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.

      There's no way I could possibly hate you any less than I do. Dead. Alive. Dancing the cha-cha in an Ohio State jersey. You're emblematic of human fallibility and failure. Our folly's reminder complete and entire.

        Right. First, the tariffs and what have you are largely balanced. So, it's not like there's an egregious across-the-board imbalance. Second, if, by some improbable miracle, he actually got a "no tariffs" agreement that would (a) not have much of an actual effect (see point 1); but (b) be a huge political win. Third, I don't think he likes Merkel (for good cause) and he's not particularly inclined to any shit from Merkel's little Punjab cock-holster. I sort of like that, too.
        Somehow missed your reply. Forget the balance or imbalance between nations. A removal of tariffs would help consumers.

            Global avg tariffs has fallen 15% in the past 20 years, so it's not a theoretical. IMO it depends on what other policies are put in place to protect consumers from the negatives.

                I thought Trump had this all figured out, the meeting was planned in advance of announcements of it. It was going to happen.

                The NKs have once again repeated their similar tap dance, offering up tasty morsels of concessions and then pulling the rug out from under the West's feet.

                At least DJT got out in front of this and cancelled it like a jilted wife sues for Divorce before the husband can.

                Played like a fiddle.

                we get our hostages, they lose their test site, sanctions are still in place. they gave up everything they had minus their nukes, we gave up nothing and will continue to squeeze the life out of their economy.

                obviously we want the meeting, we want them to give up their nukes. we don't want to be in the position 0bama was with Iran, and agree to a garbage deal.

                The impact on South Korea will be interesting. Moon has spent months kissing Trump's ass and they claim today that they didn't even get a heads up about this.

                What a fucking petty dumbass child.

                If it was irrelevant, why say anything about it?

                            I am starting to think that it's not just that they don't understand him, but think they do, it's that they have no desire to tell themselves the truth. It's more than just bias, or cogitative dissonance, it's willful ignorance.

                            • Bizzare. I hope he is punished lightly. He was an Air Force officer sent to Amsterdam to work with NATO. He was not trying to avoid a war or some bad assignment in some third-world hellhole. He states he was depressed - he gave up his family and his career, hid, assumed a new identity and was trapped by that.
                              Capt. William Howard Hughes, Jr., who was living under the nameBarry O'Beirne, admitted his true identity after becoming the subject of a passport fraud investigation. He said he was depressed in 1983, and ran away from the Air Force.

                              • To be clear tho, I am against lower tariffs. I am for an orderly boost to them. Free trade hasn't gone according to the original theory of competitive advantage. Tax policy distorts it.
