Be respectable if you want to be respected.

If you have something to say that is meaningful about my post, I am listening.  Otherwise, I don’t really give a rats ass what you or anyone else thinks.

When you people attack the messenger, rather than the message, you do not deserve respect, and should not receive respect, from me or anyone else, other than your own chorus.

If specifics are “prattle” to you then you are truly lost. The very definition of prattle does not fit what I have said nor Ozark Michael so you do fit the definition of nonsensical talking with little content or meaning.

For being against the likes of Sara Palin your language runs in her crowd. The knee jerk turns to violence you take in your words is cruder than hers. She actually just hints at it. To me violence is the last resort and to be used strictly for protection from aggressors. That includes you ThomasG should you find me on your enemies list and want to carry out such a despicable deed. I would never do or say the same to you & would advise you to at least use nicer language and be a peace maker not a warmonger. Try to convince us with your ideas not blunt repetition as I and others do.  We need to pull together right now not tear each other apart over some differences in how we see the world. We all want to live happy productive lives don’t we? Let us find our similarities and go on from there, eh?

Tautology is the unnecessary repetition of a concept or description.: as when someone says it was a radioactive nuclear attack, or Israel is an ultra right Fascist state or Dick Cheney is a fat, obese politician or George Bush is a stupid, intellectually challenged politician. Ozark Michael, Sarah Palin didn’t write that book. It was written by an extreme right wing (what else?)ghost writer. Sarah Palin is a mediocrity with a big mouth and the education of a fifth grader. The Paris Hilton of politicians. Do you really want to be governed by Paris Hilton? Hasn’t America been humiliated and bankrupted enough under George W.Bush.

You are still talking to MarthaA and trying to frame failed and bankrupt Right-Wing Conservative EXTREMIST ideology and doctrine as something more than the Hitleresque fascism that it is.

Do you even know what fascism is?——I doubt it.

Most likely you are just following along with your nose firmly planted in the hind end of some Evangelical Christian preacher doing what you are told is God’s will in support of fascism, trying to serve the Worthy Wealthy and waiting for God to heal your misery as your reward for faithful service to fascism, fascism being corporate governance with the counterfeit face of God, but you knew that already, Right???

Politics is like a Battlefield and on the Political Battlefield the Right-Wing Conservative EXTREMIST soldiers of the Right-Wing Conservative Movement and the Right-Wing Conservative EXTREMIST Media Echo-Chamber have given NO QUARTER to the Left and liberals from the time of Goldwater through Reagan, Bush I, Bush II and still practice the blitzkrieg of total war against the Left and liberals.  The Right-Wing Conservative EXTREMIST Movement declared total war WITHOUT QUARTER on the Left and liberals and total war without quarter is the conditions imposed upon the Left and liberals on the Political Battlefield where the Right-Wing Conservative EXTREMIST Movement is engaging the Left and liberals.  The Left and liberals are obliged to practice Political Warfare the same as the Right-Wing Conservative EXTREMIST aggressors or be destroyed.  This has been the political reality in the United States since the time of Goldwater through Reagan, Bush I, Bush II, is the political reality at present and will continue to be the political reality until the war ends or an Armistice is signed

With regard to tautology, the dictionary definition of tautology is as follows:

tautology: Unnecessary repetition of the same idea in different words; pleonasm; the use of needless words; redundancy; also, an insistence on it.

The word is duopoly; the answer to duopoly is reform of the Democratic Party in order to get the necessary votes to legislate enactment of a Multi-Party Political System.  I have been advocating that this be done for about eight years and trying to sow the seeds of understanding that will lead to elimination of political duopoly in the United States that is replaced by a Multi-Party Political System, but it is difficult to get past all of the meaningless drivel in peoples minds that they see as intelligence, so that they can quit flogging the uncontrollable flames of political duopoly and initiate a Multi-Party Political System in the United States that will provide political representation for all by coalition governance.

Enough of the generalities you are so good at repeating, how about some meat on that bone? Some substance to your arguments (accusations) to help us slow folk along to understand your razor sharp wits? Note that simply repeating is ineffective to what you ultimately want us to do. Follow what you say and copy how you say it. We are not followers of such narrow minded violence loving gruesome fanatics either. But we don’t hit people over the head with mindless tape loop recitations of little substance. But heavy on the arm behind the back, beating the head into the wall kind of writing both of you engage in is no improvement over your enemies. In fact it is too much like them. No really that is how I see it. Don’t you? Can you? You really need to.

I shall perform that experiment in writing for you to see. One of your own ThomasG to show you why you fail all the time.

