      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.

    If you're in to podcasts, this one on race and bias is pretty good - https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/ted-radio-hour/id523121474?mt=2&i=1000406499359
  3. Karen McDougal wins her case, free to talk. Should be fun! https://www.nytimes.com/2018/04/18/us/politics/karen-mcdougal-american-media-settlement.html Excerpt - The tabloid news company American Media Inc. agreed to let a former Playboy model out of a contract that had kept her from talking freely about an alleged affair with Donald J. Trump, her lawyer said. The settlement agreement, reached Wednesday, ends a lawsuit brought by the model, Karen McDougal, and protects the president from being drawn into a legal case involving efforts to buy the silence of women who had stories to tell about him during the 2016 campaign.

    It would be helpful if you would provide attribution when posting a quote. And / or a link if that’s not asking too much.

    That’s funny. The only deity Trump worships is the Almighty Dollar.

    No, I don’t assume anything. From the outside looking in, there’s no way to know. It’s quite possible this whole thing is a nothingburger, latched on to by those who want an issue to rail about. I suspect there’s some of this going on. On the other hand, it’s quite possible that this is an example of racial discrimination. Unless we know what prior practice at this store was, we can’t declare a verdict one way or the other.

    Do you assume they would have tossed a couple white guys in a similar situation? If the answer is probably not, then they probably broke the law when they tossed these two guys out.

    I’d like to throw my hat in the ring for Director of the Department of Redundancy Department. * *credit Firesign Theater
  10. Yeah, it’s about time this war with Hong Kong was brought to an end.
  11. Comey interview transcript

    I knew it! He’s been a democRAT all along! Former FBI Director James Comey was a registered Republican for most of his life, but now he believes "the Republican Party has left me and many others." "I just think they've lost their way and I can't be associated with it," Comey said in an interview on the ABC News podcast “Start Here,” adding that he no longer considers himself a Republican.

    I don't know, something about having a complete fuckwit asshole as US president doesn't sit well with me. But that's just me. The Trumpistas around here like to rattle off Trump's "accomplishments" as if any of the other candidates would have accomplished nothing. Maybe so, we will never know.

    Your house is not a “Public Accomodation”. If a couple of white guys loitering in the same fashion would not have been asked to leave, then the store manager illegally discriminated. https://civilrights.findlaw.com/enforcing-your-civil-rights/discrimination-in-public-accommodations.html Federal law prohibits public accommodations from discriminating on the basis of race, color, religion, or national origin. If you think that you have been discriminated against in using such a facility, you may file a complaint with the Civil Rights Division of the Department of Justice, or with the United States attorney in your area. You may also file suit in the U.S. district court. There are also state laws that broadly prohibit discrimination on the bases of race, color, religion, and national origin in places of public accommodation. To determine whether your state has such a law, you should contact your state or local human rights agency, or your state attorney general's office.
