    I realized a funny thing a long time ago. That when I was looking into information on a subject I read opposing view points and formed my own decisions. Many times I never left any evidence of my own participation because I merely read and moved on, but the information I took from the various places expanded my perspective. RPFs has changed quite a bit over the years. There's a change of tone right now in a number of places online that have become very dismal. It seeps out irl interactions. No reason to even participate in life or forums if you'll have made no difference by sharing with others. Life is about interaction. Why bother with your previous charade if you weren't trying to change people's opinions? Why explain why you did it if you didn't think it matters?

    Rant-2 : to scold vehemently Yes, we are coming at the situation from two different perspectives. And you chose to try and make a display of your love for others by dismissing several of us to prove your point. It was a piss poor tactic which you then went on to lecture those of us you had misconstrued. I hope you feel better now.

    It was out there before, the journalist thought it was a quirk of his TelePrompTer reading. It is now being hyped to show up the absurdity of the lengths Republicans are going to over the health issue.

    Lol! So you want the opposition to be healthy? Seems like team red should focus on the horrors of Kaine in part of their retort because a candidate dying in office is covered. The world will not end. What is ridiculous is the length team r is tying itself into knots being armchair internet doctors and diagnosing her with more diseases than my hypochondriac sister. It makes team r look stupid and as if there isn't anything of value with proof one can criticize. So walk around with the shoe on the other foot while team d starts a petition for Trump's health records. Play stupid games and win stupid prizes.

    And? Why can't team r screw up team d's day again? They're mean not smart doesn't answer why nothing is sticking. Team r better get real freaking smart about how to use this issue, because the public is getting tired of funding the theater over it. Sh@t or get off the pot. If team d is so incompetent/criminal with emails then how much more incompetent/colluding do you think folks see the other party who has yet to finish Clinton off over this scandal?

    Posting what the FBI ran with as for why they didn't follow up with it is not a defense. It is called discussion. Notice the question mark thingie at the end. That would indicate that I was ? Yer a bright one, yep you shure are, Sherlock. :rolleyes: stop drinking what the locals are sharing with you or make your sarcasm a hell of a lot more obvious, because I haven't changed my position on things and no amount of ridicule can prove anything different. SHO may have a hardon for Trump and want me to play nice with his authoritarian , but I am not forcing a candidate on anyone. Back on topic, I am curious as to upon what basis did they decide it was a joke.

    I'm not seeing any agency taking the argument that Trump is a coke user seriously. (Not any being pushed by google algorithms yet) They are repeatedly reporting it as, um, blowback for the armchair diagnosis of Clinton which is occurring.

    So, I'm curious, if you wanted to have a loving environment where your ideals for the society you wish to live in are embraced, would you be loving and tolerant of those who are actively working against your interests? Or would you speak up and educate those who are attempting to force you to pay for a society you do NOT want to live in? Would you attend your neighborhood association meetings if they were zoning you out and still forcing you to pay your member fees? Would you sit passively by in those meetings and allow the other members to work against your interests, especially as the become progressively toxic to you?

    I get your rant but piss poor attempt at proving your point. I was surprised it finally became noticed because he's done this behavior previously without much notice. I attributed the recognition to the diversity and number of people watching this time. As for my position about the agency, if you care at all to know, it was a short cut to a rebuttal I've seen regarding how the mic was being sabotaged. I was avoiding any further misperceptions of what you were already attempting to be dismissive of as my experience because, honestly, my initial reaction when I saw it after Orlando was someone possibly messing with his mic. I just have no idea how it could be done as it is right before he speaks and sooo pronounced. Anywho, to the rest of your rant, some are working to put in place candidates not supported by the forum and heaping tons of erroneous statements to which you have pushback occurring. We won't just all get along and Ron Paul is no longer a point of cohesiveness. In many ways I regret my support of RP which has led to what we have today. It is a kick in the teeth to realize what has been used to create the movement that is Trump. This "great ship America" is not at all within some cohesive vision that everyone agrees upon here and "they're pretty good people, many of them" is an appeal to ignore the ugliness which is driving the intensity of opinions being espoused. If you are so tired of the hate, take a break. I'm guessing it ain't gonna get better any time soon.

    That's hilarious. Perhaps it is a bs meter response? I'd probably be called out for the same tic. It is being dismissive when you know it would be impolite to interrupt but you REALLY want to tell someone off and call them on their bs. I've used the same ploy before to shut myself up. It is better than being a rude interruptive a$$, but still dismissive. I've not followed Clinton's behavior but a cursory look into it seems like she has a bit of a reputation for throwing shade and she had a few very overt moments during this debate that were gif worthy. Going by the video, seems like the video maker believes Clinton should have stuck to the narrative being created by her opponent and followed his lead rather than having been prepared and use the narrative she wanted by going back to the points she preferred to discuss. Trump had more than enough time to make his points, which really hurt his case in some of the responses where he really lost focus, and he was continually interrupting without any pushback. He initially felt the moderator was great until he realized not everyone was as thrilled with his performance and then he proceeded to cast blame. Maybe Trump should prepare for the next debate instead of priding himself on being unskilled and illiterate?

