Oh I'm sorry honey! Did Zuckerberg kick you off of Facebook for your fake news stories? Surely you can find a bigger forum than this to trot them out.

The Donald needs a remedial Jr. High American History class, and a tutor to explain it to him. Cliff Notes for the Constitution might help, if they can deliver it in tweets.

Nah, too hopeful. He is never going to wrap his tiny brain around what his job is, nor read the Constitution, nevermind understand it past whatever bullet points he has invented for himself. Freedom of speech and the right to peacefully express yourself eludes him entirely when you aren't in lockstep agreement with his selfish and ignorant POV, or when you are a member of a club that didn't want him.

I admit I wasn't unhappy that Hillary lost, but Cheeto has turned out to be less than what I hoped for, a lot less. Having known his NY and NJ reputation, I should have known better.

While I'm on this, can someone explain to me how bragging about not being "politically correct" became cool? Near as I can tell, it's an excuse for being a racist, or a misogynist, or a homophobe, or just an asshole in general.

I have a cousin who brags about not being PC and her two years in the Air Force like that makes her something really special. I don't get it. Not being PC means you're ignorant and not interested in anyone else's situation. She claims to be one of those who thinks you shouldn't judge until you've walked in the other person's shoes, but then she spouts crap about those commie raping terrorist illegal immigrants who are stealing her taxpayer dollars, while she collects disability (her disability is a memory issue, she hasn't worked for years). No amount of showing her the numbers will sway her, she is firmly in the base and thinks everyone else is an idiot who just hates Trump and wants to take away her guns.

But what do I know. Consideration for others (including her, but she misses that every time) makes me a butt-fuck liberal who should just shut up. So much for the Constitution...again.

...Kushner reportedly uses his personal email as well as his official White House email to not only communicate with White House officials, but also to talk with outside advisers...


LOL, just thought I'd try it on for size...doesn't fit, I prefer not feeling like a complete moron.

47130. wabbit - 9/24/2017 11:39:28 PM

And just in case anyone thought I was done...

When did taking a knee become a statement against the flag, or the military, or the country??

Note to the shitheads who didn't get the memo - this is about obvious and pervasive POLICE discrimination, nothing whatsoever to do with the military. Jeez Louise, get a f'ing clue, huh?

Hurricane Maria shows Trump revels in conflict, chaos amid crisis

"Critics, such as liberal Sen. Bernie Sanders, view his behavior as "unspeakable," while Trump's supporters view it through their belief that the media is pursuing a vendetta against Trump, born of an elite disdain for his convention-busting style."

You know who else are convention-busters?

Murderers, rapists, child abusers, and criminals.

What has to happen before Republican Congresspeople will stand up to their POTUS? They have to decide to not run for re-election, like Bob Corker. The inevitable Twitter storm doesn't mean a thing to them then.

47133. Ms. No - 10/17/2017 4:58:52 PM

It's just all the lying that irritates my soul!

If you hate brown people, think women ought to shut up and put out (for you only in the privacy of your chosen location), gays, transexuals, and atheists should be stripped of their rights and perhaps their lives, and poor people should starve and die in the street, then just fucking say so.

Man up and say what you really mean rather than lying about how you have respect for women's rights or how your tax cuts will help the middle class or how you're about religious freedom.

If you're afraid to say so, it's because you know it's wrong, and you don't want people to know what a shitty person you are.

Only you're not fooling anybody -- except maybe yourself and people who feel exactly as you do. Everyone else already knows you're a shitty person.

Don't be a liar on top of it.

Here endeth the morning rant at non-specific assholes.

47134. arkymalarky - 10/17/2017 7:16:21 PM

I'm going to share that post with mose. You sound like she sounds about having broken off with a dear childhood friend. There comes a point in time you have to realize it's not about who you voted for it's about your attitude and the reasons you voted for that person. If you're going to be prejudiced and try to sugar coat it or specially offensive, roll it in your religion, then it's best not to waste any more time on you.

47135. Ms. No - 10/18/2017 3:14:21 AM

There comes a point in time you have to realize it's not about who you voted for it's about your attitude and the reasons you voted for that person. Yep.

If you voted for Trump you are a bad person. period. You're not a good person who is mistaken or misguided. You are a bad person. You had a choice and you made the wrong one. You knowingly chose a racist, misogynist, lying bully for your president. That makes you an asshole.

