Sounds like a good idea.
It'll be a good way to isolate and then further rivalries for our entertainment.
There'd have to be ground rules as far as allowing direct and flagrant insults and name calling of all sorts... I just don't want to have to make another screen name... This being numero 6 I believe.
Count me in.

Well that's a given.
Pretty sure Glass will give it a go.
I'm sure Tex is in.
Will'll probably opt out as we'll discuss his fake mammary glands.
Bdgee will claim he's too mature for such things.. We know he's lying.

Ok so just a recap:
Bdgee calls you a moron after one of your many moronic statements and you retaliate by stumbling through as many highschool insults as you can remember.
All the while claiming you wish this to go no further.
Do us all a favor and admit that what you really want is acceptance.
You wish to better Bdgee in these lop sided battles because you see him as better than yourself.
You veiw him as sort of a father figure.
It's just best you admit this and spare yourself the many years humiliation you are about to enter. [/QB]

Please relentless. If your a Bgeesus fanboy then just say so but do not say he does not flame, name call, say moronic statements (like the first one of this thread), HS insults etc. Yet you only say me and others do it. As far as I'm concerned i called him on the fact that he throws accusations at people about name calling, lies, insults etc. when he is the one who does it most of the time. Yet you can't admit that because your a fanboy of his? [Roll Eyes] That to me is not a moronic statement that I said to him. Moronic is being a moron in the first place because you don't like someone's views like Andrew's and then calling everyone a moron for not agreeing with you or your views.

As for me wanting this to not go further? Sorry, I don't recall me saying that in this thread. Perhaps your one of the people Bgeesus means when he says about your "lies". If i wanted this to stop going further I would simply stop posting in this thread. No such thing. [Razz]

Acceptance? Please. I have a life and it's not spending it in this forum. I merely post in off topic when bored and for entertainment. If you think I want acceptance from a bunch of people I do not know personally then your a legend in your own mind. At the end of the day when i sign off the computer and this forum, you are the furthest from my mind in importance. I don't need acceptance from others because I accept myself. I don't need my ego stroked like others do.

Bgeesus as father figure? LOL I see him as a mentally ill lonely bitter conspiracy laden math professor who probably got picked on all his life and doesn't have a social personal life so he comes here to vent out his frustrations on those same right wingers who picked on him.

For me to see anyone as a father figure etc. I would have to like them and/or respect them and trust me I don't with Bgeesus. I respect others here who do not attack people for different views such as Glass, Tex, Bigfoot, Natural Resources etc. Those are the people i respect. Not people like you and Bgeesus who need to get off your high horses and think I give a sh*t about you lol

I see him as better then me? lol again please... I don't see a so called math professor with no social life who rants and raves on political boards on people who disagree with him as any better then anyone else much less better then me...

humiliation? I live a good life and that is all that matters to me... Bgeesus and his words are a pimple on this planet's azz and don't really mean anything to me for me to care or feel humiliated.This is just to pass the time for when I am on the computer and there is nothing much to do after I am done with other things like stock researching, watching Youtube etc.

So for you to say such things is moronic in itself. I never got off topic on this thread because I agreed with the original view, just didn't agree on how it was said and how it escalated from there. There is nothing for me to add to his view because I am not a Right Winger on the opposite end of his opinion/view/fact of this thread's original topic.

Anyways Life goes on when this computer signs off on any given day and this forum & it's characters doesn't exist to me when the computer is not on. [Smile]

Bla bla bla...
I'm not even going to read your blather.
The first line you pecked out says you didn't read mine:
quote:
Please relentless. If your a Bgeesus fanboy then just say so but do not say he does not flame, name call, say moronic statements
I clearly said he called you a moron.
Or some other term... meaning..
Moron.
Not sure how he came to such a conclusion?
You seem keenly attuned to reality as stated above.

Like us to care?
Mach you have proven beyond doubt that "like" is a pale comparison to your infatuation with us.
You keep coming back.
You see a level you wish to attain.
You are attempting to attain that level by confrontation.
Witlessly you hope your true desire goes unnoticed.
Run along.

Infatuation with you? And I'm told I have a ego lol I come on this site more for stock trading purposes then to "infatuate" with you. The off topic section is for what you should of read in my blather that you didn't:

"Please. I have a life and it's not spending it in this forum. I merely post in off topic when bored and for entertainment. If you think I want acceptance from a bunch of people I do not know personally then your a legend in your own mind.

"This is just to pass the time for when I am on the computer and there is nothing much to do after I am done with other things like stock researching, watching Youtube etc."

