Before you point it out, I didn't thuroughly read the part of your first post concerning abortion, so I messed up the first few sentences of my post. You can use that as one of your points when you try to make me look foolish in your next response. Consider it a freebee. (And yes, I think that women should have that choice.)  (Dec 22, 2012 | post #9)

Pro Life?

Well, I'd like to start my retort by stating that I am not against abortion, and that I agree that women should have that choice. I never said they didn't. As for your argument concerning things like "dirty bombs" and "rocket propelled grenades," I think you missed the point I was trying to make. I was talking about the fact that Thomas Jefferson and the other founders were concerned about the government going wrong. I agree that this may not justify the things you mentioned, but I was mainly talking about assault rifles and pistols, not bombs. I believe you took what I said out of context. That's like me arguing that your beliefs would lead us into the society straight out of George Orwell's 1984. I wasn't trying to justify mass murder, I was trying to justify owning assault weapons so they could be used for what our rights intended them for. As for your argument about how out founding fathers didn't "envision guns that can spray hundreds of rounds," tell me how our nation's armed forces would work against the others without use of machine guns, semi automatics, and bombs? Don't, because you know it wouldn't. The world would walk all over us. The reason these things can be justified is that everyone else uses them because they are the best weapons available. If the constitution was ratified in, say, 800 A.D., would they have foresaw muskets? No, they wouldn't, and using them if they had them would have been completely understandable. Note to Vinny: I didn't resort to calling names, mostly for the fact that it would make me look like an idiot. Please don't make assumtions just because your side seems to be winning. Thank you.  (Dec 22, 2012 | post #8)

what happened to the other reindeer in town?

Wow, a sense of humor on Topix. You are a rare find indeed.  (Dec 18, 2012 | post #8)

I see the point that you're trying to make, but I don't think you comprehend the second ammendment. The second amendment isn't just about the ability to own a firearm, it's about Freedom. The founding government included it in the Constitution for other purposes, as listed below: "Deterring tyrannical government," "Repelling invasion," "Suppressing insurrection" "Facilitating a natural right of self-defense, " "Participatin g in law enforcement," "Enabling the people to organize a militia system." You see, this right wasn't just about recreation, or even home defense, but about the preservation of our rights as Americans. That's why these "right winged gun lovers," are so stubborn. Surrendering our right to own firearms, even assault rifles, is hypocratic, and shouldn't be allowed. What you are saying directly opposes the intentions of our founding government. Now, on an unrelated note, here is a list of crimes that were prevented by armed citizens: Detroit, Michigan: Pizza delivery man fights back after being ambushed Belgrade, Nebraska: Shooting called self-defense Wauconda, Illinois: Pharmacist shoots robbery suspect Boston, Massachusetts: Store Clerk Shoots Man In Botched Robbery Armed Pastor Holds Thieves for Police Sacramento, California: Would-be robbers flee after market employee fires gun in air Hazleton, Pennsylvania: Home invasion intruder killed Indianapolis, Indiana: Man fatally shot during car break-in These are all real headlines. If you want to read the full stories, they're on thearmedcitizen.co m. Now, please make a compelling counter-argument that has a valid point. Have a good day.  (Dec 18, 2012 | post #2)

who put all the sports signs on ford street

Big Boss, the school did not pay for these signs. They were made by the students participating in sports. I understand that you may be angry that the school's renovation project wasn't passed, but that is no reason to rant about something that isn't even vaguely related. Now, let me proceed to give you something to complain about, and tell you all of the things wrong with your post: The first sentence in your post appears to be a retorical question, meaning that a question mark should end it, not a period. Next, I would like to point out a problem with saying "They will not tell me," while referring to the price of the signs. I am going to make a wild assumption and say that you never asked anyone about it, and you just like to complain about the community to get attention. On the other hand, if you did actually ask about this, I would like to congradulate you on your newly acquired title of "Person of the Year." Nobody less would ask such a meaningful, well thought question but you. (Now, because you appear to be in possession of such a large amount of blatant stupidity, I would like to point out the fact that my last sentence was sarcastic. With this point I close my argument.)  (Dec 13, 2012 | post #10)

Resident, I believe you have made a grammical error in your own crude correction of my post. Before using the word probably, a you should be placed in front to clarify the fact that you are directing it towards me. What your sentence would be if it was correct: You probably should check your spelling before you sarcastically call someone intelligent. So, now can you explain to me how terribly unintelligent I am for making minor spelling errors in an online forum? I would very much like to hear from you on the subject.  (Dec 5, 2012 | post #11)

Dip, it seems to me that all you care about is trying to degrade things that you don't understand. I really don't see what buisness you have encouraging the stupidity that has been underway since this thread was started. Also, I'd like to ask you why you think this woman is "stupid, " when she is trying to defend the perfectly innocent people being insulted here. You disgust me, you arrogant bigot.  (Dec 5, 2012 | post #20)

