Brown v. Board

Why do we have to include the entire text of the decision? No real encyclopedia would do that. NTemple 23.45 16 Dec 2008 (EST)

You may have a point. I am almost positive the site owner, a lawyer, included that information.--jpatt 23:54, 16 December 2008 (EST)
That's great, but isn't this a wiki? Should the founder's actions dictate our edits? --NTemple
We are not Wikipedia. Many of us defer to the founder because of his authority over us. In this area, he also can be considered an expert. Geoff PlourdeComplain! 00:12, 17 December 2008 (EST)
What about linking to the text in a subpage, so it's on the encyclopedia but still off the front page of the article?-AlexanderM 00:20, 17 December 2008 (EST)

I still oppose this. It's a bloated article that we can streamline. We should summarize the ruling, and link to the full text elsewhere, perhaps even a "Conservasource" site (a la Wikisource)? The article, as it stands, is far from encyclopedic. We should focus on concisness. I'm sure even Mr. Schlafly would agree. --NTemple 20:54, 17 December 2008 (EST)

AlexanderM seems to present a compromise, I will not intercede any longer on your changes NTemple.--jpatt 22:23, 17 December 2008 (EST)

Image in Obama article.

Could you please explain how the image in necessary to the article? --Tim (CPAdmin1)talk Vote in my NEW polls 11:29, 12 June 2008 (EDT)

Can you explain how the image of a soldier bording a blackhawk helicopter on a mission against insurgents is necessary to McCains page? I don't want to cause trouble. I will stop reposting the picture.

Ok, I just removed the picture from the McCain article. --Tim (CPAdmin1)talk Vote in my NEW polls 11:47, 12 June 2008 (EDT)
Whatever Tim, you failed to hold Obama accountable. You failed to oppose abortion. You helped hide Obamas record. I came back to Conservapedia directly because of that picture.--jp 11:57, 12 June 2008 (EDT)
Congrats, leftwinger, you win now but are a loser for life.--jp 12:07, 12 June 2008 (EDT)
I have no objection to an image like that if it is in the abortion article. It just has no place in the Obama article. I do hold Obama accountable. The Quote is still in the article. I do oppose abortion. I am not hiding Obama'a record. And for the record I am completely opposed to Obama. --Tim (CPAdmin1)talk Vote in my NEW polls 12:30, 12 June 2008 (EDT)
So we disagree. I know you are trying to be fair to make this site the best it can be. However, I think your arguement is weak and hope for it to change. Would you replace Obamas smiling picture with one where he is smoking a cigarette?--jp 14:03, 12 June 2008 (EDT)

Jehovah's Witnesses

Please note the criteria that we used for the Christianity article. A group must have support from some areas of traditional Christianity that the doctrine of the sect includes them within Christianity. It must be beyond self-identifcation. Learn together 17:59, 14 July 2008 (EDT)

They use the bible for their scripture, they believe in Jesus Christ. If not a Christian group, what do you call them? Disputed because of their beliefs --jp 18:28, 14 July 2008 (EDT)

They believe in Jesus Christ - as a man. There is no God but Jehovah. Using the same Scriptures does not necessarily equate to Christianity. Learn together 19:18, 14 July 2008 (EDT)

DNC Detention center

Thought I'd catch you here with some comments before this is published as a News item. The detention center is the plan and responsibility of the Denver Police Department, not the DNC. The latter has no role in arresting or detaining protesters. Also, the Republican party has had to take bad press over how protesters were handled during their 2004 convention in NYC:

"At the 2004 Republican National Convention in New York City, more than 1,000 people — a reported record for a convention — were detained at Pier 57, a long, concrete pier off the Hudson River that was converted into a detention center for arrestees. The New York Police Department formed an agreement with the Hudson River Park Trust to use the pier as a massive makeshift jail. According to documents obtained by the New York American Civil Liberties Union, police were allowed to use the 140,000-square-foot facility and its parking lot to process and hold arrestees. Razor-wire security fencing around the pier’s parameter was also installed before the convention.