But if my presence bothers you that much your welcomed to "run along".

Take a step back to the 70's. Then read this. How far have we failed to move forward? And from another context you could go another direction. However... some signals touch the same spots imo.

Rice Says Iran 'Lying' About Nukes Ahead of Talks With Skeptical Putin


Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice speaks to the Council on Foreign Relations at the Organization of American States, Tuesday, Oct. 9, 2007, in Washington. (AP Photo/Evan Vucci)
10-11-2007 7:58 PM
By MATTHEW LEE, Associated Press Writer

SHANNON, Ireland (Associated Press) -- Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice on Thursday accused Iran of "lying" about the aim of its nuclear program, saying there's no doubt Tehran wants the capability to produce nuclear weapons and has deceived the U.N.'s atomic watchdog about its intentions.

"There is an Iranian history of obfuscation and, indeed, lying to the IAEA," she said, referring to the International Atomic Energy Agency.

"There is a history of Iran not answering important questions about what is going on and there is Iran pursuing nuclear technologies that can lead to nuclear weapons-grade material," Rice told reporters aboard her plane as she headed to Moscow.

U.S. officials have long accused Iran of trying to develop nuclear weapons behind the facade of a civil atomic energy program, charges that Tehran denies. But Rice's strong words, including the blunt reference to Iranian "lying," come at a critical time in dealing with the matter.

The United States is trying to win Russian support for new U.N. sanctions against Iran but has faced sharp resistance from Moscow, which has nuclear cooperation agreements with Tehran and argues the country should be given more time to come clean on its programs.

Russian President Vladimir Putin said this week there is no proof Tehran is trying to build the bomb. Rice and Defense Secretary Robert Gates are scheduled to see him in Moscow on Friday.

Washington has been pressing for more sanctions since earlier this year.

But last month, the five permanent members of the U.N. Security Council _ Britain, China, France the United States and Russia _ and Germany agreed with the support of the European Union to hold off on a new sanctions resolution until November to allow negotiations with Iran to continue.

If no progress is made on two separate tracks _ talks with E.U. foreign policy chief Javier Solana on an offer of assistance in exchange for a suspension in Iran's nuclear program and discussions with IAEA on its past activities _ they are to bring the resolution to a vote.

It remains unclear, though, if Russia and China, which also opposes sanctions, will support it.

Even as work on the proposed resolution is to continue at an Oct. 17 meeting of senior diplomats in Europe, Putin said Wednesday that Russia was not convinced Iran is trying to create nuclear weapons.

His comments came after talks with French President Nicolas Sarkozy, whose government is firmly behind the U.S. sanctions drive, and appeared to deal a new blow to efforts to forge a consensus.

"We have no objective data that Iran is seeking to make atomic weapons," Putin said. "Therefore, we proceed from the assumption that Iran has no such plans."

Rice, however, stressed that Russia had signed on to the Sept. 28 agreement to consider new sanctions in November and said she did not "expect that there is any deviation from that course at this point" from the Russian side.

She also noted that Russia had in the past demonstrated its concern about Iran's program by limiting its cooperation to prevent Tehran from acquiring a full nuclear fuel cycle that could be used to produce weapons-grade material.

"That concern was seen very clearly in Russia's offer to Iran to enrich and reprocess in a joint venture and to bring back any spent fuel so that the fuel cycle wouldn't be available to Iran," she said. "I think there is a reason for that and that is suspicion about Iran's intentions."

Rice has a whale of a lot of catching up to do before her credibility is swimming on the surface.

She was one of the most outspoken proponents of Saddam being involved in 911 and invading Iraq because of Saddam's non-existent nuclear arsenal. I believe she knew it was all lies at the time. She certainly had the appropriate intelligence to know the facts, so why did she tell us falsehoods? Does she tell truths now?

Claimed he didn't, but everyone knew he craved to be like glass....

Couldn't reach those heights, so he drove the rest of us batty trying to bring glass down to his level.

Like to drove poor glass to cussin at times.

Still, it was fun watchin him disintegrate to babble in the end. That's mean of me to be like that, but he earned such effection (not affection) over months of time.

consider that Iraq currently trades crude oil for gasoline and then ask yourself why they are skipping the obvious step of building oil refineries and going straight to nucular par instead...

they are not doing it for peaceful purposes...

There isn't some member of this administration, currently or no longer in position, that I feel can be trusted with telling the truth. Indeed, when some statement comes out of this bunch, I feel I am obliged to assume it is a bald faced lie.....there has been a long history.

