I've come back to the beginning of this post after writing all that stuff below. I came back to say that for those who want a short tl;dr version of it, it's the following:

It's you. You're a right-wing nut.

"Fit the bill to" is not a phrase in any language that I'm familiar with. It must be another Trumpism. But I infer that whatever it is you're trying to say has something to do with Trump. If you don't see that Trump is both dangerously unqualified and entirely unprincipled, to an extent unlike anyone else who has ever been in that position -- someone who is an international embarrassment to the US and to every American in it, a danger to democracy and to the domestic and global economy, a danger to the peaceful world order, and the adoring puppet of a Russian dictator who is an enemy of the US specifically and western democracies generally, then you are totally blinded by narrow-minded ideology and a complete absence of perspective on the world.


No, I don't think any clarification from you would be very productive, thanks anyway.

You betcha; you are so "right leaning" that you've leaned all the way over and fallen into the swamp and got yourself all covered in shit.

The only thing worse than "right leaning". The anarchists who believe government has no legitimate role whatsoever except to protect their guns and property. Most of them haven't figured out that their ideal role model was pre-2004 Somalia. Sadly, even Somalia now has a working government. Their libertarian paradise has come and gone.

You worship guns.

Instead you shit on the rights of those who would prefer not be shot, including school children. You even shit on incontrovertible evidence and plain logic by claiming that "culture" is responsible for the extraordinary off-the-charts level of US gun violence, not gun availability. This thread is not a gun debate, but I'm just pointing out what a fucking immoral and disgraceful moron you are, just like the guy you voted for. Those of us who live anywhere else in the civilized world outside of the US are quite pleased that we and our children live in relatively safe countries. If you believe that we shit on the so-called "rights" of gun nuts who want unlimited and unrestricted access to every kind of gun in any quantity, then let me say we're quite proud to be rational members of the human race.


You hate government. You just admitted it. You're a fucking libertarian. I'm not suspicious of government. They've never harmed me. They regulate commerce to keep it fair, they regulate the banking industry to keep it healthy, they've kept the housing market marvelously robust, they regulate broadcasting and run public broadcasting to keep it balanced and competitive. They pay me a regular pension. They administer my health care coverage. It works just fine. I have no reason to become a paranoid lunatic about government.

I'll try, thanks.
Alright moron, I'll bite.

1. Nitpicks over grammar and spelling mistakes? Grow up. The president we share (yes, it is your president too) is plenty qualified, maybe not in your perception where you would like someone kissing every other country's leader between the ass cheeks like your beloved demigods Hillary and Obama. He may not be likable to many but that is the allure, to have someone who isn't going to be a big fat sloppy coward lead the country, arrogance goes far in this respect. Keeping other nations on their toes and intimidated by perceived unpredictable behavior is a wonderful thing. All about perspective. The only ass kissing he has done so far t is with Russia but there are many benefits to potentially be made, especially with military. Enough with your Russian conspiracy theories, you lost so stop being a big fuckin baby about it.

2. Being right wing is about preserving the way the country was intended to be principled and run. Not attempts at shredding the constitution on emotional whims. No instead fuckheads like yourself and many others want to emulate other countries experiments with socialist agendas which time and time again have failed or are failing currently. What's one more try right?

3&4. I do not worship guns, and I do not hate government you idiot. I love government only so much as they protect the rights guaranteed to us. If they attempt or even get an idea to change or dismantle these guarantees, I get suspicious. As should you if you were not a moron. Certain protections are fantastic as long as the price isn't too big and overreach isn't occurring. Too much government is for people who cannot control their own lives and need somebody to hold their fuckin hand through everything, like yourself. If you don't like gun ownership, leave. It is here to stay and it always will, it is part of american culture and a guaranteed right. You will not get rid of them and shit on the rights of the majority to benefit a minority and punish everyone because some shithead goes on a rampage.

If you don't like the way things are here, leave... you will not be missed I promise.

