Between Ol’ 45’s desire to use nukes, North Korea’s launching of missiles, and the rolling back of environmental regulations, we are basically one disaster away from living in a goddamned wasteland. So…yeah.

Well I mean yeah, if it were a democratic president right now, the GOP congresscritters would be pushing for high treason charges, which is one of the few capitol offenses. So no, it's not exaggerating in the slightest.

Meanwhile, with a republican in the white house, the same crooks ask irrelevant questions in an important deposition about the crime to try and distract from someone literally betraying the sovereignity of the United States to a foreign power for personal gain, or to impugn the character of the person who is testifying.

As far as I'm concerned, the entire party should be charged with conspiracy to commit treason for trying to obstruct the prosecution of these bad actors.

Lankford: "the American people need clarity and deserve an explanation for his immediate firing"
Burr: "I am troubled by the timing and reasoning"
Corker: this "will raise questions"
Cornyn: "Oh so NOW Democrats love Comey!!!!!!!!!"
Collins: lmao look at this
Graham: "Given the recent controversies surrounding the Director, I believe a fresh start will serve the FBI and the nation well."

Mr. StonezWb42fBPMM
Three separate Trump associates told the press last night that Trump did not leak any information to the Russians (and how dare they say he did).

Trump, on Twitter, this morning: “As President I wanted to share with Russia (at an openly scheduled W.H. meeting) which I have the absolute right to do, facts pertaining to terrorism and airline flight safety. Humanitarian reasons, plus I want Russia to greatly step up their fight against ISIS & terrorism."

Is there anyone at all within this administration who has not had their credibility destroyed by Ol’ 45?

Keep in mind, Pence was the chairman of the transition team. They knew he was under investigation (no fucking way Pence didn't know, but I assume they'll go with the "he was misled" defense again) and Obama warned 45 not to hire him, and he made Flynn the NSA anyway. Sally Yates warned that Flynn was compromised and he fired HER. And he asked Comey to lay off Flynn. (Also, was originally considering him for VP; remember that?)

Seriously what is even going on there.

And Trump has begun his first international trip as president, which will presumably go about as well for him as the other hundred-plus days of his presidency.

This happened AFTER people were taxed for a federal corporate insurance scam, which didnt deliver the meds.

If money was taken from people, and no one saw a health benefit, then wheres the fucking money?

Why arent you blaming the unaffordable act?

Youre blaming ordinary folk living hand to mouth because of obama.... yeah real rational.

By the way california will have to increase taxes 3-4 times, from 140 billion to over 400 billion, to keep the an abortion like unaffordable care act which doesnt even deliver insulin to people who need it.

It sure as fuck wasn't covering the guy who died from lack of insulin, which is who we're talking about.

>20 million
So you've managed to fuck over 330 million people, including people who need meds or provide charity to people who do.... in order to give CORPORATIONS tax money so they can cover 20 million people who might not even need coverage.

But hey, put your wallet where your mouth is, move to California and enjoy 22% state taxes (on top of 34% federal) if they're dumb enough to want the unaffordable care act in that one state. You'd be handing almost half your paycheck in for something that isn't even decent coverage for 5% of the population.

I bet you don't have the balls though. Bet you stay in a red state where people know how the economy works.

>so they can cover 20 million people who might not even need coverage.
I'm using "cover" loosely here since the unaffordable care act doesn't cover emergency services, surgery or hospital stays, outpatient care, rehab, anything relating to pregnancy, pediatrics, mental health services, laboratory services, or PRESCRIPTION DRUGS LIKE INSULIN.

At this point you may be asking yourself "well what the fuck DOES it cover?".

Well the insurance corporations pocket a few trillion dollars, print a little sticker with the words <<<You're Insured!>>> on it to 20 million people, which Obama then waves in the faces of people like >414954 as proof that he did something during his 8 years instead of just wasting everyones time REMEMBRRR MUH LEGASEEEEEEEE!

So in short: the unaffordable care act covers Obamas ass.

