They're in love with Drumbpf's ego. His slimeball tactics embolden them to be the douchebags they've always wanted to be.

Kind of a long read, so I won't post the article, but it might be an eye opener for those who think Trump's rhetoric has no real world effect:

I would like to see these two debate each other, it would be a spectacle!

Who cares about political ideas and platforms, let’s insult each other.

US politics is s friggin’ Gong Show.  Their voters are morons, who are more interested in following Snooki more than they are in educating themselves about what’s truly important.  They are a seriously messed up society.  We should build a wall to keep them out!

Unfortunately that same trash tv is popular in Canada and Western Europe as well.

Vienna has always been one of the most cultured cities in the world.

One day I saw thousands of Austrian girls lined up in the mall waiting to meet Kim K.

it is a wee bit hard to get overly excited about this

though it is clearly troubling and racist

and trump is clearly influencing this problem

 

i'd think school shootings set the standard

for what isn't being adequately addressed in the usa schools

let's see them do something about that first

cuz i doubt they can really multi task these issues

 

this following quote is a cut and paste from Wikpedia

not the most exacting reliable source, but usually in the ballpark of valid information

(i appreciate this is not about school shootings)

List of mass shootings in the United States in 2020

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
 
 
Jump to navigation Jump to search

This is a list of mass shootings in the United States that have occurred in 2020.[1][2] This article only includes shootings with at least four total victims, including the shooter(s). As of January 31, there has been 28 shootings that fit this criteria, resulting in 38 deaths and 112 injuries, for a total of 150 victims.

Gun Violence Archive, a nonprofit research group that tracks shootings and their characteristics in the United States, defines a mass shooting as an incident in which four or more people, excluding the perpetrator(s), are shot in one location at roughly the same time.[3] The Congressional Research Service narrows that definition, limiting it to "public mass shootings", and defined by four or more victims killed. It excludes counting wounded survivors.[1]The Washington Post and Mother Jones use similar definitions, with the latter acknowledging that their definition "is a conservative measure of the problem", as shootings with fewer fatalities occur.[4][5] The crowdsourced Mass Shooting Tracker project defines a mass shooting as "an incident where four or more people are shot in a single shooting spree. This may include the shooter themself, or police shootings of civilians around the shooter."[6]

 

 

and a cnn article focused on school shootings in 2019

In 46 weeks this year, there have been 45 school shootings

By Elizabeth Wolfe and Christina Walker, CNN

Updated 4:13 AM ET, Tue November 19, 2019

 

(CNN)They have taken place across the country. From Georgia to California. At elementary, middle and high schools. On college and university campuses.

In 46 weeks this year, there have been 45 school shootings. That's nearly an average of one school shooting a week.
Of those, 32 of them were at facilities serving Kindergarten through 12th grade.
Since there is no single definition for what qualifies as a school shooting, CNN set the following parameters:
  • The shooting must involve at least one person being shot (not including the shooter).
  • The shooting must occur on school property, which includes but is not limited to buildings, athletic fields, parking lots, stadiums and buses.
  • We included accidental discharge of a firearm as long as the first two parameters are met, except in instances where the sole shooter is law enforcement or a security officer.
  • We included injuries sustained from BB guns, since the Consumer Product Safety Commission has identified them as potentially lethal.

I don't disagree but I always get a kick out of you using Snooki your example "celebrity" since her 15 minutes of fame were up about a decade ago.

Don’t know anything about Snooki, but love that name ... Snooki.  It has a real ring to it.  

Seriously though.  There is no way Trump (after these four years) should get re-elected.  Hell, I was totally shocked he won in 2016!

As it sits Alf I think he is re-elected. It will depend on the economy and whether the Demos can field a candidate who can challenge Trump on his turf. Trump is a liar and is racking up huge debt. But when you look at the other side you have to ask whether it would be any different. Bernie isn't going to spend $ Trillions? The American media doesn't even try to cover up their bias anymore. If the GOP has been manipulating public opinion where does that leave the Demos? Isn't interesting that balanced budgets and debt are hardly talked about in either party anymore.It is all about buying votes and kicking the can down the road. To hell with the next generation.

Well Bernie and Bone Spurs were around when Methuselah was a teenager.  If I were as old as them, I’d likely think **** the future.:P

Not everyone thinks that the DoJ meddling in the Stone trial is kosher:

 

https://www.msn.com/en-ca/news/newspolitics/more-than-1100-ex-justice-department-officials-call-for-barrs-resignation/ar-BB103K0E?li=AAggFp5
 

Quote

 

More than 1,100 former Justice Department employees signed a public letter Sunday urging Attorney General William P. Barr to resign over his handling of the case of President Trump’s longtime friend Roger Stone — and exhorted current department employees to report any unethical conduct.

