I think a lot of people are scrambling right now

To figure out how they can continue to engage in the sorts of disruptive crap they have come to love, enjoy, and depend upon to entertain themselves, under the new system.

It's a testament to the brains of the admins, that they have made it so difficult for that crowd.

Lol.

She was also another punk rocker i was in the process of slowly turning on to the Dead

Or, at least trying to with the rare occasional success.


I think she would appreciate this one.

What your post reminds me of:

I've learned from long experience that commenting on what people choose to get outraged over, here

invariably turns into another outrage, and before you know it you are stuck in an outrage feedback loop.

So I'm just going to line my helmet with cottage cheese and go back to bed.

"ill-advised pointless primary run." Are you kidding? Do you know what would've happened if Hillary

had had no real competition and put this thing away in January?

She would have spent the past 4 months iterating through different meaningless poll-tested blather about Middle Class Champions™ and The American People Deserve A Break Today™ because She's The Real Thing™ etc etc etc and the entire country would have gone





You think Trump has enjoyed a disproportionate amount of media attention now, it would have been fifty trillion times worse without Sanders and his "ill-advised pointless primary run" making the Democratic contest actually ABOUT STUFF.

Are the primaries over?

No, they're not.

So stop trying to conflate debate within the Democratic party between supporters of differenent candidates for the Democratic nomination, with support for the Republican.

"shouting fire in a crowded theater" is perhaps the most torturously overused metaphor in existence

and it's also incorrect.

http://www.theatlantic.com/national/archive/2012/11/its-time-to-stop-using-the-fire-in-a-crowded-theater-quote/264449/

Oliver Wendell Holmes made the analogy during a controversial Supreme Court case that was overturned more than 40 years ago.


So let me flip it back on you, with the point I was making originally that you responded to- do you think it should be illegal for people to draw "blasphemous" cartoons?

A rant like that deserves its own hat.

That 18 trillion number is bullshit. Widely debunked.

The fact of the matter is it is disingenuous- to say the least- to claim that "18 trillion of free stuff" which includes suppsedly 17 trillion in health care spending, is somehow a logical asssement of the proposal when it negates the fact that a single payer plan would eliminate not just the overhead of the private insurance industry (estimated in some cases as up to 20% on top of the other costs) but would also take peoples' insurance premiums out of the equation entirely.

But according to the CDC, total health spending in the US is 3 Trillion dollars, more or less. So to believe this "17 trillion" bullshit, you would have to imagine that putting everyone in the country under a single payer plan would magically multiply total spending on health care costs by nearly SIX FUCKING TIMES.

health care isnt like grass-fed beef. People dont run out and get extra triple bypasses that they dont need just because now they can afford it. And if total spending would go up, what that means is there are a lot of people who ARENT getting the care they need, under the current arrangement.


But my main point is, "FREE STUFF WARRRRGGHHHBLLLLLL" is a boilerplate right wing meme, chief.
