I know you rarely bother to read anyone else's posts but it does help; in order to maturely respond.
If and when I don't read another post , it's only in the full realization of certain peoples shallow ideological content . I actually read more of yours than most others but again , when group thought persist's , I ignore.
I truly should ignore this entire rot , its simply snot nosed drivel in all honesty , Perhaps you can see now why I often use the terms despised by some out there , shallow , immature , naive .........For them , How about that very old Irish saying " If the shoe fits wear it "?
Another point I will make , I do not post statistics , charts , media content , quotes etc....because I believe that thought process is more legitimate than the majority of false media out there today . The mind wins over charts any day , my posts strike a nerve or this thread would never have began . Perhaps THAT is why the left despises independent thought and analysis .
Do you know that I am actually center in my political beliefs , I am just stubborn about that center , the left is obviously fluid , in fact too fluid. Perhaps it's simply the stubborn that the left hates so much and not the right after all ?
If you're center in American politics, ahorseback, then God help American politics. By the standards of the rest of the world, you're pretty far right.
Marisa ,Marisa , Marisa , you have too long listened to 20 % of the left direct 90% of the news media IN America . Perhaps what you really need is a visit TO America and not some unreal focus on U.S. P.C. politics from far , far away .
Has it never occurred to you that if 90% of the media all over the world (not just America) is saying something, and a tiny minority of right-wing media is saying the opposite, that just maybe the majority might be right?
I still don't know how you are deciding which media outlets are trustworthy and which are not. It seems to me your attitude is, I will trust the outlets that agree with what I want to believe.
Marisa , If it looks like a duck , walks like a duck , sounds like duck and act's ducky it's more than likely, according to you leftist media , a chicken ! Do you mean That 90% of media that I don't listen to ?
Is that supposed to be an answer to my question?
Horse doesn't answer questions, Marisa. That's why I don't try to converse with him.
Marisa ".........90 % of the media is saying ......a tiny minority on the right " Is the biggest lie you've ever told here for one , Randy , debating your immature non- facts would be a pleasure , I'll send over a couple of nine year old's .
OK, substitute "90% of the media is saying.... and 10% of the media....." and now answer the question.
You're the one that gave the 90% statistic.
"90% of media is biased and don't know what they are doing , who they are deciding an election for , or why they are collectively doing it to begin with ".....sounds more like my beliefs , your's , who the heck knows ?
Either way , those who still firmly believe anything the news media says ; have a serious problem with any sense of reality .
Answer me this , How DO otherwise intelligent people surrender them selves completely to this incredibly biased media , most of you on the left are intelligent , fairly independent and wholly stubborn , so why that early and complete surrender of self respect. and political intelligence ?
But how do you know that 90% of the media is biased? What led you to that conclusion?
I take your statement to mean that you trust the other 10%. How did you decide that 10% was trustworthy?
I'd really like to know how you researched and came to that conclusion.
Because I grew up in a time where there was news media honesty , integrity , accuracy and truthful reporting . I have observed the evolving and yes, growing sense of sensationalism , ideological bias and marking of today's crap .
I KNOW the difference between truth and fabrication , I know the difference between a manifest brainwashing and a reported incident . I can instinctively tell when a lie is being perpetrated for effect even in news media reporting .
I dare you go back in time on You Tube and watch 60's , 70's even 80's news casting , local or national , syndicate or not , you will see the morphing of propaganda into delivery , The "face booking" of media , the influences of social media slander , bias and personal judgement's into news broadcasting . I'll tell you this in all honesty , A total idiot could be one of today's news media writers and many are .
Another reason ,although I certainly didn't need it to know , Harvard - a liberal college , actually did a study /poll about the last year's election media bias and neutrality in America and determined news media and it's delivery was biased , sad part is ; The people being polled knew it too. It all depends on the source , but it ranges , in my opinion from 60/ 40 to 85 / 15 % fake , false or bias reporting
True today , people are not reading whats offered from true media integrity ,accuracy , or honesty ,they seek in reading what they want to ideologically believe .
I assure you, he is not politically center in the U.S. He is misjudging himself. Badly.
To be completely fair, ahorseback had said “This would actually be funny if...” and then GA posted a study about people misjudging funniness. So I can actually see where he may have thought it was directed at him.
You should go with your urges Live to Learn, it's not healthy to hold them in. ;-)
Congratulations on joining "Group Thought ".
