Wasted my first opportunity to vote on George McGovern. Been spending the rest of my life atoning for my sin.

Ronald Reagan and Donald Trump are the two greatest presidents in my lifetime, and possibly the past century.

Barak Obama was the most corrupt in history.

There. That should set the record straight.

Edgework comments on Jul 9, 2019:
I find the timing of this revived case against Epstein suspicious, mainly because the media came out of the gate trying to link him to Trump. If this is the kind of arrows they have left in their quiver, they’re in trouble. Nonetheless, watch the talking points fly. They’ll flog this one for a few weeks until they realize that, once again, they have nothing. Then it’ll be on to something else. It really is time to start thinking seriously about hitting back.

Edgework comments on Jul 2, 2019:
Opposition to Sharia law does not necessarily imply hatred of Muslims as a group. It is, however, important to keep in mind that adherence to Sharia Law does bring with it a hatred of all that western civilization has evolved over the past five or six centuries. The problem with Muslim culture is it never had a Renaissance. Prior to that watershed development in the west, our culture was as bigoted, narrow-minded, intolerant, brutal and intentionally cruel as we find in most Muslim societies today. Keep in mind: the Renaissance didn’t just happen in 1450, like turning on a light switch. Giordano Bruno was burned as a heretic in 1600 for espousing sound scientific principles. Darwin finally released scientific inquiry from the clutches of the church over 150 years ago, but the matter is still unsettled in many quarters. It’s true that Darwin has many problems, but for most of us, these days, the Book of Genesis isn’t among them. Nothing of the sort has modified mainstream Islamic thought. We think of religious belief as falling on a sliding scale, from personal and private, to demonstratively public, to fanatical. There is no sliding scale in Islam. One adheres to the faith, or one is a heretic. We keep hearing so much about the myth of the moderate Muslims, wondering when they will take a stand and recapture their faith from the fanatics who hijacked it. Notice it’s only western politicians like Barak Obama and George Bush who spout such ideas. There are no moderate Muslims. That’s why we haven’t seen them. A serious mistrust of such a culture, vocal in its opposition to all we stand for and all we have accomplished over the centuries, is no phobia. It is self-preservation and common sense. You know the difference between a radical Muslim and a moderate Muslim? A radical Muslim wants to cut your head off because you’re a heretic. A moderate Muslim wants a radical Muslim to cut your head off because you’re a heretic
So, about the concentration camps on the border. [youtube.com]
Edgework comments on Jun 28, 2019:
criminey359 You would have effortlessly fit into the leftist clown car on display the past two nights. Like all of them, you simply posit the “border crisis” as an act of God, like a tornado wiping out a small town in Oklahoma or a passenger jet crashing on takeoff, events calling for a humanitarian response from all who aspire to a standard of good will. God had nothing to do with this. This “crisis” is the product of the cynical, radical left, willing to create and exploit any measure of human suffering, as long as it furthers the political narrative and their agenda. The list of fallacious premises upon which your position rests is both exhaustive and indefensible. A few of the more egregious offenders: * These migrations are nothing more than a spontaneous, grassroots movement of huddled masses yearning to breathe free. Bullshit. This is classic Cloward and Piven. (Look it up if you don’t know who they are.) By your own definition, they are the poorest of the poor, the genuine wretched of the earth. So who’s footing the bill, and why now, at this point in history? Who is orchestrating these mass movements? * It doesn’t matter how they got here. They’re here now and we have to do something. The children, the children, the children!! If the intended result is to overwhelm the system (see the aforementioned Cloward and Piven), and said system is, in fact, overwhelmed, and you now use the situation that you have carefully put into place, as a political club to further your agenda, you are immoral and your claims of compassion are revealed as lies, pure and simple. * They all have a right to be here. In other words, we as a nation have no right to control the integrity of our borders. Why don’t you just say it: you want to eliminate borders, which, is to say, you want the United States to cease to exist as a nation. This has always been the ultimate goal of the left, regardless of whatever “crisis du jour” onto which you piggyback your agenda. Come on: say it; I dare you. * Disagreement with any aspect of the agenda can only be due to racism, bigotry, xenophobia and all round nastiness. I’ll respond to that in the only way it warrants: go fuck yourself.
So about the border concentration camps, just wanted everyone quick opinion on them.

