In four years, at an adjusted cost of just $130 billion, the US prevented war-devastated Europe from becoming a shithole for another half-century.

The sad thing is that the right wing's view of Russia is based purely on decades of carefully built up propaganda.

Putin is actually a very, very weak leader. He was put in power by the oligarchs and serves at their pleasure. The minute he stops being useful to them he will disappear, replaced by whoever they choose to succeed him. The only question is whether the public unrest that causes that replacement will yield a successful transition to a new leader or a lot of heads on pikes (oligarchs, Putin, and other leaders of the corruption).

Again, I doubt large-scale public unrest is a concern for Russia--but if you're right, let's not leave out the likelihood that it would lead to yet another despot and yet more oligarchy.

You'd be surprised just how little of the public supports Putin vs. just puts up with him because no reasonable challenger has come along.

The older populace are Putin's base, while the younger populace mostly loathe him. That's why when there have been widespread protests the crowds are always full of young people. In the middle are people who don't vote because they believe there's nobody on the ballot worth voting for.

However since alcoholism is doing a pretty good job of decimating the Russian population, his base is shrinking every year. The only way he's held onto power this long is by getting rid of all reasonably competent challengers. He dealt with Navalny by creating charges to stop him from qualifying for the presidential ballot, but most are either poisoned or murdered in the streets.

Has anyone else noticed that people are becoming generally more belligerent and less concerned with reality outside their point of view?

It seems to me like more and more I hear comments that sound like his tweets; get into arguments against opinions based on nothing more than hearsay; etc.

I blame social media. People get insulated into little pockets of like-minded individuals and immediately exclude anyone who doesn't agree with them.

Personally I just want Trump to stop holding campaign rallies and golfing and start doing his goddamn job.

Over 80% of the positions he's required to appoint to manage agencies are unfilled simply because he hasn't gotten off his fat ass and sent candidates over to the Senate to rubber-stamp.

Anonymous 17/06/23(Fri)15:14 No. 346 ID: 7e897d

I agree. It's like we've industrialized high-school.

He has no idea what he's doing. Hard to believe anyone doesn't know it; but I guess the purpose of those rallies is to gather the shit-brains that still love him so they can refill their brains with shit before they run dry. If he doesn't keep pouring a stream of fresh rhetorical diarrhoea into them, who knows where they'll turn for a refill.

The Democratic Party will run Hillary again in 2020.

There's no other explanation for their continued efforts to keep her in the limelight.

This is quite possibly the stupidest thing they could ever do to themselves and I cannot comprehend why they would persue such an obviously futile goal as putting Hillary Clinton in power.

Now we're getting into the actual geographical and cultural divides that the political disagreements seem to follow.

Incidentally, if you need more arguments for state, county, and municipal rights, imagine what those assholes in the places you don't live will do when they pass laws that have no relevance to your own life and in fact make it more difficult.

>imagine what those assholes in the places you don't live will do when they ... have no relevance to your own life and in fact make it more difficult
Which is Trump and the GOP in a nutshell.

Assholes in far away places with no grasp of anything approaching a modern society making everyone's lives more difficult because they think coal mining is going to take off or unskilled labor factory jobs are going to surge and a billion other fantasies that never will happen no matter who the fuck you elect.

Rather than adapt to the modern world they want to force everyone to return to the dark ages because they distrust anyone with an IQ over 40 who talks to them like a goddamn adult.

We've already got that.

When local government passes laws that a GOP state government doesn't like, they write laws that invalidate the local ordinances. When state governments pass laws that the GOP federal government doesn't like, they try to write laws that invalidate state ordinances.

The GOP is only about local & state rights when they're some kneejerk topic the GOP agrees with. If you write something that's the opposite of their kneejerk then all local & state rights can go right the fuck out the window.

You will march in lockstep with your wealthy master race or they'll remove your voting rights.

Apparently Trump couldn't figure out how to delete a tweet on his new iPhone, so he's back on his old unpatched KitKat phone with the Russian-loaded rootkit.

I think people have been going down the wrong track when it comes to Trump threatening Comey. They're missing the obvious.

Trump spends his life surrounded by conspiracy theorists. They funnel every stupid idea posted on the internet 24/7 to keep him in a perpetually agitated, distracted state. This is a man who think global warming is a conspiracy created by China, that fluoride is a form of mind control, that jet contrails contain biological agents, that vaccines cause autism... it's really not much of a stretch for him to think people are recording his every move every single day.

Given this I find it highly unlikely that Trump was threatening Comey because Trump had recorded conversations. Instead he was threatening Comey because he thought Comey had recorded their conversations.

The threat wasn't about Trump going to the press with a recording. Its a threat against Comey going to the press with recordings of what Trump said.

Dutch Trump lost today.

I think he lost because his hair wasn't up to the challenge.

In his views and ideals he fit right in with Trump but his hair certainly wasn't comparable.

This is why he lost.

You can't defend a corrupt incompetent by pointing out another corrupt incompetent.
