      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. CREW RELEASES REPORT: PROFITING FROM THE PRESIDENCY: A YEAR’S WORTH OF PRESIDENT TRUMP’S CONFLICTS OF INTEREST FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE January 19, 2018 CONTACT: Jordan Libowitz 202-408-5565 | jlibowitz@citizensforethics.org Washington—In his first year in office, President Trump racked up more than 500 potential conflicts of interest, according to a report released today by Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW). CREW researchers spent a year tracking every known interaction between the Trump administration and the Trump Organization in a daily timeline. Here’s what they found: President Trump spent a full third of his first year in office—122 days—visiting his commercial properties. Seventy executive branch officials, more than 30 members of Congress and more than a dozen state officials visited Trump Organization properties during the first year of the Trump administration. President Trump and his White House staff promoted the Trump brand by mentioning or referring to one of the president’s private businesses on at least 35 different occasions during the president’s first year in office. There have been more than 40 instances of special interest groups holding events at Trump properties since January 20, 2017. At least eleven foreign governments paid Trump-owned entities during the president’s first year in office, and at least six foreign government officials have made appearances at Trump Organization properties. Political groups spent more than $1.2 million at Trump properties during the president’s first year in office. Prior to President Trump’s 2016 campaign, annual spending by political committees at Trump properties had never exceeded $100,000 in any given year going back to at least 2002. https://www.citizensforethics.org/press-release/crew-releases-report-profiting-presidency-years-worth-president-trumps-conflicts-interest/
  2. Pending US Govt Shutdown

    "Thank you for calling the White House. Unfortunately, we cannot answer your call today because congressional Democrats are holding government funding — including funding for our troops and other national security priorities — hostage to an unrelated immigration debate. Due to this obstruction, the government is shut down. In the meantime, you can leave a comment for the president at www.whitehouse.gov/contact. We look forward to taking your calls as soon as the government re-opens." https://www.buzzfeed.com/tanyachen/the-white-house-has-a-new-voicemail?utm_term=.agg5WkGQM#.cxVXWeyoE

  7. Boris Johnson says UK should welcome Donald Trump Johnson rejected claims that Trump was presiding over an "isolationist America". (File photo: AFP) AFP, London Sunday, 21 January 2018 Text size A A A British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson called for US President Donald Trump to be welcomed to the UK, warning Sunday that resisting a visit risked damaging his country's national interest. A day ahead of Johnson welcoming his US counterpart Rex Tillerson to Britain for talks, Johnson said postponing any Trump trip would be acting against the UK's "single most extraordinary economic relationship". "Donald Trump is the elected president of the world's greatest and most powerful democracy -- and a country that also happens to be our closest ally," Johnson wrote in The Sunday Telegraph newspaper. He said critics of a Trump visit were ignorant of Britain's economic interests. "In opposing the visit of the president of the United States to this country, they risk actually damaging the national interest." Johnson rejected claims that Trump was presiding over an "isolationist America". He said Trump's administration deserved "respect and recognition" rather than "infantile denigration". https://english.alarabiya.net/en/News/world/2018/01/21/Boris-Johnson-says-UK-should-welcome-Donald-Trump-.html

  11. Salvador, the capital of Brazil’s northeastern state of Bahia, is known for its Portuguese colonial architecture, Afro-Brazilian culture and a tropical coastline. The Pelourinho neighborhood is its historic heart, with cobblestone alleys opening onto large squares, colorful buildings and baroque churches such as São Francisco, featuring gilt woodwork. wonder what the attraction is ?
