Please, remain courteous and respectful to all forum members at all times. You agree to take responsibility for reporting such posts when you come across them. Please, use the ignore feature if need be. Any member who intentionally and continually posts inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages with the primary intent of provoking readers into an emotional response, or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion, may be regarded as a troll by staff, and have their account suspended or banned.

3. You cannot harass (sexually or otherwise) other members. This includes malicious, slanderous, or defamatory comments. If you are not sure if something you write is inappropriate or not then don't say it. Err on the side of caution.

4. Copying and Pasting Articles, and Starting New Threads. You cannot simply cut and paste in posts or when starting threads. You MUST provide the identifying information (source, author, date, and URL). You must also offer some original thoughts along with the cut and paste. You may copy and paste an excerpt or series of excerpts from the article. Excerpts really shouldnt be more then a paragraph or two. Furthermore, if you use images or other copyrighted material in your posts or signature you must have permission of the copyright holder unless you know for a fact that the image is in the public domain. In addition:
a. It must include the identifying information; e.g., where available, the author, the publication, the date, the URL.
b. The member must offer some context, including: How did you hear of this article? What is your opinion? Why is it important to you? Why should it be important to forum readers? The more context you provide, the more you assist others in gauging the excerpted information's significance.
c. You may copy and paste an excerpt or series of excerpts, not the whole thing or even the majority of the whole thing to encourage people to read the entire article.

A violation of any of the above will result in the deletion or closing of the post or thread and could earn you a warning or suspension. If you have any questions concering any of the above please PM a moderator and we will be happy to clarify.

5. You cannot post the same thing in multiple forums. You must not open similar threads about the same or a similar topic. You cannot spam the board or send unsolicited messages to members via PM, email or any other means.

6. Do not post off-topic. You cannot derail a thread with off topic posts.

8. You may not alter quotes in a way that misrepresents what was originally said.

9. Multiple accounts are not allowed. If you are found to have more than one account all accounts will be permanently terminated.

10. You cannot have a user name, avatar, signature, or post images that are deliberately offensive. That includes the display of overly explicit or graphic images that may not be suitable for minors.

11. Signatures can not have more than three lines of text, with a font size no larger than "4", and no more than two font colors. Images in signatures cannot be any larger than 800 pixels wide x 200 pixels tall. Animated images are not allowed.

12. You are prohibited from taking any action to disturb the use of the services by others, distribute material that contains viruses, spyware or any other malicious code or harmful programs. This includes interfering with the working of the network, attempts to gain unauthorized access to a service or other computer systems that are part of the site or any other site, by use of the available services.

13. Discussion of moderation actions in public and/or private forums is not permitted. Moderation actions include warnings, suspensions and the editing or deletion of posts. If a member has a concern about a moderation action, he or she is invited to address it with the board staff via Private Message. This rule exists to protect the privacy of all posters with regards to disciplinary action. The moderator team will never publicly discuss the warnings/suspensions of any posters, and we ask that you return the favor, whether about yourself or another poster. Posting about moderation actions in the public forums constitutes a violation. You are free to discuss a moderation action via Private Message with the moderator involved, but you may not harass or abuse the moderators (as already specified in the forum rules). In practical terms, this means that once a moderator tells you his or her decision is final, no further PMs about that moderation action are permitted. If you have a concern about a moderation action, you are free to appeal to a Forum Administrator via Private Message. You may only discuss moderator activities or discussion of moderation with staff member if you chose to private message and are not under any circumstances allowed to use the PM function to forward or promote moderator discussion in regards to specific forum action, amongst other regular members. Administrators do reserve the right to read said PMs and may do so ; if that results in discovery of messaging between posters of such moderator discussion then it will lead to the same violation being received for discussing said moderator actions on the forum. If you receive a message to the effect of having been given moderator information, please report it to a member of staff. Engaging back in that discussion with the original violator will earn you just as stiff a sanction.

14. Do not ignore moderators or administrators. Do not repost something a moderator or administrator has deleted. You cannot have moderators or administrators on your ignore list.

