      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. Will Roy Moore Bring Back Stoning?

    Seems like a good stoning is the only way you'll be able to get rid of him. Oh, wait...... you mean...... Nevermind.
  2. Hang the rich

    Apparently you haven't known many.
  3. This is an example of why we don't trust Gun Grabberz

    You seem to be having an increasingly tenuous relationship with the truth these days Jeffie.
  4. Roy Moore 3rd rail?

    Virtually all the responses to that are religious bullshit in one way or another. I don't think there's much hope for Alabama whatever the outcome of this election. 40 years later these lyrics still apply. "Alabama" Oh Alabama The devil fools with the best laid plan. Swing low Alabama You got spare change You got to feel strange And now the moment is all that it meant. Alabama, you got the weight on your shoulders That's breaking your back. Your Cadillac has got a wheel in the ditch And a wheel on the track Oh Alabama Banjos playing through the broken glass Windows down in Alabama. See the old folks tied in white ropes Hear the banjo. Don't it take you down home? Alabama, you got the weight on your shoulders That's breaking your back. Your Cadillac has got a wheel in the ditch And a wheel on the track Oh Alabama. Can I see you and shake your hand. Make friends down in Alabama. I'm from a new land I come to you and see all this ruin What are you doing Alabama? You got the rest of the union to help you along What's going wrong?
  5. Next up, Bill Clinton!

    Jeezuss Jeffie - are you actually unable to recognize the difference between being a candidate and being elected? Let me put it in small words for you - winning a party primary is not "being elected". Winning the Senate seat in an election is being elected. If all this shit came out after he had been elected to the Senate then a higher burden of proof would be necessary (IMO). Being outed by numerous people in numerous (some documented) ways as a child molester while he is only a candidate for office is sufficient for him to quit the race or be dropped as the candidate - it the Alabama R's had any level of morality. Which they apparently don't.
  6. Trump Proposes The Use of Mini-Nukes in Warfare

    I was referring to the "books and educated" part of Mikes post. We used to have a very vivid illustration of the nuke ignorance you refer to right here. Many, even most Canadians were very holier than thou about "never having nukes on Canadian soil" back in the 60's & 70's when we actually had nuke tipped Genies at Comox (and elsewhere) when we flew F101's. It was kept pretty quiet but was an open secret. The peaceniks were so fuckin' clueless that they never knew about it - many, even most still don't. Greenpeace started in Vancouver while those nukes were 100 miles away in Comox - I don't recall them ever even mentioning them - Hunter, McTaggart et.al. probably didn't even know about them. We have always been a big player in the tech area of nukes and in supplying uranium. The proliferation that started with India getting Candu reactors is also our fault - "We promise, Scouts honor, that we will only use them for peaceful purposes".
  7. Next up, Bill Clinton!

    He hasn't been elected so he should resign from the race.
  8. Coolboats to admire

    Water world.
  9. Trump Proposes The Use of Mini-Nukes in Warfare

    That's the scariest thing about this current bunch - that a General named Mad Dog is the sane one we're all trusting to keep the moronic children from blowing up the world. MacArthur may have been right all along - war is too important to be left to the civilians..
  10. Trump Proposes The Use of Mini-Nukes in Warfare

    Lets not get carried away here.
  11. Trump Proposes The Use of Mini-Nukes in Warfare

    Assuming a Parliamentary majority, it gives you a 4 year dictatorship. The Parliamentary system depends on honour to a large extent - resigning in the face of scandal etc. We all know how likely that is these days.
  12. Trump: I Should Have Left UCLA Players in Jail.

    Christ he's a spoiled child. He doesn't even rise to the level of Man-Child - I've known 10 year olds with more maturity than this dipshit.
  13. Next up, Bill Clinton!

    If all we know about Clinton and what a dog he was (is) had come out prior to him being elected I think there would have been legitimate calls for him to drop out. Resigning from the job requires a higher burden of proof - a legal burden IMO
  14. Spectacular Accumulation of Lies

    I was always disappointed that Newt Gingrich never got caught with boys. He SO looked it.
  15. Next up, Bill Clinton!

    Been there, done that. Lots of T-Shirts.
