    I think I might take a few weeks or longer break from this political forum. The amount of crazy talk this past month has me rethinking the element I am dealing with. I think a break might be what I need

    I will leave it up to my friends here. I will see where the vote total is tomorrow at 2pm est.

    If nobody cares to vote or others tell me to stay. I will. If the votes tell me to leave. I will do so.

    Thx for reading.

    I vote stay, but during a brief stint read the book Rules for Radicals. I also recommend some background research on Obama and his relationship with Clower and Piven, and.who C and P are and what they stand for. U will come back refreshed and understanding more.

    All you have to do is look at the forum title. "Political satire, make of it what you will." If you think the people who are posting all of this stuff actually believe half of the shit they post, then your taking this forum way too seriously.

    I really only post at the political forum. While I read many other threads in other parts I usually don't post. Periodically I will post in the service plays section because a guy always emails me consensus reports and I will post for guys in there. I use those goofy reports for fades on the off chance I even look at it but I will post for others sometimes.

    I vote stay, their needs to be more of a balance in dems and repubs in this forum to debate issues. It seems their are way more repubs than dems at the moment.

    You should visit the Wizard of Oz and ask for a brain. Oh, and take swollen up from roids bonds with you as well. Maybe the Wizard is in a generous mood.

    No drama. Just seeing if my posts are too much for the sane here.

    I will listen to contructive critism from the people I respect. Safe to say you don't fall into that category

    i found my long respite from the poli forum to be wonderful after a month of slapping akiphelt (or whatever his name is) around. If you feel it's needed, do it!

    i used to post in the other rx sections but when Obama got elected i started posting mainly in here all of a sudden.
    i guess lt was all those crying ass obama this, obama that, threads that lured me in here to just mainly clown and joke around
    with their little gop/tea party politicians...and oh yeah root and support Obama and the Dem/Lib Party

    There are probably 20 posters in here that are constantly Googling whatever they can find on the net to cut and paste anti-Obama propaganda. And they probably don't read through half of what they post. Trying to make a rebuttal for all of that would drive anybody insane. You just have to look at it this way. If there was a republican in the White House, their focus would then go to democratic senators and congressmen, along with the usual 9-11 conspiracy loons. It's a never ending saga. The only advice I can give you is to spend more time on the net reading the actual news from the best sources, instead of reading the cut and paste conservative fringe material they put on this forum.

    Very good post. I have worked in politics for pretty much my entire life. I know firsthand it is parisan, petty and more or less professional wrestling gone wild. I've noticed in last ten years the hate has grown to a level I've never seen. Both sides.

    I see many on here doing just what you said. Going to google and just posting anti obama articles. I've said on occasion you could google anything to find your desired result.

    I think rather then fight all the nonsense I need to pick and choose a little bit better. Thx for the advice.

    I am a bleeding heart liberal living in Oklahoma. One of if not the most republican state in the country. We only have one newspaper. And it's republican. So where I come from people are pretty much born from republican families, or are heavily influenced by the politics around them. I come from a pretty tough blue collar democratic family. But it's just poilitics. Half of my close friends are republicans. Everybody has their points of view about things. One thing about politics, it's just like religion. Nobody, not even people who belong to the same party or church, are in 100% agreement with each other about their own beliefs. So you can't take it too seriously. You also can't take it too personally because if the conservative posters in this forum are anything like some of my conservative friends, they are probably much different in real life than the way you picture them in a political forum. That's why I try to stay away as much as I can from personal attacks of other posters. The bully approach never works on internet forums.
