Well, that was 12 minutes of my life wasted. That clip was just 11:39 of accusations, taunts, opinions, conclusions and lies, with no substance to back any of it up. You should have let it die over in the old thread. One can't even respond to this Bowman character, other than to say, after each statement that he is just wrong--but, since he offers nothing to back up his wild rhetoric, it is not possible to show why he is so wrong. What a waste of 12 minutes. Thank you Hev, you have confirmed my opinion of you.

I know, but she revived it. It was a waste of time in the old thread, too. But I let it go because I had planned to spawn this new thread when the activity died down and I had the time.

I see..I didn't realise you were the arbiter of what's a waste of time. My mistake.

Well, you didn't have to watch it at all. But I'm always impressed when you torture yourself like that. By the way what was your opinion of me?

What a stupid thing to post! Of course I am the arbiter of what is a waste of time for me! Who else would it be? You? Are you trying to insult me because I find that link to be a waste of time? Pffft. I thought you were better than that.

You really should learn not to ask questions when you really don't want to hear the answer. Besides, you likely know the answer anyway.

I have no idea. I have different political ideas to you, but I don't think I've been particularly mean to you. You do seem to get very exasperated with me. So now is your chance to be straight and say what you think.

Why is it always about you? You chose to close your thread when I posted that speech. You decided it was not a topic worthy of discussion. Now you are being insulting to me while accusing me of trying to insult you.

Trust me, if I were insulting you, you would know about it.

Well, in the past, you have said that you no longer wanted to deal with me because of the way I have answered your posts; you have made claims that I have shown to be untrue and you have simply ignored my proof; and you have demanded an apology from me, accusing me of treating you badly, all the while referring to someone else's post, but when I pointed that out, you simply failed to respond. I don't have the time or inclination to look up and link to the posts of the incidents I have cited--I have done so in the past and gotten no response from you.

My opinion of you? Since you have asked, I think you are a fuzzy thinking ideologue who has put your political position above reason, and assumes too quickly that others do the same, thus allowing you to dismiss or ignore those opinions with which you disagree.

Trust me, if I were insulting you, you would know about it.

But I notice you did not cite the very thing that you posted and which I called stupid. Anybody reading your post might be left with the impression that I falsely accused you of posting something stupid, out of the blue. I repeat, it was rather stupid to call me the "the arbiter of what's a waste of time", when all I was saying was that I found it to be a waste of my time. Now, you seem to be trying to pick a fight with me, but I am not interested.

I chose to close that thread, as I posted last week, when I had time to do it this past weekend. This was the first I had time and that there was a lull (your post notwithstanding).

I've been trying to lose weight. Do you think that ROTFL could really help me get some of MAO?
