Duggars, Jeb, The Donald, GOP clown car, Clinton.    

Why aren't we talking about ANY of these things.  I fear the "Political Joe" has evolved into decaf.

Because we all have come to agreement on everything and there is nothing to discuss .

Yeah there have been a few things I looked to see a a thread on and nothing. GOP has too many people running for president and Democrats have not enough. I wonder though is it a super pac thing. GOP gets a lot of money for them so best to get in and get some of that money. Since the candidate can not tell the pac what to do if your not seriously running is there a way to personally profit off a super pac? Then again someone has to win it and if your not in it you can not win it. Never know who is going to start rallying around you I guess.

Of the top 10 political donors in 2012, 8 of them gave almost exclusively to Democrats.

That can't be true - everyone knows that the Koch brothers are buying all of the elections.  Koch Industries is 48th on that list with at least 15 unions ranked higher.

Its called dark money for a reason. We are not allowed to know who is donating what anymore. That would bad for the donors.

Nah - a more correct statement would be that this is what all "chat" boards have become.  It's all FB, twitter, snapchat, etc. now........this format is a dinosaur.  I still enjoy it, but I'm a dinosaur too compared to the folks who really stay on the front end of things.

And worse for freedom of speech....And while we are at it, we can open the curtains to voting booth. The public needs to see how you vote. We wouldn't want you to "accidentally" check the wrong box by mistake and upset the community organizer.

I guess that's part of it.  I don't tweet, snap, instagram, or Facebook.  I'll send a text or two but I don't really get it.  I'd rather talk.  These types of boards are about as advanced as I care to be.

You are all aging yourselves terribly. 

And LB, you need to get your son an official instagram for his new pro career. I'm only half joking.  Pro's ain't making money from wins, they make it from sponsors.  Bigger social media following means you are more marketable.

He's actually done a pretty good job keeping his social media sites clean and almost only for his sports.  He's pretty happy with his one and only sponsor.....but the payoff to the company from sponsoring him is so far not panning out. 

College visits start next month so there is still hope that the company will see a profit from sponsoring him.

One thing I love about BT is the mix of people on here.  Almost every other discussion outlet I have is filled with like minded folks which kind of sucks.  I've changed my views on several things over the years due to these forums.  You guys are still wrong on some things, but hey nobodies perfect.  haha

I sort of hope Kim Davis goes to jail again, if only so that I can listen to Mike Huckabee explain how the Supreme Court is violating the Constitution by perfoming the exact role that the Constitution says they're supposed to perform. I wore out the "rewind" button on my remote trying to sort that one out.

I'm actually with you on this one. Kim Davis is just wrong, period.  When you fulfill a public role you have to follow the laws of that position.  If she doesn't agree personally with a new law she has every right to resign from her position and let somebody else do it.

Then for politicians to take it and run like she's being persecuted for her religious liberties etc etc just makes them look silly.  She's being persecuted for not doing the job she was appointed/elected (not sure which) to do.

Her position is elected.  That's the only reason she still has it.

Here's the thing - she wasn't even thrown in jail for failure to do that job.  It was for contempt of court.  If a judge tells you to do something and you think he's wrong, *you appeal*.  If you ignore him, well, no surprise what'll happen next.  But I wouldn't be surprised if she's getting some sort of kickback from one of the many organizations that are trying to make a martyr out of her.

I think you know about how I feel on these topics =).

If you hold a public office you have to obey the laws of the land.  This is where there should be a different (I have no idea what) process to remove people from elected office.  From what I understand (and its not much) of KY law is that it would be difficult to do so.

This is a very good point.  Not sure if you made it in the other thread and I just missed it?

It went from talking to real people, to message boards, to FB, to 140 (or less?) characters in twitter, to basically just a quick picture with 30 character heading in snapchat.  It's more flash updates than real substance or conversation these days.  So be it if that's the trend.  It will pass, as most things do...