I've noticed. One huge circle-jerk here sometimes. Just a big echo chamber 'safe space' for those pounding the sand that life isn't a fairy tale promised to them as children. Can't realize that not everyone can be happy and not everyone can be helped not should they in certain circumstances.

I started this post in earnest, genuinely curious, now I'm just irate that some wimpy liberal like wolfpup had to engage with me. It's almost as if they are oblivious to their idiocy sometimes, so much a moron that they cannot realize they are.

Man, that's gotta be a big job! And aren't they supposed to be busy spewing liberal propaganda from every broadcast and print outlet in the world?

With all these big jobs going on, how can the Hive possibly have any spare time left to drive conservatives away from a little ol' message board?
Who knows with the amount of wasteful spending liberals engage in, anything is possible.

This is a board about fighting ignorance. The right wing of our country has embraced anti-intellectualism as one of its tenants. It is no wonder that this board contains few conservatives. The ones that do survive are either the rare intelligent ones that reject the anti-intellectualism, or only here to try and piss liberals off.

Oh, and octopus, when you flip out every time someone tells you you are wrong, you really can't argue about wanting to learn from people with different opinions. I cannot cite a single instance of you changing your mind, meaning you aren't here to learn. Sorry.

Detention Centers. Not "Concentration camps" which have another much more prominent association.

They are not used as a negotiation tactic. Stop watching MSNBC.

First purpose is to stop illegal aliens from crossing the border. This is 100% legal to do.
Second purpose is to establish relationship between children and parents due to sex traffickers and using children as drug mules and being able to question them separately.

The conditions are in no way like a concentration camp. Knock this hyberbolic shit off.

I wish there was a little more activity on this board - there used to be some very interesting discussions. I always complain about this shit as if anyone gives two fucks about what I think. Not like anyone should give a shit what I think, usually I don't even care what I think, but I want to be entertained, or stimulated or some combination of the two; the steady exodus of once regular posters makes it harder to do. And you should keep in mind many of the posters appreciate the conservatives on the board if they can provide good content; even if they disagree with it.

I agree. Stuff just seems kind of bland and more political oriented than anything else. Probably just me though. I even miss the "who would win in a fight an M1 abrams tank or a dragon" type stuff.

Even GQ has a deficiency of in-depth topics lately.

Thoughts?
Inevitable insults?

What gives? Isn't there anything else to talk about these days or has it dried up?

President Donald Trump suggested Saturday that he is using his administration's separation of families at the US border as a negotiating tool to get Democrats to cave on his immigration demands, which include funding for a border wall, curbing legal immigration into the US, and tightening the rules for border enforcement.

Trump again falsely blamed Democrats for his administration's actions, and said they could put a stop to the family separations by working with Republicans in Congress.
As for separating families being 100% legal. That is a no too:

Thatís because I donít usually post to just say ďI agree!Ē

So when you see me post itís where I disagree, typically. So how about you donít tell me what my motivations are?

The grammar nitpicks were just the kind of the thing some of us enjoy doing only semi-seriously, but if it helps to more firmly establish you as a feebleminded halfwit, the little digression was no doubt worthwhile.

As for "plenty qualified", here we have an outstanding example of both the expressive language and the political judgment that you're so renowned for around here. He might be "plenty qualified" to preside over a beauty contest of prospective mail-order wives, but I think it's now been well established that this USA presidentin' stuff is hard. Who knew?

You have "being conservative" confused with "being a Trump Republican", for which the appropriate metaphor is a kind of hurricane-driven cretinous incompetence that pretty much destroys everything in its path.

Repeating it over and over doesn't make it so. You've already well established your gun nuttery by parroting the unintentionally funny line "guns aren't the problem, 'x' is the problem" -- where, according to His Holiness the NRA, "x" can be practically anything. I believe you favor 'x' = 'culture'. For some fucking lunatic official in Texas after the last school shooting there, 'x' was 'school has too many doors and windows' (or maybe too few, I don't remember -- it doesn't matter, as long as the message is 'guns aren't the problem with guns').

