A party devoid of honor and dignity

In a nation with only two parties, it is obscene that one party is now sewer scum willing take down half of the population with 'fuzzy' accusations. Men decreasingly reject marriage. They no longer can treat wonen with respect or kindness due to fear of accusations.

 

We have become the worst society known to man. The hate thy neighbor for the color and/or gender of their birth. We elect pols to stop this attack on our families and loved ones and still they quake in their shoes at the slightest lie put forth but maggots not fit to eat the dregs of our sewers. Until a few million of us march on Washington, we are ALL victims for dems and their attempted coup against us.

 

I am old enough to know life for what is. I know that evil can corrupt even the most principled individual. I know folks can and do make horrible decisions which crushes the soul of their victim.  I know that there are women who will lie about sexual assault. My face had to be repaired from the beating I took escaping one. It is a soul crushing assault on my kind to see it used to slime a person with OUT proof and for nothing more than a desire to rule over a nation.

 

We are fast becoming animals so vulgar, so degraded that we are devoid of honor and dignity.

Interesting post. Many people believe humanity is good at heart and the more we 'come together' (via government) that more 'good' that we'll do.
 
(This ignores the evil that lives inside everyone and how do you keep that in check?)
 
There are precedents for movements becoming cannibalistic, the Cultural Revolution in China, the Reign of Terror in France post Revolution. If the pattern plays out, when enough people have been ruined through accusation, rumor, terror; the society chooses a different way (or a dictator like Napoleon takes over).

I know - but rest assured Trump will not last forever and some morality will return after he's gone.
When the Repubs are trounced in the midterms it'll send a message of intent that the lies and nastiness are not fooling people.

Strass Luna-
First, there are many more than just 2 political parties in the US; without looking anything up, i can think of several - the Constitutionalist party, the Greens, the Libertarians, even the LaRouche party - not to mention the Socialist and Communist parties.  If you mean "only 2 that get MEDIA coverage," then yep; this is how they present to us the "illusion" of choice.  The Big money invests in both democans and republicrats so no matter who "wins," they'll have leverage.  Another reason they despise Trump so badly; they got no pull with him, no way to coerce or blackmail him.
 
More directly to your point, however, you're right; today's democrats have done some extremely dirty things, and have even publicly admitted that they don't give a fuck about due process or the presumption of innocence - well, when it's a Republican.  When Ellison gets busted beating his gf with FAR more credible evidence than has been presented about Kavanaugh, where are their cries to "believe the woman"?  Then there are the BJ Billy supporters...  So overall, what they're doing is exposing their own blatant hypocrisy, which will be good for republicans in the election in a bit over a month.
 
On top of all this, by their refusal to routinely and repeatedly condemn political violence, they have given their tacit approval for it, so all the blood and all the pain Antifa has inflicted will more than likely result in the permanent destruction of the democrats - well, that, and many of their members are calling for "socialism," a form of governance directly responsible for the torture and murder of well over a hundred million just in the 20th century alone....and since quite a few immigrants FLED from socialist countries to get here, there's no way in heaven or hell that anyone with more than a couple of brain cells to rub together will ever vote in their favor again...which, overall, is a Good Thing.
 
Lastly, i'm very sorry for the pain you had/have from the beating you took, and it is my sincere hope that the perp is currently rotting behind bars.  Oh, and that you sue the hell out of him, too(assuming it was a him).  FMO, women can also be pretty vicious, though not usually with fists and feet.

For all intents and purposes there are only 2 parties, especially in a national election.  You have a binary choice.  Any other vote is the same as not voting.  When I did a write in for president in 2016 I knew my vote was meaningless, but I couldn't vote for either candidate so I did a write in rather than leaving it blank.

Today's democrats?  The entire history of their party is based on dirty things, from slavery to segregation to KKK to Jim Crow to legalizing concentration camps due to race to mass genocide of indigenous population to antifa to BLM and on and on and on.  Let's not forget the "Lion of the Senate" who left a woman to die in a car accident and colluded with USSR to take down a presidential candidate (sound familiar?) (Ted Kennedy), or the longest serving senator who was the Grand Kleagle of the KKK (Robert Byrd)or heck, the greatest scandal in American histor - the domestic spying on US Citizens (Obama) to the soft coup going on today to take down a legitimately elected president.

I think America under Trump has sunk to the lowest it's been since its despicable treatment of lies, cruelty and genocide meted out against the Native Americans. That's saying something.
Morality has gone out the window. Tribalism rules.
I'm glad I don't live there. If this forum is anything to go by there isn't any common sense or rationality left. It's a lawless nest of vicious vipers all feeding off fake news powered by cynical lying internet sites.

