      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.

  6. Lets Make A Deal - Monty Hall DTS

    Was having a conversation with a politico about what the US Founding Fathers would think of the US if they could time travel to today.... He asked "What would they think of what we have done to the Constitution ?"... My reply: "Screw the Constitution, what would they think of Game Shows ?" From the lyrical genius of Steve Goodman (with some help from Jimmy Buffett): Oh I took a wrong turn, it was the right turn My turn to have me a ball Boys at the shop told me just where to stop If I wanted to play for it all I didn't know I'd find her on daytime TV My whole world lies waiting behind door number three I chose my apparel, wore a beer barrel And they rolled me to the very first row I held a big sign that said "Kiss me I'm a baker, and Monty I sure need the dough!" Then I grabbed that sucker by the throat Until he called on me Cause my whole world lies waiting behind door number three And I don't want what Jay's got on his table Or the box Carol Merrill points to on the floor No, I'll hold out just as long as I am able Until I can unlock that lucky door Well, she's no big deal to most folks But she's everything to me Cause my whole world lies waiting behind door number three Oh Monty, Monty, Monty, I am walking down your hall God be, I lost my seat but I'm not a man to crawl No I didn't get rich you son of a bitch I'll be back just wait and see Cause my whole world lies waiting behind door number three Yes my whole world lies waiting behind door number three

    Saw "Jackie" the other night, definitely worth a watch for a personal viewpoint of the JFK assassination. Initially I wasn't thrilled with Portman's portrayal, but Jackie was a person with drastically different personas (public vs private) and by the end of the movie Portman's acting fell into place. An interesting contrast between the "Camelot" Kennedy-mystique of the 60s and her "strained" relationship with JFK. I was born in Mass in the early 60s, and remember my father playing the LP of the musical "Camelot" (it's played a few times during the film). Brought back some memories.... Wasn't crazy about the moody soundtrack, but it's desired effect was understood.

    Communism is an economic model where the government owns the means of production... and the Lenin/Marxist implementation of Communism calls for individuals to be expendable for the economy. Hence if you are of a class or group determined to be a detriment, your elimination may be beneficial to the collective (this allows for purges or sending dissidents to "re-education camps"). The political class ruling over a Communist economy can theoretically be democratic, republic, monarchy, etc.... While the US and other western governments have their drastic shortcomings, they were based on inalienable individual rights (such as private property in a Capitalist economy) which the government cannot take away.... though you know many of our leaders certainly try.
