    I didn’t realize a message board handle meant all that much.

    Duly noted.

    Actually I type too much, but I'm not gonna deny you're bigger point by getting into semantics.

    I've never been very good at keeping my posts brief, outside of a one-liner here and there, or a simple :censored2: off when it's called for.

    But I've also never really had a problem with self-awareness either.

    im all in favor of increasing attentions spans, but sometimes im not gonna read long stuff.///

    btw what issues do the left and right agree on in america?

    are we experiencing divide and conquer by the ruling class?

    what policies do republican and democrat politicians support which their constituents do not?

    I see that I made a spelling error in my post that replied to @rickyb.

    *you're = your

    Auto-correct I'm sure, but it still chaps my :censored2: ass either way - I'm anal about spelling mistakes. Always have been since the days of my youth. As a former Scripps Howard spelling bee winner, this is extremely embarrassing.

    Lemme know which days you're not up to reading long posts, please. I'll try to keep them shorter...

    Because everything I post is for, or with, you in mind. If there's even a remote chance you won't read it, then I don't even wanna bother, my dude.

    What’s amusing to me is that you both are 60-65% simpatico.

    Maybe you both just had a bad start.

    No, he annoyed the :censored2: out of me in the 9/11 thread I made on Memorial Day when he wouldn't stop posting conspiracy theories and anti-gov't rhetoric in it, despite being asked repeatedly by multiple people to knock it off.

    I actually agree with him on quite a few things, including some of his conspiracies.

    I do think he's a basic bitch, but still. He's aight otherwise.

    You should probably talk about how you're retired and we're not. That seems to be of great enjoyment to you. So maybe that's the missing ingredient to boost this thread up a few notches in your book.