Sorry to hear of your ordeal and curious to see that your political affiliation would cast asunder the revelation of another woman who reported a near rape. 
 
Still, you must understand that the current situation is informed by the choice we made when we became Americans. One thing that was also adopted was celebrity worship as opposed to royalty worship. However, as quick as we elevate a celebrity, we would likewise tear them down. We love such scandal.

What you describe Luna is that America is a Failed state. There is no longer any likemindedness. No society can survive without likemindedness. Moreover, there are forces in this land that want a war between men and women. It is about crushing patriarchy and that means emasculating men. That is the program!  The program is to destroy and emasculate European men. They are succeeding.

Then why not list "Obama's tactic of division and hate."  It's your people that want to ensure "those people" can't be in the US, or, if black, bowing scraping and begging for anything.  The Good News for you and your cryptofascist buddies, is Bill Cosby was convicted.  Quick, put him forward for St Bret's seat on SCOTUS, he's already a convicted rapist, so you KNOW how women must have lied so we can get past that and focus on Cosby's character, eh?

What we see happening with the Democrats is a national disgrace and an insult to all genuine sexual abuse suffers out there.  In no way should Ford's account be equated to rape, even if the charges were true.  I just hope it backfires on the Democrats in the mid-terms.  That is the only thing that will cause them to change. 
Ken Added Sep 25, 2018 - 8:56pm

actually, no, I didn't, but they are campaign rallies. That happens on both sides.  It is not endemic to Trump.  What has he done since he won the election?
 
Lock Her Up Lock her Up!!!  They were like Nazi hate fests!
 
Again, during the campaign, but a large portion of Americans believe she should be in prison.  The law says she should be in prison.  It took a fixed FBI investigation for her not to be.

Didn't you hear him address the police federation and tell them to rough up the people they were arresting?
 
Again, no I didn't, you will have to show evidence and give context.

Didn't you hear the language used to describe immigrants?
 
He has said nothing negative about immigrants.  He said some illegals were rapists and murderers.  SOME ARE!

Didn't you hear him exhorting his thugs to beat the shit out of protestors?
 
Again, no I didn't, but again, please show evidence.  The only even similar thing to what you are referencing that I am aware of was at a rally where he volunteered to pay legal bills of people trying to attend that rally if they got in a fight with the protestors. 

My god you must be blind, deaf or brainwashed!
 
My god, you must be blind, deaf, AND brainwashed
 
None of that rises even close to the level of Obama divisive tactics.
 
"Republicans want you to have dirty air and water"
"Republicans want to push granny off the cliff and kill her"
"The police acted stupidly"
"Treyvon Martin could have been my son"
"BLM have a legitimate grievance"
"Republicans are the enemy"
 
And don't forget the classic
And it's not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy toward people who aren't like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.
 
There are dozens more I could name, those are just a few off the top of my head.

Strass, I sincerely hope that you recover from your troubles, and hopefully the law will treat the scumbag who hurt you with all of the brutality he showed you. The supreme court has become a political battleground, with the Dems politicizing it. There are statutes of limitations for a reason. If the person who is making the accusations is not telling the truth, they still will not face any consequences. I have heard of people whose careers were ruined by witnesses who later recanted their testimony, again, without consequences. The present attack on the nominated justice is a clever ploy, because, true or not, and if proven untrue, the damage will be done. We have allowed people to smear reputations without consequences in political ploys. This has become the political game, where facts that cannot be proven under any legal definition become "he said, she said."
Thomas Sutrina Added Sep 25, 2018 - 10:24pm
First of all She didn't say which party.  So maybe both or one of the two.  Some of the comments above showed predigest towards one party or another. 
 
Trump if you have noticed was a democrat for decades and only when he decided that both parties were destroying the nation has he acted.   He chose the GOP because they are inept.   
 
The GOP serve at the pleasure of the corporations that are international.  The American free market capitalism is not their friend.   Cheap labor and the creation of special interest barriers by a leviathan bureaucracy serves the interest of the global corporations.  They want a class society because it protects inheritance.   
 
The Democrats from the beginning believe in a class society.  They started out as the party of farmers and the corporate interests of farms were the slave holders.  Slavery is by definition a society of classes.  It is obvious that the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution that implements the principles call for a classless society.  Now please understand that the class created by slavery was a legal defined class enforced by government.   England monarch is also a class society enforced by the government.   This is the type of class rejected by the declaration.  Wealth will create classes but the government should not prevent the 'pursuit of happiness'  by class barriers.  The Democrat party has been following the tactics of Fabian Socialism, Saul Alinsky put out the bible 'Rules for Raticals'.  Wilson was the first president that call for the scrapping of the constitution.   
 
