Once more into the breach,
Fine, post wherever you want. just don't be surprised when I am there to let the air out of your fallacious arguments and watch them flutter to earth
like the limp things that they are.
I usually am as eloquent as possible when dealing with tripe like this, but I am in point of fact tired of bringing a horse (in this case a jackass)
to water and not watching him drink. It is almost enough to make you want to push the stupid herbivore's head under until he stops twitching.
I have always thought that Scots were inherently fierce people, had to be to give the world a sport that is basically throwing a TELEPHONE POLE with
your bare hands. With Heroes like William Wallace and Robert The Bruce's blood running in your country I would expect better. SOMEHOW, you have
devolved from Woade-painted warriors who sent better armed and trained soldiers running in terror to a country that now lets convicted muslim bombers
go free. You might want to dig down to the bottom of the sporran hanging on your belt and search its contents, because I suspect that as a Nation your
balls fell out of your kilt a LONG time ago.
First I will deal with the actual fact, inconvenient for the emotionally based argument(?) that you keep attempting to push, that the statistical
probability, numerical odds (or however you choose to frame it) of ANYONE dying in one of these shootings is FAR LESS LIKELY than meeting your end due
to a bee sting, shark bite, or lightning bolt. Yes that is just inconvenient as hell for your supposed premise, but it is a FACT. I deal in FACTS, NOT
in emotionally manipulative hypothetical arguments. Protectionists like yourself live in a place called hypothetical-land, where you actually think
that what MIGHT happen, or but what if this happened, trumps actual, DOCUMENTED, HISTORICAL, VETTED FACT. In reality, where I live, believing that
something which is not true trumps fact is insanity.
NEXT, I will deal with the FACT that we DO have a Constitution, which recognizes the Divine Right of every man, woman, and child to defend the gift of
life they received from the Creator. To actually attempt to equate that right with a piece of CLOTHING is so insulting to someone who has seen his
brothers in arms DIE to defend those rights as to be almost beyond my ability to put it into words.
Almost, but not quite.
To refer to the document that founded my Country, the document that has recognized the Inalienable Rights of HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF MY COUNTRYMEN as
a "piece of paper", as though it were no different from an office memo, or a paper towel you received with a sandwich, arouses a FURY in me that I
almost cannot express. And then to claim that you meant no disrespect is a LIE. A BALD FACED, COWARDLY, DISHONORABLE LIE THAT I FULLY INTEND TO CALL
YOU OUT ON.
Just WHO in the HELL do you think you are? By what supposed moral superiority do you claim the authority to degrade and insult the founding Document
of my Country? By what superiority do you feel you can talk down to me or any other American who will WITHOUT APOLOGY state that these are our Rights
from our first breath, and we will NOT surrender them until our last? Just HOW do you justify speaking AT ALL concerning matters in my Country, as
though you could go to your neighbor down the street and give unwanted advice about how he should conduct his household?
Now where might such power come from? PLEASE tell me because I am curious how you justify insulting the Constitution, the Country it founded and by
extension, EVERY MAN AND WOMAN WHO SWORE THEIR SACRED OATH BY THAT "PIECE OF PAPER" AND EITHER DIDN'T COME HOME, OR ONLY PART OF THEM DID?
C'mon Tails, Get to tap-dancin'. I can't WAIT to hear your answer.
(Or maybe, next time you should just think before you open your damned mouth.)