“You are praising NightGaunt in your joint capacity as a shill and an operator for the Right-Wing Conservative EXTREMIST Movement, by way of sophist propaganda, as a fellow {...} working the Left liberal marks, that you are paid to scam there in the {...} Boiler Room with tautological {...}; you deny what you are doing with the repetition of incessant, idealistic, inculcated, fervor that pleases your minders and promotes the aims and agenda of the {...}.”—Nice isn’t it? [I could have expanded to the same sentence said over again with just slight modifications. Not much there.]

You must understand I am doing this not to insult you but to instruct you and also find out where you developed this peculiar way of writing. I am an interested fellow. Not to hurt you, just to learn.

You do know that tautological means to reference ones self in an argument? A logical fallacy. Also in taxonomy of animals it is a repeat like Homo Sapients sapients for example, another is Gorilla gorilla. Tautonomy is the variant.

MarthA/ThomasG—thanks for answering no questions..

” And, you’re wonderful in your own mind….”

Actually, MT, I think NG is pretty great, too, from what little I know of him. He’s smart, makes cogent arguments, doesnt seem to be real ideological, and, never attacks (!!!)those that he disagrees with. He is capable of showing compassion for others (did you lose that or never have it?) Thats usually a sign of an open, intelligent mind.

He practically pleads with you to make some sense. You refuse.

A weak mind attacks, plows ahead and considers NOTHING (even someone’s death) a roadblock to “getting back” at those that wont tow the line.

I think I am describing mainstream, card carrying folks of both parties. The mass of people are sick of you guys. The day will come when US voters will have better choices than Tweedledumb and Tweedledumbass—I hope I live to see it, and if “so far” is any indication, I should be there to cheer them on.

If not, plenty will do it in my place…the sooner these ideologues are gone, the better for the country.

In “you peoples”<b> tautological shell game, do “you people” have assigned operators and shills to work your political marks?——or, do all of you play as operators and shills interchangeably in support of Right-Wing Conservative EXTREMIST tautological sophism, propaganda and inculcation?

A simple yes or no will do. Not this incessant repetition. You learned some new words I see, then run them into the ground as you both always do. So predictable and sad. Under the area in the paper in sociology concerning “strategies to repel persuasion” what both of you two do is “attitude bolstering” (where you ignore the argument given but produce evidence that supports your general argument.) I would add “selective exposure” (ignoring the information to refute it or supporting other positions) a mixed bag really.

Careful in how you phrase your non rebuttles I see a pattern that fits you not me or any of us who are working on our own to see if we can get inside you minds to see what is going on in there. A type of personal profiling by amateurs.

Just run a test on your writing style and remove any major word that is used more than once or twice an you will see why most don’t read your screeds.

Night-Gaunt, Nov.19 at 4:02am, KDelphi, Nov.19 at 3:50am, and the Leader, OzarkMichael, Nov.18 at 8:59pm:

What is it that you people are saying in your post?——that you advocate tautological sophism propaganda and indoctrination, rather than direct inculcation?  Is there a difference in effect between tautological sophism propaganda and indoctrination and inculcation?——and, if so, what is the difference?

So far as I can determine, your preference for tautological sophism, propaganda and indoctrination over direct inculcation is nothing more than an obfuscatorial choice with regard to sophism, propaganda and indoctrination.  My guess is that your preference for tautological sophism, propaganda and indoctrination is based upon the use of tautology by the Right-Wing Conservative EXTREMIST Media Echo-Chamber and that tautological sophism, propaganda and indoctrination from differing and divergent branches of the Right-Wing Conservative EXTREMIST Media Echo-Chamber can be both parroted and answered in different words that say the same thing from Right-Wing Conservative EXTREMIST sophists to other <b>Right-Wing Conservative EXTREMIST sophists, so that the sophism and propaganda of the assertion is reinforced by the sophism and propaganda of the answer.

For the reasons given, from a perspective of sophism, propaganda and indoctrination, I can understand why those who have access to and control within a Right-Wing Conservative EXTREMIST Media Echo-Chamber would prefer tautological sophism, propaganda and indoctrination over direct inculcation.

However, life is choice and YOUR choice is tautological sophism, propaganda and indoctrination over direct inculcation; YOU have YOUR choice and others have their choice.  Why do YOU whine over the choices of others who make individual choices when YOUR choice is part of an organized choice provided to YOU by the Right-Wing Conservative EXTREMIST Movement?

“You people”, Right-Wing Conservative EXTREMISTS, prefer tautological reinforcement to direct inculcation and “you people” use direct inculcation to make that point, over and over again; the veracity of YOUR argument is dishonest and fraudulent, because “you people” make and answer your own questions with the use of a shill to answer a disingenuous argument and perpetuate a scam, as does a confidence scheme.

YOU are the one imitating Hitler and blaming it on me.  You keep harassing me about the shooting til they no longer wiggle which YOU blow out of proportion every which way in your sophist manner to serve your masters, when all that was said was that Conservative traitors when they are found to be traitors in a FAIR TRIAL, should be shot until they no longer wiggle, and I stand by that statement, although I would go along with other forms of execution.  YOU seem to have a guilt complex.

