    Ernest, j warns you not to use profanity, and you go ahead in your next post when you write "I tought '[email protected]#' was an english very common word." I'm sure there are others who would like to see somebody else get kicked out, but please edit it before j sees your post.

    By the way, j, I like your avatar. But, don't you feel a vote for the Libertarian party is wasted or helps the candidate you hate the most get elected. Look at all the people who supported Nader in 2000. If they hadn't voted that way, Bush would have lost. I know Nader says that there's no difference between the donkeys and elephants, but there is a real difference between the policies Bush and Gore would have enacted.

    As everybody knows, nobody in US families, particulary not children, do swear BUT they all care about suits, ties ans style. [​IMG] Find another post where I sweared. I never swear because english is not my language. Is this forum so conservative, so puritan that when a french guy uses a common english word used by 99% of americans, he is straight away threatened to be kick off?

    Yes.





    It did come as a shock, especially since it was in your post title. No one has used a swear word in a post title before here on this forum.

    I think it is impossible to waste a vote, as it still is counted. It is just that the person you voted for may not have won. I doubt all the people who voted for Gore in the last election thought their vote was wasted. I vote for who I think is the best for the job, I will never vote for someone because they have the best chance to beat the person I hate the most. That is a radically unamerican sentiment if you ask me.

    I'd take it to a professional laundry and ask for a light press. If you wash it yourself, you will have to iron it yourself again, which, to put it mildly, has proven less than successful. Shine, on shirts or even on wool, is difficult to remove-it's a form of wear.

    If your shirts are restored, perhaps you'll have less need to use profanity. Good Luck.

    Politicians look at who else got votes. I vote libertarian all the time because, hopefully, whoever does get elected will say, "Hey, a whole slew of these darned Americans want to be free. Maybe I'd better enact some legislation that will please them so next time they'll vote for ME."

    1. On my more difficult shirts I will iron only the back of the collar and the front comes out looking just dandy -- sometimes with just a quick touchup. Lots of steam -- light touch.

    2. I pardon your French.

    3. I predict Bush will be re-elected. It seems Bush would have to be caught in a compromising position with a dead boy for the American people to do otherwise. Then, Bush will be able to complete bringing on the Armageddon. It is really the only explanation for his policies.

    I guess that would put this whole collar thing in perspective.

    You are right, i was desperate.

    Nerverytheless, Renault tip works very well, I manage to iron in 2 minutes... thanks.

    For the shiny fabrics, I find a tip one the web which is called to be guaranted : wet a rag with white vinegar and iron this this rag

    (Since no one can kick me off, I get to hijack the thread, so I will answer this.)

    This is good logic, but my own logic is more like HRHAndrew's: I will not vote for the lesser of two evils, for it is still a vote for evil. I have no delusions that my vote will count; I would probably lay 1000-1 odds that my state will go to Kerry. However, I still find fault with those who would vote for Bush because for all the evil he's done he is still "better" than Kerry. In my opinion, a vote for Bush is a vote against America and the ideals it was founded on. [Edit: For the record, I feel the same way about a vote for Kerry.] I'm not trying to start anything, (and if anyone wants to go at a political discussion in length I'd like it to move to the General forum), but a vote for a man (oligarchical group, more accurately) so venal and fascistic and with such contempt and disregard for people like my friends in the Army who are over killing and dying for Halliburton, Kellogg, Brown & Root, Raytheon, GE, and all the other war industry companies, is a vote for evil. Kerry offers no better choice in almost any way I can think of, in fact he may be worse. But to re-elect such a psychopath for whatever reason is itself insanity.

    /soapbox.

    P.s., by the way, anyone who thinks Bush cares whether you live or die or whether your kid gets sent to die for his cronies' profit, you are delusional and you should get that checked out. And from "his" (his handlers') track record and stated goals a Bush re-election poses the greatest threat of a draft, which may lead to internal strife you have never dreamed possible.

    ernest, j wrote " in fact, try to refrain from swearing at all." He was not just refering to using profanity in the topics, but to all responses. Next time, you'd get kicked off this board and then you used the f word once again.

    You're right. English must not be your second language.

    I excuse Ernest's profanity and we should just let him alone (J., I respect your request for Ernest to stop, but I think people have gone overboard berating him for his H & K tirade; I'm guessing the treatment he's received is partly based on his penchant for inflammatory posts).

    But, just to put my word in on politics: Bush will lose. He is already going negative in his ads, and this is going to wear thin. Negative campaigning more times than not loses elections. At least his father had a platform when he ran -- and went negative -- against Dukakis. Bush II doesn't have any positive platform yet, and I doubt he'll ever have one.
