I originally thought that this was a well balanced group that would discuss politics in an intelligent conversation.
Never mind, my comments would be construed as something else anyway.
You guys are yelling in a tube that only reflects your echos.

    We'd love to have a conversation or discussion with you. When will you start? Right now, you've not shown an interest in discussion, only in parroting off your views with no dialogue.

    Well, since I tend to congregate with friends that share my views, of course I'd want to hear those echos. I've worked too damn hard to establish my position on things to have my mind changed now.

    It's kind of like how the Democraps complain about how we won't have a dialogue on "reasonable" gun control. They don't want a dialogue, they want us to accept their diatribe.

    (you see what I did there?)

    Why, I ask, is it neccesary to make a parting post. I have never understood the need for this exit jesture. Can't folks just slip quietly into the night never to be heard from again? It adds an aire of mystery to the departure. I don't like to see folks leave as I believe it takes all kinds of people and opinions to support an interesting forum. That being said, If you don't enjoy your time here then leaving is your best option, but just leave, don't make an issue out of it if you please.

    A conversation, or regarding politics, a debate, requires two way communication. You make a statement, and then when it is answered and a question asked, you ignore it and go off on another tangent. That tangent is answered, a question asked of you, and you ignore it. Your idea of conversation is my idea of talking to a fence post. Most unsatisfying, although a fence post is a good listener.

    Airdale thinks that a semi auto and magazine ban is OK because we don't NEED then for hunting. He cited PA as a example.

    He is right. As a PA resident, I can prove that I don't need a semi auto to hunt deer. I can even prove that I do not NEED a cartridge rifle that holds more than one shot, or even a primer powered or cap powered rifle that takes quite a bit of time to reload. In fact I don't need a flintlock rifle at all to hunt deer. Even more to the point, I can prove that I don't need to hunt deer at all.

    He insists on missing the point with passion.

    No one really knows, since the OP had the frustrating habit of starting a wandering rant then not responding for a couple of days. And even then, he only responded to ONE post.

    He never offered any suggestions to the problems he complained about, only whiney sneers to OUR suggestions or questions. That is, when he bothered to follow up at all.....

    I'm thinking he was more of the hand wringing type than the thinking type.

    I wonder why he came back anyway. He posted for awhile, left after his feelings got hurt, came back, got his feelings hurt, and now he is leaving again. I too would have enjoyed for him to have argued his point of view just once. Too bad. I don't agree with Alpha, but he does argue his points in defense of his views. I have always respected that.

    Airedale, happy trails!

    This sounds about right.....:queen:

    flounce 2 (flouns)
    intr.v. flounced, flounc·ing, flounc·es
    1. a. To move in a lively or bouncy manner: The children flounced around the room in their costumes.
    b. To move with exaggerated or affected motions: flounced petulantly out of the house.
    2. To move clumsily; flounder. n. The act or motion of flouncing.

    Another one bites the dust. Oh well. He did start some interesting threads, just wish he would have participated in them a little more. Spending too much time on the 2A forum is bad for anyone, especially if you're not espousing a majority opinion most of the time. Even I need to take a break every now and then (not often), I just don't make a big deal about it.

    I had to look it up, and I figured maybe others might not know the definition as well, so I posted it as a convenience.

    Don't know whether I'll miss Airedale but that's his call.

    I think he's totally wrong, however. First of all, this is a, duh, GUN forum. This means that members here are generally very pro 2A and likely conservatives. If Air is looking for a liberal forum, there are plenty to choose from.

    Second, members here are very open minded. I've been castigated sometimes for occasionally supporting what Obama says or does, but I'm never offended by the criticism. I only get miffed if the postings are personal insults. But those folks are long gone, too, thanks to the "zebras" (moderators) who check such stuff and ban creeps. I know what unmoderated forums are like and they're not pleasant. I've been called a **** and other anti-semitic insults because I'm a strong supporter of Israel. Here, I've been disagreed with but always in a rational manner, which is fine with me. For the record, my grandfather was Jewish but converted to Christianity when he was disowned by his family for the "crime" of falling in love with a gentile girl. Nevertheless I was raised to love the Jewish faith like my own and as I grew up, I gained a love for Israel. But that's another subject...

    Air didn't really say what he expected from us. As I see it, we're pro 2A and mostly conservative, but rational and not nutjobs (well, maybe Buffy... ha ha, just kidding Buff) and all rational stances are evenly and carefully debated. Re. my thread here about the Boston bombing police response.

    So I wish Air the best in his endeavor to find a forum where everyone agrees just with him.

    Could the formula be (sashayed + flourish = flounce)?

    Nope! That don't mean what I thought it meant.
