Good night, my friends

144 posts in this topic

I don't know if it will survive, and it surely isn't National/World News, but I thought there might be a thread where we could leave politics aside and just meet and greet and say adieu at the end of the day.  Then tomorrow we can beat each other over the head with alternative facts, but I want all of you to know I enjoy the give and take, and you all teach me new things...not always what you want to teach me.  but I am a bit of a sponge.  

 

But goodnight Matt, Calamari, Smarterthanyou and a thousand others.  I'm only thinking of those I have crossed verbal swords with.  But all of you make me think, and research and really that is what democracy is about.  The Baltimore Sun does us a great service...for free.  

 

And no, I am not dying anytime soon (to my knowledge.  Calamari could run over me with her bus).  

 

The point is I would actually like to know the people on this forum rather than exchange insults.  

 

One thread is all I ask.

Wonderful suggestion!

Wouldn't that be nice!

(Or if your from the 40's...swell!)

Likewise, I too learn a lot here from so many people.

When you stop learning or wanting to learn one might as well just close the lid.

(Anyone know the difference between a casket and a coffin?)

 

I alays enjoy you even if it's not often that we agree.

Goodnight jdsample!

No,  we seldom agree, yet we gather at this forum to debate and so seldom realize the forum is astonishing  in  history.  No heads being lopped off..  LOL.

This is a nice idea and a pleasant surprise!

(I had to get up to let the dog out)

Goodnight guys :)

Goodnight Mingo.  ( On a business trip to Florida I brought home a stuffed flamingo, so that is how that started.)

Great idea JD, and good morning everyone.  We are all just people, and of course we won't always agree.  I like to think Maya Angelou's quote holds true:

 

"We are more alike, my friends, than we are unalike."

I was tempted to post something nasty, just to return the board to what has become its normal operating mode. I am however, sitting here on the front range, in Boulder, getting ready to do some work with a group and it is just too pretty a day out here to be unpleasant.

 

Good morning all.

Goodnight guys :)

 

So now we know who let the dogs out.  See, I'm always learning.

Good morning to you JD

Morning Soulflower.  I'm not a stalker but I look for your posts.  Never an insult, no snark, but always a challenge for a conservative like me.  You make this board better.

Good morning!  Boulder, eh?  You, AttackPlan and I should meet at my winery!  I'll put on Fox News so I'm not outnumbered.  Of course, when you control the wine you are never outnumbered.

Mrs MOTR and I are both into wine. What's your winery?

Good morning all (gee it's almost good afternoon!). Hope everyone is feeling good and ready to debate, but with civility and respect. I know I sometimes slip a bit on that front so please feel free to call me out if I am not civil and respectful in arguing my position.  :D
