Jaime - it speaks volumes when you state that you are against most social welfare programs and don't know one of the most prominent ones in the U.S.

I think you should avoid statements of saying you are against things until you actually know what those things entail.  This is not sacrasm and this is not an attack - simply an observation.

I never said I was for or against ADAP, did I? No, I sure didn't. I try my best not to formulate an opinion until I get the facts. Stop twisting my what I am saying, that is an attack and an observation. I stated something I was against because I know about it. Did you notice I didn't give a list of what I am for or against?

I am not for or against something until I am informed about it. Informed on both sides of the issue.

Then let this be a lesson. When someone has posted while you were writing, read what was posted.

Your official warning STILL stands.


I wasn't trying to get the warning taken away, nor am I interested in doing so. I was simply stating that I didn't see your reply and then you decided to see if maybe you'd caught me in a lie or something and you got all cocky with yourself and I told you that I did infact see the "warning" that someone had posted a reply when I was writing, but I always ignore those warnings and I will continue doing it unless they go away.

Jaime -

You said you were against most social welfare progrmas and I asked if you were against ADAP.

You said you didn't know what that was and I suggested that you avoid statements saying you were against things until you actually learn what those things are.

Where am I twisting your words?

Modified:  I wanted to include the quote for the context of what I and you are saying

I am a lot more then conscientious of money. I am against most social welfare programmes. I think a large portion (but not ALL for you nitpickers) of taxes are completely unneccesary (ie, the death tax aka what the commies call the estate tax).

I give up. I'm locking this thread.

Jamie, if this situation ever arises again where you ignore a warning that was posted while you were writing, you'll be given a time out, simple as that.

I'm not going to time you out just yet, only because you so obviously need the support and information you get here. But I'm warning you, tone down the sarcastic remarks or you will be timed out. Your official warning will stand until you can show you can discuss a topic without resorting to sarcastic and catty remarks.

Oh, and don't bother starting a new thread on the subject - it will also be locked.
