    I don't know if you'll ever find out because OP hasn't come forward with some generous back and forth dialogue.

    The current trend is:

    1. Create a thread
    2. Get absolutely dumpstered in the replies
    3. Don't respond
    4. Create new topic about a thing 3 people on Twitter are mad about

    American internment camps were used to separate Japanese citizens from the general populace during World War II because the government was not willing to trust they may be spies. Now if I had said Concentration Camp, I could see how you would misunderstand my intent. Of course, it wouldn't surprise me if you were, in fact, intentionally misrepresenting my statement. Also, your choice of terminology is impossible as genocide would imply the end of a people but Twits are like cockroaches can never be ended. A better choice of words would have been simply "mass murder."

    Also, Lone, you're right, it is the trend. It's the kind of thing Twits do all of the time. Only contrarywise, I don't drop in my statements in a place where I can easily turn off the comments if I don't like what people have to say.

    Why don't you people find something useful to do rather than dogpiling your "witty rapport" into my threads?

    smurf. i think i need a new sig already
    Primary factor of concern: legal. As for older people, they just have to be happy, spritely, and have a pretty tight physique. Younger can always tone up and lose weight, but older people have to constantly work at it. I can't love someone who I have to physically take care of on the daily. Resentment is a strong emotion that runs deep in my family.

    I mean, this is a thread about Chris Pratt and Twitter. 'Finding something useful to do' has kinda gone out the window from the start.

    Why don't you stop having opinions like that anyone should be put in internment camps? Personally I think crimes against humanity are bad.

    It's actually pretty easy to block forum users you don't want to interact with.

    Is there anything else you'd like to be wrong about?

    Seems like it could have been a learning experience with good dialog on both sides, but nobody wanted that. Don't be too quick to chase people away. That's how you create Trump supporters and people who are scared of the left. We used to have some good conservatives in here and real discussions of differing opinions without getting nasty. Unfortunately they didn't like how liberal the whole place was and eventually gave up and moved on. Personally I think a lot of problems with politics currently is everyone is in an echo chamber and not willing to let anyone else speak, let alone try to understand where they are coming from. Pardon the whiskey talking, but I can disagree with Merc, and hope some of his comments were hyperbole, and not hate him for it. But take my ramblings with a grain of salt. I'm pretty liberal myself and even I feel out of place sometimes

    For one, I don't hate Merc. I appreciate him a lot. These are some interesting threads! We mess around with him because, hey, it was a topic about Chris Pratt and Twitter, after all. Not exactly the same level of political discussion as, say, separating immigrant children from their families or trying to keep minorities from voting. If you very seriously care about celebrity tweets then you need to rethink your priorities.

    Now as for 'creating Trump supporters', I cry foul on that one. Trump supporters are not created by EoFF The Lounge threads. Pretty sure that if you come here to gripe about people being called out for having silly conservative views, you've already made your choice. Trump supporters were indeed created by the echo chambers, but not the ones you think. A massive conservative propaganda machine and broken education system are responsible for this wonderful country we live in now.

    Del, I think we both know that 90% of the 74 million Trump voters are active EoFF forum-goers.

    Donald Trump himself used to post here, under the account Super Millionaire.

    Lol I'll blame the alcohol but the way the thread derailed I guess I felt like it was in Lifestream and not Lounge. But I'll definitely concede. You make a valid set of points and are likely more right than myself; and appreciate the follow-up humor. Love you guys

    I'll have you know I treat a thread basically called "White people attacked for being white: Part 37" with the level of seriousness and contemplation it deserves in a television and movie subforum.
