Okay... here we go again. I see you got some good icon's. A friend, maybe? They are good to have as a following. Guess they don't care for Lawrence Wolf. So the gang is all here to gang up.
As you know, I play my own drum and dance to my own beat.
So, I really see all of you as breathing typing humans. Some kinder than others. Some hard as fucking hell to tolerate. But I make me. I want to play nice in the sandbox when I come around.
So now...back to you. Is 'have taken'.
Screw the whole lot of us and our grammar. I took your word usage to the big dogs.
You got a 40% on Should have 'took'.
When putting in: Should have taken. It gave me a 100%
Here test the waters for yourself and see:
http://www.grammarly.com/...
I am pointing this out, for it has taken decades for me to learn to wing 'proper' English. My ex comes from a entire family of teachers.
I needed to learn the proper way to tell them all to screw off politely!
As said in earlier post, is good to learn. No matter who you be, how old you are, or how stubborn you can get.
Have a good night.
P.S. Are you from the south?
south of Canada , what took you so long ...or do you prefer the past tense what has taken you so long .. now are you going to cry some more ,

me ,I prefer the took.. the future adventure , instead of taken

see taken only means you didn't learn from the past.... but have it your way

I never icon , so what is your problem there ..

did you want me to use a [?] mark or is a statement ok?

Indeed. I have used the spelling for color as colour since I can remember.

See, am second born American. My people are from eastern Europe.

It is correct:

Instead of some contrived observation in order to insult.

and now, for the rest, of the story...
The woman was actually fired, for being, a bitch! Co-workers stated that she was cranky, sour and simply cantankerous. They also stated that she had a life size cardboard cutout of Obama that she would perform inappropriate act on in full view of the rest of the staff.

You are right, of course...but, this is the kind of story, that only serves to make the republican's look more mean-spirited and partisan than ever.....Hope that someday, they find their way back to the mainstream of society.....

When will you move back to the mainstream from the Socialist moron fringe? If mainstream means being a Liberal whackjob, I hope Republicans and Conservatives never go there. Don't you have some Constitution to trample and burn?

Possibly.
It's hard to believe that (in this
country) we don't have a law aimed
at ppl who discriminate against their
employees based on political party or
presidential choice.
Everyone should be free to vote for
who their conscience tells them to w/o
worry of retaliation.
I imagine it isn't against the law because historically it's not something that folks have been discriminated on the basis of. If you look at what the protected classes are, it's usually groups of people who have historically had a problem with discrimination.

I personally, don't think it is right to fire someone because of their political beliefs.

Tell that wrote:
<quoted text>To the UNIONS/Democrats...
That is very true. I know my FIL was told by union officials that their jobs would be at risk if Bush was elected over Gore.

However, there is a difference between telling someone they may lose their job because of the policies of certain party being in power and discriminating against folks who voted for that party and firing them over others because of who they voted for. I would like to think we could all agree that this is not right, and I am no fan of Obama.

Once again, I don't know what colour you are ....but by your words, will guess.
As long as you keep this mindset, "That's why those of us who don't have to make that choice should be fighting for those who do.", you will remain a slave in your mind.
Don't.
Set yourself free.
Teach others the fight is over. Stop over trying to prove a point that hasn't any merit in a modern day and age.
The only people keeping black folk down...is black folk.
As far as whites, there will always be red-necks. Someone has to work on cars.
I think what you say is rubbish, sir or madam.
Enjoy your Ayn Rand collection.
For the record, I am white, purely an accident of birth.
