ox45tallboy: BDR459: ox45tallboy: This assshair made his living buying companies and looting their pension funds for his own pocket and tossing the employees to the street to live off the government teat. Fark his sense of morality.

Having said that, I'm reminded of Eddie Valentine (Paul Sorvino) from The Rocketeer:

[rocketeerminute.com image 850x361]

"It matters to me. I may not make an honest buck, but I'm 100% American. I don't work for no two-bit Nazi."

That, and I think many are starting to realize that Fascism is just as much of a threat to Capitalism as it is to Democratic Socialism.

I think I've seen you in the maddow daily threads. Is there a weekend thread? I can't seem to locate it.

/ignore this if I'm mistaken
//if I am. I apologize
///three because I can

I'm in the Maddow threads a bit.

I did post something similar to this on the Twatter earlier.


Thanks. I can't find it for nothing. Guess I'll wait till tomorrows thread.

Bith Set Me Up: Naido: scottydoesntknow: Ken S.: I know all you purity people will hate this but I think it is great. If he actually took a moral stand and seriously endorsed Biden I think Utah could flip. Trump is only 3 points ahead of Biden in the latest polling there and most everyone in Utah hates Trump. Mormons, unlike some other forms of Chritianity today actually have an underlying ethical and moral underpinning.

Mittens was the only "republican" willing to vote to have Trump removed. He's essentially an independent now. Only reason he hasn't been excommunicated by them is because he holds a lot of sway in Utah.

It's no longer Republican v Democrat. It's America v Trumpland. I'll never forget how most of the Republican Party sold their soul for Trump, and will be happy to remind them, but anyone willing to publicly break away and sway a few more votes is someone I'll take right now. My enemy's enemy, and Trump has made a lot of enemies among the Republican Party.

The W supporters who used to accuse you of hating god, the country and your mother any time you disagreed with them?  They almost immediately rebranded themselves as tea partiers and acted as if they'd opposed those ideas the entire time.

The Trump fans are going to try to pull something similar.  I just hope they don't get away with it, as they did in 2010, and come back into power almost immediately.

Jennifer Rubin, MSNBC's favorite "Never Trumper", wanted arbitrary bans against Muslims long before Trump got the taste for them. In 2011, after the terrorist attacks in Norway, she wanted an immediate ban against Muslims. And even after it was discovered that the perp was an anti-Muslim Christian extremist, she still wanted a ban against Muslims because reasons.

"Never Trump" conservatives are nobody's allies. They're people who want all the shiat Trump brings to the table, but don't want the "Trump" label attached to it.

Trainspotr: Speaking of 2012 failures, expect Paul Ryan to emerge from his CrossFit chrysalis at some point in Biden's first year. Maybe he'll challenge Johnson for the Senate seat in 2022, maybe he'll parlay his Fox News board position into an on-air gig. He seems to have gotten out just in time to avoid the worst of Trump's stink on him. He'll be 54 in 2024, and I'm sure he's going to make a run at the GOP nomination.


Depends on how it all shakes out, though I expect him to take a run at Governor in 2022 to set himself up for 2024 or 2028.

AAAAGGGGHHHH: KonaDude: My dad, a Vietnam vet and a life long liberal, always told me the civil rights protests in the 60s became truly empowered once older white guys in ties starting marching with the protesters. Is that good? Probably not, but it always stuck with me, and I couldn't help think about it when I saw this.

Yep. When Nixon saw that he even lost the Hard Hats after what happened at Kent State, he knew it was Game Over.


That's a nice story, but most Americans supported the actions of the NG at Kent State.

Yeah, really: https://www.newspapers.com/cl​ip/135981​12/campus-unrest-linked-to-drugs/ (Look at the polling where nearly 60% of those polls blamed the students for the shooting.)

That supported was evidence by the fact that Nixon trounced McGovern in '72, two years after the massacre.

Older Americans quickly came to oppose the Vietnam War (polls showed more strongly than did young people). However, they never accepted the protest tactics used by young radicals and often opposed the war but, at the same time, supported oppressive actions by the police.

It's depressing.

Kick The Chair: Mikey1969: Kick The Chair: Are Mormons the ones who's God changed his mind about black people?

Church leaders taught that these restrictions were commanded by God. In 1978, the First Presidency and the Quorum of the Twelve, led by church president Spencer W. Kimball, declared they had received a revelation that the time had come to end these restrictions. After this revelation, people of African descent could hold priesthood offices and could be granted temple admittance.

