Forgive me if I appear to be advocating violence. I honestly don’t mean it that way, but I have to ask - at what point does it become appropriate to punch someone like this representative in the nose for such an insulting comment? That would have been acceptable in a different era, IMHO. Not advocating it, but it sure would seem appropriate for such an inappropriate response to an honest question.
“That would have been acceptable in a different era, IMHO.”
150 years ago, it would have been “pistols at dawn” time, if someone said this to another man. Now, I don’t thinking dueling is the best way to settle disputes, but people certainly were more polite back then.
...in earlier times, a "duel" perhaps would have been appropriate...Aaron Burr and Alexander Hamilton were involved in one...Hamilton lost.
