Thread Name: BS: Occupy Wall Street; The 99%
Subject: RE: BS: Occupy Wall Street; The 99%
I'm sorry, Jack, but this has to be said. Then, no more on the subject of GfS from me. I, too, want to get back to the subject at hand because there is a lot going on and a lot to talk about


Ake, be fair.

For the past couple of years and over a number of threads, GfS has made a practice of taking the contrarian view, no matter what the subject, to the point where he or she contradicts what they have said in previous threads—and sometimes on different posts on the same thread.

While doing this, GfS is rude and often foul-mouthed (foul-keyboarded?), insulting the intelligence of anyone who disagrees with anything in his/her rambling rants. Anyone who has to use the sort of language GfS uses is verging on the contemptible and is responsible for the degeneration of any kind of political debate these days. He/she refers to Hilary Clinton as "Hitlery" and President Obama as "O-blab-o" and repeated calls him a "liar" and "stupid," WITHOUT saying anything specific about what lies he allegedly told, or examples of his "stupidity" (a one-time lecturer at an Ivy League university and editor of a highly respected law review).

He calls Bobert, me, and others "loony liberals" and other such ill-defined epithets without really knowing anything about our political positions other than that we are not pro-Right Wing. In fact, he/she argues FOR the Right Wing, while at the same time saying that both the Republican and Democratic Parties are corrupt—which IS true, and which Bobert, me, and others have already said repeatedly. GfS has not, at any time, delineated or indicated by implication ANY cohesive political position, or recommended any course of political action that he/she thinks people should follow.

In short, GfS is a blowviator. He/she's on these threads to stir things up, divert the thread from its subject (which he keeps accusing me of doing whenever I challenge something he/she says). GfS is not interested in the subject. ANY subject. His/her whole reason for posting on these threads is primarily to disrupt the discussion, and for ego gratification and self-aggrandizement.

GfS is a TROLL.

Thus I have decided that GfS is a lost cause and I will not waste any more time and verbiage on him/her. And I advise others to do the same.
