So, seems pretty safe to assume that not only is Trump colluding with the Saudis to cover up the torture and murder of a journalist for money, but also in 2016 as well. Right?

this shit is on the exact same level as "seems pretty safe to assume that [insert benghazi conspiracy theory here]. right?"

It's not - at least in the current situation. No real ties to the 2016 election that are known.

Trump, in his own words, spoke of the large sums of money Saudis give him in the campaign trail. Knowing what we know of him, saying "he's doing [insert horrible thing here] because of money" has a shit ton more credibility than anything related to Clinton and Benghazi.

well yes, obviously everything trump does is "because of money". he's the literal dictionary definition of a kleptocrat.

but taking one nugget of truth and extrapolating it into proof/strong evidence for a number of other things is something i can't really get behind. not to suggest irvine is doing it for nefarious purposes as many on the right tend to do (someone vaguely related to the clintons died so it must have been killary giving direct orders), but it isn't a great look in a place that is already teetering dangerously on the edge of echo-chamber territory.

I’m not sure echo chamber is the right phrase you’re looking for there Dave, but I agree. More like conspiracy.

by "echo-chamber territory" i meant FYM itself - aside from the occasional drive-by "fuck the lazy poors and the evil socialists who want to help them" ranting-at-strawmen from the usual suspect, this place has really become the same half-dozen or so of us lefties chatting about current events and agreeing with each other for the most part.

i mean, i like chatting with you guys about this stuff and having a place to safely blow off steam about dipshit donnie's latest antics but it's not like we still have anything resembling the debates and discussions that we used to have here.

Oh you’re strictly referring to here. Well, I tend to try to inject some varying angles into it, despite by position being established or understood.

yes, that would have been nice if at least one of them didn't turn out to be a racist piece of shit.

Or actually stopped with the cutesy/vague one-liners and stuck around long enough to have a proper, legitimate conversation.

And this isn't unique to here anyways. This is what's happening to discourse in general.

Yes, it is entirely awkward that many hold the belief but none attempt to explain it.

if you're referring to this, i hadn't seen it before now, and yes now it's certainly very safe to assume that.

apologies for my wrong assumptions earlier.

It’s cool. My post was a little drive-by, but I had just read that article.

Are they in very good health, intelligent, empathetic, compassionate, keep up/know in general about current events and culture, etc.

Maybe try something new to discuss?
I def need this place to vent, sometimes I hear something I haven't yet heard about, etc.

I do have a question for ya.
Steve Harper was a Conservative PM for you guys? Right before Truedu?

What constitutes a Canadian Conservative?
Is it like sliding a range of policies rightward on a left - right continium? More complex? Etc.
