    2. Two balls allowed on the first tee. Player is allowed to use the better of the two.
    3. Player is entitled to an acceptable lie if ball comes to rest in the fairway. E.g., if ball is in a divot player may bump the ball half a card length to a better position in the fairway. This rule also applies to any unacceptable lie in the fairway.
    4. Removing the pin from the hole is optional when putting from the green.
    5. Walking is mandatory unless use of cart is required.
    6. Minimum of one pint of beer must be consumed upon completion of play.
    My group is all at 15 or more. We seldom use a mulligan, but we turn the ball over everywhere, even in the rough. No moving out of trouble, though. No distance and stroke; carry as many clubs as you want; I prefer pin out, but pin in is okay. Rake and place in the traps.

    I cannot drink beer on course, because I would fall asleep. Brandy is okay, but I seldom partake. A joint or two was almost always a must when I was less than 70.

    Since I work for golf operations, I get free golf with a cart. I use the cart these days...free is too much to resist. Until my late 60's...I walked always...carrying my bag (single strap)...and often played 36 or 54!

    I was nuts! My main partner is even nuttier. One year...in his late 60's, he played 325 rounds in New Jersey...18 per day. If you know what the weather is like here...you realize that is almost insane.

    Good point. However, Christiecrite says Desh is "normal and decent", and some DEMOCRATS claim that Trump made it possible for crazy people to get guns, don't they?

    Besides that, Desh has threatened to kill people before. I'm not sure, but I don't think she was panning to use a lawn chair.

    I'm 71 and should be chilling, but instead, all of my baby-boomer, 60's kid issues are burning me up.

    The hardest debates are always with other progressive liberals.

    Debate requires stipulation.

    If two people want a similar kind of world, they might reasonably debate the means to get there.
    They may get passionate about their views.

    Today's conservatives and liberals have absolutely nothing to debate.
    They want to live in totally different worlds.
    If you want totally different things, there's nothing to debate.
    It's us and them, not right and wrong. There's no way to conclude whether chocolate or strawberry ice cream is better. You just go for the one that you want.
    We're no longer political opponents; now we're ideological enemies.

    Moderation is for the consumption of adult beverages. Politics are about passion. In a polarized society, the energy is at the poles. Centrism is now irrelevant.

    The male anatomy is not designed to be comfortable straddling a fence.

    But now, it's worse than ever. I don't speak to people who've been friends for forty or fifty years. I have cousins who are dead to me. Five fellow retirees and I have had a standing breakfast date, once a month, since we retired more than a decade ago. Politics have recently broken it up.

    I'm not an Evangelical Christian. I don't believe in salvation by faith alone. That's an excuse to be a bastard in the temporal world.
    People who voted for Trump stuck a rusty dagger in America's liver, and therefore in mine. That's irredeemable. Not for some imaginary afterlife, but for being accepted in decent society right now.
    well that’s fucked up. Show what JPP’s reputation is when other sites send their crazies here.

    Oh well welcome aboard. You’re in good company here.

    But politics decide how we live.

    We can each make a sincere, honest evaluation of our respective consciences only to discover that our core values are completely incompatible.
    At that point, the basis for a close relationship simply doesn't exist.
    Oh quit being a drama queen Nifty. If I were alienated from friends and family cause the did something stupid like drink and drive, cheat on their spouse, lie about their handicap, drink red wine with fish or vote for Trump Iíd be one lonely mother fucker.

    Lighten up and smell the horse shit!

    Judging by her vile posts, maybe she could kill them with her breath?

    That was a great schtick.

    The left is intolerant? Hey you try going to a NASCAR race wearing an Abbey Hoffman t-shirt and drinking something other than Budweiser than come back here and tell me how intolerant the left is. Iím lucky I excaped with my life.

    Wishy is all right. Many on the left and right here are driven by anger are incapable of intelligent conversations. Wishy isnít one of them.

    And the asshole drives golf carts across greens, because he owns them.
    I know, right?

    Indicative that he thinks the rules don't apply to him.

    Like he thinks rules are for other people, but he is special.

    The same way he walked right into the teen girls dressing room of the Miss USA Pageant.
