BTW, if you'd like me to "stand down" just say so.

If you'd like to know where I'm coming from – knowledge of how the situation is being spun in conservative circles.

If you'd like to hear this in spanish, press 2 now.

That's not how I roll.

However, I will note that while I am very interested in your opinion on things (honest, no snark), if the choice is between your opinion of the monolithic, Internet, conservative echo chamber grafted on top of Chongo, and what Chongo himself has to say...

Well, one of these makes for a far better debate.

I guess the problem is I find his posts so predictable. This doesn't happen in a vacuum.

Yeah, good luck getting that. He's one of the most vague and evasive posters in the PL.

I dismiss he's seeking knowledge because his initial post is not a question, but a stereotypical joke. Only when called out does he 'clarify' his intent by way of loaded question.

Edit: I'm suffering from what I long ago pointed to as the reason these forums had become acrimonious. The same people, unchanging, in constant contact, will reach a point where one person's traits or habits can no longer be tolerated. Cue fireworks.

You're being unfair. Chongo has earned the "Most Improved" award on this lately, hands down.

I would actually agree with this.

Either way, I'm going to take your indirect advice and stand down. Feel free to taze me, if I forget myself in the moment.

I won't say this hasn't taken effort, but there are only two people here I can't see the good in. Everybody else I don't mind being stuck with in the biodome. Even some of the more frustrating members from the past, like Kevin and Abe.

Dakar the Fourth was a right ****, though.

Life taught me the hard way not to trust a woman in a Subaru.

From this day forward, I identify as Puerto Rican.

To further expand the stereotype, I will move into a house next to a junk yard run by an african american man and his son, keep a goat in my yard, and change my name to Julio.
