  • Anti-Pseudoscience Thread!

    I always get crapped on from my fellow lefties when I say this, but the anti-GMO stuff belongs on that list too.  The same science that tells us that global warming is real, also tells us that GMO wheat is a perfectly safe thing to make your bread and pasta from.

    Can someone translate the Trump tweet this morning regarding Kirsten Gillibrand for me?  Anxious to see the impression of the Pacific Northwest Libertarian types.
    Pretty much insinuating like a 5 year old that she's a turn coat and when she came to him for campaign contributions she was willing to undermine her integrity. However, since the individual tweeting is also the same person who thinks grabbing a woman between the legs is a proper pick up technique, I wouldn't be surprised if he was trying to say she'd even provide sexual favors for campaign contributions. Like I said, a 5 year old. 

    “They let you”


    let1
    let/
    verb
    1. 1
      not prevent or forbid; allow.
      "my boss let me leave early"
      synonyms:allow to, permit to, give permission to, give leave to, authorize to, sanction to, grant the right to, license to, empower to, enable to, entitle 

    Well if a woman “lets” you do something how is it improper? nothing in the definition of let implies impropriety. 

    He was criticisizing Gillibrand because she’s sought donations from him in the past, any implication of sexual favors is your inference, it’s not in the language of what was said 
    Let's see, if I walk  up to you and apropos of nothing, suddenly punch you in the face, and you don't kill me right afterwards, does that mean you "let" me do it? because I feel that's about as much consent that Trump theoretically received in these incidents.

    I'm also surprised to hear you defending this side of Trump. I had the idea  you were more personally conservative with behavior stuff, what with all your extra shirts and all. Maybe that's a leap.

    I don’t believe the video is in and of itself a confession to sexual assault as many make it out to be.

    I don't think it's fair to call him a troll BTW.  We've dealt with actual trolls who were clearly posting crazy things to get a reaction, spitting out alt-right non-sense etc. 

    While Em's posts often get a strong reaction I don't believe that he's posting with the intended purpose of pissing everyone off...he might know that it will piss some people off, but I don't think that's his intent.  I think he wants to share his side's view of things, again which I passionately disagree with 99 out of 100, but I do think that he's sharing with some degree of sincerity.

    And he likes a good argument too :)

    Has anyone here watched the video of the Daniel Shaver shooting that was released earlier today? It is absolutely horrifying. I know that sanctioned police brutality is, infuriatingly, nothing new, but what can we do? Genuinely asking. Trump's rally tonight was more disturbing than usual -- shades of Mussolini only way more stupid -- are we heading towards massive riots and possibly worse? I'm feeling a little helpless now.

    I'm at a loss to offer any insight into either, but as for feeling helpless - you're not, and you're not alone.

    Hopefully Franken's fall sends a message at least to Democratic politicians
    I'm just in a very dark place right now with this stuff. I am sure Doug Jones is a fine upstanding citizen. All I know about him is "not a rapist" so I can't help but add to myself "that we know of." Cause that's 2017.
    At this point please let Tom Hanks, Sam Jackson and Forest Whitaker be clean.
    I swear to god, the other night I was watching Fixer Upper, and I thought "Chip Gaines, you better not be up to any dirty business" and then I got really depressed, LMAO. 
    Don't tell my girlfriend, but I watch that show with her because I have a crush on his wife :)

    Some agent gives her $50 or whatever and it's the crime of the century.  Sheldon Adelson donates $90 million to Trump have Jerusalem recognized as Israel's Capital causing at least a few deaths and a predictable wave of terrorism to come - no biggie.

    I have a prediction about why Trump (now) supports getting rid of net neutrality....
