Tell ya what, here's a thought!
    #866910 - 09/06/02 10:22 AM (14 years, 3 months ago)

Seems like there?s not a lot of consensus building going on in here.  Why don?t you guys fight it out and when the better half wins somebody can PM me and let me know about it.



Thanks, and have a great day! :smile:

This is discussion, not consensus. As in real life, we can't all agree.

good point....i have many philosophical differences with many on this board that cannot be overcome, and vise versa.

To be honest trash talking about the disabled is about as low as it gets. That kid is doing something positive with his life. I have great doubts most of the people here would have the balls to compete in the special olympics. Respect where it's due.

I can think of lower things, like dropping bombs on innocent civilians. :grin:

Fortunately, the lefties are the ones who advocate universal disarmament, so we don't really have to take them very seriously. They have no real self-preservation instinct. They just blabber on as long as we protect them from the big, bad world out there :smile:

When I first came here, I had compromise as one of my priorities. Seems like we're always pushing the opposition further toward one pole and receeding toward our own, then staring each other down from across the ravine. It's like our own 38th Parallel. Rather than contribute to the further polarization, I was hoping to seek out middle ground. Give and take, you know? Now, I think I was confusing this abstract, anonymous place with the real world. Here, there are too many idiots, too many trolls, and too much pissing contesting for that. There are plenty of intelligent, respectable posters as well, but it's a package deal. So now, when I get back into range of the www, I mostly just seek out certain philosophical opponents who are willing to hear and take intelligent stabs at my extremist views .

This forum has never been about building a concensus. I know how many of us really expect to change each other's mind with our posts. I debate for entertainment, not to change the world.

Welcome evermore to gods and men is the self-helping man.  For him all doors are flung wide: him all tongues greet, all honors crown, all eyes follow with desire.  Our love goes out to him and embraces him, because he did not need it.
