This Week In Crazy: Beyoncé Is ‘Mental Poison’

Former Arkansas governor and likely 2016 presidential candidate Mike Huckabee has a strange obsession with Beyoncé Knowles, whom he has repeatedly criticized, and even compared to a prostitute. Thanks to the trolls running the latest Des Moines Register/Bloomberg Politics poll in Iowa, we now know that he’s not alone.

Tucked in between serious questions about the 2016 Iowa caucus, the pollsters asked a leading question on Queen Bey. And the results were glorious.

Beyonce poll

In other words: By a 40 to 38 percent margin, likely Republican caucus-goers agree that Beyoncé is “mental poison.”

Suddenly, those electoral victories by Huckabee, Rick Santorum, and Joni Ernst make a bit more sense.

With Huckabee nearly certain to jump into the 2016 race, he may end up having to moderate his crazier views to appeal to a broader electorate. But fear not, Iowans: There are still plenty of other right-wing luminaries who spend a surprising amount of time worrying about whether Beyoncé is a demon.

    Beyonce is mental poison? Should we assume that Mike has a boring life at home, or is the mental anguish caused by the fact that Beyonce does not wear oversize Japanese glasses and never used paper wraps to cover her shoes? Certainly, it couldn’t be anything else, right?

        Mental anguish may have been a more appropriate expression, at least from a male chauvinist pig perspective…

    Iowa Republicans: The only “mental poisons´ is that of the people who follow and agree with Huckabee on the matter of Beyoncé Knowles,

    Ben Carson: Yes doc, all those immigrants who are being paid such high wages can afford to take their kids to Disneyland so they could spread the measles to the unsuspecting public.
    .
    Del Marsh: What Alabama can’t afford are any more narrow minded homophobic yahoos like Marsh.

    James David Manning: Are Manning and Alex Jones brothers from another mother? Wow what type of minds come up with these theories,
    oh I know one with limited living brain cells.

    Benjamin Cole: At least Rep. Aaron Schock’s had the good sense to ask for his resignation, however how did this openly racist individual get hired as Schock’s “senior advisor for policy and communications” in the first place.

      Suspicions become reality when far right wackos like “Reverend” Robertson say things such as the heathens in Haiti deserved what they got. I wish I knew what deity he reveres so that I could stay as far away from it as possible. No need for speculation, the God that influences their mindset, rhetoric, and action is the Almighty $$$

      With the democratic loss of the entire legislative branch, and the urgent calls to change that, it seems the acts of desperation aren’t in the republican camp. Don’t worry, Huckabee is not a serious contender. Suggest you find a candidate to back and support her/him. Lashing out at republicans only energizes that base to oppose you.

            BS Vila. First of all, we aren’t adequately ‘dealing’ with the fire ‘we’ now have. Take a look at the 2008 speech in Cairo that ignited the Arab Spring of discontent now spreading murderous intent across the middle east. They aren’t chanting “Death to Bush!”. Wake up.

          2. Dominick Vila February 7, 2015

            The Arab Spring had as much to do with a 2008 speech in Cairo, as Reagan’s “Mr. Gorbachev, please tear down this wall” had to do with the collapse of the Soviet Union.
            The people in countries such as Algiers, Libya, and Egypt tried to transition to freedom and democracy, had no idea what freedom and democracy means, and failed.
            They are not chanting death to Bush because, as incredible as it may seem, people around the world rise and pursue their political and socio-economic goals because they want to, not because a U.S. President told them to do so.
            As for the opinion that people around the world have about George W. Bush’s policies and actions, suffice it to say that there were calls for his arrest and trial when he planned to attend a charity event in Switzerland, and that he has refrained from traveling overseas to avoid a major diplomatic crisis.

            They aren’t chanting Death to Bush because the current threats make his standing in the present world view irrelevant. With a US State Dept that can’t even be honest to its own citizenry, and a president that refuses to drop his ego long enough to behave when a foreign leader visits, we have larger issues to deal with. Good to see you regain control of your account again Mr Vila.

