    Hey guys, I know we all argue alot, but lately it seems as though its getting quite hateful. Especially in that Kennedy thread. We all have to remember, we're all on the same side here. We just have different ideas on how to get there.

    I'm just as guilty as the majority here, so I want to just say, if I'm in a dispute with you, I certainly mean no harm, and I would hope that I don't come across as "hateful", but if I do, please call me on it.

    I could tell you right now that if I was to sit down with ABQ, Zrin, Ice, and God help me, Burm, Jbond, and even Artie, I'm sure we'd all drink a cold one, laugh and joke, and have a good time together, as long as we weren't talking politics. I bet we all have WAY more in common, than we have differences.

    I think we should all try not to lose sight of that.

    PS...Bush is the Devil. Just Kidding !!!!:lmao:

    I called the Kennedy thread a while ago. It was obvious that it was coming. Honestly, you (that's a general you, not you specifically) need to just let the ranters rant and not get hurt about it.

    It's an internet forum, a good sense of humor and not taking everything seriously is mandatory or you just end up wasting a ton of time and effort better spent elsewhere.

    The Kennedy thread was doomed from the start IMO. To many people hold resentment for Ted Kennedy. Not saying it's right. I personally see no reason to walk all over a dead mans grave. I don't like Ted Kennedy and never have but he has passed and what is said and posted about the man is now for his family and freinds. I take no pleasure in saying hurtful things.

    RIP Ted Kennedy. Condolences to the Kennedy Family.

    As for the rest, I agree Cowboy. We are all in this together. I would imagine that if we all sat down and had a beer, we would likely discuss Cowboy Football rather then politics. At least I hope we would.

    It would take the help of God to have a beer with me? I'm not that bad. Beside with you being a kinda left leaning fellow, I would get stuck picking up the tab.

    and we all know Obama is the anti-christ.

    It is definately getting personal now. And though we disagree on the issues, I agree with your thoughts in the OP.

    I am not disappointed to see a certain member of Congess pass away, but I there is a line you do not cross when someone dies (unless it is a pedophile, etc). Whatever else he may have been, he was an Elected member of the United States Congress. Some level of respect is deserved.

    Appropriate song for discussing politic and politicians:


    The lunatic is on the grass
    The lunatic is on the grass
    Remembering games and daisy chains and laughs
    Got to keep the loonies on the path

    The lunatic is in the hall
    The lunatics are in my hall
    The paper holds their folded faces to the floor
    And every day the paper boy brings more

    And if the dam breaks open many years too soon
    And if there is no room upon the hill
    And if your head explodes with dark forbodings too
    Ill see you on the dark side of the moon

    The lunatic is in my head
    The lunatic is in my head
    You raise the blade, you make the change
    You re-arrange me till Im sane
    You lock the door
    And throw away the key
    Theres someone in my head but its not me.

    And if the cloud bursts, thunder in your ear
    You shout and no one seems to hear
    And if the band youre in starts playing different tunes
    Ill see you on the dark side of the moon

    The Kennedy thread was lightweight compared to some of the Quincy/Hutch threads.:eek:

    That is why I try to not make it personal; and I do not take it personally when someone disagrees. Some things are just better left unsaid.

    Hey man, that bar could be any drinking establishment during an OSU football riot. You know, those gatherings that OSU fans like to have after a football win... or loss, or tie, or practice, or pep rally. :D

    I totally meant OSU, not OU. So yes, I was talking about you. Because an OSU fan would definitely make the most likely chair-thrower.

    Personally, I liked the innuendos by posters such as Cajun; in one breath calling him a turd, in the other saying he's ambivalent about his passing. Some wear their honor on their sleeve, I guess.

    I know a hypocrite when I see one.
