    Word...There was no high road anywhere in that thread and to be honest, it should be moved to the thunderdome.

    Just wondering.
    No it is not required.

    Now let me ask you this. Do you feel that your right to not hear the words
    that you do not like trumps my right to say the words that I like to use?

    I'm thinking it's the attitude more than the words.
    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.

    There were a few level-headed people posting in that thread

    And some people ignore other parts of their personality for the trait or behavior that is their personal bugbear.

    I admit I didn't. But I sure as hell ain't sorry and I sure as hell will do it again. If people think they're going just let me swallow whatever bullshit they have to say about people like me because I'm on their side politically? You must be kidding. Libs are one thing, but I WILL beat harder, meaner and dirtier on someone that I think should KNOW BETTER.

    Context doesn't matter to this liberal it seems/ as long as it satisfies his godless dreams/ like monkeys throwing sh!t as castles in air/ as long as he throws/that is the extent of his care.
