    I think that kind of shit is really counter productive and foolish when you're trying to discuss sensitive subjects like politics. Seems to me is that all is accomplishes is making discussion as unpleasant as possible and turning people off to even bothering to engage with you.

    No actually I'm not. What Russia did what so immensely more valuable to help voting citizens make the correct call in the U.S. election. It was well known that Trump was a piggish womanizer going into this thing. That tape didn't really give us any new information. On the other hand, it was just assumed the Clintons were crooks. It was important to have that confirmation. Thank you Russia.

    Jim you nutsack, can we at least agree that Trump won on the strength of MI, OH, PA and WI? If so, then show me who voted against Clinton because of some ridiculous story about a child sex ring in a pizza place pushed by Twitter trolls named @Trump4life or whatever the fuck they named themselves?

    Do you really need to be told WHY those places went Trump? Because he pushed a campaign that appealed to them. Saving their jobs! And what did Hillary Clinton do? Push an agenda that benefited seemingly everyone EXCEPT older white males who work(ed) at union jobs. That's the former base of the Democrats. Gender issues with bathrooms...yup that's America's biggest concern right now. People in the rust belt losing their jobs and homes...nope that's not important because they all have privilege. Do you know how sad it is when a New York billionaire with a silver spoon in his mouth is more relatable to the working class than the alternative?

    Yeah, I'm sure it's a completely non-partisan issue for you. Everything you have posted on here suggests no bias whatsoever.

    The pragmatic and reasonable libtard BTS called Clinton's failure exactly as how I did. The devout socialist Dinger even said he would have preferred Republicans like Ryan and Romney over either candidate. The only two left in Clinton's camp are yourself and BigCecil and I have a feeling his support has more to do with empathy for her as a career politician having been in the same position than partisanship.

    Yeah because I was really getting somewhere with ol' Jim, like, ever.

    I have tried to curb name-calling for the most part but Jim's a race baiting asshole who thinks I'm a racist for some reason. There's no discussion to be had with him, thus I don't bother.

    Calling him a retard based on his posts is not a "personal attack" in the way that one would make fun of appearances or in the case that he's actually mentally challenged, which I wouldn't know anyway.

    But I know you like to go around acting like a puritan so I'll accept your scolding and vow to do better.

    By the way, while I'm not in the least bit ashamed that I hurt myself at work and need to switch careers, trying to make fun of me for it is real fuckin rich from some poser who tells triceratops sized piles of bullshit about sexual exploits that never happened to get brownie points from strangers on the internet.

    PS, your wife isn't hot, so you can cut that bullshit out too.
    Boxcar has it called correctly here. Interesting that Jim is so sensitive about Trump's comments over a decade ago as a 50+ yo old male. Isn't Jim also 50+? So why is he telling unsolicited stories about his sexual exploits? Granted he wasn't as lewd as Trump's comments but is was pretty clear what he implied. 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.

    Meh, it was a pretty stupid accident. I go back a lot in my head and think about how easily I could have avoided it had I just been more cautious. You do something often enough and you just become numb to the possibility of real danger, I guess.

    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.

    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.

    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.