It’s not a concentration camp if you can avoid it by simply walking in the other direction. That’s not a poll. But nice try.
Will President Trump be able to drain the swamp?
Edgework comments on Jun 12, 2019:
It’s always a mistake to predict the future based on circumstances in the present, particularly when the present is in the midst of chaotic transition. Never mind the wins Trump’s already put on the board, the obstacles he still must overcome. When these times are viewed from a distance, the meta story will be that this was when Trump managed to disrupt the status quo so carefully put in place by the left for the past 60 years. Topics ignored for decades are now on the table for discussion. The left has been forced to crawl out from behind the facade that theirs is the true patriotism, and stand unmasked as the Marxist/socialists they’ve always been, with their treasonous intent on full display. In the heartland, a slumbering beast has been shaken awake, and it is in one hell of a bad mood. Jump to no conclusions. The show’s just starting. Now’s when things get interesting.

I love nothing more than watching total frauds like Don Lemon trip over their smug smirks and do a head plant right right on the studio floor. (Is it just me, or does he look like he needed to cook for a few more weeks? Like a pod person who hadn’t gotten all his human features up and running yet.) They keep shooting blanks. And they don’t know it. Please, don’t anyone tell them. It’s too entertaining to watch.

Edgework comments on May 6, 2019:
I think it’s important to know who your characters are, but for me, that involves “seeing” them in different real world settings and forming their personalities that way, rather than answer a template of questions about who they are. They can sit on their front porch sll day long and be who they are. Unless they have the imbalance to their status Quora existence engineered into them from the start. Uou’ll Struggle to find things for them to do, or else you’ll just start grafting plot points onto them without connecting them. For me, this imbalance comes down to two choices: fight or flight. Either the want something or they want to avoid something. Either way they have a reason to get off their butts and make decisions, take actions and cope with the unintended consequences. Plot points tend to attach themselves to characters trying to reestablish balance in their lives.

Edgework comments on Apr 28, 2019:
I follow Ben Shapiro’s way of thinking: if you must debate a leftist (because that’s what PC drones are), your only purpose should be to humiliate them and make them look as ridiculous as possible. Given that nothing a leftist believes is grounded in logic or objective fact, this is usually like shooting fish in a barrel. Of course, your invitations to parties will shrink, but you didn’t really want to hang out with those brain-dead people, did you?

Can anyone explain the alternate reality that Democrats live in ?
Edgework comments on Apr 27, 2019:
Stop calling them Democrats. They all crossed the line years ago. They’re hard left activists following the Alinsky playbook. Just because we normals didn’t notice doesn’t change the fact that we’ve been playing the wrong game; bringing philosophy texts to a knife fight and losing as a result. For the left, the agenda is everything. Objective truth has no meaning. All that matters is political truth, which is anything that advances the agenda. For us, it’s a conversation over different points of view. For them, it’s a religious crusade. We seek to win elections; they seek to burn us at the stake. The hatred they express for Trump is because he chooses not to be complicit in our own destruction. He chooses to fight back. There will, perhaps, be time again for diplomacy, decorum and collegiality in our political discourse. But for now, we’re at war. We need to recognize that whatever they think, do or say, their one overarching priority is destroying us. Once that is recognized, all the questions about why they behave the way they do become easy to answer.

Why Do they Hate Us and How can We Change?
Edgework comments on Apr 24, 2019:
The best change would be to stop agonizing over stupid questions like why “they” hate us. The next best change would be to stop apologizing for the unparalleled success of our culture. The third best change would be to collectively grow a spine and defend a way of life that has resulted in greater freedom from oppression, poverty and ignorance than at any time in history. From time to time I find cockroaches in my house. I don’t worry about how the feel. I spray them.
Can we please have a discussion about the Electoral College?
Edgework comments on Apr 18, 2019:
Just to bring it back to the numbers, the left loves to harp on the fact that Hillary won the popular vote by 3,000,000. But she won California by 4,000,000 votes, which means the tally in the rest of the country puts Trump ahead by 1,000,000. Unless you want California to choose our president for the rest of time, you will see the genius of the structure created by all those “dead, white, land holders,” so many tears ago.

