I guess having someone who doesn't see things the way you do is a little too much.

I like hunting ok, but draw the line at shooting kids in the face, just where do you all stand? Jtapia it sounds like you'd defend shooting kids in the face over some sort of "castle" law? Looked like a single wide to me. Being pro hunting doesn't mean I support irresponsible gun ownership. How about that flag from the pro slavery Confederacy in the photo? Not racist? Respect? Start using my username.

If I were trolling I'd start posting controversial threads, like some vids of the corespondents dinner last night, as it is I mostly reply when I think you all are out of line, and I happen to think the condoning of shooting kids in the face is out of line.

Where is the picture confeerate flag? I went back to look to see if I missed it in the photo, but I can't see it. Where is it? Does anyone else see it?

Not trolling then why the line about shooting some kid in the face? Where did anyone suggest that shooting a kid in the face was acceptable?

Do you think any of else support shooting an innocent kid in the face? Of course, no one on here supports that.

BTW, you earn respect - it is just not given. Want my respect, then post in a constructive way even if you disagree with me.

So, here is how you start earning my respect - point out to me where the confederate flag is in the photo and if you can't then admit that you lied just to make a point that didn't exist.

If you can point it out then I will thank you and agree that I don't think that flag is appropriate.

It's obvious Pogo would have a problem with self reliance. He's a liberal. Self reliant people don't need big governments to tell them what to do.

The part about shooting kids in the face is emotional rhetoric designed to put you on the defensive by trying to tie you to something ugly. It doesn't matter if it's true or not -- the whole point is to drag you off topic and away from things like facts and logic, where Pogo doesn't have a chance.

Let's see if he responds to my request about the flag. I honestly don't see it in the pic so if he can point it out then great. But if he can't and doesn't admit he lied about it or simply doesn't respond to my request then it is obvious that he is a troll.

Pogo is truly a curiosity. A person who claims to be an avid firearm hunter, but yet posts rabid anti-gun posts and talks about thing like "semi auto converted carbines."

He posts pictures of Laotians cutting up meat they killed, and then posts frothing diatribes against self reliance.

He claims to champion tolerance, but yet spews stereotypes, prejudice, and hatred in post after post.

He claims to have an open mind, but then tells people they're not allowed to produce facts that contradict him.

On some posts he sounded British-educated, and used some English spellings and phrases like "at university." That suddenly stopped when I pointed it out. But there's a remarkable language inconsistency in the postings. Sentence structure and syntax varies from post to post. Some posts use well-constructed sentence structure, and others are a jumble. Some posts are flawlessly spelled, and others are full of misspellings of even comon words. Some posts are somewhat calm and intellectual, and others are frothing, foaming emotional rants. Use of particular phrases, metaphors, and intellectual tactics vary from post to post. But interestingly, these inconsistencies have patterns that clump together and don't mingle with each other.

Everyone has good and bad days. But people are generally remarkably consistent in their language patterns, in spite of mood changes. With practice and experience, recognizing someone by his writing becomes almost as easy as recognizing his voice on the phone.

Then there's the issue of suddenly changing usernames and attempting to be somene else until caught. Didn't get much of an explanation there, did we? People generally do that because they either got kicked off by the moderator, want to erase links between one forum and another, or were using someone else's username and he originator wants it back. Pogo eventually admitted the change and didn't get kicked off, so the first possibility doesn't apply here.

So whether it's a pangolin or a civet, I smell a rat. Personally, i suspect that we're actually dealing with 2-3 friends who thought it'd be fun to create a persona and take turns trolling a hunting forum.

CVC there is no confederate flag and the guy is standing at the bottom of a stairway, no single-wide or double wide has a second floor. Something a silly as the truth has never stopped pangocat from saying it.

As for shooting a kid, depends on how threatening the situation was. If a 15 year old has a gun in my face and I also have mine and I feel that he will use it....sorry everyone.......
I agree with ex, the whole shooting a "kid" in the "face" is designed to make someone look bad when the answer is an affirmative, but a gun in a hand is the great equalizer. A gun don't care how old the finger pulling the trigger is and I would be just as shot when that finger is 15 years old as I would be when that finger is 50 years old.

You'll have to excuse me, I don't read rants that are personal.

Above is the flag and it looks like a single wide by the size and the height off the ground, but I've never seen one with a door at the end, maybe a converted shipping container. Usually if I reference something not generaly understood I'll link to it. The link was back where I double posted.

Good grief Pogo, YOU'RE the one that posted that garbage NOT ANYONE HERE ON BGH!!!!

You stated that someone here posted that flag, were in fact you did. I don't follow nutjob links and that's obviously one of yours.

You made it sound like that garbage was posted by one of us here on BGH and that we condone that type of behaviour. No one here has ever condoned or supported irresponsible handling of firearms.

You don't know us at all, do you?

I came back to read all of Expatriate's post.

Yo expat, maybe I'm bipolar eh? You know it's pretty easy for a real mod to see if posts are from the same internet connection or not. Never claimed to be someone I'm not. There can be other reasons to change user names. Mod is ok with it, never pretended it isn't me. I'm going to start using more Englishisms punter.

I'm not anti self reliance or anti gun, just don't like the posing and false macho stuff. I mean the place I hang out the most ubiquitous rifle is an AK and yes it does keep firing when you pull the trigger. No one over there runs around pretending they're Rambo. Guns are just another tool like a map or a phone, not some kind of ticket to "freedom". The posts of the newsclips where the hero saves the day just seem a little over the top. Next thing you know you've got ma parker, as in the link, firing her shotgun into people peeing in the dark.

I used to be an agnostic about gun control, Who cares, had nothing to do with me. I'm a good citizen, police wave every time they go past my house. No one's looking to take my guns. I sure wouldn't mind if people who put up signs about shooting people had someone come by and see if they were sane. Sure wouldn't mind a requirement for a gun safety course either. Out of all the gun owners I know almost none of them even hunt, I mean good grief.

Cheerio Chap
