I’ll start with what I view to be progress; we without a doubt agree that many people on topix are indeed degrading at the least, but there are many more who are purely malicious with purpose and intent.<quoted text> To your #50 post..
Wow... all that false talk because I simply responded and gave my opinion to U.R. Nuts...?? You have TOTALLY misjudged me my friend.. I have not called anyone the names you say nor have I put down your culture.. I was born and raised country. Those on topics have put down all outsiders coming here does "Floridiots" ring a bell? Hence the name I use. I am sorry you got so carried away and so far off base that its unbelievable just because I gave an opinion about new business. I know the town, I know the kids, believe me wht I say is true. Min. wage would be better then no wage. And as for me I rarely go out to eat and could care less but if wages feed families I am all for it. I take it you are a liberal person that wants people to think and believe like you. I have many friends here and love the country culture. The people on topix are so degrading and nothing like what is really out there among the town. Good hard working people that don't choose to degrade others on topics. That's my kind of people.. You have a good life my friend. WOW unbelievable
Therefore as I stated earlier, my choice of a screen name U R NUTS. My original purpose and intent being to engage in and provoke challenging conversation in the interests of revealing, exposing, and possibility discouraging such insensitivities; while focusing upon identifying those who’s behavior we all detest as malevolent, from those who are less worrisome and could be simply misguided, foolish, or utter thoughtless chatter.
With that said, I must refer you to the nearest dictionary, look up “idiots”. I think you may realize you did in fact call the names you say you haven’t. Then I invite you to view the many posts I have written over an extended period of time upon many thread on topix, you will find I have never used the term you referenced in addressing our Florida visitors.
Being raised in the country as you profess, didn’t your Mama ever say to you “I don’t care what ‘little Johnny’ did, if he jumps off a bridge, that don’t mean you have to!”
So, if you are sincere, with dictionary still in hand, it would be a good gesture to consider removing the objectionable disparaging part of your name and replace it with something more positive.
Finally, the only thing you could have done to really hurt my feeling is call me a liberal. If you actually take the time to read any of my postings, you’ll understand rather quickly the absolute impossibility of such mistake. Should you actually espouse Traditional American Values you may find my views more to the right than yours.
No, U R NUTS isn’t carried away or off base, particularly if, as I trust, something has actually been accomplished through this exchange. I guess only you can make that determination.
