PostPosted: Wed Apr 27, 2011 8:37 am    Post subject: DFP = Philosophical Gnat Reply with quote

The guantlet has been thrown by forum member DFP "desparate for preponderance" (a superiority in weight, power, importance, or strength). The forum member, who stated he or she can shoot down every argument, questioned my integrity and experience then claimed I have no credibility.

However, there are quite a few forum members worth reading and the content and context is an identification. There are some with different views and the exchanges are informative and enjoyable... but then there are pretenders, the limited ones such as DFP who boldly said it's on its third degree. Which means little, unless the studies are engineering, science, medicine, important things rather than studying for the sake of a mediocre degree to impress and brag about, maybe get a government job as a teacher of let's say Political Science to change the views.

Education is about reading, listening, absorbing, critical thinking, and experience to be able to communicate through writing and/or verbally.

The light-weight's ontology (nature of being in metaphysics) can be summarized as a GNAT — a biting fly. Once the fly bites it risks being squished with a slap of the hand or swatter. That basically is the metaphor for the annoying DFP

I don't have to hide behind an acronym or a cybersapce name.

The following quotes started on the Obama scam thread.

http://www.bloggingtories.ca/forums/topic9998.html

oh you mean your background as a failed mature student in creative writing, or perhaps you mean your background in appearing in shopper's drug mart commercials? You don't possess credentials that lend you any credibility, Ed.

Your anecdote regarding your interaction with Bernard Lewis doesn't hold up. I asked you a rather simple question about the date in question where you claimed there'd be "civil war" you haven't bothered to say where there'd be civil war.


******

I haven't insulted your intelligence ol' timer, I merely asked you a rather direct question, and you have to date been unable to provide anything close to an answer. Of course I'm going to take you down a notch when you're avoiding two specific issues. When you said it - as chronology is crucial to the understanding of an event. Who/Where/ What you were referring to when you stated there'd be "civil war."

Or have actually thought you had a grownup mind capable of discerning between this holy war/jihad stuff? Is that what you meant by "civil war"


********

And your rather pathetic follow-up "if I was important" LOL the gall.

As far as "red star" marking I believe they stopped doing that in your time when McCarthyism was prevalent. I'm currently on my third degree, all in good standing, and guess what Ed, I can take criticism from my profs!


I posted my web page that DFP obviously scanned through and read my resume. All facts can be verified and references checked. But not DFP's because the gnat fears being metaphorically and realistically flattened. No credentials.

Of course, there are others who might agree with DFP on some points, but the majority of people are conseravtive, some faction of conservatism; whereas DFP is of the left and has become somehwat unhinged like an anarchist or a salivating Marxist/Leninist socialist/commie. What are they teaching at the university the gnat attends?

I await comments from forum members who have also been insulted or are capable of challenging the insignificant fly.

blah blah blah blah

You can't answer a simple question, your point raised on the particular topic is simply going to be dismissed.

End of story.

Ha! Can't take it.

Ergo such literary eloquence. Few will take you seriously any longer if they ever did.

Interested and concerend conservative forum members, perhaps it's time for the gnat to start its own blog, website, forum where it will attract other metaphorical insects.

My best advice to the flea is to try not to mess with Sagebrush James because it is out of its league.

From here on in if anybody has a problem with its intellectual comments let me know. I have words ready in a can of Raid.

Haha Ed you're losing it.

"My best advice to the flea is to try not to mess with Sagebrush James because it is out of its league."


10,000 leagues below the sea is where you've been hiding all this time? Gee, it's no wonder your hyperbole and discourse - forget your reasoning abilities - is stuck in a perpetual downward spin. I guess age will do that, and I don't blame you for it, I'll be there some day just the same. In any case, this discussion has degenerated into the puerile realm of tit-for-tat. You may derive some kind of value from this, I see it as a complete waste of time for both of us. All I ever requested was a simple defense of your claim and you were unable to do so.

I enjoy discussing these things on here, and from time to time there's some decent things being said, but all this wild speculation and rhetoric can get old quickly when specific references, credible sources, or at least something backing up an argument is discarded for reasons unknown to me. I try to balance out the length of my posts with a presentation of the relevant source for what I'm talking about, if you find there's something lacking - tell me. If there's something I may not have considered - bring it up and the case might be that I may not have known about it or I may have weighed it against other relevant info and found it to be lacking. Who knows?

