I would have thought zephyrpilot being outed as everyone's favorite white nationalist former member orgieoeireoperia would have gotten more of a reaction in here.

He played it better than most, but it wasn’t at all surprising.

If memory serves me correctly, someone even asked if it we were joking about his assumed identity.

I deffo said no.

the only thing that surprises me is that he'd have any interest in continuing to troll this place in such a low-key way. i can't fathom why, or what he gets out of it at this point, and that's why i was skeptical that it was actually him. but i'm not really surprised that it was indeed orgorp.

So Mnuchin refuses to release trumps tax returns. Is there anything that the republicans will not block in order to get to the bottom of why trump is such a criminal??

Seriously how can they protect someone who is so clearly guilty?

Is there something somebody can do to just bypass all the GOP's attempts to hide Trump's tax returns?

So he can make another post on r/The_Donald about how everyone's mean to him despite his thinly veiled concern trolling and bad faith 'arguments'.

It was obvious it was him.

Maybe he's back to hitting on his cousin.

I'm not really sure which idea I prefer, I see pros and cons of both paths. I guess the biggest pro I see for public option is that it might have a chance in hell of passing.
The public option doesn't work. You have to kill private insurance. Healthcare can't be a right and a commodity. There's no middle ground here. It will never be sustainable until you get single payer. This isn't some litmus test thing. There's no fathomable way to make any of it work until private insurance is killed. Compromise doesn't win this, because you can't compromise with companies built to profit off suffering.

Don’t understand how people don’t understand this. The concept of healthcare and health insurance working in parallel is invalid. Insurance can top off health care though in series.

I am always befuddled by reactions like this. Of course they'll protect him. It's in their interests to do so. Trump is more brazen, rude, and stupid than anyone before him, but that's really the only way in which he's different than your average Republican. Anything to get money and power. What motive do they have to do anything but protect their own? Every Republican politician is an immoral bloodthirsty ghoul who wants nothing but money and power. Every single one. Understanding that makes their motivations very simple to understand and predict.

There is no greater sense of good here. "Have you at last no sense of decency sir?" is a line that would get you laughed out of a room. When has decency mattered one iota? If it ever really did, it was a very long time ago.

I agree with you. Well, I guess my reaction was not of surprise, I mean it’s obvious they will protect trump at all costs. I guess my reaction comes more out of the frustration that this administration is getting away with murder and nothing seems to get done about it. The will to protect trump has done far more damage to the Republican Party than if they would have done the right thing at the beginning. Ie they should have dealt with him before they nominated him as I recall many republicans at the time were speaking against him. As soon as he got nominated they all coward and went back on their words like Paul Ryan.

This is easy (and I don't mean anyone in this room, alas)

People don't understand because the vast majority of the electorate, both young and old, are either stupid, don't care to actually research what's been said and accept sweeping generalities, or a combination of the two.
