Right to Life Regional Message Board
I think there's a level of difference between being accused of not showing respect and just outright "moron", "idiot", "you are not very smart", etc. Maybe the accusation of not showing respect went too far into the personal, but it's still based on the argument, not just taking outright swings at someone. Even if it did go too far, in a region like this where we're all on the same side on at least one important issue, even if we disagree in other areas, I think an effort at de-escalation rather than escalation would be in order, we're 'neighbors' of sorts here, not enemies.
Mine is based on the argument. I explained to her why I think she is stupid ("No, you moron,...."). I started calling her a moron after she insulted me. In fact, I never called her dumb or a libtard before she made the post. I was not just taking "swings". I thought we were supposed to treat our neighbors with respect. She wasn't.
Meaning, maybe you should talk to her as well.
I'll do my best to see where you're coming from, maybe I just have a bad sense of things, but as a general matter, I still think that there's a difference between an accusation of being disrespectful and downright insults. Maybe what Cocles said toed over the line, maybe, but the comeback most definitely strode across it. Two wrongs don't make a right, and doing something worse most certainly does not.
I want Chicago to leave Illinois (no offense to whoever said they were from Chicago), I really dont think it is right one city can control everything. I was thinking it would be awesome if we had a senate represented by counties (as in, Cook County where Chicago is would get just as much representation as any loosely populated county in central or Southern IL). Unfortunately, I was looking into it and a Supreme Court ruling says state legislatures' legislative districts have to be equal in population (I'm not sure exactly what the ruling was about: I'm guessing a state wanted a legislature with legislators representing equal portions of land, then again I dont know if they wanted a second house elected based off population). I believe they're referring to the part of the constitution that assures every state "a republican form of government", but I really dont like that ruling. Back then, I am pretty sure a "republic" was a vague term (it really still is): some defined it as any form of government other than a monarchy or a dictatorship. Some as a government with aspects of different forms of government. (Our federal government is a constitutional republic, and we have ASPECTS of democracy (a democratically-elected House)). Wikipedia claims "a republican form of government" is different than a "republic", however, and that a "Republican form" MUST imply either a direct or indirect (thereby requiring districts with equal populations) democracy. Whether its constitutional, I want it to be. States are here to give us self government. In other words, I want a Senate elected by counties, or kick Chicago out. We cant have self government with Chicago and JB Fatass controlling everything (my relatively purple district elected a Republican which destroyed the Democrat running. I actually lost 100 bucks voting to some meth head who stole my wallet when I stupidly left it sitting on the table for a second. He acted like he was looking for my drivers license to find the person who owned the wallet when I walked up to him. He gave me my wallet with some money and I realized after walking away he took 100 bucks). I bet JB Fatass's fatass hasn't been to Springfield. As huge urban areas are getting bigger, states need to be broken up so that one or 2 cities city dont have all the power. I would be totally fine with an indirect democracy on a state level if the opinion of anyone outside one area (in this case, Chicago) mattered.
I'm wholly behind Chicago seceding from Illinois, or vice-versa. We look like we're moving towards the second great geographical division in American politics, where its not about political differences between states, North v. South, as within states, Illinois v. Chicago, Washington v. Seattle, even New York v. NYC to some extent, and it's generally not a pleasant experience. It's not just blue states either, though that's more pronounced, you've got stuff like Lexington in Kentucky, etc.
It'll always be bitterness between one group forcing their views on the other, one way or another. There'll always be differences and politics, but lowering the tension by separating out where possible is something I would be a fan of. (It would not even be particularly partisan, believe it or not. Outside of Cook County, Trump only got a hair over 50% of the vote, Illinois would be solidly purple with that division.)
I am saying that I haven't insulted anyone in this region before she insulted me. That is all I am saying. I have insulted public figures. I have used the term "libtard" but not as an insult to anyone. I have great respect for others' opinions. For instance, I didnt insult the dude who we were talking with about gun control and abortion (and I assumed he was for gun control (I dont know if he is)), I gave an argument in a friendly way
I get what you are saying I think. I was talking about this with my friend, and I think politics in America has gone from North vs South, to more Urban vs Rural (or big city vs small city). That is why we need to start cutting up states in my opinion (because many rural areas no longer have self government)
I am sorry if I offended anyone (except the person who insulted me).
Holy moly guacamole. Alright, I missed your first post beastland, calling people "libtards" is offensive to many, and although you directed it at individuals, your target being their views makes it a broad insult. Besides, you shouldn't show them such disrespect anyway, even if you disagree and find them dumb. I appreciate that you toned down the wording in your reply.
Please, everyone, keep the board free from personal attacks, even if the targets are not on this board. Remember you'll get further targeting ideas over people, and probably come away better for it as a person too. If things continue, and I'm glad they seem to be cooling off, I will start suppressing posts.
Being able to apologize and move forward when you're in the wrong, even to those who have wronged you perceived or otherwise, is a sign of grace and strength, not weakness.
