    So sick.

    I love how Steve Kind tries to make praising white supremacy and white nationalism akin to appreciating western civilization. Some people just swallow up that kind of sloppy logic without a second thought.
  3. ^ So many of these predators are getting a second chance. It's disgusting, but not unexpected.

    He just does not give a damn who he hurts. Yes. I wish I had more compassion, but I don't.

    We are incredibly lucky that the first time an authoritarian came for our country he turned out to be extraordinarily incompetent. I only hope that the next time we aren't caught asleep at the switch because we won't get this lucky again. That's not to say that he hasn't caused incredible damage to many people and our country at large, but it could have been much, much worse. Of course, it isn't over yet, but at least the end is (hopefully) in sight.
  7. I'm glad. This show has more lives than Jason, but at least they try to bring the drama.

    How sad is it that when POTUS gets a platform we all have to brace ourselves knowing that he is going to use that time to incite more racist hate and violence? It's nice that the Democrats will get to respond, but you can't unring a bell.

    I do think AOC makes a lot of good points. I love that she gives the GOP no quarter. Time will tell on her relationship with the Democratic party. That HUD issue is horrific.

    Exactly! He doesn't think he can do it, he is doing it. God help us all and especially federal employees.

    I hope she's right, even though I know only someone green would make a remark like this so publicly. This has to be a hard time to learn the ropes because the stakes are so high.

    ^ Awful and I don't see much hope in stopping the Saudi's from doing whatever they want. Money talks and right now we have a president who listens to little else. I hope she can survive in prison until help comes from somewhere.

    I think this person makes a good point. I don't find it worrying though because I agree with others that his window has closed.

    He's just like Sasse, nothing but talk. Here's some good news. Let's hope other state policy makers follow this model.

    This was such a sad article. Just the idea the people can't even be stitched up after surgery is awful, never mind that these super bugs could spread. It doesn't help that our own government doesn't care at all and won't be bothered to try to persuade BN's government to let in more meds. At the same time, what is stopping Egypt from letting in more medical aid?

    To secure donors and gain name recognition I suppose. I do wish we had a system more like Canada's, but politics were bound to dominate the next two years in any case. It's like the Kardashians or the Royals. If you don't want to hear about it 24/7, you have to make a conscious decision to block it out. Even then you'll hear about it more than you want to.

    What is wrong with our culture that so many people seem to rush in and attack the victims of these mass shootings? It's so sick. I only saw a few mins of a Louis CK stand up once. He made a joke about how when you bring your kids home a puppy, you are basically bring home pain and death. I can't argue his point, but I turned it off. He just wasn't for me. I did like the show Better Things that he's unfortunately involved with.

    The problem is it is who about 25% of us want to be. You don't have to be in the majority to cause incredible damage.
