The Burrhead and Clod show. I gotta find a way to sell tickets to this.
actually it's sorta sad when ya think about it. You two actually know or knew each other. JMO, it's getting out of hand. What happened?

You know, I don't really understand why people ( all over the world ) can get so exited about political issues and politicians..

Long ago I found out that there's not a lot of difference in what parties and candidates do AFTER they are being elected.
The bulk of the politicians just want to get the job they are running for and enjoy the power, teh money and the influence that comes with it.

I've been around for a while, lived in 6 different countries and observed the local politics from a save distance. The differences in what's happening to the people of the country when one party or another is in power are marginal..

The influence of the big companies and financial institutes is so much bigger - THEY are the ones who pull the strings..

Right now we have election year here in PR. The race is between one corrupt candidate and another who is just as corrupt.. What is going to happen after the elections is nothing new really.. Things will stay more or less the same.. I'm glad I'n not allowed to vote ( being only a lawful permanent resident of the USA and no citizen ) because I really wouldn't knwo who would get my vote..

Back to the topic, why can people who are friends fight over something like the presidential candidate? Aren't there more important issues in life? And lst but not least, isn't it possible to discuss the points of view without getting into a fight??

Just some thoughts of an a-poloitical human being...

right on gerrit, big corporations and finanical institutions run this country as im sure they do most of the world, whoever leads the government is at their beck and call, if you don,t like who is running you have the choice to get involved yourself and see how long before you become jaded.i missed alot of what happened last night as i was out but your right it does sadden me to see these things happen , especially to folks i like.

I blame Lenore, she started the thread!

Just teasing ya ya know how an innocent bystander feels at a drive-by shooting!


~Lenore    Posted 08-25-2004 at 08:19:05       [Reply]  [No Email]
I accept the blame, mojo.
My speaking up to Burrhead seems to have started it up.
I just found it getting more difficult to not say anything when he keeps putting "my" president down whenever anything favorable is posted.
I decided I would fight his fire (negative cartoons) with fire!
I now have decided this is not what I liked about this KL board.
I will NOT do it any more, it may kill me to not answer his presidential insults.
So in the future if I don't show up again, it probably did kill me.
Clod, Maggie, & Vic can check the local obituaries and confirm it. LOL

As my final statement on this matter:

I am not a dumb uninformormed deluded Christian conservative! I was a Republican voter before I became a Christian. I have voted for candidates outside the GOP. I am intelligent, I love the USA, and I vote. I may get into some threads concerning politics but it will not be to Burrhead. He has a pitbull attitude about the subject and I am not into pitbull competiton.

Red Dave    Posted 08-25-2004 at 09:26:08       [Reply]  [No Email]
Lenore, don't let that bellicose old bully drive you away. Can't you see that's what he wants?

I'd hate to lose you and your drivel reports;)

~Lenore    Posted 08-25-2004 at 09:31:58       [Reply]  [No Email]
Thanks, Red Dave, I am not leaving;
just keeping my pitbull out of the ring.
I tried it yesterday and found out mine is not a fighter;
mine is one of those rare pitbulls that make a wonderful loyal pet.

i tole you to leave him in the west, think we,s gonna have to bring oh hog over here ta straighten things out huh.

Les    Posted 08-24-2004 at 20:10:46       [Reply]  [No Email]
I'm breaking my silence and I'll probably regret it. Maybe not.
Ron, if you don't know what happened, there ain't much hope for you. The line was crossed a long time ago, but some people, you among them, apparently didn't realize it. When decent people don't stand up against some of the unbelievably nasty stuff that has gone on here, it only encourages the perpetrators. Which side would you rather be on? I think you might want to think about it a bit.
I believe you have my email. We can talk about it off the board if you like.

toolman    Posted 08-24-2004 at 20:53:05       [Reply]  [No Email]
oh and your so pure hey les, you never cause any trouble, never chastise anybody about their spelling grammer etc, i been around here long enough to have witnessed your brand of decency, and you have no right to come down on anybody, talk about the pot calling the kettle black, yup take it off board so you can spew your own brand of garbage without anybody calling you on it. alot of us been on your end of this garbage , your well known and yup your right about breaking your silence if your not regreting it i sure am. get a life and quit hanging around looking for trouble so you can sleaze your way in and try and make someone else look don,t work you only add to your own undesirable image.these folks are friends and they,ll work their differences out or not, don,t always try and take advantage of a situtation to make yourself look better, it just don,t work.

