    Default What does Multiple threads on the same News story tell us?

    I have been away for a few weeks and I was reviewing the threads.
    All of these threads where stared by the same person on the same subject.

    It tells me that someone is a little desperate.

    Tells me that some stories have such a series of unique new developments so quickly that people want to indicate the major news breaks individually.

    That which you ignore, doesn't simply go away, does it?

    Considering the number of posts added to those threads, I'd say that the topic is of VERY broad interest....

    ...or would you prefer to ignore it?

    I think geng is right in this score. The main question is: Why is every American who values a decent future not desperate? Not quiet desperation either. There needs to be barricades placed in front of almost all of the crap coming out of Trump and his minions. If it takes desperation by some to wake up the rest, then desperation it should be. Otherwise government from behind closed doors will have the shackles on before anyone notices.

    The picture of Trump and the faithful praying in the oval office with many hands laid on the dear leader's back should be an omen for any who want a free and open government that follows the Constitution. Kneeling with out stretched hands originated from slavery in biblical times when the slave submitted to shackles placed by the master. Now it is submission to shackles placed on the mind.

    Possibly because they have some faith in the self-correcting nature of our political system. A Bush Jr. Gives way to an Obama... A Bush Sr. gives way to a Clinton... and so on.

    It is extraordinarily difficult to believe that, considering what has gone on since Trump took office, that there WON'T be a backlash which helps the ship of state self-correct. When you've got hard-core Republican legislators beginning to jump ship, you know the trend is beginning to be reversed.

    I don't know how it ends. At the moment, the fact that the Trump admin can do NOTHING legislatively, despite owning both houses of Congress, is actually pretty encouraging. The constant flood of information about the behavior of the Trump clan and his minions doesn't seem to be stopping any time soon... but eventually, more and more people will come to believe that it will soon be time to restore some semblance of ethics, morals, and integrity to Washington.

    There is probably NO amount of corruption that will sway most of Trump's political base... the good news is that Trump's base isn't sufficient to sustain him, if the rest of the electorate get so outraged, that they begin to vote in appropriate numbers. We might not take back the House or Senate in 2018, but for sure, it's not going to get any better for Donald J. Trump.

    Good Morning buddy. My expert analysis has concluded that anyone talking politics on this boat forum for eight years under Bush and eight years under Obama did not make the United States better. This surely did not improve anyone’s life here, while wasting a ton of limited days on this planet that a person cannot get back. Worse yet, look at all of the loss hours of either boat building or loss hours on the water in the process.

    I don't agree that someone is desperate, but I do agree that posting new threads on the same subject is, well, silly. Take a note from the Oz crowd and start a thread about your country's politics and throw all that stuff in there.

    But it won't happen.

    I dare you, name a Trump corruption. You can't. If there was such, Schumer would have beat you to it with a camera and microphone.

    During all of your backslappings with the like minds on politics, your positions have not changed. They have only been hardened up. Your typing appears to have not increased your party's numbers on the political stage either. And last, since this is a boat forum, little boating content has been added. So again what do you have to show for all of the handwringing, or pecking politics on the keyboard? ;<}

    How does disparaging the contributions that those of us have made to political discussions enhanced YOUR life?

    Is it all that pleasing... does it make you feel good... to be judgmental?

    Do you feel better about yourself when you run down others for interests that YOU don't share?

    Talk about wasting words....

    Oh, I can. It's kinda hard to choose, actually.

    What I can't do is name something which you will acknowledge as a Trump corruption. Though I could easily sneak something in by substituting the word "Clinton" or "Obama" in first, and correcting my "typo" after you'd dropped a ton of righteous bricks.

    Hi erster,

    luckily for me I limit my time on the forum to a few minutes each morning so the angst that usually accompanies reading some of it is not too debilitating. Boatbuilding is currently more limited by physical restraints than mental ones. My fleet is being reduced by three this year as two sailboats and one powerboat are moving on to new owners. Then there is the possibility that our 28 year old HVAC system may expire. Now, that would be cause for real concern.

    You started 5 threads in 2 days on the same subject.
    4 in one day and 2 at the same time.

    Only 1 thread has gotten a lot of interest with posts and people viewing it.
    So the topic is on interest to the forum.
    I am just pointing out that you could have just started 1 thread no need to start 5.

    You and I have some similar problems, save one thing. I have not run out of wood yet, and getting rid of it while being in the rough is not as attractive as your fleet. Currently my concern is to get the new hull in the water while the weather is still warm for our expected ride at break neck speeds. hehe.

    No, Rob; you are exempt. You post on multiple topics, and even start threads on different subjects. Sorry, buddy, but you are not one of that clique...

    Oh, a challenge, eh? Harhar.

    I was going to answer the OP by saying it's obvious someone hates Doodles. Why else flood the Bilge? Hehehe.

    By the by. Thanks. I do try to share a variety of oddments I find interesting. I, for one, don't mind all the political back and forth, as long as it remains civil. Shoot, a body can learn something, if they ain't careful.

    I just think of this place like the diner or the barbershop. Gosh, I just don't want to be the old cuss dragging out the same old dead horse every morning. Although, they have their place at the counter, too.

    For the record:

    Yes, I start a lot of political threads. Since some of those threads get a lot of posts, I can only presume that lots of others find them interesting... but it doesn't matter to me whether anyone else contributes to the threads, or not... I'm not doing this for the sake of receiving any kind of validation.

    No, it's not true that I only post political threads. I DO post threads on other topics. Most of them don't get much attention.. but some do.

    And finally, people who complain about other people posting threads clearly have a problem with insecurity.... or, as I mentioned elsewhere, disparaging other people evidently makes them feel good about themselves.

    Which is pretty sick.

    I'd be willing to bet... you're incorrect. Sure... it had no direct effect. But if direct effect is all you are looking for... I'd call that short-sighted.

    One small example: all the discussion here gave me perspective and ammunition with which to write more effective letters and emails to my elected representatives.

    I hear Jared keeps updating his foreign contacts list in order for his security clearance to be valid, apparently he forgot, multiple times.
