#6353951 What do libs say about their own kind protesting everything?

Posted by Voltaire on 08 November 2018 - 11:16 PM

"Ah...here honey...here is something we can go protest today! Get your coat and lets go"

 

No the conversation is:

 

"Hey, dipsh*t there's a protest downtown, we're going. Put down your playstation controller, take out the garbage, and go."

 

"Yes, ma'am."

 

"Hurry up!"

 

"Please let me just finish up my post at footballguys whining about Trump. Just two more minutes."

 

"No! Now!"

 

"OK. I suppose I can pin back my manbun in the car on the way."

They ought to consider segregated bathrooms, water fountains, and bus seating as well.

Maybe she'll need help now to wipe her ass with the Constitution.




#6353270 White House revokes CNN's Jim Acosta's press credentials

Posted by Voltaire on 08 November 2018 - 11:26 AM

Jim Acosta is a hypersensitive pompous jackass and if being an obnoxious jerk who refuses to pass a microphone to his colleges so he can hog the time and ask unrelated questions about the migrant "invasion" to Russia to fake bombs, then he gets what he has coming. CNN can easily find another hypersensitive pompous jackass to take his place who at least acts civil.




#6352906 White House revokes CNN's Jim Acosta's press credentials

Posted by Voltaire on 08 November 2018 - 04:25 AM

The guy thinks that he is the show at the press conferences.  It is a big stunt on his part to boost his ratings.   They should let him come but never let him ask a question or speak. 

Probably the best solution. He was seated front and center in the Helen Thomas seat, he should be in the back corner.




#6352809 What will the democrat House do to heal the divide in the nation?

Posted by Voltaire on 07 November 2018 - 09:28 PM

Pelosi will govern like the pragmatic corporatist insider hack she is while throwing dog whistles to the SJWs the entire time but not offering them much else which'll piss them off. Meanwhile, she'll woo but eventually also piss off and leave hanging whatever moderates were able to win GOP districts as well since she has zero empathy with voters in the middle of the country.

 

Ironically, she may be able to get more done by negotiating with Trump than the unenthusiastic, limpwristed mewing neocon Bush-era holdout Paul Ryan could.

 

Or getting nothing done which is pretty much more of the same of what Paul Ryan and his Jeb!fanboy flavored corporatist insider hacks offered Trump. 




#6352515 Any Jew Experts?

Posted by Voltaire on 07 November 2018 - 12:28 PM

Maybe I can go my whole life without being invited to a Jewish wedding or funeral so I can avoid having to figure out what to do. I already make an ass of myself enough unwittingly as is. I may have gone to college but white trashiness exudes out of my pores anyway.




#6352341 Mid-Term Results

I feel like no one cares about the poor people.

Do you mean people who care about the poor or people who like to have their pictures taken while pretending to care about the poor?




#6352186 Election predictions

Posted by Voltaire on 07 November 2018 - 06:12 AM

A lot of Jeb! Republicans retired rather than defend their seats. Good riddance. If they were replaced by moderate/conservative Dems or non-fake Trump Republicans, that works for me. Dems made gains in the suburbs where Trump's obnoxiousness doesn't play well with GOP women, they may be willing to return to the GOP if he acts halfway decent (one can dream). The more Senate seats they win now, the bigger cushion they have to keep the Senate in later election cycles, hopefully Trump is still in office when Satan's great-grandmother keels over and another SCOTUS seat opens up.

 

GOP made some nice gains in the Senate, knowing a bit of how Mitch McConnell's brain works after watching him these last two years, it's surely ahead warp zillion on judicial (and other) nominees.

 

Losing the House may not be so bad for Trump.  Paul Ryan's neocon Jeb!tards have been pretty useless anyway. In 2020, he was going to run against Nancy Pelosi anyways and now we'll all  get a nice reminder of her in full Pelosiness.  She's also been showing signs of being a bit less sharp than she has been. One thing the Jeb!tards did prove useful about was keep the investigations at bay, soon we'll be neck deep in subpoenas and scandalmongering. Trump has had some shady business deals and shady friends, we'll see if they blow smoke or find something.




#6351206 Guatemalan Caravan

Posted by Voltaire on 05 November 2018 - 09:35 PM

Is it too late to introduce crocodiles into the Red River ecosystem?

Before they were Mexicans, they were Aztecs who would raid their neighboring tribes for human sacrifices. The Spanish came along and convinced them it was a bad idea to do that anymore, but maybe they can be persuaded to change their minds and revert to their old practices.

 

I mean those same neighboring tribes are walking right through the heart of Aztec territory right now.




#6351070 What's an interesting local initiative in your state?

Posted by Voltaire on 05 November 2018 - 04:45 PM

I'm very in favor of the independent board to determine election districts---ie anit-gerrymandering proposal.   Recreational MJ on the ballot too.  

This... uh... this sounds like Michigan as both are on the ballot.

 

If you're from Michigan, somehow that's escaped my notice all these years. (Something, I may be wrong, but IIRC you're from Ohio)

Dude, that would be crossing the line.    :nono:

Well, maybe get an extra day's usage out of your Halloween costume.




#6349845 Why do you hate BLM (non peenie edition)

Posted by Voltaire on 04 November 2018 - 03:07 AM

 

Our ancestors behavior does not excuse ours. Nor does the time they lived in excuse theirs. They are what they are and should be judged as such.

 

As for this place, I think most here are reasonable people. Like you for instance. Outside of your family values insanity, you're a cool cat. But I think you must be living under a rock if you don't see that a handful here are definitely hateful and racist.

Meh. I'm sick of dead white guys being beat up constantly despite building, discovering, and creating the most advanced, free, fair, safe, and just civilization, arts, and societies ever including especially for women and minorities even at the expense of their own progeny. It's a poison spewing victim mentality that has spread everywhere.

 

As for FFToday, I wonder how much of the racism here would evaporate and go away entirely if minorities worked, had crime or educational rates, and valued liberty and the culture within a statistical standard deviation of the rates in the white community without the aid of handouts and the constant complaining all the time.

 

You mentioned the racism of older relatives, I think of my grandmother's brother constantly griping about "the Japs." I suppose being a Navy vet on a ship fighting them for a few years in the 40s, then as we're from Detroit, hating/envying their auto companies successes at US expense through the 70s and 80s, and their seeming taking over in the 90s through when he died, maybe that was his world view. He hated them. In China, they also hate the Japanese. I don't know any American my age or on this forum who hates the Japanese. They're smart, they work hard, they pull their own weight, and they don't complain. I've been in China for nearly seventeen years now, and I catch flack every now and again for being in China, but not ever in all that time for having a Chinese wife.

 

If minorities step up, I'm not sure that the racism at FFT is uncurable. Of course, you look at peenie who has stepped up, works pays taxes, doesn't mooch off the government, and leads a rather ordinary life and still gets grief for being black.That's pretty pathetic, she's doing things right, she's not the problem. Compare her to GFIAFP who also got grief, he got 10x more than peenie gets despite being white, because he was/is a bum/mooch. People are more p*ssed off about that.
