And Rand Pauls a staunch Republican, so I mean, you know if he's speaking out that there's gotta be some bullshit about it.

Fair enough. But I have been researching this shit hardcore over the past few months.

If you'd watch that Rand Paul clip, it's only 3 minutes. Then maybe we can just leave it at that. But you really should watch it, for your own knowledge.

Listen to Rand Paul... It's not such a crazy thing to believe that these reports don't pass the smell test.

I've seen that clip and I just watched it again.

I don't believe we should be in Syria whether Assad is using chemical weapons or not. However, again whether he did these attacks or not, he's committed serious civil rights abuses including torturing his own citizens, over years and years. He is not a good guy, nor a guy you should "take the word" of, nor a dictator that any democracy should be supporting. Or any "democracy" like Russia

breaking news: Donald Trump is the stupidest person in America. My country is now in direct violation of an international nuclear deal.

Hopefully gas gets to $5 a gallon and many, many angry folks converge at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. Going to be a bummer if you depend on a car for transportation.

Do you any of you guys follow the political analyst Candace Owens? She's an African-American lady and she's been exploding all over the web, partly because Kanye West has come out and endorsed her. She's super intelligent and eloquent and is super informed about how the world works. She used to be a spokeperson for anti-bullying activist and stuff. I think she's the type of analyst that can really bridge the gap between libertarians and the left-wing.

The first video is really her describing her story about how she used to be a liberal and what not. I have a lot in common with her in that regard. And below the interview are some of her more sensational pieces that have been super popular with political junkies.

I'm just the last one here beating the libertarian drum. I'm passionate about this stuff. I honestly believe we're on the cuff of a major paradigm shift in regards to world politics. One thing's for sure, liberal politics are failing and they're going to have to to reinvent their messaging in a hurry.

You look at at what's going on in Britain, the United States etc. It's a movement happening all over the world and it's exciting. You have people like Kanye West, Roseanne Barr and even to a lesser extent guys like Bill Maher coming out against the establishment politics. You can look no further than the establishment news sources... They're all crumbling to their demise while the independent journalists like Candace Owens are thriving right now.

What's worse is that there's this mindset that the differing opinions cannot even converse and coexist. We even see it here. It's not about looking for negative attention, it's about expressing what you feel in your heart is right. I know I'm gonna be on the right side of history with this, and there's going to be a major shift, and we'll see how the Democrats try to reinvent themselves before the 2020 election... If we can agree on one thing, it's that the liberals can't and wont run another campaign like they did in 2016, right?

But JJ you should listen to the points Candace is making, even if you disagree with some of it, she definitely has a lot of strong points.

And JJ, you gotta realize, Canadace Owens has exploded across the United States. She's a legitimate phenomenon right now and she's been the topic of discussion on the Democratic news stations in the United States and Canada. She's essentially the "it" girl in political coverage right now.

Kanye West pretty much opened the floodgates.


Here's Kanye and Candace featured on the biggest entertainment news show in America and Canada talking about the paradigm shift that I'm ranting and raving about.

I understand these are controversial subjects, and maybe her video about the Womens march was a little off-base, but it's hard to argue with the first 3 ITT

That Kanye video is something else though. Anyone else see it yet? I hadn't even seen it until today. I can't believe it didn't cause a bigger media sensation. Guy definitely has guts

yeah well negative attention is really all you're gonna get with shit like this. do you really think you'll convince anyone of even one of her points with this?

I don't know what to do with a situation like the current one where everything is so completely polarized and yes we do see it here, which I why I think it's not going to amount to anything to post this stuff here. I once saw a video of hers and it made me absolutely sick to my stomach - I couldn't be more on the complete opposite of everything she says, in such a way that I can only guess she does it simply for the attention. You use the term 'independent journalist' very loosely I suppose - as this is just someone who rants hateful shit in front of a camera. This was the one who said HELLO! EVERYONE HATES FEMINISTS! right? very eloquent indeed.

This exciting movement of populism, science deniers, misinformation, back to the fifties culture, xenophobia and nationalism and sometimes downright national socialism is definitely something we see everywhere. I'm sure it has a lot to do with the fear of terrorists and it's going very much the way terrorists would like to see it: more hate and more fear and people who are only proud of what's defined by borders and afraid of what's outside of it. Putin and Erdogan are nationalists, bordering on fascism, often crossing that border: putting all journalists, teachers and judges who even vaguely criticize the government in jail. Italy is going to be absolutely fucked, they apparently want Mussolini back. The extreme right is coming up in Germany again, with people having pride of what happened in WWII, Britain is getting absolutely fucked over with all kinds of investors / employers leaving London en masse, Poland and Hungary are getting absolutely terrifying; it goes on and on. How the fuck you think you're on the right side of history is beyond me.

Ugh what use is this anyway

then you truly are just a bad person. you have bad morals. your worldviews center people like yourself and fuck over people who are different than you. so if this is truly what you believe in your heart, you actually are no better than a nazi. Racism is not an acceptable, viable opinion to be respected and debated, it's a social disease to be crushed by any means necessary, and I guess that is actually the side you really feel is right in your heart, so you deserve whatever comes to you.

He fits right in, though. Was it him who got sentenced to death for buddying up with subversive socialists, got pardoned and sent to a Siberian prison camp, and came back as Christian and anti-socialist?

Notes from underground is still my favorite.

speaking of slog, I usually end up asking what favorite originally German books people have, and it doesn't change, the most frequent answer is The Man without Qualities, Robert Musil.

The one fucking book where I tried several times over the years, and can't get through even a third of this monstrosity. My conclusion is that people are fucking liars, they haven't actually read the 1700 pages of this thing.

recognizing you've been given a helping hand in life in this current point in time by being born white is not white guilt
