    I have been using your debate technique against you.
    I think I was pretty good at it, what do you think?

    Based on previous political threads you have started, that is an outright lie. It was created to praise liberalism and we aren't letting you get away with it

    "Oh what a tangled web we weave when we first try to deceive"

    isn't it amazing Slim... You and I can 'member things but the young bucks can't!?

    is it because the try to deceive us?

    remember what gran (full blooded Scot) told me when she caught me in my first lie. " Pip .. more more you lie, the more lies you have to tell, the less you can remember of your previous lies. "

    I have kept that in my heart since then... and by mid 20's I sat back reminiscing about that fine lady .. and I was like "DAMN" I finally caught on.

    She lived to 93 years before ALZ took her. I really miss her and Gramps wisdom... they had seen all the tough times. And they came through them with flying colors.

And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here.”

    For we must consider that we shall be as a city upon a hill. The eyes of all people are upon us. So that if we shall deal falsely with our God in this work we have undertaken, and so cause Him to withdraw His present help from us, we shall be made a story and a by-word through the world.”

    Therefore, this is the ultimate aim of American exceptionalism.

    Here is the very first post. If you actually care to read it you will see it mentions Ronald Reagan, probably the most conservative President in modern history and his vision of the US.
    SalesServiceGuy was NOT lying.
