Truth be told I'm an... Americanophile?

If you had been a member of this forum longer, you'd probably know I would have bet money on that.  :lol1:

Truth be told I'm an... Americanophile? 

I actually get on with Americans.  I am the only British member of a twelve person team at work.  The other 11 people are Americans.  My job is based out of Pittsburgh.  I was there last in the run up to the election in 2016.  One of my favourite places is Manhattan.

Uum yeah, from the sounds of it, you only like Leftist Americans from big cities on the coasts (or accessible from them).

Then there's the rest of America, who doesn't buy into the PC propaganda.

You know, those people who voted for Obama in 2008 and 2012 but voted for Trump in 2016 because they finally realized that the Democrats fucked them over? That's the backbone of America.

I'm guessing you think those Americans are just a bunch of redneck hicks. AmIrite??

4 dead and 10 injured by an assault rifle rampage in California.

Stop worrying everyone, Mike Pence has prayed for you so everything is sorted out.

Christian people should not pray.

I learn so much from Four Ace
I don't want to hear it. Save your complaints to Odeon. Yes, we had decided to drop hostilities. No, I didnt expect that Odeon would do other than start shit again like he always does
You're not going to stick to "a handful people", are you? That would be stupid.
Damned if I won't respond.
So it's on again & you can lay the blame squarely at his feet. Little passive-aggressive bitch

Assault rifles are capable of full auto fire and are regulated by the firearms control act of 1934...

You know when you want a coffee?  Just a coffee?  No messing about.  Just white coffee in a cup and you want it now?  Well I went into a chain coffee place (for the first time in years as I don't do chains) and they had "Flat White" on the menu.  So stupid me thought that a flat white was just a white coffee and being in a hurry I ordered one. 

I then had to wait for 5 frickin' minutes while some idiot with a man bun on his head drew a perfect fern leaf on the top of it.

As soon as he put it down I grabbed a spoon and - while staring him straight in the eyes - I stirred the cup up and ruined all his hard work.

I said thanks and while I was walking off I distinctly heard him utter the "C" word under his breath.

What a tosspot he was. If there is any karma in the world he'll have gotten home and found his newborn baby being eaten by starving raccoons. Who'd chitter, stick up one digit on those curiously hand-like paws and mutter 'c**t' through a mouth full of romper suit.

I always have a soya milk latte, these days, with loads of sugar stirred in. Makes up for finding nothing I can eat, in those places (too many food sensitivities) .  I'd rather not do chains, but then, Starbucks offer a free latte when you present an empty promotional  pack of their ground coffee, and I cannot resist a bargain.  So that swings it.  The coffee if ridiculously cheap if you take account of the free latte, and not at all bad.

Which chain does the silly fern leaves? Heck, you probably have to pay an extra £1 or two per cup for the artistry.

That's a little extreme for me.  My favoured method of revenge is to induce mild irritation.  And besides, I admire a well placed expletive.  Swearing should be an art.

Indeed. I did mean to add something about the racoons drawing fern leaves on their meal. Been having a lot of connection issues and keep having to work on posts intermittently, Network cable has been causing problems.

I'd have been pretty hacked off if I was in a real hurry though, only for some bumptious little tit to ponce around drawing fern leaves in my coffee when what I wanted was something hot, poured in a cup, and a lid put on top maybe.

I substituted the words "Mental health" for the word "gun" in a post.  I was taking the implicit value system of the opposing argument and turning it back round to parody that very same belief system.

Yes, but in the case of the last 2 shootings, mental health was the core issue.

The Texas shooter shouldn't've had guns in the first place because he was legally barred from buying them, the law simply wasn't followed.

The California shooter should've been barred from owning guns, he had a history of violence and mental health issues.

The big problem with gun laws is twofold IMO:

1-it prevents the law abiding people, who might otherwise have no defense against an attacker from not being slaughtered by those determined to do so.

And 2-hardcore scumbags, terrorist jihadis, career criminals? gun regulations aren't going to make a difference, because those hellbent on violence of that nature, school shooters etc. they don't give a fuck about a few regulations, when they want the guns for purposes of indiscriminate slaughter. Thus such regulations actively serve to enrich the proportion of armed criminal thuggish elements to those who are law abiding, nonviolent and forced to remain unarmed but for what they have the means to arm themselves with (E.g things like coilguns, ECT cannons, railguns, nasty little contraptions built from microwave emitters and waveguides and pulsed power sources etc.)

So the law abiding who want weapons to defend themselves find themselves restricted, whilst the thugs and the terrorists aren't taking the least bit of notice in the first place.

Tell you what... how about another 30 years of inaction?  That'll solve it.
