Lookingfortruth's "Absurd" Rant ;-)

29 posts in this topic

So -----You post a reply without blocking me from seeing it... While at the same time blocking a response... What an ego….

What a coward!

Time for some serious talking…….

Absurd!.. I’m absurd.. Do you hear yourself?….do you realise what you are saying?. I’m absurd.

First did you properly understand the quote? Or simple deduce that Absurdum means Absurd not comprehending the full and proper meaning.

an argument which seeks to demonstrate that a statement is true by showing that a false, untenable, or absurd result follows from its denial

Got it yet?

… They and you may not like it but what I said was true the video was “A” typical of the image many have of Americans…Crass, loud , brash, rude, arrogant BRAINLESS etc. True or not that’s your image.

Remember Brookline? good example…did you notice the three youths at the Ryder Cup.. Naked from the waste up with US flags painted on their chests. Another good real life example….Not to mention the miss it calls..Very nice!

So when I pointed out the truth………This from memory is what we got in response…

“Go hang yourself“ ….“Challenges to my grammar and spelling” The fact that we spell the correct way I might add.. ( not dubbed down for the idiots of America way )… escaping the writers attention.. “Conveniently“… …and the best of all… The guy who gives a long list of countries he has been welcomed in while stating it was like I had a kick me sign when I went to Scotland.. Ho Hum the Muppet NEVER was in Scotland... Big body small brain all of them I bet….I make a statement they know they can’t defend so they go off message….Yes!

In the interests of balance one chap did have the common sense to compare us to old Tom Morris... At lease he made an effort at a tongue in cheek retort.. What he obviously missed, was that Tom Morris and his kind were gentlemen with manners and etiquette. Get the point yet?

Demonstrate to me please. “I dare you“. Where I “started” any of the above individual responses with an absurdity.

And finally.....

I see you claim to be a Pro…. Is that a club pro who makes a living selling Mars bars and fizzy drinks? ..Or a range Pro. Who wastes his Sundays weeping as he tries to teach a bunch of 20+ handicappers with swings like an octopus playing the Bagpipes. How they might get the club back to the ball two times in a row….

I post a goodbye and here we are with you still trying to be offensive and determined to have last word.

That your thing is it? …I must have the last word….. Did you truly understand the Latin.. I mean all of it?

God save America “””from its own people”””

One last point what about the guy who said why did I mention Syria…Come on, even you have to admit that’s a humdinger. ( In case you didn’t notice I never mentioned Syria at any time. )

Enjoy your golf.

Firstly…I have time to do this because it’s raining and very windy outside so Sunday Medal has been cancelled…. Also I like to annoy the feeble of mind as they try everything to avoid the issue in question.

Instead of constantly trying to shoot the messenger… Try developing a cogent defence of the statement I made. That the Video. Golf Stereotypes which one are you…Represents to most a stereotypical image of Americans. Answer that!… It may be true it may be false.. but that was the original statement by me. That everyone has failed to respond to.

I.T.H.. Note: You cannot rant with the written word…It is an oral expression….Nice avatar and nom de plume…probably sums you up.. and someone called me a paedophile. Yes on a golf Forum talking golf someone called me a Paedophile. Only in America. No comment then on the posts of your countrymen? Once again no cogent argument so a selective pointless reply…Maybe were glad your ancestors left Scotland...You see how that kind of ststement can be trurned against you. Your IQ  lower than your Handicap? Yes!

MizunoPez. Of course you haven’t it was not address to you…Why didn’t you just ignore it?

ABU3. go to "Golf Stereotypes which one are you"…

Enjoy your golf.

Lookingfortruth, we have only one real rule here: act like an adult.

In other words, don't be an ass, don't be a jerk, don't attack other people, etc.

You were an ass. A jerk. You attacked others. You failed to act like an adult.

So you were restricted from the thread.

And now you're in the penalty box.

P.S. I know what Latin phrases mean. Thank you.

