5:19 AM yesterday Theodore Gorath commented on Investors Pull Out of Markets, Fearing That Trump Does Not Have Their Backs.
Isn't it funny how when the market drops a tick it is all directly Trump's fault, but when they close at record high, it obviously has nothing to do with Trump, and is just normal fluctuation?

Such blatant fallacious and self-serving "thinking."

But then again, anyone who has spent any time at all here knows that Charles Mudede knows absolutely nothing about economics, or even the most basic of market forces.

@12: We have a bunch of alt-right conspiracy weirdos advocating for an investigation into missing black and Hispanic women, whereas liberals were completely, oddly silent.

And when you have a state of affairs that is completely contrary to what one naturally expects, we call that....

@32: The first page of my Google search has three articles by you about her, and a few articles in other papers about how you keep writing and tweeting about her. I did not venture off the first page to see how many their actually were, and did not count things like Blabbermouth, multiple articles by other Stranger bloggers on your views about Stein, or podcasts. Why tell such a blatant, easily disproven lie? Bush league.

But why ignore everything else I said just to tell a lie about Jill Stein? Commenters were frequently begging you stop obsessing over Stein.

@28: My position of course, depends on if they guy really will fight for LGBT rights/protections, so I am taking him at his word based on the interview.

Of course if he is just lying, then the point is moot. It certainly is a possibility, and I imagine locals would have a better idea of this, I just know what the above interview posited.

@27: Personally, no I do not think that is newsworthy, if the people involved do not seem to care, especially if said Jewish person is running for office in an area where other Jewish people are struggling to have their rights recognized, and the politician identifies and agrees with their plight. I guess it is really up to the voter.

Also, I never said pointing it out was an obsession with political purity, I was asking how your constant screeds against voting for Jill Stein in favor of right-center Hillary Clinton was any different from someone voting for this guy, whose endorsements may be questionable, although he represents a greater good for the local LGBT population (based on his responses, anyway).

Because this is personal to you, and it comes through very clearly in the interview that you are taking this very personally. Whereas when you were not taking it personally when it came to Stein v. Clinton, you advocated repeatedly that the greater good is better than political purity, but here, when it hits closer to home, you say the opposite.

What is ironic about the missing girls in DC is that the pizzagate folks have been pushing that really hard, as they feel it will lead to some sort of smoking gun. It was completely ignored until LL Cool J tweeted about it.

@25: It just seems very odd to try to bring this guy down when, as you put it, LGBT rights are under attack, considering how he appears to be a big supporter of LGBT rights. If he uses those bigoted endorsements to win office and make things better for LGBT folks, isn't that the political game? Isn't that the greater good?

And not being upset because he is not "out" enough for you? Seems like the LGBT community in Alaska may have more important things to worry about than your personal feelings about this, and may appreciate an ally in government.

Isn't the drive for complete political purity over the greater good what you railed about over and over when it came to Jill Stein? How is this any different, really?

It is ok for people to think that their sexual identity is not their most important, defining characteristic.

It really reads like you are needling this guy for not pointing out his homosexuality to everyone he interacts with.

@20: Extremely weak and unimaginative, even for you.

@22: Trump wears poorly fitting suits, clips his tie with tape, and his hair is a nightmare. As for your second question, probably.

@24: No way, I worked hard to get out of Baltimore, up to and including eating Ramen noodles and McDonald's once and a while. Also "white terrorism" what the hell is that? Is that one of those weird racist qualifiers like "white slavery?" Who said that white people can not commit terrorism?
Mar 27 Theodore Gorath commented on Kshama Sawant and Other Jill Stein Supporters Must Know That Trumpcare's Demise Is Not a Real Victory.
This bill was never meant to pass, it was solely a way for Trump to seem like he is trying, and as a way to embarrass Ryan and force him out of the Speaker role.

So good that the ACA is sticking around, but this is not really a "loss" for Trump, or the larger GOP.
