PUNKED!!!! He got scared, I guess, and while I was responding, he blocked me... why are Palinbots SO AFRAID of hearing what someone has to say??
So ... if anyone knows Steven M Booth, tell him I did him the courtesy of an reply, too bad he didn't have the integrity to accept it!
Alright, Karen, since you seem to have a reasonable command of the english language, I will respond, but before I do, I have one question to ask. Are you truly interested in actually discussing and discovering truth, or are you intent on merely parroting what others have to say about topics, Sarah or otherwise?
I ask this because I'm personally interested in knowing what's true, not what I hear on TV or the internet.
I took the time to respond to Mr Booth, but, like Sarah Palin does on her site, he took the cowardly way out of 'hearing' what I had to say, he sent this:
Since you choose not to respond, I am forced to the conclusion that you are not a seeker of truth, but rather a minion of innuendo, disinformation and hatred. You are hereby blocked.
The following is the PM I was graciously writing to him, which he didn't receive because he was busy 'concluding' that I was 'not a seeker of truth'. Cowardly and incredibly rude, but what should I have expected, he is a Sarah Fan after all ....
I always read all sides of an issue. I know when someone is trying to 'fool' me with a fake/edited video, and when that happens, I ask myself: Now, why would he/she try to do that? Does that person think I am so stupid that I will believe what he is trying to make me believe without checking it out?
From there, is the first step in finding out the truth.
Sarah likes to quote Reagan a lot ... but one of his BEST quotes, is one she has never used, which is: TRUST BUT VERIFY ... that is a great irony, if you think about it, since most of the stories in her book have been debunked by those who know.
Most of the people on her site are barely literate. It is beyond their reading skills to read critically.
This is why they don't ask themselves:
Why does Sarah make personal demeaning attacks on those who she has issues with, rather than present her viewpoint to counter theirs? Why call people childish names, or demean them (such as Congressman Halcro of Alaska for example? Can't she support her position??? If so, why make fun of his 'driving job' and call him a derogatory name? ) Can't she defend her position, so she resorts to insults, in a forum (her book) where he can't defend himself or respond?
Who, past High School, demeans people from the safety of a book or a podium, by calling them names, or making fun of their jobs (such as a lady who sells food from a cart in Alaska) but avoids an adult discussion of ideas with others who are knowledgeable about the issues she says she knows about? (such as a citizen of her town who objected to the millions of debt Sarah saddled the town with??)
Don't you find it curious that everyone, from the campaign staff, to the people she worked with in Alaska, to the lawyers who worked ON HER SIDE in the Exxon case to the people who knew her as Governor or Mayor ALL say her book is a 'pack of lies' or 'complete fabrication' or utter fantasy???
Do you seriously believe that EVERYONE Sarah has come in contact with is somehow just 'against her' ???? And if so, do you then believe she is a leader if she doesn't earn the respect and admiration of those who work with her?
Why does Sarah never miss a chance to make fun of people who are educated, or thoughtfull about issues? She appears very insecure around 'ideas' ... more comfortable with easy sound bites or out of context quotes.
Why does she allow so many 'conspiracies' on her site, yet the censors are quick to delete anyone who points them out?
Why is it permissible, on her site, to advocate that people 'pray for the death of Obama' ... and those posts are not deleted ??
These are all questions that a reasonable person who seeks 'facts' would ask themselves. Facts are easy to verify, you know. Opinions should be based on facts and experience ...
Everyone has a right to forn an opinion but nobody has the right to form a fact ... those who do, are liars.
SOOOOOOOOOOOOoo if anyone knows the cowardly Mr Booth, or can send him a PM, tell him his response is here, it was being written as he was blocking me.
I suppose he isn't used to being talked to in 'paragraphs' ....... most Palinbots are more comfortable with Fridge Magnet type of 'discussion' .
