    Re: We need a new name

    Your rules your forum but I must say they donít fit todayís political climate. Politics turned into a dog eat dog nightmare and itís no accident. There are big big problems facing this country and they must be treated with firm resolve and a strong spine. When the left side of the isle controlled this forum there was no mercy given to the opposition, none... I have the first amendment right to state my opinion without censorship and reprisal. Iím sure you would agree with that... Thanks...

    Re: We need a new name

    So you are saying that because today's politics are so polarised, we should polarise them more? And I'm always worried when someone suggests that what is needed is "firm resolve and a strong spine". Because that is usually followed by a suggestion of some form of authoritarianism. When people in public office use words like that they are generally working towards "the ends justify the means" - which is generally a good definition of a fanatic. What exactly DO you think is needed? Because if your plan is to stop the polarisation of politics then forcing things on people is seldom a good way to start.

    Also, going briefly back to the topic at hand, I think "The Crucible" is the best suggestion so far. Anyone any serious objections?

    No. He's saying the reason politics are so polarized today is because leftists have made it that way. The push back you're now getting from the right is only the beginning. Keep sanitizing speech and it's just going to make it worse. But fascists never listen, they always believe they are right as they continue to place more and more restrictions on what speech they consider "acceptable."

    We are now at the point where leftists have pushed to remove terms like "manhole" and "chairman" from every day speech. We've also gotten to the point where parents are being forced to let their children decide what sex they are because of the pro-freak propaganda being pushed on them daily. I don't listen to leftists and have ZERO respect for them. I see them as the enemy they are and no longer have any desire to "debate" them. They are peddlers of doublespeak and continue to push to end civilization in their words and actions.

    The question you must ask yourself is why do you defend this behavior.

    Mirror, mirror, on the wall, l see a new rule is in the hall. . Something about stay on topic or ya get the boot.

    You may not see it, but you've described what's happening here now. And that's OK. That you're acting as "others" are authoritarian is a laugher.

    TLR hasn't been moderated since 2016 (except for spammers)... that's been clear to everyone that visits here regularly. That it took this long for the powers that be to notice speaks volumes. It takes at least two people of opposing political persuasion to handle this thing properly.

    Good luck with it. I predict it'll be a liberal circle jerk in no time. And that this post will be deleted.

    While technically it is off topic, it is at least reasonably thought out. I' may move it to a new thread later, so it becomes the topic.

    I was led to believe "Me Too" or "I Agree" posts were verboten as they "add nothing"?
