    I doubt it. It *should* be. But at this point, I never expect that Deep State swamp rats ever really get their due.

    I would describe my mood about the matter as hopeful but not optimistic.
    Some may call me foolish, and some may call me odd
    But I'd rather be a fool in the eyes of man

    107. Limitations on exclusive rights: Fair use

    Notwithstanding the provisions of sections 106 and 106A, the fair use of a copyrighted work, including such use by reproduction in copies or phonorecords or by any other means specified by that section, for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching (including multiple copies for classroom use), scholarship, or research, is not an infringement of copyright. In determining whether the use made of a work in any particular case is a fair use the factors to be considered shall include—

    (1) the purpose and character of the use, including whether such use is of a commercial nature or is for nonprofit educational purposes;

    (2) the nature of the copyrighted work;

    (3) the amount and substantiality of the portion used in relation to the copyrighted work as a whole; and

    (4) the effect of the use upon the potential market for or value of the copyrighted work.

    The fact that a work is unpublished shall not itself bar a finding of fair use if such finding is made upon consideration of all the above factors.

    Of the 20 threads on the front page of Civics:
    - eight are explicitly about Trump and/or his impeachment[1]
    - seven are not directly about Trump, but he's mentioned in the opening post anyway[2]
    - two more aren't about Trump but he still gets frequent mentions[3], despite the supposed thread topic (Brexit / taxing churches)

    Only three of the twenty threads do not quickly descend into discussions of Trump[4], and one of those is about how to deal with the whistleblower who exposed him. Even the thread about a massacre in Mexico begins with asking what Trump will do about it.

    When Trump is the basis or referent for 80% of the threads here and rapidly becomes the topic of half the others, there is really no grounds for complaining about TDS. You might as well change the Civics tagline to "Donald duke" and move the thread on China to World History because that's a better fit.

    But as of late, there hasn't been much discussion there.

    Which isn't the same as none. I think there's been some interesting discussion in a couple Christianity threads lately, that has nothing whatsoever to do with Trump.

    True. But inside Civics it's all Trump, Trump, Trump.

    I have my doubts. Conservatives cite the Federalist Papers the way Baptists cite their sacred texts. In another age, but not so distant most of us here can't remember, Buckley, Reagan's favorite publisher, famously crusaded against the Birchers. Conservatives eschew propaganda outlets and conspiracy theorists. I can no more imagine a conservative citing the Federalist blog than a Baptist citing the Dark Bible.

    I suppose it could happen, as part of a lesson in bad examples, but certainly not approvingly.

    Regarding the article in the o/p, looking beyond the fetid style, there's little to favor beyond the author's equivocations between the difficulties in regaining a good reputation after losing it and losing it after it's been won, which is worth a laugh, so that's something. I'd imagine you know that's not true, or can figure it out once a more careful reader has pointed it out.

    But that's Hillary, a political enemy whom you've declared evil. A preacher calling someone evil should mean something more than that, I'm thinking.

    As conservatives go, you're probably a decent preacher, poke. But when you mix your faith with politics, even your preaching is likely to come under doubt. I'm hardly the first to note this, not by millennia.

    Others of us launch our boats out in the culture, but because we fail to adequately protect ourselves from its influence and guard ourselves against sin, we end up taking on water. Some believers simply throw up their hands in surrender without even trying to live by God’s standards. Following Christ may feel “too hard,” “too boring,” or just “too weird.” But the majority of us compromise little by little. Often we don’t even realize it’s happening. We straddle the fence over here. We give slightly in another area over there. Sometimes, we even compromise with God’s holy standards in a misguided attempt to be “relevant.”

    You've start threads chastising the perceived dishonesties of Obama's press secretaries, but not a peep on Spicer or Sanders; and the same with Warren for discrepancies in speeches separated by decades while mocking Jim as triggered when he applies those principles to Trump and does what you too should be doing and would be doing, if your opposition was based on principle rather than party.

    I keep telling myself you mean well.
