More Republicans walking away:

Rep. Martha Roby is the second Republican woman to announce she'll retire at the end of this Congress...

Rep. Susan Brooks (R-Ind.), the recruitment chair for the National Republican Congressional Committee, said in June she would not seek reelection in 2020...

Two other Republican members of the House ― Reps. Paul Mitchell (Mich.) and Pete Olson (Texas) ― also announced their retirements this week...

Looks like another Elephant is going to #walkaway.

"Kansas GOP Sen. Pat Roberts won't seek re-election in 2020".



I just saw that Eagle is deleted, speaking of people walking away. When did that happen? All the dudes I used to love hanging crap with back in the day are gone except you

I think the Eagle began feeling as though some on TFS were going over the top in political and/or religious attacks.

Of course we're not supposed to "talk" about past members, but I don't mean anything bad about or towards Eagle.

I have always had only the most positive opinion of Eagle.

He might well be correct. We have lost some extreme right wing and/or extreme religious types. For me that is sad. I personally like the banter. But some of those people did in fact cross the proverbial line. Of course there are also people who are extremely left and/or extremely anti-religion here. I hope Eagle did not view me as one of the worst that drove him away, but maybe I have been.

Such is life... on the internet.

TFS has lost its luster for some.

I have wondered at TFS's survival... metaphorically speaking TFS is the last of a species of large mammal... when "we" fall into extinction, as is inevitable, we will be missed by few if any.

It looks like Cadet Bone Spurs' comments about Baltimore might be leading towards a few more Elephants walking away.

Yeah this place did change. I no doubt played a part in that as I stopped engaging in the banter after Dave left. I was warned not to get involved in debating a certain person here and in hindsight the one that warned me was right. It sucked up a lot of my time and gave me forum fatigue, then when I came back almost everyone had left...

I thought these types of forums might have got a boost when FarceBook and other places increased their censorious ways, but it seems not to have happened at all. Shame.

Still, I have to admit were it not for the fact that I was laid up for a few months after a serious health issue, I would ever have joined a forum. It was something I did purely as a means of distracting myself from the hours I would normally have spent body building or playing sport.

TFS was incredibly important to me then, because as someone who had always been physically active, suddenly I was unable to do more than walk for a few minutes a day. A new guitar, lots of bourbon and TFS helped keep me sane.

Haha no worries. I meant it was a bummer that Eagle left. We certainly had our share of fun times, with Dave as well. I suppose all that silly banter left a while back though with Dave. Last he was on that I can recall was right after Trump won to rub it all in our faces.

A fifth Republican congressman appears set to quit the party in the space of two weeks amid ongoing tension over Donald Trump’s presidency.

Representative Mike Conaway will not seek re-election to his Texas seat in 2020, the Politico website reported. He has not confirmed his decision or reason for retiring but he is set to make a statement to the media.

I hope none of that was a subtle jab against my blue dress… If it was, I'm going to dash off into a corner of a dark room or perhaps a closet and cry myself silly…

Rest assured Chaski, never shall I jab, subtly or otherwise, your blue dress, or anything contained therein...

Yep, I knew what you meant It is sad...

When I joined Dave and Ko were in full swing... those two were hilarious.

Bozie, Someone Else, GSnap, Tariki, Eagle, you and quite a few others... This place was rocking... I still get a laugh out of some old threads here sometimes...
