So the shooter was a white guy who was dishonorably discharged for assaulting his wife and child; and escaped from a mental institution, and had guns.

And if he was black, we’d be hearing about BLM. And funny how Fox and Sinclair don’t talk about why he was able to pass a background check, as the military apparently wasn’t satisfied with failing its duty to actually support a violent man’s integration into society, but doubles down by regularly failing to report the type of violation (violent crimes and domestic assault) that make it illegal to buy a gun.
Long signatures are really annoying.

As someone said on Twitter, even if the regulations stop one mass shooting per year, isn’t that enough?

Pretty sure I said the same thing yesterday. Look up.

Tonight's elections are crazy. I wasn't to into it but looking at the results...Trump has rallied his enemies. What happened in Virginia tonight could be really bad for the GOP.

First Asian woman elected. First black woman elected. First trans elected. First time in a long time where Democrats will have veto power over Virginia's next post-census electoral map.

VA has always leaned blue but all over the place the votes are going against everything Trump and his little racist garbage sheep followers stand for.

The problem with the left wing is that they traditionally disenfranchised around due to Dems centralist politics and therefore rally around their pet projects "Save the Whales" etc.

I think this is a wake-up call that:

a. while you might not want to vote FOR the Democrats, as they probably won't champion your pet project, you certainly probably want to vote AGAINST the Republicans
b. you have to be a little crazy to want to get into politics but for 2018 / 2020 it seems like more quality candidates are stepping up.
c. while the new ight-wing political MO is throwing out bagfuls of lies you can't just throw up your hands and walk away; because the undecided will latch on to some smear and go with it [though admittedly the smear is a political gambit that everyone uses]

Tie? Hate to say. Both psychos. Both predators. Both racist.

In Moores defense, in 75 the age of consent in hillbilly land was 12. But in the other hand 30 sources allege more than one case of harassment.

I think it's a tie. But Louie CK should be shot in a firing squad because he's not a republican this guilty as anyone could ever be.

Not close. Moore is gross, but at least he is sane and coherent. The people that voted for him know that he puts religion over state, (which should be disqualifying, but there’s some impressive cognitive dissonance), but he really isn’t much different than what they voted for.

Trump is the President, and I don’t think he understands the most basic parts of any aspect of his job. He thinks that because, on net, Americans spend more money on Chinese goods than vice-versa, we are “losing” that money. As if...the goods that were received for that money just don’t exist. I don’t even know where to start with that. I have to think even his supporters have to be shocked at his inability to grasp even basics of economics, taxes, health care, foreign affairs, management, damage control, communication, etc. His inability to pass any significant legislation despite control of all levels of the government is unorecedently inept.

Jim Wright is an excellent writer, and pens a lot of essays for his site: Stone Kettle Station.

This article was particularly strong, IMO, and his one line really sticks with me and explains a lot about how he got elected: "Trump is what stupid people think a smart guy sounds like."

without reading the article I have read that thought expanded as well.

Trump is a stupid person's idea of a smart person. A stupid person's idea of a rich person. A stupid person's idea of a strong person.

agree, spot on.

This section from the article is something that I have always believed in, and the people I respect most in this world act like this:

You know how you can tell which guy in the room was actually a Navy SEAL?
He's the one that doesn't brag, doesn't threaten, doesn't engage in bluster. He's the quiet confident fellow in the back, the one you didn't notice. He doesn't have to prove anything to anybody, he knows who and what he is and he doesn't give a tinker's damn what you think of him. It's the swaggering pompous ******* spinning outrageous war stories and constantly trying to prove his manhood that's the fraud.
Those who've been there can tell the difference at a glance.
Those who haven't, listen to the fraud with rapt attention and eyes as big as saucers.

So a government shutdown is pending despite Republican President, House and Senate and they’re blaming...Democrats. Beyond parody.

I jus5 read the transcript of a testimony to the senate investigation committee on Russian interference of Simpson, the ceo of the investigative firm that Christopher Steele, the ex Brit Mi6 guy worked for. 182 pages. Fascinating. Synopsis? Trump and family are finger puppets to piles of Russian mob money...

So the Republicans won’t even negotiate for something that 70%+ of Americans want until the Dems agree to something 25% want. And that very popular hasn’t already been agreed to by a bipartisan committee before Trump rejected, them by Trump himself before his advisors convinced him to go back on his word.

I’d say the Rs would never recover from this politically (before 2020), except of course 2/3 of Americans will turn on their TVs tonight to see Fox or Sinclair selling it as the ‘Schumer Shutdown’ and questioning the safety of Americans despite an unaffected military. The degree to which Americans are purposely misinformed by the Republicans and their major organizations (Fox and NRA) would not be out of place in a dictatorship.
