I agree. I said this at the time and nothing has changed my mind since. Obama would have run for VP and helped draw the huge AA vote. Those 4 years could have given him time to develop the kind of skills he lacked (negotiating, maybe getting tough in an effective way). And then he could have run in his own right.

R82 I like your style. I was planning on referencing athletics or sport earlier, and you've given me the courage to do so now. I think more gay men ought to try finding a sport they enjoy. It's much easier to stay in shape playing a game you love than solely relying on the gym. It's an unbeatable way to make life long friends as well. Even if you lack the physical drive, or are not the competitive type, you can really expand your social life as an enthusiast or spectator as well.

If you lack enthusiasm for anything competitive, swim, kayak, learn to sail, or go hiking and camping. The sporting life is healthy, and you can meet some new people at the same time.

A president publicly supports pieces of legislation that reflect his administration’s policies and he works with Senators and Congressmen to get such legislation passed.

For example, President Obama addressed a joint session of Congress in September 2009 to announce his intention of working with legislators to pass healthcare reform, which he successfully did when the ACA became law in 2010. (You may remember this speech for the outburst by Republican Rep Joe Wilson who shouted “You lie!” at the President.)

Sorry r112 but Black people are more assimilated into white culture than most other minorities. Asians largely stay within their own community as do Hispanics/Latinos.

The problem Black people have is that they try to be a part of white culture, and are in fact heavily part of pop culture but white people only want to take from Black culture what can be monetized and ignore the Black community in general.

If white power structure would put money into the poor Black community with better education and making neighborhoods safer you would see more assimilation, less crime, less violence.

I have a close family member who supports Trump and his ilk; despite all the destruction and malfeasance he has wrought on the country. It would take voluminous posts to describe our conversations and interactions. This person is/was intelligent, not stupid. And not previously cruel. But I am dumbfounded by their attraction to this monstrous man.

While certainly nothing is black or white, I have found very little light emanating from DJT. He seems a populist sociopath who seems to appeal to lower, BASEr instincts. And he has stirred great emotion in people, appealing not to their logic or higher selves. But instead forming a cult-like-group-think mentality about him.

For some reason this appeals to a portion of the American populace. And these folks may truly be living in a certain completely different reality where their level of consciousness does not permit them as much access to things like compassion, empathy, community, understanding, integrity, morality, decency, ethics and the like.

They move into white areas because Black neighborhoods aren't protected, that's why crime can thrive in them. If you are doing better than everyone else in your neighborhood it makes you a target.

In keeping with the puritanical origins of the USA, poverty is seen as “ungodly” or a “deficit”. And “hard work” (rather than wise or smart work) virtuous.

Religion (primarily Christianity, but other religions too) is subtly intervoven into the fabric of the USA; even in those who profess not to ascribe to any type of religion. The work values associated in this country as described above, the idea that “hard work” equates to freedom here, that poverty is ignoble and that domination via authoritarian repercussions (whether in families, by employers, law enforcement, different subgroups/races, politicians, etc. are part of most religious heritages and deeply embedded in the secular existence of the country.

The US is enthralled with capitalism and very fearful of any type of other system (i.e. the terrible “socialism”). Unfortunately we are in the throes of end-stage capitalism where extremes of economic realities exist and collide: the very rich and poor with a shrinking middle. And the awful “socialism” is alive and well in the US, but rarely discussed: corporate socialism and socialism for the very wealthy (Ben Carson’s recent medical socialistic treatment for Covid comes to mind, while ironically this doctor was preventing support for his fellow citizens at HUD. Telling them they “need to pull themselves up by their bootstraps”.)

Imagine telling Ben Carson he “needed to pull himself up by his Covid bootstraps” and not receive the very expensive/specialty treatment that Trump also received for the virus. Carson creepy admits he would have died - as many in this country without his “socialistic” medical care - have already done.

Greed and corruption appear to be rife in the US government. And much of the system seems broken.

The country....the planet....even will break down further if significant changes are not made.

