    The Civil NA Politics Thread

    So this is going to be my desperate attempt to have something resembling a pleasant political thread on here because I'm very tired of lots of people skirting the line in the Trump thread, myself included! It's time to hold all of us to a higher standard.

    This is our new thread on politics (not just Trump, because other stuff happens there too, yay). This is also going to be a strongly policed thread for personal attacks. Anything, I repeat, anything, said in this thread should either be about politics, or a respectful engagement of someone else's political take. Personal attacks will not slide in this thread as they did in the one before it, even the most "harmless" of them. If you think you shouldn't say it, don't say it, because I'm gonna drop infractions until everyone figures out what discourse looks like.

    Keep it topical. Disagree with views, not people. Have fun?

    Can we just make it a political thread in general instead of just making it about the US?

    Well if we're talking about worldwide politics, I would like to say that Trump calling himself stable is probably about as meaningful as the current Conservative UK government describing themselves as stable.

    I like the title of this thread way better than the last one. Way less nauseating for some reason.

    I don't like how he's trying to be all buddy- buddy with Iran lately.

    There's a Chrome Extension called "Make Trump's Tweets Eight Again" that turns all of his Tweets into this:

    But to be understood, arguments are still allowed, no? Constructive, non personal, view based arguments. In an attempt for good conversation and learning.
    Everything will surely be alright.

    That laptop needs a tossing for failing you, Sayer. You should not tolerate such a mockery.

    Also, that was only going to be in one specific thread. Not in every thread.

    We probably shouldn't have said anything and just let Sayer get banned...

    They laid waste to our land, they took it from our hand
    From Atlanta to Savannah, they scorched our earth
    They stole our corn and wheat, they left no food to eat
    They slaughtered all the cattle, took the things of worth
    Well, we got women and children too
    Just the same as you
    Ain't it enough just to know that you got us beat

    The hatred will never cease, even now that there's peace
    The feelings will run as deep as the scars we bear
    This ain't cloth we wear it's a rag, we're at the mercy of the carpetbag
    What you call justice is plain unfair
    How the hell can you ever claim
    It's been worth all of the pain
    Just to have us live together under one flag
