My guess, pretty saddened, and probably good and pissed.
Having to share iot with a creature like you who presumes to be its spokesperson would **** off a saint. Now back to Mommy's basement with you.

Nice response, attack me, instead of; "Dad gum, you are right, that was pretty darned unthinking of me, I should have known that the state that has had more of its men make the ultimate sacrifice in Iraq and Afghanistan than any other state, is indeed, a valuable and patriotic part of the United States, not to mention that California has more living Veterans than any other state, I am so sorry".

Missouri is calling you, California ain't.

Damn this is such a sad post to read

It seems at this point that everyone should have their hatred out of their system by now!

Peace out everyone who is participating in the flame war.

I find it appalling that supposed veterans would consider California as not part of America. For the reasons I posted, it is very much part of America.

Listen, as TV15 said, this is tired and done. Highnlite, you should not be engaging in these sorts of discussions with him. We know how bigoted he can come across in the things he says. I used to get on his case for that as well. To him, America is a homogeneous society where everyone is the same and there's no diversity, exactly what this country is NOT all about. You can't argue with someone like that, just wait for the day when those of his ilk are no longer around and the rest of us can finally move forward.

I agree, but, two things,
1. If he is tired of being hassled for his non stove remarks (non stove,,,,,, De Ranged) a form of humor, he can stop posting.

2. I get so tired of conservatives thinking they are the only real Americans.

I did know that. It has this thing called the largest population in the country. I know the numbers as well as you know my reference to "America" in no way counted CA out of that designation but you're crass and discgusting enough to twist it to your own use which I find insulting to boots-on-the-ground veterans like myself regardless of what state they hail from.

And as you've been from the beginning, you're wrong again.
