Bowing to the continued whining, complaining and general bitching from a number of posters about my posting on the American election thread, I made my
final post on 10/27. I did not do that because I wanted to but because I really though those complaining were tired of the thread and wished it dead.
I thought DW's attitude about the thread was reasonable but felt she would be relieved if the thread died a natural death.
Imagine my surprise just now when I went there only to find that the complainers themselves are still posting there. Is there a double standard for Americans and pseudo Americans?
Only jokes as far as I know, just like your last post.
Stop the vitriol, propaganda and electioneering. Jokes aren't boring. hth
Havent followed this thread, but as with many other issues people are fickle.
Humour is the best medicine, (have you seen the size of my feet)?

No! Do post a pic!!!!
And include a yardstick in the image so we can get a sense of scale.
Bear, are your feet in proportion to your hands?
<Scholar is thinking, "Do they make shoes for such feet?">
Do you wear leather shoes, O Bear?
It seems kind of opulent to skin a whole cow just for one shoe.
Of course he wears no shoes Scholar. He goes Bear foot.
On the down side, with big feet you have more toe to stub!!!

With respect to bumping one's toe:
For the rest of us, we hurt our toe, because the toe gives way to what we bump.
But, when the foot is more massive than the obstacle, would not the obstacle give way?
Bumping to the top again. I just went to the dreaded American Politics and danged if the whole crew are not still there whining, bitching, politicking and still posting. I cant believe it. Have they no morals?
OK point taken.
I have now turned the forum off. Any political posting concerning the electios before/during or after will be moved to trash immediately.
Will that help ?
And a Runrig last rites.
Well, at least now I won't spend half my internet time posting The Truth to counteract propaganda.
Hats off to you lady for making a tough call that probably won't sit well with a few vocal members.
Does this mean we are going to have all the gloating when the votes are counted in general chat now, DW?
I think it means we don't refer to it at all.
You know, a bit like that Fawlty Towers episode where Basil doesn't want to mention the war when the German tourists are staying but just can't help himself.
I noticed some prunage here.
So, its not what it may seem, Dream.
So, the day draws to a close here in the UK. The excitement of the election dissapates and we all realise it is a brand new dawn.
Good luck President-elect. I suspect that it will be both the best of times and the worst of times as every era seems to be.
