If you could permanently reprogram the political thinking of one SOH user who would it be?
Palindrome. One less racist Black Panther supporter.
I don't care to actually change anyone's way of thinking, but there are some I would like to change how they express what they are thinking.
If change Cowboy to a major liberal and watch as everyone reels in Suprise.
I'm not sure what happened when I typed surprise, but I meant surprise.
That dude won't admit his wife has issues.
Rather than scroll ALL the way down every time, I'm posting up here to weigh in on the @iBakes/MriBakes discussion.
@Mribakes, I'm not going to call your wife names, and I do hope that she's doing well, or getting better, whichever the case may be (couldn't make it out from your comment).
I also wanted to say that I admire that you defend her so vigorously because she is your wife. I disagree with the both of you plenty, and she absolutely does *have to* get the last word in, even when she's completely wrong (in my opinion).
But it's refreshing to see a husband who's got his wife's back. Not many truly do these days.
@Randfan. Without a doubt. He'd turn into a gun-toting NRA member.
No offense to rebelfury, but he can be pretty extreme and often belittles people who disagree with him. I might tone down the belittling by making you a little more moderate and less... Enthusiastic. That way you arent bashing the heads of those who
Disagree with you
I liked your reply because I'm disagreeing with you. I love @Rebel's passion and slightly biased questions.
I hear from liv that somebody stole your screen name.
Okie - can you provide the link to mr bakes of your last interaction with bakes? If so, he will see for himself what happened.
Don't know where that was. He wouldn't buy it anyway.
I don't care to read a disagreement Okie could not handle. I've seen how he treats people here, the fact he's bitter about one conversation doesn't mean much after all he's said to others.
Hi mrbakes - I would like to say than when bakes first appeared here, I really liked her and we were friends. I loved watching her debate as she's articulate and smart. But, after about a month, I began to notice changes. She began, what I consider..
bullying. It was intimidating so I started distancing myself.
This poll isn't about attacking your wife. Perhaps you can shed some light on what caused/causes the way she behaves.
Good for you. You're obviously a mature person who instead of talking about someone frequently when you don't like them, you distance yourself. I don't think you know my wife well enough but that is your problem, not mine.
If we understand her, perhaps people will be forgiving.
We've already talked all about her attacks on attackers below. Obviously this isn't a poll about my wife, I just commented on the comment that was about her and now the comment that mentioned me.
Let me give you some insight: people call her an idiotic libtard among other names on a regular basis based on her political views so next time around she doesn't give those people respect. It's pretty clear cut.
Ok, I can see where this is going.
Thanks for taking he high road on this. Have a good day EarlyBird.
One last thing.. I've been a daily user on this app for 2 years. In that time, I've seen hundreds of people called names for their political views. RJ has been called far worse names, far more number of times than bakes. Yet, I've never seen him..
attack the way bakes does. That's it.
That's all I have.
I work a lot these days, so I'm just seeing this poll now. Someone calling iBakes names is the initial reason I spoke up in the first place. SHE was bullied on a regular basis. She just didnt shut up and walk away like she was "supposed to"...
If there was any kind of change in her it was probably her just reaching a boiling point with the Assholery (Wolfe TM) that has been thrown violently at her. Some people on here that are far worse than she could ever be....
Early, you've seen me get treated like crap solely because of a political stance. As for bullying, multiple people that I won't name bc you don't deserve to be named are sooo lucky I don't have more time these days....
If not for that, and my respect for SOH I would SHOW YOU what bullying is. You're Neanderthals and should be treated as such.
I hope iBakes comes back someday, but I would understand if she she didn't...
I'm a happier person these days, but I have the names of people that drove her out pinned up. I have no respect for some of them already, and I can't wait for the opportunity to give back to them, what they have to her.
Rob - you're right! I have seen you called names because of your views. I've always held you in high regard because of the way you've handled yourself. Rather than attack mode, you've kept your self respect and walked away, being the better man.
Sounds like Rob gets worked-up too. Hey, go down near the bottom of this poll and read what's said there. It'll get your blood going. Have fun.
@Earlybird, WHERE'S MY POPCORN?!?
Rob does get worked up, and I've exchanged insults with him before. But we've also had friendlier exchanges, and each of us have conceded points to the other from time to time.
Don't compare yourself to Ibakes, rob, you're selling yourself short.
I know I don't. She has far more higher education than I do. She's a scalpel I'm a cleaver.. She's a smart bomb I'm a bunker buster.. There, Now I compared us and this place is less intelligent place without her around......
