    You’re a very bad person because you lie even more than Trump. Yeah, the public is burnt on it. The big woke component of the Dem Party and inflation is what has given Trump the life he has. It’s idiots like you that are effectively bringing back Trump. 

    Why do you think Hispanics are so strong for Trump now? 2 reasons. One is small business support, but the other is they’re Catholic and tired of the 24/7 woke insanity with trans and LGBTQ. Even a lot of gays are pissed at LGBTQ for going so extreme and heavy handed because they see it as eroding so many of the gains that have been made over the decades. You are on board with that and a part of the problem.

  2. Pope is going to do great things at UK. 

    The only guys I was interested in were Oats, Tom in Tucson, and Chris Beard, but none of them were going to be realistic candidates. Hurley was never coming, and Drew has the personality of a sweaty gym sock. Expecting a top dude to show up and replicate part successes from other places is short-sighted and stupid, anyway. 

    Watched a few BYU games and always came away impressed with their offense, especially compared to Cal’s post-Covid Caveman offense he’d been running. Always thought Pope was a realistic replacement from conversations I’d heard prior to Cal becoming Los Pollos Hermanos. 

    Excited to see what he does. I’m a big fan of the hire.

    If SAMO was Joe from Wyo's sock, props to Joe for pulling the wool over the eyes of so many of us for so long. SAMO clearly was not Stocker or whatever the BYU kid mainly called himself.

    Naw, they’re not the same person. I’ve met both on separate occasions.

    It’s easy for them to spout off their activism nonsense. They’re cozy, warm, and safe here in America. American Jews don’t have to put up with constant rocket attacks into Israel and latest attack by Hamas. Move them to Israel and watch their attitudes change. 

    Who are you to speak for the Jewish people? You’re not even a member of the tribe ffs.

    It's funny, a big portion of the most pro-Israel people in this country are usually anti-Semites themselves 

    You have Jewish Space Lasers lady screaming at pro-Palestinian people for being anti-Semitic lol

    They’re like the David Duke crowd as far as it goes. They loathe Jews, but prefer to see them over there because it ushers in some disjointed prophecy. Theyre much more in line with the totalitarians that persecuted my people for centuries than they’d like to admit.

    Yeah not really a surprise you are right there with him.  Could have predicted Idaho white trash would quickly line up.  

    Apparently if you’re not a right wing waterhead, you’re an anti semite…lol(rip samo). I mean sure, I had family killed in the Holocaust, and have family in Israel, but apparently I must be self-hating…lol (rip samo)

    You appear to validate Hamas role in all of this like theyre the innocent victim. Their stated goal is to destroy Israel. Maybe the Palestinians need more moderate leaders.

    We should be so lucky to having Mexico lob rockets into San Diego every few years. What do you think our reaction would be if the cartels came across our border and murdered 1,000 of our residents In the same manner. We’d be all over their asses and anyone else that got in the way. 

    Hell the cartels don’t even need to do they they’re killing tens of 1,000’s with fentanyl and other drugs.

    I’ll bet you were one of those folks during the 2003 Iraq invasion that had a magnet yellow ribbon collection, constantly yapping that if you were against the war, you hated the troops…that level of cognitive dissonance here…lol(rip samo)

    None of the possible outcomes on this are good. Behind one door is a tiger, behind the other is a lion.

    - Trump is removed from the ballots and can’t run

    - Trump is convicted of a felony and ???

    - SCOTUS nullifies the 14th Amendment

    - Trump loses but says the election was a fraud again

    - Trump wins

    SCOTUS can’t nullify the 14th, nor would they.

    I think you're not seeing the same war footage I am seeing. I think Israel has people in positions of authority who see Palestinians as vermin. I think war crimes are in fact being committed in Gaza.

    I ask that you reconsider your stance on the IDF reaction to the Hamas attack.

    You should know by now how any "War on Terror" will end.

    Every one of these things creates blowback. 

