FORUM POSTING RULES - Read before posting

Forum Rules.

(1) The guiding principle for posting in this forum is moderate yourselves.

(2) Don't write a post that attacks, impugns or denigrates another poster's character. There's an obvious difference between the language of humor and hateful, debased language. Know the difference and post accordingly.

(3) This is a Michigan sports forum. The forum welcomes posts from M's sports rivals. Talking smack, posting sass is what college sports rivalries are all about. Rules (1) and (2) above apply. If you don't want to view the posts of a rival talking smack or sassing, use the ignore feature in User Controls.

(4) This forum is about sharing thoughts, ideas and viewpoints about all sports, any number of subjects and issues, learning stuff from other posters and having fun. There are threads by subject matter within the forum for doing this. Keep the threads on point.

NB: The rules above are not intended to build a case to ban a poster. There are consequences for rule breaking as specified below. That's as far as it should go. Only the most egregious and persistent rule breaking would cause the moderators to consider a ban.

Due Process.

(1) The forum has 6 moderators. Jeff Buchanan, Jon, JD, Hannibal, Oracle, Entropy. None of them want to moderate adult posters who should know better. There may be posts that break the rules.

(2) Posters who, at the sole discretion of a moderator, break a rule will be given a warning post that will site one of the rules listed above as the reason for the deletion.

(3) If the rule breaking behavior continues, a moderator can remove an offending post and any ensuing post that whines about that action. If a moderator removes a post(s) the reason for the removal(s) will be posted with the removal notice that appears in the thread. This should be the end of it. Man up, take responsibility for breaking the rules. The forum moves on. If not, see below.

(4) A poster who has had a warning or a post(s) removed can certify a question by PM to any moderator about that action. Do not complain about the action or attempt to make your case in the forum/threads. Moderators shall do their best to address the question within 72h. At the end of 72h the majority opinion of the moderators responding will be the answer.

(5) Banning a poster for egregious and repeated rule breaking requires a unanimous vote to ban from all 6 moderators. We don't anticipate this will ever happen.

            His feelings describe, I feel, a significant portion of the Trump core base.

            Policy is largely irrelevant. Whatever Trump supports, they'll support. They just want to WIN and do whatever makes liberals cry. That's their primary motivation. This doesn't represent a majority of Trump voters but enough to swing elections.

                Quickest way to get Trump to do something is to say Obama was against it.

If you're planning huge tax cuts for corporations and upper-income tax brackets, and the President isn't eager to touch entitlements, you gotta find the money somewhere else.

                    you are not wrong about probably 30%

                    You are wrong about me though.


                    I don't agree with 100% of what Trump says, I don't support everything. I don't support his comments about the firing of players that don't stand for the anthem for example. I wouldn't appreciate it if 0bama commented the private companies employment practices and encouraged a boycott of, say, Chick Fil A. I don't think it is any business of the president to comment on such matters.

                    I am a conservative, and prior to Halloween last year I was certain I wasn't going to vote for Trump. But then I remembered my outright hatred for the democrats. If we can't unite around a president Trump, for sure one thing that binds half the country together is the hatred of the Progressives that want to fundamentally change what this country is, and which look upon us as the enemy, and hate us far more.

                    The question is how does that help the country, but I find it odd coming from the side that supported the woman that called half of Americans deplorable, racist, sexist, bigots, homophobes, and islamaphobes. The right didn't start this war, we just decided to start fighting back.

                              • Well let's talk history. There have been people bitching about how 'progs' (the currently popular slur) have been ruining America and changing its 'fundamental character' since at least the 1950's. For some it goes back to the Civil War. The Jacksonian Era massively changed America as well. So right off the bat, the idea that America had static, fixed values up until maybe the 60's or 80's is wrong, if anyone believes that. Some people here act like Saul Alinsky invented cynical politics and that the Black Panthers invented the concept of racial identity.

                                Industrialization changed and affected American values. Immigration changed and affected American values. Religious revivalism changed and affected American values. Urbanization changed and affected American values. The discovery of evolution and genetics changed and affected American values. Computers changed and affected American values. Any of these changes is more significant than the proliferation of the phrase "happy holidays".

                                In the 1790 Census, only 5% of Americans lived in cities or urban areas. In 1900 it was about 40%. Today it is over 80%. People who live in cities or the suburbs tend to have different expectations from government than people who live in rural areas. Jefferson's vision for America, of self-sufficient, educated farmers enjoying their own small fiefdoms, was a dying concept even in 1800.

                                A lot of people don't like change, good OR bad changes. Those people tend to be conservative and have bounced between political parties over time.
