      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. Net Neutrality - gone.....

    I'm on the FCC. Please stop us from killing net neutrality By JESSICA ROSENWORCEL http://beta.latimes.com/opinion/op-ed/la-oe-rosenworcel-fcc-net-neutrality-repeal-20171122-story.html Excerpt - But this week, the leadership at the Federal Communications Commission put forth a plan to gut the foundation of this openness. They have proposed to end net neutrality, and they are trying to force a vote on their plan on Dec. 14. It's a lousy idea. And it deserves a heated response from the millions of Americans who work and create online every day. Net neutrality is the right to go where you want and do what you want on the internet without your broadband provider getting in the way. It means your broadband provider can't block websites, throttle services or charge you premiums if you want to reach certain online content.

  4. Trump Soho

    Oopsie - building owner jettisoning the Trump brand NY Times Trump Organization Will Walk Away From Its Struggling SoHo Hotel in New York https://mobile.nytimes.com/2017/11/22/business/trump-organization-soho-hotel.html Excerpt - The announcement came on his television show, “The Apprentice.” Donald J. Trump would open his second luxury hotel in New York, a “work of art” in the SoHo neighborhood of Manhattan that would become “an awe-inspiring masterpiece.” That was 11 years ago. The 46-story skyscraper, it turned out, was actually an albatross for Mr. Trump — drawing local opposition soon after its unveiling, partisan protests when he became a candidate for president and political scrutiny because of its early ties to a dubious Russian deal maker. Now, in the latest sign of strain in the president’s family business, the Trumps want no more. The Trump Organization has reached a deal that will allow the company to walk away from the property by the end of next month, the company said Wednesday. It is the second time this year the Trump name was erased from a hotel development, after a June announcement in Toronto. Located in an upscale neighborhood in a deeply Democratic city, the SoHo hotel has struggled to attract guests at five-star prices and has dropped its rates to keep rooms occupied. The property also includes condominiums that have been slow to sell. And when the building’s main restaurant decided to close in April, a lawyer for the restaurant attributed it to a decline in business “since the election.”

    Not you personally. I've noted your attempts to tread lightly in support of your team's current insanity.
  6. Spectacular Accumulation of Lies

    It's beeen earned. This era will be remembered darkly.
  7. Spectacular Accumulation of Lies

    Guilty as charged. I'm pissed off and it shows, but you can't convince me that your "team" is in the right on issue after issue. Fix that and we have a shot at what this guy is talking about -
  8. Spectacular Accumulation of Lies

    You want me to 'understand and accept' the load of horseshit being spread by the GOP? Not a chance. I feel a moral obligation to resist, and I find the support of the overarching position of the Right to be immoral. It helps to be on the right correct side of history.

    Where are the righties? I would expect a vigorous defense of the Party program.
  11. Next up! Al Franken

    Seems a fair trade. After all, Franken apologized and Moore denied. The Dog/Moore standard.

  14. Tax “Reform”

    What's a few trillion amongst friends? ysis of Donald Trump's Revised http://www.taxpolicycenter.org/publications/analysis-donald-trumps-revised-tax-plan ABSTRACT This paper analyzes presidential candidate Donald Trump’s revised tax proposal, which would significantly reduce marginal tax rates, increase standard deduction amounts, repeal personal exemptions, cap itemized deductions, and allow businesses to elect to expense new investment and not deduct interest expense. His proposal would cut taxes at all income levels, although the largest benefits, in dollar and percentage terms, would go to the highest-income households. Federal revenues would fall by $6.2 trillion over the first decade before accounting for added interest costs. Including interest costs, the federal debt would rise by $7.2 trillion over the first decade and by $20.9 trillion by 2036.
