Re: If We Build It, They'll Probably Still Come

Isn't that different as it was detaining families together, rather than separating them. The reason otherwise friendly partisans on the left went to the mat with the Obama Admin is because we saw the utter inhumanity that happens inside these internment camps. Women aren’t allowed to let their child...

Re: Orange is the new President

Sessions is a shitstain in his own right, given his congressional record. But he had a constituency within the GOP and was always a likely cabinet nominee. I think another GOP POTUS would have reined him in on this issue. [I concede I am playing 'alternate history' here and your estimate is as poss...

I listened to it.

I had a strong desire to commit several major felonies after listening to it. If somebody else were to commit those felonies I'd probably develop a keen interest in getting picked for jury duty.

Meh. In the world where Trump keeled over before the Team Ted debates, people would be going on about how "Only Ted Cruz" or "Only Jeb Bush" would be doing this stuff that Red voters are clamoring for and that Team Red is eager to do. You truly think Cruz or Bush (especially!) would be putting chil...

It pisses me off when conservatives say that illegal immigrants are committing a crime. Illegal entry into the US is a civil, not criminal, infraction.

Frankfurt is one of the most boring and crappiest little towns in central europe, the idea that London City boys would move there is extraordinarily retarded.

Re: Twitter!

It’s also a disease of the conservative instincts around thin veneer of civilization/slippery slope to chaos. It has a long history. I'd have a lot more respect for "law and order" types if they held LEOs to the same standard. It’s authoritarian down in its bones. They Do What Needs to be Done. I'm...

I was wondering why all of the sudden a bunch of conservatives started to care about Pruitt's corruption this week. Was it some sort of delayed conscience? Or perhaps good old fashioned ag interests?

Re: Twitter!

Interesting thread showing the prior period where Romans 13 was frequently cited in American discourse. I'm sure you'll be shocked to read that it was in defense of slavery. After the Civil War, citations fell abruptly because people saw what a shitty argument is. https://twitter.com/YAppelbaum/stat...

Yes, that's about as diplomatic as Trump has ever been. Two problems: 1) Wouldn't it be nice if he could be at least as diplomatic with frickin' Canada? Sure. That's why I said it shocked me. That said, Canada isn't a twitchy little country menacing anyone with nuclear weapons. We can afford to dip...

Hey don't worry, we got an agreement that is deeper than the ocean, one that can't be described by mere words . “Not all of that work appeared in the final document,” Pompeo said. “But lots of other places where there were understandings reached, we couldn’t reduce them to writing.” “Not all of that...

One person giving money to a political campaign is not the same as putting a God Hates Fags sign in each franchise.
