    Please kill all of the political threads. (including this one, when you get a chance)

    Please.

    This is getting out of hand. The COC clearly states what is and isn't allowed, and I think we can now see the reason why they were setup that way in the first place.

    Oh I agree too, but if one side of the debate is to be aired, then it is only fair play that the other side does too, I think the BOTH sides, or all three sides or how many sides you want, have no place here.

    I also agree that Politics should not be allowed. I did not see any SIDE presented until Stu took and exception and presented VERY political points of view to excite just what happened.

    Stu sour grapes is very belittling for you. Why did you do this?

    This just does not fit the Stu that I thought that I knew.

    I'm here to run backups and make sure you all can continue to have great dialog. It's late (for me at least) and probably for our Mods as well. Lets all have some patience and let them have the opportunity to do what they volunteered to do as well as respect the opinion they choose to have.

    With all due respect Paul, the fact that you did not see any "Side" shows the problem, I VERY MUCH see a "Side" in what Nancy posted, and I strongly disagree with it, in fact, I do not accept the author's premise.

    It is not sour grapes, I'm illustrating the problem, by posting what I consider to be a very opposite point of view, on a similar subject.

    My point was illustrate how we do NOT need this kind of discussion here on our woodworking forum.

    Respectfully

    When I worked in the bars years ago ( boy am I getting old thinking about when that was) there were only a couple of rules about conversations that were not allowed Politics and religion as they create too much debate as there are too many views on the subjects. I do appreciate all the banter that we share on this forum but it is Family wood working and it would be nice to get back to the task at hand. I mean look at this egg. First one!! ( sorry couldn't resist) Oh the room is starting to spin now.

    And that is one nice egg, Drew

    Topic change:

    Oh, I did get a new 1x30 HF belt sander delivered today and was able to sharpen an axe with the 120 grit belt and some green polishing compound to the point where I was able to shave hairs off my forearm... Can't wait to get the really good belts from Lee Valley so I can go to town on all of the kitchen knives...
