Can we please  get back to discussing the debate?  I'm tired of the back and forth over the use of the ethnic slur.  Let's drop it and go on.  Please!

Byron, you can call it "tattling" or "snitching" if you want, but when the topic degrades from conversation, to histrionics, to downright abusive, slanderous outlashing, it's in nobody's best interest. Even in this part of the forum.

So I called on a Mod. Sue me. If you think you can reason an apology, or a relaxing of Ronkny's attitude, go for it (although historically, you are one person who continually excites him, right or wrong - and you know that you yank his chain as much as he yanks everyone else's. Children, all of you.

I'm going to go practice.

Jeezus H, why do people have such trouble paying attention to what the frack is going on ...
 
Who wrote what?
 
Who raised the issue?
 
I didn't.
 
I wouldn't have.
 
Not a big deal to me.
 
Now please, carry on with the actual topic of discussion, eh?
 
Damn!

I just returned to the site after a few hours, and man, what a torrent of verbosity has appeared since I left.

Baronbone, Pianoman and Geezer have been so wrapped up in expounding on their moral and intellectual superiority that they completely lost track of the original thread!  Not to worry; this behavior is harmless, and completely consistent with that of your usual leftwing zealot.

These people become so full of themselves that their liberalism becomes a religion...and a fanatical religion at that.  These unfortunates are almost always beyond help, and are best left to themselves to muddle through reality as best they can.

I quoted your entire post and responded to it, and now you're saying I'm off-topic.

Nice try.

I take this as one of the best compliments I have ever received on this Forum!  Thank you!  To be compared in the same company as the Piano Man and The Baron is a high honor that I will try to live up to!  I am not worthy. :)

Children,

Here is a source for political opinion we can all sink our teeth into. :)

Ethnic slur? What ethnic slur? I know ethnic slurs, and that ain't one.  How about "towel head?"  Would that be better?   Idea!

Ask any military personnel returning from the Middle East what they call them.  The appellation "rag head" for the indigenous people of that region is considered proper and polite by those people.

"Rag head" is clearly an ethnic slur. Obviously you are so insensitive that it could never occur to you that it would be offensive to someone.

Your statement that such a foul reference is considered proper and polite by "those people" is laughable if it weren't so scurrilous.

And btw, "those people" makes you sound a lot like Mrs Romney. Oh wait, you are a right winger. Now the racial insensitivity makes complete sense.

And yes, it is a violation of TOU.

Every time that Slick Willard tells a lie, you have to drink.  And, every time Obama fails to challenge those lies, you have to drink again.  I expect to be butt wasted by the end of the debate.

I bought the "official" version, which was of course more of a campaign contribution than anything (I felt compelled to make another donation after the first debate).

I would expect you to be wasted after the 1st 15 minutes. Evil

Do you have enough stuff to drink that much?
