If you're one of the posters who added to the political vitriol, you may have contributed to pushing a lunatic over the edge- there are many on here, on both sides, who continue to do this- it sickens me- I realize many are trolls who do this for the enjoyment they get, watching the reaction, but I know some of the people on these threads, and they're real. For God's sake, people, stop it. 

TinktheSprite --- 66 days ago -

Did I miss something? Someone went "over the edge"? You mean, there's even more drama and the political threads actually got more out of hand? 

Karras --- 66 days ago -

That's as dumb as a "Coexist" bumper sticker. It's not all of us that contribute to the violent left. It's the violent left being violent. From the Trump assassination play in NYC to Kathy Griffin beheading Trump. This is all on your party.

How is this similar to the Coexist bumper sticker? That stupid sticker tries to make the argument that all Religions are bad, when in fact it's Islam creating all the pain in the world. 

SagaciousSighFiGurl (Mod) --- 66 days ago -

You brought up the coexist bumper sticker. Are you asking that question to yourself??? Lol

And, that bumper sticker is not demeaning all religions, it's promoting peace between them all as equals IMO. 

whatchamacallit --- 66 days ago -

Moral, sane, adults know that the use of harsh words do not excuse violence, ever. 

mutton --- 66 days ago -

Sad to say but, nothing but the politics here anymore. Site has died, pull the plug already...

When you can only point fingers, and no longer self assess, what next? The "I did nothing.." and shrug sticks and your ok with that? So, you pester someone endlessly, and when they return fire, you claim innocence? Until all people and parties take a long, hard look at their own behavior and make a step to change, we can expect nothing to change. This is not them against us. We all live here. No one wins when the ability to self-assess behavior, say sorry, and listen has ceased to exist. Blaming simply ramps up the need for one side to be right, when obviously both sides were wrong. This shuts down communication.

Absolutely. That is the reason that decorum is required in communication. It's to prevent that from happening. When a powerful person injects personalized hateful words into the air, it normalizes that communication..like it or not. And when we cease to speak honestly, directly and civilly with one another, then what?

I'm with you mutton! Sad to say ... 

UnbeatableSoup --- 66 days ago -

Absolutely.

You should heed your own advice.

Please be specific. Don't just toss out an insult and run away. Make statements you can qualify with evidence.

It could be fixed and rebooted pretty easily if the will was there. jmho

Discussions are healthy. Healthy discussions are healthy. Discussions here with Passive Aggressive behavior, name calling, personal attacks, and undermining someone simply because their opinion differs from yours not only is an unhealthy discussion, but is says a whole lot more unhealthy things about you yourself more than anything. Basically, you should all remember what your Grandma's said, "If you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all".

Ah, some scripture from an unbeliever. Curious.

The OP is not a TROLL, she makes normal decent convo here. Who does so using one
true screen name and treats people with respect. IOW, a legitimate contributor. And now you are trying to make her out to be like you, nope not gonna work. Try more In Depth self assessment. 

AwesomeTattooedDragon --- 66 days ago -

Thanks to those posters who are the voices of reason. The rest continue to repeat the same old same old. Shame on you. 

whatchamacallit --- 66 days ago -

You're just as guilty as who? The actual shooter or those that call for violence? I think not.
Verbalizing your agitation is not, in anyway, the same as hurting someone.
No guilt here, simply stating my opinion as do others that agree and disagree. None of us are, as you say, "just as guilty" as any of those that have rioted, plundered, injured, murdered or inhibited peoples right to free speech.
If we quit arguing about what is wrong with this country, all is lost.

Ice the antagonist. Its a mod option

LOL.

Agreed. If the mods choose to do nothing then they have no business complaining about it. Expecting the 2 year olds to control themselves is akin to hallucinating. 

sdanielmcev --- 66 days ago -

That's why you got iced.

Huh? How does hate speech 'normalize' any conversation? 

the Markster --- 66 days ago -

Make me mod and soups smart remarks go straight to the ice box. day one.

