To be honest, the level of conversation has been on a downward trajectory since I first started posted back in 2013, and looked like it had been falling for a while.

Yeah, it really is the same 4 or 5 old men droning on about the same things that make up, I dunno, at least half of the posting volume around here.

I check in periodically.  However, I find that I often have more productive things to do than to argue with Regressive Leftists and clueless  Boomers on the internet.  I won't even argue politics with my Boomer mother--though mostly it is like she's living on a completely different planet than myself, my boyfriend or my sister.

All three of us ended up voting for Daddy.  Mother was with the sick, corrupt hag.

We don't really see many like that around here. That's more of a South Beach thing, and to an extent, some of the NE places.

Our older rich (or wanna be, rich appearing) gays are more into the aging bohemian thing, or, in the more urbane direction, the elder "professor" or lawyer look.

You find this surprising? How many forums last nearly as long as this one? Eventually, the discussion has to get stale. Trump is about the only new thing to discuss in years.

I doubt there will be a real climatic finish to this 4T, so be on the lookout for serious trashing by the new-Prophets. I think Mikebert summarized it well: nothing up to this point that will last, and nothing on the horizon.

The "degradation of the conversation" is because your side dismisses actual reality as "fake news". You guys live in a la-la land of bullshit and don't realize the backlash you've unleashed. Trump is "making America great again", alright, just not in the way you goose-stepping idiots are expecting.

LOL! Big Grin   I just logged into my 23andme account and the Arab thingie's still there.  So... what do you suggest for a Arab/Swedish hybrid?
So what do you suggest?   Did you have your DNA looked at? The Arab/Swedish DNA really does match the Red/Black aura that Eric The Green pegged me as such?


Perhaps you're just plain Norwegian? Have a shot, OK? You know, us Arabs have a certain temperament.  I mean, really, I have no problem with claiming an Arab
ancestry.  So, to the  point, Odin, yes I do in fact respect you, with the handle, "Odin", do you as well have Arab ancestry?  Let it be known, Rags takes pride in said ancestry. *calm the fuck down.

1.  Everyone you don't like being Hitler/Russian Spy/etc is not reality Odin.  It is fake news.

2.  I didn't say that they were Alt-Righters.  And generally those who do don't understand what the Alt-Right is.  The Alt-Right typically are white identitarian in nature.  The Gen Z conservatism has not indicated a clear trend toward identitarianism, yet.

23andMe? Not yet. I have traced my genealogy, and as a general rule anyone who can trace ancestors back to early English  settlers in New England (Puritans) is descended from nobility. That nobility includes French, Spanish, Portuguese, Hungarian, Italian, Polish, Greek (Byzantine), Russian, Serb, Bulgarian,  and Czech ancestors in a sort of interlocking directorate. Track the Spanish and you find Basques, Arabs, and Goths. Track the Byzantines and you find Armenians and Georgians. Track the English aristocracy far enough back and you find the Norse, including the Scandinavian-descended Normans. Track the Hungarians and you find Pechenegs (a/k/a Patzinaks and Polovtsy). About all that I can find out about the these people is that the composer Alexander Borodin ascribed to them some wonderful music in his opera Prince Igor.  The Rus who gave their name to Russia were Scandinavians.

Portuguese kings were really French.






I am surprised to find no Persians, Romanians, or Lithuanians. I did find that I am very distantly related to Count Dracula, not that I want that connection. Any connection that I have to Austria is thin (surprising in view of my musical tastes).

Uh, I seem to be more of a humble heritage.  The British lineage is just the Southern Scottish/Welsh sort. Also, the Wilson/Johnson lineage with the -son part is Viking on both sides. That would be the Mc- Scottish stuff. The Viking lineage is pretty recent, like 2nd generational on both sides. So , basically, as far as Europe, I'm a tacky warrior/(Mcrae)/Viking(all else). Big Grin The Brown , Welsh, are were coal miners. So... I have no nobility, but rather [Mcrae, warriors] for clan McDonald, Viking? Need I say more? Welsh, the coal miners. As for Cherokee/Arab, those are just extras , as per 23andme.  I do, agree, that the Rus, Viking lineage is for Russia. That's the path to the Mideast. It is for that reason, I have Arab lineage. I can even locate, the pick of Swedes (Svear) traded with folks in Baghdad. The X chromosome is purely Swedish.

