Posting direct quotes from you is a lie? Wait...that's a trick question...

Here's a little test for you.

Quote #1 :  John said, "I killed Sue"   -- Most would read that quote and say John killed Sue.  However what if Quote #1 was only part of what John said and the full quote was:

Quote #2 John said "I killed Sue is what CBW said" 

If the person who put Quote #1 up by editing out "is what CBW said" did so to create the FALSE impression that John killed Sue then the editor of the quote is a LIAR, right?

That is exactly what you did CBW, but I am sure you have pages of spin, spin spin

The problem with your example is that in it, the first quote leaves out pertinent information that alters the meaning of the statement, whereas my quote of your remarks didn't. Your entire posts that I paraphrased:

I have a family member who lives in CA. He was able to get legal marijuana for "migraines." Great guy but changed his life for the negative.  If you put aside the alleged "medical" benefits, which only a few would need (if at all), what is the POSITIVE AFFIRMATIVE argument FOR legalizing pot?  Don't tell me it will do no harm (that's stupid) and don't tell me it will reduce crime (also stupid) what is the POSTIVE reason to add it to society as a legal drug? What independent benefit does it bring?

Give it your best shot. State the case for legal marijuana, other than the same recycled arguments I discussed above.

I am not closed to it at all.  You said I glossed over a couple of strong reasons? Did anybody post a reason why the drug is so beneficial to society that it should be legalized? that was my question. Some people posted arguments why LEGALIZATION would be good, but my question was the drug.  The closest I saw was your guess that it might be a good alternative pain killer. Did I miss something?

What of that was left out, which lead to a mischaracterization of your position?

LOL, in otherwords, "give me the case for legalization except for all the the reasons that I have already concluded are untrue based on absolutely nothing but my own personal opinion."

Intellectual dishonesty: An argument which is misused to advance an agenda or to reinforce one's deeply held beliefs in the face of overwhelming evidence to the contrary.

Your only response is to point out some shady distinction between "the argument for legalization" and "the argument for legalized marijuana". You might as well be holding a neon sign with an arrow pointing at you that say's "Intellectually dishonest" at this point.

The meltdown has begun.

It will soon become a storm-off. 

Followed by the inevitable return.

weakest of weak sauce .. sorry you have to do better than that (if you can). That stuff might work with some of the schmucks that hang down here (no doubt that is why you live in the Cove) but not me, not interested

ROFLMAO.  I am happy to let my integrity match up against yours any day.   The mere fact that you would try to spin your edit of my quote illustrates the point.

Solving our problems isn't nearly as important as figuring out how to blame them on Bush.

You know, I just can't figure out why everyone thinks you're an extremist.

Everybody doesn't think I'm extremist. You cons on this MB do. Oh yeah. I forgot. You aren't a conservative.  ::)

Trying to read through this whole thread since my last post in here and I have to stop at this one. I am not a friend of Illuminator but I must say... Calling him a conservative just points out how much of a flaming lib you are.  I read on here all the time and for years now.  That guy is no conservative but I'm sure in your marxist fairytale he qualifiy's as a conservative but really?  He's laid out where he stands and conservative wouldn't come to my mind unless I was a flaming marxist.   Painting yourself as whatever is more in line with what you're doing here.   Illiminator is a conservative? lol too funny

The only thing I was trying to  point out with this thread was the FACT that Romney never had a chance.... once he fell in line with the establishment of the republican partty.  I'd also like to point out that both parties are extremely corrupt when it comes to the primary elections.  The establishment elects the winner.  They decide.  granted, early on someone could gain a foothold and force them to change their thinking but It's more or less decided by the elites, ie establishments of either party.  The Republican party is broken.  The only way Romney or any repub could have beaten Obama was to buck the Party establishment which Romney did not do. I suspect that had more to do with insecurity on the candidates part than anything else.  Romney had a history of waffling.  He just went with the establishment when his only chance of winning was to go with the insurgency.  As I said.  I believe the Repub party is broken.   As a life long republican until 08 I can attest to the fact that MANY who lean republican can't sign on to the christian right agenda OR the Neocon warmongering Empire BS spread by the mainstream of the party.  That is all.

Um...maybe he doesn't qualify as a conservative to you because you are a right wing nut job, perhaps? If he's not a conservative to you, then what is he? Him not meeting your litmus test for conservatism speaks more to what you consider to be a conservative than it does me being a "flaming Marxist". It also speaks to your complete lack of basic understanding of what Marxism is, but that's even less surprising.

You are a "nut job" unless you fall in lockstep with one of the two parties and the status quo  , jbear. Didn't you know that ?? I mean how can you argue with the results so far ?

But to speak to the issue : using standard definitions ,  Romney can not be considered a traditional conservative  . Romney is best described as a neocon .

What is your point? I was wrong? Ok. You win. I was wrong.

And Barry, if a Republican, would be a moderate Republican... it is all so easy to see if no one is watching as the criteria are moved about.