.... It's disappointing that the people she usually argues with aren't more open minded. It they payed attention, they might actually learn something from her.
Rob - what does the "TM" after Wolfe mean?
Did Wolfe and bakes get into it once?
No.. Assholery is his word. I didn't want to use it without giving him his due ( it was a TradeMark joke)
I would change Jeninerd's opinion of cats.
She doesn't like cats?
She says they are evil creatures.
They are alien spies..
There's many folks on here who think differently. On the political side, I'd leave them alone. We're all entitled to our differences. Think how boring this app would be if we all agreed on everything. I'd change some folks on their racism & bigotry.
If I mention their names they'll just argue and nothing will change. I guess I'd just rather ignore them.
That's conflicting, what I just said. I wouldn't try to change them on here- I will continue to ignore them.
@Rand2016? Or @Randfan?
I'd get on board with @Randfan.
Maybe a few of you conservative types to even things out a bit...but really I wouldn't want to change anyone.
get a few liberal types to try the app
Seriously not worth my time/energy. 1, everyone entitled to opinion. 2, I'm under no obligation to agree w/that opinion. 3, if they are rude, hostile, aggressive, vile, I use ignore setting. I would be open to discussing alt view, not changing minds
RandFan. Haven't seen him for some time, but he could stand to be reprogrammed.
But I wouldn't turn him into a conservative...
I would've said him but he's been silent for months. Unless the ignore function means you totally can't see the person, because that would make sense.
Randfan has been gone a month and a half.
Where'd he go? I always enjoyed hearing him call me a murderer for speaking up in favor of the Second Amendment.
Haha, pinky. When the big update was released and people began posting their own polls, I followed rand and he was very involved for the first 2 weeks. Then he disappeared without a word.
I wouldn't ever, even if I could. *as Bruno Mars' "Just The Way You Are" plays in the background*
Same here. People are entitled to their opinions. Maybe I'd have someone (who was much better at explaining than I am) tie them to a chair and force them to at least listen. Haha.
Any delirious liberal would do lol!
My bad lol.
How do I determine if I'm delirious?
Kermie. If you vote democrat. :-)
Is the O on SOHs?
He saying he would change Obamas if Obama was on here
Thanks Goalie I didn't think I was being so cryptic. Lol
My bad. I must be daft today. :-)
No problem Okie no reprogramming required with you.
Cowboy. He just needs to learn to chill.
I must admit, while I don't always agree with his viewpoint, I do admire his tenacity! :)
Go cass! You are standing up for yourself today and I like!
HaHa!! Thanks E.B. :) I'm feeling a wee bit sassy today!!
Cass the sass! I love it!
If cowboy was still around, I would take away his hate without telling him. Just to watch his confusion, "hey! why can't I feel angry at everything anymore?"
I saw him on one if the polls the other day. He can see user polls now.
Cowboy is following me so it's possible that he'll be here.
He's back, just not as active as he used to be
he follows me... he occasionally comments... no where near as often as he used to...
Maybe find okie a better set of values. :0
Lol, just trying to get a rise out of ya. :)
Thanks jimi. That's just what I needed. It usually takes about 4 hours to go back down. :-)
Lol! Easy on the little blue pill.
Omg it worked!
palindrome is up there...
???????? I agree!!
I love Pali the way he is.
I wouldn't change a damn one of you.
*wrong thread please ignore
Variety is the spice of life
You know it!
Awe Tilt :) You are most certainly one of my favs!!
Feeling is mutual.
Tony, that way every poll could be biased towards my beliefs.
Gosh how boring would that be...
Not your specific beliefs. Like if all Tony's questions agreed with my beliefs, I'd have nothing to debate!
need diverse questions. even my extremist conservative views I still try to keep my questions and answer fair to both sides... you agree rlands?
Yeah goalie you do a good job with that. It's impressive.
Skinner. We have enough lefties on SOH already. We don't need you converting SOHHQ to liberalism too. :-)
Yep that's me, biggest liberal on SoH❗
Enough lefties? Lol it's like three to one against us right now.
Doesn't look that way to me Kermie. :-)
As I mentioned earlier, you spin facts to match the narrative you already believe ;)
Pot. Meet the kettle. :-)
You Okie - nah - I don't want to change people
Unless they come to change on their own - like Skinner bad political pointed out things that made me not HATE the fair tax this morning
Skinner said something good? Huh.
