You will make better decisions and buy better vehicles if you keep politics out of it.

There was already one post deleted because of the political statement in it about some companies and a certain person. I will not mention that person or any companies by name. If those two companies had gone down they would have taken suppliers down, then the remaining company would not have had suppliers, foreign owned companies may have shut down here because they couldn't get parts, hundreds of thousands of Americans would have been out of work, every car and truck for sale in this country would be from other countries and how would capitalism have triumphed?

Please remember to keep politics out of it when it comes to posting on Air forums. We have a no politics policy.

Thanks!

Did you ever prove that this was an actual person? Or am I thinking of the wrong post?

Gringo, since you are thousands of miles away I cannot tell what you are thinking. If you are within 500 miles, I will be able to read your mind. I am working to increase my range.

The deleted post was up for about 6 hours I believe. It was posted, presumably, by an actual person and included a mention of a well known political figure in a way meant to criticize.

Here's the problem—discussions of policy are ok, discussions of politics are not. It is difficult to do one without sliding into the other—after all, both words have the same Latin root. Thus, let us look at polity:

"Polity
"From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

"A polity is a state or one of its subordinate civil authorities, such as a province, prefecture, county, municipality, city, or district.[1] It is generally understood to mean a geographic area with a corresponding government. Thomas Hobbes considered bodies politic in this sense in Leviathan.[2] In previous centuries, body politic was also understood to mean "the physical person of the sovereign" (in monarchies and despotisms, the emperor, king, or dictator, and, in republics, the electorate). Today, it may also refer to a representation of the ethnic or gender demographics of a region; for example, in many liberal democracies, cabinets are chosen to represent the body politic."

The meanings of these words expresses a common idea and then the three words break it down into component of that idea. There are plenty of grey areas.

Discussions of policy usually move towards politics and someone will mention a name or a political party, then the mods sweep in and poof!, it is gone. Usually the whole post goes, sometimes they edit one because it is a response to the offending one, but they don't like to edit posts because it takes too much time. The grey area is always there and members try to exploit it, some successfully. A couple more posts implied which company to support and they had a political sense to them and while these lasted longer, they are now gone. A couple of years ago there was a thread debating whether to rescue certain companies or not. It was pretty interesting and the mods moderated lightly. Sometimes it got mean, though.

I would not have a problem with a discussion of whether rescuing companies made financial sense, but it should not be in this thread. I think this one was about Ford or Tundra. I have also observed that when a thread runs its course—any possible questions have been answered it either dies, gets silly, or gets hijacked. We may be there.

I once read a mind from more than 500 miles away, but upon reflection it could have been my own.

Is rooting for football teams allowed? What if one really doesn't like the same team as the afore-unmentioned politician? this would be a disagreement with an opinion of the unmentionable, and therefore, political in nature to dislike his favorite team? Presumably, if one agrees with the unnamed's choices, this is not political?

Just trying to be sure I understand where the lines are.

man, this airstreaming is getting complicated for a newbie.

and I agree with your observations re: the end of a thread. I would just add one little bit about the 'last-word' tendency to not want to let someone else's post stand unanswered.

Is Arnold fair game now? Or is this a pair of Senators or better to open?
