Dave, spell check doesn't check for wrong usage, just wrong spelling. Want is a real word, and so is wont (without the apostrophe). Since you're an English or literature major . . . or something like that per your own words . . . I thought you would appreciate the correction. I know you would do the same for me. lol

"15% is nothing when you consider that is a national average." ----- Tammy this post of yours is so imbecilic on so many levels it would be impossible to apply critical thinking to it. So I won't even try. --- Suffice it to say that you have, maladroitly, strung together a number of disjointed thoughts and posted them as though they were some kind of reasoned explanation of something. What? I don't know. Maybe, if you reply to this post, you can explain what it is you are trying, so unsuccessfully, to say.

""I see it doesn't take much to impress you."..........I'm impressed by spell check." ----- Really dave? Then you should try using it sometimes. ----- "Actually, we're attempting to teach the obvious to idiots." ----- Reiterating untrue, unfounded and debunked right-wing talking points to oneself in the mirror is not teaching. It's just reinforcing the stupidity that you right-wingers have come to embraces as your ideology.

"Really dave? Then you should try using it sometimes.".........Can you point out a single misspelled word I've typed? Further, do you have anything useful to add or are you just concerned about trivial things like spelling?============"English or literature major"...........English, although there is a lot of literature involved in an English major.============"I thought you would appreciate the correction."..............At least as much as I would appreciate a resignation letter by Obama from the presidency.

Wrong and wrong, Dave. I'm beginning to think that responsible gun ownership is not possible to the degree that would keep any innocent people safe. You and the NRA should work on that.
John B February 04, 2014 at 01:11 PM
lol...for the love of Pete.....another one of these threads....."wrong and wrong." Now why is this not a surprise? What a burden some carry having to go through life having a copyright on being right.....
Good Grief Y'all February 04, 2014 at 03:28 PM
It's easy when the person you're replying to IS wrong and wrong and lies and lies. No burden at all.
John B February 04, 2014 at 04:32 PM
That's not why............
Dave February 04, 2014 at 05:11 PM
"You and the NRA should work on that."..........Do you know anything about the NRA or are you just regurgitating the liberal press BS? Look at the history of the NRA before you vomit all over the US Military.

"Can you point out a single misspelled word I've typed?" ----- Yes I could but it would make no difference you would find some way to spin it so I won't. ----- "Further, do you have anything useful to add or are you just concerned about trivial things like spelling?" ----- Again the answer would be yes and again it would make no difference Spin Man.
TheSkalawag February 04, 2014 at 07:35 PM
"That's not why..." and " Do you know anything about the NRA ..." ----- I see the tiresome twosome is back and just as boring as ever.
TheSkalawag February 05, 2014 at 07:38 AM
"Do you know anything about the NRA?" ----- It would seem that the question would be better put to you since you are the one that doesn't know the difference between its history and it's current positions. --- And what does the current NRA have to do with the military? Once again you are trying to cloud the current issue with questions about extraneous propositions that have nothing to do with the current discussion.
Dave February 05, 2014 at 07:40 AM
" Yes I could".......Prove it.===="Again the answer would be yes and again it would make no difference Spin Man.".........Prove it. You and your mom are the ones around here known for spinning lies.========= " Do you know anything about the NRA ..."..............Well, do you? I didn't think so.
TheSkalawag February 05, 2014 at 08:09 AM
"Prove it." ----- No Dave. My New Year's Resolution is not to participate in futility and trying to prove anything to someone like you who does not accept facts as proof would be an exercise it that which I have resolved not to do. ----- Connect the NRA's current position to the NRA's history.

"That's not why..." and " Do you know anything about the NRA ..." ----- I see the tiresome twosome is back and just as boring as ever." -righto! ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- Skalawag, I came across a 500+ blog thread recently. 500+ comments and as far as I can tell from what I have read - not all of the comments, but plenty from the first, middle and last of them - no one is attacking or name calling. There's no character assassination. There are lots of differences expressed and a little sarcasm, but nothing hateful and ugly. You might enjoy reading the article and some of the comments. Very interesting: http://dacula.patch.com/groups/business-news/p/is-2014-the-year-for-increasing-the-minimum-wage#new_comment

