Pink? You guys probably don't watch rugby and won't have seen the Stade
Francais strip. Here is a picture of the SF forwards:
Well, if you were by chance a woman named Bill, I'd bet you are a
Agree 100%. Don't know any women (that I know of) that have/had breast
cancer, but I've lost both parents and a close friend to other forms
of cancer so it's a worthwhile endeavor if it contributes in any way
to the damned disease.
As I saw this thread this morning it was somewhat surreal.
Like WAY WAY WAY to many people in this world I have friends that have had
cancer and breast cancer more specifically. In matter of fact yesterday my
sister started chemo after having a mastectomy this summer. That coupled
with being a dad with 3 daughters, if in fact some of the profits go to
breast cancer research I am in.
If they are just pink hammers like the pink Red Sox hats I have to see at
the ball park. I am out.
What do they get off the tool? A buck, maybe. There is lot better ways to
contribute to that cause without buying crappy tools that invite ridicule.
This whole thing of covering everything with ribbons for the sickness of the
month is tiring and ultimately desensitives everybody.
I am tired of getting hit up for money at every turn. I don't really care
what month it is. I give where and when I think it is appropriate. Not what
is trendy or the current publicity program.
My sister is a dog trainer who has trained a bunch of service dogs. Her own
daughter has seizures and she trained her dog to alert to the seizures. It
is something I can relate to and I will give money to support service dogs.
I don't give a damn about pink hammers.

I had no idea that this sweeth nothing guy was even talking. I killfiled him
a long time ago as he has nothing positive or interesting to say. I merely
pointed out that selling pink hammers is a strange way to do things. And I
also pointed out I think there are better ways of doing it. I also pointed
out how I do my charitable thing. If that offended a mental midget, so be
it. Nuff said.
Feeble try at best. It wasn't what you said, it was how you went about
saying it. And you said it about as unthinkingly as you could without
breaking a sweat.
You're too stupid to realize that people are smarter than you think
and you're not too brilliant for them. It just goes to show how much
of an asshole you really are.
Unreal. I have been called an asshole by somebody who has nothing good to
say about anybody. I suppose I should not be surprised. I guess talking
about charity and pink hammers was too much for you. How did you become so
bitter at the world?
Are you actually attempting to have an intelligent conversation with
me? If so, then do it without the "poor innocent me" act and
acknowledge that you phrased your comment on your choice of charities
without much consideration. If you can't do that or simply aren't able
to comprehend what you said was offensive in a number of ways, then
I'm not the least bit interested in "discussing" anything with you.
I'm not the only one that has deemed your response as offence.
Consider that when you reply.
That's my honest, uncritical response. It's the best I'm willing to
do. Respond as you choose.
That would be an act of futility. I have seen you whine and bitch ad
infinitum. I have no interest of engaging in an endless babble fest with
you. A bitter old man is upset with me. I couldn't care less.
I spoke to you honestly without any cursing or attack and you choose
to maintain the innocent, offended approach. Guess I was naive in
expecting anything else.
I pity people like you. You prefer to hide behind a shroud of
deception and innocence when you should realize that you are the only
one that thinks you're getting away with it.
When someone says something ignorant when they should have shown more
consideration, that makes me angry and then I'm a god damned prick.
Hope that floats your boat.
There's a world of difference between having a big, foul mouth and
displaying an attitude of ignorance like Lee Michaels did. Of course
you can accuse me of being ignorant too, but it's certainly not the
same type of ignorance. Thing is, I know the difference. Michaels
obviously doesn't or just doesn't care which is worse.
You're accusing me of trying to stifle free speech, but then you're
admonishing me for swearing at someone. Make up your mind Steve, you
can't have it both ways.
Sounds a bit juvenile to me, and even kinda ignorant. Where's *your*
Both ways what? I admonished you for being fouled mouthed; use that information
as you see
fit. I never threatened to punch you out or somehow "prevent" you from speaking
My understanding is that diplomacy works far better than violence...
