      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.

    Yeah, what you’re seeing is construction “stretch”. It’s just the weave relaxing and tightening, over and over. Try the smaller diameter recommendation. You just aren’t putting that line under enough load.
  2. He knew what he signed up for

    probably true. I keep thinking this guy is like every other ADD-suffering executive I know. And he's not...
  3. hell if I know. probably just a branding move. Old brand wasn't driving sales, new, improved ISIS coming up...
  4. He knew what he signed up for

    i have to blame the staffers on this one. the soldiers name has to be in BIG -BOLD letters on the top of the briefing document - right above the pre-written words that little-finger should just plain READ. and then shut up and hand the phone over to Kelly....
  5. maybe, maybe not. I think it was a jab at the prior administration, and we could argue over which of the 2 were more transparent. But that's besides the point. The reporting from "TheHill" is really crap. There might be something there, but the basics of the writing is easy to pick apart. The writer & editors clearly don't know what the FCPA is. They took the witnesses attorney's word for something that sounds ludicrous on it's face. Seems to me the writer is making a huge leap between disparate events. BTW - that $500k to Bill? Standard speaking fee. My former company paid his charity that much to hang out with our management for a day. Powell was cheap, less than $200k... But I think that was to Powell directly.
  6. He knew what he signed up for

    You know, each time I see this headline, I think "That's why Trump is so ill fit to be the President" As opposed to the soldier, Trump really DIDN'T know what he was signing up for. Caring for American's that didn't vote for him? Being the Counselor in Chief empathy? Who knew it would be this hard? (everyone)
  7. He knew what he signed up for

    I believe them both. I find Hillary as cuddly as a porcupine, and Trump as empathetic as a honey badger.
  8. If ISIS is gone, it’s on his watch. Bloviate away.
  9. The reporting here so far is bullshit, so I have to ask, since when can the FBI (exec branch for those who conveniently forget) keep someone from testifying to congress? Congresses job is oversight of the FBI. Counselor Sol to the forum please. Text in question: ” but was asked by the FBI to sign a nondisclosure agreement (NDA) that prevents him from revealing what he knows to Congress, Toensing explained.
  10. Shooting fish in a barrel.

    Yes, you know what the solution is.
  11. He knew what he signed up for

    Yep
  12. He knew what he signed up for

    You’re as bad as trump. One thread, you MUST listen to the families. This thread? No. Why is that? I wonder if we have another closeted Dabs here.
  13. He knew what he signed up for

    Fuck off, I’m using a phone. That’s a direct copy from CNN report. Note the quotation marks. Not even CNN would be so bold as to lie about a direct, attributed quote.
  14. He knew what he signed up for

    Using his attack dog sanders. We know that the widow collaborated the critter. WH response: "The President was completely respectful, very sympathetic," Sanders insisted.