The reason for the discussing actions outlined by the author is the result of the two above groups seeing that these action move their objectives forward.  I am not saying that their are not smaller parties and branches of the two parties that support these actions.  But they are few in numbers.
 
History has shown that the same situation existed in 1852 concerning ending the class society for slavery.  We shall see if the American people have had enough to step up to the face the problem.

You would suspect wrong.  I used to watch it all the time, but stopped watching it about 2 years ago when it was all Trump all the time, especially in the primaries.
 
However, that said, even if I did watch FOX all the time, why should that be something to be defensive about?  It is more balanced than virtually any other news you can watch.
 
Fox has many liberal commentators and journalists (Shep Smith, for example).  Name a conservative on CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, NBC, etc?
 
you are simply feeding your thirst for someone to validate your beliefs.  Are you completely incapable of critical thought?
 
Even the video you link is CNN showing NO context and much of what he is saying is taken out of context.  But hey!  I bet the fully debunked Ferenheit 9/11 and even more "An inconvenient Truth" are your bibles, right?

Ken - I'm amazed that you think that Obama's language in any way comes close to the emotional ranting and tub thumping of the naked hatred generated by Trump. Obama was an eloquent view of what I believe to be quite near to the truth. Trump's was a visceral attempt to rouse hatred and division. One was intellectual the other emotional. One was aimed at arousing intellectual disgust and the other a much more primitive force.
You might not like Obama and what he stands for. You might not like what he said and it might make you angry but that is a million miles away from a deliberate ploy to generate outright hatred and rouse crowds to violence. That's what Trump did.
I suggest you go and look at the footage. I bet it's on youtube. Reminded me of Nazi rallies and rampages against Jews.

Amazing here we have men arguing the merits of what Luna said against their belief system--which castigates the lowlifes of society, and apart from myself and Jeff, none responded to a significant point in her post. She revealed her ordeal with rape.  In fact, Michael was in Jekyll and Hyde mode by apparently rudely asking her sex. Given Luna has not shown up to respond to responders, perhaps Michael is the wise one amongst us for ferreting out this red meat baiter. Still, we must see the multiple levels in communication and as the biblical story revealed, the soldiers chosen for battle were the ones who lapped the water like a dog, Luna could have been testing the waters to see who here is sensitive enough for her to court as a possible man-husband-or whatever.

Thanks for taking your precious time to share with us. I would say hate is too strong a word/emotion to entertain while pursuing good health. Perhaps if you modified your usage of hate to "respectfully disagree," a lightness would come over you as you see rabid dogs/donkeys eat from your hands.

I cannot for the life of me determine why a reasonable person would ascribe it to bigotry. Please provide me with the definition of bigotry you are using.

with the opinions Vladimir Putin and former French President Nicolas Sarkozy voiced of the former professional cocksucker.)
And when you talk of the hatred Trump has spread in his presidency are you not letting your visceral hatred of Trump cloud your judement of his presidency as you glibly blame him for the state the nation was in when he took over from Obama - who typically has not faded into the background as protocol demands but continues to spread hatred and division in support of the Democrats efforts to undermine everything Trump does.

You do call people racist on a regular basic, me multiple times and as you say based on nothing but you own opinion. 
 
As far as cutting and pasting.  I do not claim to be an expert.  And I do not have the experiences of being black.  You Dr to my knowledge are the only person on WB to specify a title that implies expert.  I guess that the Dr. is in education.  But the subject of the discussions often are economic in nature, which means you are not an expert but that is not the typical impression taken.   So to counter that impression I found true economic 'black experts.'  I rally do not care if you do not like my approach.

Their previous champion was Hillary, who just might have been their worst chance of beating Trump since so much of the public hated her before she even put her name on the ballot.
 
The biggest Democratic problems are that they don't understand why Trump's presidency has been so successful with the economy and employment, or why that makes so many people think he's been good for the country despite all his obvious social faults.
 
Every day they get up and read gloom and doom blogs from their favorite networks predicting EVERYTHING Trump does will end in failure, and they never notice that none of those predictions come true.

Luna, hard core Democrats don't even admit that the US is prospering economically and with good employment right now, they only focus on their favorite network blogs that continue to predict gloom and doom.  They think we were all doing better when Obama was in office.
 
