    If he said 'death penalty' and you made it 'assassination' then you are putting spin on it.

    Careful with words. Words have a lot of power. Remember: The pen is mightier than the sword.

    Or, to bring that into current context, the keyboard is mightier than the assault rifle.
    His word was, "assassination." EDIT to add: I note that you mentioned assassination being illegal, but said nothing about being immoral.
    Our leaders are psychopaths.

    I don't support that.

    Should go without saying. Of course I agree it is immoral.
    Personal Ignore Policy PIP: I like civil discourse. I will give you all the respect in the world if you respect me. Flame on me, mouth off to me, or express overt racism, you go on my PERMANENT Ignore List. Zero tolerance. No exceptions. I won't participate in your threads, you will be banned from mine. ... Ignore the shallow. Cherish the thoughtful. Long Live Civil Discourse, Mutual Respect, and Good Debate! ps: if you like my PIP, feel free to use it. It works well.

    That’s why you don’t buy them on Amazon, you ask your Canadian family to bring them back. It’s a rare treat!

    Happy New Year 2019.

    Let's have a good year of political debate.

    I extend an open invitation for all to join in civil discourse.

    I also invite anyone who enjoys civil discourse, and does not want to get into petty flame wars, to adopt my PIP.

    Here is my PIP:

    Personal Ignore Policy PIP: I like civil discourse. I will give you all the respect in the world if you respect me. Flame on me, mouth off to me, or express overt racism, you go on my PERMANENT Ignore List. Zero tolerance. No exceptions. I won't participate in your threads, you will be banned from mine. ... Ignore the shallow. Cherish the thoughtful. Long Live Civil Discourse, Mutual Respect, and Good Debate! ps: if you like my PIP, feel free to use it. It works well.

    I have found, after nearly a year on the site, that my PIP works extremely well. I do not have to put up with harassment. Obviously, anybody can blindside you and make unprovoked personal attacks. But they can only do that to me once. After that, they are placed on my Ignore List, and that breaks the loop. If I were to let it go, and not place trolls on Ignore, that is tacit approval that they can continue. My PIP effectively shuts down online abuse. I neither accept nor tolerate online abuse. My posting experience here is very serene and cerebral. I talk about the issues, events and ideas.

    If most posters were to adopt my PIP, or a similar method, trolling would be marginalized. We only have to put up with what we put up with. 'Everybody' is not flaming on people. You don't have to do that to try to fit in. It is not required to 'fit in' around here. You are free to be an individual. Know that you are under no obligation to 'be tough,' or do anything you don't really enjoy. The ability to 'take it' is worthless, has no value, gets you no respect. There is no respect for being disrespectful or tolerating it. You don't have to be mean, hateful or 'tough.' It is OK to share your true feelings. It is OK to just be you. If you are not really a mean person, you don't have to come across like one in chat rooms.

    This Forum is what we the posters make it.

    We can have a trashy forum, or we can clean it up.

    I like clean.

    If you like clean, please feel free to join me.

    Also, if there is anyone who shares a desire to improve the civility of the forum, and wishes to become one of my many friends, please PM me and let's make it official.
