So you concede that it was content based and that your attempts to mischaracterize me are therefore also deeply flawed.

You guys aren't doing too well here.


Christ you are a fckwit.



Is that an upgrade or a downgrade from being a 'cvnt' as you called me earlier? Some of your cheerleaders would consider those kind of tantrumy personal attacks as an immediate admission that you've lost btw. It doesn't worry me, but you probably don't want to go breaking their wee hearts.

It's an interesting area of rules though: from which sources should opinion posts be allowed? From the right I think national review stuff is permissable even if I only use Lord black for top trolling. But Mccarthy for example is very legit. Anything from the nyt and wapo is fair game. And the economist, which is nothing but opinion these days. Anything else?

Other opinion has to reach a very high bar of innovation or interestingness or credentials to be considered legitimate on this thread I'd think.

Spoiler: show
Quote:
Thanks for not raping us, all you ‘good men.’ But it’s not enough.

A flood of rage is rushing through women’s brains. Why can’t men organize to change themselves?



I yelled at my husband last night. Not pick-up-your-socks yell. Not how-could-you-ignore-that-red-light yell. This was real yelling. This was 30 minutes of from-the-gut yelling. Triggered by a small, thoughtless, dismissive, annoyed, patronizing comment. Really small. A micro-wave that triggered a hurricane. I blew. Hard and fast. And it terrified me. I’m still terrified by what I felt and what I said. I am almost 70 years old. I am a grandmother. Yet in that roiling moment, screaming at my husband as if he represented every clueless male on the planet (and I every angry woman of 2018), I announced that I hate all men and wish all men were dead. If one of my grandchildren yelled something that ridiculous, I’d have to stifle a laugh.

My husband of 50 years did not have to stifle a laugh. He took it dead seriously. He did not defend his remark, he did not defend men. He sat, hunched and hurt, and he listened. For a moment, it occurred to me to be grateful that I’m married to a man who will listen to a woman. The winds calmed ever so slightly in that moment. And then the storm surge welled up in me as I realized the pathetic impotence of nice men’s plan to rebuild the wreckage by listening to women. As my rage rushed through the streets of my mind, toppling every memory of every good thing my husband has ever done (and there are scores of memories), I said the meanest thing I’ve ever said to him: Don’t you dare sit there and sympathetically promise to change. Don’t say you will stop yourself before you blurt out some impatient, annoyed, controlling remark. No, I said, you can’t change. You are unable to change. You don’t have the skills and you won’t do it. You, I said, are one of the good men. You respect women, you believe in women, you like women, you don’t hit women or rape women or in any way abuse women. You have applauded and funded feminism for a half-century. You are one of the good men. And you cannot change. You can listen all you want, but that will not create one iota of change.

In the centuries of feminist movements that have washed up and away, good men have not once organized their own mass movement to change themselves and their sons or to attack the mean-spirited, teasing, punching thing that passes for male culture. Not once. Bastards. Don’t listen to me. Listen to each other. Talk to each other. Earn your power for once.

The gender war that has broken out in this country is flooding all our houses. It’s rising on the torrent of memories that every woman has. Those memories have come loose from the attic and the basement where we’ve stashed them. They are floating all around us and there is no place left to store them out of sight. Not just memories of sexual abuse. Memories of being dismissed, disdained, distrusted. Memories of having to endure put-downs at the office, catcalls in the parking lot, barked orders at a dinner party. And, for some reason, the most chilling memory of all, the one Christine Blasey Ford called up and that we all recognized: the laughter.

And to be fair, the fact that exports to the US grew at about the same rate as China’s exports to the rest of the world hints that Trump’s tariffs had some impact, according to a note from Julian Evans-Pritchard, economist at Capital Economics.


Cant you read your own link? The US$ increase will offset some of the tariff increase no doubt but 20 years of offshoring wont change that quick.

You'd think so.

However, the loudest and most vocal on here are pushing their conviction that CBF is a liar who is quite happy to ruin an innocent man's life with her baseless and partisan accusations. The real victims here are the men and boys who have to live with these types of accusations. If they weren't lies, why didn't she report them at the time?

But yes, the insults have been flowing thick and fast; those who don't support Trump and his Supreme Court pick are morons, libtards, fckwits and stupid cvnts.

Are you suggesting that I support Trump?

Or are you suggesting that I have called CBF a liar whose sole purpose in testifying is to ruin an innocent man and destroy his family?

Or are you suggesting that I indulge in ad hominem attacks? I do try to avoid copying Seneca's rhetoric concerning morons, fckwits and stupid cvnts, so I hope you aren't accusing me of that.

Trump isn't ever going to use 'sort of a Democrat' as a compliment of course, but it does show how he views independents.

CBS have explicitly asked him about Mattis leaving. Response was.

Quote:
Well, I don't know. He hasn't told me that.

I have a very good relationship with him. I had lunch with him two days ago. I have a very good relationship with him. It could be that he is. I think he's sort of a Democrat, if you want to know the truth,

But General Mattis is a good guy. We get along very well. He may leave. I mean, at some point, everybody leaves. Everybody. People leave. That's Washington.

He just can't ever give a short answer can he? There's a silence so he just has to fill it. It's where so many of his odd quotes come from.

The first line "Well I don't know. He hasn't told me that" was all he needed to say. All good, perfectly fine answer. But he just ploughs on....

No wonder his lawyers are so shit scared of him being questioned by Mueller.

It was quite telling to see FBI agents on the receiving end of the strategic silence. When both Comey and Strzok were being questioned by Congress, they'd often be given a question that they'd answer in one or two words. There'd then be an awkward silence that a less well prepared interviewee would generally feel obliged to fill, but they'd just sit and wait for Congress to move on to the next question.

It's surprising to see how susceptible Trump is to the strategic silence though, during one on one interviews or similar they can just sit back and let him fill in the silence with whatever ad lib he wants to add on to even well prepared answers. It's what's caused so many of his foot-in-mouth moments and opportunities for his haterz to snicker at ill-formed sentences and thoughts that he's simply used as filler so much of the time.
It's cheap copy, and a genuine distraction from more pressing issues, but makes for an easy headline. That's probably why none of his handlers have seen fit to coach him how to give short, succinct answers and enjoy the following silence, he makes such a good distraction from his own issues.
