Na - THAT weather was way colder, but at least the storm came in on the summit and not midway up.

This is just the descent on Chair Peak. Quick day trip.

Ron didn't take it as a joke. I would be surprised if you didn't notice that. If you did notice it and didn't try to get him to appreciate the joke, then you didn't really mean it as a joke or you just don't care how he takes things. Either way.. its not something I respect. If you don't respect someone enough to be concerned when you see that they didn't take something as a joke, then you really shouldn't be pointing jokes as them, because its not really a joke. Its a pointed stick. Light jab or not, you could see that he was upset, yet you don't care. Its the lack of respect and the lack of caring that I am growing tired of on this planet.

If that is how the majority on this planet want to behave, then you can have the planet. Hopefully I will be out of here shortly.

I will take my leave of this thread. Good night y'all.

Funny story - depending on your POV. I forgot the fuel canister on Triple C (we were camped at Colchuck, as you do). After the initial - you know, reaction, I promised to a) cook all our meals on a fire and b) find liquid water.

The fire was no big - though I had to get up a bit early for it.

I wound up chopping through a couple of feet of ice to get to Colchuck Lake, then covered the hole with branches to keep it from refreezing.

For weeks afterwards, I kept on getting PMs from other climbers thanking me for that damn watering hole.

John if you are just popping in here and taking an out of context snap shot of the action then your assessment is more understandable. You only need to scroll through two or three pages of Ron's posts to see multiple examples of him posting something appalling then telling those who called him on it that they missed the obvious sarcasm. Or where he had to later explain he was joking. He recently accused a poster of trotting out unverifiable credentials and thus he felt their opinion was all but invalid. Then and in almost the same breath he trots out another of a long list of his unverifiable honoraria as indicating the legitimacy of his claims.

Ron had the unmitigated gall to tell Coz that because of his self proclaimed status as an honorary member of a South African tribe he knew better what difficulties that minoritys faced than did Coz who is actually in a relationship with a black lady. Utter BS and worthy of a little poke and jab. But if you want to tell me that I look bad for what I said without being aware of and also admonishing the absolutely despicable rants and ugly personal attacks by folks like Ron, Coz and Chief then that is your right. But don't expect me to value your perspective.


What these guys don't like is being called on the lies and misinformation they post in-spite of the complete debunking of their canned talking points. When confronted with truth or fact that refutes their adamantly held view they attack the messenger with burbling nonsense that is most akin to playground taunts like "Oh yeah well my dad can whup your dad". Most of us liberals have tried ad nauseum to address these folks intelligently and respectfully. But you can only hear "Obama is a Muslim show me the birth certificate" so many times before concluding that you are dealing with fools. I don't suffer fools.
Tvash is another breath of fresh air but I predict he will soon enough be reduced to posting links, cartoons and one liners.

I get all of that Philo. Ron is very biased in his opinion of himself. So is Coz. Guess what. So are you. You call it a joke, then you qualify it as a small jab. So which is it? Are you adding to the sh#t show or helping to dial it back?

That last sentence is very apropos.

For the record - I post only original content - or at least what my sorry ass excuse for a brain thinks is original content. No cartoons, no stupid recycled zingers! If I post a link - it won't be to either Huffpo or Fox, I can guarantee you that. Now you may think the NYT is a librul rag and the Economist is a fascist shill, but that's another matter entirely. At least it's journalism, such as it is.

Neither dating a black woman nor being an honorary member of a South African Tribe makes one an expert on race relations. Both are near and dear to the respective posters' hearts, so one might consider that before commenting on them.

Race is one of those topics that never goes well on the innernuts. Bottom line is that we're all trying to figure out how to deal with people different from us - dick v no dick, black v white, libtard v conservatard, old v young, boulderers v aid climbers, sheepshaggers v horsef*#kers. Nobody escapes.

I think if you forgave everybody here for everything, right now - you might have a better evening. Not that you're going to have a bad evening - but you'll have an even better one.

Some assume beforehand that that will make them look weak - but I've never seen that happen, ever.

You could give em a chance to figure some stuff out, but it won't be a zero tolerance situation. A little slack goes a long way.

