    Appreciate your sentiment, though. I wasn't looking for a pity party or anything, I'm more bothered that people are talking about the accident than Jim making fun of me for it.
    I made sure to use the word gimp so you knew I wasn't that sensitive to your plight. Now all I can picture is Tulowitzki in a Stephen Hawking pose when I think of you.

    There's three stages of insults.

    Level One: Attacking the post.
    Example: That's the dumbest post I've ever seen.

    Level Two: Attacking the poster.
    Example: You're the biggest moron that ever lived.

    Level Three: Attacking the post in a personal way.
    Example: I saw a pic of your gf online, and she looks like George Lopez.

    Traditionally, moderators tend to allow the first two, but Level Three is off limits.
    Examples in this thread include mocking someone for collecting disability, and a judgments as to the attractiveness of someone's spouse.
    Both posters should apologize to each other, and do better. And none of this 'he started it' shit.

    Yes. This is what got Randy The Robot kicked out of LOD.

    It's not even a scolding. I was just calling attention to a patently absurd statement. Calling someone a retard is both a) an attack and b) and attack that is personal in nature. I'm sorry if I'm not more appreciative of your efforts to curb name-calling.

    I think both of you have a different definition of what counts as personal. Neither of you are wrong.

This isn't bodybuilder.com's brotalk forums either, I don't recall anyone else here bragging about their sexual exploits and glad that they don't.

    So why is Jim so hypersensitive against Trump? Because he sees a lot of Trump in himself, the part he doesn't like. You ARE Trump Jim, minus all of the success.

    Plus some 20-something yo is already a gimp from an accident at work? That's not cool to be making fun of that, that's really bad luck to have happen so early in work life. You'd think Jim with his alleged disability would be more sensitive to that.
    This is A+ level work

    So is Donald Trump actually going to spend his Presidency embarrassing himself and his country by ranting like a lunatic on twitter every time someone criticizes him? Someone has to take his twitter away. The guy becomes the fucking POTUS in less than two weeks.

    I said surely he is not going to respond to this as i lay my head to sleep last night..... Wake up in the morning and yup.... He sure did.... Amazing that this guy and who can't keep his emotions in check is going to be the POTUS.

    Someone should tweet some posts from this thread to him. He'd have a BJMB account up and running within an hour.

    If he wants to do that and leave the decision-making to people who actually have a clue, fine by me.

    Meryl Streep overrated... LOL

    Yeah, good point. As long as he can resist the urge to poke NK and China with a stick over twitter and sticks to ranting about celebrities and the media, he can continue embarrassing himself by being the most triggered, thin skinned child in recent memory and it won't do any real damage.

    You'd probably need to surgically remove the smile off Putin's face at this point.

    This is going to be a perfect opportunity for Putin to seize more former USSR territory. I give it a year. Trump won't lift a finger.

    He then follows it up with 2 major victories - Ford and Chrysler U.S. plant investments. So you see the conundrum the American voting public is in. Trump has already (appeared to do) done more for the rust belt before even starting his term than Obama has done in two terms.

    Do you want a whiny baby who at least gets stuff done or someone who can appear all prim and proper and talk big ideas but ultimately fails to accomplish much of anything on most of them?
