      I am always fascinated by the outrage when the McDonalds ice cream machine is down.

          You are making this too personal. Should probably take the day and go to your safe space. Sure I probably made a comment many moons ago about minimum wage or something and referenced how college kids these days dont know how to put a chain on a bike or even ride a bike. I just don't see how that has anything to do with this conversation. If you are insinuating that I sit in my little sporting goods store and yell at my staff you obviously dont know enough about me to make things personal. I also grow hemp and have enough to send some up to Toronto, CBD has been known to help with anger management. CBD has also been know to help with blood flow so on those blitering cold days you can swing your dick around a little easier.
          It's a warm -6C up here, which is warmer than usual.

          I mean, you said it's telling the wokies have nothing better than to wake up early to complain? That is making things personal lol, I have no problem if you want to come after my efficiency - just don't get upset when we have a snappy reply. NoDak can deal it and take it. No problem being called a commie/wokie/bleeding heart, comes with the territory.

          CBD is king, I have a couple pens I use during the day.

            • All of these posts should be in the politics thread, yet they keep getting posted in the Trump thread. Is it separation anxiety? An actual deep love and admiration for Trump you don't want to admit? I wish Freud was still alive so he could enlighten me.

                      Seriously. It’s not hard. Trump’s entire ploy during his time as president was literally taken out of the Fascists Idiot Guide to Consolidating Power. Luckily our democracy, as fragile as it apparently is survived the first stress test. I am less sure this happen the next time right wing coup takes place as it will likely be more cohesive and intelligently done. They came real fucking close to succeeding though.

                      These other countries dont have the history or democratic infrastructure to easily survive. These methods are well known and not new.

                        Gary Kasperov is an interesting dude. Clearly smart, Chess Grandmaster. From looking at his Wikipedia page, I agree with a lot of his geo-political stuff. Much respect.

                        But to claim the clowns in Burma have adopted Trump tactics is absurd. This stuff is SOP around the world for decades.

                          Yeah, Kasparov's definitely an interesting guy. IQ in the 190's and maybe the best chess player in history. Unlike the stereotypical super-genius, he's anything but nerdy and monomaniacal. He can be very funny and charming (and sometimes an arrogant horse's ass), is quite knowledgeable about almost everything, and was a favorite guest of Letterman. OTOH, he's hard to figure out politically. He's an odd mixture of ideas. Mostly conservative, but definitely got some Libertarian and far left ideas mixed in. He's strongly anti-authoritarian. Hates Putin with a passion! Putin had him arrested and jailed for a bit.
                          Winners see success and want to climb up to its level. Losers see success and want to drag it down to their own.

                              I disagree on it coming close to succeeding and I disagree that it was really a goal. I do understand and agree with the larger point.

                              I do agree on the bottom part fully. Look at eastern Europe. Look at South America. Look at Africa, the Middle East, Asia generally. This is just sorta how it goes in those places, for better or worse.

                                  I don’t want to get harangued on minutae but the fact is they got it into the building and there were many Congress people still in both chambers at the time. Both chambers were barricaded and if a cop hadnt had led them away they would have gotten to the Senate chamber. It was close. Too close and the intent was to stop the certification of the certification because that was the last legal hurdle in declaring Biden winner and was the point of no return for Trump becoming the official loser. Many were calling to Hang Pence and kill Pelosi and Schumer. There is very little to argue with here. There is video. There is evidence. Not believing is not an option. Not believing is just putting your head in the sand at what actually happened.

                                    You could be right but we will never know. I have always seen these idiots as those elementary kids that want to make it look they want to fight but totally expect someone to hold them back, with a few exceptions. Like when that women got shot I think people were unwittingly shocked it escalated to that point. Like when you see LeBron James talk shit and get in someones face then acts totally surprised when someone does swing at him. But then again there were some Dennis Rodmans and Ron Artests in that group that saw red and had bad intentions.

                                          If they somehow stopped the certification... it just would've happened later. I'm aware of what some of them were saying. That wasn't close to overthrowing the government.

                                          There is plenty to argue. Joe Biden won. He was going to end up as the President no matter what happened. No matter terrified you are of what happened, nothing those people were capable of doing was going to stop Joe Biden from becoming the President.

                                          Could there have been a bunch of bloodshed? Sure. But the idea that a hundred or a thousand or however many of those people with zip ties or guns or mace were going to keep Trump in the White House is just dumb. Coincidentally, the people who partook were pretty dumb as well, thinking that was going to accomplish anything.

                                          You can be horrified that people are willing to do and/or be prepared to do awful things without pretending they were close to achieving their goal. Because they weren't close. Biden won. He was going to get inaugurated.

