      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.

Mnuchkin views total eclipse

  It may come a surprise to some, but it is a truism that ultimate well-spring of greed isn't money, it's the thrill one gets from garnering things. Those afflicted find it difficult to resist any chance to fleece a mark, even if they have more money in their back pocket than God already...

The U.S. Treasury’s Office of Inspector General is reviewing the flight taken by Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and his wife, Louise Linton, last week to Louisville and Fort Knox, Ky., following criticism of their use of a government plane on a trip that involved viewing the solar eclipse.

“We are reviewing the circumstances of the Secretary’s August 21 flight . . . to determine whether all applicable travel, ethics, and appropriation laws and policies were observed,” counsel Rich Delmar wrote in a statement to The Washington Post late Thursday.

“When our review is complete, we will advise the appropriate officials, in accordance with the Inspector General Act and established procedures,” Delmar added.

 

   The thrill of getting a "free ride" can be irresistible even for billionaires. At his level of wealth personal Gulfstreams are the norm..and most definitely chartering them is. Yet the chance to use taxpayer money brings an added "thrill", and would impressed that wife of his all the more, "power" is the ultimate aphrodisiac, and by the looks of things she can use all she can get. She's been gaining fame on the late-night comedy shows for her incredible hubris. I suppose their marriage is a meeting of true soul-mates.

I'll bet she has one hell of a hubris.

So, this was kind of similar to the time Obama took Michelle to New York on a G650?

It's certainly how the rich get richer and the poor stay poor.

It always amazes me the incredible generosity of those who don't have much compared to the relative stinginess of the wealthy.

you know..like some one on $30 grand or less will happily stuff five- ten bucks into a collection tin..yet someone on five times the income   gives the same or maybe double.

It wouldn't surprise me if he was, but it is more likely he's tapping Mnuchin's wife.

The one thing that we know for sure is that sexual deviancy in people doesn't change. They may tell you they have changed, They may act like they have changed, but they just get sneakier, you know, like Bill Clinton.
