I'm open to dialogue at any time, I just object to "jumping" in an out of humor during a "serious" discussion. I love shitposting as much as the next person but if a conversation is earnest I prefer to keep it that way. But it's a free country and free forum so I won't nor can force you into it.
I find your lack of vision disappointing. :)

That's not what I asked.
Since you posted that immediately following Adbul's post, I'll assume you were addressing that to him (and not me), and which also implies you decided my answer did not inspire any further discussion. :)
That's about right. I just can't talk to you or Grammy. You both appear to be intelligent peeps, but "you just can't be reached". :De_Bunk:
Now you know how I feel about talking to you. :pound_head: :P

Sure. I figured as much. :) Nothing personal friend.

ETA: Question is, back in your previous incarnation, we seemed to communicate a hell of a lot better than now. And this leaves me wondering who changed. I'm incompetent to comment on myself as I'm too close to me (the possible problem). But I have to note that since you've returned, you seem to have a cob rammed up your ass. What the hell happened while you were gone?

Woodward says 'key' Trump official told him book is ‘1,000 percent correct’
The Hill
Veteran journalist Bob Woodward said a “key” official in the Trump administration privately told him that the details in his books are “1,000 percent true,” but later publicly defamed him.

Woodward was interviewed on The New York Time’s podcast, “The Daily,” on Tuesday — the day his book “Fear: Trump in the White House” was officially released.

Hmmm, “key” official. Wild hyperbole “1000% true”, public defaming (via twitter?) ...
... is the anonymous source Trump?

Kind of argues against that he's just out to get Trump.

Maybe he's out to get Trump, but has some shred of integrity left.

Or he had to admit that the sky is blue or look like a fool.

He's touring with Art Garfunkel.
"If fighting is sure to result in victory, then you must fight! Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"
