    Glad to see that Cards Against Humanity will be taking profits from their games sold in right wing states to an abortion fund.

    More baseless claims without evidence. Boy, don't you have a toy you can play with while the grown ups have a conversation?

    Well, they have voted in a two bit actor and a game show host for president. So questioning their intelligence is an biased idea.

    One congressional member took four tries to pass her GED before taking office. Another love screaming at people on the streets.

    So, yeah.

    There are three kinds of men. The one that learns by reading. The few who learn by observation. The rest of them have to pee on the electric fence for themselves.

    You are my toy, for the moment. Not being able to admit the flaws in your party certainly doesn't make you a grown up. Closing your eyes and screaming racist certainly doesn't make you a grown up. Not being able to reply to someone without trying to insult them certainly doesn't make you a grown up.

    You continue to prove yourself as a useless idiot in this forum.

    Some of the votes for the TV/movie guy for the second time. Don’t forget some folks were dumb enough to vote for Reagan and then again for Trump.

    Sadly, capitalism doesn’t get thrown around enough, and it is the root of many of America’s problems (not that it doesn’t have some upside).

    I think there is a case to be made that a lot of Americans are ignorant (whether educated or not).
    Nobody thinks…about anything…ever.

    I agree that ignorant doesn't mean racist but the inclusion of race into the statement doesn't help you at all. You should have stopped at ignorant -- although most rural people are not ignorant, in my experience. We are a group that uses ingenuity to fix problems.
    Edit:
    I live in a very diverse area. Many Hispanics, many Native Americans, a few Blacks. We all get along fine.

    100% agree. All parties have their fair share of ignorant, uneducated, and ignorantly educated people.

    You implied race. Not me.

    The rural south is very black, yet racist as hell. Being around diversity meana nothing if the environment setting is racist.

    All education does is allow you to grasp tools to learn yourself. To your point, uneducated stick within their wheelhouse, and tend to just clump into the environment around them. I saw this daily in TX, and LA when I lived there. Again, not all conservatives are uneducated, far from it in fact. But we know for a fact, that the Republican voter base has much less education, and especially quality formal education, than Democrats.

    Truth be told, with the world we live in, being ignorant and in rural America is not a bad gig if you are white either. Not my cup of tea, but it clearly works for a **** ton of people...
    Bold implies racism. Sorry, but if you didn't want to imply racism, you shouldn't have said it.
    Just stop. I'm sure you are not racist.
    And I agree that the rural South is quite racist -- on both sides.

    Admitting flaws in progressives has never, does not now, or will ever make up for the damage the GQP has done to this country. Your weak attempt to deflect attention away from the GQP hypocrisy and authoritarian ideology is laughable.

    If saying something along the lines of "but what about your side?" is the best you can do, then you've already entered a discussion you can't handle. The GQP doesn't care about you, your unborn child, your obsession with guns, your belief in a fairy tale guy in the sky, or anything else. They've played into you and your base's lack of critical thinking skills. They've played into your primitive desires to maintain power you never actually had. They have made the lowest white male feel like he is worth more than the highest black person. That makes you and your kind feel validated in your outdated beliefs. boebert, marjorie, gaetz, abbot, cruz, desantis, and the rest don't give two craps about you and your family. They will drop you, your unborn child, and your entire family if it meant they stay in power. The tangerine's stupidity blew the cover off the GQP to reveal how little they actually care about who votes for them.

    Because of your blind, thoughtless allegiance to these figures (not your country), you've proven to be part of the dumbest group of people in the history of mankind.

    That said, I'll bring us back on track by saying that no one should have a say over another person's body and their choice of what to do with it. If that's what you psychos want, then you should all have mandated vasectomies to rid the world of your tainted blood line.

    Hopefully you can stay on task in your next post...

    No party is perfect. You feel racism is tossed around too much, and many liberals think the Republican party has multiple viewpoints and platforms that are racist from it's core. They push voting restrictions, they want to ban any attempt for education to shift to talking about racism over time, they support the current police structure, support measures that have created the wealth and class gaps, despise muslims, want to make sure more immigrants (and their potentially Democratic votes) can't get into the country, and much more.

