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

    I'm having a hard time thinking of a character/actor who left such a giant impression based on (relatively) little screen time.

    Oh, censorship is definitely a part of the Trump administration.  But the net neutrality thing is not just about or even primarily about censorship. 
    A possible irony is that right-wingers who support this - and there aren't many, 83% of all Americans are in favour of NN - might be the ones who suffer the most in terms of censorship.  If the corporate-practices policies of companies like Comcast, Time-Warner etc get applied to the internet it's the far-right websites that are most likely to be targeted.

    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.

    Also who are like the 8% of Black Moore voters? Like I get why the white people turned out for Moore in mass and I guess there’ll always be some percentage of a demographic which splits from the rest but like what about Roy Moore atracts any percent of African Americans?

    Wealthier people who care more about a tax cut than pedophilia.
