    Default All-purpose news and politics thread: Two Steps Beyond!(Part II)

    At Matt's suggestion...

    There is a notion that rather large threads may contribute to server load. As such, we are experimenting with closing existing threads to see if it helps matters.
    Feel free to start a new thread on the same topic.

    "Three" felt a little presumptuous.

    Edit: For what it's worth on the "Troubleshooting" end, I just got that "Requires That You Wait 30 Seconds..." message when I posted this one.

    Two steps part 2?

    That's about as bad as when there was a sequel to the prequel of The Conjuring.

    Can't you do anything right, #30? What exactly do we pay you for? And when is the last time you got us any good pictures of Spider-Man?

    You might want to put a little of that "Pointless Grumble" time into "Figure Our How Not To Post Everything Twice" time.

    Two II must be a result of the double posting problem.

    So is this new tread going to be like double mint gum, doubling our pleasure and fun, or will it be the generic non brand version that only lands us pain and So it looks like Japan is worried it's next on Trumps trade war hit lists

    Speaking of taking another thread:

    After
    1. There were no meetings with Russians.
    2. There were some meetings with Russians but they were about adoptions.
    3. There were lots of meetings with Russians and they were not about adoptions but there was no collusion.
    4. There was collusion but collusion is not a crime.

    Now we have:

    5. There may have been crimes, but who knew this stuff was criminal?

    Olbermann laid it out over a year ago -- at this point it's about watching all the pieces of evidence fall in place.

    NRA Gets Trolled With ‘Thoughts And Prayers’ Over Reported Financial Woes

    “Don’t send money.... thoughts and prayers should suffice.” Brilliant stuff, folks! Brilliant!

    Twitter Explodes Over Donald Trump’s ‘Disgusting’ Attack On LeBron James

    “LeBron puts children through school. Trump puts children in cages.” And here's an unexpected defender of LeBron....

    Melania Trump Comes To LeBron James’ Defense After President Insulted Him

    President Donald Trump insulted the NBA star’s intelligence in a late-night tweet. Well now, damn sure didn't see that coming from FFLOTUS (Fake First Lady Of The United States).

    Russia Names Actor Steven Seagal Goodwill Ambassador To U.S. As Twitter Weeps

    Actor hails Putin as a “great world leader,” does not believe Kremlin interfered in the American election. My response: "BWA-HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Fat Toad Steve hasn't been relevant in years, so who cares if he's slurping Bad Vlad like Trump.

    If You Want To End Racism, Stop Forgiving Racists

    We live in a moment of crises. Police continue to gun down and taser African-Americans. Whites have called 911 on blacks for something as routine as having too many coupons at the checkout or sitting in their own homes. The Department of Justice threw its weight behind states that have targeted black voters for disfranchisement and removed or blocked more than one million citizens from the ballot box. The Supreme Court followed up by sanctioning the massive voter purges in Ohio that violated federal law and also left in place Wisconsin’s extreme and racist partisan gerrymandering.

    Meanwhile, white nationalists are proudly running for national office. Add to this President Donald Trump’s campaign of terror against asylum-seeking immigrants at the U.S.-Mexico border, reports of sexual abuse and torture of the children ripped away from their families and evidence that some of the records to reunite them were destroyed. No wonder so many Americans are asking, begging to know: How did we get here?

    Forgiveness got us here.

    Counterintuitive though it might sound, the American penchant for unconditional forgiveness is at the root of our present turmoil. We have tended to forgive those who waged the most sustained, brutal assaults in the name of white supremacy, without requiring them to repudiate their beliefs or actions in return. We have rationalized that forgiveness, that generosity, as “moving on” and as helping the nation to heal. But misusing forgiveness does neither.
    I'm all for that. Forgiving racists instead of kicking in the ass has been a dreadful mistake.

    Double post. Rebooting the thread hasn't helped. It's still wonky.
