    I'm more upset about them creating socialist toys that would choke babies in their sleep.

    I guess my point is....

    If you're doing it as a personal thing based on a personal decision, no issues there.

    If you're doing it as part of some grander "cause", arguing about it with people to tell them why they're wrong or why you're so much more right, trying to make it up as some principled stand on your part against bigotry, insulting or degrading or attacking those that don't agree with boycotting it, or other such things then that's the point where my ability to excuse your ignorance and selective outrage because that's the point where, to me, you're in it for the attention and the conflict and the self importance and ability to be be participating in the movement of hte moment then it is an honest to goodness simple stand against something you dislike.

    Well, the Muppets have a long track record of tolerating inter-species relationships (a frog and a pig?). So it shouldn't surprise anyone that gays don't bother them.

    Do you acknowledge the FACT (not opinion, not feeling, not impression) that no one is telling (with or without force of law) the CFA owner to whom or what he can (MAY, actually) or can't (MAY NOT) donate money?

    YES

    or

    NO

    If you had read my earlier post, I said it was illegal for the mayors to ban Chick and they knew it. But it didn't stop them from saying exactly what they "would have done" had they the power to do it.

    IMO, iF the mayors had had the power to ban Chick, they would.

    I've also stated that the money/support he gives to any organization is his business. It ain't my money . . . . nor anyone elses.

    The owers problem, and the only reason everyone is in a tizzy is he didn't lie or "mis-speak" or "mis-communicate" or all the other wordsmithing we us inorder to not say we flat out lied. He told the people/media where he gave his money and why. Had he lied, this "bug tussle" wouldn't have existed.


    But for all those who want to boycott this business, again . . . . it's your right to do so. Knock yourself out.

    Magic. It's just there in the air...
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    He likely won't. Derailing and obfuscating is --based upon his posts-- a higher priority for him.
    I've moved on to a better forum (scienceforums.net). Facts matter, and I don't have the time or energy for putting up with the pretense that they don't. PM me if you'd like me to get in touch with you when I'm done developing my own forum system, likely towards the end of 2013.
