    Mr. Smith,
    You seem like a interesting man, just as flawed as the next person. yet knowledgeable on many other things. I don’t intend to bash and what not like many of the other people who have posted on some of your comments, just wish to say “it will be cool to meet you” and “don’t let them get to you”….

    Mr. Smith,

    Are you the same person using the “James Smith” in the Disqus comment system? The profile for that account points to this site.

    Just curious because based on this blog you seem to be an intelligent worldly fellow. but the behavior of the indicated account is more like a deranged lunatic.

    • March 26, 2012 at 1:24 pm

      “Deranged Lunatic”? Because I tell the truth? Because I show that some people are liars and cowards, saying things from the safety of their computer they would never dare say to my face?

      What I do is expose them for what they are. How is that being a lunatic? If you or anyone doesn’t like the truth, that’s a personal problem and you should learn to deal with it.

      FYI, I have made the offer of a free flight to meet me dozens of times. Only two have ever accepted. One didn’t show up and I had to collect the insurance, a tiresome and lengthy process. The other did show up spewed his uninformed hate and obscenity-filled statements and immediately regretted it. I am exactly who and what I say I am. I know that separates me from others, but I have my integrity and that’s far more than most. What do you have? Nothing but the ability to toss out insults to those you don’t know.

      When people accuse me of using insults, I point out that I am only making statements of observed facts. Then I ask them to prove that anything I have said is not true. To date, not one person has ever been able to do that. Should I add your name to that list?

  3. March 26, 2012 at 1:27 pm

    I’ll repeat what I emailed:

    “Nobody sane will meet you because you appear to be a deranged lunatic”.

    • March 26, 2012 at 1:30 pm

      And you’re an ethically challenged jerk that avoids answering direct questions. Again, what have I said that is not true?

      It appears you are behaving exactly as I predicted. Why am I not surprised?

      Have I exposed you for what you are? Yes, an arrogant coward that is far out of his depth morally, mentally, and physically.

      • March 26, 2012 at 1:33 pm

        what the hell are you talking about? When did I say anything you said isn’t true?

        I am an arrogant coward because I would rather discuss differences of opinion than fly out and fight a maniac?

      • March 26, 2012 at 1:44 pm

        I asked you to tell me anything that I have said that is not true. Nor have I invited you to fly anywhere or to fight anyone.

        I don’t invite anyone to fight. I invite them to say to my face what they say in posts. The fact that none accept is them admitting they are ashamed of what they said and would not talk that way to my, or anyone’s, face. So when I say they are ethical cowards, that is simply stating the facts as they have demonstrated them.

        Personally, I never post anything about anyone I would not say to them personally.

        Yes, you are an arrogant coward because you do ignore direct questions and you read into things what you want them to say instead of what they really say.

        Again, what have I posted that is not true? Please answer that simple question.

  4. March 26, 2012 at 1:45 pm

    I never said anything you said isn’t true, you’re just an asshole.

    • March 26, 2012 at 1:57 pm

      I’m an asshole for telling the truth? And you said I was deranged! What is it about the truth that upsets you so much?

      You admit I haven’t said anything that’s untrue, but it must really bother you to read it. Tell me, who is forcing you to read it? Let me know and I’ll ask them to stop. It’s wrong to force people to read things they don’t like.

  5. March 26, 2012 at 2:01 pm

    You’re right. no ones forcing me to read your posts. goodbye and good luck.

    • March 26, 2012 at 2:23 pm

      You seem to be obsessed with them anyway. Maybe it’s you that was “forcing” you to read them?

      In any case, I’m satisfied that you were unable to name even one thing I said that was not true. You didn’t even challenge my statements that all I have been doing is showing people to be what they are. I use their own posts to show that they are pathetic losers that hide behind the internet to say things that do nothing but use untrue insults because it’s the only way they can feel better about themselves.

      Again, it’s “one’s”, not “ones. ” Slow learner, are you?

    Hey there, Thank you for this awesome blog post! I must save this website. Thank you.

    The problems in the world are not caused by religion. It is caused by pride. When one person or people are convinced they are better than another or believe that their beliefs, traditions, or way of life is so much better than everyone else’s they FORCE their beliefs & way of life upon another. They demean the other group of people and see them as less important. This allows them to kill, steal, & enslave them. Religion is the only thing that says there is a God, and our rights come from him, not learned men.

    • January 28, 2013 at 5:33 pm

      You are right to a degree, but it is religion that causes one group to not only believe they are superior but that all others must accept their belief system, too.

      There is no god and never has been. For over five decades I have aksed for any proof of any god. To date no proof has ever been given and the question is usually evaded.

      Most of the problems of the world have been caused by religion. Think of the crusades, the inquisition, the dark ages, the witch burnings, the restrictions on learning, free speech, instilling guilt and shame into children, and the wars fought in the name of religion.

      More recently, think of family planning clinic bombings, oppression of gays and non-believers, murders of doctors and homosexuals, imposition of religious beliefs by force of law, and illegal use of public funds to promote particular religions.

      Mankind will never truly be free until the black yoke of religion is lifted by the clear light of truth and rational thinking.

    you’re a fucking piece of shit old man, sad deranged lunatic that threatens anyone who disagrees with you.

    • July 26, 2013 at 12:04 pm

      See the comments I get from the keyboard commandos when they are hiding behind their fake IDs and, in this case, also a fake email. Add to that the security of the internet and they feel safe posting things they would never dare say to my face.

      I have offered to pay their way, including this PoS, to where I am so they can try talking like that when they cannot hide. They always have declined because they are cowards and liars.

      I would love to have this one in front of me. But, like the rest, he’ll hide and cower and never have the testicular fortitude to put his slimy skin in the game.

      You’re website is baloney!

      • April 14, 2014 at 2:21 pm

        It’s “your”. Your education is baloney. Oops, you already knew that. Your email, baloney@baloney.com is also a lie. So is your poorly spoofed IP address of 46.23.73.25

        Cowards like you have to lie, even if not very well, to conceal from others exactly who they are and how astoundingly stupid you are.

        Thank you for showing the courage to criticize under an anonymous name.

  10. April 17, 2014 at 10:28 am

    Another coward that doesn’t know the difference between “your” and “you’re”. As if his juvenile comment and fake email of fuckuou@fuckyou.com was not enough to reveal his cowardice and stupidity.

    Keep hiding, you’ll be safer that way. Face me personally and things will be a lot different for you forever afterwards.

    I see I am not the first to find your behavior disgusting

    • May 30, 2014 at 11:42 am

      That’s your opinion. As always unsupported by any facts. Well, there is the fact that you despise the truth and those that use it.

      I am sure that I am not the first to find you determinedly dumb and a pathetic example of a human being. I suggest you obey the biblical imperative to “Go forth and multiply thyself.”

    Sir,

    I was reading your comments over on Greta Christina’s blog until she banned you from the thread on political correctness. I have to say that I nearly did a spit-take from the combination of your saying how the politically correct are trying to remove words from the language, Greta’s censoring of 3 of your 4 examples in that comment, and then the next guy’s comment where he tells you that you are wrong about the politically correct trying to censor words, a comment he must have posted before Greta got around to censoring your comment.

    Thank you for saying things I was thinking as I read the post.

    Len Koz

    • October 16, 2015 at 2:11 pm

      Thanks for the kind words. I hope you appreciate the irony of her denying censorship even as she does it. FYI, I have challenged her to prove anything I posted is not true. I recommend that you do NOT hold your breath waiting for that to happen or even a reply.
