I already knew TWO was a commie, but it's rather impolite of her/him/it to be sending trolls to your site. Good catch. They are as effective in their endeavors as Clinton was in protecting us from terrorists.

The funny thing is, if you go over there and actually read their comments, it is the same type of mindless blather they have been spewing here, only without the ad hominem attacks.

It is like a bunch of 12 year olds high fiving each other for acting like a bunch of asses. Quite humorous.

And some might argue that Tori and Eddie are being immature for not letting cars with Democratic or liberal bumperstickers merge into their lanes of traffic.

Please, pray tell, explain to me how we have any legislative power to allow or disallow bumper stickers. We were stating our opinions, just like you do here TWO.

Tori:
Is the point of your blog, just a space where other like minded individuals such as yourself can come to reinforce one another that you are "right" or do you actually questions and think about your beliefs? All I see on this blog is hate and ignorance.

I don't have a problem with bumperstickers. I have a problem with people who allow bumperstickers to influence their driving.

When driving, your primary concern should be safety, not politics. You should not be making driving decisions based on your feelings toward some bumpersticker in front of you.

To be fair, Tori hasn't run anyone off her blog yet.

I generally do not agree with what Tori writes on her blog, but I admire the fact that she leaves her blog open to commentary from both sides of the political spectrum.

Not to be argumentative, but Ohio is more of a purple state.

Only someone without a working brain... Someone who was acutally in possession of a working brain that they actually used would have seen the little smiley after TT's statement and realized it was a light hearted joke, and gotten on with their lives.

Really? Let's, reading from the bottom up I see:

1. a post with Letterman's top-10 list basically poking fun at Bush's pick for SCOTUS

2. A post about the Cubs and White Sox

3. A link to an insightful op-ed piece

4. A prayer request

5. A light hearted poke at libs in traffic

6. A light hearted look at club Gitmo

7. A light hearted poke at all the lefty haters who evidently can't tollerate light hearted pokes at their driving or their bumper stickers

8. A post pointing out where all these nut-jobs are coming from

So far, I don't see much in the way of actual hate. AAMOF, to see any actual hate, I have to start reading the ad hominem attacks from the lefties who evidently can't tollerate people poking fun at their bumper stickers or their driving.

Well put Stuffle. Hate is in the eye of the beholder. If that's all Adrianne wants to see, that's all she will see. Really, this is a blog about Tori's personal life and experiences with a mixing of her interest in politics from a Republican's viewpoint. She's not leading a holy war here.

My interpretation...

Tori put a smiley after her statement telling liberals to enjoy sitting in traffic, which is obviously sarcasm because no one enjoys sitting in traffic.

Hey, I do. It all depends on the station you have on.

"Hey, I do. It all depends on the station you have on."

I like to guess at what music people listen to...

Let me guess...

Eddie listens to mostly classic rock from the 60s and 70s, but his guilty pleasure is late 80s to early 90s pop.

Stuffle listens to mostly current hard rock and alternative music, but likes the older stuff on occasion.

How did I do?

While we are on the subject, when I am stuck in traffic, I enjoy watching people get all pissed off about shit that they have no control over in the first place. Pretty funny when it happens.

I flashback to movie scenes like the beginning of Office Space where he's stuck in traffic and every other lane moves except the one he is in...story of my life.

So, before I head out to the bars, I'd like to defend my blog. If you were to take a minute and look at old posts of mine, you'd see they're probably 50% political, 25% teaching, and 25% other random things.

The hate started when my blog was put up on that website. Otherwise, its been fun, insightful and quirky. I welcome people with other points of view because thats how we get better expressing our viewpoints.

While I may not agree with most liberals, I am not a blind republican. I am pro-choice, basically don't care if gays marry, am for stem cell research and oppose abstinence-only education.

Its the Bush-haters that piss me off. How someone could loathe and wish kidney failure on someone is beyond me. I've never seen such hate in my entire life. Its quite sad in my eyes.

Some people need to seriously lighten up in this crazy world. Now I'm going to go have fun at my old college, forget about my "Adult" life full of responsiblities and drinkie lots of beer.

