Lol! "Members online"


Recommended Posts

I just had a look and it seems there's a shipload of us "lurkers" out there. I get it, I've been only an occasional peekster every month or so, (or less) for a long time... I got the notion a while back, that this forum seemed dominated by radical, r/w zealots, ...and one particular ... how shall I say it?... Never mind. Suffice it to say, it felt very unfriendly to a non-radical r/w tunnel-visioned dope, such as myself... But I'm quite surprised, and pleased, to see so many familiar names still in the online list. :)

Cheers Y'all!

I guess it all depends upon what you classify as radical.  For me it is someone who blindly wants to kill Petroleum products without any regard to what would be needed to give up to do so or indeed who carries on in a lifestyle accommodated / allowed by the use of products made from Petroleum Products. 

I do how ever have great regard for those who walked the walk away from any such products / including pensions from the big bad industries and now live in a log cabins, no transportation except horses/ mules, who hunt for their food (non commercial ammunitions) etc. No petroleum derived medicines etc.....

Do they exist????

I'm trying to follow and as you may recall, I'm a tad "slow". So...you characterize yourself as a "non-radical, tunnel-visioned, right-wing dope" as opposed to the dominant crowd who are "radical, right wing zealots". Have I got that right?

So if "tunnel visioned" and zealots are synonymous, the only difference is that you are non-radical but of course, as you know, your perception of radical and non-radical might wholly be the product of your "vision deficiencies"!

Ain't life grand?😁😁

Lol... Yassir. Life is grand! :)

[I knew I'd screwed up the grammar in that, but couldn't find the itch to fix it without laughing too hard at myself. :Grin-Nod:]

I don't think you have, UD. Allow me to pinch-hit for Mitch. :stirthepot:

Mitch: "radical, r/w zealots", juxtaposed with "non-radical r/w tunnel-visioned dope"

UD's transcription"non-radical, tunnel-visioned, right-wing dope"

For want of a comma! I think that Mitch omitted an important one - I suspect not where you supply another, but rather after and not before the lattermost "r/w" (i.e. as in 'non-radical-r/w, tunnel-visioned dope' - well, maybe a hyphen as well ;)). IAC, re: "synonymous" - "tunnel-visioned" modifies only the dope, & not the r/w zealots, no? & who only knows how much peripheral vision is needed to scope out radicality :P 

Cheers - IFG :b:

& p.s. .... Indeed, life is grand!

Lol I guess it takes a l/w zealot to recognize the r/w zealots. It saddens me deeply how divided we have become.

I hope you and yours have been well Mitch.

Keeping it light...
