Why do you come here at all?
Your substance to insult ratio overall has got to be around 1 to 10. And what little substance you do offer has little if anything to do with the main topic of this forum. Do you really get that big a kick out of tossing puerile insults about? I'm quite serious. I can't for the life of me understand why you post here.

A challenge
Tell you what, Champ. I'll give you a chance to put your money where your mouth is. I've got nearly 3,000 posts here, you've got less than 1,000, roughly a 3 to 1 ratio. I'd bet that for every post of yours that you can find that is all substance, no insults, I can find 5 of mine that are. And I'd bet that each of mine that I select would be longer than yours as well.

But you won't do that. You're not about substance and backing up what you say with evidence. You're about whining and making shit up. So my second bet is that you either won't respond to this, or you'll dismiss it with some lame ass excuse.

I don't know. I don't think he's said anything near as clueless as Buz, and Buz has been saying the same crap for years.

I grant you, there's reason to suspect. But the very fact that we have Buz and his ilk is the very reason it's quite impossible to tell for sure if someone is being sincere or just pulling your chain. After all, that is what Poe's law says.

So what does that say about George Washington?

It says that a lot of people are more than willing to make up lies about George Washington to advance their own religious agenda.
