Wingnutties out of control!

Generally an unmoderated forum for discussion of pretty much any topic. The focus however, is usually politics.

Why should everything posted be a "cogent, fact-based argument" anyway? Lighten up. :clap:
I think us "thin-skinned" people post our share of frivolous stuff. But on the topics that aren't frivolous, a "cogent, fact-based argument" is just more interesting/entertaining than mindless memes.

You should pick your "friends" more carefully. The next time I'm in the area, I'll look you up and we'll quaff a few and drown our miseries; my treat.

Then we'll mosey on over to the nearest Target and see if we can catch some respect on sale. :thumbup: :think:

Yeah, y'all a real riot. All 5 of you. OK

But on the topics that aren't frivolous, a "cogent, fact-based argument" is just more interesting/entertaining than mindless memes.
That would depend on your definition of 'frivolous'; whose arguments are 'fact-based', whose posts are 'more interesting/entertaining',
and lastly, your definition of 'mindless memes.
(You didn't answer the question: "Why should everything posted be a "cogent, fact-based argument" anyway?")

Why not inject a bit of humor or nonsense into what is otherwise a boring, monotonous, repetitive diatribe?
Lighten up; knock that "Libran lawer" chip off'n your shoulder! (you're a Libra?)

Racist Trump supporter calls 911 on black Lyft driver for not turning on the radio, gets permanently banned by Lyft, fired by his own boss and raises money for the black Lyft driver

$28,497 of $20,000 goal

:clap: :---P

Plus, the likely drunken idiot could have just played some music on the phone that he called 911 with.

Petition to the Senate:

"Andrew Saul is unfit to lead the Social Security Administration. A vote for Saul is a vote against Social Security."
Andrew Saul has no background in the field he's been chosen to lead.

There is no bottom to their ignorance.

HuffPost: Rep. Steve King Goes Full White Nationalist In Interview With Austrian Site.

Yep, this idiot believes in the Great Replacement and evidently lives in a congressional district made up of mostly similar minded racists.

"King said that he read the book and that it was “completely logical to me that this could come to pass.” He went on to describe how he believes George Soros, the billionaire philanthropist and bogeyman of the far right, might be footing the bill for the Great Replacement."

Trump’s next ambassador to South Africa happens to be a Mar-a-Lago member
Handbag designer Lana Marks would become the latest Mar-a-Lago member to join the U.S. diplomatic corps.


Lana Marks has no diplomatic experience, a history of fabricating her past, and a skill-set devoted primarily to making six-figure designer handbags....
Wow. Oh well, at least there's this:

She can open an outlet for her bags in Soweto.

"Lana Marks first got the idea to start a handbag collection when she couldn’t find a handbag to match a red suit she was wearing to a birthday celebration for Queen Elizabeth II."

That must have been terrible. It's so hard to imagine the trials and tribulations these people endure on a daily basis. Theirs is the burden of being shining examples of humanity for the rest of us.

I feel sure that her rich property developer father moved away from South Africa to Palm Beach for other than racial reasons and that this Mar a Lago club member would be an excellent choice to showcase our own racial harmony.

Ambassadorships have often been political rewards to otherwise unqualified people - sent to places where the main skill is to behave properly at banquets and ribbon-cuttings, but this one seems beyond the pale. There are a lot of rich people who are smart, reasonably competent at what they do and not crooks. And some of those may even be Mar-a-lago members, maybe. Doesn't Trump know any of those? I used to think it was an exaggeration to say that Trump intentionally picked the worst people he could find. It's getting harder to avoid believing that.

Could be that the worst people he can find are the best people that are willing to work for him. I sure wouldn't want to represent the racist pig in South Africa.

Well, that's depressing, not only for how things are but also for relying on the media to do its job competently as a solution. Barring that unlikelihood, it seems that the left's only option is to be better at fighting dirty and without reservation than the right, something I'm not sure we can pull off. After all, we're the ones that still believe in a functional democracy.

Something I have advocated for some time now. Not because I like it, and not because I think it's any way to run a "democracy," but because we're out of alternatives. They're like the Islamic "martyrs" - what can you do to somebody who is happily willing to below themselves up? What can you do to, or trade with, Republicans who are happily willing to blow the entire system up?
