Thread Name: BS: Disaster for the Democrats?
Subject: RE: BS: Disaster for the Democrats?
Okay, you watched the whole thing, Jack. Great. ;-) What points did you like in it, and which did you not like? I found nothing to object to in the entire video, and it dovetails with a lot of other stuff I've been reading. I think the point about the corn syrup is absolutely correct and pertinent. Have you seen "Food Inc."? If so, what did you think of it? And how about "Capitalism - A Love Story"?

"Please note Little Hawk that I did not ask for a lecture from you..."

Jack, if I waited for other people to ask, I would probably wait for an eternity and never get to say anything at all here on this forum. I talk here for the same reason you or anyone else does...simply because I enjoy expressing myself and voicing my thoughts. It gives me something to do in what is time! As usual, you are responding to what I say in very ill humour, taking some sort of personal offense from it, assuming I'm sneering at you or putting you down in some way, and I can only ....shrug....

I am not here to fight with you about your ruffled feelings. I am not your enemy in any way. I'm simply here to discuss politics. You'll note that I treat DougR decently, even though I disagree with virtually EVERYTHING he says and believes. I treat him decently because he's human.

You have a choice in front of you, Jack. You can choose to be friendly and constructive and not take personal offense all the time with anyone who disagrees with you on any tiniest point... or you can choose to fight with people. I choose to be friendly and constructive. It requires a lot less energy expenditure and it keeps me from ruining my own state of mind and alienating people.

There are two people on this thread who habitually fight with other posters, flare up over stuff, and get really sarcastic and nasty and insulting with anyone who disagrees with them about anything. They clearly come here mainly to vent their anger.

I'm not one of them, Jack. I won't name who they are, but think about it...
