There's apparently more than our culture that you don't understand.

You don't even understand what racism is.

People have truly suffered under racism in this country.

Please don't diminish the reality and magnitude of their genuine suffering by including yourself in their ranks for some cheap, fraudulent, personal satisfaction.

That's going over the line.

 

Mentioning how men treat women in your country has nothing to do with racism.

And you know it.

Sorry, i gave you a chance but you blew it.

You need as much help as Visine does. Good luck !

         I've Been Flushed From The Bathroom of Your Heart

        From the back door of your life, you swept me out dear
        In the bread line of your dreams, I lost my place
        At the table of your love, I got the brush off
        At the Indianapolis of your heart, I lost the race

        I've been washed down the sink of your conscience
        In the theater of your love, I lost my part
        And now you say, "You've got me out of your conscience"
        I've been flushed from the bathroom of your heart

        In the garbage disposal of you dreams, Ive been ground up dear
        On the river of your plans, I'm up the creek
        Up the elevator of your future, I've been shafted
        On the calendar of your events, I'm last week

        I've been washed down the sink of your conscience
        In the theater of your love, I lost my part
        And now you say, "You've got me out of your conscience"
        I've been flushed from the bathroom of your heart

          lottery post just had an add running at the top of the home page that had "paris" in it....

          ....so that counts ..... (of course only as a "coincidence") Wink

          couldn't be anything but,  because you know,  it's entirely "impossible" that God is personal,  and does these things Winkx2

            I have heard this said so often here, in one form or another: It's OK to comment, just respect others religion.

            So what is respectful?  Where is the middle ground?

            Say this is my post to this million dollar winner:   Complete coincidence...period. 

            Would that be too "strong?"

            Just a straight up vote, yes or no.  Don't need derogatory remarks.

            respect and equality isn't that hard to spot,  and it's "agenda-less"

            make an opposing opinion,  but don't even squeek over the line with underhanded tactics designed at shutting the conversation down,  and some lame post that is obvious it's only intent is start an ethics brawl.

            case in point,  stacks latest underhanded swipe about the thread going "way off topic"

            it is gone that way,  compared to it's original intent,  but the only reason stack the instigator stuck his head around the corner from the tree he hides behind is to make an attempt to shut it down,  merely because he doesn't like the content.

            stack has been involved personally in plenty other threads / conversations that went "off topic",  but the integrity-ain't never said squat diddly then.

            suddenly stack crowns himself the thread police.

            it's THOSE kinds of scenario's,  where guys like me step it up a notch to protect against the "stack's" of life.

            stack wasn't reminding us of brevity,  the poor wannabe thought he would pull another "stack" again

            there is complete difference between an "opposing view",  and trolling just to cause trouble.

            i sure know the difference (and the key players)

              i know for sure joker prays.

              he is praying right now  ......(for this thread to be over and done with)

              after getting highlighted red handed for lying multiple times,  and never handling stuff he sprays the board with,  joker is sweating bullets on his knee's right now, counting the minutes till the thread expires.

              after it does,  he will breathe a sigh of relief,  but only long enough to regroup and head for the "next opportunity" where he can take pot shots at Christians and Christianity again.

               

              perfectiming won't be the last "target" joker shoots and aims for.

              joker has now metamorphasized into a Christian gang banger.

              you know,  those guys filled with so much unfounded rage,  who shoot wildly,  hoping to hit their "target",  but accepting collateral damage as part of doing business.

              gang bangers don't even bother going to the shooting range to practice their "aim".

              they don't care,  their angst is what pulls the trigger anyway,  so if they hit their target,  cool.

                if they hit innocent bystanders, that's cool as well.

              when you don't have a conscience,  who cares about having perfect aim.

              joker,  LP's little angst driven "gang banger"

              trouble is.....there is a "gang enforcement" unit on the scene

              "one adam 12,  see the angst driven man shooting wildly into the crowd at the corrner of QP and PP streets"

              officer;  badge #777,  ....."roger that,  in pursuit,  with lights and siren blaring. Dupe Alert... will approach suspect,  and wrestle the *gun*  away" 

              i have a sworn duty to protect and serve,  when the jokers of the world fire off pot shots

                          "i am .........."meant to"       

              P.S.,  that RJoH  is a stand up guy.  thanks,  vision

                That's perfectly fine with me and if you criticize someone it's perfectly fine with me.