The sons and the Mcs and the Welsh/Scottish in your ancestry would be Celtic rather than British, most likely; although things get mixed. 

The vast Montgomery line of which I partake descends from a norse noble warrior named Gomer who built a fort on a mountain in Normandy; whose sons and grandsons then invaded England along with William and split into 3 branches, one of which moved to Ireland, where I too am descended from a McDonald clan, one of whom married my Gr Gr Gr grandfather, a full "Monty" of some kind, and came to America.

I found him to be intelligent. I didn't always agree with him but he was at least intelligent. But I find it difficult to miss someone I know only from an internet forum. Much like I don't consider Facebook "friends" to actually be friends.

No. Changing horses as necessary. I am becoming much more conservative on foreign policy... and I warn conservatives that they had better find something worthy of preserving.

Really? So you've dropped your A Fascist Under Every Bed and Woe is me I'm Uber-depressed shtick? From where I sit I don't bloody think so. Eric is of course convinced that his astrological whatnots explain everything and well most of the left has stayed on the left, the right on the right.

Becoming more conservative in what way? In that you don't want an aggressive withdrawal from empire building?

I disagree. Boomers are pehaps the worst generation ever spawned. But I'm biased and admit that I am.

The people who seem to complain most about oppression as a group are under-educated white people of the Mountain and Deep South. They seem to have found the wrong solution in you-know-who.

Actually those who complain the most about systemic racism and sexism are in fact university educated white petty-bourgeois liberals. The Mountain and Southern Underclass whites just want a job. You'd know that had you ever been to either area and talked with said people. Of course that would require you to do two things you'd find very difficult PBR.

About all that I can find out about the these people is that the composer Alexander Borodin ascribed to them some wonderful music in his opera Prince Igor.  The Rus who gave their name to Russia were Scandinavians.

Portuguese kings were really French.






I am surprised to find no Persians, Romanians, or Lithuanians. I did find that I am very distantly related to Count Dracula, not that I want that connection. Any connection that I have to Austria is thin (surprising in view of my musical tastes).

Uh, I seem to be more of a humble heritage.  The British lineage is just the Southern Scottish/Welsh sort. Also, the Wilson/Johnson lineage with the -son part is Viking on both sides. That would be the Mc- Scottish stuff. The Viking lineage is pretty recent, like 2nd generational on both sides. So , basically, as far as Europe, I'm a tacky warrior/(Mcrae)/Viking(all else). Big Grin The Brown , Welsh, are were coal miners. So... I have no nobility, but rather [Mcrae, warriors] for clan McDonald, Viking? Need I say more? Welsh, the coal miners. As for Cherokee/Arab, those are just extras , as per 23andme.  I do, agree, that the Rus, Viking lineage is for Russia. That's the path to the Mideast. It is for that reason, I have Arab lineage. I can even locate, the pick of Swedes (Svear) traded with folks in Baghdad. The X chromosome is purely Swedish.

The sons and the Mcs and the Welsh/Scottish in your ancestry would be Celtic rather than British, most likely; although things get mixed. 

The vast Montgomery line of which I partake descends from a norse noble warrior named Gomer who built a fort on a mountain in Normandy; whose sons and grandsons then invaded England along with William and split into 3 branches, one of which moved to Ireland, where I too am descended from a McDonald clan, one of whom married my Gr Gr Gr grandfather, a full "Monty" of some kind, and came to America.

If you want to know why the oppressive order of feudalism did not lead to mass uprisings -- populations were small, and the feudal lord was usually somehow related to the serf. People didn't get around much, so figure that about everyone on a manor was about a fourth cousin or so. Primogeniture ensured that there would not be too many lords.
