        I sometime think those types are just right wing put ons, but who knows.

        BTW, I'm West Indian too - Cuban living in Puerto Rico.

          i had a to-the-matt argument with my cuban neighbor's ex-marine brother. i had innocently gone up to the neighborhood spanish restaurant w/ my son to get some take-out roasted chicken and he was in there. he INSISTED that we join him. i started knocking down everything about bush and the iraq war and he kept yelling (in a loud, but friendly drunken manner mind you), "it doesn't mattah!!" every perfect argument i made, he'd shout back, "it doesn't mattah!" and then in between shouting me down, he'd give loud throwing instructions to my baseball-playing son, "over the top, isaiah!" "just remember, over the top!!"

          hmph! you cubans! you're all alike!

            Heh.

            "It doesn't mattah."

            I like that.  May use it for a little while, with attribution of course.
