      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.

David Frum Understands The Problem With The Liar Trump

4 posts in this topic

Trump’s lying about the popular vote has dangerous real-world consequences


1) Trump, a textbook case of Narcissistic Personality Disorder, will believe the lies he tells, after he tells them http://samvak.tripod.com/journal75.html


2) Meaning that Trump will live among ego-salving fantasies - a dangerous location for a president of the United States


3) Worse, Trump will surround himself by people who repeat his lies back to him: either a) abject creatives or B) sinister manipulators


4) Worse still: because the conservative media amplify Trump’s lies, the whole conservative world will lose touch with reality


5) Encouraging true believers - and compelling even pragmatists - to act en masse as if the lies were truth.


6) Among other negative consequences, this will encourage reckless political risk-taking by Republicans in Congress


7) It remains true that Republican candidates for president have won the national popular vote only once since 1988: 1 in 7 elections!


8) The party’s agenda is not popular in real-life. That would seem to suggest … caution.


9) Instead, it seems congressional Republicans are about to plunge ahead as if the country were clamoring for their program.

10) Some congressional Republicans surely know this not to be true. They dare not act on that knowledge


11) In 1965, 1981, 2009, new presidents changed national direction with clear democratic consent.


12) 2017 bids to be as activist as those prior years - but without the clear consent. How will that end? Not well, I fear.


BTW if you haven’t yet familiarized yourself with the symptoms of Narcissistic Personality Disorder, you should http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/narcissistic-personality-disorder/basics/definition/con-20025568

Way too long for kakistocracy members to sit still and read.

 

You used too many big words whose meanings they don't understand.

 

Some of your statements questioned Gropenfuhrer. Obviously you do not understand his his faithful worship.

January 20th, 2017. The date that the plundering begins. The only question is what form it may take:

 

Kakistocracy? Plutocracy? Oligarchy?

 

It doesn't actually matter. The organized despoilation of our national treasure, our environment and our working people will begin.

Rich guys rig the system even more to their favor. The middle class gets an economic ass kicking. To the lunatic conservatives that's comforting because they grew up getting their ass kicked -- by daddy.
