|Oh! I thought you said it the first time to stop me ranting,...|
Yes, I did. I'm just willing to go to whatever means to bring it to an end, and if means to unconditionally conceed to your point of view, then yes, I'm willing to do it. That's not to say that I'm not still confused about a few things. I'm confused as to why you say (in the other thread) that you don't think there should be threads or topics like the one we disagree on but will choose to bring it up again yourself in an unrelated thread, and then make it sound like I'm the only one that disagrees with you. I'm confused why you say that when you wish there was no threads like the other one allowed since it drags down the forums but then you say you agree with the Dixie Chicks when they drag down a concert and all their fans when they use their microphones to give their political banter when they're paid to just sing, but I won't ask you to explain it. I'm a bit confused at how you say you agree with the Dixie Chicks when even they themsselves have changed their story more than once, first to "we're sorry" and then last week said "it was all just a joke", but I won't ask you to be specific on how you agree with someone who can't get their own story straight. I'll just trust that you're in the right... somehow. I also won't ask you to explain how your sister justifies how attacking civilians in the WTC is attacking our government when if it was true there is no such thing as attacking civilians at all and that Bin Laden himself says in his holy war tyrades to "kill any and all Americans whereever they are" and says squat about government, but I don't need to be able to understand since I can trust that you're simply right. I don't understand that even if the attacks were aimed at our government that our government has no business defending itself, I'll just trust that somehow you're correct and that I am wrong. I could have sworn that it was just regular business executives and not a single goverment employee falling on fire to their deaths at the WTC, but I guess I'm wrong or it's a forgivible miscalculation on the terrorist's behalf that is my responsibility as their target to understand and not misunderstand the validity in their acts.. as you rightfully suggest. I'm confused how to be happy for all the civilians in Iraq being released from purgatory when nobody has the right to save anyone no matter what, but feel safe knowing at least you have the answers and that's all that matters.
Anyway, it feels good to not disagree anymore, dispite being confused. It's preferable indeed.
I must admit, being wrong just ain't all that bad once you just face up to it.
Anyway I have no clue about beating a dead horse or where that phrase originated.
