      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. Pending US Govt Shutdown

    The VA I go to is nothing like it was in the past. I consider it better than many mainstream hospitals.
  2. Evidence of collusion?

    So is Jeanine Pirro, she best get out of the woods before the Secret Service takes a shot at her for being a rabid dog.
  3. Trickle down

    I agree and would add a modified tax structure to that mix.
  4. Evidence of collusion?

    Imagine walking in the woods and running into that.
  5. Evidence of collusion?

    Poster girl of Republican crazeee
  6. Why did Trump pay $130,000 to silence a woman?

    Posting what again?
  7. Trickle down

    Maternal life expectancy is down. Also, we are ranked at 26th in life expectancy, just 79 years. Somebody is doing a lousy job.
  8. Trickle down

    We need to explore the problem more. China has gone from 88% poverty in 1981 to 6.5% poverty in 2012. We definitely could learn from that and others. Perhaps if we weren't so defensive that we had to use talking points whenever the discussion comes up?
  9. Pending US Govt Shutdown

    "The Department of Veterans Affairs won’t be hurt as much as many federal agencies in the event of a partial government shutdown, but officials are warning there still will be some disruptions for veterans. About 4 percent of the department’s workforce — nearly 16,000 workers — would be subject to furloughs during a shutdown, with almost half of that total coming from the Veterans Benefits Administration. Checks would continue to be sent to veterans eligible for VA payouts, but education benefits assistance programs and case appeals work would be temporarily shuttered. Those impacts were first laid out by department officials last August, before the first in a series of four shutdown threats over federal spending in the last five months." As a result, most of the department’s 377,000-plus employees won’t be affected by a partial shutdown. VA officials said only a small number of Veterans Health Administration workers will be temporarily sent home, and none of them deal directly with patient care. https://www.navytimes.com/veterans/2018/01/19/va-could-weather-a-government-shutdown-better-than-most-other-departments/
  10. Pending US Govt Shutdown

    Actually, it was pure theater to protest since Sarah Palin and Ted Cruz fired up those vets and led the protest.
  11. Trickle down

    $1.25 a day to $1.90 a day ain't life beautiful for some people. Wouldn't it be nice if those metrics included nutrition, child mortality, education, and access to water and electricity?
  12. Evidence of collusion?

    Unfortunately, all of these paranoid rantings from the right eventually turn up nothing before crumbling into dust. I wonder how history will view these last twenty-five years of witch hunts?
  13. Cadet Bone Spurs

    Trump knows when to stay quiet. He never responded to Eminem, Arnold Schwarzenegger, or Lebron when he called him a bum. But be patient, his next wild rally he'll say a soldier who doesn't have legs knows nothing about bone spurs or something equally stupid and Sarah Hucklebee Sanders will say that we misunderstood him.
