Re: 2020 US Racial/Political Protests and Riots

Yeah, the irony of Rage Against the Machine fans licking the boots of the establishment to spite Trump's pretty fkn funny too.

Re: 2020 US Racial/Political Protests and Riots

The protesters running through our neighborhoods, calling everyone racists and hypocrites are right, in many senses. I completely disagree with this. Please explain how "everyone is racist"? This is where the far left loses me and most of America. This Robin DeAngelo, Ibram X. Kendi pushed narrativ...

Re: 2020 US Racial/Political Protests and Riots

Numbers from August aren't in yet, but July saw Portlands highest monthly homicide rate in 30 years, and almost triple the shootings from a year ago. Coincidently, Portlands Anti Gun Violence task force was dissolved at the beginning of July.

Re: 2020 US Racial/Political Protests and Riots

Doesn't the rioting/looting essentially render the protest/message ineffective? I'd honestly like to know how "peaceful protesting" is solving any problems right now. I'm not even sure I understand what they want, half of them probably don't know, they're out there yelling Death to America? Abolish ...

Re: 2020 US Racial/Political Protests and Riots

Blaming peaceful protestors because they simply won't go home seems to reward all the wrong people. Say you were a protester, and 9 out of every 10 nights you go out, someones buisness is looted, and 5-10 people are injured. But if you stay home, nothing happens. What are you going to do? It's just...

Utilize your police force and stop this rioting, how hard is it Wheeler? Stop the rioting, show some force, and you win the coming election :noclue: Why are you trying to appease a mob that hates you? Set a curfew, crack down, there's no legitimate reason for any protests to be happening in Portland...

Re: Presidential Debates 2020

So looking forward to these!

Still feel like there's more of a chance of Biden pulling out than the debates actually happening. Or at the very least it will be debate via video conference

Now that Trumps poll numbers are rising ... :hs: I've read he did not get a convention bounce? What are you referring to? Phrased that wrong,, Polls are showing Bidens inefficiancy (lack of a dnc bounce), rather than Trumps "numbers rising". Dems are in a death spiral... Saw a CNN headline today sa...

Re: 2020 US Racial/Political Protests and Riots

Now that Trumps poll numbers are rising maybe they'll try to contain this shit? :noclue:

Don Lemon was on the other night saying the riots must stop, followed directly with a statement about the polls. :jasper:

yeah, never mind the safety of civilized residents/business owners/tax payers.

The world will never be perfect. But believe it or not, its the best it's ever been. Truth! I'd urge anyone to check out "Enlightenment Now" by Steven Pinker. 2020/Covid aside, things are really the best theve ever been in practically every sense. In fact one of the only things that's gotten statis...

Unprovoked? :noclue:

In no way justifying what that idiot kid did, but if no one attacked him, no one would have died. That was a mob attacking a stupid kid who was holding an AR-15.

Did millennials miss the lesson about playing with fire? :sonny:

Re: NBA

Yeah, it'll be fine, no one literally thinks that the players will go broke. Not sure when the NBA will ever see ratings anywhere close to what they have in the past 10 years though. I wasn't targeting Lebron,, just organizations that use political correctness as a part of their marketing strategy. ...

Re: Democratic Presidential Campaign 2020

Plenty of people know Trump's a complete idiot, but will still vote for him because of the dems failure to provide someone worth voting for. This "anyone but Trump" campaign can easily come back to bite them in the ass. As of now I'd put my money on a Trump victory it's amazing how low this bar's be...