                                            They do a good job keeping it light and keeping it fun, but also have some good takes and guests. Commentary podcast is a bit more high brow but also excellent.

                                                Relax, my friend. American politics is replete with instances of what seems like the ultimate example of someone going too far over the line, only to find that after a bit of time it fades from importance and effect, and is replaced by something even more outrageous. Regardless of what nonsense and bad behavior our elected officials engage in, both parties will, unfortunately, continue to have members elected to Congress and the White House.

                                                  Lol. I'm not pleased with what several of the state GOP parties are doing but this is pretty over the top, even for you.

                                                  That said, the typical GOP'ers at the state and local level who are reliable Red voters need to make an effort to make their voices heard. There is no benefit in letting inmates run the asylum.

                                                  That reminds me, I probably ought to make sure the ND folks are behaving. I havent heard anything but we got a few loons just like anywhere else.

                                                    The GOP has placed itself in a double bind. On one hand they have embraced a hardline ultra nationalist position on everything while at the same time pumping classical liberal economic theory and libertarianism. Those two things are diametrically opposed.

                                                    Itís the same playbook they clung to in a number of States that now solidly favor the Democratic Party.

                                                      Whatís over the top? They have clearly departed from anything resembling even Bush era republicanism and are definitely no where near Reagan. They have now publicly embraced the fascist, anti intellectual, and extremist part of their party while punishing the old guard for stepping out of line. The moderates are fleeing. I asked a few weeks earlier what the party was going to do and itís clear what path they are forging ahead on.

                                                        That's like me claiming that objectively shithole districts in Minneapolis, the Bronx, and Detroit show the Democrat party is a broken and antisemitic entity.

                                                        If your idea of the GOP is what f'ing WYOMING is thinking then you need to own goofy shit coming out of the extreme lib areas. I get it... you want to think you and others are bravely standing against fascism or whatever. You aren't. You are consistently overdramatic.

                                                        People in some state GOP positions are looney. In 2018, some dumb polls said 2/3 of Dems believed Russia changed votes on behalf of the Don. No serious person believed that. I dont recall you posting that Dems weren't a serious party then.

                                                        I get that you want to think you are taking a stand against fascism or whatever. Wyoming's GOP going nuts is small potatoes. If you were a serious person you'd have pointed at Arizona... but you didn't.

                                                        GOP has some work to do, no doubt. That's not debatable. But using WYOMING as your big evidence is weak at best.

                                                          Putting the Wyoming thing aside, saying the GOP is done is like saying ND's season is over if they lose the first game of the year.

                                                          DNC had to re-group after 2016, GOP needs to do the same before the next midterm cycle. A lot can change quickly in politics.
                                                          The yellow mustard pants are hideous and have to go.

                                                                    Yeah. I’ll give them the benefit of the doubt that they have not read any of my other posts since November. That’s being quite kind but trying to retort on one post as if it’s the WHOLE argument is funny and typical.

                                                                    I’m guessing the large number of GOP reps standing with MGT,the complicity of the GOP in whole in the BIG LIE and ultimately the insurrection and protection of Trump and his cronies, a Senate who won’t convict Trump, amongst all the other evidence means I’m being over dramatic about all of it. Lol. Again I guess I have to post all evidence in every post every time I post one thing. It’s like my one post is the totality of the point when in reality I’m just posting evidence after evidence after evidence in multiple posts meant to underline the Multiple lines of evidence available for consumption and understanding. Lol.

                                                                    You see in science and I’m a big fan of science there is a concept called converging lines of evidence. As far as truth goes when independent lines of evidence converge on a single result, that lends great credence to the result being able to be considered true. That is what is happening here. I get it some people here may not understand this concept which is why they think my single post about Wyoming means that is my entire argument on the GOPs current demise.
                                                                    n science and history, consilience (also convergence of evidence or concordance of evidence) is the principle that evidence from independent, unrelated sources can "converge" on strong conclusions. That is, when multiple sources of evidence are in agreement, the conclusion can be very strong even when none of the individual sources of evidence is significantly so on its own. Most established scientific knowledge is supported by a convergence of evidence: if not, the evidence is comparatively weak, and there will not likely be a strong scientific consensus.
                                                                    I have been on this board long enough to see all former Reagnites vote against Obama and the vote for Trump. I remember all those arguments against the Clintons and later Obama. Bush was still seen in the frame of Reagan and his policies. I’ve seen all their arguments try to fit into the Reagan box but that isn’t possible. Therefore the box has to shift to accommodate the reality that American republicans have now no moral authority, no moral majority, no fiscal conservatism, no liberal republicanism and and no democratic leg to stand on. I’m just here for the gymnastics. I give it a 8.0/10 so far.

