Ok, I think we need a dedicated thread for this.
Please do not assign blame to political parties, or look at from political viewpoints of the parties in the U.S. or elsewhere for that matter. The management of this place doesn't want such discussions. That type of discussion should be by PM.
I *think* criticism of the government actions and behavior would be fair play, as long as we aren't going on about Republicrats being blamed for this, that or the other thing.
If management disagrees, feel free to nuke this thread.
On the other hand, perhaps management can move the discussions from the bonehead and pet peeve threads among others here?
