    old saying: when you are up to your ass in gators it aint time to talk about draining the swamp....

    we all talk about how we are divided by the partisan bickering.....i do a thread on partisan bickering i get all kinds of comments on how right i am...then everyone goes right back to bickering....

    so here is my purposal: how long can each of you go without the hot button terms....neo con...loon liberal...demorats...(you know who you are) libtard...freeper..birther...could you as a single poster....step up to the plate and be that poster who trys to make a difference without partisan name calling?

    just a thought....a challenging thought

    sure echo...we dont wanna go too pc...but wouldnt that aid conversation instead of hampering it...i truly believe we all have basic things in common...we want a safe secure place to raise our families...to work...but we all seem to disagree on how to get here...lets work on common ground first and foremost...i know its hard but i truly believe that if we talk long enough we will find things in common...why focus so much on the differences? that does not mean to negate our differences but to learn that we are all very simple scared humans in need of a great deal of validation from others and peer reinforcement. nothing in the span of time ...alas we will never accept that....if we did we would realize that living in harmony beats the hell out of what we are living in now....and i dont think it would take much to find the common ground....we only have to drown out the drums of the extremes on both sides....the drums of distraction

    I've been trying to do that all week bones...but i will put an extra effort forth to keep even more to civility.

    I accept your challenge.

    EDIT: Look at the "bil to force obama birth cert" thread for an example of me disagreeing with a poster without being a D.B. about it.

    Yes, and a sense of humor sure helps too bones!

    My family and some of my friends are hard core conservatives. So what? I still love them and hang with them! My friends on here are libs, hard core libs, conservatives and middle of the road whatnots. Who cares? It cracks me up the ones that feel the need to say, "F*ing brainless libs" or "Stupid a$$ clueless cons" all the time. They love to label an entire group, instead of what the person is. That's why most of these political threads are so meaningless, because they turn into nothing else but mindless name calling.
