      They hire those people to "control the online dialogue." To me, LALO was pretty bad at it, or lazy rather. She never really posted a legitimate argument...just a link from a wackjob website, then her only posts were simplistic : "nuh-uh, Obama did it", type of statements. Maybe her boss actually read a few of them and realized she only spent about 30 minutes a day on it.

      Yes it is possible, as to what you say. It's just either part isn't likely.

      She didn't seem the type who really worried about ganging up on in a computer-related forum. I could see it, if she was in a room(physically) with people, then fear would have some effect.

      Otherwise, it wouldn't matter. As for just being another poster? Her actions went above and beyond the actions of the average poster. Therefore, it's unlikely- not to mention- the junk she was saying, was too specific. wink

        Here, I'll help.

        There was this thing called an election.

        The whole point of the election was to acquire the most electoral votes, each state has a certain number of these electoral votes.

        George W Bush and Al Gore were in a tight race in the State of Florida, when the count was over it was determined that G.W. Bush won the electoral votes and the Presidency.

        But Al Gore was unhappy about Bush winning so he demanded a recount which G.W Bush won again.

        At this point Gore decided to go to court for the right to telepathically decide who a voter voted for. The democrat heavy Florida Supreme Court said this was ok.

        Finally this case reached the Supreme court of the United States and the competent judges ruled that the election had been final and ordered the officials in Florida to certify G.W. Bush the winner.

        And liberals have been beside themselves ever since.

          Interesting spin.

          "But Al Gore was unhappy about Bush winning so he demanded a recount which G.W Bush won again."

          Rather, the count was very close, within the statistical margin of error, and given the closeness of the election, and the suspicious actions on the part of W's cronies in Fla, Gore asked for a recount, which is pretty standard when the count is that close, no matter who is ahead. But Gore did it wrong: rather than ask for a recount of Florida, he asked for a targeted recount.

          "The democrat heavy Florida Supreme Court said this was ok."
          As they should have, since a recount in a close election is S.O.P., but they ought to have rules that all of Florida would be recounted.

          Then W's crowd sued to stop the targeted recount, and not do any recount at all.

          There were so many wrong decisions by so many parties it's really hard to say who was the wrongest. Even the SCOTUS made a wrong decision when they ruled that the recount would stop and the first count would stand, in effect ruling that no, the actual count of the votes in Florida aren't important, and W should be president. It is, I believe, the first presidential election to be won by decision.

          "And [people who care about democracy] have been beside themselves ever since."
          There, fixed it for you.

                Apparently we're not the only ones who see the similarity between Ms. Harris and Ms. Nicklaus of WI.

                Feel free to read the whole article. I've excerpted the relevant lines.

                http://uselectionnews.org/wi-a-preview- … es/852617/

                Similarities between the battle for the swing state of Florida during the 2000 Presidential Election and the Waukesha County judicial election that took place last week could be indicative of the early results from key states in the 2012 Presidential Election next year.

                The votes were so close that differences reported in just a handful of counties could swing the race in favor of either conservative Judge David Prosser or liberal JoAnne Kleoppenburg, and both campaigns were thrust into the national spotlight because of a single issue, WI Governor Scott Walker’s battle against public sector unions.

                Then, at the last moment, after Kloppenburg was unofficially claimed to be the winner, Waukesha County Clerk Kathy Nicklaus reportedly found thousands of unsaved votes on her personal computer, similar to the cases of late discovered and “dimpled chad” ballots that pushed Florida Secretary of State Katherine Harris into the public’s eye and make her the butt of poll jokes to this day.

                Prosser’s team has hired Republican lawyer Ben Ginsburg and Kloppenburg’s campaign has added Democrat Marc Elias to their ranks in order to debate the legitimacy of the 14,000 votes discovered by Nicklaus, as well as to defend each side in a federal investigation that was called for by Wisconsin Representative Tammy Baldwin, a Democrat from the 2nd District. Nicklaus has refused to step down and released a statement Tuesday that she will finish out her term, amid calls for her resignation.
                The break down for the Supreme Court election showed much closer results, with 32 counties for Kloppenburg and 27 for Prosser, and the residents of WI divided almost perfectly in half.

                As to "Take THAT Governor Walker" -- yes, the people of Wisconsin are not taking his anti-union bullying lying down!

                Republicans are likely to claim a victory for Prosser as a vicarious victory for Walker if the legal battles, which could last the length of the summer months, turn out in favorite of the conservative incumbent.
                Democrats could claim a win for their side in the fact that no one expected the judicial race to be so close, Prosser was chosen with almost 100% of the vote in 2001, and had no major competition in that race.

