An Eisenberg fan

Posted: June 15, 2014 2:00 a.m.
Updated: June 15, 2014 2:00 a.m.
 

For many years, Lois Eisenberg has written awesome letters to the editor for The Signal. She combines great thinking and great writing in her letters to the editor.

A competitor to The Signal once did a study which, ultimately, concluded that liberal writers are much more honest in their writings than are conservative writers.

Although the study was done many years ago, I have not heard of any other study which states otherwise. At any rate, Lois’ letters for The Signal are direct, to the point, well written, support truth--in a word, honest.

Indeed, history has proven that the study--which has been repeated with the same conclusions--supports the real truth of the matter. Again, no other study has been completed which states otherwise; liberals are much more honest in their writings than are conservative writers.

To be certain, Lois Eisenberg’s stuff supports truth even though many conservative writers for The Signal pretend to themselves that such is not the case. Then, they write their lies. However, Mark Twain, once, said that “a lie can go halfway around the world before truth puts on its boots.” Yes, that saying by Mr. Twain causes me to think about Lois’ stuff.

What a load of hogwash!

This guy quotes some anonymous "study" as the basis for his argument, and doesn't have anything more specific about it other than that it was conducted by "A competitor to The Signal"?

Well, along those lines, I remember reading "a study" conducted by "someone" which concluded that liberals never tell the truth when a lie will do.



Prove me wrong.

Robert Burton's LTE must be traveling over Tasmania by now...


EgbertSouse4U: Posted: June 15, 2014 8:00 a.m.

C'mon, this can't be real. But it IS funny!


BBennetts: Posted: June 15, 2014 8:23 a.m.

I read a study that said that people that are named Robert Burton are always wrong.


CaptGene: Posted: June 15, 2014 8:25 a.m.

This guy is another performance artist, like Indy Nile. Nothing to see here...move along.


hepnerkid: Posted: June 15, 2014 8:52 a.m.

Our dear Lois has for years now, written some interesting thoughts, most of which can never stand up to the scrutiny of logic. She knows that global warming is true because obama and gore say so.They are both fools of the highest order. I always wonder what these people say when their ideas never pan out.


therightstuff: Posted: June 15, 2014 8:54 a.m.

There was once a study that said people who use the term BINGO for affirmation is the sign of a psychopath.

I've never seen the study, never read the study, don't know where it came from, who wrote it, or can I offer a link to the study...but if it fits my narrative then it must be true.




EgbertSouse4U: Posted: June 15, 2014 8:57 a.m.

Well, we know she's pro-Bingo.


EgbertSouse4U: Posted: June 15, 2014 8:59 a.m.

I once read a study that said eating leads to feces.


projalice11: Posted: June 15, 2014 10:11 a.m.

BINGO, BINGO, BINGO Mr. Burton ..

"There was once a study that said people who use the term BINGO for affirmation is the sign of a psychopath."

"There was once a study that said people who" don't understand the term BINGO,
and it's consequence is a fool ..


EgbertSouse4U: Posted: June 15, 2014 10:21 a.m.

"The term BINGO and it's consequences???

Care to comment now, Mr. Burton?


projalice11: Posted: June 15, 2014 10:33 a.m.

Consequence:

*Result or effect
*Importance
*A condition or occurrence traceable to a cause
*The quality or state of being of notable worth or influence
*Social or professional importance or distinction
*An attitude of regarding oneself with favor


tech: Posted: June 15, 2014 10:34 a.m.

I suggest Ms. Eisenberg and Mr. Burton nominate each other as President of their respective Fan Clubs.

Club activities:

• Writing Signal columns and LTEs
• Complimenting each other for their innumerable substantive contributions to the community
• Bingo

Emphasis on the latter, of course.


projalice11: Posted: June 15, 2014 12:35 p.m.

Bingo Tech what a good idea ..


tech: Posted: June 15, 2014 12:49 p.m.

I've got more, projalice11!

How about Ms. Eisenberg and Mr. Burton in a mini open cart, drawn by Shetland Ponies, circling the Newhall Roundabout? Flyers containing platitudes could be handed out to curious witnesses to the spectacle.


projalice11: Posted: June 15, 2014 1:24 p.m.

Tech again a good idea..

Do have any more? Please advise..

"I say that all racist talk should be outlawed, and I think that there should be a stiff financial fine for those who utter such language!"

http://www.signalscv.com/section/35/article/119756/

He goes on to say that he is going to try and get a law passed. Clearly, it's a goof, a joke, a put-on. I suspect that Indy Nile, projalice111 and this Burton character are all the same person. The Mighty Signal publishes them in order to increase their online traffic. Don't fall for it, nobody is as stupid as these people claim to be.


projalice11: Posted: June 15, 2014 2:10 p.m.

BINGO SOUR GRAPES AGAIN ..


RobertBurton: Posted: June 15, 2014 3:11 p.m.

The study consisted of many newspaper articles thrown into a hat, but the authors' names were not provided--so that nobody knew if the writers were liberal or conservative! They just guessed from the writing itself which of the writings were the most honest. The result was that the liberal writers were picked ten to one over the conservative writers as being more honest. A repeated study came up with the same conclusion: liberal writers were picked as much more honest than the conservative writers--again, ten to one.


tech: Posted: June 15, 2014 3:34 p.m.

I'm inspired again, projalice11!

How about a mandated commemorative ALL CAPS KEYBOARD with dedicated BINGO and Hillary 2016 macro keys? Of course, the macros will be invoked for every communication without regard to user activation. You can't be too careful in managing people's lives, eh? Safety first!


tech: Posted: June 15, 2014 3:41 p.m.

Why, that's a Progessive's dream study, Mr. Burton! Care to provide a cite to the study so we can all be informed on the truth monopoly?


chefgirl358: Posted: June 15, 2014 3:45 p.m.

Oh. My. God. There are TWO people out there with the personality of a door knob and wits to match? I would not have ever thought it possible that Lois would have a genuine supporter, much less one that refers to her as a great thinker and great writer. Did someone lose a bet? Is this a joke? Are we on punked?


BrianBaker: Posted: June 15, 2014 4:02 p.m.

"RobertBurton: Posted: June 15, 2014 3:11 p.m. The study consisted of..."


WHAT "study", Burton?

