    There's a clip of Alex Jones losing his mind over the bombing. Apparently the lines have crossed on the graph and now there is more money grifting against Trump than for him.

    You're gonna have to choose, Flag. You can't love both of them anymore. Take a deep breath, and go with your heart.

    Edit: Nope. Jones is walking it back now. He's found his way out of the cognitive dissonance his followers felt when Mommy and Daddy were fighting!!!

    To others: that clip is great because it uses all of Flag's terminology exactly the way he uses it, even down to the meandering delivery. Clearly, Jones has been hypnotized by Flag.

    Wow, look at that! One of their ideological kin in Bannon gets put into the Trump doghouse over the weekend, and now they're turning on il Presidente. Imagine that...

    You gotta love the cognitive dissonance of these people who live in a state that has mostly enacted liberal policies that directly benefit them and yet they vote more and more republican each voting cycle.

    Outside of the Iron Range and the Twin Cities metro area, this state has shaded red for the most part. There are a few blue areas, mostly around the various state universities, but otherwise the politics are controlled by those living in Minneapolis and St. Paul. The suburbs are fairly purple, with occasional hard blue or red thrown in there.

    And most pollsters I recall just did national surveys and had Hillary up by 2 or 3; which, last I checked, is exactly how she did in the popular vote.

    A buddy of mine who is single says that one of the hotter new dating apps or websites out there is based upon hate. Apparently people are matched based upon their hatred of certain things. My buddy claims there are studies out there supporting the idea that hatred of common things is a more reliable indicator of a good match than some of the other basis used by these sites.

    Personally, I'm glad I'm still married.
    That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

    The GOP taps primal responses to hate and fear very effectively. It is what they do to deep the pews and offering plates full. Outside the church doors there are blacks, mexicans, muslims, gays, and socialists wanting to take everything you have. Even though you only think you have it.

    That's genius, do you know which one? I'd love to read the research. Most people are apes and their compatibility probably is based on hate. Count the percentage of time politicians try to inspire, as opposed to the percentage of time they say, "THERE! RED LECTOIDS FROM PLANET 10! EVIL!"

    I'm very glad I'm married -- like the line in When Harry Met Sally, "Tell me I'll never have to be out there again." But 20-something me would have really enjoyed Tinder / Bumble.

    Yeah I kinda know how the breakdowns work and it makes sense. I just find it funny that the people out there obviously don't realize that their government which is mostly dem controlled has benefited them in a lot of ways even if they live all the way out on the iron range or what have you.

    Not sure about the research, but their advertising ideas are pretty funny.

    Look at the rates for attainment of education plays out when viewed at a county-by-county basis. The further you get away from a metropolitan area, the less educated people are. The fewer advanced degrees will be found (not many lawyers and even fewer MDs). People then start to look at and think only of their immediate needs and current situation as they're not often challenged to think beyond that. Be it right or wrong.
