If Trump gets the peace prize he'll probably have to share it with Rocket Man.

Entirely agree with one thread for Trump. 42 wants to play the theist's trick of running parallel threads causing absolute chaos.

Meanwhile the first amendment for his staff is being removed:

Trump administration removes language on freedom of the press from Justice Department handbook
New sections require employees to disclose any contacts with the media
His paranoia knows no bounds.

This shitarse keeps on giving:

International Paralympics Committee berates Donald Trump for saying games are 'tough to watch'
US president 'makes a mockery of himself yet again', says Miami Beach mayor
WTF

I think this is ridiculous. It seems to me he was referring to the fact that he doesn't have much time to watch things other than Fox News on the tele.

There are too many damn Trump threads as it is. It's hard to keep track of them all. We only need one, really. Or one for serious and one for humor.
They're all Trump bashing threads, which are fine.

It doesn't hurt anyone to have another thread.

The issue is that some people want to control the discussion here. There is absolutely no good reason why a thread dedicated to the possibility of a Nobel Prize for the President would be disallowed. It's relevant. It's newsworthy, it's political, it's a current event. It's also going to be an ongoing discussion because the President will be meeting with Kim Jong Un and it will be a lengthy process toward peace or war, if any, and it will be a contentious issue as to whether the prize committee would see fit to award him the prize under any circumstances.

We had a thread about the Nobel Prize aspect of the previous President, and it didn't present too much of a burden on this thread, and that's when there was actually a large population of posters here.

It's really ridiculous that people can create hosts of nonsense threads about anything and everything, and it doesn't matter, but because some people here have a hard-on for Donald Trump, we have to make sure discussions don't get beyond a slew of Trump bashing and insults.
What's ridiculous is your obsessive need to balance the forum so that there are as many pro-Trump threads as there are anti-Trump threads, and as many anti-Hillary threads as there are anti-Trump threads.

The forum doesn't need a new thread every time Trump does something. You're the only one who wants 800 Trump threads. The mods have decided that they don't want Trump spam all over the forum, so you're just going to have to suck it up, snowflake.
If you weren't so ridiculously wrong, I'd agree with you. I haven't tried to create many Trump threads. And, there certainly are not as many pro-Trump threads as anti-Trump threads. Pro trump threads get merged into the anti-Trump threads. There also are not as many anti-Hillary Threads as anti-Trump threads.

also, there doesn't have to be - I don't care about "balance." I just wanted a thread I could talk about a specific issue in - with people who were interested in that issue.

What bugs me is not a lack of "balance." What bugs me is that CERTAIN people here seem to want to not only control what they themselves read and talk about, but also want to control what other members read and talk about.

Nobody is trying to spam the forum. A few threads here and there about timely, political issues will not destroy the forum.

And, you can fuck off with the "snowflake" bullshit. Talking about policies is not against the rules here either, but namecalling is.
“When I was in college, I took a terrorism class. ... The thing that was interesting in the class was every time the professor said ‘Al Qaeda’ his shoulders went up, But you know, it is that you don’t say ‘America’ with an intensity, you don’t say ‘England’ with the intensity. You don’t say ‘the army’ with the intensity,” she continued. “... But you say these names [Al Qaeda] because you want that word to carry weight. You want it to be something.” - Ilhan Omar

Somebody seems to have reached him. A trade war with the EU does not appear desirable to him:

Trump postpones decision over EU tariffs, staving off potential trade war
White House extends Europe’s exemption from tariffs on steel and aluminum, which was due to expire on Tuesday
All mouth once again.

Seabass,

We would also like to stress that, in this respect, yours and every member's obligations are not to the rules themselves, nor even to the moderation team, but first-and-foremost to one's fellow forum members.

Please try and keep this in mind when posting in future,

How about Putin? Give him the Nobel Pee Prize. He has put Trump under restraints.

I'm not sure that's a legit photo. I think that might be photoshopped. :tea:
