The Most Fresh & Cordial Political Thread Ever

The last thread ended about as they all do.

I challenge us to make it thru at least 2 pages without anyone personality insulting someone else here. See if we can actually talk about policy.

Article from the Cato Institute: Why’s Washington Spending So Much Money? Blame a Faulty Understanding of ‘Rights’

https://www.cato.org/commentary/whys...tanding-rights

"Not since 2001 has Congress balanced the federal budget — and it’s getting worse."

20 years with no federal budget? That's just insane.

Re: The Most Fresh & Cordial Political Thread Ever

Being serious for a moment here, I have a real choice to make. Do I come in here polite and attempt to help start this thread with a fresh outlook, or do I call out that dogshit article that can be summed up in one sentence: "Poor and lazy people need to stop sucking on the gov't tit and work harder to achieve their goals."

Help me decide SD.

PS. I agree the budget should be balanced.

I have no issue with disagreeing with what you think the primus of the article is. I think we can call out disagreements with the article itself without attacking the poster.

My main focus of that article was seeing we haven't had a budget in 20 years now. Basically our government has quit doing a major part of their jobs.

To add - There are many more reasons why our debt is so high, that the author of that commentary left out, i.e. endless wars, etc.

Oh I'm not calling you out - I agree with you that they really need to get their act together because I'm pretty tired of them not being able to agree on a budget. Just specifically saying I have a problem with that article/op-ed.

Fair enough. This thread is off to a good start lol. I probably could have found a better article about the debt than that one. But when I start a new thread, I like to at least start it with something regarding the subject.

Note - I didn't think you were attacking me here. I just meant that in general about any article posted here. At least 1 of us will likely always disagree with anything posted here. We can disagree with a post, article, etc., and have some civility.

Re: The Most Fresh & Cordial Political Thread Ever

US doing a diplomatic boycott of Olympics yawn. Not really making a sacrifice for our convictions are we? I would have instead been completely happy with a full boycott ( we know that wouldn't happen because of all those bidnesses and their commercials). I would have also loved us to send an entirely muslim/humanitarian diplomatic contingent. Missed opportunity imo.

You guys know what really makes me angry? When 3rd party content creators try to restrict how or when their content shows up on other websites. Arggghhhhh, just makes me want to bash their heads in with my louisville slugger.
