The "do unto others" test...
If someone kicks in your door and craps on your floor, they have no right to expect hospitable treatment.
Yep - but if one wants to be civil, one usually has to wait until that someone starts unzipping their pants and starts looking for the TP roll -- that is, assuming they wipe at all.
I think you'll like it here. We can have very pointed and direct discussions, and sharp differences of opinion. But because we've all been down the road and back with the Leftists, we seem to have settled on a civil, friendly "culture" here. We're all pretty much appreciative of the fact that we're on the same "team".
I think I can speak for most here when I say that even when we differ, we truly enjoy each other. That's not necessarily true on other forums.
