The word sedition comes to mind. As a kid, I thought that was one of the words we didn't need in the USA.

I get pissed off with the "oh, he's so abusive and deceitful and tyrannical and destructive because he's mentally ill" shit.

This is like the white guy/black guy shooter dichotomy.

Re: Duncan Hunter (CA-50) and wife indicted for misuse of campaign funds

Interesting question. Since Gregg's comment and use of the phrase was bitingly sarcastic, it gave me wry smile. I had forgotten that the phrase was originally used as a compliment, and had to be reminded by a bit of googling (since Gregg did not use it as a compliment). So is the expression, in any ...

Re: Hijack this thread

The analogy of people with overeating addiction and alcoholics is a good one. Alcoholics say "I drink because I'm miserable and stressed." You ask why and the reason boils down to: because I drink to excess. I've heard obese people say the same thing about overeating. "It's the only thing that make...

New York Times Trump Needs a Target to Stay Interested in His Campaign. For Now, It’s Biden. So this means we can't run Biden, right, because "everybody" agrees that it's good for 45. The same way we can't impeach, because "it's a trap" and 45 wants it. The same way we can't run on universal health...

I'd go so far as to say that what 45 has done since the non-release of the Mueller report is far worse than anything he did before. Starting with escalating obstruction, as I understand it.
