    But, if you want to be different, go ahead.
    I don't mind being provoked to think by someone qualified to do the provoking.

    You aren't.

    Of course not. Given all those subversive thoughts I have that you don't want to listen to.

    I bet you watch a lot of Fox.

    Perhaps the title to this thread should be "Why do Republican get so upset"?

    The Republicans, having failed abysmally to attract more than rednecks to their cause, seem determined to dig in.

    http://www.nytimes.com/2012/11/12/us...=politics&_r=0

    Obama will have none of that. The Pugs will get one chance to be seen as having a faint concern for their country or Obama will enlist average Americans to demolish them.

    There is only so much intransigence the ordinary American will take from these neanderthals.

    A sensible strategy for the 2014 and 2016 elections (already, FFS, underway - how do you ever get anything done?) is to cast the GOP as pre-determined, and determined, losers.

    Outside the Beltway, the GOP and its various extremist elements will be crucified. Sensibly, Obama has indicated that he is perfectly willing to let that happen as he does the stuff most Americans want to see done.

    Come sit down beside me I said to myself
    And although it doesn't make sense
    I held my own hand as a small sign of trust
    And together I sat on the fence

    You aren't.

    Are you telling us that on average you are more mannerless and less thoughtful than Europeans , for example ?
    Certainly there are no compelling reasons to imagine that you could advise anybody on a complex matter or one containing shades of innuendo .
    But I guess your greatest weakness is not being able to see yourself as others do . And therefore incapable of profiting from that exercise .

    Americans seeing Americans as others do is an exercise in self-destruction.

    American psychiatrists know that. And are redoubling their efforts.

    No, I don't watch Fox. And you flatter yourself. You're much more ignorant than you are subversive. A little person in a little out of the way country neither of whom are of much consequence. Clearly, you suffer from the "small town nothing to do syndrome" since you spend time on a message board that you have no relevance to.

    Ouch.
    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.

    You used to think the same about China. You know, when you had gunboats and Admiral Perry.

    I would consider now how relevant you are rather than worrying about us.

    We get on fine without you and, zut alors, regard you with sweet insouciance and much laughter. When we consider you at all.

    Apparently you are not au fait with the new world order.

    Mister D, a terminably upset American, continues to contaminate my threads even though on ignore.

    Is there any way the vastly clever programmers here can organise it so that I don't have to click on ignored Americans who pollute my threads?

    She can't quit the D. Yeah son...

    Maybe that's why so may Kiwis commit suicide. being 12,000 miles away from Mister D is too much to bear.
