Speaking of lives and their not mattering, there's been a bit of a ruckus in the same metropolitan area that's responsible for Chris-chan.

Not surprising, Chris-chan is a human black hole of suck. Nothing can resist the pull towards his shit, not SJWs, not police helicopters, not even white supremacy itself.

They were doomed the moment they set foot in his state.

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.

Everyone doesn't need to see their name in the middle of an article every other sentence in order to keep reading the article.

The only reason he even watches Fox & Friends is because they keep mentioning him.

Effectively: "Not EVERYONE should kill inconvenient unborn humans, nor should NOBODY do it, I'm just saying it should be legal for people who DO want to. This makes me the "fair and balanced" middle ground (apparently)."

I thought this was just a horrible, stupid joke on that one Simpsons episode. Is this how abortionists actually think?

Most abortion "debate" amounts to the equivalent of two children going back and forth with "nuh-uh!" "uh-huh!" "nuh-uh!" "uh-huh!" ad infinitum. In this case, what they're uh-huhing and nuh-uhing about is whether aborting a fetus is the same thing as killing a baby.

Most abortion debate consists of one side insisting it's against god's will and therefore immoral so it should be outlawed while the other side says its unconstitutional to force someone to follow the tenets of another's religion, so therefore its up to each individual person to decide whether its right or wrong for themselves.

Whatever happened to the party of personal responsibility anyway? It seems to have been sacrificed on the altar of the southern strategy.

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.

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 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.

And take more than they gave they did. I'm not disputing that. What I'm asking is, what better propaganda for the motherland if not showing off to the world its ability to not just prop up, but to make its satellites PROSPEROUS. What country wouldn't want to be in its good graces and under its wing? If the USSR had had the ability to do such a thing, the way America did, they probably would have. The exploitation they engaged in, as I see it, is in part A RESULT of their inability to compete with America. America didn't have any need for such behavior. So why would we engage in it? We stood nothing to gain from raping Western Europe. So why would we do that? You might say that, given how war-ravaged it was, there was nothing to take to begin with. But Eastern and Western Europe were equally war-torn. And yet the USSR still found something to pillage. The point is, we could have done the same, but we didn't need to. Helping Western Europe instead made us look infinitely better than the USSR on the world stage. I'm not saying that it was a purely cynical move. I am saying that it was only possible for us to do because we had the means, and that therefore it was a no-brainer. Any great power whose power was great enough to grant it the ability to do such an ostensibly benevolent thing would have done the same. We happened to be the only one that could.

You could be right. Particularly about this:
>The exploitation they engaged in, as I see it, is in part A RESULT of their inability to compete with America
That's likely. It would have been great for them to have prosperous nations along their border, but they probably couldn't have sustained them--let alone the USSR itself. It was certainly more cost effective to strip their remaining resources, though not as profitable.
and this:
>You might say that, given how war-ravaged it was, there was nothing to take to begin with
Don't be too quick to put anything past the United States. We've done a good deal more than our fair share if international dickery, but only when the profits from doing so significantly overcame the costs. The USSR was willing to accept a thinner profit margin for immediate gains; we wanted countries that would depend on trade with us and be able to give us loans in the future.

It does seem very much like both sides took advantage of the opportunities they had to the fullest capacity they were able.

Why isn't anyone thinking like this in our Middle Eastern wars? Both sides keep swapping incompetency and half-measures while the situation only gets worse and the staggering costs continue to skyrocket.

Look on the bright side. Now that Russia has openly started killing citizens of the middle east, now they're going to discover what actual terrorism looks like, instead of just Putin's false flags.

They might even discover that their own citizens become disillusioned with being a perpetual underclass and start joining in.
