Trump did something stupid. Trump will continue to do stupid things. It's like an unbreakable curse.

“Political abuse of psychiatry in the Soviet Union
There was systematic political abuse of psychiatry in the Soviet Union, based on the interpretation of political opposition or dissent as a psychiatric problem. It was called "psychopathological mechanisms" of dissent.”

Shocking that the Neo Marxist use the same tactics.

Moksha takes no pains to hide the fact that he is a penguin. His only characteristic in common with human marxists is that his name begins with an 'm'.

And no, calling someone stupid has nothing to do with the abuse of psychiatry for political purposes under the Soviet regime.

Otherwise you would presumably have to accuse Trump of Soviet style abuses when he labels his political opponents as 'low IQ'.

What exactly is the generally prescribed psychiatric medication for doing stupid things?

Asking for, ummm... a friend.

It doesn’t matter. As noted by multiple users it’s only important the nonsense was spewed. The sheer act of just saying anything is sufficient to make their base feel like they won. It’s really that simple. Note the post by EAllusion with regard to Chris What’shisnuts. Perfect example.

can't wait for you to experience the totalitarian socialism you so desire.

They would have banned ‘the president of the United States’ already if they could have. But the pretense they use is just that.

Its purpose is purely discriminatory. It is about power. Youll learn that either the easy way or the hard way.

Its (still) a free country. Your welcome to go to china and live your fantasy.

John Bolton only decides to testify right after Trump does what Bolton has been wanting all along. Declaring war against Iran. Coincidence?

Quid pro quo it seems. Trump needed a good witness and Bolton was just the man to step up to the plate. The cost was war with Iran and now Bolton will say whatever Trump wants him to say. Banana Republic here we are.

Ah yes, totalitarian socialism - when a private citizen recommends a private company enforce its terms of service consistently among its private users.

CBP is now indefinitely detaining people of Iranian heritage if they "seem suspicious" regardless citizenship status. Reports are several dozen people have already been caught up.

CBP has issued a statement saying these reports are false, but they also lie a lot, so that's not terribly helpful.


And now we have this:

https://www.latimes.com/world-nation/st ... ada-border

Testimony from Iranian-Americans giving detailed accounts of being detained and questioned at the US-Canada border.

So Trump tweeted that we're not leaving Iraq until Iraq pays us money. DOes this mean he doesn't consider Iraq a sovereign nation, and that we're not an occupying force against their will?

The Republican party is starting to lean hard into parlaying recent news into portraying Democrats as pro-Iran traitors. At the same time, nary a peep from Republican leaders on the President promising war crimes and to usurp Constitutional authority.

Trump is a serious problem, but the Republican party is a more serious problem that will outlive him. I don't see our way out of this.

So you expect Bolton will perjure himself for the momentary pleasure of a war-starting political assassination?

What are going to be the actual consequences for perjury in the Senate at this point? Anything?

I still want to hear from Bolton et. al. And I especially want to hear from their paper trails. But I'm under no illusions that people with a reputation for shameless dishonesty will neccessarily tell the truth under oath.

About as fair as seperate but equal.

Its just so odd. The sophistry you all use is so obviously erronous i can't believe that even you believe it.