What brought it on was a new member from Scotland (aka the OP) going to DEFCON 5 and hurling epic insults at Americans on an American Golf forum.  He highjacked a funny thread after someone responded to his half sarcastic statement stating that Euros think of Americans as the Golf Stereotypes.  People, including me, responded with humor.  Instead of staying funny, he began the insults and flame war that he now acts the victim of.  He then played the "I'm rich and drive a Mercedes" line, which was truly juvenile.  Unfortunately, one of our long time members got caught up in this Junior High rant fest, which I am sure he regrets.

I have traveled all over the world and met many wonderful people from just about everywhere.  There are also jerks everywhere, but thankfully they are the minority.

The guy tossed the initial salvo by calling Americans "muppets" (which apparently is a huge insult in Scotland?).  One guy responded in kind (way over the top), and he (Truth guy) started ranting and raving and carrying on, pointing the finger at anybody and refusing to accept responsibility for his own actions.  And then he starts this thread.

Makes me wonder if he's one of those guys that comes home from work talking about how everybody in his office workplace is insane, whereas everybody he works with goes home talking about the one guy in their office that's insane?

    • XE1 Wedge: Have you tried it?
      It may be great but at what cost?  Not willing to lose my dignity to possibly save a shot or two.  Plus I love my jaws wedges with the md grooves. Straight ?. 
    • Donald Trump for president?
      Well said Mr.  Desmond the funny thing in all this is that somehow poor people support Trump against their own best interest. And call bernie a communist despite not really knowing what that or socialism is or the difference between the two. 
    • Donald Trump for president?
      Bernie says the system is rigged - stats since the 1980's prove that a great amount of wealth has shifted towards a very small percentage of people. Does that not concern you?  Walmart employs people with such small wages that their people are on welfare, so the argument goes that Walmart is a huge beneficiary of living off the government tit. As to Bernie's war against financial institutions, can you doubt that Wall St helped out the 2007 Depression? Completely irresponsible behavior based on greed. Hedge fund managers get capital gains rate on their compensation? Ridiculous. How many people do you know make over $10M on ordinary income? That is where he proposes a 52% tax that become 73% when one adds SS and Single Payer taxes, and then you have the state income tax, so it would get high. And it is too high, but he would not get that through Congress unless we truly had a revolution and all the Dems came out to vote for the revolution. If all Dems vote, Pubs lose except in areas so gerryrmandered that the one party it favors will always win. Bernie on guns? He won't take away guns, it's not in his record. Bernie is not snake oil -- Bernie and Trump are here because of the last 30 years of growing inequity, political correctness and divisiveness. If we do not address it with traditional politics, then eventually people will wake up and vote their interests, which would be Sanders  or a similar politician. It is time for change, the last 30 years have been tough on all levels of the lower and middle classes while the upper class have the "let them eat cake" attitude. That only takes one so far before people vote for big change. I asked a 20 something the other night who she likes, Trump, Cruz, Sanders, Clinton - I said Clinton would work with the other side, Bernie wants a pipedream - she said "I want Bernie." I just said if you want Bernie, you better get out the vote because it will take a lot of young people to do it. Before I am "labeled" again, I don't think any candidates in either party are to my liking. But I think we do need incremental change ... now to reverse some of the last 30 years and renew the American Dream -- it should be for all, not 1%.
    • Anyone enjoying the drink tonight?
      Hopslam last night, just released by Bells.  Best beer in a can, which used to only be in a bottle.  
    • How do I organize a charity tournament to be a raging success?
      Try and get individuals to contribute.  If you have a hundred golfers each contributing a hundred dollars, that is 10,000$.  Easier sometimes than convincing a business to contribute say 5,000$.  The second thing is make it a fun family day with some events post the round.  Your spouse and kids will enjoy the day and you are more likely to spend some money.  Say a stall selling small knick-knacks or stuff for kids etc. Sad that you can get a stroke at 26, but why can't they figure out what is wrong with her anyway
