I'm telling you folks here and now I am done responding to political posts. There is NOTHING to be gained by going at each other regarding politics (or religion too fer that matter)cuz nobody is gonna change their mind or political affiliation based onna buncha yammering here on this Forum.From here on out I'm gonna stick to the Saloon and anything else BUT politics. And that is all I got to say about THAT!
You folks are all great and we have had some good times in here. I'd sure like to see it stay that way. No offense is intended to anyone on this posting.Just telling ya'll how I feel and how I'm gonna play it from here on out.Course if anybody don't like that yer welcome to kiss my grits too. :^)

Sounds like a plan to me, Clipper... :) I think I've cracked a smile at or followed with interest some aspect of everyone's life here, political views aside, and it's not like I think anybody's a bad person for the way they feel, but it gets so messy so fast when folks start whipping out the political opinions for a "weeing contest" that it's safest and best to confine those subjects to a dull roar. :) If folks want to debate their political views, all well and good, but from now on, for the sake of possibly getting to know all you good people as friends, I will also choose to scroll on past those topics. Happy debating for those of you who can keep it on an even keel... mebbe I'll be able to when I grow up (30, 40 years from now). ;)

Wow, that's never happened to me before... it sorta stopped loading (I thought) when the little progress bar down at the bottom of the page was halfway through, so I thought it wasn't being posted.... is my face red...... :(

Ok ok ok, Melanie!!
We get your point!!
I have had that happen to me but never FOUR times!! LOL
I think sometimes I back out and somehow hit post again and there I am repeating myself.
I hate when that happens.

you may have guessed that i like discussing politics. the problem is some folks just can't seem to argue a point without getting mean, nasty and personal. there is nuthin wrong with arguing politics, but if a person cannot discuss a subject without getting mean, nasty and personal then that person should just not participate.


Mark in Mo    Posted 05-20-2004 at 08:03:29       [Reply]  [Send Email]
I agree with you Steve.
If I don't like the subject, I don't read the posts.


KellyGa    Posted 05-20-2004 at 06:33:24       [Reply]  [No Email]
Steve, if you want to discuss politics, go to a political forum, please. I do not want to discuss knitting, but we should find common ground to talk about, and with politics and religion, common ground is not easily found.

We have discussed, goats, chickens, old stories, really good ones I might add, memories, pictures, our daily lives, like Ferns adventures with his cows, which I love to hear about. This forum is broad, but it IS about making friends, not arguments. :) Sorry, couldn't help myself, but I agree with Clipper.


~Lenore    Posted 05-20-2004 at 08:24:37       [Reply]  [No Email]
Kelly, I do not like political forums they are viscious, vile and full of profanity!!
I enjoy a little political "discussion", not a political war zone.
If folks who dont want to talk about our government and the upcoming election that is their right. One of the most important subjects at this time is the election and to be able to discuss it in a reasonable way should not offend anyone who votes. No one is forced to read them.

I also post on the rose questions and poison ivy ones. I post on the "religion" ones sometimes, not to cause turmoil, simply to express my view on a subject. I do the same on the political ones.

I dont read or respond to some threads that I know nothing about or have no comments to make. I would miss the political posts here. Even Steve zipcode and Tony can talk their liberal creed with cussing, I like that.


KellyGa    Posted 05-20-2004 at 08:36:42       [Reply]  [No Email]
Okay. :)

Thanks, Kelly, you are a sweetheart and I was not picking on you. [[[[Kelly]]]]]

McBurr    Posted 05-19-2004 at 19:05:38       [Reply]  [No Email]
I had 2 eggs OE, mesquite smoked sausage, sliced tomater, cathead bisquits and sawmill gravy. I like to put the mayhaw jelly in my bisquit then sopp it thru the gravy.

I never did figger out how come some folks put sugar in their grits. Butter and salt is perfect for me.

That reminds me I better ask the cook for a cold bisquit puddin.

Me and the kiddoes luvum. When they're around I never get over 2 bites outtuh my own plate so there aint no worry about over eating. 8^).


Chas in Me    Posted 05-19-2004 at 19:09:19       [Reply]  [No Email]

Burrhead    Posted 05-19-2004 at 20:18:44       [Reply]  [No Email]
aw Clipper we can think about pore ole Chas when were tearing up them bisquits.

Chas I had around 150 stitches in my mouth and had my broken bottom jaw wired up tight mouthed for nearly a year once. I still aint got no use for soup nor jello.

People can be so cruel. 8^)

I used to work with a fella that got the crap beat out of him at a rooster fight, no, a dog fight in Carencro La. They had his jaws wired shut and pulled his front 4 teeth so he could eat. We always went out to eat but he pitched a fit cause we always went to a steak house. He had to cut his steak up in little bitty pieces and stuff it in his front teeth gap. He was a good guy tho but later on a deckplate fell off a crane and killed him. He was from Church Point La.