    USSR v Mujahadeen gave us Al Qaeda

    Israel v PLO at the Lebanon Neutral Site and it’s occupation of South Lebanon spawned Hezbollah

    US v Saddam 2.0 and our support for Jihadis v Secular Dictators created ISIS outposts across the region

    etc etc

    The right wing extremists that control Israel are a major part to blame in all of this too, they’ve built up a lot of oppression, and have more or less kept Hamas in power the same way our sanctions kept the Castros around. Bibi is a deplorable human being, who quite frankly, is unfit for office. Sending a bunch of young kids into an urban meatgrinder of a mess largely of his (and his allies’) own making is terrible. 

    Status quo only festers a wound, bombing to smithereens only rips it open more. I’d love to see a more moderate bunch take the reins in Israel, but it seems like rage is the cat’s meow these days.

  11. Give the people what they want. If they want to vote for Orange Julius Caesar, they should be able to. It’s pure lunacy because he’s never been convicted of anything, that’s the asinine part. 

    Major Ass Guzzlers Anonymous, obnoxious as they are, should be able to speak through the ballot box.

    Again you prove you have the intellect of a dirty mop. Educate yourself on the 2000 Camp David meetings with Barak and Arafat. The political mood in Israel had turned pro peace by 2000 and it was reflected in electing a pro peace prime minister. Clinton tried to take advantage of this and wanted to leave the office with a shiny new peace deal. Israel offered numerous concessions including Palestinian sovereignty. See the previous link where I had to educate your ignorant ass on the topic. 
     

    Why the jealousy disguised as hostility toward my career choice. Did an accountant tell you that you didn’t make enough money to be worth his time? Well if you take your w2 from Popeyes chicken for $22,000 in a couple months and take a picture of it and upload it to turbo tax ,  it will do your taxes for you. For a guy like you with real simple finances it should be a breeze, but you might be too dumb to figure it out. 

    Barak, much like Rabin several years before, didn’t have popular support at home, and only tried to set these up in an attempt to hastily save face after his previous negotiations with old man Assad in Syria failed. Desperate, he wanted to use the last few months of Bill’s presidency to try something for any sort of a W. In all reality, the summit should probably never have taken place. 

    The summit itself was ill-conceived and ill-advised at the time. Barak and Arafat were both held hostage to the politics in their respective jurisdictions at the time; Barak’s gov’t literally came unraveled at that summit ffs. The Israelis weren’t willing to play ball on Jerusalem and didn’t consider the right of return, plus gave a really shitty attempt at a land grant…have you ever seen the map? Probably not.  

    The sauce here, too, that you’re clinging to like Charlton Heston is a generalized opinion piece masquerading as news on the ADL… that’s like getting an unbiased account on Jan. 6th from the Hannity show lol.

    I’ve been to Israel countless times and still have family there, please spare me the faux intellectual superiority you’re trying to broadcast because you read a slanted opinion article on the Internet is. Congrats, you’re as shitty at paraphrasing as you are at life lulz.

    Dude, you don’t know what you’re talking about. The P’s have NEVER been in favor of a two state solution from the very beginning. They have pretended to and then backed out with ridiculous excuses when presented with it going back to the 1940’s. The clear majority of Palestinians will not be satisfied until all the Jews are relocated far away or killed. That is a fact. 

    Sure Israel has made big mistakes and certainly aren’t blameless. But Israeli culture has been created by its extraordinarily difficult environment, past and attempt to survive. It’s laughable the way some people frame Israel as the powerful arrogant cruel occupiers that are a threat to the Muslim Middle East. There are 15 Muslim state countries in the world, and only 1 Jewish. And it’s tiny. And a majority of the Muslims in these countries would like to see Israel wiped clean. Does Israel want the same for them? Of course not. They just want to be left alone. 

    So the context of Israel’s difficult environment and survivalist mentality makes some of their mistakes understandable. Israel certainly could understand the P plight of having nowhere to go and no other countries that want them. But the P’s have royally fvcked that up using violent Islamic extremism. How do you think the civil rights movement would’ve gone in the 1960’s if the blacks in this country were largely Muslim and decided to use suicide bombers to get their civil rights? Not only would it not have made any progress, it would’ve gone massively backwards and this would be a very different country right now, and not nearly as great. 

    They’ve been in favor of one since 1988. Or is the UN not a reputable source, Mr. Birch? 

    https://www.un.org/unispal/document/auto-insert-178680/

    Your analysis is garbage and terribly misinformed lol. The Palestinians aren’t a monolithic Muslim bloc, nor is the greater Middle East. There are a number of Christians throughout the region. 