Thanks Good Grief Y'all I'll check it out although it may not remain that way for long now that you know who may know about it. :-)
Good Grief Y'all February 05, 2014 at 10:54 AM
They probably wouldn't post on that thread unless you and I did. Or if they did they wouldn't show their true selves, which would get them called out by other participants on either side, or maybe even the editor(s). Wouldn't that be interesting . . .
Dave February 05, 2014 at 04:26 PM
"My New Year's Resolution is not to participate in futility and trying to prove anything to someone like you who does not accept facts as proof ".........As usual, you are spinning out of control trying to avoid facts and Truth.========"They probably wouldn't post on that thread unless you and I did. Or if they did they wouldn't show their true selves"..........Why would I post on a thread that proposes to destroy America? Raising the minimum wage further destroys American jobs. You useless individuals that don't care about jobs, only the amount of your government checks, are the reason for American failure. Get a job, quit being useless.
TheSkalawag February 05, 2014 at 06:40 PM
".As usual, you are spinning out of control trying to avoid facts and Truth." ----- If that's how you see it then that's how you see it. You're wrong but that's par for the course. ----- "Raising the minimum wage further destroys American jobs. " ----- That's not true but truth has never made any difference to you any way. Why change now?
Good Grief Y'all February 06, 2014 at 08:43 AM
Dave, why do you post on any thread?
TheSkalawag February 06, 2014 at 09:14 AM
"Dave, why do you post on any thread?" ----- Good question Good Grief Y'all. It will be interesting to see his answer. If he answers at all. He has a tendency toward avoiding tough questions.
Dave February 06, 2014 at 09:19 AM
"Dave, why do you post on any thread?"..........To spread Truth and debunk the liberal lies you've been spoon fed. And to allow you to respond, thereby giving the world an opportunity to see how stupid liberals really are. Thanks for your help!
Dave February 06, 2014 at 09:21 AM
" "Raising the minimum wage further destroys American jobs. " ----- That's not true but truth has never made any difference to you any way."...........Talk to ANY small business person about what increasing the minima wage does. There is only so much money in the pot for paying employees. Paying a higher wage means someone has to go. And it causes prices to be raised, taxes to decline, profits to shrivel, deflation to occur, your government check to become worthless.
TheSkalawag February 06, 2014 at 10:00 AM
"Dave, why do you post on any thread?"..........To spread Truth and debunk the liberal lies ..." ----- I see the Bizarro Bubble World atmosphere is just as mind numbing as ever. ----- "Talk to ANY small business person about what increasing the minima wage does." ----- Same Bizarro Bubble World talking points that have yet to be borne out by actual facts instead of anecdotes. --- Are you afraid to use, unwilling to use, unable to use or just not smart enough to use spell check Dave. Case in point "minima".
Dave February 06, 2014 at 10:17 AM
minima IS a word. If you had stayed in school you might know that. Every time you post is just more proof of how far the liberals have dumbed down America.
TheSkalawag February 06, 2014 at 10:39 AM
"minima IS a word." ----- That may be Dave but how you used it is wrong. There is no plurality of the federal minimum wage therefore the dumbing down of America is only happening in your Bizarro Bubble World.
Dave February 06, 2014 at 11:16 AM
Again showing your "dumbness." Minima is not a plural of anything. But there is a "plurality of the federal minimum wage"...loss of jobs, deflation of the currency, decreased tax collection, increased prices........the list is long. Too long. But, it has one positive outcome for your party...it enslaves you further to their failed policies.
Good Grief Y'all February 06, 2014 at 12:41 PM
Dave: why aren't you posting your minimum (minima) lol federal wage increase comments on that other thread of the appropriate blog topic? Or, are you? I haven't looked in the last few hours.
Dave February 06, 2014 at 01:43 PM
Because most people on that thread already know the devastation an increase would cause. My purpose is to educate the stupid, i.e you and your son.
Good Grief Y'all February 07, 2014 at 11:04 AM
Dave, you need to go back to school if your purpose is to educate anyone, including yourself . . . for a lot of years. But the up side for you (only) would be you might live long enough to get some notice about being the oldest student in the world. .............................................................................................. That answer is just a cop-out. You don't feel confident or knowlegeable enough to comment there. lol .............................................................................................. I don't have a biological son. I do count my sons-in-law as family. ............................................................................................. P.S. Didn't you say that thread was not mostly right-wing postings?
