  1. Which resonates with you more- music or lyrics?

    Music, but the vocal melody is a part of that for me. Most of the time I can't hear lyrics without reading them anyway.
  2. US Politics/Elections Thread

    What is the evidence that Iran was breaking the conditions of the deal? I assume Republicans weren't just making it out of thin air, I am really curious.
  3. US Politics/Elections Thread

    What was the evidence for Iran producing nuclear weapons while under the agreement? It wasn't something I ever caught.
  4. US Politics/Elections Thread

    I think any administration probably would've ordered the strike that Trump did given the situation. There was a need to retaliate. However, I don't think other administrations would've escalated tensions with Iran over the last few years like Trump has thus necessitating an action like this. All of those little provocations that the media would "freak out" over and Trump supporters said didn't matter, this is what it all leads to.
  5. US Politics/Elections Thread

    There is an entire discussion occurring that is going completely over your head, dude. You still don't seem to be able to distinguish between criticizing Israel and being antisemitic. At this point I think you're choosing to ignore it. Bernie is Jewish but criticizes Israel, I am Jewish but criticize Israel, many Jews I know criticize Israel, are each of these people anti semitic?
  6. US Politics/Elections Thread

    It has nothing to do with them being Jewish, it's because supporting Israel is in America's best interest according to Kissinger style balance of power politics. This is also why you find that the majority of Democrats support Israel while only lightly criticizing Israel's human rights abuses/stance towards Palestine, because they know they can't really. By your logic you might have to assume that any time America has an alliance with a country it is because they have some underlying principled support for that country's ethnic group... You have come nowhere close to proving your original statement that anti semitism "runs rampant" in the democratic party. You presented two donors who are anti semitic and two house reps who criticize Israel. Then you posted links to reports of anti semitic attacks, which no one is arguing that anti semitism doesn't exist. Do you understand or agree that there is a difference between criticizing Israel and being anti semitic? So far it seems you don't agree, which would make any further discussion pointless.
  7. US Politics/Elections Thread

    The fact that anyone could not discern criticism of Israel from anti Semitism is so baffling to me that I actually can't even believe that those making the argument are being honest.
  8. US Politics/Elections Thread

    "runs rampant in the party" and you post an example of one house representative? Come on. And equating criticism of Israel with anti Semitism is simply disingenuous. I might agree with you that Ilhan Omar's comments border on being anti Semitic but even if they are (an argument I do find plausible but highly debatable) then you've only shown that one house rep might be anti Semitic. There are plenty of valid criticisms to make about Israel that have no connection to one's feelings about Jewish people. The only time that connection is made, honestly, is when Republicans want to play the race card against Democrats like they do against the Republicans. And it's a really, really weak argument.
  9. US Politics/Elections Thread

    How so?
  10. US Politics/Elections Thread

    You think the transcript vindicated Trump? What?
  11. US Politics/Elections Thread

    What are the Republicans' complaints about the impeachment process? Do they have any defense of the substance of what Trump did or is it all due process complaints?
  12. John Frusciante returns to RHCP

    Josh and John have always been friends and collaborators, I'm sure there aren't too hard of feelings. I loved I'm With You, but it was missing something just like their album with Navarro. The Getaway kinda sucked, it showed RHCP at their least daring. The chemistry between the 4 members of the popular lineup is found almost nowhere else. Josh's ethereal backing vocals and wide atmospheric guitar sounds were a cool twist on the RHCP formula initially, but I'll take John back in a heartbeat. John has a better voice than most lead singers. Any John slander in here must come from a lack of exposure to him. To the guy who saw him during the Californication tour: that is fair, he wasn't playing great at the time, I remember reading that he lost some of his guitar skill during the really bad drug days after he left RHCP in the 90s and had to work to regain it. By the time Stadium Arcadium was out, he is one of the best guitarists ever, no question.
  13. John Frusciante returns to RHCP

    Holy shitttttt this is good news
  14. Xbox Series X

    I think the name will confuse less engaged people. I really hope Microsoft is serious about the SSD "virtually eliminating loading times." IMO, the next gen is coming way too early, but this would make it worth it.
  15. US Politics/Elections Thread

    I think it's a tricky thing to try and assign credit based on motivations in politics. The primary motivation of any politician is to get elected or reelected. Does that mean they don't deserve credit when they enact good policy?
