    Only if you're limiting it to a few presidents during the 20th Century. Which, you'll notice, I didn't. Wait, who am I kidding? You're incapable of noticing anything which doesn't fit inside your very narrow world view.

    I didn't think I could go much beyond the 20th century as far less is known about many of the earlier presidents personal lives. I'm pretty confident that I could add McKinley, Garfield, Andrew Johnson, Lincoln, Jackson, Washington, and John Adams to the "no mistresses" pile. Combined with the 20th century list of "no mistresses" that adds up to 19 presidents which is close to half.

    That thoroughly refutes your claim of "nearly every American president had a mistress".

    :wtf:

    No.
    No, you complete peanut.
    Absolutely no one says that.

    My brother married my sister-in-law because she got pregnant and they barely even knew each other. They were both practically babies themselves. He now has a a daughter outside of that marriage because he thought he could do better. That kid's gonna figure out when her other two siblings get to live with Daddy year round. the older two kids are gonna figure out where the baby came from. The oldest kid is smart as a whip and will be able to figure out the wedding date is only a month before his birth and think that it's his fault my brother is miserable as fuck for his own decision to play hero.

    I love all three of those kids, but I wish I could spare them that pain they will all inevitably face by that decision.

    Key words being "didn't think" which pretty much sums up everything about you.

    Okay, I'll bite: why?
    AKA "human garbage." Who do you think was the father of his slaves' kids? You know, the light-skinned ones?
    Wanna know why the gay Republicans call themselves "The Log Cabin Republicans"? It's because they think that Honest Abe was a fudgepacker. Maybe he was, maybe he wasn't but with him being our first martyred President there's no way you're going to get an accurate story about him on the subject.
    Another slave owner, who also might have been fucking his slaves, as so many slave owners tended to do.
    A slave owner. This raises a bit of a conundrum. It was pretty common for slave owners to screw their slaves. It kind of seems unlikely that Washington would have been any different. Of course, there is the fact that he and Martha never had any kids, which leads to the speculation that ol' George was sterile. (Something about him having bad teeth and not producing any kids via Martha points to a possible genetic condition that made him sterile.) Yet there are those who claim they're his descendants, but without DNA testing, we can't know for sure.
    Well, except for all that time in France and England. I mean, we know that the reason that folks like Jefferson were able to hang out in France was due to the various wealthy widows who were more than happy to financially support them. Some say that Benjamin Franklin is known as "the father of France" is due to the fact that he boinked so many women while he was there that he had a whole bunch of kids. True or not, he certainly did have kids out of wedlock.
    Save for the fact that you don't know what the fuck you're talking about.

    Keep dreaming.

    ^You have no evidence that slaveowners routinely had sex with their slaves. We don't even know for sure that Jefferson did. The DNA evidence could just as easily point to Thomas Jefferson's brother.

    Don't argue history with someone who actually works in it for a living "Tuckerfan".

    Sally Hemmings was described as being the spitting image of Jefferson's wife. Because, you know, her father had screwed his slaves. Jefferson was more than happy to give Sally her own special room in Monticello. And Jefferson was said to dote over her children like no other. Almost like they were his own.
    Says the business major who's been fired from most, if not all, of his teaching jobs related to history. I've got news for you, "coach," I know what my qualifications are, and unlike you, I don't claim to be an expert on anything. And unlike you, I don't have an entire thread dedicated to my assgasketery. If I did, I would either leave the board wherein such a thing was started, or I'd learn to not be such a giant douche. That you've failed to do either speaks volumes about you, and not in a good way.

    This is true.

    If the admins were really up to snuff you would’ve been booted years ago.

    Which again, leads to the question of why you stay here. I mean, unless you like the abuse, of course. But if people routinely compared me to human garbage, I'd leave the area. You, however, seem to love the abuse. Why is that?

    The half-assed moderation that allowed you the use of your shitty ass diary during your ban, a privilege no other posters have ever been granted before. Fuck them for their generosity, then. :shrug: :brood:

    El Chup is probably rolling in his grave, pissed that he cant tell the staff about how right he was. :jayzus:

    I don't love the abuse. I'll admit that it bothers me but IIRC I've listed the reasons I've stayed.

    1) No other board offers the opportunity to post about such a range of topics in a single place.
    2) Politically, while you might find it hard to believe Wordforge is pretty moderate. Sure politicalforum has more straight up political and policy stuff, but you're just as likely to run into conspiracy mongers and Russianbots over there. Tererun can probably attest to this. Not to mention technically you can't call other members names or even call them liars at politicalforum without moderators (if someone reports you that is) raising a stink.
    3) Force of habit. I came here from the TrekBBS about what 14 or 15 years ago. Inertia is a powerful thing. One gets used to going to a certain place, posting about certain topics. While I don't agree with the other members here about many things, at least they are predictable in their responses. And I like routine and predictability.

    4) I don't think I will ever find a board where everyone agrees with me most of the time. And I doubt even starting my own board would have the results I'm hoping for.

    Does that explain anything?

    And yet, you were so desperate to be able to post here that you groveled for permission to post in the Blue Room. I'm not sure which is more pathetic, the fact that you begged to post or that the other folks on staff let you. If I had my druthers, you wouldn't have been able to post here until your ban was lifted.

    I didn't beg. I simply pointed out to @shootER that I had been allowed to post in the Blue Room (Diary thread) when I was banned previously.

    I thought you were a science teacher working as a wildlife cop? You have to figure out which occupation you have. Oh, and congrats on your new mail order history bachelors. You do realize that chasing kids down the street trying to tell them about how great the old days were does not make you a history teacher, right?

    I predicted you would be such an ungrateful asshole that you would shit on the mods after they broke their own rules to let you post in your diary thread and write your stories. Someone suggested they just copy your diary and email it to you, and that would have been more than you deserved. Thank you for making me right about you not being worth special treatment.

    Sorry to the mods, but this is what you get with a spoiled asshat. Next time he fucks up remember this and the good times we had without him for three months and flush him. Do it in memory of chup.

    Dayton is the reason I am really glad there is no Jesus. Could you imagine the pain he would cause someone like that?

    If you ever find a board where lots of people agree with you please tell me about it. I would be an honor to die for cleansing the gene pool of such pollution. One of you is fine, but a bunch of you would be worse than Floriduh.

    Point of order: he wrote his Workshop stories offline and copy/pasted them once his ban was lifted.

    And don’t worry. Dayton’s is on his ninth life/last strike/whatever you want to call it.

    Next ban=last ban. :yes:

    I am certified to teach all four core Middle School (4-8) subjects. Math, Language Arts (English), Science, and Social Studies (History). I've taught classes in all these at one time or the other. I'm also certified to teach Secondary Social Studies (7-12) which has been my great preference during my more than decade as an educator. I'm also of course have a coaching certification (k-12). Which means I'm allowed to coach any sport offered in any school in the state. But not certified to teach a P.E. (physical education or gym class). Though I have taught a PE class a couple of times as no one at the state education Dept. gives a damn about it one way or the other.

    I never took an education course in college aside from my 3 hour online course in Arkansas History which was required for me to get my overall teaching license in 2004. I obtained my certifications through Praxis II testing and completing hours at educational workshops (about 100 give or take).

    You really think I would or could chase anybody??

    Pretty sure TR didn't have any mistresses considering he was such a wussy when it came to getting married again after his first wife died.