Let me try to explain this again, in a style adapted for the comprehension impaired. You know how the US Census Bureau counts up all Americans every decade? Well, each and every time they've done it, I haven't been on it because I'm, like, not there. I appreciate your asking me to leave, honest, and I would if I could, except I'm like, already gone. I thought that would have been clear from my remarks like "Those of us who live anywhere else in the civilized world outside of the US are quite pleased that we and our children live in relatively safe countries ... we're quite proud to be rational members of the human race", but I guess not. But really, I'm not there, so enjoy your guns. Try not to shoot yourself in the foot and watch out for those stray bullets.

But your post was completely idiotic, based entirely on delusions. It was a lot like a "serious" question about how the moon landing hoax was done. What the fuck kind of "earnest" answer did you expect to get?

Here, I feel bad for you, so let me give you an earnest answer:

"You're right, the SDMB has completely gone to shit, and no one knows why. This appears to have happened on October 27 2017 at exactly 03:16:49Z (Coordinated Universal Time) after which time all posts were suddenly about Russia, blaming straight white men for everything, and the 'moral and intelligence deficiency' [sic] of Trump supporters. We have no idea what happened but we suspect Russians. Or possibly meteorites."

No, no. no. Nice try by CNN but wrong. Nothing remotely like that headline was said. He does not "suggest" that at all. Maybe you linked to the wrong article.


According to The Peoples Republic of California? Credibility with that state went out the window long ago. They are illegal aliens, not citizens and do not have the same protections. Don't want to be in that situation, don't come in illegally. Simple. That reuters article does prove my second point though;

"The administration has said its initial reunifications were slowed by the need for DNA testing and criminal background checks on parents, and to determine their fitness to care for their children. "

Want to talk about delusions, how about this obsessive liberal fantasy of the spectre of cold war russia and this crazy fucking 'privilege' and systemic/structural racism garbage you keep spewing all over the place. You are a fucking idiot in the purest sense. Congratulations. Blame everyone else but Every single post of yours is filled with inane and cyclical arguments. It's almost as if you type shit to impress yourself rather than make an actual point. All you do is foster the stereotype for being a really fucking dumb liberal group-thinker.

What is all the 'doors and windows' nonsense about? Are you attributing that shit to me? Also, being conservative leaves me no choice to vote for Trump (which I did happily) you imbecile. Why the fuck would I turn coat to support the opposite of my ideals by voting for that evil pig Hillary. Try to form an actual argument instead of formatting your posts to impress yourself you liberal shitpig.

Hey you shitstick (the lift on restrictions of insults here is fan-fucking-tastic) I do like it here, because there are actual moderate Democrats and other good people who didn't swallow for Hillary Clinton and continue to suck the progressive donkey dick and are actually realists that understand you need to break a few eggs to make an omelette. I am ashamed to share the same Chicago air with such a waste of space and the other moronic progressives elsewhere who would keep voting for more of the same shit expecting something to change.

No dissenters are allowed in the party. You know this. You have to be told how to think.

Only that by admitting that AFAIK puts Trump and his administration in worst legal ground. As other articles pointed out, that is why the administration was trying to avoid saying that such an inhumane policy was a deterrent. Because that is what running afoul of American and international law is all about.

As for the rest of your pap, nowhere you point as to why judges were wrong, so the point stands. Trump failed to legally justify what he was doing.

Telling others that there is justification for inhumane policies does have the side effect of malking others realize that you are not part of the human race.

Gonna have to agree. A thread about the decline of the SDMB has birthed an all time classic pitting. Nice one.

Being right wing is about being dumber than dogshit - and dishonest, to boot. "The way the country was intended to be" included race-based chattel slavery and second class citizenship for women. Tearing that up is not an "emotional whim". It is the arc of moral justice.

And Russiapublicans have forever lost the right to whine about Liberals cozying up to Communists. You know why America doesn't get immigrants from nice countries like Norway, as Don the Con bemoans? It's because Socialist Norway has a vastly better standard of living than the US does right now. To Socialist Norwegians - America is the shithole country and it's people like you, anomalous1, and your embrace of Traitor Trump who make it so.

