NC State recovered from early jitters to overcome a 10-0 deficit to beat Duke at home 31-20. The defense intercepted Duke three times to give the offense the chance to win the game.

    So, let's answer that personal attack.

    When today's leftists cannot win a fair argument, they resort to personal attack. They call people racists and other derogatory names. And in doing that, they reveal their bully boy nature. It doesn't work.

    My own race, has nothing at all to do with this discussion, and never has. Nor, for that matter, does this hatred shown by Jinx99 have anything to do with his race. Hate resides in one's heart, whether it's hate for others or even hate for oneself.

    Love of human liberty is the opposite of hate, for you must love people to want to see them live free. And, you must hate people to want to see them live in tyranny. Communism is tyranny, a flawed form of government that has been tried dozens of times across the globe and failed miserably everywhere it's been tried. It has always resulted in a brutal society, where people are forced to live in fear and adhere to a singular philosophy, ruled by a small oligarchy of pseudo-emperors, devoid of any honest challenge. Governments where people are jailed and tortured to death in secrecy.

    There is nothing at all pathetic about condemning a government system (Communism) that for the last 100 plus years has been responsible for more human death and misery than any other government system on the face of the earth. Where are the millions of people getting onboard rickety boats and heading across the ocean, risking death, to flee Constitutional Republics like the United States? Those people do not exist, because millions of people are not risking death to flee America, but instead to flee their Communist oppression and flee to the United States for sanctuary! That sanctuary is our Constitution, a set of laws that restrain and moderate the power of government, to keep government from becoming an instrument of tyranny. That Constitution is now under attack by America's leftists. That observation is called reality, not hate.

    This is why I replied to Jinx99. I first told him, when he made the false accusation of being banned, that a member must show integrity to tell the truth.

    Sharing the wealth is another code phrase for taking what someone has worked hard for and using the government to then give it to others as political patronage. That's how socialist systems work, until they finally run out of other peoples' money, and then those systems collapse, just like has recently happened in Venezuela. That observation isn't "McCarthyism," it's simple mathematics and economics. People don't wish to bust their butts working hard just to see some authoritarian system come along and rob them of it.

    But, thank you Jinx99 for making your affinity for Communism so clear.

    Something else I wrote. Those of us who believe in liberty are not going to silently endure seeing it abridged. We will fight to protect our liberties. And this website, that started so many years ago, now having been drawn in to the battle for our Constitution, will make our choice very clear. We will fight for liberty. We will fight to preserve our Constitution. We will fight to prevent America from being turned into another example of what happened in Venezuela. And, finally, we will fight using whatever methods of battle are required to defend our Constitution against those who wish to destroy it.

    Oh wow. Like magic. My posting privileges are back. Your cowardice DOES know some bounds. Thank you, Ken for restoring free speech to your board.

    Now please explain the litmus test you referred to way back when. I challenge you to do it in one paragraph or less. I will not respond to loooong winded diatribes about dead political issues from the 70's. I want you to explain one very simple rhetorical gem that you used. Spolier; I don't think you can, because while it sounds good in a 15 page diatribe of Faux News talking points. It doesn't mean anything substantive.

    Go Pack.

    I already explained. The litmus test is any ideology that establishes its expression upon a person's race, and in doing that, renders itself amoral. Race, in case you haven't noticed, is something that a person is born with. Consequently, to use it as a basis for a philosophy is amoral, since it doesn't matter. Using race as a litmus test is amoral. That's very clear.

    This is the third time within this very thread where I have very clearly explained that.

    Now, you bring that little patch into this website. That's your creed and you're very willing to shove it down peoples' throats -- just like the team has. OK, but understand this.

    At no time did anyone ban you, and at no time did I alter your membership status. There was nothing at all magical about you posting publicly just now.

