LOL.  Not true.  This was your mistaken grammar: <<I mean, Ivy League degree or not, right now you're still just a housewife at the end of the day, just like me.>>

The correct pronoun at the end of that sentence was "I."  Here you go with the sentence corrected:  I mean, Ivy League degree or not, right now you're still just a housewife at the end of the day, just like I am.

And the sentence is also wholly incorrect because you and I are not alike.  You're not rich, for starters.

Was that grammar mistake you made really the only take-away from all that was discussed?  More likely, with the pages and page here of your posturing, that little detour was just an admission of error.  Thank you.

I adopted hispanic children, from LA (2 successful, one failed as birth mother reclaimed at last minute, I had no problem with that. We have also had a failed adoption (AA) in the Tx US (goodness all around)

I really did just LOL. Mostly because despite your quite vocal claims to the contrary, we all know you are far more trailer park than country club, Thardon. It's like Mammy said in Gone With the Wind, no matter how hard you try, you can't turn a sow's ear into a silk purse. And you, despite all the silky posturing, are a sow's ear, not a silk purse.

I admit no grammatical error. But since you brought it up and we're discussing admission of errors, you can read the links I previously provided and admit your error in calling misogyny in the Catholic church "my" issue as opposed to a rather well known and hotly debated topic in Catholocism for the past century... That would be a lovely start.

LA??  Latin America??   So why didn't you just agree when I said specifically that you are in fact very much the beneficiary of the Roman Catholic Church's policy against abortion?  You cannot be believed.  You've made up so much here and when asked a direct, specific question, you still lie.  You are unbelievable. 

And from that point of mendacity, you bash the honest Catholics here because we are anti-abortion?  Yet, by your admission now your adopted children would not even be alive but for the Catholic Church.

It takes all kinds.

You're exactly correct, Chestnut. My stepdaughter is enrolled in college. She just earned a solid 4.0 during her first semester. We couldn't be more proud of her! :)

Satanbaby, why do you think you are entitled to the financial details of Marla's family? I mean, seriously --- why is that even a question?

Who said I did? I simply asked a question, pertaining to this thread.

Yes, my Cafe Mocha was delicious. I'm stone cold sober, Thardy. Just calling it like I see it.