You're just babbling a bunch of bullpuckey about something you made up out of thin air, or maybe HUFFPO made up out of thin air, and anyone here is supposed to actually believe such an asinine "study" actually exists?


Dude, I have this bridge in the middle of the Gobi Desert I'm trying to sell. I'll be keeping an eye on this thread to see if any prospects appear. Because anyone who falls for YOUR line of snake oil is a sure sucker.


BrianBaker: Posted: June 15, 2014 4:32 p.m.

Here's Burton's idea of a "study", in his own words:

"The study consisted of many newspaper articles thrown into a hat..."

WHO picked those articles?

"They just guessed from the writing itself which of the writings were the most honest."


WHO is "they"?

And "they" just "guessed"?

Wow. How very "scientific". Sounds kinda like the globull warming "consensus".


"The result was that the liberal writers were picked ten to one over the conservative writers as being more honest."


HAhahahahahaha!

Yeah, what an impressive "result". And what an impressive "study", with such "scientific" standards and rigor and protocols being observed, and all that.



Burton, really. Thanks for the laughs, dude.




projalice11: Posted: June 15, 2014 7:56 p.m.

Again continual post of sour sour grapes.. HAhahahahahaha!

To the posters that can't get off of their soap boxes..Thank you for the laughs..

"Liberal writers were picked ten to one over the conservative writers as being more honest." Those numbers, ten to one, are very impressive ..








projalice11: Posted: June 15, 2014 8:08 p.m.

"I have this bridge in the middle of the Gobi Desert I'm trying to sell."
"Who would be dumb enough to own a bridge in the Gobi Desert.

There is a sucker born every minute, but in your case it was just 1/2 minute..



BrianBaker: Posted: June 16, 2014 9:14 p.m.

"There is a sucker born every minute, but in your case it was just 1/2 minute.."


Wow, projalice. I guess in your ... "mind"? ... that actually makes some kind of sense.

But here's the problem, bubette. I'M not the one buying his horsepuckey.

YOU are.


BrianBaker: Posted: June 16, 2014 9:21 p.m.

BTW, I'm selling that bridge REAL cheap.

Want it? How much ya got to spend?


RobertBurton: Posted: June 16, 2014 10:40 p.m.

Your comments, BrianBaker, indorses the studies findings in that your comments are all ad hominies--that is, not honest language. Indeed, if your writing was analyzed in the study, it would have been spotted as one of the writings which was not honest. By the way, I have pointed out to you your dishonest writings of ad hominies at a different time, but you refuse to change for the better. You think your writings are cute, but, rather, "dude," they just show you to be dishonest. Try harder to change your ways.


philellis: Posted: June 16, 2014 6:46 a.m.

Some days, the Signal LTE page certainly belongs on the Comics page. BUt since there is already a Lois comi strip, that might cause confusion


BrianBaker: Posted: June 16, 2014 7:25 a.m.

Gaaaawd, Burton, that's hilarious.

WHAT "study", bud?

You still keep pointing to this fictional "study" which you can't even identify.


Pathetic.


RobertBurton: Posted: June 16, 2014 7:40 a.m.

BrianBaker, you make an error in logic by saying since the study is too old to record--it must not be a study. I am not making things up; there, indeed, was a study done--two times with the same conclusions, liberal writers are more honest writers than are conservative writers. Yes, the study is too old (early 1980s) for me to tap into, but that does not mean there is not a study; rather, it jus means that I am having a hard time bringing it up. I am not lying--I am a moralist--the study is real.


ohhyaa: Posted: June 16, 2014 7:42 a.m.

"Dimensia runs amuck in the Santa Clarita Valley". Details, including hair color, cholesterol levels and latest bunion surgery to follow.

Dear Signal,

Your credibility is already questionable. You should save these types of articles for April 1st since they serve no purpose other than a chuckle or two. Maybe a stupid posts column in the meantime.




BrianBaker: Posted: June 16, 2014 7:49 a.m.

No, Burton, YOU claim there's some "study" out there which you can't even identify. YOU described a ridiculous "protocol" that's about as scientific as the Tooth Fairy.

In other words, all you've got is a load of meaningless pullpuckey.

Wow. I just remembered a "study" that found that liberals never tell the truth when they can think up a convenient lie.

Prove me wrong.



projalice11: Posted: June 16, 2014 8:39 a.m.

About that bridge in the Godi Desert:

"I'm selling that bridge REAL cheap."

"Want it? How much ya got to spend?"
The worst Real Estate promotion I have every read.. Pathetic
What Real Estate Savvy.. Pathetic

Who would be dumb enough in the first place to buy a bridge in the Godi Desert?
Who would be dumb enough to try and sell this bridge in the Godi Desert?
Who would be dumb enough to buy this bridge from a snake oil salesman?






BrianBaker: Posted: June 16, 2014 8:43 a.m.

Excellent riposte, projalice. Keep up the good work.

LOL

To answer your questions: you, you, and you.


philellis: Posted: June 16, 2014 9:27 a.m.

Brian, I think that with global warming and melting ice caps that there soon will be a need for a bridge in the Gobi desert. Don't let it go too cheaply.


BrianBaker: Posted: June 16, 2014 9:33 a.m.

Hey, good thought, Phil!

An investment in the future.


17trillion: Posted: June 16, 2014 9:41 a.m.

I'm glad Robert and Lois write and comment so much. It's not their "thoughts" that matter, but the responses. They are hilarious! Well done people! Just sitting here thinking of those two sitting at their computers wondering why everyone, and I mean EVERYONE, is mocking them makes me smile.

Let us not forget that Lois once authored a letter complaining about her failure to understand what "right lane must turn right" means. And this qualifies as great thinking to Robert? Man, you just cant make this comedy up.


projalice11: Posted: June 16, 2014 10:39 a.m.

Can't continue this inane posting by the inane posters **********

"right lane must turn right" so utterly redundant *****


EgbertSouse4U: Posted: June 16, 2014 11:06 a.m.

Bingo! Sour redundant grapes*************************

Oh wait, almost forgot....

*********************************************


17trillion: Posted: June 16, 2014 11:20 a.m.

You're right Lois, it is redundant. But if you're going to be held as a "great thinker", then you have a duty to "own" some of your greatest thoughts and this one was a doozy.


RobertBurton: Posted: June 16, 2014 12:31 p.m.

