      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. Next POTUS?

    If Trump does not start delivering on some of his campaign promises, or at least stop the Twitter nonsense, the Dems are a shoe-in in 2020. As much as I am not crazy about her, Warren sounded and looked more like a leader than Donnie.
  2. Navy stunt in the sky

    Although I used to know this hooker on Chrystie and Broome St... ...
  3. FIFY Anyone with hands on experience knows that the failure was more local govt than FEMA. This was discussed extensively in another thread.
  4. Keystone Pipeline Will Not Use American Steel

    Thanks for clarification. I have a greater confidence in German QC than Third World. Not racist! Just that I have seen issues because of third world QC and read about others— including some catastrophic ones. Will be interesting to see where new pipe comes from
  5. And if you did that a year ago they would call you a racist. my how things change
  6. Hmmm. Let’s review. A person starts a thread documenting that HRC’s team took actions that made them perhaps complicit in entrapping Little Donnie and the left wing calls it spin. The OP provided a link to a solid article published by a paper that does not like Donnie, in my book that adds credibility. Donnie’s mistake was hiring family. If Don jr was an attorney or other hired person, he would be arm’s length and have deniability—- like HRC. I am not thrilled with Donnie! But this being America, the facts of the matter decide his fate. Not opinions, or what happens in CA, or BC.
  7. Wow another rare living recipient of a Darwin Award!!! good shoot’n
  8. Community Reputation Points

    What sucks is that you can’t see the good or bad indicator in Safari!
  9. Thanks well laid out response that argues the point. I buy into your position! So the billion dollar question is if the tax change will lower the value of people’s houses, how to we avoid another housing market collapse?
  10. I am assuming this question is directed at me. Allowing a mortgage interest deduction for small to reasonable size homes in NY and CA allows working people a path to home ownership. Student loan interest should be limited to fully acredited schools of higher education. I agree we need a more educate work force. But we need to provide meaningful education. I am not fully familiar with the endowment tax.
  11. Boat loans are deductible as the mortgage on a second home. IMHO, second home mortgages, second mortgages with cash out (vs. improvement loans) and first mortgages above $500k should not be deductible. We need to reduce debt, not encourage it. By discouraging copious consumption, and reducing debt, we increase the savings and investment rate.
  12. Wow well done Dem spin team!!!! This thread started as a discussion of the irregularities in the Dem pi?primary system. There are some leading leftie Dems who have come out and confirmed that in proprieties occurred. Yet you have spun the discussion! It is now Hillary was better and should have won and Donnie sucks thread. Fact remains HRC hijacked the DNC.
  13. NFL Memo To Players

    Oye Vey! Not going there.
  14. NFL Memo To Players

    Nope I pop in here between charters, occasional delivery and sailing my boat.
  15. NFL Memo To Players

    My post specifically removed the patriotism, respect for the flag question from my most recent input to the discussion. So I will ignore your opening comment. The owners should have given themselves the right to govern the players actions while on the field and include a morals clause for actions off the field. Players should be required to do WTF they are told while at work. Much like any other employee or contract labor person. Off the field if convicted of domestic violence; Dog fighting; Drug use- they should be gone. Sadly the owners and fans do not care if the people who entertain them are felons. Yet their convictions would prevent them from getting many jobs their fans hold. Sorry for rant- have an issue with prima-donnas— one of the reasons I retired
