    This is a serious question regarding Dear Leader aka Berry.

    Well it's not a question just a poll.

    Why are you a dick? Let me count the ways...
    - You come to a cycling website deliberately looking for a scrap in the PAWN forum because you see that we are a generally Left leaning bunch. What happened, a Google search lead you to us? Trolls-r-us?
    Do you even own a bike?
    - You post deliberately inflamatory and disrespectful rhetoric that you must have gleaned from Fox News or one of their sycophants and then certainly giggle to yourself about how cool you are.
    - You cant be bothered to use basic grammar or punctuation skills taught in primary school, although a cursory check shows your spelling is at about a grade 9 level. Congrats for that.
    - You ARE a dick, or at very least an internet dick, which is a troll.

    Read through some of the other posts around here, you will see that Monkeys are pretty much a straightforward bunch, no politicians get free passes, no matter the party. (Although if Ashley Judd were elected I could put up with many shenanigans...)
    And I am not now, nor will I ever be, your "bro."

    Dont go away mad, just go away.

    I'll assume "spelt" is an attempt at humor. Second sentence is a run-on, but being used in it's context, the voice is acceptable, albeit marginally.

    This one:
    "Your" is a possessive and used improperly as an adjective is confusing. The correct spelling is "you're" which is a contraction for "you are".

    republitard

    A Republican that is retarded. This just happens to include all Republicans.
    George W. Bush is a Republitard.

    republitard

    One who identifies himself as a Republican but cannot intelligently debate a single Republican issue.
    The republitard generally believes that global warming is a left wing myth and that we have an endless supply of oil. He will frequently remark that George W. Bush is "smarter than he seems". The republitard has a bitter hatred of Hillary Clinton but is unable to cite a single reason why, except to say that she's just a bitch. Some of the more radical republitards actually believe that Bill and Hillary are serial killers.

    REPUBLITARD

    ANYONE THAT MAKES UNDER $100,000 AND VOTES
    REPUBLICAN OR WEDGE ISSUES IE. ABORTION,GOD,GUNS OR GAYS.
    JANE ONLY MAKES $15.000 DOLLARS A YEAR WORKING AT THE LOCAL HAMBURGER JOINT AND VOTED REPUBLITARD

    Republitard

    Ignorant Republican party members known to support Sarah Palin now and for 2012
    Steve : "Man that Borders is packed. It must be because of all the people waiting for Sarah Palin to sign their book"
    Max: "Yeah but they are all Republitards, they can't even read."



    See? You fit the description perfectly!

    Its not that you are the opposite side of the fence, its that you come here with a deliberately provocative style and look down on all who are different then you, which is uncool no matter which side of the fence you are on. Besides, Stinkle is our resident right winger, we dont need another one...

    Not at all, but when someone says he hopes it's a right wing person am I not allowed to say anything? Seems like because I don't agree with the majority here I am told to F off. But if I said ya! Evil guns right win gun nuts hatein on babies and women then I might be allowed to talk, correct?

    Cognitive Distortions

    1. Filtering.

    We take the negative details and magnify them while filtering out all positive aspects of a situation. For instance, a person may pick out a single, unpleasant detail and dwell on it exclusively so that their vision of reality becomes darkened or distorted.

    2. Polarized Thinking (or “Black and White” Thinking).

    In polarized thinking, things are either “black-or-white.” We have to be perfect or we’re a failure — there is no middle ground. You place people or situations in “either/or” categories, with no shades of gray or allowing for the complexity of most people and situations. If your performance falls short of perfect, you see yourself as a total failure.

    3. Overgeneralization.

    In this cognitive distortion, we come to a general conclusion based on a single incident or a single piece of evidence. If something bad happens only once, we expect it to happen over and over again. A person may see a single, unpleasant event as part of a never-ending pattern of defeat.

    4. Jumping to Conclusions.

    Without individuals saying so, we know what they are feeling and why they act the way they do. In particular, we are able to determine how people are feeling toward us.

    For example, a person may conclude that someone is reacting negatively toward them but doesn’t actually bother to find out if they are correct. Another example is a person may anticipate that things will turn out badly, and will feel convinced that their prediction is already an established fact.

    5. Catastrophizing.

    We expect disaster to strike, no matter what. This is also referred to as “magnifying or minimizing.” We hear about a problem and use what if questions (e.g., “What if tragedy strikes?” “What if it happens to me?”).

    For example, a person might exaggerate the importance of insignificant events (such as their mistake, or someone else’s achievement). Or they may inappropriately shrink the magnitude of significant events until they appear tiny (for example, a person’s own desirable qualities or someone else’s imperfections).

