Rather than just disappearing from this site, I thought I would at least wave goodbye. After all, even though we have our political differences, most of you are pretty decent people that I have come to know over the past few years.

Why am I leaving?

Frankly, I am growing tired of politics. I grow weary of the talking past one another, and the constant need to keep score.

I have other interests in my life that I have been neglecting. I want to stop and smell the roses, not dig through the septic tank to find the nastiness just so I have something to talk about. It isn’t a “Left” or “Right”, or an “us” or “them” thing. It’s that I have spent a lot of my time looking at the negatives. If you keep looking for negatives, you will always find them, regardless of what “side” you are on.

I need to pursue some positive aspects in my life right now. It’s just me.

Does this mean I will stay away forever? Probably not. It just means I plan on staying away for now — until such a time when I choose to come back.

I will still be available for the technical things here. If you have login problems or the site goes south, feel free to email me and I will fix you up as I’ve always have.

I might drop in from time-to-time in the Instant Bark to chat a bit, but as far as participation in the threads on this site, consider me on an extended vacation. A sabbatical, if you will.

I have some other reasons, but they are too personal to talk about right now. If and when the time ever comes for me to talk about them, I will. But I don’t see that happening any time soon.

I wanted to let you know because I felt it would be rude if I just walked away without so much as a reason for doing so. I will still be here in the background, just not out in the open any longer.

    DJ

    You, my friend, are always what I would call the loyal opposition.We disagree on politics…but your heart and soul are for the betterment of your nation.

    That has never been in doubt.

    Good luck.

    I have other interests in my life that I have been neglecting. I want to stop and smell the roses, not dig through the septic tank to find the nastiness just so I have something to talk about.

    A lesson we could all learn from.

    I understand and sympathize. The last year or so, I’ve been wondering how much politics has been contributing to my mental health (or lack thereof) and have cut back on reading and commenting on a lot of sites.

    So take all the time you need, and God speed.

    Dave, I will miss your presence and wisdom. Even when we disagree, you always make me learn something. That’s a good thing.

    Damn, Deej :sad_tb:

    I don’t need to say that I hate to see you go, even if it only is for a while, but I understand quite well the “battle fatigue” of politics. Sometimes you just have to step back and take a deep breath. Been there.

    So, ya scoundrel, have a nice rest and don’t make it last too long (yeah, that’s me: Always the selfish one :wink_ee: ). You know the door is always open, and whatever else it is that you need to deal with, I hope it isn’t too serious and, regardless of whether it is or not, that you get it dealt with fully and quickly.

    Take care, buddy, and don’t be a stranger, y’hear?

    DJ,

    I’ll miss your reasonable take on the other side of the argument…a lot of the more vocal types on the left could add a lot more punch to their arguments if they did it with the intelligence and style that you do….

    I hope all is well and wish you good times and good health. I still owe you a cup of coffee, just name the time sir.

    You’d be quite the career for a psycho-analyst:
    All the priorities of the liberals, BUT, you make points methodicaly, illuminated with sizeable smatterings of tangible,,stuff.
    What I’m sayin’ is, what you say seems mainly liberal, but the dialect (arguement structure) has a (gasp) Conservative alloy in it’s ring.

    People from Vancouver think it’s downright balmy, eh! It got up to around 70 degrees F today. You should come check it out.

    I was up in Marysville last weekend buying shoes…is that far enough north?

    Keeeep going! (I don’t chase white balls unless they’re baseballs. I’m scary enough without wearing plaid and whacking at the grass!) But they have a nice golf course in Bellingham, I guess. We’re north of Bellingham, in the “county”, so to speak.
