Players well being does largely depend on their political leaders. I don't see how you can separate the two.
While it is possible to take "Trump trashing" personally, especially if you voted for him, there is a difference between criticising the actions (or inactions) of political leaders and personally abusing someone for their opinions.
The former is a right of a free society, the latter serves no purpose in a constructive conversation.
And when it comes to this election in November, BOTH parties are doing their best to shake the people's faith in the democratic process, and BOTH must be held accountable for it.
I was introduced to this video (I even have a DVD of it) many years ago. Forgot all about until I recently did some "spring cleaning". I think it is as relevant today............
It's the story of a place called Mouseland. Mouseland was a place where all the little mice lived and played, were born and died. And they lived much the sam...
I love it.
Very funny, thank you.
Hello, I 100% agree. Could we please post the political comments some where else? Perhaps where CzoeMC suggested.
I think you are all a bit too sensitive, as Mpendo said politics is all around us and rules all our lives, like it or not. Also, we should all respect and thank the creator of this site, Jenifer, and not be so squeamish as to what is posted here.
You are so correct. Politics are all around us. I hope to escape it when I go to the MC Forum. Being too sensitive is a description hardly ever used in describing me. Plus, I do very much appreciate all the work that went into and still goes into this site. Perhaps a new Discussion titled POLITICS could be added to Friends, Fletcher's Tea Room etc. You get what I am suggesting. Also, stop with the lecturing.

For me this forum is an escape from everyday stress. I thought at one point we were directed to Coalition of the Confused if we wanted to discuss something lively or controversial. Politics in the Welcome! folder is not likely to make people feel Welcome.
Thanks for your input You have given me something to think about. Politics in the Welcome folder could and would scare folks away. Perhaps it should be in Coalition of the Confused. I do not know.. I am not going to discuss the anything political ." Maybe the Powers that Be" can pass the word. Me, I will just stay away.
My state sent mail in ballots to everyone for the primary election. It was a great failure. Many people received ballots for the wrong district. Not because the state screwed up but because the individual hadn't updated their voter registration, driver's license, or vehicle registration when they moved. People younger than the legal age received ballots because all people are automatically registered to vote when they get a driver's license. Their age is checked at the polling location when they vote. There were a small number of polling stations open to accommodate people who may not have received a ballot but that number was very low and again because people hadn't update their information and there was no valid forwarding order. There were drop boxes everywhere for the mail in ballots. The ballots came with an individual code so you could verify that yours was received and counted. About 16% of voters didn't get a usable ballot. In Washington, DC 1/3 of voters didn't get a ballot at all. To prevent some of these problems, everyone must request a mail in ballot, go to a polling place, or go to early voting. We all received a request for mail in ballots to fill out and return. Hopefully these steps will help with people who have failed to update their address.
I have an attorney friend who worked election law for New Jersey. In some counties, mail in election fraud was as high as 50%. It has increased since she retired.
According to several NIH short strand RNA virus researchers, all of the current COVID-19 tests are pointless. None of them are properly tested for validity and the best test, which is the nasopharyngeal swab PCR run immediately, has a false positive rate of at least 12%. Generally speaking PCR tests should be run only when there are compatible symptoms.
