      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. Twitter Toddler in Chief back at it

    If you must. But it's not my fault if they create another generation of idiots.
  2. Health care sticker shock

    Civic literacy as a subset of overall illiteracy.
  3. Twitter Toddler in Chief back at it

    Makes no difference if they are ignorant or racist. Find them and make sure that they never vote or reproduce again.
  4. Roy Moore 3rd rail?

    Gotta have a bible and 10 commandments in there somewhere.
  5. Health care sticker shock

    I read or heard the other day that the sign-up period for the ACA had been shortened this year and the advertising budget had been cut. If accurate, it is even more amazing at the number of people signing-up.
  6. What IS harrassment?

    What is wrong? Maybe nothing but I'm not about potentially sacrifice my career, salary, bonus, retirement, reputation, etc. because an offhand or casual remark is misinterpreted. Too much at stake.
  7. What IS harrassment?

    In the current highly charged political and social environment we inhabit harassment is just about whatever she says it is. "Nice sweater" is said by him in exactly that context. She interprets it as "nice tits" and its off to HR we go.
  8. Roy Moore 3rd rail?

    POTUS speaks: http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/nationworld/politics/ct-roy-moore-accusations-trump-20171121-story.html "We don't need a liberal person in there," Trump said of Moore's rival, Democrat Doug Jones. "We don't need somebody who's soft on crime like Jones." "Roy Moore denies it, that's all I can say," Trump said. "He denies it." (badlatitude's comments went up as I was writing this)
  9. Anti-LGBT Legislator Caught Having Sex With Man

    Just another twist on "don't do as I do; do as I say."
  10. Next POTUS?

    Don't disagree. But almost no matter who the Dems nominate they will win HI, WA, OR, CA, NY, NJ, CT, DC, probably VA. Need someone who can win back WI, PA, MI, hold onto IL. Have to put FL & NC in play, maybe OH. But since I don't know what I'm having for dinner tonight the idea of predicting out to 2019 and 2020 is iffy at best. Just too many unknown and unknowables.
  11. Anti-LGBT Legislator Caught Having Sex With Man

    So far the data are anecdotal and limited, but there is a correlation starting to appear between so-called family values/Evangelical/conservative Christian candidates/elected officials and the likelihood of sexual "improprieties."
  12. Next POTUS?

    Assume you meant "sound like." The Dems, rightly or wrongly, have the image of appealing to coastal elites as defined by the right wing. Now maybe, just maybe, those votes in PA, WI, MI that Hilary lost will come back in 2020 but that is less likely if the Dems nominate some progressive firebrand unless Trump and his elk literally burn the place down.
  13. Tax “Reform”

    Because he is one of those "job creators" we keep hearing so much about. Need to read the fine print to know those are jobs for Asians.
  14. Next POTUS?

    Julian Castro was getting a lot of play as possible VP to Hilary. Dems need to be careful. Too much identity politics (female, black, Hispanic, gay, transgendered, etc) and the right wing will have a field day.
  15. Roy Moore 3rd rail?

    Just when you think that politics cannot be more crass: Kellyanne Conway's New Position On Roy Moore: We Need His Tax Bill Vote https://www.yahoo.com/news/kellyanne-conway-reverses-course-roy-143726033.html Kellyanne Conway suggested Monday that Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore’s potential to help pass the GOP’s tax bill outweighs the mounting child molestation accusations against him ― a stance that represents a major shift from comments she made last week on the matter. “Whatever the facts end up being, the premise, of course, the principle, the incontrovertible principle, is that there is no Senate seat worth more than a child,” the White House counselor told “Fox & Friends” on Thursday in response to allegations that Moore sexually molested teen girls when he was in his 30s. But on Monday, Conway seemed all but ready to throw Moore’s accusers under the bus in exchange for the candidate’s potential to help pass the GOP’s tax bill. “So vote Roy Moore?” asked “Fox & Friends” co-host Brian Kilmeade after Conway bashed Doug Jones, Moore’s Democratic opponent in the race. “I’m telling you that we want the votes in the Senate to get this tax bill through,” Conway responded.
