I haven't been on topix in a long time. It's really been years! I got on here this morning to see if there was any info on a certain subject. I started looking through some of the different conversations and became very upset.

I would like to ask anyone who actually reads this to consider their words before posting. What might seem funny to you or harmless poking might be taken in another light. If you have something remotely negative to say please put the shoe on the other foot and read it again. I'm so saddened at how people kick others when they are down. How comments have been made about the appearance of total strangers. I read bad mouthing of the dead, fat jokes to the fat, and judgements passed on everyone and anyone. I read about shooting a dog instead of trying to find its owners, I read about a 13 year old girl being called a whore, I read everything negative about our teachers, politicians, churches, schools, police, fire, doctors, and just about anyone you can think of. Why?? Why when these people are our neighbors, our residents, our first defense in an emergency? These people are our future, our family, our community!

I would hope that you read your post to god and see if you can still post it. Please, if you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all. This is a great city! Lets brag about it! Thanks for reading.

Well the truth is there are 13 year old whores.
There are bad teachers
There are bad cops
There are plenty of bad politicians.
There are bad preachers

Perhaps you want to sit on your fat butt and ignore the truth.
Most fat people are unattractive an snot even sexy after a 12 pack.

Of course the darker it is the better.

Yes it is funny to watch a very fat person squeeze into a both and eat 4 Big Macs and get stuck.
It is their choice to be fat.

So if you don't like it too damn bad!!!

I'm sure you think the world would be better if it was full of people just like you.

Your wrong

We live in a free society that allows all views to be expressed. It is the spirited debate. That, is the honor. To uplift or belittle is the choice. I see you've made yours ... I respect that. Lol but, don't agree.
Whatever

You are an idiot. Even if you made a few points, your spelling and grammar present the facts as they are. You are definately an idiot!

I can agree some ppl choose to be fat. It's their choice. Some ppl have a medical problem or the medicine they are in causes weight gain. Don't judge and talk bad about someone for their size. You never know what they are going through. I'm sure your not perfect.

I actually agree with "dick." Lol. It is true. I just don't see how taking jabs at people solves anything. Especially on a website like this one.

If something or someone angers you enough to write horrible things about them under a fake name on a website such as this then I would suggest a couple of things before you post. First, pray! Pray for them and pray that your actions to follow are productive, honest, and good.

I'm far from perfect! I've casted many stones in my life too. If I can grow up and learn that hate and anger resolves nothing then maybe so can others.

Trashing a 13 year old on a public forum does not fix his or her insecurities or morals. It probably makes them worse. Perhaps reach out to them and offer a productive solution.

Bad officials? Well we have a system for handling problems like that and I'm certain it doesn't include trashing them on topix. Everyone has a boss! Go through the channels to resolve the problem. If you don't have the time or drive to be apart of the proper solution then by all means don't get on topix and be apart of the problem.

My point is that there is no good to come from the hate that we spred under a screen name. If you have a problem with someone go to them or those who can solve it. Writing hateful words on your computer and posting for all to see cannot possibly make you feel better. It may give you that temporary fix of socking it to them. But, overall it really solves nothing and leaves our community looking pretty ugly.

Be proud! Be productive! Be nice!! Hate breeds hate! Love and kindness breeds reward and results! Understanding breeds relating!! We all have a stone or two that could come our way and we should just ask ourselves what would Jesus do.

I hope everyone has a joy filled holiday season! Perhaps lift someone's spirits? It's a free gift and it tis the season!

I did pray for ya. Sometimes people are so desperate for attention that any attention is sought after. I'm sorry you're so lonely, bored, or miserable that this is your outlet for attention. Sounds like you need a hug. Someday perhaps you'll figure it out. There are some great online articles on how to gain positive attention for yourself, how to make friends, and how to boost your self esteem. I'd be glad to look that up for you. There are plenty of groups here in town where you could meet someone and make a friend or two. There are plenty of different churches and I bet you would find a place in one that could help you become more positive and nice. You could try learning to love yourself before hurting others. If you need help finding your way I'd be glad to direct you to those that might be able to help. God bless you... You're beautiful in there somewhere! I dare ya to let it show :)

What proof do you have of that? Rhetorical question. I'll take my chances on what I can logically know. Continue to place your faith in something unprovable.

Why does anyone feel like they even need a god?
What's wrong with living a life and then die why do you want to live forever??
