I actually recall the exact beginning of the post word for word, which was directed at KV and me: "You guys are so predictible....." and then chiding us for not supporting the invasion. Hatterasguy actually started the thread. I remember it quite clearly. You can choose to believe me or not -- it doesn't really matter, and it was a long time ago.
Beg your pardon, I wasn't questioning the veracity of that particular reference. I even vaguely recall the exchange.
My comment was in relation to the assumption that it was Hattie who flushed a gnomer down the john, and Gomer's assumption as to why he got the toilet treatment.
I have seen no evidence. Gnomer went over there as a new guy and trashed the place. Brave, stouthearted child broke everybody's toys to show how big and rough and tough he was. The teacher over-reacted and expelled him. If it was a public school I'd find it upsetting and appeal to the school board. But it's a private nursery. Their rules. Tough.
I'm betting if Gnomer came back, expressed his strong political views with respect for other people's views, that nobody would have ratted him out. Other folks have far more leftist views than he has and they express themselves and they are retreads, too. I don't think anybody has threatened them with exposure and I think the Mods know and don't give a damn.
There are several leftists here whom I miss over there. Smart, erudite and reasonable and respectful. I was sorry as heck to see them banished or choose to leave in protest or provoke banishment as protest. We all know who I am referring to. They absoluetely completely and unequivocally disagree with me concerning Iraq. But I have never intentionally shown disrespect to them, nor they toward me. I miss their argument and I miss the addition of their keen minds to a pleasant community, "Over There." In all honesty, they are the reason that I come to this zoo. Okay, there are a few folks who've always been here and whose company I enjoy. I am glad to have met them through this medium.
But I sure as heck don't what the crude, disrepectful, juvenile behavior over there that a few folks wallow in over here. And guess what, when swine spray me with their filth, I throw it back at them measure for measure.
