AND

You agree that if any clause or component of this document is found to not be legally binding in a court of law of proper jurisdiction then the remainder of this document shall remain fully binding and in full force.

AND

You agree to NOT hold Jelsoft Enterprises Ltd. (makers of the forum software), uspoliticsonline.com, sites affiliated with uspoliticsonline.com, its administrators, its moderators, others associated with its operation, and its owners liable for any and all of the following (in whole or in part):
Personal insults/attacks by other members.
The content posted by other members, whether directed at you personally or a label/classification you associate with. This includes remarks you consider to be libelous or slanderous in any way.
Any financial or time loss due to your participation here or as a result of something you read at this site, including posts/PMs by other members and feature(s)/software available at the domain uspoliticsonline.com.

You are prohibited from using your real name on these forums, either as your username or in posts / PMs you write.

FORUM RULES, IN ADDITION TO THE DISCLAIMER

1. These rules apply to all sections of USPOL, including public and private forums, blogs, and visitor messages.

2. You cannot attack and/or personally insult someone. You cannot bait other forum members; this includes referring to posters by derogatory terms. 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 shouldn’t 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.

7. You cannot shout in posts. This includes posting in all CAPS, bold, lIkE tHiS, and extra large font. Posts should also be one color, although you may use an additional color for highlighting ideas you wish to address.

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.

PRIVACY POLICY

All information obtained by the end user via the registration process is for internal purposes only and will not be sold to or shared with any third parties. However, if the end user participates in illegal activities and a court of proper jurisdiction orders U.S. Politics Online to release certain information about said user then we will act according to the law. Furthermore, no information will be released on threat of a lawsuit, attempted or actual intimidation, or due to any other reason except as notated in the first sentence of this paragraph. Nonetheless, keep in mind that the information we do have is very limited and generally only consists of the IP address a member uses.

SUBSCRIPTIONS

U.S. Politics Online offers several subscription plans to help cover the operational costs of the site. As a thank you for your donation, you will receive special added benefits meant to enhance your U.S. Politics Online experience. Plans vary in price, starting at only $0.05/day, and benefits vary with the price. Benefits include ability to go straight to new posts, to search the forum, larger avatar, private forums, invisible mode, photo gallery, email, web hosting, and no advertisement banners.

      Calling the president what ? Racist ?

      Why yes, he is probably the most racist person to ever occupy the Whitehouse as president in this (maybe the last too) century.

      We'd have to give a big congrats to all the americans who only voted for this guy because he was NOT WHITE .... thinking it was such a wonderful opportunity to prove that racism was dead and gone in America.

      Then finally mr Obama showed his true colors to all of us LOL How many times has this obama fellow wagged his tongue and showed us his true colors ?

      Many.

      Which is why mr Obama gets away with anything he wants too. Only a "racist" would oppose this special case fascist.

      So we tolerate it thinking we're .... what ?

      I don't know the answer to this.

          So I say "we" picked this sad sack obongo, to point out the mass laziness and stupidity of "the majority." It isn't JUST our criminal and out of control "govt" we should be worried about. It's also the moronic "majority" of Americans - including the purposefully imported people from other nations who are tools of the democratic party - VOTING tools.

          You're not alone feeling like you now live in a dictatorship . . mr obama is going to take another "executive action" soon on guns. He is Americas first "black president" so he can do any thing he wants and NO ONE will try to stop him.

          It is an insane time we're living in. God willing, we'll get through it with as little hardship as possible. . but I'm not betting on it.


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

          My elected representatives represent no one but themselves. ....

          It is all too obvious that our most unrepresentative of representative governments neither knows us nor respects us. They despise us. It is too much to ask us not to despise them in return.
          [and we do]

          ....

          I am tired of living in the dumping ground for whatever group of hostile immigrants the social engineers in Washington import to ease their guilty consciences. Let them move their Mexican underclass and angry Syrian colonists to Martha’s Vineyard or Marin County north of San Francisco. Maybe this would help our legislators and “opinion makers” alleviate a bit of their never-ending narcissistic angst. I am tired of nameless, self-righteous bureaucrats levering open the restrooms of my local schools to the confused transvestites that a liberal education churns out, then lecturing me about tolerance and individual rights. Where is their tolerance of my culture? Where is their respect for my rights? Where is the brotherly concern shown to my neighbors? I am tired of living in an ill-planned social experiment. Of taboo words and taboo ideas. I am tired of being called a racist by people who are, themselves, the worst of racists -- and who have denuded the word itself of any meaning.

