I know this is not a political forum, but really, no mention of the election at all?

Not my place to say yea or nay when it comes to your politics but I figure you folk south of the border came out of the election a whole lot better than we did with ours.

I like this forum just as it is. Probably best just to leave politics out of it.
. I have to agree. If you want to piss people off start talking politics or religion. I like that this forum is about smoking and food and helping each other out.

Over the pond here we were just to scared to mention it - in case you reminded us about Brexit!

That's the bell for round one!

Should be an interesting thread. I'll check back later.

I wasn't expecting arguments or debates...but I thought I would see some in innuendos, or civil jokes.

Wade,
Good one.

We strive to keep Politics and Religion off of the forum because it causes too much hard feelings. I think because of this most people come here to get away from that stuff.

Thumbs Up

Exactly !!!

And there's no such thing as "Civil Politics"  That should be Obvious by now.

Thanks for what you do, Brian.

What others have said about keeping this out:  I'm not missing one iota the politico robocalls day and night.  The deafening roar of silence over the last 2 1/2 days has been awesome!

I agree! I don't miss the politics here on the board. Now voting on which type of que you like better is another matter entirely! All up for that!

I'm with you on that, Ouch. I was thinking Thank God it's over (and frankly, I'm OK with how it turned out), but it just won't stop. We broke a show here in Indy tonight and by 11:00 we were smelling smoke in the convention center. There was a "protest" downtown and after the peaceful folks were done the nuts came out. No mention in the news about a fire ( just the standard rock throwing at police), but somebody lit up something.
It's not over...

Funny thing. There aren't "throwing" rocks just lying around in downtown Indianapolis.

Exactly, JJ. What I don't get is why these things are given any coverage at all. Numbers I have seen total fewer than 100K, many didn't bother to exercise their privilege to vote, and some "interviews" I've seen only want to spew foul language on live TV to mess with the censors. They "represent" only about 0.03% of the entire US population--less than those who would fill the football stadium on a Knoxville Saturday night, and this is newsworthy because? If that agitated about it, try something constructive during the day, instead of creating mayhem under the cloak of darkness. Acting like nocturnal vermin doesn't advance any cause one iota.