Along with the mass arrests came accusations of civil rights violations from within the detention area, where detainees claimed that long exposure to motor oil and other contaminants from the pier left many arrestees sick."

Please be careful when adding categories. Since Saints is already a subcategory under Catholicism, there is not need to put Catholicism as a category as well. Please undo these edits that added the Catholicism category to those classified under Saints. Also, I am concerned with the building up of a Catholicism category while there is already a Catholic Church category running parallel. Our philosophy on categories is to keep them streamlined and easy to managage - and not redundant. Learn together 12:42, 25 August 2008 (EDT)

I was waiting to hear back from Debra (wikiproject: religion) which I brought up the same concerns. Merge Catholicism into Catholic Church seems logical. I'll work to replace Saints additional category's(with Catholic Church) or do you propose no Catholic Church category or Catholicism category all together on Saints, thereby just leaving Saints category? -- 50 star flag.png jp 15:15, 25 August 2008 (EDT)

My Own Quote

I want to explain further in case you don't get it. Only good can come from God. If the Atheist can only contribute (man minus God), than they contribute nothing good. If an Atheist saves a person's life, it is of God's work and not the non-believer that accomplished this feat. -- 50 star flag.png jp 02:24, 2 September 2008 (EDT)

So, by your logic if an atheist chooses not to save ones life, its gods fault that this one dies, because an atheist cannot save a life, correct me if I am wrong please -- Ekeegan

I can easily say "All good comes from God, therefore man contributes nothing.......on his own. Most people that recognize God, knows that is not them that accomplishes anything. The "Thank God" comment is often used. However, an athiest would never say "Thank God" because they have nobody to thank but themselves. Wrongly assuming It wasn't God, it was all me. "So, by your logic if an atheist chooses not to save ones life" than it was God's plan. The light of good shines on the creatures of the Creator.-- 50 star flag.png jp 00:54, 4 September 2008 (EDT)

More Categories

Please don't add Christianity and Catholic Church categories to Biblical Books. There is already a Bible subcategory under Christianity. For that matter don't put Popes under Catholic Church as there is already a subcategory. Please undo these changes.

Saul Alinsky

I removed your update regarding Lucifer. I couldn't find a citation anywhere, and a claim like that definitely needs to be cited. Feel free to reinsert it after you've found a source. Jeffrey W. LauttamusDiscussion 13:22, 26 September 2008 (EDT)

I suggest going to a library and verifying the source from the book itself. Karajou 13:24, 26 September 2008 (EDT)
Found a source. It's in a preface that my version of Rules for Radicals doesn't contain. I think the source is verifiable and accurate, though I don't know which edition of the book that it's in. I'll reinsert it now. Jeffrey W. LauttamusDiscussion 13:29, 26 September 2008 (EDT)

Yeah, I just found one myself. I think the direct quote is " over-the-shoulder acknowledgment to the very first radical . . . who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom — Lucifer."

RE: block

Don't you think it was a bit much to block without warning? A quick search of my edit history shows that I am (was) obviously not a troll and make (made) constructive edits. I was obviously unaware that people are supposed to give the articles an obvious conservative slant and troll on their own articles. I was of the opinion that this was supposed to be a balanced wiki (i.e., not leaning to either direction). But, I am partly to blame; I should have done a little more research (because the whole "allegedly" thing was started by the Grand Poobah, Aschafly, himself), which is quite unfortunate because this site (had) a lot of potential but will never be taken seriously now because of the ridiculous, fascist principles that guide the "sysops" (and I use that term very loosely). The main reason is because as liberally biased as wikipedia is, Conservapedia is orders of magnitude (i.e., factors of ten) more biased in the opposite direction. Have fun being a big wheel semi-sysop on this no name wiki. You're like a Tackleberry security guard that could never make it in a real police force. If you want to prove me wrong, try existing in Wikipedia. In good faith, I will help you learn how to actually edit and maintain a serious wiki. If you need help contact me here. But I don't think you will because you all live in this fantasy land. Well, I suppose I'm blocked/banned now or whatever and hopefully my userpage won't get vandalized (which would just prove my point even more). Have fun "policing" all twelve people that edit on this farce. I hope you prove me wrong. So, I am banned now I assume. Regards. --SlapHappy 15:27, 5 October 2008 (EDT)