One thing about these comments revolves around the fact that people tend not to comment if they agree with what has been said in the letter to the editor. Instead, comments tend to be from people who disagree with the letter. I have no idea for why that is so, just that that is what I have observed. Therefore, let it not go unnoticed that many people agree with the study that I have been writing about--but, as I say, people who agree tend not to comment! Therefore, getting correct statistics about it is hard.


EgbertSouse4U: Posted: June 16, 2014 12:36 p.m.

Burton said: "One thing about these comments revolves around the fact that people tend not to comment if they agree with what has been said in the letter to the editor."

Totally disagree with this statement as well. You're flailing. You have been asked multiple times to cite your sources, but you can't. So you keep making up more theories that, again, are based on NOTHING other than your opinion.


therightstuff: Posted: June 16, 2014 12:40 p.m.

"""people who agree tend not to comment!"""

The earth is flat. If you agree, don't comment.


17trillion: Posted: June 16, 2014 1:30 p.m.

Sorry Robert. Allow me to be the first to agree with you that Lois is a great thinker. Where else can we be reminded of the dangers of children, playing, in the street on occasion. Where else can we band together as a community to stop the egregious practice of the Post Office having drive up boxes that don't exactly conform to the physical limitations of one Lois Eisenberg. And finally, "right lane must turn right"! Who would have thought this confusing admonishment would cause so much consternation for Lois. She is a community treasure as are you!


Lotus8: Posted: June 16, 2014 1:48 p.m.

How does something like this get published on this website? Really? Are they not paying anyone there to ensure at least some standard of quality? I am now dumber for having read this. This is example 1A of how a completely brainwashed fan of the blue or red team with very little horsepower in the brains department thinks. This seemed like a well thought out letter to them with objective evidence that may be of interest to someone. As Borat would say...NOT!


Lotus8: Posted: June 16, 2014 1:52 p.m.

And Robert, the fact that nobody is on here supporting your horrible letter is not evidence of a wide base of support. That line of thinking is exactly why your original piece is a waste of digital space. Please stop while you are behind before you fall even further behind.


BrianBaker: Posted: June 16, 2014 2:40 p.m.

Hey, Burton, evidently everyone here agrees with my "study" proving that liberals are liars whether it's necessary or not, since I don't see ONE SINGLE COMMENT disputing it.

I guess my "study" trumps your "study".


chefgirl358: Posted: June 16, 2014 3:07 p.m.

Besides Lois' issues with turning right on a red light, let's not forget about the letter she wrote complaining about the drive thru mailbox at the Creekside post office being too tall for her to reach from her car window and the other drivers getting irked at her for taking so long to drop her mail. Or the one where she opined about people in crosswalks talking on cell phones. Or the one where she complained about people driving too fast in general. Or the one where she whined about the way people drive in parking lots, I believe the Best Buy lot was mentioned. Bottom line is, Lois aka projalice, needs to be submitted for a DMV re-exam. She clearly has issues with driving.


RobertBurton: Posted: June 16, 2014 6:02 p.m.

I think that the negative responses to my letter in support of Lois' thinking and writing are a result of misogynistic attitudes. Indeed, men not being able to write as well as she does helps them to adopt hatred for her on account of her sex. Ms. Eisenberg's expository writing is first rate, and I have yet to read any man--or woman, for that matter--who is better at explaining the situations that she wants her readers to behold! From now on, fear her not, but bask in her superior thinking-and- writing abilities. All you have to lose are your literary chains.


CaptGene: Posted: June 16, 2014 6:10 p.m.

Guys, this guy is a comic troll, he can't be for real, he is another performance artist, like Indy Nile.

CLASSIC leftism personified!

Losing the battle of wits, so now let's resort to the hackneyed and clichéd "war on women" meme.

Oh, man...........


CaptGene, I think you nailed it. This guy's doing a lefty caricature.

This is comment-thread comic theater.


RobertBurton: Posted: June 16, 2014 7:23 p.m.

If you want me to continue to teach all of you, you will have to start paying me; I have too much on my plate, if you will, to break away and correct your faulty thinking-and-writing errors. Holy smokes, have you never heard of a comma splice? By the way, I am happy to be a liberal, because liberals are not only more honest than conservatives, they are also better educated than conservatives, formally--guys. As a result, in dealing with conservatives, time is on my side. See, I am giving you, et al., enough rope to hang yourselves.


CaptGene: Posted: June 16, 2014 8:07 p.m.

See what I mean? I made the mistake of taking this clown seriously once, what a waste of time. --edited.


ohhyaa: Posted: June 16, 2014 8:09 p.m.

Let's not forget about the October 7, 2013 post about cursive handwriting. Lois ranting about letters being too curvey and how her grandfather would have torn up the paper it was written on. I wonder if her family is aware of all the LTE that she writes? Maybe it's time to take the car keys and the tablet away.


EgbertSouse4U: Posted: June 16, 2014 8:35 p.m.

OK, after Burton's last post I am now convinced this is one big joke on all of us and we all bit. We've been had, folks. Touche, Mr. Burton.


BrianBaker: Posted: June 17, 2014 9:23 p.m.

Really DO have to laugh at that last one, guys.

Watch this......




Hey Burton, you wrote: "As a result, in dealing with conservatives, time is on my side."

Really? At the rate you guys are killing off your own unborn babies, I'd say time is on OUR side!


RobertBurton: Posted: June 17, 2014 9:29 p.m.

CaptGene, you make one comma splice after another. I am not going to tell what a comma splice is so you can figure it out on your own. Once you learn how to write English, the correct language will stay with you longer than if I try to teach correct English to you. Better is to take English at a community college, for you need to learn the basics. You denounce Lois when in fact it is your writing that is in need of improvement! I find it hard to understand your thoughts because your writing is sour.


CaptGene: Posted: June 17, 2014 9:57 p.m.

If you want a laugh, ask him his plan to end racism!

After hearing it you will know, for sure, that this guy is just putting us on.


RobertBurton: Posted: June 17, 2014 11:15 p.m.

The laugh, CaptGene, is on you, for you take your writing seriously, but your writing is sour. I can tell that you have never occupied a seat of higher learning! Furthermore, your writing is devoid of literary substance, for you simply attack the person rather than his, or her, work. You have no business thinking that you can debate college graduates; you have not paid your literary dues--not by a long shot. My B.A. cost me $30,000.00, and I think that that English literature degree (from Cal State Northridge), qualities me to instruct you the basics of the written word. You need help. Lois is far and away a better writer and thinker than you.


