    I have this old book on the mystery genre called "Murder Ink" and there's a chapter on Buckley (since he wrote a self-insert Marty Stu James Bond type character back in the day) and there's this sidebar stating "How to Win a Debate With William F. Buckley".

    One line: "Listen, Junior..."

    That's about as good a Latin as you'd get outta me, to be honest.

    I still poop rainbows.

    I won't steal any of your ideas. I have enough of my own I'm not using.

    I think Irish monks could marry until Norman England conquered them and imposed Roman rules. I think.

    CathleenT:

    I made the decision, after a PM discussion with a few of the mods, to simply not visit the political venue of this site. My views will not change the views of others and my views will not be changed. I visit this site to be engaged with others who wish to write. Philosophical and political views aside, there is no reason to ever resort to high school profanity and juvenile name-calling on this site, even if feelings and egos have been hurt. This is a good site for learning, practicing, and picking up leads for open submissions so I put my own opinions and views in my back pocket when I enter this realm. I'm just curious, in this age of stalker-type behavior, which flounce has been the most disturbing yet strangely entertaining?
    Did you hear that noise? That's the sound of your muse leaving you for someone with more talent.

    You were blocked from the "Politics forum" because you couldn't be arsed to stop trolling. And you're not going to get a chance to do it here.
