... shameless attempt to push certain political posts farther down the line.

Maybe we should stay away from political topics and stick to the topic of this msg board 'country living'. Having been part of many online forums, political discussions always seem to cause floods and disention. Besides, some folks round here are prolly on blood pressure medicine and should not be provoked ;)

Feel free to disagree, thats just how I feel.

Sometimes we forget that this is a discussion forum and politics (like any other topic) should be open territory as a discussion topic. Seems you often get arguments and putdowns no matter what topic comes up if somebody wants to get it started. I've seen some vicious comments on the tractor board relating to the red vs green thing, etc. Best way for any of us to avoid them is not to read them or get into the discussion I'd say.

Used to hang out at a bar at 18 (legal age at the
time). The spoken rules of the joint were: No talk about politics, religion, and another man's wife. Everyone got along fine.

When it come to pollerticks I've got more resepect for those I dissagree with than those that gots no opinion of anything, but argu'en with a typewriter on a board like this just don't cut it fer me either. When ya think about it, it realy don't madder what we think about it, its Kim place and she has spanked em several times in the past and will spank em again if they don't knock it off.

Guys I don't disagree with ya at all. But for any of you who live in or grew up in farm country you'll know the hot topics at the social gatherings were and are weather, politics, who has the best bull or dog, etc. The key is not to let things get personal, or take too many things to heart. Just grin and bear it.

Yeah it's kindy like the saying about letting sleeping dogs alone and the other one about not going in a bulldogs yard and kick him.

I tried this approach on another board and got beat stupid with rants about "Free Speech" and "Who appointed you King" and such, so I just exercise my right not to read such trash.

Not sure why folks insist on discussing subjects that bring up bad feelings and hate and discontent when other folks have asked them to keep it light.

Like most of you, I come here to relax and maybe ask or answer the occasional serious question. If I wanted to spike my blood pressure talking about S*x, religion or politics, there are plenty of other boards I start flame wars on.

Swampy, I couldn't agree more! One of the things that I like so much about this board is it's lack of Political, and Religious posts.
These are the 2 topics that usually lead to hurt feelings, or lost members.
If it will help at all I will start to post my biography putting each paragraph in a separate post!!!!(grin)
Now on the other hand, there is another problem on this board that needs some attention!
Seems there's a couple of troublesome Wimmen that are really getting out of hand,, what with wishin stuff on me like, Banged up knee caps, Skillet rash upside the head, and Lists from h@ll,, I'ts about time some of the gentler ladies, like S---Y and S----Y got back in here to soothe the fella's that have had the damage done to 'em.
I'm 100% behind you lets send the politics to the bottom of the board.

Boy when I read you post I sure was glad that I am such a sweet docile lady who would never try to do anything to upset you.


WallSal55 (Hey, EI and ladies)    Posted 10-15-2002 at 07:16:53       [Reply]  [No Email]
We women need comfortin', too, ya know. Men are just hard of hearin', or have selective hearing'. After all, we are sweet and docile for as long as we can tolerate. Sorry, the need arises to get out the rolling pin or skillet to make our point. Say, EI, we need a couple of
fellas runnin' in and out of our Payton Place, or
out waitin' for us near the sheds out back, tee hee.

Fawteen - I have found    Posted 10-15-2002 at 07:27:37       [Reply]  [No Email]
that "selective hearing" is one of the secrets to a successful marriage.

Of course, I'm just a novice (only 28 years) so I could be wrong. I'll let ya know after I've had a chance to give the idea a good test.

Old Moses went to the doctor! said! doc I need a big dose of Viagra.
Doc says! Moses why do you need Viagra?
Moses! my wife has been gone 3 weeks and is coming home this week end and will need some male attention, then there is the house keeper who needs attention ,And to top that off,i've met this sweet young thing that is great in bed.
Doc! Moses you need a triple dose of Viagra, and I want to see you back in my office Monday morning, just to be sure you're ok.
Doc gives Moses a triple dose of Viagra.
Monday morning Moses comes to the Doc's office with his arm in a sling, moaning and groaning about his sore arm and shoulder.
Doc! ok Moses explain this to me.
Moses! my wife missed her flight home, I forgot this is the housekeeper's weekend off and the sweet young thing got a new boyfriend and dumped me.