You know, if I was trying to do this, I don't think I could find a single place nearly as terrible as topix for it. Congradulations my friend, you are officially a genious. If I had a cookie, it would be yours. You are just so mindblowingly intelligent, I can't even comprehend how great you must be. I bow down to you, sir. You are truly a gentleman and a scholar.  (Nov 28, 2012 | post #7)

I don't see why this thread needed to be posted. It seems like I can't come on Topix at all anymore without seeing somebody sharing hateful, pointless words. You know, this may be the most shameful display I've read yet. Congradulations, your better than them because you can facelessly insult them. The only justifiable post here is about the dog. That I can understand, but must you all join in on this pointlessness? I mean, really, it's not your buisness what other people do unless it affects you. Even if these things are true, have some principals. Resorting to this just makes you look equivalently foolish.  (Nov 26, 2012 | post #11)

dirt bags of gouvy

I don't condone what's written here about anyone, mostly because it's hateful, pointless spam, but I'd appreciate it if you were more specific with your lists. I already think your an idiot for posting this list anyway, but if your going to do it, do it well. My last name is Prashaw, and I don't believe I have any personal connections to the people you are (quite crudely) referring to. It's none of my buisness what they do with themselves, so I don't really care, but I don't appreciate you saying "all Prashaws are scumbags," because that is terribly inaccurate. If you feel the need to anonymously trash talk people you have no buisness speaking of, that's all well and good with me, mostly because if I tried to tell you all the things wrong with that, you would simply ignore or flame me. Well, I'm about done, so feel free to take this advice to heart, or just flame me. Im not going to reply or read it anyway, I just wanted to emphasize the importance of being specific. You have a pleasent day now. Note: As I said earlier, I don't really know any of the people you've listed, so I don't know how they act, nor do I care. I'm not defending anyone, just trying to elaborately explain how blatantly stupid your post is. And please, if you want to do this again some time, please try to write it without sounding like a dyslexic third grader. Grammer isn't hard, nor is spelling. And yes, using slang on a forum makes you sound like an idiot. Rofl is not a word.  (Nov 26, 2012 | post #22)

The thing about this post that disgusts me is the fact that anyone could possibly be such a bigot. I mean, truthfully, can you explain to me why you believe in superiority over them purely because of sexual orientation? I'm being serious. Being this blatantly ignorant deserves an explanation. Can you please do us a favor and explain why you felt the need to waste anyone's time with such dribble? I await an explanation.  (Nov 20, 2012 | post #6)

As you can tell by my former posts, busted, I don't really care about who knows my true identity. Also, I can't honestly believe anyone on this forum can really be stupid enough to try to assault or harrass me over an internet post. Even if they were, I'm a minor. I don't think any more explanation of why I shouldn't be afraid is necessary.  (Nov 11, 2012 | post #15)

who do u think of when u think easy lay

It's alright. They would have said what they said anyway. As always, they feel obligated to tell me that I'm not as intelligent as them, almost purely because of my age. If I hadn't said it in an earlier post, I'm almost positive they wouldn't be flaming me as they are now. Honestly, I wasn't aware that my credibility could be taken away by somebody pointing out an error I made in a previous post, even if it was an honest mistake. Well, I think I'm done with this site for a while. It really is full of negativity, even towards the people who try to make a positive argument. Goodbye everyone. For a while anyway. P.S. Parent, I really don't me posting in an internet forum is accurately interpreted as "being led astray and sucked into a world of lies!" I'm sorry, but that's a bit of an exaggeration. Furthermore, I don't take kindly to insults to my intelligence. I may be young, but you should be smart enough not to prejudice me because of that fact. You haven't met me in person, so you don't have that right. Now, everyone, feel free to flame me and judge all of my posts negatively. I hope that one day you may all seperate from the ignorance that has so crudely blinded you.  (Nov 11, 2012 | post #33)

who do u think of when u think easy lay

I thank you for your concern, but as far as I can see, I have just as much buisness in these conversations as anyone else here does. I am almost positive that more than a few of the comments I respond to aren't just from adults. Furthermore, I have never said anything about being "all of something your not," or anything pertaining to that statement. I'm not entirely sure where you obtained the idea that I think I am. Lastly, I'd like to tell you that what I say or do is my buisness, and imposing otherwise towards me, a person that you do not know personally, is hypocratic, disrespectful, and ignorant.  (Nov 8, 2012 | post #30)

If you don't like my posts, I don't see any reason you would need to read them. As for your personal opinions toward me, I don't hold them in remotely high reguards, mostly because of the fact that I don't know you, and the way you state your opinion is quite blunt. I would even go as far as to call you a bigot for the way you've expressed your view. Also, I'd like to add that if you don't have anything relevant, or at least somewhat positive to contribute to a thread, please try to use your better judgement and not waste the time of people on the forums. Thank you very much.  (Nov 8, 2012 | post #10)
