My Anonymous Troll Called Me Schizophrenic

  Each time I mention my special relationship with God, my resident troll feels obligated to react negatively.  The most recent was “It is notable that Blogger relies on schizophrenia for decision making.”  I know where he is coming from.

Back in college, I lost my religion for a period.  But one day, my Jewish roommate Dan, came back to our room declaring Jesus had come to him in the park.  Jesus had outlined what he hoped Dan would do with his life and Dan had written it all out.

I freaked.  Convinced Dan was psychotic, I called his parents.  To my shock, they disowned him. 

However, it was not long before I realized something awesome had happened to my best friend.  He had quickly forgiven me.  He had quickly forgiven his parents.  And he was the kindest, and most decent person I ever came to know.

Dan remained my closest friend until he passed away at age 92 a few weeks ago.  Although he never made me feel guilty, I always had a hard time forgiving myself.

So, later when God made Himself real to me, I had to apologize to Dan all over and then of course I had to apologize to my Heavenly Father for my unbelief.

That doesn't sound like conservative family values?
Dan, was fortunate to find real Jesus not Republican Imposter.

Schizophrenics can be kind and decent.

Goofus, someday I hope you discover that leftist political ideology is not a religion.

I see little kindness, humanity, empathy , or desire for understanding from Evangelicals, or conservative voices. Here on this blog ideology is nearly alway has a higher priority than common good.

It would be nice to start ignoring the Goofus troll again. It's like debating an 8 year old who has no memory. At times it is hard to tell if it is Goofus Liberal POV or DRex, buy neither deserve a rebuttal. Their hatred for those who are not Socialist Democrats is just not worthy of anyone's time.

Thanks for spending your time with that vapid rebuttal.

Evangelicals donate more food, money, and time to the needy all over the world than all other groups combined. Funny how liberal socialist sheep nonymouse coward doesn't call out Arab Muslims over their humanity, empathy or desire for "understanding" (whatever that means). Stoning women, forcing women to cover themselves, killing gays and Christians, and inbreeding seem accepted by the noneymouse coward, yet he, like all liberal sheep, are fixated on Christianity despite their inability to define how said Christians are so bad. Yes, the 8 year old analogy is excellent Sark - they wobble around babbling the last phrase they heard a few minutes before and do it constantly. LOL!!!!

Blogger,

I'd like to draw a parallel here to the above posts and how noneymouse coward seeks certain groups to attack and denigrate based on no evidence. High Country Press just proudly published an article about an illegal alien female who received the "first" Roan Scholarship given to an Avery High Graduate by ETU. Liberal sheep like Noneymouse Coward (this includes the extremist High Country Press Staff) hail this as a major accomplishment in their race to degrade America and her citizens. This illegal alien just took a scholarship that an American student could've used. Not a peep about that. The fact that the illegal alien in question was given the scholarship because she was an illegal alien female, and not because she outcompeted American citizen children is suspiciously left out of the story (typical tactic of the left). Noneymouse coward will scream long and hard that conservatives don't have empathy or "understanding" (whatever that is), yet is unwilling to empathize with American citizen children passed over by an undeserving criminal who was given something without earning it due to political correctness and a desire by communists to reward mediocrity. Liberal extremists such as noneymouse coward and the High Country Press Staff believe illegally traveling to the U.S. from the Mexican State of Gurerrero is somehow noteworthy enough to add "flavor" to a success story. They leave out the lawbreaking and call it "empathy." All the while American white children continue to be passed over for scholarships and student benefits while substandard minority students are richly rewarded. This must be the "common good" that noneymouse coward speaks about.

Common good is a collectivist tenant espoused by mass killers like Stalin, Hitler, Mao Tse Tung, and Ulysses S. Grant. Yet not a peep by noneymouse coward who claims to have empathy!! Amazing hypocrisy.

Please point out the sentence above showing your kindness, empathy, humanity or desire for understanding?

USS Rodger Young said...

I see you want a short sentence to discuss. Dyslexia kicking in again my confused friend? Is this because you're obviously unable to digest the larger thought promulgated (means to bring forth or identify)by the entire body of work? LOL!!! Typical drug riddled liberal - unable to engage in anything more than hate discourse.

