    It is always telling about them when they go there in these arguments. So we are in the longest Government shutdown ever tomorrow, over a useless wall. 800k people not getting paychecks today, people literally cutting down trees and shitting in the trails in national parks...

    But, we worried about the next Democratic president trying to declare an emergency on a bathroom? The LGBT that much on his mind?

    Same reason Twitter keeps lying to me when they e-mail me to tell me they checked the tweets I reported and found nothing wrong with them, even though they clearly were in violation of their TOS: They are greedy and let bad algorithms do the work human beings would do better.

    I think it’s not a stretch to say that there’s plenty of people out there who think that empathy, sensitivity, or what-have-you makes one an “easy mark” or - more blatantly - “easy prey”.

    And the vast majority of those probably self-identify as "Christians".

    I was skeptical about her at first, but the lady is really winning me over quickly.

    Religious fundamentalists are relatively easy to spot, sure.

    Embracing the philosophies Ayn Rand, and elevating charlatan Evangelical preachers who place personal greed and power as a virtue over charity and kindness. It's not by accident, the "messaging" that conservative think tanks created to amplify a perversion of morality as "values" to their base over the course of decades, particularly during the Bush years with Fox News as the primary amplifier.

    I suspect they knew, but just didn't care. It sounded to me like they were on an anti-white screed where facts didn't matter worth a damn.

    My guess would be their endless pursuit of power and their intolerance of anything and everything that wasn't white, male, rich and straight.

    Either that or they're just too lazy to police their own search engine.

    AOC is winning me over as well. She's going to drive the old farts on both sides of the aisle batshit insane, and have the time of her life doing it. Young, capable, don't-give-a-fuck-about-protocol firebrands like her is what the Dems need.

    Of course, she is now going through what a young Hillary did. In 20 years, people might say she has too much baggage.

    I'm curious if he was actually surprised by the behaviour of his fellow party members.

    Edit: I guess he isn't judging by his comments.
    Why would he continue to be such a staunch supporter of a party that outright vilifies his religion? Self hatred?
