In response to softlaw2's comment:
Saying racism is not real, because race is arbitrary sounds like a racist trying to explain away his racism.
No, you are calling me what the Left calls those who dare challenge the pandering for votes nonsense of social engineering, quotas and the deluded notion of a "check the box" race (see 2010 census question and childish terms for race such as, and I quote from the 2010 US census "black" "African-American" "Nego" "White et al and the insturction to "mark one or more boxes"
In reality, people who use these terms and reflexively use invective like "racist" are always bigots. In fact, the 2010 census question is embarrassingly bigoted.
You've shown your true colors enough for everyone but BILL to see. Attacking the thruth teller is your MO; we all know that by now too.
It's funny how you throw the Racist word around freely, then claim it's been hijacked by leftists. You called me a racist for, I quote, "lowballing" Papi by suggesting a $22M/2 offer with easily reached incentives last year, and now you are crying over a $26M/2 year deal, and calling Ben incompetent for going 2 years.
I agree it was a waste of money. I merely pointed out your numbers were wrong. Any logical self reflecting human being would have said something very simple like this, "I meant to say $37M for 2013 and 2014, but you get my point: we overpaid for two guys starting the year on the DL," or "Yes, it's only $24.5M for 2013 and $11M or more for 2014, but it's still a huge overpay." Why is it so hard to say that? Instead you attack me and imply I am arguing against your point, and then try and lawyer your way around the wording by pretending your thread title is still accurate. It clearly is not even close to being right, and you and everyone but BILL knows it.
The fact is we made a bunch of mistakes this winter, but stretching the numbers to exaggerate the effect is propaganda, and actually hurts your point: a point that doesn't need stretching to be accurate. Why is it so hard for you to tell the truth?
