US Politics 2018: A Tragicomedy

A forum for respectful discussion & exchange of views on news, current affairs & thought-provoking topics; please read and be aware of the guidelines prior to posting.

Forum rules

Welcome to the News, Current Affairs & Debate subforum.

This forum is the place for intellectual discussions relating to news, current affairs, or philosophical & scientific debates. There are some guidelines that apply specifically to posts in this forum, of which you will be expected to have made yourself aware before participating. They are as follows:

  • Intellectually stimulating topics only. If you can't have a deep discussion about something, it does not belong here.
  • If you're going to post, have something to say. When you make a new thread, write the initial post in a way that provides an introduction to the topic and invites further discussion. You could tell us how you feel and why, but always aim for constructive responses that further a discussion about the ideas involved, rather than a simple list of people's views. (Instead of asking "Are you a vegetarian?", discuss some of the arguments involved.) This guideline likewise applies for responses to topics.
  • Write using good English. That means full sentences with proper capitalisation, punctuation, spelling and grammar. No one is perfect, though; this is not an invitation to criticise others for minor mistakes.
  • Be nice. This is a forum for rational discourse, not flame wars. No one is always right. Be respectful of other people's views and accept that we are all entitled to our own.

These guidelines will be enforced by the moderators based on their best judgement, and anyone who does not take them seriously will lose the privilege of posting here. Spammers will be banned from the entire forum.

I'm waiting to see how her relationship with Brown will be used against her in a campaign, but I think that could potentially be one of biggest liabilities.

So her biggest weakness is what? A personal relationship from the 90s? Shit if that's her biggest liability then she's set


Tell me your opinion on Holder as a 'expressed interest' potential candidate and Booker as a speculative candidate.

Eric Holder doesn't have any kind of name outside of the politicos. Thing is that I doubt he will be a broadly appealing candidate because he's not been actively involved in the day-to-day (or really, hour-to-hour) blows of current politics. He wouldn't get a lot of support and would drop out quickly imo. As for Booker, I'm not a huge fan of him. He'll get panned for his ties to big pharma and his stances in a lot of areas. I think a lot of people wouldn't trust him

New York Attorney General Eric Schniderman has been accused of assault by four women. I AM SO FUCKING MAD. Governor Cuomo has demanded his resignation. oh and Missouri Governor Eric Greitens is facing two felony charges and accusations of rape - but the GOP refuses to demand his resignation.

thing is, Hamas were not the people that Israel massacred. They were Palestinians protesting the movement of the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, breaking with long standing US policy of treating Tel Aviv as the de facto capital of Israel. But its okay because this will bring about the Rapture and He shall return to judge us all.

And on the MS13 thing, I think its safe to say that everyone, Right and Left, would like to see violent criminals deported. However, it is clear that the Trump administration is deliberately conflating violent gang members with legitimate refugees and immigrants. And its pointing out that calling people based on the colour of their skin "animals" regardless of what they've done, is fucking racist. But we knew that after the rapists comment, so what's fucking new

"Salah Bardawil, a senior Hamas official, told Palestinian news outlet Baladna TV that 50 out of the 60 who died on Monday were members of his organization, while the rest were civilians."

Cite evidence for this baseless claim.

Read one of the definitions of "animal." It has nothing to do with skin color

He never said Mexicans or their immigrants are rapists. He said some of the illegals are rapists and criminals, which is factually true.

"This is America" isnt even that subversive or good... (ducks). But seriously, go listen to Kara Brown's critique of it. It does nothing to make any meaningful point beyond the violence. Its just violence for the sake of violence. Its not genius as everyone likes to say

here's an example of the fake news media doing what they do best.

https://www.cnn.com/2018/06/18/politics ... index.html

in this article, CNN sneakily tries to sprinkle in suggestions that Trump is a segregationist based on a few words that have nothing to do with the situation....

I mean the only reason i lowkey support this is that if we ever want to get to mars, we need more space tech. And as the majority of tech discoveries are done by the military.

Highkey not psyched about the fact that knowing the us they’ll set up a GPS satelite like system but then with nukes.

Also the children are freed from the cages, alas.
