I guess as long as we have people like you, we have to spell out everything very specifically and in small words, otherwise you will take our intent and misconstrue the intent to serve your ideological purpose.

This isn't attacking your intelligence. It is saying that you will turn our meaning into something other than its original intent. Much the same as you are attempting to do now. Language has to be used that is very specific and that includes the use of smaller words that cannot be used in another context.
It was an insult. Period.

Sorry you don't get it.

You must be as much fun at parties as your pals on this thread. Be sure to tell someone at the next one you attend that since they don't understand big words, you have to use small ones in talking to them, and see how that goes.

Facts (which I would dispute with my own facts if I cared enough to go down the rabbit hole with you) that had nothing to do with my post.

Off you go, wandering away …

Oh, I get it.. You are going to turn my words into an insult to you now, so you can be a victim. I am done here.. I won't apologize.

That's actually pretty funny. You are going to dispute CNN's data?

I'd LOVE to see you try.

But according to historians Steven Mintz and Sara McNeil, the number of cases of starvation in New York City alone had increased from 20 in 1931 to 110 in 1934.

And malnutrition was a much larger problem. One 1933 study of 514 children in New York found that more than one-third were in "poor" or "very poor" health.
