I give a schit. Anyone who can survive life past 75 has my congratulations. I'm still remembering the days where American society honored their elderly and when the family was the best social safety net. No longer. Seems that too many folks can't even see to the up bringing of their own kids anymore. "Let the government do it" they say.

My own Dad, who passed away in June at the age of 85, used to tell us, "when the American family unit craps out, then American society itself will crap out. The family is the back bone of society."

I agree, therefore, I give a schit.

Nice post Fred, and good to see that you're still hanging around.

I am quite certain that you are not the "Maximus Vacavillius" that used to post here. Although many will disagree with me, he had too much class to be a troll.

I strongly suggest you find a hobby outside of Internet Web based forums in which you can direct your intellectual interests and frustrations at.

All the best,

That young lad calling himself "Max" has a long way to go to represent the name. Keen eye so late in the afternoon Fred.

You're correct Fred. Although the original "Max" does still post the childish 8th grade garbage I'm pretty sure is not him.

I have no choice, a writer must present at the level in which his audience can comprehend the message...Bob.

Ha, you are no writer. Does that include Christmas Tree topper stories and trolling the women relentlessly? Jerk.

So what.

When the public sees that Christmas Tree on Main Street beginning next week, and looks on top of it, who do you think everyone sees? How is that "angel" attached to that big beautiful tree?

I'll have to ask some one Public Works, they'd know.

How 'bout you just sign in so we know for sure when it's you and maybe the 12 year olds will simply go away.

Oh wait, that still doesn't work since you do have a history of posting under multiple names anyway.

Well said, Fred. What your father said is absolutely right, and it's what I've been grousing about after undergoing a study in multiculturalism. We Americans are all so arrogantly proud of ourselves and have contempt for the filthy Third World communities who actually care for their aged. And then there are the Chinese, whose elderly remain the heads of households until death, and they even manage to have a healthy economy to boot!

I see. So writers of childrens books should just write and never mind who is reading the book.

I can tell you don't have a GED, your naive reasoning is glaring.

I stand by my assertion that good writing is at the level of the audience. For you it would be a very challenging task for a writer to find simple words and sentences that would fit your ability to comprehend.

Detailing my credentials for you here wouldn't mean anything because regardless of my accomplishments, many that the are, you'd just jealously sneer at them making up assassin insults to stroke your ego.

You may have the last word, and I'd bet a dollar you will use "dumbass" and/or "dummy." It's just your style; the low road fits you.
