No it's better to endlessly investigate Democrats (one in particular) and their non-issues.

I've been referring to Trump as a "literal murderer" with regard to Yemen. Some of the reactions are priceless.

I actually know some and stay in contact, for reasons. And although the priorities seem odd, even moronic in some cases, active malevolence doesn't seem to be a theme. Self-centeredness, yes.

Talk about your "triggered snowflakes". (newish conservative epithet for liberals)

Survey: white evangelicals think Christians face more discrimination than Muslims - Vox
Quote:
A new survey of 2,000 US adults, conducted in February by the Public Religion Research Institute (PRRI), suggested that white evangelicals think Christians face more discrimination than Muslims. The poll found that 57 percent of white evangelical Protestants said that Christians face “a lot of discrimination” in the US today, while just 44 percent said the same of Muslims. White evangelicals were the only major Christian denomination to as a group indicate that Christians face more discrimination than Muslims.

Of course they think that.

They tend to believe that any law that allows the expression of views they don't like is discriminating against Christians.

Yes that is a huge fucking brush I just used.

I've heard plenty of Fundamentalist Christians insist that they're being "persecuted" because the laws of the land somewhat limit their "right" to force their views upon others.

Quote:
persecution [pur-si-kyoo-shuh n] noun
1. the act of persecuting.
2. the state of being persecuted.
3. a program or campaign to exterminate, drive away, or subjugate people based on their membership in a religious, ethnic, social, or racial group:
the persecutions of Christians by the Romans.
But if that is what they insist, they really do not know what the word "persecution" means, their warped world view notwithstanding.

Hence whatever they believe, they are saying really stupid shit. :yup:

It's pretty much a staple of white christian america, being as the pilgrims came over here so that they could persecute in ways not allowed in England and that got turned around into 'escaping persecution' because they could now flog someone for dancing or the many other completely strange shariaesque laws they followed.

Part of why the English ultimately revoked the Puritan's charter for the Mass Bay Colony and for Plymouth, and created the Province of Massachusetts Bay a new royal colony out of the two, in 1691.

Shariaesque is a quite appropo description, imho.

Just in case anyone missed this story in the NYT today:

Cookies are Not Accepted - New York Times

As to why it needs to be in this thread:

Quote:
“We’re asking the Legislature to repeal a law that’s been on the books for over a century, that’s been working without difficulty, on the basis of a request from a minor doing a Girl Scout project,” scoffed one state representative, David Bates. In March the Republican-led House voted to kill the bill, leaving the minimum age at 13. (Legislators seem willing to marry off girls like Cassandra, but not to listen to them!)
The Republicans sure do love them some pedophiles.

Rick "Two-Sheds" Perry is at it again.



Quote:
Secretary of Energy Rick Perry was roundly mocked on Twitter on Thursday for his definition of supply-and-demand economics, which he gave during a visit to a coal-fired power plant in Morgantown, W.Va.

“Here’s a little economics lesson: supply and demand,” Perry said, according to reports. “You put the supply out there, and the demand will follow.”

It's slightly less precedented when it's your own party doing the obstruction. Or conversely, the obstructionist party (the same one) continues to be obstructionist when in power.

"unprecedented obstructionism"

Where the fuck have you been the last 8 years Mitch?

Any roadblocks the Democrats have thrown up on the health care bill, pale in comparison to the Republican opposition to any and all Obama White House initiatives. Shit members of your own party are obstructing the bill more than the Democrats.

You wrote this bill in secret without any hint of bipartisan cooperation and you can't even sell it to your own party. Since the bill has not come to a vote, and the Democrats had no input into its content, just how the fuck are they obstructing passing of this bill?

He means it's unprecedented for Democrats to be this obstructionist, obviously.

There's a precedent for Republicans, but obviously we can't expect Republicans to play by the same rules as Democrats, that's unfair because then Democrats might win.

Congressman asks scientists if they’ve found ancient civilizations on Mars | Ars Technica

Quote:
The hearing was respectable, with on-point witnesses and mostly incisive questions. That is, until California Republican Dana Rohrabacher had his turn at the microphone. After asking a reasonable, if rambling, question about NASA's plans for a Mars sample return mission and the kind of fuel used by spacecraft, Rohrabacher got down to business.

He asked, "You have indicated that Mars was totally different thousands of years ago. Is it possible that there was a civilization on Mars thousands of years ago?"
