    I heard today that Trump kicked out a person from his rally for not being enthusiastic enough for them, sounds as if when you sit behind trump you told you have to act enthusiastic and they encourage you to wear a make America first red hat - lol

    I bet everyone on here is a paid troll for someone. Except me of course. There's just no way that people can have all these opinions and be stubborn about them without getting some phat loots. Except me of course. I can do it, for God and Country. And for free.

    Well, Turtle, then you and I are the only posters here who aren't 'paid trolls'... right? Mmm, kinda doubt that -- BUT -- isn't it INTERESTING how many FEWER people post in this Forum on Saturdays and Sundays than during the regular 'working-days' of Monday through Friday...? Seems like a fairly sizable percentage of those who congregate here may really be 'punching a time-clock' after all...(?). :confusion:

    This is one of those little 'mysteries' -- like, why it seems that fully ONE-THIRD of all the contestants on the TV show, "Wheel of Fortune" are Black... even though Blacks make up only 13.8% of the population of the United States.... :twisted:

    In my long life I've come to believe that if you are at least aware of the little things, the larger things become easier to understand....

    It's probably more likely that they get on here to kill time while at a regular job, or because they don't have other things to do during the day, or because they are busier at night. It's certainly possible that there could be some paid forum posters here, but I'd say it's impossible to determine who. I will admit though, the idea that people getting paid to post might be arguing with each other makes me chuckle.

    As far as the Wheel of Fortune thing goes, it's not like they pulling folks from a national pool of potential contestants. But it's also just as possible that their market research has indicated that more black folks watch it and it might benefit them to have a more diverse audience. Again, who knows, without an admission of some kind from someone in-the-know.

    I -hope- the trolls get paid for their nonsense -- I'd hate to think they actually believe the poo they put up.

    Here's the thing about partisan gamesmanship. The GOP has always been leaps and bounds ahead of the Dems in innovating ways to play the system. Thry were the first party to really treat the filibuster as a daily norm and not an exceptional measure. They were the first to threaten govt shutdown. They led the partisan news push with Ailes and Fox long before CNN went from center to wacky left. They were making kinky gerrymandered districts and disenfranchising poor and minority voters long before the left started biting back with buses to polls. And on and on. Both parties lie, but the right does it with no respect for your ability to reason. Their lies are shockingly obvious and not well masked, unlike the left that goes to great lengths to argue and rationalize their BS.

    So if the left is doing something to kink things, rest assured, the right was doing it first, they do it better, and the left still has a lot of ground to make up.

    Umm... No.

    Leftist control of the media narrative is what led to the creation of Fox.

    Silly gossip. I went to a Trump rally and nobody was kicked out for any reason - of course there were no DNC hecklers 3 days before the election, either.

    $1k to disrupt a rally isn't that much, plus they had unpaid interns also doing it.

    Revisionist history. The fairness doctrine was abandoned in the late 80s right around the same time as the birth of Sky News, which was the original blueprint for Fox News. At the time, major networks were required to give balanced coverage to all sides. Fox entering the cable news world was the first to really break that mold. And beyond the fairness doctrine, there were still other rules of fair play in news coverage being enforced for at least another decade that the networks stuck to, while the cable channels (led by Fox) did not.

    Revisionist history would be thinking that the media was fair during the fairness Doctrine days. All the fairness Doctrine was good for was censoring political speech entirely. Most TV and media at the time avoided talking politics completely.

    course if you saw would you excuse it anyways? or do you think it would be bad if true?

    Maybe a few years ago when PF had a ton of Russian trolls. That's clearly changed over the years as many of them have been nowhere to be found. Now it's paid DNC ones. I see you're new here....
