There is nothing wrong with being political, it is a fact of life we all live with, the problem is that on an individual basis politics become partisan politics, whereby in your myopic view, the opposition can do nothing right to you, and his/her views are demonized, and becomes not only the opposition but the enemy, that is true for Repubs and Democrats alike and that is why if you read across many boards, Obama is the enemy now, just as Bush was previously, and the next president whomever it maybe will become. with that said, SO is a good stock to hold for the long term, kind of a modern day orphans and widows stock.
I am not being critical of politics per se, just the excessive yapping of dogs of different ilk overwhelms the few who want to discuss the stock. Yahoo needs to establish boards for bores, so they can post their political views without bothering legitimate posters. The drivel hoard must have liked your post.
