hell im totally against illegal immigration.. but my wife was one 2 years ago lol
wow... the censorship on THIS site is silly... if someone has a genuine concern over a candidates personal life, he gets bombarded as spewing propaganda and lies.. even if all he is doing is quoting the candidates own family
I think the story of Obamas brother is relevant to Obamas character and Cubschick decided that it didnt suit what she wanted to see so she locked it..
I would just leave the site so you liberals can just sit around and agree with each other and pretend that Bush gave you that bad home loan and now your homeless and its his fault.
but i wont...
you want to close a thread based on a real news article about your candidate?
shows me exactly the type of personality that wants the fairness doctrine back...
grow up and have a backbone... dont just close the thread cause i showed you FACTS about your candidates character as he quotes Jesus and pretending to care "for the least among us" when he ignores his own
this is a election forum... what i posted was relevant to the candidates character IN MY OPINION. if you don't want opinions then relabel this forum the Liberal election forum...
this is why censorship is bad.. it gives the ability to silence opinions that don't agree with those in power (mods)

well the other one was just a attack on my post.. my was a legitimate concern and now other people who might share that concern "gcoll" and others will not have a option to voice what they think about it.
it was in my opinion a concern based on news articles and relavant to what the candidate JUST talked about in the saddleback forum so it wanst just an irrelevant anti-obama post
cubby thought it as blasphemy so she closed it...

well that post was a obvious blast to my post.
the fact is this is a forum. it is a place to debate (however seeminlgy trivial) perspectives.
I posted a thread that dealt with my perspective on Obamas hypocrisy.
i did not say you should close the thread.. i say you should never close any thread (unless it becomes hateful or other)... because if it is a silly topic then people wont respond and it will be ignored anyway.
no one was fighting, no one was being hateful... i put up my point.. people responded.. i responded... they responded... thats how this forum thing works
you chose to see to it that my perspective was not worth debating in a open discussion with news articles as references.
and that qualifies this.. as.... ____________________

i only brought up illigal immigration because of the rally the other night.
and i brought it up because those people were in some peoples opinion citing hate (hate towards the police)
and since you said it is ok to control some forms of hate speech i was wondering if these peoples right to assemble qualified to be shut down in your view
your right it did not get shut down...
im asking you.. in your opinion... does that assembly qualify as "hate speech" and under your censorship rules qualify to be shut down
IMHO where the assembly could veer into hate would be when the rally moves from protesting illegal immigration to attacking illegal immigrants. When it becomes about a people, it's an attack.
Here's another example that more or less fits: if someone has an anti-war rally and they protest the war in Iraq, that's a political demonstration. But when they start chanting US sucks and burn the flag, that's veering toward hate. I'd support the anti-war protest, but I would not support chanting US sucks or burning anyone's flag. The first is based on beliefs, the second is based on hatred of a people. See what I mean? What right would I have to hate a people? I don't want that "right".
