    As much as you do?

    Is it to truly just score meaningless partisan political points by attacking the other side for actual or perceived slights?

    Or is it to actually engage, debate and challenge you're own thought-process?

    Perhaps its just a place to gauge either the general or partisan microcosm.

    Or something totally different.

    Is USMB what you expected?

    Why/why not?

    I like good discussion and I can find that every once and a while.

    I also enjoy watching people. I like trying to figure out how they think and act and while. Sometimes i think i should have gone into psychology.

    For me...... This is the place that I come to blow off steam rather than devision insidious, violent, and socially unacceptable ways to deal with the contempt, anger, frustration and rage that I feel at most of the world around me on a daily basis.

    I enjoy a good debate. Sometimes that happens.

    However, some just like to throw stones and call names.

    The many topics one can choose to participate in.

    The management.

    Most of the people here and the differing view freely expressed and our permitted choices on whether to read them, or skip on by.