The Fountainhead What can I say about Ayn Rand that won’t start an avalanche of hair-pulling on...
Edgework comments on Apr 16, 2019:
Ayn Rand was an interesting kind of triple threat: a clumsy writer, a naive economist and a somewhat inconsistent philosopher. And yet, somehow the result was far more than the sum of its parts. I always thought she was too early for her own good. She existed in a world where academic argument and presentation was the accepted context for ideas such as hers. She would have fared much better in the est/Forum environment of transformational workshops. She was trying to do through intellectual interaction what is essentially a paradigm shift in worldview, something that is achieved much more successfully in the confrontion with self experience of such seminars. I too was affected by The Fountainhead, but moreso by Atlas Shrugged. While she never created real characters (if your characters are all bad or all good, you haven’t done your job as a writer), but she serves the necessary function of defining the black and white poles, for only the do we have an accurate scale to evaluate the myriad shades of grey in which daily life actually takes place.
Is J.A. ( OF WIKILEAKS) REALLY SETH RICH?
Edgework comments on Apr 15, 2019:
Metadata from the email dumps proves they did not get uploaded from a foreign server. (Bye bye Russian hackers.) It’s impossible to state conclusively since the FBI never actually examined either the DNC servers or John Podesta’s system (your tax dollars at work), but if the emails had been copied directly onto a flash drive, they would have presented the same profile. And with Seth Rich’s murder, no more infodumps were forthcoming.
So.
Edgework comments on Apr 15, 2019:
Until the fabled “moderate Muslims” stand up to publicly disavow the extremists (who they are so fond of assuring us represent a small minority), they’re indistinguishable from one another. When Jerry Falwell said 9/11 was God’s punishment for our tolerance of the gay lifestyle, public leaders both secular and religious couldn’t scream loud enough that “That’s not my God.” That’’s how you tell the difference between the crazies and the sane: you listen to what they say. It’s a self selecting process. Omar has been clear about what she’s been saying from the start. No one—not moderate Muslims, not moderate Democrats—has attempted to separate themselves from her. Draw what conclusions you will, from that
In a nation torn by conflict by the extremes, the United States needs a push toward moderacy.
Edgework comments on Apr 15, 2019:
Did you ever read the book, “Great Moderates In History?” Neither has anyone else. I get your point, but sometimes standing for something and being willing to defend it, even fight for it, is considered extreme.
Ya know.

Is it time to try something new?
Edgework comments on Apr 4, 2019:
How about we find new ways to cross-section the political landscape that aren’t rooted in 20th century Cold War oppositions. It’s happening anyway, as a natural process of the onward March of history. When change is on the table, resistance is futile. It will happen, and it won’t have a lot to do with the ideologues who are only too willing to take credit. No one knows what it means to be Republican or Democrat any more, only that the parties bear so little resemblance to the parties of the 80’s and 90’s that the designations are little more than a technicality. Our problem right now is that most are thinking in terms of what they are not. When someone defines what we really are, and have become, discourse might begin to take place.
I find it harder and harder to find someone who is a true moderate.
Edgework comments on Mar 30, 2019:
I don’t think you are describing a moderate. Just because no one’s coined a label for your positions doesn’t mean they’re not strongly held. Or consistent. When I think of the term moderate, I imagine someone with a crease in his butt from sitting on the fence. As Rush Limbaugh used to say, you’ve never seen a book titled “Great Moderates In History” I think a problem with our political discourse is that we are saddled with categories that date from the Cold War era, or even earlier. I tend towards conservative/Libertarian myself, yet I grant that many of the positions and priorities of the left have merit. Just because they argue for them as ineptly as possible doesn’t alter that. What’s needed are new way to cross-section political thought and a new sense of what the categories are. Until then, the OP will wonder where he belongs. I’d say he belongs right where he is.

Edgework comments on Mar 29, 2019:
I don’t believe anyone “got it wrong.” That sounds like an “Oops, my bad,” moment. This was a two year+ calculated lie designed to first corrupt an election, and then take down a legitimate government. Everyone lied and told themselves it was for a higher calling: history had clearly made a mistake and history had to be put back on track. True, the useful idiots dutifully believed whatever they were fed, but the abandonment of objective truth in favor of political truth— whatever furthers the agenda—was no oversight, no act of carelessness, no well-intentioned goof. It was treason designed post-election to cover the treason committed pre-election. The stakes were high, but if they’d faced anyone besides Trump, someone who would have folded like a cheap camera and resigned, they’d have gotten away with it.
