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?

>opinions you so fervently believe in
There's that presuming you know what I believe in again.

>They had nobody on the ticket to vote for who they believed in.
This is correct. What I had hoped to accomplish during the election was to convince such people that it was in their interest to vote for any third party, even at random, in such a situation. Leaving the problem in the hands of pro-active voters and the two major parties has not served their interest; they should do something to upset the status quo. Only by demonstrating that the two major parties do not have absolute control over the American people can we force them to take an interest in serving the people's interest.

I don't expect a third party to win the presidency more than once in a century, if it ever happens, but for the sake of democracy this statistic needs to be higher than zero. Otherwise the two major parties will only become more corrupt and complacent, obstructionism and partisan bickering will only further divide the American people, and the United States will implode into a black hole of incompetence.

>There's that presuming you know what I believe in again.
True, but I'm assumed you were the guy who would have voted for the Libertarian Party even if the most popular best fit candidate in the world was on either the DNC or GOP ticket because, well, you're a Libertarian and they check all the boxes that matter for you. If you're not that guy then so be it, sorry, but he made pretty much the exact same argument as you are now.

>What I had hoped to accomplish during the election was to convince such people that it was in their interest to vote for any third party, even at random, in such a situation.
Which is a ridiculous thought, people will only vote for candidates they believe in. You are not deciding on steak vs. eggs for dinner, you're casting a vote for who will lead the US for 4 years. You need to take this seriously.

>they should do something to upset the status quo
That assumes that the third party would not, in fact, be worse than the status quo. In the case of Gary Johnson, it would be. Just because you want to smoke a joint with the guy doesn't mean he'd actually make a good POTUS.

>Otherwise the two major parties will only become more corrupt and complacent
Or we could have another major conflict that unites us against a common enemy, ala WW2, at which point all the pointless bickering and stupidity comes to an end as we realize, collectively, that stupidity for stupidity's sake is ultimately stupid.

It doesn't help that the DNC has, since Clinton, adopted a large number of previously held GOP goalposts, which caused the GOP to go from a moderate party capable of getting work done to a party of extremists who think obstructionism and temper tantrums count as responsible governance. Say what you will about Tax & Spend, but it sure as hell beats Cut Taxes & Spend, which was the GOP mantra from 2000-2008.

Anonymous 17/10/19(Thu)13:57 No. 451 ID: 9973f2

I don't think that guy ever existed. I think you just presumed I was a Libertarian because I voted for Gary Johnson. I've never told you exactly what my political leaning is. To be honest, I don't sincerely believe in anyone or anything. I vote for neither the candidate I most identify with (because they are all fake) nor the candidate whose promises sound the most likely to serve my interests (because they are all lies).

I vote to create a scenario in which the government is coerced into serving my interests, because I do not believe it will otherwise.

>You need to take this seriously.
I take it very seriously. You need to look at the bigger picture.

We're not just deciding who will lead the country for the next four years. We're setting precedent for what candidates in the next election will say and do in order to get elected; we're demonstrating what our standards are and what qualities and faults we are willing to accept in our leaders. We're making both minor and major adjustments to the course the country is taking over the decades.

We're at a place in our democracy now where the requirements to become the president are as follows: you must be filthy rich; you must be a dynamic and well-known character in some field, preferably other than politics; you must have a nasty rivalry with another candidate in your own party; you must make policy statements that commit to nothing but appear to address the most recent, short-term issues facing the country; you must use big data and think tanks to take advantage of the mind of the common man; you must pretend to be a common man; you must have a trait (genetic, personality, behavioural, or otherwise) that enables you to stand out as a 'first'; and above all you must be a member of either the Republican or Democratic party.

>That assumes that the third party would not, in fact, be worse than the status quo.
A valid point. Still, I think it's important to demonstrate that we can elect a candidate from a third party and I see very little for us to lose by doing so as shit only seems to get worse with the major party presidents anyway.

So all the posting about the German election got deleted. Why? Even as a non-German I still find it useful to know what's going on in other countries and also to see what sort of trends might apply to where I live.

Right now it looks to me as though despite the number of people who loudly dislike Merkel and her party there are still enough who either don't dislike her as much or dislike the other parties more that she'll get first crack at forming a governing coalition.

We owe the Kurds their country.

They've been better allies to the west than Iraq, Iran, Syria, or Turkey ever were or will be. They have bled on the front lines on the same side as US and UN forces in numerous conflicts and all they get in return is further isolation and oppression.

The US should back not only their independence from Iraq, but withdraw from all ties in Turkey and back their independence there as well. We should take steps to ensure the territory they've purged of ISIS in Syria remains theirs, and pressure Iran to give them autonomy.

There's nothing more wrong we could do to these people than tell them they can't be free because we want the oppressive, corrupt, unstable regimes they want out of to stay in place.

