I'm not long for this board...
I just cannot keep doing this--even reading some of these attitudes is too much for me. The last straw was the idea that men have no rights in the discussion of a woman's pregnancy. Some dude said that the man had the choice of a condom. Well, did the woman trip and fall on a throbbing, violet, stiff member or what?! (Not talking rape and incest.)

Plus, the pro-gun and anti-vedge, anti-holistic med crowd irk me to no end. Buh bye!

16. The vat of Kool-Aid is to the left...We have grape-flavored today...
Anything which is fodder for discussion is popcorn material, apparently, which is why I am bye-bye!

15. Hooray for Captain Spaulding!
(Spaulding)
Hello, I must be going,
I cannot stay, I came to say, I must be going.
I知 glad I came, but just the same I must be going.
La La.

(Mrs. Rittenhouse)
For my sake you must stay.
If you should go away,
You壇 spoil this party I am throwing.

(Spaulding)
I値l stay a week or two,
I値l stay the summer thru,
But I am telling you,
I must be going.

(All)
Before you go,
Will you oblige us,
And tell us of your deeds so glowing?

(Spaulding)
I値l do anything you say,
In fact I値l even stay!

(All)
Good!

(Spaulding)
But I must be going.


Sorry... it had to be done.

Don't let the door hit ya where the good Lord split ya!

34. You should look at the bright side...
Edited on Mon Jun-08-09 02:38 PM by backtoblue
The beauty of this forum IS the differing opinion and debate. That's what democracy is all about. Sometimes people post some mean shit, but you have to take the good with the bad.

Some of us are good, some bad. It's all about love and tolerance.

Peace and wish you well ;-)

19. Well, with all of 12 posts, I'd say that you're already short for this board.
Hey, I don't like a lot of the posts, either; but there is lively debate here.

28. DU is not good for liberals and other living creatures. Corporatists and DINOs and
various types of rethug-sympathizers are as happy as pigs in shit, though.

Most of the loyalists are, IMO, so enamoured of being on the "winning" side that they are willing to overlook the selling out of traditional Democratic values.

I share your disgust at what passes for "valid in the big tent" values.

30. DU is pretty diverse
I assure you not everyone here is pro-gun. I ignore the pro-gun nuts who come here.
I don't know what you mean by anti-vedge. Is it anti-vegetarian? I really didn't notice that group. If they're here, just ignore them.
There is a loud anti-holistic medicine crowd here but they're also the ones who claim to be skeptical of everything. There is a separate forum that handles alternative medicine at DU -- you will find a more receptive crowd there.

Finally, no group or website will match your views entirely. DU is pretty inclusive and used to be friendlier than it is now. I hardly ever post in GD because they are some assholes who will pick a fight about anything.

39. The health forum is anti-health. Same with Theology. Ditto 9/11.
Edited on Mon Jun-08-09 02:39 PM by sheila f
You are lucky to have over 1000 posts. If you have any difference of opinion and are in my shoes, you'd be toast, too. But thanks for the kind words...

(I meant to add that there are lots of bullies on here who get away with murder :()

33. Until men can get pregnant and give birth
whether a woman decides to give birth is her decision and hers alone.

36. You'd better get out while you can.
Once you've hit 20 posts you will have invested far too much time and energy here at DU to justify up and quitting.

There are many groups on DU that would cover at least some of the ideas you mentioned.

Oh--and take your sockpuppets with you when you go, there, "sheila f."

41. Don't let the door hit you and all that. No quarter to those who would make breeding stock of women
against their will purely for purposes of punishment. That crowd can fuck off and sit on a sharp stick until they die.