They have and always will hate anyone that opposes them on any level, so their votes are not going to change.  The hard core right are not any different, so the next election will be up to those who are generally not that partisan and have more open minds. 
 
Unfortunately the largest factor on both sides is how many of their voters will be motivated enough to vote.  Those who did not vote could have easily pushed the last election, and likely the next one, in either direction just by showing up.

If you want to be a little bit more conservative drop 8M from both parties and put them in if it isn't raining they will vote for the X party.

A party devoid of honor and dignity
 
Contrary to the popular myth . . . there is no honor among thieves.
Democrats commit crimes 2:1 (both violent and non-violent) over Republicans.  This statistic should be enough to convince most.

In a universe with a just god there would be the bloodied pulp dripping from the end of a ball bat where DiFi and Dickhole Durbin's heads used to be.

True dat TBH. 
Very few things make me weep these days.  However, watching Kavanaugh break down today talking about how his daughter prayed for Ford -- I lost it.  There was only one victim on the stand today.
The Burghal Hidage Added Sep 27, 2018 - 9:27pm
Do you know Durbin's story? This guy is a real USDA certified piece of shit.  The family was a rags to riches and back to rags story. The old man built up a farming and freight implement company, highly successful, had great brand loyalty. He passes on and the kids with their in laws came in and picked the place clean until the company was no more. This prick would pimp his own mother

I did not. 
 
I don't give a shit what these bozos do to their own legacy.  However, they sure as hell are intent to do the same thing to America and "pick the place clean".   Good background and thanks TBH.

Why is that Dr. Green?  I can think of no situation where watching a person cry would drive me to anger . . . unless you equate crying with weakness.  Anger is weaponized fear.  What are you afraid of Dr?
The Burghal Hidage Added Sep 28, 2018 - 1:20pm
You may ( and I may too? ) misunderstand the Doc, William.  I think his anger is at what they were trying to do to the man
Spartacus Added Sep 28, 2018 - 1:44pm
You may be right TBH.  The good Dr Green may be feeling exactly the same thing most Americans felt. 
I surely felt this anger too.  My fear is understanding that if the Democrats ever had any political power again, any forms of justice would be 100% based on politics -- exactly why they call it "politically correct".

I was driven to anger when a group of men drove a young lady to tears.  They were brutal.  And this was in an academic setting.  This was at a time when there were very few women in technical fields.

Here is the new modus operandi for American men in the military, cry the enemy into submission. I am not into that teary shit. I have taken many a whupping and laugh and moved on. Still, all that good, bad, weeping, antagonistic, bombastic display from the judge seem antithetical to the persona of a true judge, but the action of one that will, by all means, necessary try to get a seat on the bench. Such a quest does not give concern about wife or child. Chelsea Clinton lived through it because their parents craved power. Even if a lie, we cannot have an accused rapist sitting on the court. Investigate and lock up the accuser if unfounded.

If you say Stress lunatic "has me on the ropes," okay, Dr. Green.  So we got another angry rightists here, foaming at the mouth over those "awful dems, " she says she hates, but spares no hate for her R, now T buddies, Stress lunatic needs an enema and very long hike with a heavy pack.  And where did "Chelsea Clinton 'live through it' because their parents craved power."  Lived through It?  You been drinking Geeho R's kool aid, Dr?  Obviously.

Exactly why we need to make the tax cuts permanent and codify the deregulations into law.
 
Am I mistaken?  I thought that the new laws governing estate taxes and the lowering of the corporate and capitalist gains taxes already were made permanent until such time as a new congress undoes them. 
 
Just a crazy idea here.  How about we let the cuts to capital gains taxes and other corporate taxes expire and instead of letting cuts to us ordinary 1040 people expire in seven years, make those cuts permanent.
 
One word of clarification here.  The Great Republican Tax Heist of 2017 in no weigh reduced the assessed taxes on middle class Americans and working poor.  The only thing that happened was that personal exemptions were sacrificed in order to double the standard deduction.  Of course this is a de facto tax cut.  But you get my meaning.  Most Americans will only save several hundred dollars per year and that for only eight years.  The fat cat tax cuts are already permanent.
Ken Added Sep 29, 2018 - 6:12am
Yes, you are mistaken. The Senate can only once per fiscal year do what they did, and when they do that, it is temporary, not permanent.
 
90% of americans, taxpaying or otherwise gained tax relief from that bill.  What was the great "tas heist"?
 
Your statement is a flat out lie.

Despite the numerous parties that may be present, there are only two that are prevalent and for all intents and purposes, are merely different sides of the same coin ... all spend the same. Of the government, by the government and for the government.