BrianBaker: Posted: June 17, 2014 6:51 a.m.

Burton: "My B.A. cost me $30,000.00..."


Dude! It may not be too late to demand a refund!


CaptGene: Posted: June 17, 2014 6:52 a.m.

Gosh, that really hurts Bob. Does this mean you're not going to share your plan for ending racism?


EgbertSouse4U: Posted: June 17, 2014 8:12 a.m.

"My B.A. cost me $30,000.00, and I think that that English literature degree (from Cal State Northridge), qualities me to instruct you the basics of the written word."

WOW!!! If this is a sample of your superiority, I have to say, you are not much of a wordsmith.


RobertBurton: Posted: June 17, 2014 8:18 a.m.

When historians consider what caused the fall of the United States of America, I believe they shall say that racism was the culprit. Indeed, unless we do something to end racism here, our ending as a country is imminent! Indeed, I have a plan to end racism in America. My plan, as you know, would make it illegal to speak racist language, payable by a financial fine. As you also know, I have a proposal in the making that would see such a law adopted--and endorsed by all upright Americans. I think that the powers that be shall give my proposal a fine listening.


BrianBaker: Posted: June 17, 2014 8:35 a.m.

Hahahahaha!


Priceless.

"Indeed, I have a plan to end racism in America."

Does your alleged degree in English Lit make you an expert on racism, too?

"My plan, as you know"... (HOW would we know?)... "would make it illegal to speak racist language, payable by a financial fine."


Yeah! So there! SCREW that First Amendment nonsense!


Ya really gotta love it. We've gone from the fake "study" to the "war on women" to "racism".

First rule when you're stuck in a hole, Burton, is to stop digging.


Can you see China yet...?


ohhyaa: Posted: June 17, 2014 9:02 a.m.

The financial fine equates to a bunch of quarters in a cookie jar.

Under R. Burton's plan Americans with osteoporosis or any other spinal disorder are no longer afforded a vote as they are unable to stand upright. What a dim wit.


RobertBurton: Posted: June 17, 2014 9:42 a.m.

Upright Americans means to be fine citizens of our country--dim wit. I should think that even conservatives would understand that meaning without having it explained to them. Have you never read American literature, especially the works of Mark Twain?
By the way, nothing in our First Amendment allows for immorality, and speaking racist words is very immoral. Hence, laws which forbid immorality help to improve our country! My pending proposal does precisely that.


BrianBaker: Posted: June 17, 2014 9:59 a.m.

Burton: "By the way, nothing in our First Amendment allows for immorality, and speaking racist words is very immoral. Hence, laws which forbid immorality help to improve our country! My pending proposal does precisely that."


Evidently your touted degree in English Lit didn't include any study of the Constitution. You should give it a try, along with the Federalist Papers, which explain the meaning and context of that founding document.

See, that's one of the big problems with you lefties: you have absolutely NO idea what the Constitution is all about.

But, since we're going to simply waive the Constitution in search of this Utopia you envision, the only question that remains is this:

WHO is going to get to decide what's "immoral speech".

You?

Or ME?

Because if it's ME, since I think ALL expressions of leftist speech are "immoral", you'd better pack your bags, because YOU, bud, are going to find yourself on your way to the new American gulags.

RobertBurton said: "By the way, nothing in our First Amendment allows for immorality, and speaking racist words is very immoral."

Mr. Burton: Seriously. Does ANYTHING you write have ANYTHING to do with facts? Please re-read the constitution. The First Amendment has nothing to do with morality.... nothing.

Are you sure you are real, or is RobertBurton just another one of Lois' nicknames? I am honestly incredulous at your posts and you seem to write in a very similar style as Lois. Do you wear a flowered hat?


philellis: Posted: June 17, 2014 10:01 a.m.

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, EXCEPT FOR COMMENTS CONSIDERED TO BE RACIST OR IMMORAL BY ROBERT BURTON, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.


ohhyaa: Posted: June 17, 2014 10:03 a.m.

Amazing how you know my ideology based on my smart a$$ remark. I've not only read every Mark Twain but most every modern classic. Just a FYI on the works of Mark Twain, many characters being of the Negro persuasion (a different word is used)a significant portion of Twain's story is told is the poorest of English grammar. Now who's the dim wit(again).


BrianBaker: Posted: June 17, 2014 10:04 a.m.

Egbert, I'm kinda thinking Indy.


RobertBurton: Posted: June 17, 2014 10:17 a.m.

No,no, all laws are based from proper morality. That is, in order to become a law, it must first conform to proper morality. That is one of the reasons why our U.S. Constitution--and its multiple amendments--is superior to all other such documents!
Indeed, I have read The Federalist Papers as well as our Constitution many times. In fact, I say that it is you who do not understand how laws are adopted in the first place. You are not thinking deeply enough.


BrianBaker: Posted: June 17, 2014 10:23 a.m.

LOL!


Okay... what's "proper morality"? Why are you throwing around meaningless and undefined terms, Mr. English Lit Major?


And again, WHO gets to determine it, whatever it is?

You?

Or ME?

I may not be "thinking deeply enough", but at least I AM thinking.

Which is a boatload more than can be said for YOU, bubba.


CaptGene: Posted: June 17, 2014 10:25 a.m.

BB, my second post here I also hypothesized that he is not only The Black Knight but also the Bingo Lady.

I knew he would post his master plan to end racism, because a. if he's for real, he really believes he's going to save the country, or b. if he's a phony, he gets off on people reacting to his...ahem..."art".


BrianBaker: Posted: June 17, 2014 10:31 a.m.

Well, CG, I do think you've got something there.

I mean, c'mon...... Nobody could write such gibberish and actually expect to be taken SERIOUSLY, could they?

This is Lois herself..... no doubt! HA HA HA HA!!!


chefgirl358: Posted: June 17, 2014 10:59 a.m.

Mr Burton, education doesn't mean anything at all if the person has no basic common sense. At my company, some of the most inept, incompetent people in my organization are among the most highly educated (masters, doctorates and even a few PhD's) and between the lot they couldn't screw in a lightbulb together if they had to...ZERO common sense.

