      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. He knew what he signed up for

    Sober indeed. “Which convention, John Kelly? Was it when at the Democratic Convention, a Gold Star family that happens to be Muslim spoke out against DONALD “MUSLIM BAN” TRUMP and asked if their son, who gave his life for this country, would even be welcome in Donald Trump’s America? And then Donald Fucking Trump proceeded to ATTACK THAT FAMILY FOR DAYS ON END, because their comments got under his pussy thin skin? Was it Khizr and Ghazala Khan who took away the “sacredness” of Gold Star families, or was it YOUR FUCKING BOSS, GENERAL?

    STFU Donald. Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump The Fake News is going crazy with wacky Congresswoman Wilson(D), who was SECRETLY on a very personal call, and gave a total lie on content! 10:53 PM · Oct 19, 2017

    Are you in favor of abolishing Medicare and Medicaid?

    We should all just shut the fuck up on this issue and move on. Trust me, there will be plenty more fodder for outrage. Kelly has a point. I'm not one to run to Trump's defense, but this is a very difficult part of the job. Was he eloquent? No. Show compassion? Doesn't seem like he is capable. When a man operates with that level of narcissism, don't expect to see a lot of empathy. He has none. But he made the call. He's made many. Not a job I would want.
  6. G. W. on Trumpism

    Will he ever get the message? He's got to know his legacy is starting to look pretty bleak. Well, maybe not. NY Times Without Saying ‘Trump,’ George W. Bush Delivers an Implicit Rebuke Excerpt - Former President George W. Bush never mentioned his name but delivered what sounded like a sustained rebuke to President Trump on Thursday, decrying nationalism, protectionism and the coarsening of public debate while calling for a robust response to Russian interference in American democracy. In a speech in New York, Mr. Bush defended free trade, globalization and immigration even as Mr. Trump seeks to raise barriers to international commerce and newcomers from overseas. He condemned the “casual cruelty” he sees in public discourse and denounced white supremacy two months after Mr. Trump suggested that “both sides” were to blame at a neo-Nazi rally that turned violent in Virginia. “We’ve seen nationalism distorted into nativism, forgotten the dynamism that immigration has always brought to America,” Mr. Bush said. “We see a fading confidence in the value of free markets and international trade, forgetting that conflict, instability and poverty follow in the wake of protectionism. We’ve seen the return of isolationist sentiments, forgetting that American security is directly threatened by the chaos and despair of distant places.” The former president said these afflictions have created a crisis of confidence in the United States that has endangered its historic ideals. “In all these ways, we need to recall and recover our own identity,” he said. “Americans have great advantage. To renew our country we only need to remember our values.” The former president said these afflictions have created a crisis of confidence in the United States that has endangered its historic ideals. “In all these ways, we need to recall and recover our own identity,” he said. “Americans have great advantage. To renew our country we only need to remember our values.” Mr. Bush addressed these issues at a bipartisan conference that his presidential center sponsored in New York to promote democracy and freedom. Since leaving office in January 2009, he has largely sought to avoid engaging in current-day political struggles, even as he promotes issues he has long cared about like the spread of democracy around the world. His speech on Thursday seemed a clear rejoinder to Mr. Trump in various ways. Asked by a reporter as he left the hall whether his message would be heard in the White House, Mr. Bush smiled, nodded slightly and said, “I think it will.” The Bush family has never been fond of Mr. Trump, who beat former Gov. Jeb Bush of Florida for the Republican presidential nomination last year. Neither the former president nor his father, former President George Bush, voted for Mr. Trump last November. But advisers said the younger Mr. Bush has been deeply troubled by the state of the national debate under a president who routinely demonizes his adversaries on Twitter. “Bullying and prejudice in our public life sets a national tone, provides permission for cruelty and bigotry and compromises the moral education of children,” Mr. Bush said in his speech. “The only way to pass along civic values is to first live up to them.” Mr. Bush, who issued a statement with his father condemning white supremacists after the violence in Charlottesville, Va., in August, returned to the theme. “Bigotry or white supremacy in any form is blasphemy against the American creed,” he said.
  7. Trump vs Media

    Classic - https://mobile.twitter.com/jaketapper/status/920759386431205376 Jake Tapper @jaketapper "Low" would be sexually harassing staffers and then getting fired for it -- humiliated in front of the world. Now THAT would be low. Bill O'Reilly @billoreilly Sean Hannity kicking serious butt in the ratings. Tapper on CNN as low as you can go.

    State of Emergency declared in Florida ahead of Richard Spencer speach - https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/university-florida-city-brace-speech-white-nationalist-richard-spencer-n812151 Excerpt - “Florida Gov. Rick Scott this week issued an executive order declaring a state of emergency for Alachua County, where Gainesville and the university are located. Fuchs estimated the extra cost in security and other expenses at $600,000, but the source of the funding wasn't clear. The order, which allows greater state resources to be used for law enforcement, cites protests and counter-protests at past speaking events "resulting in episodes of violence, civil unrest and multiple arrests."

    Why didn’t he issue this? I guess because it’s not a “win”. White House staff drafted Niger sympathy statement for Trump that was never released Staffers at the National Security Council drafted and circulated a statement of condolence for President Donald Trump to make almost immediately after a deadly ambush of U.S. soldiers in Niger earlier this month. POLITICO on Wednesday, was put together on Oct. 5 and reads as follows: “Melania and I are heartbroken at the news that three U.S. service members were killed in Niger on October 4 while providing guidance and assistance to Nigerien security force counter-terror operations. We offer our deepest condolences to the families and friends of these brave American soldiers and patriots. They will remain in our thoughts and prayers. "We are also praying for the two U.S. service members who were injured in the incident. We wish them a complete and swift recovery. "The heroic Americans who lost their lives yesterday did so defending our freedom and fighting violent extremism in Niger. Our administration and our entire nation are deeply grateful for their sacrifice, for their service, and for their patriotism.” http://www.politico.com/story/2017/10/18/trump-niger-condolence-statement-243917

    Better keep an eye out for black helicopters in the neighborhood.
  12. Thank you John McCain

    Palin never entered my mind, but yeah, that was pretty dumb and I'm sure he regrets it. It's a pity that a Republican Senator (or any Republican for that matter), it seems, can only muster the balls to call it what it is when he has absolutely nothing to lose. The rest of them don't have what it takes to say out loud what they actually think. That's politics I guess.
  13. He knew what he signed up for

    It's a shame this has become a political issue. That congresswoman and Trump should just shut the fuck up and show a little respect. Regardless of what was said, it should have been kept private imo.
  14. Yoo Hoo ... Mr. Obama sir...

    It's really a shame we don't have Happy Jack around to mock these days. Just not the same.
  15. Puerto Rico

    No question, FEMA is definitely spread thin with so many theaters in action. Can't blame the FEMA troops, but leadership seems lacking.