Thanks Shelly! Okie will come around one of these days.
"Okie is a liberal..." --- said no one ever.
Lol I'm starting to think Okie actually believes I'm a leftist.
Just having fun with you skinner. You are what most conservatives would call a "rino" though. You're probably closer to libertarian than you are a republican.
Nice pic Shelly. Where in CA do you live?
Thank you Okie - I live in North Eastern California in the Sierra Nevada mountain range - same type area as Lake Tahoe - not quite as high in elevation and about 2.5 hours away
ScottyDoesNo. He's a radical republican and a troll. A pure disgrace to the entire SoH community.
Just because you're radical, and a republican, and a troll doesn't mean you're a "radical republican and a troll."
Oh, and he pissed off our Tony! That man should be shot.
What did you say?
ha ha oh you didn't catch that whole affair? It made me a SoH celebrity! Scroll WAY down to the "Chaos Tuesday" poll from 06/25/2013 and then the accompanying follow up poll on 06/26/2013. Be warned, hilarity will ensue.
That was hilarious.
An SoH celebrity? Lol.
I honestly can't think of anyone. I like how diverse we all are here.
That being said, if anyone want's to change my views, I dare you
I just cast the spell on you. Can you feel it?
Ohh. Better watch out, I hear Mormon spells are pretty powerful.. ; )
I thought witchcraft was a sin? :P
It's working! See. You're starting to think like a Mormon already. :-)
Mormons are evil, beware!
Quiet Ed before I break your other jaw. Jk. :-)
I actually laughed out loud! You guys are too funny!
Anyone pro abortion.
Almost nobody is "pro-abortion."
Not true. A lot of people are. Sarah Palin keeping her baby really pissed a lot of democrats off.
WTH are you talking about? Who gives a shit about Sarah Palin and her baby? Nobody I know. She had the freedom to make that choice for herself and that's what I care about.
Again, I've never met a person who likes abortion. Get over yourselves.
Good on Palin!
I remember newscasters being upset about it when was running for VP. They viewed it as evidence that she rebukes abortion.
Pro choice means pro abortion
Of course she's against choice for others. That's what makes people upset. Not that she made her own choice.
I think I've found my candidate for your own question. You spin facts to fit the narrative you already believe. That's what I'd change Okie.
Pro choice is NOT pro abortion. I'm pro choice but I would never have an abortion & I would do what I could to help other make that same choice but it is theirs to make.
I. AM. NOT. PRO. ABORTION.
I believe in liberty and each individual's right to choose. I do not like abortion. Where the fuck do you get off telling me what I believe?
Pro choice doesn't mean pro abortion. That's like saying pro hamburger means pro McDonalds. Pro choice just means pro choice. You don't have to support a person's choice to support their right to choose.
No - I know no one who is pro-abortion. We are pro-choice. We want mothers to be able to choose and personally I disagree with SCOTUS - I think fathers should have a say as well. I am not in the least bit upset Sarah kept her baby
Um, wasn't it Sarah's DAUGHTER's baby? Sarah was the grandmother, right? Unless I missed some recent news.
Oh. You're right. My bad. That's what it was.
It was both. Sarah had a baby with physical disabilities and was told it would be safer to abort--she didn't. And Bristol had a baby at seventeen and probably should have aborted given what a tool her boyfriend turned out to be and the media circus.
Being pro-choice means leaving the option of abortion available. I can see where people would be coming from. However, abortion is not murder, therefore it should be available to all women up to the point of viability. Didn't we determine this in...
Yes Beach - we did
Beachst - "abortion is not murder"?...what would you call stopping the life of a baby with a beating heart who sucks his thumb and kicks his tiny legs?
Murder is killing a person. If I strangled the person next to me, it would be murder.
@Beach, A baby isn't a person?? You're one sick puppy.
Killing an unborn baby is murder. No one has a right to do that.
I can hold a baby. Murdering a baby is, and should be, illegal. Abortion is fully legal, don't act like it's not. It's a woman's choice down to the last nickel.
For any of you: when does a fetus become a person? Please provide evidence, not your opinion.
Kermie. It's entirely subjective. You can't prove they're not a person. Mere opinion is all that's needed in the voting booth.
Opinion over what a woman should be allowed to do to her body. If men were the ones that got pregnant, this wouldn't even be an issue.
