  • It's never appropriate...except of course, when you're grasping at straws, and are desperately TRYING to silence the opposition!! Too bad it ALWAYS fails to materialize the way one hopes....and one's sanity and credibility become severely compromised!! LOL :o)

  • I don't know why it would be inappropriate if it was the truth

    Anything's appropriate if said in a nice way.

    If it's ignored, that just means no one agreed with you.
    And that's okay.

  • I don't like the posters depicting people as Hilter, as I feel they are more an attempt to make someone look evil rather than highligh Nazi like policies. I don't feel the general population is sophisticated enough to look at actual platforms rather than a kneejerk reaction to such images as Hitler = BAD. And while it's true Hitler = BAD when parties are compared to Naziism, there is generally another reason that is over the heads of most people. So I think the posters are dumb. But I don't mind when people point out actual similarities between policies and actions.


    I know I sound elitist. Sue me. Look around at most of the comments on CM. The majority are not that smart.

  • That probably looks like a slam to JJB. That wasn't intended.
