<<<Most of the Ranger fans who come here have neither. When you combine that with a homer board, it's not pretty.>>>
I think you find that on most boards. It seems that most fans who go to another team's board, do so out of spite for someone trolling theirs and making idiotic comments. Some, we have ours and you have yours, go to another's board just to stir the pot. I realize that.
This is the first time I've ever been on the Angels board, and I'll have to admit that I was surprised that most of you guys are no different than we are in Texas. We're fans of our respective teams and we love baseball. Enough said. I had a very bad opinion of Angel's fans from the ones who have come trolling, and I imagine it is the same for you. Halojake and a couple of others do not do justice to what I'm seeing as the majority of your fanbase.
We'll, of course, root for our respective teams. There's nothing wrong with that. That's sports and competition. Good luck (except when you play us).
When marlins return for their next homestand we will see fans holding posters of Guillen hugging Castro or even worse. Guillen's stupid remarks will NOT go away but will always be the first thing fans think of when they see him...not just Cubans but fans in general.
Guillen is an embarrassment and will be removed. Shows how thoughtless this guy can be...dumber than dumb. Guillen is toast.
--I think you find that on most boards. --I think you'll find it on all board. If you talk smack on another teams board, you're going to get hammered. If you talk imbecilic smack, you're going to get really hammered.
So far that's been most Ranger fans.
I truly Welcome intelligent, respectful life from the Ranger board. There are not many of those posters here.
<<< There is no right or wrong answer it is purely objectionable.>>>
You could not be more wrong. There is definately a right and a wrong. You're the only thing objectionable.
<<<People of Cuba love Castro...>>>
I guess they love him so much they risk their lives over and over and over trying to escape from the island.
<<<...he has given them what the rich did not...>>>
Yeah, like a marked increase in poverty and oppression.
<<< ...the rich.of Cuba fled to the United.States...>>>
I guess all those refugees from Cuba, living in near poverty in Little Havana in Miami, have their riches stowed away and invested in mutual funds.
<<<...blinded by your supposed patriotic duty of upholding American values.>>>
That's right bozo. I will uphold American values because they have created the most free society in history.
You continue to amaze me. Every time you open your mouth (or get on your keyboard), you prove yourself to be a fool, and yet you cannot resist the opportunity to be that fool.
>>Yeah, like a marked increase in poverty and oppression.<<
This isn't correct. There has been a marked decrease in poverty in Cuba since Castro took over, although oppression has increased (not that Cuba was particularly free prior).
Cuba's definitely poor and their development has been much less than it would be had the Castro regime instituted market reforms after the fall of the Soviets (or had the non-communist elements of the revolution had more influence), but I'm not sure you realize just how dire the poverty level was prior to Castro.
The vast majority of rural residents lived in palm frond huts and there was almost no electricity or running water outside the cities. Malnourishment, illiteracy and starvation were rampant. Cuba had a relatively high GDP, but nearly all of it went to people at the very top of society or to American sugar or fruit firms.
>>I will uphold American values because they have created the most free society in history.<<
I think you'd be surprised at just how many countries are at least as free, if not more so, than in the US.
