    What an idiotic remark! Of course, anonymity allows you to say this but all it really does is show you to be a nasty piece of work! There are foul pedophiles all over the world - for all we know you may be one! IDIOT!

    Sorry Gordo, I accidentally voted you down instead of up. I agree 100%. Chronic's just a troll and no more original than Hepatia.

    It seems “chronic” MAY be an American - “DUMBASS” is very much a US of A expression!

    The majority of US DNA was originally from Britain, so the yanks have much of the same DNA. It seems that Chronic was just insulting himself! Typical of a dumb redneck gun totin yank. Now the yanks are mostly Mexican and the prodominent language is Spanish!

    The Catholic church seems to suffer from a tiny minority of kiddy fiddlers across the globe and its got a lot to do with priest celibacy.

    I'm not even sure celibacy has much to do with it. It's not that the RCC has more paedophiles than other groups (though one might have hoped priests would behave better than ordinary men - apparently not). It's the fact the church spent so many years covering it up that is shocking, and worse allowed and enabled the culprits to abuse more children by moving them to new parishes where no one knew them. If they had hushed it up but forced the guilty to live in a monastery with no access to children it wouldn't seem nearly so bad.

    You are wrong viz:As of 2012, Hispanics and Latinos make up about 17% of the total U.S. population. The state with the largest percentage of Hispanics and Latinos is New Mexico at 47%. The state with the largest Hispanic and Latino population overall is California with over 14 million Hispanics and Latinos.

    Gordo, that may be so because I saw this reported somewhere a couple of years ago. I suppose California should have the largest latino population because it once belonged to Mexico.

    Do you think Chronic is trying to become Mercopress's resident clown taking over from Think? His hatred of the British seems just as intense.

    It's also because the state with the largest population overall is California; more than Canada.

    And Chronic replace Think? Hardly. Think actually has something to say and knows insults more imaginative than 'dumbass'.

    I doubt Chronic hates the British in particular, anyway. He seems just generally hateful.

    Chronic...what? Misanthropist? Tunnel vision? Immature trolling syndrome? I'll settle for ignorance. Read Andrew Vachss, watch Spotlight. Learn something about your own nation's contribution to the sexual abuse of children. Educate thyself fool.
