Yes, yes it did. What's sad is that draft-dodging douche had the audacity to dishonor this man multiple times. He's a waste of air and space.

In recent months I have lost friends over politics. I would prefer that we keep our topics free of heated arguments and sloganeering. Even as I might strongly agree with you.

This is a hot topic area, Ludwig.  That is for politics and religion etc

I can hide it from you if you prefer not to see it

My computer acted up and I did not finish what I wanted to say.

I do not object to politics or other hot topics. Throughout the ages, art has been at the forefront of political discourse. Think of the powerful paintings, photographs, sculptures that brought realities and ideas to people. Music and song have been essential in campaigns.

Sadly, there are the invectives, the slurs, the accusations, that stem from lack of conviction or reality. Some of the hateful and mean words and images have degraded our ability or incentive to listen to the arguments and needs of others.  

State your position, make an eloquent case in words, images, or song. Protest my actions if you find them not to your liking. But, please, don't call me bad names, don't attempt to proclaim that you know better what I think than I do, don't distort the facts. Don't foster hate. That's all I'm asking. I do want to hear your thoughts.

I absolutely agree.  One of the reasons we have a paid system here now is to make sure people really wish to join in properly
