Also, let's stop responding to bloodysunday's walls of text - he won't be around to reply.

Exactly. Same.

Thanks for the apology, DaBiggest. It's rare to hear anyone apologize for anything anymore. It definitely takes a strong person to do so, so kudos to you.

I was clearly wrong in doing so. This is not to justify why I made the KAC comment or the two or three other comments in the previous last weeks, but I have been going through some personal issues (of which I will not bore anyone here with) and combined with what was going on with trump, I lost my control and said some things that certainly don't usually reflect me. And these comments were wrong and hurtful! I've been here for many years and have much respect for everyone here. In many ways you are all like an extended family and I come here often to read the comments and share my love for u2 (and my hate for trump). Those comments made by me made me realize that I became like the very person I hate so much and comment against on the trump thread. For this I am truly ashamed of and deeply sorry for having done that. With that said I look forward to being here many more years without any troubles and I will certainly promise to not let my emotions get the best of me. This was never my character until the last few weeks, so to those offended I certainly understand if you are still offended and mad at me but I hope we can all move on and that I have learnt from the mistakes I made in the last 2-3 weeks! Mods please feel free to close/move this thread should you feel it is innapropriate or in the wrong section! Thank you.


for being the bigger person and taking responsibilities for your words.

Thank you for your contributions to this forum.

The right echo chambers gave us Trump, we don't need more Trumps, regardless of side.

We need to find a way to make people hungry for real information again, and not mock it. I still don't know how you do that. The right has become the participation trophy zombies of information, whatever shows up in front of them is rewarded. No one else needs to follow that model.

So how do we make an entire swath of citizens hungry again, how do we get people to value real information, value sources, and question what's handed them even if it makes them feel good?

If we can answer that then the more informed win, and that is what we need.

#stopthecelebrationofignorance

That post had nothing to do with you dazzled, just my view on right/left media. I really do think all of us should push for a TRUE fair and balanced media. A media that is forced not to have an agenda.

Sitting w free WiFi n cold subway (no WiFi at home) got to go home after reading 7 pgs here ) somi will have to take another time to give you a note detailed answer..
but only some of AAm had a sarcastic, or Lock ng tone. Thom Hartman , Randy Rhoades and don't forget the fabulous Rachel Maddow got her "start" on AAm!
And even the others who did do sarcasim, and used to love Al Franklins "theater" plays also gave serious commentary.

He is mentally ill. The people around him have to be concerned, right?

If I had a friend, even if I agreed with them, that constantly had to compliment themselves and started to repeat themselves, I'd be concerned.

thank you to those of you who were here at the time and responded in a far more tactful and thoughtful way than i would have been able to. ashley in particular, you said exactly what i would have tried to say.
You got it. I understand it was important to you and it's easy to lose your cool.

Both you and Dabiggest, I appreciate the honesty and apologies. It's refreshing to see.

To be honest it's a bit insulting that they think we're all so dumb nobody realises what they're doing.

Someone educate me please... other than assassination, impeachment, poor health/death or the next election, is there ANY way a US president can be removed from their post?
As a fan of, well, humans, I don't wish ill health or worse on Trump. And I suspect the GOP congress won't impeach him for at least 2 years so they can get their agenda voted through.
So really, are their any other options?
