      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.

Trump channels his inner Dog

Recommended Posts

Dog really needs some high-fives or maybe high-fours in his case.

Trump said on the news yesterday there is no reason for him to be questioned in relation to Russian meddling because no collusion has been proven.

:lol::lol:

Isn't that tactic a direct ripoff of The Dog Standard - no reason to investigate unless the crime is already proven. PA gets one up on the big scoreboard! :D

(we'll ignore the fact that "collusion" is not an exact legal term and nor is it all or only what is being investigated, this is a triumph of the Dog  ;) )

Thanks but credit goes to Sol, the standard is his invention.

AP FACT CHECK: Trump says collusion is disproved; it's not

"While speaking in defense of his mental capabilities, President Donald Trump said the question of collusion between his 2016 campaign and Russians is a dead issue, which it isn't. He also said the mandate to buy health insurance or pay a fine is gone — another premature death announcement.

Trump's series of tweets Saturday, as he lashed out at a new book questioning his smarts, took a scattershot approach to the facts, as did his words later to reporters at Camp David. All of this capped a week in which he took unearned credit for safe skies, exaggerated progress in advancing care for veterans and saw his EPA boast about completing pollution clean-ups that were carried out when Barack Obama was president.

 

A look at those statements and more:

TRUMP: "I guess the collusion now is dead because everyone found that, after a year of study, there's been absolutely no collusion. There has been no collusion between us and the Russians." — to reporters at Camp David

TRUMP tweet: "Now that Russian collusion, after one year of intense study, has proven to be a total hoax on the American public, the Democrats and their lapdogs, the Fake NewsMainstream Media, are taking out the old Ronald Reagan playbook and screaming mental stability and intelligence."

THE FACTS: Although he is free to deny that it happened, Trump has no standing to assert that collusion has been ruled out. The special counsel's investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election and Russian contacts with Trump's team is continuing and it's premature to say "everyone found" there was nothing.

The probe has not publicly established that Moscow and the Trump team colluded — or that they didn't. The same is true of other potential misdeeds, like obstruction of justice. Trump has often stated that even Democratic leaders have stated there was no collusion. In fact, they have only said that proof has not yet emerged."

Trump could ask Flynn if there were any "there" there, but I don't think they're allowed to speak directly to each other, for some reason.
