The Neverending Thread for Political Shit

This forum is for talking about non-music-related stuff that the DBT fanbase might be interested in. This is not the place for inside jokes and BS. Take that crap to some other board.

As a general fan of America from afar I'd like to say I hope you guys pull yourselves out of this shit and I'm confident you will. And you'll come back stronger.

I'd like to say that but fuck, you're making it hard at the moment.
Being a general fan of America must feel like being a Knicks fan.

Not a big enough fan to know what that actually means.

But i guess if America were a sports team Id be demanding that the coach get fired and would probably think hard about whether i should keep my season ticket.

If the USA were a sports team it would be the Dallas Cowboys:

-haven't won anything in ages but still strut around like the cock o' the walk

-supporters are loud and obnoxious

-loathed by many

-led by preening narcissists

Euthanasia? Not me! I'm positively cheered by the youth in America. I don't think we need the youth in Asia to help them out.

There's no love quite so pure as the hatred of Texas, no Texasses more pure than the Dallas Fucking Plowboys, and no irony more rich than that the top Texass* is noted Arkansan and all-around asshole Jerry Jones.

*Usage note: One person from Texas is a Texass. Two people or more people from Texas are Texasses. An group of people from Texas is a shitload of Texasses. That should clear things up. Except that little zit at the corner of your right eye. That's never going away.

Since the news cycle seems to be down to about 2 hours, everything that happened while the site was down or over the couple of days I was away is now somewhere between untimely and ancient history. So I'll just say that our political situation is completely off the charts nuts and it's really too bad that so much outrageousness has become normalized. More important, while Nero and the "Senate" (i.e. Congress") fiddle, Rome burns. SMH. :cry:

I'm sorry, but the Harris pick sucks. This administration will do jack shit to address criminal reform and end the war on drugs.

I'm still voting for them, but color me unimpressed.

I mean this in the nicest possible way but, who cares? Fuck Trump. Beat Trump. Get Trump the fuck out of the White House. Nothing else matters.

No, I'm right there with you. That's all that matters.

But I still care about the other stuff too. I won't run Harris down in any "public" forum, but at this point, it's mostly a left of center conversation in this forum and I figured we can be candid.

I really don't know, TBH. I think Harris is smart, politically savvy, and capable of governing.

I don't think she shares my priorities.

Like I said, this is not anywhere close to a deal breaker. Just venting.

One would think, but that (seemingly popular) issue has just vanished from the Dem message. The crappiest part is that I believe it's one of the main bastions of institutionalized racism, and it has a surprising amount of cross-aisle support at the ground level.

I suspect that may have something to do w/ Biden's starring role in passing that "put Black people in jail bill"* in the '90's along w/ Mr. Clinton.

* Sorry, I'm blanking on the name of it but I'm sure you know which one I mean. I know Biden has expressed his regrets, but still, it's not a great issue for him, especially since Trump signed the criminal justice reform bill (though he's since disavowed it). It's complicated.

She's smart and ambitious and doesn't need a weatherman. She might surprise us in the good way. As Robert Caro said of LBJ, "Power reveals".

I myself am ready to vote for a scoop of curdled cottage cheese and a side of bland sauce, and expect to prove it in November.
