But with everyone caught up betwen the "two" sides, people will forget... there's actually more than 2 sides. ::tinfoil::



What? Like a pair of dice? Romes, don't confuse me. I have enough troubles.

The NC GOP twitter page is outraged that Tim Kaine wore a pin of a Hondourian flag during his speech. Only it was a pin given to family members of Service people serving overseas.

You can't make this stuff up.

Haha, oh, geez... I saw that pin and thought, "Oh, he has a family member in the military," and then I immediately thought, "Somebody is going to slam him for that pin somehow..." Now I know how.

Because the Trumpers can hit higher notes than the Tromboners.
It's so overt, it's covert.

Both mainstream parties are fractured and in disarray.

Time for the tea party folk to start their own party, and the Berners to do the same.

There has never been a time in human history, let alone American history, when a political party hasn't included people with vastly differing viewpoints. It's actually a healthy thing. Look at what's happening to the Republiholes. It's become a question of adhering to a strict orthodoxy for them, and anyone who doesn't adhere to that is shouted down. Look at what has happened to anyone who actually wants to compromise or work with Obama.

The tea party is just a bizarre, extreme version of Republican orthodoxy. The Bernie-poo movement is just kids getting pissed at their parents because they didn't get a new car when they were 16, Take 500. Splintering the parties into various factions and sects won't improve anything--it will just increase the volume of the squabbling. Worst case scenario: we turn into France. And who wants to be France? Not even the French.

The Democrats will crush the Republicans in this year's elections precisely because they have proved better at unifying than the Republicans. The Democrats are acknowledging their differences but uniting for a common goal. The Republicans are screaming at each other over being or not being "true Republicans." Game all but over. It may even come to a Democrat majority in the House, despite the Republiholes' criminal gerrymandering.

Not if we pay them to build it on the way out.

It's an asinine idea that has gotten far more discussion than it deserves:

1. If built in Mexico, it would be an invasion of the territory of a sovereign nation--an act of war.
2. If built in the US, it would necessitate seizing by eminent domain the landholdings of every single individual and organization that owned property abutting the border.
3. Your silly comment aside, it would cost a truly insane amount of money, and "they" couldn't pay for it even if we somehow convinced them to (and calling an entire nation criminals and rapists is a sure-fire way to get them to see things your way).
4. Trump would not have the authority to make it happen.
5. The eventual cost from the choking off of cross-border trade (either by complete closure or creating bottlenecks) would be in the trillions--hard to swallow for those business-savvy Republicans.

All that aside, anyone who thinks that the presence of Mexicans, legal and illegal, in the US is anything but a strong net positive needs to get back on his/her meds before it's too late.

You're right. We should be calling them a-holes and remind them to take their meds til they see things our way. You also seem to think its ok to make fun of one's skin color. All great ideas.
