Where I live you can go to a variety of locations where you will see giant US flags flapping or draped in areas where it is totally inappropriate or inapplicable. There are a few car dealerships that fly giant 50 foot flags from the center of their lots. There are corporate business centers that have flag poles in front of them. They are fucking everywhere.

Democrats are only 'progressive' to capture dissenting votes. This proves that their job is to limit available options in the political system.

Yeah maybe. It's just amazing that there are people who take this clown seriously (even people I know irl) when he screams inane shit like that.

You don't think he actually believes they're putting chemicals in the water to turn the frickin' frogs gay?

If this were posed a few years ago, the answer would be "probably not." I am a bit out of shape these days. I probably need to work at it again.

I would donate most of it to George Soros' Official ANTIFA operations fund.

I evolved from being raised a religious right winger to going US libertarian then embracing socialism. I also had to self-reflect to purge some pretty hasty brocialist tendencies. I consider myself mostly reformed but I guess that's ultimately not my determination to make.

Sounds like a run-in with another one of these black-and-white, by-the-book pricks who think everything has to go exactly the way he fuckin' says, regardless of the situation at hand.

It should start with "Nazi to become..." instead since he is so much worse than a mere holocaust denier.

Assume everything you do with it is public. If there is anyone you don't want to be able to see anything about you, assume they will see everything. You have almost no privacy controls. Facebook is a stalker's paradise. I know because I have had a couple. Facebook makes it very easy for those people to find you, harass you and the people you know, and even make their way into your physical space.

I do think we should rise above their expectations. Leftist thought doesn't need to drag people down with ad hominem attacks. We have the facts at our side. Shitposting feels good because they already have so much of the Internet sympathetic to them. But they also believe they have some kind of superior intellect, and that we're just riled-up moonbats who can't hold a reasoned debate. I think we should at least prove them wrong, and enlighten those we can.

Of course, the moment they do exhibit unresponsive bad faith arguments or unrepentant malice, ban 'em.

Oppose. There's just no good reason for this. I disagree with a few people here but my reaction to that isn't to propose a motion to ban. There's nothing toxic being presented here.

My current partner is probably my last, so if something happens between us, I'm done. I find that I don't have the desire and patience to go through all the rituals toward it. I'm not a social butterfly, I don't think I'm particularly attractive, and my experiences have made me cautious and a little closed off, so these things in tandem make the prospect of dating, I think, a little more difficult for me than it probably does for many other people.

I think if I did date I would have to select for someone who is at least genuinely sympathetic to the cause rather than someone who just nods and agrees. Politics are an important area to my discourse. They would also have to be outside the US or at least willing to leave with me when I get the opportunity. Another important thing is that they'd have to also be someone I can be friends with.

Those core principles aren't important to left-liberals. They want to take the most shallow, easy, accessible components to make capitalism into a softer, cuddlier tyranny without enacting a single meaningful change. Adventurous liberals might hear the names of people like Lucy Parsons then see articles like this, giving the appearance of depth and scratching their curious itch, without doing anything to make them question their liberal sensibilities to the point they go further left.

Amazon could easily hire more people instead of spending money on this kind of tech under the guise of improving efficiency. But that's not the point. The point is to crush the souls of workers.
