We like harmony on Amirite. The days of dissension are over... Let's call it a draw...let it go. Amirite? (+5)
says Sukiesnow on Feb 16th 17 (#805344)
I prefer harmony, and I always try to be polite and mannerly in my comments. The political posts will continue, that's just what's going on in our world today. I guess people need to choose what posts they want to reply to. If they don't like a post, political, sexual or otherwise, then it's best to bypass them. I know that's what I do, and if that happens then we will have harmony!!!!
says StarzAbove on Feb 16th 17 (#2499228)
I know that despite everything...you have your heart in the right place.
says Sukiesnow on Feb 16th 17 (#2499239)
I'm very concerned and worried about my country with Trump as president. And my comments are directed at him, not any one person on this site.
Actually I think it's been pretty peaceful around here, at least more peaceful than when the anon comments and voting was still going on. That was really war-like. lol So, Sukie, I guess there's still hope for all of us, you think? lol
says StarzAbove on Feb 16th 17 (#2499241)
You've gotten really good at doing posts...doing the poltical ones has really brought you outside of yourself... I'm proud of you.
I know to some people it might seem much...but they also aren't used to you like that...
says Sukiesnow on Feb 16th 17 (#2499358)
Thanks, I have usually been pretty passive in the past, but when I see an injustice being done I will speak out. I've never been as worried about my country as I am right now. This president is very dangerous and I will speak out as long as I can about what he is doing. People can bypass my posts, I'm fine with that.
Also, I've gone after bullies on this site too. And I will defend anyone that I see being bullied.

says Sukiesnow on Feb 16th 17 (#2499371)
Nice of you to post this and it's nice idea...BUT people won't call it a draw, there are very few posts where Trump's name does not come up. Hell, it could be a post about a cat or a rabbit and somehow someone will bring his name up.
says Markymark on Feb 16th 17 (#2499230)
says Bozette on Feb 16th 17 (#2499271)
Sorry miss Rabbit.
says Markymark on Feb 16th 17 (#2499278)
Bingo. For example, President Trump is married to a LEGAL immigrant ..yet somehow the news media, "progressive" democrats,, paid liberal trolls on the internet and celebrities have convinced half of my country into ignorantly believing that Trump is anti-IMMIGRANT??? When in fact, he as our CIC wants to deport ILLEGAL immigrants that have criminal records of committing crimes while being in the United States ILLEGALLY...and only wants to put a TEMPORARY ban on refugees entering the USA until his Administration can fix the mess of the previous Administration that blindly accepted refugees from country's whose citizens are taught to HATE Americans.

I don't know how I got drawn into things... But here it is. I enjoy all posts on Amirite and feel regret for even not being able to be on all posts that I admire.
This is my post and it is not totally concerning politics. It has somewhat become personal over time and I regret that.
says Sukiesnow on Feb 16th 17 (#2499232)
Well Sukie, it somehow does become personal after a while. There are reasons for animosity when it comes to politics. People say it's not personal, but we know that's not the case.
I wouldn't worry about, sometimes timeouts are a good thing.
says Markymark on Feb 16th 17 (#2499235)
I agree, but some timeouts go for way too long...blocking is fine; the ongoing mental/emotional dissension is where I draw the line...
I want peace. Is that so wrong.
says Sukiesnow on Feb 16th 17 (#2499246)
I'm a firm believer in Lessons Learned.
No it's not wrong, I think in someway we all want peace.
says Markymark on Feb 16th 17 (#2499254)
We? Who's "WE"?? I think you're a moderator, or at least a moderator in training. Amirite?
Anyway, with all the Trump haters and man haters around with nothing to do but ****, because their liberal, lying, lesbian heroine LOST, I disagree.
says Simplesoul on Feb 16th 17 (#2499244)
This is more about a personal insider issue than anything. SS, nothing to do with you but thank you for asking.
says Sukiesnow on Feb 16th 17 (#2499245)
I see. I thought you referred to "we at Amirite"
You don't seem to be the hater that your comradettes are.
says Simplesoul on Feb 16th 17 (#2499247)
For a little rant about "hate", that sure does sound kind of hateful.
says Piper2 on Feb 17th 17 (#2499608)
Having harmony on here would be such a wonderful thing. We all have a differences in opinions it is what make us all unique however it is important to be respectful about those differences. Just cause someone doesn't like the color blue doesn't mean their a bad person or should be called names and vice versa. If we all agreed on everything it would get pretty boring really quick.
PS. I had my first piece of fried chicken since 12/9/16, I truly feel like a person again
says Lil_Princess on Feb 16th 17 (#2499255)
When everyone agrees all the time, then only one person is doing the thinking. That's what some want, though. Only interested in THEIR thoughts, and the rest are censored. How pathetically lonely they must be.
says Simplesoul on Feb 16th 17 (#2499265)
Oh that is something nobody will ever get from me. I got a mind of my own but I can be respectful when stating why I disagree.
says Lil_Princess on Feb 16th 17 (#2499269)
Who is they????
says Carla on Feb 16th 17 (#2499462)
Oh I am a happy girl today. Over 2 months without friend chicken, I wouldn't wish that fate on my worst enemy.

