I admire your strength and beliefs.
Oh, that's a nice one! Strength in what sense-where Elizabeth do you see that strength? In angry back talk to any reason which has been expressed politely or with dose of sarcasm?Just because something's 'been tried before' doesn't eliminate it from the spectrum of possibility.
It looks more to me that Bossman is behaving like a child, who was sent to his room to do his homework, he goes there, standing at the door still saying angrily to himself- I hate you, I hate you! And that is all he can do. He has no clue what the meaning of reason is.
Idealism? you say-that is what you are admiring? What really idealism is, and what are those ideals Bosman is expressing?
Exactly right-and that is the one scary part why Kush and I and Linda and others are bothering to respond to this nightmarish propaganda stunt, which you call idealism. Experiments based on that sort of "idealism" have been tried with the most horrible results, with extermination and misery of millions in the past century.Just because something's 'been tried before' doesn't eliminate it from the spectrum of possibility. -
I am certain, that all of us who would visit this Forum are decent people-of course with different views and experiences-they don't exploit other people for shameless monetary profit, they make their living by using their skills and talent, strength and wisdom etc. For many, including me, who have made many sacrifices to live accordingly inner believes and ideals, who gave their talent to hard work supporting their families and children, giving all the love there is possibly to give-it is shameful and offensive for you to tell that you "admire" his idealism.
He-the Bossman and you-if that is what you admire-why don't you go to the Las Vegas, to big casino owners and give them your message? Why don't you go to the streets to the prostitutes and pimps in Los Angeles, New York, Moscow, Hon-Kong, Tokyo etc.- why don't you go to the big bankers, the Swiss bank holders, why don't you go to Africa, to the gun buyers, to the gold and diamond miners, to prisons, to criminals and rapists, why don't you go to wall street - go there, give them the message and then you hear what they have to say.
No Bossman or you, Lizzytish can call me snivelling rat. I've seen these big mouth "idealistic" rats for who they really are. I've also seen that pretentious liberalism and pretentious compassion-it is all words, which costs nothing among many liberal American women, who are all so sweet honey, honey, honey in their talk, but when it comes to reality- they can be real bitches towards their husbands, children, colleges and neighbors. No pretentiousness can disguise that. I am 100% sure, if Bossman would move in with you in your house, without paying one month rent, you would kick his ass out off your house, no matter what idealistic blubber he would offer to you. In the end-it is not really Boss what is so bothersome in this particular situation but you- Lizzytish. Bossman possibly has some serious problems, let's put his soul into God's hands, but I don't believe that you would have that little education as not to understand very simple, basic sociopolitical-philosophical statements and their sources.
I know you've been playing this "compassionate liberal" role for a long while and it is your comfort zone, but why cant you be truthful for a change? I did not want it a personal attack on you, but the arrogance of your last statements, presenting yourself as the only person here who would understand idealism and strength, dedication to ideals-it is too much to take in this comedy, which turns to ugliness with your bravo's to "idealism." I take it as a spitting on the man and women who carried out their ideals with grace. Mother Theresa never blabbed about her intentions, she went and did what she saw as proper thing to do.