            Compared to the days of Idi Amin, Pol Pot, and even the not too distant quagmire in Iraq and Afghanistan, the world has much to sheer for. ISIL did not become a reality because of anything President Obama did, and neither is the Civil War in Syria or the Arab Spring. What President Obama is responsible for is keeping our country safe, not over reacting to world events, and trying to pursue peaceful solutions in parts of the world consumed by brutality and intolerance. The latter may be naive, but preferable to what his predecessor did.

        News flash: until secular political thinkers gave us our First Amendment, Christian governments did their share of beheading and burning alive. And lynchings of black people in the Jim Crow South included not only hangings but burning alive, with community involvement (open buffet to stab, shoot, burn with a cigarette, chop off, etc. the body part of your choice) in torture before the burning, and sometimes hanging after the victim was barely still alive, or burning after hanging. Basically, any evil you could imagine. And our ancestors did this tens of thousands of times before the civil rights laws stopped it. People brought their children to watch and join in, the details were published in newspapers, some crowds included hundreds of people, and no one was prosecuted or even arrested. The Islamic fundamentalists are simply still able to get away with it while ours are forced to obey laws which protect EVERYONE (or at least try to).

          Those who yammer that this country was founded on Christianity: Very few people came here for religious purposes and then, they hung 29 of their own for being witches. Life Magazine did a follow-up on the murder trial of Emmett Till. With all the irrefutable evidence, the crackers turned the murderers loose. Life filmed them in the Baptist Church on Sunday and one of them passed the plate. Life also did a spread on a lynching. The entire community was there – laughing. Probably all good Baptists who thought they were saved.

      Maybe James Madison was right when he said, “During the almost fifteen centuries has the legal establishment of Christianity been on trial. What has been its fruits? More or less in all places pride or indolence in the clergy; ignorance and servility in the laity; in fact, superstition, bigotry and persecution.” — speaking to the General Assembly of the Commonwealth of Virginia (1785).

    People…wake up. It’s a GOP invented culture war. The GOP bulls are smart enough to know that resurrecting the Pre-Civil War glory days of plantations, mint juleps in the cool evening on verandas and Robert E. Lee is all they have to wave in front of these southern and midwestern red staters.

    A culture like theirs lives so far in the past, advancements and progress are always their enemy. Isn’t that why they hold onto fossil fuel jobs they know are killing the air, water and soil and people in their own states?

    If they want to go after Beyonce, maybe we Yankees need to go after Hayden What’s her face and that cutesy butt jiggling, blonde curls and cowgirl boots are part of her song repetoire “Cotton is the fabric of our lives.” No…wrong…Cotton plantations are the fabric of THEIR lives.

    This is how culturally retarded these people are. The bulk of every US budget is paid for by those of us up north where our hi-tech industries and clean energy initiatives are pulling so far ahead of the antebellum industries of these people. Meanwhile, WE have to hand their Big Oil industries $15 billion this year? We have to hand over $22 billion for the midwestern agri-industries “liability insurance?”

    Fair is fair. They want to live like their great great Mutton Chops grandpappies did. We are not their sharecroppers. The sooner they get this the less of our hard earned tax dollars will end up in their states.

    Huckabee wishes he were Thomas Jefferson and Beyoncé were Sally Hemming and it was antebellum America. Jay-Z watch out. He may be mad enough with lust to send out catchers. Why the fixation on someone who bothers no one. She does her thing. Married her man and THEN had her child and still does her thing. typical right wingers. As Chris Rock said, there is nothing a white person with a nickel hates more than a black person with a quarter and in her case, along with her husband, she can buy and sell him and the republican party over and over again.

The GOP worships power. They have a strong, traditional family. The GOP is obsessed with traditional families. They are job creators. That’s the conservative holy grail.

    … it’s very questionable conservatives’ contention of Beyonce being ‘mental poison’ as conservatives seem only to like the stupid, quiet, invisible type (of Women). But I would dare say the fact that conservatives are just plain MENTAL – is more precisely accurate, as they have no cultural awareness, sensitivities or tolerances AT ALL. Nothing new here & we’d all be good to expand our own intelligence & political understandings so we can 1) – get rid of all conservatives (Republicans & Democrats) in Congress & the White House & 2) – make sure our votes go towards the best interests of the Middle Class & working poor, since we don’t have a billion dollar lobbying initiative to get THAT PAC activated on OUR behalf… What say ye, voters of America? 2016 is only 10 months away after all…

Those kind of people seem to prefer fascism over democracy. Do you even know the difference is between those two? Fascism is a form of government that loves to strip its citizens of their rights.

