Sure.

I figured you were okay with the actions of the IRS.  Why spend the energy to speak out against something when your heart isn't in it.  Right?  Still waiting for you to explain your double standard when it comes to what you choose to respond to and the allegations you've made that when others don't respond in a timely fashion, it equates to tacit approval.

(There's no one else here I can joust with, so I've been saving it up.   Smiley)

I'm not ok with the actions of the IRS. Still trying to put words in my mouth, eh? You must be lonely.

I don't think someone who said they were disgusted by me or whatever deserves much of a response. You did apologize, kind of, put I had hopes that you might take a different tone. Oh well.

Not lonely, just bored.  Get it right.   Smiley

You owe an apology for your poutrage when it came to the responsiveness of the rest of the board.  You still haven't made amends for that, especially considering your hiatus from the board.  You should address that double standard and acknowledge that you were wrong.  End of story.

Then we can talk about the IRS specifically.  You're not getting away with one sentence on that topic.  "Not ok" doesn't cut it.  I want you to acknowledge that the IRS is being used as a political weapon.  I'd like you to acknowledge the Obama Admin's responsibility for that, as the executive branch appoints those in charge.

And then we can start on the surveillance issues.

I did apologize, to everyone on the board. Perhaps you forgot that part.

You also might have forgotten that you don't get to write the end of the story.

I have no responsibility to live up to your subjective standards, when you likewise have never apologized for your own double standards of who you go after and how you do it.

You seem to want to bring that same tone back. I can't do much about that part.

I don't remember that.  Got a quote?

We haven't begun to write the story yet.  Who is talking about ending it?

You have no responsibility to live up to your own standards, which is why you've got a double standard.  The tone never stopped because you've continued to be dishonest.  Your dishonesty stems from the fact that you flew apart when people didn't respond quick enough.  But when you decide not to respond and chase butterflies, we're supposed to give you a pass?  No, you don't get one from me.

Now, are you up to discussing the important issues, such as the IRS scandal?  You voted for the guys in office that are responsible for that.  Do you think you share some responsibility for voting for them or not?  Just curious.

Here ya go:

"I apologize to you Pi, for my tone and any insults along the way. We disagree on many things and agree on some others. Perhaps I might try again. In poor taste for the BBS though, I agree.

I would expect better of myself, you are right BI. Apologies across the board."

So I 'flew apart' by making a crickets joke? Yes, talk about double standards, indeed. Just like you flew apart when it was pointed out that you have different standards for different posters here, based upon their political views and who you call out on what and when. I guess you finally decided you didn't want to alienate your little echo chamber, so you backed off on calling folks out. You don't get a pass on that either, so oh well.

Really though, I was in fact on vacation and out on the road. You've got many years to make up when you read and never posted before you can have the weight to call me out on anything like that. So if you want to beat the drama drum all day, go right ahead. I will still be standing here smiling.

There's a prime example of the attitude I'm talking about.  You're saying that because you've been posting longer, there's some different standard that applies to you?

Sorry, but that's not the way it works when it comes to having a discussion.  The argument you present is whatever it is.  Tenure on the board doesn't lend anything to your argument.  It either stands or fails on its own merits.

In what way have I backed off of anything when it comes to consistently sticking to what I believe in?  Show me an example.

Also, you're still ducking the discussion about the IRS and a few other things.  You took your little break from the board because you can't defend the actions of the President you voted for.  And I noticed that you ignored the question I asked in my last post.

How long are you going to avoid those kinds of questions?  How about another one?  What have you done to show that you don't support what the Obama Administration has done?  Have you written them a letter?  Have you talked about it to the local Democrats?  Or is your poutrage really just positioning, and in reality, you don't really give a damn what Obama does so long as he furthers a socialist agenda you support?

No, I'm just saying that I will still be here posting. You seem hell bent on more drama.

It is kind of funny how much you seem to need attention. Pretending to be outraged at a crickets comment is not about discussing the ideas. You've already said you ignore certain behavior and posts here, so don't go back now and try to rewrite your position just to argue more. I've clearly stated what I was for and what I was against on many issues related to Obama. I didn't defend the IRS stuff. To pretend all that isn't true is just silly.

Yes, I do ignore certain behavior.  I've ignored some of yours, as a matter of fact.  I don't need attention.  I just want you to stand up and own your vote for Obama.

I wasn't the one that said that not posting in a thread in a timely manner equates to tacit approval.  That was you.

Clearly you just want drama. It's getting more obvious every time you post.

And you're dodging the issues, which is what you've been doing for weeks now.

I can explain the concept of vacation to you, during the summer when the kids are out of school, but obviously you need one yourself. Here's hoping you can get one soon.

I could explain the concept of cowardice to you, but since you exemplify it so well, that shouldn't be necessary.

I'll ask you again:  What have you done to show that you don't support what the Obama Administration has done?  Have you written them a letter?  Have you talked about it to the local Democrats?  What have you done?

Again, here's hoping you can get one soon, before your head explodes.
