  •  The point is a question that you don't answer. (0+ / 0-)

    I already know that we are in one and have been for longer than any of us have been alive.

    The point is to try to get to the issue you claim you want to discuss. What constitutes a civil war for the purposes of the discussion?

    You haven't yet answered the very first question.

    If you want to restrict discussion to whether or not anyone believes that "the south will rise again" and we'll face hordes up rusted out pick-ups filled with the cast of Deliverance on a bourbon fueled rampage across the country, then no.

    If all you're looking for is assurance that all will be well and it's OK to invest your nest egg in the company 401(k) and have that baby, why waste our time?

    Are you looking for a discussion without any discussion allowed?

      seems confused.

      When you say there are 30k gun deaths and then try to attribute that to some organized Civil War it makes it hard to take you seriously. I have not defined the lines the 'Civil War' nor am I looking for 'assurance' in anything, 401k or not.  I am looking for intelligent calm discussion and i'm not finding it in this post chain.

      From my recollection we often tend to agree around here, but in this case you are out of bounds with your belittling tone. So I am going to end this chain of discussion and you can think anything you like.

      •  You've been asked the same question several times (0+ / 0-)

        by several people, none of whom received any meaningful answers from you. If there's any confusion here, I think it is on your part in regard to what constitutes discussion.

        Enjoy.

          see it its because you don't like the answer.

          Your 401k question was insulting reducing the whole discussion to a matter of finances. I am not here for money I am here to better our country.

          If you don't see that you aren't paying attention.
