    [–] 'No Collusion'? Here Are All The Trump Associates, And Family Members, Who Had Contact With Russians During The 2016 Campaign YourRealMom 5 points ago in politics

    oh sorry, I just assumed because you mentioned a two year delusion and waste of money in desperate attempt to validate hysteria which amounted to no real evidence of any wrong doing...

    you know, as opposed to our CURRENT situation which has resulted in numerous guilty pleas and convictions and has actually netted a substantial amount in seized assets

    [–] How does the moon pull the entire ocean up for high tide but it can't stop rain falling at night? YourRealMom 1 points ago * (lasted edited 2 months ago) in AskReddit

    here's a thought experiment.

    Fill a shallow tray with water, then lean it gently to one side. Water wants to be near the ground, so it'll be deeper on the side where the tray is closer to the ground.

    The moon is also a type of ground.

    Therefore, the water will be deeper at the side that's closer to the moon.

    The rain also wants to be closer to the ground, but the ground on earth is a lot closer than the ground on the moon so that's the ground it falls to. When it gets to the ground and ends up in the ocean, it'll still try to get as close as it can to both the ground on earth AND the ground on the moon. Usually that's by moving to the side of the ocean which is closest to the moon. All the water doesn't move to that side because as some water goes to the moon side, other water which couldn't get very near the ground because it was already crowded gets to choose between going to the moon side, or taking an empty spot closer to the earth side.

    Now, when you have a little tray it's hard to get one side much closer to the moon than the other, not so much that you'd notice. but with an ocean one side can be a lot closer than the other, that's why tides are noticeable.

    [–] What's the most fucked up thing someone has told you about themselves after barely getting to know them? [NSFW] YourRealMom 5 points ago in AskReddit

    People react differently, just because one of them appears to be 'good' at being social and the other plainly isn't doesn't mean they can't both be experiencing anxiety. I have a friend who is overly outgoing and basically can't say no to anyone because of her fear of alienating people. She basically won't go out without a trusted friend because the only thing that will keep her from putting herself in dangerous situations is saying no for fear of that friends reaction instead of saying yes for fear of the reaction of the person suggesting. To anyone else she would appear to be bubbly, outgoing, and always around people.

    [–] My husband (28M) almost didn’t tell me (25F) about some money that I didn’t know we had. He did end up telling me, but do I have a right to be mad that he even considered not telling me? YourRealMom 2 points ago in relationships

    I think it's understandable to be mad, but temper that with the knowledge that he was uncomfortable hiding it from you and came clean.

    Sometimes, people who have experienced instability or anxiety during their childhood will develop a habit of hiding food, money, or whatever makes them feel secure as a way of exerting some control over things when they are worried. Hoarding behavior often develops this way. I would maybe have a conversation about any anxiety he has, it may not be relevant but if it is it would be better if he could openly work through it.

    [–] I (23F) am terrified of losing him (22M) forever, after nearly three years together. YourRealMom 3 points ago in relationships

    I just want to say, who can blame you for not handling being yelled at well? That's the whole idea of yelling. If everyone was fine with being yelled at there would be no point in doing it besides communicating in a noisy environment. Something tells me that's not the type of yelling you mean.

    [–] New History. What’s Dat? YourRealMom 8 points ago in BlackPeopleTwitter

    I dunno man, it's a tricky thing. Sharks are more dangerous than bees but bees kill more people because people are a lot more likely to run into them. Of course a liberal wacko is just as dangerous as a conservative wacko but for SOME foxnews reason there just seem to be more conservative wackos

    I would counter that democrats accused of sexual misconduct are held to a much higher standard than republicans. Take Al Franken, for instance. I am not very familiar with Garcia but a cursory glance shows that although an ethics investigation found no wrongdoing, she was nonetheless stripped of her committee posts following the allegations.

    [–] Tribalism Isn’t Our Democracy’s Main Problem. The Conservative Movement Is. YourRealMom 1 points ago in politics

    to modify your metaphor: The republican party is the brush, the brush is DRIPPING with racism and discredited economic theory, and if you're a republican voter you've got your hand on it whether you chose the paint or not.

    [–] Tribalism Isn’t Our Democracy’s Main Problem. The Conservative Movement Is. YourRealMom 1 points ago in politics

    If they continue to vote as a block, and refuse to hold their representatives accountable for behavior they disagree with, then from a political standpoint we kinda have to treat them as advocates for that kind of policy.

    It's not prejudice to acknowledge that a republican voter is supporting republican policies. It would be prejudiced to assume anyone I saw driving a needlessly large truck is also racist.

    I guess what I'm trying to say is that while this may be a nation of individuals, our political system IS effectively two large groups. I'm not looking down on the republican party because of the faults of it's voters, I'm looking down on the republican party because of its actual stated and implemented policy goals and policies. This is not, "the party is bad because racists vote for them", it's "the party is bad because when elected they do and say racist shit"

    [–] Tribalism Isn’t Our Democracy’s Main Problem. The Conservative Movement Is. YourRealMom 1 points ago in politics

    Thanks for the detailed response! It is always good to get some perspective from the other side. I don't have time to type out a similarly detailed response at the moment. But in brief, I would disagree. I believe Trump has selectively enforced laws to suit his own ends (Russia sanctions, not divesting from his business interests, failure to denounce right wing terrorist groups, more)

    I would say generally I feel that to the extent that Trump has been successful in promoting his agenda, that agenda represents a net negative for our country. I'll try to go into more detail when I have time to sit down and gather sources/citations.

    Which is pretty similar to how Republican rhetoric treats immigrants, LGBT rights, and religious minorities, but when we say "stop hating on immigrants, LGBT, and religious minorities" the response is inconsistent. :/

    [–] Tribalism Isn’t Our Democracy’s Main Problem. The Conservative Movement Is. YourRealMom 16 points ago in politics

    Oh my God this is the most garbage response. What is "success" to you? Building a wall and or locking her up, or not running the country into a greasy dumpster fire?

    I mean, if child detainment and dismantling our social security system are "success" then yeah please fail.

    [–] Tribalism Isn’t Our Democracy’s Main Problem. The Conservative Movement Is. YourRealMom 22 points ago in politics

    Didn't see anything hateful there, just "they won't be reasoned with so why try to associate or work with them"

    My bet is a capensis hybrid. I have a capensis x aliciae that looks exactly like that.

    [–] Trump voters say men are discriminated against more than gays, minorities YourRealMom 5 points ago in politics

    I am also super curious what they were trying to say there. More likely voters are women? More septuagenarians are women? Women outnumber men 2 to 1 when counting by average number of orifices?

    [–] RNC Takes Neo-Nazi Money; Trump Campaign Still Hasn’t Returned Racists’ Gifts YourRealMom 1 points ago in politics

    as long as the RNC knowingly takes neo-nazi money, all the money they take is literally neo-nazi money
