Donald Trump just grabbed America by the pussy

Posted Images

A couple weeks ago I was in a customer's house and somehow the election came up.  He was from Palestine and had an interesting view on what's going on with the election results.  He could tell I was for Trump and I could tell he voted for Biden.  He was a really nice guy and I enjoyed the conversation we had.  It was in a pretty bad area so I asked if he was concerned there would be riots if somehow the election was overturned in Trump's favor.  His home was above his business downstairs.  So he tells me that he voted because people have fought and died for that right but none of it matters.  He believed God is in control of everything that's happening now from the election to the virus.  He said whatever happens is because God wants it to happen so why get upset about anything?  I don't share in his religious views but I walked out of the house feeling better.  If things don't go your way there's nothing you can do to change it because what's meant to happen will happen.  I'm pretty sure @31illusions can relate to this viewpoint.

Since when it is edgy to be open about what you believe or don't believe?

When you only interject a simplistic statement which is meant to be edgy into a debate that isnt about your beleifs...

An excerpt from my Oct 25th post concerning this election. Nothing has changed. It is not over yet. A reversal is imminent.

You poor deluded creature...

I don’t know much about god, I haven’t met him despite prodigious amounts of stimulants over the years, but what belief system do you have if Trump is god given? What kinda fucked up overlord sticks him on the earth as a representative?

It’s to any link where the source isn’t posted by the copyright owner (or someone who does not have the license to post).

You know that 1) just saying that doesn't make it true, right? and 2) that's not going to happen

One could queue up Trump tweets where he made fun of Obama for golfing a lot*

There's literally a Trump tweet for everything. I specifically remember him saying once, "Obama is golfing all the time. I don't get it. If I was in there, I'd be at the White House all the time." Add it to the promises made, promises forgotten list.

In an unanimous decision by three GOP appointed judges (with the opinion written by a Trump appointed judge), the federal appellate court in Pennsylvania strongly rejected Rudy’s appeal of last week’s defeat.

https://slate.com/news-and-politics/2020/11/appeals-court-trump-election-challenge-pennsylvania.html

Anyone hoping that a Trump appointed judge will back Trump’s absurd claims and hand the election to Trump is beyond delusional at this point. No help from the Court is coming.

My bet is the Supreme Court doesn’t even review the appeal. Why embarrass the highest court in the land by indulging such nonsense?

Got someone on your Christmas list you can’t stand but still feel obligated to buy them something? 

Here’s an idea:

Best part is if they end up liking the gift you have another thing to secretly mock them.

Trump and his legal team are confusing (not sure willfully or just being dumb) the primary election with the general election. 

Yeah, I’m sure they’re going to do real well in front of any appeals court or the Supreme Court.

Another day, another Trump loss:

Essentially the PA Supreme Court told these guys to fuck off.  The law passed by Republicans to expand voting access is not unconstitutional.

Moreover, the Court takes issue with the cravenness of the scheme. If Kelly and other Republicans had such an issue with the law, why did they wait until after the election to challenge it?  Perhaps because their issue isn’t with the law, but the results.

The people that brought this case and those who supported it are truly sad and terrible people. It amazes me there are so many idiotic assholes out there.

I watched AOC play Among Us on Twitch with Canadas NDP leader Jagmeet Singh yesterday.

What was said as they chatted politics was what would be expected. But I was struck by the platform as a thriving home for progressive politics. Because we can map a direct line from a very unhealthy breed of MRA's infiltrating the online gaming world and creating whats referred to as "Gamer Gate." A prolonged period of misogyny and harassment in the gaming community. The younger incel community was fostered in the gamer gate era. Eventually the incels start spree killing!

But during this time OG Twitch streamer "Destiny" comes along and starts calmly debating all the bigotry and right wing nonsense with a mildly progressive tool kit. He was the only voice of his kind for a minute there! As he gamed he would debate all comers for hours. And he was picking up as many frags in the debates as in the games! He changed a million minds and influenced many more middelers

Destiny eventually made the rounds in Left Media where some of the chinks in his armour became apparent. But never the less. A salute to Destiny. From one voice in the wilderness to AOC and Singh. Well done.

(I dont think that our fellow forum poster Destiny is the same as the gamer!)
