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.

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

"There'd better be three million dollars worth of sodomy going on here or we've made a poor financial decision." Posting it mainly for that joke. Anyway, couldn't find the original article but here's another one: http://www.newsmax.com/US/samford-university-lgbt-group-donation/2017/07/20/id/802819/

No matter what happens, no matter what my last words may end up being, I want everyone to claim that they were:
"If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine."
Aww, you guys rock. :)  I feel the love... and the pitchforks and torches.  Tingly!

Freedom seldom means the same thing to a wolf that it means to a lamb. If a shelter is built to protect the lambs, the wolves howl that the lambs have lost their freedom. Of course, public programs and collective bargaining restrict some kinds of freedom, but they may safeguard or create other kinds of freedom of greater importance.