15. Only post in English. Short passages in foreign languages may be acceptable if its use seems helpful for the ongoing discussion and when there is no indication of a potential violation of the forum rules. Always provide a translation into English in such cases. In case of doubt, the incident will be regarded as a violation, no matter of the actual meaning of the foreign language text.

16. The use of words/comments etc. written by other posters, without approval of the poster in your personal signature is not allowed nor are references, by name, to other posters allowed.

17. Please pay attention to announcements by Forum staff that will be found in the "Welcome! / News & Announcements" forum from time to time.

18. Use of "liar", "lies", "lying", etc. Accusing someone of being a "liar" or similar accusations towards other posters will generally be regarded as implying an insult and therewith as a violation of the forum rules. "I question the validity of your statement because...", "That's not the truth" or "you are wrong about that" are sufficient for any decent discussion if you want to disagree with somebody's assertions.

19. Thread opening restriction for new members. In order to control SPAM, new members must have moderator approval to start their own threads.

20. Thread titles must relate to the discussion within. Do not make misleading titles, or titles such as "Guess what..." or "You'll never believe this...". Members need to be able to identify the general gist of the thread via the title. Profanity in thread titles is not permitted.

21. Forum members are instructed to use forum tools and abilities for their intended purposes and no other. If members identify a forum glitch or weakness of any kind that allows you to see or do something you know you shouldn't, please report it. Being aware of any unintended access to the Forum and failing to take appropriate steps to notify staff of said access issues, will create a presumption of seeking to take advantage of the issue, will result in either account suspension, or banishment.

22. Any link to a site that contains graphic content, must contain a warning describing what a person might reasonably expect to view if they click on said link. No graphic pictures are to be posted on the Forum.

23. Threats or advocations of violence toward a public figure, or member of the Forum, will not be tolerated. Conversation about revolution or the like is not prohibited by this rule; directly calling for violence is, eg It's time to kill every <redacted> that voted for the bill, is not permitted.

24. Accounts with no posts will be deleted after 30 days. Inactive accounts with low post histories may be deleted after one year.

25. Private forums are something offered to members that decide to contribute directly to this site via donations. These donations help immensely in keeping this site up and running. Private forums are designed to allow the contributing member discuss whatever he/she wants to and to have the power to direct that discussion in whatever way he/she chose. They were not designed nor are they intended for simply talking trash about members that don't have access to the forum. While the targeted members cannot see the forum or the comments, it creates a negative atmosphere that really isn't necessary. If you want to totally rip apart ideas, ideologies, political parties, etc. that is fine. We simply ask that you don't use the private forums as a means to attack other members that aren't privy to such comments. It is difficult enough to have a political discussion forum because the discussion of politics is inherently heated as people are so passionate about their beliefs...the ones that take the time to come to such a site in the first place at least. The idea of private forums is so people of similar political persuasions can discuss whatever they want without fear of being attacked. Nonetheless, we hope that a certain level of maturity would foster itself within such an arena and not simply lend itself to a bashing forum.

Private Forums are governed by all of the above Forum rules. In addition:
  • Private forums that essentially become abandoned homes will be subject to deletion, donation or reorganization. Just like elsewhere in life, clubs sometimes lose their vitality and purpose for a myriad of reasons. If it becomes clear that a private forum has clearly lost its vitality and nobody is going to really use it anymore, owners are advised to consider whether to reuse the forum for something new and productive rather than let them linger or notify the Administration that the forum should be rearranged for other purposes, closed, merged with other compatible private forums, donated to others for new purposes, etc. Do not be concerned that your forum must be a membership and post count race with others to avoid falling under this policy; the question is whether your forum has actual vitality instead of being 'brain dead.'
  • Additionally, private forums may only be owned by subscribed members in the Platinum or Diamond categories.
  • Should the owner of a private forum be banned, quit USPOL or otherwise abandon the forum the PF will be transferred to another owner or closed.
  • Propriety of private forums. Administration staff will determine the desirability of a proposed private forum and enact any conditions upon it to ensure its purpose is productive.
  • Any and all instances of sharing accounts by allowing someone else to log in under their own account so they can see into private forums for which they are otherwise not permitted to access, will be deemed violation of the double account rule and all caught doing so will be permanently banned.
  • Relaying private forum posts and information to other posters who are not members of the particular private forum for any negative or destructive purpose (eg mean-spirited gossip, fueling interpersonal disputes, etc), is not permitted, and will constitute a violation of the Forum rules.
  • For purposes of monitoring USPOL Terms of Service Administrative staff (not Moderators) will have access to Private Forums.
  • All Private Forums must have at least one active Administrator as a member for purposes of handling issues which cannot be addressed through moderation permissions.
  • Discussion of moderation activities is prohibited on the open site and is likewise prohibited in Private Forums.

