    If we can eliminate the bullying in our schools,we will therefore rid ourselves of 95% of the violence in our schools since that is the chief cause of our problems. As for Barack Obama,I cannot in good conscience vote for him again since he not only failed to get us out of both Afghanistan and Pakistan like he was supposed to do but wrongly got us into Libya,killing more people needlessly!

      Good posting,RUFFNUTT. Like you,I cannot vote for that butcher Obama either. He killed more people that all the members of the Chicago mob put together,past and present including Al Capone!!!

      Just thinking about it I do remember a report weather true or not that GADHAFI had his solders lay out he bodies that he had killed to make it look like NATO had killed them with the NO-FLY mission, is this what your referring to?

    Must be some other faker, jazzy. I have officially retired since i fessed up the other night. Remember, it was an April Fool's thing. Don't forget, you folks were doing that long before i came along. You gave me the idea. I do post under another name, but only on topic, not conversationally. When i want to talk to you guys, i will be "faker". If somebody hijacks that name, I really don't care. Lovin'ya.

    Obama is going to win, there is no better option, no one can beat him, he is the best President the US has had. The only bad thing he has is his wife, she's realy a mess, she looks like the maid of the white house.

    i'm confused perhaps. i'm not 100% versed on the RUFFNUTT way. but will say that's the first non wise a$$ reply i've read from him, if it's him. i hope it's him, if not then i'm sure he will pop up with something "enlightening".

    no offense but shouldn't it be close to always on topic? i mean, the buddies thing is good for you guys but perhaps that can be done elsewhere. we are discussing some very important topics that involve folks lives at times.

    anyways, maybe i'm jealous. pretty much a loner my whole life and never been part of the clique... 🙁

    Gawd, are we getting mushy here? Oh well. Love is all you need. 🙂 BTW, i know i'm persona non grata since my little joke, but i really meant the apology and i promise not to do it again. Having said that, aren't we ALL fakers to some degree? Off topic again!

    Sorry meant fiercely loyal

      Yes, i got fiercely loyal. Typos don't phase me. I admire and respect loyalty. As for fakery, i was referring to the various masks we all wear. Those who think they wear no masks are masking themselves from themselves! Even our names on these posts are fakes. Bet yer mom didn't name ya JAZZ! 🙂 Never meant to hurt feelings, just a little mischief.
