Well said, ender.

Particularly how certain views take on a popularity that shuts out dissent.

As for ignoring important issues, this caught my eye.

If the Republicans want me to judge them fairly, they need to stop supporting Trump.

ender’s point that I agree with goes far beyond treating Republicans fairly. It’s about debating global warming, net neutrality, religious practices, abortion, feminism, etc. I care about that more than a hang up with a particular politician.

The politicians make the laws and hire the judges though. You can’t ignore the politicians if you want to debate the things the politicians have a say in.

Right. I’m just contesting Warb’s idea that treatment of Pence or whoever hinges on Trump. Clearly you’re judging Pence for his positions and that’s fine.

Well he also calls his wife “mother” and thinks it’s impossible to have a female friend, which is pretty fucked up.

I think the calling his wife “mother” was something that people did years and years ago.

Exactly! Just like hating gay people and women!

I’m not sure you can compare it to hating homosexuals and females.

America elected Trump. I have problems with him as you all seem to. But the idea that fairness is dead unless we eject the president from office is absurd.

Sorry but it is the way I feel. I can be fair and debate with you and Ender. But I refuse to be fair and refuse to debate with those that still support Trump. This has nothing to do with whether or not Trump has small hands, whether or not he and his wife share a room, whether or not his Vice President calls his wife “mother”, wears cheap deodorant, or picks his nose. This has to do with Trump being a complete and total disgrace to this nation and its history. Everyone that supports him and everyone that voted for him should be ashamed of themselves. You want to support conservative viewpoints? Fine. You want to support Trump, not fine.

My last post on the matter: Hate Trump! That’s fine! I don’t like him either! But hate him because he’s a disgrace, not because he picks his nose. Hate him because of his misogyny, not because he only brushes his teeth once a day. Hate him for his policies, not his quirks. Hate him because of his decisions, not his unique preferences. Hate him for his words, not his idiosyncrasies. That is my point!

I thought I made it clear that my hatred for Trump has nothing to do with him picking nose or only brushing his teeth once a day and what not.

Do you have any friends or family members (who you like) who support Trump? If so, do you tell them how you feel about them?

If I do, I don’t know about it.

There’s only two symbols. Which was the one shrugging, the square or the penis?

obviously, it didn’t show up as intended. I posted it from my new Ipad. On the Ipad, just looked like a guy shrugging. On my pc it looked like a guy shrugging plus the symbol for males. I guess on your device it must shown up like a square plus penis. I tried to delete just the symbol for males, but it only let me delete both or neither. Like I said, I have now edited the post.

yeah, from my older desk, this looks like a football play. Not a very good one either.

You Windows heathens.

no, i mean my physical desk, the think that holds papers, monitors, laptops, etc.

What is with your obsession with Mark Sanchez.

I really hope this signifies that you won’t be posting daily countdowns in this thread. But if you feel so led, please continue. (I really should put “don’t listen to me” in my signature)

we’ll see.

You do realize that Mark Sanchez is no longer with the Eagles, right?

🤷‍♂️

I don’t know what that means.

JEDIT: Is it a football play? Needs more players.

It was supposed to be a person shrugging his shoulders. I don’t know why it added the extra symbol. I have edited the post.

Bit of British politics for a change:

UKIP leader Henry Bolton’s model girlfriend was caught texting racist things and by racist I don’t mean, slightly ill-judged, I mean full-on Nazi Doctrine stuff. She’s giving her charming reaction to Prince Harry’s new fiancee being a mixed-race American:

“I wouldn’t with a Negro”
“Her seed will taint our Royal Family”
“This is Britain, not Africa”

After announcing he would make a statement this afternoon, which everybody naturally expected to be his resignation, Bolton fronted it out and said he’d “Drain the swamp” in his party. Wow. His self-delusion is almost impressive. Whatever illness Trump has, Bolton must have caught it.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-42770361

Ouch, that sounds like stuff people would say in the 1800’s. In my opinion, he either needs to resign or drop this racist girlfriend.

Fuck those assholes.

Sorry you feel that way.

Ok?

He could have said plenty of things that I would have taken issue with, I don’t see how that should be one of them.

Glad it was taken as intended. And glad to have an ally in ender. Nobody has a monopoly on strong emotions and convictions and I am in agreement with ender on this topic. moviefreakedmind’s post made me smile.

Yes, but some people have events happen in their lives that make an issue way more personal than it is for the average person.

I think we should all be civil and sensitive to others’ personal experiences. However, politics would soon become difficult to discuss if we totally avoid topics relating to our personal experiences.

I was simply urging caution and sensitivity.

You cannot assume that the topic doesn’t also have personal significance to me.

You’re right. But here is the difference. I KNOW it has personal significance to Frink. I DON’T know that about you. It MAY be true for you as well, but it is not 100% certain, yet. Now if you tell it does and you tell us your story, than the “maybe” switches to “100% certain”.

There should be no such need. I mostly stay away from talking about personal things.

Understood, but if you don’t wish to talk about it, there is no way to be 100 certain that a given topic is very personal to you.

As long as people are being civil, no topic should be out of bounds.

I never said the topic was out of bounds.

Even if you discount all the stuff about abortion, Mike Pence is a massive dick. And a weirdo. For God’s sake, he calls his wife “Mother.”

Heaven forbid! Probably watches MLP too!

Not saying he’s a stellar individual, but come on!

As we have MLP fans around here, that could be misinterpreted as a cheap shot at a forum member.

I don’t think it was intended as a shot at Chyron.
