A thread can mean many things, and it has got a little different meaning in programming than here at LQ. Here a "thread" is a chain of messages started by somebody, where people can add "posts", or pieces of text.
I guess you could write some political stuff at the General forum, but it might depend a little on what you're about to say
if it has absolutely nothing to do with Linux, and that's all you're going to write here, then I'm fairly sure you could find a better place (a forum, if you like) to write it on---you may get some exposure here, which you're probably after, but not as much as I imagine you could in some other, more politicitally oriented place.
If it's hard to find a place for your talk, I hope it's because you're new to writing on the web, not because of the content of your things. Maybe you should create your own blog (a place of your own where you can write things and receive comments, potentially better than a non-politically oriented forum); if you don't know what that is, try searching for "blog" at one of the search engines such as Yahoo or Google, and you'll get an answer. Today it takes a few minutes to get your own blog up and running, and after that you can express yourself as much as you like (given that you follow the generally accepted rules and etiquette)..
I don't think "what the hell" is as good as "what exactly".
