    Hmm, I wonder if Mr. Catalino is/was dismissive of approval ratings when they apply to politicians he approves of…

    Did Republi-Kong EVER like Mr. Obama? I think not. Did Ken the Cartoonist ever like Mr. Obama? Not that I recall…

    Striving to achieve the same ratings as Filthy Feel-her.

    Why put such an obscene gesture in your ’toon, Mr. Catalino?

    ^The ignorance of “conservatives” especially on blogs like this, isn’t nearly as disturbing as the PRIDE they take in ignorance, and refusal to seek real facts.

    Trolling endlessly, with no point but attacking intelligence requires a lot of faith, maybe in Ayn Rand??

    Let’s address your own ignorance regarding “red states”. An ignorant individual paints with a broad brush and labels everyone in a particular geographic area “ignorant”. Ever been to upstate New York – it looks like the southern part of my native Alabama. Ever been to Huntsville, Alabama – my home town? We have the highest per capita number of engineers and PhDs in the United States. What did they accomplish – well, they designed built every space launch vehicle that NASA has put into space, designed and developed the TOW anti-tank missile, PATRIOT missile batteries and number of commercial innovations in satellite and geospatial technology (and other technologies) that are now part of everyday life.

    There are rednecks everyway and I met and observed many in the Syracuse, NY, while I was working on my doctoral program. New York is a blue state, correct?

    Until you’ve traveled to 43 states and 22 foreign countries, like myself, just keep your ignorance to yourself?

    Thanks in advance for your cooperation.

    Interesting. According to Gallup, Obama and W are, at this stage in their presidencies, tied in approval ratings. Clinton was a point ahead of Reagan.
    Of course, Fay Wray was alive at the end of the film and King Kong was dead. Survival rate should also be factored in.

    Hey Church, I see you’re calling people Obamabots again. Over on Markstein a few days ago you called me an Obamabot because I said that the Fort Hood shooting wasn’t terrorism. After a little discussion you agreed that the Fort Hood shooting wasn’t terrorism. Would you care to reconsider your use of this characterization?

    Talk about pot calling the kettle black. You are one of the most passionate, dedicated left wing Kool Aid slammers. Apparently unable to think past “Obama is holy and benevolent”, and of course “All who do not think like we do are evil and stupid.”

    That is pretty damning of the Huffington Post itself (hardly impartial, or even pretends to be impartial) says the polling firm was left leaning.
    Wonder if they actually conducted polling or drank some Kool Aid and made some numbers up…

    I never used the term “workplace violence”. And why should I compromise? You were wrong and you admitted it (very grudgingly). If I say that 2+2=4 and you say 2+2=6, should we compromise on 5?

    Can we continue with that discussion? I posed a question for you — if we agree that terrorism includes attacks on non-combatants in an effort to cause general terror in a population, would you agree also that the bombing of Hiroshima counts as terrorism? I know you don’t like moral relativists, and I was just wondering how you, as a moral absolutist, would evaluate that attack.

    If we’re going to keep bringing up Katrina, we also have to talk about the Democratic Governor who refused help when Bush offered it. He had the military in there within three days, against her wishes.

    So in your opinion it’s okay to kill non-combatants in some circumstances and not okay in other circumstances. So the morality is relative to the situation. So I guess you’re a moral relativist.

    Well, let’s review a little. Back on Markstein, on the 14th, when this all began, you called Gypsy8 a moron because she thought it didn’t make a difference whether the Fort Hood attack was called terrorism or not. Your point, I believe, beyond the insult, was that there was a financial difference. (I agree that this could make a difference, but I wonder if that difference means that we should call the attack terrorism. Should we call all attacks terrorism just to make sure that the survivors get more money? Perhaps in all fairness we should call an attack terrorism if and only if it is in fact terrorism. Personally I don’t see why one cause of death should be worth more than another, but that’s not my decision, so let it go.)
    Anyway, I entered the discussion shortly afterwards with the following: “The terms “terrorism” and “terrorist” have almost lost their use except as terms of emotion. Those who think that the Fort Hood attack was terrorism, what definition are you using?”
    And you replied (with an arrow to my comment): “These are the people who refuse to call it a War on Terrorism, but a “man-made bad thingy”. Perfect Obamabots.” Of course I have never called the War on Terrorism a “man-made bad thingy”, and I am hardly an Obamabot, but you don’t seem to care about the truth when a snide little insult will do.
    Well, eventually you agreed that the attack was not terrorism, and in your most recent post you agree that the word “terrorism” isn’t useful. So far, on your standards, I guess you count as a moron and an Obamabot. I wouldn’t use those terms myself, but since you do use them, there they are. If the shoe fits….
    Of course you hadn’t offered a definition, so I asked you for a definition. Your reply was irrelevant, as I pointed out, since it gave an example rather than a definition. I won’t go through the logic here unless it becomes an issue. Suffice it to say that you did not offer a definition.
    Next you refused to give a definition. “Definitions are easy. You can look them up in a dictionary.” Easy, but evidently too hard for you. “Common sense is a little harder.” And you referred to Justice Potter’s famous line “I know it when I see it.” Now what the relevance of this was to the discussion I simply don’t know. Again, I won’t go into the logic here unless it becomes an issue. Suffice it to say that this point was completely irrelevant. You then asked me for my definition, though you had not given yours. I don’t see that my definition was at issue, since I hadn’t made the claim that the attack was terrorism. Your definition was at issue, since you did make the claim.
    At this point you further said, “(But let me save you a little time. If your reply is along the lines of “One man’s terrorist is another man’s freedom fighter”, don’t bother replying. Moral relativists rub me the wrong way.)”
    Well, I could go on, but it’s enough to say that eventually you did concede that the attack was not an example of terrorism. So your charge against me and Gypsy8 was unwarranted. Furthermore, in the most recent series of posts you have demonstrated that you are indeed a moral relativist, since you believe that in some situations it’s okay to kill noncombatants and in other situations it’s not okay.
    By the way, I did offer my definition of terrorism, and the Fort Hood attack doesn’t fit.
