One More Time

We've been here before.

Unlike many other sites, I welcome readers to comment on this blog -- whether they agree with its contents or not. However, I am receiving a growing volume of complaints about the tone of a couple of the commenters (you know who you are) who demean themselves and this blog by writing not to debate, but simply to insult and denigrate.

Whoever you are and whatever your views, you are welcome here -- but only as long as you keep your comments on point, civil in tone, and intended either to further debate or serve some other useful purpose.

Being on the other side of the political fence does mean that I will disagree with Carol quite sharply on issues - but at least I make comments that are not anonymous.

Anyone can click on my username and view my blog. There you will see my full name, my political and religious beliefs set out, blog posts that I have written and even a picture of what I look like.

I am not afraid of making my voice heard. That's why I don't post under anonymous pseudonyms. I'm happy to get emailed by Carol if I say anything she gets upset about.

The lesson is - don't be cowards. If you make a comment, allow readers to find out about who you are by having a real blog site.

Good point, Salient.

But let's also be civil.

We can disagree sharply and still not call each other names, etc.

I agree totally. My Blog is posted in my profile. ANYone can see where I stand on anything. I have gotten tired of the personal attacks. I freely apologize to all if I have been insensitive.

Lets all take this break and enjoy MS. Liebau's excellent site as a place to freely enijoy our differences.

My blog really does not have much to do with my political point of view, it is more of a personal journal. My husband also gets the opportunity to read what his wife is thinking, doing, and feeling. It is very calming to me.
I disagree about the necessity for making yourself so open. I protect my privacy. I do not need everyone in the world to know where I am, what I look like, and that I am home alone with young children. I think it is fine if others do, but not me.

I really enjoy reading the comments of some of the posters. There are some very intelligent people who know what they are talking about and they post things in a positive manner. I do have other sites I go to for news, but I rarely read the comments of others on those sites because they are often nasty and serve no purpose.

Amber, I meant nothing negative. If I offended, please forgive me! Perhaps a bit of everpresent foot in mouth disease on my part?

I did not take any offense. That is fine. Oversight just said he thought we should let it all hang out, but as a woman in rural America with a deployed spouse, I don't think that would be really wise for me. That was all.

With all do respect, I think Carol is the one who is most guilty of cheap shots, insult and denigrating anyone who isn't a republican or necon. In seven days she creates more than a page of lefty this and lefty that attacks. And no matter what Bush does, giving Iran nuclear technology or torturing prisoners is just perfectly okay.

This is her site. She can do what she wants but this is not a personal journal like Amber mentioned before. This is her political site that she promotes and she is a political analyst.

There is not much difference between Anne Coulter and Carol except that Anne is in the public where she has to answer tough questions.

I only came to this site a few days ago. I'm not sure I'll be here very long because Carol is just spewing GOP talking points in a Rovian manner.

I don't enjoy hate filled talk such as that of Hannity and Limbaugh. So perhaps I'm a little more sensitive to the things Carol writes. I'm not a lefty but unlike Carol, there is no longer a reason the give Bush the benefit of the doubt. He is no Ronald Reagan.

I also don't think one should promote killing of hundreds of thousands of people, more wars and the destruction of the UN while claiming to be a good Christian and hiding behind the Bible.