26. The administrators and moderators reserve the right to edit and/or delete a post,and/or close a thread, and/or delete a thread at any time if of the opinion that the post is too obscene, inappropriate, or the discussion has run its course.

27. 'Back seat moderating' is not allowed. If you take issue with another poster's contribution to the forum, you're welcome to report any posts you think are out of line, but you should not bring it up publicly within the forum.

28. Images in posts (whether embedded or hot linked) must be reasonable in size. 800x800 should be considered a good rule of thumb. Excessively large images make it difficult for users on mobile devices to load pages. If necessary please simply link to very large images using the URL tags. In addition, the following images are not permitted (including, but not limited to pages with images or videos containing):
  • Strategically covered nudity
  • Sheer or see-through clothing
  • Lewd or provocative poses
  • Close-ups of breasts, buttocks, or crotches

29. Any solicitation or communication involving sports betting / gambling / online casinos / bookies and or internet based card or slot machine systems or sites will lead to all said content being physically removed from the site and server, and will lead to any and or all parties involved being permanently removed and banned from the site to the farthest extent possible. This includes any links to any form of bookmaker, casino, any type of game or match or event where money transfers on the outcome or link of any sort to wire act violations and or anything in violation of either the Internet Gambling Regulation, Consumer Protection, and Enforcement Act, Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act of 2006, or the Federal wire Act. This applies not only to the open forum but all and or any chat rooms, articles, private messages and or private forums. All content that violates this rule will be deleted, without notice.

CONSEQUENCES

Failure to comply with any of the forum rules may result in your posts being edited or deleted and/or your account being temporarily or permanently banned from the forums. U.S. Politics Online uses a warning system that generates an automated Private Message to members when they are in violation of Forum rules. The decision to issue a warning is left to the discretion of the moderator or administrator handling the violation. If a member does not agree with an action taken by a moderator, they can appeal to an administrator after seeking clarification from the moderator who issued the warning/infraction and appealing to them in the first instance. Members MAY NOT harass a moderator or administrator by sending excessive PMs when they are discussing an appeal.

Violations are assigned a point value. Points are valid for 30 days. When a members earns 10 points, their account will be automatically suspended: five (5) days for a first suspension; ten (10) days for a second suspension; and twenty (20) days for a third suspension. If a member incurs an additional 10 points after having served three periods of suspension, then they will be permanently banned from the Forum.

Point values are as follows:
Zero (0) points Warning
Two (2) points - Minor infraction / Non post infraction (minor) / Off topic posts / spamming
Four (4) points - Academic dishonesty / Baiting / Discussing moderator or administrator actions / Implying an insult / Minor insults / Moderate infraction / Non-post infraction (moderate) / Thread dumping
Six (6) points - Direct insult at another member / major infraction / Non-post infraction (major)
Ten (10) points - Act of criminality, or advocating thereof

The administrators and moderators also bear the right to issue warnings, temporarily suspend or ban posters for continued trolling or other serious misconduct (eg. professional spamming) even if the poster has not yet reached the maximum warning points or suspensions level. Other options if the above consequences do not seem adequate include placing the member in a moderation queue, which means all posts will have to be approved before they are posted to the board.

  • Racism and discrimination are Ok

    Just ask a liberal if discrimination is bad

    They'll say "Of course !"

    As long as it's the right KIND of discrimination

    .. ask a liberal if racism is bad

    They'll say "Of course !"