White liberals are the world's greatest virtue-signalling hypocrites, cherishing the same absurd reductionist ideas about everyone who isn't them, that they accues others of cherishing about minorities. Most of them continue to live in mostly white upscale areas where they can send their kids to the best schools. They put BLM signs on the front lawn and vote Democratic, but they wouldn't dream of moving into a less upscale but more mixed area where their kids will have to go to inferior state (public) schools.

China is a massive threat to the West and most people are 1) too busy with the culture wars and bawling about abortion, immigration, trans rights, and the Trump Psycho Show to address anything as huge and boring as the way things are shaping up geopolitically re China, and/or 2) are too stupid to grasp the enormity of the danger.

China is one of the few things Trump was right about, only it seems to take a psychopath to be willing to clash about it. Biden won't I assure you.

The air will clear a bit under Biden and the benefits will be how the virus is handled and the eventual exit of the psychotic political shitshow Trump generates . . . but essentially little will change, because the underlying increasing income inequality is entrenched in money and politics, which neither the Democrats nor the Republicans have either the will or the desire to root out.

You know, the origin of the term "movie stars" is based upon the act of having to look up at them on an elevated screen just like we look at stars in the sky.

Africans were still throwing spears at lions 300 years after Oxford and Cambridge universities were founded, the Industrial Revolution, the Enlightenment, and the mathematical and technical and artistic advances of the Middle and Far East.

No correlation between ignorant snark and protection against CoViD-19 exists.

People doing more and different strategies from what public health agencies suggest are not at increased risk of dying from the coronavirus, when their practices include limiting their risk of developing the co-morbidities (e.g heart disease, diabetes, cancer) that speed an infected person into the grave.

Mockery of those who share what doctors learned treating CoViD-19 patients is not a magic talisman against the virus. Mockery comes across as ignorance. Challenge & ask for citations instead of presenting yourself as a nasty-tempered buffoon.

I agree r316. A company that I used to work for was a pioneer in educational software. Not Oregon trail or star math (although the star programs ripped off our classroom evaluation methods).

But we had one course called “essential skills for living and working” or something like that. Back then, only the worst schools got our systems because of how expensive they were and those schools got big time federal funds.

The course taught things like making a budget, balancing a checkbook, getting a job, etc.... it was common for parents to request the workbooks for themselves. My region would always order more of those books than needed for the students and the salesperson paid for them out of her commission.

R311 I don’t think that’s true. I think that’s true of the Democratic Party’s political class and their donors who don’t really want systemic change, but need to find a way to placate their base by creating the illusion of systemic change. So for example, they won’t actually confront the problems with the military industrial complex, but they’ll appoint a woman as Secretary of Defense and by doing so trick everyone into thinking they’re delivering progressive change.

I think most of the SJWs really do want systemic change, but have internalized the belief that it’s impossible to achieve, so they focus on superficial bullshit like going after white people who dress up as Pocahontas for Halloween. You have to remember that Millennials and Zoomers have no memory of a time when politics actually worked in the country to deliver real progressive change the way it often did in the 1900s-1970s. If you were born after 1980, politics has basically been broken your whole life, and whether they would admit or even recognize it to be true I think a lot of these younger SJWs have just been raised to be so cynical about the possibilities of politics that deep down they have no real hope of achieving the kind of real societal changes that the Congress and the courts brought about in the 1960s.

Amy Wax was right, it was just an uncomfortable truth that many people didn't want to hear:

[quote]All cultures are not equal. Or at least they are not equal in preparing people to be productive in an advanced economy. The culture of the Plains Indians was designed for nomadic hunters, but is not suited to a First World, 21st-century environment. Nor are the single-parent, antisocial habits, prevalent among some working-class whites; the anti-"acting white" rap culture of inner-city blacks; the anti-assimilation ideas gaining ground among some Hispanic immigrants. These cultural orientations are not only incompatible with what an advanced free-market economy and a viable democracy require, they are also destructive of a sense of solidarity and reciprocity among Americans. If the bourgeois cultural script — which the upper-middle class still largely observes but now hesitates to preach — cannot be widely reinstated, things are likely to get worse for us all.

