@6, I don't think he needs to be in a different room from his baby to take the picture. He just needs to take it from a slightly different angle. Don't send pictures of your baby in your sexts. Jesus, I can't believe I just had to type that. Baby's don't belong in sexy pictures. Ever. Just leave the baby out of all of your sexual behaviors. Always!

I hope he presses charges against that bitch (the one who distributed the pictures) and she goes to jail.

I hope he sues the "news"paper that publicized the pictures.

I hope he gets some serious therapy and maybe a little less time with his son because that's really fucked up.

But I want my revolution noooooowwwwwwww!!!!!
And it has to be done exactly as I say, no compromise, even with people who mostly agree with me but might have a slightly different way of doing things.
And I won't work with that guy. Or that one. Or those people over there. They think they had some part in this revolution but it was all me, only me!
And we can only take money from poor people. No rich people are allowed to donate to the cause, even if they agree with it.
Aug 10, 2016 Root commented on Did Donald Trump Just Encourage His Followers to Shoot Hillary Clinton?.
@ Raindrop. If saying the 2nd Amendment is the only solution to Hillary's appointments isn't advocating murder then what exactly do you think it is? I'm honestly curious what you think he was suggesting if not threats and murder.
May 31, 2016 Root commented on Do You Still Trust Hillary Clinton?.
Wait, I thought we were supposed to hate Hillary because she was too moderate on health care reform. Now you're saying we're supposed to hate her because she was too far to the extreme left?

Hmmm, maybe her years of experience in government has taught her that coming to Congress with an extreme position will get shot down so you have to make smaller changes, little by little over time.

Wow, this is even more useless than most petitions.

Didn't the angry toucan just say your primary doesn't count? Why bother?
May 24, 2016 Root commented on Your Donald Trump Reader.
@36. Exactly. I can't believe people are still claiming he said that. Infuriating!
May 24, 2016 Root commented on Your Donald Trump Reader.
@12, I don't disagree with you but your (our, I voted for him too) candidate lost this election. The next step is that you hold your nose and vote for the person who doesn't intend to destroy everything you care about.

The important next step that many (especially liberal) voters ignore is to keep working at it. Keep working until the liberal 18-29 year olds are 30-39 year olds and have "trained in" a new generation of 18-29 year olds. We get to watch the over 60 crowd die off and leave the country to a new generation.

The strong liberal agenda isn't happening this year, and realistically might not happen next year. The kind of serious change we want takes time and if liberals get dispirited and lazy (as often happens in non-presidential election years) then conservatives win.

You want to see real change happen, get your liberal friends to reliably vote in state and local elections. The only way to get the House back from extremist conservatives is to undo their redistricting which happens at the state level.

You seem to be under the mistaken impression that anti-SCS conservative politicians think keeping drug users alive is a valid goal. Unless it's their own child, they're happy to see every drug user's corpse piled in every alley.
