How is that discussing politics? How is that trying to understand another person's POV?

I'd rather just invite everyone out to a bar, get hammered, & then kick the living crap out of anyone who didn't agree with me.

Now that would at least be fun...
While I am all for getting hammered, I disagree with you assessment of the political forum. Most of this discussion is very productive and thought provoking. The insults and "tearing down" of opinions are not the rule, but rather the exception.

Look at the thread Phil started, "A Conversation with CKFresh." Look at the majority of Ricky's posts, or Anthony or anyone else for that matter.

I tend to over-react and I have been known to throw a "hissy fit" at times. But for the most part, we keep it civil and I think most people in those threads genuinely respect the other opinions. Some of the people that I disagree with most are my favorite posters. I find the threads to be very educational and a nice insight into the cross section of beliefs that is America. :thumbup:

Mindless thoughts people. None of this conversing with one another.

Not in the least

Although seeing the words "sweet" and "gun fire" together kind of bothered me

I don't see that from CK, either. Most of the time, if he gets snippy with someone, it's usually because someone was snippy with him first. I have seen him conduct himself very well in some very, very difficult situations...

Nope. But I have actually come a long way on that issue... You'd be proud. I won't go into here, but let's just say I've changed my tone on that issue, and I plan to eventually purchase a gun for protection.

Maybe I should get myself a piece. Based on my personality, what should I go with?