I'd be Addressing this seriously if I thought it worthy but so far I see nothing but the exact thing I've said all along about those who disapprove of anything but leftist "Group Thought " , you obviously are all bothered by the real truths . the truths that cannot be of your ONE group's singular ideology , the truths that pointedly defend the opposing debate and makes you cringe while in your little " safe spaces " ?
Note ; If you all can't handle the political debates here , I suggest Go back to your Face -Book page and "like " yourselves until perhaps you've attained enough cyber -hugs to calm the inner self. re-think your ideological mindset and then consider returning here where maturer and fully developed minds debate in today's political reality .
Any of you above , Want to Alinsky Ahorseback ? Fine , do not expect respect from me .
Not my favorite hubber, but I don't like personal attacks on specific hubbers.
After some reflection I apologize for my original comment. Though a part of me did think you’d take being compared to Trump as a compliment.
No apology required ;
Understand , I am obviously slanted to right of center , as I've stated earlier . I have also stated numerous times I don't even like Trump , I really don't like the 'can of worms " opened by and because of him from the left . The candidate doesn't matter only in that he won against all the others . I would far rather have had Marco Rubio or Ted Cruze ,....yet they were ALL establishment party people who would change NOTHING .
I joined Trumps movement BECAUSE and only because he's an outsider as you all know that . If the real change that we all want IS possible , Trump will bring it to the table or he will lose his following , pretty simple . The positive CHANGE promised by Obama didn't happen however , did it ? Now we give Trump the try.
Compare me to Trump if you will , my Trump support is party support only , honestly I'd rather almost anyone else was in his place as long as they supported the re- Americanization of our country that Trump does ! NO ONE else does that.
Credence , greetings. I define it as a returning to a more sovereign way of governing our nation and people and our resources , frankly a return to anything from the Obama era downturn . An instantaneous end to the selling off of America's greatness , it's economic strengths , it's political strengths to the highest bidder thus the selling America's very soul . Clinton would have had that "basement sale" .
The Clinton's would have not only continued down that path by doubled down on the "sales " , the alternative would grow government even further , sell our military strengths down the road to the highest bidders ,the middle eastern interests that donate and donated to the Clinton foundation . The alternative to Trump would have been the imminent death of America , as we have all known it .
It would have become the "United States of Clinton Foundation "ultimately .
While, I disagree with your premise, the clarification on your part is appreciated.
Once Trump gets the corruption out by the firing of the Obama holdovers , there will be hope and you know what ? There will also be change . It is too bad that the Obama's won't be able to put those two words into their Presidential library .
Of course , don't you think Hilary would have gladly stolen Pres. Obama's legacy too?
For clarification , I feel no personal attack here , I merely consider the source , Paul's been around a long while at least previously , This thread is merely one phase of Alinsky-ism . Quite frankly an attack like this makes the source look rather immature , naive and frankly , charactorably lame . I'm sure at some point Paul or someone for him will excuse this rather than address a real reason. Notice however Paul never does offer positive debate points , just juvenile lines.
To me however , this is a perfect character trait of the new left and Paul speaks well for them .
Really , I think the title of this should have been ,Ahorseback , How is it that such a simple and humble man so blatantly destroys all political debate from the left ?"
EVERYBODY should read the latest news media bias polls from Harvard , The 90% NEWS MEDIA BIAS # I've often spoke of is even a low percentage with MSNBC ,CBS etc...........
Bias does not mean lies. It means the facts are reported in a biased fashion, but the facts are still stated.
I don't need to go back to the 60s and 70s to view old newsreels, I'm old enough to remember them. And yes, I agree there's a huge amount of cr@p passing as news these days. However, you still haven't explained how you decide which ones ARE trustworthy and unbiased?
Marisa , I simply know a lie from the truth , while you need to consider this , how many people who voted in this last election are over forty ? Check out USA polls as to age of voters and how they voted by ages , as the age of forty nears the swing is more than evident towards conservative votes . Over forty the shift is greater , millennials voted by the greatest percentage 90 % or so for Hilary .
I say , It is no different than understanding truth from fiction , bias from honesty , older people generally know the difference and the percentage of bias far more than the younger generation do now and quite possibly ever will and I don't think that our young are maturing as quickly as they used to . Youth , younger adults and blinder idealism is a constant in our humanity , Idealist's lack the better parts of intuition , being worldly and gained maturity until later years .
Otherwise , why do studies show we grow more conservative as we age ? It's the same with reading our media Of course , there are those who never gain .
By the way "......which ones are biased and untrustworthy "? Comes from sifting through it ALL , not from a fixation of Fox as you and many imply . I read an incredible amount of news , 3-4 hours a day min. and from all sources .
