re: New article quoting Brad Pitt: Hollywood,Banks,Politicians running global pedo network - funnystuff
Does anyone have a link to the video where he actually says this? The article linked does not provide one, and neonnettle doesn't exactly feel like a reliable source. Other headlines from their front page include "Catholic Church Vows to Protect Pedophile Preists from the Law" and "The Universe is a...

re: High School Girls' Football - funnystuff
Damn, what a wasted opportunity to effect real, positive change. She found a way to pursue her passion while providing value to her community by going out there and starting up a private league. That could have been a hell of an inspiring story for girls about forging your own path in this world, ex...

re: Trump Inauguration morning: Based Rand Paul describes his solution to Obamacare. Thoughts? - funnystuff
His association pools proposal is the biggest thing we could do to drop health insurance costs quickly. But I just can't see it ever actually happening. Can you imagine the pure pant-shitting panic that would overtake the corporate lobbyists if our government dedicated its resources to organizing...

re: say it ain't so BERNIE - funnystuff
And Trump hired a team of attorneys to defend him in the Russian probe. That doesn't mean he's guilty. Not in this country. Let's not follow the left's lead of dramatizing every mundane act....

re: Media trying to cause violence again. "It Feels Like a Developing Dictatorship" - funnystuff
Well, yea. We've been a developing dictatorship for the last 70 years. Virtually every presidency over this stretch has expanded the role of the executive over the other branches. Some of us have been warning people like Mika about it for years. It's nice that they're finally starting to pay attenti...

re: Startling Admissions from Chaffetz: Deep State in Charge - funnystuff
5 months is plenty of time to establish a tone. It's always easier to set the course correctly the first time than to change it. As things are going now, a lot of the trump administration needs to change course in order to follow through on his deep state promises....

Just read the whole thing. Holy shite. I already knew of just about every one of those stories separately, but reading that story of it all connecting really made it hit home. I'm recording the midnight showing...

re: Is Conservatism the natural political reaction to "Fear" ? - funnystuff
Thanks for circling back to this. I think it's something that's important enough that leaving it as was would have been a missed opportunity. So here's a few thoughts [quote]this might be agree-to-disagree territory because i guess it depends on what you think of things like reward-based decision m...

[quote]Breit Bart is a mouthpiece for Trump[/quote]Do you not think that it's important to know what trump is saying? Even if you are certain that the information is false, knowing what the "president's mouthpiece" has to say about it seems like a pretty necessary condition to having a fully info...

re: CNN: "jaw-dropping hypocrisy" of Trump supporters - funnystuff
The world's a big, complex, messy place. That necessarily means that you will never find a source that's able to tell you everything about anything. Which is why reading sources originating from multiple points of view is so important. No one should ever get all of their news from breitbart, but ...

re: CNN: "jaw-dropping hypocrisy" of Trump supporters - funnystuff
I think his assertion is that visible displays of killing the siting president is more likely to cause people to want to kill the sitting president. So CNN did not report on the Obama-based production in 2013 bc they didn't want anything bad to happen to Obama. But now they r reporting the play beca...

re: CNN: "jaw-dropping hypocrisy" of Trump supporters - funnystuff
I agree with all of that, and it's part of what makes CNN wretched. But I think we can separate all of that from a production of Shakespeare in the park. Direct that anger where it's due: CNN and the Dem party (to name only a very few). At the same time, I don't understand the people who see...

re: CNN: "jaw-dropping hypocrisy" of Trump supporters - funnystuff
I loathe CNN too, and they are certainly wretched. But that doesn't stop republicans from occasionally being hypocritical. And it is plainly hypocritical to be outraged by the Trump Shakespeare in the park if you were aware of the Obama Shakespeare in the park 4 years earlier without feeling any ...

I know that it's tough to argue against a group of people simultaneously, so I respect the effort you are putting into this.
