I have no clue about the quoting on this one so I'm just going to try and do my best...

So you agree with the media companies censoring things that are said. Here is where it starts where does it end who makes the decision as to what can be said
Ideally the individual in question would know the difference between lawful and unlawful speech and behave accordingly. However, it's abundantly clear that he does not have that level of intelligence or self-control and hence should be muzzled when he deliberately incites violence. If one of us said the sorts of thing he says publicly we'd likely find ourselves in front of a judge.
you are entitled to express your opinion that is until you get censored by some media outfit
We're not going to get muzzled because what we're expressing is lawful and benign. Look at the differences.

I know what you mean.... kind of like when I'm around conservative family... I know the feeling of being muzzled well.

Anyway... 226 post, 16 pages... all wasted time.

That piece on Irish slaves is incorrect on several occasions. In the 1600s, Britain didn’t exist as a country, so references to it are incorrect. That’s a simple thing to get right, so it doesn’t give me much faith in the rest of the article.

While it’s good to hear of such stories, they hardly remove the anger and perceived / real oppression that Blacks have experienced - and continue to experience - in many countries. Their story, while not the only one, is one that continues. Irishmen don’t tend to get killed by police. Well, not since Northern Ireland calmed down a bit.

Donald J. Trump
@realDonaldTrump
Corrupt Joe Biden and the Democrats don’t want to open schools in the Fall for political reasons, not for health reasons! They think it will help them in November. Wrong, the people get it!


Our nation needs to focus on a workable plan to return our children to schools this fall. It is imperative that we reach across party lines and work together to achieve this.

...fixed that for you. (...jerk)

Damn it all enough is enough. :x :x :evil:

We are here to talk about the wearing of skirts and kilts by men being men, We are not here to call one another out because of our beliefs or politics. This has gotten so far out of line it is time to shut it down. Lets keep politics and religion out of the conversations unless it directly concerns skirt wearing. When I say directly I don't mean what we think is going to happen but what is actually happening.

Moderators it is time to lock the thread. It has gotten to the point that people are ganging up on others here and that is not acceptable. We are all entitled to our opinions but we should not try to force them on everyone else. Political opinions as well as religious ones should be kept to one self at the Cafe. There are so many other places you can go on the Internet to argue them until you are blue in the face, but please not here.......

Thank You!

Fred, yes this is off-topic, but that is what it's labeled. Just don't read the off-topic threads. I appreciate seeing the varying opinions.

Lawful and benign in who's opinion

what differences

CR that has to be the most inane statement you have posted

If you give an inch the whole thing goes down the tubes. But if you honestly believe that it won't go any further enjoy your innocence .

Threads don't need to be locked all the time. It doesn't actually solve anything. I've not been active on here much because every time I turn around everyone gets their way and threads are locked.Turns me away from wanting to engage in the site afterwards.People need to not let themselves get so worked up over statements but be debatable in regards of knowing when to not push the other parties buttons persay.

I sometimes think that your discrimination laws are a mess. With such pronouncements you seem to be going backwards and all because of the views of one man. And the more I read about Trump the more I dislike him, his policies, attitudes and manner. He's dangerous and a throwback to the gun-toting, black hating, gay-hating neanderthal stereotype. If he gets voted back in then you, as a nation, truly will have the leader you deserve. I honestly feel sorry for those of you that actually have to live in America.

Sorry, just sayin'.
Trump has done more for blacks than Obarma ever did , they can work for a living ect.

Jenn is correct in this regard. What's missing is that if the moderators caved to every whinge about posts then positively nothing of any substance will get any attention. The decision to lock or not rests solely with the moderation staff, not the hands of random participants.

It's quite plain at this point that there are a small number who are so intransigent in their thinking that they are beyond reaching -- and if they are allowed to manipulate the moderation staff then the moderators will lose any and all respectability. Believe me, we strive to be neutral in this regard, precisely because we know what a "slippery slope" looks like, and what it feels like to be on one.

The above having been said, the "heated rhetoric" needs to stop in the name of simple decency. If we can stick to observable fact and some notion of the rules of debate then it's one thing. If it turns into a free-for-all with the child doing the most whinging getting his way more often than others then the purpose of the forum is lost and I may well decide to shut it down altogether or hand it back to Bob/Elizabeth who would likely do the same thing.

Your choice. Keep up the hot-button rhetoric and see what happens. I suspect nobody will be very happy with the result.

I'll stop.

It's y'alls forum. But here's the deal, I'm not going to subject my eyes to a bunch of Trump worshipping and far right rhetoric and be obliged to hold my tongue. That's a double standard and is just flat out unfair.

Fred, AL, you all have posted your share of right wing politics on this site. Who's muzzeling who here? You wanna poke a hornets nest with a stick then don't fuss when you get stung. I'll even give oldsalt credit, he doesn't usually start the threads...

So that's it... I'll walk away from this thread, and leave discussion of current events alone. If this site turns into some right wing b.s. propaganda hole... then I'm gone.

So what's it gonna be?

Skirt cafe... I'll stick around

Trump-cafe... I'm done.

I'm with you on this and stand by all statements as well. Why I fixed my Facebook account so others can't see my post and I can't see theirs because am sick of all the bs that I gotta see but they don't want to see anything we post unless its about Trump.

First off nobody told you to hold your tongue The muzzeling I was talking about was the media censoring Trunp

I am not trying to turn anything into a right wing ……….. with the exception of the recent comment by Knickson if anything this blog has been a left leaning anti Trump blog at probably about 6 to 1 ratio

And your complaining that it is becoming a right wing propaganda hole.

I don't mind the back and forth using facts but I can not stand to see either side trying to push their agenda by saying the other side is is full of sh!t with out concrete facts. Some are name calling while trying not to name names but manage to do so any way.

Moon and Jenn you guys are my friends and I don't care what your politics are or your religious beliefs are you still are my friends and will remain so. I do not care if you are purple with orange pokadots and believe that the earth rides on the back of a fish. My friendship is not based on any such things. But on my interaction with you.

Moderators I know what it is like to **** at the helm of a forum such as this, I have done it and have had the head aches and such. This is your forum to run as you see fit.

Alright, well I guess everyone's cool then.

I am however going to take a little break from society for a while.

With respect, I'll ask you all to understand, I've probably got at least 30 to 50 years left on this rock, and that future is being decided by people who probably won't be around in a decade.

Between the selfishness of the boomers and the apathy of gen z... I can't help but feel like I'm screwed.

I can't just sit and watch my future go up in flames, and since my words seem to be the source of much angst, I shall endeavor to put it out of my head.

I hope you all know what you're doing... it's too bad you won't be around to witness the fruits of what is being sowed today... I will be... for better or worse, I'll have to abide in the decisions that you all make.

I predict when I'm 64, they'll finally vote to abolish all socialism in this nation... right before social security/Medicare age...

Such is the luck of the millennial. :|

Have fun guys... I'm goin' home for a while.
