Good for you. Luckily, I'm not busy right now.

Sorry but I don't get your point here, not sure what one has to do with the other.

AND your attempt to mis-state my opinion on sex offenders to undermine my position doesn't really work. I think your going to have to look a long way to find anyone on this board that sympathizes with the plight of sex offenders, unless of course they are in fact sex offenders.

Well, I'm not a sex offender, and I don't endorse sex offenders. But I don't endorse phobic over-reactions to them either. Phobic over-reactions are in general a bad idea...

I find this forum to be both right wing and seriously of the christian only view.
There are some religious who are downright lovely and open-minded, thoughtful and kind, generous of spirit, but they're the minority.
I find that most right wing people on this forum seem to be very "religious."

Everybody believes in a god, it's just that conservatives don't think they are one . Liberals think they came from slime or a god they can rule over, conservativs think they are divinely created and need guidance . Most foxholes have all conservaties in them .

Well, that's a nice little talisman to carry around with you. The fact that it's horse-hockey probably won't matter...

I hope you're not TOO upset when you finally realize it's not a name or a word, it's an acronym.

Well I just put an accurate Starret level on top of my puter and the table it sits on and it is dead on level. I can assure you nothing here leans either way.

Oh and I dont need wings to fly. I can fly without them.
