Politics and Current Events / Re: Facebook
I signed up for NextDoor a year ago or so, but that's been pretty drama free.  My neighborhood's FB groups are hilarious.  Someone created a  "You can't say that in [neighborhood[" group because of the drama and admin actions in the original group.

My neighborhood is actually it's own city, and some crazy lady ran for city council (and lost) and she's become complete unhinged lately.

tbf, I get the impression that many if not most Trumpublicans use the term, 'liberal', to describe anyone left of themselves,  anyone who thinks Obama was a better president than Trump, pretty much all Democrats and pretty much all the mainstream news media.
Yeah, in the US it has become a pejorative used by Alex Jones, Rush Limbaugh, and MAGAbots to label anyone who doesn't like Trump.
Predates Trump.   The first time someone called me a "Liberal" in that way was in 2011.

True. That's the current definition.  Prior to Trump it was "..anyone who doesn't hate Obama"

Here is a better analogy.  The "world" decides that a bit of land is now going to belong to a certain people but there are already people living there that have been there for centuries and Jesus Christ what is the point, this shit shouldn't need to be explained anymore
Well if you're talking about Israel/Palestine as a whole, yeah I sorta get it. If you're talking about what city I put my embassy in, I'm missing some of the nuance.

Ok say I live in DC, and I love the Washington Wizards and hate the Knicks (and all the dirty Jews that live in NYC).

Say that Russia decides to move it's embassy from DC to NYC. Why do I care? I'm not a Russian citizen, why do I give a fuck where some powerful foreign country puts it's embassies and consulates?

Well the embassy move in Israel is going great, or does that belong in a different thread?

Then again how many gunshot wounds do innercity paramedics get in the US?

Nobody knows because the government isn't allowed to track those statistics.

Also Trump has been officially nominated for this year's Nobel Peace Prize
Hmm...
Fake news?
Quote
President Donald Trump has been twice nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize -- but both nominations appear to be fraudulent, The New York Times is reporting.

Olav Njolstad, the secretary of the Norwegian Nobel Committee, which awards the prize, told the Times the committee had uncovered the forged nominations and raised the issue with the Oslo police.
try to keep up, would you please?

Quinnipiac poll has the Texas senate race between Cruz and Beto at too close to call - 44% each

Lots of time between now and November for things to change.   :ohdear:

I'm not optimistic for this, but that would be cool.  I'd be less shocked to see him lose in the primary.  When is the last time a Dem won a statewide race in Texas?

I thought it was bombing Syria that made Alex Jones cry.
