I am just not into all this controversial conversation. seems to be a big fan of politics. Mostly I have noticed we don't talk a lot about politics or religion on here, mostly politics, because it gets everybody so stirred up and ugly.

When I found this site, I liked it because the people on here are genuine, downhome, hard working, honest, life loving, folks. Most come here just to relax and be nice to each other and tell about their day, the weather, and their animals and family. I like it like that. I love the stories and the company.

I am not trying to tell you what to talk about, I am , for one, just not interested in your posts. It has just made the feeling of this site kinda tense. You just need to relax and take a deep breath of fresh country air, go play with your dog, feed your horses, rake the leaves, trim the bushes, take a walk down a long dirt road. Learn to love life, not waste it worrying about politics, all the time.
There is just so much more to life. :)

I would just ignore it, Kelly. Thare are lots of posts I see, don't open and they don't affect me at all. I do see your point tho. We once had a board "Common Ground" about a year ago I think. It got out of hand and died a horrible death for it. Stay country, hug a cow if ya want to, ignore the rude folk,and just hang out.Remember "it ain't that it takes all kinds, it's that there ARE all kinds"JMO

I will have to remember that saying, I like that! Thanks Ron. :) I just don't want to see this board go bad. It's the only board I go to!

Sometimes enough is too much.

Well Kelly, Now that you have that post number, just don't open it. Talking about needle nit, ones offspring and what your day was like is fine for some folks. Some of us enjoy more mind stimulating conversation. Kind a learn that way and able to measure the character and mind set of fellow Americans/Canadians throughout the hemisphere. Go kiss a cow.

Well, that was pretty rude, I guess you haven't read what this forum is about...KOUNTRYLIFE...duh,

Jim in Minn.    Posted 01-13-2004 at 18:54:08       [Reply]  [No Email]
Aaah loosen up Kelley. Read and explore different subjects. There is room for all subject matter on this forum. Don't forget, "Kountry" can also be defined as my Country, your country, OUR country.

I enjoy the variety of subjects. I know Gonzo is running around trying to start little fires on the board. I think most of us handle it pretty well.

Kountry folks just like christian folks need to be informed about politics. Just reading other oppinions can be informative. It also can be inflamatory, but I carry a nice fire extinguisher.

On the gun threads and gun control threads, I wear a bullet proof vest and carry a gun with a silencer. I have learned a lot about different guns on here.

Not one of the threads on gun control or politics has changed my very conservative veiws, but they have not bothered me either.

Agreed Lenore. Variety is the spice of life. I doubt if that phrase originated in the city. A forum like this can explore the barn yard as well as Wall Street. In Fact Wall street was named after a wall in the 1800's due to sheep being penned up there. Now I believed i have bridged the gap with that little piece of Kountry info. One can either learn what the Americans feel about crucial subjects by way of bias networks or sharing ideas and opinions on forums such as this. When you look back at the subject matter, most responses are on subjects Kelly finds intrusive. There is a big world out here with many on going situations that need to be understood and debated. Take mad cow disease which started on a farm and has become a political football. Nice to read the opinions of all folks.

Oh, I agree, I learn a lot. And on here, I would expect guns to be discussed. I'm not really bothered too much, I just like it when its not so serious on here. I can be serious on my own time. I realize there are certain things we talk about that are controversial, but it doesn't go on and on and on like this guy is doing, just gets old after a while is all. I like your style of bullet proof vests and hip boots and all that, guess we need it on here from time to time. I think I need a good cast iron skillet to hit Gonzo over the head with....ah...there's one, gotta go now...;)

Good girl, Kelly!
Need to keep your sense of humor even when others get a little "serious".
I do not open all the threads. I can tell some will not interest me. However, later when I do open them I learn new stuff. It is sort of like the drivel I post, I know some folks will not read them or respond (I hope), that is just fine with me.
Congratulations on your daughter's honor roll accomplishment. I am sure you will enjoy the breakfast. Sweet dreams, girl.

if there's a poster what troubles you, just click your ignore button - they'll get bored too :)

KellyGa    Posted 01-13-2004 at 18:35:35       [Reply]  [No Email]
Yeah, he just won't ever stick to one handle, keeps jumpin all around, feel like the circus has come to town! Goodness! I like it when its nice and calm here, oh, you have an ignore button? I want one! LOL! I must have an old keyboard, :)

deadcarp    Posted 01-13-2004 at 18:47:18       [Reply]  [No Email]
you might doubt this, but there's times even i'm hard to live with :) that's when my ignore button comes in handy - i just click it and go see if the cookies are done. old keyboard? i think my first net-ready puter was a piggy-backed 386! now they have camera discs bigger than that. and don't worry we all have ignore buttons even with old systems. it's right under the little "x" in the upper r/h corner. :)

I just love you...your the best, :) I DO find it hard to believe. We all have a quirks, but you seem more real to me than some on here. I think I found that button, lol, I forgot I use mine a lot to tune out. Well, the dishes and laundry await, I must be going...have a nice night deadcarp, it's only 54 here now, and partly cloudy, Shelby is in the bed, Ian is watching tv, and Tip is lounging on our bed. I am going to Shelby's Principals Honor Roll Breakfast in the morning, so I must get some sleep tonight!
