    Wasn't expecting the Senate to gain as much as it did. I was betting 228 D in the House, 52 R in the Senate. I like that Cruz and Scott made it since the media was particularly keen on their heads.

    If we needed any more proof being retarded won't hurt election chances, Ocasio's election should seal it.

    sure, but the point here is that no one should ever make jokes about the war because it's a war...which is dumb

    yes, exactly

    imagine davidson being this upset because someone made a 9-11 joke at the expense of him. jokes are fair game, you don't like it, whatever. but controlling the larger body of speech because it's a special case is stupid

    Trump was hardly doing anything even when he controlled both chambers. His whole goal seems to be making everything a "me vs the world" argument, which is going to drag as he continues to fail to deliver on promises. I think his main fear right now is going down in history as a one-term president. Repubs technically still have the House until mid-January; if they push the border wall bill and other similar measures through, and then use their 57 seat Senate (+ 3 Dems to switch) to overcome the filibuster, I'll be impressed, but I doubt they care.

    With all of the right wing terrorism going on in this country, you might be right.

    >Implying that a number of people who perpetrated mass shootings weren't registered Democrats.

    Are those people technically left wing terrorists?

    At a rate of like 2 murders per year, I think the odds of Sanders being one of the chosen victims isn't too likely.

    If it’s not a politically motivated crime, then it’s not terorism, obviously.

    Democrats would have to be left wing to be left wing terrorists.

    i dont know if you had trouble reading what i said or just couldn't process it for some reason, but i clearly said YOU CAN SAY WHATEVER YOU WANT IN THIS COUNTRY, that doesn't stop it from being completely tasteless and making you look like a complete shitbag.

    oh shit i didnt know they're not or someone said they shouldn't be.

    i find it ironic that he would say something like that after the fact that antifa and other foaming at the mouth liberals have been literally terrorizing this country for the past few years. It's amazing how separated from reality some people truly are.

    oh so does that mean I WAS SPEAKING OUT OF MY ASS AND SAYING SOMETHING THAT YOU STATED IN YOUR FIRST POST?

    Imagine if davidson didnt care or wasnt upset if someone singled out his fathers death and made fun of it. hurdurdur, do you even think for a second before posting some of this nonsense? And the funniest part is that this is coming from guys that get buttrammed after a few words on the internet. You guys have literally reported me before "for words" and should be the last people here to talk about "controlling free speech", which btw had literally nothing to do with what i was saying .....

    i find it funny that some people here (you and especially some of the clueless foreigners here who constantly fantasize about our political system)automatically related everything that is being spoken to politics. "HEY I'M HUMAN TRASH. WHY? BECAUSE THE POLITICAL GAME ALLOWS IT!!!!" ok sure, no one said you're not allowed to say what you want or that you cant be that piece of garbage that you are striving so hard to be. btw that's a generalization, and not about anyone in particular.
