Delilah, what happen to your response? You had posted something about...........blah, blah, blah, nevertheless I need to not be " talking out the side of my neck" .
I think I recall hearing that term when I was eight years old maybe, so you're like someone's great-grandma I guess, and so maybe I should be more gentle with you.
But you made a few other personal attack statements, & no attempt to debate to my factually-based comments, which so obviously rubbed you the wrong way.

Unfortunately, there was a problem with the site over the weekend that wouldn't allow me respond, (or post new poetry, etc.) , but I did want to tell you that I found a Political Forum here in PoemHunter.com. At the end of the forum title listings click " more" if you'd like to find it. So much more appropriate for this type of exchange.


1. I was not apologizing to you, but to the others who've been subjected to our " conversations" .
2. I did not retract anything I've said in previous posts and stand firmly on everything previously posted.
3. Your reply put me down pretty good (or at least that appeared to be your intention) but you did not attempt to refute any of my statements with opposing facts???
4. I'll keep an eye out In the POLITICAL FORUM for any factually based opposition.....in case you do in fact.......have any factually based, well.....um.....anything.

    I deleted what I'd said because I felt I'd perhaps been a bit too harsh with you...
    Your response to what I said (and its erasure) confirms the fact that you are looking to have someone with whom to fight and argue, and so that you can make pitiful attempts at being " insulting" , albeit it that all you say lacks accuracy.
    I do not wish to continue communicating with you at all....you shall have to find a " sparring partner" elsewhere. Your babbling and carrying on do not interest me. Your antagonistic screwball antics are boring.
    I shall not respond to anything you say, as you seem to be an angry, confused and quite vociferously whacko person. I do not wish to waste any more of my time on your nonsensical goings-on. I hope you feel better soon, and I still wish to convey to you that I am sorry for your loss and your pain. If you are here to write poetry please do so...or don't...it's up to you.

      Finally something we agree on, that we're unlikely to ever agree on anything........and so should discontinue communication. But just for the record, you never did give an option to the problem of ... more
