@bad_teammate

sure, here's some examples:

telling people how they should think, no facts, no reasoning, just calling people names

partisan name calling, no content

name calling for no reason

opinion of politics, nothing to do with the thread topic

non content name calling

name calling, telling people how to think, not backing up opinions with facts, just spouting off your opinions on a thread for news and information about a neighborhood in Seattle.

 

 

These are valid. Yet the OP was called a cunt in this very thread with seeming impugnity. If you're an impasive arbitor for Both Sides that wouldn't require pointing out.

Cunt also shouldn't be considered derogatory but as a Henry Miller admirer I'll let that one slide for a separate discussion.

Is please do this better a place where people don’t get called names? Seems to go against everything this website stands for.

Look...I used the C word because in this case it was called for.  I've been on this and TOS for about 10 years now and that was the very first time I've ever gone after anyone like that.  That said, to start another stupid fucking whining thread about the moderation of this site warranted being called a cunt.  And for the record, I didn't even neg her stupid fucking whining post because I'm not a bitch.  If she wants to stay in the stupid CR and get jerked off by people for saying "cheeto bad", then great.  Y'all have fun and know that most of this board agrees, but there is a place for that.  Keep it there.

My dude... Blacklab put it in giant red letters in the OP for this thread... He moved the post and started a new thread.

Again.

Nah,  many posters are sick to death of the CR cabal hijacking every thread with their unique brand of politics that just everyone needs to hear about, and bow down to.  Poor bama chick was used to be the it girl of the cabal. That only works in that little insular world.

Yeah that's what it was. The cabal just wants to play the typical blame game where they can somehow feel superior.

Politicking the shit out of it ?  Hardly, there were political comments made, I made a few, and either edited them away or got called out on it. The humor was every few days the CR boys made a run at the thread, and tried to get in to a slap fight with someone ....... anyone as long as they could spout off their political views.

The CR is no fun when it's an echo chamber, circle jerk.  You start eating your own (SEE: multiple Bad teammate attacks).

You're conflating people who don't think like you and repeat the propoganda as some partisan hacks. Especially considering the president has been tweeting the same debunked talking points that get echoed in DT. Unless you're telling me that we do in fact have COVID under control and we should resume reopening?

How bout that COVID isn't as bad as it looks, and it's only because we're testing more? That's another DT favorite repeated just today by the chief decision maker WRT how we as a nation handle the pandemic of our times?

This is simply not reality. I know you want it to be. Which is it - politics are unavoidable in today’s news, or have right wingers politicized DT?  Those are two different points. At any rate, politics are avoidable in news, and no, right-leaning posters haven’t co-opted DT as their propaganda machine. I don’t know anyone who thinks like me (conservative) that can even stand Trump.

I used to go there as a great news source. Now I only pay attention to one thread, and get Covid news elsewhere. It’s insufferable.

Politics are necessarily unavoidable in discussing current events and today's news. COVID, nascar nooses, police brutality, confederate memorials? Not sure how you avoid politics when the president is actively taking a side and participating in the bad faith and false arguments

And right wing posters haven't co-opted DT into an active propoganda machine, but y'all whine and cry whenever someone links a cause or source to our current situation. And actively push out and discourage even mentioning anything around the decision makers whose decisions put us where we are and are keeping us here.

You're burying your head in the sand and acting like anyone paying attention is a partisan

Covid is hard because you have to ignore Trump. So fucking do that in DT. BLM type issues - brutality, confederate memorials, non-existent NASCAR nooses - these aren’t political issues at this point.

I’m not burying my head in the sand. I just don’t want to hear about it every fucking post. Trump likely got himself voted out of office and I don’t care. The only people that listen to his views on Covid are his idiot followers (not many and dwindling) and leftists who hate him. I don’t care to hear Abbott and Patrick criticisms. I have my own views and if I care enough to express them I will go to CR.

Here's why it's sticking your head in the sand

 

Opening early was a purely political decision and it has put millions of Texans at risk, and contributed directly to the severity of the pandemic in our state. You're ignoring plain facts if you want to protect Abbott and Patrick from criticism

It was an economic decision and was executed poorly in hindsight. If I want to discuss the political nature of their decision making I’ll do so in CR. I want DT for news and how we’re combatting where we are.

Compare TX deaths vs NY deaths.  You're ignoring a fairly important fact.

There is your problem.  You see and look for politics in anything and everything.  Opening back up was a purely economic decision as Rex said.  They should have mandated masks obviously, but I would have supported any governor opening back up regardless of political party.

The decision to trade GDP for human lives is pretty inherently political, my dudes. Especially in the face of opening ahead of data-driven guidelines and medical guidance. 

But hey, I guess it's all just spilled milk and we gotta hope there's no further economic anxiety to justify ignoring data to reopen early again.

The opening up was an economic decision.  There are no more stimulus checks in the pipeline (which happens to be a political decision, as it breaks along party lines), and it's doubtful that the additional aid for businesses that was discussed is going to happen, so if we don't open, we watch the Texas economy really crater.

The mask thing was a purely political decision, reinforced by various law enforcement agencies in Texas refusing to follow Abbott's orders, and the protests in front of the Governor's Mansion, while all of the experts were saying "wear a fucking mask!"

I'm not an Abbott or Goeb fan - but masks and opening up are two separate issues.  They can go hand-in-hand, but they didn't.

In favor of human lives?  What’s the death rate of Texas?  And what, with the exception of bars and limited restaurant capacity (75% to 50%) has changed?  Again, the execution was poor. Reopening the economy was absolutely the right fucking call and it’s not going backwards.

This ^^^but they're gonna come back, and say economics is political.

 When you think everything is political you have issues with reality, and probably several layers of tin foil on yer balls.

While I disagreed with the opening policy, it's easy for me to do so, as I'm working from home, and my wife could also work from home.     

You are forgetting one crucial thing about the opening policy:  A shitload of people and businesses cannot function from home.  If we had stayed closed for another month or two, a shitload more people would be out of work, a shitload more businesses would be going under, and with a lack of stimulus/relief money on the horizon, that means a shitload of people/families losing homes, etc.  Throw that on top of the mental health issues that have been rapidly rising as a result of the past few months.

Do I think Abbott was considering the political implications when weighing reopening?  Absolutely, but I do not think they dominated the decision-making - had there been more  stimulus/relief money for individuals and businesses in the pipeline, I think Abbott would have kept things closed, or left it more up to the locals.

Just check the DT threads on the financial fallout from covid to see why we had to open back up, and why it's less political and more financial.

Just how long do you think a country can continue to be in economic lock down and recover ?  Shut down the economy and how many more people die as the result of that ?  Reports are stating the depression caused just by the last couple months has driven suicide/ depression rates up.  Tie that to a nationwide depression, and those will skyrocket along with crime, families losing their homes.

You’re right. I’ll shoulder the blame for the Coronas. My bad. I’ll start hanging on every word since it’s made such a difference in your life. Remember how when you argued in the CR the Cheeto man was bad and he killed all the people with the ronas and as a result the ronas went away?? That was awesome.

Mostly economic discussion there, except for Captainant. You guys cannot help yourselves. 
Policy decisions made by politicians aren't political, you heard it here on surly first!

Maybe I'm the only one who gives a shit about the rules around here

I find it laughable you think politics trumps economics. It doesn’t and never will. The economy will generally find loopholes around bad policy.
