Hey, decader! Two decader here. Do you  know about the new Creative/Destructive chart developed around 2004?

It might clear things up.

Quick question: when Obama was elected, what civil rights did the Republican voter think would be taken away under his administration?

That's too bad, she's one of the more interesting people on the board.

More to the point has Trump said anything expansionist, especially any kind of stupid bullshit "well historically [insert foreign country or territory] already belongs to us" (although not limited to this). Most of what I've heard of him seems to be more isolationist.

Would it be of any concern to you that his picks for Foreign Policy advisors are hawkish expansionists?

Would you like to recite the Dead Parrot sketch next, or go straight to the Cheese Shop?

Let me be more specific. I'm complaining about the fact that you mindlessly agree with each other on matters of opinion.

Do you even READ this board?

The fact that people are agreeing on this should underscore its import, if anything.

They're assholes. My impression

Could you clarify how you came about this impression?

is that they're young and naive, predominantly white with upper-middle-class parents, and they get their news from Facebook. As I've already pointed out, many of them didn't even fucking vote

Also,

You got it.

The end result seems to be the same, but I was trying to clarify that the net balance of lies::truth was the same.  It's the signal-boosting repetition that has thrown it out of wack.

I would posit that this definition takes far too narrow a view of how one defines the proportion of fact vs. disinformation. If 30 sources claim that alkaline water is good for you for every 1 source that claims it is woo, do you consider that a 1:1 ratio?

Good point.  I hadn't looked at it from the reverse view. 

Apropos of very little, it really seems like Colbert's "truthiness" routine has become entirely normalized by now.  In the campaign, there would be reporting that Trump claimed the rates of violent crime were skyrocketing.  This isn't true, and occasionally a news report would mention that in passing, but they were more focused on the Trump voter feeling like it's true, which the news somehow decided was a valid reason for voting Trump. 

"I voted for someone based on false information, but it felt good" doesn't seem like a good place to start a conversation, though.

I don't mean to come down on you specifically, but these tag-team style shenanigans are wildly out of place in this thread.

Sorry to disappoint but these tag-team style shenanigans are pretty much the whole board  :lulz:

I'm currently shopping for some kind of personal hidden camera, such as pen cameras, buttonhole cameras, etc. Is there anyone here who has experience with any of these things, and care to make an endorsement?

I initially read this as "butthole cameras" and spent a solid 15-30 seconds pondering the market for that.

I just did exactly the same thing. We're not well, Nigel. Maybe it's unhealthy Freudian associations all the way down. I'm holding years of exposure to LMNO personally responsible  :argh!:

Would anyone be surprised that I know for a fact this exists?

1. If When you fuck up, apologize honestly.

Quite right. Sorry about that.

SERIOUSLY! If that helps prevent some really nasty consequences for women and the environment and everything else under threat I would be okay with Dems drowning kittens. Filibustering is their job, and they will likely, as usual, fail at it.

I mean, Obama tried to give everyone healthcare, and the GOP shut the damn government down over it.

That's actually not quite how it went.  Obama DID give everyone healthcare and then shut the government down when the GOP tried to take it away.  Obama was doing his job correctly.
