The political threads are wonderful, but people have forgotten how to debate in the proper manner...backing up statements with facts is something I haven't witnessed too much of here. You can't debate on emotions, it makes for a very boring debate, and a poor outcome.

I'm not a real dickhead...but I acted like one in high school.

What difference is there between Christianity, Islam or Judaism? They are all for the extortion of minds and people. Now how about that for an equal opportunity "hate"?

True, it just betrays a lack of skill rather than a lack of effort. Total unprovoked cheap shot from the guy railing against those who do less.
