Re: The Official Former President Trump Thread

I agree with your broader point, but would argue “Black Lives Matter” does inherently mean that black lives matter as much as non-black lives. It would be relatively meaningless if it could...

Re: The Official Former President Trump Thread

Not trying to drag you further into discussing, but to explain my previous post: I would say those fall mostly under socially liberal in today’s America, hence saying you strike me more as socially...

Re: Rush Limbaugh has died

I probably didn’t explain it well and may fail again, but it just struck me how meaningless it is to ‘celebrate’ the death of an evil person who’s lived a full, long life. Everyone dies and him...

Re: Popular Movies You Just Don’t Get

I watched it twice ages ago and it didn’t click with me. I revisited via blu-ray last year and really enjoyed it, though not to the degree of some its most ardent admirers.



This is the main...

Re: COVID-19 POLITICAL Thread

People generally dread the negative consequences of taking an action much more than suffering the same consequences due to inaction. We mistakenly feel like the former was our fault while the latter...

Re: The Official Former President Trump Thread

It’s probably a sign of how far right the Republican Party has drug the word ‘conservative’, but I would’ve pegged you more as being religious and socially moderate. In today’s climate, I’m not even...

Re: Rush Limbaugh has died

Two things have occurred to me as I’ve seen the reaction to Limbaugh’s death.

First, there’s been a lot of focus on specific offensive statements. I get the appeal of that because it’s easy, but...

Re: The Official Former President Trump Thread

If we could be assured of a fair election, I’d have no problem with Trump as the 2024 nominee, as I think he’d lose worse than he did last year. Given how we’ve seen Republicans, especially at the...

Re: Derek DelGaudio's In & Of Itself (2021, D: Frank Oz)

This was entertaining, but I was expecting more. His show seemed only tangentially related to the point he wanted to make, as opposed to really reinforcing it and driving it home. His card work was...

Re: I Care a Lot (2021, D: Blakeson) S: Pike, Dinklage, González, Wiest, Messina

I feel like the writer put a lot of thought into the scam and most of the plot, but very little into the ‘business proposition’ at the end. Still, it was a great little cat and mouse game and very...

Re: The Official Media bias thread ptIII

I mean, I tried to summarize what each got in trouble for as literally and simply as possible. If you think any of them could boiled down more fairly, I would be genuinely curious as to how.

Re: The Official Media bias thread ptIII

Re: The Random Political Meme & Social Media Posts Thread

This. Totally this. This x1000. The ex-mayor’s post is such a perfect encapsulation of how stupid a large portion of the Republican Party has become. ‘What, you actually need the necessities you...

Re: 30 Coins (HBO) D: Alex de la Iglesia

My wife and I really enjoyed the finale and are enthusiastically in for season 2 if they do it. I get the gripe about the effects budget showing its limitations in the opening scene, but I felt like...

Re: COVID-19 POLITICAL Thread

I disagree with the first half of your point. This virus was almost tailor made to exploit our society’s weak points. The people most commonly severely affected were older (and hey, already going to...

Re: The Official Former President Trump Thread

That’s a big question, as it encompasses the mindset of a huge number of people both in the mob and in the President’s circle. I don’t believe there was anything so coherent and consistent as a...

Re: The Official Former President Trump Thread

One thing that feels like it’s been glossed over is that Trump was in a unique position to end the insurrection almost instantly. Even for those too willfully blind to admit that he caused it, I...

This is why aggressive voting rights protections need to be Democrats’ number one priority after the immediate threat of COVID. Without that, I think your prognosis is likely correct. With a level...

Your last sentence is what worries me. I do think people will relax due to the number coming down.
