If somebody agreed with everything I think, I would find that frightening. I would begin to ponder more seriously the issue of cloning, about which I have not given much thought. But I will will say this. My influence on my siblings has been marginal, highly marginal. You must be a more effective advocate. You missed your calling by not becoming a member of the guild.
Just why there is such a need for affirmation, rather than calm expressions of opinion and conscience, just typed out a letter at a time, baffles me. What I enjoy most is typing out something that is more coherent than usual for me, that few may agree with, but may provoke thought. It gives me personal pleasure. It empowers me. That is why I am here.
Another one gone. FR is not the better for his or any of the departures of late.
I don't dislike you at all. I dislike the way you call everyone you disagree with names, but I can over look that.
Well OK, if that's the way you all are going to be about it, then I'm going to quit too.
I really mean it. I'm outta here. HTB. ALC. AMF. All of it.
No, really, I'm gone.
Well, since I'm receiving so many private email requests to stay, maybe I'll think about it. I get to draft anyone's tagline for my own if it's really funny.
I'll think about it. but some of you guys have been kinda mean. Those remarks you make, they hurt, they REALLY hurt, you know.
I'll see what kind of mood I'll be in the AM.
Oh crap, I've already donated my $25 to the fund-raising drive. Gotta stay for my money's worth.
Just everybody needs to get a long. I'd like the world to sing a song of unity and lust, with AlQaeda, all Wahabists, theorthodox Jews, the fundy Christians, the shake and bakers, we could even use some from dee rustafyin band. We'll all sing Koombahya da bomb.
Good fortune to you & yours.
A very eloquent farewell.
I wish LC the best, but odds are LC will be back here within a week or two simply to cruise the headlines lurking. Why give up such a fine news source over something like that?
If he/she goes it's their loss, not mine.
If those nasty people don't get purged this won't be the last of people leaving either!
Are you leaving because of disagreements over the Terri Schiavo case?
There's a lot more to this case than meets the eye.
I've been doing research on the changes to the Florida law, as it appears that there is a Model Act which was adopted, looking to see who is behind it. It is said that the big push is by the managed care companies, although I haven't nailed it down yet.
There's a movement that is pretty scary called "futile care theory" that is pushing an agenda where it's "for the best" to kill people if caring for them is "futile" in the eye of the beholder.
If we're being killed off because the cost of our care is too "burdensome" for insurance companies, isn't that a reason to be pissed off, armed, and dangerous?
We don't have to agree about everything.
Well, if you don't feel happy unless you are among those who agree with you, maybe it's better that you go. You just did not strike me as that type of person.
What am I, chopped liver? I wanna be a treasure too dammit.
I still embrace the Rule of Law -- guess that puts me in the minority around here!
Dang. Now i'm REALLY never gonna graduate.
Keep a simple manner for a happy life Long Cut.
You'll be missed.
"It's a rare breed that's tough on immigration, pro-gun, pro-science, and against theocratic 1st amendment revisionism."
Hey- I'm rare at something! Woohoo!
Thank you for displaying exactly what has happened to this place.
Consider all the things you MIGHT be doing right now, or the nice or kind thing you might have written, or the fact that you could have possibly said NOTHING, seeing as you "never heard of LC.
But no; possessing short of what some would call a LIFE, you had nothing better to do than be an ass on a thread, when you could have said nothing and kept your self-loathing a secret.
When people like you act that way in public, instead of the nice security of being behind the Internet; they get their asses kicked. Do you remember the last time? You wont have to for long, because like most idiots; you wont be able to keep from pissing off someone right in front of you. Damn, I hope its me.
You are so smart.
"I don't get it. You are leaving because people disagree somewhat with you? That is not a good reason to go. People who only converse with like minded individuals are in danger of losing their minds."
The lynch mob probably zeroed in on him. Here, when people disagree, name calling ensues and people are accused of being terrible things. Personal insults abound as well. I don't blame Long Cut. There is not a good dialog or debate when someone questions the status quo here, and that is the truth. An independent, free-thinking person has been run out of here, and all should be alarmed because the intellectual level of FR has just gone down a little more. I am sure the replies to my posts here will confirm the reason LC left. Yes, I just insulted some people, but for every insult I hurl, it is in reponse to 200 I have endured.
Well stated and true.
