I thought it was out of context and out of line in that thread (which was funny up until that point).
But, you're not a totally deluded rich housewife (like some peeps on here). We'd probably agree on more than you think we would, but internets makes extremes out of nuance. +1 to you though...sorry I was a jerk
I remember the thread but I don't remember what I said. It was the thread about the 7 year old that stole the car and then made news again when he beat up his grandmother because she wouldn't buy him fried chicken at walmart.
Its all good man. We probably do agree on a lot of things and I find it good to talk to people I don't agree with. Once upon a time (this was a long time ago) I was against gay marriage, not because I didn't like gays but because I didn't see a point to it if they weren't going to have kids. One night I met a flaming liberal guy at a bar and we both started talking about what our views were and why. When I could not come up with a good reason as to why two people who love each other could not marry, right then and there, I realized I had to rethink my views. The key thing is that we talked and didn't get in each others faces about it. Much more can be accomplished this way IMO.
