Voice From The Past
 
Hi,
Was thinking about ya'll so I thought I'd drop in to say Hello and Happy Early Thanksgiving!
I've changed over the years since we last talked. I don't argue politics anymore. I've got my political beliefs, others have theirs, and it just doesn't do any good to argue. In fact, I recently left an organization because I was getting sick of the political talk.
Anyways, just wanted to say Hi and God Bless You All!
Mike

Hi 80s! Very good to hear from you.

I'm afraid we're still mostly arguing politics around here...though the fact that this still exists as a subforum probably already told you that much. :D The cast of characters around here has fluctuated a good deal (as always), however those still around from your day remain essentially unchanged (as always).

Hope all is well with you, and Happy Thanksgiving to you also! :wave:

Sup 80s :up:

I didn't give a F back in the day when you were around here. Were you one of the more right-leaning posters who was chased away by our liberal wankfest?

Thanks for saying whassup regardless :wave:

Hi,
I don't think right-leaning is the proper phrase. It's actually more "right-entrenched".

I was outnumbered here, that's for sure, but it was actually my own inability to argue without getting upset that chased me away. And I wasn't the type who could throw out a zinger and be done with it. I threw tantrums. I was very ashamed of myself by the time I left. And that's why I don't argue anymore.

This forum serves a good purpose for those of you who can argue the points without getting emotionally involved. And most of the people i argued with were good at that. But I wasn't.

Anyways, nice to meet ya, thanks for the greeting. Godspeed to you!

Did ya'll know that Michael Been of The Call died in August? He was a good man.

Hi Yolland, thanks for the shout-out. You were always one of my favorites. Do you still serve as ref? You were always good at being able to soothe us savage beats.

Hi, 80's. It's nice to see you back. We tangled some but I think it ended up goodnatured. I still visit to read because some of the discussions are interesting, but I don't participate very much. I've lost my taste for politics. I'm losing my taste for people in general. But my computer desk looks out over my backyard and I can watch my crows and squirrels and since I don't speak crow or squirrel, I don't know whether they have their own version of political rants so I can remain blissfully enchanted.

Hi 80s, I also remember your posts. I lost interest in politics for a while but somehow couldn't drag myself away from FYM. My political views have shifted somewhat rightwards since 2005.

If people have the time you can learn a lot but it does require swallowing ego to get anywhere and as Yolland points out most people are where they are politically as they were in the past.

Anyways there are other subforums and U2 news areas that are much more fun which is the entire point of this site. FUN. :D

Hi 80s! :wave:

I hope that you have been well and that life has been kind to you. Take care, pop by sometime. :)

HI, you and I never got into any fights; we were always able to agree to disagree.

I really enjoy being around animals. My sister lives in an area with zebras and elks, so it's real nice to go see her. Sometimes they even come up to her yard.

I'm a real softy when it's comes to animals. I cry over the smallest animal's death. If I had to hunt for my food, I would definitely be a vegetarian.

Good to see ya! Are you the only righty left? Wait, that's confusing. Should I say "Are you the only remaining righty?"

Hi! I do love me some U2. I didn't much care for the newest album at first, but it really grew on me. I don't like Fez being Born or Cedars of Lebanon, but that's about it. Unknown Caller is awesome, and Magnificent is vintage U2.

Hi, Life has been very kind, thanks very much. Very peaceful for me. I'm getting too old, but I'm getting there gracefully!

Take care and God Bless You!
