    Where the doctors and the police look like movie stars.

    Welcome. What's not to understand? We have two parties who hate each other and a President who doesn't pretend to be someone he is not. What you see is what you get.

    How about we reserve the quarrels about foreign relations until they come up as a topic? Intros is a social forum under Zone1 USMB rules. And the topic is ALWAYS --- the new member. We run off more new members with this uncivil shit than this forum is worth because folks can't calm the hell down and be social.

    Civil discussion with an emphasis on meeting and greeting new members will be enforced in this forum..

    Better possibility is the complete lack of concern for the new poster. Too many people can't stand down from the tribal skirmishes and sock accusations long enough to remember what civil discourse is. Moderation is capable of checking for socks. Especially on international members whom we WELCOME. But this whole dunderbust here is just embarrassing and runs off more new members than we welcome.

    If you SUSPECT tell us. Otherwise the topic is "The New Member"..

    I have 23 posts marked for deletion and I'm not even done yet. Two warnings issued. We WILL enforce the Zone1 civil discussion rules in this forum. Because we WANT this forum to be a place to welcome new members.

    A moderator had my prior post pulled. A gentle reminder, I actually contribute financially to the board . Nope, I don't have to be here. I can be else where. But I am not. I choose to be HERE. I respect moderators. So show me some.

    Hello. Sorry for the drama here. My great grand parents fled Deutschland. Jews converted to Christianity. I voted for Trump. Why? Wow, American culture since JFK's assassination has forever changed. Trump isn't putting people in gas chambers. Deporting illegal aliens isn't even on the same level.
