Re: The Thread of Democrats

Looks to me like leaving the administration of election results in the hands of partisans, be they Democrats or Republicans, is not a particularly bright idea. Another reason, though a very minor one, why I am not surprised that the US is so fucked up. How can we identify anyone as 'not partisan'? ...

The People's Marxist Republic of San Francisco strikes again! :woot:
Don't exaggerate. Just call the judges what they are: Hard left, left wing or socialist.

Brief visits, I imagine... :tea:
From what he posted it was both times, but he clearly was there long enough to know first hand what that site - and the behaviour of its members - were like.

You clearly never went there. They made the most ridiculous examples in the 'problematic' thread look mild.
Going by what Coito Two posted at ratskep he registered at A+ twice to debate feminism with its members.

Re: US 2018 November elections

Teachers are always viewed suspiciously by politicians, because they may actually cause children to think... :tea: And some of them carry weapons of maths instruction at all times. Even if they don't use them they know how to inflict grievous pain with a carefully aimed and forcefully thrown cream ...

Re: The Thread of Democrats

Well I'd have to see the actual reality of the proposal, but I think it's safe to say you waste way more money on military spending than you do on tourism spending. If you aren't willing to cut your defence budget back to sane levels, then you are going to need higher taxes address your staggering ...

Re: The Thread of Democrats

Well I'd have to see the actual reality of the proposal, but I think it's safe to say you waste way more money on military spending than you do on tourism spending.

Re: US 2018 November elections

They'll move further and further left If the Dems keep moving left, they might eventually hit the center! :this: , but you can't get that through to anyone who doesn't know the difference between a social democracy and socialism. Anything to the left of Milton Friedman is "there be dragons" territo...

Never mind, you can soon retire into being a backwater. The new world will use chopsticks... :tea: Well, I sure hope not, I'm dreadfully clumsy with those. Don't worry about that.

Re: US 2018 November elections

Bitch, shut the fuck up. I don't see "voter suppression everywhere, in everything". Based on your links, you do. You think voter suppression includes voters proving citizenship. This is just too comical. Based on what you just wrote, Coito, one might conclude with no less justification that based o...

He won't look at this thread will he? I mean - the title?
Why not? He might take the opportunity to tell us that the Netherlands has the best of all problems, which is the problem of improving a country that has no problems.
