Say what you want about the guy, but he’s aged pretty well.

He has! I was just a girl when he was big, but girls listen to music and enjoy dance moves and weird pants as much as the teens.

Good to see Facebook was serious about stopping fake news.

I don’t know if they really stop links and articles that people share. I do get less “sponsored” fake news now though.

At least the maker included fox news! Even they must be too communist for this guy.

He’s a libertarian of the sort that never does anything and blames everyone else.

Then he bitches about how companies are destroying the environment. Cause reasons.

Yesterday a friend of mine with several severe illnesses that have rendered her unable to work or even leave the bed most days declared that she was abandoning leftism because of the plastic straw debate “red pilling” her so badly.

Yes, @JonRowe, it goes straight to your point about the issues the mandates have with disadvantaging folks with disabilities, but also, I’m not exactly sure how signing on with the political party that is literally trying to destroy the only insurance that sustains your life over a couple of FB arguments with liberal friends over recycling practices is gonna make things better in the long-term. . .

Yeah someone pulling themselves over to the party of the crazy over plastic straw bans already was on that side to begin with.

Especially since I think that with the uproar about this, many future laws/bans will take care to ensure the disabled community is consulted.

So she’s upset that starbucks won’t give her a plastic straw, but is cool if the ADA is repealed and she is no longer able to actually get into the starbucks at all.

Seems legit.

Same here, tbh. On the one hand, I feel horribly for my friend, who genuinely deals with a life and health situation that is so monumentally terrible that it would destroy me in half a day, and she’s fought through it for a decade. Seeing folks who are ostensibly your allies as “attacking” you for using the straws you need to be able to drink without covering yourself in said drink, especially when juggling so many other oppressive stressors in your life, has got to be very overwhelming feeling, and she’s definitely prone to getting overwhelmed by it all and snapping at folks sometimes.

On the other, well, at the very core of my being, I can’t conceive of how any reasonably good person could ever seriously consider moving right on an issue, regardless of their frustrations with the Left-as-it-stands. Especially when choosing to do so, if said move successfully moved the national needle at all, would literally worse for you than the worst of whatever you’re afraid the left is striving for.

Also, you know, when said “attacks” were literally anything but that :-/

Well there is this deal with the reality that, except for Armando and the Buddha, annoyance can overwhelm reason and lead to craziness. Self righteousness on the Right about morality, sex, etc. annoys the hell out of me, especially given the reality of the statistics on red states (higher divorce rates, etc.). By the same token, I can see how the self righteousness on the left about things like the environment can piss people off no end, to the extent they take ridiculous positions.

I’ll give a non-political example. I’m a parrot owner, and often read parrot-related web sites but so many of the self-declared “parrot experts” are such self-righteous jerks (PEOPLE WHO FEED PEANUTS TO PARROTS ARE EVIL!!!) that it makes me crazy-insane. I’m currently on a parrot-intartube hiatus, until my frustration abates.

It’s one of those inherent problems with democracy: with popular sovereignty comes emotional voting and at the moment the US Right has been doing a better job of exploiting emotion.

Strictly speaking my reason cannot be overwhelmed solely because it does not exist.

I’ve never heard this. Please PM me info when you have time so as not to derail the thread with parrot related gossip. :)
