Hi Guys!

Post by GodhandRomo on Wed Nov 12, 2014 11:36 pm

Hi guys, let me introduce myself to this forum

First and foremost, I'd like to introduce myself as a sports fan. I have browsed your forums, and would like to engage in conversation with you about sports and sports culture. Even though you have the banner that says you are dedicated to the eradication of sports, something tells me that you aren't truly for that. I really, really hope none of you are dedicated to eradicating something that brings joy to a lot of people. I guess we can get a bit more into that. I just hope I don't overstep my boundaries, as I see you have moderators that ban people with dissenting opinions.

I also see that politics is a huge part of this forum. In case many of you are wondering, I consider myself a moderate Republican. On most social issues do actually tend to lean a little left, but I'm definitely firmly Conservative when it comes to economic issues. If you wish to engage with me on this, I'm always open for a debate.

If you have any other questions for me or want to get to know me better, feel free to shoot me over a message. I would love to hear from you all Smile

My deepest apologies, GodhandRomo!  I just now noticed this OP of yours.  I hadn't noticed it before.  I should add that my reply to your other post was based on complete ignorance of your own position.  In other words, I hadn't read your OP above.

I appreciate your civility.   Cool

The logo to which you refer has been borrowed from another website ( www.sportssuck.org ) that once had a forum.  A forum that no longer exists because the creator and site admin went crazy and deleted the entire forum, banning me and Skul as well.  (For background info, please read http://ihatesports.forumotion.com/t139-prequel-to-the-ray-saga-how-it-all-began )

We are not "dedicated to the eradication of sports" if only because there is absolutely no way that could ever happen.  It's an impossibility.  You might as well wish that all zoos and museums would disappear.  Speaking for myself, the thought never crossed my mind before I discovered the website mentioned above.  Sports will always be around.

Skul is the admin, and I'm the only moderator.  As long as the Forum Rules are observed, dissenting views are tolerated.

Although all the political OPs do not support the Republican Party, this forum does not have an ideological inclination.  Incidentally, Ray Parker (the creator of the website mentioned above) is a Tea Party Republican.  Whether one is a sports fan or not has absolutely nothing to do with politics.

I'm not a bigot when it comes to relating to others whose political views may differ from mine.  When Mrs. Earl and I got married decades ago, I was a liberal Democrat; and she was a moderate Republican.  (We're now dissatisfied with both parties.)  I used to joke that we had a "mixed marriage."

I'll have more to say later.  Keep posting.   Smile

Thank you Earl, I appreciate your kindness. It's nice to know that you guys aren't truly dedicated to eradicating sports. Or at least you aren't, I'm still not sure about other members on this board.

I'll take look at this Ray thing some time, it sounds interesting.

Anyways, it was nice getting to know you, and I shall have fun communicating with you guys

Well . . . I for one, thinks that sports should be eradicated, especially from our schools.

And, I think that all football players should be ground up and made into lunch meat to feed the homeless!

Anyway . . . . .

Surely you are joking? You aren't advocating the murder of millions of people? Also, forcing homeless people to eat human meat is disrespectful to them. As a self proclaimed Democrat, I'd expect a little more compassion from you

OK???

But, I do think football players should be kept in cages when the games are over!

Hello, GodhandRomo! You made the comment that you saw there was some political discussion in this forum, and so you told us your political leanings. Judging by your last post in the “Is this forum dead?” thread, you probably already realize this; but I still feel compelled to warn you: Most of the “political discussions” in this forum consist of rants by Big Fat Heretic which can be summed up in the paraphrase “Republicans are the source of all evil” followed by a series of insults which might be considered clever by small boys. So, don’t hold your breath expecting reasoned political discourse.

And by the way, welcome to the forum.

Well, I'm now in the process of responding to GodhandRomo in another topic, and this moronic retard has already started off by slamming Obama.

So, I can't post a polite response!

I'm pulling out all the stops!!!  

So, hang onto your hats!!!

Hi Mrs. Earl. I apologize for the confusion. What I posted was my failed attempt at satire. I tried to be equally as unreasonable as YouKnowWho. While I'm still definitely pleased that the Republicans have taken control, I don't blame Obama for all our problem. (Only some of them :p)

There's no need for an apology. I knew it was a parody, and so did Mrs. Earl.

My deepest apologies for not responding sooner.  I got depressed.  It had something to do with the exchanges the four of us had earlier this week.  Internet posting seems to bring out a lot of hostility.  I've even lost my temper before several times (in a few other forums).  Hardly anything is accomplished as a result.

Hold on.  I need to go run an errand for Mrs. Earl and I.  I'll post again today, but later.

Hey! If you wish to do satire and parody, may I suggest you watch some Saturday Night Live, then go to a website called The Onion, and read MAD Magazine.

Satire and parody is suppose to be funny, and not cruel and sadistic like your so-called satire.

Sorry, but attacking poor people and handicapped people is NOT funny. You only think it's funny because you're a Republican!

Yeah! You would probably laugh your little ass off if you saw an elderly lady in a wheelchair tumbling down seven flights of stairs, and like a typical Republican, you probably even think rape is funny!

Oh! But I forget! JESUS still smiles down on you anyway! Right?

That mother-fucker hates my guts!

But I don't give a flying fuck!

Don't dish shit out you can't receive. I used the same type of rhetoric you used.

I am still awaiting your rebuttal on the other thread though. Or are you too stupid to actually come up with a rational response? Yeah! That's gotta be it. You're too much of a Dumbacrap to even use your brain!!!

