source: http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/opinion/commentary/ct-perspec-melania-taylor-swift-politics-0901-story.html

 when people ask me what I do, I tend to brace myself a bit, battening down the proverbial mental hatches. “Oh, I’m a writer,” I’ll say cheerily, warily scanning my new friend’s eyes, especially if that person is my doctor, an Uber driver, a hairdresser, or someone else who happens to temporarily hold my life in his or her hands.

“What’s that? What do I write about? Oh ...” — here’s the part where I scan the room for an escape hatch and inevitably fail. “I write about politics,” I say.

Almost instantly, what was previously a sanguine discussion usually escalates into a passionate yelling match, complete with high-octane scoffing, sullen dirt-kicking, occasional hair-pulling, and that classic and excruciatingly painful torture method older brothers use where they punch you in the exact same place on your upper arm over and over. (Mine told me it was “a bravery test.”)

Next, we inevitably take off in different directions, never to speak again, with the exception of occasionally leaving each other passive-aggressive comments with purposely confusing emojis on our public Instagram accounts.

Actually, that never happens. I don’t even have an operable Instagram account!

The most common response, you’ll be pleased to learn, is actually rueful laughter: “Politics? Well, you certainly have a lot to write about! I bet it’s never boring!” The first sentence is correct: There is absolutely no shortage of political material to write upon, given that our culture seems to be slowly morphing into a disturbing default mode of “All Politics, All The Time.”

The second assumption, however — “I bet it’s never boring!” — is sadly amiss. This is because our culture’s encroaching default mode of “All Politics, All The Time” is almost exhaustingly boring. It is cringeworthy. It is tedious. It could signal the slow death of fun as we know it.

Witness the odd metamorphosis of Teen Vogue, a once-innocent delivery vehicle for capitalism’s more frivolous byproducts, including lipstick, overpriced high heels — a species of shoe that is now considered highly problematic and distressing, as we’ll discuss below — and occasional helpful assurances that No, For Heaven’s Sake, You Do Not Look Fat In Your Dress, You’re Twelve.

  Hi Frederick.  I like your second screen name.

How many times is it that you have vowed to never post again? 
I see you have learned nothing.  You are still making stupid comments that are false.

It's really interesting to me that Ravena1 creates an account for the sole purpose of spamming the forum with nonsense the same way that Frederick does.  A person who is new to this site has no reason to come to this forum first.  This is a gay torrent site.

Frederick has admitted over and over that he doesn't give a damn about the rules of a website.  He creates multiple accounts.  I assume he does this to respond to himself since most people ignore his nonsensical rhetoric but I'm sure he has lots of reasons that I couldn't even imagine.

Not only is your post completely off topic for this group.. it is also full of lies and libel. 
#1  I don't know who Ravena1 is, nor am I sure about his ideology yet.  So far he seems to be acting as a reporter of the news.  I think his posts are too long, but then again.. I have problems with my vision, so I have never been a fan of reading a lot.  (I used to be legally blind before LASIK). 
#2  If you don't think I come to this site for gay porn.. you are quite mistaken.  Between this account and an account that got zapped 4 years ago because of a war I had with someone whose name has not fouled the forums in over 2 years.. I have transferred close to 90 Terabytes.  I can't even remember the name of my old account.   
#3  I don't appreciate your LIE that I ever had multiple accounts.   That doesn't even make sense for me, because my ratios have always been extremely high.   At one point, a very long time ago, I was accused of the OPPOSITE of having mulitple accounts which was sharing an account.  That was because I used to use a proxy on one computer but not on another, while logged in on both computers. .making my account show up with 2 different IP addresses.  I think their software now sees through fake proxy addresses, so that mistake no longer occurs.
#4 Your next lie is that you claim I have said I don't care about the rules.  I never said that.   I have pointed out that people such as yourself are the biggest rule breakers BY FAR. 
#5  You have repeatedly vowed to boycott the forum, and never respond to my messages, and tried to unseat the moderator.  And yet you never learn your lesson.  You are like a one person North Korea. 

