Yea, I dislike some, fine with others. This is not a cut and dry thing. Where it bugs me, its just a personal thing, so... Well, I don't really care.
TBR says2015-09-11T03:23:08.9121835Z
Someone who DOES care might change my mind, but I just don't see enough of an issue. Look forward to someone who can make a good case.

Actually, let me give an example. Repp tie. American men have been walking around ripping off the clubs and honers of British society for.. A very long time. Is this bad? Well, it is very American to be utterly arrogant, why not basically claim to be RAF?

Native Americans have culture?

@tajshar2k Why did he get banned so quickly?
tajshar2k says2015-09-13T01:46:44.2750939Z
Cause he was impersonating Brian I'm pretty sure.

@briantheliberal He challenged you to debate but it got removed XD
58539672 says2015-09-13T01:52:55.3868916Z
@tajshar2k didn't someone impersonate heli for like 2 weeks without getting banned?
tajshar2k says2015-09-13T01:54:31.3822707Z
Ya, but he was pretty lowkey about it. Briantheconservative made a forum all bout himself.
briantheliberal says2015-09-13T02:07:00.7095103Z
Yup I just found out about it. Pretty flattering if you ask me.

Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