    With practice, you can learn to answer each of these cognitive distortions.
    6. Personalization.

    Personalization is a distortion where a person believes that everything others do or say is some kind of direct, personal reaction to the person. We also compare ourselves to others trying to determine who is smarter, better looking, etc.

    A person engaging in personalization may also see themselves as the cause of some unhealthy external event that they were not responsible for. For example, “We were late to the dinner party and caused the hostess to overcook the meal. If I had only pushed my husband to leave on time, this wouldn’t have happened.”

    7. Control Fallacies.

    If we feel externally controlled, we see ourselves as helpless a victim of fate. For example, “I can’t help it if the quality of the work is poor, my boss demanded I work overtime on it.” The fallacy of internal control has us assuming responsibility for the pain and happiness of everyone around us. For example, “Why aren’t you happy? Is it because of something I did?”

    8. Fallacy of Fairness.

    We feel resentful because we think we know what is fair, but other people won’t agree with us. As our parents tell us, “Life is always fair,” and people who go through life applying a measuring ruler against every situation judging its “fairness” will often feel badly and negative because of it.

    9. Blaming.

    We hold other people responsible for our pain, or take the other track and blame ourselves for every problem. For example, “Stop making me feel bad about myself!” Nobody can “make” us feel any particular way — only we have control over our own emotions and emotional reactions.

    10. Shoulds.

    We have a list of ironclad rules about how others and we should behave. People who break the rules make us angry, and we feel guilty when we violate these rules. A person may often believe they are trying to motivate themselves with shoulds and shouldn’ts, as if they have to be punished before they can do anything.

    For example, “I really should exercise. I shouldn’t be so lazy.” Musts and oughts are also offenders. The emotional consequence is guilt. When a person directs should statements toward others, they often feel anger, frustration and resentment.

    11. Emotional Reasoning.

    We believe that what we feel must be true automatically. If we feel stupid and boring, then we must be stupid and boring. You assume that your unhealthy emotions reflect he way things really are — “I feel it, therefore it must be true.”

    12. Fallacy of Change.

    We expect that other people will change to suit us if we just pressure or cajole them enough. We need to change people because our hopes for happiness seem to depend entirely on them.

    13. Global Labeling.

    We generalize one or two qualities into a negative global judgment. These are extreme forms of generalizing, and are also referred to as “labeling” and “mislabeling.” Instead of describing an error in context of a specific situation, a person will attach an unhealthy label to themselves.

    For example, they may say, “I’m a loser” in a situation where they failed at a specific task. When someone else’s behavior rubs a person the wrong way, they may attach an unhealthy label to him, such as “He’s a real jerk.” Mislabeling involves describing an event with language that is highly colored and emotionally loaded. For example, instead of saying someone drops her children off at daycare every day, a person who is mislabeling might say that “she abandons her children to strangers.”

    14. Always Being Right.

    We are continually on trial to prove that our opinions and actions are correct. Being wrong is unthinkable and we will go to any length to demonstrate our rightness. For example, “I don’t care how badly arguing with me makes you feel, I’m going to win this argument no matter what because I’m right.” Being right often is more important than the feelings of others around a person who engages in this cognitive distortion, even loved ones.

    15. Heaven’s Reward Fallacy.

    We expect our sacrifice and self-denial to pay off, as if someone is keeping score. We feel bitter when the reward doesn’t come.

    Again, its your approach...deliberately provocative, not at all introspective or respectful to anyone else. You offer nothing of substance, nor do you contribute anything of worth. Argueargueargue, doing nothing for "your side" other than further alienating those of us who have been here a minute. We are a pretty cooland tolerant bunch, as a general rule.

    I am not trying to do anything for 'my side' Johnny bro.
    I made a poll asking if you were happy with the president.
    My approach? No people who don't agree with the majority here are held to a different standard. Sorry I don't like our president, please don't hurt me. I am pro-gun so therefor in your eyes I am an evil, fat baby killer.

    Yes - this is that double standard that just kills you guys. Have you ever heard of "Woman and children first"? In certain societies (even this one not so long ago) - certain groups get more respect. The white male has no need to be championed in this country

    I am pro gun, and have spent over 20 years in the US military. But I also lean left on alot of issues. What does that make me? Once again, its your approach to others hereabouts that labels you less a then desireable Monkey.

    Funny I have to say liberals are retarded. For example they don't know the difference between a magazine and a clip.
    Obama also thinks the US has 57 states.

    uh uh uh and uhhh treatment for the...uhh ok it's going to cost the same. Hold on! We're fired up!