Really?

People ALL AROUND THE WORLD are trying to lift up their chins from the floor After Trump, and you're wondering what happened to the SDMB??

To socialist (sic) Irish, as well. When I emigrated a dozen years ago, I could liken America to an untended dumpster fire. Nowadays, its as if these right-wing shitheads are dipping homeless people in kerosene and tossing them into the fire, rubbing their hands together as they smugly beam at each other in their MAGA baseball caps.

"Fantasy"? So... all those US election-meddling, Georgia- and Ukraine-invading, civilian-airliner-destroying, UK nerve-agent-releasing, Brexit-promoting, Syria-intervening, Poland-threatening incidents... they didn't happen? They did, but it's no big deal, nothing at all like the behavior of a certain now-defunct union of socialist republics? Help me out here...

Somehow my email got on the distribution list for the daily email of a well-known right-wing periodical*. They have Disqus comments over there, and I have occasionally commented over there under a handle that bears no resemblance to the one I use here.

I mentioned in passing the kids being ripped from their families at the border. "Fake news," the other commenters said. Yeah, they literally said that that wasn't happening, that the media made it up. There were similar comments about other bits of news, but that one stood out.

Whatever our more conservative commenters think about the 'hive mind' here, what's happening there is so far beyond what y'all see here. There is no comparison.

5.)Police are agents of evil. + The justifying of breaking laws.

Even GQ has a deficiency of in-depth topics lately.

Thoughts?
Inevitable insults?

What gives? Isn't there anything else to talk about these days or has it dried up?
Here is a great thread for you to explore which has nothing to do with any of the above: https://boards.straightdope.com/sdmb...6#post21094546

What happened is that racist cunts took over the office of the presidency and apparently colluded with Russia, a hostile power to do it. Other racist cunts try to accommodate their presidents outrageous behavior that has done real and permanent damage to our democracy. These same racist cunts tut-tut and bemoan the loss of civility even though they have been calling civility "political correctness" and whining about it for 20 years. These racist cunts don't like being called out for being racist cunts.

The death of our democracy and the rise of white nationalism controlled by an outside power have not surprisingly attracted the attention of quite a few people who start threads about it or otherwise engage in existing threads about what is the most momentous event in American history since WWII. Some racist cunts are slowwwwly coming to the realization that they are on the wrong side of history and wonder what's happened to civility.

Any other questions?

Exactly this. You even have top Republican politicians in DC exhibiting "Trump Derangement Syndrome". If the Republicans are showing TDS, what do you expect the better half of the population to do?

I'm so tired of this shit. Every Trump argument somehow has to have somebody infer that if you're against Trump then you are naturally pro Obama or Pro Clinton.

This is NOT A FUCKING FOOTBALL GAME where you have to root root root for your team and heckle the other.

I absolutely detest Trump. I was never ever ever pleased with the way Obama did things and I view Hillary Clinton as basically a Trump - Lite alternative.

So please let me go on record as say that when I blast Trump I am not whining because Hillary lost and I am not opining for the good old days of Obama.

I'm pissed off because in American politics I see a steady stream of self indulgent assholes (Trump is not their leader, he is their god) who put their own enrichment or the strength of their party over actually addressing the problems of the United States and fixing them.

Another thing that I think happened is that since the 90s we've been hearing about how Red State America is the real America and the great thinkers of the American conservative movement like Ann Coulter, Sean Hannity and Timothy McVeigh have been calling us traitors; after Trump a lot of us realized, you know what? We fucking hate you back.

This country was intended to be one where slavery was legal and only property holding white males would have any say in how things were run. If that's what you mean then I suppose I have to compliment you on your refreshing honesty.

You're basically the exact same ignorant person you were when you joined (the first time you joined). So if the learning's what's keeping you here, then there's not really anything keeping you here.

Let's explore that: What have you learned here, and in what way has your mind been changed?

I suspect that he will evade this question by giving an answer about something negative he's "learned" about the SDMB or "liberals" in general.
