    [–] Donald Trump will never meet with Vladimir Putin privately again, says Lindsey Graham theyetisc2 2 points ago in worldnews

    Man... I mean, I bet tons of foreign leaders would still meet privately with the president, so long as they aren't discussing treasonous acts, there's no reason to worry about the interpreter being questioned.

    I think what graham actually said is far worse than what the article misrepresents.

    Man, if you're able to decipher that you're seeing double you've got better vision than I had!

    It used to just be blotches of colors, that blue on the drawing might have been indecipherable to me, even at that distance.

    Lasik is fucking dope, and should be covered by insurance....well... there shouldn't be insurance in the first place.

    [–] State Department deletes a statement condemning Russia over MH17 downing right after Trump's Putin summit theyetisc2 7 points ago in worldnews

    We hadn't even finished working through Bush era fuck ups before trump got elected.

    If we want any hope at a bright...or at least stable... future we need to deal a death blow to the Republican party. It needs to be removed from ever having a chance at holding power again.

    The idea that someone would vote for literal traitors is fucking insane.

    We will never forget the 298 innocent civilian lives tragically lost on that day

    The GOP is desperately trying to forget.

    and we call for justice on their behalf.

    Everyone except the GOP.

    If you think we're pissed, imagine the rage this guy's feeling right now. Like a great cosmic joke, played uniquely on him.

    I'm 100% sure he helped push the party in this direction.

    If he is JUST NOW talking shit, and didn't start back during bush and all through out obama, then he's just as responsible for the modern GOP as every other propagandist pushing the bullshit "messaging" of the corrupt GOP.

    Yes, dubya was also heavily misled by cheney, rumsfeld, and the other neo-cons HE put into positions of power.

    That is why he is ultimately responsible for all their actions, he's the one who gave them the power to destroy the nation. And he is also the one with the final say, that is the presidents job.

    So yes, sure, we can excuse some of what dubya did as the evils of cheney etc, but we cannot absolve W of the ultimate responsibilty to lead the nation in good faith.

    I absolutely despise this idea that we have to "disagree" with the right.

    No, they're liars, and their policies are based on lies. It is NOT a disagreement, and treating it as such is why we keeping sliding further and further down into the pits of fascism.

    The right is liars, period. We aren't disagreeing with them, they're lying.

    Is disney actually worried about losing the alt-right "market?"

    Who cares, fuck them.

    People need to mount a counter campaign that saying disney catering to the alt-right is not tolerable, or even buying into one of their hit jobs.

    I mean the GOP blamed the 2008 financial collapse on Obama, so it shouldn't be surprising that they'd blame their other failures on him as well.

    I think it is more to do with people waking up to the idea that citizens of other nations absolutely do not deserve to be "collateral damage." And that any amount of collateral damage should be too much.

    We had the Iraq war to look at, and see that war was really just for rich people to make money. The GOP falsified CIA intelligence, lied to the american people AND congress, and the Vice presidents company made billions of dollars off the war.

    We were finally able to see the horrors of war, broadcast nightly.

    I'd say Obama's bigger criticisms are the use of drones and surveillance by the NSA.

    So... again things that were instituted under George W. Bush?

    The only criticisms people have of Obama eventually boil down to, "Obama was unable to undo all the damage the republicans did to our nation."

    US politics isn’t about truth anymore.

    Stop that, you need to qualify your statements, as you're only fueling the "both sides are the same" argument when you say, "US politics" instead of "Rightwing politics" or "GOP politics."

    US politics is about the truth, it is a battle FOR truth. The Democrats and the left represent truth and reality, while they battle against the rightwing which represents propaganda, misinformation, and lies.

    The problem is that it looked like the IRS was targeting the GOP, because the GOP is in fact filled with criminal enterprises.

    [–] Conservative columnist: ‘I would take Obama back in a nanosecond’ theyetisc2 2 points ago in politics

    Because they weren't scandals, they were the GOP going on witch hunts.

    Everything the GOP has done over the last few decades has been cold and calculated. They conducted non-stop witch hunts against the democrats, so that when the GOP retook power, they could claim the dems were doing the same thing that the GOP has done for decades.

    Not only did the witch hunts serve to spread propaganda, misinformation, and pure lies, they also served to besmirch the dems, specifically hillary clinton.

    The GOP are an enemy of The United States of America, the western world, and to the very concept of democracy itself.

    Or you tell them that the only conclusion the 9 benghazi investigations had was that GOP funding cuts were responsible for the lack of security/preparedness.

    Like one in every 5 people I've approached this way seems to snap out of it when presented with facts and reality.

    And then their next breath is either an attack on you, or some other preprogrammed fox news response.

    "But he's a great businessman!"

    "But he ran what was the most profitable casino in the world into the ground?"

    "Well I'm sure he had his reasons!"

    "What possible good reason could someone have for destroying an extremely successful/profitable business?"

    "I don't know, that's why I'm not the businessman!"

    "So you don't know why he's a failure, but you're sure it is on purpose?"

    "But he's a billionaire!"

    "No he isn't."

    "Where's the proof???"

    "The burden of proof for his claim to being a billionaire is on him, he could have released his tax returns like every other president."

    "System Error: GOP stooge line of thought lost, searching for personal attack to disengage from possibility of having to think for oneself."

    What are we going to do? Issue a warning before/after every commercial break on Faux News that what they're watching is lies and misinformation based on russian propaganda?
