Yeah and Democrats will take control of the House in January, something people didn't think would be possible a short while ago. Whatever "agenda" Trump had, and especially the most controversial parts, can't happen through legislation. That's why I've been snickering at those "WE ELECTED A MEME HAIL GOD EMPEROR TRUMP" idiots since 2016. Just as politics swung so hard right they are bound to swing just as hard left eventually. But go ahead and relish you win in Florida, the South's sewer line.

As is usual in Florida, the lead has narrowed to the point that they're legally required to do a hand recount of all ballots.

And of course DeSantis is claiming that everyone should stop the recount and proclaim him god-emperor of Florida because he's got a little (R) next to his name and racists like him more.

Technically speaking, giving the choice of two genders based on either observable genitalia or genetic testing is insufficient: there are a range of hermaphrodites, and a number of chromosomal variations that should be accounted for.

That said, I support the administration's position that sex is not to be defined by how one feels, but by clinical fact.

Being transgender is a matter of identity, which the freedom of each individual to define when and how they see fit shall not be curtailed by requiring a medically sound description of their genetics and physiology for official uses.

You can still be whomever you want to be with a birth certificate that accurately describes the body you were born with.

They all tried communism; it didn't work. They turned to mixed systems for sustainability. It turns out communism and anarchy have that in common: neither is sustainable in its uncompromised form.

Communism needs to be global to work. It's in the manifesto if you ever bother reading a book.

Thanks to stepped up efforts to stop citizens from exercising their right to vote, don't be surprised if that map has no red or blue by 2018 or 2020.

The question then becomes when do people throw off the shackles of the .1%? It won't be a pretty response.

I'm honestly not sure if the people stripping citizens of their constitutional rights have actually thought that far ahead. Being born into more wealth than one could actually spend in one's lifetime doesn't make someone intelligent.

The easiest way to discredit the idea that it's impossible to be racist against white people is to have white supremacists take it up. "Maybe if you had an important, powerful race, you could be racist to me, but you say you can't because you literally don't matter." That idea would rapidly get shut down real quicklike.

This joke is funny because she is white racially and culturally and that she was obviously therefor not born in Kenya. The part that's a jab at Duck for perpetuating the "birther" conspiracy isn't what people will be laughing about when they hear this.

Hillary makes this racially charged joke on mainstream TV and no one calls out her shit?

If the Kent State students had been armed in 1970, the Ohio National Guard would have killed them all.

They were protesting for peace; they didn't want to have to carry guns, kill people, or fear for their lives--and four of them were killed for it.

Peace is not derived from armament. Deterrents are an inherently short-sighted solution: they only pause an enemy who has already decided to attack you until they acquire equal or better weapons. Best case scenario, the peace of the gun lasts only as long as no one gets angry enough or crazy enough to risk mutual annihilation--someone like that will always be around.

Did you check out how many guns the Vegas shooter had? These aren't people with thousands of firearms. Just having more than a half dozen puts you above the range of a normal gun owner. Most only have one or two.

But one thing is for sure though, most gun owners can't be trusted to properly secure their firearms. Because if you think the gubbermint is going to break down your door at any moment for years on end you can't properly secure your guns. You have to make sure you can commit suicide by cop. Otherwise your family would have to (gasp) sell your guns to try and get some semblance of an inheritance. And that's the worst fate of all. Your guns are more important than your life.

>Actually, the nuts hoarding guns tend to be mass murdered
Not really. They tend to end up "accidentally" shooting people.

Which is why the NRA is so adamant that there be no limits on the second amendment. If irresponsible ammosexuals were no longer able to purchase firearms, gun sales would plummet, and the NRA slush funds would dry up.

Anonymous 18/05/29(Tue)08:34 No. 800 ID: e7aae7

I was thinking Waco, Ruby Ridge, etc. I guess the point there being that they hoarded enough weapons to get the government's attention, and then they were murdered (and helpless to defend themselves against overwhelming numbers, tactics, and armament).

>most gun owners can't be trusted to properly secure their firearms
Apparently this is how you defend your children's freedom to mass murder.

>Vegas shooter
There's a conspiracy theory that this was an arms deal gone bad, that the guy accused of the shooting was laying dead on the floor the whole time, and that his customers escaped--some of them firing shots in nearby streets on their way out. Normally I wouldn't give it much thought, but I noticed a number of articles have recently been revised to make the guy sound more creepy and mentally disturbed--none of that was in the interviews people did in the days immediately following the incident; it was added months later. Then again, it's probably just a story and the later additions might just be the NRA's usual tactic of portraying any mass shooter as a deranged individual who shouldn't have passed the background checks. That's the one angle they're willing to give, since they know background checks are useless--saying they'll support stronger background checks lets them sound like they actually care without making any change to their arrangment with the politicians and gun manufacturers.

There's a conspiracy theory for everything. Conspiracy theories are supported by people who demand that everything fit their preconceived narrative of the world. They see nothing wrong with on one breath talking about how the government is completely incompetent and can't do anything right, while in the next breath talking about how the government is behind all these massive super complicated conspiracies that would require superhuman levels of coordination if not outright telepathic communication.

I’ve been thinking a lot about the meeting between Trump and Obama at the White House, and here’s the thing.

Obama used to be a law professor. This is key.

Law school is so, so different from college.

In college, everyone expects there to be a “syllabus day,” kind of a grace period where they can show up and get the lay of the land, figure out the bare minimum that they can get away with, the TA gives everyone their office hours, there’s an introductory lecture, and everybody leaves a few minutes early to go take a nap or something. You do the bullshit assignments, you say something in class now and then to get your participation check mark, and figure out how badly you can do on the final and still pass.

But see, in law school, all the methodologies you’ve spent the last 17 years operating under go out the window. Day one of law school is you being thrown into the deep end of the pool—you’ve had a homework assignment for two weeks now, and it’s to read the first 200 pages of your casebook. And now it’s you and the teacher (who is usually as smug as Alex Trebek) gauging and assessing what you managed to absorb while you skimmed through all those pages of reading so you could hurry up and get to the other 150 pages of reading for your next period class, in front of 50 people who are all smarter than you. And if you fuck up, or you didn’t do the reading, you are at the mercies of not just the professor, but the silent satisfied judgment of your peers.

Law school is hard, and it will make you feel stupid and tongue-tied and like you don’t know anything and can’t form an argument—because you don’t, and you can’t. Everybody there has had a 4.0 since birth. Everybody there was the smartest kid in their class, and you’re all rabidly competing for a sliver of a chance at something down the road. It’s petty, and savage, fiercely entrenched in a culture of formalities and ceremony, and exactly like Washington DC.

Yesterday when I was driving home, the NPR reporter talking about the Oval Office meeting mentioned that Trump had thought it was going to be a “getting to know you” type meeting, but that he was surprised when Obama stretched their talk out to 90 minutes before sending him along to the Capitol building where he met with congressional leaders for more lengthy meetings and stuff he didn’t want to do.

And he hasn’t even gotten to the actual job yet.

That's pretty much what I posted, except to point out that there's nothing new about it. Yeah, the "everyman" shtick is old, but at least before mass media I could excuse people for not really knowing much about the candidate's personal lives. Now it should be the most embarrasing and shameful ruse that no politician could ever pull off with a straight face, but it seems to work even more effectively than ever now that they can smear that bullshit all over the country in nanoseconds.