                The heavily divided state will likely be entangled in recount, recall and election battles through July or even August, as amid the chaos of protests in Madison and recount battles in Waukesha, three WI state Senators have already faced demands for recall from both sides. Republicans Dan Kapanke and Randy Hopper have already had petitions filed against them by Democrats, and on Saturday State Representative Jennifer Shilling offered to “stand up to the Governor” and challenge Kapanke’s seat. Republicans claim they have enough signatures to mount a petition for recall against Democratic State Senator Robert Wirch, but as of Wednesday nothing has been filed.

              I said she appeared to be gone from HP and mistakenly stated her account was gone (and apologized for my mistake).

              There had been much speculation that she is/was a paid poster.
              And there was much speculation as to whether that constitutes spam and is against HP terms of service.

              It seems that she has voluntarily moved on to a different stomping ground.....

                You can read the thread here (http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/69262?p … ost1513988), but what triggered my decision to never again waste my time with her was this:

    But that's what happens when you espouse Christian values or conservative values.   Look at what you liberals do to Sarah Palin and Michelle Bachman.  Amazing.  And you don't even feel a sting of conscience about it.  You'd say these things in front of your children.  You'd teach them to say these things and have this attitude.   You'd be frothing if 1/100th of that poisonous venom and vile innuendo were directed at a liberal atheist.

In a political debate, people expect to have their ideas attacked, or they should expect that, anyway. People also reasonably expect that their characters will not be attacked (though this is becoming more unrealistic, reasonable though it may be).

          So, are you willing to satisfy my curiosity? Did the non-banned person call you a liar, or did he merely say that one of your statements is false? One attacks the idea, the other attacks the person.

      Actually, I called you a liar, and I was banned....so, again, you are incorrect.

      However, as long as corporations skate the tax code, I can skate a ban.

      Now, in this same thread, you are called out for distorting an article, and you just ignore it. The proof is actually right in your posted thread, and in the article you list.
      So, tell me....what does that make you?

    I appreciate what you are saying, PP.  However, I am interested in ideas, events and political figures.  I want to talk about facts and ideas and opinions.  I am not interested in getting to know people.  That is a dangerous thing to do online.  And it quickly spills over into personal discussions rather than more general discussions in an open forum.  The only thing I want to know about you is your opinions about specific political topics and ideas.  Political discussion.

    And yes, I did bring up lady_love158 because I am troubled by all the personal attacks against her on this forum.

    She was banned for a month because she went off on Moonbeam apparently.   I can't find the post in question or if I have found it I sure as hell don't recognize it as any sort of personal attack.

    Gotta go now.

      I think you misunderstand the point I am trying to make.  I'm not talking about getting to know people personally.  I'm talking about treating them as individuals, not ideologies.  Reading their posts and trying not to leap to wild assumptions based upon what you think a liberal or a conservative believes. 

      That is all.

        You are a better person than I am for trying. For her it's black and white with victimization as a topping.

        Do you have any idea how many times I have been banned? So stow the carp that LaLo is the victim.

          Oh sure Doug. Compare yourself to LaLo. Ha ha!
          You may have been banned 639 times. That seems about right, although it's probably way low sad (sorry to say).
          But .. have you ever been banned for a whole MONTH?
          Imagine 30 long days and nights without any forum contact.
          THAT'S serious bannage reserved for only the most specialest offenders.
          So if it's true that that is where LaLo is, there's really no disputing that she IS the biggest victim evah lol lol!

              You have just personally attacked yourself, which should result in a ban.  You should report it.

    That is a very sick statement.  There is no proof.  The man is crazy and he has nothing to do with Palin. People who say such things should be ashamed of themselves.  But as liberals I understand that shame went overboard long ago.

      Actually Ann, there is a link between the two. As a conspiracy-believer, you might like this!

      A college professor in San Fransisco was getting threats very much like the ones Giffords was getting...so much so, that the police went there to investigate.
      Turns out, this professor had gotten in Palin's cross-hairs, because he was questioning the amount of money she wanted to speak at an event.

      This was written in the San Jose Mercury News.

    I may be misunderstanding your meaning here.
    California is run by Jerry Brown. He's hardly conservative!
    Doesn't change the fact that our state is broke, tho!

    So I guess that makes you... half mistaken. I would not presume to suggest a deliberate "lie" on this one. smile

    And I have a general question on the "lies & liars" point.
    It is quite common here to see generalized LIARS statements.
    Example: Liberals LIE. Liberals are LIARS. Liberals need to stop spreading LIES.
    Now, if I identify myself with that political persuasion, is that accusation personal against me?
    Am I not being called a LIAR by virtue of affiliation?

    I can't remember the name for this logic but it goes like this:
    All Ds are Liars
    You are a D
    Therefore, you are a Liar.

    Just this:

    "Then, at the last moment, after Kloppenburg was unofficially claimed to be the winner, Waukesha County Clerk Kathy Nicklaus reportedly found thousands of unsaved votes on her personal computer, similar to the cases of late discovered and “dimpled chad” ballots that pushed Florida Secretary of State Katherine Harris into the public’s eye"