    How did the republican party become so enraptured of the party line of the original Nazi party? Maybe it is “mental poison” that has made so many of this party to have such disdain for the majority of the electorate. Hitler won because of the horrible state that Germany was in at the time. Now our version of the Nazi party is trying to win because of the massive amount of ignorance that has become a form of “mental poison” in our country. Our economy is strong but the fans of Adolph Hitler refuse to allow any facts to get in their way of attempting a rise of a Fourth Reich in this country. Then there is someone like Rick Santorum who admires the thinking of the Mullah’s of Iran. Fascism or religious fundamentalism are two things that should not exist in America and yet they appeal to a very large minority of our people. I realize that I will be forced to stand up, raise my right hand, click my heals and say “Seig Heil” whenever the GOP candidate is on the air late October of 2016. Will God answer my prayers again and allow me to keep my faith in him and America or does he want us to pay for making such a horrible decision that would allow a repeat of 1932 Germany to occur. We are supposed to learn from our mistakes. Wisconsin did not in electing the worst governor of its history a 2nd time. That old and very true statement that evil will triumph only when good people do nothing is very true. If good people do not vote for the democrat presidential candidate then that statement will be self full filling.

      So, you feel that if a Democrat is not elected in 2016, the US will be triumphed by evil, like Nazi Germany? How can you be so sure that isn’t already happening with the forced healthcare, the redistribution of wealth, the antagonism of Christians, and the demonization and murders of political/social dissidents? The things we are all personally concerned about now are the same things were concerned about 6 years ago. Only worse.

        Angesinca! You are reminding me of the scarecrow in the wizard of oz. You don’t seem to have a brain either. All of our allies haven national healthcare. The rich grow richer while the middle class gets poorer. There is only antagonism to religious fanatics who love to strip people of their rights (to privacy or voting). There is no killing of social dissidents by any administration now or previously. I fear the Nazi’s now just as I did in 2012. It is getting worse. Are you a sexist, racist, bigot or homophobe like the GOP leaders are? If you love to trample peoples rights, like the GOP does, then you must be a fan of fascism instead of democracy as are many ignorant people are. Try to sound a little intelligent with any subsequent posts so that I can’t respond by denigrating your intelligence (or lack thereof).

It does seem that I have wasted my time with you. I volunteer my time to help the elderly. You are the one who has learned nothing and achieved less. If you can’t see that the GOP supports fascism then talking with you is probably a mindless waste of time. Democrats threaten no ones rights. Republicans try to strip over half of our citizens of their right to privacy, the right to vote and for gays, the right to marry. Much of this is right out of fascism 101. Are you really to ignorant to see how terrible the GOP is? I believe I already have the answer to that question. You are definitely no angel unlike myself who is very close to being similar to one. I suspect that you are to ignorant to even know what fascism is and why that description is so fitting for the policies of the current members of the GOP.

    I don’t listen to Beyonce’s music so I have no opinion on Huckabee’s comment about her music. So, I looked at the context of his mental poison remark. He was referring to the appropriateness of her music when listened to by teen girls, especially the first family’s girls. It’s none of HIS business, actually.

    And then, I took a look at the lyrics in one of her songs.

    Here is Part 2, Verse 1 of the first song I found, ‘Partition’:

    Driver roll up the partition please
    Driver roll up the partition please
    I don’t need you seeing ‘Yonce on her knees
    Took 45 minutes to get all dressed up
    We ain’t even gonna make it to this club
    Now my mascara running, red lipstick smudged
    Oh he so horny, yeah he want to f**k
    He popped all my buttons, he ripped my blouse
    He Monica Lewinski-ed all on my gown

    Not sure how anyone can read this as being appropriate for underage teens. Unless a vulgar world is good for our kids. I don’t believe it is.

          It’s not just an opinion. He never stops any more. People are just reacting to Huckabee’s obsession with her.

