Unlike you... I am not going to resort to the lesser tactics of those I do not agree with.

And no, you're not going to "register" to me when you're wrong. That's a done deal regarding at the very least the 'where' you choose to vent your version of abiding with others. Have at it... don'the troll it off topic like a Paraquat... if you still don't get that... "Fuck it"... really... I don't argue with my youngest kids either. I don't moderate here, pay the server bill... I presented my points. Nothing else to do but proceed on my path and abide with those I can ☺

BikerDude is the superior in his reasoning at the very least among the 3-4 key players. And I can respect that.

Which one of my tactics was lesser? Which one of Hominid's? All anyone has done is call you out on your own bullshit. Even in your last post you contradict yourself by saying you don't control anything and telling others where they should and shouldn't post. Get over yourself, Man. People have been saying what they want, where they want to say it long before you arrived. That shouldn't change because one person wanders in and has his feelings hurt.

I have not seen you post one positive topic about Christianity since you've been here, it's all been just one long fight on other topics you deem wrong.  You could have easily just started posting topics that support your own views on the subject but instead you chose to tell everyone else why they are wrong. Anyone that goes against what you believe is an automatic troll, undude, doesn't understand the materials, or is younger and therefore lesser than you in someway, and you think we're the ones that use lesser tactics?

I have to ask, where you an officer? You just seem like the type that would make Soldiers salute you in passing at the PX.

Wow RandoRock...

You sound like Hilary now... you were actually the last to comment on the thread I started in "The Jesus"  forum subsection, "Be there, man". Did you forget that? And I dare say, perhaps unread by you at this time... I have included some very positive things within my various 'essays'.

Has anyone seen this:

https://www.facebook.com/PeopleForBernie/videos/1767569620129911/

Her and Bill have made millions selling memoirs for two people who cannot recollect anything... lol. (I am not a Bernie supporter disclaimer... this is just where I found the video)

But yes...Your right RandoRock. Too much time wasted... it's all out and pretty clear and ad nauseam. That's all anyone can ask whether or not other people agree.

As far as my military service is concerned. No... I declined to be a Warrant Officer... Was an NCO. Basic at Fort Benning, AIT at Fort Bragg for a total of 2 years in training, then more training at Fort Meade... assigned to a unit at Fort Bragg for 6 years... 5 tours in Afghanistan... last assignment in Hawaii for 5 years. Most of my time spent in units and places where saluting was 'undude'  8) Full Retirement and I still have all my arms and legs!

Like Hillary? So much for civilized discussion. Truth be told you are correct, I forgot about that one instance due to it being...well one instance.  My only point in all this was if you want to post positive things about Christianity then you should do so without trying to tell others they cannot have a different opinion. It shouldn't matter if the last 20 topics where negative, it shouldn't matter if I disagree with everything you say, it shouldn't matter if there isn't one single nice thing about Christianity on this whole site. Yet for some reason all of this matters to you. Why? What reason do you have for jumping on to each post and trying to prove them wrong? Why can't you just accept that others have a different opinion than you and worry about your own beliefs? I've read a lot of your "essays" and most of them come off as you talking down to anyone that disagrees with your beliefs, I'm not really sure what's positive about that. It's clear that we are two personalities that will most likely not jive well together, nothing wrong with that. You are too stuck on your beliefs and I am too stuck on mine so for the sake of keeping my own Dudeness in check I'm going to say live and let live.

But I must say I find it a strange boast that you made it home with all your arms and legs, I mean good for you but there were many of our brothers that weren't so lucky.

Hey man... Sorry for the Hilary thing... Some Dudes might dig her:) I just tend to make connections to other things I experience, see, hear, etc... and that comment followed by her with Bernie standing behind her while she praised him for supporting during the event she claimed to not know where he was just leapt into my memory... Along with her whole "I had to be escorted under sniper fire" memory lapse she had on another topic.

The "Why" I thought had been made clear. Maybe it is in the last post I made on another thread. I am not really addressing what makes, or if some of them are wrong... I really haven't shared my beliefs here. Most is just being assumed because of the forum name. But I have had some difficulties not talking down in some of the posts (we all have our struggles... but change can happen). Dudeism is one of my attempts on improving. One look at my resources and the mere fact I am here seeking to participate in Dudeism should tell you that I am not stuck in anything. Just because someone believes they have reached a truth in a given area doesn't preclude their capacity to grow in another... or add to anything else. Remember... you're talking to a JKD instructor here too... not just a 'Christian'.

I have other posts to produce... but I am also working on building a site. The whole lots of ins and outs thing... Along with family, graduate school... it' hard to take it easy :(

I made the comment on the arms and legs because I was medically retired... and very lucky... very thankful. No offense to others who took different injuries than myself. Alot of them really get the shaft because no one helps them navigate the red tape to get their benefits. In fact... If any Dude you come across has issues or concerns with this... Particularly if they are still in... There is a HUGE chance I can assist them if they are not too far into the process. Please contact me.

Of all the things said over these last few topics the Hillary one might have been the most out of line  :P She's just awful.

I understand where you're coming from and for the most part I've gotten what you are trying to do with the forums. I just disagree with you that the only content should be the positive stuff. That is my number one complaint, I honestly don't care if you want to get on a megaphone and shout God is great in all our faces. My issue is when people are told they cannot pick up their own megaphone and shout in disagreement. Both sides of any argument should be treated with the same amount of respect, even if it's the side you don't agree with.

I very much dislike censorship and this new trend of political correctness what is sweeping the country, so I can admit that I get a bit passionate when I see examples of it. "While I disagree with what you say, I'll defend to the death your right to say it." are words to live by in this Dude's humble opinion.

The VA and their inability to take care of returning servicemen is another topic all together...

Oh I know, I'm well beyond the point where I think there is even the slightest chance anything I say to him will register but I am nonetheless going to keep trying because I'm on a boring post at work and I have nothing better to do.

Lol...  I like yer style dude.
