    Moderators: An Idea for a Stickied Thread [answered]

    Hi, I have been seeing a lot of posts on the US Politics thread with links to various groups - the ACLU, DNC, various congresscritters or progressive volunteers organizations. The Politics thread being what it is, all these useful links tend to get buried under the mountain of messages. Is...

    Superman & socialist self loathing

    So I just read that Superman is going to abandon his American citizenship. He's going to announce it to the UN (!) at about the same time as Syria joins the human rights council.
