Most would agree here you came in with an offensive tone. Now, how about we put it all behind us and focus on the topic at hand. Kapiche?

Good

Here's some good evidence on casting stones.

Aren't your own rules stating you don't *have* to reply?

Seems like you're happy to take it to that next level.

Offended I think they fit the term "Dumb and Dumber" are we?

Thanks, I'll get right on "cleaning up my act".

Honestly, I don't even know why I'm arguing here, with 70% voting for Dumb and Dumber, it really doesn't matter!
This is part of the problem: nobody is pumping ANY fist or threatening anything. All our administration does is roll over. The kill our diplomatic staff and we apologize. How soft is that?

Regarding your second inane comment: one can only hope.

This is great, differing opinion=offensive "tone".

Again, no one *has* to respond.

By calling me and many others rather offensive things for our beliefs, wouldn't one respond to defend that? Seems that you think us conservatives are offending you... Again, you don't have to respond either. Works both ways. So play nice or you may have a nice vacation if a mod sees fitting...

Now, let's all move on and play nice

Truck! My name is Opinyawn and it is my job to irritate Conservatives around here.... so relax a little and don't get in bickering contests over nothing! I'm trying to learn that lesson myself because in reality they never go anywhere and just turn our Conservative friends against you! Try to find areas of agreement and don't answer challenges or make them! You can always get in an argument around here easily enough! Getting some one to agree with you about an issue is the real trick! Try it, instead of getting into "I'm rubber and you're glue type arguments!"

All of a sudden, people ride by staring and no one wants any of it. I don't even have to engage in potentially dangerous activities because everyone assumes I'll win.

Or, as Ronald Reagan said, ""We know that peace is the condition under which mankind was meant to flourish. Yet peace does not exist of its own will. It depends on us, on our courage to build it and guard it and pass it on to future generations. George Washington's words may seem hard and cold today, but history has proven him right again and again. "To be prepared for war," he said, "is one of the most effective means of preserving peace." Well, to those who think strength provokes conflict, Will Rogers had his own answer. He said of the world heavyweight champion of his day: "I've never seen anyone insult Jack Dempsey."

Thus, the strategy that lead to the US winning the Cold War.

It makes perfect sense to me.
Bull pucky! The U.S. won the Cold War because the Soviet Union was inefficient and ran itself directly into the ground out of their half of the idiotic armament spending stupidity of the Cold War! Take a trip through Eastern Europe and you'll see why the Soviet Union collapsed! I went through an area where they pumped hot water from a water heating plant for miles and miles through a big insulated pipe to heat the nearest town's houses! Like Duh, Yorgi! How efficient!

If you want to give anyone credit is should be given to all Americans that were able to waste our resources on weapons creation longer than the Soviets could! The Soviet Union and the U.S. were two nations idiotically bleeding themselves to death preparing for nuclear war and the Soviet Union just passed out first, and then woke up as a country called Russia! Now we are the lead stupid nation bleeding itself with war! Duh!

So what you are saying that the U.S. should invade Mars and plant marijuana there and sell it to Muslims until their culture collapses and we are then dominant and have the resources to build yet another Death Star! Well, let me tell you how wrong you are for thinking that!
