I hate when they are so big they take up all of my screen and I have to scroll down just to see the next post. At least have the common courtesy to not post huge ones.
If one clicks on the picture when posting, there is a sizing option like you would dropping an image in a Word doc.

Why is the measure of division assassination attempts? Did anyone try to assassinate Clinton or Obama? The last president shot was Ronald Reagan..

Trump is polarizing. No doubt. But the seeds of division in the GOP go back to the pat Robertson days.. Until Trump establishment Republicans managed to keep hard core conservatives at Bay. When Trump showed up he simply promised to actually implement some of thier ideas and they went with it, after 20 years of being sidelined..

After the election, the Democrats specifically opted in to an aggressive opposition strategy, kneecapping the Trump Agenda at every turn. They did so specifically to keep thier own hard left motivated for the next election.. This tactic has its own price, as these same people will want the keys.. Establishment Democrats who prefer the Joe Bidens can be sidelined as well.

And for whoever pointed out that Trump is not a republican, Bernie is not a Democrat either.. that is something that grinds the gears of lifelong Democrats like Hillary.. that does not mean he won't be able to seize the leadership by pandering to the radical but highly energized wing of the party..
Only issue I take here is with "pandering," as Bernie's message has been consistent on most issues for decades.

I know some hardcore Hilldawgs want to paint Bernie or AOC as the "left Trump," but that's not a thing that actually exists. That said, it IS analogous to see how the far right and the true progressives have been utilized but sidelined election after election. There's no arguing that Trump's campaign and presidency was empowering for the people that make up his base.

When everything started in 2015, people lauded Trump for being "unpolished but honest." This was bullshit, but his unwillingness to bend for decency or the truth was easily taken as un-PC honesty by the people that agreed with his platform. The fact that he isn't a career politician and was seen as a chaotic outsider to shake things up hooked a lot of people, still does. Bernie has been in government for years, but still hasn't been accepted by the establishment, and more importantly, vice versa. Bernie and the donor class still hate each other, which is why Bernie has gained support as non-establishment despite his resume in public service.

People wanted change in 2016. Some people claim we need "stability" in 2020, but the progressives are tired of being sidelined, as you've put it.

Can you keep your shitty memes on Facebook where they belong?
Kind of crazy how Facebook went from a fun way to meet and connect with other college students to everyone posting pictures of their kids that no one wants to see to a tragic reminder that everyone I went to high school with is racist.

That... Doesn't sound similar at all. When I hear the phrase "assassination attempt" I picture something specific in my head. I imagine that you do too. In 2018 a Utah man sent poisoned letters to Trump at the White House. Was that an assassination attempt? It's extremely unlikely that the letter would've ever got anywhere close to Trump. Same thing with the mail bombs. Too many degrees removed from them to truly be considered an "assassination attempt," imo.
Yes. Those are assassination attempts. Poorly thought out and not practical but the intent was to assassinate.

Are they racist because they are Trump supporters?
Do you have children?

They are racist because they post racist memes and posts.

Supporting Trump doesn't make one inherently racist, although I would argue that it implies at least some level of condoning racist rhetoric. After all, when one gets into bed with racists, he perhaps shouldn't be shocked to wake up and find holes in his linens.

Regardless, while supporting Trump does not make one racist, lots of racists support Trump, and they tend to be the ones who shitpost the most on Facebook.

So the answer is basically yes. Wow

If you didn't read my post, then sure.

Not that it really matters, as you've made it abundantly clear that facts don't matter to you.
Did you just paint all Trump supporters with a broad brush? Because I'd like to be offended.

No.

WOWWWWWWW I can't believe you did that. :chuckle:

EDIT: BTW it's not controversial to acknowledge that Trump is a racist and that he has a lot of racist supporters, it's backed up by decades of evidence.

If we had a proper functioning system of checks and balances, not only would Trump be removed from office by now, but even if he had hypothetically ducked removal on legitimate grounds, they'd open a new inquiry as soon as he started firing the people who testified.

We are living in an authoritarian government indefinitely.

I know Stone wasn't part of the impeachment process, but whatever.

Trump tweets against the proposed sentence length of Stone, the DoJ steps in, and now the prosecutors are resigning in seemingly protest of what is happening.


Anyone know of any precedent for something like this? Trump is going to be just dangling opportunities for further inquiries.
