    Does politics=government?

    I have been thinking about the locked threads because of politics. It would appear that everything in this country is tied to the government or politics. Talk about airplanes, wait aren't they controlled by the FAA, a government agency? Think about a TV show, wait, aren't they controlled by the FCC, a government agency? Talk about taxes, wait, aren't they controlled by the IRS, a government agency? Talk about a legal case, wait, aren't they under the judicial system, a government system.
    What it boils down to is you really can't talk about anything without talking about the political system of this country. Frank

    Woops, did I let the genie out of the bottle? If you had a week, only lasted 9 days!

    Did you know, or were you aware, that becoming a genie is also the result of a secret election process? It's true, first you have to be nominated, then you have to be elected by a governing body of GG's, or "Grand Genies". The length of one's term of service can also vary depending on his/her performance.

    The old adage of "don't talk politics or religion at the dinner table" is for the weak.

    We need discourse within our circles of friends and family. Being shy wont help one bit.

    I went to a couple of Forum Foundry's other sites (the ones listed in that other thread) and on at least one of them they do discuss laws and thus some polyticks (misspelled on purpose).

    Is there a reason we're special?

    Have we really misbehaved that badly in the past?

    LOL. Remember the rubber room.

    Moderators don't establish the rules, admins and owner does, we just enforce them, they wrote them, our rules say no politics unless directly related ( not indirectly ) to treasure hunting....

    Since you found forum that allows it you know where you can go when you have urge to discuss politics.....Just can't do it here.....

    Unfortunately, discourse is seldom the result as things usually, and quickly, turn into pissing matches where the wisest minds among them proceed to lump people they have never even met into childish, self fulfilling subgroups, such as sheeple or weak, to offer just a couple of quick examples.

    Well, he does live in Arkansas.

    Seems they teach "animal husbandry" a little differently here.