    Some of us see more than two hands. The media is not "driving people to vote for Trump" over the sniffing thing. It is pointedly being described that the criticism is a tit for tat. If Trump wants the votes still hanging in the wind, he should try to put some effort into not behaving like an entitled racist with a chip on his shoulder who thinks it's a woman's fault her husband cheats because his wife should have been better in bed. Has he come up with a better response to the Miss Housekeeping problem yet?

    Thank you!!! I wasn't the only one who noticed it before. I thought of running it down previously when I first became aware of it but was so busy with school stuff and just not willing to waste any time on it. Funny she thought it was a TelePrompTer thing. I know that rally after Orlando was my first vivid awareness, because I watched the total broadcast that day. It's bizarre and terribly distracting. After that, even the shortest snippets with a sniffling from him seem more pronounced because it is such an annoying behavior which cannot be unheard.

    :D misery loves company and I waste precious hours on shopping day with that stupid chip now. Bonus prize is having cashiers yell at you to put the chip in before the sale, no not yet stupid wait till after the sale is completed. Oh, your chip is for a debit card (Lowes only so far on this one) please swipe, don't use the chip reader. And that awful, awful pregnant pause of anticipation as you stare at a stranger cashier waiting for the damn thing to hurry up and do whatever it is going to do. I loathe the chip...and with all the people I shop for...awful, just awful.

    Trump is making it an even more amusing line of questioning as well by denying it occurred as he complains about his mic being too low to hear him while loud enough to project his sniffling that well according to him didn't happen. Perhaps Trump shouldn't gas light while high on coke?

    :D I wonder how long the reporter how to try to get that quote? I'm not surprised with your experience. Read a New York Post article the other day just glowing about Trumps signage and success in these parts of Ohio. It was so...unrealistic and absurd. It is as though they figure we must not be capable of seeing the article here. Not many signs up yet here, but about 4 or so to 1 with Clinton leading the sign wars. Frequent union mailers telling us to vote for Clinton, and the commercials, so many commercials, 99.9% for Clinton (all online Hulu and Sling)

    He's done it on at least two other occasions I can think of off the top of my head. I was surprised to finally see it get traction last night. After the Orlando speech, I told both ds and Dh about how obnoxious it was and how impossible it is to watch his speeches with all the snorting going on. I voiced my exasperation last night right away because I knew it was going to be a distraction, yet again. His mannerisms are bad enough, but add the snorfling/suction thing in (sniffing just really doesn't quite cover that freakish breathing) and ugh...

    For decidededs. Now, he did not do himself any favors, unlike the Dilbert commentary puts forth. He did not look prepared, interrupted ceaselessly, lied unrepentantly, and began the debate with a condescending tone that apparently wasn't lost on at least a few folks. Then he continued to just be Trump this morning. He had all night to think of a comeback regarding his Miss Housekeeping problem. He chose to double down. Bad move imo and he appears to want to go forward with the Gennifer Flowers angle. Yeah, that'll help. Without a TelePrompTer he's toast. (which is hilarious to me)

    BS...I noticed it right off the bat, WaPo live feed on FB. Mentioned it to Dh, then to a person on FB after the debate was over and before I even realized anyone else found it was annoying. He has done this before, too. First time I noticed was a speech right after Orlando. Then another one in NC that I saw a small portion of one day not too long ago. It's his thing, whatever his problem happens to be, but people in glass houses and all that jazz. The other two speeches were through CNN so can't pin it on one agency.

    I'm saying Dillbert is wrong, but it is hard to grasp that for those who are riding that train. He doesn't think Trump looked crazy. Alrighty there...He saw fit to try and still further the dialogue about Clinton's poor health and yet, not a peep about sniff, sniff from Trump? You don't like Slate then google Trump Weichselbaum and perhaps sniffles while yer at it. M'kay?

    “If your brother sins against you, go and show him his fault, just between the two of you. If he listens to you, you have won your brother over. But if he will not listen, take one or two others along so that ‘every matter may be established by the testimony of two or three witnesses.’ If he refuses to listen to them, tell it to the church; and if he refuses even to listen to the church, treat him as you would a pagan or a tax collector” (Matthew 18:15-17).

    Once again, FF doesn't know what he's talking about. Shunning isn't a sin. Christ even recommended it when necessary. The Bible is full of examples for the need to shun. I've never read anywhere that shunning is sinful. It's more made up Calvinist garbage. If they are shunning you, they are just doing what they are mad at me for. Just more hypocrisy.

    On the one hand, if we could bring Washington or Jefferson back from their graves they would be planning revolt. On the other hand, I don't think there are enough people in the country on our side for such a thing to even be wortwhile. And ultimately, I oppose revolution. I support secession, and if they decide to use force to keep us in, I don't think its wrong to retaliate.
