I agree with you to a point. I thoroughly enjoy our talks about everyday life, cooking with cast iron, visits with family and friends, and kind and reassuring support when we have had times of sorrow, loss of family/friends, or enduring a serious medical problem. I cherish those times and the friendships that I have made. But AB, think for a moment, please. We have talked about HAARP, chemtrails, prepping for disaster, fracking, bird die-offs, so on and so forth. I fail to see the difference between these subjects and the topics that I have introduced recently. If I follow your line of reasoning, then these topix should be avoided as well, because they lead to discussion of government, and that leads to "politics." Of course, I don't believe that; I'm just using an example. OJG has discussed issues in the middle East, and our foreign policy. We have talked about the SHTF, the Louisiana sink hole and why this has been hushed, chemicals in our food and water, gun control and the oddities of the Newtown, Conn. incident, and many more topics like this. That's what has made this thread so dynamic over the past two years. I'm not all gloom and doom, but I also know that just talking about feel-good topics will kill this thread faster than being overtaken by trolls. It is the variety of the posts that keep us near the top of the Topix threads.<quoted text>
You are correct there, usually we get everything since that line of snow/sleet/ice etc they use on the weather map always seems to dip down the northern part of Kentucky. This time the southern part got it.
On the politic statement. I don't like to discuss politics even with family most times, I didn't say I NEVER discussed them. I don't post on any thread on a regular basis outside this one. I do pop into a couple now and then if it is something I feel passionate about to leave a comment (that's about it..."A COMMENT".
You are totally correct in your analogy of the randpaul sites. Mostly bashing, hate, gloom and doom on those sites. Your fake buddy Chicago girl lives on there and I found that out by accident. I think she followed you, Stevie or Whitehair over here since all of them and the bird thread is always on top of the forum. I noticed the anyplace, Illinois posts with the sheep baaa and went back a few pages during similiar times posting on this site. Sure enough. There was the faker spinning locations, United States, anyplace Illinois lots of sheep baaaaing. UNA and Imposter was right FAKE and LIAR. I posted ONE comment on there because I am passionate about it. Ditch Mitch McConnell on the news wanting to redistrict and change voting rules instead of working on the needs of the people he represents. He needs to go. A lot of them on both sides of the isle need to go. Career politicians. There is only one Elizabethtown post that I seen, mine. I don't spin my location or use other people's computers to deceive people like it stated.(Obviously it does along with that phone, possibly why all the locations). Either way, I don't post everyday every other hour like those people do on there. I avoid that site due to all the hate they sling. Pretty sad for all Americans that they come to that over politics. On your statement about those issues you mentioned...all leads to politics and those who make the laws. Not much of a way around it when discussing those issues. However, that is why those threads are on top like the bird thread. I liked that we pretty much avoided those subjects on here and just talked life in general, not issues that divide this country, friends, neighbors and family. United We Stand, Divided We Fall.
In case you haven't noticed, I am trying my best to help keep the peace. I consider all you folks my friends, and it saddens me to see good people offended. That's it, plain and simple.
