Mogray. You have literally been into with just about every Mizzou poster on the SECr. i see you are making friends here as well.

Call me what you want but that statement is most definitely a passive aggressive shot at Military personnel.

MEh. You will never understand because you have never walked the walk. Thats ok bro.


Its the truth. Is it not? How is me observing that we used to treat soldiers bad, and now we treat them great a crime? I'm literally just telling the truth.

I don't think you understand what passive aggressive even means.

If anything, that is an aggressive-aggressive statement.

And we live very close, I'd like to prove to you I'm a part of the 1% that would tell it to a veterans face. How bout it?

Still waiting for someone to quote one thing I've said in this thread that is untrue.

I'm pretty convinced he's just a troll getting his kicks.

Is that a passive aggressive way of saying you don't want to?

You haven't said much in this thread that's quantifiable as either true or untrue. Mostly just a lot of bull shite opinion.

Personally, I think you're just trying to get a rise out of people.

Ill throw down with you at any time. My only concern would be you seem to be the type to head straight to law enforcement followed closely by a trip to a 2 bit attorney.

Sounds pretty clear to me what his meaning is. And there's nothing passive/aggressive about it.

Bull shite opinions?

Lets recap.

I said we treat our military better now than during Veitnam. That's accurate.

I said Gulf of Tonkin was a lie. Accurate.

I explained why people might have been negative during/after Vietnam. That's simply observing history. There were reports of bad behavior and that's how people create perceptions.

I went on to explain how if there are 6 very dirty plays in a football game, people are going to call that team dirty. It's how it works. That is just using a bit of thinking to help people understand how a perception get's made.

So no, I haven't said much that is bull shite.

But it's all pretty much opinion on your part. Which isn't quantifiable as either true or untrue.

Haha.

What a horrible judge of personality. You know my type well from everything I've said on the Mizzou board, going anywhere near police is the last thing I ever want to do.

And you must not know how the law works very well, it would take about 3 seconds for a lawyer to review this thread to realize I would have no case bc I made the first comment about a meet.

My God man... not really.

Do we not treat soldiers better today than during Nam?

Is Gulf of Tonkin not officially recognized as a lie?

And was there not a negative perception by the masses during/after Nam?

So none of those are really an opinion. They're factual observations.

And me explaining to you how a negative perception can be created by a small % of people behaving badly is not an opinion either, it's an attempt to help you see.

I'll try once more. If there are 6 very dirty plays in a football game, that's a lot. That team will almost certainly be called dirty for the way only 6 of 60 people behaved. Do you follow?
