The ATS community. Look at the vitriol being thrown back and forth in this thread on every single page.

It's sad that this is what this community has turned into. It is fractured because of threads like this one on both sides of the"debate", if you can even call it that, more like poo-flinging contest.

What's happening in my imagination? Are you a part of my imagination? And what does me sitting at my desk alone have to do with anything? Lol

Read through this thread and the many others like it that get posted day after day. The community is being divided down the middle, that should be obvious.

This isn't a community. It's entertainment. We're not hurting each other here. Take part, friend. Have fun with it.

Since you enjoy semantics so much:



com·mu·ni·ty
kəˈmyo͞onədē/
noun
1.
a group of people living in the same place or having a particular characteristic in common.

2.
a feeling of fellowship with others, as a result of sharing common attitudes, interests, and goals.


But going by the second definition, you may be right, this used to be a community but as of now it is being fractured. Read this thread for an example.

"Vitriol"?

It comes with debate. It comes with politics. It comes with everything now because our planet is falling apart.

If you think I'm 'dividing' people, we all are. We have division. And those making the rules are sure of it.

I'm just a cog in the Matrix. A drop in the Ocean.

YOU may see it as 'vitriol'...I see it as enlightenment.

Since your screen name is that.

Something that may not be enlightening to YOU, may be JUST what someone else needed to make a decision in life.

You don't get to dictate who or what 'divides' people. Because I can make the claim that I am UNIFYING people.

Further,

I've watched Liberals, Leftists, Progressives, even Neocons...'divide' us for decades. I've lived through this for 40 years.

The world as of LATE, is not a nice place, because in my view the LEFT paradigm/schism has thrown down the gauntlet and abandoned common sense, logic, sensibility...to where up is now down.

The gauntlet has been thrown down, and the reaction to it will get much worse, the more the "Left" squeezes.

My threads or posts are a symptom of a much larger causality.

I didn't sign up for the Information War. I wanted to live peacefully. But I'm forced to oppose the current narrative, and there are tens of millions more like me.

When logic loses, when sense is gone, there is this. I don't make the rules.

How are you unifying people? Lol. This thread is not an example of people coming together and holding hands, if anything it's people spitting in each other's faces.

By saying that Liberals oppose America, you have made them an opposition within your own mind.

How can you say that we are "all" dividing ourselves then claim you are unifying people? Are you not included in that "all" you spoke of?

But LesMisanthrope is right it is just entertainment. It's just a way to vent and get a rush because you feel like you are doing something. Hope you were not really hoping for change.

You obviously think independents are guilty of treason huh? I'm an independent voter and I find both parties disgusting. You speak of the leftist being involved when it's actually the extreme left. But then, the GOP is convinced that pro-labor Americans are socialists and put in the same category as gays and tree huggers despite the fact they usually share conservative views as well. In past arguments with neocons I've been called a socialist for being pro-union, Pro- single payer for health care. In all other issues, I'm pro-military, a capitalist, anti-abortion, gun loving, free speech loving, anti-politically correct, a veteran, a hawk, and a patriot. And I wanted border control when it wasn't cool and way before the GOP decided to make it an issue only to embarrass a democrat in an election year.

What I'm not is a neocon, a chicken hawk, got a degree with the GI Bill after service to my country, never requested deferments, never claimed I was superior with family values when most friends and family who are GOP supporters yet been divorced multiple times, not totally dysfunctional and lacking morals and ethics like my GOP friends and family, I don't excuse the fact much of the televangelists are obnoxious sex perverts, I have no need to watch a news channel that is nothing more than a propaganda source, I listen to the radio for the music and not to listen to propaganda, I place America before Isreal and any other nation. I'm pro-fair trade and I hate free trade especially after witnessing the destruction free trade done to my country. I hate the New World Order and I definitely hate the NAZI Bush clan and hold them responsible for turning my glorious country into a fascist police state. I hate the lies they used to get our nation in a preemptive war for greed. Gawd...I'm getting tired but I think you know what I'm saying. So...keep being a neocon. I prefer to be a "dependent" voter.

I never mentioned Independents, so I have no clue what you're talking about. I have been a registered Independent since 18, and only Register Republican because California laws forces me to, to vote.

Why would I be bashing myself?

This isn't a community.

I think this is just so interesting - and explains so much

That's not a dig

I think we all see communing and feel connection differently
