    The irony is that if the Republicans had superdelegates, they may have been able to prevent Trump.
    And thus would’ve lost the election.

    Since Trump is not a racist or a fascist, Trump is a market conservative and thus cannot be a fascist by definition, and the only gold star family he attacked were people who had directly criticized him, and used their status as a gold star family to criticize him on issues unrelated to that status. Perhaps the wrong way about it, but you can’t level allegations on someone in public and be upset You get a response. 

    Trump is a racist.
    Can we get your definition of racist? Last time I checked he wasn’t spitting out racist verbiage at people, or passing jim crow laws or say he hates colored folks. Please site specific examples and not use emotional arguments. Seriously am curious...
    Do you think the term "racist" should be limited in using it exclusively for people who drop n-bombs and make overt declarations of hate?




    @anubus21 i would highly recommend Dan Harmon's & Jessica Gao's "Whiting Wong's" podcast about race - you can see him talk through a lot of this stuff with her and come to this realization. I know ARon has mentioned listening to it before and I think for a white guy such as myself with pretty limited experiences in the grand scheme of things, it is pretty informative as to the realities of racism in present day America in ways that I wouldn't have really thought about

    Here's a good comprehensive overview:

    And here is an example from today, where he says that immigration (and make no mistake he's talking about non-white immigrants) are changing Europe's culture for the worse:

  • TV Recomendations

    I have the 55 inch Sony 900 series tv, have been really happy with it, was right around $1000. I'm thinking about getting a TCL to upgrade our basement tv at some point - I have heard good things too. I think Sony is going to have better build quality and slightly better picture but from what I've read it really might not be worth the price difference.

  • Favorite Pilot Episode

    For me it's LOST

    Honorable mentions off the top of my head - thinking of pilots that just instantly made me want to watch that show: ER, Twin Peaks, West Wing, Futurama, Breaking Bad, Mad Men

  • Emmy nominations 2018

    Glad Ted Danson got the nomination, but except for Maya Rudolph for a guest spot no one else from the Good Place and it didn't get a best comedy nomination - that's forking bullshirt!
