      1. An Indirect Cut Is A Cut Nonetheless

      3. Sounds exactly like most "compassionate conservative" phony excuses…

      …for stomping on the weakest and least powerful of our citizens. Heartless and evil.

      Do you agree with this Draconian shit?

        4. I'm not the author of the USA piece that is in this report

        I am just passing along the article. If that is a problem, gosh I’m sorry. I will simply go away now.

          5. Gosh, no one is asking you to "simply go away."

          You made no comment on the article. How were we supposed to know what your opinion of it was?

            6. No need to worry

            I won’t be bothering anyone here anymore.

              7. That's certainly your choice.

              I would have simply answered the question myself. Different strokes for different folks.

              8. I certainly hope you don't really mean this

              You are a highly valued poster here.

              14. Please reconsider.

              I’m sorry that your post was responded to in the manner it was.

              You are such a valuable part of the JackpineRadicals family. And someone I consider a friend. I would hate to see you leave. :hug:

      9. Well Sherman

      I’d like to read the story you deleted.  If you’d care to pm me the link, I’d like that.

      There are many topics/stories posted here that get the ol’ shove the shit out of here treatment, because it doesn’t gel with everyone’s identity political delusions.

      But I’m interested.  I come to JPR sometimes to consolidate my reading. It helps with me having to look for more resources, which takes time.  My time is limited so I rely on posters who put up different articles/news stories so I can determine (read that as think for myself) what is really happening.  Some people have no tolerance of anything that doesn’t fit in their itty bitty little programmed paradigm brains and what the MSM has told them to think.

      Then they get… “Oh your leaving?”  What did I do or say…?”  Like they didn’t show their disdain, because you Sir might make them step out of their comfortable box and think. That is a sin Sherman in their minds.

        10. Thank you.

        I didn’t see the article but find the personal nature of the reaction to it troubling.

        13. This is the article that was posted

        http://www.ksdk.com/ext/news/nation-now/heres-the-truth-about-meals-on-wheels-in-trumps-budget/63/nationnow/23y3d2qz8Q26k8IKOOwokC

        The decision to delete was Sherman’s, not any admin or mod.

        While I hate people making assumptions on what a poster thinks when just the article is posted without comment, it is not unreasonable to ask. It is unreasonable to assume.

        I’ve defended quite a few posters who caught shit for informing.

        Your post, however, is doing more than assuming. It is a broad brush attack on both the site and its members.

        There are hardly any posts here that have been removed because of source. In fact, out of the tens of thousands of Topics posted here, only about 0.01785714% have been removed. That’s a fact.

          16. Why Mary! I'm surprised at you

          You don’t have to defend your web site.  You of course can do whatever you see fit.  Why in the world would you think that?  I was referring to various members assault on various news media articles that run contrary to their way of viewing things, and how they attack the poster vs the article.  Those actions of which I’m speaking of has an adverse affect on what gets posted here.  People who feel they are attacked for what they posted have a tendency to leave rather discuss rationally what was posted. Hence, others will post less and less because they do not care to be attacked.  Then you will end up with only the same ones posting over and over again until your pages will be filled up with a minority of posters.  All the names will begin to look the same day in and day out.

            20. I am sorry that you see so many "attacks" that don't get reported.

            When you see these attacks, please report them.
