"It got locked for some reason. "

Ah. Got it.

Probably got 'frozen' under the terms of the policy implemented a few months ago towards any thread the devolves primarily into namecalling personal attacks.

Countdown until this one sees the same fate? The same players are already sending it in that direction....

namecalling personal attacks

Ah, like the true underlying theme of not only this politard thread, but of ALL politard based threads, from BOTH sides of the aisle.

Go figure.



Oh yeah, love this....

these people just cannot maintain a civil discussion

After the following posts from the same individual....

Right wingers have to out do each other in being what they are best at

smear and lie
who can be the biggest a-hole, who can say the most inflammatory remarks possible,

it's a game, whoever say's the worst possible BS about the other side wins!!

You call this hate??
are you serious???

that's just an reaction to the OP commentary, no lame photos
it was completely provoked by a poster that blatantly disregards all requests for civil behavior
like a 4th grade child

unbelievably pathetic as an example

now he is trying to word bomb the thread
wow? so loving and respectful
such a great way to show how right you are
thanks

The other side uses lies, misinformation and propaganda to demonize the other side because they don't have anything to offer.


Now what was that about ...

namecalling personal attacks




Oh the ironeeeeeeeee that abounds here.

I assumed the same, but the last page of that thread was perfectly decent conversation while the usual suspects were involved in a frothing at the mouth rantfest in at least 2 other threads that are still unlocked.

That is of course if your consider unceasing Ball Cupping between the same half dozen ideologically politard like minded individuals as a decent conversation.

But then again....

Hey Philo, you forgot these so unimportant factoids...

Maybe the title of this one is just too blatantly off the mark of ST's purpose? Or were the other two topics just as OT?

Or maybe the mods only had enough time to freeze one topic that day, and more will follow?

Who knows.

The 'usual suspects' are always going to be here until the get the whack, or they self- select out. In the meantime, there isn't much point in hand-wringing about them. Just don't engage them.

Yes we were so much better off under Shrub the Alcoholic cocaine fueled deserter from the military and the Neo-Cons.
Life was just so peachy keen then.
Not like the current disaster we are barely surviving.

I knew you'd agree with me PHILO after the FACTS of how your POTUS were posted regarding how he has ineffectively remedied the poor conditions for the CHILDREN, STUDENTS and BLACKS of America.

Pretty disgusting isn't it, PHILO.


Yet he states we should take in Refugees. All the while the Poverty level for the Children, Students and Blacks here keeps going up and up and up.

Well this is a rather depressing fact. Pretty sad how the "Gov't" can manipulate the truth in order to make itself look good.



The Big Lie: 5.6% Unemployment
by Jim Clifton

Here's something that many Americans -- including some of the smartest and most educated among us -- don't know: The official unemployment rate, as reported by the U.S. Department of Labor, is extremely misleading.

Right now, we're hearing much celebrating from the media, the White House and Wall Street about how unemployment is "down" to 5.6%. The cheerleading for this number is deafening. The media loves a comeback story, the White House wants to score political points and Wall Street would like you to stay in the market.

None of them will tell you this: If you, a family member or anyone is unemployed and has subsequently given up on finding a job -- if you are so hopelessly out of work that you've stopped looking over the past four weeks -- the Department of Labor doesn't count you as unemployed. That's right. While you are as unemployed as one can possibly be, and tragically may never find work again, you are not counted in the figure we see relentlessly in the news -- currently 5.6%. Right now, as many as 30 million Americans are either out of work or severely underemployed. Trust me, the vast majority of them aren't throwing parties to toast "falling" unemployment.

There's another reason why the official rate is misleading. Say you're an out-of-work engineer or healthcare worker or construction worker or retail manager: If you perform a minimum of one hour of work in a week and are paid at least $20 -- maybe someone pays you to mow their lawn -- you're not officially counted as unemployed in the much-reported 5.6%. Few Americans know this.

No wonder Mr. Obama "looks" so good. Just like he has "Contained" ISIS/ISIL etc.

Just found this OTHER Factual Number PHILO!!!


U.S. Uninsured Rate at 11.6% in Third Quarter 2015
http://www.gallup.com/poll/186047/uninsured-rate-third-quarter.aspx


NOT the 9.2% YOUR propaganda picture depicts. Amazingly, the "Uninsured Rate" under this POTUS has been at a sustained level ABOVE that under the last POTUS.

WTF is up with that, PHILO!




EDIT:

And these two Facts...
