    [–] Dems prepare to force Trump to reveal private talks with Putin brallipop 1 points ago in politics

    Oh... yeah... that's why Trump chose Rex: Exxon is heavily tied to Russia... God, the administration is so corrupt I feel stupid for not assuming the worst of every single thing. This is so exhausting

    [–] Dems prepare to force Trump to reveal private talks with Putin brallipop 3 points ago in politics

    Is it even a contortion? He said "I didn't need to do this" at the national emergency announcement. He just does what he wants knowing it isn't proper, and admits as much while actively doing it.

    [–] YouTube’s copyright system is so broken that you can just make a channel and strike anyone. WOW brallipop 1 points ago in assholedesign

    There is no way to prove any [thing] did not happen anyway. yt's entire copyright system is predicated upon logical impossibility.

    [–] CBS leaves Trump for 'The Price is Right' brallipop 3 points ago in politics

    Does anyone else feel the dichotomy between Trump's frequent rejoinder of "walls work" and the UK's position that a hard border between Ireland and Northern Ireland is unnecessary given technologies such as drones?

    I just feel there is a lack of reporting within the USA about Brexit and it may be because we are both arguing different stances on concrete vs no concrete.

    [–] Texts show collusion between police and far-right extremists, Oregon official claims brallipop 23 points ago in politics

    God, can you imagine the frustration of the black community, which saw all the Rodney King-beating cops walk, when a few years back that rash of cop-on-black shootings occurred and seemingly every week a new one was caught on video?

    And then.... nothing. fucking. happened.

    I mean damn, for decades we have all known about police brutality against African Americans, the pics of civil rights marchers getting hosed and dog-bit are in our elementary school books. The black community has been making movies and singing songs and shit, and after finally getting police brutality on tape white America dismisses Rodney King as one stand alone incident. Then, years later, we have multiple examples in a short span all across the country, and again white America shrugs because this time it's just too inconvenient to remember all the victims names.

    Like, fuck, what does it take to get basic acknowledgment?

    Is it really collusion if they are all in the same side? Isn't that coordination of two organs if the same body?

    [–] Senate Votes to Confirm William Barr as Next Attorney General brallipop 5 points ago in politics

    Yep, the House needs to start winning the PR war. Yes, let's hold hearings for testimony from his sexual accusers. Let Trump watch on tv

    [–] Andrew McCabe Says He Believed Donald Trump May Have Won Election 'With The Aid Of Russia' brallipop 8 points ago in politics

    Oh shit, that makes so much sense. It was more reported as when pressed on his choices by journalists Trump would whip out the election map to imply "I can do what I want because I won." And now we can look back on every time he said "no collusion" and know he knew he was guilty and covering his ass before Special Counsel was even convened.

    [–] [Megathread] Federal Judge Concludes Paul Manafort Lied to Special Counsel brallipop 5 points ago in politics

    For the general public, just watch fox news, and only fox news, for like two days. If you need a break, tune in to Rush Limbaugh. They aren't getting this information.

    [–] [Megathread] Federal Judge Concludes Paul Manafort Lied to Special Counsel brallipop 3 points ago in politics

    Excellent point. "The buck stops here." GOP can't make the argument Trump isn't guilty because you can't prove what is in his brain. That would amount to Trump being a figurehead president and only his officials would get prosecuted. No. You can't keep a puppet in office to advance criminality.

    [–] A record 7 million Americans are 3 months behind on their car payments, a red flag for the economy brallipop 1 points ago in personalfinance

    Correct me if I'm wrong but many times the car itself is put up as the collateral for the loan to buy the car right? Is that relevant to this mounting debt bubble?

    [–] [USA][FL] Porch Pirates end up in cuffs over Mickey Mouse curtains. brallipop 5 points ago in Roadcam

    That's what I don't get about porch piracy: What are you even stealing? Who would buy mickey mouse curtains from you? Sure, if you hit on a phone or laptop you can resell it but how often is that in the package? And even if you get electronics, how could such limited income even support your efforts?

    Is there some big aspect of porch robbing that I'm missing? A giant black market ebay?

    [–] BBC cameraman shoved and abused at Trump rally in El Paso brallipop 1 points ago in politics

    Would it be poetic justice if he died in a fire caused by such a violation of procedure? "Pack more in to rub my ego—Save my own skin, fuck the rest of 'em"

    [–] BBC cameraman shoved and abused at Trump rally in El Paso brallipop 2 points ago in politics

    Wow, I never realized... Even in his little made up brags his lizard brain waggles its forked tongue.

    [–] BBC cameraman shoved and abused at Trump rally in El Paso brallipop 7 points ago in politics

    The second paragraph is almost verbatim how I came to leave the conservative views of my parents.

    I was listening to BBC world news a few days after the 2018 midterms. The reporter was talking about vote counting in Florida and said something to the effect of "Volunteers here are attempting to count all the votes they have in time to make the deadline..." and my mom shouted from the other room "They need to count all the LEGAL VOTES!!" And it was like a big slap: "legal votes?" How could anyone vote if it wasn't all properly set up? But that was the way fox and glenn beck were presenting the minutiae of rules and the statements of politicians.

    hmm, maybe if we just ignore Trump he will continue to say things are happening that aren't, thus satisfying his base while not actually causing any harm. They'll just pass us by as they "progress" and we'll be free to look at the world and help it for real. A man can dream...
