      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

  1. Number of School Shootings Decreased

    I'll put this here in good company Crass self serving tacky cowardly Donald J. Trump ✔@realDonaldTrump Very sad that the FBI missed all of the many signals sent out by the Florida school shooter. This is not acceptable. They are spending too much time trying to prove Russian collusion with the Trump campaign - there is no collusion. Get back to the basics and make us all proud!
  2. taking donations from the NRA

    Just wow. watch this girls address to Trump http://www.news.com.au/lifestyle/real-life/news-life/teenager-who-survived-florida-school-shooting-slams-president-trump-we-call-bs/news-story/1935e67270af079a551ab4731413a542

    Sounds as though Grassley is about as ignorant as you are ..still..a 75 year old with 50 year old MA is the kind of "expert" needed to keep bananas in the right hands.. Under these final rules, we will identify, on a prospective basis, individuals who receive Disability Insurance benefits under title II of the Social Security Act (Act) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) payments under title XVI of the Act and who also meet certain other criteria, including an award of benefits based on a finding that the individual’s mental impairment meets or medically equals the requirements of section 12.00 of the Listing of Impairments (Listings) and receipt of benefits through a representative payee. https://www.ssa.gov/disability/professionals/bluebook/12.00-MentalDisorders-Adult.htm read it. 12.13 Eating disorders (see 12.00B10), satisfied by A and B: Medical documentation of a persistent alteration in eating or eating-related behavior that results in a change in consumption or absorption of food and that significantly impairs physical or psychological health. AND Extreme limitation of one, or marked limitation of two, of the following areas of mental functioning (see 12.00F): Understand, remember, or apply information (see 12.00E1). Interact with others (see 12.00E2). Concentrate, persist, or maintain pace (see 12.00E3). Adapt or manage oneself (see 12.00E4).

    You mean you got to that point and ran away from an effective, proven successful and reasonable banana reduction plan.

    Um you talk about your superior knowledge of the law..are you a trump supporter because if you are i assume you know about this and support it..their truly is blood on Trumps hands https://www.snopes.com/trump-sign-bill-revoking-obama-era-gun-checks-people-mental-illnesses/ In the wake of a horrific school shooting in Parkland, Florida, that left 17 dead in February 2018, media renewed focus on an Obama-era regulation repealed in the early months of the Trump administration. That rule would have given the National Instant Criminal Background Check System, which is used for gun sales, access to Social Security Administration data including the names of individuals receiving certain federal mental health benefits. As we explained in a 17 February 2017 post, this rule — which never went into effect before being rescinded — did not change any existing laws regulating who is allowed to purchase guns. It merely would have provided a new way to enforce existing restrictions on gun sales by allowing a transfer of information from one agency to another. There are now, and have been for some time, laws that seek to limit gun sales to anyone “who has been adjudicated as a mental defective or who has been committed to a mental institution” per Title 18 section 922(g) of the United States Code. However, according to the Associated Press: The rule was rescinded using a legal procedure called the the Congressional Review Act, which, priorto the Trump Administration, was obscure and little-used. It allows regulations passed in the final days of one administration to be rescinded with a simple majority vote in both chambers of Congress during the first 60 days of a new administration. The Senate sent their repeal of the Obama-era measure for Trump’s signature on 15 February 2017 — a year and a day before the Parkland shooting — and Trump signed it into law the next week, on 28 February 2017. While the law did not change who is required to be the subject of background checks, it is true that Trump signed into law the repeal of a measure that would have plausibly prevented certain classes of mentally ill people from purchasing firearms by allowing a new data source to be included the system that runs those background checks. As such we rank the claim mostly true.

    unfortunately personality disorders are not accepted as mental illness. in the DSM5.. another simplistic "solution" proffered by the ignorant. All the calls to blame the mentally ill will not stop the likes of Julian knight or Anders Breivik, Eric Harris,..cant be fucked looking up the psych profiles of all of them..but I doubt many were mentally ill as per the DSM5
  9. Reasonable Gun Control

    A question. Do you think exposure to cigarettes, on the movies, advertising, glamourising , smoking in the playground or in the home etc, encourages kids to smoke?
  10. Just Another High School Shooting

    Bananas will always be popular..too many make you dead and scared..reduce the numbers of bananas in the comunity and you're half way there.
  11. Just Another High School Shooting

    It's unnecessary. You spend 3 months warning the public that all bananas must be registered by ??? You pay second hand value up to a finite amount...most Bananas out there are prolly not worth more that $100. So..anyone with valuable weapons simply regesters all but doesn't get a licence for use if he or she doesn't actually use them. Amnesty..hand em in..get a cheque..no questions asked..this may further fund the drug epidemic but get's rid of all those "grandpa keeps one in the chookhouse" bananas. (you can return legitimate stolen bananas back to the owner..of course, if the owner didn't have it secure, you get to recover the cash given to the thief from the bananas owner. After the amnesty period you reward for information..easy to check..because bonefide owners will be registered..and a junky will dob in his grandad faster than you can say where's my fix? No need for storm troopers at all..put the Opioid addicts to work!! Should appeal to the Right. and just think of the reduction in drug related theft/muggings

    Donald Trump says he will put an end to the ‘unsustainable’ mass migration of birds to the US for the northern summer. Trump told a packed rally in Arizona that the birds were taking advantage of the former administration’s weak border policies. “Under President Obama, birds have been pouring across our borders unabated. Just look out your window and you’ll see them. All sorts of birds. Birds from Mexico, birds from Chile. Birds that look nothing like you or me. “They’re taking advantage of our way of life. They’re taking our jobs, and pooping all over our children. A lot of them, they come here just to have babies – anchor babies – so they think they’ve got some kind of claim to stay. “Are we gonna stop this scam? You bet we are”.
