I think is says more about the mods politics than the posters. There is an inherent conflict of interest in anyone who posts and moderates both. It is not possible to talk about taxes or healthcare reform Social Security without some political implication. But I don't want those subjects to be off limits. As long as people are civil I can ignore any unintended political slant that I don't agree with.
