yeah, the right is revealing how disingenuous or misled they have been about that.  got in angry argument about this with a good friend during the election.  he was very insistent that trump had no problem with legal immigrants, only illegals.  even at the time, trump's official platform called for reducing legal immigration.  and now he has led the whole party (much of it apparently happily) to expressly favor drastically cutting legal immigration.

Pandora might not be aware that there have recently been two mass killings and several smaller scale murders by self-described white supremacists who straight up said they were killing people for not being white.

and for all the right's concern about the antifa punching Richard Spencer and burning some trash cans, have any of them actually killed anyone?

he can still be useful for leads and tips.  if he can tell them where to look to find something juicy, that is still valuable.

they fired him after the 2010 midterms which were a gop landslide.  usually when the team wins the coach keeps his job, so that seemed oddly unmerited.  and if their firing of steele wasn't about merit, it's no surprise their hiring of him wasn't either.

Me too.
bullshit, you find crappy overused nerd jokes funny all the time

isn't Jeff sessions' DOJ deprioritizing white supremacist violence and focusing more on islamic radicals who kill fewer people?

I said maybe!

even obama probably feels like he didn't do enough

obama did shit for years and would be remembered as a bad, ineffective president if not wedged between the two worst Presidents in the modern era.
if obama wasn't a good president, he was the closest thing to it you'll see in your lifetime

also, obama was a good president.  he was effective and got a lot of positive things done.

Toomey is going to introduce a background checks expansion bill.  (he coauthored one with Manchin in 2013, which was tamer than things the nra had claimed to support in the past, but the gun nuts decided it was tyranny because obama supported it, and defeated it.)

in related news, support for universal background checks is now at 97%.  not a typo.  people who still oppose it are way the fuck outside the mainstream.

And yet they'll still get their way.
maybe not this time

Everything falls into place, as long as we accept that people with L0, L1 and L2 and italians are not modern humans.

trump is open to background checks and a bump stock ban

http://www.cnn.com/2018/02/19/politics/trump-background-checks-florida/index.html

maybe it will actually happen.  if something like this ever does happen, I think it will have to be while there's a republican president.  because when there's a democratic president, the entire gop goes into derangement mode and runs around screaming that tyranny is coming, which is not a political environment conducive to getting majorities in congress to pass some kind of gun control.

It is interesting that Russia very easily identified our biggest morons.
I don't think it's simply about intelligence.  I know intelligent people who got duped to varying degrees, some of them here on this forum.  I think being resistant to propaganda takes some additional ingredients, like having a nose for bullshit, being conscious of manipulation techniques, paying the right amount of attention to your gut when it tells you some new information sounds off, etc.  or just being a galaxy brain atheist who sees the truth of everything.

Yeah the whole thing is posted above.

Probably my favorite thing I've read in the indictment so far is how they targeted Jill Stein and Bernie-Bro type voters using the same rhetoric that they were using to denigrate Clinton and support Trump.
yeah how about that

my bernie bro brother is completely reformed and apologetic for falling for it.
