Don't be silly, nAz. The only thing that's changed is your mindset. The rules here are exactly the same. You can post your politics just as before. Go ahead, knock yourselves out. It's just that finally some people are speaking up and not just DG alone who got pounced on by you guys the last time he tried.

You all want to pounce? Go ahead. Here I am. DG, Barbara, Rich. We're all here. Go for it. /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Fran,
I guess I don't get the problem. I scan through the titles of various threads in both the CCB and NPR. I read the ones that catch my interest, and skip over the ones that don't. How difficult is it to ignore the threads with GW, Pelosi, Iraq, or any other key words in the subject that would indicate it might be of a political nature? It's kinda like a library...you check out the books that interest you, and leave the rest on the shelf.

Discussing or arguing politics here was never supposed to be a personal thing....Ed kind of made it so, with his barrage of insults.
Just because I don't like Bush, and post anything I see that supports my opinion of him. ( I do have an opinion, by the way )..doesn't mean I'm against anybody that voted for him, not even those that voted twice for him (hopefully though, not in the same election).
Take Deeman for example, a dyed in the wool right winger, but underneath he's a "hail-fellow-well-met" kind of guy. You and I couldn't agree less on anything...but I take into consideration, you weren't in the real Navy, and let your undying support for Wal-Mart, for Smokers rights,against workers rights, your refusal to admit the ice shelf is melting, and your endorsement of Bush's new retirement plan to replace SS.....collectibles, like Beanie Babies, and sports cards....just roll on by. Rich seems to have a chip on his shoulder, so I don't even read his posts.
Taking misguided offense to any anti Bush posts....is like Bush claiming that any protests against the war, is a protest against our armed forces. If someone still thinks Saddam bombed NYC, stockpiled WMD's, and God approves of the war..who am I to question their beliefs? I just question GWB's beliefs about that.
There's a good column today by a right wing, conservative journalist. He does not in any way support the Democrats, fears what they will do...it was still interesting to me though, especially since he is from a minority group.

Wolf, I'm not sure where you got this impression, since I don't post regularly in the NPR side. If I do have a chip, it consists of my total disgust of the political bashing by both sides. Although some call it a debate, that is far from the truth.
There are many others here, with much larger chips than me.

Here's what I don't get. At the time that Fran posted her "Stinky" post, I didn't see a single thing going on between any posters that even came near to anything more than varrying opinions on politics, being discussed. There wasn't any bashing going on, at all. The only time I have seen any bashing going on around here, in months, has been on those occasions when our resident basher jumps on and posts six to ten insults in the span of eight minutes, lol, usually, to you Wolf, and Me! /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif The last bashing thread, was DG's original Q and Gayle thread, and Fran's recent ones. IMO, Fran's premise, that "It's getting worse" doesn't apply, beyond her distaste over having to "See" posted subjects, that she, (Rich, Barbara, and DG, don't') doesn't like, or do not care to join.

Wow, is it any different on the other side? As Jack and I have discussed privately, unless you had twenty to thirty years of experience in billiards, you were bashed over there, too, just for having an opinion about pool. And OMG, if you were a senior citizen, devoted to spreading your knowledge, and expertise to students, and willing to drive accross the country to share it, free of charge, btw, you were raked over the coals. If you didn't think Janette Lee had a right to take an extra time out, and were sick of her gushing over George after every win, OMG, you were attacking the whole WPBA. Right now, the very same folks, are over there raking Earl over the coals! /ccboard/images/graemlins/smirk.gif When "they" are to ones doing the bashing, it's all for the good of the game, LMAO! That's one reason why I read only, over there. People without credentials, or without pool groupie status, were bashed left and right, just for writing their personal opinions about pool! I mistakenly thought, hey, I'm only posting on the non pool related side, where everyone has a right to an opinion, because it won't be about pool. Boy, was I ever naive'....what we have here is a handfull of supposed adults, who want their own way, regardless of how many of the rest of us here, enjoy and take part in discussing current events. It goes like this.... "I don't like political posts, there are political subjects here, therefore, this place stinks, and I'm going to shut it down, but I'll PM my a$$ off first, or call for a vote, and rally up the troops for support in advance." /ccboard/images/graemlins/wink.gif

/ccboard/images/graemlins/tongue.gif /ccboard/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

I'm not bashing anybody. In fact, I liked Fran, Barbara, Rich and Dg...there really isn't anyone on here, that I couldn't get together with and shoot some pool, even Ed!!! /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

What a dull world we'd have, if everyone had the same opinions. Just imagine, what this place would be like, if anything that smacked of politics, was forbidden. Jeese!!! What the hell would we talk about? An open forum, with no current events allowed? Trivia, jokes and recipes only??? How very narrow! /ccboard/images/graemlins/confused.gif /ccboard/images/graemlins/wink.gif

What has changed around here, why should he continue to read the posts if he does not like them and there is no change in sight? Just because he has not read them in a long time does not mean what he says is or is not true, that is just a strawman argument because you have nothing better to say.

It has been said plenty of times already, skip by the ones you don't want to read.

I rarely post on the other side any more because I am tired of the same ole same ole. At least on this side the news is changing every once in a while. I used to post a ton on the Pool related side especially when we had the old board, but those threads get tiring when you see the same one open up 50 times a year. Do a search people. But in the end if everyone actually did a search on the PR side about Meucci's, Predator and KT, what else would there be to talk about. This side offers much more dialogue than the PR side.

