Making # up. Key tactic of yours. I'll thank you to simply read my post, not inject your own thoughts into them. But I can't force you to be reasonable if you decide not to be.

Frankly, you sound like you're troubled with self-doubts and you want to blame it on "SJWs."


When your argument is so weak you have to resort to high school nonsense like this, just don't post. Thanks.


LOL. Your posts are hardly the standard for great arguments. Further, why do you think anyone cares about your assessments? If you don't want to read my post, skip over it. Thanks.


You think your instructions are any more meaningful than mine? Newsflash, you're nobody. If a mod tells me not to respond to your childish posts, I'll comply. Otherwise, be prepared to have your immature dribble called out. Don't post in public if you're unprepared to be embarrassed in public.

Another thread from the man with nothing else to do but whine about free speech. Don't cry hun, you don't have to watch it.

Also lol at using Breitbart for anything at all. Purveyors of the finest fake news.

But you already know that, hence avoiding comments for several pages now calling you and BB out on the misrepresentation (read: fake news). Same old trumpcult.

A flop in the making is what it is. I used to be a huge Trekkie. I mean, embarrassingly huge. Uniforms? Check. Props? Check. Toys? Check... But after the remake of TOS, I lost all interest and sold it all off. (Except for my tricorders!)

I can tell you, as an ex-Trekkie, this show looks like utter crap. For starters, it's SJW'ey just to be so. Secondly, the ship looks all wrong as does the uniforms. It's got an off feeling about it. I'd rather have a couple of more seasons with Enterprise with the refit NX01.

The ones claiming that ARE the sheep and MSM.


What?



It is YOU who constantly fail to see irony.


Irony of what, exactly?



The left is BY FAR the easiest group to lie to..to lead around by the nose...to delude on levels they will never be able to see.


Really? Then why is it the "right" that seems to fall for the sort of obvious BS that the OP and it's source are trying to push?



They live in emotions, which they have been told is a good thing...a GUT REACTION. They are unable to see from a birds eye view and THAT IS A FACT.


No. It's not a fact. You are talking out of your ass to make partisan snipes.



It is real sad, i see their souls wanting good for all, they just do not realize what good is actually around them.


Not sure what that is supposed to mean.



Ignorance can no longer be used as an excuse inside the soul, no matter how you leftists frame it.


Frame what? Your post is rather confusing and I'm not sure what the "soul" has to do with anything.

They had some interesting storylines in mind for season 5 of Enterprise.

Looks like "Hollywood" has gone all out to compare Trump to some current political issues as racists and un-PC.


They're not the only ones.




Study: Trump fans are much angrier about housing assistance when they see an image of a black man In contrast, Clinton supporters seemed relatively unmoved by racial cues.




All it takes to reduce support for housing assistance among Donald Trump supporters is exposure to an image of a black man. That’s the takeaway from a new study by researchers Matthew Luttig, Christopher Federico, and Howard Lavine, set to be published in Research & Politics.

In a randomized survey experiment, the trio of researchers exposed respondents to images of either a white or black man. They found that when exposed to the image of a black man, white Trump supporters were less likely to back a federal mortgage aid program. Favorability toward Trump was a key measure for how strong this effect was.

www.vox.com...

Of course all one has to do to verify these results is visit the websites Trumpians frequent & read their posts.

Or you can observe the lengths to which some of your friends, most of whom voted for Hillary or Bernie, will go to inject race, gender, sexual orientation, etc into matters that have absolutely nothing to do with it. Unmoved by racial cues? I'll believe it when I start seeing it in my day to day life. They're often the first ones to bring color into a conversation, when most Americans have moved past seeing everyone for their skin color.

Sorry that it triggered you by pointing out that your side does the same thing.

Klingons were Soviets
Romulans were Red Chinese

Federation = united Nations on steroids.
Volcans = what used to be considered good China aka Taiwan.

There is a reverse Macarthyism going on in Hollywood, methinks.
A new house on un-american activities.

This new Star Trek looks really stupid, even with Malfoy on the bridge. Star Trek needs Behr and Moore again. They need to scrap this series and just do DS9 season 8.

The Federation is the US according to The Omega Glory:


The two fight over an axe when Yang warriors arrive and take everyone back to their village. Their leader, Cloud William, turns out to be the prisoner from earlier. Cloud produces a very old American Flag and ancient manuscripts from which he poorly recites the Pledge of Allegiance. When Kirk completes the Pledge of Allegiance, the Yangs are shocked. Spock surmises that the cultures may have developed along very similar lines to Earth. Kirk speculates that the Kohms were "Communists" and Yangs were "Yankees." Apparently, the Omegans had a war, similar to the Cold War between the Soviet Union and the United States. The conflict resulted in a war that destroyed both cultures many centuries earlier. Even Spock found the parallel between the two worlds to be "almost too close".

The Komes being Soviets. Klingons, Romulans, etc... who knows. Maybe up to ones own interpretation.

That makes sense.
I remember an old episode that pointed out that the Romulans were distantly related to the Vulcans.

The original Star Trek promotes socialism and an NWO. It has pretty much been spouting liberal beliefs since day 1. Though Breitbart is exaggerating here. Big surprise there...

The politics of Star Trek

Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry stressed the virtues of tolerance and cooperation across racial, ethnic, and national lines….

But at least from a libertarian perspective, the otherwise appealing ideological vision of Star Trek is compromised by its commitment to socialism.

The Federation isn’t just socialist in the hyperbolic sense in which some conservatives like to denounce anyone to the left of them as socialist. It’s socialist in the literal sense that the government has near-total control over the economy and the means of production….

Wait, so that study is saying Trump supporters naturally accept giving housing assistance until shown an image of a black man, and then they'll reject giving it?

Since you are the expert on the study, please explain how it works.

It looks framed to me (confirmation bias).

I'd expect Trump supporters would be against any welfare even if you showed them pictures of crying babies and apple pie, but maybe I'm ignorant.

Please enlighten me.

The means of production?

Walk up to machine, say "Gimme steak n lobster", watch it materialize, take food and eat.

Replicator = near infinite wealth.
