That is such a sad thing. As a nation we have to learn to practice civil discourse - how to look for common ground, how to agree to disagree. A functional democracy requires participation beyond simply voting every four years.

Ok, so let's not make the "no political threads" thread the political thread.

Yeah...I think my post, in response to the Las Vegas shooting, was a little politically charged. Sorry about that. Didn't mean to dump my laundry on the site.

I'm all for the rule. I get enough of that shit through the news.

It's a slippery slope, I get passionate about this shit too because in my mind it is so simple to fix but Republicans in office seem to value $$$ over lives of innocent Americans.

It disgusts me to my core.

it still baffles me to this day how that site went from a pretty good place to hang out to a complete argumentative hate filled abomination

so glad the splinter cell broke off to create this place ... and that was pretty much done in response to a child like "if you don't like it here, go make your own site" statement from the village idiot

so thanks again to Xee, UOK and everyone else who made that happen
