      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. So what's your point there walnut brain? Besides the one on your head. From your link.
  2. Recovery summer?
  3. That last statement is particularly ironic because this case was an opportunity for the Court to overturn their own decision in Cruikshank, in which they said that a white mob that massacred 160+ blacks did not deprive them of any federally protected right to assemble or to bear arms because the Bill of Rights did not apply to lower governments. While I agree with Sol in his last post, above, why should I/we gloat over a decision that should have been a no-brainer in the first place? Good job Supreme Court. Now let's move-on to repeal ObamaCare.
  4. ..no brains, no headaches. Who ya' tryin' to control eh, BG?
  5. You're joking right? There's insurance for anything and everything. Especially in the good ol' USA. Let me introduce you to my friend Peter B. Lewis, I'm sure he wants to build another Frank Gehry building somewhere.
  6. Funnier still..... Bump.
  7. with the dow up 273 today sitting at 10,200 you are looking more stupid than usual....... TOTH to Obama? Ahhh the moron responds. You're an idiot. Bump
  8. I wonder what would happen if you did a quick search as to how much and often each of those two has been quoted recently. Not scientific, but might be enlightening as to who has the ear of the public. As for Biden being a heartbeat away from the football - the same could be said about Palin had McCain won. Of course, in that scenario, the heartbeat would have been more tenuous. Why do you people keep equivocating when it comes to Biden? From a constitutional perspective he is the second most powerful person in the US and (perhaps) the world. Yet you keep turning back to Palin, some campy 'celebrity', Alaskan secessionist. Hell she isn't even speaking on behalf of the party that nominated her for the vp spot, she is speaking at a quasi-disorganized grass roots upstart. I mean for crap's sake this isn't even on a par with Ross Perot or John Anderson's bids for a third party alternative! And the speculation that McCain would have had medical issues is laughable. One could just as easily say that Obama is more likely to be assassinated by a supremacist than McCain is like to have had a medical problem that would cause a constitutional crisis. Oh, and last we checked, Palin isn't VP, Joe Biden is! Geezus you people are blinded by your partisan myopia. We have a really weak president and an idiot for a vice president....couple that with a dingbat as leader of the house.....what have you people done? Best we can hope for is we skate through the next 3 years. If not the alternative is that the top two in line for the CIC job can't serve and we get Hiliary were Obama not be able to fulfill his obligation. Imagine that being our best option if something bad were to happen! Hiliary being our best option....holy crap how stupid must the American electorate be. Great rant!
  9. Go figure, huh?
  10. So let me get this straight, she calculated that this would make her look dumb - which she shrewdly realizes - makes them dems or anyone else for that matter - look ELITIST for criticizing her...... And therefore further binds her to the tea baggers who consider themselves - common - like her........ Sorry Joann williams but that does not pass the sniff test. You and I both know it Dog I cannot think of a politician, past or present, who is that calculated who also does not mind acting like he is a dummy Maybe Reagan but 99.9% of all pols have such huge egos that it precludes them from pretending to be a dummy for the sake of votes. Hey, there's a first time for a lot of things. But I don't believe that Gov. Palin is that calculating. Pelosi on the other hand, wishes, strives, craves she could be that calculating.
  11. why.... it's...... Brrrriiiilllllliant!!! Meanwhile back at the White House: ....get Plouffe in here, we got a problem!
  12. Day after: SCOTUS ruling not so bad?
  13. A new coalition is already calling on Congress to amend the Constitution to change the ruling. “In this decision, a handful of unelected judges have revealed their agenda to expand the influence of corporations at the expense of the rights of individuals, and it will not stand the test of time,” said Lisa Graves, executive director of the Center for Media and Democracy and former chief counsel of the Senate Judiciary Committee. - Politico From the article.
  14. That's the great thing about free choice. You can buy whatever you want.
  15. Good stuff. While I've been aware of the actual history of the landing and settlement for a number of years now since reading Bradford's Log, it was good to take in the three refreshers you posted above. Thanks for that, the message and Happy Thanksgiving.
