    Poor Ivy.

    I quit for a reason.

    Have you really considered that career in stand-up? If you can say that line with a straight face in person, you've got a shot at the big time.

    You were chock full of dumb, left-leaning, piss-poor analysis throughout election season.
    Sorry you're still apparently butt-hurt over how things went down.

    At least I know what to expect from you.

    Although I hate the term, I was what you guys refer to as a homemaker for several years. I don't find it at all insulting to suggest that being a homemaker is only a vocation if you, you know, actually work at it. But that doesn't mean you can't have help and still work at it. I was a nanny for many years before (and after) I had children of my own, and that was definitely work, even though I didn't touch the housework at all beyond picking up after myself and the child while I was there. Once I had my own children, if I'd had a housekeeper, nurturing/educating/engaging/providing stimulating experiences for the children would have been plenty of work left for me to do, just as it was when I did it for someone else's children. That was one reason we decided I would stay home- we couldn't have afforded to hire me, so we were getting a great deal.

    It is interesting to read over the discussion. There is a big difference in the underlying assumptions for people discussing these issues from detached vs. entrenched positions (this does not correlate exactly to the T vs. F designations).

    The entrenched position is more apt to create an "Us vs Them" dynamic which seriously needs to be stopped. At one time it was T vs. F, or N vs. S, now it's rich vs. poor or Republicans vs. Democrats? No. Just no.

    The takeaway is that people, in general, fuckin' love them some groups.

    I prefer the detached position, thanks; it's easier to break out the tubs of popcorn and watch the show that way.

    Actually, no, if you could actually read, you'd have seen that I said I didn't read anything above where I was mentioned.

It justs seems to me people should be able to discuss thing with out having a forum tantrum, driving the whole thread off topic into a split thread and then calling in his buddies to "back him up" against other users who aren't even looking to fight with him. You also don't know what's going on so you've just come in to swing hammers at anyone you don't like.
    Well, you're finally right about one thing: I don't know what's gone on in this thread/split -- as I explicitly stated in my post.

    Of course, you quickly fall into wrongness again: I came in here because I was called here.

    Believe it or not, considering you know next-to-nothing about me, your evaluation of my intelligence really means nothing to me.

    Not a thing. I always prefer when people are clean.

    Well, for one, it's hard to get behind their ears without a good brush or spray hose; and for another, you never know what kind of horrors you'll find lurking in their belly buttons.

    Like I said, I really don't think it's about the political alignment. I may argue passionately with Peguy, Beorn, Saturned, lowtech, etc. about political issues from time to time, but it always stays civil so I feel safe doing so with them. I can be pretty sure they're not going to go to any really insulting or threatening places.
    I very much agree with this. Completely pointless to behave in that manner.
