And there you have it, spider1954. How do you now rate prospects of having a rational discussion except off the record? I foresaw this and made a sensible offer. It still stands. Another poster here can vouch for the merit of that where I am concerned.:)

Life is full of little irritations,,it surprises me that you should find this particular one such a distraction.
Now,,how about the acknowlegment of my post.

Why don't you talk about that.

Please introduce me to our fellow poster, I would like to know if he or she shares my views.

Well to me it doesn't make sense - re Aelaidean's offer to continue the discussion off-forum - it is entirely up to you but I can certainly understand his suggestion - it allows a 'disruption-free' exchange :)

That is a bigoted remark about your President....If he were a Fuhrer you and the NRA would be in concentration camps by now...no you say, you are living a free life and have access to weapons easily available on every street corner....and you get to speak out about it yet you are still alive.....funny, it just goes to show how clueless paranoid delusionalists you gun supporters are....
I don't doubt he would if he could. How about the Imperial President? Would that suit you better? Here is one example of the president's imperial ways. The NLRB is part of his branch of government.

His appointments were found to be unconstitutional yet he continues despite a court ruling.

He continues to not enforce laws passed by congress by executive order.
