It sounds to me like she says "I don't believe the numbers".

It's still infuriating, but not as whack job.

I listened to it over and over until I either convinced myself it was “in” or that’s what she said. Easily a mouth typo tho from the pressure of being on camera and defensive.

After the break, Goldberg gave Haines a chance to read this quote from Barrett that she found so disturbing for blurring the line between church and state: “A legal career is but a means to an end… and that end is building the Kingdom of God.”

In response, McCain said, “There seems to be a real bias against a woman who has seven children and is Catholic. And I just don’t want her to be Kavanaugh’d, because I don’t think it’s fair.”
Well, Meghan, unless Barrett has a history of rape, it's unlikely she will be Kavanaughed.

She also said this

Quote:
As for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, she added, “I hear what you guys are saying about hypocrisy and I hear it and receive it, but he is someone who only cares about this. This is, like, his core issue. He does not want to run for president, he doesn’t want to seek higher office, and if everyone thinks he hasn’t been preparing for this exact scenario, I think they’re just a little naive. No disrespect to anyone who thought that.”
So it was everybody else's fault other than the lying hypocrite.

offense taken you stupid motherfucker.

Oh, don't worry about the doddering old senator shitting his pants twice a day. That's just his thing. We just let people do their thing because it's their thing, irrespective of any semblance of truth or honesty or integrity or decency.

Science is just a theory. :ffconf:
We had this homeschooled idiot on our team and one day some of us were talking about the Theory of Relativity, and this guy loudly interrupted us to announce that "It's just a theory!". We just all got quiet. I mean, how do you respond to that. Buy him a plane ticket to Hiroshima and let him go debate them?

Transgender Satanist anarchist wins Republican country sheriff primary

So basically the normal GOP guy didn't run this time (the Dems have won the last 5 times) and a former registered Libertarian woman swooped in at the last minute and entered the primary for the GOP position and won because no one had a clue who they were voting for and didn't bother to check. I sort of want her to beat the Dem now :lol:

Quote:
DiMezzo wrote: “I went into it expecting that I would lose the primary to a write-in candidate, because I didn’t think that so many voters were just… completely and totally oblivious about who they are voting for.
Quote:
“Because the fact is that you didn’t bother. You trusted the system. You trusted the establishment. You trusted the party. You felt safe.

“You were sure that there must be some mechanisms in place to prevent from occurring exactly what just occurred.

“Your anger is misplaced if you direct it at me. Please listen. Your anger is with the system that has lied to you. Your anger is with the system that convinced you to believe in it, trust in it, and have faith in it, when it is completely and utterly broken.

“More than 4,000 people went into the voting booth on September 8 this week, and they all filled in the circle by my name despite knowing absolutely nothing about the person they were nominating to the most powerful law enforcement position in the county.

“That’s a level of recklessness of which any decent human being should be ashamed.”

I mean, Republican and libertarian are pretty serious negatives, but I've only heard good things about Satanism in the USA, and +1 for transgender. But overall, +100 for showing up the stupidity of the sheeple.

They did recognize asexuality as a valid sexual orientation, long before almost anybody else. The Satanists I've met in the USA have been pretty laid back -- Rand-ish in some ways, but without the enormous stick up the butt (unless you're into that sort of thing, of course).

There are two major factions of Satanists in the US. The older, LaVeyan one is the Satanic Church; and the newer one is the Satanic Temple. They both endorse doing what makes you happy as long as it's not at the expense of others, but the LaVeyans are more actively Satanic and lean pretty objectivist at times. The Satanic Temple is explicitly about social justice.