I see your last post is also confirming my original comment.

USS Rodger Young said...

Anyone notice how the noneymouse coward is desperately trying to draw attention away from my post above which details the extremist left choosing illegal aliens over Watauga County schoolchildren? I sure did. As usual, I have to bring the argument back to the original issue. By noneymouse cowards reluctance in addressing the issue, dyslexia aside, it supports my oft used theory that said liberal socialist sheep choose illegal aliens over American citizens whenever possible. In fact they are getting even more bold in doing so as the liberal extremist high country press (notice lower case)denotes over their article that fawns over an illegal alien getting money over American children.

Tell us noneymouse coward, which American Citizen children in Avery County do you hate so much? All of them maybe?

LOL. Stings don't it.

I can only speak for myself but I congratulate Rubi Estrada Romero on her accomplishment and hard work. Rubi will do great things for her community and country, America. Rubi was competing against some of the brightest 100 students in 60 different High Schools from 27 counties. Rubi is a person of high character this country needs as citizens.
Why would your fellow Conservatives condone your hate mongering speech toward this outstanding young woman?

USS Rodger Young said...

noneymouse coward aka-puppy wetter,

So you choose Rubi Estada, an illegal alien, over American schoolchildren who were subverted from attaining this scholarship by a criminal? This speaks volumes about the liberal socialist mindset. And you wonder why you LOST the last election to the likes of Donald Trump? Rubi Estrada, the illegal alien, competed against no one except for female, Hispanic illegal aliens in a race for the headline. Rubi is not a person of high character because the is an illegal alien who prevented American citizen children from educational opportunities. Why would you and your fellow liberal socialist sheep condone this type of activity against outstanding young American citizen schoolchildren? Bigoted thoughts beget bigoted behavior.

This is exactly like the illegal alien gang members who assaulted Watauga County Schoolchildren a few years back. Not a peep from the liberal left extremists (you) who choose violent gang members over Watauga County Students.

This is much in line with the violent Islamic Extremists you support over peaceful Christians. You know, the ones who stone women to death, cut the genetalia of young girls in Detroit, force women to cover themselves, hunt and kill gays, and kill Americans by the dozens!! Tell me, why would your fellow liberal socialists condone your hate mongering speech which supports these animals?

Then we have the violence at political protests/rallies that liberals are silent on. Why do you and fellow liberals condone these hate acts aimed at peacefully assembling conservatives?

The Rubi Estrada fiasco is but one example of the larger cancer known as liberalism. Choosing illegal aliens with no right to be here over natural born citizens bespeaks of a breakdown in the rule of law in a society based upon laws. Pretty sad.

Blogger, Watauga Republicans officials , local Evangelical ministers

Do you believe these racist shameful personal attacks against an outstanding 17 year old local Latino student are appropriate?

Let's see if anyone comes to her defense, other than this Liberal ?

This level of unnecessary meanness should not be political.

guy faulkes said...

There is little doubt that the young lady in question is a outstanding student. This does not invalidate the point RY is making about illegal aliens taking things from citizens, even if they would deserve them if they were citizens.

The question is whether the young lady is legal or not. If she is she certainly deserves an apology. If she is not, RY has a valid point.

Let understand, you're saying, Rubi Estrada Romero, who arrived in the USA at the age of 7, learned English, excelled in the Avery County public schools system to become one of the top students in sixty different public High Schools in three states. The Conservative ideology would have this bright young girl, discriminated against for the rest of her life and denied an opportunity she has earned and deserves? This is the America Conservatives want?

USS Rodger Young said...

Noneymouse coward,

Let's understand what your saying: the illegal alien illegally crossed the border with illegal alien parents at a young age; brought the common core down while learning English; and sucked off the public school system and public services to become yet another illegal alien who, because of illegal alien status, was gifted a scholarship over American children at sixty different public high schools in 3 states. The liberal ideology would have all bright young American citizen boys and girls be placed in 2nd place behind illegal aliens for the rest of their lives and denied the opportunity that American citizens deserve over all illegal aliens every single time. Is this the America that liberal socialist sheep want? Judging by what is happening here in America, right here in the high country, the answer is YES.

noneymouse coward (notice lower case), when exactly did you begin choosing illegal aliens over American citizens? Do you remember the exact date this occurred or is it lost in the dense fog of liberal thought? LOL!!! The virulence of liberal inspired communism increases each year to the point they publicly seek out non citizens for recognition. Even hard core communists like Stalin, Lenin and Marx weren't this radical.

