    For a dead person-

    good riddance to human garbage

    glad he is gone

    the world is a better place without him

    I hope he died before spreading his seed

    I hope Satan is shoving a pitchfork up his ass

    I hope those 72 virgins that Akbar is getting is those ,Trekkie and starwars nerds Everquest and dungeons and dragons nerds

    I hope he suffered before he died.

    Singing ding don the mother ****ers dead in a wizard of oz tune.

    I want to piss and or **** on his grave.

    He deserved to die




    Someone in the hospital-

    hope he croaks

    too bad his injuries were not life threatening

    I hope he gets worse

    I hope he suffers

    pretty soon Satan will be shoving a pitchfork up his ass

    Anybody know where his grave is going to be? we can charge people to piss on his grave when he is buried

    he deserves to die
    those aren't just "unkind words"....and i have to say not acceptable for me. better to just say nothing.

    pointing out behaviors of sick or dead people is okay, though, as long as they are factual.

    Even if it just someone totally despicable? Like John Couey(the guy who abducted,murdered and raped Jessica Lunsford)?He died of anal cancer before his sentence was carried out,saved the tax payers lots of money in regard to appeals and scumbag lawyers trying to help him weasel out of his punishment.


    pointing out behaviors of sick or dead people is okay, though, as long as they are factual.

    One person's facts is another person's fairy tale.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    nope, sorry, facts are facts.

    and of course i wasn't sorry when couey died, but i wasn't jumping for joy, either. as for his lawyers, they were doing their jobs, distasteful or not.

    a lot of people make spur of the moment comments, and i have as well.

    but somehow, i figure god (or goddess, or someone) makes things right eventually.

For example, the proper way to respond to a question is typically to answer it. Responding with additional fuzzy statements that don't in any way address the other person's requests for clarification kind of sucks the fun out of it.

    I sort of suspect that your response to this post will be along the lines of "I like macaroni."

    Exactly, that's why a lot of stupid people love limbaugh.

    The problem I have with your idea of how to conduct a debate, is the topic changes from it's original Focus points, to attacks against the person making the statements. There is nothing personal to debate here. I don't know anyone on this Forum. And have nothing personal to debate them about. Once the conversation strays from the topic, and turns into insults and name calling, --then it is just an argument. And I don't argue. --I can debate, or I can fight--but I haven't argued in many years. We have a saying here, "Let the other guy tell his Lie, it doesn't concern you"
