Ok, look, I guess I screwed up with the New Rule. I seem to be a screw up. But Peter Fonda's death meant something different to me. Frankly, I forgot the recent stuff he said, which wasn't very nice. And I know he was political, and I know who his sister was. I'm sorry for screwing up the Forum. But try to understand. Many of you are younger than I am. To me, this meant the guy who did Easy Rider was dead. That's one more nail in MY coffin. If you weren't there, in 1969, you won't understand. Easy Rider was huge back then. A real classic, that had so much play in Americana. There was real meaning to Easy Rider. And this was the beginning of "counter culture", for good or bad. It was a GREAT movie. Maybe it means something different to everyone. Maybe if it came out in 2019 it might not have been so significant. But 1969 was the TIMES. The War. Civil Unrest. Like I said earlier, Counter Culture. And if you want to see a very young Jack Nicholson, here ya go. It meant a lot to me, even that I'm now grown and lean conservative. The news stunned me. Ok?

No more off-topic from me. I will try. Cut me slack this one time and I will improve my habits here.

thanks

RIP Easy Rider

There was nothing wrong with the initial post.

It's possible to discuss an actor without getting into their personal political opinions, just as much as without discussing their favorite sports team or their eating habits.

That's actually what the vast majority of people do.

Well, since Peter Fonda has nothing to do with Vegas or gambling, I assume the "New Rule" is not being enforced in this thread and, as such:



Political, provocative and controversial, and profane.

3 days. Should be longer for multiple rule-breaks, but I'm giving you a chance to catch up on rule changes.

Not sure what your point was in posting this, AOS. You had to have known better. Quoting someone else is no excuse for the content.



I probably would have posted the same info. There is more too. He was a POS in his later years.

His post was a screen shot from the man himself. Sometimes real life is tough to see. If the site is now allowing of topic already, this is what will happen. I'll take the 3 days for him.

I'm changing the title of this topic to "celebrity deaths," so we don't get a new thread with each new death. Behavior in this thread has been rather poor. If that continues, I will get tougher on cracking down on non-gambling topics.

I would like to add that the 2019 Deadpool is one of the most active threads at DT. All are welcome there.

This is a gambling forum.

What part of the 'New Rule' don't you understand?



You must have missed the revision of the rule that was actually posted in the rules thread, since what you quoted isn't current.

Quote: Rule 19

Controversial Speech: In an effort to keep the focus of the forum on gambling, Vegas, and math, comments of a political, racial, religious, sexual, or otherwise controversial nature are not allowed. We recommend taking such discussion elsewhere (Added 8/13/19).

As for Peter Fonda, some people get mean. Actually, I think a lot of people get mean.

I told friends last week I thought he would never be back on air. Some kind of feeling. When his widow took the mic today I knew what happened. Yet another person who had just a year almost to the day from when he entered treatment.

Oh man. Now evenbob will probably struggle to figure out what hes supposed to say for a little bit without getting his daily cues. Hell overcome though.

Considering the way the Thought Police operate here, I'm surprised this post, in and of itself, the single word "Rush", does not qualify for a suspension.

I'm telling you - the "grownups" are out of town. And when they return, boy are they gonna get after all of you!
