It's that time again... Election Year!  I know that emotions run high every four years and with the whole Corona thing, a lot of us are crankier and a bit crazier than usual.  So in light of that, please dial back the rhetoric a bit in this area of the forum.  You have a lot of freedom to express yourself here, but we can't tolerate personal attacks, anything that can be interpreted as a threat, and any kind of racism.  Present an opinion and be prepared to defend it with fact or logic.  Have a civil discussion and everything will be fine.  I won't take time to untangle a mess.  If a topic goes too far down the wrong roads I'll just delete the whole thing.  Let's avoid throwing too many rocks at each other.  Remember the red and blue chicken houses both have their share of weasels in them.

Thanks for the reminder, Darin, I generally just attack user names, not real names, and I try to limit it to a funny nickname, only in this forum.  Good luck, keepin the chicks in line, and the weasels out.  Remember that the weasels generally show up, in months with an r in them!Wink

i agree with you all the way but having said that there is 2/3 people that for some reason always want to stir the pot. don't respond to them and see what happens. a good honest discussion is good for everyone and always has been for any opened minded person. there is always two sides to every story. for now it wont change. when have news papers, tv that is 98 percent against a sitting president and the sitting president pushes back just as hard then this is what you get. parents taught us not to lie and call people names so we all should remember a courteous discussion is the best discussion. Obamas wife who i didn't really care for made a statement once. they take the low road we take the hi road, i can honestly say to both party's your roads are impassible. stay safe people.

Thanks Darin,
I  applaud your effort to tamp down the vitriol. The ad hominem  attacks and palpable rudeness often destroys  any possibility of a productive exchange of actual ideas ...leaning toward finding solutions to the most pressing problems of our day. Perhaps, with your guidance, the participants of this forum will now expand beyond the usual suspects and result in dismantling the echo chamber that it has become. 
Good luck and stay safe
