Sometimes......luckily, I live in a very low crime area despite there having been maybe a half dozen incidents in my neighborhood (which is a "village" comprised of 450 homes) over the past 17 years.

So when you're home during the day or early evening you keep your gun loaded and ready to shoot and with you at all times?

Yup, as I said, it depends on location, Some of America is among the most educated in the world, in many cases the world leader, with more top rated universities than any other country. However like just about everything there are some that hold it back and by jeesus christ do they hold it back. You are in the wealthiest country in the world, you should be #1 yet you still have an extremely high rate of poverty and educational subnormality to compete with third world banana republics.

You are quite lucky living where you do, education tends to be good in California, pity you don’t avail yourself of its facilities

Yep. Just like you've known (or at least known OF) plenty of whites who are piece of sh*t criminals but just as you've known plenty who are smart, productive members of society.

Yup, I know, sad isn’t it. I tend to ignore her unless she references me directly
Nano no mates has no idea of much and her knowledge of geography is among the copious list of the much she does not know. Major problem is that the Atlantic puddle is outside the US borders and so meaningless geography to her.
She (I say she, could be an it) and I go back a long time, we argued about something, can’t remember what, probably religion or evolution, and she got all wound up and shouty because she could not convert me to her dribbling monronosity. She has been sniping ever since and never has anything to add to any discussion. Her claim that we are one and the same is simply an extension of that rant. I apologise for getting you involved.
There are a couple of similarities between our writing but not enough to confuse anyone. We both disagree with her on just about everything and we both type in paragraphs, hmm, no, not conclusive but hey she believes the babble is word for word truth so she’ll believe just about everything she sets her mind to.
I see her as an empty space between a pair of ears and a waist of good breathing air.
I am not saying this to insult or to be offensive in any way at all, but right in this post of yours, there is proof that you and I are not one and the same person.

You misused the word "waist" in your last sentence- what you meant was "waste" and as I AM a word wizard and told that by MANY- and as I am a stickler for proper grammar, spelling, punctuation and word usage, I would not have typed "waist" when what I meant was "waste".

IF I did, I would have noticed it right after posting and would have corrected it.

I am NOT at all criticizing you for that error; just pointing out how that demonstrates that you and I are not one and the same.

Also, as you know I use CAPS quite often for emphasis whereas you do not.

But Nano is a basket case.

And please- no apology at all needed, and please accept MY apology if I unintentionally offended you by pointing out you typing "waist" instead of "waste"; again, my intention was to cite that as proof that you and I are NOT one and the same.

Next- I would love to see data that proves you saying blacks are more promiscuous.
As far as being more "prone" to violence, I think it's safe to say that as a racial group, there is more poverty among blacks than any other group.
What does poverty lead to, Pat? Crime. That IS a fact.
I am not at all saying that poverty justifies criminal behavior, but poverty is at the root of the majority of criminal behavior.
And just why IS there more poverty among blacks than any other racial group?
I'm pretty sure you will claim it's because they are intellectually inferior, but that is what a racist WOULD claim despite that not being the case at all.
STAY a proud racist, Pat- I don't know what's in it for you or what you get out of it, but apparently, it does much to give you a warm and fuzzy feeling.

Me? I'll stick with my "one planet, one people" philosophy.
Explain just how the legacy of slavery corrupts a black teen in Chicago in 2013 that allows him to carry a gun and mug people.

Explain the dramatic difference in juvenile delinquency rates between blacks and whites.

Your desire to blame whit people for black pathology is racist and without any evidence what so ever for black crime and violence rates are consistent or even worse in majority black nations. Majority black nations are the most corrupt crime ridden nations in the world.

"Next- I would love to see data that proves you saying blacks are more promiscuous."

In 2011 blacks had 7.5 times the reported chlamydia rates of whites.

In 2011 blacks had 17 times the reported gonorrhea rates of whites.

In 2011 blacks had 6.7 times the syphilis rates of whites.

"I think it's safe to say that as a racial group, there is more poverty among blacks than any other group.

It is also a fact that there are far more poverty level whites in America due to population numbers differences and this poor white population does not exhibit the same violent tendencies that blacks do.

OCB, you have no facts, you have liberal propaganda and excuse making nothing more. If you want to deny the basic principles of natural selection that is your problem not mine.

You're not at all concerned about ANY kind of future your kids or potential grand kids will have.

What do you ACTIVELY do to protect and care for the environment?

Certainly NOTHING concerning your driving- you have stated here that you LOVE gas-guzzling trucks!

You think that's a good thing in terms of the future?

And I KNOW you don't give a rat's Aunt Fanny about ANYTHING environmental- you're one of those that makes fun of "green people" and of "going green". You're one of those people who thinks man made global warming is nothing more than a stupid myth.

Need I go on to demonstrate that how when all is said and done it is YOU who hates children due to your severe self-inflicted case of myopia?

And you love your OWN kids so much that you allow them to keep a loaded gun in their room.

You hit the nail on the head with that emotional remark OCB. The difference between us is that I side with the evidence with no concern at all for "what's in it for me" or what makes me feel good. My personal desires are irrelevant. What I do desire is knowledge and understanding, unclouded by political correctness, personal desires or fears. I understand what drives your way of thinking and the motives that keep you from accepting the truth about racial differences in behavior. It’s very similar to the theists determination to deny evolution and create the intelligent design nonsense because it conflicts with their cherished world view.

LOL! It doesn't.

How about YOU explain how blacks who live in the USA in the same climate as whites commit more crime because of temperature and climate.

Pat, on second thought- don't bother.

I'm not blaming white people as a whole for anything.

I DO blame idiot racists like YOU for fueling the fire.

I don't get what your hatred and contempt of blacks does for you, but that's okay- I really don't care what it gets for you.

It does disgust ME, however; therefore, my apologies for even broaching this topic with you.

You will never become less of a racist and I will never become a racist at all.

If only the rest of the world was just laughing at people like RR; sadly, it is people like RR which results in so much of the rest of the world having such animosity toward Americans and toward the USA as a country.

<quoted text>Yes- you DID dispute it and more than once you tried to state as FACT that my home security system is worthless.
And- I could post more sources which also state that alarm systems do help to deter crime.
Long gone? I told you just last evening that my alarm was accidentally set off by my cat sitter and that the police showed up almost immediately after she called me and while we were still on the phone.
I'm not going to debate this with you any further; I am of the opinion that a home security system is an excellent deterrent; there have been some burglaries, home invasions and robberies in my neighborhood over the past 17 years that I've lived here- not many- maybe half a dozen or so- and my home was never one of those that was invaded.
Perhaps that was just luck, perhaps it was due to my alarm system, but as I will never own a gun and even if I did, I wouldn't carry it around all over the house with me-I find my alarm system to offer piece of mind and to afford me protection.
If you think by saying to me that my alarm system is worthless is going to keep me up at night, think again, cookie.
"you DID dispute it and more than once you tried to state as FACT that my home security system is worthless."

.....during a home invasion. Why do you have to dishonestly leave that part out?

I simply point out the obvious about alarms and home invasion and that a thief can be in and out fo your alarmed home long before the police ever arrive. It happens all the time around here.

"If you think by saying to me that my alarm system is worthless is going to keep me up at night, think again, cookie."

Why do you need to turn everything into an emotional rant like this?
