114. Let's just say I have better things to do...
... than engage in a pointless pissing match with you.

I stated above that I didn't think that this could be attributed to Kerry's views 100%. However, since Rich did NOT address Kerry in the subject line, and I am not a mind reader (unlike you, I assume), I did not believe that it necessarily was all about KERRY and instead was about a POV advanced by the DLC. If it WAS supposed to be a veiled attack on Kerry, I think I stated earlier in this thread that I didn't agree with such a viewpoint.

Additionally, there are LOTS of things that get posted in GD2K4 that don't directly deal with the election. I see a thread that looks to me like it might be interesting, I click on it, and possibly post my thoughts.

I mean, Jesus H. Christ, sangha -- if I'm offending you so much for daring to discuss such subjects as militarism and its broader effects on society and international relations, I'm sure as hell not going to apologize for it. And if my audacity to defy the guidelines you want to set for me gets your knickers all twisted in a knot, I know it won't affect my ability to sleep at night.

IOW, bugger off.
