The work event I went to tonight was a single malt scotch tasting & seminar conducted by Yours Truly that was auctioned off in a fundraiser for Kindering School in Belleview
Come on, "Lady Justice". I'm waiting.
Sorry. I left right after my last post to go see "Magic Mike's" in BELLEVUE. FYI Ladies, the movie is definitely worth the price of admission!!!
Is that some back-handed way of yours of calling me a redneck or something?
No, if was a front-handed way. Anyone who lives in WA. would understand that. I will answer your questions, but you might want to consider this: I immediately called you out on not being from Seattle simply based on your posts...and I was right.
LOL! Oh good Lord man! Do you really think they would react to you personally? I'm suprised he or she didn't say, "I really like guns too! Hey, mind if I come by and see some of them sometime?" LOL! Cops are always laughing about pulling that crap with people and how people will just spill their guts.
I guess they deemed me harmless enough to grant me my concealed carry permit. Seems like the only person who has a problem with me owning a handful of guns is you.
Here is an example number one of your Eastern Washington 'reasoning.' The fact that they granted you a permit does not mean that they deem you "harmless." It merely means that they did not have a legal reason to deny you the license.
How, specifically, do I not "fit in"?
Example 2) At least one other person on the board asked why you felt the need to own an arsenal, so I doubt that I am the "only" one who has an issue with it.
Example 3) Still think I'm not worthy to live in the greater Seattle area?
I never interjected value into the discussion. That is a classic overly-emotional Eastern Washington response.
Example 4) What did I do that got you so upset?
More EW over emotionalism. All I did is say I didn't care for the way you think. You are the one going off. There are plenty of people on this board that I don't care for, but that doesn't mean they make me upset. I just scroll past their posts. I'm sure plenty of people have the same feelings toward me. As I stated in a prior post, you may be a quite personable guy in real life. However, the thought that you over-react like this AND have an arsenal is scary.
Example 5) Now I am expanding the scope beyond this thread. In the 'gun control' thread you proposed a faulty analogy (pencils mispell words=guns kill people) that Cedars and others objected to. Classic faulty EW gun 'logic.' Using that analogy, nothing that involves misuing an inanimate object could ever be illegal.
Example 6) In the 'gun control' thread and others, you tend towards making assertions like "everyone knows," "all people understand," etc. Say that when defending an argument in downtown Seattle, and you will have everyone objecting and demanding you correct and nuance your argument. Repeat the same argument in EW, and that vast majority of people will respond, "Yup!"
Example 7) I clearly stated that it was tragic that Williams was killed, but when you look at the whole picture, maybe it was understandable.
The grand jury AND the SPD Internal Affairs examined the whole picture. Follow your own advice regarding the 'whole picture.' I believe I stated quite clearly in a prior post that the following is what 'triggered' my statement that I don't like how you think. You didn't review the record to first familiarize yourself with the 'whole picture.' Then, you posted inaccuate information regarding the shooting to support your faulty conclusions, and when you got push-back, you tried to present yourself as an authority because you 'live' in Seattle. You wanted to come to a certain conclusion, so you just disregarded reality. EW.
Example 8) How do you know that the witnesses didn't embellish anything?
Yes. Those two women (late 30s, white, clearly middle-class) are surely that type who would lie under the pressures of grand jury testimony and cross-examination.
Example 9) Fact of the matter is, I wasn't there & neither were you. Perhaps you're a C.S.I. or forensic expert of some sort?
The classic retreat when an EW has been called on his/her argument=I wasn't there, but neither were you, so your conclusion is no more valid than mine. And, then an attack on my credentials. Dude...this screams Eastern Washington.
That's why we have the legal system, complete with forensic experts, C.S.I, accident reconstructionists, etc. The system said this shooting was unjustified, but apparently, you know more than they.
I hope all Eastern Washingtonian posters tune in to read your response.
Do you think I really care if other EW posters respond? I told them the same thing to their faces when I lived in Spokane for three years. (BTW, I lived in West Valley, UT before it was West Valley--Sugarhouse Congregation).
Maybe you don't like me because I believe in eye-for-an-eye justice?
I didn't buy it when "Jehovah" (OT) tried to sell it; I'm certainly not buying it from you. Again, someone who is emotional, has an arsenal, AND believes in eye-for-an-eye justice is disconcerting.
Hopefully, I have provided you the answers you requested. I will not respond any further to your requests.
