Re: Trump in trouble?

Greetings,

One step at a time... if we paid attention to all the "unsubstantiated reports" pertaining to Barack Obama, he'd have been impeached ten times over.

Greetings,

Mkoll wrote:Automation and its (future) effects on the economy and our lives is an interesting and important topic, well-deserving of its own thread. Perhaps a mod can move this conversation to a new home.

Done. Thanks for the suggestion.

Re: Why Leftists have become so dull

Greetings BV, To be so self-assured in the moral superiority of one's views that one doesn't feel the need to listen to, engage with, or even tolerate the existence of conflicting perspectives, is why we hear a rise in the use of the term "elitists" in recent times. That's what happens whe...

Rob Schneider's Paella and the Mortal Sin of Cultural Appropriation

Greetings, Despite being related, I didn't want to derail the present conversation on Why Leftists have become so dull , so I thought this might be better placed in its own topic...

Re: Why Leftists have become so dull

Greetings BV, Let me ask you... a few months ago, there was the so-called "Burkini" ban in my country. Do you think that was appropriate? Does it amount to islamophobia? No, I don't think it was appropriate. However, I can see that it's easier (though less effective in the long-term) to pl...

Re: Why Leftists have become so dull

Greetings BV, As above, I'd rather not focus on the numbers as that would just be guesswork on my part... But as I explicitly said "some", you certainly should not conclude I said "all". However, when ad-hominem buzzwords and smears like "Islamophobe" are tossed about l...

Re: Why Leftists have become so dull

Greetings BV, I have not seen any "unconditional tolerance of such ideological beliefs" anywhere in mainstream media, nor on the internet, even less so in real life. Perhaps I have not been paying attention. In that case, perhaps you can provide evidence that your assumption is in fact cor...

Re: Why Leftists have become so dull

Greetings, ...And given the amount of things fobbed off in recent topics as "nonsense", some on the left might continue to be shocked and bewildered when their party's candidates don't dominate elections in the way they expected them to. Unless the left wants to see the pendulum swing furt...

Re: Why Leftists have become so dull

Greetings, Think about it - that you would post such nonsense what does it say about you? So, you have no interest in expanding upon your argument, then?... just doubling down on your dull, repetitive and fallacious ad-hominems. If you cannot see that there's an inherent conflict between the classic...

Re: Why Leftists have become so dull

Greetings, Having a peace sign on one's car and then voting for someone who gets into pointless wars is hypocrisy IMHO. To a point perhaps, but moreover it's not the voters fault that there's no one person or party whose platform is in 100% alignment with their own preferred policy agenda. People wi...
