Political Discussion Thread (With Rules)


Recommended Posts

The nomination is nothing more than a PR stunt whose purpose is to distract voters from the ongoing Trump scandals. Currently those are “Losergate”, and the negligent homicide of hundreds of thousands of Americans for political gain, and the sabotage of the Postal Service for political gain. (Bountygate is so last month.)

I feel this needs to be shared.  

If Doc Democracy or I start cursing or getting upset You'll know it is the election that has caused it,. I voted and helped take mum to vote. Had to walk the wheelchair down the hill as it would

That article does rather take the shine off simply getting the nomination.  And please.  He may not have started a war, but he supports violent groups regularly in his tweets.

But others were discussing charges of GENOCIDE in international court which requires "with the specific intent to destroy, in whole or in substantial part, a national, ethnic, racial, or religious group"

 

I've never used genocide (I don't think);  it probably isn't technically correct, altho the aspect that blacks are more at risk may WELL be a part of his calculus.  (And doesn't a half million constitute a substantial part?  If most governors had not acted, how many Black-community deaths would there have been?)  That does suggest a genocidal link.  But that's also the weakest aspect...particularly as I *do* consider his failure to act as a crime against humanity.

How about a new scandal?

The Trump Treasury Department siphoning congressionally appropriated funds meant to pay for 9/11 workers' healthcare, or so the article claims. Reading the article, I don't know if the funds were siphoned or just withheld.

Here's a thought.

 

If someone could prove that the Norwegian politician was paid by Trump to make the nomination, would any of us be even slightly surprised?

Is it coincidental that...gee, the guy gets on Fox News to make sure it's publicized???

 

Yeah, it's a stunt.

You'd never successfully sell the idea that Trump was intentionally trying to kill - in whole or substantial part - America.

 

Bad judgement call?  Yes.  Attempting to kill off all of America?  Come on, guys, nobody actually believes that. 

 

There's such a fine line between, "attempting to kill off" and, "not caring if they die," isn't there?

Yeah, it's a stunt.

 

From what Cohen (Trump's former lawyer) has said on his book-promotion tour, what Trump does is send out someone to contact one of Trump's friends or supporters. Then the promise is made that if the friend does something on behalf of Trump that Trump will make sure that the favor is more than repaid, either directly or indirectly.

 

Cohen made it sound like Trump treats his peers as if they were valuable and doesn't stiff them like he does vendors and contractors.

 

I wouldn't be surprised if the nomination is a quid pro quo, especially considering the timing after the Woodward taped interview excerpts were made public.

I could use an extra $6/day if anyone is interested. And I'll spend it responsibly on housing and staple foods.

 

Should I put up a picture of myself with no shirt and a swollen belly? (Or better, a Hawaiian shirt to cover my swollen belly?)

 

:D

Out of self defense, the camera will refuse to take the shirtless picture.

Transsexual Satanist Anarchist Wins Republican Nomination

 

https://www.the-sun.com/news/1463548/transsexual-satanist-anarchist-wins-nomination-new-hampshire-sheriff/

 

DiMezzo is the High Priestess of the Reformed Satanic Church. Her campaign slogan was "F*** the Police".

 

She attributes her win to voter stupidity in not researching the candidates and what they stand for.

Her analysis certainly seems spot-on.

While still an interesting bit I originally read that as "Transsexual Satanist Arcanist" which would have been even better.

There isn't a need to even report on this sort of thing any more. At this point every bad-news story should just automatically end with, "President Trump, of course, made it worse."😞

And somehow I glanced over it so quickly that I got the impression that she was a stripper? 

 

Anyway, point is, try harder next time. 

 

I might be wrong but I believe that stripping is part of the rituals of the Reformed Satanic Church.

From the point of view of a policy wonk, I'd have to say that it's very important to me to know exactly how Trump made it worse rather than just knowing he has without any additional details.
