      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. Actually I see tax cuts and healthcare as separate issues. As to tax cuts I guess you missed where Trump said the top tax payers would not get a cut and went on to say they may pay more. SNAP there goes that talking point. https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2017/09/13/trump-hurricanes-mean-tax-cuts-more-important-than-ever/661040001/
  2. China already did, I guess they liked the speech. https://www.reuters.com/article/us-northkorea-missiles-banks-china/chinas-central-bank-tells-banks-to-stop-doing-business-with-north-korea-sources-idUSKCN1BW1DL BEIJING/HONG KONG (Reuters) - China’s central bank has told banks to strictly implement United Nations sanctions against North Korea, four sources told Reuters, amid U.S. concerns that Beijing has not been tough enough over Pyongyang’s repeated nuclear tests.
  3. Mark is way too subtle for Random.
  4. Exactly, they are Americans just like the citizens in the US, territory or not. We have sent billions in disaster aid for decades to non us citizens. Why the fuck would there be any debate?
  5. Really? In the US Short course pools are 25 Yards. Long course are 50 meters. That applies in High school, YMCA, USA and NCAA swimming https://www.thoughtco.com/olympic-swimming-vs-college-swimming-3168925
  6. If you are saying they vote their beliefs I agree. Were we disagree is how one side is despicable and the other is enlightened.
  7. The last part of this paragraph is telling. You paint hatred BY the entire GOP with the broadest brush imaginable, while completely oblivious to the same hatred you are spewing towards the GOP. It's the same old liberal mantra that keeps costing democrats election after election.
  8. Pretty accurate. One reason the right didn't like Obama was his openly apologizing for America flaws. From the Actions around the world to his the police acted stupidly he certainly presented rhetoric that America is a flawed nation. Appeals to the left pisses off the right Trump is at the other extreme "you fuck with us we will fuck you over twice as hard" tough guy Schtick. Appeals to the right pisses off the left Would love a leader in the middle, but the OP and others make it clear that the left does not want any part of working with the evil GOP.
  9. NPR found more support http://www.npr.org/2017/09/20/552418293/president-trumps-u-n-address-receives-widespread-praise-from-conservatives The reviews of President Trump's speech yesterday in front of the U.N. General Assembly are still coming in. And among conservatives, he's receiving widespread praise.
  10. Regarded by the liberal world. Not all the world Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu praised US President Donald Trump’s speech at the UN General Assembly on Tuesday, in which the American blasted Iran and North Korea, calling it the most “courageous speech” he had ever heard at the world body. “In over 30 years in my experience with the UN, I never heard a bolder or more courageous speech,” Netanyahu said in a statement after the speech. “President Trump spoke the truth about the great dangers facing our world, and issued a powerful call to confront them in order to ensure the future of humanity.”
  11. That is exactly why you do not rewrite the basic rules. Every SC court case would be subject to a court challenge.
  12. Why do you persist in including me in your statements? I've made it clear that I do not have a problem with locals removing civil war statues. Especially those erected in the Jim Crow era
  13. It was a sarcastic come back quip to Meli not an endorsement of terrorism, That I found funny. Geez lighten up Frances.
  14. But politicians on the other team didn't make a political career out of attacking the 1% and the evil people of Wall Street.
