Arconax: I am going to vent a little.
I find it kind of pathetic to see many posters here endlessly complaining about the alleged rudeness of <Big Pawn>, while at the same time constantly insulting him ("Big Prevaricator", "Big Abortion", etc.). The hypocrisy of these posters is astounding.
The general tone here is disgusting. Shouldn't this be a page for meaningful discourse? There are some fine posters here, with lots of compelling viewpoints, but the discussions are marred by vicious comments.
As <Big Pawn> rightly suspected, I used to post here a little some years ago. I was never very active. I also struggled a bit more with my English (my first language is French), I write much better now. Anyways, coming back here I did not want to reawaken my old username, because of what happened to me. Let me explain:
I fell out with some posters here (some of them are gone now, it seems), and it got so bad that every time I posted something, they responded by insulting and humiliating me. So, I got sick of the whole thing. But now I wanted to come back. BUT: it's the same old story. For instance, the mean-spirited <perfidious>, it is clear to me after going back on these pages, and pages on other forums, that he likes to follow <Big Pawn> around, just to ungraciously insulting him every time he posts a comment. Pathetic behaviour.
I also appreciate <Big Pawn>'s efforts to clean up the cesspool that is Kibitzer's café by raising the cultural level. It is no big wonder that very few people bother to kibitz there among all the low-brow barroom talk.
I am a"lefty", and <Big Pawn> has some extreme right-wing ideas, but he is honest. And he is not afraid of being controversial. And I share some overall views. It is quite interesting how two so different kibitzers as <ColonelMortimer> and <Big Pawn> share some general outlooks, one from the far left and one from the far right. They both see through much of the horseshit that comes out of Washington. They both see that the USA is controlled by an invisible establishment in "cahoots" with the war-industrial complex, seeking to undermine Trump's presidency. No expert on politics in America, I liked Sanders, (but it seems he sold out eventually). Still, thank heavens (although I don't believe in heaven, I am more of an agnostic, but at least I respect religious people unlike the many vicious atheists that likes to mock religion on these pages) that Hillary Clinton didn't win. She is a war hawk and would have found a way to start war with the Russian federation, I think. She and Obama orchestrated the fascist coup in the Ukraine and the war in Libya throwing Europe into a major immigrant crisis. She is also corrupt to the bone.
But kibitzers like <saffuna>, <HeHateMe>, <al wazir> and others are completely ignorant of the machinations in Washington and the modus operandi of the globalist financial, Goldman-Sachs, Wall Street, Deutsche Bank elite that is really in charge..
<Colonel Mortimer> and <Big Pawn> both understand more of how the real world works, than most of you regular posters here. Have a nice day, everyone.