Just dumb and moronic comments. Again, another user was removing "allegedly" from BO's page. I would reinsert only to find the same person delete once again. A reasonable block of 1 day followed. Then smart guy SlapHappy decides to remove allegedly just minutes later after all that just took place. He earned a reasonable block of three days. Now he complains that CP can't be taken seriously and that blocking rights by CP are fascist. Personally, I will never edit Wikipedia for it is a fraudulent website. A place SlapHappy should make home. I feel that this person should be banned for life. I am reasonable and gave the problem child another 3 days. Feel free to extend the block if you agree with me.--Jpatt 15:40, 5 October 2008 (EDT)
Jpatt, you have been more than fair to SlapHappy. I will extend this to one week as he also used a profane abbreviation in a recent post which perhaps you didn't notice - though I am sure that an 'infinite' would be more appropriate and will be coming shortly. However, wheels within wheels and all that - he may not deserve, but will get, a second chance. More strength to your elbow! Bugler 16:20, 5 October 2008 (EDT)

The Bible provides clear and easy to understand guidelines for determining who is going to heaven and who is going to hell.

Sorry guys, Buddha is toast. WayneD

Wayne, I can tell you have strong faith in Christ. I just want to educate you, you don't have to believe coming from my denomination, but here it goes.

As a Catholic, we believe that knowing and denying Jesus is enough to prevent your inclusion in Heaven. But, if you lived in a remote jungle, lived a life without even hearing the name of Jesus. You died and faced the creator in judgment. It is said that this person can enter Heaven. Now, I don't know enough about Buddha because I don't follow him. However, I believe he was a generation before Christ. If true, that would make his life devoid of Jesus. If Buddha had a heart for love, a love for God, seperated from knowing the real Truth, THAT LOVE IS GOD, then meeting Christ in judgement, HE SURELY WOULD HAVE BENT HIS KNEE TO CHRIST AND CONFESSED WITH HIS TONGUE, JESUS IS GOD. Thereby entering Heaven. --Jpatt 17:34, 11 October 2008 (EDT)

Jessica, this is my fault. I asked CPWebmaster today/yesterday to add the four letter word to the spam filter because it seemed to be missing and a vandal had used it explicitly.

Shadow party

Hi, first of all great work on starting an insightful and promising article. Please keep in mind that it's always best to use multiple sources, and when you are copying from one source you need to reference properly. Although facts and user created summaries can be referenced using the <ref> and </ref> tags, large amounts of copied or paraphrased text needs to be attributed directly (as I have done on the page).

In light of the recent spree of vandalism on JY23's talk page, could it be protected long enough for the vandal in question to get bored and go do something else? Just an idea. ETrundel 12:21, 20 December 2008 (EST)

Yes, it can be locked but not be me, I don't have lock-page rights, just lock-down of the entire site.--jpatt 12:22, 20 December 2008 (EST)
D: I guess we have to weather it for now. ETrundel 12:24, 20 December 2008 (EST)
Huh? My talk page hasn't been vandalized. JY23 13:17, 20 December 2008 (EST)
Etrundel, who was helpful, was commenting on the seven or so attempts on your user page before my user page antics. --jpatt 13:22, 20 December 2008 (EST)
Ah, thanks for clearing that up. Now that this whole load of junk is over, back to the Orioles roster! JY23 13:25, 20 December 2008 (EST)

Looks like this was a busy morning! If you notice a pattern, make a note of it, email me, and we can range-block a limited area or at least check it out and see if it's a certain anonymous proxy, or whatever. ;-) - --₮K/Talk! 13:28, 20 December 2008 (EST)

