    How humble – and how unsurprising.
    Although today found your posts not exactly dealing with the “actual arguments.”
    Mostly dealing with me.
    So much for your grand experiment.

    “Wow, you really don’t get it, do you?”
    -
    Well, if after all the explaining you have done, whose fault is that – the student’s or the teacher’s?

    And remember, Agrestic is now only dealing with actual arguments (her term).
    You should see what it’s like when she goes on the attack towards me!

    LALO USED THE WORD ‘SCREAMING’ – I’M COMMENTING ONTHAT.
    “And I’m commenting on your use of the same word, as well as words like “whining,” in many of your past posts. If you think it’s a problem, why contribute to it?”

    LALO WASN’T ACCURATE WHEN HE SAIDSCREAMINGAND IT’S AN INFLAMMATORY WORD, IMPLYING THAT INGRAHAM IS OUT OF CONTROL ON THE AIR. AND I’M NOT CONTRIBUTING TO IT, I’M POINTING IT OUT. AS FOR WHINING, I’M POINTING THAT OUT TOO. AND DON’T FORGETBLAMING,” ANOTHER LALO STOCK-IN-TRADE.

    “I mean, when I post on here, I’m pretty much just typing.”
    THAT ONLY MEANS YOU HAVE BEEN CONDESCENDING,SARCASTIC, AND NAME-CALLING IN A QUIET VOICE.

    “Look, you’re the one who asked whether Ingraham was literally screaming.”

    AND THAT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH YOU OR YOUR TYPING.

    -

    " And I’m saying that I, and probably Alcaraz, and maybe even you, literally aren’t even vocalizing when we write these posts or make those comic strips."

    SO LALO DOESN’T REALLY MEAN ANYTHING HE WRITES ABOUT?

    -

    Which leaves me to wonder how you get a pass but Lalo doesn’t.

    FYI, LALO IS IN A PUBLIC FORUM; HIS WORK INVITES SCRUTINY. AND BESIDES, YOU HARDLY GIVE ME A ‘PASS.’

    -

    If you think it’s condescending to try and apply logic to a situation, well, you and I have different definitions of “condescending.”

    MY DEFINITION IS WHEN YOU TELL PEOPLE THAT THEY DON’T KNOW ANYTHING; DON’T HAVE AN EDUCATION; TELL THEM WHAT THEY SHOULD OR SHOULDN’T DO; TELL THEM WHAT THEY THINK OR ARE DOING; AND FLAUNT A SUPERIOR ATTITUDE OVER THEM. IN CASE YOU DIDN’T GET IT, I’M ALSO REFERRING TO YOUR PAST POSTS.

    (re: Lalo’s attitude towards women)

    “I’m not saying we can legislate anyone’s attitude. What I am saying is that we both seem to agree that sexism is a bad thing. So how might push for a lessening of it? The legislation that would help to rectify pay disparities isn’t about attitudes, but it is about structures. So why not push for that? Same as folks have pushed for the Civil Rights Act, for the abolition of slavery, for the legalization of same-sex marriage, for women’s right to vote, etc.?”

    ALL OF THOSE EXAMPLES WERE LEGISLATED, AND HAVE LAWS IN PLACE. BUT IT TAKES DECADES FOR THE SOCIAL ADJUSTMENTS TO FALL INTO PLACE. I’M NOT IN FAVOR OF LETTING LALO RUN OFF WITH MISOGYNY FOR FORTY YEARS UNTIL HE LEARNS HIS LESSON.

    So I didn’t actually say anything about tone, it is your invention that I did.

  6. indiethink commented on La Cucaracha about 12 hours ago

    “@cdward is correct; there are plenty of folks on the right wing calling Obama Obola, so Lalo is unfortunately already pretty close to the truth.”
    LEFT WING LALO USES A DEROGATORY DRAWING OF LIMBAUGHTHAT SEEMS THE EQUIVALENT ON THE OTHER SIDE.
    -
    “..the vast majority of folks recognize [THE STRIP] as humor…”
    WHAT IS THE SOURCE FOR THIS FACT?
    -
    “As far as objecting to “screaming,” does this mean you won’t be characterizing folks on here as screaming, or whining, or any of those other words you’ve used to characterize what posters (or cartoonists) do?”
    LALO USED THE WORDSCREAMING’ – I’M COMMENTING ON THAT.
    -
    “I mean, when I post on here, I’m pretty much just typing.”
    THAT ONLY MEANS YOU HAVE BEEN CONDESCENDING, SARCASTIC, AND NAME-CALLING IN A QUIET VOICE.

    “Maybe we should push Lalo to address unequal pay for women and the legislation that would help mitigate it?”
    LALO’S ATTITUDE TOWARDS WOMEN (IN PARTICULAR, LATINA WOMEN) CAN’T BE SOLVED BY LEGISLATINGTHAT IS A REPUBLICAN TACTIC.

    The far right certainly is extreme.
    But let’s be balanced and give credit to Lalo for being on the far left and just as extreme.
    “Screaming?”
    Ingraham actually screamed?
    And exactly how does Lalo figure Obama and Ebola may be the same thing?
    Because they both are words that end in “a”?
    Ah, hyperbole, you say…
    Humor, you say…
    If that’s the case, then might Lalo Alcaraz and Jennifer Lopez (whom he skewered yesterday with a misogyny jab) be the same because they both end in “z”?
    That makes as much sense (more actually, because they are both humans).
    -
    How is his attack (making up disjointed juxtapositions) on Fox news any better than what he is accusing them of doing?
    As pointed out, the Fox people regularly sit in front of the cameras, and similarly, Lalo does the same with his strip.
    Two sides of the same coin.

    A careful examination would reveal that
    @Lorenzo Browncoat and I were not referring to the woman in the background.
    Lalo shows a poster that is lettered “JLo Latino mobile phones” and has exaggerated some anatomy.

    “So you’re saying that you actually are continuing to be aggressive and nasty in your comments?”
    -
    Where did I say that?
    Well, I thought it couldn’t be less complicated, but once again, Agrestic has proven me wrong.
    If she is going to stick to actual arguments here, she’d best practice more.

    “By the way, I wonder if some of our current communication problem might be down to the fact this is a text-only medium”
    -
    There is no communication problem.
    I comment on Lalo’s strip.
    Agrestic comments on me. And comments. And comments.
    What could be less complicated?

    “With so much pent up aggression have you thought about anger management? Better for your body than that constant adrenalin flow which can be injurious over long periods.”
