To reiterate my point... the process of selecting a President every four years is an opportunity to bring Americans together to choose a leader. All the great Presidents have won by bringing people together and not by dividing the American people one against another.

This thought certainly carries over to what we face as Airstreamers in choosing the leadership for our club. If we pick people who lead us in seeing what we have in common rather than how we are different we will thrive as a group. Wally lead his caravans in putting aside any differences and sharing the gift of trailer travel with the world... it sure seems to have worked - 45 years after his death we are still following his lead.

Enough!! Already

I'm on line here at the Air Forum to gain knowledge about Airstreaming.I'm not here to gain knowledge about who supports Obama or McCain or why I should support either one.Please if you want to express you political ideas go to those web sites.Let this be a neutral area for discussing Airstream concerns and sharing our knowledge and love of Airstreaming.
Can I get an Amen?

The ad is an ad, bought and paid for. As long as we don't discuss politics here, it should not be problem.

Reread all of the posts here and have not seen even a hint of support either way. Nor Have I seen anyone expressing political ideas. It's an ad that is bought and paid for that helps support this site. I'd rather see some exchange of views on oil speculation or gun laws than political correctness.

OK boys and girls, here it is one more time from the FORUM POLICY page in case you missed it. Let's say it all together now....NO POLITICS ON THE FORUM!

Be Appropriate!
Please don't post it here if you wouldn't say it to your grandmother.

I don't mind ads for Airstreams, camping, supplies, repairs, etc., etc. Airstreamin' is a way for me & ours to relax and get away from the nonsense, (especially POLITICS!). There's enough other related businesses to Airstreaming & camping that would probably love some ad space somewhere on the forum!

We will be seeing ads everywhere on these guys and have for the past gawd-only-knows how long. I'd just appreciate not seeing them here on the forums. They're invading everywhere else...

Correct! mi silver -- we haven't even had reason to start a mod discussion on this thread. Members have been staying within lines of the Community Rules; ie, "Discussion of politics and religion is permitted only in association with the topic of this forum." Which is why this is a good thread -- and we've seen recent postings on other political figures and palletized Airstreams maintained by the Air Force.

There's gotta be some karma to pass around here somewhere...

It's all black and white to me.

kinda like the place that will offer half off prices to wally members but not other airstream owners. it's their business, they can do as they choose. advertising thats all.divisive, maybe to some, guess for yourself. I don't need an ad to develop my thought process, there's drugs for that.
seems as the stuff on the sidebars helps float this boat, part of the game I guess, change the channel or whatever.
Go camping, pound down a few cold ones and relax

What he said.

If you want to take exception to an ad, it seems as though there is plenty of opportunity to do so:
There is the McCain ad in question here
There is another thread talkin' about a "sexy Bikerplanet" ad
There is the Tina Turner ad where she's obviously not wearing a bra

We got a bit of something for everyone I guess.
If nothing else, the ads do seem to have gained the attention that they were designed for.
If the content offends me, I'm pretty sure I can ignore the ad. We all have to make those choices daily regarding T.V. and billboard ads.

It's just another ad for a product. I don't notice or look at any of the ads on the internet. I have taught myself to completely ignore.

Other issues

I'm still trying to decide if I want a Honda 2000 genset and later add a second, or just get a 3000, or get that 3500 Yamaha.....

I guess you all are technically correct. We aren't talking about politics per se. I just can't help think that some of these posts would have been pulled if the topic of discussion was another candidate (or perhaps his wife). Maybe post 14, 15 and 17. But hey, that's just my 2 cents.
