No matter how friendly we promise to keep it, comments like this are so far off base it makes impossible to exchange ideas.

The polls aren't even indicating he's a contender. No one really likes Joe Biden and I can't think of a single person who would vote for him.

Half of the "legal" registered voters in the US don't even vote in primaries so I'm not sure what that's about. And again, I bet lots of "illegal" people fuel horse racing so I guess you can get a new hobby.
Beam me up Scotty.
I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.

The post Som was responding to was an eye-roller for me. :roll:
And you're right; if this site allowed political threads, it could quickly get pretty ugly.
I've known forums where it was 'anything goes.' They tended to implode and disappear. :(

Shouldn't the title of the thread be "Why we don't do politics here anymore"? Because we once had a private politics board and it was quite ugly. :lol:

You should have picked out the posting she was clearly responding too, which was totally over the top. Closing this one before things get heated :P
