I can see November 2 from my house!!!

Spread my work ethic, not my wealth.

Forget change, bring back common sense.

No, my friends, there’s only one really progressive idea. And that is the idea of legally limiting the power of the government. That one genuinely liberal, genuinely progressive idea — the Why in 1776, the How in 1787 — is what needs to be conserved. We need to conserve that fundamentally liberal idea. That is why we are conservatives. --Bill Whittle

 Lately, there has been an increase of duplicate threads throughout the Current Events section. I want to remind y'all of the RULES .......

"All article titles must remain intact in your post heading. " Please don't ad lib your post titles!! We appreciate your cooperation in reducing the number of duplicate threads. Also, some articles that are posted have been posted previously. One can either use the search function or at least browse the first three pages of the board before posting an article unless one specifically knows that the article hasn't been posted before.



(I, too, have been guilty of the above transgressions)

I would just like to take a moment to highlight some of the “rules of the road” for Conservative Cave. Please take a moment to re-visit the Board Rules Section again if you haven’t in a while. Due to several public events in the media (Copyright Lawsuits, etc…) it was necessary to refine and refresh our rules.

The Board Rules

Let me clarify that Conservative Cave has not been made party to any lawsuit. We are just exercising an abundance of caution to prevent that from happening. A Fair Use Notice is posted on the bottom of the forum page as well.

There are a few other key elements that I would like to remind everyone about as well.

Those of you who have been here since the dinosaur age should know the rules inside and out. We expect you to conform to a higher standard as a result. Not only is hospitality important when interacting with newcomers but setting an example for proper forum behavior is your responsibility. Think of any new members as you would a guest in your own home. Treat them nicely and be a kind host. Now, if someone decides to track mud in our house, we have an awesome Mod Squad that specializes in housekeeping. Let us take care of any messes and don't make any on your own.

And for those of you who are new to The Cave, Welcome! We're glad you're here! It's a good idea to read all of the forum rules first and make sure you know the "rules of the road" at The Cave before diving in. Please familiarize yourself with the "vibe" and drop by the non-political forums to kick back and get to know our members. We hope that you feel greeted warmly and enjoy our hospitality. If not, please let us know immediately.  Likewise we expect our older members to stop by and say "hello" to the new folks. Get to know each other! Have fun.

On to a couple more Housekeeping Topics:

We live in a 24/7 Instant New Media world. As everyone knows, events are reported as they happen and often incorrectly. Due to the fast and blurry nature of these reports, let me kindly remind all of you to excersice caution when sharing information. Not just in what you post as source material but also what you choose to share about yourself.

This website is indexed by all major search engines and the public is able to view our topics (with the exception of certain restricted areas) by simply doing a key word search. Please refrain from comments that could be interpreted as encouraging harm towards ANY individual. We’re not setting up speech codes but merely remining you of the rules already in place. Think twice; post once. Mods have final say on what is appropriate.

Please also consider before you share any personal information either voluntarily or by request. We have a great group of folks here at CC and nothing has happened to make me question that. I just want everyone to keep in mind that we have grown quite a bit since our beginning and have gained a following. The new traffic and increase in members is great! Please remember to sit up straight and say please and thank you though.  

Your safety and enjoyment is the primary concern and if you have any questions, please send a PM to the Management Team.

Let`s all please do our best to make this place enjoyable to everyone.
