I find the bag interesting, the podcast interesting, and the fact that Iím still subscribing to his patreon - interesting!

The bag: I get it. B list celebrity who doesnít want to be noticed.

Podcast: interesting. Some nonsense, plenty of interesting and well thought out positions.

The Patreon: I think he correlates well with many people, but he is not an expert. There are many fawning on him on Twitter (I challenged him on a topic I thought he was incorrect about), and many think he is God in relation to psychology. I think thatís dangerous.

He is, absolutely. But he's a necessary pantomime villain in the narrative. He's our very own window into the mindset of the average MAGA Hat wearing folks, sitting at home watching fox news wondering if they should buy silver during the commercials, or a new med alert bracelet. While also struggling with the Big Pharma commercials that the same news station keeps running.

No Iím actually stuck at Phoenix airport waiting for a delayed flight bored out of my brains

My point is what your viewpoints represent. Not what you're doing.

Absolutely not


CL stepped in front of a reporter and if you relied on the MSM for your information youíd have thought heíd be up for GBH for that encounter

Again, in the real world there is no equivalence.

Tats where we disagree

In my opinion if a Fox or Breitbart reporter did that in an Obama press conference thereíd be holy blue murder

So, In your opinion the physical coming together of the 2 people in each situation is the same?

Same in intent
Same in situation
Same in the physical contact

Jim Acosta assaulted that intern about as much as Cory Lewandowski assaulted that reporter by stepping in front of her. Letís see if the press hold Jim to the same standard !

These are the fine margin comments upon which wrong is being blurred into right. If you have to use these little extras to extrapolate 2 completely different situations into being the same - you are losing your argument in the real world.

I will concede however that many of our fellow countrymen and women are not living in the real world where the political spectrum is concerned and that's why such nonsense as what you've suggested above will dominate news cycles and "what about" cries for the next week.

See the left are out in force today defending a white male after an altercation with a young female...  ;)

Let's just nip this in the bud. There's no altercation. Call It what it is. He hasn't approached her, he hasn't moved from where he's standing. She's tried to take the Mic and he hasn't let her.

Yet again it's a spineless president putting his staff in situations they don't need to be in either physically, professionally, or morally. All while he stands and pontificates hate, division, and nonsense.

So far on my trials I have tried a Yellow tail Red Roo (stinkin), Barefoot Merlot (ok) and a Cotes Du Rhone (best so far and the cheapest). South American next i think.

Neither one of those would be bank breakers?

Trump is clearly using this as a desperate wedge issue to gin up last minute support, just like his lies and hype about the caravan.

Leaving that and the technical, legal/constitutional aspects aside though, I donít think opposition to affording citizenship to any child born on US soil is automatically right wing and bigoted.

A daycare worker went off the rails near where I live recently and stabbed some young, Chinese infants. The type of place she worked apparently cater to Chinese women coming to the States, having their kid here, and then taking off back home, kidís citizenship in tow. Is that something the US should be permitting?

There is a legitimate discussion to be had on this issue IMO.

There are many (including this topic) legitimate discussions that need to be had sooner rather than later - unfortunately the lunacy continues to prevail and it's a shouting match across the aisles.

What's the fix?

It's a bit more than just that. The president CAN'T change the 14th amendment. President in being wrong about something shocker.

He's just rallying for the election next week as he knows he can't change the moderate voters, so he is doubling down on the lunatics who want to make America White again.

I think that is nonsense :o ^^^^ He's the head of the Church, Top Dog, King of the Hill, top of the heap!

If he was espousing the same views as you I don't think you'd be long trotting them out!?

There's rogue pastors and individuals all over many religions making their living through charismatic preaching and preying on naturally existing predispositions - what does your papal leader say about Islam?

That aside - as I mentioned in my initial post we are facing an ever increasing mix of many attributes that were once confined to separate countries and "identities". Assimilating these mixes peacefully and seamlessly is a challenge, of that there is no doubt. Nationalism as it's currently being peddled from a political perspective is pissing in the wind of the reality of human movement throughout the world and is a futile effort.

I find the dehumanizing/downgrading of the human elements that make up any certain demographic to be dangerous rhetoric at best.

Much to respond to there Iceman.

No, I wouldn't want my family or myself living in a middle eastern society. It has nothing to do with Islam in isolation - it's the combination of the society that I have no interest in. I wouldn't want us living in an Asian culture either necessarily

So long as you continue to hold this view below - I have to argue you are straying into being morally crooked as opposed to straight. That is an incredibly large, and ignorant brush stroke (no matter how much you claim to know about Islam - which I won't argue could be more than me).

Quote
Islam is dangerous. True Islam is dangerous. I don't think it has a place in a functioning, peaceful western society.

You have always been devoted to the Catholic Church - what does your religion and your religious leader state about Islam? I doubt very much the Pope would let you slide with the above.
