    The Angry Violent Right

    And 44% replied “no” to the following: (Those 44% are wrong. ”Hate speech,” with some caveats, is legally protected under the US constitution.) https://www.latimes.com/local/california/la-me-berkeley-protest-shapiro-20170914-htmlstory.html https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2017/09/15/ben-shapiro-berkeley-protest-arrests/669071001/ So... to you, "from the left" means "university students." Right?

    Pay more. Provide training. Perpetuate the skills. Construction used to pay a living wage. Now it's a low-paying churn-through job where they hire & fire people quickly to keep labor costs down. If you can swing a hammer you're hired. If you start making too much, you're gone because they'll find the next guy. For about the same wage as a construction job in Nebraska, a person can work inside at an air-conditioned call center. Which do you think they'll choose?
  4. This has been talked about a lot in the run-up to this year's elections. Post here if you see articles showing actual examples of election fraud. Here's a storyI just ran across with two people busted for falsifying ballots:

    The Angry Violent Right

    Probably not fair to continue the Smollett discussion in this thread since it's been proven to be a hoax, but since this is where the discussion is... Smollett is a whackadoo. Read this.
  8. I don't think it's fair to classify "I was attacked by nazis" as a "leftist thing." That's a criminal activity, and the fault of the right-wingers who are doing it.
  9. I'm not sure what that means. ACTUAL violence against gays, ACTUAL violence against Blacks does happen every day. And those crimes are on the rise. Nobody believes this guy, and there were lots of open skeptics about it from the first report. He's shamed himself and he's going to get what he deserves. Likely written out of his show and shunned by Hollywood for a while.
  10. We've been discussing that in the Angry Violent Right thread. It never passed the sniff test for most (all) of us. He told the cops he made up the attack to get a better salary on the show. Dumb.

    I have friend whose daughter graduated with an art degree, but she doesn't want to be a teacher. I'm like... you spent all that money on that degree and what did you think she was going to use it for?

    As OTH defends Fox it's clear why he hasn't seen the story. You have to hit Page Down five times to find any mention of that story on Fox. Past complaints about Hillary (her emails!), Obama, several stories about AOC, complaining about Bernie... anything but a right-wing terrorist.

    The Angry Violent Right

    I think we can all agree on this. Trump enabling the white supremacists and calling them "very fine people," the "lock her up" chants that go on at his rallies to this day, the inciting of attacks on the press... it's scary out there to be labeled something other than conservative. Kamala Harris, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Corey Booker, all labeled and dismissed daily. Yeah, we have people on this very board trying to shame those of us who use "too many links" to provide factual evidence in a discussion. It's crazy. Yep. How many of us are constantly called "libs" or "dems" or whatever pet diminutive the angry anti-truthers want to use. But it's only shaming if you accept their opprobrium, remember that. Amen, man. Amen. I remember when there was a request by two or three members right here on HuskerBoard to have a separate conservatives-only section of P&R so they didn't have to listen to "the libs." People complain to the Mods about "the libs" all the time, trying to stop the voices of people they disagree with.

    The Republican Utopia

    tl;dr: The Republicans want to make it: Easier to get guns Harder to report government ethics violations Easier for companies to pollute and harder to report it or get information about it Harder to understand the relationships between businesses and government officials vis a vis the fees they pay to get mineral exploration rights In short, the Republicans are using simple majority measures to expand corruption, pollution and malfeasance and at the same time make it much harder for the citizens to learn what they're doing.
  17. With all of the Fake News running rampant through the world, Dear Leader has kindly provided us with a way to know which sources are not fake: campaign-style press clippings from Team Trump show where Real News comes from: Your Trump-endorsed Real News sources: ABC News (specifically, Jonathan Karl) Fox News (specifically, Sean Hannity) Chicago Tribune The Wall Street Journal USA Today The Atlantic Detroit News Rasmussen Reports Reuters Washington Examiner The Daily Signal Politico The (failing) New York Times * We'll update this as the endorsements roll in. What a time to be alive! * based on Trump's interview of 7/20/17

    DOJ Initial Russia Hearings

    So, uh... buckle up. I mean... Burr was just confirmed. And he's Trump's guy. And he's saying that Mueller is done already? And this is just weeks after Mueller acquired terabytes of data from Stone? Eh...
