Hi everyone, if you would like to be given a special permission set so politics is not viewable, let me know. I can do that.
Alternatively, if you are part of the "No Politics" filter and can still see politics, let me know. Some users have reported it but I think I have figured out how to fix it.

    What is more likely: That you will changes the minds of all those who don't agree with you, OR accept them as they are, perhaps simply coming from a different place, a different level of enlightenment?

Ha!! Decided to stay away from the politics forum for a week.
What a relief.  :beverage:

I come back and see the same people spewing hatred, refusing to see the facts, feeling it's OK to hate your brothers.

There's another way folks!   :peaceman:

Give it all up and throw it into the hands of One Who Knows the answer to all situations.

There's a world of peace and security waiting for you if you'll only give up your prejudices.

Good luck!

So Tio Vinny, those of us who disagree with you politically are "hateful", don't see "facts", and hate our brothers....   Oh, and God is the answer if we give up our "prejudices", which in other words is that we give up our opinions, which are in contrary to yours.  Hey, I'll give that a shot...!   Yep, nope. Not happening....  Look inside yourself and your tactics here and see if you are not really the actual one that you you accuse others of being.....?  Me thinks thou dost protest too much....!  Chris   


There are 3,141 counties in the United States.

Trump won 3,084 of them.
Clinton won 57.

All I'm saying is that I disagree with this current trend to accept that criticizing our neighbors is an OK attitude to incorporate into our dialogue.

You don't HAVE TO give up hatred and prejudice, but there is no justification for it,

and you cannot attain peace of mind when you harbor intense hatred for your fellow man.

Too bad Jussie did not read your post...!

 

Hates Trump, and anyone who voted for him..  He really, really does, saw a few interviews...

Hates White people in general, I think, pretty sure....

Hates heteros....   Pretty sure...  

Hates only making $100,000 an episode, poor, underpaid black guy....  Just like Colin K.....   So underpaid...

Hates red hats..........

Likes a subway sandwich at 0200 on a cold Chicago night....   Nope, not leaving my room at 0200, in Chicago, in the winter, not ever....

Ahh...  The left wing progressives, so sure they are rightous that they fail to see their very own hatred and prejudices....!   

And they get all the media buzz until we find out it was false and then crickets from the same, CNN, MSNBC.........etc....

It's kinda funny to watch if it was not just so sad. 

Thank you Tio Vinny for serving this up on a warm plate........

I take a week off, come back and everyone is still spewing hatred.

No minds were changed. No progress towards reconciliation.

No Peace.   Sad.
As the great philosopher, Rodney King, once said: "Can't we all just get along?"

 

Fact is, we are ALL God's Children.

That includes Trump and Barr, but also Pelosi, Ocacio-Cortes, and even Maxine Waters.

Try it some time.
Take a week off from political debate, and let us know if you feel better.
I did!

Hah! You have a knack for finding my weak spot, Chris.

Well, I'll give you credit for honesty.
Looking back and doing a self-evaluation I DO see some intolerance in some of my posts, and I apologize.
I think maybe I'll take more time off, or better yet see if I can stop torturing people with my rants.

Instead, I will continue to post, but only offering positive viewpoints and refrain from guilt-tripping.
I give you permission to be my overseer should I fail to live up to a more positive standard.

Guru Vinny goes within. Namaste!                          :sun:
