What's great about you, Al, is that you provide proof that Neanerthal man
still walks among us.

You're right! The next target should be The White House. Down with
tyrannical rulers, proliferators of weapons of mass destruction, and

I think in 1981 the CIA was supplying Osama Bin Laden with training and

Yes, those evil Iranians. We still need to get back at them for ousting
the puppet leader we installed there. Nevermind that almost every Iranian
you talk to loves the West, dresses in Western style, speaks nearly fluent
English, and would really like to get rid of their religious leadership
(but they certainly do NOT want the US to do it).

Yeah, it's too bad. Oh by the way, I saw a guy living under a freeway
off-ramp the other day. It's a good thing our own government looks after
our best interest rather than investing our tax revenue into military
weaponry and programs to further enrich a small group of elites.

Al, this is senseless. You keep throwing this lame shit out at me and
it's just so obvious that to make a point of it is meaningless. I could
sit here forever ridiculing you but I now realize the folly of it. You're
an idiot and are incapable of debating beyond the 3rd grade level. Sorry
to be blunt but it's arguably a fact.

I hope the human race is rid of the genes that produced you and your ilk
someday (I know, fat chance).

Yes, I'm tired of being wrong. You win, Al! Everything I have ever
spoken in my entire existence has been a fraud, and you've exposed me. I
shall slink away in shame, never to be heard from again.
