It wasn't you who offended me.

I'm worried about losing friends from other parts of the board by having different opinions than them, and it's just not worth it to me, that's why I want to stop.

Okay. Thanks for the clarification. I can respect your decision. Your contributions here will be missed.

Thanks but I think most people just want me to shut up and go away.

If you do want to ask me anything else about my posts or anything my email is easy, u2kitten@yahoo.com.

If everyone here had the same point of view this place would be very boring.

Absolutely. We like people to have different opinions.

It is LIFE that I respect and I do also respect the pain of those who are having to deal with death as I have done many times in my life. I have lost a lot of very close friends and family members and part of my mourning process has always included honesty about the difficulties I had with these loved ones as well as their beautiful qualities. I personally think that's completely normal and what doesn't feel authentic to me is a pollyanna-type behavior/attitude around death and suddenly saying nicer things about someone after they died than when they were alive. I just don't get it, I don't get why it's not 'human decency' to say something simple like, "I couldn't stand Reagan's politics but may he rest in peace." I haven't read every post in these Reagan threads so I can't say that the kind of insensitivity you are referring to doesn't exist here, but what I've seen has been pretty reasonable.

It'd be boring as hell without *all* honest opinions, be they liberal, conservative, left-wing or right-wing or whatever. If it were all one thing it'd be a bunch of "preaching to the choir". This would get old fast. I'm one of the people who believes in respecting the dead, so to speak, and didn't like Reagan's policies. I demonstrated against them. Am I supposed to lie and claim that I liked the guy's politics? Since when was lying the right thing to do? I can say I think the guy was honest, sincere, fundamentally decent and funny, but I can also say I didn't like his policies, and only be telling the truth.

Hi Kitty, if its me you are paraphrasing here, thats not what I mean. Im actually really quite anti abortion. Its only the small minority of cases that we have discussed that I maybe sorta kinda find it 'acceptable' (not a good choice of words but I cant think of another at the moment)

As for the eating, I dont mind people eating themselves to death as long as they pay for their own self inflicted medical costs..... but most governments would be highly unlikely to do this as the creeping majority of voters are obese - gotta keep the voters happy. Hence my comments in the other thread.

Feel free to pm at anytime. And continue to fire away with your opinions. Yes they are just about always different from mine but so what.

Is the funeral thing over with?
I stopped watching tv, and reading the news, until all this Reagan hysteria settles down.
