So do you want me to show how long you were on BWOT between the first time you whined about the list of questions until the last?

I think your "didn't give me time" excuse is a bit weak. Scratch...VERY WEAK.

But hey, some folks take longer at figuring out the obvious than others. It might have taken you six...eight minutes.

My position on those questions was written very clearly for you to understand; what part of "they shouldn't be answered" did you not comprehend.
I fully comprehended lack of um...ba... Sorry you didn't have them available to either write that instead of "they shouldn't be answered" or "It's overbroad, unnecessary and irrelevant." or "Bare doesn't give me time".

In debate people ask questions to others to glean positions, to clarify or to box people in to their position to confirm it is known to everyone that they obfuscate.

BDS is a mirage affecting rare cases of acute BS proper. The New England Journal of Psychiatry devoted a series of 10 articles to the diagnosis and treatment of acute BS proper. For those interested in further exploring the medical reach in this field, I would recommend Dallas University Hospital, where they are fully prepared for the necessary punctures, biopsy, and any surgical intervention using supersoft Charmin Q-tips on robots to clean the affected areas. Meanwhile, don't let the BDS mirage blind you, we all need to see and experience what flows from 1600 Constitution Ave. and Capitol Hill.

Good. Finally someone on the right who acknowledged that the phantom BDS is nothing more than a mirage, a distraction, a red herring.

Glad you cleared that up.

I think he's talking about acute VS proper, but I like the idea of acute BS proper when talking to bear... In fact it may be chronic BS proper in his case.

Don't believe everything you think

I don't know which is funniest, that I have this picture so quickly at hand or that it is in my BWOT Friends folder.

See the bold. I didn't say that you didn't give me enough time. Go back and read what I said, to be clear. I wrote "Bare doesn't give me time"--no more than a waitress gives me "more time" as in time being a commodity that can be transferred to another.

Once you posed those questions, I openly and unambiguously responded that I was not going to answer them and gave the reasons why.

I'm amazed that a couple of you are so distressed that I didn't take your bait.

Apparently no one else did either. Even the lefties.

It’s apparent that A hi percentage of republicans were not listening but that doesn’t change the facts that no democrats were listening. So why defend the democrats and cundem the republicans now

If you thank you can or you thank you can't your right

I note two have not even been on the board for those few days so that is not necessarily a point.

But go ahead with the rationalization if it makes you feel better. But as for the "unambiguously", was it the "doesn't give you time", "takes too much time to research", "they shouldn't be answered" or "It's overbroad, unnecessary and irrelevant"? There appears to be some ambiguity in your unambiguous answers.

Sorry, that was another question in a debate format. Damn.
