We all love hearing someone constantly telling us how "great they are, how super smart they are and constantly telling us how incredibly stupid everyone else is and that everyone lies but him. :woohoo:

We need "some" entertainment!"


When I go to a show to be entertained, one or two hours is enough. Years of media hype trumped up charges ( did you like what I did there?) and salacious gossip has me cringeing in the corner and eating boxes of After Eights and Quavers at the same time...a kind of insanity previals. :silly: :silly:
Well after all, different strokes for different folks yes?.....

By the way, it is a well known fact that most people in power have psychopathic tendencies, we must love the poor dears...

I'm guessing Trump is no better than the rest of people in power then ? I guess it's a question of whose psychopathic tendencies are the least destructive ... We elect hoping politicians are telling the truth ... then we find out !!!

easy solution for those who are bored by Trump threads - skip past, dont open them. smile.png

There are threads on Buzz that I do that - games threads, music threads.

Just not my thing.

But I dont start threads saying there are too many or we should ban them :S

No complaints of too many and no mention of banning threads.
Simply a rather bemused observation.

I will concede that on occasion the does appear to be a lot of overlap in the contents of threads which leads to over proliferation, it would seem sensible, rules allowing, for there to be more latitude in specific established threads or perhaps a single omnibus thread for discussing all things Trump that don't have other individually interesting content.

The thread " Another Trump Thread" had this omnibus character but rather than use it for small Trump tidbits new threads are being crated. For example where does one mention that Trump has moved on from just being a stable genius, to now adding he's a good looking , stable genius. :woohoo: :P :laugh: :laugh:

Can't you just feel the hate oozing from those threads? Not exactly the atmosphere of a "friendly" site.

As long as there is no hatred toward fellow Buzzers from either side, how is that a problem??

People don't have to sugar coat their opinion of public figures - plenty of negative views toward Teresa May, for example - but people don't take that personally.

A friendly site can still have serious discussion and people can give their honest opinions.
