GT: Ginsberg (RIP) certainly knew how to stir things up and a lot of people admire him for a number of reasons. As for myself, his association, support, and membership with NAMBLA is what bothered me. I take it that you are okay that he was a card-carrying member of NAMBLA and that does not bother you and others, but for me.....er, uhhhh....just a little to "icky" for me ad no bueno. To be fair though, late in his life he stted that he was wrong to be associated with NAMBLA for all of those years, and flatly denied that he was a "chickenhawk" (gay male with an insatiable desire for under-age boys).

"Russian collusion hoax"

ALWAYS LYING: https://www.factcheck.org/2020/10/partisan-claims-of-russia-hoax-revived-ahead-of-2020-election/

"The amount of misinformation and propaganda you continually post is astounding. Do you think if you keep repeating it over and over it will be true?"

Classic projection. VOLies has been falsely claiming that Russian collusion was a "hoax" ever since he showed up here, and regularly asserts such absurdities as "These days the hate it only coming from one side, the other half learned how to live and let live" -- yeah, Robert Crimo III has learned to live and let live. The folks at Jan 6 and at Trump rallies wearing T-shirts saying “Death to Liberals”, “RWDS” (“Right Wing Death Squad”), “Rope. Tree. Journalist. Some assembly required”, and all sorts of vile antisemitic and racist messages have learned to live and let live. Tucker Carlson, whose show has been characterized by researchers as the most racist TV show in history, has learned to live and let live. The people--including GOP members of Congress--who hounded the woman at the head of Homeland Security's board to develop best practices to fight disinformation out of her job with doxxing, vile threats against her and her family, the most horrendous misogynist attacks imaginable--these people have learned to live and let live. All those Proud Boys and Oath Keepers and survivalists practicing in the woods, waiting for the day when they are told it's ok to start killing the libs--they have learned to live and let live.

We oppose the right wing not because we are hateful people, but because they are.

I don't think it's gullibility ... rather moral corruption, a lack of scruples, a deep fundamental dishonesty, so he cherry picks madly and declares an objective fact check "partisan" without even reading it and refuting none of it (especially the GOP Senate's own report that found collusion), while absurdly referring to Durham who was hand-picked by Bill Barr for partisan purposes but still came up empty, and refers to Mueller whose report he's never set eyes on and knows nothing about other than Barr's misrepresentation of its findings that even the very cautious regulation-bound Mueller was compelled to call out. It's not gullibility, it's transparently dishonest despicable deplorable behavior and the only people who side with him are the same. He lies by rote, which is why I don't engage in extensive back-and-forths with him like some silly people here; I occasionally point out his more egregious lies and then move on. Of course he will continue to tell the lie--directly channeling Trump--that there was a "Russian collusion hoax" ... it's what fundamentally bad people do.

Can't even enjoy a 4th of July parade without a right wing shooter. "While Mr. Crimo's social media is relatively blank, he has "liked" a few tweets that indicate he may have political leanings to the right." Of course he leaned to "the right".

I hate the constant arguments and anti-social commentary we’re seeing here. I like that we all can debate points but most of these cartoons are just provoking unproductive me vs. you hateful computer “dialogue” of you know what I mean. I think it’s intended to be polarizing.

sacjon Jul 05, 2022 03:04 PM
July 4th Cartoon

BASIC - I get it, but this is something that SHOULD be argued about and commented on. The Supreme Court of our country (the one we all refer to as "land of the free" and the "greatest nation on earth" etc etc) has just allowed the States to completely ban and outlaw womens' right to choose what happens with their own body. This SHOULD cause outrage. We can't just hide our heads in the sand and pretend it's hunky dory, especially if you're a woman in TX, OK, SD, LA, KY or LGBQT in any of those states plus Florida. Not all Americans are "free" anymore. It's time to stand and demand action.

Voice of Reason Jul 06, 2022 03:37 PM
July 4th Cartoon

For example, this is a lie: “ allowed the States to completely ban and outlaw womens' right to choose what happens with their own body.” the States don’t get to decide anything, the people decide by voting for legislators they support, who draft and vote on legislation for the State. Just like SCOTUS didn’t ban abortion, but put it back on legislators (who are elected by the people) at both the state and federal level, to do their job and actually pass abortion rights legislation the people want. Why is that such a difficult concept to understand?

sacjon Jul 06, 2022 06:54 PM
July 4th Cartoon

If the majority in your state vote to elect someone who takes away their right to choose, then those who didn't vote for that person had NO CHOICE in the matter. Simple, brainless, easy logic. Why is that such a difficult concept to understand?

And sacjon to answer your question, it’s NEITHER - you’re way off. I’m pro choice and pro free speech.

BASIC - What am I "off" on? I never said you were either, just wondering why you wanted to stop these cartoons. That's great that you are those things you say. I'm glad you support women's right to choose what to do with their own bodies!

BASIC - It was not a "statement," it was a question asking whether you were anti-choice or anti-speech. Maybe it came off testy, but I honestly wanted to know why you would suggest ending these cartoons and the social commentary they provide. Again, glad to hear you are pro-choice and pro-speech.

VOICE - Oh I never said there's no hate coming from my side, never said that once, not at all, never. BUT.... YOU said there is absolutely ZERO hate on your side. That is what I've called you a liar (once again) for saying. You know it, we all know it.

VOICE - haha nice try, but adding that changes nothing. My whole argument is that you lied and said you ONLY see hate from the left here.

The whole point of my DIRECT QUOTES of you is to show you how many times you said there is "ONLY" hate from the left here and "NEVER" from the conservative posters.

Keep trying to downplay it, but you LIED, not twice, but THRICE!

Here are the "full sentences" you keep whining about. Now, tell us how these aren't INTENTIONALLY FALSE STATEMENTS.

"In reading comments on EdHat I only see hate coming from one side."

"These days the hate it only coming from one side, the other half learned how to live and let live."

"While the extremes on the right certainly have their hate, hate and intolerance has taken over the left.it’s even evident on EdHat, the lefty commentators who constantly spew hate, condescension and insults here but it’s never reciprocated but the more conservative posters."

There you go. You're entire comments. We're all waiting to see how you explain these are true and NOT intentionally false statements.

It's really your last chance to redeem yourself. You've been proven to be lying over and over again, yet you say I don't understand the word. Explain it or accept that you've be outed.

Once again your lack of understanding has led you astray. You seem to think hating on fascists, zealots, liars and and a holes is a bad thing... It is not. Good people hate those things.

The feelings that you one is a victim are a result of their misguided understanding of life, people, as well as a general lack of empathy and social intelligence. Mix this with a lower than average IQ and you get: A whiney, self-created victim, who is desperate for validation and attention. (persecution fetish). Sound familiar? It is very familiar for those of us who have read your posts.

We are truly sorry your mom didn't hug you enough but at this age, you should take some personal responsibility and solve these deep psychological issues yourself. Go ahead and pick yourself up by the bootstraps and do the work. Pay the experts, learn from your mistake, have some courage and be a man.

Please look at the map at this link and tell me more about those first world nations?
The map is for the Center for Reproductive rights
https://www.usnews.com/news/best-countries/articles/2022-05-09/how-u-s-abortion-laws-compare-to-other-countries

Canada On request but regulation varies by territory
USA No Federal Ban, States vary from 0-9 months pending legislation
Mexico Varies by State
China Varies by region

Look at their gestational limits. Most first world countries put some restrictions on abortion 12-18 weeks after gestation
Mississippi had restrictions after 15 months. CA currently is at 24 months which is less restrictive than any countries other than Japan, Great Britain, Finland, India which have no limits at all which is similar to VT, CO and Alaska

sacjon was the one talking about first world countries, abortion and gestational liimits.
I was just pointing out that she had gestational limits all twisted around. Almost all developed countries have some limits on abortions past 12-18 weeks after gestation with the exception of those I noted.
I'm not sure why people can't celebrate that our freedom... even for abortion, exceeds that of most developed first world nations. I even included a link to a map from the Center of Reproductive Rights... hardly a right wing enterprise.
Left wing people here say some ignorant crap and then mock the facts from intelligent sources from their own side.

EDNEY - and further, to counter your "point," the article you posted was written before the overturn so the USA's status is not correct. In fact, look at the actual headline of the article.... "The U.S. Is Poised to Be a Global Outlier on Abortion"

Further, the map you keep boasting about on this source from our "own side" is outdated. Take a look at it now: https://reproductiverights.org/maps/worlds-abortion-laws/?category[1352]=1352

America is now "PA" - "Prohibited Altogether." No other "First World" country shares that status.

So, your self congratulation and excitement that you "got me" or whatever you're boasting about, is WRONG and based on MISINFORMATION. Nice try though!

Mock me about gestational limits?
https://www.usnews.com/news/best-countries/articles/2022-05-09/how-u-s-abortion-laws-compare-to-other-countries
Click on the blue countries. Center for Reproductive Rights defines Abortion rights by gestational period.
Generally speaking, if you are pro abortion rights, you want the gestation week limit to be higher, not lower. ie: 12 week and the government has questions is 2X more restrictive than 24 weeks and the government has questions.
The courts in the US have held that 12 weeks is not enough time for some women to figure out they are pregnant and the Supreme Court did not change that so I expect most US states to legislate abortion rights into a range similar to the rest of the first world as outlined in the linked map

ENDEY - we're ALL mocking you now for saying "USA No Federal Ban" and "our freedom... even for abortion, exceeds that of most developed first world nations."

"I even included a link to a map from the Center of Reproductive Rights... hardly a right wing enterprise." - No, you didn't. You included a link to the outdated article with a pre-overturn map.

Here's the link to the actual map: https://reproductiverights.org/maps/worlds-abortion-laws/
