    That’s quite the selective history, but it seems short of substantiation.

    There seems to be a correlation between liberal attitudes, self misery, and petulance.

    It's amazing how much panic one honest man can spread among a multitude of hypocrites.

    You need to up your trolling game. This is a mediocre attempt at best.

    Ok. Here's one:

    Curious from a person who also recently posted about retribution.

    Comments without substantiation are also without credibility.

    The member in question has from time to time issued a small and insincere bleat about 'making this place better'. For a person who claims to have been a US warmonger ranking officer you would be forgiven perhaps for expecting a little leadership. However, evidence of any leadership qualities at all are not in evidence.
    TSherbs - about employment criticisms… I think you missed this one.

    EoC - leadership has a vast toolbox. Maybe Google “NCO as a hand grenade”, and see if you can find the maybe 25 year old article from The NCO Journal. You’re much like the troublesome private that can’t find his way out of the 5 meter zone.

    More than you are capable of imagining. Look how I've got you reacting, just from posting a few quotes and offering a hypothesis.

    Yet we see this obsessive posting from the same guy who said (among other things):

    “I have no real interest in the writings of people who are inherently dishonest. So, whatever.”

    Seems like a lot of effort expended for that. I wonder why…

    You’re confused. I’m not on your train. I’m watching the train wreck.

    You don't have me reacting. I am following a specific course of action that is independent of what you write, but that allows me to incorporate anything that crops up along the way. It is you that is dancin' to ma tune, but too stupid or too arrogant to see it. Also, far too arrogant to have noticed your own echo chamber. That's just embarrassing.
    Here we have a blatant example of the hypocrisy which exists among our sub-forum's "woke" contingent.

    EoC has repeatedly & somewhat gleefully used the term "dancin' to ma tune" throughout several threads now.

    Rest assured, had it been me, dneal, kazoolaw, etc. the woke gang would have all been up and down our yin-yangs accusing us of being racists, again. This phrase, as employed by EoC, is straight out of the black-face / minstrel era's playbook. One which relied heavily on African American vernacular English. Even us non-wokes appreciate why there is currently such sensitivity to something like this and yet our resident wokes just let EoC get away with it.

    We already have good evidence that EoC is a misogynist, the "p" word, and now, very legitimately, we can add a racist to our list.

    Agree woke brothers?? Or is this another opportunity to show off how well you can play your hypocrisy game??

    Wow! what a reach that is! A desperate attempt to find something to score points with and, as usual, coming up with nothing. It's a common expression. That I wrote it kinda how I said it doesn't change or add anything. Oh no, I used 'kinda' I must hide from the puppy-police. Dumbass
    Annnnd now we have cultural insensitivity & lack of awareness to add to the list.
    Just the perfect kind of person to be working in a university setting, isn't he?

Will save you attempting to think, as we know that's not your strong suit.
    This strikes me as being more of a self-reflection & personal assessment piece than a substantive reply. But if you are happy with it that's fine with me.

    I think you are being unfair with your "woke gang" accusations. What exactly do you think being "woke" means to us? Are we re-writing history?

    I agree. Laughing is a good thing.
    I don't mind if you were laughing at me as opposed to with me. It's only fair, I laugh at you guys all the time.

    What I find curious is that you and TSherbs have not registered either an agreement or my disagreement with my contention about the racist undertones of the phrase that EoC is liberally sprinkling throughout his posts. (With him, there always seems to be the word of the day, phrase of the day, issue of the day, etc., etc.) If you and Ted truly believe what you say about racism, unconscious bias, the need for CRT, etc., etc. you simply cannot deny that the posts are racist.

    On the other hand, if your convictions are only for grandstanding and political convenience, you shouldn't worry about allowing that to come out. I think a huge number of the current outspoken group of "woke" people fall into that category.

    You may wonder why my comments are directed towards only you & TSherbs. Simple. Candy / Chuck is a mere lemming. They will hold off until you guys take your position and then agree. Every time they try to think for themselves all they do is dig themselves deeper into the hole they have created.
