Classy and tactful

I never thought I would use those two words together as the subject of a Topix thread.

I would just like to say that I am truly surprised that, aside from a few unfortunate comments, most posts I have read today on both sides have been tactful. I honestly expected an explosion of gleeful disdain and an " I told you so" attitude from the left and hateful threats from the right.

I'm not saying we haven't seen some of that, but for the most part, everyone seems to be able to discuss the outcome of the election non-emotionally, or with humorous comments about the way things worked out.

Nice.

I really am worried about Don, though. Someone suggested he should be checked on....

Don, are you OK?

It's been handled better on topix than all the "the world is ending!" crap I've been reading on Facebook all day.

You do know the rapture is near. Don't you? That is the general consenus on Facebook. The country is not going to survive the next four years. It just can't. God is not going to allow it. Where do these people come up with this stuff? One person went so far as to say that Obama is going to change the tenure of president so that it is unlimited. Oh please people. It will be okay. We need to start thinking as Americans, not as Republican and Democrats.

I hadn't heard any of these theories but would have rolled on the floor. One plus: at least with Facebook we know who the coo coos are.

Interesting that we haven't heard gloating from flip tard. Bet he is too busy drinking grape drank and blaring Gigga music from his subsidized housing. For real y'all !

That is not Flp's style to gloat. He has a talking point and it is almost always a good point. He doesn't attack unless he is attacked first.

It's late for republicans to comment. They are in bed because they have jobs to get up for. Keep working republicans, millions of Obama voters are depending on you to contribute your tax dollars for their welfare checks!

So funny....NOT. The thread was started five hours ago. What are you doing up? Oh yeah, not all people work first shift. Hmmmm. Ever thought about that? Apparently not. Doesn't sound like you do that much

Astounding....I suppose I should have waited at least 36 hours to commend the Topix community. My mistake.

Carry on with the hatred, everyone.

Elthel, It is quite apparent you started this thread, simply to get the sh!t started. Frankly, I am beyond tired of all the bickering, and there is absolutely nothing we can do about it, either way we where screwed. You on the other hand must enjoy controversy.

No. You are wrong. If you are, in fact, beyond tired of all the bickering, why would you so openly bicker about this thread???

I started this thread as a positive....and as l implied above...silly me...it is people like you who make things negative here.

I enjoy harmony....not controversy.

Have a nice night.

If you had good intentions when starting this thread, then pardon me. That just happened to be the vibe I got..Peace Love and Harmony.

BTW, I have only noticed one poster with the ISP location of Molinta here lately.

And you say I enjoy controversy?

Please, psuedo-AC. I would guess that no one enjoys controversy more than you.
