US Politics Cafe? What does that mean? Well, I email the GM Mod and asked if we could continue to have a place where we could discuss, amongst ourselves, the problems that crop up time to time here on the US Politics Forum. The previous post that was locked yesterday had sort of turned into this. And as a place where we could converse with each other without the pretense of hard left or hard right positions interfering with our communication and the good friends we have developed on both sides of the fence.

The GM thought this might be a good idea and approved it today.

So here we go. We have a place to try to work out angst, or just visit amongst ourselves and JOKE around with friends. The Cafe' is now open for us. We just need to keep everything here civil. Can I set your drinks up for you, Buddy? What will you have? Cheers!

LOL, actually that is the hood scoop to a Buccaneer Red 1974 Super Duty 455 Trans Am. I owned one many years ago. It would pass anything but a gas station. There were only 1243 ever made in '73 and '74. It was quite a car.

You know, I am just about sure, that, if we let them have it for a couple of days, to take it over and talk amongst themselves they would get pretty bored, very quickly.

If we just post here for two days, I wonder how quick they would change?

"I see one of the cons is calling for an assault on liberal topics trying to keep them off the front page. "

Since the preponderance of new topics are started by 3 or 4 cons, this doesn't seem too surprising to me.

I think it is just frustration of their position failing across the nation. I mean what diff does it make here? Only about 80 posters, so whay? Is that all they can do to whine and cry? All it shows is a growing respect for the liberal position, if that is the only way they have to fight it.

Good Morning!

Enjoy your day.

LOL, actually, it can be done and has been done in the past by partisans on both sides...but all that ended up happening, is that most people simply out the flooder on ignore to put the first page back to normal.

But you're right, it's silly and very childish to even try and do.

Oh so the Constitution is all wrong? MM, you should qualify that they are wrong in you opinion on their view of religion. No offense meant but there are still many who would disagree with you.

Ben Bradley has died. He knew what journalism really was about. Too bad we do not have any like him today.

Enjoy your day.

Tru2, many believe in the morality of the Bible now and then. It is a good source for morals. But Washington and Jefferson were Deists. Jefferson spoke many times against organized religion.

I have no idea how I did this. I was just trying to correct "Bill" to Ben. I was watching an interview with Bill O'reilly by Matt Lauer and I made the mistake.

Good morning good posters!

What's all this trash all over the place? What in the world happened here last night? Looks like there was an outburst of sleazy politics in our distinctively non-political place...

What a mess.

Just look at this garbage strewn all about.

Hopefully whomever mucked it up will clean it up and we can get back to the refuge this place is supposed to be.

btc1: I don't know if you are familiar with David Barton but he is an expert on the Constitution and the founders of this country and the men who created those documents. Many parts of our government can be traced to passages in the Bible. Most of what is being taught in the primary/secondary schools today and for quite a while is incorrect. Many of these founders were strongly religious and that bore a major factor in the development of the Constitution and other documents. Even Franklin and Jefferson (agnostics) leaned heavily on Judea/Christian principles.

Well my Facebook is linked to MY tax office page. It is a normal business practice to do so. That could be the way the number was retrieved, but, so what? I own it with my partner and we are still getting a chuckle out of that childishness. It just would not be good if that happened to anyone else. As some conservatives seem to have bragged it has. People, at least 2, have lost their jobs over actions like that, they say. It would seem they are correct. So you all be careful and learn from this.

"I have not been stalked on Facebook"

Stalkers can use information gleaned from Facebook to stalk by other means. A single photo posted on Facebook COULD contain your house, family, car and even license plate number.

Heck, even some GasBuddy albums contain that kind of information.

I have not been stalked on Facebook, SE. ofthat I am aware . I may have been "stealth trolled" on Twitter, however. I know of a connection there back to here. If I was, maybe someone could let me know. ;-)