Corporate restaurant chains and even independently owned restaurants shouldn't be donating meals and food to healthcare workers at this time. They should be offering meals and other forms of support to non-healthcare workers who have financial issues due to covid. Many healthcare workers aren't hurting for money or food at this time. Help and support should go to the ones who are financially hurting.

There should be a statute of limitations of things people can get "canceled" for. A lot can happen in 5+ years. People can grow, change, and be remorseful for things they said and did back then. And the people who dig through tweets to find something someone posted in 2011 to get them "canceled" have too much time on their hands and need to get a life.

Covid has been such a disappointment. It needed to wipe out at the very least 1-2% of the World's pooulation, preferably 10-20%. But it needed to kill evenly in all areas of the World and in all social strata. A reduction of 10-20% of the population would solve the demographic time bombs in countries like India, Nigeria, etc. It would cause political upheaval in Autoritarian (Russia, etc.) or corrupt (Latin America) countries that would bring about much needed change. And in rich, Western or even Eastern countries, it would bring a sobering up that would put a necessary end to unbriddled capitalism and consumerism. The World can't just go on like it is right now.

Also, if I had been one of those 10-20% killed, then so be it.

Kamala Harris is unelectable. Dems for the forseeable future need to run with an attractive, charismatic man at the top of the ticket. That's the only way they will win in the future.

The Castro brothers, no matter how competent or not, are so ugly that they would never win a general election.

I don’t think they’ll be a gay president in my lifetime but If you asked a team of scientists to come up with a gay man that would appeal to suburban straight women who are likely to vote (which is who Democrats ultimately need to appeal to in order to win), you’d get Chasten.

Just the name "Chasten" sounds dumb. For one thing, it's mispronounced. (Supposed to have the hard A sound, T not enunciated.)

Here are the definitions of "chasten" (American Heritage dictionary):

[quote] 1. To correct by punishment or reproof; take to task.

[quote] 2. To restrain; subdue: chasten a proud spirit.

[quote] 3. To rid of excess; refine or purify: chasten a careless writing style.

I guess definition # 3 was what his parents were going for.

Words and phrases like “liberty,” “freedom,” and “personal responsibility” are nothing but deplorable propaganda at this point.

The first amendment was a bigger mistake than the second amendment. R558 and his anti-GAY hate speech is an example of why. Calling gays the Q word while referring to breeders as “str—ght“ is not just homophobic, it’s fucking incitement to violence at this point.

R581, that is exactly what right wing media and Trump have explicitly trained their base to believe - that Democrats and the media hate them. As someone from the Midwest who moved out East, I have found nothing is farther from the truth. Easterners are mainly indifferent to amused by people from less dense areas. They want them to have a decent life, as long as they don’t kill people or try to push discrimination on others. They want everyone to have health care.

Yet, a chip on one’s shoulder can twist reality. The shocking thing is that most people don’t think about others that much.

"Artist" is a word that has lost all meaning, because it is used to describe people who are anything but.

Actors and actresses are not "artists."

Creativity is dying in America. We do not need another musical based upon 10 or 15 year old movies about teenage girls or closeted gay kids in Iowa.

Reparations is a nonsensical issue.

Liberals can be just as intolerant as conservatives.

Don't expect too much from a Biden presidency. That racist, sexist, irresponsible imbecile is a symptom not the cause of the problems facing America.

"Privilege" is becoming an overused term..

MSNBC can be just as bad as Fox.

GoFundMe pages are forms of begging.

Nobody cares what celebrities have to say, nor do they care what I have to say.

Tweeting your sympathies or posting them on your social media accounts are not the same as traditional methods of expressing sorrow to someone who has suffered a loss like even a simple phone call.

Just because a celebrity goes through something doesn't make me feel that it is now okay to talk about it.
