Please. Allow me to extend my personal invitation to Chula to attack me with all the angry invective he can muster. It’s my duty as 2017 Member of the Year not to impede on this pure comedy gold.

How can an insult be considered anything but personal???

Hypocrisy and bad modding.

Face it, you and OH are simply in bed together when it comes to ME. I'm a big boy and can take it. Just really surprised the rest of the mods here put up with the hypocrisy in regards to family members.

It was just last fall that I posted about dropping everything and flying back east because everyone there thought my dad was dying. So pardon me if I'm a bit personally pissed with OH's reference towards him.

But, Frowny, you just won't get it. Hey, how are your parents doing these days?

1: There is no conspiracy against you. Pinkie swear.
2: Get over it if you're such a big boy.

Really nothing more to discuss here unless you have some news stories for us.

OH said all soldiers are war criminals.

You said your dad was a veteran.

Ipso facto OH thinks your dad is a war criminal. He just made it explicit. Don't use your family like a bomb in a debate and expect others to dive for cover.

^ Unfortunately, that's not what OH said though. He didn't qualify his comment by saying that it was just his thought and he threw in the gratuitous slur of murderer as well.
Look at how Frownland writes:-

^ This is clearly Frown's opinion, which he leaves open to debate.

I don't agree with Frownland's idea that fighting soldiers are war criminals and I have no reason to imagine that Chula's dad is anything other than a regular guy who deserves respect for raising a family and making it thus far in life.

Dude, raise a family, start a charity, whatever the ****. That's not what's being decried. I can't support their stance on serving in the war. I know a few veterans (young and old) who are harder on this stance than I am.

My third grade teacher taught me it was unnecessary to qualify every opinion with I think.

Don, that certainly sounds like you got a ménage à trois going on there. <--- I hereby qualify that as a %10 opinion, 10% humorous statement, 80% Trollheart joke, and hopefully it shall not be misconstrued as fact.
