well actually it's not exactly as tho you were hiding behind two screen names. It was easily to see it was you. I thought maybe you might use a shorter vesion of it on another board.
thanks...one screen name fine by me. guess i should 'register' my screen name and maybe it wouldn't let me post unless i had logged in as misticosombrero.

and yes, my 'style' of input never changes...at least rarely it does....occassionally i'll use proper caps, etc., but most often it's just run-on sentences....poor style, i must admit.

I'm not registering mine. Not on here. I do and will everywhere else, but not on here it causes just a little much too much attacking.

I'm not thin skinned, but there's no need for some of this. It's rather extreme and ends up making no sense on most of the topics.

most of career spent in executive, white collar positions, but started at the bottom in a factory. career recruiter for largest recruiting/placement firms in the nation. if applying for a white-collar position whereby face-to-face customer interaction is predominant, then visible ink will almost always eliminate a candidate from consideration. just a fact of life. not saying it's right, but that's what happens.
and yes, i use a dictionary, thesarus, and a synonym/antonym dictionary....learning never stops no matter one's age.
as for being an authority on all things?...or arrogant?....not really...BUT, wisdom comes with age, experience (sometimes being wrong, sometimes being right) and being on this earth a long, long time.
i do agree with you that many people lean to bigotry and being hypocritical behind closed doors...it's a human condition; takes work, being humbled, and a certain self-discipline and self-respect not to be....i'm as guilty as anyone from time-to-time.
and i think you'll agree it's not exclusive to small communities or the south.....just as prevelant in big cities, North, West, East and South. Try living abroad...same there....as i said...it's a HUMAN condition.
I disagree that it is a human condition. It is simply a human choice. Everyone has the ability to expand their mind, their way of thinking. Some decide not to. It is no condition. Ignorance and bigotry are a choice. Nothing displeases more than for people to attempt to justify ignorance and ridiculous unjustified intolerance.

Also, would you consider living in Muslim countries for three years living abroad? I would. And having done so, I have never encountered any issues in having tattoos. As a matter of fact, I served as a liaison to senior government officials in Kuwait. It only takes one conversation to demonstrate that you are proficient in your work and your ability to communicate to change the perceptions of anyone with half of a brain. That isn't saying much for those who can't get past it. If an extremely pious Muslim can overlook the fact that I have ink on my arm, why can't Americans?

I also disagree that bigotry is just as prevelant in big cities. Because most people in larger cities are typically exposed to a larger variety of people, cultures and things of the like, they tend to be a little more accepting.

And behind closed doors? What rock are you living under?

...then we agree to disagree. bigotry and intolerance have been a part of the human race since the beginning of mankind; and conversations have been held about it since then; hasn't seemed to change anyone's mind, yet.

sure i've considered living abroad; but not where the religion calls for intolerance and to kll those who don't believe the same way...regardless of their position on body art.

as for intolerance? your tone seems clearly intolerant.

true story; handsome 27 year old 'shopper' at an upscale mall and in a high-end (expensive) retail store; manager approaches the 'shopper' for 'live' modeling opportunity to promote the store and it's clothing line...@$140.00 per day....just wear the brand of clothing outside the store entrance, entreat cusotmers, etc.'shopper' has visible ink on chest...dismissed from consideration SPECIFICALLY because of it. worse, for white-collar jobs, visible tattoos and visible ink are the bane of acceptance for the young in our society; it's an indication of poor judgement and flawed decision-making. those are the words of the professional recruting world and employers at large.

now, don't shoot the messenger...go research it yourself.
