Re: US Thanksgiving

But aren't you telling someone to stop posting what you don't like? :) What if they want to write a post that says you should be quiet? Or are you saying that they can tell you to be quiet, and you can tell them no? And can they then say no back to you? :D I am saying stop telling me what to do. So...

Re: US Thanksgiving

Now, looking over Robert's post again, I realize it can be parsed two ways. I read it as meaning "Feel free to post what you want; stop telling me what I should and should not post." It could also be read (likely this was how Robert meant it) "Feel free to post what you want; feel fr...

Re: Global Warning/Climate Change

posting things you don't actually understand Why do you continue to claim I do not understand what I am posting? I have a well enough understanding. I talk about poking the bear because I also know you have some personality trait that will not let you ignore and move on. I post these things because...

Re: Global Warning/Climate Change

Sure, this is not ScientificResearchNet, but does it have to be InflictMyPoliticalOpinionRepeatedlyEspeciallyIfItBothersPeopleNet? If it's not worth actually discussing at a useful level, why is it worth inflicting on everyone? Is this thread really what we want people to think Mennonites are like?...

This is not ScientificResearchNet. This is MennoNet. A place where us idiots can still voice our opinions. Why do you want to shut me down? What are you afraid of?

Re: US Thanksgiving

I don't think it does. That's why I don't think the film had to spend the first 1 minute (out of a total of 5 minutes) putting it solidly in that frame.

Maybe we can focus on giving thanks, understanding the original history of the holiday, etc? For history of the h...
