Welcome to the thread. This is a thread for liberals and moderates- and people who are not a** holes to liberals and moderates. Talk about politics, books, movies, music, food, whatever. Trolls coming here just to stir up trouble, or those who come here to entertain their compatriots on other threads, will be banned. There are threads for fighting- this will not be one of them.

VERY Important- please read
**** If you cannot PM me because I have you on ignore, or you have me on ignore, do NOT post here, or you will be banned. I'm really not interested in talking to people I don't find congenial. If I were, I'd come find you. Those who make the effort to come find me even though they don't like me make me think they're even stupider than I thought they were before.

For those without the mental horsepower to understand the above- "RIGHT WINGERS ARE NOT WELCOME". If you are unable to figure out whether you are a right winger or not just don't post here. Let's not take the risk. I really want to save you the ban, unless you really really get off on that sort of thing. In which case, bring it on.

Freedom of association- it's important. It gives us the right to associate with folks we find congenial. So many people confuse freedom of speech (and the right to remain free of the government shutting you up) with the "Right" to talk to everyone- even people who don't want to talk to them. Grow up and learn- you don't have a "right" to talk to people who don't like you. You can try to exercise said right, but don't do it here- I haven't the patience for such moronic and juvenile ideas. You can't go in your neighbor's living room if he doesn't like you, and you can't force people not to block your phone calls, and you can't force your way in here. Suck it up and deal with it- it's reality.

Most important thing in life- be happy, make the people you love happy
