    A Call-Out Thread For Town Heretic

    Not a call-out thread, per se, more of a "Yoo-Hoo!" for town to clarify the meaning of a phrase he uses often:

    ...something established within the compact...



    and that's just since January 1st



    the other day I asked him straight-out:

    that request for a definition got buried in another line of dialogue that was ongoing, so I thought it merited its own thread

    darned if i know, but it's a term he uses a lot (and nobody else uses at all in this context), so it seemed worth nailing down what he thinks he means by it

    Toyota didn't invent that word. It has a meaning also, and he is using it correctly when he does.
    Jesus saves completely. http://www.climatedepot.com/ http://www.thereligionofpeace.com/

    Titus 1

    For there are many insubordinate, both idle talkers and deceivers, especially those of the circumcision, whose mouths must be stopped

    Ephesians 5

    11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them. 12 For it is shameful even to speak of those things which are done by them in secret
