    I totally agree. I grow VERY tired of people being downright nasty in this forum. Like when someone asks for help with something and then starts arguing with the people who are trying to help. If someone calls him on it, he starts getting nasty. Or when someone asks what they think a car is worth, and then gets nasty with people if they disagree. WHY be like that. My theory in life is to "Be nice until it's time to not be nice." And discussing things on a car forum does not elevate to not being nice.

      I'm 2 miles from the Mall. I know Nebraska had some severe storms. I love the Midwest plains. Farmland that is, not cities!

          I'm not subscribed to the political forum and don't care one way or another what's posted there. It's a discussion forum to hash out political ideas and thoughts. You come off as a crybaby because you cannot deal with the fact people have different views than you so you call for the forum to go away. You must be part of the tolerant left. Glad your girl lost.

            My name is Clementine. And I endorse this message! The moderators are smart enough to have a place to put a thread when it goes this direction. This is well organized forum.

              Is 'demember' a real word??? Maybe he should "dismember" himself from the forum....

                  FABO is a volunteer organization just like a lot of others. Everybody joins for different reasons. Some to learn, some to teach, some for social contact. Some want to help, some want to be helped. Some good natured pranking and spirited discussions make it fun. Colorful characters keep it lively.

                  Some are frustrated with their lives and need someone to take it out on. Some want to rule with a iron fist because they are tired of being ruled. Doesn't take much of a man to be a bully on a computer. Plenty of computer cowards around ready to dish out abuse.

                  Unfortunate for everyone else that has to put up with the second group. Some of it is unavoidable because people are people. I do think that routine offenders should be dealt with.

                  As stated earlier, this is still America, and sincerely expressed opinions do not constitute abuse, hate speech or whatever other form of political correctness violations somebody just thought up.

                        Bailed out of that a long time ago. Hard to see friends bicker and fling shit at each other. Dont care if its in jest, there are roots to all this stuff that I would rather be seen kept under the cuff. You dont show us your dirty laundry, I don't want to see it either. You can always opt out and never know your buddy here is a militant xxxxxxx.

                          I haven't read through this whole thread.. but I don't understand the OP. If it bothers you.. just... don't... click.
                          Then again, I'm a senior network admin, and I deal with this every day from some very intelligent people..but damn... JUST...DON'T..CLICK!
                          I have lots of friends and family that I disagree with on political issues. And I used to get into political arguments with some of those on the internet.. and it got pretty heated sometimes.. it's easy to drink a few beers, get into an argument on the net, over something that face to face, while sober, would be a civil conversation.
                          Those same friends and family still come over. You know what? We don't talk politics after that first beer is cracked. And we have a good time.
                          And that's no different than just...don't..click.

                              I've never eaten eggplant in my life. Now I have to see what this is all about. By the way, pineapple on pizza is awesome.

                                    Pineapple-bacon pizza is good stuff. Almost as good as a shrimp pizza.

                                        There's a place, on the south side of The Chain 'O Lakes, just south of Waupaca Wisconsin, named 'The Wheelhouse'. You will find the best pizza you ever ate in that small joint. The shrimp pizza is very tiny shrimp, and the sauce has more of a shrimp sauce taste to it. Sounded gross to me till I actually ate one.. and it's downright amazingly good. You might run into Alex Trebek there, as he has a 'cabin' on the chain, and I've seen him there (years ago).
                                        I hate posting a turn on a thread, but in this case I feel ok. Shut the hell up about politics for a while, go have a beer and a pizza with your friends and family, and have a laugh with them. Life is short... don't waste the time you have on dumb arguments.

                                          I haven't been to the N&P in a long time. What I have learned in this life of mine(64 years), is your not going to change anyone's Political point of view, if your to the left that is where you will stay, ain't nothing going to change that. If your to the right(Me) that is where I will be till I die. And for those in the middle? You don't stand for a damn thing! To the OP accept it and move on.

                                              Dave NEO,
                                              I really do not care about politics in general, there is enough of that crap on the television and radio damn near daily, you are fighting a losing battle trying to get that forum gone. Your thoughts about it being a detriment to the site is unfounded, for any visitor can never read it unless they register to be a FABO member and put a check mark in a box like YOU DID.

                                              Personally I did not check that box as I have no desire to discuss politics here, but some people do like to discuss politics and that is also their right. You made your statement, I admire your right to make it, BUT, this is Joeys board and that section is certainly not going away.

                                              Like every one else has been stating, If you don't want to read it, then please click your username at the top right of the page, select "Preferences" from the drop down, scroll all the way down to the bottom and remove the checkmark in the very last box in the center and click "Save Changes", DONE! Then you can not be offended by posts there because you will not have access to that section, and life goes on with a lot less drama on this board.

                                              And, I would not be very surprised if this thread should suddenly disappear sometime soon.

                                                  You're absolutely on to something.


                                                  We should have a completely separate Trudeau section.
