It's funny because my wife loves and respects her even though her policies are opposite of what she believes, and she hates Trump even though she agrees with his policies. This is the problem with the Left and with many women...they vote with their hearts instead of their minds

Beto and Gillium came too close for comfort for me. Both of those guys could have served in the USSR and fit like a glove.

The questions themselves weren't that big of a deal. The guy was a complete cunt when that lady tried to grab the mic from him. All media is garbage, but Acosta took sleaze to the next level on multiple occasions now. Good riddance.

So, would this be considered a "blue wave?" From what I've read, this is a pretty typical election cycle.

I believe in 2010, Obama lost 60+ seats in the house and 6 in the Senate, and added to that total in 2014.

Bill Clinton lost 53 seats in his first midterm.

I'll take a bigger majority in the Senate and 2 years of stacking the courts any day to a slim majority in the House. Pelosi will serve as a perfect foil for Trump leading up to the 2020 elections.

Frankly, I think it is pretty amazing that Trump and Republicans did as well as they did despite the crazed nature of the Democrats and all of the built in advantages they have with the lapdog media, academia and Hollywood.

I'm constantly amazed at how little my peers (who are Democrats) know about the candidates they voted for.

If you have political discussions with lots of folks, you will find that few know much about issues. The best way to describe most people , both D and R, is "fanboy." That is, people choose a political party like they choose a favorite sports team, and just want their team to win. Partisans do not want to hear their Party supports issues they disagree with any more than the Dallas fan (there is one somewhere, I think) wants to hear his team only won because the ref blew a call.

MY point is there are much worse things to worry about. EVen if SJWs are ended completely, there will always be those without sufficient skills to make a good living, who want to be taken care of by the state

Look, it’s not about whether we take care of such peoples. We do and we have and we will continue to provide them with at least a subsistence style living if they are too incompetent to manage any sort of work. We don’t have much choice as slavery has been abolished and laziness is incurable without deprivation as a goad.

The issue is that SJWs are insisting that the exceptional and the competent be dragged down to the level of the below average and the incompetent so that “equity” may be achieved. This is not a new concept, and in fact is in full effect already in most of the nations of the world. Wanna know why Africa always seems to be terminally poor? Cultural communism is in play. Anyone who displays an ability to produce is set in harness by the ones who can’t or won’t produce anything, with the goad of “supporting the family” or the community. Thus as the best drug back to slavery or mediocrity by the worst. And so they remain forever poor and third world despite having fertile land and many natural resources.
The only thing they produce are cruel and rapacious warlords who throw off the mantle of communism for the cloak of piracy.

some pharma drug that is way worse for the mind and body.

VA "beneficiaries" are at high risk of being prescribed SSRIs, Ambien, and other psychotropic drugs that can badly mess up the mind. I would like to know the perpetrator's Rx history and what drug(s) he was taking in the days leading up to this event.

The military industrial complex combines with the medical industrial complex:
Step 1: train young people to kill;
Step 2: send them to a foreign environment with an impossible mission, e.g. separating the "good" Muslims from the "bad" Muslims who are trying to kill them;
Step 3: require them to follow incomprehensible secret rules of engagement that ensure failure and PTSD;
Step 4: poison their brains with psychotropic prescriptions that push their behavior in violent and suicidal directions;
Step 5: Profit!

An active duty soldier on Ambien and who knows what else walked off base one night in Afghanistan, murdered a whole family, set the corpses on fire, and walked back with no recollection of what he had done nor why.

Guns did not cause this problem, and guns cannot solve it. We are subsidizing infinitely these toxic placebos that don't solve anything but do cause more problems. As long as the recipients of those subsidies (PhRMA, prescribers, pharmacists with 10-years of post-secondary education counting to 30, all the ivory tower "educators" paid to train these people, pharmacy benefit "managers" AKA profiteers, distributors, etc.) continue to make policy, we will continue to see this problem. It happens more often in the USA than in Canada because more people are on psychotropic prescriptions here than in Canada. Lots of places have guns, but nobody can match the USA in poisoning our own population with infinitely subsidized toxic placebos.

I like how Trump turned all the PC nonsense upside down, and used the race card on the left. Fucking brilliant.

Summary... people who love "change" are virtuous, forward looking, wonderful human beings. People who are resistant are unenlightened, uneducated, thugs. Oh... and almost all the people who love change are Democrats while those who resist change are Republicans and/or Trump supporters.

Here's a clue for the NYT: Republicans and Trump supporters are open to change just fine. The issue is the TYPES of change.

How many Democrats are for these changes:
• border wall
• skills-based and assimilation-based immigration policy
• trade agreements that aren't as unfavorable to Americans
• flat-tax system

Oh, I guess the Democrats are the unenlightened ones after all!

That shows you what Democrats actually think about these oil wars despite their outward objections.

In addition, Africa also has by far the greatest levels of genetic and linguistic diversity on earth. People of extremely different origin and culture living right next to each other leads to war. Diversity divides people. Too much diversity is a very bad thing in and of itself.

Africans may all look black to us, but they are really not one group at all. Genetically, humans are best classified at the highest level as white, Asian, and two dozen kinds of black people.
America falls near the middle of the genetic diversity distribution – the top of the hump – with African countries being the most diverse and Latin American ones being the least diverse.
The basic reasoning behind the hump-shaped model is that though genetic diversity is important for specialization and innovation, too much diversity has historically led to social instability and a dearth of collaboration.
“Diversity stimulates technological innovation critical for growth, but more diverse countries also have more civil wars,” Galor said. The idea that homogenous societies work more collaboratively is supported by evolutionary biology, he added.

Colbert staunchly denounces those soyboy thugs on Twatter. Good for him - credit where credit is due.

Fuck him he called for it.

If law enforcement in Florida had any sense she should be hanged by the neck until dead, plain and simple. Snipes is a traitor and is looking to corrupt the election process. Forced deportation or hanging is appropriate.

Folks, If the SCOTUS is seen as partisan and rubber-stamping policies that are seen as unconstitutional by half the country, then we have a constitutional crisis.

What else is new? I've heard Left wingers complaining about the Constitution, electoral college and State's representation as long as I can remember. Especially this week in terms of the Senate. "Why does Montana get 2 Senators the same as California!!!"

Every time Liberals lose at the ballot box it's a "crisis".

Trump for the longest time was the popular culture icon of wealth and what people strive to be (I still do honestly).

He only became a "racist" when he decided to not run as a Democrat, and you know how Democrats treat people who decide to leave the plantation.
