I've looked into other places (countries), but, from what I've seen, there really isn't a better place than here. Hopefully, if and when things do break down/apart, it'll revert back to more of a localized economy. We're now much better set up for that. It really is a matter of time. I just hope it's a long time.
Do I think it'll be a long time from now? 🥛⬅ half empty.

I do think a ton of antifa related social media stuff is purposefully mocking them.. It has to be. No one can really be that stupid.

I think even if a Dem gets elected next time, they won't go hard left.. No one wins with hard left or hard right. It's more profitable to keep the status quo mostly intact. Maybe if Trump actually manages to drain the swamp and make meaningful changes.. Then I could see a mainstream candidate reinstate that stuff.. But that's about it realistically.

Not to say the past absolutely defines the future, but not too long ago the Dems had the Prez, House and Senate. We got Obamacare and not much more, and then they got stomped in the midterms for doing it. At least with our system, the carnage typically lasts only until the next election, when the other side wakes up and mobilizes. That's not to discount the attempts to stack the voting base with legalized illegals, but this is how it's gone previously. And Trump may well get to shift the SCOTUS, which may ultimately determine what happens with immigration. SCOTUS lasts for a lot longer than congressional terms, so that may be the most important factor of all, at least for our lifetimes.

I agree that SCOTUS has definitely gone our way, and if RBG vacates her seat in the next 18 months, it'll be an overall epic win that should last a few decades.

But while Obama didn't do much policy-wise aside from make the cost of my medical insurance double, the damage he did with stoking the victimhood fires set us back a generation or two.

While I didn't vote for him, I thought a positive side effect of having a 2-term black president would be to finally stamp out the notion of disadvantaged people. Your guy is president, you've made it, anyone can make it, so let's stop talking about racial shit once and for all. I couldn't have been more wrong, and I'd never have guessed that he'd be the one to poke the bear and tell people that they are victims and all of their problems are because the deck is stacked against them. SMDH, that's the worst thing you can tell a person, as it completely removes any incentive to try. What a shitty president and worse human being.

But that's only because they fear losing the next election right now and in the past. When demographics shift far enough in favor of dems where they have no fear of ever losing again, the 💩is going to hit the fan. All that crazy crap they talk about with open borders, "free stuff for everybody!", no age of consent, full on socialism and NWO will happen.

I know it sounds like hyperbole, but the dems will have nothing to lose. They want the doors open to the 3rd world because look at what the 3rd world votes for. If you guys think that the 3rd worlders are gonna see the light of day and vote for less government, you're insane. They want free stuff. They don't give a rats ass about anything else.

I don't even know who Travis Tritt is but I'd totally go for this. 😄


That's so very true :)

FYI, Travis Tritt is a country singer who was extremely popular in the late 80's and most of the 90's. He has/had a mullet and writes a lot of songs that are on the cheesy side (ballad, truck-bro, and patriotic types). But he's most widely known for the song "Here's a Quarter, Call Someone who Cares". He's a walking amalgamation of every country music/redneck stereotype, and he still manages to be awesome.

Agreed that Obama did much more social damage than policy damage. With the improvements being made to employment and well being for all the "disadvantaged" during Trump's tenure, I hope much of this can be reduced, at least for the non/lesser indoctrinated, particularly if he gets a second term. It will be quite the irony if a lot of (legal) minorities swap loyalties after doing much better under "evil whitey" Trump than they ever did under Obama.

Also agreed. That's a lot of why Trump got elected in the first place. Illegal immigration was a huge issue, and still is. If we deserve to continue to remain a (relatively) free country, we will finish the job with a second term and enough of a majority of conservatives (or at least people who pretend to be) in the Congress and SCOTUS to see it through to prevent the scenario you have laid out from happening.

BTW, how did this discussion end up in this thread? :fuckit:

Cullud Pueepul? :troll:

Southun inbred inflection and dialect (at least the Hollywood portrayal of it) really does stick in the brain...

Forrest can take part of the blame for that too.

Hollywood ruins everything. I've never heard anyone use either in a derogatory fashion IRL. More often than not, the older generation just calls them "colored"... and I don't know if that's better or worse, as none of them are used in a bad fashion. It's all about context, and in our PC world, there is no room for nuance, intent, circumstance, or time period.

For instance, I heard my grandfather tell many stories about a black guy who worked for him (@ 1950-ish), and he called him N!%%er Bill. Lest any of you think my grandfather was a raging hollywood stereotype southern racist, that was the guy's name. That's what everybody called him, black, white, or otherwise. That's what he went by. It wasn't said maliciously or to put him down. As I hear it, they liked him a lot. He was apparently a cool dude. And it was in a time when that was perfectly acceptable. Obviously that wouldn't fly today, but back then it was just what the guy went by.

It's tough to say the right thing all the time, as the right thing is constantly changing. Plus, we don't know who's changing it, why they're changing it, why the old name is now bad, or why the new thing is any better. "Colored People" is bad, but NAACP hasn't bothered to change their name to NAAPoC. That would be too inconvenient for them. :whatever:

I remember when I was little, my mother once refered to black people as "Negroes". She isn't from the south and we don't live in the south. It struck me as odd back then and still does a little when I remember it now.

Back in the mid 90's I worked a security job for P&G and there was this huge black dude that worked there. It got around that he was "involved" with this younger white girl that also worked there, and the guy was married. I was an assistant shift supervisor, so I attended a few management meetings and this was a topic among them during one meeting. You should have heard the crap those guys were saying! Anyway, the guy left for other reasons but started looking into suing security outfit. His lawyer called me and wanted to know if I knew if anything "inappropriate" was ever said. I was afraid of losing my job so I never said anything (in all fairness, I never actually talked to this lawyer, he just left me messages asking me to call him). I felt bad knowing what I did, and I eventually quit because they sucked for many many reasons. This same guy also worked as a fireman in the community, so I tracked him down at one of the stations and told him EVERYTHING since I no longer had anything to loose. He didn't really have a chance to react because right then the alarm went off and he had to obviously leave in a hurry.

And I never heard from or saw him again.

I still feel bad that I knew something and didn't tell him earlier. I never took part in the conversations about him or said anything inappropriate myself, but I felt like I was still a party to it by staying silent.

It's zoomed in. I wonder if many others are looking elsewhere. Two guys on the right appear to be looking not left and the guy behind the guy with sunglasses is also looking somewhere else.
