a moot snip...
If you're 1/10th as open minded as you claim to be, you can't remotely believe that Blue was in the least bit interested in investment advice. Your accusation that those responding to his "question" somehow spun it into something political is almost comical. Go back and read the OP, it was nothing more than a political statement from the start.
well I don't think I made any statement, direct or indirect, that I am open minded. educated perhaps, open minded... well sometimes yes and sometimes no. <this is call projection and there does seem to be a lot of this going on here.... that is you are using your own self imposed mind set to place meaning on someone else's writing. so basically you are REINVENTING/REVISING the content of someone else words to suit you own needs.
I was referring moot to the title of the thread and was making a simple response to the title alone and not the content of bluebees own comment/content.
While I appreciate your attempt to educate me on what projection is...You're mistaken, it's not what I did!
As you seem to suggest that everyone else should do, and claim you yourself do, I was attempting to base my opinion of you on your remarks from numerous post and not simply arrive at an opinion of you from a single post, or your comments in a single thread.
From one of your previous post, you lecture beemaster and make the following statement; "Unlike yourself... I do try to collect a bit more information before I project some intention (good or bad) on any individual. Unlike yourself.. I do try to compose a bit broader profile before I tag someone as conservative or liberal..." (Link to Thread)
Your words, not mine. :)
While you may not have used the actual words, "open minded", I think the context of that statement certainly lends that impression. Therefore, I'd have to take issue with your above statement of, "well I don't think I made any statement, direct or indirect, that I am open minded.".
But hey, if I'm mistaken and you don't actually consider yourself "open minded", or you somehow take being called "open minded" as a criticism, by all means, I apologize and am sorry if I offended you. :-D
Hope you have a GREAT DAY! :)
