Not enough people get credit for doing the dirty work that needs to be done......the pay is lousy, but somebody's gotta do it.

please link to where I 'threw in the towel' and had to 'pick it up'? I have conceded (like I just did with Grim's post of SC legislation and berated them for their action.....and I have apologized for something somewhere else (can't recall the topic now)....but I never give up. I admit when I'm wrong about something, but I don't recall anybody else here having the balls to do that when I've shown them the 'error' of their ways. Perhaps liberals don't know that the word 'sorry' is in the Webster's Dictionary because schools don't teach things like that anymore???
I should have clarified....I'm not talking to you anymore in THIS thread. And I don't believe I did anymore. I only added the "this is to JP" because again the software glitch kicked in and my post went to the original poster instead of to you when I replied. And please don't give me crap about the glitch....it happens. I don't know why.
When BO or anybody on the left clarifies anything he says, he gets a pass.........wonderful hypocricy onces again.
If I had actually thrown in the towel, I would have left SE again...........but I couldn't pass up the opportunity to have you follow me around like a dog in heat, hon. You darn near trip over yourself trying to get the first reply in when I post....it was like that before and it's been that way again since I've come back. You liberals must have been bored out of your minds trying to debate anything since you all agree on everything.....you slobber all over yourselves just like you slobber over BO........
Like Sally Field said.........You like me, you really like me........or you would ignore everything I have to say. If it pleases you, I will just stop responding completely in SE to anything YOU post....I mean I'd hate to think I actually made your day by replying in other posts.
I love watching you try to wiggle out of your own comments. (Reminds me of Clinton's asking for the definition of is is ) As for ignoring you if people don't like what you save, why don't you do the same? You can hardly wait to respond to everything.
There are times when I start to respond and just cancel it. It doesn't seem worth the effort.
I don't know what the freak your problem is with me since I've been back, but you can drop the sarcasm in your tone because it isn't necessary since I wasn't having this conversation with you. Sometimes I think you post only to see your name in print because I don't see you actually contribute anything anywhere. You don't like me, fine.....I haven't been nasty to you, but you have in a former Moderator's opinion, come close a few times to crossing the line with me a few of the other Conservatives. When I was a Mod, I would either get a post deleted by another Mod, delete it myself because I knew I crossed the line, or I would send a link to my post to ALL of you guys so if you thought I had, you had my approval ahead of time to pull it.....NO other Mod ever did that, and you know it. I hardly see any other 'regular' SE Moderators in here but a few Mods from the other forums drop in once in a while (and I already know that a Mod is a Mod is a Mod and nobody is assigned to specific ones anymore but you know what I mean). Does that mean you have a free hand to do as you please, including using crappy tones to members YOU don't agree with? Or is it still burning your butt that I was asked to come back?
As for clarification...if I remember correctly, this is the only time I've actually done that with....you make it sound like it's an every post occurrance. How many of the liberals in here have apologized for not getting their information right and somebody corrected them? How many of the liberals here have thanked somebody for posting something they didn't know?
Reply to anything....I just think that you can take the oneliner zingers and sarcasm out of your tone when you reply to me or anybody else who doesn't agree with your 'side'. We get enough of that from members, we don't need to take it from a Mod, too. As a matter of fact, this entire thread would have been deleted from the first post in the past because it was nothing but a slam to a member. Instead, it was left standing so that more crap comments could be added to it. Have things changed that drastically over the last couple of years that bad behavior is acceptable, even from a Moderator? Granted, I have tossed a few zingers back in the last few weeks, but for the most part, I have tried to keep my posts civil....I have gotten fifteen for every one I've tossed, and they are all allowed to stand. I haven't complained to anyone about them, even though I threatened Rob over one of them, and still it was allowed. I'm not even complaining now....I just want to know why things have changed so much and I can only attribute it to 'part-time SE Mods' coming in from other forums who notice something not right and doing what an SE Mod should have done or this forum has lost all control because Angeline, DK, Roger, and Jonah aren't to be found.....and you're the only one left so you do as you please when it pleases you.
Don't remember if either was while you were gone.
Angeline got flooded out a few years ago and never came back.
DK got run out of his home by hurricane (I think) and never came back.
I wonder if both didn't find after they were absent a while, the conflict here was just too much and outweighed any good. .
I got married 8 years ago, moved 4 years ago from a trailer to a small house, and had something to do more pressing than spend 4 to 5 hours a day here. Maybe I should quit, since I don't have to time to keep up and often find it depressing to watch the bickering here.
And this year my wife had surgery, chemo, and died, so I've found the pettiness here not just depressing but downright offensive. So even when I've had time, I've not replied often. In fact, I've replied then cancelled it because it wasn't worth trying with most of the discussions here.
Too much here is excessively self-righteous, obnoxious, spiteful, belittling. And before anyone hollers favoritism, it's not limited to either "side". Politics in particular has divided our country so deeply the term United States is becoming increasingly inaccurate. Maybe James was right, we should do away with the federal government and all it does and let each state make international treaties/pacts with which others they want for mutual defense. Then they can all go to hell which ever way they want to do so.
I knew about DK and Angeline, but had no heads up or knowledge about your wife. I'm so sorry for your loss. After losing two husbands to cancer and losing my mother to an aorta aneurism a few years ago, I can understand the need to distance yourself from petty garbage that seems so unimportant. Your priorities shift without your even realizing it. Please accept my deepest sympathies in your struggle to keep going forward. I don't live that far from you and if there is anything you might need, please let me know.
I didn't know until you just told us.
And yeah, you're right. I belonged to another group when I lived in Texas (it was a local group geared to the area where we were living), and the sniping there was much worse than here because the TOS was a lot looser; you could insult people all day long and not get a warning or anything. Shortly after we left I stopped posting there and I noticed immediately that my stress level was down. I try not to let it get to me, and take the more outrageous postings with as much amusement as I can. I've been an SE member for almost 15 years so it's a tough habit to break.
and, unfortunately, have reason to show personal empathy. My own self and some close family members have been struck by CA and I consider myself to be living on bonus time. Facing a fatal disease more than once has been sobering and quite a challenge to faith. I can say that it's been more difficult watching family members go through treatment than it was when receiving it myself. Sincere condolences and hope you can work through it.
Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly
Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
