The title is my LJ resolution for 2014. As many of you know I have posted a few religious/political threads. I declare that there will be no more, at least from me. 2014 for me on LJ’s is going to be about woodworking and nothing but woodworking. I could have made this a private resolution but in my mind those are the easiest to break. If a resolution is made public and broken then you have a whole different story. I’m not good at public humiliation, shuning, shaming, stoning, etc. If you think I have broken my resolution call me out. Any little bit of help is appreciated. May you all have a great 2014 and good woodworking to all of you.

I dunno … I only made one resolution this year and that was to not make any resolutions. Guess I already broke my resolution!

I think this is a wonderful New Years resolution. Let us focus on what brings us together not on what drives us apart.

Maybe this will help. (Getting up on my soap box)

It’s all about integrity. The decisions (posts you make) are what defines you.
When you bring up Religion and or Politics you are breaking the rules of the site, regardless of whether or not you get disciplined for it. So remember, ignoring the rules of the site defines the type person you are, and that usually transfers over to all sectors of your life. Next thing you know you will be lying to the IRS…

For what it’s worth,
I really don’t care what you talk about. I’m grown up enough to turn the page if I don’t like it.

He quotes ”I have posted a few religious/political threads”
Are you kidding us????
How about maybe close to a hundred!
Beside Dan’um, you are the 2nd rabble rouser of this website.
I’ll take bets he shows up with an Alias and becomes the new DKV in drag.

I’m not buying it and I’m sure few others are.

Suggestion: Shut up and see how it goes. THAT very act may actually lower the discussions on religion and politics by +90%. What a great experiment. Great idea!

This post is an example of what can happen if you leave yourself logged in to LJs when your pet is alone in the house.

Last week, my cat ordered 50 pounds of catnip from Amazon – and I don’t have the 1-click option turned on.

I don’t do resolutions. I feel like I am just lying to myself.
