    [–] What Trump has said about Afghanistan in the past Grown_Man_Poops 1 points ago in politics

    "I love the war in Afghanistan, it's my favorite war. I hope it goes on for a thousand years."

    [–] Christopher Columbus statue smashed in Baltimore Grown_Man_Poops 1 points ago in politics

    That is certainly an option. I do think consideration must be made to the historical significance of Columbus. While he most certainly did not "discover" America, his voyages ushered in a monumental change in human history. The "Columbian Exchange" transformed the way humans exist on this planet. He is remembered primarily for that transformation and not for the atrocities committed against the indigenous peoples (although, we certainly should teach and remember those atrocities.)

    I feel Columbus is very different in that regard than Confederate generals and soldiers, who are remembers solely for engaging in violent rebellion against the United States for the purpose of perpetuating slavery.

    [–] Christopher Columbus statue smashed in Baltimore Grown_Man_Poops 1 points ago in politics

    I'm much more in favor of leaving statues of Columbus in their place and erecting plaques that provide the history of the atrocities he committed against indigenous peoples.

    [–] Trump Settles on Afghan Strategy Expected to Raise Troop Levels Grown_Man_Poops 1 points ago in politics

    It's nice to see the president fulfilling his campaign promise to escalate the war in Afghanistan. /s

    [–] Trump ‘Sad’ Over Removal of ‘Our Beautiful Statues’ Grown_Man_Poops 13 points ago in politics

    Slavery was abolished by the 13th Amendment which was passed in 1865. If Grant owned slaves after the war, he did so as a criminal because owning them was an illegal act.

    [–] The huge problem with comparing Lee and Davis to Washington and Jefferson Grown_Man_Poops 26 points ago in politics

    The difference is this: Washington and Jefferson did not lead a violent rebellion against the United States of America for the sole purpose of securing the continued legality of slavery.

    Anyone who doesn't understand that is either ignorant of history or a racist or both.

    Trump Doesn't Understand

    Sounds about right.

    [–] Alabama takes holiday for Confederate leader's birthday Grown_Man_Poops 1 points ago in news

    "Many Alabama state offices are closed today" Does not mean every state office and court was closed. But you are right, I reckon i'll just go back to fucking my cousin.

    Stop playing the fucking victim. Nobody is accusing you of being stupid, a redneck, or of "fucking" your "cousin". Grow the fuck up.

    As for "many Alabama state offices are closed today does not mean" blah blah blah...this article seems to suggest that all state offices were closed. The fact that it is a "state holiday" suggests to me that all state offices were closed.

    [–] Alabama takes holiday for Confederate leader's birthday Grown_Man_Poops 1 points ago in news

    Every state office and state court was closed. What do you mean it wasn't widely observed?

    I mean, sure, Hardee's and Walmart were open. We aren't talking about a celebration like Christmas. But to say that it wasn't widely observed is flat out wrong.

    [–] Accused NSA leaker’s stepdad: ‘She is a patriot’ Grown_Man_Poops 7 points ago in politics

    Fox & Friends doesn't know what the hell they are talking about.

    [–] Breitbart Writer Fired Over Racist Tweets Turns to Crowdsourcing for Medical Bills Grown_Man_Poops 8 points ago in politics

    After reading her previous tweets, the one that seems to have gotten her fired is pretty tame.

    Fuck this woman, I am not sad at all that she is in the position that she is. The world would probably be better off without her.

    this isn't a widespread occurrence that reflect the state as a whole

    It's a state holiday!

    [–] Russians Targeted Illinois Election Database, Congressman Confirms Grown_Man_Poops 18 points ago in politics

    You are assuming that it is only Illinois. This could have been a widespread effort involving many states but only information related to Illinois was leaked.
