    Guess I'm in the minority in hating "Predators". Can't stand Adrian Brody, Topher Grace is "meh" but then his weird heel turn and inclusion just seems pointless (other than to give Brody's character...

    I was saying that he gets attacked as too leftist by those on his right (center-left Democratic types) on the board. He criticizes the Democratic Party (as do I) as being too conservative...

    On theft of land and expansion of their territory (which, shocker, moves their borders), if you're pretending it doesn't exist/happen and have somehow missed continued international condemnation for...

    30 usually gets attacked from the right (relatively speaking, solidly center-left posters) by those two quite often in the main politics thread. 30's far left, by this board's standards.

    So you in the last century you had Truman, who was basically appointed by FDR and coming off the most successful run of a President arguably ever (and it was still close). Then you have Carter who...

    There are issues like gay marriage or gay adoption or the ongoing discussion of trans rights that, while you and I may think should be left to the individual, nonetheless are voted on by...

    That's true, and I'd agree whatever happens Flores is a hero and had more guts than I ever would (not a tall order/high bar, but still).

    It's not. There are many issues that we collectively either vote on or vote for representatives to vote on that don't apply to us at all. It'd be like saying only those who have children should...

    Unfortunately it still looks like they're going to bury it because it's a PR nightmare for the entire league, that's already had scandal after scandal (after scandal) to deal with, and ultimately...

    In fairness to Obama if you did pay any attention to politics at all his keynote speech at the Democratic Nomination in '04 was electrifying. I was saying, "who the hell is that, and when's he...

    Going with the "not intentionally unlikable" standard I'd say:

    Tara from Buffy (brought up in thread about characters I was glad they killed off).

    Ezekiel from "the Walking Dead".

    On the borders and land theft, they're one and the same. When you take land your borders expand. This isn't complicated. Are you still denying the land theft?

    On the bolded, this is good. We got to look at a textbook example of "whataboutism" the other day, and now we have a follow-up textbook example of what the kids call a "strawman". That is, when you...

    I think it's fairly widely known in their universe that the Old Republic and the Jedi themselves at the end were ineffective, slow to act, and generally out of touch. That's part of why the Empire...

    I realize the second set of things, and simultaneously realize the first set of things that you disagree with. Shooting children, cutting off power to Palestinian areas, bulldozing homes (in order...

    How will he respond to clickbait from an obviously biased source? Exactly the same as I will, ignore it. If such a doomsday fantasy were to actually happen and trade were cut off from China...

    I read that as Aaron Rodgers, and was thinking "oh no, I know he's considered to be an asshole but what did he have to do with this?"

    Glad to hear it, even if it's successfully appealed for...

    This is good, we have a textbook case of "whataboutism" to go over. First, yes it's obviously true that there is bad behavior in the countries surrounding them. That's known, has been discussed, is...

    Yes, as I stated there's a long history of it. There's also a long history of Israel doing some pretty s##tty things, including their relationship with Apartheid South Africa (peas in a pod), which...

    I believe the Captain meant "rape is considered to be more violent than murder" or at least more extreme/disgusting, less understandable (we've probably all had fleeting fantasies about hurting or...
