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.

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.

Oh, okay, with your permission.  What country did you adopt your two children from?

Well, I'm sure Marla and her husband are, as well as perhaps us taxpayers. The kid may be eliigble for CHIP and WIC. Do you have a problem with that? I certainly don't.

Do you know any adoptees?

Santa, I've never seen a melt down on the 'net.  Hours and hours of bashing your and my Catholic religion.  But now we mention the Catholic policy against abortion and, well....this. Frown
