58. It's from the movie "Stripes"
Anyway, some folks will jump on something in a post and scream "bigot, anti-semite, wing-nut", etc. I happen to be a fairly sarcastic person, and my post was meant to be "tongue-in-cheek". It's much harder to comprehend sarcasm when reading what someone is writing, as opposed to having a face to face conversation. If you and I were speaking face to face, you would be able to detect the "tongue-in-cheekyness" of my post.

By your judgemental standards, I guess if I see a primer gray pick-up truck with Confederate Flags in the windows, nude girl mud-flaps, and a "Rush is Right" bumper sticker; and said; "Gee, what a frickin Redneck Bushbot", you would accuse me of being bigoted against pick-up drivers.

And no, I don't think "bullies should be the only one's in command", but you can't dismiss people's experiences, and how they shape their character. Some folks that are picked on, or bullied are going to respond in the correct way, deal with it, and become better leaders. Some are going to harbor deep-seated emotional problems because of it, and take it out on folks when given the chance.