          I left you a reply with the words to one of Ted Nugent’s songs but the National Memo refused to post it even though I altered the salty words slightly. The point is that I have no idea how Huckabee gets off doing this when he and Fox News both seem to be so fond of Ted Nugent. He’s on that network a lot and has been on Huckabee’s show more than once, with Huckabee playing base with him on Cat Scratch Fever. That song is not about bacteria. Check out the words and also the words to some of his other songs. After that, take a look at the incredibly abusive language he has used publicly in the past towards others he disagrees with. I’m not allowed to show you.

          He once arranged to be the legal guardian of an under age girl, after starting a relationship with her, so he could have sex with her…and he’s written at least two songs (that I know of) about having sex with very young under age girls.

          He’s also been charged with numerous offences concerning illegal wildlife slaughter.

          This is Huckabee’s best bud because he votes Republican and agrees with Huckabee on guns. I don’t care about any of this or Nugent personally, but Huckabee is supposed to. I only bring this up to show the amazing hypocrisy.

            Sorry, I don’t care much for Nugent. More sorry to see the implication that conservatives would relate to him due to alleged pedophilia. Is there no one you people don’t attempt to drag through the mud to make yourselves appear cleaner? The word hypocrisy echoes.

            You’re very good at twisting other people’s words and thoughts into a pretzel to have them saying something that they’re clearly not. I know this is just a game to you but I’ll play along.

            Obviously conservatives don’t relate to Nugent due to pedophilia and I never said that. I’m sure they’re as turned off on the idea as anybody else, generally speaking. They’re just willing to overlook song lyrics about it, and a sordid ugly past, so long as Nugent shares their other values.

            Fair enough, but you can’t bellyache about Beyonce’s lyrics and embrace Ted Nugent at the same time. Again, that’s the point and I know you understood that the first time. You have a point about very young girls listening to lyrics like that from Beyonce, but you don’t immediately see the irony in who’s saying it? Mike Huckabee has no credibility to even be talking about it.

            By the way, if you “don’t care much for Nugent”—why so concerned with a little comparative mud dragging?

            Sorry, no intent to twist words. You imply that I (and other conservatives, I expect) ’embrace’ the lyrics of Nugent. I don’t see any proof of that, other than your opinion. I don’t care much for vulgarity. No need to make it personal about about some singer I don’t even listen to.

            The article’s mockery of Huckabee for his opinion of the vulgar Beyonce lyrics has been jived into a personal attack by the governor toward the singer. You and other liberals anxious to bash conservatives such as Huckabee easily fell into the incitement intended by this article.

            I’m not concerned by a comparison of musicians. But, the mud dragging is plain unkind and mean spirited. The expectation that a conservative should accept Beyonce’s vulgarity because the conservative Nugent does the same is a somewhat bigoted assumption. Yours is not a very convincing argument to change one’s mind about the effects of vulgarity on teens. Thanks

            – They embrace Ted Nugent and overlook his lyrics and his past. That’s what I said. I didn’t say anything about them embracing his lyrics. I think he’s been on almost every talk show on Fox News and does the conservative radio talk show circuit.

            – It’s obviously a personal attack on Beyonce, but her audience can be very young and calling out those lyrics is ok depending on who’s doing it. It can’t be Huckabee. I said you had a point.

            – So Huckabee is “plain unkind and mean spirited?” I wouldn’t go that far. Huckabee is just shamelessly pandering to a certain base because he wants to position himself, solidify his brand and get off to a flying start in Iowa next January. He doesn’t really care about this.

            – I also never said that conservatives should accept Beyonce’s vulgarity because of Ted Nugent’s vulgarity. For the third time, you were right to highlight her lyrics. I’m just asking for some perspective and a sense of irony. As questionable as her lyrics are, so were Nugent’s, and at least she hasn’t said any of the gawdawful things publicly that Nugent has a long history of.

            For the record, I really couldn’t care less about sexualized song lyrics but that’s just me. I know others feel differently. I would care about animal abuse lyrics or something along those lines.

            The real issue could have been about lyrics and their effect on teen girls, but it’s not—because of who said it, how it was said, and why.

            This article is nothing more than a genial skewering and mocking of a man running for President, who’s trying to score points with his evangelical conservative base in a primary year through continual insults towards a black singer who he’s trying to caricature as a valueless elite Hollywood liberal. All the while, this same man has a history of advocating for a different singer who’s a crude, nasty, obscene, filthy, offensive pedophile wannabe.

