    Collusion with Russia

    DOJ Officials said today that Mueller will NOT be submitting the report next week. Full stop.

  3. What a dry comment. Downright arid, really.

    Dangerous politic climate

    Has it, though? If one extreme is responsible for 5 acts of violence, and another extreme is responsible for 5,000 acts of violence, is it really accurate to describe them as equally dangerous? We can agree all violence and extremism is problematic. No worries there, but seems disingenuous to suggest an equivalence which (to me at least) rings false.

    Political Humor

    In their most recent act of compassion, liberal lefties have decided to add Republicans and neoconservative values to the endangered species list.

    Trump Suggests "Animals" are Despicable

    The bigger idea here is how many parallels there are to current rallies and rhetoric.

    Speaking of the thread topic... Does anyone think the current political climate is healthy? Does anyone seriously think what we’re all experiencing today is the best way to proceed? Does anyone think Trump isn’t intentionally making it worse for personal gain? Does anyone think more people won’t be needlessly hurt if we continue this way?

    Allow me to rephrase. Multiple credible harassment / potential assault claims. Fair? Dont answer. It’s beyond time to move off the Booker narrative in this thread.

    Yes. He one time said we should speak out with passion against letting a guy with multiple credible rape claims from having a lifetime appointment on the Supreme Court. That's different from what’s being discussed here in this thread. Time to move off this point. Here are some of Trumps calls for violence. It’s 4 months old so the list today has only grown. https://abcnews.go.com/Politics/back-trump-comments-perceived-encouraging-violence/story?id=48415766 I haven’t shared them all. There were too many. Regardless, it’s beyond time to move off the Booker narrative, and I couldn’t care less who started it. You’re not in kindergarten.

    I suppose this hinges on what you mean by new brand, but domestic terrorism existed long before Trump. That doesn’t mean he hasn’t made it worse or conveyed perceptions that he sanctions more of it.

    That’s fair. The FBI clearly spends more time investigating right wing terrorism than left. Also, Trump knows what he’s doing and so long as it keeps people watching he doesn’t care.

    Just so I’m clear, you’re suggesting shouting in support of a principle is the same as calling specific people enemies, correct?

    It fascinates me that you assumed I was talking to you despite not quoting anyone.

    Trump Suggests "Animals" are Despicable

    A look back at just before World War II when 20,000 Americans gathered in Madison Square Garden to celebrate the rise of Nazism was recently published by Propublica. It shows how history may not repeat itself, but it sure does rhyme. It's only 7 minutes long: https://anightatthegarden.com/ When you consider how many thousands of others likely agreed with those who arrived at the garden and just couldn't get there that day (couldn't find a babysitter, etc.), it really gives perspective.

    Pointing to “other sides” ignores the actual underlying problem. It’s the wrong conversation to have and is a distraction. The issue is dehumanization. The issue is failing to see “others” as part of “us.” The issue is “leaders” picking at these divisive scabs and making it easier for the mentally unstable to feel sanctioned... to decide that acting and taking next steps is more socially acceptable than it is. The current political climate is toxic. It is dangerous. It needs to improve.

    Claims regarding sex and gender

    You conflated transsexualism with delusion. You made that assertion, even if unintentionally. You were wrong and dismissive, suggesting that it was like believing oneself to be Napoleon, which is disrespectful and ignorant.

    Claims regarding sex and gender

    Because they are different and only one is a delusion.

    I know you want a more specific and detailed answer, but the only answer I know to share right now is this: You will know only with time, patience, and persistence.

    to make green

    You cannot since the problem by planting shrubs, but you can help mitigate it. The best time to plant a tree is 20 years ago. The 2nd best time to plant a tree is today.

    Consider for a moment the magnitude of learning happening in parallel, among those watching from the sidelines whom you never see. The reward is bountiful, and often beyond our visible horizon.
