Is it just me or has anyone noticed that there are folks on BP that want to argue with you about nothing at all? They come on your page, and supposedly find a reason to argue. To those folks I say, get a stinking life, read a book, write the great American Novel, go to your local senior citizens home and give them wedgies, ride a bicycle across the country, jump out of an airplane without a chute, swim with sharks, skinny dip with piranhas, go on a treck to find the Yetti, Abominable Snowman, Skunk Ape, Loch Ness Monster, a Dragon, a Unicorn, a Black Person in Montana, or some other mythical/mysterious creature just find something to do. If you entertain the argument it`s like mud wrestling with a pig, you both get dirty but the pig enjoys it. All these computer tough guys/girls, and this Cyber Thuggery has gotten out of control. These folks couldn`t bust a grape in a food fight but put them on that keyboard and you have the reincarnation of Bumpy Johnson (The Movie Hoodlum).
Why do so many Blacks adopt Italian gangster names as their nicknames? Is that supposed to make you tough? It just makes you sound confused about who and what you are in my humble opinion. The Italian Mafia has no use for Blacks yet we break our necks to name ourselves after them. Picture that.
Am I the only one who hates so called Ebonic`s and Phonetic Spelling? Phonetic Spelling is a tool designed to hide those that cannot spell or are too lazy to spell words out under the guise of being cool, hip, with it, ride or die or whatever else it`s called. However, I know the truth, the fact is many of you that use it just plain can`t spell. Please do not send notes like "how r u doin," or "I have c'n U B4."
Why is someone who disagrees with ignorance called a hater? I guess I am a hater, because I do hate stupidity.
If I hate you does that automatically make you a player? If it does, then wouldn`t that make me a player maker?
At the bottom of the page are a few quotes I like, I did not make any of these up myself due to the fact that I am as deep as a puddle, as thought provoking as what`s for lunch, as sharp as a bowling ball, and as complex as a comic book.

"We few, We happy few, We band of brothers; For he today that sheds his blood with me shall be my brother; be he ne`er so vile this day shall gentle his condition: And gentlemen in England, now a-bed shall think themselves accurs`d they were not here, and hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks that fought with us upon Saint Crispian`s Day"--William Shakespeare, 1564-1616, Henry V, (1599)

enslaved. If you breed with your enemy, you'll be destroyed. Equality may be a right, but no power on earth can make it a fact."
"The tactics of smear almost always tell us that the smear`s target has offered facts and arguments that can't be answered on their merits - and the only way to answer them at all is to attack the person who brings them up in the first place."