    As long as it's the right KIND of racism

    Truthfully, for liberals racism & discrimination are fine !

    But liberals aren't big on truth


    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    San Francisco City Attorney Dennis Herreras spokesman, John Cot, defended the politically correct racial discrimination.

    [The San Francisco Police Department] uses lawful, merit-based civil service examinations in making promotions, Cot said in a statement, according to the Chronicle. [The system is] designed to provide qualified individuals with the chance for advancement, while ensuring fair treatment without regard to race, gender, religion, age or other status.

    San Francisco, California, might provide a safe harbor for illegal aliens looking to evade the law, but it is doing little to safeguard the right of 13 white male cops to move up the career ladder based on merit with less-qualified minority and female candidates receiving promotions over them.

    The city to this day has a long-standing practice and custom of discriminating against white males in SFPD promotions to the rank of sergeant, lieutenant and captain, the 13 policemen's attorney, M. Greg Mullanax, stated in the lawsuit, according to Townhall.

    In the lawsuit,
    the officers from the San Francisco Police Department alleged in federal court earlier this week that the City of San Francisco discriminated against them by refusing to promote them in favor of minority candidates and decades ago, minorities were the ones filing suit over discrimination in hiring and promotion practices.

    The lawsuit filed Tuesday in federal court is the latest round of a conflict that dates back at least to 1973, when an organization representing black and female officers sued the San Francisco police force for discrimination in hiring and promotions, the San Francisco Chronicle explained.
    The city settled the case in 1979 by taking steps to increase diversity, including the banding of promotional test results so that all candidates who scored within a certain range were treated the same, allowing them to be judged on other factors such as experience and language skills.

    However, this practice ended up hiring and promoting individuals with lower scores over higher-performing candidates.

    Federal courts upheld banding in 1992 in the face of a lawsuit by the San Francisco Police Officers Association, which argued that the practice discriminated against whites, the Chronicles Bob Egelko recounted. The U.S. Justice Department reviewed the Police Department in 2016 and commended it for the increased diversity in its workforce with nearly 49 percent nonwhites and 15 percent women, both above national averages but said improvements were still needed particularly in promotions.

    Today, the system continues to perpetuate discrimination.

    But the 1979 settlement with minority and female officers expired in 1998, and Tuesdays suit is the latest to claim that the departments continuation of its test-scoring policies is both unfair and illegal, Egelko noted. Mullanax said in the 2016 promotional exam for lieutenant, banding was used to promote all three black sergeants who applied even though their scores were lower than those of 11 white candidates who were denied promotions. A similar procedure was used to promote four women, while passing over seven men with higher scores so the Police Department could accomplish its gender-biased agenda, the suit said.

    A decade and a half ago, Caucasian cops won a similar suit.

    The lead plaintiff, Lt. Ric Schiff, was denied a promotion to captain in favor of women and minority candidates with lower scores, the suit said, Egelko informed. Schiff, 59 an officer since 1985 was the lead plaintiff in a 2003 lawsuit on behalf of 12 sergeants who accused the police force of discriminating in favor of black candidates for lieutenant by banding the top 97 test scores and bypassing white, Latino and Asian American officers with higher scores. The city without any acknowledgment of wrongdoing settled the lawsuit for $1.6 million, giving $200,000 to Schiff, who was later promoted to lieutenant.

    It was stressed in the lawsuit that gender discrimination is as pervasive and unfair at the department as racial discrimination.

    [S]omehow, a female 22 positions down the list who, in rank order, would not have received a promotion based on merit received a first-round promotion, the lawsuit argues. In fact, four of the 12 females promoted would not have received jobs had not a gender-oriented promotional process been utilized. Seven males were passed over for promotion so the Police Department could accomplish its gender biased agenda.

    Maybe racism & discrimination aren't Ok ???

    Fraudulent "social justice" is expensive for this college

    The real

    Racists wanted racism !!

    It didn't work out that way, sorry racists, your hate fails again

    Time to put away your ignorance and hate


    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    A jury added $33 million in punitive damages to $11 million in compensatory damages awarded to an Ohio bakery after Oberlin College libeled the family-owned shop for racial profiling.