          ...

          Although I may not especially like the erratic, often juvenile Mr. Trump, it isn’t lost on me that he at least doesn’t hold me in contempt. He may make war on illegal immigration and Muslim fundamentalism, but most of the alternatives are making war on me.

          Well, I can tell Michele Obama that this is the first time in my life, I've felt shame in being an America. That's why being combined in the WE irritates me so much. I know what you meant by WE. I just automatically feel compelled to point out that I have no association with America with the culture of today that is endorsed by our leaders.

          I no longer consider America a WE. One nation undivided. I see it as us and them. Two separate sects, with two different cultures. Conservatives and liberals. Don't really know what a Democrat or Republican party is anymore. Or what they represent.

          I believe if I were in another country and had to state my nationality, I would no longer answer American, not with pride anyway. I believe I would answer constitutional American. That's what I am. If you're not a constitutional American. You're not an American at all. And no Republican or Democrat in Washington, or citizen liberal is a constitutional American, meaning they are not American at all. It makes me cringe to be associated with them and I must differentiate. I need to point out that I am an ACTUAL American. Not what they THINK an American is today.

          So the WE I belong to, is the WE, that know Obama Care is nothing but a Crime, being presented as law. A farce! Obama cash, not Obama care. No care involved as a transition in the country as a mass.

            So explain how calling Mr. obongo Obama ... I mean mr Obama obongo is "racist."

            ... wait, I think I see it !!

            Yes !!

            Yes !! I see it now !!!

            Why I had no idea what a bonehead racist I was being when I made fun of Bush by calling him Shrub. When I called Hilary hill-o-beans.

            If you make fun of peoples names - phonetically or spelling etc - in ANY way I guess ... it's Racist !!

            What a clever deal.

            It's also probably "hate speech" that can get one thrown in jail ... or put in front of the fascist liberal firing squad too.

            We'll keep this in mind now.

              I understand where you're coming from and agree 100%

              They've achieved the goal of dividing us . . . because keeping us divided and angry is good for one thing.

              THEM !

              They don't represent us.

              They represent only themselves. It's all about keeping themselves rich and in power !!

              Us ... ? Divided, angry, confused & impotent - because it's good FOR THEM. Now they can "help us solve our 'problems'" some more.

              ... of course, ... it'll cost ya !

                  I guess I don't get it either. Is Obongo some sort of racist term? Many called Bush President Shrub, was that racist too?

                  מה מכילות החדשות?


                  • Lets see. Maybe it's because there's a bongo in there. .. bongo drums ... I looked around at the origins of bongo drums and read that they are associated as Cuban and African:

                    Cuba is famous for bongos but they may actually have originated in Africa. Bongos are two small open-ended drums that are joined together. Each drum is a different size so you can produce different notes with each side.

                    Maybe it's because there's a bong in it ? You can google "obama likes marijuana" and come up with a lot of images that show he probably did use a bong on occasion. He certainly smoked a joint or three in his time LOL Maybe that's racist ..

                    Some pretty weak associations to somehow make this a racist deal I think.

                    Well I guess it doesn't matter. Weak accusations like "racism," "Sexism," "homophobia" ..

                    ..it's what we do if we disagree with anothers beliefs or politics now. Interesting how it seems to be those of the liberal ideology that regularly rely on these kinds of weak accusations.

                    I wonder why that is ?

                      If you seriously have no idea here's why it's racist.
                      Africa has been called "Bongo, Bongo land" as a derogatory fashion for a long long time so Obongo really is pretty darn racist.
                      I'd google it to show you but I really don't want that term anywhere near my history.

                      To be honest I'm as in the dark about "Shrub" as you are about Obongo.
                      The only thing shrub means to me is the young plant but how that relates to the Former president I have no idea? Was he well known as a gardener as that literally all I can come up with and I'm still in the dark as what's bad about being a gardener?

