COMTE is not putting up with any of your bullshit.
Jan 20 COMTE commented on White Nationalist Richard Spencer Punched In the Face During Inauguration Protest.
"Maybe Spencer owes that person money."

Naw, for this type of job you take payment up-front.

@15:

My wife is Canadian, so I have an easy out, if it comes down to that, although personally, I'm more of a "stand and fight" than a "run away! Run away!" kind of guy. But, even I have to admit this constant refighting of the same battles over and over again is draining, and the older one gets the harder it is to pick ones self up off the mat and raise the gloves.

I fear this nation is rapidly approaching a point where the divide between two diametrically opposing points-of-view: liberal, intersectional progressives versus conservative, exclusionary reactionaries; is simply too great to be reconciled in any meaningful way. I don't know how such a separation would manifest, but it seems clear that, barring some actual external threat that might - MIGHT - bring the two sides together, we are going down the road of becoming a perpetually divided nation, and such dis-union cannot be maintained without a radical reconfiguration of our national identity. I won't be around to see it, thank the goddess, but I can well imagine that in 100 years, at most, the "great American experiment" will be over, and something else, hopefully, something better, but probably only so for some of our posterity, will have taken its place.

Yeah, because Conservatives treated Obama with so much respect...

So, you've had a long, intimate relationship with your primary care physician? Do you exchange birthday cards? Had each other over for dinner? Gone on trips together? 99% of people who see doctors, even regularly, probably don't know much more about them than their names.

@10:

I honestly do not believe that, whatever transpires in the next few months/years, the entire nation will go down the road to fascism. We're just too big of a country, and too divided: politically, philosophically, economically, culturally, racially; to ever become the sort of mono-culture that universally adopts that kind of authoritarianism. I'm not saying there won't be large swaths of the country that could go in that direction, but it's also pretty clear there would be a lot of overlap, geographically-speaking, and the enclaves of resistance will be large and virtually impossible to bring under-heel.

"And now, the end is near;
And so I face the final curtain"

Yeah, that sounds about right...

Hey ladies, this guy is a keeper, for sure...

"Buy American," says the spray-tanned traffic cone orange pussy-grabber to his followers - most of whom are wearing hats made in China...

So, you're the one I keep seeing handing out copies of The Watchtower outside the QFC?
