      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.

  3. A Tax Cut is the same as a Raise?

    "Grasping" taxes is not the same thing as Fiscal Responsibility. I agree that neither party is concerned with our spending problem. this bill isn't even tax reform, as real reform would actually take longer than 'delivering it before thanksgiving' or 'the best christmas gift ever' it's a decent starting point, but it barely puts a dent into the tax codes it's lipstick on a pig i hope it fails, and congress has to actually do some serious work on a different one, if the rich states (ny, nj, ct, ca) aren't wailing like stuck pigs - reform hasn't happened

    You talking to me? I've yet to meet a righty here that grasps taxes. You certainly aren't one of them. you're at least correct on this - I'm not a righty

    I wouldn’t think Mr. Mueller has overlooked this individual. And what’s become of Flynn and Flynn Jr.? They’ve been off the radar screen for a while. It’s possible they’ve already been flipped. The interesting times have only just begun. they were not allowed to testify before congress flynn is gonna be indicted what did the kid do?

  9. Jim Crow in the White House?

    after it became illegal to import slaves (1807) slave owners had a monopoly
  10. Jim Crow in the White House?

    don't try and paint a picture of the typical southerner being a slave owner. that is also demonstrably wrong
  11. Jim Crow in the White House?

    you're right, I phrased that wrong
  12. Jim Crow in the White House?

    away from the plantation coast, slave ownership was impossible - what they did was create kids to work the farms. while there was certainly knowledge of the institution, it wasn't part of their life like it was for the plantation owners. abolition to the plantation owners meant the loss of all their current and future wealth. for most poor southerners, it would not have affected them at all. so why would they have paid attention to what may or may not happen in the expansion west? and many were very isolated, by choice. they wanted their own way of life, and being ignorant of the doings of the rich came with that. lee was always out manned and out gunned. he preyed on the reluctant overconfidence (hows that for descriptors) of the early military leadership of the north. right up to his advance north of the mason dixon and gettysburg. his use of cavalry was impressive in many aspects of the war please don't lump me in with the lost cause. the war was about defending the institution of slavery in the south. the southern poor who fought in the war may not have known it at the start, but they surely became aware. and they could have then walked home
