I don't think they need to try very hard. I wonder, really, what the average literacy level is among a large number of these people? Dave's remarkable in that he's pretty able with language, grammar, spelling, vocabulary etc. But if you read a lot of the tweets and facebook posts from rural conservatives you get a picture of people struggling to understand even the information they want to read, and really struggling to respond, even with auto correct etc. to help them. That doesn't even touch on the ones who aren't confident enough to even write a response. Trump's grade school words and repetition probably works well for communication here.

And I don't blame them - it looks to me as if public education failed them a few generations back and they have never caught up. :(

Maybe it's time to change this subforum title to Alt Reality and Alt Right Extravaganza - then we could toss posters like Greatest-I-Am-A-Misogynist-Xenophobe in here as well.

Whoa.

So... no one washed right out to sea or drowned in a valley or anything?

Sorry buddy. From what you've said, it was time, but that doesn't stop the grief when you've loved a pet for so long.

She spends half her days dissecting dead animals, os. I'd be careful if I were you. :ohdear:

Personal attacks?

Quoting this post because this is the one that gets you perma banned. For telling another poster that they've sold their soul to satan which is a deliberate and malicious attempt to wound, and for apparently telling a mod that that there is some sort of 'internet law' that means they can't enforce rules. After all your time on this forum in the past flooding it with page after page after page of new threads, for using it as your personal pulpit, for being intentionally rude to other posters who legitimately have tried to engage you, and for complaining that rules shouldn't be applied to you - not just this time but the last time you darkened the door of this site. You're gone.

You'll have to get your free posting space elsewhere.

It's your contemptuous attitude towards others and your habit of evading any question that you don't like that seems to get you banned at other forums, DL.

Perhaps a bit of self reflection would benefit you.

"The theft of brown women's narratives is not only an injustice placed on them, but also one extended to their male counterparts; by insisting they need to be liberated from their 'barbaric' civilization, Laura [Bush] summoned the colonial assertion that brown women need saving from brown men, when, in actuality, brown women have suffered at the hands of white men more than at those of any other oppressor in history."

Why not just complain about the existence of honour killings and domestic violence and how its a problem in many parts of the work, rather than bringing Islam into it as if that was the problem? Rather than, in many cases condemning it when it happens.

Its almost as if you care more about railing against Islam than you do about women.
There's the truth of the matter. DL is narrow-focussed on his hatred for Islam, so other crimes don't interest him. It's bigoted fanaticism dressed up as concern for Muslim 'females'.

Dave's like a caricature of an American 'businessman'. He actually thinks the government is a business and believes world leaders give a shit about 'making deals' on the golf course.

mindromp MSG is days ahead of you with this news. :stuckup:

which is very cool though.

Because there is no separate classification for domestic violence, there are no reliable statistics on prevalence, but the Ministry of Internal Affairs estimated in 2008 that it occurs in 25% of all families, and that 14,000 women die every year "at the hands of husbands or other relatives", with nearly 65% of all homicides related to domestic violence.
https://www.theguardian.com/cities/2015/jun/10/moscow-domestic-violence-problem-russia

14,000 murdered women per year. Wow. Those 90%+/- Christian Russians sure do like killing their wives.

Why aren't you ranting about all those Christian wife-beating murderers, DL?

Politics and Current Events / Re: Trumpocalypse
How did I miss this? Or is this new?

Angela Merkel will reportedly ignore Donald Trump's attempts to extricate £300bn from Germany for what he deems to be owed contributions to Nato.
The US President is said to have had an "invoice" printed out outlining the sum estimated by his aides as covering Germany's unpaid contributions for defence.
Said to be presented during private talks in Washington, the move has been met with criticism from German and Nato officials

http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/us-politics/donald-trump-angela-merkel-nato-bill-defence-ignore-usa-germany-spending-a7650636.html

The President of the United States doesn't know how NATO works and doesn't seem to understand what a Treaty is.

ETA: and is a puerile grandstanding fool.
when I first heard about this I couldn't remove my face from my hands for a good five minutes

I don't know anything about NATO or treaties, etc, but I am curious.  Besides the boorishness of handing the head of state a goddamn invoice like you just delivered a pallet of cement mix, what is the hangup with trying to get European countries to pay more for NATO defense programs?  I feel like people are just scandalized that the idea is even being suggested (again, all of President Dummy's antics aside), which makes no sense to me.  Are they underpaying?  Should they be paying more? I feel like I can't get a straight answer on this.