Thanks TK, I'll be sure to take you up on that offer. --Jpatt 13:31, 20 December 2008 (EST)
I don't know about you, but I saw a pattern. I believe there were four-some-odd users that all made vulgar jokes, the text was exactly the same. I think one of them was called LeslieV. That's all I remember. JY23 13:33, 20 December 2008 (EST)
I think they were all the same person, but Jpatt and I reverted most of the edits, and Jpatt blocked the relevant accounts (though they just made a new one). I had to leave before the end though, sorry Jpatt ;_; ETrundel 14:02, 20 December 2008 (EST)


Hi there - I need to please ask you a favour. (Do not worry,I shall be asking several other people the same favour too)

Please keep an eye on Conservapedia:Image upload requests (add it to your watchlist if need be) for requests by editors to upload pictures. Remember, our upload rights are not just for us to upload our pictures, for for us to help others. We both know what it is like to wait patiently for somebody to answer our request and I will not be here to keep an eye on it. Please can I ask you and the others to check if there are any requests outstanding. If nothing else, it will help an editor complete his article. Thank you and Merry Christmas! --KotomiTohayougozaimasu 20:17, 20 December 2008 (EST)

Superb blocks

Superb blocks, Jpatt! You're terrific. I find blocking to be good exercise.--aschlafly 10:02, 29 December 2008 (EST)

Thanks, Your site is terrific!--Jpatt 10:12, 29 December 2008 (EST)

Jesus article fix

I tried to revert some vandalism but I couldn't get past the multiple versions - do you know how to clean this up via revert? Thx. --DinsdaleP 15:46, 29 December 2008 (EST)

It's been fixed - nevermind. --DinsdaleP 15:56, 29 December 2008 (EST)

Happy New Year!

Cheers to a new year and another chance for us to get it right!--Oprah Winfrey

Congratulations on your promotion to Sysop (Admin) status! This gives you many new privileges. Well deserved!--aschlafly 23:44, 31 December 2008 (EST)

This site is great, thanks for everything and for the terrific honor to start the coming year with! --Jpatt 04:09, 1 January 2009 (EST)
Congrats Jp. I appeciate all your contributions to the news project and hope to work with you this year. Now you can add your own news items to the Main page. --DeanStalk 01:26, 1 January 2009 (EST)
Many thanks, I owe much of my success to working with my project leader- You! I intend to work closely with you in the future. --Jpatt 04:09, 1 January 2009 (EST)
and many congratulations (and happy new year!) from me too. I look forward to working even closer with you this year. --KotomiTohayougozaimasu 06:24, 1 January 2009 (EST)
Congratulations! --User:Joaquín Martínez, talk 09:07, 1 January 2009 (EST)

Welcome back. HenryS 23:18, 8 June 2008 (EDT)

Thanks! My self imposed exile has ended. I refuse to post in the debate section, stay clear of Conservapedia liberals and promise to add, for the benefit of the Truth.--jp 23:28, 8 June 2008 (EDT)

Short leash requested for this character--jp 08:41, 23 July 2008 (EDT)

Hmmm...two reasons to remove that picture now. --Jareddr 12:04, 12 June 2008 (EDT)

Congrats! Seemed all that copy-and-pasting paid off for you! --Jareddr 12:41, 6 July 2008 (EDT)

Do you have any other references, preferably something a little more substantial, for the Abramoff money edits? The "source" doesn't link to any FEC filings or anything else---it just makes the claim. I'd like to see something a little bit more verifiable than their accusations. --Jareddr 10:25, 11 July 2008 (EDT)

Answering a request with three questions...interesting tactic. Unfortunately, your response didn't contain any official source, such as FEC records, showing Abramoff donated personally to Democrats. In fact, the one source you did add said the exact opposite, "All of Mr. Abramoff's personal contributions went to Republicans." Perhaps you could check CQ's website for donations from Abramoff. I'll be happy to fulfill your requests as soon as you fulfill mine.  :::--Jareddr 10:45, 11 July 2008 (EDT)

