But... without "tolerance" how could anyone be expected to tolerate
you vomiting up all that paranoid, demented shit from deep inside your
Nope. We need tolerance.
Time to adjust your tin hat and make sure the meds you are taking are
You may want to choose some of your words more carefully. The word
"Tolerance" can take many forms including bigotry, prejudice and hatred of
those who are different. Solely for the reason that I use a wheelchair, I've
experienced "intolerance" a number of times. I'm perfectly fine with being
held to account for my actions. I'm not fine with experiencing prejudice and
intolerance for things that I have no control over.
With all due respect, *everyone* has experiences some form of
"intolerance" at some point, but the answer is not to jump up and down
and scream for more tolerance. I do not wish my deficits - even the
ones not of my own making - to be "tolerated". I want my virtues and
"Tolerance" is a bottom of the barrel notion that people cling to
because they have such low expectations for themselves and their
society. Moreover, to be fully tolerant is to tolerate evil ... which
is more-or-less where the West has been heading for decades.
The OP on this thread was clapping his hands and jumping for joy
because a black man and a woman has been involved in a major electoral
competition. So what? Neither of them had anything to do with being
black or a woman respectively. They didn't *earn* these distinctions
by merit, hard work, perseverance, or education but we're supposed to
cheer because the "right people" got political traction.
Never mind that they are both contemptible personally and
professionally. Never mind that smarmy condescension oozes from every
pore of their public proclamation. Never mind that they are class
warriors (even though they are personally wealthy). Never mind that
they are race and gender baiters (even though they claim to be
"tolerant" of everyone). Never mind that their ideas are destructive
to liberty, economic nightmares, and violate the very founding
precepts of our nation. What's *realllllly* important is that "the
chick and the black dude" are running. Right.

None were truly viable candidates. Jesse Jackson? A no chancer, but
maybe, and I emphasize maybe, one who was necessary to the process of
getting Obama nominated as a candidate for a major party. I seem to
recall Ferraro going for VP, but my memory could be off a bit.
Sharpton? Tawana Brawley's protector? If he put a hat on all the
grease in his hair and mind would cause it to slide to whatever coast
Your point is take'n Lew and I like to look for something good in things
also, however as far as what has really been accomplished from the state
we are now in Porky Pig could have been a valid contender, now that
would have been different. sorry Lew.
What difference would it make? The whole electoral process is a sham.
Rife with electronic corruption.
Voter's lists are being manipulated, like in 2000 Florida where people
were turned away because they had the same name as some criminals...
those alone would have changed the outcome of the election. Same shit
in 2004. ... and there WILL be shit in 2008 'IF' the election is
close. Obama only stands a chance if it is a land-slide. Close won't
cut it...'within the margin of manipulation'.
A candidate can be honest, what WILL screw him up is when he resigns
himself to the fact that he allows others to make decision for him,
and as the future POTUS, he'll have to trust those around him.
