It's a word / term used to stir up the extremist faction. Like not wearing a 'flag' lapel pin.

You know, the ones made in China by people making only pennies a day for 15+ hours of work.

"Unamerican" is the new "communist." People with no clue what it actually means just use it as a code word for anyone they disagree with.

yeah, let's see how they liked my Cosmic Clue-by-4 upside the head. I replied, basically pointing out that a 5 year old with access to C-SPAN could figure out that Fixed Lies is wrong, then I dared them to present CONCRETE evidence that people who they call "un-American" are, in fact, un-American. The only concrete they'll be able to find is what's between their ears.

I wonder what they would think if they knew Jillian is a lesbian. She used to be partners with Jackie Warner.

AFTER READING THIS THREAD I HAD TO CHECK OUT THE BL THREAD. I AM OFFERING MY COMMENT THAT I LEFT THERE AS I PERSONALLY GET TIRED OF PEOPLE WHO WON'T LET IT GO AND PERSIST UNTIL FOLKS JUST STOP ARGUING. ALL THIS DOES IN ALIENATE AND DIVIDE AND ACCOMPLISHES LITTLE OF WORTH.

YES, THIS TEAM HAS FOLKS WHO ARE VERY OPINIONATED (MYSELF INCLUDED) BUT WE DON'T ALWAYS HAVE TO EXPRESS THESE OUT LOUD OR WITH SUCH NEGATIVISM. TAKE THE HIGH ROAD LIKE OUR PRESIDENT TRIES TO DO IN ALL HIS DEALINGS.

HERE IS WHAT I SAID:

AND WHAT ABOUT THE WHOLE THREAD THAT CORPORATECAT STARTED WITH AN APPARENT EXPLETIVE AND USING THE WORDS "HATE" AND "FAT'??? THAT SET OFF A FURY OF BACK AND FORTHS AND CHANGED NO ONE'S MIND ABOUT THEIR PERSONAL RIGHTEOUSNESS.

IF YOU DON'T LIKE HOW A CONVERSATION IS GOING IN VIRTUAL LAND OR IN YOUR REAL LIFE, YOU HAVE AN OPTION TO WALK AWAY AND NOT PARTICIPATE.

I SAY WE ALL NEED TO GO BACK TO BEING COURTEOUS TO ONE ANOTHER HERE AND AT HOME IN ALL OUR INTERACTIONS WITH OTHERS.

SPARKPEOPLE IS FOR POSITIVE SUPPORT. NOT SNIPING.

How about Bob?

I also post on the BL board on IMDb. I remember when people were talking about how emotional Tara was about Blaine leaving and insinuating that she was screwing around with him. I said that I think Jillian is more her type.

I would never have said that on the SparkPeople BL board.

My life is irredeemably corrupt.

Hey Dave, been meaning to ask you fpr your thoughts about the "Republican Listening Tour." Wait last week it was introduced by Eric Cantor as that, well wait Rush Limbuagh kinda slapped them around about it, or wait Eric Cantor now says "it was never a listening tour." OK I'm confused..

Any way what do you about the wanna-be's holding get togethers for advice from constituents (or are they asking for advice, i'm confused again)or we're they just ordering a pizza last Saturday.. Someone anyone help

Welcome to our cozy little group. We are a diverse and opinionated group and I will defend your right to say it! I'm not much on trolls. I have no use for 'em and won't engage with them! I have enough people in my real life that need serious education and professional help for those clueless right wing nuts and anti-intellectuals that get spoon fed talking points from Rush, Sean Hannity, Michael Savage, et al.

Forgive quickly, Kiss SLOWLY.

The BL group are a bunch of very judgemental, opinionated people! I have to bite my tongue there all the time, I just like to discuss the show.
One guy even has Reagan for a profile pic.
Why does that show attract so many Rush and FOX fans? Like Jerry Springer does trailer park peeps?
I didn't even visit that subject before because I sensed trouble!

WOW ---
What a bunch of hateful people. I guess we know how Bush won 2 terms as "the decider". It is sad to think that there are so many people out there who don't think. Even sadder still is their willingness to swallow the crud that FAUX NOISE and RICH LIMPPIG puke up daily.
MSNBC will get a bit biased, but they always tell the truth, and admit it when they get it wrong. CNN is pretty straight forward, and has the most unbiased reporting. But they are less fun than anyone.
I wonder how many of those LOSERS were TEA BAGGERS???

PEACE

HOLY SNICKIES!!!

Alliekatmew, What a bunch of babies. Well I truly believe you'll enjoy our forum. You'll find everyone here very respectful of the other.

As for propoganda news (CNN & MSNBC) I find hard to believe in the term. Each network works their news room they way they feel fit to do so. Afterall, it seems Fox likes people who flip flop on ideals so much (Home town boy Dennis Miller), yet MSNBC seems to pick up many a former Republican congresional stalwart (Scarborough).

Good luck to you and hope you enjoy the group as much as I do.
