    I have been gone for awhile. I am pleasantly surprised at FMFs recovery, and his return to the forums. While he can be abrasive as hell, I do enjoy watching the debates that fire off.
    Hope there is no long standing damage from the accident.
    So if we need a debate here, are we glad he is back, and does he offer realistic views on the topics he choses to start, or join?

    I wouldn't be so quick to raise my hopes regarding FMF if I were you.

    No.
    FMF's debating technique is to jump in and talk about oranges instead of the apples being discussed and declare himself the winner because oranges are not apples.

    "Apples are red".

    FMF: "No, oranges are not red"

    "Dude I'm not talking about oranges"

    FMF: "Well you inferred oranges are red and they're not"

    "No I didn't"

    FMF: "Oranges are orange. I win".

    Okay; that's it. I've been wanting to do this ever since the "What if no WWI?" thread

    FMF: It's fascinating that you feel the need to re-hash the apples and oranges debate. Is this unhealthy fixation you seem to have with fruit the slightest bit disconcerting to you? It certainly vexes the sensibilities of the rational posters here most discommodiously.

    whodey: tax subsidies given to the growers of apples and oranges are obviously just another way the statists maintain their power by taxing and spending our children into fruitless submission

    generalissimo: Apples are Apples. Oranges are oranges. That is obvious. The fact that FMF disagrees does not change this and is unsurprising given his lack of debating skills as shown over and over again in this forum.

    adam warlock: Thanks to Israel, the long suffering people of Gaza have no oranges because Israel burned all of its orange trees.

    Come to think of it, it's also Israel's fault that Gaza has no apples.

    Shame on Israel and apple growers everywhere for supporting Israel!

    bill718: Republicans don't give people enough apples or oranges. Therefore, the people are hungry and yet the Republicans still think that they are correct in not giving people apples and oranges just because they're poor. Obviously, Republicans are wrong and yet they are too stubborn to admit it. 😏

    smw6869: Gumming your plums may not make someone an apple or orange, but it would definitely make him a fruit
