Best to keep your God out of this site too. By loving America is that all of north, central and south or do you mean The United States. I love the United States, but not when I have to think too much about all the political etc. garbage that shows how broken our country is. Politics and religion have no place here. Almost anything but politics and religion. It is disrespectful of others who think differently and frankly it makes me have a low opinion of anyone who brings it here
All arguing on these sites are like commercials on TV, I forget what the actual topic (show) was that I was reading about (watching).

I 100% respect your opinion Greg. Give me the same courtesy.
Ki d Regards,

As long as you don't bring your politics and religion, I won't bring my religion and politics. I do my best to keep mine out, but when others don't it opens the door to a response which I do my best to stay neutral. I care more about this site being cohesive for everyone. Isn't this site being successful for all more important that poisoning it with our biases. Anyone coming on this site and referring to half of our members being similar to an idiot is just wrong and frankly somewhat ironic. Definitely disrespectful. You wouldn't even be reading anything I'm writing about this topic if it wasn't started by someone else.

Yes, if your thin skinned
It's a matter being respectful and keeping this site free from religion and politics. I don't think anyone is crying over it. I personally expect better from our fellow Mustangers.

Just to clarify, NOTHING in my original comment was political, it is based on science and fact; million do come to our great country constantly AS DID MY MOTHER AND FATHER. As to "My Religion"...If one stating "God Bless America" offends you...OK with me-be offended.

I suspect the first person who went off about "no politics" did so when I had laid out some of my views. I would like to say "tuff rocks" to the persons who were offended. But, because my saying that may cause more feathers to fly I choose to not say it. That said, I will measure comments I say more carefully and appropriately within the context of the forum's purpose. I hope nobody takes that as an apology, it isn't. I just prefer to not get anybody all torqued out needlessly.

Anyway... John, I am happy you guys are all settled in, enjoy your new home and those good roads and that cheap gas and cruise that 'vert until the tires need to be replaced! That is a beautiful area you moved to, I have been down in the Charlotte area from time to time for business and it is really nice this time of year.

Amazes the shit out of me the things people will say hiding behind a keyboard that they would never have the balls to say to your face.
Too funny! Dude says this, then has the audacity to make three posts insulting the other guy, talk about the kettle calling the pot black. Not one personal attack was made by Mrgmhale, not one. Typical though , it’s OK for you to say anything, but we as a conservatives cannot say a thing without upsetting you. That is what is actually causing the divide dude, you and your inability to listen to the other side without resulting in insulting and name-calling. The hypocrisy on your side is so thick it’s ridiculous and it’s what’s actually causing the divide. Rules for thee, but not for me. Get real and don’t be hypocritical and then people could get back together to being Americans again, instead of left versus right. We are all Americans first !!

As a Canadian, albeit an imported one. we need to remember that people from all around the world are members here or even just visit to see if this Forum is a place where they want to belong. They are reading the same as I'm reading, with distaste.
This thread was and is about JohnJ moving to S Carolina. It is not about anything else, period.

Actually, I disagree, why do you want to stifle free speech? This is the new mantra of the left, you can’t say anything that we don’t agree with, or you’ll hurt our feelings, Most of us who are leaving the blue states, or Canada for that matter, are fleeing exactly the things that Mrgmgale referred to. Ironically, and unfortunately, some of those leaving are also leaving for the same reasons, high taxes, over bearing regulation, etc., yet want to bring those same problems to the red states we’re running to. Can’t you just stay where you are and be miserable, there? (or happy, your choice) You people made it that way, so revel in it, and leave us alone. He was not being a crybaby, he was stating facts as he sees them. If those things don’t bother you, then stay in your blue state. Or in your case stay in Canada. But for those of us who have deep ties in a red state, that used to be purple or blue when we made those strong ties, it is very difficult for us to leave, no matter how much we may want to. In my case I have a very successful business that I worked very hard at for 50 years, +6 beautiful grandchildren. I already own a beautiful waterfront lot for the last 18 years in Port Charlotte Florida which we would love to build on, (well it was beautiful before Ian, we’ll see what comes now ), but don’t want to leave our families, and I don’t have a succession plan for my business yet, but I’m working on it. I think it’s completely wrong to state that we can’t talk about our reasons for leaving, just because it’s for ideological reasons instead of say, weather or health related. It doesn’t make it wrong or right , it just means he would love to leave New York for his own reasons. It might be hard for you to understand because you’re happy with those regulations and other restrictions being put on you on a daily basis, but for those of us who don’t want that life, we’re not being crybabies, we’re just want to go where we feel comfortable and can be happy. We don’t fault you for staying where you’re happy, (please by all means stay there), so don’t fault us for wanting to move to get away from what makes you happy. For those same reasons that he mentioned I would love to leave Connecticut, but right now it’s just not in the cards. But it will happen, And then my wife and I can be happy as well. After all, isn’t that what we all want, to be happy?
