Yman is my New Shadow over at TalkLeft. DA was before he was banished. I think DA is jealous.

Just wanted to say that I feel very sorry for your struggles against Yman over at Talkleft not. Have a good day, and hopefully he'll teach you about our Constitution without using all them fancy-pants big words that you has trouble understanding.

He has proved his point. Rantings are him.

That certainly is how you win friends and influence people toward your cause, as this gentleman would be glad to explain to you: Over the past two years, we have seen Republicans use long-held racist imagery in portrayals of Obama. The president has been depicted as a communist witch doctor, a man inclined to plant watermelons on the White House lawn, and we watched in disbelief as his face was placed on an "Obama Buck Food Stamp" along with stereotyped pictures of fried chicken, barbecue ribs, Kool-Aid and the obligatory watermelon. What does any of this have to do with public policy or conservative values? Here is a man who excelled academically at the finest schools in the world, has a wonderful in-tact family, worked hard and rose to become president of the United States. Yet in spite of his accomplishments, the president is still labeled an illegitimate, socialist, African witch doctor and has his face superimposed on a chimpanzee. If this can be done to a black man who is the leader of the free world, how long will it be before fellow Republicans insert my face on a chimpanzee? These behaviors also raise larger issues for African Americans and other minority groups within the GOP. How can I look my parents in the eye and tell them I'm a Republican in spite of these offenses? If he were still living, could my Latino father-in-law be proud that his daughter supports the GOP, in spite of the constant anti-Latino rhetoric that comes from the party? Can gay family members reconcile my support of a party that seeks to strip them of their basic human rights? These are not issues which pit moderate against conservative views, but rather consequential matters which transcend political positioning and speak to universal human values. There are a number of Republicans (and Democrats) who will view my switch to "decline to state" as a net gain for the Democratic Party. However, I reject the theory of zero-sum politics which claim we live in a binary world of Democrats and Republicans, where a lack of support for one side works only to empower the other. Having now been active in both major political parties, I've discovered the common prohibited activity is critical thinking. President Ronald Reagan once famously said, "I did not leave the Democratic Party, the Democratic Party left me," and I can now say that I have been abandoned by both Democrats and Republicans. In order to stay true to myself, my family and values, the only rational, responsible option is independence. Racist Cartoon of Obama forces me to leave GOP As a commentator on that page put it: What a shame that things have changed so much over the years! I remember when the office of President of the United States was to be respected! Whether or not you liked the person sitting there, he was "Mr. President". Talk like I've seen on some of the websites out there would never have happened because you couldn't insult the president! I think we should go back to that era!

Would someone tell him that I don't care if anyone likes me or doesn't like me?? That's one of the very few advantages of getting old. You realize that putting up with some things just isn't worth it.

"Unlimited tolerance must lead to the disappearance of tolerance. If we extend unlimited tolerance even to those who are intolerant, if we are not prepared to defend a tolerant society against the onslaught of the intolerant, then the tolerant will be destroyed, and tolerance with them." - Karl Popper

“Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human freedom. It is the argument of tyrants. It is the creed of slaves.” - William Pitt

"Logic. There is little logic among the cultural elite, maybe because there is little omnipresent fear of job losses or the absence of money, and so arises a rather comfortable margin to indulge in nonsense." - Victor Davis Hanson
