If I stop responding it doesn't mean I've conceded the point or agree with you. It only means I've made my point and I don't mind you having the last word. Please wait a few minutes before "quoting" me. I often correct errors for a minute or two after I post before the final product is ready.

Forum Circa 2020, The Absence of Reason, and the Prevalence of Emotionalism and Political Bigotry.

by Captain Adverse on 06-23-20 at 03:00 PM
IMO there is a very real and rapidly growing problem in the world of political discourse. That being the absence of reason, and the substitution of emotionalism and political bigotry.

First, let’s define those terms as I use them in this post:

1. Emotionalism: An inclination to rely on or place too much value on emotion when dealing with issues or confrontations, as opposed to resorting to reason when dealing with reality.

2. Political Bigotry: Obstinate

Time To Re-Introduce Myself.

by Captain Adverse on 08-21-17 at 07:41 PM
I've been a member of this Forum now for a little over 4 years. Back in 2013 I posted the following in a "Hi, I'm New" statement.

I repost this to help both old and new members who question my motives based on my recent responses both in support of the current administration, and other political issue threads.

Below are some of my positions on Major Issues. The list is not exhaustive.

If you feel in agreement on enough and can accept that
