Comment Re:President Pussy-Grabber (Score 1) 1285

South Park did an episode about this when Tiger Woods was caught banging whores, and all the ugly women and fags just for the life of them couldn't figure out why rich and powerful men were banging hot young women. Eventually Obama had to make up a story that it was aliens making them do it or something. You can't figure out the whole "women want to fuck rich guys" thing, so which are you, a faggot or a fat woman?

And from what I've heard Bill told them they were fucking up, and she needed to go to Michigan and Wisconsin and talk to workers and unions and they laughed at him.

Trump followed Bill's same plan from '92: It's the Economy, Stupid. So all Trump talked about was jobs, jobs, jobs (and some terror). But all Hillary talked about was Trump and minority pandering.

By providing an example of "acceptable" behavior via his constant personal attacks on people, I think he's going to signal to everyone that they no longer need to be civil to one another.

The left hasn't been civil...basically ever. If you have a difference of opinion you are shouted down as a racist, sexist, xenophobe, homophobe, transphobe, literally double mega Hitler. Trump is just the first person on the right who found a way to fight back in a long, long time.

I would love to have polite, civil discussions, but the left is going to need to stop shouting down, deplatforming, and physically attacking everyone who disagrees with them, and understand that it's possible to disagree with leftist politics without being a seething wraith of pure hatred wrapped in human skin. I don't see this happening any time soon though.

I've heard Trump praise many people. I'd bet real money he doesn't own a copy of Mein Kampf although I've know lots of people who have read it as it was in my High School's library. I doubt that Trump will be nearly as great as his followers thing or nearly as bad as his detractors think. Regardless we have 2 other branches of government to keep him from getting truly outrageous. Putin doesn't have the power to be a threat to the US. His country is already suffering under sanctions now.

I think it's the other way around. You started with the emotional reaction of hating Trump, and so you're looking for additional justification for hating him or delegitimizing him. Hence, you believe the completely known liars from the CIA who say bad things about him without presenting a shred of evidence.

Anyone looking at the situation with no emotional bias towards or against Trump would see the lack of evidence and the CIA's history as liars and manipulators and come to the conclusion the CIA was lying. It takes emotional prejudice, as you have, to believe known liars who provide you with no evidence.

You'll notice in polls the only people who believe the CIA are leftist/democrat partisans. Independents don't because they don't have the emotional prejudice against Trump necessary to throw reason out the window.

The CBS All Access show features the franchise's Enterprise, now known as the U.S.S. Discovery

How can you call yourself the "Hollywood reporter" and get something so trivial wrong?

Better check, the reportage itself might be accurate. I don't care enough to check, but it may well be that they are "breaking lore", so to speak, and making major storyline changes regarding early ST 'history' regarding early ST-universe starships bearing the "Enterprise" moniker. Because they can. And because they're great. Just ask them. Just look at the DC/Marvel franchise adherence to established lore and storylines, etc.

Or, equally as likely these days I suppose, is that both sides are wrong, none of it happened, and it was Russian hackers planting fake news. Because hackers! And Russia! Hacking! Russia! Fake news!

This is one of the Chairman Mao fan club from the Obama administration.

Pardon the fact that it's Glen Beck but he's just showing video of her speech. The part where she gushes over Chairman Mao and calls him one of her two favorite political philosophers starts about 25 seconds or so into the video. Mind you, I don't begrudge her the right to follow Chairman Mao's philosophy as she is after all a liberal democrat and that's pretty much the party line. In fact I found her honesty very refreshing. My problems with Mao aren't his socialism as much as his methods. There are a few other references attributed to other members of the Obama administration. Unlike Beck, (I find him funny when he's not being preachy) I don't really give a crap about the Chairman Mao praise. I understand she's not talking about rounding up members of the opposition and having them shot she just loves communist theory. The thing is that when Trump "praises" Putin by calling him a strong leader the DNC propaganda arm of NBC, CBS, ABC, MSNBC, CNN and The NYT all went ape shit. It's silly and stupid.

I think it was simply a case of picking your poison. I'm not sure what a Trump presidency will be like but I do have some hope for a few things. I knew for sure what a Hilliary presidency was going to look like and knew I wanted to avoid it at all costs. I took the Orange Pill.

Comment Re:Speculative Trading (Score 3, Interesting) 161

Stocks were intended to be shares in a company that provided dividends in return for investment. What they actually are is gambling. People trade based on what they think a share will do and not really whether the company will actually make money. Thus when he said they were overvalued anyway he is stating the truth based on what stocks were intended to be. I remember when I thought about investing 10 grand in Amazon back in the early days. I teetered on the edge for days but finally resisted. I just couldn't bring myself to buy into something that was little more than a script running on a server. At the time they had no warehouses and distribution centers. I'm still kicking myself.
