      Or that some of us view both the major parties as self-serving corrupt organizations that should not be trusted any more than black market organ salespeople.

        How is this mindset different from racism or any other bigoted isms?

        This is not a respect your elders post. Nor a get off my lawn.

        Young whipper snappers....

        It is normal for many, when young to think the old are old fashioned and out of touch. Sometimes they/we are. Ghost is drawing down on anyone older than him. That's a harsh on one's self way to go through life. If this is his real life personna he's alienating himself from a wealth of learning from others. Or he's a fake. Worse yet, a disillusioned bitter boot licker in IRL.
        You are parsing one post, which removes all context. His statement is from the snowflake mindset. This mindset is similar to get off my lawn. At its core it is the “shut up people your age just don’t get it” some use when their ideas are challenged. All age groups use it at some point, that’s why it isn’t special or different.

        It’s no different than any counter culture movement like the hippies, hip hop, La Razza, generation X and millennials until it gets twisted into a negative.

          Woah, time out, Buddy.

          It's OK when we do it, because we drink beer while sitting on a chair on our porch.

          There's rules that have to be observed, here.

            I've seen some new reports, claiming that the US's European "allies" are upset by the "escalation". Could someone please explain this to me. I'm really not getting it. Has something so profoundly changed that is now acceptable to attack another nation's embassy?

              I was not parsing one post. This seems to be his mindset.

              My own "GET OFF MY LAWN!" posts are made with humor as the intent. You point out the counter culture. I hadn't thought of it that way. Arrogance or bitterness was my guess, maybe both. Regardless of why, he's limiting his growth far more than he realizes. If even considered.

              and yes

              I play the old man card sometimes. As an earnest way to get my point across experience) or to just be silly. Depends on the day and topic. I have never put down the younger in any seriousness.

              As I tell my daughters, "Suck it up and be tough." They're past tired of hearing it.

                    Everything you wrote that I deleted in this quote is fine and/or true.

                    However, the part I quoted above is an example of you being intellectually dishonest.

                    I took no bait. I commented on your statement that people should refrain from exercising their right to free speech. I made no comments about the President or his recent policy decisions. That was all you trying to obfuscate my point.

                    Nuance plays no part in this. It’s a black and white thing in regards to my SPECIFIC point.

                    Guess I went to the IIF school of debate too.

                      Yes, it is bad because it is President Trump. If you put an arrogant asshole narcissist in office, people react to him instead of the situation. Yes, even when the person is correct.

                      He ruffles feathers, is uncouth, pats himself on the back and has zero tact. Still, the job is getting done even if I do not like the dude at all. What youngsters forget is Reagan, who he badly mimics, was just as arrogant with more tact and intelligence IMO.

                      So, IMO, the allies are reacting to their dislike of Trump as a person and not to the FACT, see my timeline above, of Iran’s repeated aggression over the last year or so.

                        Did I say that YOU took the bait?

                        No, I did not.

                        Unless, you happen to be one of the schmucks running around saying “Trump is a Russian Agent” or “Obama was an Iranian agent”,

                        At which point you did take the bait, and are a schmuck.

                        I may be wrong, but I ain’t lying...

                            The UK foreign secretary asked both parties to calm it down a bit but recognised that Iran was in the wrong. Im no fan of Trump but personally I think it was a very reasonable response.

                              He agrees when it suits him, even with the boomers, he gets butthurt when you don’t. You see mindset, I see a butthurt young adult who is shocked people who took his side a year or two ago are calling him out. So, he reacts the way children do, calling people doo doo heads instead of trying to talk it out.

                              In other words, he is having a teenage temper tantrum our kids learned didn’t work at about 10.

                              This is why I say parsing. If you take his posts as a whole, it isn’t a bigotry based ism it is a defense mechanism.