As for KDelphi, here is what she told me:

By KDelphi, November 17 at 3:17 am #

“Dont kid yourself.. MarthA and Company love Palin—she makes them look so smart.”

KDelphi intended that to be insulting to me—and it is.  I do not actually know anything about KDelphi at all, only what she said, but if she makes a decision to insult me, she should figure a return on her investment.  I had not said a word to KDelphi and I saw no logical reason for her to be insulting me, so I returned her investment.

YOU, OzarkMichael, being a proud Conservative Republican just make up anything for your investment, so you get returns on your investment as well. Dealing with YOU and your ilk, makes me think of a poem from school that I have remembered:

If by Rudyard Kipling

If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you;
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too;
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or, being lied about, don’t deal in lies,
Or, being hated, don’t give way to hating,
And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise;

If you can dream - and not make dreams your master;
If you can think - and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with triumph and disaster
And treat those two imposters just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to broken,
And stoop and build ‘em up with wornout tools;

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breath a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: “Hold on”;

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with kings - nor lose the common touch;
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you;
If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run -
Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,
And - which is more - you’ll be a Man my son!

Their frame is of the barbarian, the nobility as Nietzsche spoke of who have need to hunt and kill, to subjugate and put down. Like the blond beast of Africa, has the need to kill “lessers” in order to feel whole, gazells and such.  You can find such mind sets around the world through all times involved in humanity. The Master Morality. The Slave Morality has the better attitude but who wants to be a slave? The idea is to have the best of both moralities in one person, not the worse. Hence the idea of the ubermensch who would be. Creative and free yet careful and strong. Not to subjugate nor be subjected too by others. A difficult prospect for the humanity of today, but tomorrow? Will we ever reach such a station or is it just imaginary and will never be reached? The other more likely choice Nietzsche saw was essentially the couch potato or layabout long before video games but is prominent in our society. Sitting and reading all the time choking on the dust of volumes. Odd isn’t it?

We have been studying this on another forum.  So far we have discussed five important similarities between the agenda of Martha/Thomas and Hitler’s agenda as written in Mein Kampf. But we are only getting started!

KDelphi, you will notice that Martha/Thomas has not defended herself against a single charge. You will notice that Martha/Thomas runs away. Here is the thread where we have discussed it:
http://www.truthdig.com/report/item/20090928_the_war_on_language/

Deference by the Political Left, the Democrats, is what got our nation into the situation it is in today.

Since KDelphi is still blogging, it is possible she made up her situation in order to receive deference, which is what sophistry and propaganda is all about——lies to get your way. 

But, whether sophistry or not, I see no reason whatsoever to give deference to KDelphi because she has a brain tumor. She should do what I told her, spend time with her family and relax.

A Conservative individual with a brain tumor politically blogging against liberals hoping for deference is amorphous nonsense.

KDelphi should realize that there is NO Republican Conservative EXTREMIST going to help her with her brain tumor; and quit trying to put Liberals and the Left down.

If, by the Grace of God we get medical and KDelphi gets rid of her brain tumor, it will not be because of any Republican Conservative EXTREMISTS, that she defends as a “blockhead and dummy”, but Liberals, Congress people like Florida’s Alan Grayson, who is a strong fighter for the 70% MAJORITY Common Population, the people, the public.

If indeed the majority of Americans who vote do vote the likes of Palin in it would be a sad day indeed for the Republic. As for interfering in her book sales? Never.

I still don’t get the republican’s use of sarah palin in their attempt to retain the
white house other than the choice of o had already been agreed upon by those
who manipulate the media to ‘choose’ the ‘acceptables’  who are the ones left
to debate and beat their chests for the top job(seemingly)of the presidency
because palin, as I believe, was not really mccain’s choice and her ‘exposure’ in
the media certainly kicked the republicans out of the white house for the real
choice to be president, o.

And now with sarah’s ‘exposure’ proving as much of her inabilities to be so
close to the presidency which includes her resigning as governor of alaska, I
would doubt she could stand even a small chance of becoming president
unless one considers the medias part in its ability or part in separating the
participants in appointing our president or members of congress by the msm’s
process of ‘who gets on the tube and who don’t’.

But sarah is still a good looking and fertile woman which should not be a
prerequisite to become president.

The Congress (both parties) will prevent ANY meaningful change from occurring EVER - it means SO little who becomes President - our Figurehead In Chief.

The Congress are mere puppets of various big industries - government to the highest bidders.  Every year they get billions to do absolutely nothing concrete.

