I never said you were soliciting funds for the use of OPMS. I said your were soliciting funds. And you are soliciting funds. Essentially, this is a falsehood you created.

With regards to these phrases?

?Put the education mafia in jail!?
?Blow up the schools of education!?
?OPMS is nothing but empty list making.?

The reason you do not understand their meaning is that you do not understand the english language. These are figures of speech. You have a technical grasp of english but you don?t understand english. I?d even venture to say that you don?t understand *language*, like Lou, but I would have to witness you making these same language mistakes in your native tongue to confirm this. As often and as constantly as you make these mistakes with english, I suspect that you make them in any language, even your own. What we have here is yet another autistic like failure to communicate, but this time with prose. I work with many people from India and this is a common issue. My suggestion to you is the same I make to them, read more english literature, especially poetry, and understand it.

This last couple of weeks has been nothing short of fantastic in terms of insights I have gained. First the breakthrough with Joe. All this time I thought he just didn?t like me. I still do, but I realized he didn?t even understand me, and not because I used the wrong words, but because he doesn?t understand the context of art. I wasted a lot of time replying to his snideness, and Lou?s. And now you, and this absurd notion that people need ps&g to understand what they are saying. They understand just fine. It is you that don?t understand. And naturally, because of you don?t understand, you don?t realize this.
