I am amazed that truthout is still around. I remember them being the ones trying to hype a conspiracy around Paul Wellstone's death. They are not harbingers of anything truthful. Not surprising that my buddy here is using them as a source...explains the skewed development of opinion.

The "source" in question is Daniel Ellsberg. Opinion cannot be skewed because it is opinion, which is by definition skewed. You might also want to check your understanding of the word "harbinger." Note also the question mark in the heading...

If that's your standard, why do you link approvingly to Gateway Pundit?

I am shocked. Could whatfur be a wingnut?

It's possible, but I truly followed truthout for a couple years (for laughs) ...years ago...and they generally represented nutcase opinions. I have not seen them linked to in ages. Assuming they have not changed much it did not surprise me that you linked to them.

It also does not surprise me that Keefe is right back at it stalking me...posting nothing of consequence. Ya know Brendan you can take that "ignore" setting one step further just by having some self-dicipline.

Oh and my use of harbinger works just fine and it was the development of the opinion that I said was skewed. You ought to try reading first and opening your mouth second.

Along with harbinger, you might also want to look up stalking. Commenting on what you post on a public forum is not, by any sane person's definition, "stalking." (Nor, for that matter, is Googling your username and observing that you have established a Web presence under that identity.)

Thanks for ducking the question about Hateway, though. That's enough of an answer for me.

Keefe, you linked to a bunch of items that had no relation to me as if you were reporting on things I had linked to previously. Once again, in an obvious attempt to misrepresent the truth. You are a cad and a documented liar. I have asked on numerous occasions that you stay the fuck away from me. Your inability to do so certainly should have people questioning your sanity, not mine. Pretty sure most people here, even if they do not wish to admit it, would consider you a stalker.

Au contraire Mr. pride in ignorance, we marvel at your inability to accept the terms of a public forum. Post and deal with the replies. Most are wise enough to stay away from you. I lack the self-control, especially since bullies need to be confronted when avoidance is worse.

Wrong. I was not trying to claim that you had linked to those exact posts. I linked to examples of someone who is well-known, to use your words, to "hype a conspiracy," in light of your belittling another source for this very reason. This was just to illustrate your inconsistency.

I presumed any sane person would have been able to see that.

I ask you both to kindly stop the harrassment.

Try using your Ignore List if you don't want to read responses to what you post in a public forum.
