Regarding certain moralities being pushed down people's throats....I won't even go there since this is what we currently have.

You need to remember other people are "entitled" to their opinions whether you or anyone else agrees with them and will also say what they like.

Bravo .

Your right! I reported on one of those threads for name calling.

Aren't ya touchy... I thought Alaskans were tougher than that
He called me names!!! Let's close the thread!
I mean, there are threats and that's a different story, but name calling?
Hm, maybe you deserve some of it...

( "you" in general, the discussion participants )

You posted that some people are jealous of her and since I'm participating in this thread I decided to refute that point on my own behalf. I suppose perhaps some people are jealous of her; there's probably someone jealous of everyone. But that lame silencing tactic has quite run it's course.

My original post here was satire and that's all. It certainly wasn't meant to take on a heavy political tone.

As far as the political forum is concerned I have already pointed out to the thread hi-jackers that the discussions that they want to have can no doubt be found there


As far as being afraid of what she "may" become representative of...well she is NO longer the Governor of AK so people need to just get over it.

Get over what? She bleated that she quit on Alaska for a "higher calling". Apparently she wants to represent the rabid right. I happen to despise the rabid right because want to shove their f-ed up way of life on the rest of us all the while blaring about "individual freedoms". The only freedom they give a rat's ass about is the "freedom" to dictate to others how they should live. Small government my ass.

Regarding certain moralities being pushed down people's throats....I won't even go there since this is what we currently have.

Why not go there? What morality is the current administration trying to push down your throat?


You need to remember other people are "entitled" to their opinions whether you or anyone else agrees with them and will also say what they like.
People are of course entitled to their opinions but hi-jacking threads to get a discussion closed down is becoming the norm here and it has gotten damned old. Some really good information has been lost on this forum because some people have sour grapes and whine to the moderator every time a discussion takes a turn that they don't like. The caribou thread is a prime example of that.

The ironic part is that the so called conservative Republican party is just as willing to use the power of the government to force their world view on everyone as are the Dems. This is anything but conservatism. In reality, both the Repuplican and Democrat parties have simply merged into a modern, big government, Statist party.
The extreme left and the extreme right are the same thing. They want to dictate to other people how they should live. This is exactly why the Libertarian party is going to be the party of this century; they look and sound good to people fed up with both sides.

Met, your friend "notrees" is the one who actually started the politics BS with the video regarding health care so maybe you better talk to him about hijacking your thread. This has gone on and on with Palin and it is getting a bit old always turning into a mess. You had one thread closed and then you go and start another one and here comes good ole notrees dipping in with something totally off topic.

I've not seen any good information on the AK forum when it comes to politics; it turns into lengthy arguments and name calling the minute someone disagrees. One side thinks their right and so does the other side and then one side will try to force their beliefs thinking everyone else is wrong; hmmm, makes me think I'm back in junior high school. There is a big difference in debating and in what goes on most of the time when politics comes into the picture.

Palin is gone....I figured once she was gone this would stop but it hasn't. And if anyone thinks they are being accused of being jealous of Palin then that's on them. It's actually more of an obsession and some kind of strange hatred for her going on which I just don't get. I don't see her as any kind of a threat in the political world.

Have you talked to the mod/s as to why those threads were closed? Because whether someone complained or not, they got out-of-hand.

If you have a problem with what he's posted, take it up with him, please. And please note that I don't attempt to hold you responsible for whatever one of your "friends" post.

There was some good information in the caribou thread you posted until it was hi-jacked and consequently deleted. It wasn't necessarily political information but good stuff nonetheless. That was the sort of thing I was referencing.

Palin is gone....I figured once she was gone this would stop but it hasn't. And if anyone thinks they are being accused of being jealous of Palin then that's on them.

Some people see whatever "following" she has as a threat. Personally I believe that she's capable of inciting violence among the brain dead ignorant fools who still believe that she has anything relevant to say. I do agree that she's completely over, which was why this thread was posted as satire and not meant to devolve into anything else

Have you talked to the mod/s as to why those threads were closed? Because whether someone complained or not, they got out-of-hand.
In the past I have done so and have since realized the absolute futility of that. By the same token, I've been called just about every name in the book on this forum, had personally identifying information posted by a psycho ***** and got no response when I reported the post and had to DM the moderator about it before anything was done. There are still posts here slamming my son that I reported that were never removed and still exist here but God forbid someone should breathe in the wrong octave towards a friend of a mod. I've also been followed to another forum by a moderator where people were comparing notes about CD; that was about as lame as it gets. Seems that the reporting option only works for some people.
