Swag said something that stuck with me when he said “we don’t have to be at each other’s throats ALL the time.” And he’s right.

I like them too and try to pull back on them. It's just hard to sometimes, I'm kinda an ahole in here. I think helps me not be one in reality.

Pshhh, this place helps me hone my assholery to a nice shiny edge. I work at 201 Poplar, the Shelby County main jail, being an ass-hole is almost de rigueur.

201 is still open?

Dont worry, your grafitti pledge of love to your shower buddy is still there.

Why would anyone ignore anyone? You could miss out on some good laughs from the pearl clutching outrage from both sides of the aisle on this board.

I have zero people on ignore. I can always just scroll over what they wrote if I think it's ridiculous and if not I can "try" and understand their point.

I wonder if we would ignore people if we were all in the same room having a beer together? Would the discord be as strong?

Besides, liberals have their use. I tell my kids that if they're ever in a situation where they can't make up their mind, just ask a liberal what they would do... and do the opposite.

Liberals have other uses, too. If I ever wonder if I'm losing my sanity I just listen to a liberal speak for a few minutes and quickly realize that I'm much better off than I thought I was. They're sort of a reality check. If I ever think that CommieTom says something rational or intelligent then I know it'll be time to seek professional help.

Of course it wouldn't. There would be a small percentage of the people on here who would name call & shout at the rain as they do on here, but that's because they're so far down the rabbit hole they're incapable of seeing past their own immediate world. For the most part people would discuss and likely find some common ground.

Social media outlets like this, while entertaining for discussion sometimes, have really made the polarization worse.

Social media really has polarized society and exacerbated issues. It's also opened and entirely new avenue for bullying, especially Fakebook.

This.......plus, at least most men, have learned that in face to face interactions - being too big of an a$$hole can and sometimes does lead to a punch in the mouth.04-cheers

Men have to decide, “do I really want an actual fight” or is tempering what I say a better option.

Life's too short to get upset about people on the internet.

And who started that? Libtards. Argue if you want. Most conservatives simply want to be left alone, to live their lives, to raise their children, to worship their God. I personally have never in my whole life been political until about a year ago. You asswipes forced this on me. You forced this on a lot of us. I hope you continue to be happy however that turns out.

Yup - you would think it would free up discussion and debate, instead it has become a who can yell the loudest and put you down the most cockfight to drown out those you don't agree with.

Internet bullying is popular because there is no threat of physical confrontation. This freedom of expression is filtering out of the anonymous zone however. You get used to shooting your mouth off on the internets, and you feel emboldened to do it out in public because you are so used to saying whatever you want.

I am certainly not the toughest guy in the room, however I am physically imposing enough that many would not say to my face what many have said here (to me or others). It is the best and worst thing about social media. You can express yourself freely, but you can also express yourself without threat or fear of a beat down if you want to be aggressive about it.


I am fine with opposing views, I am not fine with smarmy and often belittling ways of presentation. "I think Trump is an A-Hole" is much different that "I think Trump is an A-Hole and you are a racist for backing him". I am probably going to knock you out if you say that to my face - but most would never say that to my face.

TigerGreen is good with me, we all take our shots and low blows at people, but you are generally respectful of the proper discourse.

I am willing to bet that most if not all of those on my ignore list would not take the tone they take on this board if we were sitting at the bar talking across the table at each other.

I think the twittersphere is by far and away the more toxic cesspool. Course I don't do any "newsfeeds" or group garbage on the facebook either. I get to see pictures of old HS friends dogs and kids...
