  1. everyone talking about john mccain possibly retiring this term.... i hear he has a "two more" in him,,,
  2. its a bad avi, dude sorry winky smiley
  3. @dmc515thanks for the thoughtful response, will reply tomorrow but in the meantime for anyone hanging their hopes on gillibrand as the great lib hope....
  4. ps you guys are amazing
  5. how is this thread still going on?
  6. its a shitty policy based on cops supposed right to privacy; but instead of only being able to turn them off in certain, short intervals like when they use the bathroom, they are supposed to actively turn them on before they shoot a citizen or plant drug evidence... totally makes sense. maybe now that they killed a white lady that might change, as it should. you wanna be a cop, have the power of life and death over anyone you meet? fuck it we all get to see the hog (or equivalent, hog-type analogue) eta: what kind of weirdo points their dang chest down towards their junk when using the can? no one should see your shit anyway, jfc
  7. not gonna break this quote up, but: first of all, i think we determined previously that i am older than you; so show some damn respect you little punk, get off my lawn and cut your hair. the political class has a duty and obligation to press the moral high ground, and present effective messaging to bring the (maybe not recalcitrant, but perhaps... prevaricating?) section of the base around: single payer/uhc/m4a is the morally right plank to stump on, as well as having a fairly good chunk of electorate behind the idea. you asked a few posts back what's to keep the right from taking it away? the fact that has been brought up many times: its hard as hell to take away good entitlements once they are granted. too many of the white shit heel liberals i talk about today are straight up saying "single payer is never going to happen", and don't just caution against it "now", but actively fight it. those anthony rendon's of the party who fight against it without aknowledging and working to overcome its obstacles should be jettisoned from the party as anchors that only serve to drag the platform to the right. as to "how gleaned from the content quoted": its simple. was fighting, actively and vociferously, for the franchise and equal rights of those disenfranchised and oppressed by the u.s. government the morally correct position to take? if yes, then anything less is simply a craven concession to the reactionaries of the right. i say fuck that, i'd rather be on the right side of history. thats how you get shit like "separate but equal" or "dadt". fuck that. its not the coward politicians that are slowly dragging this shit into cceptance; its the radicals and activists that keep fighting, agitating, and working against the ossified politicos that get this shit to be widely accepted by the public and slowly the fuckers come around. i want, for once, some somewhat forward thinking politicians to actually try and be halfway ahead of a critical issue and drag the 'big tent' along with them, and this, along with climate change, is the fucking issue of our time, and it needs to be goddamn treated as such ps if you want me to capitalize, get a damn avi. i cant tell you from damn borbasil or whatever the fuck he is now
  8. fairly certain the progress those radicals were pushing for was not incremental; the shitheel white liberals (et al) forced incrementalism, to all of our shame no. we are strictly anti capitalist, the state of your petty booj eyes are not my concern so you are saying it wasnt better to achieve more equitable and egalitarian rights for african americans, women, and other disenfranchised and oppressed persons because the timing wasn't right, politically? cool, cool... sounds like something we should really strive for edit: was my last post deleted? or did the board eat it?
  9. well, i'm not playing that 'what it the gop did it' game. and fuck if i concede that that the cra proves the converse of my point. are you trying to say there weren't fucking radical agitators pushing the politicians toward that point? that lbj or jfk (lol) were pushing that because it was politically expedient? that civil rights in the 1950/60's had greater real public approval than single payer does today? fuck, the incrementalism is just one more black mark on this nations history in the fact it took so fucking long
  10. lol, imagine going back in time 50 years and replacing this boards discussion of single player with CRA, and consider how these arguments for incrementalism would look
  11. terrible news about mccain; sure glad there isn't anyone else currently suffering such terrible afflictions, and if there are it's good they have the same access to top quality healthcare he does, and if they don't at least he did absolutely everything in his power to try and see that they did.... god speed little buddy ill be praying for you
  12. apparently the man arrested based on this "discovery" has been in Jain since Jan on $50k bail (sentence has subsequently shorten and ultimately charges dropped after states attorneys office was shown video)
  13. not political, but friendly reminder
