          Can you explain why you are so heartless? Not to mention self-centered? You are one of those assholes who think you can do no wrong, aren’t you?

      Sounds like EFFBREMERTON is a bit angry that he’s still stuck in Bremerton and ashamed of being a loser himself so he blames everything that happens near his crappy world on others. He used to work at the yard and was fired or squeezed out for his attitude, or perhaps was never able to get that job at the yard which he needed so badly. Anyway, that’s my guess of who EFFBREMERTON is. Still stuck where he doesn’t want to be.
