@5 - As a POW John McCain suffered enough that I can forgive his racists leaning toward North Vietnamese.

As a POW who suffered torture and then endorsed the US use of torture, I cannot forgive him that crime against humanity.

Those who fail to learn from history are destined to repeat it.

What lessons can be learned from history? That demagoguery and propaganda are useful strategies for political power. @3 & @4 want the reader to believe that it is the left that uses these tactics. I disagree. Research the "dog-whistle" politics of the late 20th century and decide for yourself.

As a gay man I've seen the GOP embrace the "Religious Right" for decades. I've seen the GOP remain silent while horrendous calumnies were heaped upon my community, not just silent but actual embracing of the hate speech to gain political power.

Now we see the alt-right trying to convince today's electorate that somehow advocating for equality is "racist" because ??? - That the GOP really cares about minorities because ???

The AIDS crisis of the 80's and the callous disregard for our lives was merely one unforgivable sin of the GOP. I proudly declare my disdain for their party and personal disgust of anyone supporting them. This is absolutely identity politics and I'm proud to identify as a Democrat - a bleeding heart liberal democrat at that.

Life isn't easy, we all weigh the sins of others and decide for ourselves how best to proceed. Look at the policy platforms of the two parties and decide for yourself which party best represents your values (at the party's best) - No party is without sin.

Not good enough Mariners. Fire this racist.
Sep 6 Kelly L commented on Phyllis Schlafly.
I don't mind speaking ill of the dead. When that woman was alive she made me ill. I'm feeling much better now.

This looks like a vendetta. What did she do to deserve this all out hatred?

"Apple is appealing the decision"

Funny, I find the decision very appealing. Too bad the GOP blocks America from collecting corporate taxes owed to us. Too bad about our infrastructure falling apart do to lack of resources...

@8 You're an idiot. Birth control is a lot cheaper than an abortion, and both are cheaper than raising a child to adulthood.

However, that's not the main reason you're an idiot. It is because you assume she isn't capable of being responsible for her actions. In retrospect "idiot" is the wrong word, misogynistic a-hole is more appropriate.

I recommend this flick. An altered mindset helps.

Portland's racism...

Of course the entire city is made up of nothing but racists. Great way to describe a community.
