Devi,

Please don't :ignore. I you!!

The thread is about frustrations - and I guess we did get off track - but that just seems to be par for the course these days. There is something irritating when it appears some Gnostic is patronizing, but that is just another sign of the dangerous polarization (I don't think I have ever used that word so often in my life as I have in this thread! - But right now I'm too tired to think of another word) that we need to deal with. That is why you don't see me in Spirituality . . . but that is T!

I guess it just amazed me that I could feel so strongly right now and so many Americans seem to think everything is fine and we need to hang on to old status quo! "Never underestimate the power of denial!" (American Beauty)

Oh goodness, I you too El C!

It takes a lot to shut me up so no worry.

I am taking a haitus though, just need to get back to that thing they call life...

Cheers all!

I have decided not to vote anymore, because I no longer believe it makes any difference.

Even though sometimes I can't say it doesn't take me back abit how someone could be so sarcastic about something SO important to me.
At least you'll get the last laugh. Someday you'll rise to the heavens, while I will sink into the bowels of hell, where I will have a pineapple stuffed up my bottom every day.

Is there e-mail in the afterlife? Perhaps I can call you collect.

Let's please bring this back around to the discussion of political frustration or we'll have to shut it down. Tads of religion in this can be acceptable as it applies to the topic but if the thread turns to discussion of religion as a focus then it's getting off track and off topic for the board. Adn you all know debate is not acceptable in Spirituality so no chance of moving the thread to continue it there.

The last nine posts have nothing to do with this discussion. I can apppreciate the need for humor to keep things friendly but please try to add the humor to your discussion posts rather than stand alone stuff.

If you're frustrated politically post to the thread. If you're not and you have your spirituality to thank for that then please share it in Spirituality, not in Activism. That should help keep the discussion on track and open for posting.

Amen to that! I think that is one of my biggest sources of frustration - like when I was saying for years that someone in our family was an alcoholic and everyone denied it - then years later when the stuff hit the fan the same one returned and said, "Hey, know what? So & so's an alcoholic!" That is how I feel about the US, and I wonder when they are going to see it, too!

Or is this not a cause worth standing up for - like abortion?

Actually the report said that the leading cause of death among pregnan women besides medical complications is murder. They really sensationalized it. MY pregnant SIL called me 5 seconds after the report freaked out, but I had listened carefully when they mumbled about "besides medical complications." Anyway, proceed with the debate Hilarys and Nursing Mother

:LOL edited to say NO!! No I have never been this frustrated. After all this other talk I lost track of the question! :LOL

No, I'm about as angry and disgusted as you can get. :

The thought of Bush being in the white house for another 4 years sends chills down my spine. Ick. I hope a Democrat steps forward who can win the election in '04!

I haven't - maybe the board somehow thought you were trying to do some Mod work - let us know how it comes out!

veganmamma - I know what you mean, I spend so much time these days :, thank goodness Cynthia is here to sort things out!