Its an eternal stain on the US that Bush told them to rebel because we'd have their back, only to run away like a little bitch the instant they played their hand.

Turkey, on the other hand, has appointed a tyrant to rule, a tyrant who is determined to remain in power until his death, no matter how many citizens has to imprison and kill to maintain it. Upon his death the country will descend into chaos.

That time of chaos would be a great moment for the Kurds seize control of their destiny.

Anonymous 17/09/17(Sun)17:05 No. 425 ID: e895f3

I honestly cannot fathom what sustains the US-Turkey alliance. It's not like this regime is keeping the islamic fundamentalists at bay like the other scummy Middle-Eastern dictatorships the US was allied with before the Arab Spring fiasco. They provide safe passage for incoming recruits to ISIS, medical care for wounded jihadi fighters, and make a profit from black market sales of Syrian oil--and that's just the stuff we have proof of.

>Bush told them to rebel because we'd have their back
Indeed, such shame. Which reminds me, Obama gave them weapons, training, and hope--only to heel-turn on regime change and the anti-Assad alliance in Syria shortly before the end of his term.

Well, you can thank Turkey for being their usual shitheaded selves about Kurds and Russia informing us that they would start firing on US forces if we didn't stop making their #1 arms importer Assad cry.

They still are completely autonomous in Iraq, primarily due to the US letting them do whatever the fuck they wanted in their territory with full logistical support. At this point they have better control over it than the rest of Iraq has over its territory.

Once Erdogan dies in power they'll have their country. It's just going to take a while. Well, assuming the rest of the Turkish military doesn't get tired of his shit, instead of just part of it. Part didn't work.

Still hoping to hear from you about >>43

I'm really curious.

How many individual anus pictures is this made of?

Anonymous 17/09/07(Thu)09:38 No. 421 ID: a4d268

Well, if you want to get an exact total you'd have to wait, but if you want to get an estimate you can just start at an arbitrary point on the horizontal axis and count across, pick an arbitrary point on the vertical axis and count down (or up), then multiply the two numbers by each other. Do it a few times at different spots then average out the results. Won't be exact but it'll be in the same ballpark.

Hopefully you like looking at anuses.

Anonymous 17/09/21(Thu)17:30 No. 428 ID: d50172

That could be a lot more work than you anticipate. Those are almost certainly not each of them a unique anus picture. Collage generators usually use any given image of a collection multiple times, can use them at different rotations, etc, to get the most optimal rendition.

I would need sophisticated image processing to find out the hard way, but the creator of the image might remember the settings they specified to their generator (and the size of their anus collection).

I am not particularly a fan of anuses, but I'm not particularly perturbed by them either. I feel pretty /eh/ about the anuses themselves, it's the chance to say "Donald Trump is _____ assholes!" and publish this image in an "editorial" somewhere with lax standards.

What the fuck is an abortionist? Are there people out there who are PRO-Abortion? NO there are not.

ANTI-Abortion folks would like there to be so they can have a black and white debate about this but there can't be, because NO ONE WANTS AN ABORTION. They are not fun, they are not therapeutic, they are not healthy. All they do is stop an unwanted fetus from becoming an unwanted baby.

Someone mentioned personal responsibility somewhere. That would be VASTLY better situation then aborting a fetus. But too bad, stupid/religious/ non-responsible people have to fuck all the time.

Never forget the wealthy fuck all the time too. The difference is that they pay a doctor and institution to provide the abortion with enough compensation to prevent anyone from reporting it to the authorities.

The louder someone screams about how wrong abortion is, the more likely it is they're covering up a guilty conscience. Too bad that conscience won't stop them from doing it again.

To be fair, Kim Jong Tiny Penis can't launch anything heavier than a conventional warhead further away than Japan right now, and he hasn't made sufficient fun of Trump's tiny hands, tiny crowds, tiny approval rating, tiny Russian bribes, etc., etc. to elicit that kind of response from Trump.

Then again, even if he did, Trump's handlers wouldn't let him see it. Fox & Friends does a good job of filtering out anything they don't want him to see, and all anyone else has to do is not include his name in every other paragraph for Trump to stop reading his national security briefings.

The long game:

The right casts a shadow of treason, and bolsters the frightful spectre of Russia the left pans them for it, makes them look weak, divided, they falter; the American people--and finally the president himself--slowly redefining what it means to "hack" by propagandizing that hacking someone's dirty laundry is an attempt to sway public opinion. At the same time the left is going to be polishing the image of Russia in the self-identifying intellectual leftist core of loyal viewers as well as the channel-surfing general populace with a granule of curiosity about the outside word; helping people come to terms with Russia as a "peer" nation.

No one isn't colluding.
