Haha I just watched an interview of a grand wizard of the KKK endorsing Donald Trump. He said he'd vote for Kasich before he would vote for Ted Cruz.

Even the KKK hates Ted Cruz.

You still want a forum filled with opinions that can't be substantiated?

Everything is welcome, just be able to support your thoughts and ideas. Why is this so hard?

that's not the moderators' job. It's not against the rules to come in here and spout off opinions.

This used to be a place of shared ideas, in other words people who thought out and could support their opinions. They had reason for their opinions. Now it's just enough to have an opinion, and being asked to substantiate that opinion is mocked.

You know what would solve this? A wall. A uuuuuge wall between deep and the rest of the forum. Trollin' Deep. Trollin' Deep. It would be just so great, the wall. it's true. And I'm gonna get @U2.com to pay for it.

If I was the mod around here... oh my god. Let's just say anyone's chances of staying would be roughly the same as a Calvinist's neighbours' of getting to heaven.

But I'm not a mod.

Getting back on topic...quoting Irvine from a few pages back:

We may be seeing the rise of white identity politics. It doesn't come from nowhere.
I'll add this, too-some of those small towns have nobody to blame but themselves for why they're dying out and struggling. Just came across this piece about a town in Nebraska:

Tiny Nebraska town says no to 1,100 jobs, citing way of life

There may be a valid argument for wanting to keep one's general "small town feel", perhaps, or legit opposition to any issues regarding smell or other health concerns a business would bring...but then I read things like this:

Quote:
The question of who would work the tough jobs was at the forefront of the debate, though many were adamant they aren't anti-immigrant. Opposition leader Randy Ruppert even announced: "This is not about race. This is not about religion."

But both were raised at the raucous April 4 meeting where the local board rejected the plant. One speaker said he'd toured a chicken processing plant elsewhere and felt nervous because most of the workers were minorities.

More overtly, John Wiegert, from nearby Fremont where two meat processors employ many immigrants, questioned whether Nickerson's plant would attract legal immigrants from Somalia — more than 1,000 of whom have moved to other Nebraska cities for similar jobs, along with people from Mexico, Central America and Southeast Asia.

"Being a Christian, I don't want Somalis in here," Wiegert, who has led efforts to deny rental housing to immigrants in the country illegally, told the crowd. "They're of Muslim descent. I'm worried about the type of people this is going to attract."
Yeeeeeeeeeeeah...

Like I said, nobody to blame but themselves.

They would actually be Muslims of Somali descent, but I digress...

The issue of the poor and inadequate educational opportunities does not discriminate.

Only the right kind of ideas? That's why we started mocking you when you over-played your hand.

False.

Then call me out for "over playing my hand" not asking for you to support your thoughts. If I was truly only going after "the wrong kind of ideas" it would be much easier to call me out on that rather than mock what is considered basic intelligent debate. You backed yourself into a corner taking that route.
