The rules in "Jobs Discussion" are different than the rules for Meaningless Drivel. The ban on political discussions applies only in MD. Talking about how politics effects the economy and hence the job market is actually on-topic in JD. Talking about politics and religion, stem cells, or what-have-you would be off-topic in Jobs Discussion and would be moderated as such.
Now, remember that the prime directive "Be Nice" applies in all forums. If we see that one broken, then posts get edited, deleted, or threads get shut down, no matter what forum they're in.
