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!

Good recovery, mini!

Hey, I have another side bet for you mini. How about we bury our hatchets for the New Year? At least until the UK vs Louisville game......

Or until Rand Paul tries to run for two offices at once! 0;-)

"they grow up to play for UK!!! Just so you know as a side note, The KY Fish and Wildlife just killed a big cat, just a few miles north of me!"

I hope that wasn't Alex Poythress... heck it was just a left knee ligament that put him out for the season.

I can't believe btc1 and I are on the same side of something. Well, I always side for Kentucky, as long as they're not playing my Alma Mater - the University of Louisville Fighting Cardinals.

Jay, I have an alternative. After the Bruins lose on Saturday, if you can't stand the thought of wearing UK Blue wildcat, you could honor ex-UCLA coach Crum and wear a red Louisville Cardinal, instead. I'm sure btc1 wouldn't mind. ;-P

Just kidding. A week after your Bruins get an ass whuppin', my Cardinals are going to have to dual with the kitty cats also.

I'm STILL critical of the mods.

They engage in selective moderation, putting walls up that were never requested, and telling you that threads have been removed when in fact said threads are alive and well and being posted to daily. Not to mention that they completely ignore banned posters returning over and over and over and do nothing about posters who post other's personal information.

I have sometimes been critical of the mods, so I must now be fair and give them kudos. As I was browsing the forums this morning, I noticed that one of my posts from a couple of days ago inadvertently contained personal information. I contacted the mods and asked them to remove the post. It was removed within the hour.

There's no place like home! (Especially when gas has gone down $0.20 while we were gone)....

Hmmm...maybe I should leave again to get it down under $2.00???
