    So produce the poll and read the results... Show "us" what you think you know about "us".

    Sheldon, I'm sorry if you perceive this as a derailment. I say simply, No mosque at the location in question.. I will read the results, but remain post free on this thread going forward...

    Peace...
    You can give peace a chance alright..

    I'll seek cover in case it goes badly..

    Sorry, I meant to say in my earlier post that I am also against building a mosque at ground zero. Not simply because it's Muslim but because doing so, under the conditions, is in very poor taste. Instead a permanent memorial park should be built there so that we never forget to always be prepared.

    And you come down on those who post ambiguous photos. I ask what does the Scout photo add to the discussion?

    I wonder what it will take for Americans to wake up and see all of this for what it really is......Never should this be allowed.

    I believe that I read somewhere a mosque would violate the zoning ordinance? Of course the libs wont let a simple law stand in the way of their agenda.

    They have no rebuttal to our objections so they stand up & shout their liberal chant "racist, zealot, xenophobe, Nazi, right winger". The more vacuous their argument the louder their shouts of racist.

    Let me clue you folks in. They (the Islamic zealots (or does Christianity only have zealots according to you?)) not only want to kill me, they want to KILL YOU TOO!!!

    You want to do something truly noble for a radical islamist? Take one for the team & earn some goat shagger his place in the afterlife. We will both be grateful.
    Never argue with an idiot. First they drag you down to their level then they beat you with experience!

    One other point... The chants of "racist" have gotten you folks allot of ground. Those of us that are not racist would be humbled by the shout as we were worried we would be labeled one.

    You have over used it & abused it. Consequently it means little now.

    More & more people I talk to tell me the same thing, when they hear racist they dig in their heals. We are fed up with it!

    Trust me, I know the quote. Still wondering what it added.

    And then... I log on today. My word. Like a bunch of little kids with "My Dad/Mom can beat up YOUR Dad/Mom" envy. My question is: WHY?

    Most of the 'Just say NO' thread wasn't even about the subject of the thread from what I read. It was just a bunch of people screaming back and forth at each other. Again: WHY?

    I saw things like:

    Atheist/atheism sort of means you do NOT believe in a God or Gods. You are probably Agnostic, believing in agnosticism which means you don't know one way or the other and really don't care.

    Sort of like "I am atheist, there is NO God." vs "I am agnostic, I don't know if there is a God or not (and really don't care)."

    Well, first off, you aren't an 'older' gent. You have 15 or 20 years before you have to start saying that. LOL
    AND, probably no one cares if you took typing in High School or not. It doesn't enter into the picture. You WILL be judged on how well you type and how well you do spelling and grammar. No excuses. This is a new age, even for young guys like me. No one really cares what schooling we had or didn't have, they judge us by what they 'see' on the screen/page in front of them. I took two years of typing a generation ahead of you, so it was probably available at your school and people on these forums will judge your typing (along with everything else). Just part of life these days.

    Why in the world would this person even be in the thread if they weren't reading the posts?

    Ah, it does mean different things, that is where the fun comes in. Don't forget "they're" also. Hummm, one sentence would be: "Their car should be over there but it appears they're late." And they all sound the same. LOL

    I remember 20-25 years ago when I would print up posters there was one I hung in my shop about that very thing. Something like:

    Teenagers! NOW is the time. Quick, leave home while you still know it ALL.

    I just copied some of that off the last page, not caring who it was posted by. Although, I did see something that made me think. Someone posted something like "This is just a gun forum, who cares if the spelling or grammar is correct?"

    If I stop to think about that, I would think "Isn't what I am posting worth doing a spell and grammar check on? Maybe reading my post twice to see if it looks okay?"

    If it ISN'T, then I have to ask myself "WHY am I posting it then?"

    Do we REALLY think of what we are doing? Do we REALLY tell ourselves "This IS so IMPORTANT that I HAVE to post it, whether I do a spell or grammar check on it or not."

    I can't ever remember me posting info that was so important that I couldn't take the time to do a spell/grammar check on it, maybe read it twice.

    That is a question I ask myself before every post I make. I always try to make sure things are spelled correctly because I know I don't type real well.

    The question to be asked is:"Do I have enough pride and respect for MYSELF to run a quick spell/grammar check while I read through this a second time before I post it."

    Did I see someone state "But I speak well." Yes, that is true.

    BUT... you ARE speaking with your keyboard NOW, in front of maybe THOUSANDS of people... with your keyboard. It is good to speak well with it also. Maybe more so, because those people can go back and LOOK at "how" you "spoke" in your post.

    These are just some of what I have seen.

    Oops. From looking at that thread, members on here have NOT been acting very adult.

    Would YOU want to have someone you are trying to make an impression on for example for a job bid or an advancement to read THAT thread and have them ask YOU "What is this all about? WHO are those people?"

    Would you be PROUD to tell that person (Boss or whomever) in a LOUD voice; "Oh, yeah, that is ummmm, me and my ummmmm, FRIENDS discussing those Muslims. We sure showed those SOB's."

    Ummm, probably NOT, right?

    We ARE on 'display' in these forums 24/7 people, out there in the electronic world for everyone to see how YOU display yourself to others through your posts.

    These are just some of my thoughts, it has been a while since I have been on here.
    Please, no one take what I have posted personal. I never even looked to see what names were with the comments. They were just used as examples.

    Enjoy... I DO, except sometimes when it looks like a bunch of smart-ass teenagers screaming and hollering at each other.
