No. In fact we haven't seen anything yet.

You don't spend much time around young people do you?

If we don't raise the voting age to 40... like... NOW....... we're done.
My daughter recites the Pledge of Allegiance and knows all about our Flag.

She is 6.


I have three of those things between the ages of 17 and 10.

Enjoy it while you can.

These days I just pray that they never get their hands on some dragon eggs... and you should too.

That’s because leftist beliefs are childlike. Based on feelings and little else.
Facts are the enemy
Statistics are racist
Real life experience and historical proofs mean nothing
CLOWN WORLD

They’re still a tiny insignificant minority though, thanks to the ‘leaders’ the the media


And the right is driven by fear and propaganda.
The truth is somewhere in the middle. That's sonething a partisan hack brain can't grasp, right or left leaning

There is hope, we just have to reach out and...lead the way.


Let children be children ffs.
Plenty of time to turn them in to gulible zombies pledging allegiance to a piece of cloth.

Yep. The liberal hour is ending and they’re throwing their toys out of the cot because of it.

As though it’s anyone’s fault but their own

Bye bye left. It wasn’t good while it lasted.

Just like any liberal's they'll do anything for a buck,these clowns posing as protestors are usually members of labor unions,another guise,they use them to deflect the truth right along with media folly,no party could be so ignorant as the Democratic party,those thieving bastards use the 3 card monty approach,and as this post shows,it is working to rile up the sheeple

There was a piece in the NYT by Ross Douthat where he talked about why liberalism loses. He still thinks it's obvious that most people are liberal, but he thinks the problem is that they're only liberal in a narrow way.


I don't think most people are liberal, it's just that they're like electric car owners - they just can't shut up about it. When the entire basis of your movement is progressivism, it becomes a game of virtue signalling and one-upmanship. By default, that means they're always searching for progressive causes to champion, while making sure that everyone knows about it. Ted Kaczynski said as much, in a roundabout way.

The second part of the problem is that liberals believe in their own superiority so much that they deride or humiliate people with differing views. You see it after every election or referendum - when a conservative movement wins, liberals whine and moan and call everyone names. Or they call people stupid and threaten to leave the country. That's why so many people with conservative views just keep those views to themselves.

Most people are in fact liberal in some ways. Most people don't care if you are gay and want to marry or most other things under the sun so long as no one is hurt and it's between consenting adults, they don't care if you are any particular skin color, and they lean pro choice but not to the extremes. Though one could argue that the not caring about your skin color is no longer a liberal trait and actually seems more a right wing trait lately.

If the right could drop the anti-gay #, and unlike the left with their extreme pro-choice reign in their extreme anti-abortion policies, and legalize marijuana the democratic party would be done for.

People who are pro-choice will simply never vote for the right so long as there's any chance extreme laws like those in Alabama seem possible or plausible should the right gain control.

Let me put it this way I lean pro-life, and even I am nervous about voting right wing due to laws like the ones in Alabama. I don't want to hear it's a state rights not a federal issue either, as more states are trying for the same kind of extremes including Ohio where I currently live. It's a right wing issue and it's going to #ing destroy this entire shift away from the elites and swing it back around.

People are also sick of people trying to trample over the rights of gays. Gays are accepted by the majority now and deserve all the rights of everyone else, get, the, #, over, it.

It's just the cyclical nature of politics. We're now pretty much in a new version of the 80s. In the end, the rich will get richer, middle class wages will stagnate, the poor get screwed, and we top it all off with a recession. At which point the pendulum will swing back to the Left.

The fact that people think 50% of the world are suddenly going to switch their whole worldview and "kill" half the political system is ridiculous.

And if you think that it would be a good thing for the whole world to walk in lockstep with one political ideology then you're a fascist.

Except I'm the last person you'd call liberal, and I agree with most of that. I may not approve of all it, but I respect that people need to mostly go their own way in life.

The problem comes in when people going their own way in life translates into "I'm going my way, and you have to openly signal that you approve of my way to affirm it."

Yeah, I'm sorry, but I don't see many people going out of their way to signal an open affirmation of my choice to be a Christian, but then again, I don't expect them to. Similarly, if you want to be gay and have your partner, fine, but don't expect me to signal my glowing approval of it. It should be enough that you can live your life as you choose and not be molested for it.

Also, people are open that laws like the one in Alabama are meant to be a direct challenge to Roe v. Wade more than anything else. They also are a direct reaction to the law in New York. Did that make you similarly queasy? I can't vote for anyone who endorses that view of abortion either.

