<quoted text>As I have said several times, it is fine with me if you leave. Not sure why you are in denial about that. I just like to point out how silly and ironic I think it is.
I keep pointing to you because you make such ridiculous claims and are such an extremist. You are here most consistently and make many claims.
You typify all that I see wrong with the republican party. You typify all I see that is wrong of the republican mentality. You are the republican poster child. Ironic you flee from America. This typifies the way republicans cannot accept democracy and our constitution.
I am kind of surprised you are so subservient to your wife. Seems to contradict how you approach politics. You are unwilling to make any compromises in politics as is the party line agenda.
Seeing how you are such an ass here, maybe you understand that protesting against your wife would make you lose her quickly, so you just bow down to her wishes. Not exactly what I feel is a healthy relationship, but if that is good for you, then fine.
You cause me no loss of sleep though. Your lack of good rebuttals, prove to me, I am on the correct side.

Do you have proof or is that just your opinion? If I'm not mistaken, the subject was the fact provided that female physicians outnumber males. Do you think there's more female mechanics, welders, construction workers, etc? Does the fact there's more female doctors than male doctors, mean there's equality across the board? Religion, just as you and your opinions, do not guarantee equality, so what's the big deal about religion and equality? You never stated what religion or why.

Silver may not be so disenchanted after all because it looks like Obama is getting ready to give the republikans what they have been asking for, cuts to social programs. All the republikans have to do is name the specific programs they want to cut and then take credit for cutting them.
Obama is also getting ready to give the democrats what they have been asking for and that is tax increases for the wealthy. Another surprise could be the home mortgage tax deduction being eliminated which would raise an additional $800 billion dollars over 10 years. So it looks like everyone is going to get some of what they wanted . who can comlain about that ?

And maybe a "mortgage write down", wonder what that will do to the banking industry?

Forum bully. Passive aggressive to say the very least. I am thinking that Emlu is not a linker so you feel the need to make an innuedo that she doesn't or can't post a link so you do it. Case in point. You snore me to death. Did you have a point to link exactly what she posted. Bully you. I dozed off at the beginning of yours--hers was quite sufficient. damn it--where is that peanut icon.

Mike, you gave us a link for religious stats in Denmark period. So you ASSumed it was equality. Didn't see a link about equality in Denmark vs. US. Did you ever think in that big head(small brain)of yours that women IN DENMARK simply are smarter than men hence more female docs?! Head scratcher ay? Given the pop. of 300 million in US, of course it looks to you like equality. Perception is a little devil isn't she.

I stand corrected. I had Finland on my brain. Please insert Finland where you see Denmark. Factoid #174 to you Emlu. Denmark pop. 5.6 million and Finland pop. 5.4 million and both represent .08 of the worlds population and both ranked the obvious at 111th of world pop. Well one thing I learned today if I read all those stats correctly(got over served by Mike)lol is I will never live in Denmark or visit for that matter based on crime rate and lack of safety. Does anybody want to link crime stats on Finland vs. US?

Mike, this is for you. Hmm .08 rings a bell. Mike, you do know that is the legal limit with alcohol correct. So if you "over serve" on stats, I hope you don't practice this at "your bar". Damn where is that funny icon

Mike why are you consistently so curt with emlu? She is posting links for comparison.What's so bad about that? Mike its just not necessary, all this rudeness.I don't think non-civility is a needed feature in life, or Topix.
She made no comparisons, nor posted links that compare against each other, so I have no idea how to compare what she posted to what.
I point out clearly my beef with her, so I am not sure why you are confused. Posting a link means nothing if you have no point. Maybe you can read minds, but I cannot.
I asked a simple question, "What is your point"? She responded rudely. Maybe you just have double standards.

So you refuse to support your opinion with logic? Hell, you refuse to support your opinion at all.
I have the same beef with you as I have all the republicans here. Give your opinion and make a case for it. That is the entire purpose of this forum. No one seems to want to play be the common rules of debate. And you have the nerve to bitch at me for complaining about it?

Thank you Emlu. Interesting. I stand corrected again. There were 2 things I learned today. I won't be living or visiting in Finland as well. Scary stuff--300 million vs. 5.4 and 5.6 million. You all remember Aruba and Natalie. What's with the Dutch policia?

I "pick" at everything I dispute. Maybe you have no noticed that, and think you are being targeted? Grow some thicker skin if you want to debate with the big boys.
Name one conservative who I do not "pick" at? Hell, if a liberal says something I dispute, I will "pick" at it also. Ask Arnold about my religious debates with him.
I guess you just came here to get pats on the back.

Maybe so, but you sure are not pointing them out very well. I am short with those who do not debate like normal people. Emlu is a perfect example of one of these people. You often do it also. Most conservatives here just refuse to have a full debate. They start whining after the first claim about not wanting to justify the claim. Thus, their is no debate. This is a debate forum, as no conservatives here seem to take note of.