I guess I have to say this one more time. Gayle, Ed, Q, all of us have a right to say anything that we believe as long as it does not violate some policy of the CCB. I don't have to like it nor read it. If I choose to respond, that is my choice and I had better be ready to defend my position or just click on the next post...

While I would prefer a methodical reasoned debate, that is not exactly what we have here as it is a catch-as-catch-can type of posting system. Those with the most time may have the loudest voice. That does not mean they are right...or wrong but they truly hold these beliefs and I think we should respect them, argue our side or ignore, at our choice. If we can't tell the difference in who is on what side of an issue and weight the validity of their sources, intent and value, we are indeed a poorer place.

Like everyone, I have occasions where it all gets to be too much and I chill out and leave the debate to others. The left is the opposition in most of my posts and opinions. However, I would not want to be in a place where we don't give them free reign to say their piece any more than I want to be shushed for saying what I believe.

This is the price of freedom, the ability to say, "I don't buy that." Doing anything to limit any of our debate, within reasonable speech, is doing exactly what many would think is threatened in oour country today. I don't beleive it is or should be.

Dear Deeman,
You're all special to me, every single one. You and I have had our clashes, but I do respect your opinions, and the opinions of the rest, also. You know my feelings on the importance of dialog about our current political environment, and I applaud the fact that you, and some others here, understand, that agreement, is not the purpose of conversation.

I've learned a great deal from this website, both about current events, and billiards, and I value and enjoy what time I spend here. I love people, and I truly consider every poster here, a friend, and part of a very nice group of people, that it has been my pleasure to meet via cyberspace.

Beneath all the debate that goes on here, regardless of the sometimes heated tone, when one of us inadvertantly pushes someone else's button, or get's ours pushed, my feelings have always been that we're each perfect, just as we are. That all people truly are decent, and flawed, and that each of us is F-ed up in our own special ways, lol.

While our country is going through a rough period, for sure,... in my heart, I believe that we will work things out, eventually. I really do believe, that our country may be on the brink of a much more politically civil period of dialog, no, not because the Democrats are in power, but because we're all yearning for dialogs of greater value, which will advance more honest, and logical solutions, promote reasonable and realistic expectations, and therefore allow more positive results.

I have nothing but respect, for all those here, who venture out to take the risk of making their opinions known, and standing up for what they believe in, whether I agree, or not, I still believe that communication, and sharing our differing ideas and opinions, is a good, and even great, part of who we are, and a cherished priveledge.


I don't think it matters much, who is right or wrong, only that we embrace our freedom to speak about what is in our hearts, and learn about one another in the process.

All the Best to you and yours, Deeman, and, I mean it when I say, I do hope I get to meet you someday... /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

And don't go getting all semantic on me, saying you never said that stuff. You did, if not in those exact words, and so have others here, and it always occurs in the political threads. And it gets repeated over and over and over and it never stops.

So all this logic about it being more interesting here and things are always changing and blah blah blah is a lot of bull and you know it.

The liberals and the conservatives keep going back and forth at each other as if they're some day going to convince the other that they're right. THAT WILL NEVER HAPPEN, and you all know it. But even though you know that you won't change each other's mind, you continue to yell and scream at each other as if some miracle breakthrough will occur.

And you call that communication, or an exchange of ideas? Give me a break. I wasn't born yesterday.

It's a contest of trying to get one up on the other side. That's all it is. And you all post like it's a contest --- HERE, HERE, look what I found!!! This ought to get their goat! And then the posters post up their articles and their "PROOF". And then the syncophants all chime in with their accolades. "Yeah, yeah, that ought to get 'em."

You guys may be talking about very adult issues, but you're acting like very young, badly behaved children with each other. It's actually a shame.

I really don't let much of this board affect my life at all. The only time it really affects me is when I get a chance to meet the others from the board. Nothing here drives me insane, I do get a chuckle every now and then and I certainly come to see what sort of stuff people will come up with but that is about it. I have said all the same stuff in PMs that were sent to me from people who have lost their cool with me. I basically tell them the lighten up (sometimes they need to act their age, and you would certainly agree if you were able to read some of the PMs) and have a good time.

Just go back and read your posts over the past few years. You will not tolerate being "told" anything by anybody, and you have to have the last word. If you cut your ego issues out of your posts, I guarantee the number of your posts would be cut in half. Half is a big number.

You can have the last word here because I know how important it is to you. Fire away, and feel free to break down my post phrase by phrase. /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Whew! Thank God! I was worried that this was some
sort of fallout over the election or something!

I have yet to read anyone's posts here that have forced me to totally rethink my position on anything.

And my guess is you never will. You're a closed book,

Ya think? You don't really think he still believes that Bush didn't lie, do you? Or that Rice didn't lie, or Cheney? He couldn't possibly think that going to Iraq, was a good idea, after all, could he? Or that Rumsfeld, and many other Bush appointees, were good choices? Or that Bush, rumsfeld, Cheney and Rice, have been honest with the American People throughout this war, could he????

Na, even Eg8r isn't THAT dumb and hardheaded. Ya think?

He's coming for dinner, I'll be serving mushrooms /ccboard/images/graemlins/wink.gif with his steak... /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

LOL. I agree. If this was the only thread I had ever
read by Eg I might like him a little better.
