Re: Politics & Current Events

If we make it through this time as roughly the same country before Trump took office, imagine the books that will be written. Imagine all his enablers and suck-ups trying to whitewash history, Albert Spear style.

Re: Politics & Current Events

If Dems are smart (debatable) every candidate would run non-stop tv/radio/online ads with nothing but Mitch McConnell just admitting the tax cuts need to be paid for with cuts to social security & Medicare. Voting against your own self interest is what puzzles me most. These people do not ident...

Re: Better Call Saul (Again)

The look of hurt on Kim’s face when Jimmy reveals he was putting on the act is heartbreaking.

He has certainly lost a lot of his charm this season.

Re: Politics & Current Events

Imagine bragging that torturing children is a good policy because it is deterring asylum seekers (or what the GOP are calling "asylum tourists"). How can anyone get behind that, seriously? I mean shouldn't Christians be disgusted by this? Shouldn't everyone? If there are any conservative C...

Re: Better Call Saul (Again)

Kim is almost being portrayed as a victim of abuse at this time. She keeps justifying Jimmy's behavior, distancing herself, then coming back in to the relationship. That relationship is just going to get so much worse next season, and I am going to guess they will have one more full season, then a ...

Re: Politics & Current Events

The stock market had it's worse loss in 8 months. I'm sure a touch of it is Trump's trade war non-sense, but the bulk of it is surely interest rates unwinding. Fairly predictable and not really a politics thing. Well, the only stock market thread is some jaggoff trying to get people to buy weed sto...

Re: Journalism Thread

Even beyond that, IME. Among the Trumper/white aggrievement base in my life, they DEMAND such tactics. They view blatant lies as a legitimate use of political power as long as it helps their team. They've been brainwashed that this is what the other side has been doing for years. It's the pinnacle ...

Re: Politics & Current Events

The best thing that can happen is to have his nomination fail. It will rile the deadenders and get them to the pols. If he’s confirmed they do a victory lap for owning the libs which seems to be the entire point since the delay.

Re: The way too early, but I'm bored, Off-season Options Thread

Almora and Heyward is your center field platoon next year. Sign Harper. Spend a month trying to get Happ to play a Zobrist level second base, if not, he's pitching bait. If he can, he's valuable in a post-Zobrist era and can bounce around the field in 2018. Get Bote to passable in the corner outfie...

Re: Politics & Current Events

I have to get rid of Facebook. The knuckledraggers who never left home are hot-to-trot about Kavanaugh. I suspect it is because a lot of them did the same thing he did in high school. None of them went to college, so that is out of the question.
