Ed:
It was as always great to see you last night.
We at time disagree, but we disagree for the right reasons... we both care about our community.
Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays to you and yours!

Fec Stench

This neanderthal may very well be the next NC GOP Chairman.

But you would just love that.

Merry Christmas.

Anglico

I don't know how you do it.

I know plenty of Republicans from my day job, and they are, to a person, nice guys. But I fear that if one of them were a party official personally dedicated to policies I find reprehensible, I'm not sure I could be "cordial" long enough to finish a sentence.

My Republican friends say they just want to meet me in the middle. That's all fine and good now that they've pulled the middle so far to the right it's no longer recognizable.

Maybe it's just the dreary day, but I'm having trouble with this.

I'm not so sure being a "nice guy" makes up for all the hateful ranting he eliminated from his own blog.

"But I fear that if one of them were a party official personally dedicated to policies I find reprehensible, I'm not sure I could be "cordial" long enough to finish a sentence."

Why are you close-minded and ignorant? Why are you so hateful?

Mick

Ah, the trouble with the world today. Unfortunately it comes from far left and far right. At least some can admit their addiction to hate. Anglico maybe your trouble with meeting in the middle derives from YOUR distance from center and not the co-workers. Hmmmm?

Right says "Merry Christmas"
Left says "... neanderthal ..."

Merry and Happy to all!

Ed Cone

Actually, the neanderthal comment came from Fec, who is on the right.

The soldiers in WWI managed to have a truce on Christmas.

Surely we can manage some fellowship and good cheer?

I agree! Sorted like Ed striking a line though Batshit looney.

Anglico

Why am I so closed minded and ignorant? Must be because of my extreme right-wing parents (God rest their souls), my upbringing in the Southern Baptist Church, my four years at the US Naval Academy, my five years as Navy Officer, and . . .

. . . you get the picture.

Bubba

". . . you get the picture."

Absolutely.

All those positve influences on you were wasted.

The CA

Anglico, I don't get it. Ed puts up a concilatory comment, and you come back with some partisan junk about how essentially you don't think you could be civil to somebody who has any power in the Republican party. That's immature and scary. Sounds like those right wing parents you speak of dropped you on your head.

Ed, despite Anglico's attempt to take the conversation downhill, I agree with your remarks. I certainly believe that even you and I would get along fine despite our many differences. It's unfortunate that there are still people out there who cannot separate politics from their personal relationships.

Connie Mack Jr

A! I knew you were ignorant of Republican politics like most Americans were until the recent National elections. But getting
a concilatory or peace comment from Sam and Bubba wooing Ed to make up with them and you. Is like saying that all of those Banning comments to Bubba and Sam was a joke by Ed the whole time.

We are talking trust here A! Somehow I can't see you and Sam, Bubba along with Ed in a group Brokenback Mountain Republican love hug?

Fred Gregory

Anglico, something must have gone horribly wrong somewhere. You had every chance imaginable to turn out right. Yup, I get the picture and it ain't purtty.

Connie Jr., why do you have to come into the room , pass gas and then leave.

Anglico

1. I offer an honest statement about my own difficulty having friendly conversations with people I believe are literally destroying a country I love, and ...

2. The oh-so-civil Republican partisans here accuse my Christian parents of dropping me on my head . . . and accuse me of trying to take the conversation "downhill."

For people who seem inclined to join hands and sing Kumbaya, you sure have an odd way of showing it.

Fec Stench

I apologize to Ed and Marcus for killing the sentiment of yet another yuletide post.

The CA

Please take note of who is injecting party into this conversation and also note who is frowning on the negative behavior and also note the silence by a large number of normally loud people around here regarding that behavior. Maybe there are more people out there who agree with Anglico on this than one would think.

If Republican's were Nazi's or part of the Khmere Rouge, than I would probably agree that Anglico's comments were warranted. I couldn't really see myself being friendly with someone advocating genocide. That isn't the case here. This is simply petty behavior. Remind me if I ever see you in person Anglico not to extend my hand- you might spit on me.

Sad, really.

Fec Stench

Sam, could ya just give it a rest for once? Instead of tilting at Ed's windmill again, go get me one of your fine legal opinions on something we need, like whether this supposed illegal closed session occurred and what you think about it.

And Merry Christmas.

The CA

Fec- how in the world you dump this on me is baffling. Merry Xmas to you to. Really.

Fec Stench

Sam, I'm getting alot of stuff wrong, lately, Sorry.

Connie Mack Jr

Connie Jr., why do you have to come into the room , pass gas and then leave.* Fred Gregory

That's odd Fred! I thought Ed own or ran this site. Maybe you are one of those conservative republicans who really believes in communism and trys to practice it on the internet. Have you consider a Washer and Dryer for Xmas in order to clean out your unreality pants and comments on the net?
