    You can share my kombucha anytime. I have perfected it now.

    Trump Regime thread.

    I'm not loyal to a party, but its the GOP who believes in trickle down economics and constantly pushes our economy into the dump. The Dems are corrupt as hell, but they're nowhere near as bad for the average American as the current incarnation of the Republicans.

    Mitch McConnell should be taken out back and put down. He's worse than Trump.

    Putting pressure on a government by another government is not a crime. (Not that it is a good thing, morally speaking, to be clear. Simply not a crime legally.) The goal of said pressure is what makes Trump's Ukraine thing a crime. Both parties are corrupt, yes. Both parties are not equally corrupt, nor are both parties equally bad for the average American. One is clearly better than the other.

    I'm not saying I'm not left, I guess I took hard left as far left? Is that not what you meant?

    The point is the US doesn't have a hard left. The Dems are center. The GOP is hard right. I am definitely not hard left. The GOP has gone so far to the right with Trump that anyone who is at all left of center they label as far left.

    This shit has no place in the US: AG just proved he is biased as hell.

    I'm really not hard left. Nowadays in the US if you believe in climate change being a real threat, people being equal under the law, and everyone having a right to healthcare, you're labeled as such. The US has far right and center parties compared to the rest of the world. And their far right party is led by a criminal who admitted to a crime on national TV and people still find a way to handwave it away. The GOP's utter capitulation and defense of Trump, no matter what he does, is going to destroy them.

    The both sides argument is so dumb. One side is clearly worse than the other and has been for the past decade plus. I'm honestly tired of arguing with you, Ngata. Your fundamental understanding of reality differs from mine. You can't have a debate when that's the case.

    You're way too late on the Panthers pick, son. That game was almost over by the time you posted this, lol.

    Issues are not purely black and white, Ngata, cmon. I know you know better than this. "Our troops need to go home" does not mean we should drop everything we are doing right now and get everyone home immediately. We need to be working towards that end, preparing for that end. That's my main issue with our foreign policy. We have no end-game. Not even Trump is pure black and white. I have supported what he has done in the past- such as getting us out of the TPP- so this immediately puts the lie to your statement that if he passed universal healthcare I'd be against it. Whataboutism is a liberal buzzword? It has nothing to do with liberal/conservative. It's been around long before now, since back in the 1970s. Whataboutism is simply the common name for the tu quoque fallacy- you are being hypocritical because x person did the same thing or something of similar nature. Now Trump supporters have been using this fallacy for quite a long time now, "But her emails!" is a classic example. So yeah, right now the left uses it more, but that's because the right is led by a fucking liar and a lunatic who uses it himself and causes all the little cultists who support him to use it as well. Sucks when the right has to use "alternative facts" because reality is not on their side, but that's what has been going on ever since Trump won.

    Lmao. Obviously false when the dude asks on camera for Ukraine and China to investigate Biden. Sure, bud. I'm done, lol.

    I'm not walking back any statements, I know you have more intelligence than this. A 5 year old could understand there is nuance in the statement "I want our troops to come home." That does not literally mean everyone should instantly pack up their bags and come home, that's simply not a feasible way to operate in this world. Quit playing dumb. It's textbook whataboutism. "How come Trump did this crazy thing?" "How come Obama/Clinton did it?" It doesn't answer the question, it simply avoids it. Favre answers the question and adds to it. I would argue he's still not quite seeing it like I am- Trump has escalated this way beyond anything Obama did, IMO- but he at least acknowledges the issue. At some point you leave, sure. And apparently that point is right after telling our allies to get rid of their defenses so they're vulnerable to Turkey's invasion. Completely lying to our allies and leaving them to die is totally what we always do. Totally makes sense. Cmon, dude. You're just being silly at this point because you refuse to admit you're wrong here. Tell me, truthfully. The following scenario: The Kurds have defensive fortifications up to stall any Turkish attack. The US tells them, "We are trying to negotiate with Turkey. As part of negotiations, they want you guys to tear down the defenses because that way it doesn't look like you're preparing for war." And then over the past two months, they do just that. We also gave Turkey information about the airspace surrounding the region and intel on the cities. And then, the President of the US meets with the dictator of Turkey and the US troops fall back leaving the Kurds wide open to a Turkish invasion. An invasion where soldiers are being executed in the street, where political leaders are being ambushed and killed by Turkish military forces. This is scenario A. This is what happened. Versus scenario B. The US informs the Kurds they will be leaving so they need to be ready for a Turkish attack. They give them ample warning so they can rebuild the defenses they tore down as per our instructions. Perhaps we help them do so. Then we leave. And you are seriously arguing for A? I agree they need to be able to fight on their own, but we didn't give them half a chance. We sold them out to Trump's buddy. In neither scenario are US troops in grave danger. You keep talking like they were actively in harm's way. I suppose by virtue of simply being over there they are more likely than us to get hurt, but there wasn't an active invasion going on until we fell back. You also keep bringing up the soldiers that were there. Every news organization I have read about this disaster-in-progress has said the military officers and special forces that are currently there have said they are "extremely upset" "dismayed" and other similar quotes.

    When the house is on fire, the first step is putting out the fire, not figuring out why its on fire. Trump has to be removed before we can begin to figure out what the hell is going on at the top.
