"At least my ridiculous & irreverant post had something (somewhat) weakly related to the Topix topic, wouldn't you agree?"<quoted text>
Let me quote yourself: "the conversation that was going when you started this was about the shootings in California and had nothing to do with drones".
Now the Topix topic, printed in bold at the top of the page: "THE PRESIDENT HAS FAILED US"
At least my ridiculous & irreverant post had something (somewhat) weakly related to the Topix topic, wouldn't you agree? There's certainly nothing in the LA shooting that relates to Obama, is there?
They'll catch the LA shooter. It's an godawful, horrible mess, to be sure. But in the long run what we do with our drones over other people's countries is far more important.
As long as we agree that your post was ridiculous, irrelevant and only vaguely related to the topic I think we've made considerable progress.
