    How do you live with yourself then?

    I'm not part of this debate. It's between you and Paschendale....or it was until you realized you were in over your head.

    No, we don't do that here. Changing the posts of others is not an acceptable debate/discussion technique here. By doing so you have invalidated anything further you have to say on the topic.

    It can only be a Civil War if the insurgents obtain uniforms and have a top military General, or leader. Otherwise it's just criminals getting shot, killed, and arrested.

    Besides, I can't pick a side. I'm neutral.

    I'm sorry, but I do believe I've been around longer than you have. Certainly a longer time period than you. As long as the...technique...doesn't violate the forum rules, it's permissible. To my knowledge, deciphering what another person here says is indeed central to the premise of presenting a rebuttal. If you've never done it before, well I daresay that your debating style is fundamentally flawed.

    Except that's not the definition of "civil war".

    A civil war is a war between organized groups within the same nation state or republic,[1] or, less commonly, between two countries created from a formerly united nation state.[2] The aim of one side may be to take control of the country or a region, to achieve independence for a region, or to change government policies.

    nah, not confusing at all....you have lied to me, and about me, more in one afternoon than I have lied to myself in 60 years....

    some folks are cut out for honesty, some aren't.... the two normally don't get along well.


    You could have just manned up and changed your post, you instead chose to double down on your bull****. ....but meh, your character flaws are your problem.

    trying to validate your dishonesty?.. really?.. why am i not surprised.

    sorry bud, but you attributed words to me that were not mine... those were your words .... you simply lied.
    lying is not a valid debate technique... and it's a fundamental character flaw.

    the only thing worse than a liar is a liar who is trying to convince people lying is good and proper.... **** that.

    Most elections are pretty close to 50/50. We still get along.... usually.

    Our country is growing more divided, but its still no where near on the scale as the division in pre-civil war America. No where close.

    You call changing someone else's post "debate"? I call it "chicken****."
