Yeah, that's very true. I don't think government assistance has been big enough of a problem for us to stress about as much as we do. There are much more expensive wastes of money. Like those tax loopholes Trump promised to fix and I haven't heard anything about since he became president.

I get that your disappointed or annoyed with me for thinking differently, I really don't care. Change my mind, present examples, provide counter points.. Demonstrate how it's good for society as a whole to be treated like children and never strive to improve problems through action.
Nuance isn't his thing, give it up. Trying to explain it to him is just going to make him angrier. He's repeatedly made it apparent that he cannot approach a discussion like an adult or even as a mentally stable person. Its Roxy Part II.

Nobody is lumping them together though. We've all made a clear distinction between the two. If you really look at it, we all want the same thing. The leaches to quit leaching and the people who really need it to get it. How we fix it is the problem. Or maybe we just have to deal with the fact that it's always going to be imperfect and move on.

Like in my last post, no easy solution. Just wish folks here could find a way to not lump the truly needy and the leeches into the same off the cuff comments.

Frown. Once again, ..................

Oh **** it. I'll never understand how you achieved mod status. Who makes these decisions? What are they based on? Is this some sort of secret society? Do the rest of the forum membors get a say? If not, why not?

What percentage of members have to speak up about a "nonimated" mod as being unworthy (a ****ing dick) before the secret society take notice?

What's the ****ing executive process around here?

I'm pretty sick of an official MB moderator slinging pompous and pretensious **** at me over and over again. Holding the title, shouldn't you be above it?

No, because Frown is typically a fair and trustworthy moderator. His personality isn't much of a factor and he shouldn't have to hinder it for the sake of a facade.

Are you serious? Facade? Please explain.

He comes at me all the time. Using his bias as an excuse.

Frownland deflects and insults Chula for his opinions, again in 5... 4... 3....

I'm tired.

You're saying he should censor his thoughts because it makes him look like he's unworthy of being a mod even though his track record as a mod has been fair.

His opinions, condescension and insults, which most people on here do including you, have nothing to do with his modding ability. It only makes it look like he's a terrible mod when he's not.

I mean, unless there is some kind of incident I don't know about.
