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.

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...

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

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.

47146. arkymalarky - 10/20/2017 5:11:21 PM

For future reference,I'll just call her Miss BS for short.

47147. Ms. No - 10/20/2017 5:12:06 PM

"plus attempts by both Republican and Democrat leaders to undermine the elected President, plus media efforts to incite violence"

I didn't notice you scolding anyone for the eight years that the Republicans tried to undermine and depose the duly elected President Obama.

We wrote rules into our Constitution for the removal of the Chief Executive in the event that such proves unfit for office. Nowhere in the Constitution does it say "Well, you fucked up and now you have to live with it."

Not speaking up when one disapproves of elected authorities is a dereliction of your duty as a citizen of a Democracy.

It's only fascist states where you have to shut up and take it or suffer the consequences.

One of a dime a dozen stories in the Trump age. And they were pretty frequent before.

http://www.slate.com/blogs/future_tense/2017/11/03/why_a_conspiracy_about_antifa_starting_a_civil_war_saturday_won_t_go_away.html

Interesting article explaining the origin and source of Miss BS's latest hair on fire paranoid fearfest. wonder if she's in her hidey-hole yet. Of course her MO is to post outrageous racist offensive material with the creepy candy coating of reasonable sounding diction and then Slither out when she's called on it. It'll be interesting to see if she comes in November 5th.

47150. arkymalarky - 11/4/2017 5:57:03 AM

It's not showing up on my phone, so I hope my post didn't Jack with the margins.

47151. fromTX - 11/19/2017 9:49:44 PM

...that cheesy picture of Manuchin and his doxy wife at the US Mint holding the sheet of dollar bills: it should have been captioned, "These "ones" are for YOU!"

edit: I think from here on out, when we come into possession of paper money with his name on it, we should mark through his signature. Just a thin line with ballpoint pen...a blue ballpoint.

(this is wabbit posting for JaH)

47152. winstonsmith - 11/19/2017 11:36:29 PM

Ha! I like the idea of crossing out his name.

47153. Ms. No - 11/20/2017 9:34:35 PM

I think that is an awesome idea!

Can we start a social media campaign?
