But hey, if a history of bigoted bullshit is what you hate about the Democrats, you're not going to get any better with the Republican party that absorbed much of that bullshit and carries it forward with voter ID laws and gerrymandering aimed at disenfranchising minority voters.


Yeah, it makes me genuinely worried as to what the education system is doing down there. It sometimes seems like we learn more American history in school up here in Canada then kids do down there.

Yep. We're talking about a business model that essentially rests on "Convince us you deserve the product you're paying for" and can directly increase its profits by denying its service to the customers that need it most.

Doesn't help that the OP was linking a video from Prager "University". Saw this add for them on youtube yesterday that genuinely gave me the creeps: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xUck8BujLlI

The language and tone feels straight out of some cult indoctrination practices.

Okay, the "I show these videos to my kids so they can defend their values at school" one was certainly kind of creepy.

But yeah, I remember PragerU coming up in another thread a while back. They're kind of awful. They're also even less of a "university" than Trump U was.

As for this video in particular it becomes more dubious once you look up who Carol Swain is. ( Hint: She's the sort of person that write's books with titles like "How Liberalism Steals Our Children's Hearts And Minds" and thinks BLM are Communists. ).

Eh, I am not going to include Congress's refusal to help the President push legislation that would help Americans as a negative of the President. That is a shortcoming of Congress, there is literally nothing a President can do about a do-nothing Congress.


I have mixed thoughts about that. Sure, there's only so much the President can do when Congress won't cooperate, but skill in diplomacy and political negotiations can mitigate that to an extent. That's why Jimmy Carter had as much trouble as he did; as a Washington outsider, he simply didn't know how to "wheel and deal". A more recent example would be Trump, who's inability to negotiate over a health care bill he likely didn't understand was a major reason it didn't pass despite the GOP being in control of congress.

Yes ><

I have 3 American friends spread across 2 states and I've had similar conversations with them about what they learned in high school. It was enlightening but also baffling and occasionally a little scary that things that were omitted. It's surreal to me that you can have a totally different standard and quality of education just by crossing state lines.

Given how many of them are conspiracy theories and sourced to shit like WND, no.

Look, if the Clinton's actually murdered people that were inconvenient for them then Anthony Weiner would be spread across 4 garbage bags somewhere off the coast of California by now.

This might be worth bumping since someone else started a thread on this today, but I closed it because this one was still open. Feel free to continue discussion here.

If you are interested in what others said there, that might not get said here, here's a link /forumtopic-993779/true-history-of-the-democrat-party (Note, you won't be able to post there because it's closed, but since some people wrote interesting things there, I wanted to give it chance to be viewed)

Hey why do you guys prefer old thread resurrection instead of creating new threads? It's the opposite of most places so I'm curious why you do it this way.

Any moderated forum usually prefers consolidated topics to multiple threads about the same topic. I'm not sure what you're talking about.

If a topic is happening often enough for us all to go "This topic again?" then yeah, there's no sense having multiple threads.

We don't always resurrect old threads. It depends largely on how long it's been since the last post in the "old" thread. Currently if something's been inactive for more than two months and a new thread on the same topic comes up we're more likely to close the old one and leave the new thread open. But if it's been less than two months we'll close the new one. I know two months might seem too long to some people, but when I first started moderating the usual practice was to leave the old thread open for even longer.

I've had forums that lock threads after getting to so many pages because it became an unreadable mess. Typically if the same thread isn't on the first two pages then its open game.

in this case it is, because you didn't do any of the basic research yourself
