I think April Fools Day should be a religious holiday where we all pause, thank our creator of choice (or not, if we are creatorless) and stop killing each other for one day each year. Part of the celebration would include spending the day with a group of people that for whatever reason we look down on or despise or hate or have no consideration for or… The next day we resume our normal evil, deceitful, uncaring lives that we so cherish. Truly then we can say we have celebrated being fools.

spot on my friend only we should abolish wars forever leaving our troops purely as a defensive force in case of likely attack. or imminent. or actual attack .
And stop meddling and interfering with other countries problems there we truly become fools in wars we cannot afford and rely on borrowing money to execute.Alistair

I agree with both. But how? Even this little spot called LJ cannot keep peace. Here I also might be at fault.

I’m guessing we don’t do good at getting along because the majority of the membership are just like their parents and their parents before them…religious, conservative, republican who do not like change and only a few of us are of the enlightened.

Sounds like Christmas…

Scotsman, one sure fire way to end war is to have a worldwide law that states the person or group of persons that declare war on another country must always be in the vanguard of the attack. No leader(s) leading, no war. The military would be free to not fight if not led…

I’m thinking comments like that is why YOU might not get along too well with others DKV. Not me, as I haven’t even commented on anything of yours before I don’t believe, but I noticed you like to polarize the membership and label them as belonging to certain groups. Practice what you are preaching please and maybe everyone really can get along.

Oops. By your thinking I should have waited until April 1st to talk to you. Hahaha.

seems to me, groups polarize each other, due to the fact they all too often talk about the things they know little about so if the big dreamy world of make believe was beside me, what it would it think?

If “it” was alive today, and the event called Easter, April Fools, or Christmas, and every religious and political view was enacted, we would be faced towards a long history of wars lost

pick your poison ?

A holiday is nice where ever you are

“Sounds like Christmas”

Now that was funny, but kind of a harsh truth too.

Did you know that Easter is not a national holiday.

?

it is, if you work for the government and get a big fat indexed pension based on the ability of the public to pay the taxes, so that pork bellies can remain fat and celebrate where crucifixes cant be hung ?
