Politicals and religion bring to the surface emotions and opinions that make it difficult to consider anything somebody says objectively without also remembering that they're a douchebag Republican/Democrat.

It might be subtle, but it also might be outright obvious... the influence of these political threads will soon start to be felt in the other subforms. This place will lose something in the process. If you consider our common goal, in the end, these threads can only hurt the forum.

If the forum concludes that there's nothing wrong with the political threads, I'll probably take a break from here for the next month. Sorry guys, I feel strongly that MT is above this ****. This will be my last post in this thread. I've had my say.
i see where you are coming from sam, but if it starts spreading to the tech section, i am sure the mods will take care of it. but the BS secion is just that.

I can't even begin to imagine, ten years from now, what the economics textbooks at universities in India and Japan will have to say about this...
I think you've hit the nail in the head Joe. I couldn't be that eloquent even if I tried (oh ok, maybe if it was in Spanish I could I least try to!).

What I've been trying to convey is the fact that in my 55 years I had never been a part of such economic and political morass. I'm sorry but; from my humble point of view a lot is going to be written in the not too distant future but that will pale in comparison with the changes to my way of life (and specially that of my sons). I've begun to refer to this as the "economic and financial tsunami" because in my view that's what this mess is.

I'm just trying to vent. No intent to offend anyone in my part.
