    That's a shame. Not that your bro is a Commie, but that some choose to stay away because of a difference of opinion.

    , I don't give a shit about your politics.

    If you like open borders, an expanded welfare state, abortion up to birth, no school choice, the green new deal, packing the supreme court, giving DC and PR statehood, taking guns away, legislating free speech, mandatory critical race theory in the public sector, lockdowns, the iran deal, paris climate accord, defrauding courts to spy on your opponents, vaccine passports, limited qualifications to vote, etc. etc. I DO NOT CARE. I'm genuinely happy to hear why those things are great (even if it sounds like I'm being a dick).

    What bothers me is the 5 years of torture (bless the man who was the main target), gaslighting, cheating, violence, and projection that was used to get what you want.

    I would've loved to hear about all your great ideas (you probably have way more than me). But it was about hating a man SO MUCH and projecting that hate on he and half the country.

    I will never understand how a democrat can be pushed to leave a forum of any kind out of frustration related to political disagreement.
    You have schools, media, big tech, Hollywood, sports leagues, and every major corporation evangelizing for you 24/7 (and doing a good job of it).
    FBI and CIA are on your side.
    Twitter, Youtube, and Facebook are eliminating your opponents' ability to influence, coordinate, and raise capital.
    Your judges are allowed to circumvent the legislative branch to change voting laws.
    When you are down millions of votes on election night, you're allowed to shut down polling stations and count for weeks until you win with no recourse or scrutiny.
    Your potato pResident, VP, and multiple congresswomen can be guilty of everything Trump was "impeached" for (and more) with no accountability.
    Even your 'enemies' are really democrats.

    Dudes...who cares what a few people on DSP like me or anyone else think? Just rest easily knowing your worldview has become self-evident and irrefutable with the whole system fighting the battle on your behalf.

    Enjoy the misery you've sentenced us to.

    If true then that's as soft as it gets

    I really don't give a shit where people stand politically as long as they're not in my face about it. People are always going to see the world differently and disagree on many topics but it seems like some people can't handle the fact that the entire world doesn't see their way. If we all shared the same perspective on everything, the world would be a boring place. I had to delete all forms of social media because it was ruining the image I had of many family members and friends. Logging in and seeing the same people spending countless hours angrily debating politics with people is not my cup of my tea. I avoid political talk like the plague because it seems to bring out the worst in everyone and people can't just respectively disagree.

    Apparently it's not easy to separate baseball from politics for some. Don't like someone's politics.......avoid the political threads.

    Some of that is on the Dodgers and the league. Guggenheim, Manfred, Roberts, and a the local media have insisted baseball enter politics.

    think it was in a game thread and i think Lastatman said something about how moving the all star game would actually hurt minority business in ATL
    he gave a loud response about that being false and that the city was surrounded by generic restaurants so no actual harm was being done
    its pretty typical of the shout louder and then run away thing that's going on a lot everywhere but especially on the net
    i liked his takes too as i think we all do
    wish it wasn't so hard to recognize other people might not agree w you

    I just printed this and handed it out to my handful of fellow paleocons here at school.

    Best post EVER. EVER!

    Well done, TBlue...

    So and owners and employees of "generic" establishments won't be affected, just the eclectic ones?

    There are some that legitimately suck like TGI Fridays and Applebee's. But I'm not embarrassed to say I like Chili's, Outback, Olive Garden, and plenty of other places that get shit on.

    Not that that was his point. Just sayin though.

    Even if his point was somewhat accurate what about the employees and their tips etc. Sort of hard to just poo poo the economic impact even if you believe the Jim crow lies. Not one thing racist about photo id's. Unless you think certain groups are too ignant to get them. Now that would be racist.

    Yes, it was my bad placing that post in a non-politics thread. I've reached out to ckwg privately and apologized. I don't know if he's read it. I hope he comes back at some point. I miss his perspective and unique understanding of the team and game. His write-ups always made the board better, and that goes back to the ESPN days. Bluemouse also was a positive contributor. Hopefully they'll both reconsider at some point.

    like others have said its soft if that's all it takes and i hope you didn't misinterpret my post as meaning you are responsible
    it could have been any of us and a lot of free thinking people are fed up w people not willing to hear alternative pov's only theirs
    he made a lame retort and then didn't want to back it up w facts after Rube responded so he ran away
    never seen that before

    No I didn't misinterpret your post, though thanks for saying that. Still, if I could do it over I'd put my post in the politics thread. But I agree with your overall take. One of the things that made this country great was that people with opposing viewpoints would hear the other out and often find compromise in the middle. This new attitude of "agree with me or I'll shut you out" is a slippery slope, and one that I don't like to see. Still holding out hope that this doesn't describe Col Kid, and that he's just really busy with work or family or something.

    Agree to disagree and move on. We're here because of what we have in common........a love for the Dodgers.
