Jimbo vs Davey

Postby Jimbo » 09 Mar 2018, 07:55

It's obvious that Davey and I have contentious and different views, especially with regard to relations between the US/UK and Russia and the 2016 election results. On the Trump thread Davey seems to have more supporters in his camp most notably Snarfy, Sneelock, Bobzilla and Hatz. While I have practically none except for one fine BCBer who from time to time sends me interesting links via PM which generally support my way of thinking on these matters. But just out of curiosity I'd like to see for myself if anyone is listening and heeding my POV. Thanks.

A single bullet should suffice if one stands in front of the other.

I wouldn’t de-platform either. I don’t agree/disagree with everything, but enjoy the different opinions.

Crook shot? I thought he flounced after a Harvey hounding?

Ugh.

Look man - if you want validation, there’s nothing wrong with asking for it. But I don’t really need to be made into the leader of the opposition. I’m pretty sure that the only thing Snarfy, Sneelock, Bobzilla and Hatz consistently agree with me about is disagreeing with you. Snee and I in particular have a number of longstanding political disagreements where you and him might even be more aligned.

I think you are ultimately a decent-enough guy. I get how it feels to have to defend your position against a group (I’ve certainly been there here on BCB). But nobody forces anyone to take and/or continually defend unpopular points of view in any particular online forum. At a certain point, if you get that the venue is hostile to your beliefs and you’ve gotten all you can get from discussing them with a particular cast of characters...perhaps you consider backing off of that subject.

But you don’t back off - which I HOPE means that you still get something out of the debate. I mean, I’m happy to punch the clock and show up for the day’s brawl as long as we’re both learning things by being pushed. But if it’s just making you feel bad - I don’t really need to be involved in it. Ultimately I don’t dislike you. I simply think you’re deeply wrong and have concocted a comically fascinating confirmation bias loop that I can’t help but want to challenge.

Sure. I’ll even vote for him.

Let’s all give Jimbo a big online virtual handjob!

:lol:
shit, Jimbo. I argue with Davey more than you do!
listening to /heeding your POV? okay, a show of hands. Has anybody read more of your goddam links than me, Davey, hatz, etc?
there are PLENTY of places on the internet to pour your opinions in a dish like milk for kitty kats to lap up but this ain't one of those places. you don't want people to respond to what you post? you just want people to agree with you?
okay, fine. Jimbo, you are absolutely right and I am absolutely wrong.
was that sincere enough?

Anyone still supporting Trump is either in the 1% or delusional. The man is a con-artist and a criminal.
I know people ripped off by him and I met the scum back in the 80's and he was dishonest back then as I heard him screaming at someone on the phone
and his secretary was rolling her eyes. He had no idea I was outside his office and pretty sure the secretary got reamed after I left.

It's funny because it's true, as they say.

Anyway, agree with the goodwill, except w/r/t to countenancing any Sandy Hook "conspiracies." That's beyond the pale.