    Oberlin College tried to sacrifice a beloved 5th-generation bakery, its owners and its employees, at the altar of political correctness in order to appease the campus 'social justice warfare' mob,' Jacobson quoted himself on his blog from a statement he made about Thursdays verdict. 'The jury sent a clear message that the truth matters, and so do the reputations and lives of people targeted by false accusations - particularly when those false accusations are spread by powerful institutions. Throughout the trial, the Oberlin College defense was tone-deaf and demeaning towards the bakery and its owners, calling the bakery nearly worthless. The jury sent a message that all lives matter - including the lives of ordinary working people who did nothing wrong other than stop people from stealing."

    The event leading up to the lawsuit that sparked racial tensions occurred the day after President Donald Trump was elected to the White House in November 2016.

    'A student tried to buy alcohol with a fake ID and shoplift from Allyn D. Gibson, David Gibson's son, the Chronicle-Telegram recounted. 'Allyn D. Gibson followed the student out of the store, and the two got into a physical altercation. Two other students got involved, and police have said when they arrived, the three students were hitting Allyn D. Gibson while he was on the ground."


    The apprehension had everything to do with theft and nothing to do with race.

    Allyn D. Gibson is white and the students are black, the Chronicle-Telegraphs Bruce Walton explained. The three students pleaded guilty in August 2017 to misdemeanor charges and read statements into the record acknowledging that Allyn D. Gibson was within his right to detain the shoplifter and that his actions were not racially motivated.

    However, when social justice activists learned about the incident, it turned into a social justice campaign against the bakery.

    But in the two days immediately after the shoplifting incident, Oberlin College students protested in front of the bakery and passed out flyers urging people to boycott the bakery, alleging the bakery had a history of racial profiling, Walton continued. Oberlin College stopped ordering from the bakery after the protests but resumed in January 2017. The college once again stopped ordering from Gibsons after the lawsuit was filed in November 2017.

    Tensions flared as both sides of the debate made their arguments public and as the mainstream media added the episode to its social justice narrative.

    The day after the arrests, hundreds of students protested outside the bakery, The Associated Press (AP) recounted. Members of Oberlin Colleges student senate published a resolution saying Gibsons had a history of racial profiling and discriminatory treatment. When news of the protests spread online, bikers and counterprotesters soon converged on the town to jeer students and make purchases from Gibsons. Conservatives derided the students on social media as coddled snowflakes with a mob mentality, while students attacked the store as a symbol of systemic racism.

      The new trendy racism & hatred of progressives

      It's not to be defined as hate or racism, that's too up-front & honest

      Progressives can't be honest, if they were honest, no one would ever vote for them

      As their new methods demand, they summon the word hate, accusing others of it, to cover up their own . . { read on }

      ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

      MSNBC contributor who previously called for a mob with "pitchforks and torches" to protest outside the home of a President Trump supporter now wants white people "destroyed."

      The new comment comes from Elie Mystal during his appearance on MSNBC's "AM Joy" program, Fox News reported.

      "You don't communicate it to them - you beat them. Beat them. They are not a majority of this country. The majority of white people in this country are not a majority of the country. And all the people who are not fooled by this need to come together, go to the polls, go to the protests, do whatever you have to do. You do not negotiate with these people - you destroy them," Mystal said.

      Fox News reported Joy Reid, the program host, realized her guest's comment could be taken as inflammatory and quickly intervened.

      "The black man said 'beat them,' meaning in an election," she said as Mystal added "figuratively."

      Last week Mystal called for "pitchforks and torches" to be brought to the home of billionaire Trump supporter Stephen Ross.

      "People of color are already targets under this administration," Mystal claimed on the air. "I have no problem on shining the light back on the donors who fund this kind of racialized hate. I mean I go further. I want pitchforks and torches outside this man's house in the Hamptons."

      He continued: "I've been to the Hamptons, it's very nice. There's no reason it has to be. There's no reason he should be able to have a nice little party. There's no reason why people shouldn't be able to be outside of his house and making their voices peacefully understood."

