Okay, here I am...
« on: August 22, 2011, 03:45:46 pm »
I'm Ralph (aka Soul Searcher) and I'm here because somebody invited me.

I took a quick look at the thread titles and I'm already a bit leery.  I see the word "hypocrisy" all over the place.  Really?  I don't want to sound like I have an attitude (although I sometimes do) but the minute somebody lobs that epithet at me I'm outtie (and no, I won't let the door hit me on the way out).

So before I jump in:  Who sponsors this site and who moderates it?

Hope this answers your question.

That's three conservatives and one liberal.  Mstar, you okay with this?

The most active are that lefty lunatic Mstar and myself, the just right of Attila the Hun guy. :o

Jump in and just give it a try. This isn't that other place (which we don't mention to avoid searches like the c word and that other spot leading here)

With all due respect Mstar and I both lay awake at night wondering where we went wrong because we do work well together.  8)
And the good Lord knows Mstar has been carrying his own with us despicable righty types. He needs someone to join in and help out with the heavy lifting  ;)

Help? ???

yea Im fine with it Ralph--We havent required that much moderation around here and it flows fairly freely on its own.
Despite some of the titles that may scare you off its not really vicious or personal around here...More of a learning experience and so far a learning experiment--that I am hoping we can see succeed and grow.
Despite all of our differences we are for good or ill all in this together
Please feel free to start posts on what interests you, angers you infuriates you, inspires you or whatever ideas that you have...and respond to whatever posts  in however manner you deem appropriate.
The only real rule is that there be no personal attacks---we are learning that people can most of the time disagree without being disagreeable to each other....It runs much better that way...

and please---no frickin swearing--although that one sometimes gets overlooked......and...... my pet peeve try to stay somewhat on topic and not be too ADD about things--but thats just me and isnt really an official rule
 I do keep my sword honed and sharp in the event I might need to use it  ;)--but so far there hasnt really been much need....hopefully there wont be-- despite our differences or maybe because of our differences it can be a challenging and fun place to develop and express your political thought

thanks for coming--dont be scared away---have fun--post away!



All Congressman should wear uniforms like Nascar drivers so we can properly identify their corporate sponsors.

   ;D ;D ;D 

Excie, what can I say?  Few LOLs are true LOLs -- that was a true LOL.

BTW, they can't close GreaseSpot until you hit 20,000 posts, am I right?  8)

You know I love you.   ;)

Hey thanks, bluze.  I can't say I remember chatting with you at GS but I remember some of your posts -- and your name.  I remember your name because I am "blues man" myself on more than one board.   8)

Hey, I hate to bring up an old thread again, but, it seems the person who started this thread had no problems whatsoever with the conservatives being reviled by Duffy and the other GSers - especially the libs behind the scenes on the old GS political forum.

If you have problems with the more conservative bent here, deal with it.  We are all fine with it - as you were on GS.

Hey Sunesis, good to see ya!

He had a meltdown and decided to take his toys and go home.  Same with Lovematters.  It would seem that they can't handle a forum where they can't go cry to a moderator all the time.

Haven't seen Mstar for awhile, and that one worries me.  Hope he's OK.

Hi Bluzeman!  I hope you are doing well and your illness is healing.

I just needed to take a political mental health break, read some Bible, get some perspective back :)

I have been reclaiming my inner motorcycle mama :)

Rick,

Mstar is on my friends list on Facebook, and he is still active, so hopefully that helps your concern.

Hey, motorcycle mama is cool! 

Thanks Kathy, I've been a bit concerned since he hasn't posted much lately.

As far as my health, well I have congestive heart failure.  And Tachycardia.  It's being controlled to some extent by medication.  Doc eventually wants to do a cardio-version (I think that's what he called it).  Basically, he's gonna shock me with those paddle things.  I told him hell, I can go buy a decent tazer for under a hundred bucks and save myself some cash! :)  But I have a blood clot in my heart and he can't do it till that's gone.  Now that test for that truly sucks...they run a tube down your throat and into your heart (Would love to see the roadmap for that!).  They did it while I was in the hospital once and even though they "sedated" me, I was fully aware for a good 5 minutes after they started....not fun!

But I'm still vertical and sucking air, so that's the important thing!

Good God Bluezeman - I didn't know...

I will keep you in my prayers.
