44. what difference would that make?
Edited on Mon Jul-11-11 07:22 PM by CreekDog
whatever he said, by your reasoning, wouldn't mean what it sounded like, but instead something different.

i prefer to believe, as i do, that he generally means what he says. i don't believe he's playing a word game here as you imply. though i don't like his position on this, i'm much more sympathetic to him if i know he's giving it to me straight.

but if he's wordsmithing in a way that i cannot fathom what his words mean, or i have to discount the obvious meaning of them --then that would suggest there's no point in listening to him at all, because it's obfuscation.

again, i don't actually believe that.
