And that is how satire is done. Apparently. cool

ha i have been doing some as of late... and much of what i do has either a satirical edge (that is a little over the top) or with some cynicism...or is it cyanidism?


But most of the time the underlining belief is real... and it is somewhat enhanced by contrast. (like sunspots look DARK but they are really hella bright...but it is just contrasted but the rest of the sun's surface...and in this case I am clearly the rest of the SUN)

Many of us get that. Thanks for sharing horsefeathers. I've always loved your sense of humor.

The self-absorption of Only is completely out of line and even more pathetic than usual in this thread.

that is out of line i do not even know or care what you are suggesting or if you or Horsefeathers believes me or not. i simply do not use it as an excuse, but, sometimes when someone wants to throw it up in my face i throw a little back.


but if you can not see and admit you are privileged and you benefit from it then you can not be too hard on any whites that deny they benefit from theirs.

One issue I have with Horsefeathers story is that it has nothing to do with the privilege we all benefit from by living in a developed nation. It came off as deflection and denial as if that meant none of the benefits matter. The same logic is used by white people to deny their white privilege. And is it not valid.

And yet - on one of the recent drug OD threads you shared that your brother had passed that way. It wasn't on topic and yet many regular posters (some who almost never agree with you) went out of their way to post condolences without mentioning anything else.

Yet you have the nerve to not only ignore what was shared by HF but to jump all over it as a flawed argument. That is what I mean by out of line and pathetically selfish. Except when it is your life.

Brand new boogie without the hero.

ok, I am not perfect maybe I should not have shared that and YES I should have been more sympathetic.

That being said, I doubt in the example you gave. that my post was not made in order to in some way disprove or discredit the topic's point. Not that was Horsefeather's intent.

Right. My intention was to totally portray myself as a helpless victim and shit all over the thread. Because my posting history totally supports the position of diverting threads for the sake of pity-seeking. Nailed it. :lol:

As you say so often, it's ok. I forgive you. Even though you were too clever to fall for my ploy and just play along. Oh, you rascal! *shakes raised fist*

If I were exceptionally shitty and not just snarky, I would have pointed out on that thread that other people have dead brothers. I had a brother who died tragically. Truth. But that would make it Meeeee! It's all about Meeeee! Except sometimes it's really not.

And, well, that's pretty shitty.

For real, though, my intentions were nowhere near as dark as you seem to imagine. My point which I initially stated upfront was that no one can speak for anyone else's experiences. There may be worse overall places or people or things, but if you're in your own personal hell, it's kind of irrelevant. If a bear is chewing my leg off in Alaska, I'm not going to be of the frame of mind to be thankful it isn't a tiger in India. It is one of many opinions I've shared here that I had no clue would be so inflammatory or controversial.

if I said anything at all to suggest that I applogize it was not at all my intent.

Again did i say that?


As you say so often, it's ok. I forgive you.

Sweet! thanks!

:Ducks:


If I were exceptionally shitty and not just snarky,

you can be both!


I would have pointed out on that thread that other people have dead brothers.

Yup and I do not think i ever used that to do anything other than to avoid the (which has happened) claim that I do not care because it never happened to me. *as it has for insurance...



I had a brother who died tragically.

I am sorry for your loss... for me one of the hardest things is sometimes I want to call him to ask him something and remember...


Truth. But that would make it Meeeeeeeee! It's all about Meeeee!

ok


Except sometimes it's really not.


Huh okay

And, well, that's pretty shitty. purplepoppy heart

And as I said many of us have had very hard things happen to us... all over the world. But in balance I can not see how anyone well informed would say we do not have it better off here in a developed country. I think some of the push back is blindness...just as many white people do not see their privilege.

if the idea that you are better off in a developed country as opposed to many other places is so offensive or inflammatory then you are free to not take part. And how can it be controversial? Or is it PC madness run amuck?


"how can you say your country is better than another?" even asking that shows how blind one is.

WTH? - the last "breakdown quote". She was not saying I was shitty. ARRRGGGH.

I am not saying you shouldn't have told us about your brother. I am saying look at the difference when you did and everyone gave you love when something personal was revealed. The way you ignored and then went after Horsefeathers comment to "prove" your point, ugh.

Brand new boogie without the hero.

Right? I was shocked when Only jumped on that to continue to sell the pandering mindset of his thread.

What? Oh was she? Well I do not agree with her. I do agree with your comparison but It was not all that bad.

I do not think I went after her I think I added the prospective of abuse happens all over world so that is not a well made counter argument.

so you are not going to answer if living in a modern. developed country is or is not better than living in an undeveloped country?

Is this being attributed to me? Because if so, I'm again being credited/blamed for something I never said.
