Are you tired of the posts that cite one random **** that happens to be a liberal or a conservative, just to stir things up?  The society will always have a few on the fringe.  Posting about idiots on either side is avoiding issues we all could chew on in a constructive way.  <strong>Amirite?</strong>

Yes, I agree but everyone is entitled to their own opinions and what they observe. It'll always be that way.

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.

I invite people here everyday and the number one thing that turns people off is political bait posts. I hear that all the time with this site.

It's not as bad here as I've seen on another particular site.

Yes there are worse sites for it but there are also some that are so much better in that department. Go to a site with no political bait posts and they are so much fun because there is no one trying to stir the pot.

Yes, I belong to another small site that is just friendly people. One big thing I like about the gaming Forums! No politics there at all! (biggrin)

I have been on one site for a few years and I have never seen a political post and there is virtually no trolling at all.

In my experience, few people on opinion sites are interested in actual discussion, particularly when it comes to politics.

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.

I know, - right? I mean it's not all of Hollywood for example. Just the

Actresses
Comedians
TV Producers
Cinema Producers
Music Industry
Movie Industry
Cable Networks
Union bosses

Cabbies aren't citizens so don't count them. So are all the lackeys for the

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.

There is room for everyone. Perhaps some people go on in a certain vein since they are trying to work out their issues around it.

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 knew that story was fake before seeing the post on here. Some will post anything just for the purpose of baiting people. I try to just laugh at it but it does become tedious.

Yes, and the really sad thing is that many people are so willing to just believe anything and everything that supports their narrow views. :/

That is what they do. They don't bother to check the facts first before posting. It says more about them than anything they are trying to discuss.

I'm here for the laughs. Deep thinking about anything bores the bloody pants off me because nothing is real. Some may make a carefully researched point... one that by any stretch cannot be refuted. They may believe they've scored points... but to what end? Why do some feel they must make everyone see that their way is the right way?