            Do you understand now why Huckabee has become really annoying on this issue? Not to mention his divisive good Bubba states vs bad Bubble states rhetoric which is all part of his shtick now.

            “liberal bloodlust” and “personal edge”? Are you kidding me man? Mike Huckabee calls Beyonce mental poison and a pros***ute and he’s got the American Family Association calling her a demon.

            Whenever your inability to see various sides of an issue is on display, and your detachment and disengagement from rational and coherent thought processes is exposed, it’s always unpleasant. I understand angelsinca.

            Ah, the master of misrepresentation is in da house. Whenever replying to you, you always have to start out explaining what you didn’t say.

            The Huckster would have been squealing about her lyrics right now regardless of race because it’s useful to him at the moment to set up some liberal looking straw men to be seen fighting heroically against. You’ll notice that he hasn’t mentioned her in several years, that I’m aware of, as he chose not to run in 2012. The exception to this being that if she were a known Republican instead of a stated Obama Democrat, he wouldn’t say a word about these lyrics.

            That she’s black is just a little icing on the cake and an added feature for Huckabee’s street cred. Let’s face it, African-Americans vote about 95% Democrat and don’t exactly have favoured nation status with the Tea party and Christian conservatives, although they at least pretend to like the precious few black public figures within their own party.

            Remember Santorum saying in 2012 that he didn’t want to “give money to bla….. people.” You know, the blah people. He caught himself but too late. Recall the Obama tribal witch doctor signs with the bone through his nose (realistically done by the way) during the health care debates and occasionally since? I’ve also noted the posts made by Republicans here at the National Memo over the last 3 years concerning African-Americans. They’ve been, shall we say, revealing.

            Incidentally, I read one of your posts to someone else that came through via e-mail, where you said that you “surely never hope to be taken too seriously around here.” Just trust me on this. You don’t need to worry about that.

On February 12th at 12:13 am, you posted something in reply to rustacus21 where you said in that post, “I surely never hope to be taken too seriously around here.”

            You don’t even want to be taken seriously and that’s in your own words. Nobody makes these kinds of constant leaps of illogic and misinterpretations of meanings unless it’s wilful. Debating you is like the old Monty Python argument sketch. Look it up. This is just a game to you and it shows.

            That all being said, this type of juvenile back and forth is unappetizing and something that I rarely do. I regret starting this. Recent back and forths with right wingers mike and Gary Miles on Social Security financing and campaign finance reform involved a certain amount of give and take and were good. I took a little bit away from both of them. It’s pretty tough to take anything away from this.

            There’s something else I regret. If you look at the comment section of any website like this one, the posts always dissolve into “you’re an idiot”, “you’re a moron”, “brainless people like you”, etc.. They always do. It just gets exhausting and the insults quickly lose all meaning anyway. That’s another thing that I’ve tried to avoid here but I started to slip into it with you a little on 1 or 2 replies.

            Don’t you understand that when you click on post, it’s not reversible? You just can’t go back later and edit out half of what you posted from all existence. Your original reply came through into a lot of inboxes including mine. It was filled with words and phrases like “where is the lie, cuckoo”, “wackos”, and other taunts and invectives. Then you had the audacity to complain about personal insults. When you finally sobered up or came down from your high and realized the brutal contradiction of your post, the prince of piety decided to eliminate half of it. A little late for that buckaroo.

            “Where is the lie, cuckoo.” Sure, one more time. Why not? For reasons known only to you, you made the following remarks to rustacus21 on Feb 12th at 12:13 am: “I surely never hope to be taken too seriously around here.” When called on it, you actually tried to explain it away with this preposterous fabrication, “that last paragraph is a repeat (repeat?), or maybe just stolen.”

            I would give some serious consideration to changing your posting name at this juncture if you want to continue here with any credibility at all. We’ll still know it’s you because you’ll pretend to misunderstand other’s posts and alter their meaning. You can always lie about it though. That’s something you don’t appear to have a problem doing. You’re not very good at it but at least you’re shameless. I’ll give you that.

Not sure if it was the same user or it it’s just another often-repeated talking point. Continue your BS attack on someone else, please.

