Just because it takes one person to write that on a car does not mean there were not more people aware it would happen, saw it happen, or thought it was funny it happened.


Careful. Don't want to get into Orwellian territory.

It's all about politics, guys. That's all.

If you're a conservative, you love his executive orders, you love his court appointments, you love how he's taking many Obama regulations and rightfully ripping them apart, you love how he says what everyone else thinks but that you're not "supposed" to say. The lack of political correctness is amazingly refreshing after eight years of a guy who wouldn't flat out say he loved America without adding a "but". His cry against globalism and doing all he can to tear up any globalist agenda is also fantastic.

But if you're a liberal living in Manhattan with a gay husband who believes that recycling will save a polar bear and that we should all take sabbaticals to Tibet, yeah, you're probably pissed.

Your standards are laughably low. Obama was a much more collected individual and appointed some liberal judges appointments etc that I liked and I didn't treat him nearly as well as you are treating an unstable president that can't actually get legislative sh**t done.

I almost feel bad criticizing Obama as much as I did from 2008-2015 seeing how these Trump supporters blindly support Trump. Every flaw that Obama had, Trump has it worse and 10x more problems.

By the way I live in rural Georgia and used to be an independent (but still dem leaning) -- Trump, Cruz, and the tea baggers show that the GOP is pretty worthless right now.

That's fine. Everyone is entitled to their opinions. I think the biggest problem with the Democratic Party right now is their vault to the left. To many, including me, it makes Trump's tweets look mature compared to liberal's obsession with small and inconsequential groups.

The SJW left may be annoying, but that's mostly relegated to tumblr/twitter, and not in the actual politicians. Do you really think they are nearly as big of a concern to the world than Trump's instability and impulsive behavior? Do you really think they are as big of a concern as the GOP trying to push a garbage health care and tax cut bill that are unpopular? Like how do you even make a tax cut bill that is unpopular -- everyone loves tax cuts lol. Are you really fine with some of Trump's open appeals to racism? Are you fine with Trump saying stupid garbage on the daily?

I'm just really disappointed in where the GOP is headed. I used to think the dem party was the "virtue signaling, utopian party" and that the gop party tended to be more reasonable. But the last few years have shown that the dem party is somehow more reasonable than the gop lol.

See this is where I will politely disagree with you.

Think about 2012. Obama wins the election. As a Republican, it sucked. It sucked for Republicans in Congress, too. But then Trump wins and you have this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qlMWgQU3HME

How can I ever, EVER, vote for Democrats after that? When they break windows in D.C. during the inauguration. Republicans don't do that crap. They go to Waffle House and sip coffee whining about Obama but they aren't going to "head for the streets".

The immaturity of the left is so beyond the immaturity of the right. Trump looks like a grown up, these people look nuts.

California wants to make it against the law to refer to a man as a man. When you are dealing with people like that, who just 20 or 30 years ago would have been institutionalized and are now trying to say their view is correct, that borders on dangerous. Thus, Trump appears normal.

You think Republicans would have been better behaved if Hillary won?

Compared to the left? Absolutely, unequivocally. White Americans don't riot in public. We riot in the voting booth.

If only those darn colored folk would sit down and behave!

Who said it had anything to do with African Americans? I said white people riot in the voting booth. Doesn't have to be about racial issues.

Reaganfan: *makes it racial*
Reaganfan: it doesn’t have to be about racial issues

If White people don’t riot in public, but only in the voting booth, yet your problem with Democrats is in part that they rooted in reaction to Trump’s election, then obviously you’re saying it wasn’t White people rioting, it was those damn colored folks. Yknow, the ones who just can’t seem to learn their place.

I posted a video of white protesters! Grumps posted a picture of old white lady protesters!

You see, this is what you liberals do. You immediately realize you've lost the argument, so you go back to the race card.

But even that doesn't seem to be working anymore. Smiley

Okay again, why are you basing your political opinions based on crazy protestors? These are just angry loud people. There are these people in both parties. I don't care that there are some racist people in the GOP -- I care a lot more about the actual politician.

The actual politicians are way more important. And Trump has proven to be pretty dogpoop so far, both politically (being unable to pass meaningful legislation that helps the lives of americans), and stylistically.

What do you mean by stylistically?

This is just Islamaphobic red meat that could likely set US foreign policy back decades

It isn't about red meat to the base.

Everything Trump does stems from his narcissism and insecurity. The Iran deal blowback from the generals and Trump advisors is just further proof that Obama>Trump. Deep down he knows this, which is why he is lashing out. 

This is one of the silver-lining about the Trump years. No matter how much he tries to erase Obama achievements. He will never be seen as a better president by the majority of Americans and it eats him up every day.

And I love it.

Nah I disagree. When it comes to masculinity, Obama was the fairy unicorn college nerd. Trump went to Military school, hooked up with more women than most guys could dream of and could pay Obama's college tuition with one pen stroke.

Trump is much more of a "man" in the classic red white and blue all-American boy terms. That is one major reason white America turned the electoral map blood red for him and he is now in the White House and trying to dismantle the eight year blunder that was Barack Obama's presidency.

In white America, Obama 2016 was Carter 1980 and Trump 2016 was Reagan 1980. The only difference is because there are more people and minorities who make up bigger segments of the electorate, Trump wins 300+ electoral votes instead of Reagan's 400+.