                Just don't whine when you get the same treatment.

                That's all I'm saying.

                And for some reason joker can't understand that.

                He wants to criticize everybody but if you criticize him he says that you're telling him what he's allowed to say or not say. Crazy

                Here is what I asked:  So what is respectful?  Where is the middle ground?

                Say this is my post to this million dollar winner:   Complete coincidence...period.

                From your answer above, I can't determine if that means yes, that is OK or if it means no, that you would respond back with "the same treatment."      I'm not even sure what you mean by the "same treatment" - those are three words - do you mean you would find fault with my post and post a three word response?

                  From your answer above, I can't tell if you approve of this or not?   An agenda can be extremely bias in either direction.  Some people post bible scriptures - that is an pro agenda in the extreme.  I am trying to find the middle ground where you would accept a response as respectful.  The point is that one can disagree and still be respectful - that is what I am trying to determine.

                  Here it is again with some variations, pick which one you would say is middle ground or not worthy of a "long" discussion:

                  A) "Complete coincidence...period."

                  B)"I don't want to force any religious beliefs on anyone, because I am an  agnostic."

                  C)"So God only answers mock prayers?"

                  D) "Wow, this guy is VERY arrogant to think "God" answered his lottery prayer."

                      That's not true at all. You were the one early on telling me NOT to make comments when someone on the forums mentions God. Don't you remember the countless times you kept saying something like......"Just let it be"......or something similar? If you want, to, you know I can go back and show you.

                      I don't care If someone disagrees with me, what I don't like is when someone other than the owner or moderator of this site dictates what I can't write...well too bad, it ain't gonna happen, so you better get used to it.

                      In this thread, all I wrote in the beginning was "100% coincidence"....so you're telling me I can't write this because it shows hate for believers?....ARE YOU FREAKING OUT OF YOUR MIND.....Here's the link below.

                      The link below shows RIDGE saying, without quoting anyone, that "he can't believe the hate from non-believers have for Christians, and the funny thing is that they're all gutless cowards"...Well, guess what PAL, we have a right to comment, and YOU'RE not the FREAKING POLICE.....GET OVER IT AND GO HAVE ANOTHER DRINK.

                      http://www.lotterypost.com/news/232109/2077025

                       

                      It wasn't enough that Ridge coundn't believe the SUPPOSED hate from non believers, but he also knows that they are GUTLESS COWARDS.

                      So you want to bring on the B.S. about name calling, maybe YOU SHOULD START WITH YOURSELF........!!!!!!!!

                       

                      Again, you write what you write, and I'll write what I want to write....GET IT?

                        He needs to start with himself before pointing fingers.

                        If I had the time and energy, I'd sift thru the countless pages and look for his disrespectful remarks in other threads.

                        What a joke, asking him.

                        It's like asking a rapist what he thinks about respect for women.

                          Hey Vision, it's your lucky day.

                          I was just watching Masterchef on HULU, and one guy who won the previous challenge got to choose which of the three themes the rest of the challengers had to cook for the next challenge.

                          The three themes were from Spain, France, and England. The guy chose France.

                          That's it, I'm converting today and moving to France...lol

                           

                          Skip to 21:05 in the video to see what he chose:

                            Here is what I asked:  So what is respectful?  Where is the middle ground?

                            Say this is my post to this million dollar winner:   Complete coincidence...period.

                            From your answer above, I can't determine if that means yes, that is OK or if it means no, that you would respond back with "the same treatment."      I'm not even sure what you mean by the "same treatment" - those are three words - do you mean you would find fault with my post and post a three word response?

                            Same treatment means I can criticize you guys the same way you criticize anybody who mentions God.

                            Joker doesn't think I should be able to do that.

                            He says that if I criticize him for what he says, I'm telling him what he can or can't say.

                            He wants free reign to criticize anybody he wants but he doesn't want anybody criticizing him. 

                             

                            If that is still unclear to you, I don't know how else to put it.

                              You can criticize me, just don't tell me what the content of my posts should consist of. Criticize specific details that you don't agree with. Accusing me of a being wife beater because I just happen to be from Iran is not criticism . Not only that, it has nothing to do with the subject, just a cheap shot.
