    I welcome prominent Democrats to make the argument that the founding of America was inherently bad.

    I would also argue that America was good for more than just some people, and that things have...
  2. I can discuss the number of trans people. ...

    I can discuss the number of trans people.

    Polls suggest it's around 0.6%.

    A Gallup poll did note that the...

    It's not a given.

    I do believe that the forming of America is a good thing. I recognize that people may believe differently, but they should also understand that their view is going to be...

    You're mistaken. I have not hinted that Wonkette was making any argument for the purpose of giving white slaveowners more representation. It would be the practical result had northerners agreed to...

    It's still better that it was done late, than to have not done it all, even if some misinterpreted it....

    Their main arguments are that the three-fifths compromise didn't work, and that it was wrong to count any human being as less than a full person.



    The South agreed with the perspective that it...

    I agree with this completely.

    The commenters seem to be aware of the issue.

    If anything, there seems to be an attempt to exploit the ignorance of many Americans about history in the framing of...

    The Wonkette piece suggests the mistake was in not counting slaves as full people.
  9. Wonkette is taking the side of the slaveowners on...

    Wonkette is taking the side of the slaveowners on this one.

    A Tennessee conservative arguing that it's a good thing that the slave-owning South had less political power is hardly an example of...

    If you can quote Republican Senators (and I'm not suggesting you can't; Tommy Tuberville is a Senator), that would be more meaningful than spending a single second discussing the head of one...

    In the most recent mayoral election in New Orleans, three Democrats got a combined 88.24% in the first round of the runoff.

    The president of the Women’s Republican Club of New Orleans does not...

    If you're right about this, it should say somewhere in the infographic that this is meant to be a criticism of people who view respect for the scientific method as uniquely white. This story got some...

    The ideas are damaging because it's racist as hell to suggest that virtues like planning for the future, caring about intent when considering punishment, or getting married before having kids are...

    Did the Smithsonian misinterpret her when they used her for a source about how delayed gratification, a justice system where intent matters and an emphasis on the scientific method are unique to...

    The link had been updated, so they got rid of some of the worse stuff, with the explanation that it's an ever-evolving portal.

    Here are some links describing the earlier version.

    I will have different views on this as a Republican.

    It seems to me that Critical Race Theory is essentially a catchall for stupid left-wing views on race.

    An example would be whoever was...

    It was an extraordinary period of classic foes for Spidey, with Chameleon, Vulture, Tinkerer, Doctor Octopus, Sandman, the Lizard, Electro, Mysterio, the Green Goblin, Kraven, and Scorpion all...

    Porn movies routinely made the top ten in the 1970s, so it's probably not a matter of audience choice declining over time.

    There is an argument that the quality just isn't that good. In the 1970s,...

    Perhaps.

    It would depend heavily on what they're willing to say about Trump. If they say they still think the election was stolen, they won't be able to argue that they were misled by a President....

    The point of the Oscars is that people in the film industry vote for their peers. So, how would you get hundreds of actors to nominate something more commercial?

    It is excellent.

    There are so many episodes that could easily have been a competent prestige film.

    Here's a few ideas.

    Start it earlier. It consistently ends pretty late Eastern Time, so it could start at 7:00PM.

    I'd recommend allowing Slate Voting for the nominations, so that voters can...

    I think I was unaware of Mister Met when I first started calling myself Mister Mets online.

    I do use Mr. Met as an avatar in other settings.

    I saw the picture somewhere years ago.
