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!

"I hear that some online university will give you that PHD for a credit card payment of only three easy installments of $199, lol."

"Here is a little game for those on the right. It is very easy. It must be funded by Fox News. Everyone is getting ranked as PHD....;-)"

Why the right? You must have played it first, since you are introducing us to it. Why Fox? I would think it just as likely to have been funded by NBC (Nonsense Before Commonsense). {:>)

Your link, playbuzz, describes itself as "an easy-to-use, multi-lingual, socially optimized platform that allows publishers, bloggers, brands and users to create their own Playful Content".

Good Morning!

I know Lexington is not Boston, but, we have a target on our back too! The forecast is for 2-3" of rain followed by snow accumulation up to 10-12"!! Dang it!

Wonder if its too early to start planting. We could still have a freeze; but it hasn't happened yet this year. Probably get away with it. Certainly in two more weeks...

Good morning. March coming in like a lion. Seven inches of snow overnight and still falling. Ran the snow blower early, but will have to do it again in a couple of hours. Don't know if it has enough gas for another bout.

Well, at least it was not the chemical stress test, jay....that is all they will let me have now...;-) I hope you came away with flying colors!

Sorry I misread that SE. I had a shot of Caravidol early. And yes there are Left triangles too. A bit obtuse though for most...

Oh I have no problem with being left, out of triangles.

Unconstrained by such strict and rigid rules.

Tis the fancy left which is more freely able-

To color outside unimaginative lines.

And with that I bid you - a fine Friday, fine posters.
