This is quite true when it comes to residents but California can really be separated out into residents and corporations. Many corporations are oh so happy with what the republicans do for them, or in many cases what they prevent the democrats from doing. Our poor labor laws benefit many silicon valley startups quite happily. Hell Uber's entire businessmodel hinges on the idea that none of their drivers work 'for them' and thus don't get the same rights and considerations as people who do.

Even when the republican party is doing things they don't like, this large economy sitting mostly in the hands of corporations does what lots of money does to lots of people, like that Kanye West fella, it insulates and corporations see this more as weathering a stupid storm than any reason to truely revolt.

As far as general residents, then yes, we really should question why we keep giving money to these states that then bully us around, make us the enemy and go against their own stated beliefs of states rights when it suits them.

Ironically, this is pretty much the only claim you make that isn't a blatant lie. The Man has called the NYT the Vichy NYT, sure. This is, of course, a subjective judgment of whether their coverage is too soft on him. Much like it was a subjective judgment that "the resistance" (and presumably I, as the starter of that thread) were the equivalent of "Petainists". I didn't see you complaining about that one, of course.

We see it in the claim that The Times, and other news outlets, should not have done their duty-bound job and reported the news
This is a lie.
Quote:
incredibly, the claim that news outlets should not have reported Comey’s announcement that he was reopening the Clinton e-mail probe
This is indeed incredible, because it is not believable, because it did not happen and is a lie.

There is a reason davidm won't be quoting me saying that.
Quote:
should not have reported that Rosenstein talked about wearing a wire while talking to Trump
This is also inaccurate but I'm willing to extend the benefit of the doubt that davidm is just being uncharitable rather than blatantly lying (since he has been corrected multiple times on the prior claim, so he ought to know it is definitely a lie). The criticism was about the content and manner of their reporting, not whether it would be newsworthy at all.
Quote:
the implicit and breathtaking claim that everything, everywhere, should be based on an empire of lies.
This is an amazing level of projection.
Quote:
The minority vote is now enshrined on the Supreme Court with two justices appointed by this filthy monster in the White House, the second of whom is beyond the pale for reasons not even worth rehashing.
See, now, I'm not going to passive-aggressively reference your past arguments, or mischaracterize what you said. I will directly quote you, because I'm not a liar projecting accusations of dishonesty.

You seem to wildly swing from thinking Trump was possibly (probably?) not as bad as Clinton, to using the fact of her popular vote victory being paired with Trump's election now meaning our only viable response is secession and, the very probable result of that, civil war and massive economic dislocation.

Trump sends racist tweet about Andrew Gillum, Democratic gubernatorial candidate in Florida – ThinkProgress

From the Twit in Chief
Quote:
“In Florida there is a choice between a Harvard/Yale educated man named @RonDeSantisFL who has been a great Congressman and will be a great Governor – and a Dem who is a thief and who is Mayor of poorly run Tallahassee, said to be one of the most corrupt cities in the Country!” Trump tweeted, alluding to Gillum, who is running to become the first black governor in Florida’s history.
A Gillum win would be so :D.

From the link -
Quote:
Gillum is an alum of Florida A&M, a highly-rated historically black college and university. Despite what Trump would have you believe, Gillum has never been convicted of a crime.

Catch me up on this. A Mueller smear was suspected, then confirmed, and outed as a baseless smear before it went anywhere?

That is the gist of it, but the details are so much funnier. Like amazingly stupid as motherfuckers funny :lol:

Some highlights:

Jacob Wohl (hipster coffee shop dude from Twitter, MAGA asshat) claims to have nothing to do with Surefire ('company' involved in the Mueller smear attempt). Turns out he forgot he used his name on the site registration. Patton Oswalt on Twitter: "(Jacob’s name is LITERALLY on the registration for the fake website for the fake company that is making these claims)… https://t.co/8R3ZIoqX2s"

Also turns out a phone number for Surefire redirects to a voicemail account registered to his mom.
Surefire's 'employee' pictures turn out to be various models from stock photos... and Christopher Waltz :lol: And Sigourney Weaver's husband.

Pictures of 'Matthew Cohen' the Managing Partner at Surefire are spitting image of Jacob.

This looks like a decent breakdown - Attention Required! | Cloudflare

RPG.net bans vocal support of Donald Trump.

New Ban: Do Not Post In Support of Trump or his Administration

Pull quote:
Quote:
We are banning support of Donald Trump or his administration on the RPGnet forums. This is because his public comments, policies, and the makeup of his administration are so wholly incompatible with our values that formal political neutrality is not tenable. We can be welcoming to (for example) persons of every ethnicity who want to talk about games, or we can allow support for open white supremacy. Not both.
Not suggesting that policy for this very differently focused forum, but they put a lot of thought into what's right for inclusiveness in a games forum.

It's not about doing things well ... it's about the millions who'll just think well I never liked Mueller you never know there's probably something to it I don't know who to trust any more I'll just trust a TV game-show host

It was a term coined by ZEZE I believe. It applies to some nebulous definition of the Thanks-ing mob around here.

I'm not sure exactly when it started, but it's been somewhat discussed around these parts.