      MSNBC host Chris Hayes then described the mob that threatened Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell in a near-riot outside his home as "peaceful protests."

      Twitter suspended the campaign account for McConnell after video of the threats against his life were posted online.

      [ That Twitter and its 'open and honest' policy ]

      In the video, one protester shouted "just stab the mother f - - in the heart, please."

      [ ...an honest progressive ]

      Hayes said: "I imagine there will be peaceful protests outside this which is, again it's all speech, right, peaceful protest, the right to assembly under the First Amendment, that is the way that " because your point here is how does civil society deal with what we're seeing?"

      [ What is it we're seeing Mr. Hayes ? Oh yes, the racist, white supremist president... who is neither.

      But that's the trendy new message of racism & hatred we get from progressives today. ]

        Real nasty stuff being spewed by an insanely hateful person. The fervor ddisplayed reminds me of the radical islamists. Convert or die.

          If trump used that kind of language I would say trump is a racist.

          Exactly

          Now it's Ok to hate "white" people.

          Some seem to believe that trading the colors to hate, makes that hate acceptable.

          It is stupid and insane

            Truthfully, for liberals racism & discrimination are fine !

            But liberals aren't big on truth


            ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

            To sum up the article you posted:

            In 1973 San Francisco was sued for discriminating against black and female police officers. The case was settled in 1979 when the city adopted new practices to increase diversity.

            The new policy allows hiring and promotion based on scores within a certain range - rather than being promoted specifically by merit. The problem is - there is no hard definition of what percentages that will be 'banded' together. Top 5%? Top 10%?

            In 1992 the courts upheld the banding policy as a 'merit based' process..

            But the banding practice has been abused to the point the city lost a 2003 lawsuit after they 'banded' the top 97 test scores allowing them to bypass white or male candidates to promote more 'diverse' officers. But this did not end or even curb the banding policy, which continues to this day. It is common practice for 'minority' candidates to be promoted while 20+ positions down the list from more qualified white males.
            How many times did Obama say things like, "Our strength is in our diversity." And there is no doubt that part of what makes the US so great is our melting pot of diverse people from all over the world. The problem is liberals believe diversity itself is a sign of strength. These are the people insisting every group is to 'Look like America."

            Freedom and liberty created diversity - not the other way around. Allowing individuals to be the best they can be without consideration of gender, skin color, or sexual preference. This is what makes us great. Diversity in itself means nothing.

              They tell us about how great it is for us all to look and think different, then they try to make us all the same !

              "Diversity is so wonderful." they say. Then work against it !!

              They lie

              They like to tell us who we are, by first telling us "That's not who we are."

              https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gouAcayDwLM

              Over and over they tell us this. They tell us who we aren't.

              Who we AREN'T, is what they want us to be !


              Thank heavens for that !!

              We SEE who THEY ARE !!

              By their own examples they set for us, over and over, we see who they are.

              Are we to be who they are ? DO WE WANT TO BE WHO THEY ARE ?????

              Violent, hateful, dishonest, racist, nasty, childish people . . . IS THAT "WHO WE ARE" ?????

              It's who THEY are. Are we to follow their example ???

              No !

              I say with confidence; "That's not who we are !!"

              Americans do not want to be dishonest, violent thief's. Let our liberal "friends" keep that, what they consider, high honor !

              Let them yammer endlessly on about "that's not who we are" if it suits them.

              https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gouAcayDwLM

              Truth is, they don't like who we are and want us to submit to their "authority," they want to tell us how to live, they want to rule us in every manner & respect.

              Sorry obama, sorry hilary, that's not who we are.

              How about they be honest for once ??? Liberals HATE DIVERSITY !!! They want us all to march to their music, like what they like, agree with them, do what they tell us to do, think what they tell us to think....

              Sorry Obama, "That's not who we are !'


              And Mr. Obama, I'm sorry to say, we have no interest in being who you want us to be.

              But it's an excellent lie to tell the masses to sell the scam of liberal ideas.

              They love everyone to "be different."

              Absolute Bull shirt ! Diversity is an enemy of liberalism and they know it ! But it makes many people accept their lies by being told how "open" they are to "all."
