    And may GOD have mercy on your soul....

    Don’t forget to fill out your Primary Next Of Kin forms and update your insurance beneficiary information.
    You’ll also want to make sure that your blood type is marked on the back of your flack jacket and the SOS information in your iPhone is up to date.

    Remember.....
    Once you see something?

    ...You can’t un-see it.

    I think snowflakes are shipped factory-preoffended, so do not give yourself too much credit.

    I am not a member of the Political forum on Fred's HOP. I am taking the advice of members who said you will be a lot happier if you don't join. I appreciate that advice.

    I am helping our daughter study American History this year and ran across a wonderful fact.
    George Washington 'The Father of our Country' spoke to not allow the formation of political parties. He said it would be divisive and polarizing and people would foolishly vote for the Political Party rather than for the individuals running for office.

    How farsighted some of these individuals who bought our country together were. They not only foresaw our current political climate but suggested a countermeasure.

    Far too many people identify themselves as progressives, liberals, conservatives etc and then paint themselves into corners they may not even be comfortable in by blindly following that ideology.

    Yeah.
    George wasn't without his faults but he was a pretty smart guy.
    It's no small winder that there are lots of places and things named after him.

    It's a testament to your forum name that you choose to stay away from the Political sub-forum, and probably an indictment on my humble faith that I've posted there as often as I have.

    REALLY....
    You're not missing anything!
    If I were Forum owner for one day, I would allow one and all to read and only those who supplicate themselves before a mod to POST something there.....



    ....but I just fix phones for a living. ;)

    I've been around here for a long time and while I'm not a post whore, I read almost every post. I made the mistake many years ago and joined the political forum. I read things from people that totally changed my view of some members that I had previously thought were friends. I left that forum behind but it tainted my view of some things here for quite a long while. I have been participating in forums since dial-up BBS's like Compuserve, Genie, and completely unmoderated foul mouthed forums and have pretty thick skin but do yourself a big favor and stay ignorant of "that" forum. You'll be much happier.

    Joining is like beating your head against the wall because it feels good when you stop.

    Same is true on amateur radio. There are groups that are polite, and others you think should be arrested just the way they interrupt & verbally enjoy murdering your thoughts. You might be able to get some great technical data out of them, but you might rather talk to the devil. And like the social media platforms that will De-platform you if you don't follow their narrative, in the radio world - there are those who illegally/high powered jammers that won't ever let you deviate from their view

    Is the political subforum still going? If so, how do I join? I need some fun reading material. The previous links in this thread just give me error codes.

    Unfortunately, PM ing a Mod is not an option for me, as that hasn't worked for me in many months....

    @Tideland Prius ..... are you able to help?

    Just how long can navel-gazing be "new or exiting?"

    well, we used to have some pretty excitable members, but they probably had heart attacks, or were advised by their docs to refrain from social media:cool:

    This is awesome. Some things are just too irresistible, regardless of warnings. I feel myself being drawn into the blackhole and I can't turn back now!