As far as my screen name goes, it's merely my initials. I keep my internet profile to a minimum on the web as I'm acutely aware of the various bugs that exist within this imperfect system. For example, I wrote an e-mail to a third party affiliate this morning mentioning a mutual friends name, and by the afternoon I was receiving spam messages (correctly filtered I might add) bearing the mutual friend's name as the sender but from a completely different address.

As far as the accreditation goes I have completed an HBA in English and History (combined) from McGill, an MA in international affairs from Tufts, and am currently working on a BSW. I see far more value in working at the behest of the needs of the community then I have experienced in this nasty business of pandering to the international spectacle. You may consider it naïve or just idealistic that I think a bottoms up approach is more effective, but that's not really your call right?

As I stated DFP is a flake, a snowflake melting... melting... melting...

Ah for the Community. Which community? Something like Barack Obama's type Community? That explains why you favour another inexperienced Community Organizer/Supposed-Sincere-Worker.

You have done little compared to the majority of people on this once respectable forum. When you have accomplished something perhaps others will bother reading your comments.

Quite right Don... My Main Humorous and Astute Young Man...

I have a fairly long list of accomplishments in several occupations and a few failures, which happens with most risky ventures. However, I have always had the entrepreneurial spirit, regardless. Plus many of my truly successful clients in the past were autodidacts, they had learned for themselves without formal education, yet they were wise enough to learn from others.

Understanding is a key word.

Thank you for popping in and counter-commenting for the old Sagebrush... a sage with a rolling mind. By the way, I once was a performance-art-poet as well, and knocked them out in Los Angeles with a one man show before the rap and poets who could really recite and perform. Here is an example of one of my simple poems that has received high regards that you would appreciate. I hope.

Our Ontology Is A Rhapsody

Of epic proportions

Of love and loss

Of sadness and solace

Of want and invention

Of brave deeds and everyday problems

Of laughter and dance

Of progeny and cycles

Of insight and wonder

Of the human journey…

Egads such profound insight and magnificent wit accumulated through such limitless accumulation of accomplishments as an untendered playwright, an extra in a commercial, and a late-night poet on open-mic nights down on fairfax avenue, Edmund. Tell me how it is you've come to possess such sagely wisdom into the human condition when you appear to have done nothing more than assumed the disposition of the Other. No, not even that of the Other, a sham attempt at mimicry is all that you've accomplished in your time. You preach endlessly about this sophistry that you've accrued over time, yet you possess the tact of a bitter old curmudgeon trying to get back at the world that steam-rolled itself over you year after year after year. The understanding of a tardy ignoramus and the values of a bigot. Your only refuge appears to be found in the fabricated spectacle of the performing arts, good on you for doing so, but please, don't preach like you know something of reality when you do a much much better job at preaching the illusory.


I can reasonably expect a response that follows along these lines, which is undoubtedly the saddest part about all this childish behaviour.

-you won't even come close to acknowledging anything contained in my response
-you will try to distract the issue by employing further disingenuous literary tropes
-you will unabashedly make false characterizations of me
-you will conclude by throwing out another one of your sage-induced paraboles to gain some inane moral high ground on the matter


As far as my desire to pursue work within the community, I see nothing wrong with this, and again I'm not at all surprised that you'd resort to petty and false characterizations to detract from my response. Personally, I feel it is important that I pursue work closer to home for one thing, it's about time I start thinking about setting down some roots as I'm been living far too long in the transient mode to appreciate the calmer and more intimate moments as much as I'd prefer. I have work-related experience from overseas that I could put forth on community development projects nearer to home. The BSW that I'm pursuing is merely a secondary pursuit that will enhance my approach to crafting a framework that takes a more accurate account of the multifaceted aspects that exist within any given community. I may even supplement that with some kind of law degree later on down the road if I feel I'd benefit from it (I find they get a lot easier to obtain once you have a graduate degree under your belt). Land management practices will be a specific area of focus of mine going forward as I used to be active in the Canadian forestry sector before electing to work/study outside of Canada.


Anything else you'd like to know Ed?

What a flowery and eloquent speech....damn and...to think - all I'm doing is fighting for Rights! In my way of thinking 'communications' have more to do with conveying ideas than comparing vocabulary skills....

DFP = socialist with commie tendencies.

My scrotum is itchy when I glanced at the limited one's obtuse comment. And a majority Conservative government must irritate the flea whose IQ is immeasurable.

Thank goodness for forum members such as Don Muntean who state things with natural wisdom.
