    Trump and his cabinet/buffoonery- Get your bunkers ready!

    The right has been inventing its own reality for a long time now. Technology just makes it easier. When your base is entirely composed of thumb sucking goobers, you can do anything.

    The Brexit Thread

    It’s Boris Johnson’s job if he wants it. Brexit can come full circle with this moron leading the way, but I have a feeling he won’t. Easier to sit on the sidelines and complain than face the consequences of your stupidity.

    The Brexit Thread

    Discuss the impending **** storm.
  4. A lot of economically anxious right wing folks have descended upon UVA this weekend. Of course, there are heroes in this story. Who were sadly failed by their local police departments.
  5. https://thinkprogress.org/trump-ichan-steel-imports-cf7deb8beaf0/ Insider trading 101. If the SEC still does what it's supposed to do, this should be a major scandal that demands an investigation. This is the kind of corruption that is a hallmark of oligarchies. Also might as well make this the trade war thread. It seems like the tariffs won't just be for steel and aluminum.
  6. They certainly have a choice of always being the last state to accept civil rights advancements and social progress.
  7. This is nothing but a lame attempt at marginalizing a group of people that bigots don't like. There is absolutely no greater ideal of parenting involved in this. It's Alabama doing Alabama ****.
  8. There are plenty of things that we some of us don't like, but we accept that they are part of society and maybe sometimes when we turn on the TV or our entertainment devices, we or our children will see them. The solution of banishing cultural representation in media of a lifestyle you don't agree with is some authoritarian nonsense.
  9. Yes, and the concept of homosexuality is so normalized, that no one listens to them. I don't care for what Alabama is doing because it's a clear attempt at pushing homosexuality out of public sight. I get this is not your reason for support, but the vocal minority uncomfortable with homosexuality will do all it can to go back to a time when we could pretend this isn't a common phenomenon. Ultimately, I just don't think children care that much if they are exposed to it early on or if their parents don't have hangups themselves.
  10. It wasn't that long ago that adults with insecurities wanted gay people to also hide themselves in public so the children wouldn't be exposed. Like you say, in most parts of the country like NoVA and DC, that aren't voluntarily living 50 years in the past, gay marriage and homosexual relationships are pretty normalized and out in the open. To think a cartoon will make children uncomfortable is so laughably dumb. Maybe in Alabama that's true, who knows.
  11. It is one of the ways we make the issue taboo no matter how much you want to twist yourself into a pretzel to defend your position.
  12. twa will defend whatever the GOP does and repeat their mindless talking points like the good little drone that he is (see: "Obama judges"). And when he can't, he will deflect to "But Obama" or "But Clinton". Total waste of time engaging him on this.
  13. And some people find it immoral that a group of humans are forced to hide themselves and their existence is considered something that should remain hidden. What's so hard to comprehend about that?
  14. I don't have a link yet, but Breitbart just preemptively ran a counter-piece to a Washington Post story that is about to be released soon. The Washington Post article will allege that Roy Moore, noted homophobe, running as the Republican candidate for Senate in Alabama, assaulted teenage girls as young as 14, when he was in his 30's. Roy Moore is on record, denying these allegations to Breitbart. This is going to be a huge ****storm. Republicans will have to make a choice: defend Roy Moore or force him to step down and likely replace him with Luther Strange. It's going to pit the McConnell faction that favors Strange, against the Bannon faction, which favors Roy Moore. I have not linked to the Breitbart piece but if the mods ask, I will provide the link. The Washington Post story hasn't come out yet. The WP article is out: https://www.washingtonpost.com/investigations/woman-says-roy-moore-initiated-sexual-encounter-when-she-was-14-he-was-32/2017/11/09/1f495878-c293-11e7-afe9-4f60b5a6c4a0_story.html?tid=ss_tw&utm_term=.969d8eb93561

    The Brexit Thread

    The UK pro-Brexit right wing has gone mental and is supporting a candidate whose platform of No Deal Brexit would burn their economy to the ground. This is for the EU parliament elections, but if it holds even partially in the general election, the Tories are screwed.
  16. I was holding off on posting this because I wasn't sure where this dumb conspiracy was headed. But this has now reached enough of a mass popularity in right wing circles so here you go. Tl;dr: people are convinced that a Trump admin official who they have dubbed "QAnon", is posting subtle hints of a massive conspiracy on the 4chan board /pol. http://nymag.com/selectall/2017/12/qanon-4chan-the-storm-conspiracy-explained.html
  17. More socialist than anything Obama ever did. Trump truly leads a pack of morons.
  18. If the country is dumb enough, it deserves what it gets when corrupt politicians are held accountable and that act of accountability works in the corrupt wankers benefit.
  19. Why we have Trump to begin with. Replace Larry’s chicken**** post with the GOP antics since Clinton’s presidency. One side takes power to its to its absolute limits and continues winning elections. The other side has Larry saying that the House executing its duties of oversight will result in the people under investigation winning more elections.
  20. The state with worst civil rights record in the country gonna do its thing. Cant hide your kids forever from gay people. Just like you couldn’t keep them from coming in contact with non-whites or people from other cultures. Shows like this are meant to normalize fellow humans, but I suppose we can keep treating gay people as “others”. A big bubble of ignorance.

    Trump and his cabinet/buffoonery- Get your bunkers ready!

    These are the same people who want the rest of us to believe that they care about “life”. You know as Jesus said, invade foreign countries and praise those who savagely murder innocent brown people. They aren’t just disgusting. They are failures of human decency and the products of failed moral teachings.
  22. “Late term abortions” are about 1% of cases, and seem to happen because women lack access at earlier stages in some parts of the country.
  23. Unprecedented moment in history when the sitting US President is facing multiple criminal investigations. With SDNY implicating Trump in two criminal felonies, we are facing a scenario where he may end up in jail post Presidency. It feels bizarre typing out the jailing of a former US President but here we are.

    Presidential Election 2020 - ManChild vs Adult

    The working class, as a group, in America mostly votes for Democrats. For some reason, we equate the working class to white people, when a huge chunk of the working class is actually brown and black people.

    Game of Thrones Season 8

    This show did the anti-hero stuff decently at one point. Like Cersei vs the Taliban, and when she blows up the Sept. I was 100% ok with Cersei just lighting up all of the fundy nut jobs in one big explosion. That was also IMO the high point of the series and it was all downhill from there. It’s just a travesty that Daenerys gets torn down in just two episodes. Her mad queen scene and eventual death would have been so much more powerful if there was more time to explore her descent into a delusional fascist. It’s a shame because they were beautifully shot scenes. The last shot of her addressing her army, I mean my god, that’s maybe the best cinematic moment of this entire show.
