That's a rant we've all had.

I'll try to be respectful! But let me have one little vent: Spark People seems to be a predominantly conservative demographic. I try not to discuss politics on my teams. But I really cannot understand all of the (mostly) women here who are scraping by on food stamps and public assistance and yet claim to be tea party members.....

Oh..and Donald Trump claims that Obama is a "news hog"!.

It's amazing how much conservatives don't want to see, isn't it?

Good to be amoung liberals. I'll be civil.
More than I am on Facebook sometimes....LOL.

Nah...I'm not really bad over there. Just tend to 'share' stuff that the Conservatives probably don't wanna see.

There has been some, but I won't go into details. Mostly this is just a matter of covering a necessary base.

Gosh, have I missed something?! I haven't seen any disrespect. If I've missed such, I'm happy that I did.

I belong to several other teams that have more to do with my weight, either how I have gotten to where (ex. emotional eating) I am or what affects my weight loss (ex. hypoglycemia), but this team is the one I enjoy the most because I love the comments from the members and I usually learn something.

Thank you for reminding us to be civil to each other. To me that is part of the backbone of being a liberal - to be able to respect that we all do not believe the same things but we all have a right to those beliefs.

This is what has now motivated me to lose weight. Having your pictures on your website will do a lot to motivate a person. www.AmyxFineJewelry.com

As a political forum, we encourage debate and welcome opposing points of view. However, personal attacks and "trolling" are not covered under the umbrella of reasoned debate.

This team is meant be an enjoyable forum for the free exchange of ideas, not a battleground. Please keep your posts respectful of other members.
