    Seriously. This is getting ridiculous.

    You know, I find it's not that difficult to be a member here, and that someone opinions differ. I guess not everyone feels this way.

    I guess I understand if the mods don't want overtly political threads started. I don't love it, because it's a big part of the news, but I get it. But sometimes, some other topic is going to lend itself to a veer into the politics of it. That's true of the preschool thing. I mean, hell, I was trying to point out that it was NOT a partisan issue, or shouldn't be, and that the president got his ideas from a conservative. Too explosive, I guess.

    I didn't lock the preschool thread -- I was just beaten to the padlock by someone else.

    What's ridiculous is you've been here awhile and you know the rules and you don't follow them.

    Apparently, porn is still fair game, to the delight of certain individuals (who know who they are).

    Nothing. Mods, lock this thread now.

    Sorry, but horse hockey.

    You cannonballed in with Obama when it wasn't necessary to the topic -- and you knew it would get the reaction it did. Talk all you want about preschool. That's not where that thread was going.

    Again and again and again. The usual suspects.

    By the way, it's all part of the plan.

    What "reaction" did it get? Buncha guys talking civilly about where the preschool policy originated? Yeah, I guess I did expect that reaction.
