Conservative or not??

Ok gentlemen.  Here is my problem.  Why do we seem to support a non conservative, like Romney, when we have a good proven conservative like Newt or John Huntsman?  Are we so scared of the left that…Continue

It is time to shed the “I’m a Conservative-Republican or Conservative-Democrat” label because it just positions the conservative within a sub-group of the party. A conservative hyphenated Republican…Continue

Kenneth, I understand totally the pressures of your job! i am a Parole Agent in Illinois, on the Sex Offender Unit. Hang in there, I am putting you on my prayer list, as I am taking care of two elderly parents myself, and we just lost my mother in law three weeks ago.

Please pardon the few typos. The old carpet tunnel syndrome has been flaring up as of late. I feel sure other conservatives will understand my meaning anyway without the need for lengthy explanations.

Thanks so much guys. I really appreciate your words of support.

Ironically, the guy that branded me a "racist" right off the bat largely seems to present himself as some kind of over-the-hill, crunchy granola, "tolerance" for all hippie. What irks me about the blind stupidity of the PC crowd is that the vocally preach tolerance, but will not under ANY circumstances extend that same tolerance to anyone who disagrees with their viewpoints / opinions, however tactfully. I mean, why be concerned about being "politically correct" when you can be right? I also don't know how a p[erson can claim to be a Christian, and yet adopt the guiding "philosophy" of "political correctness" since they are, in fundamental terms, completely opposed to one another. I don't think you can be both, since one dictates embracing all things secular, and antithetical to truth.

J.D., I totally understand about not wanting to spend too much time here in the virtual world. I'm a probation officer, so my work life takes up an inordinate amount of my time. I am also really focused on looking after my mother these days since Dad died several months ago. She's the only immediate family that I have left.

J.D. and Kevin, again, thanks for confirming I'm not totally alone on this site, and that there are still some guys out there who have functioning gray matter, and know how to think critically / independently. I truly appreciate your support. You guys have a great day.

Kenneth:  I am not a member of the Christian Men group here on the site, but I know and share  your frustrations with the antics of some of the members of this site in certain discussion threads.  While I am no saint and have made a number of comments I wish I could take back, I still have serious doubts as to how far my involvement with this site should be in the future.  To some degree, my 10-month-old daughter and the demands she places on me have greatly limited the time I have to spend in front of the computer.  But I still hold out hope that I will find something of value here on the site, even if it is only in the blog posts.  My point with all this is to say not to give up on this site too quickly.  This particular group is not very active, largely because nearly all the p olitical discussions take place in The Grea t Debate group, which I rarely part icipa te in.  Do your best to articulate your position and don't let people like Steve Dallas shout  you down.  He's widely regarded here as a jerk and a extremist bully.  Hope this helps.

Hello Kenneth, while we may be out shouted by PC nazis, we are still here! Hang in there and speak up proudly.

Comment by Kenneth on March 13, 2015 at 11:12am

Is this group still active, or has the party been moved elsewhere?

I took it for granted that I might reasonably be able to express some of my conservative viewpoints in the discussion group for "Christian" men, but unfortunately, it seem the PC Police have operatives on patrol in there. I made no specific comment about an ethnic group, but was immediately branded a "racist" by some left-wing reactionary up in the frozen north. I never thought I'd encounter that kind of knee-jerk reaction, or the cliquey vibe of a bunch of high school girls.

I want to give AoM a fair chance, but I'm not overly thrilled with what I've found thus far. If you're at all conservative, to my estimation, it seems like you're in the tiny minority.

Welcome Shane!

I'm a 23 year-old conservative, looking forward to learning from you all.

Where does morality fit into this? I don't recall me, Fluke, nor Limbaugh mentioning it.

Comment by OHK on March 6, 2012 at 6:52pm

Gentlemen, unlike ladies, are not only allowed, but expected to lose their gentle habits on occasion.


If you believe calling a woman a slut and prostitute on national radio is acceptable and expected venting that could still be called gentlemanly, then we have very different definitions of what it means to be a gentleman, and IMO your definition is laughable and meaningless, and not in anyway based on accepted respected manners.


The idea of a young woman going up before Congress saying that young women in college need the contraception for free, because it can be quite costly..., is ungodly.

Why?

Has AOM jumped the shark or is it's just cyclical

There is nothing political or religious about this topic but let's face it, unless I'm discussing going shirtless or masterbating, there isn't too many active groups at the moment. I thought it would be a rude headline for the front page though. So here it is, on Herb's biblical paradigm/TGD. At least I think it is. You can't comment on the group's main page anymore and the feed doesn't show on the community main page either anymore (or does it again now?) so who knows, maybe no one can read…See More