Seriously. When even Jerry Falwell Jr. says your law goes too far, it probably goes too far. In all honesty I would probably vote Republican if they went back to the classic Conservative model.

While I agree with you about the rich getting richer, the middle class getting poorer, and the poor staying poor for the most part terminating in a recession...That has been the cycle and I do not see it changing simply because it is a cycle and the way of the world...

But


And if you think that it would be a good thing for the whole world to walk in lockstep with one political ideology then you're a fascist.


Where was your name calling these last several years when the NEW WORLD ORDER crowd was forcing their socialist utopian Ideas on everyone and anyone who would listen ? What was your feelings about all the names the majority of citizens in a given country were called (and demonized) by the so called political leaders of the time just because they did not buy into the NWO agenda ?

Hillary Clinton called them "the deplorables." Barack Obama called them losers who "cling" to their Bibles, bigotries and guns.

To President Jean-Claude Juncker of the European Commission, they are "these populist, nationalists, stupid nationalists... in love with their own countries."


Tell me you agreed because the crowd you run with must be fine with this.. or maybe I just misunderstood ?

My crowd says nope just as others around the world have said NOPE. Call anyone who disagrees a Fascist, a bigot, or any other name you can pull out of a liberal socialist hat... the majority has voted the heroes of the left out.. And I hope I go to my grave knowing full well the last vestiges of their kind have been defeated to rise no more..

You are right the pendulum does swing back and forth but it was looking like it had been stuck so far left it would never come back... But.... it does look like it is starting once again to swing.

My comment goes both ways. If you believe that 50% of this country doesn't deserve a political voice, you're a fascist.

By the way, may want to get out of the microcosm that is the US if you think the Democrats are far Left. The DNC is farther Right than most counties' Conservative party.

ETA: I don't run with a party. In fact I've never voted in an election because I've never found a candidate I actually support. Like I said, if the GOP went back to classical Conservatism, ie practicing fiscal responsibility and letting people just be, I would vote for them in a heartbeat. Instead they're just as spending hungry as the Dems while also attempting to marginalize groups of people that have been historically oppressed in this country.

Every thread today...

How great we are..... how stupid the left is.

If it was so obvious.... Y'all shouldn't have to shout it out so often.

Just saying.


I visit less and less every day.

The quality and content are just not what they used to be.

You mean the normal gains the democrats made that basically always happen during mid terms? You mean the gains the republicans made in the Senate? You mean the results that were much weaker than all of the prior mid terms over the last two decades?

Those mid terms?

Just yesterday the SCOTUS upheld transgenders in school locker rooms. They refused to even listen to the case presented by the Pennsylvania school district and just upheld it on principle.

This is with Kavanaugh on the SCOTUS and 5 out of 9 of them being Republican.

Depraved, perverted lunacy. The tyranny of the 1% reigns over the 99% and everyone willingly goes along with it. People don't speak out against this monstrous perversion because they're afraid of being labeled bigots. WTF you're okay with a teenage boy walking into the girl's locker room and stripping naked in front of your daughter and everyone acting like that's okay? Because the boy says he's a girl.

The liberals aren't growing weaker, they are growing stronger.

We need to repeat the French Revolution. If our highest court, the rule of law in our country says this is how things are going to be, then the only higher law to break it is the law of God. Our natural human right to rebel and tear down the unholy institutions that blaspheme his name and terrorize us with evil.

Why can't it be both?

Maybe visting less and less every day is a good thing, gives you time to re-think your views and perspectives, why they don't work in this day and age.


The quality and content are fine, it is user generated and we have some gifted members here who can make a decent thread.

The ever swinning pendulum.... continues to swing.

I just hope that with the now increasing nationalist sentiment we aren't walking ourselves toward the next great war ... as it will surely be the war to end all wars.

You've taken that completely out of context.

It didn't need to be heard because the strictest set of requirements were in place. Did you read the article?

There are individual stalls and in some cases, stalls within stalls. No open showers or anything.

As a matter of record, I am totally agaisnt this, but at the same time a middle ground has to be achieved, IN THE MEANTIME. So, at the very least, a really STRICT environment.

It is of my opinion that the appeal didn't need to be heard considering how restrictive the setup is.

EDIT001: Also, this DOESN'T set a Nation wide precedent, this was just this issue.
