Having been on AK a number of years not everyone over there is all sweetness and light.

As to not biting, that's about the only way to get a response around here. Make a reasonded and well thought out post and you will be underwhelmed by the number of responses.

IF folks can get past the first real disagreement they may become better friends, and/or perhap sat least understand the other side better.

Or hate each other's guts and insult their stereos. Crappy boxes! Screechy horns! Distorted vinyl! Harsh CDs!

Pete
Car stereos don't count, my friend! My crappy stereo here in my alloted 25 square ft. of our home is junk gutted from old tubed Magnavox consoles and rotting JBLs lovingly restored by moi hooked up to a $40 soundcard that I got from Bartertown. Sand and vacumm tubes rule! Hell, my CD player is the one in my homemade 'puter. It is funny how once we get past misconceptions about differences in politics we find we're more alike than different. Guess what, I do all repairs and maintenance on our vehicles too!

I would probably post a bit more, but as Rob stated, "Make a reasonded and well thought out post and you will be underwhelmed by the number of responses." I don't particularly care for the personal and /or strictly emotional attacks. My skin is usually thick enough, but I prefer rational conversation over seeing who can yell the loudest. I already get my share of frustration from asshole drivers and people living in their cell-phone bubbles.

It's an American political forum, mostly. If we monkey's weren't throwing turds and brickbats at each other where would the fun be in it? If your blood isn't boiling over what is going on in this country, you may be dead from the neck up.

What makes my blood boil is the fact that the solutions don't need to be so difficult. All this "I'm right and you're wrong" attitude is the same problem that faces the real world. No reasonable solution will ever be found without compromise, and no...compromise doesn't mean I'll hug your elephant if you kiss my ass.

The niceness isn't in the people but in the reason for our being there. I'm a REALLY sweet guy over there!
