I have no need to answer the question unless it applies to the conversation, and just asking me something personal goes beyond the conversation especially since it came out of the blue.....This is you.....Blah, blah, blah guns, death, actors, American males are suposedly tough and then........ oh and by the way are you married....WTF.
Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, etc. Are You Married? Why Are You Afraid To Answer The Question? You've been married more than once.

I see your 'Diggers' shot two innocent boys. How do your "diggers' compare to the Navy Seals? First, they should change their name ASAP. Digger the Dog. Remember him?

Stop hiding and answer the question about being married. Are you a lesbian? That could be it! That's no reason to be embarrassed. Do you have a special someone (girl)? Aww. Cute. You two get along?

Isn't that against the law?

Why do you feel the need to do pot?

Saw an interesting show about marijuana the other night. There is a place in California called the golden triangle (?) were everyone and their mother grows it. The growers actually drive it down to southern Calif and risk being pulled over with it and/or selling it to a cop. Is it worth it? No.

As a kid I heard many overseas radio broadcasts most of which I vividly remember straining to understand over shrill jamming broadcasts by some foreign power or other with a vested interest in drowning out broadcasts to suppress spread on information it disapproved of.
Does else anyone get the impression that our freedom of speech in this thread is under the printed equivalent of similar shrill jamming attack by Spammers with a suppressive agenda?

Ahomaniac is probably sleeping off another crazy night of drunkeness and debauchery.

Sleep tight Ahomaniac. Don't let the bed bugs bite! I hope they get you good.

I bet she dreaming of living in America. Poor Ahomaniac, it will never happen. You are stuck in Perth.

Good night.

Viewed in context of observations exchanged between Teaman & me & Ahomana ... & massive Spamming imposed in the past 12 hours or so, no.

Nothing stopping you from reading back for yourself & joining the dots. Or does shallowness remain your comfort-zone?

Does it matter if it is over 300 million or 400 million, the point I am making is that the officers that have to attend a call out should take their time getting there because the gun owners reckon they are not needed, and the cops would be committing suicide knowing every idiot in America has a gun, is that not so?
When seconds count, the cops are only minutes away. Even they will tell you that on emergency calls they will get there in time to do the paper work and call for clean up. So you aren't that far off...you're just ignorant (as normal) on the dedication of police officers.

If you buy a baseball bat to hurt someone, then it should be banned.

How could you be shot? If you had your way, all guns would be banned. Oh that's right....criminals don't follow the law, including those banning guns. My bad.

This anti-gun attitude and zero tolerance BS has now turned into bullying by school staff and tolerance of student bullying when it suits their agenda. I hope more people will stand up against this BS and get in the face of the teachers...the principle...and the school board that condones this type of action.

If you're not willing to stand up for your own kids...who will you stand up for...?
