I didn't "blow a cork" Maddy. Stick to the issue. You have been forthcoming about your politics... until I pointed out the very one-sided and ubiquitous nature of this political theory and you proceeded to pretend that there was nothing political said at all and I was projecting and being a hypocrite or something.Maddy wrote: ↑Sun May 27, 2018 8:03 amModa, I've never been anything but completely forthcoming about my social and political views. The implication that you've somehow "outed" me as a conservative is bizarre. Your complaint, in fact, is that you are tired of hearing my thoughts about modern liberalism.
It seems that you're bent on finding an unacceptable partisan political motivation behind everything I say. I referred to The Great Leveling in the public educational system--a phenomenon that elicits different reactions from each side of the political aisle but the existence of which cannot be denied--and off you went. You then offered a previous comment of mine (in which I made the association between bullying in schools and the progressive educational system) as proof that my questioning of the four-point-plus GPA scale had an insidious political motivation. Interestingly, my GPA comment could just have easily been interpreted (as it apparently was by Pugchief), as expressing skepticism that the stellar GPAs being earned by the highest-achieving students represented a form of grade inflation that were not truly earned.
In this case, it appears that you were primed and ready to blow a cork.
In the end, it doesn't matter to me one iota whether my comments are classified as "political commentary," "social commentary," or "other." But it does bother me when you resort to intellectual dishonesty to make your point. Or when you spend most of your time nipping at the heels of individual posters for the perceived flaws in their views rather than making substantive contributions of your own.
So why is what I think so all-fire important to you? Is anybody stopping you from expressing your point of view?
You haven't even addressed that you were completely full of it claiming that you weren't being political. You just moved on. Which is fine, I suppose, if you weren't continuing to lean on this supposed claim that I "blew up" at you or something. If you don't want to get called out for your completely delusional take on reality, don't share it on a public forum.