ETA: If they have pledged to pay 2%, and are not paying 2%, the someone needs to shame them into paying 2%.  Right?
The 2% was proposed as a goal to strive for by the year 2024. It also not a payment - it is the amount of GDP NATO countries agree to work toward spending on defence in their own countries.

Trump also seems, like many Americans, to think that the US is only in NATO to protect Europe, when in reality without the bases in, for example, Germany, the time and cost of deploying troops and supplies to the Middle East would be prohibitive and bad news for all of the US excursions into the Gulf and other places.

I'm certainly no expert, but people who are, think NATO is a very important element of American military and diplomatic power.

And speaking of "bringing back manufacturing" dave: What's the deal with "American steel" and the Keystone pipeline?

Except...
http://www.snopes.com/2017/03/07/keystone-and-dakota-pipeline-steel/
Lol ... you obviously didn't read my link.


I read it. it's utter nonsense, propaganda. Once Dakota and others already mostly supplied with pipe are done, it's unlikely more will be built, seeing as the US is soon to be over-capacity for pipelines. Pipeline companies will build no more in the US unless - wait for it - the government pays them for makework projects that will never be used.

If Trump actually announced a sensible and much needed infrastructure project to replace the hundreds of bridges that are old and close to failure, that would be a few years worth of work for steelworkers. But no, the gov't would have to pay for them also, not as sexy as pipelines.

And speaking of "bringing back manufacturing" dave: What's the deal with "American steel" and the Keystone pipeline?
Yeah, that. He or his minions could have asked anyone in the industry, from CEOs to the pipefitters and ironworkers on the ground, and they could have told him all that pipe was already bought and stockpiled, much of it in Canada. But of course, why look for facts?
Borealis is smarter than Trump. That explains why she's richer as well.  And more influential.
Amazing. Know what? Idi Amin and Saddam Hussein were richer and more influential than me, too. That how you judge people's intellect and worth, is it Dave?

But no, being 'smarter' has nothing to do with why I knew about the stockpiled pipe. I know lots of trade workers. They have this info because their jobs depend on knowing shit like that, and from top to bottom in those industries, people talk to each other, because there is an intricate relationship between volatile industries and workers if the corporations are to have any hope of an educated, experienced workforce that will be there when they are needed.

But Trump only knows real estate and scams.

Better ramp up your calorie production, Dave, because 8 years of Trump catering solely to the super wealthy class is going to produce a lot more hungry children than already strive to survive in your messed up country.

You're a very socially ignorant son of a bitch, Dave.

Fuck off, DL. Women are mistreated and subjugated around the world, including right here in Canada. You don't need religion, though of course it often helps - ask the sold girls and lost boys of Mormonism. Your blatant hypocrisy in singling out Islam is typical of bigots and misogynists. You talk as if women had no minds, no agency, no common sense.

No. Just no choice, given Honor killings.

You are right that there is abuse of women in many quarters.

I am just targeting the biggest offender.

Fuck off yourself.

Regards
DL
You target these criminals with apparently no attempt to learn why it persists, its cultural origins, its history, or its actual relationship with religion. Educate yourself.

Then don't complain about the administration of this site calling you out. You get to post screeds most of us find repulsive, and hardly 'truthful'. We get to tell you we think your views are often repulsive.

Look who else is policing clothing choices for women and girls:


Quote
A @united gate agent isn't letting girls in leggings get on flight from Denver to Minneapolis because spandex is not allowed?" she tweeted on Sunday. "She's forcing them to change or put dresses on over leggings or they can't board. Since when does @united police women's clothing?"

Although some were allowed onto the plane after modifying or changing their outfits, she tweeted that two girls, one of whom was 10-years-old, were not allowed on the flight. Watts asked United for an explanation.

"They just boarded after being forced to change or put dresses on over the top of their clothing. Is this your policy?" Watts asked the airline.


United responded to Watts on Twitter, writing that they "have the right to refuse transport for passengers who are barefoot or not properly clothed."

border crossings from mexico have been dropping for several years. trumpians have tried to attribute recent drops to Trump, but the numbers fluctuate seasonally anyway, so it's hard to pin down causes, other than harvests.
