    Whatever you say, poopy pants.
    Whoever criticizes capitalism, while approving immigration, whose working class is its first victim, had better shut up. Whoever criticizes immigration, while remaining silent about capitalism, should do the same.

    Agreed. Some folks are less about the discussion than they are about "showing their ass", as the anthropologists would say. There are two members that I don't even respond to any longer, for that reason, with another one on the cusp.
