GOP thug says she would have shot reporter

Gianforte was absolutely in the wrong and I take his violent outburst as evidence that he is probably not fit for office. I hope he loses. The cognitive dissonance on display from many that have come to his defense is the most regrettable part of the whole thing. There are very few legitimate applic

I love his sense of humor.









Maybe Karen Marshall was joking. Then again it's Montana, so who knows? It is still representative of absolutely nothing.

It's easy to find stupid people saying stupid things. The "vice president of programs for Gallatin County Republican Women" is not representative of anyone but herself and it is the height of intellectual dishone

They should rename "white privilege" to something else

Didn't both your parents raise you?

Yes, and this has given me the best possible chance of becoming a well adjusted and self sufficient human being that interacts with the surrounding society in a productive way. That I've managed to do this is (under any kind of standard) an indication that I h

They should rename "white privilege" to something else

The gametalk politics board has a proud tradition of calling out moronity in plain terms.

Speaking of:

tamir rice, eric gardner, philando castile, keith lamont scott, i cant name anymore but that guy who was shot in oklahoma for stepping out of his car. theres more people but i cant remeber t

Lootboxes

can you describe the legal issues you hinted at?

Ultimately I don't think there's a strong case for it, but the conversation goes something like this: To what extent are lootboxes gambling? You spend real money on the chance to earn some digital good. Occasionally, as is the case for TF2 hats, t

its not rare, i can name like 10 victims from the top of my head

Not that I'm prepared to concede that you being able to name ten black victims of police violence is indicative of anything particularly worthwhile, but go ahead and list these names anyway.

So apparently this is a video game forum.

When the game industry doesn't find itself embroiled in embarrassing controversies regarding gender politics or the clear disdain with which self described "journalists" regard their target audience, sometimes the topic of the day will actually have to do

Eminem blasts Trump in a free style rap at BET Awards and gives fans an ultimatum

You got a problem with buzz cuts? Of just bleached buzz cuts?

Bleached. I've been buzzing my hair since I was 13.

Famov really dislikes famous people huh



This is my favorite joke.

Eminem blasts Trump in a free style rap at BET Awards and gives fans an ultimatum

One of the things about being in a Metro Detroit public school in 2001 is that Marshall Mathers certainly did seem like the God of a great many people. You'd have been hard pressed to find a greater concentration of children with bleach blond buzz cuts, though unlike the star they were emulating the

Do you consider yourself more of a traditionalist or...

The most dangerous sentence in any language is: "We've always done things this way."

And the most terrifying words are "I'm from the government and I'm here to help."

Traditions do not justify themselves, but if we are indeed still living atop a summit of human accomplishment it is worth tryi

American Politics, The Donald, and Personal Friendships

The election brought me closer to my left leaning and centrist friends over a shared dislike of Donald Trump. We had a Clinton/Trump debate viewing party where I got half drunk on a work night and ranted about what I thought conservatism was supposed to be about.

My family is very politically div

The second amendment is not negotiable

If we ignore the insistence that firearm related massacres don't happen in other industrialized countries (because that's definitely not true) what you say is probably correct. Easy access to guns probably means more violent crime will be committed with guns, and there are no policies that aren't in

California Secession

As the commentary in this thread shows us most people only consider secession in terms of what they want from elections, and it demonstrates the lack of seriousness. It's yet another indication that the entire conversation was little more than grumbling from folks who didn't like the outcome of the

Federal Response to PR

I've spent so much time trying to find the right response to this. I'm seriously amazed at how hypocritical Famov can be.

"Not worth mentioning"? Really? Not worth mentioning that Donald Trump himself went bankrupt many times over? And he has the gall to call out Puerto Rico for not paying bac

Two killed, 24 wounded in Las Vegas shooting

One gunman with a fully automatic rifle. His name is (or was) Stephen Paddock.



This is the only picture they've released of him so far.

Federal Response to PR

Really, to put it more accurate, Trump waived it in response to bad PR.

That is literally exactly what he said.

Provided you look at a complex situation through a very hyper-simplified lens, sure. But it isn't exactly like Texas or Florida or any other part of the country is without questio

Federal Response to PR

What am I being an apologist for? I'm asking how you know, or perhaps just what you mean, when you say we've done "so little" and how we could have done otherwise such as there is "no excuse for it". It's a simple question.

And there's no excuse for it, either.

What a ridiculous thing to say. Of course there's an excuse. Puerto Rico is experiencing a crisis because it was hit by multiple hurricanes. That was totally unavoidable.

Wow. Hugh Hefner passed away

define "breakdown"

Fatherless children. Many single mothers do the best they can (and some don't, but that's beside the point) but there's an undeniable correlation between those that grew up with a father figure and success in life.