One of the many odd details of the recent Las Vegas massacre:

Security guard Jose "Larry" Angel Campos shares the same name as a teaching student in Mexico, Jose Angel Campos, who disappeared in Guerrero province (after a hotly contested election) presumably into a mass grave on orders of a local politician/gangster. The NYT has a photo of Campos' father putting up his son's picture on a wall.

Jose Angel Campos is a common name for Mexico -- yet the face in the photograph is also very similar. The extreme violence has some similarities also. The ages wouldn't match though some people say that this is common when people assume different identities after gang violence, they would change the age

Curious about where the hardline anti-Trumpers at the Mote draw lines on mass murder? (In a lot of countries, that's their idea of politics as usual)

You don't have to answer but it would be interesting to know where you fall on the spectrum. Several posters here have already confessed to extreme Trump Derangement Syndrome.

If Mose's childhood friend and supposed Trumpster were killed or seriously injured while attending a Trump event, would several Moties feel that she was good riddance because this person disagrees with your politics?

Serious question, because her friend may be asking herself that same question even if they are no longer in contact.

47138. Trillium - 10/20/2017 12:26:48 AM

On more conservative boards, the question comes up. How murderous are your ex-friends?

Kathy Gifford held up a fake decapitated head of Trump in May 2017.

In June 2017, Scalise was shot and very nearly killed, along with several other Republicans at a baseball field in Washington.

Then the recent Las Vegas massacre at a country music concert that included many off-duty police and presumed Trumpsters as fans.

Antifa has promised bloodshed on November 4th. Who knows if this will materialize or not; at least one gun shop owner attests to seeing Antifa-types coming in to purchase weapons.

These things generally don't play out well. The Spanish Civil War began with Communists lining up Royalist prisoners -- priests, soldiers, others who had opposed them in the Battle of Madrid -- and taking them two by two in "sacas" and shooting their prisoners in the head, burying them in mass graves in Paracuellos. When the tide turned, revenge was brutal. Our schoolbooks about the noble "Lincoln Brigade" leave out Paracuellos, and how that began the serious bloodshed.

Will check back by November 5th... most likely...

47139. arkymalarky - 10/20/2017 2:52:00 AM

Damn you're stupid. Desperately stupid.

47140. arkymalarky - 10/20/2017 2:53:27 AM

And why are the biggest gun nuts the biggest chicken shits? I'm just curious

47141. Trillium - 10/20/2017 12:58:32 PM

Not at all stupid.

One of the things I learned from years in NYC was that when you sense that an approaching person is a threat, cross the street. They probably are about to mug or attack you. Ignore your sixth sense at your peril.

There are scores of casualties already, fortunately Judith's relatives who were in Las Vegas during the recent massacre were not among them.

These injuries and deaths, along with more threats of violence -- plus attempts by both Republican and Democrat leaders to undermine the elected President, plus media efforts to incite violence -- appear that various irresponsible leaders are attempting to incite civil war.

A number of Moties appear to be on board with the rivers of blood and utterly stupid destruction that will come with civil war and abandonment of law. Come out into the open and say so, if that is what you want. Then live with yourself and face your victims honestly when the nation is ripped apart with your consent and encouragement.

47142. arkymalarky - 10/20/2017 4:03:29 PM

Using an auto translator: "if you see a person whose skin color is darker than yours, cross the street." What a pathetic trembling little rabbit you are.

Ginning up hate and fear with the help of your Russian atheist pals worked for one election. You're looking pathetic now trying to get it to work throughout the term of the worst president in the history of the United States. Polls are showing that your efforts are making you look like I said you look: desperately stupid.

I'm just trying to figure out how a site so tiny as ours attracted such a persistent little troll. Are you practicing for Twitter trolling that you do elsewhere? Or are you trotting these things out to see what kinds of opposing remarks you'll get? Or is what we see on the surface all there is to you? Again, desperately stupid.

47143. Ms. No - 10/20/2017 5:03:30 PM

If Mose's childhood friend and supposed Trumpster were killed or seriously injured while attending a Trump event, would several Moties feel that she was good riddance because this person disagrees with your politics?"

Seriously? I think Trump is a foul human being and that people who support him are complicit in his foulness and somehow you read that as "I think they all should die"?

That's just willfully idiotic and damn poor rhetorical practice.

47144. arkymalarky - 10/20/2017 5:07:10 PM

I just love you Msno.

47145. arkymalarky - 10/20/2017 5:10:41 PM

Ignoring the violence that white supremacists have imposed on this country for decades, miss blood and soil is trying to make people afraid of non trumpsters with these nutty conspiracy theories that she gets off of her white racist sites.