And your assessment of Lois being some sort of freaky genius, and your ramblings about comma splicing make your claims of higher education being some sort of plus, rather shaky at best.

I'm just sayin...

You started this whole thing with your stupid letter. Get out of the kitchen if you can't take the heat, because you will never find anyone on this post who will agree with you besides of course Lois aka projalice, aka Burton??


RobertBurton: Posted: June 17, 2014 4:14 p.m.

Your comments are so silly that I find it beneath my integrity to respond, but I do respond for the sake of your edification! First, morality comes under the science of moral philosophy; it is not something that has different opinions to different people. Second, formal education results in knowledge for the future. That is, it includes common sense. Third, Lois and I are not the same person. Do I need to explain that to you conservatives, or can common sense dictate?


EgbertSouse4U: Posted: June 17, 2014 4:22 p.m.

"Do I need to explain that to you conservatives, or can common sense dictate?"

Is this not CLASSIC Lois style writing?


BrianBaker: Posted: June 17, 2014 4:29 p.m.

Again, Burton, senseless, inane, meaningless babble, on top of which you tried to avoid the question.

So, here it is again. Try to pay attention this time.

SOMEONE gets to decide what speech is "immoral" and therefore not protected by the First Amendment.

WHO IS THAT?




For a guy who claims to have a degree in English Lit, you sure have a hard time with the English language, bud.


ohhyaa: Posted: June 17, 2014 4:56 p.m.

Robert Burton. You're a fan of the same Lois Eisenberg that has 4 followers on Twitter?


chefgirl358: Posted: June 17, 2014 4:58 p.m.

Burton is a front for Lois, I'm convinced. Either that or he's her simple minded fraternal twin. Whether it really is one person or two...they are still one and the same no matter how you slice it so there's no point engaging one or both of them. It's like running on a hamster wheel, you'll never get anywhere trying to reason with the unreasonable. You cannot reason with the unreasonable or have a logical conversation with people that are utterly illogical.


CaptGene: Posted: June 17, 2014 5:10 p.m.

Anyone else notice that Lois has been conspicuously absent lately?


BrianBaker: Posted: June 17, 2014 5:45 p.m.

She put in a guest appearance over on the Kevin Buck column today.


RobertBurton: Posted: June 17, 2014 6:46 p.m.

BrianBaker, my writing of the English language is far superior to yours, so much so that any reasonable person would find it difficult to come up with any other conclusion! In fact, if you would get off your pretense, I could greatly help you to write a few proper sentences, etc. By the way, I was graduated from Cal State Northridge on 23 December, 1993. If you really think that I am lying about that, look it up. In the meantime, I invite you to be my student as regards the improvement of your weak English skills.


ohhyaa: Posted: June 17, 2014 8:31 p.m.

EgbertSouse4U: Posted: June 18, 2014 9:09 p.m.

Are you sure you graduated from CSUN, or was it the Sally Struthers school of VCR repair?


chefgirl358: Posted: June 18, 2014 9:25 p.m.

Lol, thank you Ohhyaa and Egbert for the laughs! Lois' grandson and Sally Struthers school of VCR repair just about made me spit out my beverage laughing so hard.

RobertBurton: Posted: June 18, 2014 9:50 p.m.

4U, you just do not understand superior writing when you see it. I feel that I am commenting on the writing-and-thinking abilities of third graders! I just cannot believe that you are pompous enough to actually think that your writing skills not only are good, but are better than mine. That really is an insult of the worst proportions! Most conservatives I find to be ridiculously woeful in their written expression. Have you ever occupied a seat of higher learning? If so, it does not show in your weak writing. I can educate you in writing ability, if you would just let me.


BrianBaker: Posted: June 18, 2014 9:53 p.m.

Burton.... Gawd, dude, you're pathetic and hilarious all at the same time. I guess that means you're pathetically hilarious.


Answer the question.

WHO GETS TO MAKE THE DECISION on what's "immoral"?

What is so hard to understand in that simple question, written in English, for someone with your much self-vaunted linguistic abilities?


You are indeed a legend in your own mind. We all agree.


Now........ answer the question!


RobertBurton: Posted: June 18, 2014 10:19 p.m.

BrianBaker, to start at the raw beginning, moral philosophers determine what is moral, and what is not. To answer your question, thence, experts in the field of moral philosophy consider what is moral, and what is not. Once morality is determined, law gets placed on the books, as it were, which conforms to that moral standard. Thus, all laws are morally based. I realize that none of you are wise enough to understand any of this--judging from your silly comments. All of you need to take English 101--soon.


CaptGene: Posted: June 18, 2014 10:43 p.m.

"I can educate you in writing ability, if you would just let me"

He got his father's pomposity.


CaptGene: Posted: June 18, 2014 10:50 p.m.

"I can educate you in writing ability"

Anyone else see something wrong with this statement?


BrianBaker: Posted: June 18, 2014 10:56 p.m.

Jeez, Burton!

You think you're a whiz when it comes to communication, and you STILL haven't answered the question!

Take the mush out of your mouth and talk straight, if that's at all possible.

WHO are these "moral philosophers", and who appoints them?

From where do they derive the power to impose criminal penalties on people for voicing their opinions?

What part of the Constitution authorizes such a thing?

And now for the Bonus Round Question: which one of us gets to make that decision? You or me?

Because I think liberalism is morally reprehensible and repugnant, so once again, I think you ought to start packing for your move to your new home in the American gulag.

Get it NOW?????


RobertBurton: Posted: June 18, 2014 1:57 a.m.

You ask, who appoints the philosophers? My answer is as follows: They all write proposals--like I am doing--and submit the proposals to their favorite Congressman. Ultimately, a party of philosophers are chosen. At any rate, the chosen moral philosophers debate among one another about the morality of certain issues. Once the proper moral standards are chosen, certain laws to be are questioned. Only those laws that are backed by morality are placed on the books, as it were, and, hence, become the law of the land.


emheilbrun: Posted: June 18, 2014 5:10 a.m.

So now we not only have Indy, the self proclaimed master debater, but also Robert Burton the cunning linguist.

All I can say is who needs The Onion when The Signal is publishing stuff like this.


BrianBaker: Posted: June 18, 2014 6:51 a.m.

So, Burton, AGAIN you can't answer the question!

"Ultimately, a party of philosophers are chosen."

BY WHOM?????


HOW???

