Now that one is really recycled. I saw a sign that said the same thing about Nixon in a family home video of a 70s march on Washington.

As for the op, as much as I disdain Bush and supported Obama, I found it more cringe-worthy than funny, more snide than amusing. For what it's worth. I think there are ways of being humorous without being derogatory to the opposition, most of whom really believe that they want the best for the country. Unless we want similar treatment in return....

Treatment in return? Apparently you don't listen to or read the webpages of the wingnut radio bloviators and Ann Coulter.

Just because they do it doesn't mean I'm justified in returning it. I think returning it only encourages more of it, and that doesn't advance any goals I have.

The best solution for Ann Coulter is to ignore her. She has nothing to say and doesn't change anyone's mind. Paying attention to her only encourages ridiculous, exaggerated, one-sided, baseless accusations by one side against the other.

Sounds like some of the other stuff going on on gunks.com these days!

If you guys want to declare a moratorium or at least a hiatus on verbal vitriol, I'm in.

So am I. I feel the need to start a thread with photos of fluffy kittens, and rainbows, and unicorns, and lot of happy thoughts to counteract some of the acrimony in the air here these days.

What gives the two of you the right to take away my vitriol?

Well, I'm not a kitten, but am I fluffy enough?

Yes! Everyone needs to chew on some eucalyptus leaves and mellow out. It is almost the weekend, after all.
