Relax! Jeez.
What I learned from this is never argue with a flaming narcissist. I thought it would be fun. It's not, it's exhausting and crazy! You and your new found troll friend have been arguing semantics for 2 days and doing it poorly.
But of course you're just a hopeless narcissist. That's your motivation. The troll's is trying to feel big, similar to yours but not quite as insane.
The House voted on several charges against Clinton. He was impeached on two of them. The end.
Now go find someone else you and your troll buddy can nitpick to near death and then declare yourself winner. There is no prize here for sane people. Maybe you'll believe you've won something. You didn't. Have Misery! I'll have fun.
Changing your tune, eh? Yes, the House approved two articles of impeachment. Clinton was acquitted of both.

Yes. I've seen his YouTube videos. They are under "Go to Mona's Church" on YouTube. A real quacked out ugly dude with Kentucky accent. Careful! "Content may be offensive" YouTube warns before you can open it. And it is! Hell just looking at him is offensive. Then he starts talking and it gets even worse!

Funny!

My only mistake was I shouldn't have used the word "guilty". The House voted there was enough evidence of guilt to impeach him. So what? It didn't make anything else I said wrong. Was it worth it to you? Do you feel a great surge of narcissist power from 2 days of harping on it? Nope you don't. There is no prize. Nothing at all. Go nitpick someone else. Have misery!

P.S. When you f*** up, I'll be there. Watch every word miss thing!

No, look up the term "red herring".
And then notice I haven't stated a position on polygamy, it's just not an equal rights issue, and thus a red herring.

Thank you for the admission, though tacit, that you cannot reason that one out, without conceding my point. And subsequently admitting that "equal rights" isn't your game, it is selective admission to society. "Some are more equal than others"....and all that...else you'd simply admit the truth of my statement.
Not at all stupid, if a man could marry more than one woman, but a woman couldn't marry more than one man, we'd have an equal rights issue. But that's not the case. Nobody can marry more than one person. Should they be able to? Start a thread on that topic, OK?

Nope, you hear nothing except the emptiness of narcissistic "victory" from nitpicking semantics for 2 days.

Someone said "found him guilty" instead of "found evidence of guilt" and you caught the mistake! What a great victory! Are you going to celebrate tonight or stick around nitpicking someone else's posts to boring death?

Of course you have proved nothing, everything I said about Clinton's impeachment is true. Semantics, your only hope to win an argument. And that's not winning the argument at all.

Have misery!

You've made racist comments against me. I'm not supposed to point that out?

So no Rose, with the way you act, don't expect me or anyone else to take you seriously or attempt an intelligent conversation with you.
Again, you are just a hypocritical prick. You just make personal attacks against me. Anybody looking at your posts can see that.
Why bother to lie?

You have to actually make an argument for someone to counter it Rose, and screaming- Bigot, Racist, and homophobe is not an argument.
Making racist comments against me, then acting innocent is not an argument.

It's hard to believe you actually believe equal rights applies only to sex.

So you don't think different races should have equal rights? Different religions? Different incomes? etc.

What a dope.

Don't forget, you were also wrong to say (and keep bringing up) that Mona had ever said that Clinton was not impeached.

Go here to see some cry babbies located in Republican country, Glendora, California.

This Republican controlled city has brought city services to it's knees, because the city manager and city council can't see the forest from the tree.

Meaning they are ignorant and there waiting with hands held out for the Feds or the State to save them from their own financial stupity.

What can I say? Some people just go through life with blinders on.
A lot of this can be attributed to our educational system and in all honesty the internet and TV.
Now I am not trying to sound like some fuddy duddy from the 50's, but follow the logic for a second.
Our educational system no longer teaches critical thinking skills, everything is spoon fed to you, simply regurgitate without question and you will pass the test.
This idea that we don't need critical thinking is further confirmed through the internet and TV. With the internet we think we can simply google and find the answers, since we are taught to simply read and regurgitate we no longer check sources or question what we read so long as it confirms what we are trying to prove. Television, with its 24 hour "news" cycle, and lack of investigative reporting further solidifies that we no longer require critical thinking. They will tell us what is important and will draw up the conclusion's and result's for us. Again no need to think.
This mentality is also what is leading us to look to government for the solution to all our problems, and it isn't going to be pretty once we "get our wish."
I attended public schools (I even put up protest when my parents wanted to move me to a private school). Some of us learned, some of us didn't. The school really can't be blamed for that, parenting, and other at home influences were, IMHO, to blame. The mess that we currently see with our schools is multifaceted and cannot be blamed on the left or the right. Blame falls across the board. All the teaching methods are different as kids are taught to pass tests rather than taught to learn things in the fashion you state. Memorize some facts, vomit them out on paper, move on to the next act. My receptionist's oldest daughter graduated high school with reasonably decent marks. Upon entering college she floundered with some very basic maths and required tutoring to get through it. Now she's doing fairly well since actually learning some things. NCLB, what a waste.

The school system may be in shambles, but our parents aren't doing much better, especially with regard to their kid's educations. I have several clients that are teachers, retired and active, and a sister that is a retired teacher. Without fail all of them point to a difference in the dynamics between parents, teachers, the school board, principals, and kids. When I was a kid (you too probably) and I got into trouble in school, there was going to be a coalition of opposition for me. It included my parents, my teacher, and my principal (and the rest of the staff at the school depending upon the nature of the infraction). Now, I as the kid, have at my side, my parents (their little darling would never do that), and possibly a lawyer, while the teacher is hung out to dry.

Throwing more money at it won't fix it. Having committee meetings to discuss new programs won't fix it. Privatization of public schools won't fix it. Vouchers for private schools won't fix it. Turning the dynamic around so kids can experience immediate consequences for being a fuck up instead of being waved on through the system (god forbid little Johnny know the sting of a failing grade AND, oh noes, have to repeat a grade) where they find themselves total failures because they haven't learned a damn thing.