One of the complaints most common among the liberals who comment here is being unable to post anonymously or being banned after a blog gets tired of their offensive comments.

The blogger is accused of being closed minded. Yet, if you try to trackback to their blog. a lot of them can't be found. I guess they don't want their blogs jammed with all the BS they put out. Take the watchful one for example. He/she is actually someone that goes by "the night owl". TWO, how about putting a link here to your blog.

teacher tori, since you are in Ohio, perhaps you could visit my blog and check out my last post. Your friends there might help.

Anyone else that either lives in California or is familiar with props 78 and 79, feel free to comment.

TWO,

How about starting a blog so we can post links to it and attack your views all day and begin ad hominem name calling attacks on you?

Anyway, as I am only 29 years of age, a Roe V. Wade survivor of the vacuum cleaners and plyers if you will, 60's and 70's music doesn't appeal to me. I typically listen to a hip hop station and then switch between another one that plays a mix of top 40 type music.

All of my siblings are older and I grew up listening to way too much Van Halen and Madonna. I got sick of rock by hearing it way too young and way too often. I then got into gansta rap when I was 12, but later realized it was kind of lame and didn't fit me very well. I now prefer more clean contemporary old school and newer hip hop. I love top 40 and probably always will.

I think I've been civil here on TT's blog.

I was impolite toward you, Eddie, only because I was angry that you deleted my honest attempt to answer some of your questions. Of course, I'm not mad anymore, so maybe we should bury the hatchet on that one.

Of course, I can't control what other people post here.

"I typically listen to a hip hop station and then switch between another one that plays a mix of top 40 type music."

Interesting. I never would have guessed you are a hip hop fan.

I don't closely follow hip hop, or any other genre for that matter, but I like a lot of rap and hip hop I hear on the radio occasionally. I don't really give a damn about what rap artists are saying in their music... I'm more interested in music than lyrics or poetry. Most music lyrics are shallow anyway... not that there is anything wrong with that.

TWO,

I wasn't referring to you making rude comments, I was referring to the link you provided for your buddies at the DU who came here and started attacking Tori and anyone else with a conservative POV.

I understand your frustration with my blog, but it just isn't a debate forum.

"I wasn't referring to you making rude comments, I was referring to the link you provided for your buddies at the DU who came here and started attacking Tori and anyone else with a conservative POV."

Since Tori's "Libs In Traffic" post was directed at liberals, I thought I would help her out by pointing it out to... well... liberals.

As long as TT's blog is open to the public, I will consider it to be fair game for discussion on the forums I frequent.

It kind of deters from honest debate to provide links for others to begin name calling. However, if that is your plan for persuasion, good luck.

Well, to be perfectly honest, I expected that some DUers might behave badly here, but then again, TT's "Libs In Traffic" post was pretty much a celebration of bad behavior.

I mean, if you guys are going to be rude to liberals on the road, then why shouldn't liberals be rude to you guys on the information superhighway? Fair is fair, no?

Plenty of liberals were mean to me when I was with a W sticker on the back of my car. It's a two way street. One side isn't holier than thou.

 
At 3:28 PM , Blogger Tori said...

yeah, I got shouted at all the time by libs....flicked off too..and not because of my bad driving b/c I'm a Driver Ed. teacher!

I don't mind people coming in here and commenting, I find it interesting. It just gets annoying when it resorts to name calling and immature attacks. From now on if there are really rude comments and name calling, I will delete those posts.

But you can bring your DU henchman and I have my posse so may be best, smartest bloggers win :) (no questions who that'll be, elephants kick ass!!)

Yes, insults are generally an immature way of expressing one's self. Of course, cutting off people in traffic is also an immature method of expressing one's self.

Well, OK... I suppose not letting a car cut in front of you while traffic is stopped is safer than not letting a car cut in front of you while traffic is moving, but it is still the same kind of rude behavior you criticize DUers for exhibiting.

All I'm trying to say is... Stop pretending that DU's commentary about you was created without provocation. It wasn't. It was a response to your celebration of rude behavior on the road.
