But here’s my question: Who is telling the Tea Partiers and Trump voters to empathize with the rest of us?

I'm tempted to crack a joke about not supporting lost causes. Tempted, because I think most of the supporters just circle (R) without reading anything else. It's not a matter of convincing people to not be psychopaths; it's a matter of convincing people that the political system is fixable, meaning that the input you feed it actually matters.

The aforementioned joke seems counterproductive toward that aim.

I operate under Crocker's rules. Feel free to be mean to me, if it'll help us communicate more effectively.

Color is not as black and white as we like to think.

Quote from: William Lyon Mackenzie King
There are few men in this Parliament for whom I have greater respect than the leader of the Co-operative Commonwealth Federation. I admire him in my heart, because time and again he has had the courage to say what lays on his conscience, regardless of what the world might think of him. A man of that calibre is an ornament to any Parliament.

Absolute power corrupts absolutely. Which is a problem. If you are powerless.

Is it that hard to recognise that it was just a tv show? It wasn't real?

I posted it here because we've had quotes from people in other threads about how Bill Cosby can't be bad, because Cliff Huxtable was a great dad!

If only Hitler had been an actor rather than an artist. Everything would've been fine.

And Anthony Hopkins must be a cannibal, because Hannibal Lecter was.

Unsuccessful artists always seem to end up fucking bad. Whereas unsuccessful actors end up as excellent waiters I guess
