Spelling is being thrown out,of Magnet schools in L.A. My nine year old grand daughter told me,in her school, they don't teach spelling,because "there are other combinations of letters to make the same sound,and why would you want a silent letter"? I told her,"So what,sew on the button,and then sow seeds." Mad Mack is ahead of his time.

Actually it was "MAD MAX" so the English taught in public schools in the past wasn't so good either.

In reality however, Mad Max and his horde of illiteracy is riding the black horse of liberal politics so ... you now reap what you have sewn my friend. Enjoy.

MERRY CHRISTMAS!

LWW, I don't think Drop1 was refering to the character "Mad Max," but was refering to one of our posters on here.
Spelling is much easier to teach than common sense, tolerance, and basic manners.
I think you owe an apology to Drop1 not only for correcting him, but for indicating he is responsible for our current state of public education. You and I are guilty also! Other than spouting your opinions on websites that don't matter, voting in elections, and telling your wife to join the PTA, what have you done to improve the situation?
You speak about being civil on here, yet any time someone posts on here you make it a political issue of libs vs conservatives. Maybe you should take part of the responsibilty and blame yourself. And on another thread you very recently offered your assistance of "enlightenment" to someone....for some reason I just don't see you as anyone's savior.

What have I done?

-Serve my country in the US Army Reserves.
-Campaign religiously for causes I believe in.
-Work local shelters on holidays.
-Teach an adult ed class.
-Work on Neighbiorhood Watch Citizen Patrols in high crime areas.
-Drive the "GET OUT THE VOTE" bus.

among other things. I don't talk about them much because they are, IMHO, the duties of any citizen ... but you asked.

That's great, but I suspect that many of us on here have done that much and much more, liberals and conservatives alike. You miss the point of my post. It was not really about you and what you have done or not done. It's about attacking a specific individual or specific group for our education problems when there is plenty of blame to go around. Drop1 was just sharing information and I suspect he was not happy with the info he was sharing. And your response? You can't wait to attack him. Again, I think you owe Drop1 an apology! Like you always say on here...be a man and admit when you are wrong! And if you can't, I'll assume that's one difference between those who served active duty every day all day long vs 1 weekend/month and 2 weeks/year!

I'm going to go one better.

I'm going to admit that I am wrong in acting like a shiite head to certain individuals, and yes I got your point but wasn't sure you did.

You only have seen a single side to this.

houndo and his gang baited this fight for 2 years. I took the bait, and that was a personal weakness of mine, and then I walked away from it.

They weren't happy with that. They then attempted a character assassination of me on 2 different forums.

SONoma was pulled in or jumped in with vicious and juvenile personal attacks, and yes he knows that. I walked away from that as well.

Then, during the Christmas Season they followed me to another forum with malice and forethought to trash it as they have trashed this one.

At that point the sarge took the advice of Popeye ... "Enough is enough and enough is too damned much!"

So, after being the gentleman and turning the other cheek I finally decided that if they want a fight they have one and anyone who wants onboard with them is welcome just so I know where everyone stands.

Is that wrong of me? Probably. Will I have to answer for it some day? Probably. I would rather answer for that than answer for why I stood by and did nothing.

Maybe you care, maybe you don't. It really doesn't matter to me right now, and I mean you no disrespect.

I have watched these people bully everyone who doesn't agree with them and I have always been the broad shouldered lightning rod type, where if you mess with my bloods or my buds you better be ready go Rocky on me because once I reach a certain point I'll bring it without mercy.

Is that wrong? Maybe. I'm human. I can admit it.

If these guys want peace all they have to do is want peace.

<font color="blue"> </font color> OK! History does help. But in the final analysis what we have here has been made personal and is now a vendetta?
To be honest, I come on here for fun and entertainment. Not for an education from either you or Gayle (like her new post about Helen Thomas and other ramblings?) Some on here may be zealous, but at least they post with a sense of humor. However, some of you really inflame others....and they exist on both sides (Gayle &amp; LWW). Wolfie, SONoma, and I disagree almost always. But if I decide I really dislike Wolfdancer for some personal reason, I'll let him know. And if he likes, he can take it up with me in person (I hear he is much older than me so I might have a chance). Go Rocky in person...it's more effective! Trying to go Rocky on a website by posting is not very effective. And you got trashed on a website? Big deal! Did you lose your job? Did your wife leave you for SONoma when she found out? Bullies only pick on cowards repeatedly. I'm glad you are now "standing up!" But you really don't need "revenge" and it just makes you look little.

Bash, Bash, Bash. Have at it. I don't harp on you, or include references to you in my posts, constantly, as you like to do, to me.

