Welcome to the Hyperbolic Civil War
« on: November 22, 2016, 03:02:07 am »
Cannons were loaded. Lasers were energized. Slingshots were pulled. Paper airplanes scribbled with insults were flung.

Facebook feeds would never be the same. Forty years from now, people will talk about the six-million who perished in the Defriendocaust. We're at the political forefront of a new kind of warfare. It's time to fight all this name-calling with even more name-calling! Vilify the voters! Polarize the politics! Marginalize the moderates!

 :argh!: :argh!: :argh!: :argh!:

I think I found something you lot can actually get behind.

You can't get out backward.  You have to go forward to go back.. better press on! - Willie Wonka, PBUH

Life can be seen as a game with no reset button, no extra lives, and if the power goes out there is no restarting.  If that's all you see life as you are not long for this world, and never will get it.

We had a public health policy meeting last night in which the speakers discussed how local clinics should prepare for the predicted gradual erosion of the ACA and the loss of health coverage for 600,000 people in my state.

People who think the effects of a Trump presidency are all hyperbole just aren't reality-based.

Many of the effects of casual racism -- the most common kind of racism, in which white folks aren't maliciously racist, just passively, uncaringly racist vis a vis being willing to vote for a platform based in racist hyperbole to get what they want -- will take the form of continuing to turn a blind eye to racial profiling and inequities in police violence. Programs that tend to benefit minorities will be cut, and white people won't notice so they will continue to claim that racism in the US isn't a problem.

We will gradually make our way toward the economic environment of the 1980's, which will make a lot of wealthier people very happy, and a lot of poorer people very unhappy. Lending will increase, interest rates will increase, spending will increase, the economy will be very flush, and a lot of people won't be able to make ends meet. Abortion will decrease, crime will increase.

I don't think that a Trump presidency will lead to civil war or the collapse of the union. I think that Trump really really wants to make America great again, and for him, greatness was the Reagan era. He'll set us back 30 years, is all, and roll back environmental protections that were inadequate anyway.
Im guessing it was January 2007, a meeting in Bethesda, we got a bag of bees and just started smashing them on the desk, Charles Wick said. It was very complicated.

Nobody agrees with me...
If someone does the Fine, youre right, Im clearly a terrible person, Im Satan, Im the worst person alive, I should just die thing in response to criticism of their harmful behavior, they are trying to manipulate people and flip the situation around so that they look like a victim.

As a neuroscientist I have to disagree with the perception that anyone is doing mathematical modeling of cognitive intelligence, yet; intelligence as an economist defines it, yes, but economists are worlds away from actual cognition.


Although it is outside the purview of this organization to offer personal advice, we can say -- without assuming any liability -- that previous experience indicates (and recent market studies corroborate) that given the present condition of the marketplace, continuing with your present course of action is likely to result in substantial in

It's a shame the speaker in the video wasn't saying exactly this instead of shouting "KKK" over and over again.

Anyway, I'm too busy going to fuck myself to really respond, other than that it's nice to see some actual discussion again. Thanks for sharing.

I'm jealous of the attention the new guy is getting. I'm going to go play in his ignore list for a while.

Just curious did they talk about the effects of any of his proposed health care policies or just getting rid of ACA?
