After a lot of consideration, USMB Staff has decided to try an alternate format for this Front Page forum. The purpose of having a Front Page Forum is to attract new eyes and views and have something fresh, informative and up to date in that spot.

Got to credit Lucy Hamilton for asking about a "Breaking News" forum, because that's what prompted this experiment. We do fine with breaking news threads in their own relevant forums right now, but it's a convenient way to give us better recruitment "advertising" on the Front Page.

So here's the outline of the "experiment". Any Poster may choose to place a "Breaking News" story in that forum SUBJECT TO the rules provided below. You don't HAVE to place such threads in THIS forum. You can still put them in appropriate forums. If there's a thread in the Home Page forum on this news flash, we MAY consolidate threads from lower forums to the Front Page forum when a story breaks -- especially if they started in another Zone2 forum. Posters should put EXTRA effort into preparing the OP. Wait 5 minutes or whatever's necessary to get adequate details. Include as much as you can. Multiple Links or Pics PREFERRED. Rules for that forum will be as follows:

1) Zone2 Rules

2) OP must be about news no older than 24 hours when posted. News can be about any broad interest subject.

3) Story must be linked to at least one major news outlet, newspaper or periodical. Other secondary links encouraged.

4) Members should include the Breaking News: prefix in front of the Title. (Admin may do this automatically for us -- so check current usage.)

5) Moderation reserves the right to move and place in a more appropriate forum. OR to move brand new threads to this Front Page forum..

6) Keep the conversations on the news topic as details comes in. Serious derailments will result in closure. And try to NOT extend the conversations much past the point where it's no longer "breaking".

Realize that during the...

One can always bank on the bull shitting more than once.

Senate Democrats Investigate a New Allegation of Sexual Misconduct, from the Supreme Court Nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s College Years

Were I Grassley, I would cancel any hearing and go for the vote tomorrow.

Fuck those people.

Well well well, looks like it the pot calling the kettle black. It's time for these two to SHUT UP and STEP UP.
Anti-Kavanaugh voices Hirono, Feinstein took campaign cash from Dem colleague who admitted hitting his wife
U.S. Sen. Mazie Hirono, who told men to “just shut up and step up” in the wake of sexual misconduct allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, might have some explaining to do about her campaign cash.

Data show that Hawaii's Hirono has taken money from a fellow Democrat who has admitted hitting his wife.

U.S. Sen. Tom Carper’s First State PAC donated $1,000 to Hirono’s political campaign in June, despite the Delaware lawmaker’s confession of abuse.

This midterm election in November 2018 may determine the direction for humanity and civilization under God. This is why I believe the Almighty is giving individuals the opportunity to vote for the purpose of ensuring the well being of society and humanity. This includes giving Congress the cleansing it has a long time due when it comes to purging as many GOPers and blue dogs (fake democrats) out of there as possible in order to give the Blue Wave change a chance. Nows is not the time to be complacent but vote!
