    That solution has been consistently ignored since I suggested it. It doesn't have the "desired" outcome.

    And I'm proud of it because it makes your blood boil.

    Even if it weren't perverted, it'd be rather unhealthy to live to spite someone else, especially someone you've never actually met. Of course habitually engaging in the unnatural vice is unhealthy in itself, so ...

    In any case, I wasn't expressing disgust in that post, I was only informing him that his polemic was not discrediting.

    I don't live to spite you, I just consider it bonus points that my sexuality pisses you off. I do wish, however, that you'd learn to mind your own business on that front. But since you don't, I might as well have fun with it.

    Yeah, those damn processed foods, vaccines, and polyester clothing! Oh yeah and **** air conditioning, that's unnatural too.

    Well I do not take any pleasure from the fact that I annoy you.

    Exactly, if they wanted to keep the mall, white house, capital hill and the little surrounding area where no one lives or no residents resides, so be it. Now the president lives at 1600 Penn Ave., but he always votes in his home state. Sort of like the military. For the city folks who live and reside in D.C., make them citizens of Maryland. Let common sense prevail.

    That makes sense to me. And if Maryland doesn't want it so be it. Those who choose to live in DC choose to do so knowing they won't have privileges of statehood. There are states within minutes of where they live where they could move if it is important to them. The last time I looked Maryland was mostly a blue state and Virginia is still thought of as a red state. So the people in the 'no man's land' in between even have an ideological choice. But it is ridiculous that DC is even a city, let alone being made a state.
