I'm just frustrated at seeing this site devolve into a den of wolves.

I see it more as being a bunch of sheep running 60 different directions and ramming into one another while the rest of us stand here with our mouths open in shock.

I seldom celebrate zots unless it's a known troll.

See you tomorrow. God bless and Keep you.

Dearest onyx....you betcha.

These are indeed some trying times.

Passions and strong disagreements sometimes bring out the worst in people.

It pains me though at this time to see it happen here though, if we don't pull together now I don't think we'll have a chance to do it again.

Damn I'm frustrated!.

Then you should avoid it during election years.

I've been whacked (rightly) by the moderator when I've been over the top. The rules are pretty clear.

I hear you. Cooler heads, critical thinking and reason, have to prevail and all will come to into being in due time

Reactionary fear and emotion are never good.

Same here. (and rightly so).

I look at it like this. When you see someone about to get hit by a truck, you make the attempt to save them from certain disaster. Having strong opinions is part and parcel of who we are.

It seems totally crazy to not make the best effort possible to save that person from a possibly life altering mistake. Are I/me/we wrong to do so? Opinions vary. But to me I can’t in good conscience try to stop a disaster in whatever way I can.

And if we disagree, that doesn't mean I hate you.

I've disagreed loudly (and recently) with some folks I have come to respect over many years. And if the subject isn't getting me to vote for Romney, we generally see eye-to-eye.

But I'll get loud too.

And speak my piece.

And if you aren't violating the basic rules, I'll just give as good as I get.

And then give you a recipe for my ultimate scrambled eggs.

No hate.

But I won't give up my principles.

And try and ignore the inevitable a-holes and suck-ups that will post nasty replies on the thread. They don’t represent a majority here - just a loud minority.

That was a pretty nasty thing to say just to suck-up to some guy who wrote an opus. At least there aren't many a-holes who have done that.

Why would you assume a guy who says “I don’t like the hysteria going on here like it did in 2008” automatically means he supports Mittens?

I am not much for the hysterics either and I don’t support Mittens. Some people here are acting like the very liberals I personally despise, in terms of lock-step groupthink.

Two separate issues frankly. Related, but separate.

A guy who says he is leaving FR over that “hysteria” is pretty obviously on the side that is not that of the big guy. His allusions to 2008 sounds like he must have been gung-ho for McCain in the primaries too.

Just how it seems to me. He could have made him/her self clearer but chose not to.
