Wow. You're still just as big of a tool as when you bitch and cry under the name otay.
Is that it? That's the best you've got? LMMFAO! You think I am somebody else. Well, right back at ya, I think you are somebody else. Now what? Wanna move on and discuss the issues or do you want to stay in your childish world?

Really, I couldn't care less what you think because you don't matter to me. Never have and never will. I replied so hopefully you could see yourself as others see you...childish and very stupid. As your Hitlary Clinton would say, "what difference at this point does it matter anyway"? LOL Does whatever name is being used confuse you when you are trying to comprehend a post? Obviously it does. No matter what name a person posts under...the facts in their post remain the same. Stupid ass. LOL

What's happening in your life in your life that makes you upset that you live to fight with people on a website? I suppose your obsession with partisan politics is only part of your emotion problems. You're like an angry little kid with your mile long rants.

The test was from 1912, you dunce! Have you ever ever made a comment that was on topic?!?
I was saying that because if that was an eight grade test in 1912, they done away with it before my time. Still, children got a better education up until the 60's than the present one.
I can certainly see why America prospered in earlier times. Our forefathers were blessed with brains and not afraid to use them for the good of mankind.
Now look at what we have to run the country,a bunch of sex crazy addle brains.
It's only going to get worse with your generation which is a bunch of dumbed down drugged up lazy cockroaches.
Is that staying on topic enough for you?

On the news today saw where under the Obama administration is setting new rules for education. Just in time to dumb down the rest of of American children.

New rules, example... if 3x4 = 12, but you say 3X4 =11 and you explain why you think so, you get it right!
Do any of you liberal idiots ever get outraged at what is being done to your children?
Don't forget, THEIR CHILDREN ARE GOING TO PRIVATE SCHOOLS.
Your children are going to be their children's slaves.

They're just bitter old sods with nothing else to do with their day but bitch about everything. They always have to get in the last word so it's best just to ignore them and hope they find somewhere else to go and complain.
Not to worry. I won't be back. No use wasting my time arguing with utter fools. You'll find out what you are in for anyway. I'd love to see you face when you find out how bad you've been screwed by these Communists in the White House.

It's ironic that sheeple cry about their privacy being invaded, but when given an opportunity to give up all their information voluntarily like FB, they go right for it!!..Then Big Brother is right there to archive it. The Data Center in Utah was meant to hold in excess of Yodabytes (YB) of information. This may not seem like a big issue since most of us aren't up to anything sinister, but as someone with a degree in mathematics, I can tell you that because the collected information is going to be kept INDEFINITELY, the probability that it will one day be compromised, stolen, and published is just about 100%.
I could take information provided by you over time on FB, and use it to predict what you're going to do or where you're going to be at any given moment in the future.
Your future chinese overlords might frown on those ancient posts about freedom, democracy, christianity, or human rights. Or any posts that suggest you're mentally ill or "undesirable" in any way.
you are correct!
I find it more interesting to watch people being divided over ignorant matters while all of this goes on!
did you notice how many people judged your comment negatively? lol

I am interested, this poster had a very valid point that was ignored by all of you "big brains" on topix.
could the educated fold explain the posters perception?

You need a life if you're worry about topix judging! It probably had more to do with you trolls being off topic. Lol
I probably had more to do with what you wanted to convey, and feel very uncomfortable when I point that out.

Sad that your only sense of having an effect on people is trying to argue with anonymous users on a website. Sorry to disappoint whatever world you built up in your mind, but I was only pointing out that political trolls have continuously driven this thread off topic.
why isn't this posters topic relevant?
it was the third comment, but ignored . does this make you uncomfortable?
