commented on Alito's Eye Roll
When Samuel Alito becomes a member of a class of people that has been systematically marginalized by a member of a group that Ruth Bader-Ginsburg is a member of, AND THEN the supreme court hears a case on a law meant to protect members of Alito's class from that systematic marginalization, AND THEN the court rules to gut the protections of that law, AND THEN Bader-Ginsburg roles her eyes at Alito's reading of his dissent, then we can discuss the strangers reaction to that event.

Apparently obesity meets the medical definition of disease. Unless you are a medical expert who wishes to provide a dissenting medical opinion, please stfu.

I thought the lesson was that factually-laughable right-wing fantasies about the left conspiring to bring down a country from the inside make powerful propaganda.
Or was it that hyper-polarized multi-party electoral systems are inherently unstable, and that the resulting political instability tends to foment distrust of the government, which further benefits the fringe parties.
Or maybe it was that electing a weak, prussian monarchist as president would only enable the eventual take over by right-wing parties.