Burrhead    Posted 08-24-2004 at 20:05:39       [Reply]  [No Email]
You know what Ron I think yer absolutely right. I sucked myself right in on the board hogging and that aint good.

Kindy like smoking or dippin I guess. It's not good and turns into a bad habit.

I'll see ye when I see ye. Thanks for the wake up. 10-4

ron,ar    Posted 08-24-2004 at 21:58:11       [Reply]  [No Email]
I'm not talking about hogging the board Burr, we all do that, myself included, thats why it's here, to use.I'm talking about two guys I thought were friends from way back. I may have it all wrong but I just hated to see the two of you at each other here lately. If I have stuck my nose where it don't belong just say so.

Butch    Posted 08-24-2004 at 19:57:21       [Reply]  [No Email]
Aw Ron, let em have at it. Being an undecided voter myself I have stopped watching TV, reading the paper or magazines and get all my political advise from this board. I plan on voting for whoever's side comes up with funniest made up photograph, most un-readable and not understandable hill-jack dialect and of course many bonas points for the name calling contest, LOL Aint it amazing that at the same time they are trying to impress us with their self proclaimed superior knowlegde of anything political and make claim that anybody of differing views is something less than retarded that we have to put up with a name calling contest? Most of us grew out of that in the 3rd grade. I have my views to, anybody who wants to hear them is welcome to my kitchen table where we can look each other in the eye. I'll serve you some coffee and we'll have it out, BUT in my house your name will remain the same as given by your parents and I will respectfully listen to your position. I would hope for the same from my guests. If nothing else we can have a good laugh about the typwriter rambos on this page who seek only to read thier posts the next day and count responces pro and con. They certainly cant belive they could change a sane mind with this stuff,,,, could they?

Clod    Posted 08-25-2004 at 11:04:13       [Reply]  [No Email]
Hello Butch.You come in after the smoke dies down and the minefields are cleared.Are you running the battlefield dammage assesment team?I notice you injected a few political opinions of your own here.You are stradling the white stripe.

Butch(OH)    Posted 08-26-2004 at 19:20:01       [Reply]  [No Email]
Well hello there Clod, I think when I came on here you guys was still going at it below so I dont understand that after the smoke clears comment, I dont understand the battlefield asessment comment either. You lost me there somewhere. Your are right that I inject a political opinion on here now and then. In my poor attempt at satire I was trying to make three points. Nobody's mind is changed by such, the name calling realy impresses (notice I assigned no names to quilty party?) As Lanore wisely said, keeping ones mouth shut does not mean agreement. My politics run very conservative Clod but I wont argue politics on this or any other board where those who cannot back up what they say with facts hide beihind a typwriter and screen name and cast daggers. See where one of the brotherhood has answered just below smearing me about your white line deal? That's the way they work and I will not be lowered to that level. If any of them is man enough to come say it to my face then let them post, I'll send a photo of the results and then you be the judge of if I am a middle of the roader or not, deal? Have a nice day bud.

howdy clod, that white stripe can be a dangerous place ya know.

Clod    Posted 08-24-2004 at 19:28:03       [Reply]  [No Email]
I noticed you jumped in a few yourself Ron AR.Mostly agitation about the mail right?You bring these things up Like the deal on the tractor site .If you can't stand the heat get out of the kitchen.

ron,ar    Posted 08-24-2004 at 19:36:56       [Reply]  [No Email]
I can stand the heat Clod,being in Arkansas I bear the brunt of every Bill Clinton joke around. Nothing to do but bear it I suppose. I just thought you and Burr we friends sorta, hate to see things go sour. Maybe you got more friends than most of us.

Clod    Posted 08-24-2004 at 19:42:34       [Reply]  [No Email]
I didnt make Bill Clinton a joke.He did that himself.Goodnight Ron.

I like Les..I do in fact talk to him off board and he is a very good fella..we live in the same state/county ..etc.He doesn't crawl around waiting for an opportune moment to pop in ..I also like Clod and Burrhead regardless of their feelings on different topics but because I have a softspot for Pitbulls and the mentality there-of..Debate is a great thing and even if I don't like or agree with what is said,stated or caricatured I can appreciate where it came from..It's hard enough to get a school system to understand but really..isn't it our differences that make us all so unique and special?? Much huggs folks

hmmm    Posted 08-25-2004 at 20:52:26       [Reply]  [No Email]
slither would of been a better choice of word.

Aprille    Posted 08-26-2004 at 15:00:22       [Reply]  [No Email]
