And it's social media that feeds the frenzy -- it's so much easier to denigrate people of an opposite viewpoint when you can dehumanize them, and it's easier to do that w/o any sort of meaningful, face-to-face interaction or calm, reasoned exchange of ideas.

The relatively anonymity of the Internet (even when sharing your name) fuels all of this.

No accountability, hence no civility.
This.

I wasn't saying that we shouldn't trade with the Republic of California, just that I don't want their retarded politics having such an impact on the rest of the country.
Washington DC and New York City should secede too.
I have often wondered how a gentleman like yourself avoids spewing hatred and insanity and maintains an open minded attitude?

Things are calm and sweet in my mind.

Re: America: A Failing Marriage

Nobody seems to be worried about Nebraska seceding.

Just you guys wait and see. Youll be sad when we do and keep all of our corn, soy, wheat and beef. Oh pigs too. We have some pigs.

Seriously though Bandit is right with the marriage analogy. We have too many pissed off bickering husbands and wives on both sides that just cant meet in the middle and see the other sides point of view.

I don't see Trump gathering ex-convicts to become Brownshirts to beat and kill progressives into subjugation. I don't see him calling for Mexicans to be rounded up and put into gas chambers. I don't recall him writing a Mein Kampf....

I don't like Trump. But I didn't like Obama either. I didn't vote for Obama, but you know what? When he was elected I wished him the best and hoped he would do great things (other than Obamacare). He failed miserably of course, but I still wished him well. I wish Trump well also, although I am wary.
He doesn't need to write Mein Kampf, because he is already using the original: https://www.aol.com/article/news/201...anny/21710684/

I love Nebraska. I'd hate to lose all those wild pheasants too.

I boycotted network news for two years. Just recently have I been tuning in.

And you know what I found out to my utter surprise? It did not affect my life one iota. We do not need 24/7 news bombarding us every day to live our lives. We all lived very well and happily before computers came along. We were all fine before smartphones. Those things are great, and when used right they can enhance our lives, but when misused they can tear us down.

Did you ever notice you can barely eat in a restaurant these days without a TV stuck up your face? It's simply a propaganda machine, a method of control. I refuse to be controlled by man.
Today, my biggest concern is making certain my Prosciutto Pasta dish will digest before I take my Viagra so I can make sweet love to my beautiful wife of 25 years.

Life is too complicated as it is and I have enough trouble just trying to drive to and from work without being killed. The last thing I need is some mindless news feed trying to pump my head full of strife and hate.

Life is good!

Moderator warning:

I get that people have strong opinions where politics are concerned and all are entitled to them. That's the beauty of democracy.

However, rules regarding name calling still apply. Name calling will be rewarded with a vacation.

All who make respectful arguments are appreciated.

Thank you.

That's just the kind of whip-cracking you'd expect from a one-eyed, purple-headed, mutant space captain!

I'll bet you don't even have a career chip!

I heard you liked one eyed, purple haired, mutant space captains.

When did that change?

I'm still holding on to the idea that I'm really an alien.

You probably had to google some of that sh!t didnt you? Well probably just the Mannheim Steamroller part. Im from Nebraska and barely know that Chip Davis or whatever the hell his name is, is from here.

I would have said Kool-Aid in my original post, but while invented in Hastings, NE, i have no idea what company owns it now.

And @bandit.45 if you've bagged pheasant here it must have been out in western NE or known someone with some farm land. Otherwise good luck bagging one these days.
