I dunno a lot of people bitch about gas prices

this is like, when the death star is revving up to laser your planet, complaining that its exhaust port system doesn't meet EPA standards
Politics and Current Events / Re: Trumpocalypse

In the wake of the November 2016 elections, an image was formed in the public's mind of "Trump Country," those down-and-out places in the Rust Belt where the factory moved to Mexico a decade ago, the only decent jobs could be found at Walmart, and where white working-class voters threw their lot with someone who blamed other people--immigrants, Muslims, Black Lives Matter--for their problems. But it is impossible to talk about the Trump coalition without talking about places like Suffolk, filled with towns and people who have benefitted immensely from the global order that Trump promised to upend.

folks, this is the real trump country, i am surrounded at all times by the absolute worst fucking chuds on earth

eta: think i have said this before but trump is basically the first long island president. there are millions of horrible whites out here who are just like him.

I love all of the conservatives' obsession with apeing soldier culture with all of these dumb challenge coins

chuck's surely gonna reel 'em in with this coin bullshit, he's got it this time

i've heard it both ways
around whites, no respite

kinda hard to avoid the "republicans lite" label when they seem to keep prioritizing "moderate" republicans
A corporate executive has more than 100,000 calories in total. Assuming a 2,000 calorie diet, that means a corporate executive could provide 50 days worth of sustenance if eaten.

big if true
I feel like mass riots and burning cities is the inevitable outcome of the current American trajectory.

we are on track to party like it's 1899

motherfuckers want to talk about class warfare, well the days are coming when unions are going to have to form militias again
i feel like that whole formulation only really holds up of your conception of "working class people" is "white people with crappy houses."
kinda wild how corporations have just created their own private justice system and no one cares
lol if this were to ever happen to me, because I do speak Spanish in public, I would be glad to switch to Russian.

"oh, i'm so sorry, didn't realize you work for the boss..."
unironically support reviving FDR's court-packing scheme. it was the only thing that broke the original Lochner era.
if i understand it correctly it just means they're allowed to make you waive your right to participate in a class action suit as a condition of employment. unions as entities exist in part to shape what those conditions are. so if the employer has that clause in your contract, then it's enforceable, but that's separate from whether a union negotiated a contract without it.
Politics and Current Events / Re: Israel
the idea is that this is something people harp on (understandably) to point out possible connections between trump and russia, so logically they should draw the same connection between trump and israel.

dunno if we have a thread for the tidal wave of judicial reaction that's locked in for the rest of our natural lives but let's just start one here.

it seems like the alt right should be melting down about the royal wedding. are they?