Sounds impossible at first, but its really so damn easy.

PLAIN FACT IS that when i came on here it was the obama years, and as i didn't swoon to obama, philo and many others began targeting me.

Plain fact is you called people idiots and fools for voting for Obama, including me. You set yourself up as a target. No high road for you. Nor for Philo.

but hey.. its everyone else's fault this forum devolves into a sh#t show on a regular basis. You certainly didn't have anything to do with it, nor did Philo or Coz of the Chief, or Norton, or Jhedge.

Nope.. all of you are blameless.

Its us pussy liberals. Its our fault.

Okay, so some of the rightwingers want the leftwingers to play nicey nice with their sensitive feelings. Sure. But then the Rightwing keeps coming up with wingnutz like this character.
How can any senitent being imagine for a moment that it is possible to have a rational discussion with people who think like this knuckle dragging, mouth breathing, 6000 year old flat Earther?

WATCH: Front-Runner in GOP Senate Primary Says Planned Parenthood Wants to Kill Newborns



According to North Carolina GOP Senate candidate Greg Brannon, Planned Parenthood has a secret plan to legalize the killing of newborn babies as old as three months. Brannon, a Rand Paul-backed obstetrician who is a front-runner for the GOP nomination, made the allegations at a November fundraiser for Hand of Hope, a chain of crisis pregnancy centers he operates in North Carolina.

Well how far will [it] go? Last year, February 29, 2012, the Journal of Ethics in Australia, they debated that. They said we already know abortion is fine, why stop in the womb? Why not three months after. Why should we end the responsibility at that point? It could happen in America. Florida's trying to do it right now and so is Georgia. Planned Parenthood. Because we allowed that slippery slope. Every human being deserves life, liberty, and property.

Brannon's statement appears to be based on testimony given last year by a lobbyist for the Florida Alliance of Planned Parenthood Affiliates. Asked how the organization's physicians would respond if a baby were born alive during an abortion, the lobbyist appeared confused and said she'd have to check. But in a follow-up statement, Barbara Zdravecky, CEO of Planned Parenthood of Southwest and Central Florida, unambiguously rejected the notion: "In the extremely unlikely event that the scenario presented by the legislators ever happened, of course Planned Parenthood would provide appropriate care to both the woman and the infant."

"These absurd and patently false claims by Greg Brannon demonstrate just how extreme and out of touch he is when it comes to women's health issues—and the rest of the Republican Senate candidates in North Carolina are just as dangerous," Planned Parenthood Action Fund Executive Vice President Dawn Laguens said in a statement. Brannon's campaign did not respond to request for clarification.

In the same speech, Brannon said women get abortions because of the same nihilistic worldview that causes them to believe in evolution. "We have people who believe they evolve from nothing, they came from nothing, they'll go to nothing, and today doesn't matter, so when they have a mistake, why not move on?" he said.

The most recent survey of the race, from Public Policy Polling, showed Brannon tied with Thom Tillis, the speaker of the state House of Representatives, for the Republican nomination—and running even with Sen. Kay Hagan (R-N.C.) in a hypothetical November matchup.

Just a note:

Do these people realize that the words they post are forever..

and if you are not apparently kidding/joking, then your words are taken seriously as "what kind of d&*k would say something so stupid and loaded with bigotry" against whatever group, be it liberal or noob

Thanks Coz
You really add to the debate.

Projection = Coz's circle jerk, leg humping, member sucking

Interesting how you describe this thread, since I never witnessed any circle jerk.
Nor have I worshipped Obama, I only defend him against the lies and the propaganda.
Like I would for any decent president.

Cry me a river Scotty. I'd prefer socialized single payer. Cut the corporations out of it altogether. Yeah, the liberal approach.

Instead, we got what you cons wanted, what your Heritage Foundation think tank proposed back in the 90s. Got what you wanted, and still crying. Can I get you a blanky and binky?

Coz, who do you suggest we put in power, Putin? Rand Paul?

Or do we revolt and start from scratch?

Or do we just give up? and hope that everyone else dies quickly?

What??