No true Scotsman fallacy at its best. Glad to see that you even put man in quotations. There's at least a part of you that recognizes the whole point is bunk.

Sure, I totally get what you are saying but you are sounding like an elite.

I recommend liberal professor Joan Williams' take on the issue:
http://wvpublic.org/post/nine-things-liberals-dont-understand-about-white-working-class

White working class folks tend to admire the very rich, but really resent professionals. “These (professionals) are the people who are ordering them around every day, often disrespectfully," she said, such as the college kid who gets promoted ahead of you, or the doctor or teacher who condescends to you.

And the rich? “That’s what the white working class would like to be,” she said.

“They don’t want to make all the cultural changes required for them to become professional families. They just want to be exactly the way they are, living their lives the ways they’ve always lived them with the values they’ve always had…but with more money.”

Clinton represented the condescension of professionals, she says. Trump represented their dream.

Voted A on the first two, no opinion on him calling people SOBs.

I get aggravated when people like LeBron James say Trump is "dividing" America due to his opinions on the national anthem protests.

The people taking a knee during the anthem are the ones beginning the divisions. They started it. That's the divide. Trump saying what millions of others agree with isn't dividing us.

Fake outrage over things that make no sense. That's why the Democratic Party isn't in positions of power.

"They started it" doesn't absolve Trump of responsibility for the effect of his own statements. The issue was created by players kneeling, but Trump's over the top reaction to it made the issue even more polarizing. It's not like only one person can be divisive at a time.

HisGrace, there is no legitimate issue here. Okay? The issue is, the African American community is in shambles. They have the highest dropout rates, the highest crime rates, the highest murder rates, the highest out of wedlock birth rates...the list goes on and on and on.

And it's not Hillary Clinton's fault, it's not Barack Obama's fault, it's not Donald Trump's fault...it's their fault.

You hear these people on the left saying "Whites don't care when a cop shoots a black guy!" You want to know the truth? Whites also don't care when a cop shoots a white guy.

Remember the YouTube comedy clip of "Indifferent White Guy"? It's a parody but it's a funny parody for a reason:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SMqR2XVnV-4

Whites are indifferent when it comes to criminality. They have rejected it out almost outright. If it wasn't for my screwed up millennial generation, things would be better and Trump would have won a Reagan-style victory.

African Americans keep protesting things that make no sense. You can't get angry when there is a justified police shooting. I'm tired of it. Why not get angry at the violence and black on black crime in places like Chicago?
17  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Trump's Katrina: The ongoing crisis in Puerto Rico on: September 26, 2017, 08:05:07 pm
Next Tuesday is too late.

Anyway, it’s time Puerto Rico became a state. They pay taxes, they fly our flag, they are citizens, they can become president (yet aren’t allowed to vote in the general), no passport is needed to travel there. I suspect a lot of people don’t know most of that, and I bet the president didn’t know, which is the most likely reason for his delayed and weak response.

They are as American as anyone in the mainland and should finally be treated as such.
Basically this. Hurricane Maria was the strongest hurricane in a decade, and American citizens are going to die if Trump doesn't get up off his ass, stop tweeting about the NFL, and go help Puerto Rico and the USVI. It's a humanitarian crisis and Trump needs to be held completely accountable for any loss of life that occurs as a result of his administration's negligence.

Or maybe if we stop spending money on fictional things trying to determine how much polar ice caps melting cause bears to have diarrhea, maybe we could spend it on better forecasting tool to see storms like Maria and give people more time to prepare?

Nah I kinda saw the difference in white culture between suburban high school educated whites and the more intellectual and wealthy whites. I saw states flipping while traditional flipped states would go to Hillary.

I was typically mocked for my opinion.

Trump seems to do well in the blue collar states (Ohio, Pennsylvania, Michigan) whereas I think more upscale whites in Virginia and Colorado will be a problem for him. Florida I have no clue.

I've been playing with the demographic calculator on 538, and even if Trump loses Romney's Hispanic numbers and the turnout is increased overall, he keeps it extremely competitive in the electoral college due to the turnout of non-college whites. In fact, if we can surmise that Trump will do better with black voters than Romney did (you can only go up from there), even if by a small percent, Trump's electoral votes gain drastically.

In fact, many of my calculations show a plausible scenario where Trump loses the popular vote by 1%, but wins a comfortable electoral college victory.

If that's the case, why is it that after Trump's remarks, NFL teams and owners, some of which even include Trump supporters, were kneeling in record numbers?

In all honesty? I don't know. I think it's an awful business decision. Maybe they feel white people will get over it while if they don't stand with their players then the players may walk.

As someone who often empathizes with Trump, I'd say narcissistic, old school, sex obsessed, business oriented and probably a little paranoid. Pretty much most white guys in America.

I know it's Buzzfeed, but this article actually explains pretty well why banning Chad is a terrible idea.

Didn't we go through this in 2000?

Liberals seem to think the divisions are white people who are also not kneeling. In other words, in mainstream white America, there is no reason to kneel. Which...is...kinda true. So then those protesting end up looking like tools.

I get aggravated when people like LeBron James say Trump is "dividing" America due to his opinions on the national anthem protests.

The people taking a knee during the anthem are the ones beginning the divisions. They started it. That's the divide. Trump saying what millions of others agree with isn't dividing us.
