Hi to all the regular posters.. What happened to all the intelligent posts I used to read on this thread? I remember a crazy poster who called herself "Anomymous" did she come back with her friends? Where's my girls Roberta and Lisz? And no I'm not gay!!

My bitterness, huh.

They still exist. You just happened by when a handful of straight men were circling each other deciding who had the best bark.

You got played, using a cheap tactic that you yourself have used right here in the thread.


Nfl idiot is right about your politically correct arse, he's played you all day and had you on the hook, DON'T TAKE YOUR FRUSTRATIONS OUT ON ME!

Nfl idiot isn't offended by what I said nor was I at him, it's the rest of you politically correct stuffed shirts, he knows what game he was playing and so did I, guy's do it to each other all the time.

Maybe your experiences are that of a loner and can't understand where I'm coming from.

Somebody send me a pm when we're back to discussing serious issues--like Sarah Palin and Ted Cruz.

lol- Not really. The behavior is a primal instinct particularly prevalant in the homosapien male species since it's origin. Modern etiquette or learned artificial behavior can interrupt that instinct in order to have peace and keep blood flow to a minimum but unless instinct can be bred out of a species, it will always dominate. Modern man resorts to that instinct when they have to and sometimes they resort to it simply because they feel like it; which is what you men just did for the last 24+-hours.

I've never seen any evidence of gay Cro Magnon but I think it's safe to say the chips would have been stacked against him and he wouldn't have fared well durng the Paleolithic Era.'Coming out' of the closet (or cave) was probably not a good option back then.

Anyway, thanks to all of you for the science demonstration!

Problem with Afghanistan is that the people are tired of foreigners
on their soil whether it's to help or to harm. So I'm for pulling all combat troops from BOTH Afghan & Iraq, leaving only police & military trainers. And if either country objects to trainers, the US flies out immediately.

I don't disagree with what Steinbeck said in the abstract, but the abstract doesn't always intersect with the real world.

There was no failure on the part of Belgium's thinking that caused the Germans to invade in 1914. There was no failure on the part of Poland's thinking that caused the Germans to invade in 1939.

The examples are admittedly simplistic, but the fact remains that "man's failure as a thinking animal" isn't always on both sides equally.

Moderate America has been fractured for quite some time. Stands to reason that is why "it's" party is as well. Every waking day the things you hold close to your heart are being eroded by "immoderate" America.

People fight when they have no work.

LOL! Some of US Military will be staying put to protect the stolen bloody Oil infrastructureS, after all this hard work our US will not FULLY withdraw from the Mid East...unless we all present with alternatives. Our corrupted US media not gonna tell U everything but instead present lies BY telling the public full withdraw of whole US troop is on the way . BUTt, INSTEAD leave enough US troops behind so won't lose control of lands and resources stolen from other nations, and put a dictatorial US puppet in place to control its police force... that is beholden to greedy US interests. As most of you Simpleton War mongering grunters still ignorant and believe in corrupted US media/govt is telling the truth this time... Ignorant is bliss for you Simpleton war mongers supporters. You can fool many most of time but not few, fool to many people ; they start questioning and Us is becoming a Police State because many no longer believe what our corrupted in Power is saying... Bqahhahaahaaa

Why so much Illegal Immigrant come to US and hows is related to above somewaht? Let work you little grunting homoErectus fecal brain matter,! BWhahahahahaaa have some more hiney melons!

People fight when they want more than there share and people fight back when their share is being threatened. People fight for an endless number of reasons.
