Funny how no matter how many times it's said to NOT talk politics here, you freakin' liberals always dive right in and take shots at Trump, after eight years of complete silence about Obama. Here's an idea. If the schools need money so badly, why don't you tell the teacher's unions to stop spending untold millions of dollars supporting liberal pieces of crap like Hillary Clinton and instead donate that money to the schools???

You see, Dwyer, if you're going to be douchey and try to shove your pathetic political crap down our throats, there are plenty of people like me who are here to tell you to go eff yourself!!

When you take advantage of those two guys with the million dollar collection that don't know crap, why don't you take those obscene profits and help out the soon to be destitute California schools?

I purposely did NOT pull out stars and rookies, etc so they can have a little boost to their hunting and maybe some joy!
Great deeds for kids and schools!!!

Maybe California should raise taxes. Oh, never mind.

That's what you do with the shiny stuff! California schools are taking a big hit this year thanks to Trump. Help your local school.
Somewhat ignoring the unjustifiable shot at Trump, you really could take this a step further and place big government, California-style taxes on their $2800 profits. After all, this is a school where the goal is to educate our youth and prepare them for the realities of life, correct?

I think we are at +5?


Leon, I'm sorry for furthering this discussion and advancing the political talk one post more, but I don't appreciate the shot at Trump. The OP could have just stated that they volunteer at a school and are going to donate their 70k+ cards to the class for them to sell after school as a fundraiser. It's a great gesture, and advances the growth of the hobby with the next generation. But he went the extra step and took a jab at Trump. There have been 8+ years of censored silence from the Right because it's not "Politically Correct" to talk politics in public settings, especially when it comes to the Right's viewpoints/opinions. I'm glad JollyElm spoke up and voiced his frustration. The teacher's union comment just barely scratches the surface of political frustration with the original post, and I will refrain from going into any more depth on the subject. Again, sorry for furthering the political discussion. Well said, Darren, and put me in the group of "people like you". I would support this thread being deleted and the original poster posting a new thread regarding his kind gesture, omitting his political stance.

I think this thread needs to be deleted or locked. I can read this kind of stuff on Facebook if I want. One of the reasons I came here was the ban on political stuff.

Oh don't worry, Rich. It ain't happening here.....at least for long.

Infraction given to Kyle for the same as the OP. This is a 1 infraction game, usually. Thanks to all for not talking politics. No matter what side you are on there are close to 50% that disagree. And to top off this last infraction, if anyone else wants to make political comments in this thread they will be suspended.
