Bensen Days is only weeks away. When and where will the big politics discussions and debates take place there? Just curious, since that seems to be such a hot topic here.
Gabor after you posted a pic of you wrestling your dog, probably not many:lol:
That picture was 10 + years ago.... all that muscle has turned to flubber, and he replaced the big manly dogs with a pair of kitty cats. :smokin:
just messing with you Gabor, I am sure you would still kick alot of butt!
Todd- That was a wise move to shut down these political threads. I have never seen anyones opinion be changed by debating that then usually turns to arguing, followed by name calling, and then shutting down the thread. Gabor- I agree with your line of thinking whole heartedly, but even if I didn't, you would not change my thinking in a face to face debate, nor would I change yours. I hate arguing politics. I know where I stand and seldom get drawn into these kind of debates. Same goes for religious topics. I know what I believe and what I don't believe. I doubt I can change any ones mind by debating .

Well I see it a bit differently from you. Name calling is the absence of being able to debate substance. Previous posting illustrates it very well. See thin skinned comment! When we are defeated in the arena of ideas then we change to character discussion see if that sticks. When they run into one who is willing to engage them and sink to the level, the automatic name calling comes into play, and the thread gets shut down. It is well thought out my friend it is not by accident This shouldn't be treated as a basketball game. And moderators are doing a great job by remaining neutral. If you ask them to decide for one side or the other that will spark some opposition. So the way I see it. Todd's sandbox. Todd's rules. And he said no throwing sand in here. I am game Now send me some of that Tea Heron!The only bad thing is knee jerk politics, that is what causes name calling, which I still don see around here.
