Or, maybe not.

To quote Paul Krugman:
Since arms sales are at stake, where is the UPSIDE to the Saudi prince pissing off the U.S. by killing an American reporter and risking a very much desired arms deal exploding in his face? Explain that to me, please!

What I really don't appreciate is loony logic.

I've been in this "town'" 15 years longer than you have. PA will have to kick me out first before I leave -- which, of course, is real possibility -- but I'm just sayin' -- the Sheriff of this mighty fine town will have to do it.

Fine, Einstein. I still don't agree with your opinion. I'll try to remember your esteemed screen name. Was it your home?

Name calling violation? You decide.

I have more of a link to Einstein than anyone else on this Forum, but that's not the point.

Sarcasm is an Evil way to argue, and I see that.

Just because the Buckeyes are getting their butts handed to them at Purdue, no need to take it out on me.


I wish someone would call me Einstein, BTW.


Your Buckeyes will lose. #2 in the country.

Hmm...you might have something there. It was a nick given to me many moon ago by gambling friends who I often wowed at the track with my winning long shot selections -- which, come to think of it, actually enabled me to buy the comfortable home I live in with cash. But thanks for asking.

Now...what is your claim to fame, Freddie?

I post on a horse racing forum and don't discuss horse racing sometimes. My mistake.


I'm also an airborne, ranger trained killer, but we'll stick with the first one.

Ooh..a trained killer. I like that trade. You might come in handy when/if the civil war breaks out.

Let's keep in touch...

My current trailer park is fine.

I won a 65 inch flat screen TV a few years ago and had to give it away. I feared for my life.

But I thought you are a trained killer?

Well, Longshot King, there's as much chance of that as the second coming.
21st century Americans are too fond of their couches to wage war.