Well, the Trump Supporters basically seem to be going with the talking points you said, but the RNC seems slightly more troubled (not enough to do anything, obviously), saying things like "Trump was new to the job and didn't know what he was doing" and just silently ignoring the fact that Comey testified under oath multiple times that Trump is a liar who can't be trusted.

Incidentally, Trump's lawyers came out and called Comey a liar because of that. But if he was lying, they should be pushing for perjury charges.

And SCOTUS will also look at the “I won’t bake a wedding cake for a gay couple” bakery case that every other court beneath it has ruled in favor of the gay couple. (The teal-dear version: Baker was asked to make a wedding cake for a gay couple, baker said no, the state said “that violates our non-discrimination law”, baker said “nuh-uh”, every appeals court said “yeah-huh”, baker kept appealing to SCOTUS, SCOTUS finally said “let’s get this shit over with” likely thanks to Gorsuch’s presence.)

Congress can regulate interstate commerce, its hard to tell if a brick and mortar bakery in one state applies as interstate commerce. I mean they might buy flour from out of state, but does that apply? If it was a corporate owned chain of bakeries it might be more clear.

Lower courts dont matter or care, their purpose is to keep the retarded nuisance lawsuits out of the way so SCOTUS can deal with morally ambiguous cases.

The token lesbians and Lady Lich are solid pro-intervention for protected classes.
Breyer is in play because hes a fucking idiot who doesnt understand any topic.
Kennedy is in play because hes pro LGBT but anti intervention (boy scout case).
Thomas, Gorsuch and Alito are solid anti intervention and anti special interest.
Roberts is closeted but he's anti gay marriage, which a lot of gays are because they hate marriage.

If nothing changes the bakery decision has a 60-66% chance of being uphheld. If vampire lady or kennedy is replaced by prez, its not even going to be a fight, itll be overturned for sure.

If someone threatened to cut off Obama's finger unless he publicly said something demeaning about the appearance of a specific person, I think he would be physically incapable of doing it. Same thing with Bill, W and pretty much any president in the modern era.

The global economy is thrown into shambles, and the US economy exponentially moreso. Red states lose the funding provided by blue states and now have to negotiate separate trade agreements with each, despite having very little in the way of exports to offer, and eventually begin suffering from massive resource shortages. Blue states continue to suffer problems because the issues that divide the country aren't based on state vs. state but urban vs. rural, so even the blue states have a huge problem with trump supporters.

A few states manage to thrive--probably California and New York, though it's likely that New York will suffer its own civil war and New York City will become its own unincorporated City State, which will constantly be at war with the rest of New York, which craves NYC's resources and culture.

Global warming continues to get worse because the red states, free of federal law, begin deregulating industry. Every state on the Mississippi river, regardless of its political orientation, is hit with pestilence, famine, and dwindling populations as upstate States allow industry to dump whatever they want into their waterways and the rest of the states suffer. The states affected by this go to war with the states that deregulate, and since they likely have stronger economies and better governmental systems to keep a regulated military in effect, likely win and either force concessions or conquer.

Eventually the US is all united under a single empire made up of the strongest and most willing to cooperate of the remnant states, which again will most likely be California and New York City, given the resources and population available to both and their willingness to set up governments that can actually get shit done.

From there, to see what happens next, check your history books under "Roman Empire."

There's a reason the Left is on the rise but liberals are as derided as ever. And it's because liberals are jokes, like libertarians and the green party. Only difference is that liberals get just enough votes to control the debate formats and prevent any leftist parties from actually challenging the right.

When millions of people die because the conservatives pass a "healthcare" bill that is designed to kill off the poor and enrich the already rich, that's fucking class warfare, and saying you won't engage in it with them doesn't mean you're not culpable for the evil you allow them to do. In fact your willingness to treat them like rational adults at all validates their tactics and their methods as though the things they say are positions that can be held by members of society without losing their right to be treated like sane people by the rest of us.

Your attitude normalizes rightwing extremism by coddling them for the sake of your own ego. It's not about cowardice at all--it's about how you're actively helping the Alt Right win legitimacy.

