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.

    Perfect!

    You know, it comes to mind that these people are well educated and experienced in the political ring. But, damn, I don't think I have ever witnessed the kind of political ineptness from the Ds this term that should make it easy for the Rs ..... like shooting fish in a barrel so to speak.

    The problem is that the other side of the isle is just about as politically stupid and that says volumes about the current state of political affairs in America.

    • Sure, it's like watching an Illinois-Purdue game. Right now the game is to appeal to the base. I mean really, really, really appeal to the base. The problem with the Ds, though, is that they can't just win on the coasts. They have to venture inward. The Rs don't have to win on the coasts, well, non-SEC coasts.

      • Remarkably coherent it its absolute incorrectness. LMFAO.

        TBF, there are some threads in that piece that, nearly a decade down the road are probably accurate. Conservatism has been somewhat reshaped ostensibly to appeal to a wider R base (IMO, not in a good way) ...... until DJT, philosophically anyway, yanked American conservatism back onto the right track. And this is not an endorsement of the public face of that orange haired buffoon but his policies matter (I think I heard that somewhere here)

        As an aside, I read an interesting piece today about economic policy (presumably emanating from this administration) in and inflationary environment. Tax cuts, tariffs and fiscal policy are all inflationary in what is thought to be an expanding economy by all measures of it - stoking the economic fire when policy moderation might be a better approach. Inflation and the Fed's potentially over-reaction to it (rapid rise in interest rates), makes borrowing costs higher potentially strangling profits, creating a stock market drive and triggering a recession I'll have to sniff out some of the President's economic advisers on this bit of nitpicking.

        • drove into downtown Topeka Saturday

          one guy with a sign that said reelect trump--SAD otherwise no signs of protestors

          the expo center where trump spoke satrurday was packed. the parking lots were as full as ive ever seen it

          they covered the speech locally and of course on fox--I think msnbc was running reruns of cornhuskers in prison and cnn flipped to parts unkown as soon as the protestors went home from the supreme court

          anyway it was pouring don rain all weekend but those people lined up 4 hours in advance to get inside that expocenter

          I watched Kansas and boston in there and saw my grandson graduate all three times we parked in the parking lot. I never saw parking in the grass and beyond the parking lots like Saturday night.

          kobach and Watkins both spoke and both hit home

          trump sp[oke and was on point hammering home point after point --only a few exaggerations I could see

          point is I think the base is fired up and I think the whole kavanugh think pissed off a lot of voters. see what happens but I think the seante is 53-47 after November and the house loses only a few

          • What about Europe or Asia? It's hard to believe there'd be many of them, but how about at least one Foreigner?

                          I think she will make a run for president in the future. She was a really good Ambassador.

                            • A 2020 Trump/Haley ticket would have gravitas ...... at least the Haley part...... and, at the same, neutralize the impact the #metoo movement a bit.

                              Sets up a 2024 run for Haley nicely too.
