is he really that ignorant, or just blatantly lying as usual?

France, for one, has birthright citizenship - children born to non-French parents in France can claim their French citizenship at 13 if they wish to do so, or at 18, as long as they are still resident and have been educated in France (by simple declaration in both cases)

I was referring to Clinton in specific.

You know I’m not entirely serious and am not suggesting I want her as a candidate again.

But it would be gold to see all the smug get flipped on its head.

GOP: The 2nd amendment is sacred even if the Founding Fathers didn’t anticipate semiautomatic weapons.

Also GOP: the 14th amendment, meh.

White Supremacy means stopping foreigners from becoming citizens. Pure and simple. Nothing to do with the interpretation of the amendment. Kavanaugh was key to get the Constitution shredder going.

SCOTUS refused to hear the Pennsylvania gerrymandering case - a win for the Democrats. So there's still some hope that the courts are capable of doing the right thing.

who wants to play "smack the twenty-something"?

Quote:

I have ADHD, and it makes it hard for me to do certain tasks where the payoff is far off in the future or abstract. I don’t find it intrinsically motivational. The amount of work logically isn’t that much: Fill out a form, mail it, go to a specific place on a specific day. But those kind of tasks can be hard for me to do if I’m not enthusiastic about it. That’s kind of a problem with social attitudes around, you know, “It’s your civic duty to vote.” I once told a co-worker I didn’t vote, and she said, “That’s really irresponsible,” in this judgmental voice. You can’t build a policy around calling people irresponsible. You need to make people enthusiastic and engaged.

This whole generation being told they can't do things because they have "ADHD" (with basically no diagnosis, ever, just adults telling them they do) and living with the expectation that they will be hand-held through life is just infuriating. And it's my generation and I see it in my friends all the time and it drives me nuts. At least my friends vote, though.



That person is just so fucking lazy and people have told them their whole life that it's OK because they just can't concentrate.



(Please note I'm not saying there's no such thing as ADD or ADHD, because it's not what I'm saying at all.)

The truth of the matter is that historically young people vote in lower numbers than old people. Yeah, we are cracking jokes about millennials, but it's not like this is any different than Gen-X not voting in the '90s.

To me I've always been sad that the demographic that is MOST impacted is the one that doesn't vote. Hopefully that changes, but I'm not holding my breath.
