Mike,Is there a link for this post? If so, it didnt "take"
Mikeb, Lamar Alexander Parkway in Maryville, Blount County is in Tennessee. Beyond that, since no details are given about what specifically happened, it's impossible to say who was responsible or what the broader cause of his death was.
Well, that's one of Mikeb's most fundamental rules: when in doubt, blame the gun culture.
I was definitely not in any doubt.
But, Mikeb, why can't you at least correct the glaring error in your title? If you can't get basic facts right--or be willing to make them right--why should anyone believe anything you say?
We're supposedly the one who takes blame off the negligent shooter (never mind the fact that we say that the negligent person is THE ONE PERSON who is responsible).However, here again Mike doesn't blame the unknown negligent party. No, he blames the "Gun Culture." A culture that participants know emphasizes safety in an effort to prevent things like this from happening, but which Mike claims encourages accidents.
I'm still wondering why you haven't corrected the title of this article. Are you simply too stubborn to listen to me?
I'm just seeing these comments now. You're really too much, Greg.
You posted my comments hours ago--do you not read them?
Actually I don't read yours, I click and post them. I trust yours to not contain any deletable offenses. Tennessean's I scan quickly. Kurt's I read carefully.If they were all like you, Greg, I'd take the comment moderation off. Please take that as a compliment with my thanks.
That explains a lot. My comments are addressed to you and to anyone else reading this. I figured this to be a discussion, but now I see that you're not really participating. Oh well, your loss.
What are you talking about. I'm not participating because I post your comments immediately and read them later?
Mikeb, it's no big thing. I'm just saying that when I address a comment to you, I'm not talking to the wind. I really do intend it as a response to you.
Oh, now it's no big thing. You said, "but now I see that you're not really participating. Oh well, your loss." I showed you where you were wrong about that. Instead of agreeing with it or admitting it, you now say it's no big deal.That's what makes arguing with you unfair. You will never admit when you're wrong.
The only error I've made here is to assume that you read all comments as you post them.
