And yes princess if you cannot figure out why he tweets like he does he has you off balance.

He tweets the way he does because he can't form a proper sentence, lol. Pretty evident if one looks through his backlogs.

How will people respond to criticism of Trump when they realize the truth of those pushing the narrative against him?

 

Which truth is that? I can answer questions with questions too, lol.

Stormy Daniels has about 17,000 lap dances to perform in order to pay for Trumps legal fees.

That's nasty old whistle vagina. Nobody wants that.

A few days of dedicated coverage is still petty overreaction, maybe "running wild" is exaggerated slightly, but you clearly understand my point. I also think the "Trump is stupid" stuff easily qualifies as caustic tribalist bullshit and it's perpetuated daily. Outrage is a packaged product today so you need to monitor your daily consumption.

The President of the United States routinely proving that he cannot spell simple words is deserving of daily mockery for four straight years. It is unacceptable, it is mortifying, and worst of all it's done with a disgustingly undeserved smugness. Regardless, Democrats will not be going to the polls in 2020 with "smocking" on their mind. Both sides are not the same.

 

Calling out the entire republican voter base is a bit of a stretch, no? That's a broad brush and I think you're wielding it too boldly.

I don't.

 

Because if you are a moral human being, there is literally no reason in this current period to 1) vote Republican, and more pressingly 2) vote for a man like Donald fucking Trump - the former because Democrats have been slightly left-of-center at best (they also don't make anti-intellectualism a campaign platform) and the latter because voting for a person like Trump is a cornucopia of hypocrisy right out of the gate, nevermind a continuation of Republicans' most cherished pastime of shooting themselves in the foot. 

 

Also, appealing to nazis is a terrible political strategy because they are such a small population in the country. Nobody cares about getting nazis to support them nor designs policies specifically to appeal to them. Honestly would like to know why you're bringing them up.

I said nothing about campaign strategy directly involving Nazis (although Klansmen are apparently not off the table). I said that Trump did what Republicans were careful not to do - because they, unlike him, actually are smart - which was toss the locus of discourse completely off the deep end and let Republicans at large bare their shonen-style final forms as raving xenophobes, instead of dressing their bigotry up in clever disguises like "bootstraps". The consequence of this is that now the right wing fringe got their foot in the door and are well-platformed just barely below the surface, absolutely tanking the political atmosphere of this country. All because Donnie "tells it like it is". 

 

The rich are evil? How so?

Because they lobby. Almost exclusively for bad shit. 

 

Also, please clarify your bathwater statement. I asked you to explain what you meant and you used more figures of speech instead.

 

See above.

The left is far more left than anytime in my life and the right hasn’t budged all that much. I don’t know where lemon is coming up with his claims nor do I care but they are simply backwards.

Oh yeah, the left is totally about ground wars in Middle Eastern countries and the continuation of shit like the Patriot Act.

Boy that's ironic coming from a man who supports an administration that rolls back clean water regulations for no other reason than to undo something Obama did and trigger the libs: https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-46526776

See, I would say it was to just undo shit (He is pretty spiteful), but man do I think it's just sheer ignorance overall, probably because of a perceived "limitation" when it's protection. Same for the "rich people are evil and lobby for dumb shit". Like oil pipelines which rake in dumbass amounts of money but completely buttfuck any ecosystem they're a part of. It's more so frustrating to know it isn't pure evil or anything outright, but most likely just people who're old and don't understand, and can't be swayed into understanding due to a mix of age and upbringing, alongside the fact going forward with dumbass shit just secures more financial GAIIIIINS. Gotta love short term thinking when the long term consequences will not affect you when you die. The joys of being a 40-60 year old motherfucker.  Gotta love the fact vital regions of the continent will be put back at risk because of this. Can't wait for environmental and ecosystemic collapse from this and stuff like this. Will. Be. Great.

No, but highly compressed, fossilized bugs and pond scum certainly have.

It depends of what your definition of morals is. Democrats are the party of crime, drugs, high taxes, open borders, open trade, weak military, homelessness, anti-Ice, anti-police, socialism, and pretty much anything anarchy if you sum all of those up. If that is where your morals are, vote for the democrat in 2020. I consider myself as someone with high morals that are at odds with everything the democratic party stands for. I want to protect our border, lower taxes, have fair trade, support ICE and our police, have an America first agenda, jobs created for real Americans, and not give billions of dollars to countries that hate us. My morals are right in line with Trump's agenda, so yeah, I will be voting Donald J. Trump for President again in 2020, with an iron fist.

Nah, but some other dominant species will probably be around in 50 million to enjoy using us as fossil fuels.

The root cause is human overpopulation. It's not that people are consuming too much(although a few are), it's that there are way too many people consuming. The only way to prevent or put off climate change/global warming is to reduce the human population. It's not like people are going to lower their standard of living, or consume less, to subsidize the growing human population. Also, the more the human population expands, the more wildlife is destroyed. Tear down a forest to add more housing, where are the animals that used to inhabit that area supposed to go? Oh yeah, fuck them because they don't have a voice.

Shrinking human population won't stop our use of gravely bad resources that affect our planet, alongside our expansion. Both have happened irregardless of how high or low our population's been. Granted, it slows it by circumstance, but prior to the (relative) massive shift in population, things like CFCs still royally fucked our atmosphere. As did/do the use of fossil fuels. We can slow climate change (Basically impossible to stop, now, lol) by making harder pushes for safer energy use, being more efficient with it, and also making use of the areas we have now, over expanding into new, unneeded areas unless absolutely necessary. 

 

Man, imagine a world where we didn't have rows upon rows of individual houses that could store one family, but multiple rows of 2-3 story apartments that could store multiple families. So we don't waste our space.

 

Imagine a world where bumblebees aren't endangered. Whew. 

 

Weird thinking the generation born around 1980-1990-2000 will probably be the last to live a normal, full life because of this stuff. Have fun 2010s and beyond, lmao. Fucking scammed.