But I will not provoke said Neo-Nazi into violence just so I can have an excuse to punch them in the face, nor will I punch them in the face unprovoked just because they are a Neo-Nazi.

Because socialism worked out real well in Venezuela, right? Because that's definitely not going to turn out like every other Marxist experiment that's been performed. That's surely not going to lead to mass starvation and tyranny when you centralize power. I'm sure the governing body you elect (and I'm giving you a lot of credence when I say you'd actually do this democratically) wouldn't abuse the power you give them. No sir, the people you put into control won't become corrupt or killed by someone who wants to wield that power.

>415339
It's really sad that I would side with Stone on anything, but if anyone here is a pussy, it's you and people like you. At least with Stone, he's somewhat willing to engage in debate about his politics--you are too cowardly to participate in discourse because you are either completely inept and don't know jack shit, or you know that if your policies and ideas were put to the test, you would be ripped to shreds. You've victimized yourself to the point where you believe that the principles of logic and reason are solely the tools of your "oppressors." Again, I really don't like Stone, but at least he's not such gutless moron to delude himself into believing that violence and destruction are the only reasonable solutions to whatever problems he sees.

I'm sure you're just going to use this to try to prove your point further, though. God forbid someone with differing politics find even one thing agreeable in another--that proves they're guilty by association.

So you can't give an example? Doing a real good job of dodging the argument.

Anyway, as far as examples of capitalism working out, I'd say much of the western world. I'm sure you're going to jump on this by pointing out how capitalism is not a utopian system that has brought prosperity to the world, but that's never been my point. I'll reiterate: capitalism is not perfect. It has flaws, and is susceptible to cronyism like any other society. Here's the second part of my point: socialism is not the answer. Socialism is even more susceptible to cronyism than capitalism is, and is more destructive.

None of you have yet to prove why socialism is somehow better than capitalism. The only thing you've done is wish violence upon me (and what a fucking shocker that is), and say that capitalism is not perfect.

Except that conveniently ignores the existence of all social organisms which survive almost entirely through cooperative efforts and communal resource gathering / ownership, some to such a high degree that individuals don't even have the ability to fulfill basic biological functions, such as reproduction, because they depend on other members of the community to fulfill those roles. Humans, like ants or bees, are social organisms--not eusocial, to be sure, but our entire ability to thrive as a species has been dependent from the very beginning on our evolution into social beings. It's the reason we have managed to thrive despite other organisms that exist in the same niche as we do being better than us in pretty much every single other rubric--mental or physical--other than endurance and/or patience.

Much like every time right wingers and capitalists bring up "biology" to justify their tunnel vision, the "science" you cite is not the kind that's actually based on empirical evidence or studies.

Didn't you just elect a candidate who ran on the premise that America, perhaps the posterchild of the "Western World" was not great, and wouldn't be until he came in to fix it? Isn't capitalism the actual reason most of the people who lost their jobs (i.e. people working in jobs like mining and manufacturing that have automated to such a degree that one person can do the work of hundreds) lost those jobs and were in such dire straights in the first place?

It's not just that Capitalism isn't utopian, it's that it's flat out dystopian and nightmarish and the only people who don't realize that are the people who won the capitalism lottery and got to be on the winning side of the "Fuck the majority of the citizens of this country" game. You are only able to believe that capitalism "works" because you were lucky enough to be born into circumstances that make it tolerable--and even then, even you admit that "there are problems." And I'll bet your idea of "problems" are more like "my taxes are too high" than "I can't eat even though there's more than enough food here to feed me because someone decided that they would rather I die of starvation than that anyone be allowed to eat for free."

And let's be honest about the real reason you support staying with this system, while we're at it: it's not because you think communism won't work. It's because you're afraid that you might not be deemed better than the majority of human beings by your society once it's done changing.

