    just what we need, more entitlements.

    All symbolism and handouts, while Rome burns, you MOFOs are ruining this place

    How about defeating a pathological liar like you in an argument?
  9. No he's not. You on the other hand are documented to be unable to comprehend what someone is saying, jumping to conclusions, ignoring clarifications and generally being stupid. So I call BS on your liar charge.