Precisely. It's opinion. So stop stating it as if it's fact. And what do you think gives you the right to decide someone else's behavior based merely on your opinion? What hubris!!
Democracy: the majority "opinion" forcing its view on the minority. It's good to be in the majority. Sucks to be in the minority.
Better head back to fifth grade social studies, my friend. We don't live in a democracy. We live in a republic very purposefully constrained by a Constitution that prevent the whims of the majority from taking away the rights of the minority.
Even so, I'm not talking politics. I'm just talking about every day discussions here. I admit that I don't know when a fetus becomes a human so I have the humility not to suggest anyone else should behave how I would. Clearly you do not.
Funny how liberals say we're a republic on this issue, but a democracy on gun rights. Your playing pot and kettle again.
I've never said any such thing. But nice job entirely avoiding the question.
Boys, boys, we do indeed live in a representative republic AND it has not yet been established (except by God who is the one a woman should be consulting with in my opinion about abortion) when a fetus becomes a person - these are truths
Except the God part - that was my opinion
I like all the different perspectives! The only thing I would change was if there was someone who was a bandwagon rep or dem. But most everyone seems to have sound reasoning behind their ideas. I like that.
susanr. And any others sympathetic to communism. But I'm not gonna tell then what to think those are just the people who I would change if it was even a possibility.
I don't think Susan is sympathetic to communism...
Susan calls herself a communist. :)
With this comment I chose angerer!
I'm pretty sure she would admit she's a socialist, not a communist.
Susan is a proud, self-proclaimed communist, but I believe it's the "hippie, free love, voluntarily live in a commune" style of communism, not the "lets force a communist economic system on the US" style of communist. At least I hope this is true.
What you guys think of as communism isn't actually communism.
Yeah, I didn't think she was a state communist, just a commune communist.
That would be socialism okie
Exactly dud. She did live in a hippie commune for several years. She'll be here soon to set us straight, I'm sure.
She calls it communism. Did you read the "self-proclaimed" part? And yes, living in a "commune" is a type of "commun"ism. I think I said she wasn't the "economic system"!type of commie, didn't I?
You take out the economic principles of communism and its socialism...
As far as a social standard.
I really don't know if she is a "textbook" communist though. She's never said.
I like her regardless though. She and I almost never agree, but I like her very much anyway. :-)
Susan is probably laughing her ass off reading this.
Susan was a commune-ist and probably still one at heart sans commune. Now she's a commuter-ist like most of us.
simplyace. That was his name
I'm back now.
As a utopian (read: totally unrealistic) ideal, I would like to see a system of actual communism - not the big-C Communism we've seen in some horrific governments. I lived in a small community system of a network of communes that was pretty much...
..based on communism, for some years. People did work that they loved, we shared the crap jobs, decisions were made (at least in my commune, plus some at the network level) by consensus, we took care of people's needs. I see no way that sort of...
..system could be used on the level of this country - it takes a selflessness, caring about others, & willingness to compromise clearly aren't present. Besides, we were a self-selected group; we cared about each other because we already cared...
..about each other, & you can't impose that on anyone. It *could* exist at a community or larger level, but it doesn't.
So when I say I'm a communist (and/or socialist hippie pinko whatever), it's about an ideal I know doesn't exist, not...
..at all about being a big-C Communist sympathizer. And partly just to get it out there so I don't have to listen to comments like "you must be some kind of libtard."
And what the heck is wrong with wanting that kind of society, anyway? Isn't it pretty much what Jesus preached, if not envisioned?
What would you change me to if you could, angerer? And why?
Sorry, I wasn't extremely informed on your stance. We can want that society all we want but the only way I see it ever happening is if/when Jesus comes back.
Okie was right again.
Susan. If its completely voluntary then I it doesn't bother me. "Government," however, is never voluntary in its enforcement. That's why communism must be restricted to communes.
It's what he commanded his followers to do. You'd never know it by the way they act today though.
Sounds like a cool experience, Susan. You're right it will never work large scale, but then neither does capitalism work. The ideal is still good.
I do, however, approve of a lot of government programs that some people refer to as "socialist," because at least they embody a measure of that attitude about caring for - literally as well as figuratively - all of our citizens.
You do know that free market isn't voluntary either, right? We're under the heel of a handful of corporations and media outlets. I'd rather be subservient to a socialist government than a self-serving corporatocracy like we have now.
angerer - too bad that it would, in your words, have to wait until/if Jesus comes back. There's a whole lot about that statement that makes me profoundly sad. About my fellow humans, that is, since I'm an atheist.
