    I am perfectly happy with my original comment. In fact, my warning about the predictable response was born out to a T. Unfortunately.

    •  At no point have I whined about you provoking me (0+ / 0-)

      So stop with the continuing projection.

      In fact, it could have been a decent exercise in discussion if you weren't so smug and quick to cut people down.

      •  Given that the first response to my comment was (0+ / 0-)

        Thank you for citing for us perfect rationalizations of why the dominant culture thinks it is OK to finish the work of the Final Solution.

          My opinion has already been stated that you led out in that opening comment with a brusqueness that diminished the possibility for developing discourse.

          Perhaps you should write your own diary and develop the ideas there.

          •  Perhaps I will continue to challenge lazy thinkin (0+ / 0-)
