This is not the straw that will break the camel's back. It's just one more thing on the list of things we're sure will finally be the end of this nightmare, only to pale in comparison to the next thing.

At this point, I don’t know what it’s going to take to get Comrade Spanky out of office.

I doubt that his base, who make up about 33 % of The Republicult™, will abandon him for any reason. And given that number of supporters, I don’t see how his impeachment will not lead to open violence across the country.

And, the professional politicians in The Republicult™, who make up nearly all of the politicians in the party, are deathly afraid of their own cultists (The Republicultists™). I sincerely hope I’m wrong, but I don’t see many, if any, of those politicians openly doing a damn thing to get their sociopath out of the White House.

So, when Special Counsel Mueller finally wraps up his investigation, what then? Whatever happens, I don’t believe it’s going to be at all straightforward. I suspect the Attorney General of New York State is going to end up being the pointman, by default, for Comrade Spanky’s ouster.

Making a prediction: When this is all said and done and the US not a glass parking lot (I know, even odds there) with Trump no longer in office, there will be a cry from both sides that we must "move on as a country, together" and not bother with prosecutions or investigations for the sake of "unity" and "not dredging up old stories" because they would "upset people".  There will be a tepid outcry from the farther Left, and then nothing will be done for at least 20 years, until the responsible parties are dead.

New guy gets it.

Hi, new guy!

If you’re not a guy, hi, new sentient!

Edit: not that the only “non-guy” option is “sentient”, I just...

The 21st century is hard.

It turns out that Rex was correct.  I retract my "fuck you" from LMNO.

I appreciate that. To be honest, I don’t log on here on weekends very often, so I was surprised how big this threadgot. I wasn’t that surprised when some people immediately started proving me right by, rather than Dok’s analysis of the HRC campaign’s flaws, went all in on calling her a cunt.

Some would say that her main flaw was having a vagina.

Welcome to the World Cup discussion thread!

(for those of you who care)

First up, Saudi Arabia vs Russia.  What a conundrum of who to root for!  The election meddlers and Crimean annexer vs the oil barons and supporter of Wahhabism.

I don't like to post on this forum (discordians shouldn't stick together yada yada), but this was so cool I couldn't resist.

Helps to remember to hail eris every fucking day.

I hear you; and looks like you hear me.

So, now that I said my piece, I'm comfortable in my position of "if it doesn't sound like it's about me, it's not about me".


But I do call myself progressive (or at least way left of the DNC).

So: the DNC platform has adopted and moved towards a few of the progressive/Sanders ideas, namely: single payer healthcare; universal basic income; increased minimum wage; criminal justice reform; climate change.

I don't think this would have happened without a lot of people loudly asking for it from their local/primary elections. But I could be wrong.

In the "small steps" strategy, this is what would be expected from a grassroots push against the Democratic moderate status quo that currently exists in Congress.

It should be noted, however, that when the Big Bet is on the table, not voting for the "not perfect, but more probable" is akin to voting for the "a shit demon" option.

Make sure you have low-to-moderate alcohol intake with naproxen.  It can really fuck up the liver.

Bad thing X happened because of seemingly reasonable concern Y

So, that entire wall of text can be summed up in one line? 


Apart from that, I have issues with the things you plug in for the X,Y values, as the wording of the premise lends the idea of objectivity.  The majority of your examples could be more accurate by substituting "was sold as an answer to" in place of "happened because of".  There seem to be deeper core reasons for doing terrible things to other humans, but doing those things were made palatable using loftier excuses.

I can totally see a reasonable, even-handed discussion from this post onward.

Nailed it.
