    EBL, as a boxer, those cats sure ain’t boxing. Reminds me of when we used to trade hobos six-packs for piggy-back rides. Nothing looked good about it.

    re: “Congress seek to legalize” – American propaganda against Americans

    I assumed they did this already. But seeing it in writing like that, ready to become written law, scares me. I’m more and more sorry that I still live in this country. Our elected leaders really do have a lot of contempt for us.

    You lost this in the previous thread, Deoxy. There’s no point in repeating it.

    Yes, I lost the battle to get publicly known, common law, centuries old, 101-level ethics facts through to people who don’t want to hear them, such as yourself.

    But yes, on the second point, you’re most certainly correct.

    You know, the thread where you were arguing that it was totally cool to use “lynching” in reference to Zimmerman being brought to trial. The only question being whether you know you’re being a racist jackass or if you’re just Randall.

    “And so, to what is likely (based entirely on your earlier responses to others on this thread) your great delight, I am no longer going to respond to you.”

    And yet you’re yapping at me again, Deoxy. I should have known that was a promise you couldn’t keep.
