so if I had picture of a hamburger as my signature, I am obvioussly opening up my self to attack from PETA?

again, you made the comment ...

I was talking about Alou pissing on his hands?


a hamburger is a pretty neutral image. if you put a picture of a veal calf confined all its life in a wood box, yeah, i'm sure you'd be opening yourself up to attack from PETA.

the point is that this is a BASEBALL forum. why post your political views? dubya's presidency is obviously a hot button issue. about 1/2 the country hates his guts and 1/2 think he's a saint. so chances are, you're gonna offend about 1/2 the people in here by putting up your political propaganda. so as i said before, you're only opening yourself up to attack, so why do it?

False analogy. Your Bush sig is making a clear political statement where a hamburger would not be. Attacks are not necessary(how much of an attack was it really?), but disagreements are to be expected...

blah blah blah you already know that you're a smart (sometimes coughjavylopezcough) guy ;-D

It's funny how John Kerry and the topic of urination end up in the same thread. 8-o
