Yes, saying "it's a wonderful idea" is political too. I think that's Top6's point. Banning political discussions means banning a lot of meaningful stuff.
Nearly everything's political, we're political animals. I don't know why Americans fear that so much.
But, if you want something not political, how about this: raisins suck! Always have, always will. And why must every oatmeal cookie contain them?
Fun? Maybe. Interesting? Not really. How many responses are we up to on the "non-political Japanese tsunami thread"?
