Did anybody think there was even a tiny chance the political thread would end well ?

It's a bit like somebody's definition of insanity. Repeat something over and over and expect a different outcome than the other 2000 times you did it.

    My expectations were fully met. No better, no worse.

    I used to have a guy I knew that wasn’t a very good person. He would do s.tupid things that usually resulted in him getting hurt. At times it was fun to sit back and watch the results....

    this is kind of like that...

    Free speech is bad - Free stuff is good.

    If there’s one thing I love more than anything else, it’s dealing in absolutes

    Sorry I missed it.  Doesn’t look like it broke any rules and  It also doesn’t look like there were any fights.   Did the mods decided to close another thread simply because they didn’t like the message???  Asking for a friend.  

    Someone should explain to @yaledawg the reason the debt went down during Obama’a 2nd term iwas because of the Republican sequester.    Not happy about the spending during this administration either, but a budget to reduce spending has been introduced by Trump and announced as DOA by the Dems, who are happy to spend $5 billion this year alone taking care of the illegals being detained at the border, but won’t spend $5 billion on a wall to reduce illegal crossings FOREVER.  The wall would pay for itself in one year if it is just 10% effective.  The debt isn’t because of his tax cuts.  The treasury just broke the alltime record for receipts.

    I'm all for free speech, not that it's truly free but it beats any alternative I know of. Still, if you go down that road in the political climate we have today it's going to get **** sooner or later, usually sooner.

    My view is that while I possess reasoned and long held political beliefs, I compartmentalize my interests. Meaning that I come here primarily for football followed closely for grilling recipes and bourbon recommendations.

    Reasonable people can agree to disagree so even if you're a commie, freedom-hating degenerate, we can still be friends. 😉

    Raider. how is this a political thread ? No political point of view is being discussed.

  • KaseyKasey mod Posts: 10,863 mod
    @tfk_fanboy I’m with you. Generally it’s not a discussion and generally no one changes their minds. 

    Sometimes I do enjoy the arguing though in a schadenfreude sort of way

    For some reason I can't edit my post above. I'll add I am on a cooking forum and the members have pretty much agreed no politics (the site has no mods) and it runs very well. A lot fewer issues and arguing

  • WCDawgWCDawg ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate Posts: 17,120 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    fanboy. I know I can't discuss politics anymore because somebody will always throw in a personal insult and anybody who has posted here for more than a few days knows how I get triggered easily. I don't think most things were better in the past, but it's true that you could usually discuss things without it turning into a pack of monkeys throwing crap at each other.
