    Automatic needless criticism of a non-inflammatory post by SouthBeach.

    Here's how you could have posted, but in a more friendly way:
    "This post is interesting, here are my thoughts...... Thanks for taking time out of your day for post things I find interesting."

    Or, in the event this post was not of interest, you could have always just skipped on to the next one.

    Automated headline and link copy and paste Metta unit: Let me show how you could have posted the same thing, but in a DISCUSSION-friendly format, as opposed to what a forum spamming machine would do:

    Hello RJ members,

    I just found an interesting article from the excellent news source The New York Times on the internet. I (agree / disagree) with the content of the story. What do the rest of you think about the content of the story?

    I look forward to discussing what you thought of this story with all of you.

    Here is a link to the story:

    southbeach1500 saidDemocrats are the party of big government. I just want to control where you post what you post, what you say in what you post, and how you express what you say. If you do not comply with how I think you should live your life, I intend to stalk and bully and beat you down. Other than that, what's with those Democrats and their big government?

    Southbeach never contributes his opinions either. He just heckles liberals and cuts and pastes anti-Obamacare propaganda.

    How do you tell when a politician is lying?




    When his (her) lips are moving.

    It seem to me "If you like your health care plan you can keep it" should have earned Obama more pants-on-fire points. Not sure I believe the numbers in the chart.

    I'm not sure the president lied about this. He certainly may have. I think he was wrong about it. I don't think Obama would have been so arrogant to repeatedly publicly lie about something so easily verifiable. He certainly may have.

    The Bush family are absolute nazi's, that is fact, the Clintons are totally criminal and are only in politics for their own gains and are in cahoots with the Bush family and they help each other out for each others gains, they do not care about the people at all and should be hauled up in front of a judge and tried for war crimes, Obama also works on their behalf and is passing laws without consulting the people and the CIA are training ISIS forces to unhinge the middle east to bring in a one world government, but first they need to kick off a 3rd world war and take everybody's rights away which they are trying now, shooting down Russian planes and goading Putin into war. He doesn't want it, he is trying to stop this one world government crap.
    Vote for Trump, he actually cares for your country and doesn't want a war.
