All this Republicans this Democrats that is nothing but whining bullshit. If you can just accept the other party sees things differently, then intelligent conversation can happen. But not around here. Lately its nothing but taking things out of context, making generalizations, and name calling. Its tiring. Every thread ends the same way.
Yep. There used to be about a dozen or so relatively moderate posters around here so one could distill a decent conversation from the crazy. Now it's just as you describe. I can count the moderates on one hand and they don't post as often.
Can't say I blame them. If I post any thread even remotely pro-Republican I get called names and/or ignored. I find it funny that I can consistently squeeze a decent conversation out a thread, after I endure about 2 pages of carefully responding to name calling and maneuvering my "opponents" out of their bullshit and down to the core of the issue. But at the end of the day they're still not going to change or teach me anything of value. So what's the point?
This place is a shill battle ground. Let 'em rot and serve as a reminder of how superior your life is.
