I totally disagree *#@!

Is anyone else dismayed by the level of rancor on some of these threads. Why are peple getting so worked up and hostile?

are they grouchy because they are hungry?

4:45-- lol!

I personally think it has to do with the American political atmosphere... With this kind of leadership it's no wonder we're at each other’s throats!

Ha!! This is great. It is all Bush's Fault!!!

Ah, this is almost as good as yesterday's thread. I think we should start a thread of things "I Blame Bush" for. Its better than blaming Canada.

FYI- I blame Bush for my car breaking down the other day. Without good leadership, this country's car mechanics fear nothing and screw up your car. You know, with Enron and all. Karl Rove has to fit into this whole car mechanic no accountability thing somehow.

My house is a mess, can I blame that on politics, too?? Also, sometimes my kids misbehave, I would like to blame the gov't for that, as well.

OP - you are absolutely correct. I was just thinking the EXACT SAME THING this afternoon. You are correct about the threads you named, but it is in many more threads. There will be maybe just 1 or 2 snide or rude comments that are easy to ignore, but if you are following all of the threads it gets to you.

More than just a couple of posts ... angry comments pop up all over the place. It is the culture wars right here on PT!

You know what, I belong to a lot of online communities and this stuff happens everywhere. It really is just people. When you get a lot of people together, you're going to have clashes. Think about school, work, etc. - there's always some kind of disagreement or drama going on. People have different personalities, different ways of saying things, different beliefs, different ideas, and there will always be clashes. We can't have a utopia.

My personal philosophy is, I just won't bother to post on or continue reading a thread that I don't have anything constructive to add to, that has nothing to do with me personally or that is going in a direction I don't like. Why add fuel to a fire? People are certainly free to say whatever they want, but I don't have to read it if I don't want to. I have better things to do with my time. Like trying to avoid those doughnuts that keep calling my name.
