      I don't think it would be especially diary-worthy. The diary itself implies that Putin is an authority that we should listen to. Otherwise, what's the need for the diary? If you know the sky is blue, why do you need Putin?

      And it would be nice if the situation was as simple as "the sky is blue," but it's slightly more complex than that...as are most things.

      I don't mind if you're straight. Just don't flaunt it in public.

      •  You now have a problem with the remarks of (6+ / 0-)

        world leaders being reported if they're on your double-plus ungood list?

        When people get a hungry on for a CNN Explod-A-Vision special, they sure do get grumpy at the slightest hint their show might get canceled.

            used to support your claim that a world leader making cogent, timely remarks is being exalted in this diary.

            I'm simply not convinced by your generic, blanket dismissal.

            This all started with "what the Republicans did to language".

            •  That's okay. (0+ / 0-)

              I'll decline. If you're simply not convinced after reading the diary that Putin's remarks are being put on a pedestal here, I'm not going to be able to convince you.

                you made a false claim and can't support it now.

                    here won't be taken seriously. Essentially, you're wasting your time continuing to comment when you refuse to support your own statements with anything other than vomit.

                    You do understand that too, don't you?

                      I leave this diary, I am not interested in proving my credibility to you. I will let the tippers or non-tippers decide if my comment is correct. I am not providing "evidence" to you.

                      Also, I get it, my comments are vomit. Really, we all get it.

                        you're not interested in your own personal cred. You're taking one for the Team! What you appeared to be interested in was the idea that you could fling fact-free nonsense around to "kill the messenger".

                        You must! That's what you're interested in--smearing anyone that doesn't support your idiotic "war" and insane "leadership", without being called out for making shit up.

                        Ooops!

                          Using your words, "Please demonstrate the language used to support your claim..." that Chrislove in this specific thread says he supports war in Syria (your words to him: "your war"). Seems to me he was just questioning Putin's moral standing, and it caused your head to explode in a bullying "STFU and get out of here if you don't agree with me" kind of way.

                            I didn't reply because I said I wasn't going to, but this really does need addressing. Just to be clear, though, I don't even know where I stand on intervention, and it certainly can't be said that I support it at this point in time with the amount of information I have. I was only addressing Putin's moral standing in this discussion.

                            Thanks, CDH in Brooklyn.

                        Arguing with her brings it all home. How utterly meaningless, sad and devoid of any purpose it is to sit here and waste time and  listen to ad homs and insults of a complete and utter anonymous person on the internet. Just so damn tedious and meaningless. And accomplishes absolutely nothing other than sucking up time meant for family, loved ones, friends, pets, and helping others.

                        Other than community or activism diaries...I think I' realized this nonsense is just that. Pure nonsense for people who need to talk to strangers on the net , mainly by trying to suck people into their world with name calling, insults and flames. That's sad. The best thing to do is what you just did.