I agree. And as Iran and others continue to build and fortify themselves we are left seeking UN resolutions to attempt to curtail inevitable events imop. There is so much left unsaid and unchallenged. I have my own opinions of good óle outgoing Bush and how his delays in dealing with Iraq only lead to golden opportunities Today for others to take advantage. Iran is almost running unchecked ~ well is unchecked imo ~ and now we are left swinging a mallet without the gavel.

hahahaha

Look it up. I ain't the first to so use it.

Yep, that buffoon Clements was a good approximation of what dubya would perfect.

And check this out. As governor he appointed Bum Bright to the A&M Board at the same time as he was sitting on the SMU Board. One of his close buddies and business partners was at that same time on slipped onto TCU Board sort of politically. I don't recall the tie, but there was also representation at Texas Tech.

Within a couple of years, those three schools all were under serious investigation by the NCAA for football and baskeball violations. (It should also be noted that, concurrently, their "group" bought the Dallas Cowboys from Murchinson and brought on the worst times for that team.) All three schools were caught red handed paying not small amounts to football players and basketball players and warned to cease, but the "group" continued to play republican party games and used the athletic programs of the schools as toys and favor for the party, which became the money source for player generosity. They were caught again and all were punished, SMU actually getting the kiss of death penalty. THAT is what actually broke the old Southwest Conference. It had been the strongest of all the football conferences since the early 60s and within five years of being used as a political favor by the "group" it was reduced to a scandal with several of its schools having hardly enough scholarships (due to NCAA penalties) to field teams that could compete at all.

What that all proves is, if you don't finish high school and by hook or crook manage to come into ownership of one of the biggest trucking companies in the world and get to be fabulously wealthy, you tharby can become a republican power broker and get to be smart enough to be the Chairman of the A&M Board and order all them thar ed-jew-katted smart-mouth liberal professors around and then get high on imported whiskey and brag about it to the "groups" in their private box at Texas Stadium.

i never intended to do that...

i was trying to tell him in no uncertain terms that he was screwing up really badly...

i mean he posted some screwed up stuff..

topics like:
Why does the Democratic party support genocide! (post #0) Off-Topic Post, Non Stock Talk July 17, 2006


the premise of my "threat" was that he would not be viewed kindly by his boss if he was to bring that topic to his job...
it was hypothetical just like his thread...

I don't doubt *any* of that college/sports stuff. Can't say I know it's true...but sure wouldn't surprise me.

Clements *was* a nut, by any appreciable measure...Bush didn't hit *his* stride until he stole the Prez

effection ain't a word: not in my 1947 unabridged, my first etymology source, nor in Webster's online...

not saying it's not been used... but is a nonsense word, at least in parallel to affect ===> affection.

The more I think about it, though...the more I like it.

kinda like a pitcher's efficiency, or maybe a pol's delivery:

Wow! Smith's effection ratio on these deals is through the roof!

I guess, because affection is a word, and widely understood, then effection should also be a word. Might even help folks distinuish between affect and effect.

and yeah, his brother (JW) was OK in my book...

Lol, I don't know that I would have hit him with the Pope or the Bishop or whatever [Razz]
i never intended to do that...

i was trying to tell him in no uncertain terms that he was screwing up really badly...

i mean he posted some screwed up stuff..

topics like:
Why does the Democratic party support genocide! (post #0) Off-Topic Post, Non Stock Talk July 17, 2006


the premise of my "threat" was that he would not be viewed kindly by his boss if he was to bring that topic to his job...
it was hypothetical just like his thread...

comprendo...

shoot--I wish they'd come back and we could all be friendly. [Cool]

They weren't intending to be friendly, I don't think, Tex. We all gave them every chance to be, but they had predesigned a religious agenda to press and it was like they intended to be unfriendly. In a way is is too bad, because they offered a different sort of bent on religious stuff than some of the ones that come here and demand we all become Jesus freeks. I'd have been happy to have them stay and settle into the faction for their point of view. I am a big advocate of wide and robust but honest advocacy of whatever. Sadly, I suspect they started out believing they were going to show us all the error of our ways and when it became clear we were mostly going to keep on just as we each already did, they took offense, as if we had challenged them.

"Might even help folks distinuish between affect and effect."

I have to disagree, because I feel certain that almost all of the confusion is more due to laziness and simple spelling errors than it is a use of the wrong word. Lots of folks don't think they differ at all or never though about it even one time in their life, maybe hearing them the same and only believing there is one word.
