Fair enough, Remedial Reading 101. Have a good day, supposed to be a fairly nice weekend.

Paul, Your liberal elitist condescending attitude is so refreshing. Since you are making college course recommendations I thought I would help you out with some basic Vocabulary 1, as in 1st. grade. Almost - al·most/ôlˈmōst/ Adverb: Not quite; very nearly: "he almost knocked Georgina over". Synonyms: nearly - about - all but - practically - near - close to Perhaps this is an easier way for liberals like yourself to understand the meaning of ALMOST when put to use in a more appropriate sentence. A 5 watt CFL light bulb is ALMOST as bright as a 25 watt incandescent light bulb.

Shadow Bill, you are used to being in the dark. And you are still there. You don't even know what my disagreement with Mark was about as he failed to see it as well. It was never about the word "almost". It was always about the words "do not pay taxes". Back to Remedial Reading 101 for you too. Have you found that birth certificate you have been waiting for yet? Of course you probably didn't graduate college. Did you make it through middle school? Go mind your own business.

Paul, you truly are showing the true colors of a liberal elitist and you clearly never made it through charm school. Your constant inability to allow someone such as Mark express an opinion or quote statistics that differ from what you believe to be the reality in your liberal utopia without insulting them or their intelligence is just plain rude. That sir is one of the true signs of ignorance and typical liberal elitist intolerance of anyone who thinks differently then you. One of many qualities of the Orwellian examples of a Big Brother controlled socialist society that liberals like yourself want to force on the rest of the state and country. The name people use to identify themselves here on The Patch or anywhere else is completely irrelevant to the actual point of the conversation but when liberals like you have nothing to support your fallacious rhetoric you have to find ways to change the subject. Something you seem to excel at as if you have a PHD in misdirection and deception. If anyone is in the dark here it is the person casting disparaging remarks, calling people names, and that must be a sad pathetic little person.

The name you use (or choose not to use) is indicative of your character, Bill. You reap what you sow. You are the first to insult people and when they return the insult you become offended. Get real. Mark was quite capable of defending his remarks. Your sad little mind still cannot comprehend the point that was made, which was Mark said "almost 50% of the people to not pay ANY taxes". That is simply false as my post indicated. Grow up, take your ball and go home, Shadow Bill. Back into your bubble.
