I like to read what's going on and moreso, hear people's opinion on different subjects- people I trust & people I don't agree with. It makes me think more. And I like adding my 2c every now and then.

I'm interested in what's going on in the world and I like discussing those things.

Just to elaborate on my first post, I agree with all of the people who have said reading opinions of all kinds is very important to keeping minds sharp and focused. People here state their views with intelligence and conviction.

I see it as a social experiment in many ways.

I like what everybody writes; I don't have anybody blocked.

My name is on that list! Whoop! Usually having my name on a list is a bad thing..but this time it seems good..so I hope.

I havent been here as much as I used to. I like debating. I found a few people in one of my classes that also have a(n) (un)healthy obsession with it. It can be really fun sharing ideas. I find it is easiest to learn something when someone else is speaking passionately about them. We played a sorta game once where we picked a topic and chose the opposite side of what we really believed in and fought that side. I got to fight for the existance of a god. Good times

Explanation:

When I thought about the question “Why I come to FYM” I wanted to say it is because of the thoughtful posts from the regular FYM posters.

I pasted the names from an active recent thread. Supreme Court Strikes Down Texas Sodomy Law

I expected most of the regulars posted in that thread.

I added some of the regulars that I could remember that were missing.


Because I knew I would no doubt leave some out I added the cryptic “these people either pm me or block me, thank you “ header.

It should have read PM *ed* or block*ed* me. (I did check my PMs)

I think I come here because in "real life", I am surrounded by other conservatives. Since I am a consultant and work out of my house, I don't have much interaction with people other than friends and family, and we all pretty much think along the same lines politically. FYM gives good opportunity for debate, and I like that.
