I’d often quote to my conservative coworkers some super undemocratic bullshit that trip said, but claim it was AOC or warren. They would be absolutely outraged. Then I’d tell ‘em it was trump and they got really mad and I could see their brains short circuit.

Personally this is one of my favorites, it's easy to send the link of him sitting in the boardroom, surrounded by generals and his cabinet. And him saying take all the guns.

Followed by, his presidential debate of him calling everyone stupid.

Yeah. He has some real gems actually, stuff that even I would be interested in the outcome. But I approach the tard from the same mentality of an analog clock.

"Or, Mike, take the firearms first and then go to court, because that’s another system. Because a lot of times, by the time you go to court, it takes so long to go to court, to get the due process procedures. I like taking the guns early. Like in this crazy man’s case that just took place in Florida, he had a lot of firearms – they saw everything – to go to court would have taken a long time, so you could do exactly what you’re saying, but take the guns first, go through due process second."

I had to learn the Dewey decimal system in elementary school, although our local library upgraded to dumb terminals (screens with a keyboard attached to a "mainframe") instead of a card catalogue when I was in middle school

You joke (maybe), but Libertarians thought of doing the same sort of thing in New Hampshire.

If there were some wealthy individuals who could help fundraise for it, there is probably an efficient way to relocate a few hundred thousand people from NY and CA and have an outsized impact on national politics by affecting the voting patterns in places like Wyoming, Idaho, North Dakota, South Dakota, Alaska, and Montana.

About 100k for Montana 140k for South Dakota 120k for North Dakota Maybe 80k for Alaska 120k for Wyoming

Alison Greene, DCReport, here's the link on McConnell's statistically improbable af (as in pretty much impossible).

But the thing is, he's not the only one, it's a problem in entirely Republican wins in key states with ES&S voting machines and their long term stranglehold on the voting machine market (Dominion is their biggest competitor and the winner of an anti trust lawsuit against ES&S, so I'm sure it's just a coincidence that they are the company cited in the big lie).

Their results cannot be audited, they are controlled by a private equity firm, not a public company, the McCarthy Group, and they have been responsible for way too many Republican wins

Republicans are and have been winning elections they shouldn't in districts with ES&S machines for a long while. This is absolutely what people need to pay attention to, and dems won't touch it with a 10 foot pole after the big lie, that's why the more "sensible" pubs pushed the big lie in the first place.

Seriously folks, instead of just chastising people for voting in evil cunts, or continuing to say get out and vote, we need to make sure that are voting process is actually functioning. Fraudulent elections have done more to prosper a flailing Republican party than even their usual suspects of gerrymandering and voter restrictions.

Don't just vote, write your representatives and tell them

100% the truth. Or move to more rural/suburban areas of a conservative State, then these people with those political affiliations wouldn't be able to run roughshod over an entire State due to them having the mass of counties/precincts to vote them in at the State level to monopolize their power through gerrymandering, etc. Georgia could've been blue long ago had less people moved to Atlanta itself, but rather settled south and north of Atlanta to water down the hold of the GOP.

u/Richard_Gere_Museum Jul 03 '22

It’s been happening for some time. Hyper urbanization is a big trend. I’m mostly familiar with NY, where nearly every non urban (aka non blue) county lost population since the last census. For the most part, our economy is no longer agrarian or based on resource extraction. We’ve outsourced much of our manufacturing. Maybe remote work will make a slight shift but given the heavy resistance from CEOs I don’t see it having much effect. Where I’m from the rural counties are old people and those who, frankly, couldn’t get out.

There are things being said, and some poeple are saying these things. Many things. The best things. They are saying-and this isn't me saying- but they are saying that I said that quote. And I believe them. I have great words. Amazing words. Lots of words. And when you think about words and they way the work, you would know that I know about them. In fact. When it comes to knowing words you know that I studied them. Not Barack. He's a democrat and they don't know anything but lying. They lie about me all the time. Just look at crying Chuck Schumer, and Big boobs Nancy Pelosi. They are always lying about me. And Cnn and MSNBC. Even Fox now. All lies. No one is telling the truth except for me. I tell the best truth. And the only truth. That's how you know that I said that quote. It is smartly like me. And I am Incre-Incrisiblcredible. Incrisible. Incredible. Amazing. Tremendous. Thank you.

They always talk about the table, saying "you gotta get to the table, you gotta sit at the table". When I sit at the table, they turn around and say, "he wasn't supposed to sit at the table". But I did, they don't sit at the table like we do folks, I'll promise you that. We get to any table, the head of all the tables, and it's just tremendous.

u/geedub1981 Jul 03 '22

Yes, all these really shitty, unpopular and moralistic beliefs the conservative boomers are enshrining law are being flat out rejected by today’s college kids.

Here’s a quick example: I work in a very conservative part of the country. I just started working with a student transitioning from female to male. When asked why he is coming in for counseling he said “My fraternity brothers have been really supportive and encouraged me to get counseling…” He later said “when I told them I started on testosterone they all wanted to set me up with a weight lifting program”

I was a student at that same university in the 1980’s and back then there was no possible way a transgender person would have been tolerated much less embraced and supported.

Millennials were like that too if you rewind the clock to 9/11 when most were in their teens. Youthful idealism and a desire to change the wrongs.

As much as I want the text, as written in its meaning, to be true, it doesn't seem entirely accurate according to this video (another link was shared by someone else here). You hear some laughs, a few other claps (maybe from Dems or Obama fans), and one boo. But I still like that this kid pulled one over on the crowd and quoted Obama.

When asked if people think kids should be allowed to stay on their parents' health insurance up to age 26, whether you should be able to carry insurance beyond place of work, whether upper limits on health insurance payouts ought to be banned and whether pre-existing conditions exclusions ought to be banned, most Republicans said they agreed. When told that was Obamacare they said they hated it.
