I could Kick Myself
I am writing a short blog to do a little housekeeping and apologize for falling prey to troll bait yesterday. I was trying to multitask and posted several things that could be misconstrued, and I will follow up on that later. I even posted “so your labeling me a socialist (I know the definition) don't phase me” when I should have used the word faze instead of phase.
Perry Mason or whatever the troll decides to call himself today, accomplished his mission of posting his troll bait ,as he has done many times before, much to the displeasure of VA forum. They banned the troll several times.He never took the hint that it just might be his fault ,so he wrote his own blog to disparage the VA forum but he couldn’t stay off the forum he so despised.He kept logging on using a different alias but posting the same garbage, thinking no one would be the wiser. I alerted the VA a couple of times myself, as well as others,of his unwelcome presence. That’s background on what I’m dealing with.The poster has an outdated website and I’ll give you link if you what to know what’s he really like.
Let me make it perfectly clear for those of you who do not know me; I don’t think people are racists just because they believe in rule- of- law and think any form of amnesty is wrong. Now,the poster in question is obsessed with the issue and deserves to be called a racist because of his past and present comments. I do think people are naïve if they think attrition will work after many years of failure. I’m moving on from the immigration battles of 2007 because this time it’s different because the GOP knows it’s in their interest(if they want to continue to win national elections) to be part of the solution. Hate radio rhetoric will not win the day anymore.
I said it was going to short and sweet and I would appreciate an email or a post if and when I have have another weak moment. I can't mock the ridiculous arguments that substitute for a serious debate if I engage in the silliness. I went a long time without succumbing to troll bait; I failed yesterday and now I know it’s still a work in progress. I should have taken the advice I have given to others “ there’s only one way to deal with a troll ….ignore.”
Have a good day
