He tried that during his first term and it didn't work. He's not pushing or bullying anyone. He's standing his ground, you know like they do in Florida?
Ramming the Healthcare bill through without input from the Republicans WE voted for to represent us is "pushing" AND defying the wishing of the people to be heard through they elected to represent them.

The issue comes from both sides rose.

Alas! You finally found it. LOL!
As you can see the prohibition is not found in the Constitution or in the UCMJ - it's a 'Standing Order' that can be revoked by the President at any time.
Now that you finally found the DOD directive, tell me how that applies to a civilian like Terry?
One more time, you stoopid twit, I never said it was in the Constitution. Your memory is shot. Try looking for it in the post I claimed to be a SSG (correct abbreviation) in. Neither exists, but that seldom keeps a civilian liberal doofus from attempting to look smart.

As Romney received a little over 47% of the vote, I would not consider that as "solidly rejected". In addition, a little more than 49% of the total voters did NOT vote for Obama so he certainly did NOT win by a landslide.
Unity will not be found until they stop playing that little game "It was a mandate so stfu!"and of course they will blame those they mock for causing the problem they are making.

Senate filibuster challenged in court
By Pete Williams, NBC News justice correspondent
12/09/2012
http://nbcpolitics.nbcnews.com/_news/2012/12/...
Filibusters in the US Senate have become the parliamentary maneuver everyone loves to hate. The technique may be losing its luster, but is it unconstitutional?
A federal court in Washington on Monday takes up a legal challenge to the Senate filibuster brought by four House Democrats and the political reform group Common Cause, which calls the procedure "an accident of history, not included in the Constitution and never contemplated by its drafters." (cont.)
Interesting. You had no problem with it when the Dems used it.

You just don't get it, Ralff and are refusing to.
Topix allows a great many posters from both sides of this so-called debate, and on many other threads besides to get away with outrageously offensive, vulgar and vile comments without ever banning them. I can name some examples from these very threads.
The point is the number and intensity of reports they get from other posters, like you and whoever else reported REWBA, and I know you were not the only one. It was a group effort.
I know what I'm talking about from personal experience on these threads. I had someone and many report me repeatedly, and one even bragged about getting me banned on many occasions.
If your logic were true, YOU would have banned based on some posts you have made as would many others here. It's all about who a group decides to get rid of at the time, and how they are reported.
So, while it's true that the content of posts is a factor, the MAJOR factor is the number of reports Topix gets. They would rather get rid of all the annoying reports by banning the poster in question. You just enjoyed getting REWBA banned. It made you feel important. It's a control and power thing, and some people here think that reporting to Topix and getting someone banned is worthy of a medal and makes them a hero when all it is is snitching to Topix and nothing else.
You don't get it do you? I made one report a rewba was gone because her own words.

I really don't care where you go with it Jack.

I may be somewhat biased, but I do not consider myself cantankerous or old. Opinionated? Yes. Defensive? In some situations, yes. Pushy? Can be. Bossy? Sometimes. When you spend your entire career instructing and managing people, it is hard to break the habit. I am working on it!

I am not a mod either and do not know Topix specific rules for banning someone, but I do not agree with your theory. If that were true, posters would ban together to get people they do not like removed regularly. I would think Topix mods are required to provide an explanation to someone for banning them. I don't think that would be "I received ten complaints on your post". I would think they must indicate what was in the post which required the ban.
LOL

Well, you don't have to agree with my "theory". Topix can remove posts and ban someone for any reason. They don't have to give explanation. This is a privately owned forum.

In Rewba's case there's no doubt he violated the Tos but without ralffy's pushing and likely some others, Topix would not have bothered.

It still doesn't change that Ralffy got Rewba banned because he made a fool of him.

Whether he reported him once time or a hundred times, he did it out of spite and then bragged about it as if it was some great accomplishment.

Ralff is lame. lol

P.S.
These threads are not routinely monitored, so the only way Topix moderators even know about offensive posts is through the FEEDBACK system. In other words, unless certain posts/posters are brought to Topix attention, then wouldn't even know.
Did you know Topix used to charge posters $19.95 for a "priority review?" They would look at your report immediately as long as you paid, and you could almost be guaranteed of getting someone banned.
They did away with that stupid practice after being sued.
Truth is Topix doesn't give a rat's ass about what people post--they care about the number of users and the money, nothing else.
Amen. On the "other" ISP I use, this forum will occassionaly refuse to load because of the ads. I've had to "refresh" as many as eight times to get it to simply let me scroll.

Yep, you've done a great job as a snitch. I mean, after all, what right do people have to voice their own opinions? Good to know with whom I'm dealing. I hope you have more to offer than that.

You are the only one on these threads trying to boot anyone. Everyone else is having a conversation. That conversation is always interupted whenever you come into the room. It seems that if you are not the topic, you scream and pout until one of two things happen. Either we make you the topic of the conversation or you ger butt hurt and start crying to the mods like the beady eyed little tattle tail that you are.

"Wrong? I voted for Obama dumbazz."
Horseshit! You made up that story on January 7 - that's one day too late, leech. Up until that point you were rooting for The Mutts victory. You made up that story to justify the Obamacare teat sucking that you and your family are enjoying.
I stated who I voted for and why on election day. NTR even later commented that she believed me as my reasons were constant with what I said to her over the years in private massages. You have no evidence to the contrary. Go look it up.

You are a waste.

I don't think we were heard. Polls have shown a large majority of Americans (democratic and republican) were not for Obamacare. We also still do not know how it will really affect us. I assume my health insurance payment will go up, but I do not know.