This is where Kermie and I are 100% on the same page.
Free market capitalism only creates slavery.
kermie - It was an incredible experience, and I have a feeling you might have fit right in & loved it. There are remnants of it still, in San Francisco, that I see every February when I come back to visit. In fact, the event I come for is...
Oh the "perks" of humanity being totally depraved.
So- to sum up...
Susan is a commu-do,
And Okie is a commu-don't
..conducted in much the same way... As a gift to friends & community.
Where exactly in the Bible did Jesus advocate for a communist style of living?
Communism didn't even exist then.
*sigh* you've read the bible, haven't you?
Hahaha and livefree claims to be a libertarian
Looks like rebel can't read. Read the last comment on that post about you.
I've got it! @Susan is a communalist!
Rebelfury. Maybe I could change him into an actual libertarian.
Ha ha. I'm not sure you're a real libertarian. Every libertarian I meet has a different definition of libertarianism.
At least I'm actually socially liberal and not just hiding under the "states right" BS argument.
But perhaps you're right because I don't believe in free market capitalism.
But that's because I'm a realist.
I'm always right. :-)
Same, he's so extreme it makes my head want to explode. Like seriously, what's wrong with providing for the general public with taxpayer money?
Whoa whoa whoa...whoa
Eds, I'll handle you in a minute.
What do you mean "actual libertarian"?
Lol, he thought I was serious.
Didn't someone do a poll about how it's a made-up persona?
People say he's a troll and I'm uncertain because sometimes he's extreme but usually makes great points.
*Don't know if troll or just really extreme*
I'm right here ya know.
And no, this is how I am. You call it extreme, I call it passionately different.
Honestly, you Republicrats have had the reigns long enough, look where it got us. Isn't it time for something else?
Ohai was talking about a poll about BeachBum and livefree being the same persona. He wasn't referencing you rebel.
Not a republican, try again.
Ohhhhh, well then forgive me. It's hard sometimes to keep track like this.
Wasn't addressing you Eds but that's good, hopefully that means you're also not a democrat since they're essentially the same thing.
That's hilarious. "People say he's a troll."
Got that right!
Okay, so let me get this straight:
-Livefree was previously beachbum and is just a fictional libertarian persona?
-Rebelfury is just a really passionate minarchist
And I'm a libertarian, I've done work for my state chapter ^.^
Livefree was beachbum for about 3 weeks.
Livefree used to be armynco
Livefree had been a card carrying libertarian for 10 years.
BeachBum is still in use today though, so he's still a split personality. Right?
The username beachbum83 wa taken by ace(something) as a trolling fun joke. Not site why he hasn't changed his name back.
The current beachbum83 is not controlled by me.
Armynco, livefree83 and my beachbum83 have all been under the same account
So you have two accounts?
Who the hell is beachbum now?
Livefree, from our conversations I find it difficult to believe you embrace liberty on all the issues. Don't you support the drug war and the conflicts overseas?
Absolutely do not support the drug war. Never said so. In fact I have said that all drugs should be decriminalized. It's up to the user to decide, not anyone else.
This is why I can't believe anything you say. You either assume or make shit up.
Well I know we don't always see eye to eye and I'm only one step away from being an anarchy type so what makes you the libertarian deity?
Never said I was. Was mostly just joking with my OP.
I don't mean this as an insult, but livefree does seen more like a democrat than a libertarian.
Ace didn't live in California. I don't think that's the real Ace. He gave me this account to use about a week ago. He said he was going to make a new account last time I talked to him. I don't know the accounts username.
People who keep on asking questions we're both replies mean the same thing. I don't want to name names.
Hey now, I only did that once...or twice...three times tops.
I wouldn't. I don't use force on others who haven't aggressed against me.
Party pooper. Who said they weren't willing? It's a hypothetical. Construct it in such a way so that it's ok to play.
⬆⬆⬆⬆take a look a few posts above this one. There's your entry criteria.
Fine, I'd tone down livefree's insatiable need to jerk off with an American flag to a picture of Uncle Sam burning a Quran.
Iknow, but imnot saying.
Ineed to go bake a cake.
Ha ha. That's hilarious.
agreed lol. nice riddle
Dud. I think she's still at her girlfriend's party in Vegas. Ha ha.
I love that my wife is such a badass you're intimidated by her, milkdud. I would love to see her take you down in real life too.