Well, what I say is NOT satire or parody. What I say is FACT!

I get my information from the NSF National Science Foundation, and Union of Concerned Scientists when it comes to environment and climate issues such as pollution and global warming, which is a FACT!!!

When it comes to political, educational, and social issues, I get my information from TFN Texas Freedom Network, AU Americans United for Separation of Church and State, and PFAW People For the American Way, and Secular Coalition.

I don't watch FOX NEWS, unlike you right-wing retards! That's all a pack of lies and dis-information anyway!

The more you watch FOX NEWS the dumber you'll get!!!

Now, I will work on my rebuttal in response to your other topic later on this evening.

I've been very busy yesterday and today.

I had company over. I do have friends who drop by to visit this 63 year old coot, unlike you . . . with your invisible friend, JEEEEEZZZZZAAAAASSSSS!!!

Yes, I have real live friends dropping by that I can actually see and hear, unlike you . . . with your invisible friend who's imaginary ethereal voice you believe to hear echoing inside your empty skull.

How pathetic!!!

Now, I'll get back to you later on this evening.

In the meantime, I'm gonna have a cigar, some dark roast coffee, and maybe another cigar.

Then, I'll get back to you!

So, you just hang on to your piss-soaked pantaloons until then.

You have yet to use any logic at all. I find it highly unlikely that you even can read high level scientific journals.

It is my understanding that you read little picture books. That's cute! Maybe one day you'll grow up and read real literature though!

Anyways, I eagerly await your rebuttal

GodhandRomo hasn't stated what his religious views are.  True, his username contains the word "God"; but that doesn't necessarily prove anything.  You're making an assumption on the fact that the religious right is part of the Republican coalition.  The religious right has been said to include Catholics, yet they don't believe the Genesis account of creation.  Besides, there are more than a few right-wingers whose political inclinations have nothing to do with religion.  Stereotypes sometimes don't serve as good arguments.

In the second to the last sentence, I wrote "politics." I meant "religion." Wink

Thanks Earl. The truth is, is that even though I'm a Republican, I shun away from religious fanatics. I'm not religious at all, haven't stepped inside a church for over 10 years (outside funeral services). Even though I'm not religious, these edgy atheists, such as Big Fat Heretic, cause more damage than the religious fundamentalists.

And Big Fat Heretic, suuuuure you had friends over. If you have friends, then I am a 6'4", 220 lbs of all muscle, have a six pack and great pecs, have a sexy face, have a 10/10 Victoria's Secret supermodel girlfriend, I graduated top of my class in Harvard, I make 500k a year with the business that I own, and I have a mansion (forget the price), and I have a Maserati that does 185.

Lying on the internet is fun, isn't it?

Okay.   Smile

Well, I don't know if I'd consider myself to be the leader of this forum.  To begin with, it's currently very few in number.  Just you, BFH, Skul, me, and Brigan.  I'm just the sole moderator.

I'm a 64-year-old guy, but I look 10-plus years younger.  Been happily married for over 30 years to the same woman.  Proud father of two daughters (both married now).  Both of them are better human beings than I was at their ages.

As I was growing up, I never had any desire to participate in any sport as a player or a spectator.  (More about that later, perhaps.)  At the age of 57, I joined a local health club and started pumping iron.  I'm still working out and have spent a small fortune on personal trainers.  I have proven in my own life what a fraud mandatory P.E. was (not to mention their big lie that they were concerned about the physical health of nonathletic students).  Despite my complete lack of interest in sports when I was a kid, I still suffered from very low body self-image.

I'm a big fan of the original Twilight Zone and Outer Limits series (first season mostly) although I like the revival series as well.  Cool  Mystery Science Theater 3000 is a hoot!  Laughing  It's been an Earl family favorite.

(Incidentally, I got my username name from a former NFL player of all people:  Earl Campbell!  I'm surprised such an admission hasn't gotten me banned!   Laughing )

My political leanings?  I'd consider myself to be an early 1960s liberal, but that time has passed and politics have changed.  I'm pro-life (but not to the point of being an extremist about it) and consider same-sex marriage to be a form of social insanity.  I grew up under Jim Crow and had at least a partial glimpse of just how evil it was.  I have noticed which political faction supported the civil rights movement during the 1950s and the 1960s and which political movement supported Jim Crow, and my political views have been strongly influenced as a result.  I'm quite upset that the Texas State Board of Education has chosen to whitewash the history of Jim Crow in school textbooks.  I'm not the least bit surprised, though.  Of course, I realize the black community (or perhaps more appropriately "communities") are faced with very serious problems that are not the direct result of white racism.  Generally, in despair I've given up on the possibility that much good can come out of politics.

I should have said this before:  I don't look freakish, but I often don't fit in.  (As a boy I paid the price for not having an interest in sports, but so be it.)  That's because I've always been independently minded.  For example, as a 7th grader way back in the spring of 1964, I let it be known that I supported a woman for President:  Senator Margaret Chase Smith, who was running in the Republican presidential primaries.  Man, did I get hooted at by the boys in my civics class!  I'm very much a Bible believer; but I have no use for the religious right, many of whom I consider to be hypocrites.  After all, the original religious right was the Ku Klux Klan.

You seem like a very intelligent guy, Earl. Young bucks like me and Brigan can learn a lot from the words you speak. We need more people like you in the world - level headed people with extensive life experiences.

Thank you for sharing a little bit about yourself
