    You are so wrong. He is a nightmare whatever he is doing, 25 hours a day.

I haven't worked for the man in decades, but hopped around in 8 different shops before becoming self employed, in all those places there wasn't a single democrat in a management or owner position yet we have hoards of them here.
    they're called posers.

    Dualkit was looking at too small a sample. Of a bunch of shops I knew, several owners were apolitical, some were financial conservatives (not Republicans, truly conservative) but social libertarians, some were grumpy old coots, one or two were goofy youth, and one was an ex-Digger. One or two that washed money for the HA, one who produced LSD on the side, several who cared about nothing except racing, one who was infatuated with the fairer sex and died at forty-two of a heart attack, one was a fanatic about the Federal Reseve, a couple were freaks of nature who didn't make it all the way.

    A varied group, with Republicans in the minority.

    Just because it's a good read ...

    So, we have a thread about forgoing the personal attacks - and this is how it ends?

    Pete we know it will take effort to be more civil. The online aspect of this media can be very strong as it has so much positive to offer. Flip side is it is more negative in strong ways also To keep it working we must maintain it like we would our tools, or shop, our machines or our lives things we respect get our care and respect and not neglect.

    This site offers a deep resource for all members and prospective members.

    As has been documented there are rules and positive restraints we must follow. Since we Machinists have been hardened by our experiences and mentors we can accept that under the circumstances we are never wrong to just do the next right thing. We can ignore someone who constantly is in attack mode.

    They may make us mad and that is the case in the work environment. We are smart and determined enough to consider what we are see and what we do to let off the pressure.

    Try to do the next right thing. Add a thick skin and tone the sharpness down maybe refrain curse words. It is harder to show we are backing down off the peak of conflict. In person we likely would have and the other person likely would have long calmed down and got back to work.

    No need to take the bait. It just leads the thread to a train wreck right?

    Are you implying that Dr. King wasn’t all about social justice?