Actually, one of the problems I think capitalism has is what you said in your first paragraph. It's a problem that's only going to get worse, too; the lower end of white-collar working class people are up next. It's something that really needs to be addressed. You're under this impression that I think capitalism is THE answer to societies problems, when really I just believe it's the best system we have right now. Hopefully we can fix these issues in time, and if that means we move on to a different system that is genuinely better (i.e. not fucking socialism), then that's what should happen.

Marxism isn't the answer to these problems. It's not going to fix anything, in fact it'll only make things worse.

>And let's be honest about the real reason you support staying with this system, while we're at it: it's not because you think communism won't work. It's because you're afraid that you might not be deemed better than the majority of human beings by your society once it's done changing.
I don't think communism (and I'm glad your calling it what it really is now) won't work, I know for a fact it won't work. It hasn't ever worked when it's been tried, and every time it's led to the deaths of millions, poverty, starvation, etc.

It's been tried. It doesn't work. How many more bodies do you need to understand that?

Point taken, but I still believe that without brainwashing/disabling/killing all the power-hungry members of society, someone will always gain and use their power to exploit those below them for personal gain. I believe it's an inherent personality trait in certain people. Similarly, there will always be people who are able to be exploited.

Note: by fortunate, I didn't just mean people birthed into bad circumstance or victims of random events. People get scammed, people make bad investments. 100% success rate seems impossible to me simply because of selfish people being able to be selfish.

It's really sad that all that shit goes down with the Minneapolis police so they stupidly think the answer is to hire more diverse police.

Why? Why are our reaction so binary, so two dimensional? America investigates for years and also seems to come to the wrong conclusion.

You don't need more black officers (especially self-hating ones who don't like kids or women) or officers of any race, you need officers who are taught to acknowledge any bias they might have and work to correct it.

You need the steadiest people you can find, if you can describe an officer as "jumpy" or "twitchy" he really shouldn't be an officer, regardless of race.

I think America's race problem is how MUCH it worries about race, on both sides. The frustrating thing is listening to the protesters, because they get it, they are so tired of this bullshit.

I disagree. Diversity hires are important because non-whites suffer economic hardship from the normalization of whiteness. When people think of "leaders" and "successful businessmen" and things of that nature, they think of white people. White people have less to prove to potential employers because they automatically look like the kinds of people who have held these positions in the past, assuming they haven't made special effort to look unusual. This creates a bias which affects other races negatively from an economic standpoint.

Diversity hires are certainly not an ideal solution, but they're definitely the most realistic way of addressing the problem.

Disarming the police when guns are so prevalent amongst the population, both law-abiding and criminal, seems like a poor move.

In the UK guns are less common and the territory is smaller so not every officer needs to be equipped to fight against gun-wielding assailants compared to the armed response unit, though there is a shortage of officers for the nation that is something of a problem.

This would be funny if it were possible that “ignorance of the plight of Middle America” was the only conceivable reason for Trump’s victory. But between Democrats fucking up on messaging, Republican gerrymandering, potential Russian interference, and the entirety of the Trump campaign (specifically his own rhetoric and behavior), saying “we should care more about poor whites in Iowa” does not actually solve the issues of Republicans attacking voting rights (amongst other things), Democrats fucking up on messaging, corporate money influencing political campaigns (and beyond), the possibility for more dark money to enter politics by way of non-enforcement of the Johnson Amendment in re: houses of worship (which is actually a tacit state endorsement of religion thanks to the Trump regime only applying the non-enforcement to churches instead of all non-profit organizations), and the Ol’ 45 regime trying to dismantle the federal government and set up his Mafia-style family business bullshit.

Yes, the whole “we need to pay attention to the actual working-class people again” argument has merit. Yes, we need a government that will give those people a break rather than turn a deaf ear to them while listening to (and taking money from) billionaires. But that is not the only reason Trump won, and anyone who believes otherwise is a damned fool.

Something liberals were warned about when they kept demeaning and marginalizing leftists after Bernie's concession. They made their own bed there by expecting leftists to fall in line no matter how the liberals treated them, despite the fact that leftists tend to be idealistic to the point of martyr complexes. PLUS, all that still just reinforces the point already being made here--liberals ignored the desire of the common people and especially those on the left to reduce the influence of crony capitalism on politics.

