I just made a comment about that on another post. There are people that will dig around the internet for any old **** story, true or not just for the sake of a bait post. They must lead really boring lives.

How that particular poster is even still here is beyond me. He attacks on a daily basis with some of the foulest language, some of it downright abusive. His views of women, muslims, and liberals is downright scary. I have seen him threaten others.

His posts alone would make a new person stay away. You don't have to be uptight to be offended by that level of hate and imagery.

I notice that an animal loving Christian isn't bothered by his godless posts, simply because he is a conservative.

Last I checked, you aren't allowed two accounts on here either and he has a sock to back him up within seconds of his filth.

The latest posts on it's pages seem to convey it's mostly a biblical, conservative site. There should be a limit. There used to be more liberal posts, but I notice they get swarmed with opposition to shut down good conversation. I don't see liberals running in flocks to do that to their posts.

Conservative trolls are easily the worst because they are so desperate. They can't find much that is positive to say about Trump so they stir the pot with any old BS they can find that is anti-liberal. Their posts are rarely about any of the current issues that the country is facing. It is blatant trolling.

Sure we could. And I would love to see that happen on Amirite. Once upon a time I was on a site where we actually did have discussion and debate. There was still a lot of animosity and bait posts, too, but that seems to be true of all sites that aren't echo chambers.

Yep. People would rather smear, exaggerate, threaten, and yell than have an actual discussion (both online and in person, sometimes, it seems). This is the state of political discourse these days, unfortunately.

You don't want to be part of the problem? Is that a new thing? Cuz just last week you posted -

"Do you laugh out loud like I do when you see Trump supporters still posting about Hillary? Really? Do they really care about her or they just can't come up with great reasons to support Trump?"

Cuz, that kind of sounds like someone trying to stir the pot to me. But, if you've had an epiphany since then, I'm behind you 100%

Very true! I still believe a large percentage of the American public is moderate.

Perhaps the problem is that moderates are less entertaining than extremists. I'm not sure if it's the new media's fault for pushing narratives that will get people riled up (to boost ratings), or if it's our fault for reliably viewing clips of irrational people.

I have to agree with you that more people are in the middle (moderates) than on either end. I find myself a little left of center when it comes to social issues and a little right of center when it comes to economics and how we spent our money. I resent the constant comparison of the 1% to everyone else. Most of us realize we will likely never be in that 1%, but we would like to be in a position of having a good job that pays well enough for us not to have to live from paycheck to paycheck.

I'm probably similar to you. I am conservative with some issues that are personal to me, but moderate enough to not want to put that on others. I do believe in social programs that help the less fortunate and the middle class. I am not OK with any politician existing because they support big business that don't share the wealth.

Yes, that description is pretty much in line with my own. I do believe there are people who we must care for - the elderly, the disabled, children - if they cannot get proper care otherwise. I also believe that there are people deserving of welfare who have lost their jobs through no fault of their own and need a temporary leg up until they get on their feet. I don't believe in generational welfare, however. I share your view on politicians.

Not so much, I suppose because I've become accustomed to seeing those kinds of posts. They do get a bit tiresome , especially when the poster regularly demonizes the other "side", and the random **** is presented in an attempt to prove that view.
Many of those who do that, also block most everyone who dares to disagree with them. They are obviously not interested in discussions that might possibly be 'constructive'.
I noticed a couple of those kind of posts just today, with a "source" known to report stories that are blatantly false.

I would never poke at her without cause, but her run of putting down other posters while keeping them blocked is not cool.

I am opinionated too, but it's why I don't block. It would be a cheap shot to say something without leaving myself available for a discussion.
