Then that's the point where you laugh and refuse to take seriously anything more he has to say. You can't win in a fight about what another person meant to say. He can reasonably claim to be an expert authority on what he meant to say, and that trumps anything you can offer.

People who cannot accurately articulate their ideas aren't worth spending any effort on.

I don't know about that. You might help them with redundant phrases like "accurately articulate." Then, perhaps they could competently effectively accurately articulate clear communications of text the idea of their idea.

Meanwhile, Democrats can cheat on their taxes...

National Journal wrote:
Republican Rep. Tom Reed isn't great at paying his taxes. Over the weekend, a story from The Buffalo News reported that the New York lawmaker has been late 38 times paying his property taxes since 2005. Having paid $3,486.51 in late fees, Reed is now on the right side of the law, but as a member of the committee that actually writes tax law it's more than embarrassing.

At least he has plenty of company.[...]
1) Republican Rep. Jon Runyan of New Jersey earned millions of dollars (and a reputation as a "dirty player") as a lineman in the NFL. That didn't stop him from being late on 33 property-tax payments. But that's not even his most notable tax issue (or at least not his strangest). For years, Runyan has had a handful of miniature donkeys grazing on his property, helping him avoid paying the full tax rate on 20 out of his 23 acres of land.

2) Earlier this year WMUR in New Hampshire reported that Democratic Rep. Ann McLane Kuster owed nearly $11,000 in late property-tax bills. The television station also noted that Kuster has been delinquent on more than $40,000 in property taxes over the past three years. And it's not because she's poor. The Center of Responsive Politics estimated her net worth to be around $1.8 million.

3) Rep. Jim Renacci, R-Ohio, has been dogged by his fair share of tax issues over the years. The former car salesman was assessed nearly $1.4 million in unpaid state taxes, interest, and fees in 2006, according to the Associated Press. Last year, Renacci's opponent former Rep. Betty Sutton made a big deal of the Republican's attempt to "avoid paying taxes on nearly $14 million" (italics ours), a statement that was rated "true" by Politifact.

4) Rep. Vern Buchanan of Florida may be the champion of IRS problems in the House of Representatives. Between 1994 and 2002 the Republican found himself in the midst of a tax fight that ended up costing him about $2.5 million ($1.2 million for what he originally owed, plus another $1.3 in late fees and interest). Buchanan has also found himself swimming in an alphabet soup of investigating offices over the years (DOJ, FBI, IRS, FEC).

5) Fellow Floridian Rep. Steve Southerland too has been late on his fair share. The Republican's company Machrise paid property taxes on a number of properties late at least 27 times from 1995 to 2012.

Bolding mine. Laughter and eye-rolling mine as well.

I know that simply being late isn't the same as "cheating", but several of those involve attempts to straight up not pay their taxes

However, Gbaji plainly said "any of a number of things which would get any Republican thrown out" so he is welcome to list some of THOSE things since the rest of the list "obviously" doesn't count. I invite him to list, oh say, maybe three things that get "any Republican thrown out" but Democrats enjoy with impunity. Naturally, for these to hold weight you would expect an example of a Democrat and Republican both engaged in the action and the Republican getting the boot.


Um... let's see:

1. Being Gay. Yes. This shouldn't be a scandalous thing, but when a Republican is gay, or might be gay, he's hounded by liberal media groups looking for even the slightest sign of impropriety and exaggerate and manipulate the facts to create a scandal (see: Mark Foley). Meanwhile Democrats like say Barney Frank can actually have sex with underaged interns and suffer no ill effects at all.

2. Racist Behavior. Hard to find just one example of this. It's another one of those media perception issues. If a Republican says something that can even possibly be interpreted in a racial manner, it will be and it will become an outrage. And while the RNC will fight against cases where it's exaggeration and media spin going on, when there's a clear case of someone crossing the line (like Jim Allen, who you should be familiar with), he's asked to resign. Meanwhile, you have laundry list of Democrats who have said things as offensive or even moreso and have suffered no ill effect. Joe Biden (multiple times). Hillary Clinton. Dick Harpootlian (his comments towards Haley were at least as offensive as those uttered by Allen. To be fair, he wasn't holding office at the time he said those comments, but the volume of crickets chirping from the media about this was pretty amazing).

The racism one alone could probably be its own topic of discussion. It's a massive double standard.

3. Sexual Harassment/Affairs in the workplace. Speaking specifically of sexual activity directed towards a subordinate in the workplace. This is another with a laundry list of incidents. Now I can't say that every single Republican accused of such things have resigned (nor that no Dems have resigned), but a clear example of this would be say Sen Ensign, who resigned after having an affair with a campaign staffer. The contrast would be the big ol obvious case of Clinton having an affair with Monica Lewinski (and not resigning). Gary Condit is another example. And of course Filner's refusal to resign despite overwhelming evidence against him.

The pattern with regard to this one is that Democrats almost never resign unless they're actually convicted of a crime. And they are far less likely to receive pressure from within their own party to do so.


I'm sure you'll be able to find exceptions to these if you look hard enough. But I'm talking about a general trend that Democrats don't hold their own members to the same standards that they hold Republicans, while Republicans tend to hold both parties to the same standard. It's a combination of how the media covers (or doesn't cover) the story, to how the party response, to how the rank and file voters respond. It's a pattern that's hard to ignore.

Then you're remarkably poor spoken because that's the opposite of an absolute term like "any Republican".

No, I think that was more the creep attempts at boy fucking than the being gay part. If Foley had just been your run of the mill 15% of the GOP congressional population that's a closeted self hating gay, I'm sure he'd have been fine. Or, you know if he'd been an openly gay GOP elected congressman...ahahahaha sorry, couldn't make it to the end of that one. Boy you idiots hate the gays. Good thing they don't have any influence in US culture.

You're blaming liberal media for republican gay men scandals?! Smiley: lol You've got to be trolling.

All's I can add is that if so much of the Republican failure is to be blamed on Democrats, then their successes must be credited to the Dems too.

Does it suck to belong to a political party that's so dependent on another party?

Yeah, I didn't even bother with that post. Backlash against gay Republicans is all because of liberals and the GOP has to defend racism among Republicans because the liberal media blows it out of proportion.
