You're a farking clown.

You claimed earlier today that Biden said "BSAB" (he didn't).

Yet you post nearly daily that BSAB.

"ONLY I CAN SAY THAT! HOW DARE HE"

You are literally a nutter. You are unable to disconnect yourself from your beliefs and just because you believe something does not make it a fact. You don't understand that.
What you believe is simply not true. You are on par with Trumpers.

You are unwilling to comprise, you routinely piss and moan a child's behavior that things have to be the way you envision them and no other, no compromising. That's not how anything works. Trumper.

You are part of a movement that has passed basically zero legislation, you have had no chance no fail. In addition you have this constant behavior of calling out failures, thats incredibly easy to do.

Failures do not = bad. Science fails all the time, its part of the process.

BSA not B. Thats a childs cop out and a dead giveaway in this climate that you are a moron.

From the point of view of big cities, a vote within the two-party system is just a fart in the wind vs systemic injustice.

For example: Kenosha is run by a Democratic mayor. The police chief is hired by the mayor. Just today, the police stopped a church truck filled with supplies for the BLM protesters and arrested the church members.

Portland's Democratic mayor and Police Commissioner is currently doing a BSAB dance and trying to use the shooting that happened near (But not at) the protest as an excuse to crack more skulls.

Seattle's Democratic Mayor, who was one of Obama's hires, tear gassed the city for a week straight.

Your vote is not something you present at the rose ceremony on The Bachelor - US Government. It is an act - your chance to do something that influences how the government is run, and thus how your life is going to be. You need to determine what course of action will produce the best outcome, and follow it. 

It is not an opinion poll or a popularity contest. Voting is an action, and you should act accordingly.

Are you in a safe (blue) state? Then I won't complain. But if you're in a swing state, please think hard about it. I know the Democrats suck, but sometimes you have to put up with suck, because "suck" is better than "fascist".

That said, it's your conscience and your vote, and you don't owe your vote to anyone. They have to earn it.

Additionally, the poll found that 10.1% of Trump supporters were "likely to be untruthful on phone surveys" in sharing who they support. Only 5.1% of Biden supporters said the same.

Surveyors collected answers as to why "'shy voters' are concerned about sharing their voting intentions," which elicited responses such as the fear answers would not be kept confidential, the belief that polls are biased, and a dislike of phone calls.

"I don't believe the information would be confidential, and I think it's dangerous to express an opinion outside of the current liberal viewpoint," CloudResearch reported as one response.

"Well, I probably wouldn't give my opinion period, but if pushed, I would not give my real opinion for fear of reprisal if someone found out," another said.

Yet another said, "Because most polls released to the public are slanted and aren't scientifically based. So, they are messing with the results of the survey from the beginning by knocking down one party or the other. I'm just trying to right the ship."


There is fear here. Chalk them up as big ass orange voters.

vudukungfu: If you fear reprisal for how you plan to vote, you might br living in a fascist country.

If you are in law enforcement, and use force against people asking you not to shoot them, you just might be a facist.

Man, I need to call Foxworthy's agent.

I could do a 90 minute set.


Sure... or you might work for any level of government in a country where elected officials routinely "clean house" of anyone they perceive as aligned with the other party.  Like, say, the US.

My father was a municipal employee for about thirty years, and worked for four different towns in that time.  Tax-related stuff, nothing partisan.  He and mom were frequently first in line at the polls on election day, but he never spoke publicly about politics or voting, never did anything that'd put him in the public record as supporting a candidate, and never let anyone from any party put a campaign sign in his yard... because if he did, some future mayor would have had an excuse to axe him.  In the third town he worked for, even that level of caution didn't save him - there was an election and the new mayor thought (quite possibly correctly) that the old mayor had been crooked, so everyone who had been hired by the old mayor got the axe.

My wife is now a municipal employee, and my employers do some stuff for the government, so we're almost as cautious.

misanthropicsob: DO NOT WANT Poster Girl: misanthropicsob: Biden doesn't have any feasible plan to address the root causes of the injustice. Trump doesn't either. He amplifies everything to the worst degree. But, Biden won't actually solve the problems (and, if his legislative history is any indication, he will make things worse).

I trust Biden is going to hire smart people and listen to them.  That's all I need to trust at this point.  Seriously, that's all.

I don't have that trust. Joe Biden has notoriously surrounded himself with lobbyists, especially Stephen Richetti (campaign chair and former chief of staff).

I trust Joe Biden to surround himself with the worst people at all times.

Your vote is not something you present at the rose ceremony on The Bachelor - US Government. It is an act - your chance to do something that influences how the government is run, and thus how your life is going to be. You need to determine what course of action will produce the best outcome, and follow it. 