Yes, it was dumb for leftists to let Trump get into office because they were too apathetic to vote when the only other choice was a liberal, but it was also entirely predictable and could have been easily addressed by the liberals. They decided that it was not worth their time to court the leftist vote. The failure was their fault. They could have easily gotten leftists enthusiastic enough to vote for Clinton by being more inclusive of "Bernouts" and playing up their ideals. They decided instead to rest on their laurels and let the shittiness of the other candidate do their work for them.

There's no denying that leftists didn't show up for Clinton. And yes, to a certain extent, I hold those who refused to bother voting partially responsible for Trump's victory. But the vast majority of the blame goes to the liberal, establishment wing of the Democratic party who relied on corporatism, money in politics, and largely maintaining the status quo as enough to push them to victory.

Agreed, though there *are* actual movements being made toward moving away from First Past the Post. Most of the progress is being made in smaller jurisdictions, like in local or state elections rather than Presidential.

There's also an ongoing effort to move to national popular vote that is getting fairly close to succeeding--it doesn't require national legislation because it's a compact between States. Each state agrees to switch to granting all of their electoral votes to whoever wins the national popular vote once the others in the compact do, which takes effect once the sum of electoral votes amongst all states in the compact is 270 or more.

It doesn't require an act of Congress, since it's guaranteed in the constitution that each state can decide for itself how its electoral votes are distributed. Because of this, it's also possible that the same rule could be used to move toward an alternate system on a state-by-state basis. California, for example, could move to a Ranked Choice Voting system and award its electoral votes accordingly. It's not as good as changing things nationwide, but it's a start. And once it's successful in one jurisdiction, the chances of it moving to other jurisdictions increases.

There are a few other things we need to do that might be harder to accomplish, though. Like doubling our number of national legislators and using proportional representation rather than district-based, to eliminate gerrymandering and also make the senate more representative.

Its also worth noting that the two parties in the US aren't really "parties" as such, more like premade coalition governments. The implementation of this in practice has shifted somewhat, especially for the Republicans who tend to keep in line, but it's definitely still true for the Dems. Basically, both parties breakdown into multiple smaller political divisions, sort of like how Labour includes both Corbynistas and Blairites, so just because they share a banner doesn't mean they're agreeing on everything, or indeed ANYTHING. What this means for the 3rd parties is that in order to not be in one group or the other, you've probably gone so far off the reservation that most would consider you a lunatic.

The US military already employs several thousand transgender people. The costs of their medical care are negligible (at best) compared to both the overall amount of money spent on the military and, say, the costs of Ol’ 45 spending a weekend at Mar-a-Lago with the Secret Service and such in tow. And I have yet to hear of any study or report that shows how trans people serving openly has enough of a negative effect on “military readiness” that would justify a blanket ban on their service in any capacity.

In fairness, you didn’t really deserve a counterpoint because no, trans people are not some grave threat to “military readiness” or “unworthy” of putting their lives on the line in service of their country because they are trans, and anyone who says otherwise does not have “a fair point” because they are trying to justify anti-trans bigotry. They should be told to fuck off—especially if they lack any actual evidence or any sort of fact-based argument to back up such a “fair point”.

All my explanations are based of anecdotal evidence or limited personal observation, because as an egalitarian I have no absolutely interest in transexual people statistics, nor do I have any interest in gathering US military facts. So I will, as you suggested, fuck off from this conversation from this comment forth. Nevertheless, I still appreciate that you actually gave an argument as opposed to a dismissive death threat.

(I understand that you may be shocked to see me describe myself as egalitarian, but I will restate that I don't agree with the ban (I'm personally appalled). On the other hand, I acknowledge that trans people do cost more for the military to handle, and the US already spends way too much on defense. It's not, in my opinion, a cost worth cutting, but that doesn't make the cost not exist.)

MOST likely permanently actually. They've blown the reconciliation, and they're not going to use it next year with an election threatening them.

