    Find it ironic that Breitbart is crying foul while typically ****ing about the PC police.

    Oh the Left holds no monopoly on pearl clutching. They all leverage the collective faux outrage from people who would be silent if it went the other way.

     

    Brings me back to one of my favorite questions: "You know what happens when you're offended? Not a damned thing, so get on with living."

    There are plenty of ways to criticize the trump/netanyahu relationship without yelling and pointing “JEW!” which is what this cartoon seems to do.

    In what way other than the yarmulka?

    Are you going to tell me that dog's face is immediately recognizable as Binny? Seriously, I'm very politically aware and I don't see it. As far as the yarmulka is concerned, that just shows how Trump assumes whatever identity suits him at the moment.

    @Burgold care to chime in your thoughts?

    I think in the context of the cartoon, those things are needed so that the average people can quickly get the point.

     

    If you just have a blind Trump being lead by a dog with that face, I don't know who that is or the point of the cartoon.  I don't see that face on a dog and immediately think Netanyahu and Israel.  The religious symbolism cues me into the general topic of the cartoon quickly.  I guess they could have removed the religious symbolism and written Netanyahu's name on the dogs body.

     

    @Destino if they do that is no longer anti-Semitic?

    Yeah, it's not like they gave Trump a big hooked nose or something.

    That cartoon is obviously, and horribly, anti-Semetic.  It's shocking that got approval by anyone with common sense, let alone the New York Times.  That's not borderline at all and would be perfectly at home on any hate filled website.  A mistake, which is being charitable, that big should cost some folks their jobs. 

    Ok, please describe why it is anti-Semitic. Trump sporting a yarmulka, Star of David on Binny's neck. 

    Remember, criticism, even in artistic form is not in itself anti-Semitic. 

    I am absolutely open to being corrected on the cartoon. But we just watched a Congresswoman bashed for anti-Semitism when all she did was criticize Trump's involvement in Israel. 

    If I am wrong then I'll admit it, but you're gonna have to do more than pearl clutch.

    Why would he go so far to protect them if there is nothing damaging in them? He has shown guilt in everything he does. How are you missing this?

    Guarantee you it doesn't cost him a single base voter, however if it's as it has been reported then it costs him dearly with financiers and investors which will have long term consequences. My guess is that there is illegal activity in there too, most likely with Russia and the mob.


  6. Gatdammit where are all of our Constitutional Republikanz?!?!

    Every single one of you need to ****ing hide in shame.

    All your screaming about Obama acting like a king, **** all ya'll. You hide in all of your silence hoping to save your ass from the embarrassment that is your's to bear!

     

    You literally have a sitting POTUS ordering his officials to defy the Constitutional authority of Congress. And like a sheep you are all silent as you are shorn.

    I think at this point it is pointless to point out the hypocrisy of the GOP and its voters.

     

    It is a political party that has spent its entire modern existence whining about fiscal conservatism yet has been the most fiscally irresponsible every time it has assumed power. And yet, the base never goes anywhere or holds them accountable.

     

    That is all you will ever need to understand about who the GOP is and how it basically treats it base as rabid morons who will support the party no matter what. Unaccountable to the public, not held accountable by its base of dimwits.

    Agreed on all counts except that it MUST continually be pointed out. They will gaslight you if not.

    It's staggering that people are actually arguing that calling someone back doesn't mean you called that person. It might be the dumbest ****ing thing I have ever seen argued. 

    That's Trump for ya.

    He'll lie about anything, and he will absolutely lie in order to make it look like he's not a petty, slimy, dickhead.


  9. I graduated high school in Central Maine, that Fall I navigated my move to Florida, using a Rand Mcnally US Road Atlas and a highlighter. When I moved to Indiana three years later, same thing. 

    Ask my wife to drive somewhere outside of her norm without GPS and I'll get an angry phone call and hour later. Hell, she took a wrong turn USING GPS, got lost and somehow it was STILL my fault! 😂🤣

    I have no idea why this was ever a thing. I loved writing in cursive in elementary school but it's ****ing impossible as an adult to read other people's cursive writing and I've found it's rarely if ever used anyway. Just a big waste of time. 

    Oh but it engages the artistic mind!

    Then put their asses in art class! No one uses calligraphy like the monks used it and that was art. Cursive is dead, text is king now.

    oh and signatures will be digital. They already are for most things.

    You seem to be suggesting a very narrow idea of a "life of faith".  There are plenty of people that would label themselves as believers, theist, or people of faith that have no problem with the idea that we can use logic and our brains and senses to understand the natural world and universe.

     

    (And such people pre-dated modern science).

     

    What you are saying does and has happened, but that does not capture everybody and paints an incomplete picture.

    Check out the comments that follow Saint Moore's tweet.

    Oh and saying that people used their minds to understand the world around them before science was probably supposed to be a shock, but tends to be that those people were often killed by the likes of Beth Moore BECAUSE they made Jesus smaller.

    The liberal Presidential candidate has won the popular vote 6 out of the last 7 times so I no longer buy this. Even in the past two decades, the midterms have been highly cyclical (2006-2010-2018, each wiping out majorities from one party or the other).

     

    Liberals vote but the power of the vote is heavily slanted towards white, rural voters.

     

    So unless rural America liberalizes anytime soon, we will continue to see people who contribute the least to the economy and our culture, gain the most when it comes to policy and national decisions.

    Turn out is 60%

    And as long as a Wyoming vote counts for 3 people then you're going to continue seeing disaffected voters, oh and gerrymandering.

    No collusion?  Here's today's example...

     

    The Mueller report documents that on August 2, 2016, Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort and deputy Rick Gates met with with Konstantin Kilimnek, a Russian/Ukrainian political strategist with close ties to Russian intelligence agencies, at the Grand Havana Club in New York City.

     

    According to the report, Manafort briefed Kilimnik on the state of the Trump campaign and Manafort's plan to win the election. The briefing included the campaign's messaging strategy  and a  discussion of ‘battleground’ states, which Manafort identified as Michigan, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, and Minnesota.  And then Manafort gave Kilimnek internal polling data.  They left the cigar club separately that day to avoid detection.

     

    In the weeks after that cigar club meeting, Rick Gates continued to feed Kilimnik updated, internal  polling data.   In the meantime, the Russian GRU bombarded voters in those target states with social media messaging, disguised as coming from American people, designed to boost Trump, disparage Clinton, and turn off Sanders voters, including stuff on key wedge issues. lies about the state of Hilary Clinton's health and other bull****...

     

    Fake News.

    Trump said no collusion, why don't you just respect the fact that he won, and appreciate all he's done.

    SEIG....

    So for our legal experts on the board, or at least acting legal experts, how does the law work when it comes to the question of Obstruction if the President is requesting people to break the law and/or do things to stifle on-going investigations and they simply refuse?  Does their refusal to carry out his requests also absolve Trump from obstruction, or does the fact that he was telling people to do things in itself obstruction?  In other words if Trump is intending to obstruct justice through other people is that obstruction?

    Clinton obstructed justice by lying.

    And Trump did more than ask people to break the law, he fired the head of the FBI because he refused to drop a criminal investigation into his National Security Advisor, an investigation that culminated in a guilty plea from the defendant.

     

    McConnell, gambled rightly, that Trump was the useful idiot he needed to push his corporatist ideology upon us all, and now the Religious Right is using the useful idiot to force their religion into our laws.

    Thanks Obama.

    This is the price we pay for having an articulate, intelligent, black man with a stable family life as President.
