There is a need when they are different appointments. But I understand you feelings. Lets try and hide one or two screw-ups and maybe it will not look as bad. And I am not some right wing nut I happen to think both parties SUCK.
Yes, I'm trying to hide Obama's screwed up appointments from the vast audience at CranfordTalk that surely have no access to outside media. Maybe I'm part of Obama's media control syndicate, getting my orders straight from the White House to make Obama's screwups not seem quite so bad to the people of the critical voting bloc of Cranford, NJ. Great theory.
Put all the appointments and all the Obama crap into one thread as long as there's one going. When in doubt, DON'T start a new thread. This is a Cranford site, and while all topics are welcome, you're not welcome to clog up the board with every one of Obama's screw ups or policy decisions every time he sneezes or has a bowel movement (hammer, I'm looking at you). Think more broadly and realize what the site's main purpose is, then you probably won't be complaining about what happens to your posts. Allowing all types of discussion on a site whose main purpose is to serve Cranford is a balancing act. If it makes it easier for you to understand, topics like what we're discussing aren't so much welcomed as they are tolerated.
