I'm usually reluctant to reveal it, because I've been burned several times.
One time I was being take to lunch by the head of a charity because I was to be named the new #2 and I was to "get onboard". She ofhand said "You're okay working Friday night, right, you're not Jewish." I said no, athist. And ice covered the room and we had to leave early because she "had something scheduled". And I was told the next day someone else would be #2.

Plz don't take any notice of the troll poster calling themselves "__Chartreuse__" {notice the double __ underscore as opposed to my single _ underscore} They probably don't mean a word they've typed here or elsewhere. They've only set up their account in imitaiton of mine {even copied the profile page} and are making posts taking the p outta me.

I'm sorry about your experience - it's bad news; although given the rabid levels of religiosity in the USA, it's not particularly surprising.

The only idiot here is the one harping on about a non-existent god and getting verbally beat down day in and day out about it.

You suffer from some kind of failure fetish.

They're shocked that you're willing to give yourself without the looming reward from an non-existent god - you're more charitable than the rest of them put together, good for you.

Yeah ... don't ever do that ... out there. Here, it's okay, you are among friends. Plenty of Godbot's around, many quite hateful, but they are rendered harmless by distance. Their vitriol is all virtual. There's actually great sport in poking at them through the bars of their self-imposed mental prison. Use a long stick ... they are extremely dangerous and would like to see us all dead.

Wow. I like double underscore Chartreuse better than single underscore Chartreuse already. I looked at your profile ... I can certainly understand why someone would want to emulate it ... NOT!!!

I remember it very well.
I was in the military in 1973 and I don't remember that.

Oh Yeah.....Its A Game Changer, And Worth The 18 K Price Tag.
I Said Google It Because Most Are Unwilling To Open A Link With Good Reason.

If Your Over A Certain Age, You Know That Respect Is Earned, Not Given Freely. With That Said, This Social Media Outlet Is The Last Place One Would Go To Get Respect, Most People On These Forums, You Or I Would Never Talk To In Person, In Fact, We May Go Out Of Our Way To Avoid Them....LOL

I Often Wonder Why Anyone Would Post Pictures And Minute By Minute Updates Of Their Lives On Facebbok.....Just Goes To Show How Indoctrination And Peer Presure, Along With Media, Can Shape A Society.
