yeah if you thought we were getting out of 2017 without a healthcare repeal, you are nuts.

I'm still trying to understand how liberals are better at being shitheaded retards than conservatives are.

they say mean things which is worse than the active destruction of government functions and democratic norms and blatant fucking corruption and literally supporting a pedophile and cruel punitive deportations and all those other awesome things currently happening

ugh libs are so smarmy *shoots self in the dick, grins*
Shithead activities:

Lauding and supporting the suppression of free speech from people with whom they disagree
Supporting and calling for the normalization of political violence on the basis of belief
Condoning the abandonment of rule of law, as long as the target of vigilante "justice" is deemed to be "evil" by their standards

Conservatives have always been the Roman Catholic Church.  Liberals are trying to up the ante and become the Spanish Inquisition.



you really truly believe this is actually what people are doing and you also really truly believe it's more horrible than the other things currently happening and that is why talking to you about this shit is an absolute waste of time
I don't think this is the only possible was to interpret her statement. Pointing out the problems in teeth's analogy does not lessen the horribleness in what the Trump election says about america.

Still not seeing how I'm seriously arguing for anything besides leaving rural America to suffer the consequences of their shitty policies.

It's not even about burning it down. It takes no active ill will to let white rural america poison themselves with mine runoff and fentanyl.
Maybe not.  It also takes no active ill will to let a drowning person drown - do you consider that to be morally acceptable behavior?

Now let's make this more realistic - what if you're standing on the edge of the lake, laughing and pointing at the drowning man, making fun of him for not learning how to swim to shore, and celebrating the fact that he's going to die?

That's pretty much your position on this - you're certainly an excellent example of human compassion.

The drowning man keeps attacking anyone who tries to help and is sputtering on about how he's going to fucking kill everyone who's currently standing on the shore.

So yeah, no, I'm okay with letting him fucking drown you fucking idiot.

I have also traditionally been a lot more sympathetic towards rural America until they collectively voted to hurt people I love.
Hyperbolize much?

I have friends who have literally personally been harmed by policies this government has enacted. These are policies, such as the muslim ban, that were part of the platform Trump campaigned on.

So no, it's not hyperbole at all.

That does make it tough. And Trump is affecting people in terrible ways across the board. There comes a point when burning it down and starting over can seem like the only path forward. That is a trip we would like to avoid though because that's also what Tim McVeigh thought.

It's not even about burning it down. It takes no active ill will to let white rural america poison themselves with mine runoff and fentanyl.

Not really because I'm not saying don't prosecute it. I'm saying that the current system is not doing its job and better non-partisan enforcement tools need to be established. I'm also saying that a shame-and-resignation informal system will not work when one party has no shame and is willing to endorse a pedophile to push forward tax cuts and healthcare repeal. Furthermore, the shame-and-resignation system PLUS the hiding-behind-settlements system is ripe for political gaming.

In other words, the Weinstein approach is not sustainable in the long term. We need to build a better system, and we need that system to be robust to political gaming, racism, and so on. Otherwise, this will be weaponized by people who are seeking to exploit the left against itself.

The scary thing is that teeth isn't alone in his "genocide the interior" approach to adult life.

My position is slightly more nuanced. It involves not putting so much effort into saving rural America from its own bad decisions.

Don't worry, guys, this will all be over soon.

how can it be fiction when Pandora is deffo a replicant

yeah again, I don't doubt that this is real. But it's certainly interesting that somehow this information was being distributed by alt-right Trumpists before the storybroke.

I'm starting to think Democrats are suicidal.

I'm starting to wish you were suicidal
You've always wished that.  You're a pretty remarkably uncharitable human.

only to you, pando
It's nice that you can rationalize your assholishness so you don't have to face the fact that you're a sucky human being.  It's gotta help you feel better about yourself.

yo pandora, make this your sig:

So an account linked to the Conyers leak may be a Russian trollbot:

https://thinkprogress.org/tennessee-republican-fake-account-8aedaa7592f6/

Interestingly, Conyers has been one of the strongest advocates of the Russia investigation, along with a certain Senator Al Franken.
18
With Franken, I doubt there are criminal charges beyond a misdemeanor. There's a reason that those sorts of charges are up to the victim.
19
you think Conyers ever ordered a pizza?

:hmmm:
21
so it's reasonable to say that ability to show value to the lords of industry should not be the sole qualification for whether a way of life should be preserved, but that's a smokescreen when the issue is that coal miners are unwilling to seek alternate career paths that will help them support their current way of life.

So who is up in 2018?

John Conyers previously settled a wrongful dismissal case involving sexual harassment: https://www.buzzfeed.com/paulmcleod/she-complained-that-a-powerful-congressman-harassed-her

e documents were first provided to BuzzFeed News by Mike Cernovich, the men's rights figure turned pro-Trump media activist who propagated a number of false conspiracy theories including the "Pizzagate" conspiracy.

IOW, what we're seeing is a targeted release of documents associated with Democrats by Trumpists.

I for one appreciate the irony in the fact that TR Poster Most Likely to Fail the Voigt-Kampff Test is complaining about the lack of wildlife in cities.