I do have a secret reason for wanting you to post messages.  Your messages make me look even better!  Thanks!   I'm surprised that some moonbat doesn't accuse you of being me... and that your objective is to make me look great with your baseless, asinine comments.

What rule did I break?

and tried to unseat the moderator. 

When did I do that?

I've been called a lot of things......but that's a new one. LOL

I am sure that someone else has a better memory than you do.   Apparently my advice to you is falling upon deaf ears and blind eyes.   Good luck!

Why would Fred create a new account when he has more than enough ratio not to worry?     

Ravena1 has to forum spam because of his low ratio.

Also, we have very good dupe account detection software and it's not triggered for either.

As far as I'm aware Adam has the worst reputation out of all the members in the entire forum... I don't think he has any cred whatsoever. He's kind of like Hillary saying she'll run again. Nobody cares.

The same reason he creates multiple Facebook accounts.  He knows his time here is limited.  He will be banned sooner or later and he needs a backup account for when that happens.

Who are you referring to?   I was looking at this list, and I can't figure out who you think is begging to be shoved into a big fat RED vagina.

This video could apply to North Korea or South Korea if Kim Dung Poo doesn't wise up fast.
This video could also be NYC or Los Angeles if Hillary was to Run Again and win.

I'm referring to you.  You tell us all the time how you break the rules of websites and get yourself banned so then you have to create multiple accounts.

As far as my reputation.....who cares?  You two are the only people who even use that function. It means nothing.  lol 

I'm not the one who gets thumbs down on 90% of my posts.  That honor goes to Frederick and Mhorndisk.

EDIT: Adam, how come you don't post topics? Don't you have anything to say? Nope. You don't have anything to say or care about. You should be more proactive so we can discuss what you believe. You just say "Me no likey. Me no likey. Me no likey." But you have nothing to actually say. You have no pro-democrat news to give. You have nothing. You have no pro-Obama news. You have no pro-liberal information. You just have nothing.

You got two thumbs down and no thumbs up for that one... So. Thumbs downing, yes we have lots of them. The problem is they aren't followed by an actual statement as to WHY you disagree. It's just hundreds of thumbs down because you think we're your enemy. If you actually explained why you thumbs downed something, it would be called "engaging." You don't have an interest in that. You just want to disagree with anything a person says no matter what it is.

So I thumbs downed you for this, for that reason. That is the reason WHY I did it. You guys cry all day when you are total hypocrites. If you want to give a thumbs down, say why. Don't just thumbs down everything a person says no matter what it is. There has to be SOMETHING we agree on. But you guys don't care about that. You just are stead-fast in your ridiculous "mission." It's boring and totally missionary style. You offer nothing to the table for discussion.

I already told you it's not him, unless he's found out a way to defeat our dupe account software.   We even prefer to have false positives that are manually reviewed than letting them slip by.   


You don't care about the REPUTATION, but you care about APPROVAL.    That makes no sense.   

Despite the fact that I earned my 10k positive approval only to have you leftists ruin it because you guys manipulated the system, you think it has value.     I had a quite high, the highest in fact, reputation before it was manipulated.

Aadam101 doesn't care about reality.  He's a moonbat who knows that if they keep repeating things and getting away with it, then their lies and accusations become the virtual truth.  In other words, if they throw enough shit against a wall, some of it will stick.  He won't stop.  Why should he?  In his warped mind, nobody can stop him. 
Some things keep coming back.. and are incurable.. such as Hillary, hemorrhoids, cancer, Aadam101, herpes, and floating poop.

It's not meaningless, because people who don't know you are going to wonder why you have such a low reputation. When you guys were throwing around all those thumbs downs it meant something. You asked in another forum why I had a green bar because YOU and others were thumbsing down. NOW it doesn't matter huh? You guys live in La La Land.

 police  Stop publicly accusing others of having dupe accounts.   

If you HONESTLY think this is happening, then report it on the helpdesk and let the dupe account staff deal with it.  police
