    Wanted: Seven posters willing to thumb up all my posts regardless of content.

    Not that I care about the thumbs ~ far from it, I just like to see fairness and balance and an end to lopsided thumbery which can be misleading ~ but the seven might get a kind of 'common cause' kick out of it.

    Secrecy guaranteed.
    I was going to join in but changed my mind.

    Dear all,

    we had a very good contest last year and I just reread the thread, enjoying it very much. Thread 185267

    So I would kick off the discussion for how we proceed for this year.

    it has been suggested t use a 1000 word limit. I am going with that suggestion. Last year some of the entries would have profited from more words.

    As a topic I would suggest that we try to to something up-lifting. Any suggestions?

    As always I think we can have three stories per participant.
    We will give four to six weeks to write
    We will take a week at least to vote in a first round.
    Should we agree on a second round voting like last year?

    Please take part in the discussion here.

    See binding set of rules will be decided in the next week or so.

    My wife came home recently and found me playing chess with our cat.
    'I didn't realise she was so intelligent' my wife said.
    'She isn't' I replied. 'I am winning three games to two.'

    That'd be a tough job.
    Morals guaranteed to be cast aside if necessary, thinking out the window, mindless clicking at all hours of the day.
    This sounds like a menial job, but a job nonetheless. I'd want to be paid.
    This feels like one of those Facebook or Youtube job offers- do nothing, don't think at all, get your friends to do the same and you'll be rich beyond your wildest dreams.

    Fascism is an originally Italian idea which aggressively encourages extreme nationalism in which the dominant ethnic group in the country take over the government and suppress minority cultures and peoples. Fascists generally support big business, the military and organized religion. They use phrases like “better to be a lion for a day than a sheep for eternity” and “make our country great again”. They back up their ideology with violence at all levels from government down to angry mobs.

    I remember a special place that burned off a great deal of my built-up energy as a child. It was a very nice place called "OUTDOORS". Just saying..... πŸ™‚

    ..and you can't impeach him after leaving office.

    It’s certainly debatable but I guess we’ll have to see what we will see. After four years of iconoclasm who knows?

    Thats the nice thing about parents with unruly kids. They have nobody to blame but themselves. lol .. love it. The lockdown in a God-send for teachers and the general public that had to face the results of your failure as a parent. Now you are stuck all alone with them. Deal with it. I hope also you learn something.
    Parents do not raise children. It is the parents who grow up by this process. Their kids grow up later.

    Thankyou for making it cool to be an American again.

    Thankyou for showing that we need not be under China's thumb

    Thankyou for one of the strongest economic that we've ever experienced. Thankyou for what you have done for minority communities, and for the un believeable increase in Unemployment....

    Thankyou for supporting our American Flag, the military which st ...[text shortened]... . I pray you run again in 2024, in what is left of our country. It will be even harder next time.
    Thank You for lying about Mexico paying for that border wall.

    Thank You for jumping into bed with playmates and pornstars, paying them hush money, then trying to pass yourself as an Evangelical Christian.

    Thank You for locking all those little children up in animal cages on our southern border, they were a clear and present danger to America.

    Thank You for encouraging your goon squads to storm our Capital, destroy government property, and kill people.

    Thank You for playing golf, while thousands of your fellow Americans perish everyday in this deadly pandemic, it's such a bother, is it not? Hope you shot a good score!

    Thank You for trashing our alliances, and making America no more trusted than Al-Qaida. Now we have far less support in furthering America's agenda abroad.

    Are we great yet?? πŸ˜•

    That is why I am as tough as I am today trev and have lived through many things you know nothing about. I not only had kids I adopted kids too all grown now I might add. It is hard not being able to see them in person at least there is a way to see and talk to them with where technology has went. Oh yes it was very cold, especially having a bowel movement and wiping your ...[text shortened]... use cashmere....LOL...! Perhaps it toughened me up too much so I am told at different times.

    See, there you go again talking down to people, if you think that’s tough you need a reality check. What I see is a sad little man who sits behind a computer screen spending the majority of his life on a chess forum picking fights with people. Now, we know you’re not a 90 year old who can’t move so the only reasonable explanation is that you’re a lazy sad little man with no life.

    Hopefully, when Trump is no longer POTUS, he can be indicted by the State of Georgia and Department of Justice for his attempts to interfere with an election. Plus the Justice Department could maybe charge him with inciting a riot that led to the death of five individuals, including a police officer. All of this, along with the indictments coming out of New York State, must be causing Trump distress. I hope when he is indicted, his passport is immediately confiscated. He might race off to Moscow. Perhaps Putin would grant him sanctuary in exchange for top secrets. I do worry that there will be violence at the inauguration. I wish it would be moved inside.
