Well now I regret chatting with you in a sincere honest way. I should do as you do and insult and taunt.

As to your belief, since you pulled a crappy stunt on me, do not bother me until you mature.
Nothing I said was intended to insult or taunt.

My comments were intended to inform you of my position and your place.

And whether or not you intend to respond to any future posts of mine will have no effect in my choice to do so.

Next you will claim that when you hit women, you had no intentions to hurt them.

I do accept the apology.

What would you want of me as it relates to your story?

My oldest son is 60.

I have male stepchildren. One Bryan is a multimillionaire who once voted for Democrats but has donated a hell of a lot of money to reelect Trump he told me recently. This stepson is in his 40s now. (Brian is 46)

I put in time raising just good sons and daughters. I am proud of all including the step children.
Thank you, Robertinfremont. What would I want of you? I also apologized for disrespecting you, as far as comments I made about your age.
The speed and number of your replies indicates you are fully capable of staying informed of current events and "holding your own", in this forum.

My point in sharing details of my past is that I ardently believe I am a court defined, "reasonable person". My life experience and memory for detail give me the discernment to consider the opinions and arguments of "both sides".
I never expect anyone to take my word, on anything. This is why my posts are well documented, supported by links.
I mainly disagree with you because of the sheer volume of what you post that is contrary to the information that shapes my opinions and conclusions. I am not alone, judging by the reactions of other posters, to your posts.

Please consider that, when I am wrong, I will quickly admit it. I sincerely appreciated your acceptance of my apology.

Still bombarding topics with enlarged fonts I see.

What are your points?

For instance when Abe Lincoln hung 38 native tribesmen, what do you think about that?

When Tim McVeigh was killed, was that a problem for you?
Not (very recently) "bombarding", cutting, pasting, bolding a line or two, for emphasis.

I don't believe capital punishment is a deterrent, or that government should conduct revenge killings.
NY gets along fine with no death penalty, Texas executes people and struggles with outsized violent crime, per capita, compared to NY.
Europe seems none the worse after abolishing executions.

Lincoln wrongly failed to stop the executions you documented. Despite McVeigh's conviction of the murders of 168, including children
in a day care center located in the building he targeted for bombing, I object to executing him, even more so because he encouraged it.

My point about "deep state" plotting is that if you believe in it, or in Trump's accusations, how can you believe it is a system to be trusted with the process of determining guilt and meting out irrevocable punishment?

Republican advanced CT scenarios that have resulted in no supporting facts validating them.:

Thank you very much and I respect such posts.

I am pleased to meet an equal.

Are you calling me far right or saying I should stick to fighting far right Canadians?
No, you appear to be a Socialist who enjoys stirring the pot with Americans from both major parties.

I shall post more of our Values

Starting with this one


Ours is a very human cause for very humane goals.

This Party, its good people, and its unquestionable devotion to freedom, will not fulfill the purposes of this campaign which we launch here now until our cause has won the day, inspired the world, and shown the way to a tomorrow worthy of all our yesteryears.

I think both the Republicans and the Democrats started the slow journey away from any form of values in the 70s, and they now have almost none.

They both claim to have some, but they're hollow and nearly meaningless shells of their former selves, hiding the ravening beasts of personal power and wealth in their decaying corpses.
Occasionally a principled person with values will try to wade against the tide, but all but a few get dragged under.

I do not beat my breasts and yell like Tarzan over Capital punishment.

I end up involved in this kind of thinking only due to protests.

Last evening on my computer I caught the FBI files on Prime Video. I have larger TVs here in the house but find here on the computer with my large screen, I can change from prime to this forum plus one other forum rapidly.

Anyway this notion we must not take the life of a murdering human., was just now discussed with my 60 year old son. He said stop fooling around and execute them fast. I said innocents have been executed. He said the cure it to execute the false witness.

So on and on. Davis killed Polly Klass of Petaluma CA when she was 14. CA sentenced him to death in the 1990s. That man is still living on Death Row.

I have played chess with some of the San Quentin inmates where he is held and life there is stark and not pleasant. So should he be released or what would you want
done with the brutal killer of a teen kid?

I want to do something I understand will be called totally silly, but to make a valuable point.

We enter the produce section of the grocery store. We notice a bundle of orange carrots. The bundle is all we can find anywhere.

In the bundle are 2 carrots that are both flawed yet we can eat them and not get sick.

The rest of the carrots are not nutritious. We decide we will pick one of the two carrots left over to eat one of them.

We have to vote for the carrots. We have not a way to pick from the worst of the lot.

The worst of the lot may well be super humans. For reasons probably not of their own fault, we are not about to eat them.

We stick to the two major carrots. And after eating one of the two, we proceed to yell like we were forced.

That is silly don't you think? If you get the analogy, you are a wise person.

I think you're trying to make an analogy to the two main political parties.
And their effective duopoly on who gets to be in power.

I'm not convinced that only those two carrots are nutritious.

I also included your own point. That the public perception of the remaining carrots is they are not worth eating.

Actually I can't think of a solitary thing Trump has done that is different than the above OP values. As to back when he was still a Democrat, reports are he was not the clean cut guy. Changing to being a Republicans is like a man out camping taking a hot shower. It cleans you off. Trump got cleaner as a Republican.
Your opinion about more than half the people in your country is noted.

You are projecting!

One unaccountable, secretive, criminal suspect is about to pack the court, for the fifth time!

So far, your entire premise is false. Check out the constitution sometime. Doing what is spelled out as duty is not "packing" I am not sure if you are making it up or merely parroting a cnn moron.

CNN's Toobin: Democrats are 'wimps' who won't 'have the guts' to add Supreme Court seats

Who cares who puts them forth as long as the scotus does their constitutional job and stops making up stuff to the detriment of their institution?

You do know that Garland and Kav historically ruled on cases the same way to the tune of 93 percent? Hardly a reason to throw a tantrum when an oppositional party performs their duty.

You must be outraged at the hundreds of millions that both current candidates have received.
