  1. The former, if it was only between the two of them. Wouldn't vote for cb otherwise (well at least i'd need to see his platform first, and now this sounds dirty).
  2. I'd actually vote for cb before Beto, by magnitude of a million. Hopefully that says something. Plus the hot thing wouldn't be totally fake news.
  3. In his announcement video he said “We are truly now more than ever the last great hope of Earth." Little cringeworthy, esp. the way he delivered the line. He seems as loony as Warren, et al. Klobuchar is down to earth, although known to eat her salad with a comb. Resourceful. Good kind of weird 😁
  4. He seems weird foremost. I don't understand the 'hot' thing. The first time I've seen him speak more than a few words (ie., not media clips), granted, was watching his announcement video. He seems painfully phony. Some it-turned-out phony people have gotten by my radar before, so I don't think I'm great at discerning who's phony necessarily, yet for even me, it's like there's blinking neon lights around him saying "I'm full of s***." Side note: I really don't like right leaning men who, in blanket terms, take issue with women who do anything outside of a traditional gender role. But oddly, left of center men like Bernie and possibly this guy, who give lip service to progressive feminist ideals, seem in action to actually be worse in how they use women. Opportunists. Get supported by them, while being mothered by them, and try to ascend to roles they don't have much substance for. The candidate who has the best actual record of getting things done, capturing bipartisan support, and you can tell... actually knows plenty of real world ins and outs of things, is Amy Klobuchar. She's the most sturdy seeming, which dudes would tend to be more. But progressive men often just have this lack of steadiness to them. Hopefully time makes this really visible to people.

    Refusing to Apologize - We Need More of This

    Titans is describing shock factor joking, which is usually easy to discern. Sounds like Carlson was dryly sharing his actual condescending and careless sentiments in a way to be amusing but also present an actual viewpoint. I wouldn't assume Titans wants to inflict harm on his wife if I heard his conversation. I hear Carlson as a little punk dispensing his viewpoint. More power to him, the public can just take notes. Some will like him more for it, some will dislike his character, deservingly.

    Refusing to Apologize - We Need More of This

    Crowder > Tucker Both hold some traditional viewpoints that are now controversial, but character wise, the former is a gentleman at the same time. I agree he shouldn't apologize if he's not sorry/doesn't want to. But I do think he's a bit of an a-hole now, and I was neutral before/haven't watched his show enough to have a deeper impression.

    Is this wrong?

    Saw that in passing yesterday morning. That thought crossed my mind too, but in more of an "oh man, I hope it doesn't get screwed up" way rather than secretly hoping it does. Just saw this..earth buddy is kind of cute https://twitter.com/AstroAnnimal/status/1103303125459525634?s=20

    Nothing for National women's Day?

    It seems silly, if anything maybe a little patronizing. But if I did anything for it, it would be with some legitimately oppressed people in mind. Some context: Turns out there is also an International Men's day (November 19th).
  10. You think of the current state of freedom of speech, expression and assembly in the US of A?

    Kate Middleton

    Gaining some weight would help soften her face a bit and seemingly take years off. When naturally thin women aren't taking the time to eat right/enough, or they think they should be eating how they are and it's inadequate, that can happen.

    Dylan McKay suffered a stroke

    The character 'Dylan' (different actor) in the show Bates Motel helped Emma get a lung transplant.

    Illegal shoots at Deputy in California

    Little late on this but good to know It had seemed like a sense-making explanation for the incidents where the firing looks excessive from the onlooker/video perspective.
  14. Yeah, it is automatic enough you have to think of it being there for a reason. I'm familiar with studies like that. When you're actually thinking about the loss of someone in more of a passing way, that's where an evaluation of worth comes into play. Sometimes the standard for a person's evaluation may start and end with the visceral "would I hit it?" But what personally bothers me about the knee-jerk response is realizing all the times it can be deceptive. Mentally assigning negative traits in .002 second, getting to know the person later, and seeing some strong facet of affability, etc., making them a pleasure to be around. The one weird thing like this I don't mind though is when someone is neither attractive or unattractive to me, there's just something about their particular facial character I'm put off by, and it winds up being the expression of their personality on their face. First impression validated That can happen in a positive manner too. We all probably have that I'm guessing.

    Donna Trump

    Camille Paglia is secular, a classical liberal, a lesbian. She's a rare person who knows a megaton of history and wants information to just speak for itself. There isn't a corner that isn't uncomfortable with some of her thoughts.