Stings don't it pardner.

PS - Your plea for help went unanswered. Again, THIS is why you lost the last election. Enjoy Trump - Macts Niches Bitches.

Goofus, if she is illegal, she is illegal. All she has to do is take the steps to become a citizen. Would you rather she remain a criminal?

"All she has to do is take the steps to become a citizen."

That comment shows how totally ignorant you are of current immigration law. Use your Google to educate yourself as you will believe nothing I post. Only 25,000 immigrants from Mexico have a legal path to citizenship per year. The line is 40 years long. This young lady is legal under President Obama's EO giving young "Dreamers " legal status and protection from deportation and access to education like fellow classmates.

Whitey said...

Anon, what Guy told you was the LAW.

You're the one who is ignorant. You are the one who wants to break the law so you can "feel good" about your "humanity" or some such crap.

If her parents brought her here illegally then the onus is on them, but she is still illegally here.

Obama can't write laws, and we have laws about immigration.

If you don't like the law then change the law.

And while you are bleating about "only 25,000 immigrants from Mexico" a year having a legal path to citizenship what about the rest of the world? Does she have more rights than someone from India or the Ukraine who wants to become a citizen and is doing so legally?

Our entire immigration system needs to be rewritten to make immigration based on ability and merit, not some soft hearted, soft headed bleeding heart crap.

We have over 90 million able bodied Americans who have given up on working, which is greater than the population of Germany. The excuse of "we need them for the workforce" doesn't hold water.

You're helping the corporations bring in cheap, nearly slave labor to help their bottom line by cutting wages and placing the social costs of illegals healthcare, education and welfare costs directly on the back of working Americans.

So shut up, sit down and grow a brain.

Anonymous said...

Whitey

That 90 million includes children, those in retirement, students seeking higher education, the disabled and stay at home parents.
America is aging as baby boomers are now retirement age driving the percentage up.
You right the immigration policy does need to be rewritten but Republicans continues to block any effort to do so. We get the broken status quo we've had for near 3-4 decades.
Republicans are supporting HB-2 allowing workers here for 9 months to work high end resorts like the one owned by Trump.
The tone of your post is that of most Republicans, arrogant and authoritarian.

Only 25,000. I'd like to see it 0, as would most of America. The legal entry line should be 100 years long. We don't need anymore third world, uneducated, disease ridden, welfare using, job taking, jail filling, hospital filling illegal aliens who outcompete American schoolchildren for scholarships based on race, ethnicity, and legal status and not on merit. This lady is not ever "legal" despite obummers executive order - she's an illegal alien. Americans know and understand that. An executive order is not a "law" but a unilateral action to subvert well established immigration laws that once prevented such outrageous events as this. The Avery County student that doesn't get a full ride to ETSU, what would you say to him/her? Maybe something like, "sorry pal, you've had too much white privilege in your cushy life, and we're giving the scholarship to an illegal alien criminal because we value law breakers over you and your ilk." Is that what you would say?

Again, I ask when exactly you reached the point in your life that you began choosing illegal aliens over American citizens? Did it happen all at once, or did it take an extended liberal indoctrination to do it? Just curious. The same people who choose illegal aliens over American citizens are the same ones who spit on soldiers returning from Vietnam and fail to denounce fellow Democrats who shoot Congressmen playing softball. And you claim kindness and empathy as part of the liberal philosophy? Really?? Your actions don't support that.

I know you hate the drubbing you just received, but perhaps I will be able to clear some of that fog and rubble from your small mind so you can truly become tolerant, kind, and empathetic - like peaceful conservatives and Christians.

America is a free country, we don't get to personally dictate our personal desires to society. If that were the case my problem would be trying to find a country you could be deported to so we could have more room for fine human beings like Rubi and her wonderful family.
