1. Do you think shills like this actually fully believe what they are saying? Or is it an act?

2. Why do you think they are unable or unwilling to think independently? And which is it: unable or unwilling?

I'm still trying to figure out why you call them/us  "shills".

I don't see why you think that they/we need to change our point of view.  Why do you believe that we aren't thinking independently?  Do you think that they/we should think as you do?

I know that you didn't name me for either side, but you also know that I'm pretty well set-in-my ways of Republican thought.  I got that way when I was about 30 y.o. after having spent my 20's as pretty much the liberal thought socially.  Then I discovered that I could keep and follow my liberal-type social views and be a Republican, and I have been that basically up to and including today.  I did make one mistake of voting for a dem Senator years ago, and then found out he was lying, so that was the end of that.

The people on LNF are all very interested in politics and most of us have strong beliefs, no matter which side of the aisle we belong because of those strong beliefs.  I post here because I don't want to ruin my personal friendships with people whose strong political beliefs come from the left side of the aisle.

No one is saying that you or anyone else needs to change your views. My point is that shills render themselves irrelevant because they expose themselves as nothing more than political hacks. Shills have no credibility because they have no sense of objectivity. They just blindly follow whatever their chosen political party says.

It is hard for Jas to embrace her bigoted attitudes.  Basically, Jas is just a racist that can't admit it.

Waddy, the racism bus should have left the station a long time ago, but people like you are still stuck in drive, and sitting in the back seat.

Thank you, Jaz!

That's a heartfelt complement and I do appreciate it. 

I tried the standard path. It wasn't for me. I'm much happier living the life I am.

The standard path isn't for everyone. In fact, is there really such a thing as a "standard path"? People are different, and we all take different approaches in life. Never let people like Harry make you feel ashamed of your choices in taking care of your family.

Jas, you are not that pastisan.  You are very racist, however.  The only reason you lean right is because like most racist, that is the party of perference.

Yes, I heard about this. Just goes to show McLame’s true loyalties. Hopefully, I will go to his funeral very, very soon.

Okay, whatever you say, Waddy. I just wanted to get that "back of the bus" line in. Smiley

I disagree with a lot of Jasmine's positions but she ain't no partisan and, more importantly, she's honest. Blind partisans aren't honest and suppress/deny the cognitive dissonance. I'm partisan, but try to keep an eye on my blind spots and will readily admit, even welcome, changing a position based on information. The information has to be true though, and not merely spin, which is far too prevalent when it comes to politics.

I'm much like you, Mojo. I'm partisan (who here isn't?), but I try to be fair and, as you say, "keep an eye on my blind spots." In fact, that was a great way to put it.

Ahem.

The only time I believed Jasmine is when she agreed that nobody should trust anything she says.

Other than that, this thread shows she's even more arrogant and deluded than Trump.
