    2020 political thread

    We have decided there is enough interest in politics to start a thread devoted solely and exclusively to political discussion. I agree with those that objected to the discussion in the OT thread. It was becoming overwhelming. I take responsibility for my role, but realize I was not alone.

    All political commentary will be allowed here and confined to this space. After some thoughtful discussion Dayners and I believe this may be the most appropriate course to follow. Those that have no interest are not obligated to endure the commentary. Dayners and I will henceforth be deleting any and all future political comments in other threads. Please understand this is an attempt to satisfy everyone in the most fair and equitable manner.

    Don’t see the need for a second political thread when there is already one in the other forum . Politics don’t belong in a sports forum .

    Thank you for the feedback. Some people prefer to discuss things in a smaller more personal setting, with poster they tend "to know", more like discussing things at the dinner table or backyard BBQ than a conference room debate.

    Please feel free to ignore this thread.

    A thought to ponder:

    Rush Limbaugh was gifted the Medal of Freedom for being a racist, homophobic , misogynist, who was diagnosed with cancer.

    Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman is a Purple Heart recipient and a decorated war hero who was fired for telling the truth and respecting his oath.

    Thank you for the feedback. It will be taken under advisement. There are many opinions to consider.

    Dumber than the myriad of fantasy never happen in your lifetime "would ya" threads? Hmmmmm

    Trumpster going to bat for Pete Rose:

    Donald J. Trump@realDonaldTrump
    Pete Rose played Major League Baseball for 24 seasons, from 1963-1986, and had more hits, 4,256, than any other player (by a wide margin). He gambled, but only on his own team winning, and paid a decades long price. GET PETE ROSE INTO THE BASEBALL HALL OF FAME. It’s Time!

    You do realize That is a civilian award right ? Besides McCain was a decorated war hero but that didn’t make him a very good senator either . And trump only gave Limbaugh that award to piss off all the trump haters like yourself . And it worked too .

    Your point is that Limbaugh didn’t deserve that award because he is a “racist bigot”and Vindman didn’t deserve to get fired because he told the “truth”. My point is that trump only gave that award to Limbaugh to piss off his haters . And that just because Vindman was a war hero it didnt mean he was any good at his job that he was fired from. And from his superiors (not the White House) he didn’t even follow up with the proper chain of command when reporting trump , he went to some lawyers instead of his superiors which is against the proper protocol .

    This thread is very beneficial to the forum. Should bring out pure positivity in all.
