Foofie and Miller are one person, especially since Miller isn't around that much any longer. Remarkable!


Go back into long term memory. During the run up to the 2008 election, when Hillary was still the presumptive candidate, I believe I remember that she was posting positive thoughts about Hillary. I Foofie voted for McCain.

When I first came on board, she did mention that she was Sephardic, I believe. I believe she also alluded to a belief in her faith (most Sephardim are orthodox). I, as you know, am an atheist, even though of Ashkenazi background.

But, believe what you want. Miller is still on threads.

Did it leap out at you when you first encountered it?

Have you ever had it in a face to face conversation?

That's assuming that you think Setanta's right, CJ. That's not a wise thing to jump to.

Why do you come here specifically to mess up Joe's thread, Set?

@Foofie,
Just yesterday afternoon, you were asking who Miller is, as though you were uncertain--suddenly you have detailed knowledge of Miller, and that detailed knowledge keeps expanding, now to include Miller's point of view during the presidential primaries.

Are you making reference to the poster that is female and sometimes makes posts about health policy, and related issues?


In under an hour, you went from being uncertain who Miller is, to knowing where she lives and what her putative ethnic background is--now you're adding a knowledge of Miller's political point of view when yesterday afternoon you weren't even sure who Miller is.

You're just not keeping the tissue of lies together, Miller--i'ts going to pieces on you.

It is called a "senior moment." I have no excuse for getting older.

You might be dealing with Foofie Identity Confusion (FIC). It was endemic amongst many in NYC in the 1950's, especially in the outer boroughs.

I know how we can settle this:
Foofie and I and Frank and Thomas and Tsar and whoever else would like to be there, will all meet at the Pan in New York.
We will made arrangements for Miller to post us on Able2Know during the meet-up.

Foofie and she will have a conversation. He can use my iPHone.

Thrilling.

What's your schedule like this summer, foofie?

The simple way is to send Robert Gentel a message to confirm that Miller and I are not the same person. He is an Administrator, I thought.

I don't do meet-ups. I have been asocial for decades. I live in a small world of some acquaintances, and no friends. I think this orientation is the result of either downward mobility, or poor parenting exacerbated by early parental divorce, or perhaps even a degree of high functioning autism (not Asperger's).

When I die, you will find me in a veteran's cemetary. I do not believe Miller is a veteran.

Correct. I subscribe to the theory that most friends are just "friendly competitors." For example, two women are friends, and then one of the women has a daughter that gets a scholarship to a big named university. That is a critical point. The friendship can whither at that point, since the basis of the friendship was really the women both having daughters that were sort of peers. However, when one daughter "laps" the other daughter, the correct face saving maneuver is to let the friendship whither.

Plus, I find most friends to ultimately show themselves to be "false friends." I think that is caused by the society we now live in. Self-centered, entitled, Machiavellian. This might be a result of liberal egalitarian brain washing? How can one trust someone that doesn't know their place in society? Look on this forum. Who the heck is humble??????????? I think a few people are. A few women. Men? I'll look harder. You might be humble. So be wary. The wolves love humble people.
