I'm not sure if it's "numb", but what's the sense of shouting about it when the Trumpanzees are just going to say FAKE NEWS FAKE NEWS FAKE EVERYTHING -- IN GOD-EMPEROR DONALD WE TRUST!!!, and then throw feces at the walls? At this point action is worth more than discussion, and the important action is to not vote Republican any & every chance you get. I think that hits them where it hurts, more than us telling them about mistakes and bad choices. I mean, most of the Trump Base is like the proverbial unruly teenager, and that archtype don't listen to Mom & Dad's advice most of the time.

So while it is intellectually satisfying to see & discuss how wrong he/they are on many things, it's not like they've been listening to "sense" at any point in recent memory. The pendulum of Two-Party Politics needs to swing back in the other direction, and swing hard, and swing soon.

Also, it felt like the majority of the "here we go again"'s were posted by ccharger, who flounced, and anglefan, whose meds seem to be working and/or he's doing a good job of staying away from that which induces chicken little syndrome.

Most of my stuff was kinda just tongue-in-cheek, to be honest.

I've been basically just staying off the grid with regards to this and just letting things ride out now. Feels a lot better doing that.

Not that I've contributed a lot to this thread, but I know my focus on Trump has drifted as outside of the Iran stuff it's largely been just the usual out of Trump whereas up here in Ontario we've got our own provincial election brewing where there is some debate as to whether or not Doug Ford (he who has been lampooned on Last Week Tonight a couple of times along with his now late brother Rob Ford aka the crack smoking mayor of Toronto) is our very own Trump... Trumps still making the papers up here, but the local stuff is taking up much more of the top of the fold newspaper real estate.

Speaking as a non-American (although you can probably apply this to the world at large) I think it's a case of history is full of the shits that you can clearly point at like Trump, whereas progress (aka the good stuff in history) tends to be a slower, broader, less organized crawl/march forward that is always going to frustrate you at its pace... We are as a people going in the right direction and guys like Trump are the antithesis of that, which probably makes it all the more frustrating that we've stepped backwards by having guys like him dominate the conversation.... But we sometimes... and it's really shitty to say; have to remember that we've come very far, very quickly over the last 100 years so there's going to be hiccups... or rebounds, or reversions... or setbacks along the way that we're going to have to suffer through (I have a theory that Trump's election to office is directly attributable to people telling people that they can't say "merry Christmas" anymore").... You want to shout at the bad guys but that's easy and probably futile because they aren't the future, so really your disappointment rests with the "good guys" for not doing more.

Like gun control and the NRA... the NRA has less than 6 million members but somehow manage to make the gun control debate seem like something that is 50/50... You know if you probably asked the average person on the street if having machine guns in the hands of private citizens, or people walking around armed is a good idea and most would probably say no... especially if you kept a clear distinction between all of those reasonable and safe hunter... So I think after a while you get a bit more frustrated with the good guys than you do the NRA wackos who want to arm everyone because they are letting 6 million people out of 325 million dominate the discussion.

I mean how can we not be frustrated with ourselves, our society for not being better when it comes to race relations, gender equality, religious diversity, gun control, education... In the face of that Trump is a bump in the road*.

*That is not to say we shouldn't make sure we stand up against the tyrants and bad guys; progress does take work after all.

MAGA found it's lowest moment, so far, but given the personalities involved the worst is still yet to come. This is what it sounds like:

https://www.propublica.org/article/chil ... 1529351580

quote:

The desperate sobbing of 10 Central American children, separated from their parents one day last week by immigration authorities at the border, makes for excruciating listening. Many of them sound like they’re crying so hard, they can barely breathe. They scream “Mami” and “Papá” over and over again, as if those are the only words they know.

The baritone voice of a Border Patrol agent booms above the crying. “Well, we have an orchestra here,” he jokes. “What’s missing is a conductor.”


There are no words. There is no hell too painful to provide enough punishment that the people behind this, from the White House down to the jack-booted thugs in the prisons, all deserve.



Clearly a deadly member of MS-13:

So are there any conservatives on this board that are happy with Trumps handling of Kim last week?

And in response to this, we're now pulling out from the UN Human Rights Council.

This is why I no longer like to read the news anymore, just too damn depressing.

History is merely repetition

"Peace in our time" - Neville Chamberlain, 1938
"Russia didn't do it, America's stupid, it's all our fault" - Donald Trump, 2018

And his fans are still cheering for him.....
