What we seem to have here is an American president who is looking out for America instead of looking out for massive multi-national corporations.

In essence, it's democracy vs oligarchy. I hope democracy wins.

This is a quote that should not be in jail. It would be a shame to delete it. In fact it should be put in the best comments as it's going to be prophetic.

Patrick deserves to have the site he wants. I would never claim to suggest that he needs to follow my suggestions.

That being said, I sadly must join Dan and abandon the website to the trolls. They can have their circle jerk now and Goran deserves the job. He's a lying vile piece of shit and he'll fit right in. The only reason I stuck around was because Patrick emailed me and asked me to moderate, however I'm going to decline that now because having Goran moderate the politics forum is untenable and despite several well-liked people agreeing with me, I guess he's here to stay.

Peace everyone.


If you feel the need to censor the one sentence calling Goran a liar, then fine, but the rest of the quote is down right historic. I suspect that with Iwog gone readership will plummet and patrick.net will become yet another alt right echo chamber. Looking at the articles on the index page, it looks like this has already happened.

Well, Democrats got what they wanted. Hyper sensitive society where gag (or not), you're guilty before all the facts are out.

These are the fires Takei and Al Franken have been stoking for 12 months in an attempt to burn Trump, but looks like they ended up burning themselves.

Fuck em.

Pat.net was doing fine until somebody became President and some posters lost their shit.

When people are butthurt, they get more butthurt easily. It's not unusual.

I simply ignore flounced anon users. Added 3 in 48 hours, maybe less. Butthurt people could ignore users they don't like.

With ignore, I don't see any reason why somebody would leave the forum over a poster or two.

People are peddling butthurt conspiracy theories because of butthurt, when you don't agree or call them out for the nutty, evidence-free BS it is, you're uncivil and a horrible person.

I still like a "reddit" style idea, with categories. Maybe 5 of the most popular threads, then the top 5 categories on the landing page.

I'm off to pee on some hookers before bed, nighty night all.

A Red Bluff Daily News crime log from February 2017 reported: “Kevin Janson Neal: 43, of Corning was arrested Tuesday in the 6900 block of Bobcat Lane in Rancho Tehama. He was booked into Tehama County Jail on the charges of assault with deadly weapon not firearm or force, great bodily injury likely, battery on person, crime against elder or dependent adult, discharge firearm with gross negligence and false imprisonment with violence. Bail was $160,000.”

Neal’s neighbor told the news media early on that his roommate was shot and that the gunman was a felon named Kevin. The witness, Brian Flint, “said he received a call in the morning that his roommate was injured and that his truck had been stolen too,” reported The Record Searchlight, quoting him as saying, “The crazy thing is that the neighbor has been shooting a lot of bullets lately, hundreds of rounds, large magazines. We made it aware that this guy is crazy and he’s been threatening us.”

A past history of felonies and the neighbors had called police to report him shooting behind his house. This tragedy is on the hands of the local cops.

How about a link to a good reference on Roy Moore's alleged actions.


OK, here it is:

Roy Moore’s Accuser Worked for Democratic Leaders and Is Actively Campaigning for Moore’s Opponent.

We have just received information that one of the women accusing Alabama senatorial candidate Roy Moore of soliciting dates from her when she was a teenager and he was in his 30’s is not only a passionate progressive, but she has actually worked for the DNC and is actively campaigning for Moore’s opponent, Doug Jones.

Deborah Wesson Gibson, aka Debbie Gibson, was named in the Washington Post article accusing Moore, and social media evidence makes clear that she is a fervent supporter of Jones and Democrats in general, and has even worked for the DNC.

Wesson Gibson is a sign language interpreter, who has interpreted at rallies for both Joe Biden and Hillary Clinton.

She has also vocalized fervent support for Jones.

Also, of course, she is a vocal opponent of Roy Moore and is clearly dedicated to him losing.

Consider how suspicious this is – a woman comes forward 39 years later with a vicious never-before-made accusation – and how is one suppose to defend oneself and prove it is a lie 39 years later? Welcome to politics in America.

The establishment doesn’t want Roy Moore, a man who can’t be bought or bribed, to pull up their political skirts and overturn their tables of corruption and greed!

It's a reaction?? Are you saying you can't help and stop yourself from attacking all the other posters here? You've been on a tear for the last 6 days.

Why can't you stop being uncivil?

Here's a novel concept, why not set an example and become extremely civil in all your posts and lead by example.

Or, you can live in the past and chase some sort of past boogieman member that's not even listed in the Users list. Do you want to live in the past or move forward to the future?

someone should have asked him that before he abandoned the forum. no one did or cared or gave one fuck. Same goes for Dan and a lot of other people who arent around now.


Iwog and Dan both made their positions clear before they left. The failure to stop sniper from coming back, the takeover of patrick.net by alt right trolls, the leaving of long time posters over the past few years, and the inability to have constructive dialogs are the reasons they left. Whether or not you agree with their assessment of patrick.net, this site has lost a lot of moderates from both sides of the aisle over the past few years, so there is at least some merit to their criticism. It's a shame that they left because the two of them combined produced most of the content that isn't outright propaganda.

Single payer.


Single payer would be an easier step from where we are than a free market. This is the unfortunate reality, and why critics have blamed Obamacare authors of strategizing towards single payer.

I recently started a new career as a health insurance broker. ALL the financially well off and healthy clients are finding ACA alternatives. The ACA is left with the dregs of society, pushing the costs higher.

I thought the financial system was ripe for corruption. That is NOTHING compared to healthcare. Everywhere you look its one absurd motive after another. Ever wonder why a medicaid recipient gets sent to 25 different specialists when diagnosed w cancer? Its because every bill is covered by uncle sam and the specialists all scratch each others' back by referring the patient to their services. The entire system is broken

Trump contributed to their demise, while Obama contributed to their rise.


Tnat's pure bullshit. ISIS was a product of bush, plain and simple. It's been well researched and documented time and time again. Wilful ignorance isn't the same as factual information. . ISIS was being set back steadily town by town before trump took office.


Ignorance seems to be your choice. Obama let them march right in.

U.S. troop withdrawal let Islamic State enter Iraq, military leaders say.

A number of former and current military leaders who were in power when all U.S. troops left Iraq are saying today that the complete exit left the door open for the Islamic State’s land grab.

The assessment comes from the Army chief of staff, a former Marine commandant, a former U.S. Central Command chief, a former defense secretary and, privately, from the officer now running the war in Iraq against the Islamic State, also known as ISIL and ISIS.

The military officials say a residual American air-and-land combat force could have steeled Iraqi Security Forces and blunted the Islamic State’s invasion of northern and western Iraq last winter and spring.

As usual, the devil is in the details, and the details have not been released. No one knows if it was a good deal, mediocre deal, or bad deal.


WTF. You claim Trump made a bad deal because he does not know how to negotiate. Then you claim no one knows if it's a good deal, or a bad deal.
Seems your goal is to blindly attack Trump, no matter what he does. If Obama made this same deal, you would be praising him, isn't it?
How about some political honesty, guys?


It seems that's all he has. To blindly attack, without facts, anything Trump is trying to accomplish. It must be sad to hate your country so much you want it to burn to the ground.

Reminds me of another anecdote, it's like flying on a airplane and looking over across the aisle and hating the guy sitting by the window. Then you're hoping that the pilot will crash the plane, which will take out that guy, forgetting that you're on the plane too.
