You're not alone in your cynicism.

Oh, so convenient that these were just discovered. Mostly because she isn't the darling of the DNC anymore...she dared show a bit of integrity when she stepped down from her DNC post to support Sanders, and was critical of the handing to Clinton the nomination.

She's an enemy now.

The left acts like they champion against that imbalance of representation while taking donation from the very ones who further it.

Yep. And to me this is indicative of them not really being leftists but rather corporatists. Corporatists who are called leftists and socialists as established by conservative corporatists memes or tropes. To me, the war we are in is not a war between capitalism and socialism but rather a war between various corporate enterprises, those offering a product that can be labeled ''liberal'' and those offering a product that can be labeled conservative.

Just a week ago I had the opportunity to watch, once again, the original Rollerball. Not the remake which was a total bastardization, a white wash of the original which pointed directly at the development of a corporate world. Watched now from the vantage of decades that movie ranks right up there with Network into the coming future in a corporate world.

Did I drift the topic there?

On a tangent maybe...

But I think it's an accurate observation. I loved that movie. I've not watched it recently but yeah, I can quite see where you're coming from.

I "almost" feel sorry for politicians today. Almost.
But seriously, I'm 47 yrs old.
My 30 year high school reunion is this year.
Now looking back to those good old days I can see that I was totally different in my perception of the world.
I laughed at every black and gay joke told to me, well the funny ones anyway.
Does that make me an evil son of a bitch?
Do I have to pretend it didn't happen?
Can a person be allowed to change their perspectives on the world and be forgiven for their past?

Why does anyone bother with debates and discussions trying to sway the minds of the other side if you will not forgive them for disagreeing in the first place?

This woman changed her mind.
Isn't that what we want her to do?

Hey, I'm not saying there's anything wrong with that, but...

I laughed at every black and gay joke told to me, well the funny ones anyway. 

I STILL laugh at the funny ones. Black jokes, gay jokes, Native American/"Indian" jokes, Mexican jokes, Asian jokes, Region specific ethnic jokes that you wouldn't get unless you grew up there, disabled jokes, chauvinistic jokes, dark humor, blue comedy, and my favorite of all, white jokes.

"Which color coded Terror Level indicates the least chance of a threat?"

"Um, is Caucasian a color?"

BWAAAAAHAHAHAHA! It's so true! We don't want to hurt anyone and that's hilarious! (might be funnier when told by a black guy)

Here's another one I heard from a black comedian (not too many white comedians telling race jokes for some strange reason...)

"Here's a white guy going out to an event:
'Oh my goodness, I hope there's nobody sitting in our seats when we get there!'

Ok, now here's a black guy:
'Sheeeeit, I HOPE somebody is up in MY seat when I get there!"

LoL! White people would generally rather avoid a confrontation, while blacks are generally itching for a fight, and that's hilarious!

Ok, that was all fun and games and that fine, but on a serious note, white people are actually extremely dangerous and should be persecuted in every way possible lest they take over the planet again.

The More You Know!🌠

I find it asinine that supporting traditional, logical concepts like marriage being between one man and one woman only now constitutes "homophobia." This is why more and more Americans don't give a flying fat one when called "homophobe," "racist," or any of the other various throw away labels the left use as crutches to bully people into compliance. I agree with Tulsi of 15 years ago... the fact she claims her position has "evolved" and now espouses a more left-complying position is what makes me think she'd be a disaster in the White House. She's trying to move herself closer to the profane fascists representing the Democratic Party, making her as unfit as the rest of them to lead a country under the Constitutional Rights and freedoms we were founded on.

Remember she almost alone amongst the Democrats went against the Zionist Medias war on Syria so they will get her for that and she has, unfortunately, no chance in winning the Democratic nomination for that reason, not this old anti-gay marriage statement. Obama and Hillary both had the same view. But they will use this against her for her views on Assad.

Maybe she can pull a Hillary. Completely against gay rights until election time rolled around and then what do you know, it's now a great idea.

Yup, that's the SNL skit I was referring to on page 2.

As for Gabbard being completely against gay rights until election time rolls around... her wiki page claims she changed her views 7 years ago.


In 2012, Gabbard publicly said that she believed same-sex marriage should be legalized throughout the United States. She credited her tours of duty in the Middle East for her change in views: "It brought me to a deeper understanding of the meaning of freedom in our country. … We cannot afford to walk down that dangerous path of government overstepping its boundaries into the most personal parts of our lives."

In 2012, Gabbard opposed the Defense of Marriage Act and a proposed state constitutional amendment that would define marriage as between a woman and a man.
