Rational, measured, thoughtful discussion from the real progressive left -

This group hopes to stimulate discussion on the bread and butter issues that most affect everyday individuals and families directly.

We insist on respectful, thoughtful conversation. Dissenting and conflicting opinions and points of view are welcome. But propaganda, trolling, personal insults and attacks will not be tolerated. We are adults, so we do not want to police language. If you object to profanity, we strongly recommend the use of the profanity filter. Gratuitous profanity and name calling will not be tolerated. We don't care about political correctness. However we do insist on respect. We demand the same level of respect for members and nonmembers alike. When you are quoting facts and referencing the statements and information of others, be sure to provide the links for your quotes or you may be deleted. Adherence to the CoH is mandatory.

The goal of this group is conversation and reasons debate, not bickering or negative banter. We will do our best to maintain that decorum.

Do not harrass other commenters. If someone asks not to be commented to, do not do so. Your comment could be deleted and you could be blocked.
