I was my observation in the 60's that war is much easier from an observation
helicopter or officers club than it is on the ground..
No Roy, the situation with budd has nothing to do with it. My point, I
thought should have been easy to follow. I disagreed with some one, based
off my knowledge and expertise on a subject, a subject I have been involved
with since 91 and as usual the derogatory insults and comments start, not a
rebuttal from the person I disagreed with, with factual information. I then
stood up for myself.
But yet, it's all ok as long as it comes from some in here, but not others.
I don't agree with all the postings made by Budd about the religious stuff,
but I also don't agree with the way everyone here has jumped on him and jump
on others as they see fit, just because.
Hey Craig, something I have noticed and has me wondering. If you are going
to attempt to sway or moderate (however you care to word it) the discussions
in here to stay ONLY on the topic of dodge trucks, how come you don't
interject something in to every topic that goes off topic?
As an example, this topic started with and has been an off topic topic, as
indicated in the subject. The RCR thread started OT, does not indicate that
it is an OT topic in the subject line and has gone from NASCAR to football,
but no interjection to stay on topic (as you see it) and talk only about
1) I don't read every single thread. Even if I did, the occasional OT
thread is normal, IMO. What has become abnormal is the frequency that
tempers escalate over topics that are best left alone.
2) Most threads that deal with politics or religion usually end up in
a blood pressure explosion for one or more people (including me ... in
my recent past).
3) I still maintain that I am not attempting to moderate the
discussion. It does not change the FACT that the subject of this ng is
NOT the war or your lack of or excessive knowledge thereof.
4) There are plenty of ng's that deal with politics and religion. Why
not go there to brag about your war knowledge?
5) I highly doubt that *anyone* here subscribed to talk about religion
Nope. Just hoping that we can all "just get along" and talk about the
thing we all have in common, which is the reason we subscribed to this
ng in the first place.
I put Budd in the killfile. I hope that I don't have to add you too.
If memory serves, your knowledge of Dodge trucks has helped me and many
others in the past.
Craig, it has been customary in this group to talk and to post pics of
anything we want. I like reading the ot stuff, the things that I've learned
over the years have been interesting to say the least. If you don't like the
thread, don't read it.
Unfortunately, the OT posts or On Topic ones that degrade into pissing matches
are far and away the ones with the most action/postings...
Life is sort of made up of human nature.. *g*
They need to add a body bag count. And a count of how many veterans will
return physcially or mentally disabled. And how much their health care will
cost over the next 7 decades. And how many familes have been devastated by
losing a vet or having to care for a disabled vet.
