99% Accurate

Unread postby lar9291 » Sat Jul 09, 2005 12:40 pm

Dear Mr. Goldberg: Read thru 100People yesterday (fastest I've ever read a book) and agree with 99% of your picks although I could probably nominate a few more. The one I disagreed with was Michael Savitch. Yes he's a screamer and frequently goes over the top but I can't see any comparison between him and say, Franken. They should never be on the same list. Nevertheless I enjoyed the book thoroughly and will recommend it to my friends. On a scale of 1 to 10, I'd give it a 9 (I never give 10's)

DAMN STRAIGHT they should never be on the same list. Franken is a smart man with good-intentions doing his best to break the monopoly that the rightie corporate hatemongering propagandists have on the mainstream media. Savage is 100% EVIL, DANGEROUS, HATE-FILLED, SCUM...period!

Maybe, maybe not. I'm not a big fan of Franken, but that's beside point.

Savage is a hatefilled scumbag, Franken is not. I'd rather have a blowhard than a scumbag ANY DAY OF THE WEEK.

From the Author ...

Hello All,

Thanks for the posts. But answer me this: Why do my friends on the Left -- and I don't say that sacrastically -- sound so angry? I know we're in the middle of a Culture War -- and frankly, I'd prefer to be a Conscientious Objector. Thanks to all for the kind words. Thanks too to those of you who disagreed and were good enough to write. Let's bring it down a little, though ... we're all in it together.

Bernie,
Thank you for giving us a list to study. Many of the people you refer to I am not very familiar with and that scares me a little. Exposing any and all extremist points of view and behavior helps our country greatly. If only half of what you write about the people listed in this book is true, they need to be exposed.

Thank you, again!
Woke up one morning on the right side.

Too bad Mike Savage would agreed with the " order "

If Savage was not a follower of " The Order " perhaps we would be in luck ,and the folks who took care of Alan Berg could take care of Savage as well.

Mr. Goldberg,
I am on the left according to the conventionall wisdom on this site and I couldn't be happier. I am frustrated by he current administartion but try to keep the discourse reasonable. It seems that everyone here is angry at one point or another. I appreciate you trying to keep things civil but please don't try to paint one side as angry when boh sides are clearly angry from time to time.
Thank you.

It's not nonsense. I know you can cite many examples of the left being angry and I can counter with many examples of the right sounding angry.
My point is it's condescending to myself and others on the left to be labeled as angry. Deal with each issue rather than the broad stereotypes.

Kob,

You know, you're the only Liberal here on this site that I ENJOY debating with. The reason being is that you don't come off as a smart ass all the time. You are very respectful but honest. I truly admire that and I should behave more like that myself. I'll be honest, I was quite surprised that you said you were on the Left. Reason being is because of the standard of Liberal behavior that has been demonstrated here by your peers on the Left.

the right very rarely starts angry, the left very often starts angry.

if the left provokes the right, is that the rights fault?

all too often, the right wants to talk about the issues, while the left wants to talk about feelings...

for instance, i hear many on the right talking about illegal immigration, an issue that needs dealt with, and all the left does is label the right bigots and talk in meaningless platitudes about "comprehensive reform" without any details, but sure to make it seem as if any against that are somehow anti-hispanic.

Scott,
I appreciate the kind words. The only other lib on the board I ever felt any kinship with is the long departed DemPlans. I felt he was a good and honorable debater. No offense to the libs who are on here now but I really don't relate to them at all for the most part. I can understand why Bernie was asking for more civility from what he has seen on the boards but in my personal experience those that I know on the left are not angry. It's purely anecdotal but there you have it. I'd rather make the debates about the issues rather than have to get messed up with the labels. Everyone on this board has some issues that go counter to the labels applied to them. I'd like to be judged for what I say not what group I'm supposed to belong to.
Be safe.