            BTW: everyone deserves a chance to edit out what they believe to be inappropriate without being hit over the head with the disposed wording. So, If sifting through garbage is all you got, help yourself to the deleted portions, I discarded them as trash.

            Yes, but editing out half the post? The part that was in complete contravention to the other half. What state of mind were you in when you posted that little gem? Oh your deleted portions that appeared in my inbox were trashy alright, but I’m guessing that you thought they were very appropriate and rational at the time…until hours later.

            You see you’re still having issues with the irreversibility concept of clicking on Post. The first sentence of your reply that appeared in my e-mail read as follows: “Why do you think it edited out then…duh.”

            So your posts can edit themselves can they? To make that sentence sensible, you’d have to insert a key word or rearrange some other words. That’s a considerable mistake. Normally that wouldn’t be that big a deal. However, the problem here is that when you make the decision to go with a pejorative like “duh” when referring to someone, it’s sort of essential that the rest of the sentence be correct or at least not have noticeable errors, let alone one that sizable.

            If you screw the rest of it up, then the whole thing blows up on you and you end up looking kind of buffoonish. I think that’s some kind of an internet rule. A language rule for sure. Even though you surely never hope to be taken too seriously around here, still.

            Since you have to dive through the dumpster to create your trashy talking points, the buffonery is all yours duh-graham. Get a life that doesn’t involve ripping apart someone else’s. That’s how the decent world works, volunteer boy.

            “Ripping apart someone else’s?” Put a lid on the melodrama and the martyr act. The posting name angelstink may be in shreds but no one has any idea who you are in your private life. The only way your life would be ripped apart by this is if your entire “life” revolved around your anonymous internet posting persona. Apparently it must.

            Stop with the begging for alms. It’s unbecoming and you’ve disgraced yourself enough here. You dish it out more than most, you amazing hypocrite, and here’s a small sampler of your remarks to others on this story alone:
            – “The only thing you have below you is your shadow so pi*s on it.” (my alteration)
            – “Just sit back and rotate on it for a while.”
            – “What planet are you on really?” (to Dominick)
            – “Maybe it’s the delay of radio signals that makes you so utterly unaware.” (to Dominick)
            – “Wake up anytime.”
            – “Whatever makes you feel more sane these days.”
            – “Dude you make less sense with every post.”
            – “Your shadow is screaming for attention. If you make enough comments, something useful may fall out.”

            There were plenty of others because that, and game playing, is your modus operandi. Then there was this ironic little gem, “Sorry, but I’m not part of your world. Enjoy shredding yours, Sluggo.”

            Now angelstink is crying that the mean guy here is ripping apart his world—-or should that be shredding. The big baby wants to be the internet ISIS but you’re not cut out for it. You’re immature and frankly, incompetent. Get a different account. You’re done.

            Snug your seat belt. I’m not going anywhere at your insistence. I won’t bow to your bullying and certainly won’t cater to your ridiculous obsession to discredit. I will leave you with your own words to ponder. Maybe the pause will help avoid further regret:

            There’s something else I regret. If you look at the comment section of any website like this one, the posts always dissolve into “you’re an idiot”, “you’re a moron”, “brainless people like you”, etc.. They always do. It just gets exhausting and the insults quickly lose all meaning anyway. That’s another thing that I’ve tried to avoid here but I started to slip into it with you a little on a few replies. For that, I’m sorry and I apologize.</i?"

            Apology accepted.

            Snug your seat belt? Oooh. Are you going to mercilessly pummel us with hard hitting words like cuckoo, and this time not delete them hours later? No. Dear god, no.

            Too bad you didn’t accept that apology at the time and offer the slightest bit of contrition in return. That would have ended this.

            I meant every single word of it. Not really because you deserved it but more along the lines of it being out of character for me, and I was feeling less and less comfortable with this childish back and forth diatribe. Unfortunately you gave me a snarky insulting reply to that little act of charity so I lost that momentary sense of altruism. That’s a shame because I was always in a position to continue. You never were.

            There, now you see how easy that was angelstink? Most people have no problem at all giving their rationale for saying something when presented with their own words. The reason is because most people have a basic level of character, integrity, and honesty. Most people do not make up some ridiculous lie when confronted with their own quotes. Lies like—“that sounds like a repeat or maybe just stolen”. Sound familiar? Then when forced to face the illogic of the statement, you tried the fog of confusion with some bafflegab about it being repeated from months earlier. Some utter nonsense like that.

