as a commentator here nearly since the beginning, I've seen TBD in it's hey day to now, All the politics, and even a bit of it's spiritual side. I've laughed with my favorite the lovely Miss Prunella Farquar, and been kicked by a Kat.
But I have to say that the liberal and the conservative argument here has been the real culprit and show stopper. Never have I seen such a self centered group, bent on winning arguments than the liberal and controlling ones of this site. No I'm not blaming anyone in particular, As I see it no matter who they all are, they all have some blame. As it turns out, TBD has been relegated to the dust bin, for at least indefinately. Who's to say it will recover. Dunno. Do I care? sure I've met a lot of fine people here. most all of them have been run off. by either those in control themselves, or indirectly by the few followers here. I hear there is yet another TBD facsimile site. not sure who runs it. I'm sure I've been told. Just not interested. At some point you've got to give in to the sheer gospel that you have to allow decent of your opinions and open to dialog. few are willing here it would seem.
How many of you that are left who praised the King Obama. and how he would deliver us from the evil's of Bush. Well. who's cryin now? Dare I say that the leaders of this site need only look into the mirror for it's demise. Failing to listen to your fellow humans is never a good idea. And many times it costs you more than you bargained for.
I'll close with an answer to one of my later, but not so recent posts, I dunno I think I posted it both in my WTP group and on the Main page as a blog or something. Mr. Obama is an Illegal president, we've known this all along. not many would admit it. He most likely will not be a second term president. If he succeeds and a second term it will be more or less as a dictator. as it turns out he's already usurped over half of our bill of rights. So following, with the fact one might point out that the patriot act was a Bush era thing, I simply do not care. There has been absolutely no shift in policy from Bush to Obama to date, or one expected. And a certain Sheriff is not giving up about that Birth Certificate. It will most likely be his demise. Shall we at the very least agree. That no one was entirely right. As it turns out. It has more to do with what we've allowed our government to become than who it is we thought was in control of it. not too different of a rise and fall of TBD. I feel both the Obama presidency, and TBD itself will come to the same demise, at nearly the same time, and for nearly the very same reasons....
Well, Mr Tool, I think you can rest easier, although it would still be prudent to tip your sofa on its back and push it up against the living room window. You probably should keep your powder dry, too.
You see, most of the liberals, plus a few free thinkers and rightists, have indeed moved to a new subdivision. Politics didn't seem to be the reason they left, as far as I could see. As a heads up, I feel compelled to inform you that many of them still drive through the old neighborhood once in a while.
In a constantly changing cyberworld, its good to see you are Left.
politics would always be the reason, doesn't necessarily mean presidential, or Government politics though.
Politics, is the discourse between non like minded people, as I understand it...
Stop sinning and trust in God. He claims to be everywhere, he is up your arse and up my arse. Have faith in him while he does absolutely nothing.
Ah....Mr. Tool, bless yer heart.....although you make it incredibily easy I'm not going to "zing" you today.
But....the demise of TBD, should there be one, will have nothing to do with the gap between the liberals and conservatives here or anywhere else.
Have a nice day......
well, I rarely ventured much farther than WTP, but it is fun to explore.
guess it could all just be perspective...
Texas still has Dr Ron Paul, an obstetrician who has delivered 4,000 babies.
I hadn't seen any political discussions on this site at all, but today I notice one on the main page that's gearing up to become a doozy. I think they're choosing up sides.
I'll hide and watch.
Sorry to see you go Tool but it is not the liberals or anybody else that controls this site. This is the most open place I have ever been. Because someone or several disagree with you does not mean they hate you or want you to leave. I am sorry that some (most) people here did not agree with you.
Well, I for one am not sorry to see tool go. I hope I'm the reason he is leaving.
who said I was leaving?
nice to see you too Robbie, not a chance you could be the one to run me off.
Tool, us dirty no-good liberals didn't chase anybody off, although you can pretend that everything is the evil liberal's fault to your little heart's content - As you always do.
Hell, most of 'em simply painted themselves in to one corner too many, and ran away without so much as a by-your-leave or fare-thee-well. Disappeared, like cockroaches when the lights come on. Hmmph. Piss-poor manners from such supposedly "decent" people, if you ask me.
And as long as you're feeling all righteous, you might want to be fair and recall that several of your poor widdle conservatives weren't exactly the most polite or honest debaters that have wandered through these halls. "If they couldn't stand the heat", and all that.The phrase "Likes To Dish It Out, But Can't Take It" keeps coming to mind....
Hell, it's more likely that the several hard-line conservatives simply went off their meds, and they've been under watch with no internet privileges for the duration. Maybe when Dr. Thorazine determines that they're ready to play nice, they'll be allowed back.
Hell, you ought to be contacting THEM, and chewing them out for running like scalded cats, instead of sounding like Rush Limbaugh and whining about those who CAN both talk the talk AND walk the walk.
