Judgmentalism. Sweeping statements based on perceptions.

yikes...you must be right ..there are no words on the right side of the screen. I can't read your right-leaning, words of discrimination based on your perception of the political leanings of those who do not agree with you on some random subject.  Snowflakes ..today? April 20? So late in the year.

So AARP is for us and against us?

That’s not logical, it’s lunacy!


The answer is really quite easy but not understandable to those heavily into identity politics - AARP represents ALL retired people, not only radical left retired people.


Maybe, it's a matter of incompetence rather than intent.  The AARP forum rules favor members who frequently use indirect snark to those who use direct snark.  The frequent use of indirect snark is a feminine trait called "catty." See

 

https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/compassion-matters/201211/why-do-women-act-catty

 

Donald Trump often uses direct snark and infrequently uses indirect snark therefore he is the opposite of catty.  More conservatives than liberals behave like Trump in that regard.  Thus, AARP promotes catty behavior in its forum members by banning those who use direct snark and that could be the reason why effeminately catty liberals outnumber conservatives in this forum.  And, of course, Donald Trump (and I) wouldn't use the crybaby button.  Well, it's just my theory.

me too!  Hannity? Fox?

Some publication they recently mailed me had an article about that racist Sessions. I'm done with GOP-AARP


Of course we wouldn't want a national magazine of varied interests from an organization representing people of various thinking to run an article about the Attorney General of the United States.

AARP is buying advertising on Hannity's show

 

I stopped watching FOX news when it became clear to me that the US was being herded into  war based on a WMD threat that did not exist. That war led to the next war, which led to the next war, which will lead to the next war.

 

I cut the cable years ago, I don't watch commercials at all. 

 

I use an ad blocker on the Internet, I pay for the journalism I want to read.

 

I just throw junk mail away without reading it.

 

I block and filter phone calls, though some spam still does get through.

 

So I have no idea what ads AARP is showing anywhere, on any station.

 

So I looked for a sample of AARP commercials.

 

https://www.ispot.tv/brands/7hZ/aarp-services-inc

 

Most of them are for services AARP sells, not much in the way of advocacy at all.

 

Except maybe this one.

 

https://www.ispot.tv/ad/Aago/aarp-caregiver-assistance-help

 

I didn't watch them all, just a handful, I'm sure there are a few good ones,  but it's mostly AARP selling stuff.

 

So if you want to boycott FOX news and it advertisers, or tell AARP don't advertise there is you want me to continue paying dues and using you services I don't see anything wrong with doing that. We are free to associate with who we chose, just as AARP is free to advertise on FOX news and the Haninity show, we all are free to refuse to watch, listen, use or buy any of the stuff or services advertised on FOX.

PS Stop the baloney fake quotations of HRC and anyone else. Not a sign of intelligence nor serious discussion.

Uh, no. I am old & I've got some asaets. Betcha LOTS more than you do. Neither of those things turned me into a hate-mongering racist idiot.  Sorry for those for whom this has been the result.

If you watch Hannity - I cannot describe you in any more graphic terms than the above. Not on here. Meet ya over on twitter. Pity the fool.
