    Maybe it's me. At 56 maybe age is showing. I think I am young, always been a free thinker. Catholic family but I was atheist at 11, Gay when everyone I knew was straight and later, libertarian when most not all my friends were Democrats. I don't join movements, political parties, religions. I look for facts over opinions, I research with a skeptical mind to bias, I believe the scientific method way of thinking has been the greatest advance in human history. Repeatable and demonstrable. A story about someone's Aunt eating garlic everyday and lived to be a 100 is an anectdote not scientific proof of anything. That being said and maybe this is an age thing but funny pics of a politician with a funny caption tells me more about the poster than the politician. It's not only weak but boring. reposting a funny caption of Trump or Biden that honestly has probably been reposted or retweeted 1,000 times before is not a sign of original thought. It's a sign, at least to me, of limited imagination. It's almost plagiarism of someone else way more creative.

    I'm guilty of posting memes now and then. Once in a blue moon I actually create them myself. So at least in those rare instances I can at least claim I'm being creative. icon_lol.gif

    I still provide my thoughts on topics. I usually just end whatever I say with a meme. I find it humorous.
