      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. We are all racist, it's human nature. It's a matter of degree. https://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/busting-myths-about-human-nature/201607/we-re-all-bit-racist
  2. My mother ran the table on Name That Tune. Turns out the game was fixed. The producers chose tunes they knew their favored contestant could identify. We got a new kitchen with the proceeds.
  3. I'm looking forward to "Tumbleweed Tuesday", the day after Memorial Day. We get our town back.
  4. In the YCMTSU catagory, Idaho Falls Rep. Bryan Zollinger the Charlottesville mess was an Obama plot - http://www.spokesman.com/stories/2017/aug/21/bryan-zollinger-doubles-down-on-charlottesville/
  5. https://mobile.twitter.com/realdonaldtrump/status/403511109942247424 Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump Do not allow our very stupid leaders to sign a deal that keeps us in Afghanistan through 2024-with all costs by U.S.A. MAKE AMERICA GREAT! 8:12 AM · Nov 21, 2013 3,867 Retweets 3,321 Likes
  6. I'm not saying that's the reason, but you can bet some of America's Best Citizens are lick'n their chops about now. It appears that the US Military is becoming a bit mercenary. "We'll come help you out, but it's gonna cost you."
  7. Screw the opium - "We take the oil" (from '11) Last night's speech excerpts - "As the prime minister of Afghanistan has promised, we are going to participate in economic development to help defray the cost of this war to us." "The government of Afghanistan must carry their share of the military, political and economic burden." From The NY Times back in '10 - U.S. Identifies Vast Mineral Riches in Afghanistan Excerpt - WASHINGTON — The United States has discovered nearly $1 trillion in untapped mineral deposits in Afghanistan, far beyond any previously known reserves and enough to fundamentally alter the Afghan economy and perhaps the Afghan war itself, according to senior American government officials. https://mobile.nytimes.com/2010/06/14/world/asia/14minerals.html?referer=http://www.globalresearch.ca/the-war-is-worth-waging-afghanistan-s-vast-reserves-of-minerals-and-natural-gas/19769
  8. Sounds like he's sending a couple divisions of Halliburton in there.
  9. My bad - Boston.com estimated 40k
  10. I have a chevy 1500 pickup with 175k miles. Runs great, never a problem other than routine maintenance. Knock wood!
  11. Who needs money when you've got Trump and a legislative train wreck to run against? And it's a lot easier to raise $$ when most of the fat cats on on your side.
  12. If Dems can sustain the energy that saw 20k or so turn out for the Boston protests, they will do just fine. The four losses you point to, although a lot closer than they would have been under normal circumstances, may serve as a motivator to get the Dem vote out. Who knows, a lot can happen between now and the '18 elections.
  13. I posted this in a different thread, but it's a good illustration of your point. Not Bumfuck, Kentucky, but it works.
  14. If only they knew then what they know now. http://www.nbcnews.com/politics/first-read/new-polls-show-trump-s-presidency-stands-perilous-ground-n794436?cid=sm_npd_nn_tw_np
  15. Spot on. And it's going to get worse before it gets better. At some point, economies like ours are going to have to incrementally go more socialist than pure capitalist or there will be big trouble.
