That is to say, palpable contempt on the part of political advocates keeps moving the margin on what's reasonable and acceptable until nearly anything that isn't a slap to the face can feel like fair game.
    I think it's from an underlying confidence that in violent times and circumstances, that we collectively debate the weightiest of weighty matters then, that this is making the best of a bad situation, fundamentally, and can be seen (because I see it this way) as a very positive thing. (Not the violence but inflammatory responses to the violence.) It's fruit from the tree of the Bill of Rights, namely the freedom of speech, and we are using our God-endowed right to speak whatever's on our minds, in violent times and circumstances, to try to do the heavy lifting portion of hammering out needed improvement. We can't have people shooting people playing baseball, that'd kill professional sports dead for one thing, so we know that whatever improvement we make must address this. At the same time, Americans have the (unfortunately IMO) peculiar value that we are free to keep and bear firearms. So improvement must also address this, at the same time as it addresses the matter of people shooting people playing baseball.

    You're obviously concerned with what I write or you wouldn't be here.

    Sod is likely still posting bits of mine that are largely distorted and carefully cherry picked, but I can't say for certain, because I don't care enough about his opinion to read his threads.

    You come looking. And because you do you end up here. If you don't want to end up here stop seeking me out elsewhere.

    You can stamp your foot all you like. It doesn't take more than a moment to post around you once on a day and your ongoing temper will only draw more interest to the particulars in the Wrap. Not a problem, which is why you'll notice I haven't reported you.

    I think it's a wee bit funny.

    There wasn't a link, sod.

    You had to be reading through to see any mention of you, which was made as a cautionary advance for glory.

    That's why I'm here. Is that not clear?


    I saw you quoting me so you could talk ABOUT me....not in order to engage me in dialogue. I'm only doing what needs to be done when I point out your obsession with gossip.

    I don't read your tripe otherwise. Nor do I read the Star at the checkout stands, but I'm sure I would if I saw myself being the subject of gossip. Then I would sue.

    Really? It tells you where you're being quoted. That would be enough for me if I didn't care for the individual.

    And gossip and slander does "concern" me.
    Slandered by your own words? So you agree with me then.

    Here's what there was outside of a literal reposting of quotes:

    "Then glory weighed in...

    Or was it that glory never really left? (extra rep pts available)...

    That wrapped with..."

    That's gossip? No. That's slander? No. The rest is you.

    Speaking of, here was your response:

    I think something is, but not the something you're angling for here.

    I saw you quoting me so you could talk ABOUT me
    Except that I didn't really. I reposted a few bits with links and put a lead on it.

    ....not in order to engage me in dialogue.
    The Wrap isn't about engaging in dialogue because the dialogue is going on in the thread linked to. It wouldn't make any particular sense to have the same conversation in two places. And in any event I demonstrated your interest in dialogue with your first three posts. It's another thing you made up as you went along.

    I'm only doing what needs to be done when I point out your obsession with gossip.
    Which isn't what's actually happening (see: the actual above), only how you attempt to justify your impulse.

    I don't read your tripe otherwise.
    To quote you, "Liar."

    Nor do I read the Star at the checkout stands, but I'm sure I would if I saw myself being the subject of gossip. Then I would sue.
    You'd have to sue yourself...again, quotes and whatnot.
    You aren't what you eat, but you're always what you swallow.

    And don't you love how he picks a few of our words out of context, and then proceeds to pontificate ......providing himself a soapbox to polish his previous comments.


    That way he gets a rehearsal before his big debut here. Such a clever fellow.