Mribakes- with all sincerity, I genuinely feel bad for you.
Very very clever!!! She's quite a gem ;)
I can understand why a half-wit such as yourself wouldn't appreciate intelligent amazing women. Don't worry little buddy, I won't hold it against you.
Thank you for that, mribakes.
I can see that the two of you were clearly meant for eachother.
Bakes. It's admirable that you stand up for your wife, but your wife isn't a badass. She's an ass. She argues like a bully and moves the target during a convo to avoid counter-arguments. If I was getting some nookie from her I might tolerate it too.
Nah, she's a badass. You fall into the same category as milkdud, as far as the simplicity leaving you unable to appreciate real women. It is quite interesting to see the bully cry bully though!
You're right about that, milkdud, being meant for each other. Intelligent competence tends to stick together, and we have.
"Half-baked" is more likely than competence. This is really upsetting isn't it?
The only downside to my wife is that she cares what people here think. I don't. I find it sad you two are the way you are and I hope one day you have better things to do than frequently talk about someone you don't know.
I'm amused right now, because if you combine the intelligence of milkdud and the 18 other people who liked his comment, it MIGHT add up to the intelligence of my wife. Maybe.
Have a good night gentlemen.
This is bothering you. You argue like she does - personal attacks.
Mribakes- when insults are used it shows lack of intelligence. you and your wife avoid rebutles and won't listen to anyone else. I'm sorry for her because you are just as much of an ass as she is
I'm trying to figure out why you're trying to call her a bully, as a bully, and why you find it appropriate to be completely hypocritical. Have you thought about the possibility she goes for the belt because that's how you and others treat her?
I'm listening to everyone and responding accordingly. Just because you said I'm avoiding rebuttals does not make it true.
you are denying that your wife is a bully...typical liberal
The only thing you have to say is throwing around the word liberal like it's supposed to be an insult? You're also putting words into my mouth. It's definitely interesting how you all are behaving while whining how someone else conducts herself!
and just because 20 people liked it doesn't mean they don't like your wife. it means they liked the riddle. it was funny. but you ibakes are mean and quick to attack
I also never said 20 people dislike my wife. I said something to milkdud because I've seen his demeanor towards not only my wife but anyone he feels threatened by. The others jumped in and made themselves fair game.
I actually liked ibakes until about 2 weeks ago when she attacked like a pit bull. It was really strange because she's normally very nice to me and I go out of my way to say hello and be nice.
Let's land this thing and agree to disagree.
your wife wasn't the only user brought up. tons of users were. its a change politics not personality/intelligence. I get along with lots of liberals on here in non political questions. you are getting on my nerves taking this so seriously
How is iBakes doing? Is everything ok with her? Haven't seen her in a while.
I've personally been the recipient of nasty, negative, unwarranted, undeserved remarks from ibakes. I'll gladly engage in debate with someone of opposing views. However, her tactics are underhanded and inherently mean. She's a nasty little snake.
Mribakes - I've told your wife this before, with no success. Maybe it will do you some good...Read over this conversation. Look how quickly you turned to cutting, personal attacks and berating people.
Why does such a confident, intelligent person...
You two think you're a lot smarter than you actually are. She has the biggest ego and "I'm always right." Attitude of anyone I've ever talked to. I've avoided all contact with her over controversial subjects because she has such of a nasty attitude.
...need to resort to those tactics? I lob the occasional insult, too, but I at least try to lace it with humor, and it isn't the first tactic I turn to.
You, however, have never spoken to me before, afaik, and here you are calling me stupid.
I think the two of you are burning more bridges on this app than you realize.
As I've said to her many times, if your only defense is to insult and demean your opposition, then maybe you aren't as intelligent as you think.
Mr Bakes rates other people's polls downward 51% of the time, so we should give him some slack. He's about 3x as generous as his wife. Ha ha.
That being said- you two need to market your relationship. I would buy tickets to watch the two of you argue. It must be fascinating.
Cass, that was funny BTW.
Dud, I don't think it would be any match at all. In fact, right now I think Mr. Bakes is typing while a foot rests on his neck and his balls are tied to a hook in the ceiling.
Okie, no, things aren't great with her right now. It's nice of you to treat her as a person though, thank you for asking.
Again, I think it's comical you all just spent quit a bit of time attacking someone, to complain of them attacking. Really, it's very amusing to me.
Milkdud, we essentially never fight. In all the time we've been together we've resorted to yelling only once. See, intelligent adults know how to talk things through. It's a little sick you think about those things though.
