Comment Re:America hates Hillary Clinton (Score 1) 1069

You need to stop believing that right-wing description of liberals and try actually having a conversation with them.

More generally, it is a bad idea to gain an opinion of a group based largely upon the description provided by their opponents. (This is a fault that is not particular to any one viewpoint.)

I never understood that. Whatever else Donald Trump may be, he definitely is establishment.


It is certainly true that rural America has serious issues related to the dwindling manufacturing, centralization of agriculture, etc. At the same time, it boggles the mind that the solution is put in charge a millionaire who lives at the top of a tower on an island that is the biggest city in the U.S.

You can't make this shit up.

Comment Re:You're cute (Score 2) 555

I don't recall the Republicans calling half the nation "deplorable", or rioting when Obama was elected. Or rioting when [Bill] Clinton was elected.

What about when Romney insulted 47% of the US?

What about the protests and threats of lynching for Obama's election?

You must have a bad memory.

But please... hold your breath until you're blue in the face.

I'll see your non-sequitur and raise you standing on one leg until you fall over. You're so cute when you do that.

Comment Re:Democrats are the enemy (Score 5, Insightful) 555

To be more clear, I now consider Democrats to be the equivalent of the "other side" in a war - they will still oppose every and any thing your side does, they can lose a battle and still wage war, incessant and total non-compliance, they will fight to the last man, and any victory - even pyrrhic - is still a victory. Any means are justified in the pursuit of their ends.

So... in other words, the Democrats are now going to do what the Republicans have been doing for the past 8 years.

No idea what that was, but all I could think of is a glitch in the system.

That was ALL you could think of? Try:

  • Momentary change in wind. (like the clouds *were* moving, just in a direction aligned with your viewpoint)
  • Your imagination

I could probably come up with more if I tried, but I think these two require less of a mental leap than jumping to a glich in the simulation of the universe...

Comment Re:Stupid (Score 2) 1042

Yeah, except that I've actually seen UFO's about 30 to 50 feet above me that were totally silent, except for a deep vibration that occurred when directly over me, and military jets and a black helicopter slowly following them from about a mile behind. I don't have to have faith in something I haven't seen.

I'd be happy to believe you, if there was a shred of evidence provided. As is, this statement has as much weight as my claim of the invisible pink unicorn living in my garage.

Comment Re:So global warming started... TSARKON reports (Score 1) 709

And your point? CO2 was at 1950 ppm, and the temperature was only 3 deg Celsius hotter. Full stop. Period. That is a fact. Not a "factoid" ... a motherfucking fact.

So, from this one data point, we can fully conclude that having CO2 at 1950 ppm will *always* result in a planet that is 3C warmer than today? I think that the parent was making the point that a whole fuckton of variables have changed in and around the planet in the intervening 200 million years, so it is making an apples to oranges comparison.

Here, I'll give you an example of this reasoning. Last winter, while standing outside with my coat on, I was cold. Therefore, if I want to cool off on a hot summer day, I should go outside and put my coat on. After all, I had my coat on before and felt cold, which is a *fact*, a motherfucking fact.
