You really are a one-trick sock puppet aren't you.

No, the list of posters you refer to is remarkably small. So is their mojo. The only thing that is huge is their list of cowering aliases.

Get it right for once.:)

That's why I had to look twice when I saw what was posted, and sure enough it was a troll....that is how well I understand how you behave here as oposed to me and a lot of the others....and the last thing we need is for us to have no standards to seek to achieve...why it would be like Sairla changing to the other side and that would be sacrilege...you keep up the good work and ignore those dumb trolls, we know you are a decent sort, Lamington, please?:)
You guys have STANDARDS?

Ha! Ha! Ha!

I was hoping Sarah would bore herself to death.

Decent sort? Sort of decent?

I am on record elsewhere in Topix as explaining at length why I believe that we have a tinge of racial prejudice in each of us. Well-intentioned individuals prefer to keep that hidden, perhaps even from themselves.
I won't labor all the nuances again in this thread.
My objection to "Heather from LI" putting the "N-word" into my mouth is twofold. Doing so misrepresents both my values and my observable track record. It could also invite a rush to judgment on where my values reside in a general scale of opinion.
I have done nothing to justify that.
If anyone feels duty-bound to fault me I'm sure they will find valid reasons without need to invent new ones.:)
When someone admits to having a TINGE of racial prejudice..........It's probably more than a TINGE.

Thanks Teaman. I do trust the intelligence of decent posters here. It's more a matter of placing a correction on record else the only tangible record would be the untruth.:)

It's an assumption. I don't see a male using the name Heather, but I could be wrong.:-)

No he wouldn't care for anyone but himself as most of the gun owners barely took a breath over Sandy Hook, most of the twats were out stocking up big time like it was all about them and how they could be losing their guns and using ways to turn this tragedy to their advantage by critising the government of conspiracy. The truth is they were never in danger of losing their guns they went out and stocked up as support for gun owners everywhere, to send a clear message to the government.
The message was we don't care what happened at Sandy Hook or any of the other massacre's none of us committed that crime and we will not dwell on the fact that the person that did or face that he was a law abider and he had too easy access to guns because (IT WASN'T US) he was sick a one off, it only happened because he was on medication, like it is even possible that any of those morons can give iron clad reassurance that the rest of them are sane?......The NRA brainwashed idiots didn't spend a moment in time to focus on the those that died as a result of how easy it is to get a gun and murder en masse in the good ole' USA, they find excuse after excuse and deny in the overwhelming face of evidence ....You are expecting humanity to come from souless evil people that have no heart...these law abiding gun owners scream that from the rooftops till they go posta,l and then they fall back and build a wall to defend their stupidity...against the mounting inocent boddies. They are truly mentally ill...and they use the second ammendment like a sheild against all those beautiful inocent people around them....

First you have to decide what present the guy himself represents to you. Then select a present that is in harmony with that first present.

What do you value in your guy? His embrace? His protectiveness? His willingness to listen? Is he a wiz in the kitchen? His attitude around kids? His effectiveness as a handyman? His sense of Humour? His energy at sport or as a gardener? His prowess in bed? The list goes on.

What positive quality about him comes to your mind first? Compliment him on that quality by targeting it with the gift you select.:)

You had a lot invested and got burned yourself didn't you. You didn't learn though. It was only a matter of time before you tried it again and with even less success. Why are you still here ... slow day at the Tuna Farm? Never mind. Keep talking. This is getting more interesting.

When all else fails grope for a random copy-paste. The only thing I derive from the irrelevance of your post is that you have some hateful little Burr under your saddle. But it's too off-topic and incoherent for me to bother with at this hour. So you've wasted yet another post.
