    "Then hostilities will begin in earnest, partisan warfare, politics as blood sport, all that matters is that our side wins, at every level, all the marbles - executive, legislative, and judicial.

    When it's over, all the eminent talking heads will wax eloquent, telling us that now, with a new president elected, America and Americans, Democrat and Republican, will once again return to the great tradition of unity, binding up their differences to work together for the common good.

    It might have sounded comforting coming from a network anchor a quarter of a century ago or more, but to hear it today is to wonder what weed the speaker is smoking and where he got it. In case you haven't noticed, the toxin of partisan politics that was once trapped inside the asylum on the Potomac and bottled up in a few other political hot spots around the country has suddenly been pumped, undiluted, into the national vein.

    Cable news, much of it political and almost all of that partisan; talk radio, some of it virulent; the graceless decline of network news, until it stood undisguised, naked and seemingly unashamed in its ideological partiality; and major metropolitan newspapers, too many of which have given up the ghost of objectivity in their reporting to become obvious and open house organs for political parties - these were the forces that pushed the plunger on the syringe.

    Having been flushed from our lives of political indolence, we suddenly discover that it is no longer possible to cast a vote and run for the sidelines. So we choose up sides, pin on labels - conservative or liberal, Democrat or Republican - and become emotionally invested in the only thing that is important: winning.

    And of course the contest, as always, is all or nothing, a tug-of-war to see if we can rip the nation down the middle.

    I watch the silent happy-warrior faces on the screen and wonder. In the age of e-mail and the Internet blogger, how long can we survive before those at the lunatic edges drag us all to a future where differences in politics and social ideology are settled Beirut style?"

    [rquote=1276575&tid=89347&author=looking_for_guns]WHO CARES????????????

    :cheers:[/rquote]

    Uh, if this site is touted as a family/kid friendly site, we should all care that members are using racial slurs. Does this site allow use of the "N" word....allow use of KKK symbols, etc?

    Doesn't make no difference to me. IMO it says more about the person that uses it than anything, but as a self-proclaimed family-friendly site I think it would/should be a big concern to the owners/administrators and those of us that like to visit.

    Just sayin'.....

    I personally have no problem with it being used because those kind can call us honkies, crackers, and other name but the moment we call them something like that they are crying to the police about racial crimes

    So screw it

    just sayin.......

  13. No I believe that when the got they freedom back in the 1800's that is when they should have stopped crying.

    They wanted to be equals now they are above and beyond use with everything they have been handed.
