Dear Mods,

Can you please create an Obama Bashing folder in General Discussions (you can call it "Civil Political Discussions" if you want) so people can actually browse the Woodshed without finding 50% of all posts being hate filled rants about our President. Thank you for your time and consideration.

Regards,

You should read this book. (http://www.amazon.com/Atlas-Shrugged-Ayn-Rand/dp/0451191145)

You mean that book that Fox News has plugged over 75 times in the past 4 days?

A sophomoric, 50 year old book about a non-existent nation?

A book that I read, a book that has:

Randian man made the center of a godless world, not unlike Marxism
Implicit Totalitarian ("To the gas chambers go!")
Completely contradicts The Fountainhead
Gross opposition to altruism
Demonized sacrifice


Note: I'm not a socialist nor a communist. I love America. (That is coming from someone who has traveled the world and lived in several countries under several governments) The fact that we can have this little discussion says wonders. But if you don't see anything wrong with the above image then you are no longer thinking for yourself and Fox has officially given you a lobotomy... or you are Bernard Madoff. Funny how fast the right got behind a feminist/atheist/fornicator on this one.


There is another book that I think most people on these threads like, some call it the Good Book, some just call it the Bible. See what it says about money, sacrifice, pride, charity, corruption, indifference, greed, etc.

Actually the Mods should be doing the job they wanted and deleting the Obama hate threads or threads with hate crap in it. Its Matts rule and NAtes rule, or maybe its NAtes rule cause Matt would like the rule.

To quote Nate, "You may not like him, or his approach but as our president he deserves our support." Then again I think that only applied to McCame...

Just today I have read some posts from Nate that stated what he didn't like about McCain and some posts about things he didn't like/agree with about Bush. So, he isn't exclusive. lol

I don't watch TV news at all, so I wouldn't know about FOX plugging the book. Bash it all you want, but you obviously haven't read it and you seem to be uninformed about what a profound influence it has been on many famous Americans. Take Alan Greenspan for example.

If you see anything wrong with the image you posted, then you are more of a socialist than you think. Please tell me, what is wrong with being rich?

You really would benefit from watching some of the old Milton Friedman interviews. I don't know if there has been a more brilliant thinker and communicator among the defenders of capitalism.

If other people would like to see a separate section for political discussions, then we can do that. However, you are the first one to bring it up.

Yeah, that's an intelligent way to make your argument. If anyone disagrees with you, then just insult them.:rolleyes:

Anyways, that picture is ridiculous and it doesn't even come close to representing reality.

If you recall, the restriction only applied to avatars, signatures and thread titles that deliberately vilified or slandered Obama. I have asked a couple of people to remove some signature images, and so far the only thread title that has crossed the line has been this one.

Saying that people can't vilify or slander Obama in thread title, signatures and avatars, doesn't mean that people can't talk about Obama.

Calling him a Socialist (http://www.matt-hughes.com/forums/showthread.php?t=781)

That thread is criticizing Obama's economic plan.

That thread is about Rush Limbaugh.

That thread is about the earmark-laden spending bill.

That's a poll from another site, in which Obama seems to be doing very poorly in. But people are still free to go there and vote however they like.

That thread was actually started in support of Obama's policies, so you should like that one. It's just that some of us happen to disagree with slaughtering children, so it's not well supported here.

Even if the initial post wasn't directly related to Obama, you only need to scroll down 2 or 3 replies to see some slander.

Again, I don't care if anyone on here hates Obama, or just personally disagrees with his policies, or just wants to vent, or wants to be ignorant, I DONT CARE. Again, the fact that you can openly criticize our leader/government is part of what makes this country great.

What I don't like is having every other thread be an Obama/Liberal/Democratic bashing thread. Thats what I proposed another section in General Discussions for politics, so I can avoid that stuff. But I think I'm just going to have to miss out on the Book/Image/Quote/Video/Jokes/Misc threads here in the Woodshed and stay in the MMA section. So long Woodshed.

Like I said, if enough people want a separate 'Political Discussions' section, then I'll talk to Matt about it and we'll see about creating one. So I'm just waiting to hear some more support for your idea.

IMO, it's just as simple to skip over them. I keep seeing that "Ladies with Lower Back Tats" thread. I read it once and have ignored it since, but it seems to be popular with everybody else. It's not a big deal to just overlook threads that don't interest you.

I've been ignoring that thread also, since my only response would be:

"...are skanks."

I don't see what's so hard about ignoring a thread, unless your convictions are so weak that you just can't handle someone disagreeing with you.

I understand what you mean by the slanders, but I think the forum leaders and members do a good job as far as where to post. Come on we all know the Religion, Politics, and other controversial issues will be posted no matter what. Just have fun with it and roll it off your back. People are people and what I think sometimes when I read something I don't like is "ignorance is a bliss." :wink:

In the Communism thread for example Obama wasn't even the topic! He was only mentioned once if Memory serves. The Rush thread was I thought it was a Legit question that also gave Folks A chance to say mean things about Rush! So that's at least a legit discussion on some of them and not pure Bashing! If somebody thinks for example that Obama don't have better things to do than attack Rush they can go to that thread and say that along with explaining their thinking.
