The fact that Trump can go anywhere without being cursed at is a testament to how often we give too much respect to assholes and despots who don't deserve. The only thing that would've made me prouder of the area that I live in is if they had started an "ASSHOLE" or "FUCK YOU TRUMP" chant.

David, I wish to register a complaint. You’ve filed this story to Politics, but this is erroneous, as this is clearly a Sports Story. Read more

Hey, let’s talk about how G/O media are such gutless scum that they took down all of the posts across the kinjaverse about how awful the autoplaying videos are and how to contact the ownership about it. Read more

Fuck that. Both him and his running mate had no problem fear mongering all day every day about Obama during that campaign. He fed directly into the mindset that led to people saying crazy shit where he then had to “defend” Obama. I’m not sure anything led the right wing fear machine that led to Trump as much as that Read more

I got into a whole thing the other day with someone on here who defended McCain as a “vociferous opponent of Trump,” then when I posted the link to the same FiveThirtyEight article in Blest’s post demonstrating McCain’s 80%+ voting record along Trump lines, took the argument elsewhere entirely. McCain occasionally Read more

Actually he insulted Arabs by association when he stated that Obama was a “decent man” (and not an Arab) and you don’t get credit for telling a crazy person they’re wrong. Sorry.

I get that and support you but at the same time. You don’t get awards or medals for being a f-ing decent human being. You just are and you push to make the world decent. Read more

That’s ridiculous McCain spent months using dog whistles would would bring the lady to say what she did. And continued to do it long after. The only thing he was truly admonishing his voters for was saying it so direct, something he was always afraid to do. McCain was as nearly devoted to ‘decorum’ as Obama was, only Read more

I get that it would have been easy for him to not challenge that question, and that a lot of the company he willingly chose to keep, align himself with, select as a running mate, and vote as a bloc with for the entire rest of his career would’ve taken it and run with it.

But here’s the thing. His response to that Read more

And the answer is always, “We want it done fast AND right.” Which shows how truly stupid most people in management are.

Totally this. What I’ve learned being single for a long time while a “catch,” and talking to a lot of friends about their relationships: 1) A lot of people are terrified of being alone, or deviating from norms, and accept a fair amount of misery in exchange for some creature comfort. 2) Forming lasting relationships Read more

This comment is the perfect response to the title of this post. I immediately found myself questioning why other women (mostly I assume) basically told the author all the changes she had to make to ‘get a guy’. I’m actually impressed that she has been so positive in this response as I remember a nasty comment to her Read more

Back in the olden days before cell phones and interwebs you could go out with someone, even more than once, and because things were slower, communication less instant and constant, getting ghosted was less painful. Answering machines were wonky, roommates flaky with messages, numbers juxtaposed, rejection was just Read more