Yeah, among other religions. Unless you think that racism only arrived with the invention of Mormonism in the mid-1800s. The real difference between the evolution of the Mormon religion and the other mainstream religions is that its so young. All of the rest were "commanded by God" to not be racist, they just did it hundreds of years ago, usually after they'd been doing it for hundreds of years.

Big farking deal, they saw the errors of their ways, 42 years ago. Move the fark on.

Actually, I realized the truly significant thing about this, just in case people really think he's doing this just for a photo op.

It's Sunday.

The Mormon "rest on the Sabbath" thing even means that they aren't supposed to go to the grocery store. When they're not at church, they're supposed to be at home with family, not working in any way. It's why you see so many businesses closed on Sunday here, it's not just because the owners or clients are Mormon, some places just don't see the business when a large chunk of your customers aren't allowed to patronize your business one day of the week.

Yet, Mitt decided that it was worth a potential "talking to" by church leadership.

And the Independent got just a bit less than that. If Romney and the leadership of the Mormon church endorses Biden dumpy wouldn't have a chance here.

I personally don't like Romney. The way he cut off his staff from the campaign credit cards leaving them stranded. The way he purchased all those fireworks assuming he was going to win. His past in destroying companies to make a dime like the dude in Pretty Woman. Strapping the damn dog to the car roof. Come on, who does that?

Maybe he has been doing some extra praying/soul searching. I'll never vote for him for any position, especially county dog catcher, but I'll give him props if he makes steps to turn Utah blue for even one election. Utah actually was blue not all that long ago, before I transplanted myself here. Maybe in time we will swing blue and stay there.

Mormons aren't supposed to work on Sunday. They can recreate. They also have a policy of "some tasks need to be done on Sundays, and it isn't fair to non-mormons and coworkers to force them all to carry the burden on this days"

Which is where the no-shopping part comes in: shopping on Sundays encouraged more businesses to be open on them, thus influences more people to disregard the Sabbath.

Afaik, and my internetting backs up what my mormon co-workers tell me, the decision is largely up to the individual, and Mormons are allowed to balance their own needs against the guideline.

Of course, a public figure like Romney might well be told he's supposed to set a better example.

Trump probably lost some of them when he waved "a Bible" around as a prop in front of a church. Yes, they should never have supported him. But I'll take what I can get right now, especially if it also does cost the Republicans the Senate.

Which I gotta say I really respect the no-shopping bit.

As a former waiter it was infuriating when some of the more religious folk would tell me I shouldn't be working on Sundays. They just assumed I was Christian, of course. There was one awesome group religious people who never judged, weren't all snippy, and were pretty progressive (I'd overhear them talking about civil rights and being on the correct side of it). Still a mediocre tip but friendly as hell.

He's not going to endorse Biden.  He's going to challenge Trump at the convention.  Too many high-up Republicans are looking for ways to not vote for Trump - they would sure as shiat vote for Romney, and I will lay good odds there is a huge amount of backroom talk going on about it right now.

It won't work, of course - he'll end up damaging Trump, Trump will get nominated, the Base will vote Trump and some people might write in Romney... but the best he will do is lower Trump's votes in November.  Which is a worthwhile endeavor in and of itself.

Aetre: ...Wait. Mitt Romney has a spine now? (I mean, I know he voted to convict, but I thought that was just him drawing the short straw. This seems actually voluntary.)


It's never too late to grow one.  It just becomes wtf? took so long?

Xythero: Dewey Fidalgo: The Mormons have a very racist past.

Don't we all.


There is a saying. There always is.

Nobody comes to the table with clean hands.

History is a baitch.
It's how we deal with her in the here and now that is at issue.

null: So we're looking at the possibility of Texas and Utah going blue on Election Night?


I was at a area march here in west Houston today.  About 500 people.  I spotted a former GOP precinct captain and the HS football coach, among many others.

Ken S.: Mormons, unlike some other forms of Chritianity today actually have an underlying ethical and moral underpinning.


It's called Polygamy.

Yeah, I can pretend to be somebody I'm not for personal gain too, Mr Romney.

I hereby demand that I be given a Fark account: Aetre: ...Wait. Mitt Romney has a spine now? (I mean, I know he voted to convict, but I thought that was just him drawing the short straw. This seems actually voluntary.)

He voted to convict because there was no chance of conviction. Had he been the deciding vote? No way he'd risk the backlash.

He's a coward, like every other republican.


I know you go to the maddow daily thread. Is there a weekend thread?

He's not the total piece of shiat I thought him to be. Only mostly shiat, but goddamn it, credit where credit is due. Really holds up our ideals as Americans, the dollar is first but then Nazi scum need to fark off.
