Click the fucking link. Its the picture used with the article - NOT my picture...Capish?
BigJohn wrote:Yes, I did understand your statement.

BigJohn wrote:You are assuming some sort of obligation to balance one's posts based on other people's political affiliation.
BigJohn wrote:I am not the editorial department of a newspaper. I am a poster reacting to various influence, one of which is mood, how busy I am (quite) and random desires. There are many things written on the Flob that I disagree with but ignore, for one reason or another.
BigJohn wrote:TC's pic of black clad anarchists calling them OWS was absurd. I merely pointed that out.
BigJohn wrote:Your reaction to my statement, with the assumption that I need to balance it by participating in other threads, is also absurd.

BigJohn wrote:But I was not talking or even thinking about the Tea Party. Can you understand that point? Either way, I don't care.
BigJohn wrote:I was simply making a small but important point about the way TM's post came across. Yes, I clicked the link TM and read the article.
BigJohn wrote:TM: if you want to post about the Tea Party, go ahead. I was not, so please don't try to contextualize me on that one. Once again, I have rarely commented on them, so don't try to make me part of your context or endless right versus left warfare on the flob.
