    My guess would be where you post a five paragraph post. Break it into 4 or 5 posts. Same post, more readable. Brevity is the Soul of Wit.

    It is impossible to convince anyone without communication, that takes words. The easy way is to begin to convince at gunpoint and that is how the rest of the world operates. I am sure the political gunmen have no problem convincing with little to no words.

    So we are comedians now? Tell me, does continuity mean anything? You are right, we live in a world where people cannot pay attention for more than a few seconds. That is why advertizing has to get you withing the first moments of the commercial.

    Do you suppose our elected officials in Washington DC may be cut out of the same piece of clothe that we are? No. That is why they are taking over the world while we argue of the brevity of my posts. It is the reason they will win in the end: We have had 50 years of not paying attention to what is going on around us and now we want to go in and save the country without using too many words.

    As of yet, I have not seen anyone on the left change their minds about their stance so shall we all quit wasting our time? If few words or many words either one will not convince then let's give up and admit that this is not a political discussion forum but nothing more than a pissing contest on the playground?

    I looked at it as just a little advice.....in an effort to be sure that nobody was skipping your posts. But hey, what do I know. Keep the columns coming if that's what you prefer. I'm not out anything.

    Didn't see or say anything funny.

    I guess it has somehow become a pissing contest after all. T79 said he wasn't reading your long posts. Same thing I normally get told of mine. So NF and I suggested a way to shorten them to attract the attention of the Left to get them to read them, and I end up getting a lecture? Carry on, do what you do..... :regretful:

    I believe he misinterpreted your Shakespearean quote. Not everyone is as well read as we are.

    Actually it wasn't the length of the post why I stopped. It was the content. The constant accusations, and assumptions got old. I'd read up to the part where they became condescending or personal, then scroll on. Then the next post would chastise me for firing back insults. I just took to ignoring them altogether. How many times can you call someone stupid (I'm paraphrasing) and expect to keep their attention?

    I believe he is more well read than I, actually. Perhaps, more sensitive and stubborn? I got into it last election with virtually every RP guy, and never did understand why (since I agree with most of their views). I could say Good Morning, and tick someone off.... In this case, I should've just sat back and watched the personalities get rougher and rougher, the views more and more hardened. None of us change the other's minds. I just use this as my hobby, and debate for the fun...

    I'm an Equal Opportunity Offender. At one time or another, I've ticked off every one of my friends, let alone all of my opposition!



    Sidenote: Once upon a time, 5 or 6 years ago, you would point out in proper grammer it should be 'are we', not 'we are'. :LMAO:

    In an ironic hilarity- as I was typing my last response, Megyn Kelly on Fox News had just cut off one of her guests as she does no matter which side with: 'I'm sorry, but we're done here. You're boring, and boring doesn't work.'. :LMAO:

    That is funny. Just as I was poised to hit send, something seemed amiss with my post. As I had a long and mentally draining day, I sent it as it were. Although, I do not believe "we are" is improper, however "are we" certainly has a better ring to it.

    On the other hand, I'm not penning "Hamlet" here. Certain things need to be dumbed down for the audience.

    I normally dont respond to hit and run agitators.However recent polls show 74% of the population wants to get to the bottom of this bi-partisan scandal.So,by them numbers,you and your gaspump buddy are in the minority.

    You are way more diplomatic than I am. I think more like "him and his gas pump buddy are part of the brain dead, low information crowd" that we are always talking about.

    Perhaps you should take the criticism as a compliment. In my opinion, he was saying your posts are important enough that everyone should read them. That's not so bad, is it?
