Tsk tsk tsk. You are welcome to come up with legitimate criticism at some point before I die of old age. Until then, pretend Obama had your best interests at heart eight years ago.

As for me, Trump could die tomorrow and I'd laugh. You should learn to recognize, however, that his failures are partly a consequence of underlying issues your own party did not bother to address due to laziness, stupidity and numerous other factors. And now we have to live with him.

This is more or less my life right now

but it's not relevant

It is though, because opinions change over time and with experience.. and you can call bull**** on me if you want, but I used to think very similarly to you and argue with people my age in the exact same ways you're arguing with me now. The only difference is you are more educated on the topics than I was at the time, and the world was in a different place.

Are you even following the grownup **** I'm posting about. This isn't the ****ing media. (again, your snobby pretension rears it's head).

List my stupid statements. Please. You came out and called me stupid. Back it up. Without pretension. Bring it on.

It makes me sad when you start a conversation with me and then ignore my reply to insult Frown.

Dude, happy for you. Believe it or not, you got lucky. Tons of people have amazing work ethics and bust their butts, and still don't get through. Don't anoint yourself.

But you hurled the first rock, even though you knew my family's circumstances. That sting hasn't quite worn off yet.

If you get your opinions from personal experience rather than study

Yeah they will be fickle and change with age

I really didnt though. Please wuote the post where I attacked you personally and was not addressing a broader point. There is obviously a break down in communication, i only ad hominem elph.

You are basically MB's Huffpost mouthpiece. Post the adult conversations that you've had in here that weren't childish insult fests.

I don't want to break the site's bandwidth by listing all of your stupid statements and I'm pretty sure that there's no way for me to say anything without you thinking it's pretentious. I'm sure you'll take these criticisms maturely () here's a couple of recent ones

Like your hilariously inaccurate perception of DWV

I could go on but our history tells me that the stimulating conversation that this post will spark between me and you will be rich enough with intellectual curiosity and thoughtful reasoning to add more.
