I was pretty much against Trump's hard-line immigration policy, but have to re-think that stance now that I know Henry Vilas would never have been born if such rules were in place back-in-the-day.

Even if penquin's wish that I was never born came true, he'd still be his typical argumentative, illogical self.

Waiting for @JoeT to finish up her milquetoast, arrange for her poopy pants to be de-pooped, and configure her emotionally stunted, simpering faux-intellectual pablum.

Wait a minute.

It's almost 08:30 a.m. CDT on Saturday.

Reckon it'll be shelved til cartoons are over.

I'd be in Halifax. But I'll settle for Toronto.

Yet despite his uncompromising beliefs, Mr. Buckley was firmly committed to civil discourse and showed little appetite for the shrillness that plagues far too much of today’s political discourse.

Every now and then I open one of his posts just to remind myself why he's on ignore. He still likes to insult male posters by assigning them to the female gender. Because females are inferior, you see.

And people still think he might not be Blaska, eh? Why on earth do you think that?

I think females are inferior? News to me, because, like, you know, gender is a social construct crafted by the EVIL White Y-Chromosomal Patriarchy to subjugate those who are from VENUS, something which I fight til I draw my last gasping breath!

I will concede to thinking INDIVIDUALS are inferior (read: dumb fucks!); I need look no further than the two posts just above this to confirm that!

Anywho, sheesh, I can't catch a break. The posters I think are male are female and visa versa.

The standing wager of a grand is still on the table. Put yer pecuniary wherewithal next to your maxillary orifice, or STFU.

Capisce?

I'm agnostic on the idea. IRL, Blaska likes to present himself as a reasonable guy. He's not, very, but that's what he likes to think.

But he's put on a persona. He doesn't have to pretend he's reasonable. This is him, not his presentation.

Well, since I ignore him, I can't really say from my own experience. All I'm in a position to do is accept the possibility.
