I won't give you a long speech about morals or maturity (or the lack there of by some individuals) I just will say that what you did was, absolutely and without question, the correct thing to do. Good job, you are not…"
"Iron sharpens iron." A place for men to impact each other by debate and exchange of ideas. This is a group where no ideas are off limits. If your motto is, "I never talk about politics or religion," this group is probably not for you. A "gym" for thinkers.See More