WHAT PART OF THE CONSTITUTION AUTHORIZES THIS???



Okay, I think I've made my point, even to the dimmest bulb. Your so-called "plan" has no more substance than the fictional "study" you alluded to in your LTE. It's nonsense; something you just have rattling around in your skull.

This all reminds me of the kind of garbage we used to hear from hippies back in the 60s and 70s, rambling about their grand "visions" about how society "should be", while stoned on acid.

It's a waste of time.


RobertBurton: Posted: June 18, 2014 7:22 a.m.

I already told you, by Congress. I know no more than that. I think your questioning of me on this stuff is just plan silly. After all, I am not an expert on these types of things. Indeed, your questions are off the point of the matter. What is important revolves around the fact that moral philosophers confront the concept of morality as regards future laws on the books. Again, that is why our system of government rates the best over all other governments; that is, morality sets the stage for our posterity.


17trillion: Posted: June 18, 2014 7:33 a.m.

"At any rate, the chosen moral philosophers debate among one another about the morality of certain issues. Once the proper moral standards are chosen, certain laws to be are questioned.

Wow, this is straight out of Atlas Shrugged.


BrianBaker: Posted: June 18, 2014 7:41 a.m.

"I already told you, by Congress. I know no more than that."


For a guy who claims to be able to write so terrifically, your communication skills certainly are lacking. No, you did NOT say they were chosen by Congress.

Further, you didn't say anything about what part of the Constitution authorizes such a thing... I guess because there is NO such action that meets constitutional muster. Therefore your "plan" is just a bunch of inane nonsense.

"After all, I am not an expert on these types of things."

The FIRST thing you've written that makes sense, and is certainly accurate.

"Indeed, your questions are off the point of the matter."


Only in the "mind" of someone who knows absolutely zero about the Constitution, law, and government. They are exactly ON point.

If you read the Constitution and Federalist Papers, as you claim, you clearly didn't pay any attention.


chefgirl358: Posted: June 18, 2014 8:38 a.m.

Burton...you are a total tool. Stick that in your pipe and smoke it.

BINGO! BINGO! BINGO!


RobertBurton: Posted: June 18, 2014 8:41 a.m.

Conservatives are mean spirited, as your silly comments testify to--one silly comment by you after another. My proposal to help eliminate racism in America should be thought of as a wonderful attempt to get rid of immoral language that threatens to do in the American way of life! You just sit on your butt minus the courage it takes to implement a proposal for the betterment of the American populace! I am taking action in order to rid a wrong of hatred for certain groups of people within our nation.


EgbertSouse4U: Posted: June 18, 2014 8:50 a.m.

Burton: It's also pretty amusing that you think that only conservatives are calling you out. I have a news flash for you. Anyone who has studied American history and/or civics can see how nothing you write has ANY connection to American law. So you would like Congress to appoint some "professional philosophers" to construct law? Put down the bong and turn off "Touched by an Angel" already.


RobertBurton: Posted: June 18, 2014 9:14 a.m.

Do you not admit that it takes no courage at all to sit on your butt and do nothing to help America become a better nation? You are just a silly bystander who has no attempts at trying to improve upon the quality of our nation--4U. On the other hand, I care deeply about the welfare of our country. I should be applauded by you, et al. By the way, Sigmund Freud once said that writing proposals and theories for the betterment of mankind represents a great form of courage. Have you ever heard of Sigmund Freud?


AlwaysRight: Posted: June 18, 2014 9:15 a.m.

Mr. Burton- suggestion. Instead of threatening to fine or arrest people for speech that is deemed "hateful" (and BB makes a great point- who is the judge of that), why not do this;

Ignore it

Hateful and stupid people make statements all the time. Simply disregard it. Its simply a reflection on their character and quality. When it gets out of hand, you have the freedom to speak against it. That's the beauty of our nation- people are free to voice their opinions, no matter how ugly.

Lois and I posses more intelligence in one finger, so to speak, than you do in your entire body, and the fact that she is a fan of mine makes me marvel with excitement! As you know, 4U, I speak only the truth. I say that only the liberal writers make any sense; the conservatives spend all of their time trying to demean, rather than admitting their slight regard for proper English skills. Lois and I could help you out, but you are too hung on yourself to ever admit your failure as a writer as well as a thinker.

Do you stoop so low as to worry about a silly typo? 4U, you are having a treat in commenting with a superior class of people than yourself! That is good for you, because it makes you better able to view proper English skills from the pedagogical minds of me and Lois. As I say, though, any more of this education to you from Lois and me and you will need to start paying us. After all, you are getting first-rate literary instruction by us at no charge to you, presently. That needs to change. I will think of a proper financial charge for you, payable to Lois and me. It is only fair.


EgbertSouse4U: Posted: June 18, 2014 11:16 a.m.

Thanks, Lois Burton. If I ever need a lesson in becoming a fantasy-absorbed illiterate, you'll be my first call.


RobertBurton: Posted: June 18, 2014 12:06 p.m.

I doubt--with the exception of just being mean--anyone in their right mind would call me illiterate. By the way, Freud called that "projection." That is, you project out to somebody what is really in yourself--because that which is in you is too hard to take. However, knowing yourself represents the chief sign in overall maturity, because it makes you deal with what is real in yourself, 4U. Again, stop projecting out to other people what is in yourself. Indeed, you need to come to grips with how you view yourself, pronto.

I am not certain what you mean, 11. My current letters to the editor are all in The Signal. At least, for the past three years--almost--my letters are in The Signal. During the early 1980s, I had my letters to the editor published in the Los Angeles Daily News for about four years. Altogether, I have been published ninety-one times, most of which have been letters to the editor--but not all. My brother, who lives in the state of Michigan, has all ninety-one publications; I only have the publications for The Signal.


chefgirl358: Posted: June 18, 2014 12:50 p.m.

Omigod you guys...they're in love! Don't you see what this is? Two soulmates have found one another here, on our little forum...we should get them together. They could play BINGO! and go for little walks or take the senior shuttle (driving is too dangerous! Bingo!) and watch tv shows of their day like The Honeymooners, or Leave it to Beaver. Hopefully Mr. Burton is tall enough to reach the pesky mailbox for height challenged Lois. And if they do drive they need to watch out for right turns on red, crosswalks, parking lots, and pedestrians on cellphones. Maybe they could attend an AARP conference together? Or some sort of liberal symposium?

