Preaching to the choir ... still

I havent been on PARF for a while. Just checked it out again now.
Same old stuff.
Maybe PARF should be re-named.

Whenever I click on the "Politics and Religion" threads.... I actually cringe.
I can't articulate the language so I would for sure get eaten alive if I started
ranting.
It can be a rough crowd and sometimes I get tempted to participate, which I have a little bit in the past but I know better.

One interesting observation about adults in general is that I really don't think you are going to change their minds, even if you show the facts.

This is a great quote:

Right. I doubt that anyone has changed their mind based on some PARF post. I guess it is just a place for folks to blow off steam. No harm I guess. Going to PARF is kind of like watching Nancy Grace. I cant stand her, but sometimes I watch a few minutes of her show just to remind me how nasty she really is. And how thankful I am that I am not married to someone like that !

It can be entertaining sometimes.
More often it is not.

you have to watch Nancy Grace to be reminded why you don't like watching her, really

PARF is an occasionally entertaining place to while away time between appointments.

Actually, my Frau really likes Nancy Grace. Go figure. Sometimes I watch 2 minutes of it and then I realize Nancy hasnt changed and I have better things to do !
