A dieing leftist messageboard
Posted by Sam Colt (-131) 5 years ago
This message board would be lit up with activity the morning after the biggest election upset in history if the MilesCity.com Webmaster wasn't a speech censuring leftist. Instead I can hear the crickets chirping, that's how many democraps are left in Miles City.

PS. I know you read this. http://cdn.milescity.com/images/v2/forums/emoticons/lol.gif

I agree with you Sam, this webmaster is a biased personality, and is trigger happy with his keyboard.

The tolerance of the left is always on display here at milescity.commie

For the first time in my life, I am genuinely ashamed of being a citizen of this country. For the first time in my life, I am genuinely afraid of what the racist, misogynist, hate-mongers are going to do to me and people of color, the poor, the handicapped, anyone who isn't an angry white male. I am sick to my heart.

Go ahead and gloat boys. You won. You have destroyed America as the land of hope and freedom.

Enjoy it.

That's pretty special coming from a man not smart enough to correctly embed an emoticon into his post.

Really? Well, isn't that rich. I don't think you know me very well. I try to be analytical. I'm more moderate, middle-of-the-road, than anything.

This *public* discussion forum is not "leftist". I don't control what people post on here. Visitors, like yourself, post your own views and opinions. If the posts are more left than right, then it's just because the right is not participating enough. I've stated this before.

This messageboard has proven time and time again that it is just a microcosm of the reason why Trump won and Mrs. Clinton lost. Neither you, the Democrat Party, nor Mrs. Clinton should be so condescending toward people just because their beliefs are different than yours. When you tell people that they are morons, racists, idiots, or a basket of Deplorables because they believe what a candidate other than yourself says or does; don't you think there is going to be a major push to vote against you? Why do Democrats THINK they know what is good for everyone else? Healthcare was forced down our throats. Healthcare costs have skyrocketed. Why? Because when you make it mandatory for something to be purchased, the people who sell that product can name their price because you MUST purchase it. You enabled the insurance industry to become the same thing you rail against the banking community for being. Obama pandered to the UMWA in 2008 and won huge in West Virginia, then turned around and declared war on the coal industry. Mrs. Clinton had the same view as Obama. Why do you think the major coal producing areas voted for Trump. That happens when a Party philosophy determines that people who make good money doing their job should be forced out of work because coal is BAD and renewable resources are what is best for everyone. What happened was the Democrat Party and Mrs. Clinton pissed off a large portion of what is left of the middle class, the people living in rural America, people who are just scraping by, and even alienated some from their own Party. In Pennsylvania alone, over 10,000 Democrats switched Party affiliation during the last year. That is a State that normally is carried by the Democrats. Maybe what people need to do is climb down from their moral, intellectual, philosophical, and condescending high horse; and re-evaluate what makes you think YOU know what is better for well over half of the country. BTW, who did I vote for? No one, I didn't even register because of the four candidates, none of them were worth casting a vote for.

If you have a mortgage loan on your home you are required (by the bank) to have homeowners insurance. If you have a mortgage and your home is in the flood plain, you are similarly required to carry flood insurance.

The reason this shouldn't be the problem you think it is, is because there are multiple companies providing the insurance coverage. It is one of those "free markets" that Republicans like to extol the virtues of. Competition in the marketplace should keep prices in check.

I've said it here before but I'll repeat it for you. The cost of healthcare (and health insurance) was going up significantly BEFORE the ACA. The whole reason we got the ACA was because of those rising costs.

I will also add that the ACA requires insurance companies to pay 80% of the money they receive for premiums on claims. If they don't have enough claims they are required to refund premium money to the insured.

I haven't had an individual policy since the ACA was enacted (I'm on employer-sponsored group insurance) but I have a friend who buys insurance on the individual market and he has received 1 or 2 refunds from his medical insurance since the ACA took effect. By the way, that guy HATES Obama and "Obamacare".

Yeah, I didn't participate. I didn't want the participation trophy (or the sticker that all those who didn't get one were throwing a hissy fit about). I feel no need to vote in elections any longer. It didn't matter who was announced the winner. On Wednesday morning, the sun was still going to come up and I was still going to put my pants on one leg at a time. Keep up with the condescension....it looks good on y'all.

Many people have died or suffered for our right to vote. Even if you didn't feel like voting for any of the presidential candidates, there were many important down-ballot elections.

There is always a lot of talk about voter fraud or that elections are rigged. In my own opinion, laziness is a far bigger problem.

Rob, I certainly didn't intend to be condescending with my replies. I'm sorry if you took it that way.