Awwww it's sweet that they met here, and will provide the rest of us with endless entertainment with their superior and enlightened viewpoints. Bingo! Bingo! INane! BIngo Inane! Oops, I don't know what came over me...I was channeling Lois/projalice there for a moment.

Pefect!


Perfect personification of the "Leftist Loop".


Start out with a silly thesis that you can't defend when it's challenged. Then wander far afield by raising other irrelevant issues, that you STILL can't defend successfully.

Then, once you've had your head handed to you on a plate, start whining about being a "victim".


Burton: "Conservatives are mean spirited... I should be applauded by you, et al... the conservatives spend all of their time trying to demean... I doubt--with the exception of just being mean--anyone in their right mind would call me illiterate...".

Well, boo-hoo-wah, Burton.

Maybe if you didn't come up with such weird, indefensible tripe you wouldn't be crying in your towel.

I am trying to see the errors of your ways, and they are many. Indeed, conservatives possess many errors, the worst of which revolves around the fact that they are barely literate, and, because of that character flaw, they always resort to attacking the person instead of his, or her, literary work. By the way, I answered all eighty questions correctly in my Biblical test. Now, I shall be baptized! The crybaby is you, et al. You cannot stomach people who think better than you, and write better than all of you.


EgbertSouse4U: Posted: June 18, 2014 3:31 p.m.

Well, at least I taught him/her how to correctly spell "possess" this time around.

NO NEED TO THANK ME, LOIS BURTON. THIS ONE IS ON THE HOUSE!


projalice11: Posted: June 18, 2014 3:51 p.m.

Mr. Burton the post below did not pertain to you..

"To the fraternity and sorority posters where are your letters to the editor ??"

This question still has not been answered ??



RobertBurton: Posted: June 18, 2014 4:36 p.m.

4U, Little thoughts for little minds, I dare say. Going over all the nonsense of you conservatives, makes it difficult to actually get down to real work. Sense your positions are so bizarre, I suggest that all of you thrown in the towel, so to speak, and just admit your failure to think of anything with substance. Indeed, the time is now to admit to yourself that better days are not in store for you, but, rather, only a deeper- and- deeper hole in which to cover up your ignorant mental capacities.


EgbertSouse4U: Posted: June 18, 2014 4:50 p.m.

I guess now would not be a good time to tell you that I am not a conservative, huh?


NEXT.....


BrianBaker: Posted: June 18, 2014 5:03 p.m.

Okay, too funny. I need a list.

1. Phony "study".

2. "Plan" that actually isn't a "plan" but a weird amorphous "dream" with no basis in law or the Constitution.

3. "War on women".

4. The old "racism" card.

5. The "I'm a victim" meme, with the "conservatives are mean and nasty" topping.

6. "I'm being baptized", yet another irrelevance gratuitously thrown into the mix.


Did I miss anything?

Quite the journey...


RobertBurton: Posted: June 18, 2014 5:13 p.m.

4U, then why are you acting like one? I am supporting the liberal side of the intellectual spectrum. We liberals have the side of right in our corner, and that is precisely why I am so persistence in educating as many conservatives as possible. After all, we have voting rights here in America, so it is important that I try my best to get them to reason, clearly! I realize that that mission is extremely difficult to behold, but I continue onward in its pursuit. In that way, I am somewhat Godlike.


ohhyaa: Posted: June 18, 2014 5:39 p.m.

RobertBurton: Posted: June 18, 2014 6:05 p.m.

BrianBaker, you should never talk about a thinker's weak points, but only on those points in which one excels, for the human mind is so frail that even geniuses make mistakes every so often! As regards me, unlike conservatives, I cling to very important issues of the day, especially my pending proposal to lessen the amount of racism in our country. By the way, a person does not have the right to do something immoral, and racist talk is immoral. New theories always tend to be met with resistance, but I shall bravely proceed.


BrianBaker: Posted: June 18, 2014 7:28 p.m.

Ah!

Now I get to add "unwanted personal advice and guidance" to the list. I guess that's #7.



Burton: "I cling to very important issues of the day, especially my pending proposal to lessen the amount of racism in our country."

Bringing us back to #2. Truly a "Leftist Loop", on a continuous loop at that.

The "proposal" with no basis in law or the Constitution. In other words, a pipe dream. Fantasy.




"By the way, a person does not have the right to do something immoral, and racist talk is immoral."

And once again, the question then becomes WHO gets to decide what's "immoral"?

I think leftism is completely immoral. Therefore, Burton, as I said, I hope you enjoy your new home in the American gulag.

Now that we've run this in at least two complete circles. Loops.

LOL


"New theories always tend to be met with resistance, but I shall bravely proceed."


Be sure to keep me posted. The suspense is killing me.


EgbertSouse4U: Posted: June 18, 2014 7:49 p.m.

Burton: " We liberals have the side of right in our corner, and that is precisely why I am so persistence in educating as many conservatives as possible."


OK. Firstly, I am going to ignore yet another atrocious sentence from the English major and move right on to the subject. Mr. Burton. Do you HONESTLY believe that one party is "mean" and the other nice?? You don't think that everybody wants the same basic things out of life, just differ on the methods? You, Mr. Burton, are the most cynical person on this thread, and you are posing as some kind of sympathetic intellectual. Why don't you try to quit drawing sides and just examine each issue independently? You sound like a child. --edited.


emheilbrun: Posted: June 18, 2014 8:03 p.m.

This was a really pathetic LTE. But even more pathetic was that someone at The Signal actually decided that it was worthy of publication.

"A competitor to The Signal once did a study which, ultimately, concluded that liberal writers are much more honest in their writings than are conservative writers."

Seriously?! More than anything, this is a reflection of The Signal.


BrianBaker: Posted: June 18, 2014 8:05 p.m.

Egbert, gotta tell you, you hit on one of THE most significant differences between the Right and the Left in this sentence of yours:

"Do you HONESTLY believe that one party is 'mean' and the other nice??"


OH, yeah. Absolutely. It's a DEFINING difference.

Generally speaking, the Right believes people on the Left are misguided, maybe stupid, certainly illogical, dependably hypocritical, but still just everyday Joe Sixpacks like everyone else.

The Left believes people on the Right are E-E-E-E-E-VIL!!!

We believe they can be educated; shown the real answers through reasoned debate and education.