    Also, let’s not forget that Israel and Lebanon nearly had a peace deal in the 1980s when the Phalangists controlled Beirut’s government. Let’s also not forget that Israel and Iran were once great allies before the rise of Khomeini. Additionally, the Saudis and Israelis have long cooperated (as have a number of Gulf nations) on a number of issues, albeit not in an official capacity, and there was nearly a deal between the Assad government in Syria and Israel prior to the war breaking out in that country in 2011.

    Are there hostile parties? Yes. That can’t be disputed. There are bankrolling individuals in the Persian Gulf that fund the atrocities like 10/7. But there are individuals within Israel such as Bibi and Ariel Sharon who have moved the needle of death other directions too. 

    Bottom line is, we’ve reached a point where the hardline extremists have control of their respective parties, and this is the fallout. I have relatives in Israel and am close with many Palestinians. Please spare me the “yOu DoNt KnOw ShIt FrOm ShInoLa!!!1!!” rhetoric, Dog Man, and go back to slinging stories about the time you and your hairless cats washed Eddie Vedder’s rhinestone thong in your little grass shack in Kealakekua, Hawaii. You’re better at that.

    You stupid bastard. The 2000 agreement at camp David had , many, many concessions offered by Israel including a separate state. You are the one who needs to educated about this son. 
     

    https://www.adl.org/resources/backgrounder/camp-david-summit-2000

    No it didn’t. Both parties threw up a one-time Hail Mary that was a flawed approach. There was never movement on a right of return, there was never movement on Jerusalem. It was never a serious attempt at negotiation by either side. 

    The only way you’d ever see any serious movement is the pre-1967 borders, which Israel isn’t willing to entertain at this point. The Palestinians have accepted the reality of a two-state solution through their Declaration of Independence in 1988, but you can’t offer a square mile in Hell’s Half Acre and say you seriously are negotiating. Israel already comprises almost 80% of the former Palestine, how much more is enough? 

    Again, I’m in favor of a one-state solution, it would benefit everyone as a whole. It’ll never happen, but it should. Both peoples have competing claims to the land, and really have coexisted rather peacefully for eons before 1948. There’s two sets of polarized extremists running each actor currently, leading to the blood-filled mess we’re in. 

    Also, brush up on your insult game a bit there, too. I know it must be hard molesting collies as a cuckolded Wal Mart tax preparer who lives in his in-laws’ basement broom closet with the wit of the autistic, but still, maybe try harder?

    What does color have to do with being a Cubs fan?

     

    We can just ask them outright:  Do you want Jews gone, or Israel gone.  Saying it is one and the same is inaccurate.  And go the other way, ask them if they want Muslims gone, or Palestine gone.  We have heard discussions of both being wiped out.  Which is why I have been a little bewildered at support for either being such a thing as an outsider.  If they want to eradicate Jews, or eradicate Palestinians, I am not for it.  If they want to F up Hamas for what they did to innocent people, I am for it.  But if Israel does something, and they have before, and they are now, am I supposed to act like any reaction to that is a hate for the religious or ethnic Jew?  No, I just don't like Israeli gov't doing something that we get pissed at Hamas about.  Which is why I don't support either political entity, but will support innocent people of either side, and right now am definitely more pissed at Hamas for their actions that have created this situation.

     

    But, I guess I am antisemitic.  Gotta go yell at my Jewish lady, I suppose.  

    Weren’t Cub fans all colored green (with envy) until 2016? lol

    You’re putting in strong work on this thread, I’ve enjoyed reading your thoughts.

    They already tried that many times, and even offered Palestine their own sovereignty. Palestine instead decided to elect terrorists. Choices>>>Consequences. 
    Maybe this time they will learn , but I doubt it. 

    Lulz. You’re not talking about the peace “deals” in the 90s right? Those were flawed from the start for a number of reasons, many that could individually fill their own books. 

    They’ve never (to my knowledge) offered Palestine any sovereignty. The original deal that Bill brokered in the 90s had about the closest thing you could get to it, but it still didn’t cross the proverbial goal line. 

    Read some stuff before you shut dumbassery from the digital rooftops.