                                                                    And yes North Dakota, I take the first insurrection to breach our Capitol very seriously. I want those responsible held accountable. Including the Trump and his enablers. I expect any American to hold the same values. I will not apologize for that.

                                                                                        Its likely started and maitained by a bunch of internet trolls but it is has reached Americans via MAGA and pro-trump anti intelligencistsas. It has also made it into Congress in the form of MGT and Boehbert so im sure you have seen all the crazy shit they say or have said. That is Q. It was pushed by Michael Flynn, Roger Stone, and Trump and his family.

                                                                                        All in all its pretty much a racist, anti-semetic, conspiracy theorist, trolling disinformation cult that is actively promoted by hard right MAGATs. These aren't lone wolf type individuals. There are a ton of them. If you look a the videos from the insurrection you find plenty of Q flags and shirts amongst the Proud Boys, Oath Keepers, and other domestic terrorist groups assaulting the Capitol.

                                                                                        A May 30, 2019, FBI "Intelligence Bulletin" memo from the Phoenix Field Office identified QAnon-driven extremists as a domestic terrorism threat. The document cited a number of arrests related to QAnon, some of which had not been publicized before.[173] According to the memo, "This is the first FBI product examining the threat from conspiracy theory-driven domestic extremists and provides a baseline for future intelligence products. ... The FBI assesses these conspiracy theories very likely will emerge, spread, and evolve in the modern information marketplace, occasionally driving both groups and individual extremists to carry out criminal or violent acts."[173][174]

                                                                                        According to FBI's counterterrorism director Michael G. McGarrity's testimony before Congress in May, the FBI divides domestic terrorism threats into four primary categories, "racially motivated violent extremism, anti-government/anti-authority extremism, animal rights/environmental extremism, and abortion extremism," which includes both pro-choice and anti-abortion extremists. The fringe conspiracy theory threat is closely related to the anti-government/anti-authority subject area.[173][174]

                                                                                        An under-reported QAnon-related incident was mentioned in the memo: the December 19, 2018, arrest of a California man whose car contained bomb-making materials he intended to use to "blow up a satanic temple monument" in the Springfield, Illinois, Capitol rotunda to "make Americans aware of Pizzagate and the New World Order, who were dismantling society." According to the same source, the FBI said another factor driving the intensity of this threat is "the uncovering of real conspiracies or cover-ups involving illegal, harmful, or unconstitutional activities by government officials or leading political figures."[173]

                                                                                        QAnon followers' reactions included the suggestion the memo was fake, calling for the firing of FBI director Christopher A. Wray for working against Trump, and the idea that the memo was actually a "wink-and-a-nod" way of attracting attention to QAnon and tricking the media into asking Trump about it.[175] At a Trump reelection rally several hours after the memo's existence became known, WalkAway campaign founder Brandon Straka, a gay man who claims to have been a liberal Democrat but is now a Trump supporter, addressed the crowd using one of QAnon's primary rallying cries, "Where we go one, we go all". A videographer found numerous QAnon supporters in the crowd, identified by their QAnon shirts showing large "Q"'s or "WWG1WGA".[36]

Its really crazy actually. Like legit insanity. It has nothing to do with shitposting. It started up on SM and exploded on FB, Twitter etc. FBI had labeled it a DT org. I dont have the time or effort to explain it to you which is why I posted the link. Regardless of how it stated, its a cult and its exclusively centered around Trump and MAGA. It is exclusively pushed by MAGA SM personas including Trump, Junior, Flynn and Stone. It has zero to do with Antifa or leftists or libtards. Their primary targets ARE leftisits.

                                                                                                The true believers think Q is a real person with inside knowledge and powers but in reality its likely a group of trolls who have managed to turn Q into a cult of personality. IT all started with the Pizzagate and child sex ring he claimed the Dems were in charge of. Surely you remember that?

He's too much of a lightning rod and we need a uniting voice with conservative liberty-minded principles. Anyone who thought Rudy and Lin Wood were a good idea can gracefully scoot to the back, IMHO.

This is the last link I will offer since its you who actually seemed like you were curious. From here you have the info you need to catch up or go further if you so choose.

                                                                                                    Its a legit real thing people should know and its a DT(domestic terror) threat defined by the FBI as such and its related to or tied with MAGA and DJT et al. Sorry there isnt anyway to "both sides" this answer but it is what it is.
