      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. 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.

    A little perspective -

    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.
  6. 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.

    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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.

    Georgia GOP Candidate Holds Rapid-Fire ‘Bump Stock’ Giveaway Contest https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/elections/georgia-gop-candidate-holds-rapid-fire-bump-stock-giveaway-contest-n811451 Excerpt- WASHINGTON — A Republican candidate for governor in Georgia is giving away a "bump stock," the rapid-fire gun modification linked to the Las Vegas shooting, in a campaign contest to highlight his opposition to new regulation on the devices. State Sen. Michael Williams, who is positioning himself as the most pro-Donald Trump candidate in a crowded GOP field to succeed term-limited Gov. Nathan Deal, said the contest is a celebration of the Second Amendment.
  14. Dog is gonna be bummed - https://www.nytimes.com/2017/10/17/us/politics/alexander-murray-deal-obamacare-subsidies.html?smid=nytcore-ipad-share&smprod=nytcore-ipad WASHINGTON — Two leading senators have reached a bipartisan deal to provide funding for critical subsidies to health insurers that President Trump said last week that he would cut off, Senator Lamar Alexander, Republican of Tennessee, said Tuesday. The plan agreed to by Mr. Alexander and Senator Patty Murray of Washington, a Democrat, is intended to stabilize health insurance markets under the Affordable Care Act. As one part of the deal, the subsidies would be funded for two years, a step that would provide at least short-term certainty to insurers. The subsidies, known as cost-sharing reductions, lower out-of-pocket costs for low-income consumers.
