He did go over to Jess's (Injest) site when she first started it a few years back.

Is that site still going?.....If it is can someone give me the address for it...
Being happy doesn't mean everything is perfect.

It means you've decided to see beyond the imperfection

Artiste left here and went over to The Retreat (started by injest) during the conservative exodus from Bettermost during and after the 2008 elections.

There was an "exodus" ???  I noticed Artiste's and Jess's absence at some point in the last couple years, but I didn't notice a bunch of people leaving, or catch that it was related to the election in any way?

Yeah, Brokeplex, HerrKaiser, and their buddies didn't like the taste of our whiskey, so they headed out for other pastures along about then.

Oh.  Guess I must have been celebrating with too much of our whiskey at the time, cause it sure flew right past me.   ;D

I think only part of it was related to the election specifically. As happens in many presidential election years, people on both sides dig their heels in, and the differences in the ideologies on both left and right become more sharply drawn. But even after the election, there were a number of news items that sparked fierce debates here between liberals and conservatives on social rather than political grounds.

Good God I just took a look over at the Retreat site. They should change the name to "The Old South Tea Party"