It is not an opinion poll or a popularity contest. Voting is an action, and you should act accordingly.


It is completely a popularity contest, it always has been.

\at least, in places where the vote hasn't been predetermined

So you don't know history. Trotsky was the "good guy" in the Russian revolution, and was purged by Stalin.

I'm an independent b/c Dems aren't liberal enough for me but a vote outside the two party system right now is a fart in the wind vs human injustice.

"The ship hit an iceberg and is sinking! Man the lifeboats!"
"That lifeboat is old and might sink. I'll just take my chances with drowning."

From the point of view of big cities, a vote within the two-party system is just a fart in the wind vs systemic injustice.

For example: Kenosha is run by a Democratic mayor. The police chief is hired by the mayor. Just today, the police stopped a church truck filled with supplies for the BLM protesters and arrested the church members.

Portland's Democratic mayor and Police Commissioner is currently doing a BSAB dance and trying to use the shooting that happened near (But not at) the protest as an excuse to crack more skulls.

Seattle's Democratic Mayor, who was one of Obama's hires, tear gassed the city for a week straight.

Biden doesn't have any feasible plan to address the root causes of the injustice. Trump doesn't either. He amplifies everything to the worst degree. But, Biden won't actually solve the problems (and, if his legislative history is any indication, he will make things worse).


I don't expect Biden to do anything about racial injustice. What I do expect him to do is a) at least pay lip-service to global warming, and b) protect a woman's right to abortion. And given the next president will be Trump or Biden, that means I'm voting for Biden.

\not that I expect him to win, Trump's made it clear he's going to steal the election.

You could TRY voting for someone you have actual respect for, as though you cared about America. Or, if you can't wrestle up the courage to do that, feel free to just not vote for the person who has undone decades of progress with his ineptitude and evil he surrounds himself with.

Destroying America will not bring the Rapture. God does not exist, and if he did, he's never cared about America.

Anyone who hasn't spoken in favor of Biden by now is a Trumper. Some of those who have spoken in favor of Biden are Trumpers who just enjoy lying.

I'm having trouble imagining going on surrounded by human-shaped filth and never knowing which is which. What if I accidentally help one of them or greet one as I might a person? Disgusting.

The way that TFA is slanted, I don't think those "shy voters" exist.  "Underreported" poll numbers for Trump, my ass. 

"Wow...these polls certainly are hella blue...Friggin' landslide."

"Trump isn't gonna like that.  Can't just toss those poll numbers out though, so...ummm....divide the blue down to narrow the margin between Tump's numbers and theirs and we'll just mark the trimmed down as 'shy voters, who didn't want to say' but that might be voting for Trump, as far as he knows.  Maybe that sort of ass-kissing will keep us in press conferences a bit longer."

"But isn't that unethical?"

"Dude, this is 2020.  Not even the friggin' Cub Scouts are ethical any more.  Tell your conscience to STFU and start re-working those numbers, dammit."

Dude you go out of your way to be an asshole here and then claim that you are being harassed when really it's just people telling you to stop being such an asshole.


Dude, what you consider "being an asshole" is actually normal criticism of the candidate. For instance, my stating that "Nancy Pelosi funded Trump's concentration camps without congressional oversight" in a thread about Trump's concentration camps is not "being an asshole," but pointing out that Democrats had a chance to stop Trump but dropped the ball.

Or, in tonight's episode, Biden made a statement condemning violence "of every kind by anyone, whether on the left or right." I pointed out the BSAB nature of this statement, a tone that echoed the "I'm sure there were fine people on both sides" Trumpism after Charlottesville, and noted that Biden went after Trump for the rest of the statement instead of addressing the root causes of the unrest and failing to bring the white suburbanite onto the side of the protests. And I contrasted that with LBJ addressing violence during the civil rights movement, where he briefly condemned the violence then used the protests to attack the root causes - historic civil injustice and promises unkept. LBJ sounded more presidential (and, frankly, less racist) than Biden and that was 60 years ago. That's not "being an asshole." That's pointing out how far we've regressed in the past 30 years.

What you consider "being an asshole" is actually just "not being a neoliberal Democrat who blindly follows the party wherever it may go."

HairBolus: Jeez. I think the Q in QAnon stands for Queer. The Anon part means that they don't want to be publicly identified. QAnon is not a group fighting for Queer rights or liberation - they enjoy being privately degraded and humiliated for their sexual deviances but then ultimately surrendered to. They want a bigoted world where the wowsers turn to them for clandestine gratifications.

This theory is simpler and makes more sense than the infinite smokescreen conspiracy theories QAnon spins to hide their true inclinations and purposes.

Only a small fraction of Queers are QAnoners  but the core of QAnon is full of masochistic Queer whores.
