    [–] Donald Trump Is Actively Obstructing Justice progressiveoverload 1 points ago in politics

    I thought he was trying to disguise his New York accent but failed.

    [–] Ted Cruz Has Nothing Left But Culture War Gibberish progressiveoverload 1 points ago in politics

    they don't have a platform in the sense that it is coherent and supported by evidence of any kind. America is a democracy and their platform does not have the interest of the citizens of the United States in mind. Not a single plank is good for American society as a whole. If America were an oligarchy or authoritarian regime then the platform of the republican party would make sense. We are almost ruled by a fascist party and their platform reflects that.

    His short stories are really good and 'Broom of the System' is good too. I agree with your assessment of the novel but less with the novelist.

    It is my favorite but not because it is easy and accessible. Sometimes I want easy stuff and sometimes the writing is so god damn good that even though I don't understand the novel itself much of the time it is just too good to put down.

    There is nothing wrong with roids even if you are competing in sports. Why would there be something wrong with roids in sports?

    [–] Fox News’ Neil Cavuto Spends 10 Minutes Totally Discrediting Trump-Supporting Trolls progressiveoverload 6 points ago in politics

    Yeah Dems need to grow a spine honestly. This high road shit is not getting the job done. I don’t give a shit if some democrat politician sleeps better at night because he took the high road. We need to start fucking winning.

    [–] Does anyone else feel like they're living in a dream while watching this absolutely INSANE presidency unfold? progressiveoverload 3 points ago in EnoughTrumpSpam

    Fucking rural Illinois man. Illinoisan here. These are the same fuckers who gleefully welcomed Bruce Rauner to come tank the state and will NEVER make the connection that Republican ideas are either bad or malicious 100% of the time. Literally everything is worse in Illinois under Rauner and nothing could possibly get them to admit it.

    Spreading the truth will not work. This isn’t a problem of a lack of access to the truth. Anyone with an internet connection could find the truth if they wanted to. The problem is that there are millions and millions among us for whom the truth holds almost zero value in politics. I’m not sure anything can be done about that.

    [–] White House blocks bill that would protect elections progressiveoverload 38 points ago in politics

    I’m in almost the same position (i never voted though, maybe I’m just younger than you) and the only person I’ve got to come around was my dad. And it was hard as FUCK. But to his credit he did come around. But from the rest of my family I got nothing. Nothing. They love trump more than they love me and I’m not even joking.

    [–] Paul Manafort Trial - Day 16 [08/21/18] GUILTY! ON 8/18 COUNTS progressiveoverload 3 points ago in The_Mueller

    Which is exactly why the White House repeats the word over and over. That way if none is found his base can all jerk each other off regardless of whether evidence is found of anything else.

    Surprised someone else hasn’t mentioned yet how much worse it was in the book. It’s brutal.

    [–] A blue wave is not guaranteed. We have to turn non voters into voters. I’m sounding the alarm again progressiveoverload 1 points ago in BlueMidterm2018

    Nobody is prioritizing gun regulation (which is by the way nothing even remotely close to "controversial", see here) over economic issues. Also, there is no reason at all to think you can't work on the economy as well as work on better gun regulation.

    Think about what you said. Why would it be a civic duty to just do what *you* want and vote for the guy who tells you what you want to hear? Your civic duty refers to the duty you have to make the right choice for your *society*.

    You vote for the better of the two candidates. If you don't like the candidates then you still vote for the better of the two, and then you either run for the office yourself next time or you get involved with the people who you think should be running.

    I think you need to ask yourself why your “gun culture” is more important than the millions of working poor and their children. I REALLY liked playing World of Warcraft but I would have given it up for single payer healthcare and free college tuition.

    “We’re not as bad as the other guys” is the best reason to vote for them. There are two parties. It is your civic duty to support the better of the two. Period.

    California Carnivores is a great online retailer of many carnivorous plants. I have ordered several plants from them and they are always of high quality and shipped carefully. They have information on growing the plants that they will send with the plant itself. Follow the simple directions carefully and your plant will do fine.

    [–] Trump Supporters Would Prefer Putin as President Than any Democrat, Says Ronald Reagan’s Son progressiveoverload 4 points ago in politics

    No he wouldn't. You are confusing a hardline approach to the Soviet Union with republican policies. Reagan's rhetoric on things like Welfare are literally the blueprint for what republicans say today about welfare.

    [–] White House May Have Broken Federal Law by Doctoring Trump-Putin Video progressiveoverload -1 points ago in politics

    I think our system is closer to this than you think. It’s just that our parliamentary coalition-forming happens under a broader umbrella. The democrats have to coordinate with their center and the progressives, for example. I am of the opinion that our first past the post voting system is an easier and possibly more influential problem to solve. It would alleviate a lot of our problems I think.
