Watch out! Richard just might shut (lock) this thread down.

In all seriousness, the forum is still new so you won't find some of the topics you listed here for a long time. The forum is also set up to exclude some expletives if one so desires to use them.

---begin soapbox section---

For me personally, I believe in free speech. You have to take in the good and the bad, otherwise, it's not free speech. The only way that I can learn to stay open-minded is to listen.

---end soapbox section---

While I believe in the above soapbox comment, we're dwelling in a slippery slope running this forum if we believe that we can include vulgar lanquage and porn. This forum is privately funded and MB can shut us down in a heartbeat if some things go against some virtues of any of its employees.

This can be said for any topic too, but I think we're okay.

ps. Threads can sure go off on a tangent sometimes.

But then, I asked for it, didn't I?)

Oh yeah, one more thing:

"Peace can only be found through mediation, not guns."

My reply is a USA newspaper headline circa 1942, "JAP INVASION FORCE STEAMING SOUTH, THOUGHT TO BE BOUND FOR AUSTRALIA!"

I envision a subsequent headline from an Aussie newspaper, "THREE-MAN MEDIATION TEAM LEAVES SYDNEY IN ROWBOAT; HOPES TO HEAD OFF JAP INVASION FORCE"
Hi John

A few links John being ex Navy you'll appreciate it as the to US navy forces being involved
16 June 1942 - Japanese bombing raid on the Darwin Town area

True story
Peace Not war.
Hell world war three, I'll explain this in two parts as part of the original context was lost via a funny photo from Don.
Don posted a photo with a funny little poem of that bird who seems to have started a war of words! OK The last line was I think I'll shot the little bird, it was just a poetic Joke end of Story, next thread I put in a pictorial comment of the the bird pooping on a head, sort of a funny revenge thing.
Don followed up by the comments of the 'Cardinal' bird which annoyed him to the extent of a non inflammatory thought, if I shot the thing I/d most likely hit every thing but the bird , must be a bad shot. but Don also said one needs to have a license! 'for the use of the Gun'.
MY thoughts were and this is where the thread went off a little was to a major event in Tasmania where a disillusioned man shot 36 people in one day mass murder with high powered sports gun that had automatic repeaters.
My thoughts at that time were of the event at Port Arthur as to what the person did, where he systematically one by one, murdered 36 innocent lives ten years ago in part my immediate thoughts where to , one a wife and two small beautiful children who also lost their lives on the day.
There was never a moment of flair intended, no one pro or anti gun would argue against gun control, that is better managed for a safer environment for people to go about there every day business without the fear of being shot because of what ever reason one could think of?.
So Lets leave it at that, in hindsight of the moment I went astray with the thread, but it was out of thought to the dangers of weapons, after all its not the gun it's the person who uses it that does the damage.

I have too many friends on this forum to want to know their views on guns, religion, politics -- or porn , and it would be better if they did not know mine.
I guess we better not even think about bringing up the subject of ex-governor "Flip-Flop" then!!!!
