I don't really know the meaning of passive aggression, but it's a great offense which is an adequate substitute for a rational defense.

"Though no federal statistics are kept on murders or any other crimes committed by illegal aliens, a number of groups have produced estimates based on data collected from prisons, news reports and independent research.

Twelve Americans are murdered every day by illegal aliens, according to statistics released by Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa. If those numbers are correct, it translates to 4,380 Americans murdered annually by illegal aliens. That’s 21,900 since Sept. 11, 2001.

Total U.S. troop deaths in Iraq as of last week were reported at 2,863. Total U.S. troop deaths in Afghanistan, Pakistan and Uzbekistan during the five years of the Afghan campaign are currently at 289, according to the Department of Defense."

No, you're right on that one...those statistics are skewed, and I try not to use skewed statistical data.

Not quite sure why I wouldn't say this, but oh well.

I mean, I can talk about the ratio of deaths due to automobile accidents compared to soldier deaths in Iraq...does it mean anything?

Actually, my post was a direct parody of the "sig" you used for so long about the Iraqi deaths. The one the Johns Hopkins anti-war boys did; the one which so famously damaged the reputation of "The Lancet" because the stats and sampling didn't stand up. Bzzzzzt.

Oh, fer pity's sake...look at the thead title. It's supposed to be...humorous...hello?

Instead of diverting the thread with a stupid flyby remark, you COULD always start up a new thread on the topic of the Lancet study, since you're so sure it's been disproven. You wouldn't be the first to try and disprove it with sketchy and partisan stabs, and I'm sure you won't be the last, either.

But then, of course, you know you'd get slammed...again (with you on the other end, patently denying what's in front of your nose, as usual).

P.S. How's that hunt for those anti-Semitic comments I made, going? Any luck yet?

P.S. How's that hunt for those anti-Semitic comments I made, going? Any luck yet? Well, hold on, Neil. You need to understand that the only reason I said I didn't want to debate anymore with you is simply because you have the worst case of Confirmation Bias in your arguments of anyone I've ever seen. I'll let you look it up. Even with the liberal Washingtop Post on record, having openly indicated that Wilson got caught in fibs (Cheny sent him? He gave the wrong appraisal in the New York Times editorial) you continue to insist on an absurd interpretation, just as you do in all of your arguments.

The second indicator is watching what you do when asked direct questions or in the direct questions you ask. You almost always use the known tactic that is watched for in lying... you go for the famous "tangential answer". It's the sort of trick that Justin Smith uses when Cady tries to tell him that he'd doing inappropriate forum behavior. The same sort of tangential shift is seen when you ask questions... "where did I slander Jews?". No one has accused you of "slandering Jews", Neil.

If you want to have have good conversations, be honest and be factual. Even people who feel the same as you about aspects of politics and history are often forced to avoid association because of your untruthful hyperbole.

My comments about the Lancet publications (both of them in regard to the self-proclaimed anti-war activists from Johns Hopkins) were absolutely correct. YOU used false statistics, deliberately and knowingly. The humour is in your decrying someone for using false statistics. ;)

Mike Sigman

Blah blah blah. Really, Mike, I don't care what your "reasons" are for not debating me (as, everyone knows the real reason). The only thing I care about is that you honor a certain element of reciprocity here (for once) and give me the same respect that you ask me to give to you.

Until then, you can expect me to reveal to the reader how hypocritical, racist and erroneous your posts usually are.

No one has accused you of "slandering Jews", Neil.

Oh, gods, you are so easy. I got these after only checking this very thread after a few seconds:

Your rants are purely anti-American and anti-Jew... very trendy; very California; very Santa Cruz.

I.e..... where is the balance in your discussions? We already know you hate the Jooz.

So when I point it out that you're anti-American (and anti-Jew) you do the only thing you can do

And on and on and...

No Mike, if you want to get technical: you weren't accusing me of slandering the Jews--you were accusing me of something worse, as well as unprovable. You were accusing me of actually hating the Jews. And since you cannot possibly know what I am thinking or why, based simply on my posts here: I'd say that your charges are beyond specious, and enter into abusive country.

But I suppose that this latest exercise in mendacity just means that you've thrown in the towel in the prospect of finding ANY post of mine that you could call anti-Jewish. Ah well, to be expected.

If you want to have have good conversations, be honest and be factual

Please, Mike, the whole of aikiweb is calling on you to SAY THIS IN FRONT OF A MIRROR. You might be doing a good job of fooling yourself, but most of the rest of us here are gifted with adult faculties, and adult reading levels. Anyone who follows the threads knows who leaves out significant portions of the truth, and who doesn't.

Even people who feel the same as you about aspects of politics and history are often forced to avoid association because of your untruthful hyperbole.

You see, Mike, I don't need to feel secure in myself by labelling others. You should try it sometime. I don't need to go around and try to stereotype ppl, or box them into categories, because I don't understand them.

My comments about the Lancet publications (both of them in regard to the self-proclaimed anti-war activists from Johns Hopkins) were absolutely correct.

Because you said so, of course. If you're so right, then start up a new thread (instead of slinging baseless claims, per your usual fare), instead of your usual baseless blather, and weak attempts at thread diversion.

YOU used false statistics, deliberately and knowingly. The humour is in your decrying someone for using false statistics. ;)

Regards,

Mike Sigman

The humor (and the sadness) is in one man who thinks he's some sort of "moral policeman" on AW, just because he derides everyone who disagrees with him and habitually calls these ppl "Jew-haters," and "anti-US."

It's about that time for someone to accuse the other of hating america ;)

Nah, I'll leave the name-calling in Mikey's court, where it usually resides.

The main reason I even call him anti-American is that he's anti-at-least-ONE-American...me. ;)

We return you now to your program, and apologize for the interruption. :cool:

I don't appreciate the diversion, any more than you. It's one of Mike's signature ploys.

I appreciate even less, is prepeatedly being compared as the exact opposite of Mike, whose racist posts are discussed elsewhere.
