Comment Re:"self investigate" == alt.right (Score 0) 781

We've been trying to warn the right this would be the result of their constant pimping, but they'll do anything to get elected, fuck the consequences.

We've been trying to warn the left that their cozying up with #BlackLivesMatter was going to result in more people being killed, including all of the cops who have needlessly lost their lives in targeted attacks... all so you could try to gain more elected seats.

As you said... and as Hillary so vividly said when bringing the mothers of attempted cop killers on stage with her... "f#%& the consequences"

You must have missed the Bush years when the Dems did much the same.

I wonder then where the GOP got the idea from... or filibustering supreme court nominees. No, not a Dem idea at all.

Now thanks to Reid largely getting rid of the filibuster, the GOP is poised to teach a lesson to the dems which will resonate for a generation.

I'm no Trump fan, but the tears from the left over the last few weeks have been delicious... so it must be asked: how do you like them apples?

Not at all. Colbert at least understood the role he was trying to play and came off as funny to many on both sides. Stewart was just so reflexive that he thought that he as a progressive, playing the part of an unabashed progressive would be funny to all... he wasn't.

I haven't given the new guy much of a shot yet, but did recently watch the Tomi Lahren interview (my first time actually seeing/hearing) her speak... where she utterly mopped the floor with him, something I think he even knew in the end.

So when an extreme left-wing nutjob gun owner went into the Family Research Council office in DC, complete with a bag of chick-fil-a and a list of 'hate groups' from the Southern Poverty Law Center and shot someone before being wrestled to the ground... he was what? Nothing to worry about?

Was he bullshitting then or is he bullshitting now?

Neither. Like Obama & Hillary on the subject of same-sex marriage... he 'evolved' on the issue ;)

Or are the very concepts of logic and consistency rigged?

Ask that once we have a final answer as to why 'dissent is patriotic' 2001-2008, racist from 2009-11/8/16, then back to patriotic come 11/9/16?

Comment Bot vs. bot (Score 2) 62

Since the bulk of the Comcast reps on the other end of the line are doing little more than entering the customer's comments and choosing from a list of pre-made responses, this truly is a bot vs. bot conversation. I've designed and built call centers for companies like American Express. The humans in the call centers are glorified text-to-speech engines with almost no knowledge or expertise on what they're discussing. They follow scripts and don't know how to deviate very far from their loops.

The administration sold it on lies and misinformation, and a lot of people bought it.

Speaking as someone who was not only alive at the time but actively serving in the military at the time, you seem to forget Saddam himself was being conned by his own scientists who feared for their lives if they reported failure. Furthermore, the CIA believed they had WMD's, and the head of the CIA advised the Bush administration that WMD's were present.

So here you are, the President, sitting in the Oval Office. You've got a murderous thug of a dictator, someone who has shown no compunction about using WMD's against his own people when it suits him. His own services report having WMD's. Your own intelligence services confidently say he has WMD's. What do you do? Ignore all that?

Put this way, if you go to three different doctors and they all diagnose you with cancer, are you gonna say "nah, I feel fine, these guys don't know what they're talking about"? Or are you going to get treatment for cancer as if you actually HAVE cancer? And if afterwards when the chemo has made you sick as hell and all your hair falls out you discover you didn't really have cancer, are you going to blame yourself for making the decision to get treatment? Or are you going to blame those that wrongly advised you?

Based on your above comments, you'd have to blame yourself and hold those who wrongly diagnosed you as completely innocent. Not that that makes any fucking sense, but that's what you're doing.