    It seems someone did alter your membership status from full member to awaiting email confirmation. I did not do that. It would seem perhaps someone else did. And, I'm checking into the situation to see who may have. Regardless, when I discovered it, I did immediately change your status back to where I put it originally years ago. It seems your conduct here has offended another moderator here, who regarded what you did as a violation of the forum rules. Indeed, technically that is true. But, as site owner, I have decided to amend those rules, at least in this case. I figured you wanted to initiate the political discussion and I answered in kind, and allowed you the same platform to fairly and openly advocate your views, and you most certainly have.

    Your attacks on me were entirely without merit, but since when have leftists today waited for the facts to emerge before attacking people!

    In today's society, leftists will condemn cops for defending their own lives, without so much as caring one little bit about a cop getting shot in the line of duty. The thing about line of duty means they were operating within the regulations set forth governing their conduct. When those cops entered Breonna Taylor's apartment, they did so in accordance with a court order. That's how our society functions. They even announced loudly enough that they were police, before breaking the door down, that neighbors heard the cops yell out their identity. Taylor's then current boyfriend claims he never heard that yelled out announcement, before he shot at the three cops and seriously wounded one of them.

    That's what happens when Taylor's ex-boyfriend was involved in the illicit drug trade. That association, and the suspicion that Taylor's apartment was used as a stash house, is why the court issued the warrant. Regardless, the cops did not issue that warrant. One of them just got shot executing the warrant, and the other two returned fire only after they had been shot at. But, the left doesn't care about those facts. They just want vengeance. And vengeance is not justice, and justice and peace are not mutually exclusive, no matter how often the left wants to make them exclusive.

    I certainly have a far better understanding of your philosophy now than I did a few weeks ago.

    I can certainly understand why you support BLM the organization. It's because you support socialism. You believe that you're such a superior breed of human that you, and people like you, can somehow magically make socialism work harmoniously in America even though it's failed everywhere else it has been tried.

    I don't believe in any such notion of superior breed of human. I reject the assertion of the New Communist Man just as fervently as I reject the Nazi assertion of the Master Race nonsense.

    People are people. We live best when we live freely, without government tyranny in all its forms, and that includes the tyranny of institutional racism, in all its forms, including the one the left in America is currently employing.

    Now, you stew on that truth some, before you and people like you destroy the greatest nation that's ever been bestowed by God on the earth, and not the greatest nation because of the people who live in America. But, the greatest nation because it's the one that's tried the best to allow people to live free. Collectivist style governments cannot and do not live in harmony with individual liberty, because collectivist governments demand and obtain unilateral compliance with a strict set of dogma. The chase for social justice always ends with tyranny as the only lasting reality.

    Oh, and one more thing, Jinx99. That former avatar image of yours is one that years back you said was your child. At least, that's how I recalled it being said, and I recall how others here rejoiced in seeing it. It seems to me that your child is a far more important legacy of yourself than BLM.

    But, you go ahead and make your choice. If BLM is more important to you than your child, then please, by all means, continue to make that point crystal clear.

    My child is an anti-racist legacy. Part and parcel with BLM. But, Please let's leave kids out of this. You are better than that.

    Check your PM, Jinx. And yes, I did take the action on your avatar.

    So, this is where I must draw the line. You can restore your previous avatar image, but you cannot use the one you just created.

    I cannot allow you to post all throughout the forums using it.
    Hmm. Interesting. That is the patch that OUR players chose for their uniforms. Sorry, if it triggered you. I'm just expressing solidarity and team unity with our players. How is this not censoring free expression?

    Not having it. I pay the freight at this website and like I said in my PM, this patch as an avatar crossed the line. Now, I'm going to advise you of something else that twice now I expressed to you privately. Knock off the personal attacks.

    Throughout this very liberal discussion, where I have allowed you to express yourself quite openly and without restriction, I have not attacked you one single time. You have expressed views that I find wrongheaded and frankly destructive to the future of our country. But, I have not attacked you.

    You will stop attacking me, and will refrain from attacking other members.

    That's all I am going to say on the matter.
