    Game of Groans

    Bad puns, alliteration, characterization, or comments otherwise intended to generate a groan of some type. There will be points awarded according to a wildly biased and feckless grading system. Any participant may award points, claim victory, or assign medals of achievement to any post or commenter. As for me, I want to just die peacefully, in my sleep like my grandfather did. Not screaming and crying like the passengers in his car. And go...

    You don't think that television media, specifically, equivocated Trump's dishonesty and verbal incompetence during the 2016 campaign? Why journalistic "balance" is failing the public.

    How about a Game of Questions?

    Is the answer more important than the question?

    I don't think that most gaffes are juicy stories in any way. I'm also probably not representative of most Americans. If one candidate makes an embarrassing gaffe once per week on the campaign trail, it will be covered each time the president makes a noteworthy gaffe. A few gaffes will be covered repeatedly to "balance" the continuous stream of gaffes, grifting, and generalized verbal incompetence which flows from this president. It creates a false sense of equivalency for many viewers/consumers.

    Nah. They will make the same mistake of trying to give every candidate's "gaffes" some notion of equal time. This will ultimately, as it did in 2016, serve to normalize Trump's obviously abnormal behavior/speech patterns/dishonesty.

    It's not clear that the media can handle it. Look at how the media plays all of this gaffe silliness up already.

    The President Donald Trump Thread

    The electoral college is the last hope of "conservatives" to make rural votes count more than urban votes. Were it not for the EC the last two republican presidents would have been losers.

    The President Donald Trump Thread

    No she's not. Yet people still post incorrect propaganda about her and the election, go figure. The important bit is that there is no expectation that the next election will be free or fair and the American people apparently are complacent enough to continue to accept men as president who can't even win the popular vote.

    Benghazi was a congressional witch hunt designed exclusively to hound a political candidate with negative political press. It continues to be a rally cry for the extreme right. CNN

    She received millions more votes in a national election. We The People elected Clinton, the electoral college elected Trump. Then there's the little matter of the government officials being unable to say unequivocally that Russian interference did not affect the outcome of the 2016 election as Trumpublicans in Congress set about doing as little as possible to discourage future interference. They also are trying to insure that Trump and friends won't have any further troubles with that pesky FEC.

    The Leader of American Conservatives

    An alternative thread to discuss the shenanigans of the Republican candidate for and current owner of the presidency. We can attempt to highlight the unacceptable and dangerous bigotry and ignorance of Trump without making other participants the focus of our comments. Race Baiting Xenophobe

    The President Donald Trump Thread

    I woke this morning to widespread reporting that the military is now refueling aircraft at Trump properties rather than the more fiscally responsible option of refueling at a military installation. This information is not reported by Fox, that I can discover. My local "conservative" neighbors are busily calling people names and deflecting because they are convinced that this is simply fake news, since it isn't showing up in their bubble. It seems that the military is not readily cooperating with requests for information and oversight. Surely our republican friends will agree that a secretive military unaccountable to the people is a dangerous thing.

    It's perfectly fine for republican led states to advertise that they are satisfied with Trump's political "leadership". Those Republicans are well within their right to marginalize legitimate challengers to the Liar in Chief.

    Presidential Election 2020

    A debate requires that the participants know something about the topic. Trump remains uniquely ignorant of history and current events while simultaneously believing himself to be a genius.

    The President Donald Trump Thread

    You didn't provide any context for the quote. Regardless, in my opinion, this was played out as partisan political pettiness at the recommendation of our divisive and petty president. If outspoken Muslim congressional members aren't welcome in Israel because of voicing their opinions them none should be welcome. America First. Our priority shouldn't be coddling their leader.

    The President Donald Trump Thread

    I believe that the American First language of the POTUS should rise above campaign rhetoric and include standing with American legislators wishing to travel abroad. Frankly, if the sovereign nation of Israel prefers to ban legislators for partisan political pettiness the legislators should entertain the idea that Israel must not want that legislative financial support that those members would need to support. Trump's behavior was unprecedented. He needs to be Unpresidented.

    Domestic Terrorism

    Weren't a dozen or so Philadelphia police recently fired for racist language and behavior? Thirteen Philadelphia police officers are to be fired for making racist or offensive Facebook posts. That certainly fosters an environment of animus rather than trust.