Trump can still defund ocare (if he understood how that worked) but Tcare should be effectively dead.

That depends on whether the GOP can retain control of Congress through the midterms. Given how hard they will likely be fighting to do that—i.e., how hard they will be fighting any attempts to de-gerrymander Congressional districts and protect voting rights—I would not consider the Trumpcare issue “closed” for good. The GOP waited seven years to try this shit; they can wait two more if it means growing the Congressional majority they need to pass the bill.

Correction:

They SAID they waited for it. At MINIMUM half just thought it was bluster and they'd never be able to do it. They just lost the game of chicken and now we're threatened by it.


Yes, it hinges on the midterms of course, but having these idiots' signatures on a nationally famous bill with sub-20% approval is USEFUL in this regard, nevermind the constant idiocy out of the WH forcing the country out of apathy.

Since citizens have been bothered enough to make things very difficult on those who decided to tow the party line instead of representing their constituents. People have been barraging them non-stop about healthcare, the approval is in the toilets, and serious money has been donated to groups and politicians running to unseat the people who supported this nonsense. It was enough to make the representatives fight about how to implement it (in the first round that was run aground by the "Freedom Caucus" who decided the noise was because the replacement wasn't conservative ENOUGH) and to tell the three Republicans who didn't support the skinny repeal that they would be supported for their decision to fight it.

The smartest among the Republicans understand that while they have stacked the odds in their favor via a lot of dishonest workarounds to subvert democracy, these same cheats also make their position precarious--for example, gerrymandering makes "safe" districts less safe by moving more democrats into republican districts to try to make their votes not count, so a sufficiently strong democratic wave or a strong enough left turn amongst swing voters would turn all their redistricting into a liability that creates far more democratic seats than the democrats should actually have. Their position not only isn't safe, it's dangerous.

And they really don't want a democratic majority right now. A democratic majority in both houses right now would be very bad for not only Trump's presidency, but as more and more Republicans are looking complicit based on the increasingly criminal-looking revelations leaking from the most incompetent administration in American history, for the majority of the leadership Republican party.

When Trump goes down, there is a very high chance he takes the Republican party as we know it down with him. Cutting the head from the beast won't kill it, but it'll make it have to spend a lot of time and energy growing a new head.

And he also called New Hampshire—a state he claimed to have won in the election, but actually lost—“a drug-infested den” in that same phone call.

I really have to wonder how long it will be before Congress ignores him and listens to General (President?) Kelly.

>Within one month of issuing body cameras to a third of the Baltimore police department two officers suspended without pay and four others on leave pending investigation with all pending investigations by the officers dropped and all cases they were involved in immediately entering review, in all hundreds of cases dropped.

>City actually taking a blow because of how much it relied on money generated by fraudulent fines and arrests.

>No one told them it takes 30 seconds after you hit the off button for the camera to actually turn off.

>Cops such major scum bags they could literally not go thirty seconds without committing a crime if believing they aren't being recorded.

Clearly we need to set randomizing times between when an officer hits off and the camera actually goes off.

Why even let them choose when turns on and off? Sure, it requires more data storage, but it's just another distraction and it allows selection of what evidence is collected.

To all non-American anons here: What are police like in your country? Is the state of the American police force typical?

No, American police are very much their own thing, in Canada we struggle with it more, especially in the wake of Bourque.

But we still never really go to guns, this fucker killed three officers and crippled 2 others for life: they still didn't shoot him but they sure as hell curb stomped him up and down the street to the applause and cheers of the people. He cried because he told officers that "he was supposed to be the hero" because they "were coming to take his guns away."

Should have taken them sooner, anyway it super cemented in the Canadian consciousness that guns are for cowards to wreak mayhem and that no one needs handguns besides police and security.

Oh geez, Trump is helping MS-13, his tough talking is making EVERYONE far more afraid to call the police which means they can kill with impunity and force unprecedented numbers into the gang, they even promise with loyalty that they will keep ICE off your family. This is really bad.
