    Re: READ THIS....The Political Thread 2014....

    Internet Troll: One who posts a deliberately provocative message to a newsgroup, message board or website with the intention of causing maximum disruption and argument. The person is often new to the group, has little or no connection to the main interest of the members of the group and has joined the group surreptitiously with only ill intent.

    A Troll's thoughts and intentions are often hollow with regard to the members of the group and thus, they will "hit and run" to create the maximum surprise. Once exposed as a Troll, they seldom stay on the site for more than a few posts, although there are exceptions.

    You are free to defend your political positions. Instead you just blankly say foolishness. Give us a political topic you defend or go troll somewhere else. If you see something you do not agree with show us where it is wrong and why.
    So if we do not hold a liberal political position we must not know anything about welding ? Very open minded and tolerant of you.

    opinions are like a$$holes, we all have them and they all stink... but since freedom of speech is protected by the first amendment, one can openly voice what they want without fear of disappearing in the night...but you are also free not to read what may upset you..with that said you can not open any off topic threads and stick to the wealth of info threads here...

    Obama's legacy....


    The last eight years have brought the lowest labor participation rates since the 1970s, with 95 million Americans out of the labor force. The so-called recovery has been the weakest one since the 1940s. We have the lowest home ownership rate in 51 years – despite mortgage rates artificially kept at record lows. Over 11 million more Americans are on food stamps since he became president and more than 43 million Americans now live in poverty. One of every six men between 18 and 34 are either in prison or out of work.

    And by the time he leaves office, President Obama will have added more to our national debt that all the other presidents before him combined. When President Obama finally leaves office, the national debt will be almost $20 trillion. Prior to taking office, the man who has tacked on $9.3 trillion to what our children and grandchildren owe once said the then $9 trillion national debt was “unpatriotic.”

    Then, of course, there's President Obama's assault on the business community through his burdensome regulations. Consider this: The estimated cost of regulations under Obama is a staggering $873 billion. That includes a shocking $344 billion cost in Environmental Protection Agency regulations alone. All told, the number of new regulations that been finalized under President Obama checks in at almost 3,000.


    Just to name a few...

    I wish BO would move back to Chicago, take a nightly tour with his full SS detail through the really bad areas following the police cars and ambulances and witness what he and Rahm Emanual have wrought on their black brothers, sisters and children.

    well both your wishes are touching, but carl paladino (trumps former ny co-chairman) takes the cake, on this one. he wishes: "b. obama, catch mad cow disease after having relations w/ a hereford, he dies before his trial, and is buried in a cow pasture next to valerie jarrett, who died weeks prior after being convicted of sedition and treason, when a jihadi cel mate mistook her for being a nice person and decapited her."

    You've been a "lurker" since Nov 2015, and your first post is this? Something smells fishy to me.

    Re: READ THIS....The Political Thread 2014....

    I agree as well guys, sounds like troll BS to me.

    Seen the whole "I've been lurking forever, but joined to just make this one political butt hurt post (or deliberately incindary comment), sure to piss a bunch of ppl off" deal more times than I care to mention. Guys used to have two or three member IDs and would troll the site with impunity back in the day. We have pretty well put an end to that shlt. Sure, some of them slip thru the cracks, but were patient and once the hammer falls, it's all over lol. We got all the time in the world

    If I wasn't feeling so lazy right now, I would pull up his info and see if it's someone we may already know but operating under a different guise.

    My thoughts would be to just ignore it. Likely BS anyways.

    Carry on lol.

    my thoughts are, we have some funny business going on w/in the circuit. not sure of anything, my suspicion is governmental implants. makes total sense, when corraberating w/ everything else that outa control ort ther. my percerpetion is moderarors safe, but hard to infiltrate everyone who comes into the picture. all i can say, at this point is " go trump" and "welding web"

    I would not go that far with it. I doubt the government would bother with implants hear. I do not know why they would. There have not been any threats or conspiring to over throw the government. I am sure the moderators are good people. If there were any attempt to silence this group I think the first thing to happen will be that there will be no more politics topics allowed. Then you will know there is some kind of attempt at silencing free speech.

    Re: READ THIS....The Political Thread 2014....

    To clarify our position on this subject, we decided awhile back that instead of completely eliminating any and all types of political discussion we created this specific thread. This allows ppl to have an enterchange of thoughts without it effecting the rest of the site. We try very hard not to overmoderate things here. Heavy handed moderation tactics often leave a bad impression on a lot of ppl (myself included) as well as creates more work for us.

    But to be clear, free speech ends at the front door when someone agrees to the terms of use when they join the site. If this thread were ever to pose a problem for the site in general, it would be history.

    We think this as well as the religious thread provides an outlet for those who like discussing such things to do so while still being a contributing member of the site in general. At the same time, if someone was to join the site solely to troll this thread or post copy paste rhetoric to the OT section with the intent to either cause trouble or deciminate an agenda laden message, they won't be around for very long.

    Back to our regularly scheduled programming lol

    Re: READ THIS....The Political Thread 2014....

    The right to "free speech" does not include the right to have some one else provide you with the platform (this forum for instance) from which to make that speech. This forum is in essence some ones "private property" and they have every right to decide (acting thru their representatives the moderators) what will or will not be allowed. So if you go getting yourself banned (or simply have one of your posts deleted) don't go kidding yourself that you've had any of your "rights" violated.

    Re: READ THIS....The Political Thread 2014....

    I love guys that come to a welding forum and want to argue politics.

    I am particularly interested in politics especially this year

    But I will be damned if I'm going to argue with anyone about it.

    I'd rather chew my own foot off.

    Hillary just keeps getting in the news.

    My remarks were not meant to infer that we have the right to say what ever we want here. I do my best to go by the rules given to us here and try not to offend. I should have used different wording.