For a man who should be pleased to have a Republican back in the White House you seem rather on edge. What's up?

BS Gunner. The Tea party's main platform is protectionism rather than globalism. In that respect, the tea party "not the repubs or democrats" won this election.

Bob Said,
Many people have died or suffered for our right to vote.


The "Greatest Generation" was pretty much the end of that. Everything that has occurred after WWII has been has been driven to feed the machine. Victims are returning maimed and wounded with less support than Vietnam era had. The VA healthcare system in in shambles.

The existing Denver VA is an understaffed, filthy mess. The new replacement being built in Aurora CO. is 1.7 Billion over budget and will never be completed. The minute I went on Social Security, I dumped the VA faster than they abandoned me when I came home. It is estimated that 75 to 80% of homeless in Denver are Veterans. We have a lot of homeless. Not everyone that enters the military are heroes. Some perform heroic acts. Some are lucky and come out unscathed, physically or emotionally but all have been put in harms way for all the wrong reasons.

Is the orange man going to change the situation. Sword rattling has already started between China and Russia and amerika. It's hard to tell really. We are out of allies. We are squandering our natural resources at an alarming rate and giving birth like the 1950's Chinese. There is money to be made in China. Little Don likes other peoples money, casinos and gambling. It is a perfect setup for the new administration.

It is with trepidation that I look forward to the next four years. Oh, hopeless and helpless as well..

So exactly what is your motivation for repeatedly bumping a thread -- one with a ridiculously misspelled title no less, posted by someone using a fake name (like you), who did little other than troll the site while here, and during the process felt the need to call me a "dipshit"?

What's the end game? What are you hoping to accomplish?

I find it fairly amusing that a major characteristic of you extreme right wingers is that you use fake names to hide your identities and won't admit to who you are -- which is not normal, especially if you have any integrity in your beliefs -- and then you frequently attempt to disrupt or mock opposing discussion without offering any intelligent response.

You know, if you don't like this site -- don't use it. Or better off, go use your alt-right haven at MilesCityHome.com:

http://web.archive.org/we...yhome.com/.

Oh wait. That one actually is a "A dead right messageboard", eh? ;(

Yeah, on occasion I wonder about the anonymity thing myself. It could be that if your sole goal is to troll, it makes some small degree of sense. But I somehow think it also could have something to do with mindset / world vision. Hiding behind masks and screen names could provide a sense of safety and security to those who are driven by a fear-based view of life, the universe & everything.

Two of the most articulate and literate conservatives, who ever posted here, did so using their real names. I know for a fact that neither leftist death squads nor lizard overlords targeted them for being so bold. And they were very heavily engaged in the debates / arguments / p*ssing matches we had. Ah . . . back in the good old days when articulate and literate conservatives used to spend time here. I do miss those days.

Which two were those in your opinion? Rick and Richard come to mind - but Richard switched teams, and I'm not sure what happened to Rick.

Yes, Rick and Richard were the two I was referring to. There was that Kyle person for awhile, he had a pair and didn't post anonymously, though he wasn't on the same intellectual level as Rick and Richard, but he was heads and tails above today's anonymous crew.

As a side note, anymore I pretty much refuse to engage with those who go the anonymous / plumless route. Life is too short for that : -)

Yes, I have those two in mind, as well.

We all know what happened to Richard. I hope in their deepest hearts that someday Richard's siblings will forgive us.

As for Rick, the last time I engaged him on meaningful debate, i.e., what would you have the Republicans do in lieu of what we have? And he replied, "I don't know, I just want less government."

At which in time I believe self-awareness set in, that he could not be a turd, and he was fighting a losing argument, Rick being a neocon and all.

I have nothing against Hal, I respect quite a few of his posts. I have nothing for certain against Gunnar either. As for the rest of the dial-tones I really have nothing to hide. If you actually live in Miles City I am not hard to find. As for my so called alias. I am not ashamed to post with my business name as I am proud of it. I think of it as advertising. I actually talked to the webmaster about advertising here and he told me that I couldn't without a Facebook page. So bastardize me if you will because I could care less.

Gunnar, I also sometimes feel a twinge of guilt for the way we corrupted Richard, but he's a good man and he earned / deserves it ; -)

And, as much as I regret saying it, I miss the Neocons. The world is really screwed up right now because of Neocons and Neoliberals, but given what we're working with now - they don't seem all that bad.

A transgender acronym for Assigned-Female-At-Birth.

I am a transman but an AFAB.
