      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.

Where is the Fox News - Petraus - Allies thread

Recommended Posts

Am I missing something? This is possibly one of the biggest stories of our day...a sitting general wined and dined by a media conglomerate and told to QUIT from the war he was in charge of and run against Obama...with the SUPPORT of the Network President?? Same networks makes their "expert" praise him as a setup to it?

 

Wow....

Looks like the Republicans missed out on their very own president who gets blow jobs in the oval office. But don't worry, I bet more will be along shortly.

Yep, now that Petraeus is no longer useful, he must be destroyed. The greatly increased body count as we are driven out of Afghanistan under Obama needs someone to blame.

Yep, RD, having the top dog of a large news network trying to subvert the US Government is EXACTLY the same as having one talking head who approves of a Pol.

 

You have to adjust your outrage meter. Which of these things is not like the other...was on Sesame Street. You seem to have missed that particular episode.

Our colleagues have raised some interesting and difficult questions about Congress’ authority to regulate electioneering by the press, and about how to define what constitutes the press.

I see no mention of regulation, only an appearance of impropriety.

 

There is more to that opinion than the one sentence. I have read it and can summarize for those who do not: The need for regulation is justified by... wait for it... impropriety AND the appearance of same.

Where exactly is that in the Washington Post article or this thread? I have read both and can answer that for those with difficulties relating to subjects outside their OCD: it isn't.

 

Definitely another Favre moment :rolleyes:

Guns, Bent, Guns!

The logic is clear. Fox and their allies are pro-2nd Amendment remedies and Obama is not. Therefore.......all this BS about Fox trying to create and own the government is just.....BS.

The theory that FOX is the mouth piece of the Republican party and the one that says the opposite is true both have supporting evidence.

 

Likely both are somewhat true.
