    It's not changes to the Constitution that worry us, it's circumventions of the Constitution that worry us. And it's those to execute the latter that don't use the constitutionally created methods.

    Oh come on, let's be honest. It is people who interpret the constitution differently than you that worry you. You all think only your interpretation is valid.

    In some ways I would love to see that revolution. Purge some of the stupid from the gene pool. Too many innocents any good people would get hurt in addition however.

    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.
    I think you might actually be ignorant of what you did wrong, so much so that you think I'm lying, so let me enlighten you. Post #158, you side-stepped Paschendale's post by replying you couldn't finish reading it, a real sad side-step at that. Then, in post 160, I posted a quote from you, and asked you if that's what you really meant to say. Obviously, your couldn't read it thing was a shoddy attempt to get out of a conversation you knew you weren't going to win.

    I'm not sure how you made the leap of imagination to me being dishonest, but you then attempted to tell me I was pro gun control, while in post 163 I highlighted your failed attempt at dodging Paschendale's argument, but by then you started to cling to the "but you're a liar!" defense. Then, in a great example of circular logic, you said you wouldn't believe my position on gun control can neither be categorized as pro or anti gun because I was dishonest about my opinion on gun control.

    It's all there, pages 16 to 17, friend. The conversation proceeded from there. Again, I'd refer you to post 163 as to your options for the actual debate in this thread. But by now, I'm sure you've conveniently lost all interest in addressing arguments against you.

    Usually, I just think it, but it's occasionally useful to write it out, to point out a person's attempted deceit.

    I don't make assumptions, I make inferences and conclusions based on evidence and experience. I can understand it's hard for people who haven't been around here a long time. But there are patterns that repeat in nearly every debate, and Thrilla fell perfectly into the one I pointed out.

    Meh, it's just the crazies that are rattling louder than usual. The majority of Americans have no appetite to pick up arms against their own citizens over gay marriage or tax increases on the rich. Especially when most Americans are content with the society they're in. Why would they leave their comfortable middle-class lifestyle to go shoot each other over politics? We're supposed to be a "first-world" country, as they say.

    You didn't paraphrase what Thrilla said. Claiming that you did really is deceitful, and anybody can go back a few pages and see this for him/herself.

    This is how I feel as well. If it were possible for idiots to revolt in a way that only got them arrested and permanently removed from society without hurting anybody else, I'd be all for it. Society would be able to progress a lot more easily.

    horse****... i'm getting a lil bit tired of you trying to validate your dishonesty.
    I was not in conversation with Pash... I merely commented in his delusional opinion the lazy people do not exist.... I won't entertain anyones writing who is either that dumb or that delusional,no sense in wasting my time on such idiocy.
    anyways, there was no conversation...I stopped reading his arguments after the first few sentences..... and then your dumba ass chimes in to draw conclusions about me that you dreamed up and try to pass off as fact
    you are simply dishonest.






    I'm not sure how you made the leap of imagination to me being dishonest, but you then attempted to tell me I was pro gun control, while in post 163 I highlighted your failed attempt at dodging Paschendale's argument, but by then you started to cling to the "but you're a liar!" defense. Then, in a great example of circular logic, you said you wouldn't believe my position on gun control can neither be categorized as pro or anti gun because I was dishonest about my opinion on gun control.
    really?... you are not sure how I made the leap?... despite you changing the words of my posts and replacing my words with yours.. despite drawing conclusions that you dreamed up in your little mind... you do not understand how i made the leap?
    it seems i have given you too much credit here... i figured you would understand what dishonesty is.... and It's obvious I have erred in that estimation.

    listen dude... I did not type what you presented as my post.... those were not my words... they were YOUR words.
    YOU were DISHONEST in changing my post... it really is that simple.

    as for your position on gun control.. I don't give a flat ****... the overriding issue is that you are dishonest and i do not trust anything you have to say... you have proven yourself to be untrustworthy, period.
    seriously dude, it's not my fault you lied.... you will not spin this into being my fault.... I will not allow it.


    It's all there, pages 16 to 17, friend. The conversation proceeded from there. Again, I'd refer you to post 163 as to your options for the actual debate in this thread. But by now, I'm sure you've conveniently lost all interest in addressing arguments against you.
    I highly doubt more than a few are interested... but for those whom are, your dishonesty is on display here..... your words that you attributed to me have not been changed, not do I expect them to be ( were you possessing of integrity, they would have been changed long ago)

    don't be "sure" of things you cannot and do not know... I have zero problem addressing any arguments against me... I do, however, have a problem with dishonest people like you... I will not respond to folks like you with anything but the disdain and incivility they deserve.


    if anything comes of this, I would hope it is you learning not to change other peoples post...such dishonesty will not win you favor or benefit your credibility.
