    There's a fairly consistent pattern here, where you don't accept that some subclass of crappy behaviour should actually be considered a real problem until you get it done to you.
    Also fairly consistent, that you and others here think engaging in those behaviors to anyone right of them is justifiable and should be encouraged. Civility is not a thing when it comes to folks you disagree with politically. You have all made that very clear.

    We just had a poster call (not ironically IMO, given how often he does it) for literal mass hangings of anyone who supports smaller government. And another, one of our resident unironic Communists, who openly supports discrimination, racism and sexism and ageism because older white males apparently all deserve it, because apparently we're all to blame for every single social ill today and ever.

    Stereotyping "those people" you so clearly hate is ok when it's you folks who do it.

    And this place loves it all. It never calls them out. But I dismiss a few of you kids once in a while when you're talking out your asses, and I'm the worst thing on FHC. Well, to be fair, the worst thing left outside the diminishing circle jerk of far-leftists on this now mostly dead forum.

    Honestly, I wish you all get exactly the kind of government you all pretty much seem to want. Good luck, and god speed!

    P.S. Save the insults, I've been coming here materially less and less, for good reason, and I think I've had my fill finally.

    Good luck with the Revolution!

    Has the Alistair Parliament finally agreed to leave FHC?

    Pretty sure that's not what they're saying, but ok.

    And we need to start treating them like the domestic enemies they are...
    So what should that treatment be then?
    I'm pretty sure that's exactly what they are saying. I can tell from watching 20 years of their treasonous, Anti-American actions and words.

    How we should treat them? Well. I've always advocated for direct, teachable moments, but I suppose a mass hanging on the national mall is probably better than most of these cunts deserve.
    Again, go ahead then. Teach them a lesson. Stop typing, walk out that door and start stringing them up.

    And again, you wont. You wont do jack fuckin shit so just stop typing like you would.

    Well of course they did, and I think I made my opinion on W's war(s) p. clear a few pages back. But W didn't need the 2nd Iraq War to boost his political fortunes, he was already riding high off of 9/11. He decided to cash in those high poll numbers to fulfill his own and basically the entire Neocon Establishment's decade-old wet dream of deposing Hussein, which is exactly the opposite of what Trump did with Zelenskyy - dangling the prospect that he would be overrun by Russian tanks unless he helped improve Trumps domestic political situation.

    So if we broaden it out then yes, every president makes decisions on foreign policy while considering how those decisions will impact their own politics, and sometimes that comes right up to the line of being a shakedown (something Republican presidents seem uniquely prone too for some reason that I'm sure is just a total coincidence). But Trump's blatant, naked quid pro quo for something that was only of personal benefit to himself, in the face of aggression from a hostile foreign power that he seems disturbingly aligned with, and his sidelining of the levers of actual diplomacy in favor of his personal fixers Giuliani and Barr, is why this stands out as an abuse of power and not just "politics as normal."

    Wait, how did that double post only include the quote on one post? This is getting odd.

    Siri, and similar services. They’re actually quite easy to trigger accidentally, I’ve done some fucking around and found that if I talk about returning someone’s phone call enough, my iPhone will sometimes call back the last number I spoke with. This explains the journalist who’d spoken with Rudy that night getting a call from him mid-conversation.

    “Butt-dial” is a holdover from the long-ago when mobile phones had buttons.

    These folks don’t think to secure their phones before having sensitive discussions.

    Google Assistant is also quite hyperactive. Anytime you say OK it activates waiting for you to say OK Google.

    But since it's the US, it's Siri.

    I don't really know where to start. So I'll keep it to one issue I have with that sentence.

    "anyone who supports smaller government" and racists is now synonymous? Because I'm fairly certain that Erich's comments were aimed at racists.

    For someone who complains about the way people here argue, you aren't showing yourself to be better.

    Or does "anyone who supports smaller government" equal racist in your mind? I wouldn't think so and I do wholeheartedly hope and believe it doesn't. Which makes this all the more aggravating.

    Also historically speaking, racists were never champions for smaller governments.

    Global warming will unfairly target the planet's most oppressed demographic, conservative white males born between 1955 and 1970. Yet another horror they will be required to endure. Wind turbines will blot their previously unblemished views of the horizon, their lawns will wilt under the unrelenting sun while they are punished with draconian hosepipe bans, their dodge pick up trucks will be taxed into oblivion and they will have to find a way to fit their golf clubs into the boot of a Nissan leaf.

    The problem with 'smaller government' in the US, is that it is a dog-whistle term for 'no government', particularly for any social programme (it's fine to have big government for the military obviously).

    And it works very well, and has done so for decades really (ever since saint Reagan said that 'government is the problem' really), because who really wants 'big government'?

    Big governments, or big government agencies, are wasteful and inefficient, and no one, in their right mind, will want to create some sort of Kafkaesque institution.

    Ofcourse, the problem is, that, especially the wingnuts so apparently opposed to 'big government' have, actually, created exactly those Kafkaesque institutions all over the place.

    What else can you call the department of homeland security.

    So now we're in the situation that if someone calls for 'small government' he could be a wingnut calling for the abolition of all social programmes or (arguably with a bit of stretch) for the abolition of massive Kafkaesque institutions like the department of homeland security.

    And the Republicans rub their hands, because this is exactly the sort of thing they're good at: twisting language so they can do whatever the hell they want, and no one can argue against it. 'Big government' is one of their success stories.

    Here's the rub for the Republicans though: it doesn't work very well with Trump. Who, for all his idioticy, he does call a spade a spade. He says the quiet bit out loud, and is just too stupid to play this game.

    Compared to 'big government', 'fake news' (a Trump invention) is a massive failure, that not even the Republican wordsmiths have been able to make work for them.
