Coz...don't flatter yourself. Who trolling who?



You always say you are fooling around while verbally beating the crap out of someone. Weird.

What is so humorous is how you guys think your vote still counts. Or as if it makes any difference what puppet is placed in office.

Well, I'll tell you a story about how much a vote counts.

I canvassed for 3 precincts during the 2008 election. We got 147 infrequent voters to the polls in those precincts - we even gave 3 of them rides. These are people who have voted in at least one of the past 4 elections (if you want never to be canvassed - vote every election).

Although we can't know who each of these voters supported, we do know they were all registered Democrats - so its likely that most of those votes went to Gregoire (the Dem).

Gregoire won that election by 127 votes. Our band of ten volunteers can handily claim that we were responsible for most of that winning margin. Anyone who voted can claim the same.

Gregoire went on to approve Equal Marriage and Legal Marijuana - two of the most historic reforms in our states' history - the second a first in world history. Her GOP opponent strongly opposed both measures.

That was the tipping point for ending the War on Drugs(shout out to CO, as well). Now, OR and AK are due to legalize this year. Uruguay became the first nation to do so in December, now the architects of pot legalization for WA are travelling worldwide to discuss national legalization in a number of other countries - and several US states, of course. That cat is out of the bag, and it can afford a lot of plane tickets.

This reform marked the beginning of the end of a 42 year long expensive, violent, and failed War on Drugs.

But hey - War on Drugs/no War on Drugs, Equal Marriage/No Equal Marriage - what's the difference, right? It's all pointless, isn't it?

Yeah, cynicism is all the rage, but your vote really does matter, policies really do matter, even if not to you personally, and our political choices produce very different real world outcomes. Votes are the bricks this country is made out of.

If you disagree with my politics, by all means, stay home. That increases my political power and eliminates yours. I'm more than happy to take up that slack for ya so the world looks more like what I want over time.

Scott...thanks for the invite. As to climbing 5.12, I just hike a lot with wife and our Lab Eva and boulder to stay in shape. I like new routes, they keep me going and being with friends in a beautiful spot is the topper.

At this stage in the game I have little to no interest in climbing hard, I really just want to have fun.

I vote every election and feel there is a great deal of difference between the people running and their agenda.

"Green Eggs and Ham" is probably the only book Palin has read.

Voting Does Matter!

But if you vote for Republicans and then expect something other than failure, I guess voting doesn't matter to you.

Voting Does matter, Vote Christian Republicans out of power

Our lobbyist informs us that legislators are, indeed, scared shitless of voters.

They don't like unemployment any more than anyone else, apparently.

Philo's Mar 6 "reel faxtism" rant must mean, re:OT, trying to prove he's a Republican?
Lemmee try to recall, how many MILLION eyewitnesses, how many scores of thousands of coincident, independent photographs were taken, all redundantly underscoring the veracity of the apparent, i.e. what actually struck the Towers?
NEVER U MIND Citizen 'cause the wacko in the bunker TELLS ALL!!!
I personally always suspected the Lizard People, so pay that extra 5spot to get the Orgone Generator pocket on yer chalkbags or else they might getcha, like they got Derek, and Bachar, Paul Preuss and John Harlin!

Are my eyes deceiving me, that some 50,000 comments and counting have been squandered over the years on this one blog?
And I thought the Drug Plane Trolling site was a waste of good climbing time.
1. I'm Right (rephrase that -I'm CORRECT)
2. You're Wrong.
3. NO, YOU are WRONG, and I'M RIGHT.
4. NO, I was Correct the FIRST Time - and, you're an A**HOLE.
5. REPEAT 1-4, like, 50,000 times.
6. See how far we've come?

3. NO, YOU are WRONG, and I'M RIGHT.


Why?
Because we never say that.
we wait for Republicans to say something, then we prove them wrong

They have the opportunity for any rebuttal, but they never have one because they know they're wrong.

I think it's funny that this "leading from behind" meme is such a thing considering that anyone with leadership training knows that someone who can effectively do so is a very skilled leader. The idiotic dichotomy is perfectly illustrated in this TDS segment:

Republicans hate Obama so irrationally that they now worship Putin.
