New Political Childboard 'The War Room'
« on: November 28, 2011, 11:54:06 AM »
For what's about to happen over the next 12 months it may be a good idea to segregate the political rhetoric to it's own board.  Otherwise the coffee house is gonna get a might messy.

Just sayin'

why?  we have always managed before.  this is not the first election the coffee house will have gone through.
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

I don't think it got messy the last election.

One- you mean to say beeks who go ballistic over screened bottom boards and feeding are cordial and reserved during a political season?  That would make this forum purely unique. 

Two- I was thinking like how the sports board is separate. thought the tons of political threads would clutter up navigating all the other threads (you know, messy).

Oh...so you think that we need a separate board just because there are a few thin-skinned socialists who insist on trying to shout down the well reasoned majority? :buttkick:

Just kidding, of course  :-D

Oy!

Naw.  Just thought there's high enough volume of political discourse to warrant a separate board.  It wouldn't hide it out make it any harder to get to.  In fact it would be easier to find.  No more sorting thru threads about Holidays, Birthdays, and booze.  One can zero in on someone who needs to be taken to the wood shed...

No  worries there Hemlock As said previously,we have weathered other election cycles here. Heck,I think these are just the kind of topics the coffee house was set up for.
If things get out of hand the Admins and mods will straighten things out pretty promptly.I think we,ve had many exchanges of ideas here, Maybe no persuasions one way or the other, but interesting conversation none the less.just hang on and enjoy the coaster ride.
Sometimes it's fun,and sometimes it scares the heck out of ya!! :)

For the record, I don't disagree, Hemlock.  But for me it doesn't make much difference since I read through Google Reader I get everything regardless of what subforum it is in.
