When did I say you called me a racist?

I don't believe I did, so NO, I did not lie.

I'd like to see honest critiques of the Democratic party. There are plenty.

As opposed to the absurdity we've seen so far, I'll share some of my top problems:

1. The Party tends toward corporatism. Donald Trump was well aware of this fact.

2. The Party is fiscally delusional about a great many things, primarily, government spending and government revenues.

3. The Party is far too colonial and interventionist for my tastes. I have no problem with a strong national defense. I'm even aware that we need a global presence to protect our interests. However, we do not have to meddle in every other country's internal affairs.

4. The Party is made up of long-term professional politicians.

What would I like to see from a party?

1. Realistic balance between national (State and local) infrastructural needs and revenue generation.

2. Term limits.

3. A return to regulatory controls on all large corporations, and more initiatives to help small, local businesses.

4. A massive scaling down of our international military presence by focusing on our own territories.

5. Support for a realistic "social safety net" which actually boosts people back into the workforce when possible.

Let's see...you've said I am in a sad state, challenged my courage, and insinuated I am a racist. And that's just off the top of my head. I am sure there are a few other personal insults I've forgotten.

I haven't made this personal -- you have.


I just saw the bit of your post that says you're at a funeral. My condolences. Aside from that ...

So ... I didn't call you a racist then? You lied about it?





For the record, you already responded to that comment with the above quoted statement, thereby acknowledging I was not accusing you of calling me a racist. I said you were insinuating it. You can't claim you have the exact opposite inference now.

Thanks for the condolences though.

Also, for the record, I DO believe I have prejudices I need to work on on. I would not characterize myself as a racist though.

EVERYONE could do better with their prejudices. Most refuse to admit it.

I admit I have room for improvement.

We all have prejudices; we all need to work on them. I'm at the top of that list.

We all have confirmation bias; we all need to work on that. I'm at the top of that one too.

I'm very much in favor of seeing REAL critiques of the Democrats; unfortunately, 99.99% of what gets espoused around here is simple dishonesty.

More critiques of Democrats:

1. Little party unity.

2. No charismatic leaders.

3. Diffusion of message.

4. Continual advancement of incompetent individuals.

5. Whining.

6. Lack of focus on the Constitution as the fundamental basis for all political actions in the US at the national level.

Straight white males don't get refused housing just because they are straight white males. But in some states, gay and trans people can legally be refused housing just because they are gay/trans. You obviously don't have a problem with that. I do.


Of course only straight white males are against gay and trans.

So you attack only straight white males and scoff at all else...ignoring how many black latino asian straight females think your movements are far over the top and now actually damaging your war for "equality".

Why exactly do you think that? Right, because the media tells you so...reminds me of the song.

Jesus loves me this i know, for the Bible tells me so........

LGBT can be fired for no reason. And of course, day by day, Republcian States are desperately trying to chip away at marriage equality.

There would be no need for Civil Rights Acts or protected classes if there wasn't discrimination. We see it here on a daily basis, racism, sexism, nativism, homophobia, etc. and usually from the VERY FOLKS who are so desperately trying to deny that there are any issues with discrimination for anyone EXCEPT White Straight Men.

It'd be funny if it weren't so sad.


ANYONE can be fired for no reason.

Why should every LGBT think they get fired for their sexuality?

Sounds like you think all LGBT should have more than equal rights to make up for all the suffering they go through so they can suck at their jobs.

Stop making up excuses for people looking and sounding like fools and then wondering why they get fired.

The ones who actually ACT equal do not have that problem.

Only in employment-at-will states, and there are exceptions even to that. However, anyone can be fired anywhere at any time merely for being LGBT, as those are not protected classes.

Well, first you'd have to prove that "every LGBT" thinks that ... but, I suppose that the thousands who have been fired for "being gay" would agree with you, at least in their own cases.

Swing and a miss. LGBT should have the same protections all Americans have ... no more, no less.

In fact, it's those of us that stand up for ourselves that drive those like you to distraction.

He can't. We both know the ideology of the party's completely reversed roles as the nineteenth century become the twentieth and those rolls were solidified by actions in the fifties and sixties. They know the left stands for equality and acceptance and that the right stands for intolerance and preserving the status of citizens based on how light their skin is.


Man, that reads like a talking point off a cue card provided by ShareBlue.

Until you're so progressive that you end up back where you started. Notice how self-segregation is a thing now?

1964 was a result of painting Goldwater as a racist because he didn't think the government should tell people who they could and could not cater to, even though he strongly supported civil rights in general and supported the removal of Jim Crow laws (notably put in place by Democrats).

So why are 'progressive' ideas so regressive?

Disarm the people, control speech, segregate the masses, government control of productivity, oppressive taxation...

No we didn't. The Revolutionary War was fought because a bunch of smugglers didn't want to pay taxes on corporate products they were forced to buy because they were sponsored by the British government. A good portion of the colonies didn't even want to fight the war until Franklin ran his propaganda campaign to unite the colonies, and even then they still had trouble drumming up support for the war.

Gonna call BS on your statement here because of your ignorance and general attitude to anybody who disagrees with you. The actual root of the Revolutionary War was not so much on smuggling as it was about the stamp for lumber that the British earmarked for building boats. Remember England is a island and very early on they exhausted their supply of lumber for ship building, as the main reason for colonization has always been for resources that the home country needs.

Holy crap no..

Go back as far as you like..

What is interesting about this electoral map?



let reality soak in...Not anomaly...Effen history!







The turn was civil rights.

Crazy how party affiliation can now retard brains and the ability to recognize factual history.

Good luck with your condition.
