      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.

  2. Roy Moore 3rd rail?

    From UVa's Center for Politics: http://www.centerforpolitics.org/crystalball/ The following is from the story and is related to polling for the race: " Polls, already close before the really bad stories about Moore began appearing about a week ago, seem to have tightened further, with Jones even leading in some. For instance, Politico’s Alex Isenstadt reported on Wednesday that the National Republican Senatorial Committee — no friend of Moore’s even before the sexual misconduct stories broke, to be sure — has Moore down 51%-39% to Jones in its polling. However, we’re not sure how useful polls will be in this race: Anticipating turnout in a special election like this is very hard. What we do know is 1.) Last week’s elections and special elections conducted throughout the year have shown high levels of Democratic enthusiasm in both liberal and conservative jurisdictions; 2.) Jones is likely to have a big resource advantage in this race — he’s already outspent Moore 11-to-one on TV ads, according to Advertising Analytics — with national Republicans staying away from Moore; and 3.) Moore may have trouble preventing poor Republican turnout given his horribly damaged candidacy. "

    You are probably right. I wonder if there would be 66 votes if the Repubs were defending the majority of Senate sets in 2018 rather than the Dems.

  5. Roy Moore 3rd rail?

    Agree that the Senate will not refuse to seat him. In the case of Powell v McCormack, SCOTUS said that if an elected candidate met the Constitutional requirements for holding office (age, residency, citizenship) then he could not be excluded. The court did make a distinction between excluding him and expelling him, a power that Congress has under article . Specifically, article 1, section 5: " Each House may determine the Rules of its Proceedings, punish its Members for disorderly Behavior, and, with the Concurrence of two-thirds, expel a Member. " Just as an impeachable offense is whatever a majority of Congress says it is, a behavior seriously enough to be expelled would appear to be the same.
  6. Impeachment!

    May not be anything left after he pulls the trigger. A moot point or a pyrrhic victory. Definitely not a case of better late than never
  7. Why does he lie?

    Why does he lie? Remember the fable about the scorpion and the frog? "It's in his nature."
  8. Roy Moore 3rd rail?

    Seems appropriate and timely to drag this out: "The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing." - Edmund Burke

    I'm not sure they speak English
  10. Geniuses on The Right

    I would love to see the market and demographic research showing the relationship between Volvo driving and Hannity watching.
  11. Geniuses on The Right

    Geniuses on The Right" That would be your basic oxymoron. Note: I fully understand it is intended to be sarcastic/cynical.

    A "kid" by my definition is anyone at least 25 years younger than I am at any given moment. Chris just about meets that criterion.
  13. New Sails

    Custom has been out of business for years. The "kid" who used to work there has been running his own loft for well over a decade. Chris seems to be doing some pretty decent work. Here's a link: http://nielsonsailmakers.com/index.html

    Donald has a tailor? Every time I see his ill-fitting suit, his too long tie, etc. I think of one of Dolly Parton's great lines: "it costs a lot of money to look this cheap."