    Hell you guys elected a president who said things like:

    "Mexicans are criminals and rapists"
    called the covid virus "Chinese virus", and "Kung Flu"

    He has had episodes over the years such as:

    1973: The US Department of Justice — under the Nixon administration, out of all administrations — sued the Trump Management Corporation for violating the Fair Housing Act. Federal officials found evidence that Trump had refused to rent to Black tenants and lied to Black applicants about whether apartments were available, among other accusations. Trump said the federal government was trying to get him to rent to welfare recipients. In the aftermath, he signed an agreement in 1975 agreeing not to discriminate to renters of color without admitting to previous discrimination.
    1980s: Kip Brown, a former employee at Trump’s Castle, accused another one of Trump’s businesses of discrimination. “When Donald and Ivana came to the casino, the bosses would order all the black people off the floor,” Brown said. “It was the eighties, I was a teenager, but I remember it: They put us all in the back.”
    1989: In a controversial case that’s been characterized as a modern-day lynching, four Black teenagers and one Latino teenager — the “Central Park Five” — were accused of attacking and raping a jogger in New York City. Trump immediately took charge in the case, running an ad in local papers demanding, “BRING BACK THE DEATH PENALTY. BRING BACK OUR POLICE!” The teens’ convictions were later vacated after they spent seven to 13 years in prison, and the city paid $41 million in a settlement to the teens. But Trump in October 2016 said he still believes they’re guilty, despite the DNA evidence to the contrary.
    1991: A book by John O’Donnell, former president of Trump Plaza Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City, quoted Trump’s criticism of a Black accountant: “Black guys counting my money! I hate it. The only kind of people I want counting my money are short guys that wear yarmulkes every day. … I think that the guy is lazy. And it’s probably not his fault, because laziness is a trait in blacks. It really is, I believe that. It’s not anything they can control.” Trump later said in a 1997 Playboy interview that “the stuff O’Donnell wrote about me is probably true.”
    1992: The Trump Plaza Hotel and Casino had to pay a $200,000 fine because it transferred Black and women dealers off tables to accommodate a big-time gambler’s prejudices.
    1993: In congressional testimony, Trump said that some Native American reservations operating casinos shouldn’t be allowed because “they don’t look like Indians to me.”
    2000: In opposition to a casino proposed by the St. Regis Mohawk tribe, which he saw as a financial threat to his casinos in Atlantic City, Trump secretly ran a series of ads suggesting the tribe had a “record of criminal activity [that] is well documented.”
    2004: In season two of The Apprentice, Trump fired Kevin Allen, a Black contestant, for being overeducated. “You’re an unbelievably talented guy in terms of education, and you haven’t done anything,” Trump said on the show. “At some point you have to say, ‘That’s enough.’”
    2005: Trump publicly pitched what was essentially The Apprentice: White People vs. Black People. He said he “wasn’t particularly happy” with the most recent season of his show, so he was considering “an idea that is fairly controversial — creating a team of successful African Americans versus a team of successful whites. Whether people like that idea or not, it is somewhat reflective of our very vicious world.”
    2010: In 2010, there was a huge national controversy over the “Ground Zero Mosque” — a proposal to build a Muslim community center in Lower Manhattan, near the site of the 9/11 attacks. Trump opposed the project, calling it “insensitive,” and offered to buy out one of the investors in the project. On The Late Show With David Letterman, Trump argued, referring to Muslims, “Well, somebody’s blowing us up. Somebody’s blowing up buildings, and somebody’s doing lots of bad stuff.”
    2011: Trump played a big role in pushing false rumors that Obama — the country’s first Black president — was not born in the US. He claimed to send investigators to Hawaii to look into Obama’s birth certificate. Obama later released his birth certificate, calling Trump a “carnival barker.” The research has found a strong correlation between birtherism, as the conspiracy theory is called, and racism. But Trump has reportedly continued pushing this conspiracy theory in private.
    2011: While Trump suggested that Obama wasn’t born in the US, he also argued that maybe Obama wasn’t a good enough student to have gotten into Columbia or Harvard Law School, and demanded Obama release his university transcripts. Trump claimed, “I heard he was a terrible student. Terrible. How does a bad student go to Columbia and then to Harvard?”
    Not all Republicans are racists obviously. But if you support the republican party, you clearly place literally no priority on race relations. That in itself makes you an enabler for systematic racism at the very least.

    If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.

    no, it doesn't. It implies that if you were born white, in rural America, you likely had a nice, simple life. One that allows you to tuck yourself away from the world and not even understand reality for the masses, which frankly, might not be a terrible thing at an individual level.

    Being born white in the US, is an advantage beyond words. This is not a racist statement, in fact I am not sure you know what 'racist" means if you are willing to push this..

    The statement itself means, being born white in a simple environment in the US, is better than being born black, as blacks are born into a cycle of labor, poor education, poor living conditions, and minimal opportunity. Again, head to the south to see this. It's all over the place in the bible belt.
