1. False Dichtomy
There's no point in a circle-jerk thread about how we all hate Bush, and we all wish the war in Iraq wasn't going on.

2. Ok, I guess we can concentrate on talking about how horrible the war is
War sucks. George sucks. Killing is a bad idea. Even worse when its for a lie.

6. So....as I was saying
y'know, I think "bitch" is so very naughty naughty. I am
a-gain' it, dad bern it. And atheism, well....oh my.
Hey let's discuss the weather. What is it doing where YOU are at???
you know what? Go ahead! guess!! It's about to rain here!

Yeah, busted on the caring for babies. Damn you. But:
Why do you value the lives of (ahem, jingoistic Toby Keith warbling here): "america-a-a-a-a-a--a-a-a-a-an soldierr-r-r-rs" (god how I loathe that fucking song) over the life of an Iraqi? I hear Iraqis are sentient beings too. And the adults wipe their non-baby asses just like the fucking occupiers do.

9. Yes, we all care about the killing going on over there
We don't like it one bit. But that means that a discussion of the matter here is going to amount to an endless series of "agreed"s. We have other issues we discuss that we do not have as much consensus on. This is the nature of online discussions. Those things we differ on get more representation than the things we do agree on.

20. Useless clogging chatter. The tyranny of Too Much.
People create useless chatter for the sake of useless chatter. They log in without any political shit to talk about, but since they feel so NEEDFUL to say anything, old rehashed bullshit is posted for no good goddamn reason. That is bullshit. The average age of people here is what??? And during their life they never discussed and explored their feelings about atheism until just now!!!??? NOW they have to discuss "born again" and "bitch" and atheism? NOW???

24. Most people do not have the opportunity
To discuss such matters in this diverse an environment. In case you haven't noticed our society is kind up tight about some things. Particularly politics and religion. These are the two major taboo subjects out there. So yes, many people are highly unfamiliar with in depth discussions on these matters with individuals of differing positions.

28. Examine your own topic
Its not about the issue you are going on about. It is akin to the media doing a story about the media covering the conflict. Look, we are posting discussions about the conflict as well as conversing about other subjects. We can only voice our distaste so many ways before it becomes redundant. I share your disgust with the situation over there. I am doing what is possible to end it. I am also concerning myself with other issues that I can effect as well. Issues that I feel are vital as well.

35. exactly...
I read all the war threads, news threads, the 9/11 threads and guess what? I agree that its all bull shit and it's gotta stop. But posting here isn't going to dislodge that dingle-berry squatting the White House.

However, having a debate, arguing, bitching, moaning or whatever you want to call it on a non-lets-say-the-repukes-suck thread is hardly distracting anybody from the point of this site. At worst it's ruffling a few feathers.

let me see, i turn on my computer when i wake up
i turn on the news, and now yea.....i turn on aa. i mute my tv until i see someone i want to listen to then turn down air america, and i read the posts on democraticundergournd all day long. i talk to everyone obsessively about world conditions and try to open up those around me to if not believe me, start listening to what is being said.

i think i put the time into world events. i know i do. i cant wait til i can quit obsessing about all this and can get back to life, after kerry is elected.

i am also capable of talking other things that may interest me too

Edited on Wed Apr-07-04 10:27 PM by Djinn
coz I see a shitload of "political" threads - including one with graphic depictions of the babies and children we're killing.

Also any thread about how awful the war is, how the population was far to easilly led into it, how the people shooting your troops now are not just "Saddam loyalists" - would all be "rehashed"

It has all been said before on this board - and many people don't actually want to sit around valiantly agreeing with each other.

Also many people on these boards who you seem to have written off as people who don't care because they don't always talk about Iraq actually spend their time to concrete things to convert freepy types (rather more useful than preaching to the choir)lobby their own governments, work with refugees who've fled Iraq, raise money for Iraqi charities and other activities. Please don't patronise them all by pretending you're the only one who cares.

And swearing repeatedly doesn't actually make you're argument any more convincing - and that's coming from someone with a vocab that'd make a sailor blush - time and place!

And now a weather update for bob - getting colder but still quite sunny havn't yet reached the 3 months of drizzle melbourn'es famous for!

14. agree completely
A good chunk of my waking life seems surreal: (watch "the war" on CNN), listen to passover recipes on NPR, put gas in my car, go to work.

But what's screaming in my face is what's happening in Iraq. Isn't this as big as 9/11?

I don't think anyone will ban you though. I guess for some it's easier to repond to something like wether we should use the word bitch or not then to talk about the illegal invasion and dead people. I'm not defending exactly but I think maybe that's the way it is for some people.

47. Someone Needs To Grow Up
threads about Bush and his murdering administration has been covered daily way before they started planning invasion "shock & awe".

Wake up you say? Many DU'ers did an amazing amount of e-mailing, phoning, faxing, donating, writing letters to editors, attending protests to try to stop this insanity. We continue to do so everyday. Don't accuse members of this site of being passive or asleep.

If the owners and administrators of this site want to discuss the language being used on "their" site, they have every right to do so with out insulting and rude attacks.

I am an atheist and a longtime Republican. But i realized in the last couple of years that I really had more common with the Dems, and in particular with the Progressive faction. THe Dems are more likely to be atheistic, which is a core value/philosophy of my life. Just one of the reasons I embraced my leftism and abandoned the GOP....

53. You know, if you don't like the topic being discussed
then, please, don't open the thread and read it. There are plenty of great political and non-political discussions going on here. As I hope you can see from the title of this forum, it is called General Discussion which is a place for discussion of general topics that somewhat fall into the realm of politics. Now, if you have a "beef" about the religious threads and how they shouldn't be in the GD forum then that is a valid complaint. But, to try and say that everyone here should be talking about only the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and the lies of the Bush administration seems foolish to me. There are just too many people here and too many different personalities to try to narrow down what we should be talking about to such a small group of topics.

"Babies, women, men, innocents are being slaughtered in your fucking names! Right now. Fucking wake up." - you

yes. It is sad to see such horrible things going on in the world. But to complain about people here because they talk about the word "bitch" instead of doing something about the situation over there seems a bit hypocritical. I don't see how this thread is better than any other thread here at DU for those people.

55. sometimes we cannot understand why some posts are deleted and
others allowed to stand. Maybe that is why we are curious about a thread that has seven "fuckings" in the opener and yet other less offensive posts seem to disappear.

62. There is a Forum
There is a forum called "Ask the Administrators" where you can post questions like this.

I have posted a couple of questions there, and have always received a quick response.

I would caution you on one thing, though. If you do post a question to the Administrators, do just that -- ask. Don't preach of tell them how you would run this site if it were your own. And don't bellyache. ASK.

The responses I have received from the Administrators have always, in addition to being prompt, been informative.

58. There are religious and anti-religious threads every day in GD
Edited on Thu Apr-08-04 09:31 AM by BullGooseLoony
They're among the most popular. If you want to get a thread with a lot of responses, just title it "There is a God" or "There is no God."

And, I agree with your point in that I think it gets really old seeing the same damned arguments over and over, but, hey, some people still want to talk about this stuff. It's a hot-button question. Always has been, always will be.

Not another thread lamenting the presence of threads dealing with religious issues and with the use (or non-use) of the "b" word on DU!

Please tell me it is not so! Please......

I mean, come on, people. Condi Rice is testifying. People are dying on Amtrak trains. There is lead in the drinking water of Washington, DC. The Commonwealth of Virginia still has not budget for this year. Gasoline prices are going up. Ben and Jen are still not back together. Prince Charles remains un-married, and the Queen will not abdicate.

How can people start threads such as this one when there are so many more important issues to discuss.

I have spoken.
