Re: Politics

George Lucas has ideas but is bad at making movies. JJ Abrams knows how to make movies but has no ideas. Pick your poison, I guess.

Re: Politics

The people who have already been radicalized very well might get even angrier, but if you take away their platforms then you hamper their ability to radicalize more people and you make it harder for them to organize. None of this is news to authoritarian governments, corporations, etc that have long...

Re: Politics

It's been very exciting these past few days to watch conservatives allllllllmost grasp the problem with basically ceding control of society to big corporations and their wealthy owners. Do you mean, go back underground? While having them out and open and honest and saying the quiet part out loud has...

Re: Politics

^ You can take what I said however you want. I know I didn't say it to ease the blame on Trump. I find it interesting none of you arguing with me can even admit that the rhetoric between citizens of opposite political beliefs didn't fuel the build up and anger of some of these Trump people? If you ...

Re: Politics

Massive over simplification of my comment. There's no denying Trump has stirred the pot for all this time and his rhetoric has lead to this. My comment about the name calling was in reference to someone.... SURPRISE! Name Calling! I don't think those on the right should call liberals "snowflakes" j...

Re: Politics

So if I'm understanding correctly, the argument is that people who fly flags like this:

broke into the Capitol yesterday because Democrats have been too mean to them? Is that right?

Re: Politics

While Trump may go down as a historically bad potus, at least at minimum the man has actually had personal experience in various aspects of life. lol what in the world does this even mean The idea is most politicians have experience in politics, politics and politics. Look at Hawley working his way...

Re: Politics

I look forward to a fractured GOP putting extreme candidates up in the 2022 primaries. Kinda like in 2016, when fevered speculation about action on the convention floor to block Trump's nomination and calls from other Republicans for him to drop out as late as the Access Hollywood tape in October g...

Re: Politics

Yeah I've pointed out often that US DEM version of 'socialism' is nothing like Europe or Asia and the fact Bernie was rejected twice in DEM primaries supports that. But there is a good chance DEMs could lose both House/Senate in 2022 and sort of actualize an incidental self-fulling prophecy by push...

Re: Politics

2022 will be a bloodbath for Dems, they are not going to take control of the Senate (and they will lose control of the House).

Re: Politics

Pete was jockeying for a cabinet position because he hopes it will boost his career and, as a soulless climber/empty suit, that is all he really cares about, but the fact that he got one is just mutual back-scratching in recognition of his suicide bombing the Bernie campaign. I think you are giving ...

Re: Politics

Pete was thrown a bone as a reward for dropping out of the primary when he did and becoming a Biden surrogate, that's all.

Re: GO ROYALS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Just because you can picture a "spectrum" doesn't mean that the correct answer is somewhere in the middle of it. That is a bit of faulty logic called appealing to moderation. And splitting hairs around what other "connotations and definitions" the word can have seems to miss the point on both sides ...

Re: Politics

However many mystery choices there might have been who turned it down or whether Rahm turned it down or was never offered it in the first place doesn't really have any bearing on the question that was actually raised, which was "is Pete at DOT good news?" or the opinion that I offered, which was "th...

Re: Politics

I'm not really talking about the politics of it or who Biden likes more (obviously the only reason we're talking about any of these terrible people in the first place is that Biden isn't going to pick anybody decent for anything), just who seems to me like they'd be better at the actual job out of t...

Re: GO ROYALS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

"Vikings" were white Europeans (which does matter and is not a "double standard") and also no longer exist, and the team with that name represents a city/state with a large population of Scandinavian descent. If the NFL wants to award Navajo Nation their own NFL franchise, and if they want to call t...

Re: Politics

I'm more than open to counterarguments, but it definitely seems to me like Rahm Emmanuel, ghoulish though he is, would be a better choice for DOT. I don't really know Chicago super well, but people I know there who otherwise rightfully hate him seem to grudgingly admit that he was pretty good on the...

Re: GO ROYALS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It's not necessary to get into the veracity of the story itself (but seriously, come on, "a lot of tribal members unhappy with the program" should be where the discussion ends) when a rich white guy running around calling himself "the Chief" is iffy regardless, and in any case, whatever nuance might...