We're just sick of her being a bitch, to be quite frank. Now I'm not one to use profanity so when I do use it, I mean it.
Okie, that was inappropriate. Now I wish I hadn't thanked you for asking how she's doing. She's actually out surfing while me and a few friends relax on the beach. She doesn't know I'm in this thread and won't see the conversation.
Angerer, I've also seen how you act on here and it probably isn't wise of you to call someone else a bitch. If you can't take someone standing up for themselves this might not be the best app for you to be using.
Mribakes, I'm just trying to round out my mural of the two of you. I have a scene of you as a centaur and she as a wood nymph riding you around a forest, but I don't have a proper image of the two of you locked in battle. Are you a strong swimmer?
Okie-that was brilliant.
Balls tied to a hook. Pure. Comedy.
Do any of you have something you would like to discuss that doesn't involve hypothetical scenarios a teenager may cook up? Or would you like to be left alone to talk all night about someone you've never met and know nothing about?
Mribakes, I think the only way you're going to save face is to apologize. Admit that you got off on the wrong foot & didn't recognize my original post was a good natured joke, and that insulting everyone is a bad way for a nice guy like you to act.
The last time I ever acted like this was at least four months ago and I was arguing your wife about something or another. Guess who started the attacking.. That's right, you got it!!! Señorita iBakes.
No milkdud, I've seen how you act towards my wife and other people. Your comment was anything but good natured.
Mribakes, I'm starting to think that you are ibakes. I think that either mr ibakes is an account ibakes created for her own weird reasons, or that she is borrowing mribakes phone so that she can address my original post without appearing pathetic.
Wow, that's a high horse you're sitting on.
If this isn't your scene, angerer, not entering the conversation to begin with may have been something to consider. Again, you acting this way while complaining about someone's demeanor is comical.
Angerer- that isn't a horse, its a centaur.
Oh, I thought you were talking about my mural.
No milkdud, my wife has been taking a break from this app. She isn't using it herself right now, nor is she using it from my phone.
If you want to be funny, milkdud, you might not want to switch up which of us is riding something. Keep the storyline consistent.
Mribakes, you've seen how I act toward your wife?
Have you used your astute powers of observation to watch how she treats other people?
Have you paid attention to how you've treated people in this thread?
Open your eyes, buddy.
I can handle myself better than your wife in a debate. I'm 17... that's how little she controllers herself in debates.
I actually considered not commenting but I was sick of shying away from commenting on my opinion on something because I was afraid of being bullied.
I figured since you're her hubby that you could through to her since none of us could, but turns out that you're just as bad.
Really? You all are still going to complain about how she treats, and now how I treat, other people while acting the way you are/have? Ha ha. This is too good!
Fight fire with fire.
What's funny is that while all of you are sitting around whining you've been completely oblivious to how she treats others who aren't complete assholes to her. Have any of you thought about how maybe you're the cause, not effect?
Reread my post, mribakes.
"Fight fire with fire." EXACTLY. So, you at least understand the concept of what I'm telling you.
Of course she's going to attack people who consistently attack her. Of course I'm not going to start with a hug to those same people.
I suggest you reread my comments as well. On that note, my lovely wife is done surfing so we're going to enjoy dinner with some friends. Continue the comical display of hypocrisy if you so please but I'll pass on continuing tonight. Enjoy the night.
She only treats people nice who are too afraid to say they don't agree with her!! And when people say they don't agree with her she goes berserk!
I have never initiated an attack on her other than tonight, she has always attacked me first.
So what you're saying is that your wife's apparent personality flaws are the fault of all of the people who have had negative interactions with her.
Were it not for all the people she can't get along with, she would get along with everyone?
One of her favorite people on here, who she talks to all the time outside the app, is a Republican who rarely agrees with her politically. So actually, you're completely wrong.
Goodnight gentlemen. Get off here and go enjoy your weekend.
That's never been the case with any of my experiences. I'd like to believe everything you've told me about her, she just hasn't shown any of those traits to me ever.
Suggestion: treat other people like people and you're more likely to receive the same treatment in return.
Tell your wife that. Have you not been listening? She's the bitch that needs an attitude adjustment.
Have you not been listening? She only treats people like that if they behave as raging lunatics with zero self-control or tolerance. Given you all have greeted me with hostility I can only imagine what you pull with people you've disagreed with.