Helen Thomas happens to be a Washington D.C. icon, who is a hero to many people who value a free press, and a woman who has relentlessly asked the questions that the administration's lap dogs in that press room have been too intimidated by this administration to ask.

Dana Perino was way out of line, IMO, and it seems to me that most people would agree that someone too young, (or young and dumb) to even know what the Cuban Missile Crises WAS, ought to show some respect to an eighty-six year old icon of the press who is considered the First Lady of the White House Press Room.

You like to associate yourself with those posters here who you deem to be reasonable people, when in reality, you've been on a bash festival against me since the start.

If you can't handle a different opinion, that's your problem. Don't try to make your issues, my issues. I don't sneak around trying to get people booted off this forum, just because I don't agree with their opinions, nor do I harp away trashing the same people over and over again, non stop, like you do. I'm not interested in educating you, or anyone else, for that matter. Go your own way.

When I don't like someone's posting style, I ignore their posts. Try it sometime, it works, and it's better for the forum in general, than bashing the same people, over and over, just because you have a different opinion.

DUH!

Funny how the very people who whine all the time about vitriolic posts, and a poor mood on this forum, are the worst offenders.

It's a tactic often employed by those who live in glass houses, and people who always seek a scapegoat, because they themselves are certainly never the problem.

It probably starts as a defense mechanism in childhood, and they never grow out of it.

You still miss me bro. I hate trolls. When this is done they will know not to troll. I really don't care what they think about me, but I wish I could share some PM's. A few people have posted here. In unison they are thanking me for putting the trolls in their place.

This forum is starting to see a few more people post than it used to. I don't think it's because of me, I think it's because they are enjoying watching the tyrants fall.

The thing with them is they HAVE to hate. It's not me, if I were never here they would still hate. Just probably a smaller amount each to a larger number of people.

What I take joy in is feeling the heat from their posts as they are devoured in their own acidic venom. They can't intimidate me, thay can't scare me, they can't bully me, and they admittedly can't outsmart me. When the bully no longer can bully they implode.

Enjoy.

never doubt that houndo can take things to a new low.

Now big boy, all 6-3 7,492 pounds or whatever you brag about and then imply violence on the Dawg for far less a crack ... if we ever meet in person I'd like you to ask me about that in person, or my wife. I'm confident either could make short work of you.

<font color="blue"> </font color> Ms. Gayle....I really wasn't "bashing" you. Several times now you have claimed that I do so. At times I have said you overreacted to what I stated and vice versa. I'm glad you can come on here and state your opinions. There is a difference between bashing someone and just "picking at" someone. I've bashed LWW much more than you on here and he's not whining. Maybe I should have used more of the "grin" ( /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif ) graphics for you.
Anyway, since you seem to think I can't post without using your name....or that I'm infatuated with you somehow (for those that know me that's a freakin joke), and you are always under the impression that I have victimized you in some way or some how, from this point on I will never mention your name and will never comment specifically to any of your posts. And while I hope to someday meet up with some of the folks on here at a billiard event, I can assure you I will not take 2 steps out of my way to meet or speak with you. Keep on flattering yourself....I don't need you...not even for toilet paper. I have tried to be civil to everyone on here. We all fuss at LWW but the truth of the matter is that you are the least civil. You just do it in a more deceptive manner. You fool a few, but not most. Many others read here, but never post. I will continue to post, but as others ignore LWW, I will ignore you....not because of your opinions but because you have made it personal.
Fran was right on the money about you!!!! I just disagreed with her comments on how to deal with the situation. I defended your right to give your opinions on here without someone threatening to shut down the board. For me anyway, you no longer have any opinions I am the least bit interested in. Not because of the opinions, but the person providing the opinion.
And....I freakin know who Helen Thomas is....and I've never liked her!! Thanks, but I am fairly well educated, after all, I did go to school in your neck of the woods. You claim you aren't trying to educate anyone, yet you proceed to tell me who various people and entities are....

And are you freakin senile?....I never tried to get anyone censored from this site, etc. Go back and re-read these posts. I think you have confused me with others. But, it really doesn't matter. LWW is right...you are a moonbat!

Anyway...adios old girl!!

"debate openly and honestly."

When are you going to start?

As the new year is upon us, I think an appropriate resolution for you, Gayle, would be to become better informed, and not just further propagandized.
I can give you a reading list.
Letting the light of truth into your tortured soul will enhance your happiness.
That is why Conservatives consistently poll at higher happiness numbers than Libs.

Do it for us who must suffer your delusional rants.

Let the hate drain out of you Gayle.
