    • Planet Janet Rules   07/07/2015

      General Rules for Planet Janet Welcome to Planet Janet! The main objective of this board is to express your love for Janet, your opinions, and to interact with an important segment of the Janet fandom.  To enjoy your experience here, below are general rules and guidelines to make your experience here be successful: The N Word Please be aware that the N word is going to be filtered on this forum. Most importantly, this word is not acceptable on this forum in any form; therefore, if it is used again by ANY member on here, it will result in an immediate and permanent ban. Consider this the first, only, and last warning regarding this. Music Download | Copyright Infringement Illegal download links to music from any artist are not permissible to be posted on this forum at any time. If you have posted an illegal download link, you must take it down immediately. Failure to remove the links, and/or subsequent, repeated offenses will result in disciplinary action up to and including a permanent ban from the forum. Fan Threads of Other Artists Generally, we like to keep threads and/or topics about other artists within an Official Artist Thread.  This helps to eliminate clutter and redundancy throughout the forum and allow a one-stop shop to view comments on that particular artist not pertaining to Janet.  If there is HUGE news related to an artist and generates a lot of discussion, it is okay to have a standalone thread on that topic outside of the Official Thread. A good debate is OKAY in the Official Threads of other artists.  Official Threads are not complete sanctuaries of devotion of that particular artist; however, there is a need to be civil with other members.  Please refrain from personal attacks and arguments that devolve into personal attacks. Additionally, do NOT use Janet as means to defend an artist.  This forum is made in her honor, and putting her down to boast your particular artist is prohibited. Exercise good judgment and common sense.  If not, then the moderating team will exercise disciplinary action depending on the egregiousness of the action.  Please utilize this announcement as a first warning. Personal Attacks

      Each member has a warning percentage - most of them are at zero right now but a few have been warned before. Each warning is worth 10%, and once it gets to 100% the member is automatically banned from the forum. 

      Each time a member gets into an argument with another member that includes personal attacks, if it is reported or viewed by a member of the moderating team, each participant in the personal attack will get an increase in their warning percentage.  They will be notified via PM, and, prior to posting again, will receive a receipt acknowledging that warning before they can post again. The Moderating Team will never divulge a member's warn percentages on the forum or to other members.

      What this means is you are now responsible for your own future on this forum. The Moderating Team will not keep asking you to stop and being ignored. Learn to let things go and learn to moderate yourself before posting; if you end up banned it will be your own fault. Personal attacks and include attacks on one’s race, age, religious creed, color, gender, national origin, physical, mental or visual disability, medical condition, ancestry, marital and military status, pregnancy or sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression and general physical appearance/looks. Depending on the nature of the personal attack there will be corrective action up and including permanent banning. If you have any inquiries about your warning percentage, feel free to PM a mod for an answer. If you need any clarification on the rules, feel free to reach out to The Moderating Team.

The big demographic this election was men aged 40 and up. Bernie probably would have lost too (probably a closer race though)

She's 100% done.  That was all her political capital.  I was just thinking of who can come unite the Democrats and rally next time after this crushing loss.  Its going to be hard to mobilize and motivate again.

People keep mentioning Michelle, but I think this vote shows its going to have to be someone new.  People aren't going for another Clinton or Obama

Absolutely. This was probably going to be her last major political endeavor either way. Yeah this is a big loss for the party...  She still got further than she did in 2008 though so it's something...

 I'm sure they're diplomatic enough to accept the results and move forward though with re-energizing the party

we could have a fresh start, a new Democratic party that understands the electorate better, knows what and who doesnt work. My only issue is how fucking far off polls were, we are in 2016 with all this technology and yet no one saw this coming

Bernie was chastised as ONLY appealing to white men, "BernieBros" by Clinton shills. Honestly, he would would have won Michigan and Wisconsin aginst Trump at the very least.

I'm utterly shocked how wrong so many were.  I don't know if Bernie would have survived this either.  He would have had to find a way to keep this older white vote down somehow and get more younger and minority turnout.  AND more women.

 

And lets not forgot Trump had republicans in damn near Civil War!  And he STILL got the people behind him

She got slightly less enthusiastic Minority vote true.  But, he got WAY higher white vote than has been seen since the 80s in these majority white counties.

That's what I think would happen. 

I forget the term/theory but it states that are people might chose the more "socially desirable/acceptable" choice in order to please the status quo or general population instead of their own personal choice(s). It's hard for stats and polls to catch this

Obama was papering over the cracks in the Democratic party a little bit.  Republican controlled congress had the worst approval ratings almost the whole 8 years.  They obstructed everything he wanted to do refused to vote on his Supreme Court appointee.  Yet they Still got reelected for the most part. 

All that obstruction is justified with this vote.  Minorities that didn't come out in force now have to go to the back of the bus again.

Yep, black people were only 12% while Latinos were only 11%. White people were 70%. Republicans got the White House and the Senate. We are doomed!!!!! Goes to show you those polls didn't mean shit. But than again I already knew that. I voted Hillary but I even hated doing that. She was not a good candidate. Neither is Trump. People just didn't like or trust her.....

The only good thing about this election now is that it's over.

I hope that the world doesn't end in the next 4 years and we can get a good candidate to unite the country like Obama did.

It's a sad day in human history.
