I hate that! Feel better soon.

Keep treated for pain, but keep moving. Being still is the worst.

Thanks, Foxy. I’m going to have to make a big TONY DAY sign and put it on my bathroom mirror which is about 8’ wide. I should be able to spot it there!

I do believe that not voting is the right of a free people just as is voting. [For many lacking knowledge, I wish they wouldn’t vote!] However, I don’t endorse that strategy this year. If one chooses, the most effective way to demonstrate your distaste, is to show up and write in the name of an icon [Pres. Reagan or, perhaps, William F. Buckley]

That sends a message.

I hope he does ! I wonder if Tony realizes how much of a sacrifice it is for me to listen to “BOR’s” show.

I dislike BOR intensely, BOR considers FR a hate site......

But, I will listen to Tony... and offer it up for "Lent"!

Complaining all you want is yet another mark of a free society. We are a nation of malcontents. Which is fine, that is why our ancestors came here and why people still come here.

HC,

I never called people who disagreed with me racists. I’ve been defending them against such charges. As I mentioned on the show, there’s a ground that gets us together again. I’m not the type to drive my friends away — or to put words in their mouths. Just thought you’d appreciate the correction.

Always gently correcting [and sometimes editing]. 8)

Congratulations on the William F. Buckley award, Tony. [I just learned of this today.] I can’t think of anyone more deserving and I am sure that it will please Mr. Buckley who must be smiling down from on high at all the nostalgia at his passing. But, he was truly a “Vox Clamantis in Deserto” for conservatism for many, many years. A brilliant mind and a voice that was made for oratory. He will be missed.

Thanks, Fox. Bill was one of the kindest, most generous people I have ever met. He took delight in finding and nurturing talent — which made him literally the father of modern conservatism — and he delighted in encountering and debating people with opposing views. He helped dozens and dozens of writers and thinkers build careers, and his proteges ranged from Gary Wills on the left (he began as a conservative) to the new generation of writers at National Review. People know a lot about his intellect, but the world is filled with intelligent people. His kindness, decency and humility truly set him apart. An amazing man.

Which is exactly why the words were so hurtful.

You called me, directly, on the phone, a “xenophobe with my hair on fire” live on the air on one of your shows, about three weeks before you left for the WH. I’m pretty sure that implies I’m a racist.

If fact it was, I thought, so out of character as I knew it, that something was on your mind.

As a big fan, and a proud Snowflake, I was devasted that you did so and a few folks here might remember how shocked I was that you would do so. It took me I while to forgive you, but I have, and I had almost forgotten, too.

I used it as a tagline here, for quite a while as a badge of honor, against those who would call us names rather than make their case.

I understand why you wouldn’t want to remember. but I remember how devastating those comments were to me personally coming from someone I admired, and I was mortified.

If they came from others who we would expect it from, I’m sure I would have laughed it off.

One slip of the brain and tongue, does not a person make. If I thought you meant it, trust me, I wouldn’t be here.

So If I can take the insult and forgive, I’m sure you can as well, even if we continue to disagree.

Hi, HC. I know better than to get in the middle of a family feud, but I cannot resist. You remind me of my first wife [who just happens to also be my current wife!] If I err, or am perceived to have erred, that error is filed away and brought up at appropriate times. [Like when I am getting a big head.] Women are reluctant to let stuff go. Men on the other hand get abused so often, and so badly, that it is not etched into their memories.

Now let’s purse the phrase “xenophobe with...hair on fire”. “Xenophobe” means, among other things, a fear of the foreign. It does not equate, to me, with the very pejorative term “racist”. I would admit to being a xenophobe myself to the extent that I am fearful for what this massive invasion of illegal foreigners is doing to our country and culture.

“Hair on fire” means, to me, behaving with great passion. Again, I would say I admit to exhibiting great passion in opposing illegal immigration.

So beauty and insults are often in the eye of the beholder. I am on your side on the immigration issue and do not feel Tony was, or intended, to insult you. The greater issue for those of us opposing illegal immigration is to emphasize that our opposition is to the illegality, not the immigration.

To quote the great philosopher, Obama, we were friends before this discussion and we will be friends after this discussion.

Thanks for the note. If I said that, shame on me. I’m pretty sure I never said such a thing directly — but in any event, your taking offense means I blew it.

Thanks for the reminder that words count.

It is good of you to say what you’ve said.

I learned from it as well.

God has a way of taking such mini moments and using them as training for us to handle future, bigger, more important events.

It is impossible to do a live show and not say something wrong. Impossible. I just happened to be there at the time.

I’m lucky that way! /s

Only those we care about can hurt us, so in a backward sort of way, its a complement??

P.S. FFV, you can come out now.

HC, you should have seen the one I deleted. 8)

Dueling dictionaries? Interesting. But, I am more of a thesaurus guy.

I believe I was there. Well, not there, but listening.

Lastly, I had to admit that "NUNYA" hit a bit of a nerve. "Private Replys" are for private discussions. Posts on the Thread are open for public comment. I have a hard time being silent if my friend is being criticized for his behavior. Now, if you want to criticize his opinions, have at it. That said, I am off to read and relax.

Good night to you, my FRiend.

Yes, you are right about the private replies, part.

Funny, you’ve made my point for me. When I spoke to your friend, and I’d like to think mine in a virtual sort of way, that was my reaction.

If you want to criticize my opinions, fine.

Telling me about how “women are” isn’t exactly aimed at my opinions, and didn’t exactly make me feel warm and fuzzy either, and only served to throw gasoline on the fire.

BTW, “nunya” was said and meant in a light hearted fashion, a fond memory of a marvelous friend. I obviously missed the mark and apologize.

Gee this has been a week full of lessons, many of which I could easily have done without.

OK, HC, I can see we both got off into a place we did not intend.

I now see what I thought was a funny remark was not funny to you. And what you meant as a funny remark for me was "misunderinterpreted" at this end. [A failing I have grown more prone to with the passage of time.]

The lesson could be neither one of us is as funny as we thought! 8)

TS is our friend and is fond of all the SnowFlakes. [Well, maybe not the one who keeps calling him a traitor!] 8) As you wrote earlier, if we weren’t friends, we wouldn’t waste time fussin’ at each other. With gasoline threatening to go to $4 a gallon, I do not want to waste it by throwing it on a fire.

To steal a line from Tony, who stole it from Obama, who stole it from....: “Words count.” But, then so does context and syntax. Dog bites man vs Man bites dog. Same words. Was that FReeper smiling when they wrote that sarcastic post or gritting their teeth. Hard to know sometimes.

But, today is Sunday. A day of repentance and reflection. So, with that in mind I offer my apologies to you for those words of mine which aggravated rather than edified. Now it is time to put this behind us and return to our “warm and fuzzy” friendship. Well, “warm”, at least. Not sure what “fuzzy” means?!
