Tonight after the debate, I'll be donating again to Obama, as a show of support, win or lose.

I don't care whether Obama "wins" the debate or not, I'll be donating again tonight as a show of support!
Who else will show their support tonight?

What happened to Harry Reid and his fullcourt press of Romney's tax returns?

I am disappointed that harry Reid has not kept up his fullcourt press on Romney's tax returns!
This seems to be the one issue which could turn Romney's campaign upside down. If Romney is elected without having to show the American public his tax returns It will be a huge black eye for the American election process.

Harry, if you have the information, now is the time to bring the issue to the forefront of the election cycle.

A high 5 to all DUers and compassionate Americans. Way To Go Joe!

Joe Biden beat up on Ryan so bad, John Boehner is starting to cry!

I'm amazed Ryan didn't mention Ayn Rand in his talk about religion.

Joe Biden is ripping Ryan a new asshole, way to go Joe!

Joe Biden is ripping Ryan up at every lie he tells, he is not letting any bull shit fly by without being corrected. I think we now know the recipe for Obama to attack Rmoney!

Keep it up Joe, great job!

Idea for Obama to chalenge Rmoney at the next debate!

When Rmoney blurts out another of his many absurd lies, Obama could challenge him on it, when Rmoney doubles down on the lie, Obama can challenge him to a $5 bet on it. This would do two things, #1 it would be a strong and deliberate challenge to call Rmoney out on his lies, #2 it would allude to Rmoney's bet of $10,000 to Rick Perry yet in a common man's betting ammount. This would remind everyone of Rmoney's former elitist behavior at the Republican primary debate at the same time stoping Rmoney's lie in it's tracks.

What does everyone think of this idea?

It's time Harry Reid stepped up attacks on Romney's tax returns again!

I believe Romney's tax returns is his achilles heel, and I would hate to see that golden opportunity fade away!

I just donated $75.12 to Obama!

I'm so proud to have Obama as My President!

I recently had a post hidden due to what was decided to be a "personal attack".

The thread in question had to do with a liberal who had lost their job for posting a video of him questioning a Chik-fil-A employee at the drive up window.
I disagreed with the majority opinion that he had been a bully, however what I disagreed most was the flood of inarticulate, unintelligent, abusive and derelict use of cussing and swearing. My points articulated this clearly and without the foul language or abuse of original poster, although I did direct it at said poster. The jury voted 5 to 1 against my post, all 5 who voted against gave no reason, the 1 who sided with my post gave a response which showed he/she had thoroughly read my post and that it was actually directed at the bad behavior I was pointing out, and therefore not a personal attack.
I would like to know the reasons for the 5 votes against my post, it seems as though they didn't bother to read enough to gain context of the subject at hand, I can understand that people's time is at a premium, but acting as a jurist carries a burden of due diligence.
I feel that I was speaking out against a certain mentality of some people here which is similar to the vile behavior of the Teaparty, and my less aggressive better articulated voice was shut down.

The fate of liberal compassionate progressive ideas gaining popular support depends upon clear articulation of those ideas to the general public without vitriol and abuse. If the mission of this forum is to support those causes, the manner in which it is discussed should reflect those goals.

I am very disappointed that, in this case, violent aggressive vitriol won out over articulate discussion of an issue.
