No, it provides a nice amusement from the endless whining about and talking back to the trumpbot, which with all due respect - accomplishes nothing, other than some temporary emotional cleansing. I suppose your angry point may apply better if this thread was an organized effort, along with actual real world efforts by those here, to deal with the issue you speak about. Perhaps create a thread dedicated to that without all the derail and trumpbot whining for your efforts to be more productive, and if in that thread Clovis talks about open relationships and another poster says that derail is a nice distraction - then you can bust out that slam dunk post of yours.

Re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump: State of Emergency

people in this forum do all kinds of volunteer/activism work- you'd know that if you actually read and contributed instead of popping in occasionally to whine at pesky SJWs.

your posts are entirely useless and make you look quite pathetic in your jadedness. why even bother? you've never once uttered anything even bordering on profound or insightful here.

Re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump: State of Emergency

Thank you for your personal attacks, I am sure they made you feel better, and if I posted like that I have no doubt I would receive a warning or temp ban.

I genuinely applaud those that take the time to do volunteer work, and another thread idea that would be genuinely informative would be one where people detail such work, because that would give much more depth to the characters who generally post here. Perhaps you can start a thread where you list what you have done for instance, and then others can follow.

Not everyone wants to "read and contribute" in the heavy manner you suggest, so whenever you guys break things into nice organized areas - that helps with the less intense visitors and it might help attract some more (which some of you seem to suggest you would like after the sanitization process a while ago).

Re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump: State of Emergency

This argument about the cheating guy (which I didn't bother to read, and won't) is a nice illustration of the bind the left is in: the right transparently doesn't give a **** about Christian moralizing any more than the left does, but professes it endlessly as their sacred and divine charter. When their hypocrisy is pointed out by the left, it's shouted down as petty and, ironically, hypocritical.

(As an aside, it is technically petty in reality, since as previously mentioned nobody actually cares about this ****.)

Meanwhile, when someone on the left runs afoul of the left's big moral imperatives--me-too stuff currently, a variety of social justice issues generally--it's the stuff of identity crisis for the entire party, and smug jeering from the right about the hypocrisy of the left.

Just wanted to point out that the real issue here is one party is fundamentally arguing in bad faith. This **** is unwinnable.

I don't have any opinion over whether we should skewer the guy over cheating. But we should definitely skewer the whole right over fundamentally having a platform that's solely catnip to froth up the base's nationalistic and religious urges, and which they abandon constantly in myriad ways.

I spent 2 days volunteering last election, walked a total of like 30 miles, but nice attempt at a “slam dunk.”

What have you done other than making 500 word long whiny posts like these?

Re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump: State of Emergency

One big problem in this thread is posters are all or nothing on a lot of subjects and are really fast to bring extreme equivalences to weight in their argumentation.
Calling this the worst derail of all time is so shortsighted I feel bad I have to explain the difference but hey:
that cheating/fidelity/morality/marriage and who has the good/right values is omnipresent in america, be it from the gossip press angle or from the politicians campaigning points (look my opponent is unfaithfull trash,etc...).
It's literally everywhere all the time, the stuff that can break careers and lives.
And yet you guys are saying this is a worst derail than which airport is the best, how bad is a well done steak etc...
Now I would say that this is specifically an american issue, that's my personnal impression from life outside of america.
Then you could also say I'm out of touch cause america is the moral compass of the world.
Believe it or not this american compass is not really popular elsewhere.

Then when you create the thread listing all of your charity work, you are welcome to put that on top.

My point was not complex. You brought up all the work people here did that would require some research amid all the noise to find. With all due respect - I aint doing that research, so if those credentials are important (and I think it would help give the posters here more depth to their posted positions) then create an area where people talk about and compare their work in that regard, along with suggestions as to what others can do as well.

I think this would add some value to the forum, but if you think another person making fun of the trumpbot would then carry on with that. Its your guys house, you decorate it as you choose.

I am not really a slam dunk believer, but it seems to be a popular term here.

I applaud you for your work. I am in Canada, so I was not able to directly do the pound the pavement type of work that you did ( I did that for some recent municipal elections, and will for the upcoming federal election), but my brother and his wife in New Jersey did canvassing for Clinton for the general election in some of the roughest parts of Pennsylvania for several weeks, and their stories really opened my eyes to the situation of many in the United States.

I have no idea how many miles they walked, and I did not buy a plane ticket to go there to join them, so I am not making any personal claims of that. I donated $500 to the Clinton campaign, and I also donated $500 to some local candidates that my brother's family were supporting, because I very much respected the work they did, as I respect the work you have done, and that is why I am genuinely suggesting a thread where you and others outline the work you have done (along with suggestions for what others can do) would be very helpful. Yes, I have no doubt some of that information is mixed in with everything else here, but make it clean and separate is my suggestion. Think about it or dismiss it as you see fit.

Literally nobody has ever stated such anywhere ever. I’ll never understand what these completely manufactured “gotcha posts” accomplish. Do they make you feel better or superior to some mythical opponent?

I don’t set out to feel superior, but when you take the line that cheating on your life partner is nbd, it’s hard not to.

You respond to my manufactured post question with a manufactured post. How meta of you.

You must feel really superior to your mythical opponent today.

Man, if no one will speak for the ins0's/awvals/clovis' of the world (sorry to throw you in there clovis but that was some exceptionally bad posting) WHAT WILL WE DO? This thread isn't for SERIOUS topics, like an actually insane, senile old man in a death spiral of mental deterioration and mania with genocide on his mind and an itchy trigger finger, and an entire legion of followers who would just cream their sweatpants if he went full on deathcamps. I mean, ****. Where should we discuss something like that?

Can the Americans post in the Canadian thread to chuckle about how we elected Rob Ford's brother as Premier of our biggest province? He's going to change the slogan on our license plates from Ontario, Yours to Discover, to his campaign slogan, Ontario, Open For Business.

Yes, a small number of people here are extremely active, and if the goal is to just have the forum be pretty much that then carry on business as usual, chasing away any potential interlopers as they appear.

Well, while you and others truly believe the end is here, that may not be exactly how everyone else regards the situation - whether they agree with the politics of Trump or not.

I still applaud you for the volunteer work you did. My brother and his wife needed a politics break after the election, as it hit them very, very hard. You may want to consider one for yourself. Kind of looks like you can use a break.

I do appreciate the time you took for the discussion, and I fully understand if you, or others, require posting some additional personal insults directed at me, as I know what happens when I or other visitors post here infrequently.
