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.

    They are walking back Trump's attempt to make it look as if he is doing something new. Too bad that people buy his bullshit.

    Come back when the Orange Monkey actually meets with Un. (I won't hold my breath)
    Yeah? When was the last time N Korea's leader meet with a sitting US President?

    I believe that is something new, and something no other president could accomplish. And IF a denucularized N Korea is a result, then you can kiss his ass

    • Haha. Jesus. You are making my point

      He hasn't. Because it has been policy not to sit with them unless there were "concrete concessions", the same as The Orange Monkey's staff is saying is true today.

      And unless there are "concrete concessions" The Orange Monkey won't meet with him.

      Nothing has fucking changed.

      Should I type slower for you.

        You are not intelligent.

        N Korea came to us desperate for a meeting. Offered to stop rocket and nuke tests

        We said ok, lets figure out when and where. We will meet if you keep your word and halt rocket and nuke tests.



        CGVT: "because Trump is requiring N Korea to keep their word before meeting, that means hes walking back that he is willing to meet with N Korea as long as they do what they said they would "


        You see how fucking stupid that sounds?

        • But less than 24 hours later, the White House appeared to hedge somewhat and call into question whether the meeting would ever come to fruition. Sanders appeared to add the condition that North Korea take tangible steps toward denuclearization before any meeting takes place. Last year, North Korea successfully tested its intercontinental ballistic missiles.

          Nothing has changed. Nothing.

          Well, other than The Orange Monkey running his mouth and his staff having to cover for him.
          Oh, wait. That's right. Nothing has changed. *sigh*

          Jesus. Your blind support has you grasping at straws.

          Winning!

            The problem with that language is the number of varied positions it can conceivably defend or mask. "Let's see some evidence" could mean what GWB meant about climate change, as in "lets ignore it unless forced to do otherwise", or it could mean "I got funding to study mercury in vaccines so I can shut up those anti-vaxxer people for good'' or it could mean "I can read like anyone else about the Ukraine plank of the GOP platform or Don Jr.'s response to emails, or about a few other things here, and I can connect some very obvious dots otherwise, but I choose not to."

            Bottom line -- Russia is not a collusion story that ends in impeachment. It's one chapter in a wider a corruption story in which collusion is just a part and impeachment is not the final chapter. The correct approach to this is to note that either America can take its medicine now, or wait until it becomes sicker.

            • hahaaaa, you're a joke.

              And yet they are working on setting up a date, time and location as we speak
              When the meeting happens, what will you be bitching about then? The fuck will you be crying about then? You need to get that derangement disorder checked out.

                  You are against that meeting because it might become a foreign policy win for Trump, and that might help him win another term. That, in turn, would limit the free shit you progs are able to suck off the tit of the federal government (read: the American taxpayers). There is no downside to a meeting with the NoKos, but you guys understand that a Trump win might cost you some largesse, and so you oppose the May meeting, but never give an example of how it might hurt the US. Your greed and your desire to take from the productive members of society is disgusting.

                  • The most important thing is to find something and someone which generate disgust which you can then vent on the forum here.

                    The reality is that the US is getting played on the diplomatic stage, but either way these are the same objections the GOP had when the Obama Administration reached out to Iran. If you don't like it now, shouldn't have done it then.

                      Exactlyg

                      It is a lot like when Clinton was getting abused by Castro in the 90s.

                        • Good stuff from Sessions on nationwide injunctions: https://www.nationalreview.com/2018/...enforcing-law/

                          Had some great meetings around the state this week including with the Great Lakes Hyperloop Consortium. Fascinating shit. Would share more but this board seems generally hostile to entrepreneurship (except Geezer!) and the shit America dominates at. But, I'll say it -- GO USA!

                          Back to the NK-US negotiations that will amount to nothing.
