    But what seems so confusing to us here in the PF at GC is that while you readily express your disgust for the words and actions of your POTUS, you seem to be hesitant to answer specific questions or engage in conversation about the words and actions of people who are actually on the radical left.

    What is Rape Culture, and IF it exists, why is it so "prevalent" on college campuses that are bastions of liberalism?
    What about the actions of Antifa in Portland?
    Do you support the "playbook" of the Democrats that was used against Kavanaugh?
    (I could go on.....)

      I hate to tell you coach but you were in the tank completely in this Kavanaugh witch hunt...right down their the scum that tried to destroy this man's family and his career. You supported what they were doing and hoped he wouldn't be confirmed, not because he wasn't qualified but because you just march along with you party. Those were radical lefties and you identified with them...like it or not.

        Is there another liberal poster on this board who is as candid, open, and specific as coach? He is willing to engage in honest dialogue. Also I think we have to remember that we conservatives constitute a majority here. If I were in the minority, I would find it easy to feel bullied.

          I think we're talking apple and oranges.

          It's one thing to post one's opinion or express one's disgust. It's another thing entirely to answer questions about WHY you have those opinions and/or justifying your positions.

            I'm trying to help the guy. He seems to want to be a moderate but he's not willing to really separate himself from the extreme elements of the democratic party.

            Smallpox, measles, etc. account for 95% of Native American mortality versus death via warfare. Without the plagues the Europeans brought with them, it would have been impossible to establish a colonial population of adequate size to displace the existing inhabitants of North America.

            I appreciate your civility along with Ancient. You and some other poster almost have identical names so I get confused. Rape culture is there for some women (much like how you feel when you see screwdriver marks on your door locks.) and you feel like criminals are watching your moves. Rape culture is when someone's BF at the Frat tells you not to drink the punch. Rape culture is when a few women begin talking to each other and realize they all had a horror story to reveal. Im not a woman. I like women and spent MUCH time with many over my career. If you read some of the stuff we say about women in here (ME INCLUDED) you would think there is a proclivity for lady grabbing or winking about stuff. I think the word is strong but in some circles or places there is a problem (or used to be) with boys thiinking they are entitled to girls . I think athletes and famous people are even more inclined sometimes to think it . But boy things are changing.
            I find that most older posters on either side are like us. They are willing to tone it down and try to make it civil. I appreciate it. It took me awhile to get the arc of history meaning from you. g8tr72 is a good guy. We have chatted some and he is sincere in his questions. Im just better at face to face discussions.

              Maybe you have a face that just leaves the other party speechless. :lmao2:

              Just kidding of course. I think.

              But I've not seen your face.

                          Correct and the proof is Africa. Why did colonization of Africa look so different than colonization of the Americas? Africans had the same (and in some cases more) disease immunity than the Europeans.

                          It wasn’t Spanish steel that laid low the mighty Aztecs. It was diseases that previously swept through Asia, Africa, and Europe but not the Americas.

                            As a Hatfield decendant I have to say there are only 2 sides to history. Hatfields & McCoys and God was on our side. After all Hatfields were Republicans.
