    People are often given the option to resign instead of being fired. You can't possibly be serious in following this obtuse line of argument. Everyone knows Brashir was forced to resign. Sheesh, you Righties are a trip.

    it's all speculation.

    some people act in economic interests. some want to be liked. some act on principals, even if it means not being liked.

    some are stupid, and they do one of the above, but get it wrong.

    I think at least a third of the outrage comes from the perception he's a uneducated, back-water hick, something the elitist Left can't stomach. 8)

    part of it is that the left can't stand to see an uneducated, back-water kick that is a self-made millionaire, instead of living in a shack being dependent on the gubbermint. His example threatens their agenda.

    And do you know why they are offerred that option? Because there's a difference between resigning and being fired.

    I'm not arguing anything, just reminding you that you can't play fast and loose with the facts without getting called on it.

    LOL....YOU signed one.....yet you want to speculate.....that Ducky did not!

    Go away.




    I have no idea. I'm not the one who made any claims about it.
    You are speculating that I am incorrect...even while you confirm the common use of the very thing I believe is at hand.

    If you want to practice this, all you have to do is subtract a few key ingredients and put in others. "Gun owners are part of a national sickness like racism, rape, and murder."
    Wrong. You are attempting to grade or rank sins, by noting that some are more serious (also criminal acts) than others, and then accusing him of not comparing the severity of sins when he was simply listing some of them. I may say that crimes include trespass, arson, jaywalking and murder yet that is not implying, in any way, that all crimes should have the same sentence or that I have listed all crimes. Just as all sins are not crimes, all crimes are not sins - there is overlap but that is not relevant to discussion of either sin or crime.
