It was coming, a slow transition from one state of living to a different state of living.
That new state of living is now "As Maine Goes- The Living Dead".
Personally, I recognized this recently when I was confronted with agreeing with a Smegma
post and awarded him a "Drum Roll and Rimshot". He has been correct more than others like to admit ,
hidden by the crassness etc. making it easier to ignore him ,which isn't done as suggested many times,
it doesn't work.
During the change from AMG I and the love of the past which wasn't totally as good as remembered we started the slide.
Initially this started with love for the new owner, place holder, or what ever, he ,she ,they are. Roger seems to have the inside track
on that one. Which did bring about a greater freedom to criticize management than in past. But that was not used by many I suspect.
Oh he did expel a couple of posters which seemed to drive many away. Yet in the past when others were ousted it was gleefully
accepted. CC came back with the same effect but to much love. By the way are they missed?
Along with the change was the total loss of any ability to laugh by many, at ourselves or others. Much less say we disagree or agree on a post.
There is the drive buy posters who occasionally appear . Some to take shots at AMG in general instead of offering other ideas etc..
There is others who appear to take shots at members who in their opinion post too much, but that seems to have passed. They also do not offer much to counter what they disagree with.
Politically we are now obsessed with all going ons in DC and living the evils of the past 8 years. Yes , we are Trump supporters,
as with the All Lepage All the time , thing we are yet to accept any questions about opinions on right wrong ,good or bad so far.
Yet as the trolling continues by newer members to nothing of much significance it will assist in the transition but done politely.
Locally we have lost all hope, after all ,all our children have been indoctrinated and are doomed. If the MIC doesn't get them a hoard of illegal immigrants will.
Our news media is all bad and doesn't report but things that are sad but not here.
At least our constitutional rights are in place except for all those errors the founding fathers made years ago. Maybe they were deprived of kcals .
Obviously because of what the politicians did along with the lawyers.
Well we are now the living dead IMO,chracterized by name calling ,by one who couldn't even do better than "douche" ! lame at best.
But isn't that is a characteristic of the LD isn't ? Even a good Zumba scandal couldn't save us.
