You, jubal, are an example of what is wrong with this web site. You and your ilk have made a mockery of the truth and enabled this forum to be used for bashing Republicans, the truth, libertarianism and anything else that does not comport to your way of thinking. You accuse others of using the tactics you employ. Gatto is a fascist and your blind hatred enables trash like him to survive. I don't come here to denigrate people, unlike many here who respond to my posts, but jubal, you are a moron.
My apologies to the other members here/
Paratus...I think calling me a moron is your visceral reaction to me assuming that he was a GOP nitwit. I stand corrected about his party affiliation, but I still do not retract what I said about him. He is MAFIOSO to employ those tactics of not being transparent to the media. The fact that he is a Democrat makes me wonder what is real game is. Just because someone carries the moniker of Democrat doesn't make them a lefty. There are many conservative or right wing "so called" Democrats.
Generally the two monikers...Republican and Democrat...are often used to denote where they are from center in US politics. R for right and D for left. However...there are those who pretend to be or use the name of the other in order to accomplish their hidden agendas.
You say that I blindly hate anything to the right...that is not true. I praise many conservative values; liberty, justice, free trade...but I also balance those with liberal values; equality, fairness, and social justice. Each of these has its counter point and its dialectic.
I am flattered that you think that I have such power to influence and control what gets done or said on Current, but I assure you that I call them like I see them. I cannot be pinned down to one party, because neither party truly represents my values. I am a progressive for change. I am conservative for the environment. I am libertarian for individual rights. I am Marxist for the working class and the poor. None of the two "sides of the coin" represent me because I refuse to bow down to the "empire of lies".
You must have me confused with other people on this site who prattle on and on in circles using bullet points they got off the Fox or MSNBC news channels. I am a critical thinker, but on this post that you have lambasted me on...I was responding from my Android on the bus on my way to the University and I didn't have time to research this guy. I was responding to the video and what I saw.
Generally I equate Mafia with Republicans...sorry if that upset you, but I do admit and acknowledge that Mafia also can equate with Democrat, too.
