Trump's actually put a lot of things in perspective for me -- slavery, white supremicists, probably Nazi concentration camps too --- you know, there's blame to be had on both sides.  The world would be a better place if we could only compromise on those kinds of things.  Of course, people kneeling at football game can't be tolerated, but we can compromise on slavery.

Also, there's blame on both sides when a white guy drives a vehicle into someone with the intent to injure/kill them, but, when it's a minority? Pure evil.

Aside from it being a morally repugnant position to take, it's also just flat out historical ignorance.

People smarter than me have made this point but there were constant, repeated attempts to "compromise" on the issue of slavery. The 3/5's compromise was literally written into the constitution. The North repeatedly offered the south could keep their slaves if they agreed that slavery, as an institution, couldn't spread to new states out west.

Lincoln even said that if he could have kept the country together without freeing slaves he would have. The South started the war because they thought Lincoln would try to end slavery.

That's what offends me so much about the modern political climate. It's not even a right-left schism or a racist-not racist schism. It's people who demand that their ignorance be taken seriously and look at knowledge as simply being a different side.

Just so we are clear, he's implying that places with electricity and "the light" don't have sexual assaults right?

The Light of Righteousness, if you will. And only fossil fuels can provide this light, this electricity.

It's true; Trump's ludicrousness and complete lack of self-awareness is perfect comedy/satire. Monty Python, Peter Sellers, George Orwell- all of them at their highest level would not compare. How is this an actual living, breathing human being?

Today I Learned: one of Trumps biggest financial
backers is on the hook with the IRS for $7B in back taxes, and hes been lobbying to remove the IRS head (via Trumps authority) to quash the ruling.

This is how to posterize someone (politely):
Danica Roem (D) was elected into the House of Delegates last night for Virgina. She is the 2nd ever out transperson to be elected in a US Statehouse and beat out Republican incumbent Bob Marshall, who is perhaps best known for his failed bathroom bill and has referred to himself as the 'chief homophobe'.

Bob Marshall refused to debate Danica Roem on the grounds that she was transgendered.  I believe he was afraid of catching "the gay".

Glad to see that she won because she actually ran a campaign that wasn't entirely built on The Bible and hatred.

Chris Hurst, news anchor and then boyfriend of reporter Alison Parker who was gunned down on live television alongside her cameraman Adam Ward, ran and won his seat in Virginias House over Republican incumbent and NRA booster Joseph Yost.
