    yes I understand the reference - I read the book and did a book report about it when I was in HS many years ago.

    That's a really terrible argument in favour of poor strategic decision making.

    OF's promotion papers are in the post.

    His new uniform is on the way too.

    It's a bit more lifelike than the real thing.

    and you have personally witnessed how I interact with citizens of other nations when abroad? Please elaborate! Share your oldfella stories with the class! Did my attitude, manners and behavior meet your exacting standards of representing the U.S? Granted when I was younger I was a little crude & arrogant, but over time I came to appreciate different cultures, or at least humbly tolerate them.

    Given how you interact with your fellow Americans, one can only surmise.

    I'm only going on what you post here, which has nothing to do with how you relate to other cultures. I believe you when you say you respect other cultures. The point (which you missed entirely) is the arrogance of believing that everyone's interests are the same as ours.

    "Most TBI injuries are considered mild, but even mild cases can involve serious long-term effects on areas such as thinking ability, memory, mood, and focus. Other symptoms may include headaches, endocrine, vision, and hearing problems." - :( wow pretty sobering stuff. I'm already suffering from about half of these symptoms without experiencing an actual TBI (that I know of anyway) so I need more brain malfunction like I need a hole in the head!

    So this would be an excellent instance in which you'd consider the fact that your CiC has publicly claimed it's "just a headache" and maybe reexamine your slavish devotion to him. Ya think?

    I'm from Brooklyn. I calls 'em like I sees 'em. Anyone here who's met me will confirm that. I also have very little tolerance for bigots and fools.

    Slavish devotion? More like a realistic appraisal of his abilities and potential for future leadership. I'm hardly devoted to him - I just know he's not the Hitler the left makes him out to be by a long shot.
    I am on record for disagreeing with a couple of his ideas and projects, but the pros of having Trump as HMIC outweigh the cons, no doubt about it.

    But don't just take my word for it - as you'll see in November! :D

    You defend President Bone Spurs on average a dozen times a day in this forum. And you understand what he apparently doesn't give a shit about - that TBI is a serious issue. But you still :hail:.

    "Future leadership"? :wtf: In what century?

    if by "defend" you mean discussing him without comparing him to Satan :diablo: like you and the rest of leftforge do? Yes I probably do that a dozen times a day. By "future leadership" I mean of course the next four years and change. Not that it will effect you - all crying and pissing yourself in the fetal position most likely until 2024.

    yes, you're right! Show me some evidence (that isn't just your biased subjective opinion and peanut gallery talking points) that I'm bigoted and a fool. Yes I "call em as I see em" too but if it doesn't jive with your political leanings then it's wrong - that's your default setting but don't feel like the Lone Ranger in that regard.

    (A) Granted you've damped down your "ain't black people funny?" schtick in the past couple of years, but as for being a fool, reread your posts in this thread. Or let me paraphrase: "So what if Fearless Leader says TBI is 'just a headache'? He still shows he's got the chops to be a 'future leader'."

    (B) I asked you first. Where's your evidence that I'll defend liberals the way you defend Der Drumpfenfuhrer? Take your time.

    First let's clear this up - you can simultaneously be against a person's policy but not be against the person - and vice versa. That said:
    at first glance (without all the details and caveats and facts from unbiased sources at my disposal) I would be against rolling back environmental controls. I'm old enough to remember just how fucked up the Great Lakes and some major rivers were a few decades ago - and to see how much progress we have made. Also air pollution was at a dangerous level in some cities. Thus this shows to me that you can indeed balance economic success with workable environmental controls and management. For the most part we as a nation (and Georgia as a state) are at least are on the right track. Why upset the apple cart? Money comes and goes, but we have to live with nature for the rest of our lives as individuals and as a species.

    I don't have time to review every thread over the past few months or even weeks. So you got me! You never give a pass to the left/liberals even though they obviously deserve it because (like you) their shit doesn't stink and they are always on the right side of history by default.

    BTW the black people are funny schtick? How about all people are funny and if somebody does funny/crazy/stupid/criminal shit and they happen to be black I should walk on eggshells and be afraid to post about it? Fuck that.

    But you just did. :diacanu:

    Either you don't know how the Search function works, or you know you can't prove your :unuts: claim, so you're not even going to try.
