What I was trying to say to Greenman is that it would not matter to MrSquished, I believe, even if the statistics were true, but I appreciate you telling me they are not. I didn't think to question them. In my opinion talk of crime rates are all about politicians trying to tell voters what wonderful jobs they are doing or how terrible the other party is doing. It's all about manipulating people with fear and I try to remember that death will follow you right into a bank vault. What I lack, again, is gratitude. Every moment, is it not a treasure with all the money in the world you cannot buy?

I think if the crime rate was high eski and mrsquish would acknowledge it. In fact I’d say that if, under democrat control it was a verifiable fact that the crime rate was higher than Republican controlled cities/states that they would acknowledge it. They would also have no problem criticizing democrats over their failed policies.

I don't see MrSquishead's posts.
My only other comments to add to this thread are that I don't see any national guard troops wandering around here, and as per my original post, that indicates that NYC is going through a rough patch. That lead fskimospy into a defensive posture and diversionary tactics. That said, there is nothing wrong with defending your home town.
You need to disguise your concern trolling better than this. In the meantime you might want to direct your attention to the crazy high crime in your own state.

Oh so now the facts are inconvenient to you so now of course I would ignore them. Impressive MAGA logic Mr. missing a headlight beam.

I appreciate you constantly posting how intellectually dishonest you are, not just on guns, but various other issues.

He's not concern trolling, he is a willfully ignorant piece of regressive right-wing shit. Not liking Trump or Q is a pretty fucking low bar to clear, and he barely clears it.

I may say it the most clearly, but pretty much everyone here has called him out for what he is in so many words, mostly more politely but really, all saying the same thing. He ignores me because I am the most honest, but really, mostly everyone else just says the same thing with nicer words. Get with the program and start to recognize the enemy.

Hehe, he has some unfortunate perspectives I try to help him with. He is kind of like the opposite of you who are actually the same when one has had an insight into the nature of paradox that was created by the invention of language, an insight that puts an end to that delusion. I see defending one's home town as a subset of defending the ego which saved us from death by humiliation as children by giving us at least something we could hang on to for dear life. That makes it hard for people to let go. We don't want to see that the ego was necessary defense but not the real good. Use caution, I say, when trying to free a wild animal from a trap. They can become quite snappy. ;)

When did thanking someone for pointing out something I completely did not factor in become intellectually dishonest. I think this is one of those perspectives you need help with. Just saying. I'm here for you to dump on.

I agree. I also acknowledge that statistically I have higher risk owning a gun. What I was saying that if I lived in NYC and the crime rate were higher than elsewhere and I loved living there my desire to stay would not be overridden by statistics at the level we were talking about, that 94% of the country was safer. I would not give a shit. NYC is Metrosexual heaven which is more heaven that many people know. Me well it's la la la la la la

Stabbing because turned down by a girl.. INCEL
That is not what really happened at all. Her rejection merely triggered the one feeling he most wanted to avoid, that he is too worthless for anybody to love. he simply took all the hatred that was directed at him as a child that made him feel that way and dumped it on her to teach her a lesson by pretending his own feelings about himself were caused by her.

Just imagine if I were dumb enough to tell you your feelings about immigrants in your city amount to the same thing. Lucky thing for me. Somebody around here told you that long ago.

They would indeed be exactly that just as you totally ignored the fact that your issues with immigrants are the same. And as incredible as it may be obvious to anybody else that you did that, you yourself were completely blind to it.

If the solution to high crime is deploying the National Guard, you must be incredibly upset that Republican run states/cities with higher crime than NYC aren't doing the same.

While all compassion mode might sound all goody good to you.. catering to them costs $$$$ and someone has to pay.

It ends up being American citizens most at risk and those unable to fight back..


But sure call me what you want to justify your oversight.

And if you think we're horrible.. maybe you should look north or south of the border:

LOLz total disregard for facts and just calling names..

You're exactly like MAGA Trumpers.. denial denial denial, double down and blame it on others.

Funny how @MrSquished just diagnosed you on this very page and here you are yet again..

Oh so now the facts are inconvenient to you so now of course you would ignore them. Impressive MAGA logic Mr. missing a headlight beam.

Edit: oh and thanks for demonstrating my point perfectly that there are people like you don't read stats.. they go by feels and a pre-determined bias.

I've been a bit combative with a few posters on here for the last few months for not towing the party line and have been call alarmist/ concern trolling/ maga lite but nope.. I'm still a blue blooded dem who hates Republicans and Trump but one who wants dems to win!

What I didn't know at the time was apparently the person I was raising alarm on was people like you.. who ignore stats and go by feels.


For those who thought I was turning right winger, maga lite or whatever.. relax.. I'm not! :)

You can always tell a bigot but you can't tell him much. You probably are unaware that your feelings are being triggered by statistics. You are aware, I am sure, that many cite IQ statistics when they say that it's OK to discriminate against Black people because they are intellectually inferior and not taking into account the fact that such tests profoundly biased and essentially worthless to boot.

Being wrong is one thing. Thinking that being a bigot makes you inferior is quite another. You are a bigot. Get over feeling defensive about it. The course of yout life up to this point has made it impossible for it to have been otherwise. in the now is the only time you can change.

By the way, you will never find real truth if you don't know how to feel. The truth you believe is the truth about how you feel and how you feel is the last thing you will want to face. You don't want the bigot label because it would confirm the feeling you do not know that you feel that you are worthless even though you are not. When you attack me you do nothing but attack yourself. Your spite toward me pales in comparison to the contempt I feel for myself but mirrors your own for yourself. I wish you a speedy recovery.

He is just trying to pat himself on the back on a forum dominated by liberals to excuse and distract from the fact he's a Republican bigot when it comes to immigrants. Like you, he mistakes my disagreement with him for condemnation and feels a need to strike back at clouds. You do the same when you pretend I oppose gun regulation. I am all for sensible gun regulation and further feel that a real dent in gun violence will only come when we do something about the level of mental illness we have in our nation. You are a fanatical raving white night but your understanding of complex psychological issues is as shallow as the culture around you in my opinion. Your potty mouthed honesty, as you refer to it, is in fact an emotional addiction you indulge in to keep you from your real feelings. You can hide the truth from yourself, but any who can't easily see you for what you are, just like them.

I'm anti muslim, not anti immigrant.. at least get that part right FFS!

And I'm no republican.. I want dems to win so they have to tackle the issues that're costing them votes with indys - namely immigration.

Using your pathetic sewerbeam logic.. trumpanzees who say abortion stance is costing them votes are really dems.

Wish that were the case but we know they'll vote Trump and tow the partyline.

I’m not a video watcher but if they are saying median rents are $5k in the Bronx they are ludicrously wrong.