Mods:
Term limits. Everyone on KU serves. Random term selection. 

UnbeatableSoup --- 66 days ago -

Such cry babies. 

them --- 65 days ago -

KU should not be such an important part of your lives. It's really sad. Maybe consider bingo or mall walking instead of sitting around with a screen all day?

I agree with you. Disagreeing is good- What goes on here, continually, is personal insults, like children. Jab, and deflect- 

jackass --- 65 days ago -

The level of hypocrisy on this site is both astounding and entertaining. Particularly from those who have no idea that they're total hypocrites... 

AwesomeTattooedDragon --- 65 days ago -

and, deflect. 

UnbeatableSoup --- 65 days ago -

I'm only here for the entertainment and hypocrisy.

Everything else is the cherry on top.

Typical. Because he disagrees with you, you want to take away his freedom of speech. You prove my point about the left's double standard. You attack Pres Trump constantly. You also attack anyone who defends him. Yet, when soup disagrees with you, you want him punished.

Exactly. Why would any rational adult get so worked up about a local discussion site. 

them --- 65 days ago -

Only the lonely would create a thread, make statement and call anyone that disagrees with that statement a troll. 

Barnstormer --- 65 days ago -

Politics are an emotional issue. Everyone has been pretty much civil in their comments. If there's a disaster in Kingwood, hurricane, etc I would help my neighbor to the point of risking my life. And I have risked my life for people in military and civil situations. What of it's someone I don't care for on KU? I'd still do it if I knew who they were. I'm pretty sure everybody else here would do the same for my family.

So, is it your contention that both sides of the political aisle are responsible for the shooting in Virginia? 

whatchamacallit --- 65 days ago -

Not only that but it seems the OP thinks that if you are angry with the other side, get emotional, and argue, call names, etc. that you are just as guilty as the one that pulled the trigger.

I do not agree that verbalizing in any way, no matter how abrasive, is equal to actual physical violence. 

tinnman --- 65 days ago -

I think disagreement is healthy and needed in a society that is purportedly free. However, I find it especially difficult to take anyone on here, or in real life, seriously when the best they can do is call names and hurl insults.

It doesn't take a special kind of elevated intellect to call someone a pubie or a libtard. It just doesn't.

However, it does take a special kind of intellect to craft an opinion, express it in even, well thought out sentences, and then be prepared to back up your opinion with well thought out reasons for why you feel that way.

That does not occur on here.

When others who have been accused of "deflecting" do so, it's not so much that they are deflecting the conversation away from the OP, it's more about showing just how hypocritical that original thought was. Both sides have been very guilty of doing this.

Pointing out hypocrisy is not bad.

Resorting to name calling and personal attacks when defending the hypocrisy charge is. It's not mature thinking.

The main point to remember is that no one's mind or opinion is going to be changed by one poster to another. The court of public opinion is the biggest arbiter of right or wrong that there is. That's why when I post, I post opinions that are backed up with fact. I'm still not above admitting I am wrong when I am.

The greatest pleasure I take on here is when someone posts something that they have obviously copied from another site without doing any actual research. Exposing their lack of preparedness is actually one of the reasons why I came back. I had been lurking for quite some time, but not posting. Holding those who stir the pot accountable, exposing their lack of original thought in front of the online community, and then repeatedly asking for their response is really the only way to stop the irresponsible posting.

But, regarding the OP, no one is responsible for this nut jobs shooting up the baseball practice. There were external forces other than politics at work and we'll never really know what those forces are. Was the public political discourse a factor? Of course it was or he wouldn't have chosen a baseball practice full of Republican politicians. But, it wasn't the sole reason for him to become unhinged. It would be easy to blame the Democrats for his acts. But, the Democrats are no more to blame for the attacks than the posters on this board are.

people, stop it.?

When is it good to stop debate over important issues?

Conservative voices are being silenced by liberals with safe zones, town hall demonstrations, and violence on college campuses.

It has resulted in more violence against conservatives.
