    How many times do we have to go over this?

    IF you don't want to be shot dead by police,
    THEN don't carry a gun, making yourself a menace to public safety.

    At this point, anyone too stupid to understand that deserves what they get.

      @kenfromcanada Hahaha. I told donny p I would never respond to him again because of his racist remarks towards Jews. Since then he has TRIED to shame me by using my name, Karl's as well as about 6 aliases minimum. He has lost all control. I have reported him many times, but obviously 1010 does not monitor this forum. It does not take a genius to track the ip's. I do not worry as I know I have never acted like donny p. He is the one fool that many here want removed. He cannot even troll effectively.

      @Mark7 What happened to my Jewboy getting nailed post? It's not racist, Jesus is a Jew and was crucified with real nails.

      How can that be considered racist? Only a right wing conservative sitting in his bathroom watching midget porn on his i-pad would ever think of the Jewish Jesus nailed to a cross to atone for our sins as racist.

      Happy Easter anyway, may the Easter Bunny be good to all, although the fat Robby doesn't need more chocolate.

      @Mark7 Mark7 (the real one), the best way is to create a profile here, and always post using that. I'm going to start doing it myself, even though so far no one's posted using my alias so far. That I'm aware of, anyway. I don't read everything.

      @Mark7 You do not even know His real name for crying out loud! Our saviour was not Greek, yet you use a Greek name thus taking His name in vain. His name is Yahshua. You know, a Jewish name for a Jewish saviour? Duh. Do you ever get a single point correct in any of your posts? Emphatically no.

      As for the pagan event of Easter which has no basis in scripture IN ANY BIBLE, let me educate your further, son. Easter is the celebration of the Greek fertility goddess Aphrodite. The reason bunnies are used as a symbol for Easter is because of their "fertility".

      Look up both these little known facts. The historical proof cannot be denied. There is only one faith, the rest are religions and pagan/manmade, with Roman Catholic being the worst.

      Funny how you continue to hide under my name donny p. You are in need of serious help. Also get an education.

      ps...You are one pathetic individual without substance if you mock someone for their weight. You have so many issues to deal with of your own. So try shutting your useless pie hole until you come to grips with your own problems, son.

      @Mark7 Thanks again Bill. I should have done this a year ago.