            No, I never insisted that you go anywhere but this is all just par for the course now. I merely suggested that if you ever change your mind about surely never hoping to be taken too seriously around here, you might want to think about changing your posting name because you have no credibility left at this point. ‘Get a different account’ is clearly not insisting that you go anywhere. They mean two different things altogether. Purposely portraying a different meaning to someone’s words is your raison detre. Your reason to be. It’s just what you do. Well, that and straight up lying. I’m used to it.

            If you follow your own advice (ie the well-written statement of yours I quoted above) , people might care about what you have to say. Resorting to the things that cause regret doesn’t look good on you or anyone else. Peace.

            The prince of paradox strikes again. When you don’t appear to have any ethics, any character, or any sense of self awareness and have therefore not likely ever experienced even a twinge of regret about anything, that is one ironic piece of advice to be giving.

            No, it’s NOT a “bigoted assumption,” it’s a TRUE assumption. Huckabee is being blatantly hypocritical when he puts down Beyonce’s music; especially when he supports Ted Nugent, whose music is even worse! That’s bigoted AND hypocritical!!

            Have to say you’re just refusing to admit you lost this one. Nobody’s making nasty remarks about you, nor do they seem to be implying any of the things you claim. Face it: you stood up for Huckabee’s obsessive condemnation of Beyonce, then tried to change the subject to something else when it was pointed out he’s “pallin’ around” -to borrow a phrase – with someone far worse. No one accused you of liking Nugent, so there was no need to deny it. Can’t you just admit that lots of political figures these days are dripping with hypocrisy and let the matter drop?

            Thanks for the mid-discussion observation. I don’t agree that Huckabee’s comments are an obsessive personal condemnation. I agree with his contention the singer’s lyrics are vulgar. The same theme seems to permeate a lot of her music. But, this isn’t personal, it’s just observation.

            I don’t get the need to claim a winner or loser here unless you view communication as a competition. I see it more as an exchange, an opportunity to learn, to agree, to resolve. Some use it to control, to minimalize, to subjugate.

            This isn’t personal, just observation huh. You’re saying that your criticism of Beyonce’s lyrics aren’t personal, just observation. Right. This was your direct quote 13 days ago concerning simple criticism of Ted Nugent’s lyrics: “No need to make it personal about some singer I don’t even listen to.”

            This is your special quality that makes you irritating in a way that I’ve seen in no others, angelstink.

            That’s right. You simply don’t get it dtgraham. The concept of discussion, without making it personal, is entirely possible. When you accept this, life gets a lot less difficult. It might even make you better person.

            Huh??? As a stand alone post by itself, that’s an admirable concept. However, as a response to the idea that I was trying to get across, it makes absolutely zero sense.

            Doesn’t it ever occur to you that one of the many things you consistently do is to contrast principles in a nonsensical way that scream out double standard? I just gave you another example of it and that’s what I was clearly getting at.

            No matter. This is my last post. Two weeks of this is enough. I now understand why Inspector Dreyfus was slowly driven insane by Inspector Clouseau in the old Pink Panther series. Before I find myself walking around with my eyes twitching and mumbling your name, I have to end this.

            Claiming that others are implying things that they’re not is just what this freak does.

            Pointing out Huckabee’s hypocrisy in supporting Nugent while criticizing Beyonce doesn’t meet any dictionary definition of bigoted. This is all just part of angelstink’s game.

        Unfortunately, we are “forced” to listen to some of this whenever we’re stopped at stop lights, stop signs, etc. because, for some inane reason, people seem to think that it’s very important that we’re aware of the music they’re listening to. But, unfortunately for them, they’ll all be deaf by the time they hit their mid-20’s (or sooner)! Problem with that is that then they will turn the music up even louder!!! I shudder to think how much fun that’ll be!

            Why would you even think I have a closed mind…you don’t even know me! I just prefer to listen to my own choice of music without being blasted out of my car because someone thinks that the entire block needs to be aware of what they are listening to! I certainly don’t crank up my country music for the world to hear! As for rolling up the windows….that doesn’t help when they have it to the umpth decibels!
