When you got nothing else, throw around insults and bumper sticker slogans and hope the under-informed get worked up and vote.

I hope those kids succeed, stimulate others, and show up to vote these bozos out of office.

Agreed.  And do it before they cash in and decide to retire.  I don't use the term 'hate' or 'despise' very often and, I'm an open-minded kind of guy, but these people gotta go.

I hear ya, rongone.  In general, I prefer the competitions that don't require the outcome be determined by subjective judging.  Alpine skiing is a good example of one that is not .............. the person who runs the course fastest wins.

Me too.The first night of the olympics I watched the team figure skating short program. Some Italian kid skates a fine program.
Gets crushed in the scoring by a Canadian who fell twice. In the short program.
I'm screaming at the TV, That is why we hate that "sport"!

How’s this for being unresponsive, insensitive, lacking moral fortitude, and without empathy:

If you have spent any time posting on political sites, you have seen someone crowing that another is a "snowflake", "melting down", etc.

It seems that rather than refute an argument, the far right like to declare the other person "unhinged". It's a cheap shot that no serious person should be proud of.

Here's an example.
Today's Breitbart.



Establishment Right-Wingers in Meltdown over Marion Le Pen Invite to CPAC

Several members of the U.S. media establishment — including so-called conservatives — have been in meltdown on social media after it was announced that French firebrand Marion Maréchal-Le Pen would be speaking at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) this week.

Meltdown?
Well, let's see what they say. Just a warning, it's some pretty crazy ranting.


Senior editor of National Review Jonah Goldberg  accused Ms. Le Pen of being a “statist”.
,,,,,,
,,,,,,,,,,,,,
The “Reagan Battalion” Twitter account, labelled Ms. Le Pen a “French National Socialist” saying she “supports tax hikes” like far-left Democrats Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren.
There is NOTHING Conservative about her.


Stop, stop! I simply cannot handle this insane ranting! 

Come on, Alt-right. Argue the issues and stop hiding behind throw away terms like Snowflake and meltdown.

Yes, I have never seen any data that suggests that mental disorders occur more commonly in the United States.
The difference is the guns.

Check the facts ............... the problem of mental health issues in any population compared to the USA is about the same.  Geez, check it out.  No other country has the same problem with mass killings as the USA.  We have 4 gun deaths per 100,000.  The next closest country (Canada) experiences .48 deaths per 100,000.  Our rate is 8 times higher than the the country that ranks second to us.  I know, I know, facts are troublesome things.

Many more Americans believe that mass shootings result from inadequate mental health care than those who think lax gun laws are to blame, according to a new poll from ABC News and the Washington Post.

In the poll conducted in the wake of last week’s Parkland, Florida, school shooting, respondents were asked if “this event could or could not have been prevented by” more effective mental health screening or treatment; stricter gun control laws; and allowing teachers to carry guns. Fifty-eight percent of the 808 respondents said stricter gun laws could have prevented the shooting, but a larger portion, 77 percent, said better mental health monitoring and treatment would have averted it.

And, for the love of God, don't arm teachers with weaponry.  Geez-o-man!

Oh, man!  We're taking conspiracy theory to another level.  I'm glad young people are not going to buy into this bullshit anymore.

Donald Trump Jr. Likes Tweets Claiming Florida Shooting Survivor Is an FBI Plant

Donald Trump Jr. is not taking any efforts to hide his opinions on who is to blame for the Parkland, Florida shooting that took place last Wednesday. In fact, President Donald Trump’s youngest son liked two tweets that endorse a conspiracy theory that one student survivor is an FBI plant. See the two tweets below.

 #RT @GrahamLedger: Could it be that this student is running cover for his dad who Works as an FBI agent at the Miami field office Which botched tracking down the Man behind the Valentine day massacre? Just wondering. Just connecting some dots…

(The Borowitz Report)—

Millions of Americans on Wednesday demanded that Donald J. Trump’s personal lawyer, Michael D. Cohen, issue them checks in the amount of $130,000 for not having sex with Trump.

After Cohen revealed that he had issued such a check to Stormy Daniels, a porn star who he claims never had intimate relations with his client, there was widespread outrage among other Americans who had also not had sex with Trump but had not been paid for not doing so.

“Don’t get me wrong, I’m happy for Stormy Daniels,” Tracy Klugian, a florist in Santa Rosa, California, said. “I just want my check, too.”

Harland Dorrinson, a bank teller in Akron, Ohio, said that he had already e-mailed Cohen to demand payment. “I have never come close to having sex with Trump, and that should be worth something,” he said. “Specifically, $130,000.”

But, even as millions of Americans clamored to be compensated for abstaining from sex with Cohen’s client, others, like Carol Foyler, of Tallahassee, Florida, took a different view. “Never having sex with Donald Trump should be a reward in itself,” she said.
