A change of subject is served by a change in the name of the thread.

People decide to check a thread rely on the name.

Unless it's a little group of regulars hanging out.

If it's that, you should just do Facebook.

fair enough point to make but was the energy spent worth the reward?
The people who post on a regular basis here could continue their conversation that you say are no longer relevant to the thread title by moving the conversation to a new or different thread more appropriately titled and avoid the whole situation....could they not?
There is something very ironic about your(and BB's) criticism of my post, at least my post related to the subject heading of this thread.
My criticism was aimed more at your inability to keep abreast of the direction this thread has taken, than anything else. Because I knew your job takes priority over staying current, you have to be able to rock with the critiques, or roll with the bumps. NBD.

Just to be sure no one mistakes our moral lesson of self-sufficiency, we raise the interest rates on student loans, and the vital college education needed for success in the future becomes less accessible to the masses.
To be sure our moral lessons continue, we keep our taxes low and maintain our spending on defense against an imagined enemy and our educational system is gutted to balance the budget.
We are cursed with near sightedness. We canít seem to see the long term effects on the country when a low skilled, minimally educated workforce must shoulder the tax load of the future or compete with highly educated citizens of other nations.
We have an amazing ability to blame the victims in our troubled society and justify our accusations on a revisionist Christian morality which would be unrecognizable to the Christ himself. Not so much because Christianity was St. Paulís invention, but because of the absurdity of present day revisionist interpretations.
This modern form of Christianity has become an expedient for the infiltration of a radical form of capitalism intermingled with our public institutions. The very same institutions that were formed to protect the interests of the citizenry, who are now doing the bidding of the mega wealthy, while pointing to the moral failure of the masses they were intended to serve.
Yes, Mr. Caputo, we have many idols. And although Iím encouraged by your efforts to deconstruct Christianity, I doubt our ability or willingness to take the same actions with capitalism and governance.
It would never get through the Republican led House of Representatives. Thatís the one with all the good Christian Tea Party moralists.
Rather, they are satisfied to keep Americans dancing around the golden calf, with the improbable hope that eventually some of capitalismís largesse will trickle down into their laps.
We are minimum wage, millionaires-in-waiting, fully immersed in this form of idolatry, trusting our day will come.
If there is an unpardonable sin, itís using religion to separate and discriminate rather than to connect and make whole...."

We talk about this sort of stuff in the Why Should Jesus Love Me thread.

Hey moron, you've been on the same thing for five to seven years now, it's a thread on topix called "Bush is a hero".

There are warring savages in positions of power in the USA that can and have abused their authority and have mislead and misused.......but they are the enemies of the USA and antithetical to all it stands for.
Now with that said, there are warring savages from all four corners with the cooperation of the collective that set the stage for each act.
Example: Egyptians will eventually pass freedom by to get security again. Actions have been calculated and designed to achieve the desired reaction.
The "people" have to take back what is their's, the power of recognition, the "authorities" have no power but through the recognition bestowed unto them by the people.
'Rise like Lions after slumber
In unvanquishable number,
Shake your chains to earth like dew
Which in sleep had fallen on you -
Ye are many - they are few.
What is Freedom?- ye can tell
That which slavery is, too well -
For its very name has grown
To an echo of your own.'~Percy Shelley "The Masque of Anarchy"
Please expand on who these evil US war mongers are

If that is your best comeback.....I pity you.
It wasn't really a "comeback." I simply posted the first line of a mildly amusing limerick. I think of a comeback as more of a sharp retort.
If I wanted to give you one of those I would probably have said something like: "Yo, Longfellow, poetry readings are only held on Tuesday and Thursday evenings and in suite 305. You're in the wrong room, on the wrong day, pal."
Or pehaps I would have begged you to capitvate & enthrall the forum with a reading of-----> In Flanders Field the poppies grow, between the crosses row on row...
See?
And in case you haven't heard you irrelevant grouch, I AM Little Miss Smarty Pants, so put a hockey sock in it and take your seat!

No you don't. In the Why Should Jesus Love Me forum, you and a handful of bullies poke, mock and steal the lunch money every single day from a handful of Christians who want to discuss Christ and Christianity.
You're there to make them feel badly about themslves so you can feel better about you.

Anybody can go over and see for him/herself who bullies whom.

What are you so unhappy about?

It's so clear that something is eating at you.

I know, you'll blame it on the President.

I beg your pardon Mr. Wizard but any observation I make which you find displeasing doesn't magically translate into unhappiness simply because you cannot defend what a supposedly {cough} Harvard trained employed lawyer {cough} is doing in there 40+ hours a week. Preparing for an upcoming murder trial? Conducting discovery? Taking depositions?
You correct grammar and punctuation, it only took you 4 months to explain to some minimumly educated kid why spanking a 6 month old baby is wrong and you derive a daily dose of joy by commenting on the various flaws and shortcomings of Christians who post there.
Big shock. You bring nothing to the table in here either.

Now if you'll excuse me, I need to go take something for my cough and you should be running along too. There are a whole bunch of Christians over there just waiting for you to grace the forum with your brilliance.

Will you take care of that for us there, Catcher? Change the name of the thread. Whatever you decide is fine with me. I sure don't want some unsuspecting person to come on the thread and find out it's about present day politics without knowing it first. Oh woe is them.

Honey I think the moron is you. You took BB seriously that you are so great coming to the thread only rarely because you're working. Truth is everyone here is working and has a life well beyond topix.(except maybe Catcher, topix is where he does his dating) The idea that you have to choose is ludicrous.

Dear Miss Ann Thrope,

Thank you for your missive. I appreciate your fan support. Please continue to follow my performances.

I hope you agree that it's simply wrong to strike a six-month-old baby. I did convince RiversideHick of that, although it was a tough row to hoe.

Catcher

P.S. Minimumly is not a word.
