As we used to say back when I was still in Nappies, "You're already made and a darned poor job of it.

Now, intelligent one, riddle me this. What is the difference between "Bear Arms" and "Bare Arms"? When will you ever get that right?

Also the definition of sarcasm is "Sarcasm is a sharp, bitter remark or expression often used to ridicule, mock, taunt and undermine.". You're an expert at that when answering any question put to you. Makes you proud, doesn't it?

Probably hunting bear, or seeking salmon.

But since Fukashima, I wouldn't touch the latter with a 9000 foot pole!

You got your history seriously bungled old chap; The Communist Party of the Soviet Union did not emerge until the end of the Bolsheviks and the bloody civil war in 1922. The Bolsheviks orchestrated the October Revolution which overthrew the Provisional Government, thus transferring all governing power to the workers' councils (Russian: soviets). Immediately thereafter, the Bolsheviks founded the Russian Socialist Federative Soviet Republic - the world's first constitutionally socialist state. After a bloody civil war, at the end of 1922 the Bolsheviks emerged victorious and unified territories of the former Russian Empire into the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR). I seriously doubt that your man Lincoln had anything to do with it :-)
YOU are so full of shit, that you stink!

The 'Bolshevik revolution' was a calculated maneuver made by the Bank of England, under the Rothschilds. It was intended to create a reason for war in the European theater in order that the Rothschilds would make lots of money as a result of the military adventurism which resulted.

In fact, the 'revolution' was fully funded by the the Rothschild family, and a few other millionaires, such as Armand Hammer.

Further yet, it was the Rothschild-funded RIAA (Royal Institute for International Affairs) which =GAVE= Karl Marx his 'Communist Manifesto.' And that silly bastard didn't wouldn't have known the time of day had it not been Engels, who was daily 'servicing' Marx's wife.

Well I don't understand, if you wished to debate that point why didn't you just respond to my original post at the time, why?...it makes no sense...you are doing what most men blame women for, raking up things long forgotten and expecting me to know where you are coming from...keep it up to date...I do hate going back over conversations I had, and not conversations I am having....My point of view is the same today as it was then, so do try and stay in the now...would be appreciated and it keeps the world moving forward which is the direction I am heading, eh Pacha?

Neither do you possess the statistical data, nor are you possessing of the anecdotal information to support your contentions.
Rather, all of which you possess are nothing more than your opinions, none of which are other than ~feelings~.
You could simply have said "feelings aren't facts". A bit long winded there Scootty eh?.

Unlike yourself, I patiently take the time to explain matters, rather than to merely blurt a bullshit opinion.

BTW, how does that bull's arse taste?

Why? because I deal with my opinion on a forum dedicated to opinions? Unlike you I am too busy dealing with you morons to spend days coping and pasting everything I find to give everyone the shits simply because I don't have the courage of my convictions...That is you I am referring to there Pacha! And No I didn't think you would understand that unless it was spelt(English) out for you...which I just did!
