    I saw some relevance because policy affects personal financial decisions, the ACA (and healthcare), social security, and so on and on. I saw the relevance as it affects environmental policy (which is a subforum but not one getting almost any traction for awhile). So politics is just going to manifest anyway I figured. But almost none of those issues are ACTUALLY ones discussed on public policy much anyway it turns out.
    If you want something to get done, ask a busy person. If you want them to have a nervous breakdown that is.

    The Public Policy Forum has always been the place where things were most likely to get a bit heated, but that being said, I do think people are pretty civil most of the time. I guess I would recommend keeping out of that one if you are very thin-skinned. I try to avoid being snarky or offensive because people here don't really know me and I might not get the same benefit of the doubt for overall good intentions as I might from those who know and love me in real life.
    I feel terrible that Tammy and Geila were hurt, but I also don't see that anything so very bad was said. I think people in general might be feeling a bit more fragile right now, and we would do well to keep that in mind.

    My priority is my diving. Not politics. I double majored in political science and journalism in college. But it’s just gotten to be too much.

    Iíve returned to simply apologize for calling you a racist. I believe that our entire nation is steeped in systemic racism, which is reflected in many of our individual lives. I donít know if you personally are racist.

    I think it may be too late to apologize, he hasn't checked back in over the last 9 days so it looks like he may have moved on to a friendlier pasture. I'll miss him.

    Thatís a shame. I would have hoped that he would have thought about what Tammy was saying. But if not I suppose weíll have to go on with our lives.
