"Cheers to the understanding of other positions" For one who claims to be so open minded why is judgement on others positions passed so quickly? You don't understand me nor my positions. Must we all agree, can we not have our own thoughts? To complain about the nastiness but in the same breath to call others thoughts as "gap-ridden logic, bigoted conclusions" seems humorously ironic.
Hypocrisy: Simply failing to practice those virtues that one preaches. Can you honestly not see it?
D Coats: RUKIDDING? When did I ever claim to be open minded? ;) I do call a spade a spade however.
You see, this is part of the problem, you LOVE to ASSUME that you know what I'm talking about but then you open your mouth and its too obvious you don't.
Have you asked 'yourself' the same questions as you just asked above? Do you even bother to read what you write before pushing send or post? You do realize that others see it, right?
If so I stand by what I said and "challenge you" to use a bit more discretion, common respect and courtesy toward others and I'll try to just ignore you when you fail. DEAL?
Admittedly I can't tolerate bully's and react strongly (after all, the mods can't see it all and just let some ride down the road) whenever confronted with one. If you've seen my posts you would know exactly where I'm coming from in that regard. I believe you are a web-bully D Coats and its way to easy to bully people on the web, so I react.
Honestly I'd much rather ignore such 'certainty of thought' as I prefer debate with intelligence instead of arrogance, but you had to add your rant to the conversation which in the end added nothing but your low opinion of those whom you disagree with. So sad. :(
You definitely bring out the worse in me. What's your excuse? :-D
