Yeah, it’s kinda goofy to discuss some of those things, but we also talk about “the issues”, as you put it. And yes, it takes the form of heated argument and name-calling sometimes, but I think that both sides make good points sometimes. Although I find myself gravitating more to the “crips” (republicans/conservatives) on the board lately, I also agree with some points that the “bloods” (liberals/democrats) make, too. The fact that it gets out of hand sometimes, and we start analyzing pictures of a wrinkle in Bush’s coat doesn’t change the driving motivation that the participants have in the political forums. We ARE making ourselves heard, if only to each other. And by talking about things in politics and world affairs, and maybe even butting heads sometimes, we are also learning. THAT is what we are here to do, even if we don’t realize it. Sorry if that seems stupid to you. Lighten up, bro. Believe it or not, the world is NOT going to hell in a handbasket anytime soon. Unless Kerry gets elected.
See? That’s a joke. I honestly could give a f#ck about who wins the election. Relax. Have some fun with this. No need to get all… cranky. :)[/quote]
Very nicely stated!
