I'm sorry. I shouldn't respond to insults with insults. I apologize for sinking down to that level.

It's all part of life.

You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. What one person receives without working for another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.

True..but it doesn't need to be a part of this forum.

So, life should be different here than anywhere else?

Sorry but that's unrealistic.

That's one of the things I like about you though..... you're a dreamer.

This is a forum for discussing and debating politics, not for personal attacks. If you want to flame people, go to OTD.

I agree that the personal attacks have no place. I will try to make sure that my posts don't contain them. Attacking someone's opinion though, is different. :smile:

This forum would be a lot more productive if insults weren't allowed. I feel like I'm listening to 3rd graders when I read most of the posts. There is a lot of immaturity here, and that's one reason I don't post that much.

You think that having an intelligent debate without flames is unrealistic?...how tragic for you.

I'd say the tragedy is yours.

Not all can be as good as Rono the Wonderful.

Haha, classic.  A political/activism forum the same as lockerroom joking the same as a beatnik poetry reading the same as prowrestling shit-talking the same as OT discussion...  :tongue:

Life is life. It's the same no matter where you go.

The sad thing is how few realize this is like a locker room.

A rather entertaining one and one I have no doubt you'd like for your own if you knew how good it is.

I guess you didn't catch the humor of Happy Gilmore. Or that tourism commercial with the Jamaican boaters fighting over dock spaces like NY cab drivers.

Don' homogenize it mon!

You see, about a month ago I was on a campaign to make Poland Carebearland. I had good intentions, but Alex comes along and...

Actually I don't know either. Alex?

Reagan organised an anti-soviet television special in the early 80's featuring Abba called "Let Poland Be Poland". The idea of Reagan doing that always makes me smile for some reason  :laugh:

That's simply because it's not for your entertainment... it's for mine.
Sadly for you, I'm not here to entertain you.