They believe we're beneath contempt, and the ends justify the means, so they can lie, cheat and steal their way to their goals, because their goals are "worthy", and justify any tactics used to advance them.

After all, THEY know so much better than WE do what's good for us. We're not capable of making our own decisions. Only Big Government can do that....... for the "good of all", of course.

Hence Burton's babble about his "proposal" to make undefined "morality" a determinant on whether or not someone has actual freedom of speech.

In the Land Of Lefties, actual free speech is total anathema.


RobertBurton: Posted: June 18, 2014 8:08 p.m.

I must sign off for the rest of the night--because I need to continue my study of Lev. 23: 1-14, for I must read that passage in front of the congregation, soon. Indeed, I am a liberal Christian, and we need more of us. For the conservatives out and about, I think that that is the only issue-Christianity--that I agree with you on. Therefore, let us reason from that point of agreement! Nothing helps the cause more than to have a common thread. Indeed, I believe in God, and Jehovah is his name.

Mr. Burton I knew we had a lot in common..
I too have many LTE published in various newspapers through out the country,
including many So. Calif Newspapers..

I take great pride in the way my LTE have been received, and the way posters
have embraced them with their comments..

Some of the posters don't agree, and that is expected, but at least when they post
they are civil, courteous and render some constructive criticism..

Good night Mr. Burton, and thank you for the straight forward dialogue,
a rarity in these parts..

Hope to be hearing from you soon ..

RobertBurton: Posted: June 19, 2014 2:32 a.m.

I know that this will be another long day for submitting posts, because I also know that you conservatives shall be trying at all times to prevent the pretty picture of a racist-free America. Oh, now you conservatives are all for my racist-free America, but, when my proposal becomes the law of the land, if you will, you will be running scared--because, admit it, conservatives are light years more racist than liberals. That is why liberals support my proposal, but conservatives do not. Support my proposal, one and all--liberals and conservatives, et al.


emheilbrun: Posted: June 19, 2014 5:23 a.m.

I'm a Heisenberg fan too! He was a liberal AND he understood the basic chemistry. What's that? You said Eisenberg, not Heisenberg? Oh, then I don't know what the hell you're talking about.


RobertBurton: Posted: June 19, 2014 1:00 p.m.

I knew that I could outlast you, the conservatives, because that is another fault of the far right of center, that is, no staying power. Also, your writing is so suspect that readers are lead astray. Indeed, better is to admit defeat because, if you continue on in your nonsensical writings, naïve readers might start to think that your inane writing skills should be followed, closely, and that would be absolute disaster! By the way, Lois had another thoughtful letter today--in The Signal.

Maybe we should let the guest readers decide.

OMG what a circle jerk. Shouldn't you all be off somewhere pretending Liberals care what Al Gore has to say about man-made global warming?

It doesn't get any better than this.

And it is free.

Well, I had the tie-hard conservatives against the ropes, if you will, and late in the final rounds, but now I have new opponents that want to mix it up with me. Actually, I was getting most tired with the same-old inane comments from their hostile right-of-center nonsense. In truth, I have always been a respectful type of human being, but I learned that if you are going to take on conservatives you must learn to be contentious at all times. When you think about it, that is sad. I hope you two are civil.

"Well, I had the tie-hard conservatives against the ropes,"


Talk about delusional!

Truly a legend in his own mind.



(BTW, Mr. English Language Expert...."tie-hard"?... You kidding me?.... and you criticize OTHERS about their language usage?)


RobertBurton: Posted: June 20, 2014 10:16 p.m.

Well, not much activity today as regards posts, but that is fine with me, because I had a mountain of church work to do, and today I got most of it completed. Also, I feel good knowing that I was victorious over the ruffian bath of conservatives--now laid to rest, so to speak, once and for all, and, to think, I alone were their master! I think that they finally realized that I am the real deal, that is, their teacher. Without paying for my pedagogical services, they have been my students, albeit difficult students.


RobertBurton: Posted: June 20, 2014 10:42 p.m.

Even I make a typo from time to time, but little things like that are only important to small minds. Indeed, small thoughts for small minds. If I were to write a typo every time I step up to the plate, as it were, that would be cause for alarm, but such is not the case--as you know. You are just being contentious for no other reason than that is your nature. You make errors galore in your writings, but I just ride them off to the inherent nature of diehard conservatives. By the way, my pedagogical lessons for you are not completed. Indeed, pay close attention. No more posts for me today. Sleep is next for me. Ta. Ta.

WTFrappuccino are you talking about dude? You're a rambling fool Burton. You and Lois both should be submitted for a 72 hour psych hold.

I'm surprised you stayed up as late as your last post quite frankly. I figure you probably typically knock out after you and Lois hit the early bird special somewhere and play a quick round of BINGO! at the senior center. Just curious, where are the popular senior meal deals nowadays? Sizzler perhaps?


RobertBurton: Posted: June 20, 2014 1:59 a.m.

Oh, no, back to one of original conservatives--marked by ad hominem attacks, and nothing else. Well, at least, you are upright enough to tell me that you are a bad reader. I can help you to become a better reader, as well as a better writer. First, never skip over words. Second, do not read too fast. Third, never read with your mouth open. As time goes on, I will give you more pointers, but, for now, practice those three. I shall comment on writing skills on a different post. In the meantime, start thinking positive thoughts. Before you know it, you will know what I am talking about. Also, with age, comes maturity--a rarity among conservatives.


BrianBaker: Posted: June 20, 2014 1:05 p.m.

Yes, yes, Burton. As I said, you are indeed a legend in your own mind.

HIGHLY entertaining.


RobertBurton: Posted: June 21, 2014 9:23 p.m.

BrianBaker, How is it that you can call a person a deserter minus a trial in a court of law? Were not you the one who says that our U.S. Constitution must be obeyed? Indeed, your position to call one a deserter without a trial in a court of law is most un-American. People in America are innocent until proven guilty, but not in your case, hey. You know your un-American letter to the editor that I am commenting about! Indeed, you need a taste of your own medicine! I guess that that is the way it is with conservatives.


BrianBaker: Posted: June 21, 2014 10:29 p.m.

Wrong thread, Burton. Take that discussion over there, where I've already answered that stupidly lame question many times.

Like I said, "A legend in your own mind".

Res ipsa loquitur.
