I'm joining today. A friend,or dude that I thought was a friend,was emailing me JS reports and stopped after he found out I'm lean more toward the left. I always found his practice reports to be very accurate and we don't get many here so I'm ponying up and joining.
Who else is already there?
That dude be an idiot, bro.
Just like my "friend" I had a conversation with last night. I always tell people that I don't talk politics with friends. She wouldn't accept that. Then when she said that there are only two "blocks" and that she was on one (Democrat) and I was on the other (Republican). I told her simply that I wasn't stuck on either block and I get to freely walking down the street and enjoy life moreso that those stuck on their respective blocks.
She then had the gall to tell me that I indeed was on the "other block" but that I just misrepresent myself when speaking about the subject. So basically, it's one or the other, and if not.. you're a liar.
That's one of the biggest problems with America today. It's either right or left, dem or con, with us or against us. No common ground to be shared. Complete bullshit.

You two should know better. GetHooked takes his politics very serious.
Kyle. we're still buddies, right?
Yeah it's stupid man. I enjoy conversation with people and what political party you involve yourself with never even enters my mind to inquire about. I don't care. I hate that it even matters
It is serious.
Help me out. GH takes his politics " very serious" or "very seriously"???
Both. I can't help it. I used to love my country.
Thuper, thuper, serial. Second only to the hunt for manbearpig.
Hahaha, autocorrect didn't even attempt to change manbearpig.
I got brains. I got big ol' brains. I got dinosaur brains.
You don't use one adverb to modify another so, "very serious".
You want me to ask Siri?
I don't want you to have to hide me from your GOP buddies. I think once you've judged a man he's judged. To come at me with. "It seems very leftist to spread the wealth. I think I should stop doing it.
" was laughable and petty. You had no problem "spreading the wealth" until you found out I support gays or didn't dig Romney much or whatever led you to cut me off. I tried to preserve what mutual respect we had for each other by not engaging you when you pmd me about Obamacare like 8 months ago. It's just sad that you drew a line. I have no quarrels with you,but I wouldn't really call you a buddy at this point.
Oh man.. I was just joking about your friend being GH. No clue he was the guy. Funny
Since I apparently just lost a friend, do you want to be my friend?
That is not correct. An adverb can modify an adverb. Serious is an adjective which would modify the noun.
So, it is either: Hooked is very serious about politics; or Hooked takes politics very seriously.
I was thinking that blocks are important. I don't think Gray gets many yards without them. Ash wouldn't have enough time to complete passes.
You need to pick a block.
To quote some dude from Young Guns II, "I'd rather drink turpentine and piss on a brush fire."
Dang. The world is getting to be a smaller place. LiOK, Black Shipley and Coach C.
Plus, I just watched most of my freedoms take a major hit with the election.
That's the problem. You misplace that frustration. It shouldn't even matter amongst friends. This is the problem with putting political discussion on message boards. Like it or not,friends are lost. Every time. And that's horrible because of you're friends,opinions shouldn't matter anyways.

You make a good point.
If you sign up to Inside Texas, it confirms my opinion of you as an idiot.
All the talent on IT came over here way back - Gerry, Jeff, etc are all ex-IT staffers.
The two main cogs in the IT wheel, Ross and Ross, are two of the laziest mofos in the business.
Take it from an ex-subscriber. Inside Texas sucks.
However, they do have a politics board which I'm sure will appeal to you.
