Lets see who IS the strawman!!!!
The straw-man rhetorical technique is the practice of refuting weaker arguments than one's opponents actually offer. To "set up a straw man" or "set up a straw-man argument" is to create a position that is easy to refute, then attribute that position to your opponent.
Your argument is from anger- undirected anger as you are angry with everyone - including yourself. Anger when directed can be a learning experience- your problem is you have points in all directions- which is like having no point at all!!!! You don't wish to learn anything but your inner rhyme.
One can set up a straw man in several different ways:
1. Present only a portion of the opponent's arguments (often a weak one), refute it, and pretend that all of their arguments have been refuted.
You haven't answered any of my questions about your beliefs in a fashion that can establish what you believe. Look at your blog- Can't even decide whether you're a buddhist, a left wingnut a woman or a man. It gets worse
2. Present the opponent's argument in weakened form, refute it, and pretend that the original has been refuted.
Nothing you've said even remotely refutes any aspect of my stance and you want me to answer, what, whether I'm a Wiccan or some other drivel. What do you base your claptrap on? Guessing?
3. Present a misrepresentation of the opponent's position, refute it, and pretend that the opponent's actual position has been refuted.
What the hell does that mean? Is Jebus a Commie? Where do I say that? I think corporations and the American government exercise the communist doctrines and at the same time push the idea that communism is Bad. Do you think realistic ideas that Jebus preaches but no christian actually follows fits in this area? Dream on.
4. Present someone who defends a position poorly as the defender, refute their arguments, and pretend that every argument for that position has been refuted.
I don't have time to read your nonsense completely, self aggrandisement is a minimal device of usage when someone hasn't a stand outside of anger issues to talk about, as your stand represents. I never ask anyone else to help my discussions. I see though how you argue from anger against any who disagree with you( mga).
5. Invent a fictitious persona with actions or beliefs that are criticised, and pretend that the person represents a group that the speaker is critical of.
Toshiro Tsu is a real character? As I said, you obviously live in a dream world where others who say, on a right wingnut board compliment your genius(that is something to be proud of,- a bunch of rightwingnuts complimenting you) that you complain about, make you feel power and control. Dream on little man.
Boy, you live the white ass persona of the proverbial strawman. Please remember, Do you want real TRUTH in capital letters? Then search yourself for why you believe the things you do. Don't be afraid to analyze why your religion gives you the high it does. Answer yourself this question: Is TRUTH important enough for me to give up my religion if that is required?
Until you answer yes to this you are not being honest with yourself.
Religion can be as easy as what you believe about yourself, mudman!!!!!!

MGA- Bucky doesn't realize that the forum you quoted was from Shit Tsu's blog about himself. Is he the fairy that Bucky spoke of? Perhaps Bucky is more perceptive than we gave him credit for.
Some logic textbooks define the straw-man fallacy only as a misrepresented argument. It is now common, however, to use the term to refer to all of these tactics. The straw-man technique is also used as a form of media manipulation.
I would say you use it as a form of protestation for your inadequacies and as an agent of subterfuge and mendacity, as your blog is so full of shit as to make anyone laugh in disbelief that anyone could genuinely believe this alimental bullshit that you spew. You have no power and control. Admit it and be free of your inadequacies as a human. This is your greatest fear, that you'll be found out as a nothing. That is why you seek out gratification from others, instead of letting it go and being truly free.
You have to know what you have to do to keep them from hurting you.
Freethinkers are those who are willing to use their minds without prejudice and without fearing to understand things that clash with their own customs, privileges, or beliefs. This state of mind isn't common, but it is essential for right thinking; where it is absent, discussion is apt to become worse than useless. Discussion with you is getting worse than useless. Take it out on your BLOG.
