GLP: Microcosm of AMERICA
I do not usually open threads such as Captain Obvious, but curiosity got the better of me. I even read it all! This forum has become so low and childish, that some of the more intelligent people have left. What strikes me is that most of you are Americans, I assume, and wonder what the rest of the world watching thinks. You wonder why Americans are not well thought of throughout the world. I know. Flames are coming out already. I am not the least bit worried about that as I know who I am and do not need this forum to boost my self-esteem.
The fact that there is a select group who are the “stars” and “starlet’s” in the little clique and are so widely praised and for the life of me wonder why. Only one has ever spoken to me. So if these people are so special, why are they so snobby?
The thread and others like it, is about the ugliest display of trashing of each other. This is the season of giving, sharing and LOVE. Is this the way you act with your family and friends? Do you smack your spouse/partner or kick your kids around? Your country is a mess and I do not see that this has anything to do but create more negativity. Change comes from within. I wouldn’t have half of you for a friend.
I hope you will all wake up and re-read from an objective standpoint. It seems the age mentality is no more than grade school in regards to maturity.
Incidentally, I rarely see these people on the threads with intelligent ideas.
OK..go ahead and flame!
Peace

Re: GLP: Microcosm of AMERICA
Thought maybe you were talking about the degradation of sports, which like GLP, sex, drugs, & drink, are used by the masses and government to oblitetate awareness of everyday reality.

so, (from John Birch´s earlier thread which you must have missed)...

My main concern today is the Nunn-Lugar Act. It seems that Nunn-Lugar has not been, as originally lauded to be ten years ago by the U.S. Congress, “one of the most visionary enactments of the post-Cold War period”.



Under the Nunn-Lugar Act, for the past ten years Congress has been providing approximately $1 Billion of taxpayer-burden a year to Russia and other states of the former Soviet Union to help them dismantle their nuclear warheads and their means of delivery of those warheads- missiles, long-range aircraft, and submarines. To date, American taxpayers have supported this Act of Congress to the tune of approximately $10 Billion.



Russian President Putin, just last week, announced to the world that Russia has developed and is fielding a new of ICBM weapon system of a type the world has never before seen.



So tell me, Honorable Ladies and Sirs of Congress, have we and are we, the American People, subsidizing the Russian Military-Industrial Complex by funding the Nunn-Lugar Act during the past decade and into the coming years?



Our Intelligence Services are surely lacking and need revamping if our government was totally in the dark and surprised by Mr. Putin´s’ announcement last week. It’s bordering on, if not is, malfeasance by our government if it had prior knowledge of this development and yet did nothing about stopping our indirect funding of it.



I believe that had the Nunn-Lugar Act not been enacted and funded for the past ten years, Mr. Putin would not have had been able to make this bold announcement last week.



Let us fund Nunn-Lugar for ten more years and see what other weapon-systems American´s can subsidize for the Russian military!

There is lots of hate at GLP Land. Racists and bigots run wild and free here. It’s is my hope to make a difference but most of the time I end up disappointed.

White Bird, if you´re stupid enough to think that GLP is a "microcosm of America", I can´t see how you´ve avoided being institutionalized.

Re: GLP: Microcosm of AMERICA
I think this thread is right on the money. I happen to believe that everything in some form or another is a microcosim of the larger whole.

The challenge is how to police the discord. I am not a fan of third party moderating bodies i.e. THE POLICE, in any form... but until we are able to police OURSELVES the outside police will contiue to exist.

As far as this forum is concerned I would propose not responding to the culprits even when they attack you personally. Don´t even respond to a post containing abusive comments or language.

This is just a little thing but it could lead to more pleasant experiences for those who are just simply seeking some answers and info. And by focusing on cleaning up the micro we could actually influence the macro. This to me is the inherent power lying dormant within the internet.

Don´t worry be Hopi.

White Bird, Don´t suppose you got that name from the "It´s a Beautiful Day" album, did you? Anyway, I agree with your post. I won´t respond to negative posters. I see no reason to. If someone disagrees and has good, viable reasons for disagreeing, then healthy debate is a good thing. However, this forum seems to degenerate into name calling, etc. more than in honest debate. JMHO. Peace and love, LS
