    Wise man that Herschel.

    Mods. Please lock or delete this thread. I'd rather not comment other than that.

  • dawgnmsdawgnms Posts: 1,683 mod

    Then don't comment. Give it a chance to stay civil or die on its own merits, gets outta hand then well ya know

    dawgnms. This thread is against rules, you should know that. The only way this will stay civil is if one side's views dominate, we've seen that before. How many times have I expressed views in threads that were politically unpopular here ? how did those threads evolve ?

  • dawgnmsdawgnms Posts: 1,683 mod

    Show me the rule please. So your view is the only one that counts as you want it closed/deleted. What part of do not comment did you not understand

    So one sided politics are ok, only descension gets a thread closed...got it. Let's pretend this isn't a hot button issue where barbed insults almost always occur when debated.

    See you just cannot refrain from posting in it. HW voiced his opinion and it made the news....so what....like I said it gets outta hand it will get shut down......now if another Mod wants to close it up that is fine by be but I ain't gonna do it so save your breath

    California already has the highest top end income tax rate at 13.3% with most residents paying in the range of 9.3-10.3%. I don't live there so it's not my place to say they're right or wrong but I have to wonder that without the tourism economy and all the tech industry propping up the state, how incentivized are people going to be to keep living there when you lump another tax on top of them?

    You put this same policy into effect in say, Nebraska and that dog aint gonna hunt.

    No political rants is the rule. This thread hasn't broken that rule yet and it's the general section. We all know this thread won't end with civil discourse though. Just seems like a bad idea
  • WCDawgWCDawg Posts: 13,784 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    Yale. You and I have been involved in several discussions from opposite perspectives that went south in a hurry. This is a bad idea and in my opinion Mods give the OP's opinion tacit approval by allowing the thread to stay open.

  • YaleDawgYaleDawg Posts: 1,297 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

  • YaleDawgYaleDawg Posts: 1,297 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate
    Yeah I agree WC, but might as well give it a chance at this point.
  • WCDawgWCDawg Posts: 13,784 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    You all enjoy your completely one sided discussion.

  • dawgnmsdawgnms Posts: 1,683 mod

    See you cannot help yourself, you just have to continue until you get your way. It was not the OP's opinion he was posting a news item about HW's opinion and the OP made NO COMMENT one way or the other.

    Just an FYI, this is @JeffSentell 's rule regarding this:


    - Use common sense and respect personal differences in the community: sexual and other inappropriate language or imagery, political rants and belittling the opinions of others will get your posts deleted and result in warnings and/ or banning from the forum



    Violate any of this and the Mods will do their thing.

  • FirePlugDawgFirePlugDawg Posts: 3,708 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    Someone explain why you/they want to **** up this forum by having political topics here. What is gained by that? How does that help the UGA community? And who cares what Herschel thinks about anything other than football?

  • bobbybobby Posts: 99 ✭✭✭ Junior

    Herschel sounds like my grandmother. Poor guy.