You have the facts wrong.
This was your opening line, ibakes:
"I love that my wife is such a badass you're intimidated by her, milkdud. I would love to see her take you down in real life too."
How does that fit into your golden rule?
No Okie, I don't. You're a resident asshole on this app. This is coming from many users, not including my wife. You're rude, intolerant and some people you may consider your friends actually go out of their way to avoid you. Those are the facts.
Me stating I would love to see my wife take down someone who has a bizarre fascination with her and can't seem to resist speaking poorly of her is just a statement, not a personal attack. I don't have time for your defensiveness milkdud.
As for your second comment, you're probably right as long as we define "raging lunatics with zero self-control or tolerance" as "anyone who disagrees with her, points out holes in her position, or stand up for themselves when she says they're wrong."
You're acting like we haven't had many experiences with ibakes and so we don't know. We're all actually very experienced with iass and know how she is.
Thanks for the compliment btw. He he.
No milkdud, that's actually you. You're one of those people who gets defensive and takes a disagreement on a topic as a personal attack. I appreciate the comedy via your hypocrisy once again though. Thanks.
The fact you took that as a compliment says everything about you Okie. Some of the most popular and active users on here have a lot of contact with her - in the app and outside of it - and don't feel this way about her. The problem is you few.
Moving targets again. Switching it to me. I don't think you are "mr bakes." I think you're ibakes.
You clearly lack the capacity for self awareness in social situations. You do realize that you came into this thread spewing all sorts of venom at everyone, just like your wife does, right?
I'm still not convinced you aren't her.
Wow. Further explaining my point by mentioning the way you conduct yourself and treat others isn't moving targets, it's discussing the topic of interactions which you all brought up, not me. Like I said yesterday, she's taking a break from here.
Still don't have time for your defensiveness milkdud.
And your use of the "I know you are but what am I" move is straight out of her play book.
You also failed the "last word" test, and by a 12 hour margin, too!
She has never been able to let someone have the last word in this app, afaik. Hilarious.
I expressed my disinterest in continuing he conversation last night when I was busy and picked it up again this morning. That isn't a need to have the last word, that's enjoying my social life and not making this app a priority.
Keep going with comments like that while complaining about someone's demeanor though. It was funny yesterday, still funny today!
And as for your accusation of being defensive, you may want to review how you entered into this thread.
It's ok, ibakes, you can have the last word. We all know you can't help yourself.
And we won't tell your hubby you've been using his phone.
Do you see how much time you have spent talking about my wife here and in other comments? Does that give you a clue as to why you don't get any respect from her or most people here?
If you aren't even going to discuss this and turn the conversation into inappropriate comments like you did last night, I don't want to spend more time here. My wife doesn't have my phone and she hasn't been on this app for a couple weeks now.
Is this going anywhere?
No one is going to change positions.
And no one is coming out of this appearing to be the better. Lots of good conversations and polls out there. Lets move on. Please.
Good idea. I'll move on. I need to head out for breakfast and a wedding anyway. Hopefully a couple of you will consider things I've said. Have a good Sunday everyone.
Okie and Milkdud, gentleman, clearly this "mribakes" goof has no ability to recognize when he/she/it is wrong. This is evident by the length of this thread and the fact it's gone nowhere. You two gents are FAB in my book, chin up and walk away ;)
Jesus. The childishness in this thread from all of you is appalling. You all deserve each other.
Me. Then maybe I would give a sh!t about politics.
Kind of a weird place to not care much for politics lol
Yes. two actually.
Do I havvveeeee too?
Yes. That's the fun.
Okie and SRJ. I'm sure that's not a shock though.
That's ok. Luvs for Inge!
it's only cuz I have a soft spot for you two :)
He he. Inge has a "soft spot" for me. I knew that already.
Your a very nice person Inge. Loves for you all the time. :-)
It's not me. *phew* though I doubt a lot of people know where I stand politically.
srj changed his username
Maybe not the political thinking but the way he acts towards others. Cowboy.
I haven't seen anything from him in months.....
I haven't either. But he has left a definite impression
I agree but mostly for the sake of his young daughter.
I think he's the only person I've ignored.
Ignored him due to being rude or his political stances?
He's been around once a week or so. I just saw him day before yesterday.
Ignored for rudeness.
Okie. Wait, did I just say that?
You were my 2nd choice. I chose zman117 as my pic.
Would I really be your pick for reprogramming?
No. Just messin' with ya'!