Thank ya. Oh I ain't heard that song for a minute
says Lil_Princess on Feb 17th 17 (#2499867)
If people had said Trump ain't my choice and I don't think he will be a good president, but let's give him a chance..that would have been fine...but it seems it's going on and on and no one will give way...
says Platinum on Feb 16th 17 (#2499258)
4 weeks in, john......turmoil
says Carla on Feb 16th 17 (#2499463)
All exciting, just wait and see we can talk after six months....it's great we still get on ...hehe
says Platinum on Feb 17th 17 (#2499533)
"Turmoil" four freakin' weeks into Trump's 1st term..... that has been purposely FABRICATED by our country's liberal biased media, "progressive" WHITE WEALTHY elderly lifer politicians(Pelosi, Shumer, Sanders) and people like YOU on the internet who keep spewing your anti-Trump theme ad nauseam because your candidate didn't win!!
President Obama stated back in 2009/2010 while using his Democrat super majority to FORCE his "AFFORDABLE" Care Act onto the working middle class American people, with him as our CIC refusing to listen to the concerns of the minority Republicans who ACTUALLY read that Bill back then.. "elections have consequences." Therefore you all should respect your dear leader's words of wisdom stating that "elections have consequences"...right??
says Gronk17 on Feb 18th 17 (#2500445)
I think we just have to let them thrash it out Sukie.
We must retain and strengthen our own friendships with those arguing currently,then when the dust has settled we will hopefully
be able to pick up the pieces of these fractured friendships.
All the while maintaining that Bond between our friends
by reminding them just how cool things were,not so far back.
Great post babe

What fun would it be if you make a statement, "blah blah blah, amirite", and everyone agrees with you? I don't necessarily want more agreement. However, if your point is that there should be less animosity, then I agree.
says PhilboydStudge on Feb 16th 17 (#2499461)
I've never said blah blah blah, might have said cooey....
says Platinum on Feb 17th 17 (#2499535)
Right ON! :)
says Piper2 on Feb 17th 17 (#2499593)
I always have harmony.
As far as having it in political post.. i stick to people that agree with me..
Do what i have to do...
says DandyDon on Feb 17th 17 (#2499558)
Who is this "we"? There has never been harmony on this site for very long, without even supposed 'friends' squabbling over differences.
MANY people "care" about what this recent presidential inauguration bodes...
says Piper2 on Feb 17th 17 (#2499587)
We? If it was about you...you'd know it.
says Sukiesnow on Feb 17th 17 (#2499614)
Not sure what you're talking about there, Sukie. I certainly did not think your post had anything to do with me.
says Piper2 on Feb 17th 17 (#2499620)
After the chaotic news conference the president gave yesterday, everyone should be very concerned about what he's doing. He's lost his grip on reality.
says StarzAbove on Feb 17th 17 (#2499900)
Yeah.....it was SO absurd, it was almost amusing.
says Piper2 on Feb 17th 17 (#2499921)
If he's so against the media, I would like to see only one newsman be there at his next press conference, and I'm sure he would change his mind. He's a disgrace to our country.
says StarzAbove on Feb 17th 17 (#2499955)
Yes, you're probably right. I can't disagree with that last part, either.
As a kid living in Germany that second time, I was often embarrassed by association, by how some of my fellow Americans behaved. That is kind of how I'm feeling now, knowing that the whole world is looking on......
says Piper2 on Feb 17th 17 (#2499974)
Same here, I've never been ashamed of any president before, they've all made missteps, but this isn't a misstep, it's a fiasco. And it will continue until the Congress steps up to the plate and stands up for America instead of their party.
says StarzAbove on Feb 17th 17 (#2499980)
Harmony on amirite is a very nice thing to have :)
says Zolfie on Feb 17th 17 (#2499646)
Ahhh Sukie, if it's harmony that you want I'll abide by your request. However, I will be looking around for interesting things to spend my time on.
says ozzyboy on Feb 17th 17 (#2499656)
So...lack of harmony is more interesting to you?? :)
says Sukiesnow on Feb 17th 17 (#2499661)
Not necessarily. It's just boring to be bland all the time. I enjoy some blandness but I also enjoy spirit and discussion of current events. I think times are exciting these days, maybe good or not but definitely exciting.
says ozzyboy on Feb 17th 17 (#2499669)
I don't think there will be a lack of zest on Amirite...ever...:)
says Sukiesnow on Feb 17th 17 (#2499672)
Everything would be better if you all would just agree with me. Even when I'm wrong, I'm more right than wrong.
Sometimes my opinions change, but I'm still right.
says SmartAZ on Feb 17th 17 (#2499705)
I accept apologies ten fold. No draw with me Sukie, some people should find a better room to cry in. All the butt hurt tears could end up with black mold. I don't see the other side loosening their grip on the trigger... therefore I shall remain Bat man. If some douchebag is attacking me or those I agree with, I shall respond. I find it an entertaining sport.