                      Maybe this isn't the same in the US but plenty of people in the UK use gardening as a great relaxing (while at the same time being hard work) pastime that doesn't really have negative connotations and if anything it's usually seen positively.

                        • OMD asked why I said why I think the term is racist and as he honestly didn't seem to know I told him why.

                          Maybe it isn't seen as racist in the US but in the UK calling him Mr Obongo is likely to get you kicked out of whatever establishment you're in and most likely banned. It's about as racist as it gets.

                          • Just googled it.

                            In British English, Bongo Bongo Land (or Bongo-bongo Land) is a pejorative term used to refer to Third World countries, particularly in Africa, or to a fictional such country.
                            The origin of the term is unclear but it may come from one of the following:
                            • bongo drums, as (inaccurately) supposed to be played by African natives[1]
                            • a parody of African place-names or languages
                            • Um Bongo, a fruit flavoured soft drink
                            • Omar Bongo, a former president of Gabon
                            There is a reference to "Bongoland" in the English translation by Ellen Elizabeth Frewer of a book originally in German, by Georg August Schweinfurth, published in 1874 in English as The Heart of Africa.[2] The 1947 song Civilization by Bob Hilliard and Carl Sigman, recorded by various artists, contained the line "Bongo, Bongo, Bongo, I Don't Want to Leave the Congo". A variation of this was adopted for a poster produced by the fascist Union Movement bearing the chant "Bongo, bongo, whites aren't going to leave the Congo".[3]
                            The term has featured in political controversies. Alan Clark, while Conservative Member of Parliament for Plymouth Sutton, once, in a departmental meeting, allegedly referred to Africa as "Bongo Bongo Land".[4][5] When called to account, however, by then Prime Minister John Major, Clark denied the comment had any racist overtones, claiming it had simply been a reference to the President of Gabon,Omar Bongo.[6]
                            Taki Theodoracopulos called Kenya "bongo-bongo land" in his Spectator column. The Guardian later criticized his use of "offensive and outdated stereotypes".[7]
                            In July 2013, Godfrey Bloom, Member of the European Parliament for Yorkshire and the Humber for the United Kingdom Independence Party (UKIP) was filmed referring to countries which receive overseas aid from the United Kingdom as "Bongo Bongo Land".[8] UKIP later banned use of the term, and while Bloom refused to apologise for his remarks,[9] he later stated that he regretted "any genuine offence which might have been caused."[10] A spokesperson from Show Racism the Red Card stated that Bloom's remarks were: "crude stereotypes that see Britain as a civilised place and overseas as tribal".[11] Matthew d'Ancona wrote in the Daily Telegraph: "There may indeed be some who inwardly cheered Bloom’s choice of words. But there will be many – including, crucially, some who agree with his position on aid – who felt queasy at the use of such antediluvian language."[12]

                            • One of the downsides of conservative, neocons, neoliberals return to power is that they brought with them, but perhaps it was their Billy Bob Bubba voters, the loss of civility and good manners when speaking of the president of the united states. The rhetoric became hateful, and course, as they patted one another on the back, and held contests who could exhibit the greatest lack of respect for other human beings who did not share their ideologies. Obama, has perhaps been the biggest target of these people, who delight in rudeness, coarseness, and a lack of good manners.

                              It proliferated when the FCC was deregulated, and conservative radio hosts seem to be in competition to see who could exhibit the worst possible manners in talking about democrats. They wear the lack of civility in public discourse like some badge, deserving praise.

                              That such people would find it a good thing to act like uneducated bores is just another illustration of the loss of moral civility and amongst a group of people who claim to be moral Christians.

                                A good point you make.

                                However, one must ask ... are 'manners' more important than truth - than telling the truth ?

                                Is it really preferable to have crimes perpetrated against us by people with "good manners" ?

                                Do criminals get our 'respect' because they speak sweet words to us ... while we ignore those warning us - maybe not always using sweet language & words ... ?

                                There's a writing in scripture about a being who spoke lies with smooth words to sell destruction.

                                Must we ALWAYS fall for this ? Accept our own destruction, because those selling it are "sophisticated & polite" ?

                                I'm not defending coarse and rude language, but it seems like quite a stretch to try to place most of this phenomenon onto conservatives. Hillary Clinton comes to mind ... she has a quite a foul mouth on her....