Sarah Palin is an ignoramus and a joke She will never be President and it shows what a death wish the Republicans have that this is even a possibility in their tiny minds. Wasn’t one total humiliation enough for them? Do they have to put George W. Bush in a skirt for their orgasm to be complete? As for reading her book, as Dorothy Parker once wrote : you can lead a whore to culture but you can’t make her think. Love you Dorothy. They should have made you President.

Do Mickey Mouse sophists and propagandists get paid the same as first rate sophists and propagandists, or does the Right-Wing Conservative EXTREMIST Movement get Mickey Mouse sophists and propagandists at a discount?

I like the cartoon.  (But I never joined the ACLU. And I’m more left than “liberal”. And, I’m scared she might be our next President.) The one - make that two- things I like about S. Palin are:

  She wears glasses.  (I do,too)

  I covet that red leather jacket she had during the
  campaign.

Your post is more attacking of the messenger with amorphous nonsense to deny the message; the answer to your amorphous nonsense is blah.

Virginia 777 said: Its the extreme right charging in…

Time to stop these creeps.

Extreme right charging into what? Palin wrote a book. A book which neither the cartoonist nor the ignoramuses have read yet. But that doesnt stop you.

Time to stop these creeps.. what will you stop her book with? Certainly not knowledge, because you dont care what she wrote.

What will you stop her book with? Slander like the cartoon above? Or force? Will you go as far as Martha/Thomas and demand laws that prevent conservatives from publishing books?

Virginia 777, you are better than Martha/Thomas. You are better than your own rhetoric today

Palin world would you want to live there? We are right now just that Obama isn’t thought of as one but he continues the disasterous and unConstitutional policies of his predecessors going back to his muse—-Reagan. We are still riding the change away from a republic and closer to some kind of theocratic despotic state in the near future.

All I see with the Palin GOP Debacle is the atrocious Right will use Palin like Reagan to play act like the Left in order to get the atrocious Right back into power.  To the Right EXTREME, it is all a game, a power game and people of the Common Majority’s that get damaged in the process are of no significance, fooling the people for power is the only significance.

The Right Conservative EXTREME is hoping for a Palinesque Dream World, like the Reaganesque Dream World that “borrowed and spent” the United States into bankruptcy, deindustrialized the United States for cheap labor, financialized the U.S. Economy for short-term profit and created the biggest financial bubble in the history of the world, that broke in 2008, and from 2008 to the present in 2009, has resulted in TENS of TRILLIONS of DOLLARS of socialized resources of the masses of the U.S. Population to be spent by the U.S. Government to recapitalize private TOXIC capital without benefit to the masses of the population of the United States that will sacrifice for the terms of their natural lives and generations of their progeny without benefit; Palin would be a Republican rehashing and starting the whole “dumb show” all over again, an endeavor in Cyclical Lunacy that is beyond comprehension; except as a Ponzi Scheme, or a Neo-Madoff politician with a view of building a New American Pyramid.

Even Vice President, George H.W. Bush recognized it was “blockheads and dummies” following Reagan, as it will be “blockheads and dummies” that follow a Republican Palin.  The following quote from Mikhail Gorbachev was made during an interview on September 23, 2009, with Editor, Katrina Vanden Heuvel and her husband Stephen F. Cohen, a Contributing Editor of ‘The Nation’ magazine:

“By the way, in 1987, after my first visit to the United States, Vice President Bush accompanied me to the airport, and told me, “Reagan is a Conservative, an EXTREME Conservative.  All the blockheads and dummies are for him, and when he says that something is necessary, they trust him.”

The Common Population must not keep allowing themselves to be “blockheads and dummies” by continuing to follow the Right-Wing Conservative EXTREMIST Movement that started with Goldwater through Reagan, Bush I and Bush II and now Palin to lead the Common MAJORITY against their best interests as “blockheads and dummies” like the “Great Communicator”, Ronald Wilson Reagan and the Right-Wing Conservative EXTREMIST Media Echo-Chamber, Bush I and Bush II.

Any person of the Common Majority who isn’t a Nearly Noble, and even the Nearly Nobles, must ask yourself, why is it that I support a<b> Right-Wing Conservative EXTREMIST Movement of Republican Party Nobles that considers my support as that of a “blockhead and dummy”? 

Each and every member of the Common Majority should also ask yourself why am I not supporting the Political Left, the Left-Wing Liberal Movement that I am a part of, where my best interest is served, and where I am not regarded as a “blockhead and dummy”?

It is time to end American citizens being led as “blockheads and dummies”, as they have been for over forty years, and to make certain that people like Palin are unable to resurrect the whole “dumb show” all over again, that leads to the same place that Goldwater, Reagan, Bush I and Bush II led the United States; bankrutpcy, financial collapse and the masses of the U.S. Population being forced to pay TENS of TRILLIONS of DOLLARS to recapitalize private capital without benefit.

The economy is not in good enough shape to be able to sustain a Republican presidency, without the Common Population going into abject slavery.
