    Apology accepted hamsta. Lol and as they are 2 VERY different scenarios its a moot point anyway. As for this speech, all it showed me is the man lacks good common sense! Just another quality one DOESNT need for POTUS!

  6. Nomenclature

    Troll. A person using screennames other than their own. NOT to be confused with Hijackers, who are thieves and steal others exact screennames.
    Odd how most here confuse the two even after being here for years.

  7. Nomenclature

    For example, my name is Philip. Yet I am posed as Nomenclature. I am not trolling. I am posing.
    Had I posed as, say, Phildo, I would still be just as innocent of any wrongdoing, since none here use the s/n Phildo.
    Now, if I were to pose as Banazi, STILL I would bot be in violation. I would simply be using my s/n to highlight a certain charachtaristic of a fellow blogger. 🙂

    One can make up the rules as they go along, and that's fine; it is seen by all as what it is; trolling another person.

    And Kenney, we know it's not you.

    About Romney.
    As an LDS leader he taught that the old Jewish Temple in Jerusalem (currently a muslim mosque) that was destroyed by Roman armies in the year 70CE will be rebuilt in N. America, where Jesus Christ will sit as King and High Priest and rule the earth from there.
    And now you know why Romney keeps his religion and politics in seperate bags.