The letter is the latest sign of a crisis of confidence inside the department. Four prosecutors quit the Stone case last week after Barr and other Justice Department leaders pushed for a softer prison recommendation for Stone, who is due to be sentenced this week.

The four prosecutors had originally recommended a prison sentence of seven to nineyears for Stone after he was convicted of lying to Congress and obstruction. The president publicly attacked that recommendation, and at Barr’s urging the Justice Department filed an updated sentencing memo suggesting Stone should receive less prison time.

Barr has said he did not talk to the president about the Stone sentence, but current and former Justice Department officials have sharply criticized the attorney general.

“Mr. Barr’s actions in doing the President’s personal bidding unfortunately speak louder than his words,” the Justice Department alumni wrote in the letter posted online. “Those actions, and the damage they have done to the Department of Justice’s reputation for integrity and the rule of law, require Mr. Barr to resign.”

Signatures for the letter were gathered by Protect Democracy, a group that has been critical of Barr’s handling of special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s investigation into Russian election interference and Trump.

The letter acknowledges there is little chance the signatories’ criticism will lead to Barr’s departure, adding, “because we have little expectation he will do so, it falls to the Department’s career officials to take appropriate action to uphold their oaths of office and defend nonpartisan, apolitical justice.”

 

The letter calls on every Justice Department employee to follow the “heroic” example of the four prosecutors who quit the Stone case “and be prepared to report future abuses to the Inspector General, the Office of Professional Responsibility, and Congress; to refuse to carry out directives that are inconsistent with their oaths of office; to withdraw from cases that involve such directives or other misconduct; and, if necessary, to resign and report publicly — in a manner consistent with professional ethics — to the American people the reasons for their resignation.”

The letter calls for similar vigilance in other government agencies, adding, “The rule of law and the survival of our Republic demand nothing less.”

A Justice Department spokeswoman declined to comment.

In an interview Thursday with ABC News, Barr said Trump’s commentary makes it “impossible for me to do my job.”

I hate how jokes aren't jokes right now.

It's true. Trump has already appointed unqualified supporters to his cabinet. (eg. Bestsy DeVos)

 

It's entirely possible that Trump would appoint Pirro to the post of AG, since the only requirement for working in this administration appears to be blind loyalty.

She criticized the Dems during the Impeachment Trial of trying to make Trump look guilty. That there was no presumption of innocence. 

Yes, that's exactly what the prosecutors do. You think a judge would know that.

Do you really think that all Trump supporters think the economy is strong? I am sure there are some who are better off than they were under Obama because they have a job. 

I think the very fact that Trump was elected in the first place is a solid indicator that many people did not have confidence in the economy. Income disparity is huge and many people at the bottom are desperate. This is why people like Trump and Sanders gain audiences. 

 

Sanders is a communist and Trump is a fascist. Laughable oversimplification. The Demos have trotted out a bunch of mostly nutbars to confront Trump. They tried to run him out of office on a series of questionable charges. IMO they should have gone after his business cred. He is a real estate developer. Someone who did business in a world awash with cheap money. He had no problem getting financing for his projects. He always dealt from a position of strength and got his way. He ran into financial trouble anyway in New Jersey with his casinos and some went broke. The Demos could have exploited all of that history. The only aspect of his business history I could call smart was that he sold the Trump brand on many hotels without putting a penny into them. He got a % of revenue the properties generated. He provided PR and some management. Many Americans are more accepting of businessmen who get in financial trouble but that is no recommendation for POTUS.   

 

Dissect Trump's history and communicate it. That said do the same for the other morons running for the Demos, Sanders, Buttigieg and Warren. They have no cred with me.  Klobuchar, Gabbard and I think Bloomberg have some good points to make.

Trump's aim is fascist. And would be if not for current opposition.  

 

Fascism (/ˈfæʃɪzəm/) is a form of far-right, authoritarian ultranationalism[1][2] characterized by dictatorial power, forcible suppression of opposition, and strong regimentation of society and of the economy[3] which came to prominence in early 20th-century Europe.[4] The first fascist movements emerged in Italy during World War I, before spreading to other European countries.[4] Opposed to liberalism, Marxism, and anarchism, fascism is placed on the far-right within the traditional left–right spectrum.[4][5][6]
