I'm not saying I agree with what M3Denver posted, but I at least read it in it's entirety and made a decision from that point. Since I really had nothing constructive to say, I declined to comment. If that is what he believes, well then he's allowed to do so. I'm not going to act like a child and call him names and tell him he is living his life wrong.
That is what is really wrong with this section. The majority of people who regularly post here (on both sides) usually only resort to name calling and childish rants, none of which they would do if we were all seated in a room together I'm sure. I think the mods might be on to something, simply shutting things in this subforum down until it gets to the point where no one posts in here anymore, then they delete the subforum entirely. It's been proven time and time again that only a few posters, who don't post often, are capable of intelligent and civil discussion.
Are you implying that we aren't allowed to point out crazy statements others make? When somebody posts a list of fears from 1963 and another calls them facts, I will point and laugh all day.
And yes I did read them all, each and every crazy thought he regurgitated. I especially love this one:
34. Eliminate the House Committee on Un-American Activities. (Czars that answer to no one but over see entire areas of government policy and make decisions without any controls)
This subforum is going to be fun to read over the next four years.
