  1. Those on the right claim we would never have to be worried about being out-gunned by the military because the military would side with the people. Well Trump thinks differently...... "You know, the left plays a tougher game, it's very funny. I actually think that the people on the right are tougher, but they don't play it tougher. OK?" Trump said in an interview published last week in Breitbart News. "I can tell you I have the support of the police, the support of the military, the support of the Bikers for Trump -- I have the tough people, but they don't play it tough -- until they go to a certain point, and then it would be very bad, very bad." The US is far closer to an authoritarian state from the right than the left. Would the military defend the constitution over an idiot like Trump? Well given 40% of Republicans think he should have the power to ban the press, I doubt they would. https://www-m.cnn.com/2019/03/18/politics/steve-king-facebook-meme-states-fight/index.html?r=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.cnn.com%2F
  2. Interesting article on the roles social networks play in driving people towards extremism and increasing polarization. https://www.cnn.com/2019/03/17/tech/youtube-facebook-twitter-radicalization-new-zealand/index.html
  3. Just curious when @BSUTOP25 is going to call out the authoritarian Right given 40% of Republicans feel Herr Cheeto should have the authority to close news outlets? https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2018/08/07/trump-should-able-close-news-outlets-republicans-say-poll/925536002/
  4. Do you ever give people a chance or do you just permanently write them off? Come on. She didn’t double down on that point but she did press her case against AIPAC. Something you agree with!
  5. Come-on Joe. People use the dollar sign all the time to adjust cuss words. You asked and he answered. Perhaps we all need to take the high road. If you are going to accuse someone on this board directly of being an anti-Semite don’t you think you ought to give them a the benefit of the doubt. I know you are better than that. Way too much direct, bull-shit on this board.
  6. Nah. Why make her a martyr for the right? Keep her on and let her keep saying stupid things. One of the few positive things Trump has done is allowed this shit to be openly said. Better to keep stupidity and racism in the light.
  7. Sadly I’m not sure it’s burying the hatchet as much as not believing God gave you the right to take someone else’s home.
  8. Isn’t your statement making the author’s point? You made a statement of fact but it hasn’t been proven in court yet.
  9. Yes. I wonder if some of them might put Israel over the US. Not because their Jews but because their zealot ideology.
  10. Ethiopia Air has a very good safety record. The problem appears in the autopilot MCAS system which thinks the nose of the plane is at too high an angle and tries to force the plane down. Southwest has a lot of them and not sure I want to get on a Southwest flight.
  11. Yeah my mom was hired to help with drug addiction treatment. She came home appalled at how poorly the Palistinians were treated. And you’re correct other Arab states are no better. What pisses me off are right wing Christian Zealots who have no +++++ing clue. At this point the power is all in the hands of the Israeli’s and they treat the Palistinians like dirt.
  12. Yeah. Ask Joe how asymmetric the power equation is. The Palestinians have no options and the right wing Likud party will continue to steal land and restrict basic liberties as they see fit. The Palistinians don’t live much better than the blacks under apartied except in Israel’s case they have AIPAC.
  13. Not saying Palestinians have acted in good faith 80% of the time. But let’s be honest in terms of military might. Even when Palestinians launch rockets few cause damage. Between January 1 and November 6, 2017, Israeli security forces killed 62 Palestinians, including 14 children, and injured at least 3,494 Palestinians in the West Bank, Gaza and Israel, including protesters, suspected assailants or members of armed groups, and bystanders. Palestinians killed at least 15 Israelis during this same time, including 10 security officers, and injured 129 in conflict-related incidents in the West Bank and Israel. Israel has the power to stop this but they choose to steal Palistinian land and react with overwhelming force when Palestinians fight back. 80% is an guesstimate but it sure as hell isnt 50-50.