Actually, Jpatt, if you followed politics, as opposed to just copying-and-pasting from RW sources, you'd know the difference between "lobby money" and "lobbying-financed trips" or "receiving lavish gifts in exchange for political favors." In fact, why don't we go through the list of convictions associated with the Abramoff scandal: Italia Federici, co-founder of the Council of Republicans for Environmental Advocacy, Rep. Bob Ney (R-OH), Former Deputy Interior Secretary Steven Griles, highest ranking Bush admin official to be convicted, Tony Rudy, lobbyist and one-time aide to DeLay, Former White House official David Safavian, Michael Scanlon, a former Abramoff business partner and DeLay aide, etc. Now, that's the official conviction list---and I don't see any Democrats on the list. And heck, taking money from a Native American tribe because Abramoff told them to do it---that's not illegal either. I have yet to see any convictions of Democrats based on legislation for lobbying money. So unless you are going to suggest that no Native American tribe can donate to a campaign, or even better, you can come up with some proof of legislation for lobbying money, well---don't waste your time here. Report it to the Department of Justice as I'm sure they'd be interested! My guess is, though, you got squat but what you read on some blog someplace.--Jareddr 11:50, 11 July 2008 (EDT)

First of all, what's with the quote box? Who quote boxes themselves? Second of all---people return donations because of people like you who try to make something from nothing. The appearance of impropriety is often as bad as the impropriety itself. Of course, when in doubt, go to the record--who has been convicted and who hasn't? Republicans convicted? Check. Democrats convicted? Nope. So you can try and make all you want of it, Jpatt, but in the end, you make CP look less encyclopedic and more RW-blogish. Not a good look for a RW-blog, and even worse for an encyclopedia. --Jareddr 12:31, 11 July 2008 (EDT)

Well, some Democrats decided to avoid the idea of any impropriety and returned all the money. Some Democrats decided that there was no impropriety so decided not to do anything about it. Shouldn't your question encompass the many Republicans that took money as well? You seem to jump over the nearly 3-1 Republican to Democrat ratio of received contributions. Heck, the only TRUE improprieties uncovered were ALL Republican, and ended in convictions. Try harder to vilify, Jpatt. When you're not copy-and-pasting your efforts are even worse. --Jareddr 12:48, 11 July 2008 (EDT)

If you're going to accuse me of getting the last word---you have to stop responding. I mean, you DID ask a question in your last response, so I was forced to respond. I'd hate to leave a sysop w/o an answer. And you should be thanking me anyway for editing your edits. I'm trying to make you, again without thanks, the best editor on CP.  :--) You're welcome! --Jareddr 13:11, 11 July 2008 (EDT)

Just wanted to thank you again for the rewrite on the Snow quote. I think you really hit it the second time. We're really beginning to work well together, and I think CP is the winner when that happens. Enjoy! --Jareddr 23:11, 22 July 2008 (EDT)

Thanks for giving me my own talk page section (even though it includes my thanks and compliments to you). I don't appreciate being called a "subway troll" though, and I believe that may violate a CP commandment against insults on a talk page against another user. That aside, I am working on a better CP attitude, and as part of that, hope that we can work together here at CP as I think we both can make great contributions. Looking forward to it! --Jareddr 08:55, 23 July 2008 (EDT)

Now you're just hurting my feelings. I hold out an olive branch, and get punched in the face in return. That's not very Christian, and as a fellow Roman Catholic, we both know that's not what Jesus Christ preached. --Jareddr 09:03, 23 July 2008 (EDT)

Edited out context

I note that you have only posted Jarreddr's posts here and suggested he's a troll. However you have deleted the comments you made to him. Now I entered that debate because it was becoming uncivil and, if I recall, it was you who was doing the name calling. Why have you deleted the context in which those comments appear. I also recall you starting a debate on what the name of the victims of Darfur should be called which was a total waste of time, and Jarreddr said so. I suggest that you are using your personal disagreement with Jarreddr to imply something that does not. It is not very flattering to you.--DamianJohn 08:58, 23 July 2008 (EDT)
