I don't think you should limit that plastic surgery to your face.

Political comments when referenced in a thread or post are not a problem.

Many RVing issues are the result of political action.

The problem arises when a political rant is posted or derogatory comments are made about one party or a particular politician or the thread wanders off topic discussing unrelated political issues.

It's been our experience over the years, once a post has strong political comments, more strong replies follow and the thread soon deteriorates.

This has been one of the most civilized discussions to date on the silly notion of 'man made' global warming I have ever participated in; politics come in because the subject is purely political.

hondo, thankfully I was never a union person-no independent thinker can be.

Obviously you've had the mirrors removed from your RV!

Hey, I have a backup camera. No mirrors allowed. Are you still working or have you retired? I really enjoyed prior conversations on the oil crisis and it sure looks like we were right. I am planning a 3 month trip this summer and I figured the fuel prices would go up. We were really disappointed to have the administration pull the rug out from us on offshore drilling the other day. We have 12% unemployment and the jobs would have really been a boon to our state. Russia and China are already drilling now between Cuba and Florida. With slant drilling, they can take our oil and their drilling isn't a safe as ours.

Sorry to hear that, an open minded, independent thinker can certainly be a Union member.

Retired, had to for health reasons. The problem with most of the solutions to the energy crisis is everyone doesn't want the solution in "their" backyard. Drilling, solar farms, wind farms, refineries and nuclear power plants tend to get folks drawers in a bunch when they are close to home. People listen to the rabble rousers with out knowing who funds them. In Philly there was a big to do over casinos. Everyone was up in arms, who was funding the effort Atlantic City casinos, making big contributions to the local officials who opposed it. You have to read between the lines.

Sorry to hear of your health problems. Are you still able to work. I had prostate cancer and had radioactive seeds put in my prostate. It didn't affect our summer camping, but messed up our winter camping.

But usually only as long as they keep their "thoughts" to themselves...

I was known as a trouble maker never could keep my mouth closed. I was on the opposition slate during the union elections. Served as the recording secretary of my local for 12 years I was my own man and was in the Carpenters Union for 45 years. Now I wouldn't say I didn't make some enemies in the hierarchy. But when you speak up and people listen to you they tend to try not to piss you off.
