    If you do not understand what I am saying, then don't pretend to know by introducing things that only cloud the issue. This has nothing at all do do with representative democracy. Rule of law states that you must have a defined percentage of majority in the Senate, which is 60, in order to pass. Reconciliation, which is a major issue for the Tea Party, is part of the reason they are protesting. You are wrong about the why of the Tea Party.

    Deal with it is, in fact the reason Democrats will not be long for this show IMO. You fail to see what is in front of you. The American people voted for Obama, that's fine. They did not vote for Socialization of the American way of life. Elections have consequences? So do Governments who do not listen to the people. Be careful what you ask for. You may just get it.

    This Bill will not pass unless the Democrats use some underhanded means by which to get it passed. If that happens, their will be consequences.

    I'm just telling you how it is. You can scream to the hills as long and as loud as you like but the facts are that America does not want this and if you force it, you will pay dearly.

    Especially when certain individuals edit my posts in ways that don't make sense ... and to make themselves look better.

    The only thing I edited in your post, and my response to your post was a word that is not to be used on this forum. So spare me the whine and cheese on that one because if I wanted to be a real smartA I would have gave you an infraction over it. Get over the butt sore.

    Oh nice, here come the threats. The word isn't filtered in any way and has been used on this forum before without incident, so your self-serving explanation for censoring my post is pure bunk. I guess it's good to be the king.

    Oh...now the victim role comes out. Where exactly did I threaten you? I said I could have given an infraction but did not.

    I edited one three letter word and you are going to go woe is me and act like it changed everything.

    However I will give you a word of advice and this is not a threat.

    The Guidelines and how we enforce them are not open to public discussion. If you question or disagree with the policies please feel free to send a private message to any of the Staff members to discuss it privately. We may not agree with your concerns, but we will respect your right to discuss what you disagree with, as long as it does not disrupt this site, and is done with mutual respect. If you cannot accept the following Guidelines, please logout or avoid posting on this site.

    So in other words, if you got a problem with it...take it to another mod or Hostile.

    77% support the public option. So it seems like Obama is listening to the people, and they want socialism. Ha!
    Dems have 60 votes in the Senate, so saying they have to use "underhanded" means to get anything passed is absurd. the could very well get 60 Dems on board.

    You don't know how it is. America wants there public option, and just because you and your extreme faction don't want it doesn't mean it is anti-democratic for the Senate to pass it. You lost the election because people disagree with you on the issues. Deal with it.

    Your 77% link doesn't work. Must be a Government ran website.

    If you have 60 votes, then why haven't you passed it yet?

    If America wanted what you and yours are selling, we would not be having this issue.

    Yes, casually dropping hints about infractions (which you've done more than once), does tend to chill free expression. Crazy, no? BTW, if someone called me a smart***, I wouldn't blink twice, because it's demonstrably true.

    You had a clear conflict of interest. As such, you should have recused yourself from the editing chore.

    Other mods are just as bewildered by your behavior in the PZ. I won't embarrass them (or you) by posting the PMs.

    Oh wait...put a space between the word you typed and it would have been filtered. Type that three letter word by itself and it will be filtered. The only reason that one was not is because you typed it together and it was not added to the filtered word list.

    But guess what it appears that it is now, and I don't have the power to add words to the filtered list so don't act like I did.

    Your post was edited, you are complaining about it, you did not receive an infraction about it.

    If you wish to further complain about it, do so in PMs or you will get an infraction.

    I've been guilty of using that in the past but fellas, this is going way past acceptable.

    This is going to sound a bit hypocritical but don't use it. It will only worsen the situation. We all just need to step back and get some distance.

    Better to police ourselves then have somebody else do it.

    It's game day!
