Okay...time to mend fences.

Explained by Carla...

I get that there are people here who have fundamentally different opinions about the way this country runs. There will always be debates, arguements regarding that. People will insult, others will be insulted. Some here will never get along. I know that. But there are some here who have known (as well as you can know people online) each other for a long time. Making vague insults directed at people you know and have had laughs with, is so uncalled for. There arent enough people here to not know who is being pointed at. If you have a beef...argue, fight, make up. But please do it up front and personal. And..btw...can someone please tell me who belongs to this coven i keep reading about?

I've friends on Amirite who are left, right, religious, non religious etc so I just try keep outta it all.

Good post Carla, I agree it is past time to mend fences, but the divide is so great, I'm not sure that will ever happen. I for one am trying my best to understand the opinions of others that I don't always agree with, and to show respect, but sometimes it's hard. I would like to see more civil debate on here regarding politics.
I have no idea what this coven I keep seeing is, or who is in it. My opinions are mine alone and I am trying to stay neutral and independent.

You and I have been great friends since Sodahead days, we don't always agree, but we've never had a falling out. Thank you for always having my back, through thick and thin.

I hope I never lose you as a friend, because it hurts like hell to lose a long time friend, only to find out he never liked me to begin with.

BTW awhile back, I did send a note through "wink" saying to throw in the towel and it will all stop. Obviously it wasn't well received.

Also lately as of 2 weeks ago, it got worse for one good guy because he wanted to do the right thing and help the new member who had her identity stolen. He had my full support and it's not a witch hunt but more of a pay for what you did kinda thing. It's not over.
