180. Then just state your case.
And try to keep the snark at a minimum.

I would love reading a post you wrote that actually did that.

I am so tired of DUers taking stabs at other groups of DUers because of their position on issues. You disagree, great...but do you have to make fun of people for it? Do you have to treat them as a monolithic entity and take swipes at them in their absence?

State their position if you must, and then knock it down. your post reads like an Us vs. Them, and that bothers me when such a scenario features members of this community.

Sorry I cursed....I sincerely apologize for that because I rarely do it, and I should practice what I preach.

Now, for the record, yes, I am against treating child offenders like adults. I recognize that our juvenile system needs to be retooled to handle violent offenders better so they do not repopulate into society too quickly after violence, but I still think that a kid committing a crime should have a separate judicial system as adults do.

But my disagreement on the issues is not what made me lash was the snark. Sorry about that, but I do stand behind the reasons why I acted out.
